@  Fire Blazer : (12 January 2019 - 08:55 PM) tho personally I guess I'm not too afraid of responding to old messages anyway sometimes, haha
@  Fire Blazer : (12 January 2019 - 08:54 PM) to have discussions where people respond at their own convenience
@  Fire Blazer : (12 January 2019 - 08:54 PM) forums could still be used but we'd have to make a bit of an effort I guess
@  Fire Blazer : (12 January 2019 - 08:54 PM) I agree with Mage Girl/Cero/Elwood/Kirant lolol
@  xcrash1998 : (12 January 2019 - 10:15 AM) And yeah missing stuff on discord is easy depending on when most people are online
@  xcrash1998 : (12 January 2019 - 10:11 AM) I think there are just fewer people interested in taking part on forums since most information is already accesible trough the many means.
@  Mercurius : (09 January 2019 - 02:46 AM) Well, at the same time I also don't frequent most of the discord channels I'm a part of, though.

I'm down for this, but in a way, having more buying options is better for most people, I think. Like, if you just package everything together and it's super expensive...

 

I guess for now it's once again in the air, who knows how it'll turn out in the end...

maybe it'll just be another option like some people had assumed would happen when the multiple games thing was announced in the first place. I can't see them going back on the whole two separate games idea entirely since that was kind of a thing at E3.

mhm, you have a point. I dunno, it's just kind of weird at this point, since they haven't been super transparent about what they're doing. clearly there are two different games being made and the like, but the pre-ordering situation and whether there will be a special edition or not is still kinda up in the air... I guess we just can't do much except wait for the release date to get closer so they can give us more info >_<

I hope there is a special edition. Would make it so that only the DLC path will be tied to one of my 3DS's.

that's actually a good point that I didn't think o-

 

...

 

waaaaait a second, since when do you have multiple 3DS's anyway?! ...actually, you may have mentioned this but my memory is bad. Awakening 3DS + New 3DS? idk

 

I only got the Japanese version digital so I'd like the SE for that reason. I mean, it might be a mediocre game IMO, but I've still got enough loyalty to the series to want to have the physical goodies. I'm just going to, you know, think two or five times over before I actually expect anything awesome, or get it.

Yup, me and my brother switch off on which DS we have during the school year, and since we both play FE it would be nice to have two paths not be locked to one of them.

that's kind of odd but yeah I wish Nintendo would like cater to rare situations/minorities more by making their things more... flexible and stuff, I dunno, like obviously it's not easy but in general people who share systems or have multiple ones or want to import games have issues so yeah... idk

Importing becomes less of an issue through homebrew assuming you pay attention to that scene(latest update was actually a huge breakthrough on that front with the YouTube app now being exploitable as hell), but it would be nice to maybe link save data to your Nintendo id so stuff like dlc, your saves, maybe even streetpass data, etc. can be accessed across multiple systems...of course that could be expensive, and would always require a internet connection, but i think a lot of people would be on board with that.

That's a fan workaround that just happened multiple years into the console's lifespan though, and is arguably sketchy (since not everyone is ok with using homebrew). That is NOT the same as Nintendo outright not implementing any kind of region lock from the beginning, which is what I was talking about.

 

The fact that fans made a workaround does not cover up for Nintendo.

 

yeah, a cloud system to store various data would be nice but it'd probably have to be reserved to something like a paid subscription service (like PS+) or else Nintendo probably wouldn't be able to keep that up (too much resources for a free service). Personally I lost a lot of StreetPass data since I can't merge StreetPass data between two 3DS's and also when I transferred some games from one 3DS to another via customer service, I couldn't transfer over the save data so I lost all of that, which I'm still kind of salty about, just because I don't like losing save data (and it was for Fire Emblem: Awakening no less :\).

 

So meh, yeah, in general Nintendo's systems just aren't user-friendly/flexible when it comes to certain odd situations. Like requiring New 3DS owners to buy a new adapter... if a parent is buying it for a kid and neither are well-versed in how that works, they could easily miss that and end up not being able to charge the 3DS until they make a separate trip to buy a charger... it's a relatively rare situation but it's that kind of stuff I'm talking about, I guess. Nintendo takes care of the needs of 80% of its consumers and whatnot and that's kinda fine as-is but it would be nice if they could eventually work on taking care of the other 20% even though it's difficult, provided they have nothing significantly better to do, lol

Fair. I pretty much agree to everything else you said as well.

lol yeah sorry if I came off a bit harsh at all, I mostly just didn't want Nintendo to get away from criticisms y'know, like I like'm a lot I'm obviously a huge fan but even so they can still do a lot of things better and it shouldn't be the fans job for that XP like how people need to use Smashladder.com to get quality Smash matches, since For Glory isn't good for a lot of people...
