@  xcrash1998 : (30 November 2019 - 11:07 PM) New fictional holiday "Index Day"
@  Fire Blazer : (28 November 2019 - 08:52 PM) yeah just guest bots and stuff I think :( we really were active once upon a time though...
@  kirant : (26 November 2019 - 03:48 PM) No invasion. I imagine a lot of guest bots visiting for indexing purposes.
@  xcrash1998 : (26 November 2019 - 02:15 PM) How is most people online at 959 for the 8th of October of this year? Is that right? Did I miss something or was there somekind of spambot invasion?
@  xcrash1998 : (26 November 2019 - 02:06 PM) I know what you mean, it gets awkard to post something unrelated to the current conversation, and even if somebody picks up on it, it would just become a huge mess in the c hatbox if a multitude of groups talk about different topics.
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:45 PM) especially better imo if you want to update on a topic but like only occasionally (e.g. a project you're working on or a let's play of a game)
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:44 PM) it's hard for me to explain precisely why but forums just like work better for meaningful discussion over a longer period of time ig
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:44 PM) but that's def just not hte same ig, idk
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:44 PM) yeah, you can also kind of respond at your own pace on forums. Discord conversations are often like... it's awkward to respond to something that happened a while ago, especially if the server is active, but even just in general. since you sort of need to keep track of multiple conversations at once at times, and it's not like it has a good reply/quote system ala forums, closest thing really is to copy/paste or screenshot the text you're responding to and then type a response below
@  Elwood : (09 November 2019 - 11:29 AM) Adding on to what's been said, I just enjoy the order and structure of the forums. You can look through the threads and know exactly what people are talking about. Conversation get lost and buried on discord which is why I'm not a big fan of it.
@  kirant : (06 November 2019 - 05:31 AM) I enjoy that part of forums too. They become niche communities where you can have very specialized conversations as opposed to the cluttered mess in Discord.
@  Ezra : (31 October 2019 - 01:17 AM) Yeah, part of me wishes I could go back to the times forums were more prevalent. I really enjoyed how even several different forums based off the same franchise could feel so different. It's not like what we now is bad though, I just feel nostalgic for old times.
@  Fire Blazer : (30 October 2019 - 06:39 AM) also forums in general are just not as prevalent, there are so many other ways to interact these days, like Twitter, FB, Tumblr, etc., where you can just throw your thoughts into the void. I think that's the real issue and that the only people rly interested in forums these days are either super dedicated to whatever they're about, have a specific reason/need to (e.g. support forums), or grew up with them and are thus attached to the idea enough to continue to try and use them (this was kinda me for a while lol but things happen, I couldn't keep it up forever)
@  Fire Blazer : (30 October 2019 - 06:36 AM) I've posted on SF for various reasons ofc but in terms of like making friends and stuff it's p. much just been smaller groups/forums, yeah. mainly FES
@  Elwood : (27 October 2019 - 10:08 PM) Only reason I'm even on Serenes was because I had hacking questions. @Ezra yeah I figured it must be an age thing. I've been called an old man by many a child because I use Facebook.
@  kirant : (26 October 2019 - 09:39 PM) It's strange. I don't think I've ever posted on Serenes...period. I've always been a fan of smaller forums.
@  Ezra : (26 October 2019 - 05:49 AM) I think it's because a lot of newer FE players didn't frequent forums growing up. And those that do probably end up on Serenes.
@  Elwood : (25 October 2019 - 07:30 AM) I would love to revitalize this place I'm just not sure how that would be done. I mean with how main stream FE seems to have become I'm honestly surprised we don't have more members.
@  Fire Blazer : (21 October 2019 - 08:04 PM) tfw u not coming here results in not seeing a PM from last month T_T ok gonna try and check at least every couple weeks now even if there's nothing here, lol...
@  Fire Blazer : (21 October 2019 - 07:54 PM) I come here almost never because I've fallen out of habit and basically just accepted the forums are dead :( it's neat you come here every day tho

Here's the pages for the most recent Famitsu issue: http://i.imgur.com/uYZhLi9.jpg

 

Quick summary:

-Parallel Proofs change your class but your level doesn't reset

-Personal Skills confirmed (such as "Nohr Hater" and "Unlucky Soul")

-The seven new characters are Cyrus (Both), Elfie (Nohr), Harold (Nohr), Hinata (Hoshido), Oboro (Hoshido), Linca (Hoshido), and Tsukuyomi (Hoshido).

More info in here: http://serenesforest...classes-skills/

 

I really like the fact they added in Personal Skills, and I also like the changes done to reclassing (though Second Seals are still unconfirmed).

that's awesome, thanks for sharing

 

not going to spoil myself on all the character details, but

 

I like Parallel Proofs, are second seals still a thing?

 

Also personal skills are great, I'm quite a fan of fixed things (classes, skills) for a few reasons, so I like it. I'm not a huge fan of "any character can be almost any class and have almost any skills", it feels like it takes away from the characters a bit for me.

 

Anyhow, I'm slowly becoming more and more hyped for this.

Second Seals still unconfirmed but I will be surprised if they're not in the Hoshido route. And yeah I agree on the personal skills thing, gives them a bit more diversity and personality.

well hmm, they did say different weapons and such, perhaps different items are a thing too. I suppose still having second seals wouldn't be that odd...

Personal skills sound really cool, kinda reminds me of Valkyria Chronicles. I hope they add some cool ones though, in Valkyria you started to see the same ones over and over.

Hah, I thought of valkyria chronicles too when I read personal skills.to be fair though VC had a lot more characters than an FE game that isn't shadow dragon ever will. Making unique skills for 100+ characters would be a bit difficult. In an FE game it's much more feasible.

The fact that one of the examples is "Nohr Hater" immediately brought VC to mind for me, too. Tank Hater, Lancer Hater, Trooper Hater... It would be interesting if Fire Emblem brought in some negative skills, too, so that individuals that are otherwise very similar can have more specific roles.

oh my gosh how is that even possible

 

personal skills isn't really a revolutionary concept, I'm thinking the skills won't necessarily totally be "unique" but it'll just be a fixed skill a character has that can't be removed, and probably a lot of them won't be too great (like some might just be small stat adjustments or such, idk)

Though I could do without the boob plate.

Seconded.  I might just join the side without the awkward looking armour.

 

...Who am I kidding?  This is IS.  We know they will make both sides look equally ridiculous. 

 

Edit - Then I realized I was quoting a two day old post.

I feel the need to point out that as far as costume insanity goes the armor is much worse

 

you can make a decent argument for Rinka being so unprotected because she specifically chose to be for mobility reasons or whatever (even if a few more layers wouldn't hurt) and in general she seems to be designed to give off the look of someone that's more used to a primitive lifestyle, which the design overall accomplishes

 

now, onto armor

 

heavy, metal, surprisingly flexible, expensive, "I ain't dying today" armor

 

It's actually not particularly stupid to decrease the strain it would have on your torso to give particularly large breasts some room to not be squished forever (disregarding the flexibility issues and whatnot and how if she has the muscles to deal with wearing half of that all day I don't know how the hell all that fat is staying there)

 

it is COMPLETELY STUPID to make it simulate bare cleavage (this thing is supposed to COVER YOU)

 

there is NO AESTHETIC THAT IT CONTRIBUTES TO other than making the wearer, and the designer, seem pornographic

 

I don't know who invented this idea but they need to die if they haven't already. It's even dumber than the muscle-armors ancient Greeks liked.

As far as Rinka being impractical, keep in mind that certain cultures have charged into battle naked, largely for the psychological effect. Super-buff Rinka swinging a hunk of sharp metal around could hypothetically have a similar effect. Admittedly it's pretty anachronistic to have someone doing that given the implied technology level of FE, but it's better than a lot of what we've seen. Personally I find it easier to suspend my disbelief for Rinka than for random exposed thighs, for instance.

I am glad that Rinka is dressed like that because those muscles NEED to be shown off. Powerful and beautiful and I could just flood a community with the amount of drool flowing out.

Well considering Rinka is like a tribal chieftain, her attire makes more sense than what some of the people in an actual army are wearing.

So the Japanese Nintendo Direct had a bit on Fire Emblem if (as kind of expected). I'm super tired now so I like, want to try to sleep, but:

 

My Twitter ramblings: https://twitter.com/fireemblembuzz

 

The Japanese site (got a "renewal" of sorts): http://t.co/5WylWtiO85

 

Nintendo Direct bit:

 

https://www.youtube....gnYVD_-Qt=5m50s

 

Info on "My Castle" (a pretty in-depth new feature):

 

 

Somebody please update with screenshots and maybe the inevitable Serenes Forest post once it comes out... I need... to sleep...

Nobody told me FE:IF was a Rune Factory crossover...

 

Don't let the subdued response fool you, the hype just cannot be put in words. Also Joker's voice is wonderful and I swear to god there better be dual audio for this game.

 

I'm disappointed in being unable to visit Tsubaki in the bath without getting chased out. I know now for sure that I'm playing female.

I generally like the My Castle thing, except for that Fucking face rubbing. What are we, Love Plus? This is just... just so otaku pandering stupid. And to a lesser extent the bath house. I would've been fine with it if you would just meet same sex character's, but I when I saw the walking in on opposite sex character's and getting chased out I felt like I was in a stereotypical anime. Ugh. Though all in all it looks pretty cool, except for Luna being a Severa look a like. Also Marth and Ike look amazing.

I echo Cero's claims with this... It's a call feature but the extent it was taken to is just... Too "anime" for me.
