@  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

That's right, what I think is an English version of the "Knights of Iris" artbook is coming out in English (and at what should be a much more reasonable price than importing it).

 

Amazon Link: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1616559381 

 

See https://twitter.com/...766977775333376for a tweet with other retailers (sorry I'm kinda lazy)

 

My suggestion is that if you're interested, pre-order it now. You don't have to pay for it until it comes out, so you have time, but at least that way you've reserved yours.

 

Personally as an FE fan/collector even though I'm not a big fan of Awakening I will still be picking this up. If it were an FE6-FE9 book I'd pick it up without hesitation, but for this... well, hey, the artist is still good. And it's Fire Emblem. And it's in English and I don't have the original, so why not? =P

 

Any of ya'll going to pick it up? :o

One of these days it will get to a point where I absolutely cannot do anything without an amazon account, and THEN I will finally get one...and a pay pal to go with it.

 

Wait...B&N? *checks* Hm...40 dollars... Ehhh. I'm kind of like you, Blazer. If it had been FE6-9, I would have jumped on it instantly. IMO those games had the prettiest art. Awakening's artist just...doesn't appeal to me in the way the former ones did. Both the in-game art and the OA.

 

It's nice that we're finally getting it, but I bet all those people who imported the Jap one are feeling veeeeeeery upset right now.

Haha, you really don't have one? I guess that's just a difference in lifestyles though. For me, I use Amazon quite a bit to order all sorts of things when I need it (games, books, tools, creams, shaving heads, other stuff, lol), so I even have Amazon Prime and FEEL like I use it enough for it to be worth it.

 

Yeah I gotcha. I still think the artist is good, but it lacks some of that charm/appeal the older ones had, for me.

 

and yeah, I got multiple people on my Twitter saying things that essentially boiled down to being upset about just buying it/spending a lot of money on it, haha. It's a shame partially because it took so long but eh, I mean, for something that isn't coming out until like... August, I think, they did give a fair notice to people. So hopefully at least some section of people will forgo the Japanese version now that there's an English version. For everyone else, I guess they either have to live with it/be happy they got it earlier than some people, or spend more money getting the English version or something, lol.

Well, to be honest, my mom handled all the online store accounts like ebay and amazon. She handled the paypal too. She passed away last year, taking all her accounts with her. I just haven't set up any accounts, and I'm a bit wary of setting up paypal so that it directly accesses my bank account. I heard it's safer to just open a new bank account just for paypal, but... Too much effort required for that.

 

Yeah I gotcha. I still think the artist is good, but it lacks some of that charm/appeal the older ones had, for me.

Definitely. It really said something when I was scrolling through the DLC characters for FEA and singled out Leif because he was drawn by the same artist that did Sacred Stones, lol.

 

When I actually look at what the book has, I guess that 40$ price tag isn't as bad as I first thought.

This will be a 320 page book, filled to the brim with artwork related to character design, weapon design, storyboards, event illustrations and the game’s complete script for all possible dialogue and scenes.

 

That's actually quite a decent amount of content. Still not enough to make me want to buy it, though--that's almost the price of an actual game.

ahh, I see... I'm very sorry to hear that. I personally just use one bank account for everything, but I can see why it could be troublesome, so I don't blame you.

 

ahahaha, yeah that does say something I think. but yeah it's not a terrible deal at all, assuming most of the art is quality and whatnot. I think I really only value it at around $20, but I work enough jobs that I'm willing to put out a bit extra for FE-related stuff, haha.

That's what I value most books at. To pay much more than that feels like I'm being cheated. lol

I already have the original Japanese release, but I guess I can pick this up too.

 

My only gripe is that an English release should have happened sooner, but eh,...

though like Lucia said:

it's actually gone on sale! it was $40 but for whatever reason pre-orders went to $24 on Amazon

 

I already have the original Japanese release, but I guess I can pick this up too.

 

My only gripe is that an English release should have happened sooner, but eh,...

 

ooh, way to support heh

 

yeah it sure did take a while, I have to wonder if they had wanted to do this for a while and it just didn't pan out, or if they just took super long to get an English version started and stuff, lol

. but hey, if you're not that interested, then that's that, haha

Considering this supposedly has the entire game's script for EVERY variation of EVERY cutscene, I am inclined to believe they just didn't feel like dealing with that aspect of it. Maybe.

 

Then again, the entire game's script is readily available in English. It's not like they would have to translate all the text in the book.

ohhh really? didn't know that. but hmm. I see. yeah, maybe it just took a ton of time to work with Nintendo and prepare it, and perhaps persuade them to do it in the first place (e.g. show evidence that there's a market for it and people will buy it and the like)

According to serenes, anyway:

You  make a point. Having to work with the dudes who wrote the script might be a problem. Unless they wanted to do it the fan way and manually play the game like a million times or so. lol (since I think the text in the final chapter, when you let Chrom defeat Grima, changes with every possible husband/wife choice.)
