@  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

So I just noticed it was available on the eshop, and my first words were "yup". Didn't even think about it, just hit purchase. I've only played through the prologue so far, but it's super fun imo. I'm not totally certain I like the weakness system as much as regular smt/persona's version, but the battles are still really good. They kept the Japanese voice acting for the Western release, so that's a thing. Not sure whether to say it's positive or not, but it's definitely a thing. Solid soundtrack, graphically speaking the game is good. Characters are really nice looking. Chrom especially looks really cool.

Also they translated sheeda as caeda, but the actor still said sheeda...

At least for me, the weakness system becomes even more awesome later. It works notably different from the other ones and I just find it super rewarding and exciting and that it connects with other parts of the game better than say, the press turn system. (just my opinion though, we'll see what you think of it~)

surprised you didn't hear about it being dub only, but yeah. they did it for various reasons. save money, game is niche, singing stuff means it's super hard to find people to sing all the songs/be fitting, don't want inconsistent VAs, etc.

 

I really REALLY like the art, and how colorful the game is. It's no AAA with the graphics or models, but the animations are fairly fluid IMO and overall I enjoyed it plenty. There are a lot of awesome songs in the soundtrack IMO, some of which you don't get to hear much, so tell me what you think as it goes on! I liked it though!

 

On Sheeda, tbf I think Caeda is pronounced similarly to Sheeda anyway, but yeah, it's still weird. bet whoever decided on that weird spelling never thought TMS#FE would exist and have Sheeda in it, lol... (still "Sheeda" to my regardless of FE11 and the like XP)

i can see the potential in the weakness system already, but i've gotten so used to the press turn thing in smt/persona games that it'll take a minute to adjust and remember that i don't get extra attacks. i really think i'm going to enjoy it. i'm seeing loads of potential just from the prologue. just hoping it lives up to half of what i'm seeing in my head XD.

So I typed up a pretty lengthy post, but then my browser crashed and I lost it all fuuuuuuck. Quick summary:

 

Battle system is super fun, progression is nice to keep it fresh.

Characters are fun, tropey but not too tropey like some FE chars and JRPGs can be

Dungeons are fun (barring Illusory 106), not randomly generated makes for some fun puzzles. Last two dungeons are probably the best since they don't use the darker colors like the dungeons before it lol. 

The performances look great and the songs are super nice to listen too. This game made me a fan of Minase Inori.

Colors are great, too much grim dark these days. 

Load times can be long, and the framerate can get annoying in encounters with many large enemies (I have disc version). PS fuck chapter 5 for having an encounter where the game shits itself.

rip disc version users, I'll have to suffer through it myself soon enough

 

agree on most of hte other parts though Kiria is my fave though, but Tsubasa is close to your age and Kiria is close to mine so it's only natural *shot*
