@  acceptance : (15 June 2018 - 07:05 PM) Keep the spirit of Sly Cooper alive through Ghost of whatever-the-shit.
@  acceptance : (15 June 2018 - 06:55 PM) Also the fact that people are excited for a Sucker Punch game in 2018.
@  acceptance : (15 June 2018 - 06:41 PM) The fact that I can actually preorder Kingdom Hearts 3 makes my soul dance.
@  Mig64 : (15 June 2018 - 02:36 AM) I'm not really sure how I feel about it, it felt a bit too different, could either work very well or not work at all, no middle ground.
@  acceptance : (13 June 2018 - 12:44 AM) I'll be honest, I'm completely out of touch with Fire Emblem. I couldn't so much as name a single character past Awakening.
@  Fire Blazer : (12 June 2018 - 10:18 PM) not having super high hopes for it
@  Fire Blazer : (12 June 2018 - 10:18 PM) the names and art are interesting
@  Fire Blazer : (12 June 2018 - 10:18 PM) new FE looks ok
@  Rujio : (12 June 2018 - 09:07 PM) A post on SF refers to "brigade based tiles" and "squad based controls"
@  Mig64 : (12 June 2018 - 07:59 PM) Those generic units following the character give me hope that we can have actual large scale battles instead of turning everything into a glorified skirmish.
@  Mig64 : (12 June 2018 - 07:56 PM) Seems like a very fitting name for the character, then.
@  Rujio : (12 June 2018 - 07:27 PM) oh hey doing more research on that - the "gard" part is in fact cognate with "guard," so Edelgard approximately means Nobility Protector.
@  Rujio : (12 June 2018 - 07:26 PM) (Also, Edelgard is an interesting name - -gard is a common ending for old Germanic feminine given names [think Hildegard] and Edel is German for noble)
@  Rujio : (12 June 2018 - 07:24 PM) The thing I thought might be interesting for gameplay is that it looked like maybe there were "units" that were actually ~a dozen generics. You can see a large group of archers and a large group of mages attack simultaneously.
@  Rujio : (12 June 2018 - 07:24 PM) I appreciate that Edelgard is wearing pants and not exposing her cleavage. These are useful things in battle.
@  Rujio : (12 June 2018 - 07:23 PM) There's not much there.
@  Mig64 : (12 June 2018 - 07:18 PM) Hey, guys, did you watch the Fire Emblem: Three Houses trailer? Thoughts?
@  acceptance : (12 June 2018 - 12:19 AM) Abyss 3DS will never be a thing that makes sense to me lol.
@  Fire Blazer : (11 June 2018 - 08:33 PM) but maybe they'll just remake it from the ground-up one day, who knows
@  Fire Blazer : (11 June 2018 - 08:33 PM) I already played it for PS2 and 3DS, so I think I'd have passed on that

All right, if this is going to be a thing, it's time to set up OBS to capture my VBA screen so I can upload. (OBS uses .flv which is MUCH less space-consuming than .avi files.)

 

Wait, is savestate abuse allowed or no? I'm going to assume no.

I have to hand it to Blazer for bothering with Lyn's mode. I cannot stand it. It's the #1 reason why I don't play FE7.

 

EDIT: Unless he's doing the tutorial-less version. In which case... There is that one chapter that's unwinnable in the that version.

In Hector Mode, there is a chapter 19xx, which is acquired by having Nils get to level 7 in Lyn mode, and killing Kishuna in 19x.

I use Nils...and refuse to use Ninian. Because I'm weird like that, yo.

 

Okay, I lied. I use her enough to get her supports up for Eliwood, and then I'm done.

Thanks for all the posts! I've updated the first post! Sorry for taking so long, I finally got back from my trip just recently and I've been trying to relax and play catch up, so here I am~

We can start in a couple of days, though we're still looking for someone to do FE5.


No way this will be finished by the end of September starting from mid august


thanks for the optimism! lol

It's ok if it doesn't quite finish on time, it is what it is.

I don't really wanna participate but I'll watch lol.


hey, watching helps

All right, if this is going to be a thing, it's time to set up OBS to capture my VBA screen so I can upload. (OBS uses .flv which is MUCH less space-consuming than .avi files.)

Wait, is savestate abuse allowed or no? I'm going to assume no.


yup, do it

and yup, savestate abuse is allowed.

Savestate abuse should definitely be allowed(if it's not i may not make it through 4. Arena abuse was my saving grace XD)


mhmhm

lolwut FE4 is the easiest without savestates. You get to save every turn lol.


how's that

I have to hand it to Blazer for bothering with Lyn's mode. I cannot stand it. It's the #1 reason why I don't play FE7.

EDIT: Unless he's doing the tutorial-less version. In which case... There is that one chapter that's unwinnable in the that version.


ahaha, maybe. I didn't think of that, but I could live through either, maybe. I could always hack away the tutorial and not play hard mode, too. I don't know what chapter is 'unwinnable' though.

ooh,do the Nils secret chapter!


heh, maybe~

I apparently had too many blocks of quoted text so here is part 2 of my post lol
 

^ Uh what? What's that? XD


you don't know?? *gasp*

lol jk
 

yeah but arenas though. i won't be able to use arden without that =P

i'm definitely not using arden though. so useless.


LOL shots fired
 

Is...that a thing? I only know of one EX chapter...


git gud

part of why I like FE7 is all the split chapters and gaiden chapters, adds depth and arguably replay value to it IMO



oh yeah I forgot you had to kill kishuna

I never bothered with it though because I never used nils and ninian.


they're good units in their own way IMO but I kinda feel ya since they're so defenseless and unique and such lol

 

AS FOR THE GAME PLAN FOR THE MARATHON. I'D LIKE TO START ON THE 15TH OF AUGUST. THEN JUST KEEP BEATING GAMES AS WE CAN UNTIL HOWEVER LONG IT TAKES. THE FASTER THE BETTER THOUGH. IF YOU'RE GOING TO RECORD A GAME AND NOT LIVE STREAM IT, PLEASE DO IT SOONER THAN EARLIER AND HAVE THE VIDEOS READY TO UPLOAD AND STUFF.

 

PLEASE STREAM THE GAMES ON YOUR OWN CHANNEL AND THEN WE'LL HOST IT ON MY CHANNEL TOO (assuming I can get it to work). MAKE SURE TO SHARE YOUR STREAM LINK AND POST HERE AS YOU STREAM. I'LL SHARE STUFF ON TWITTER AND IN OTHER PLACES TOO ON OCCASION.

 

It's just a suggestion, but doing it during the day is probably better. And you should export the Twitch streams to YouTube if you can so we have them archived. Call it like "Fire Emblem Marathon - FE# with ______", obviously putting in the # of the game and your name.

 

Savestate abuse is allowed. Cheating is looked down upon/keep it to a minimum. As long as it's minor/pretty close to the OG experience though I don't really care. We may have some overlap, i.e. have two people playing games at once, to make things go faster, but we'll generally try to keep things simple and we want to avoid having two people stream at once.

 

Finally, take note of your completion time and any other cool info after you beat it. We'll make a final post with that kind of stuff. Info like what characters you used or the MVP of your team for instance. :)

 

Any questions feel free to ask. Thanks!!

I'm probably going to be recording since my internet can barely handle playing smash while other people are around, so do you want me to have all the videos like uploaded to YouTube as private until we're ready for 4,or just have them sitting on my hard drive for now?

Edit: also I better get started. I'm notoriously bad at finishing things on time =p

 

Edit again: ok i recorded the first video, but i'm getting some horrible static. gotta figure out what the problem with it is before i do anything else.

I seem to recall that the boss of the chapter was a shaman. I believe the goal was "Defeat the boss," but after he was defeated, nothing happened. Game acted like he hadn't been killed. I had to load up the original, vanilla game and beat him to continue.

 

I'D LIKE TO START ON THE 15TH OF AUGUST.

*checks date* That's tomorrow. crapcrapcrapcrap. I've been procrastinating and this is what I get LOL! I have the first two chapters down, at least. Good news is that starting tomorrow, I'll have the house alone for a couple of days. Perfect chance for recording stuff.
