@  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

So many years (3 years, wow it actually hasn't been that long) ago I made a topic about weapon forging in Fire Emblem. It's been a long time since then (not really), and a few games have come out (like 2 that even have forging). Thus, I felt like posting a similar topic (really not the same one at all) and seeing how things have changed. Here's how forging has looked over the years:

 

Spoiler

 

With all that out of the way, the discussion prompt: What game has your favorite forging system? What's your favorite weapon you've ever forged?

For me, Path of Radiance had the best system for one reason. In case it wasn't made very clear in the descriptions, that reason is COLORS. Due to that, I don't really have one weapon I've ever forged that stands out as my favorite. I would often make weapons specifically for units and then make them match the color. Like a red Throwing Axe I made for Kieran, or the golden Silver Axe (wait what) that made Titania destroy the endgame. There's a lot of great ways to forge and things that can be forged, so what are your favorites? 

 

 

also if someone could tell me how to put a name on a spoiler tag, I've been trying to figure it out for awhile but never wanted to ask. Thanks.

Why is PoR's your favorite when RD's is literally just better PoR's forging lol. My favorite is RD's because of the COLORand coins made forging a tad more exciting. COLORreally put life into your creations which I loved and allowed for you to see weapons in absurd COLORS. 

 

Shoutouts to SD's forging allowing you to create absurd broken weapons of amazingness. And shoutouts to Fates for having the worst forging ever.

To be honest it's because I have yet to play/beat RD. (I did play it, but it was a few chapters on Silence's copy of the game) so I didn't really know what the forging was like outside of what I saw Silence do. But, if it really is just PoR but better, sure, that's my favorite lol.

 

And shoutouts to Fates for having the worst forging ever.

 

I at least tried to be a little less direct by calling it convoluted.

I was going to comment that RD had colors too but someone beat me to it.

 

Colors is nice. Would be nice to have it again. I didn't play around much with PoR's forging system, though I do know that said system is what made me stop watching an LP. Let's just say, the LPer had dirty thoughts with that sword. >_>

Fates is by far the worst forging system(I mean at least they went all out and had the worst everything). RD is also my favorite btw. Most freedom.

I honestly never cared much for the forging in any FE game, as whether there are colors or not there's absurdly little customization in the end and ultimately I view anything that isn't indestructible as a disposable. I also just found it really silly how the colors applied to the blades rather than the hilts or handles...


I believe in judgment of humans through their judgment of fiction, for nothing else tells better of their disposition freed from apprehension.
