@  Idiot : (25 May 2018 - 06:05 AM) See I've never even played Vesperia on account of it's 360 exclusivity in America. But from screenshots and such I've seen, it's super pretty.
@  Elwood : (25 May 2018 - 05:56 AM) I really really didn't like Vesperia's combat system but it's still one of my favorite games. That game's visuals, characters and story are phenomenal.
@  Idiot : (25 May 2018 - 05:33 AM) I think something similar to Vesperia's art sytle would be great. That game is just super pleasant to look at.
@  Fire Blazer : (25 May 2018 - 01:41 AM) and yeah, it's about time they do a new engine, I'm assuming that's why it's been more than 1 year since the last Tales of game (and why it feels so long), lol. hopefully it's good. I'd kinda like for them to go back to colorful games and maybe either get a good art style going assuming they can't just make it outright look good (I'm not a fan of going for more realistic graphics only for the textures to be like, low-res...)
@  Fire Blazer : (25 May 2018 - 01:40 AM) been hearing Berseria is a better game, even though what I saw of it didn't really impress me. I do still plan to play it eventually though.

and idr about the opening but Zestiria had a solid song. just kinda catchy lol
@  Idiot : (25 May 2018 - 12:46 AM) Speaking of which, I hear the next one will use a whole new engine. Maybe they'll like; animate the lips, too.
@  Idiot : (24 May 2018 - 10:58 PM) Tales** also. Oopsie poopsies.
@  Idiot : (24 May 2018 - 10:58 PM) Berseria is a better game though, I quite liked it.
@  Idiot : (24 May 2018 - 10:57 PM) I've come to realize that Takes of Zestiria has a super rad opening song, and Berseria's was a steaming pile of doo doo.
@  Fire Blazer : (24 May 2018 - 01:55 AM) lolol

@Rujio yeah, I remember hearing something like that too. It makes enough sense, remaking a game is a bit less work than coming up with an entirely new one, haha.
@  Rujio : (22 May 2018 - 04:15 AM) Apparently FE2 was remade because IS was looking ahead to the Switch, but couldn't start developing for it yet, so they did the simplest/shortest project they could.
@  Idiot : (22 May 2018 - 02:56 AM) Yikes. If that was me acting smart, I think I may be dumber than anyone thought.
@  Fire Blazer : (21 May 2018 - 07:16 PM) @Kirant yeah, in a way it is, but also FE1/3 were kinda already remade already, so in that sense, FE2 makes sense (being the oldest game to not be remade, lol)
@  Fire Blazer : (21 May 2018 - 07:16 PM) tfw Idiot tries to sound smart XP
@  Fire Blazer : (21 May 2018 - 07:16 PM) lol
@  Idiot : (20 May 2018 - 11:20 PM) So,the answer is the coin itself.
@  Idiot : (20 May 2018 - 11:19 PM) Oh yeah if you do that, the coin will go up... And then it will go down, thanks to gravity. Genius.
@  xcrash1998 : (20 May 2018 - 02:26 PM) Time for a coin toss
@  Idiot : (20 May 2018 - 01:32 AM) I'm conflicted in deciding which question to answer.
@  xcrash1998 : (19 May 2018 - 01:58 PM) What's up, anything down?

Hello!

 

I've known about this forum for a very long time but I never frequented it and I never made an account until now.

 

My story with Fire Emblem started in 2010 when I gave Shadow Dragon a try. I thought it was ok but it didn't keep my interest for long.

 

It wasn't until early 2014 when I gave Blazing Sword a try that I really got into the series but I have yet to actually finish Blazing Sword since I started playing a bunch of games around that time and eventually got a huge backlog as a result. I have however finished Sacred Stones, Path of Radiance, Radiant Dawn and Awakening. Radiant Dawn is my favorite installment. I also have a copy of Conquest that I bought on a whim two months ago but I haven't really been playing it lately.

 

I don't think I'll be that active on this forum but I will probably check it out sometimes.

 

I actually forgot that this site existed until a certain someone told me about it last year. You know who you are.

All I've got to say is "Phi!".  The Zero Escape fanboy in me demands that I keep gushing how happy I am that someone else loves that game.

I'm currently playing Persona 3 Portable and Persona 4 (PS2 Version) both of which I went back to recently after having them on hold for forever. I might play Blazing Sword again after I'm done with those two but that will take ages.

 

Yeah, it was pretty random. This site came to mind yesterday, so I made an account because why not.

 

A Serenes Forest member by the name of Euklyd made a group Smash chat on Skype in 2014. That's where I met you. We really only talked once or twice and played a few matches at first and didn't start talking to each other much until late 2015/early 2016, if I recall correctly.

Yeah, I like Zero Escape. Zero Time Dilemma was...ok at best, but 999 and Virtue's Last Reward are prettty good! I played all three of them last year.

Zero Time Dilemma was exhausting at times for sure.  I'm just glad it exists at all given that I've been on this ride since the start and there was a 4 year gap where we were told that there was no funding for a sequel to Virtue's Last Reward.

 

I'll take all the good that came out of the game and throw away the fact that the game kind of ended poorly...it's the sequel I gave up hope on ever seeing.  Whether or not it was good at points or has any replay value is pretty irrelevant for me as I finally got to see it through.

ahhh your memory is scary, I thought it might have been that but I really didn't want to delve into the details, especially when my memory was fuzzy and not scarily detailed like yours, lol

 

I'm still kind of curious why we started talking though, oh well

I like that attitude/I feel and respect that haha, like a recent example would be, I gave up home on ever seeing a decent Fire Emblem game ever again, so even though Echoes is "weird" (different) and certainly has various flaws and weakpoints, I didn't really care that much and don't feel like criticizing it because it's decent and made me happy to play FE again, so that would have been kind of a crappy, ungrateful attitude to have IMO when the series could have just kept being trash in my mind and never had a good (imo) FE game again, lol

 

(that being said I 99% expect the new Switch FE to be bad since it's almost certainly not a remake and thus has more potential for terribleness IMO, lol)

I'm kind of glad that I didn't play Virtue's Last Reward until last year because that ending would have annoyed me if I saw it at a time when there was no sequel in sight.
 
The cinematic style and panning camera they went with made sitting through Zero Time Dilemma pretty boring at times. The character animations aren't that great due to the visibly low budget which leads to the characters not moving much, so I wonder why they went with this when they could have gone visual novel like the first two games. I'm guessing they wanted to appeal to the American fans since Zero Escape is liked more in America than in Japan.
 
I don't remember all the things I had a problem with in the story because it has been a long time. Two things I recall not liking are Junpei's and Akane's characterization. Junpei's

Spoiler

 

As for Akane. I disliked her flanderization and

Spoiler
The game's ending was unsatisfying and disappointing. I can see myself replaying 999 and Virtue's Last Reward but not Zero Time Dilemma.

My memory isn't really as good as you think. Yours must be very bad.

hey, I readily admit my memory isn't that great, but I'm still offended by that, it's not that bad

 

and it's definitely a little odd to remember random stuff like that in detail

 

I mean idk, I meet so many people, I can't remember where or how I've met all of them, lolol
