@  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

Hey everyone I'm starting my new project.An alternate history timeline for the console wars called well In the Shadow of Giants. The basic premise is it takes place in alternate world where 4th gen console war(NEC v. Nintendo V. Sega) is prolonged into the modern day or at least the 7 gen.

Some ideas:

Hardware Developer team ups something doesn't happen irl but will happen with two of the mayor players.

A earlier JRPG boom with a game displacing Final Fantasy 7.

No sonic but another mascot for Sega.

huh. so like is this just a story/fanfic kinda thing? sounds interesting but I don't really get it. is it inspired off something like the Neptunia series where they have consoles take the shape of characters? hahahaha.

 

and man I can't really see SEGA having a mascot htat isn't Sonic. It'd be fun if in an alternate timeline Falcom and ATLUS became some super big-name RPG creators instead of the more niche ones they are now (though ATLUS does make some slightly higher budget/better games)

Its a story written in almost a documentary style.For the Neptunia idea, I honestly am not doing it.The idea is to show the history of a world that ended out differently from ours.

 

The Falcom and Atlus idea sounds pretty cool but they aren't the cause even though do play a big part.Originally I wanted it to be the killer app for Nec's 5th gen console but I replaced them another player.

 

If everything goes well the first two pages(1984-1989) will be posted by Sunday.
