@  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

Aw...it's so cute...I just want to take it home with m--

 

Wait.  Are we talking about the spambot or the new characters in FE Heroes?

Say what you want about the chibis...but the Black Knight and Nephenee's cut in art is pretty good.

oh, the art is great

 

I am quite pleased with Nephenee's and TBK's art

 

but "cute" still wouldn't really be my word choice to describe them, XP

Say that to Nephenee's face again.  I dare you.

 

Totally not bias because I love the fact that Nephenee's art works so well with the Summoner Support background.

well, I'm generally just not to uh, compliment art in that way in the first place

 

but if I had to, I'd say she's closer to hot than cute?

 

somehow 'cute' has more of a childish or demeaning connotation to me, even though it doesn't have to

 

rather than cute, i'd say it's super well-drawn and brings out Nephenee's charm

 

which is probably not helping poor Seraph, who can't seem to get his hands on Nephenee AFAIK... (he got like 4 Oscar's though >>; poor dude)

I think we're hitting a discussion on the connotative meaning of different words for "nice" art:

 - Cute can certainly have diminutive connotations.  

 - Beautiful often has connotations of "class" and elegance. 

 - Hot would imply something along the lines of a sexual attraction. 

 

That said, I typically default to cute in this scenario as I think you'd associate many of Nephenee's endearing traits with a more cute emotion.  Though the real sentiment is that her art is lovely and it meshes amazingly well with the background of the Summoner Support.

 

I feel bad for Seraph.  If memory serves, he was the one with the Nephenee avatar on the site?  I mean, this is probably the best shot he'll get at Nephenee (as her stats and capabilities aren't good enough to warrant a Hero Fest focus on her) and it's a 50/50 shot at the Focus % (at the best of times...that is, if you're purely pulling on blue orbs). 

 

I've heard the stochastic method for finding the 90th percentile for landing a Nephenee was spitting out about 226 Orbs.  I would have to assume it's much worse as it didn't seem like the calculation considered the fact that Oscar/Nephenee were both splitting the blue focus (90% chance of landing an Elincia just opening red summons was about 180-190)...so I could easily see that heading up to the 400-450 Orb requirement region to land a Nephenee 90% of the time.  Could be wrong though as I don't really delve into the mechanics of the game's summoning engine all that much.

 

What I'm trying to say is that it's damn hard to pull a Nephenee and it doesn't seem like the odds are getting better anytime soon. That is, unless they decide to kick her down to 4 stars.

 

Silver lining is that if you whale for that, it at least doing so prevents any other addictions from draining your wallet.

@bolded statement, should have just said so :P

 

but yeah, nitpicks

 

I'm just not one to say something is cute

 

and yes, he has had a Nephenee avatar for a long long while now, I think

 

I usually don't pull the orb colors I want, nevermind the actual characters, so >>;

 

400 orbs for a 90% chance, ugh, I'm guessing Seraph has probably already spent as many as he reasonably could, lol

yeah seems like it, and you probably have a point with the Hero Fest thing. the real problem is just that she shares blue orbs with Oscar, cutting that % in half is a real bummer

this seems like a weird kinda silver lining... either way the wallet is drained, no? ><; lol
