@  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

Thank you for everything.

Just wanted to say, thank you for everything, everyone.

 

Just as a country is nothing without its people, a community is nothing without its members.

 

It's thanks to everyone who participated that I have as many fond memories as I do, and I wish all the good-natured members I've met over the many, many years this site has been alive lives full of good fortune and happiness.

 

I'm sure I will remember and cherish both the fun times and the people I made lasting friendships with for the rest of my life.

 

While the golden days of these forums may have come to an end, please do feel free to let me know at any time how you are doing and what's new in your lives. The connection I built with these forums, no matter how thinned by the passing of time, is something I truly value, and having an old friend say hello would be an easy way to bring joy to my day. :)

 

Best wishes,

 

"Fire Blazer"

So are you going to close the forums to new members, in order to prevent more spambots?

lol, I didn't think of that. I just felt like making this post.

 

I'll look into some measure for the spambots.

 

EDIT: I don't feel like manually validating accounts (I don't have that kind of time), so I've disabled new registrations.

Spambots are currently being shot in the face by me when I have spare time.  Current rate of intervention needed is about once a week or less.

 

We should be capable of allowing new registrations as long as some of the "Staff" team is still around.

 

Also, screw you Blazer.  Now I have to join Twitter :mellow:

I mean... it's your call, I guess. I'd like to help, but I just have too much going on for me to get into the habit of such a thing... (or I'd be making actual posts, tbh)

 

I think you have admin access to change it? Maybe? If not, let me know I can do it

 

And... no you don't? XP I just comment on random stuff on Twitter, I can't even recommend following myself. That place is just kind of a void to throw thoughts in, if you ask me. Unless you're like a news site or some company trying to market a service or product or something like that with a specific purpose, haha. Or a super memer or the like.

 

I mostly just use it for news, myself, since it's useful as a news feed/aggregate of sorts. Then I occasionally comment on stuff to waste time or whatever, usually when I'm bored (like while walking around or waiting in line) or procrastinating getting up from bed in the morning, I think. :P

I can't be bothered to do that much. lol. And it's too short for my thoughts. Now, using it to post images from my 3DS or Nintendo Switch? Sure! lol

 

I thought this topic was about closing the forums oops.

Less of a pain than doing it by taking a photo, closing the game, removing my sd card, putting it in the comp, getting the picture, uploading somewhere, and then sharing it. lol

149 characters a post isn't enough and having me use something like Twitlonger turns it into a blog thing.  And I already have one of those.

oh, totez. I mean, I just kind of end up spamming when I want to say more. only raaaarely use Twitlonger. but too lazy to start my own blog/probably even less people would read it than my Twitter, so lol

 

besides, the 140 character limit at least makes me TRY to avoid spamming and ranting. give me a full post every time and I'm even less likely to hold back/restrain myself, lol

 

btw, where's your blog

In my signature.  I avoid posting anything politics or the like because it's far too easy to get people angry on the internet for not agreeing with them. 

 

Heck, I typically won't even post something even remotely controversial like "I didn't like Gurren Lagann...if I could stay awake through it".

Yes, it was when the forum IV went down and you had to restart. The date was November 26th 2008. I check in from time to time. Sad to see a place slowly die. But it is what it is.

Man, what a throwback. It's nice someone remembers though, heh.

 

And yeah, I know, I feel like most of the old members aren't even that invested into FE anymore, haha. I mean, some of us still play, but even if we do, it's not really like the old days, and we don't have the same free time to discuss and make jokes and sprite edits and all that, heh. Like you said though, it is what it is. Thanks for stopping by.
