@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:45 PM) especially better imo if you want to update on a topic but like only occasionally (e.g. a project you're working on or a let's play of a game)
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:44 PM) it's hard for me to explain precisely why but forums just like work better for meaningful discussion over a longer period of time ig
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:44 PM) but that's def just not hte same ig, idk
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:44 PM) yeah, you can also kind of respond at your own pace on forums. Discord conversations are often like... it's awkward to respond to something that happened a while ago, especially if the server is active, but even just in general. since you sort of need to keep track of multiple conversations at once at times, and it's not like it has a good reply/quote system ala forums, closest thing really is to copy/paste or screenshot the text you're responding to and then type a response below
@  Elwood : (09 November 2019 - 11:29 AM) Adding on to what's been said, I just enjoy the order and structure of the forums. You can look through the threads and know exactly what people are talking about. Conversation get lost and buried on discord which is why I'm not a big fan of it.
@  kirant : (06 November 2019 - 05:31 AM) I enjoy that part of forums too. They become niche communities where you can have very specialized conversations as opposed to the cluttered mess in Discord.
@  Ezra : (31 October 2019 - 01:17 AM) Yeah, part of me wishes I could go back to the times forums were more prevalent. I really enjoyed how even several different forums based off the same franchise could feel so different. It's not like what we now is bad though, I just feel nostalgic for old times.
@  Fire Blazer : (30 October 2019 - 06:39 AM) also forums in general are just not as prevalent, there are so many other ways to interact these days, like Twitter, FB, Tumblr, etc., where you can just throw your thoughts into the void. I think that's the real issue and that the only people rly interested in forums these days are either super dedicated to whatever they're about, have a specific reason/need to (e.g. support forums), or grew up with them and are thus attached to the idea enough to continue to try and use them (this was kinda me for a while lol but things happen, I couldn't keep it up forever)
@  Fire Blazer : (30 October 2019 - 06:36 AM) I've posted on SF for various reasons ofc but in terms of like making friends and stuff it's p. much just been smaller groups/forums, yeah. mainly FES
@  Elwood : (27 October 2019 - 10:08 PM) Only reason I'm even on Serenes was because I had hacking questions. @Ezra yeah I figured it must be an age thing. I've been called an old man by many a child because I use Facebook.
@  kirant : (26 October 2019 - 09:39 PM) It's strange. I don't think I've ever posted on Serenes...period. I've always been a fan of smaller forums.
@  Ezra : (26 October 2019 - 05:49 AM) I think it's because a lot of newer FE players didn't frequent forums growing up. And those that do probably end up on Serenes.
@  Elwood : (25 October 2019 - 07:30 AM) I would love to revitalize this place I'm just not sure how that would be done. I mean with how main stream FE seems to have become I'm honestly surprised we don't have more members.
@  Fire Blazer : (21 October 2019 - 08:04 PM) tfw u not coming here results in not seeing a PM from last month T_T ok gonna try and check at least every couple weeks now even if there's nothing here, lol...
@  Fire Blazer : (21 October 2019 - 07:54 PM) I come here almost never because I've fallen out of habit and basically just accepted the forums are dead :( it's neat you come here every day tho
@  Elwood : (27 September 2019 - 05:52 AM) I still come here everyday because this is still my homepage in Firefox! XD
@  Ezra : (25 September 2019 - 03:07 PM) I also miss the days the forums I used were more active :(
@  Fire Blazer : (15 September 2019 - 05:39 AM) I do kinda miss the days these forums were active :(
@  Ezra : (29 August 2019 - 04:14 PM) *BOX!!!*
@  kirant : (19 August 2019 - 12:49 PM) Huh. Bothammer time.

Not new news, but I hadn't posted it yet, so yeah, here you go! It's nearing 2 million? Anyone else think we can maybe get it to 2 million by the time the next console comes out or something? I've still yet to buy a physical copy myself, so there's that, and perhaps FEif will motivate some people to catch up on the series... and Awakening is a pretty highly acclaimed title so it seems like people who are picking up 3DS's tend to suggest getting the game to others, so there's that (it's likely to still sell slowly even though its launch was a while ago). I think it'll be tough but it should be possible! We should have at least a couple years where 3DS games are still selling a bit!

I've heard some people have issues with playing older games because they can't get it unless they pay huge amounts for a used copy or have to resort to piracy. So I don't think FEif would motivate many people to play the other games in the series (especially with how different it is.) Looking back at Awakening myself after playing it, I kind of feel like it's not worth playing again once I have my hands on FE:IF, but it's also true that I am kind of blinded by the hype right now so who knows.


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

@Mercurius I think OP Pair Up warrants returning to awakening lol.

 

And look at all those casual ruining my FE party *shot*

 

It's pretty great that FE is actually selling now. I think breaking 2 million might be plausible since FE:IF will probably get more people into the series and thus they will return to Awakening if they like the game.

I'm thinking that's the only real hope, even with tail sales it'd be difficult to hit 2m without something pushing FE, I think: thankfully we have FEif (and to a lesser extent, SMTxFE, I suppose) keeping the topic of Fire Emblem active, haha

Shout out Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn. I was lucky enough to grab a copy a few months after its release.

I agree with Blazer here, its major hype period is over and unlike games like The Witcher or Mass Effect, the series doesn't have interconnection to the point where playing the other games to understand story is necessary, but playing the other games appeal to some people. It will sell more because new fans are appearing left and right because the marketing was so successful, it's plausible to occur, but I don't think it will happen from a market push. It's something that may or may not occur naturally.
