@  Mercurius : (14 May 2017 - 08:09 PM) I DIDN'T LIKE IT BEFORE IT WAS COOL TO
@  Mercurius : (14 May 2017 - 08:09 PM)

Things like animations being super boring aside, the maps are just way too small

I have had no hope for those puny maps from the very first moment we saw they existed
@  Fire Blazer : (14 May 2017 - 07:48 PM) pfffft. saying one silly thing doesn't make you dumb, and I never thought of you as dumb before. I mean I say silly things all the time. =P though ironically I also think I'm kinda dumb but those are unrelated... I think
@  Idiot : (14 May 2017 - 02:06 PM) "psssst right back at you"
@  Idiot : (14 May 2017 - 02:05 PM) lol
@  Whitewolf8 : (14 May 2017 - 06:06 AM) oh.
...welp. you already know i'm dumb.
@  Fire Blazer : (14 May 2017 - 04:42 AM) Even without the weapon triangle or durability, Echoes has many other elements common to FE games, and due to its larger scale and different design approach (since it's not a free-to-play mobile game), feels much more in line with the rest of the series than Heroes.

So I just noticed it was available on the eshop, and my first words were "yup". Didn't even think about it, just hit purchase. I've only played through the prologue so far, but it's super fun imo. I'm not totally certain I like the weakness system as much as regular smt/persona's version, but the battles are still really good. They kept the Japanese voice acting for the Western release, so that's a thing. Not sure whether to say it's positive or not, but it's definitely a thing. Solid soundtrack, graphically speaking the game is good. Characters are really nice looking. Chrom especially looks really cool.

Also they translated sheeda as caeda, but the actor still said sheeda...

At least for me, the weakness system becomes even more awesome later. It works notably different from the other ones and I just find it super rewarding and exciting and that it connects with other parts of the game better than say, the press turn system. (just my opinion though, we'll see what you think of it~)

surprised you didn't hear about it being dub only, but yeah. they did it for various reasons. save money, game is niche, singing stuff means it's super hard to find people to sing all the songs/be fitting, don't want inconsistent VAs, etc.

 

I really REALLY like the art, and how colorful the game is. It's no AAA with the graphics or models, but the animations are fairly fluid IMO and overall I enjoyed it plenty. There are a lot of awesome songs in the soundtrack IMO, some of which you don't get to hear much, so tell me what you think as it goes on! I liked it though!

 

On Sheeda, tbf I think Caeda is pronounced similarly to Sheeda anyway, but yeah, it's still weird. bet whoever decided on that weird spelling never thought TMS#FE would exist and have Sheeda in it, lol... (still "Sheeda" to my regardless of FE11 and the like XP)

i can see the potential in the weakness system already, but i've gotten so used to the press turn thing in smt/persona games that it'll take a minute to adjust and remember that i don't get extra attacks. i really think i'm going to enjoy it. i'm seeing loads of potential just from the prologue. just hoping it lives up to half of what i'm seeing in my head XD.

So I typed up a pretty lengthy post, but then my browser crashed and I lost it all fuuuuuuck. Quick summary:

 

Battle system is super fun, progression is nice to keep it fresh.

Characters are fun, tropey but not too tropey like some FE chars and JRPGs can be

Dungeons are fun (barring Illusory 106), not randomly generated makes for some fun puzzles. Last two dungeons are probably the best since they don't use the darker colors like the dungeons before it lol. 

The performances look great and the songs are super nice to listen too. This game made me a fan of Minase Inori.

Colors are great, too much grim dark these days. 

Load times can be long, and the framerate can get annoying in encounters with many large enemies (I have disc version). PS fuck chapter 5 for having an encounter where the game shits itself.

rip disc version users, I'll have to suffer through it myself soon enough

 

agree on most of hte other parts though Kiria is my fave though, but Tsubasa is close to your age and Kiria is close to mine so it's only natural *shot*
