@  Mage Girl : (17 February 2020 - 02:33 AM) I can safely say I'm so far the only person to post to this shoutbox in 2020...
@  Fire Blazer : (24 December 2019 - 03:17 AM) naw, it's when the bots make collaborated efforts to crawl places, lol
@  kirant : (23 December 2019 - 05:20 AM) What do we do on Index Day? Give each other bots?
@  Fire Blazer : (16 December 2019 - 01:39 AM) LOL
@  xcrash1998 : (30 November 2019 - 11:07 PM) New fictional holiday "Index Day"
@  Fire Blazer : (28 November 2019 - 08:52 PM) yeah just guest bots and stuff I think :( we really were active once upon a time though...
@  kirant : (26 November 2019 - 03:48 PM) No invasion. I imagine a lot of guest bots visiting for indexing purposes.
@  xcrash1998 : (26 November 2019 - 02:15 PM) How is most people online at 959 for the 8th of October of this year? Is that right? Did I miss something or was there somekind of spambot invasion?
@  xcrash1998 : (26 November 2019 - 02:06 PM) I know what you mean, it gets awkard to post something unrelated to the current conversation, and even if somebody picks up on it, it would just become a huge mess in the c hatbox if a multitude of groups talk about different topics.
@  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.

I'm down for this, but in a way, having more buying options is better for most people, I think. Like, if you just package everything together and it's super expensive...

 

I guess for now it's once again in the air, who knows how it'll turn out in the end...

maybe it'll just be another option like some people had assumed would happen when the multiple games thing was announced in the first place. I can't see them going back on the whole two separate games idea entirely since that was kind of a thing at E3.

mhm, you have a point. I dunno, it's just kind of weird at this point, since they haven't been super transparent about what they're doing. clearly there are two different games being made and the like, but the pre-ordering situation and whether there will be a special edition or not is still kinda up in the air... I guess we just can't do much except wait for the release date to get closer so they can give us more info >_<

I hope there is a special edition. Would make it so that only the DLC path will be tied to one of my 3DS's.

that's actually a good point that I didn't think o-

 

...

 

waaaaait a second, since when do you have multiple 3DS's anyway?! ...actually, you may have mentioned this but my memory is bad. Awakening 3DS + New 3DS? idk

 

I only got the Japanese version digital so I'd like the SE for that reason. I mean, it might be a mediocre game IMO, but I've still got enough loyalty to the series to want to have the physical goodies. I'm just going to, you know, think two or five times over before I actually expect anything awesome, or get it.

Yup, me and my brother switch off on which DS we have during the school year, and since we both play FE it would be nice to have two paths not be locked to one of them.

that's kind of odd but yeah I wish Nintendo would like cater to rare situations/minorities more by making their things more... flexible and stuff, I dunno, like obviously it's not easy but in general people who share systems or have multiple ones or want to import games have issues so yeah... idk

Importing becomes less of an issue through homebrew assuming you pay attention to that scene(latest update was actually a huge breakthrough on that front with the YouTube app now being exploitable as hell), but it would be nice to maybe link save data to your Nintendo id so stuff like dlc, your saves, maybe even streetpass data, etc. can be accessed across multiple systems...of course that could be expensive, and would always require a internet connection, but i think a lot of people would be on board with that.

That's a fan workaround that just happened multiple years into the console's lifespan though, and is arguably sketchy (since not everyone is ok with using homebrew). That is NOT the same as Nintendo outright not implementing any kind of region lock from the beginning, which is what I was talking about.

 

The fact that fans made a workaround does not cover up for Nintendo.

 

yeah, a cloud system to store various data would be nice but it'd probably have to be reserved to something like a paid subscription service (like PS+) or else Nintendo probably wouldn't be able to keep that up (too much resources for a free service). Personally I lost a lot of StreetPass data since I can't merge StreetPass data between two 3DS's and also when I transferred some games from one 3DS to another via customer service, I couldn't transfer over the save data so I lost all of that, which I'm still kind of salty about, just because I don't like losing save data (and it was for Fire Emblem: Awakening no less :\).

 

So meh, yeah, in general Nintendo's systems just aren't user-friendly/flexible when it comes to certain odd situations. Like requiring New 3DS owners to buy a new adapter... if a parent is buying it for a kid and neither are well-versed in how that works, they could easily miss that and end up not being able to charge the 3DS until they make a separate trip to buy a charger... it's a relatively rare situation but it's that kind of stuff I'm talking about, I guess. Nintendo takes care of the needs of 80% of its consumers and whatnot and that's kinda fine as-is but it would be nice if they could eventually work on taking care of the other 20% even though it's difficult, provided they have nothing significantly better to do, lol

Fair. I pretty much agree to everything else you said as well.

lol yeah sorry if I came off a bit harsh at all, I mostly just didn't want Nintendo to get away from criticisms y'know, like I like'm a lot I'm obviously a huge fan but even so they can still do a lot of things better and it shouldn't be the fans job for that XP like how people need to use Smashladder.com to get quality Smash matches, since For Glory isn't good for a lot of people...
