@  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

[11:19:40 PM] ballin1337: I am making a list of 50 things Awakening is missing
[11:19:51 PM] ballin1337: try to be specific, not too broad, because we want to list 50 things. that's a lot more than it seems

[11:20:04 PM] ballin1337: by "missing" I basically mean, anything that could be different and maybe better

[11:28:20 PM] ballin1337: https://docs.google....dit?usp=sharingBOOM
[11:28:21 PM] ballin1337: go
[11:28:26 PM] ballin1337: don't write over other people's stuff please.
[11:28:34 PM] ballin1337: also try to be creative though writing the obvious ones is also helpful.

 

NOTE: DO NOT SHARE THIS GOOGLE DOC WITH PEOPLE OUTSIDE OF THESE FORUMS. I want to minimize the chance of random people messing with things. So, we'll just keep it to us. Hope you contribute. Thanks!

I dun wanna do spreadsheets. :(

 

Sounds like a fun idea, besides that. Editing google docs tends to be really annoying for me, though, so I'll pass.

I edited my responses into the comments section of some

 

In response to affinities:

"While they might be superfluous they don't do any harm either and aren't constantly crashing into your face unnecessarily (e.g. like superfluous dialog). This list isn't to say they have to return, it's just listing things that have value to people that are missing in Awakening."

 

I think you're misunderstanding the point of this list in general. You made a similar point about support conversations in mid-battle but I'm not saying they're better or anything, just that it's something notably different that some people might value. That's why I let "Dismounted" be on the list even though I'm not really a fan of dismounting units myself: because some people might like that and miss its presence.

 

That being said, your points are generally valid for supporting the opinion that it doesn't matter/doesn't need to be in Awakening/whatever, so I appreciate you giving the counter-thoughts regardless

 

------

 

About late-game characters and such:

 

"I figured someone would say that but those characters don't join late enough for them to fill in that role IMO and due to Awakening's lack of linearity, they're missing the same feeling/vibes caused by having characters join late in a story: you can go ahead and do a bunch of skirmishes/DLC maps/paralogues/whatever in the mean time so they basically feel like normal characters just with less supports and a later joining time. - Blazer"

 

Thus I don't agree that Awakening has it. Too many differences for it to count for me, doesn't really feel similar
