@  acceptance : (12 July 2018 - 05:57 PM) As far as we know, anyway.
@  Fire Blazer : (09 July 2018 - 08:29 PM) ooo, Felover's alive, lol
@  xcrash1998 : (09 July 2018 - 11:33 AM) He will be remembered, our brother in arms.
@  acceptance : (07 July 2018 - 03:35 PM) BUM- BUM- BUUUUUM
@  acceptance : (07 July 2018 - 03:34 PM) And in the end; xcrash1998 never did find out what was up with Felover3. In fact, no one ever heard from either of them again.
@  xcrash1998 : (03 July 2018 - 12:41 PM) Hey man, whats up
@  Felover3 : (03 July 2018 - 01:56 AM) Been a while
@  acceptance : (02 July 2018 - 11:12 PM) In retrospect it's pretty obvious, what with the Johnny Bosch and sword revving, but according to my doctor when I was 12 i have ADD.
@  acceptance : (02 July 2018 - 10:39 PM) Holy shit it just clicked in my head that the guy in the DMC5 trailer is Nero. Neato!
@  kirant : (27 June 2018 - 12:19 PM) Granted, that makes it sound like I have no interest in Fates (and I really don't, outside of a couple characters)...so I guess my hopes are above "fairly negligible" right now.
@  kirant : (27 June 2018 - 12:19 PM) I think I've got higher hopes going in than for Fates. Fates, as soon as the trailer hit, made it pretty clear it was going to eschew an interesting "both sides have points" story for a fairly clear cut "good guys" story and "villain" narrative.
@  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.
@  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)

Hey everyone I'm starting my new project.An alternate history timeline for the console wars called well In the Shadow of Giants. The basic premise is it takes place in alternate world where 4th gen console war(NEC v. Nintendo V. Sega) is prolonged into the modern day or at least the 7 gen.

Some ideas:

Hardware Developer team ups something doesn't happen irl but will happen with two of the mayor players.

A earlier JRPG boom with a game displacing Final Fantasy 7.

No sonic but another mascot for Sega.

huh. so like is this just a story/fanfic kinda thing? sounds interesting but I don't really get it. is it inspired off something like the Neptunia series where they have consoles take the shape of characters? hahahaha.

 

and man I can't really see SEGA having a mascot htat isn't Sonic. It'd be fun if in an alternate timeline Falcom and ATLUS became some super big-name RPG creators instead of the more niche ones they are now (though ATLUS does make some slightly higher budget/better games)

Its a story written in almost a documentary style.For the Neptunia idea, I honestly am not doing it.The idea is to show the history of a world that ended out differently from ours.

 

The Falcom and Atlus idea sounds pretty cool but they aren't the cause even though do play a big part.Originally I wanted it to be the killer app for Nec's 5th gen console but I replaced them another player.

 

If everything goes well the first two pages(1984-1989) will be posted by Sunday.
