@  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

if anyone doesn't feel like reading it nintendo is releasing a small NES clone which is preloaded with 30 games(and a pretty strong lineup at that). there are a few drawbacks, you can't open the cartridge slot, so no playing real cartridges, it won't be able to connect to the internet and download new games e-shop style, and it doesn't come with a power source. it comes with a usb power cable, but you have to supply the source.

 

i'm personally very excited.

Apparently the controllers are like 10 bucks and can be used with other video game consoles. Or so I heard.

I think it can only be used with like the Wii U VC games and stuff, but in general it's pretty rad.

 

I'm almost definitely going to grab this--I'm not big on retro games or anything but it's a solid deal (better than buying them on VC) and a good collector's item and just seems like fun in general. I'll hopefully end up trying some classics I missed out on since I never had an NES (and thus have only played such games on my computer or Nintendo consoles or the like)

It does have a solid line-up of games. Quite the deal, honestly. I'm not much of a fan of the NES era though, so I'll pass.

i mean it works out to less than $2 a game, so it's one of the best deals as far as games go. you couldn't match those prices at a yard sale XD

 

now give us an SNES version nintendo. you know we wanted that instead

I feel this, but I do want to give it a chance and have some piece of it, since it was the start of so much and is kind of... idk, revered by people in some ways. I guess you could say it's out of respect for the console that I'm interested. I don't think I'll get this at launch but I respect the idea and would probably like to have it at some point, maybe if it's $40 I'd be more inclined to get it XP (we'll see if Nintendo will be willing to discount it any time soon though, I wouldn't exactly count on it...)

I have to admit, most of the old games I like were on SNES, so yes, I agree with that statement. :P

How much is it currently? Or is it not out yet?
