@  xcrash1998 : (21 September 2018 - 05:46 PM) I like games that actually reward you for reaching more difficult objectives.
A good example would be the golden ballon in Super Mario Oddisey it more like a trophy and less like an in game side note of what you did.
@  Fire Blazer : (17 September 2018 - 07:13 AM) but like yeah I get more trophies/achievements in games that I just happened to play more bcuz the game itself was fun or w/e and it's like oh ok i also will get these things just through doing the stuff i wanted to do anyway, that's cool i guess lol
@  Fire Blazer : (17 September 2018 - 07:08 AM) like they don't rly hurt but they aren't something of particular value, it's kinda like a fancy alert with a title that tells u u did a thing, it's not bad but im not rly one to go out of my way to obtain the validation of a video game through something that can usually just be done via spending enough time/effort on it

(getting to like the top X% of a competitive multiplayer game or smth would be a diff story, but in that case i wouldn't even want an achievement, i feel like just getting there should feel rewarding in itself, so... yeah, lol)
@  Fire Blazer : (17 September 2018 - 07:07 AM) yeah I'm not a trophy/achievement guy lol
@  acceptance : (13 September 2018 - 10:35 PM) That's just not incentive enough for me, man.
@  acceptance : (13 September 2018 - 10:34 PM) Plus with modern gaming a lot of the time the most you can hope for if you get all the collectibles is a trophy/achievement. Which I suppose is valuable to some people, but it's not gonna add anything to the game whatsoever.
@  Fire Blazer : (12 September 2018 - 05:58 PM) like yeah sidequests with an actual crafted scenario to them, post-game dungeons that aren't TOO much grinding/rehashed content, etc. are cool
@  Fire Blazer : (12 September 2018 - 05:57 PM) yeah I only like completionist stuff if it's like meaningful content/not super grindy but usually at some point it becomes kind of annoying so meh
@  acceptance : (11 September 2018 - 01:01 AM) Gotta love unforgivingly difficult super bosses. (Looking at you, Lingering Will.)
@  acceptance : (11 September 2018 - 01:00 AM) I cannot do the whole collectible thing. It always feel so tedious. Sidequests and EX dungeons are always fun though.
@  xcrash1998 : (09 September 2018 - 06:56 AM) So thats perfect for me
@  xcrash1998 : (09 September 2018 - 06:55 AM) I am rather obsessed with completing on 100% unless it is completely unreasonable to do so
@  Fire Blazer : (03 September 2018 - 04:51 AM) if they ever make a sequel/spiritual successor or the like at the very least it should have my attention, haha
@  Fire Blazer : (03 September 2018 - 04:50 AM) so yeah, great, great game overall, I even bought the expansion and played the heck out of that too because it was so much fun. Think I ended up almost 100%ing it (basically fully explored the map IIRC, not sure I did everything but at the very least I should have gotten pretty close).

and I'm not really a completionist either, so again... just speaks volumes about how fun the game was IMO.
@  Fire Blazer : (03 September 2018 - 04:48 AM) Awesome gameplay, sweet enemies, an overall interesting premise and plot along with some solid writing, even the soundtrack was decent for a Western game, lol... but of course, the VISUALS. whew. the game looks soooo good. couldn't help but take pictures even though I don't usually consider myself that kinda guy, lol. the environments and hyper-realistic look are just so visually appealing I was often kinda mesmerized, similar to how I felt with Xenoblade X.
@  Fire Blazer : (03 September 2018 - 04:46 AM) I'm surprised to have finally found some other people who have played and liked that game though. I was excited for Horizon: Zero Dawn and got it at launch and ended up basically binging it, IIRC even putting P5 on hold for a bit, because it was just so much fun.
@  Fire Blazer : (03 September 2018 - 04:46 AM) ouch @ potential april fools lol
@  Rujio : (02 September 2018 - 09:34 AM) Still an excellent game. One of the more interesting stories I've come across in a game, especially an open-world one, and some pretty solid characters and worldbuilding. The gameplay is fun and works really, really well in the setting, too.
@  Rujio : (02 September 2018 - 09:31 AM) Although that article is from April 1st and my google searches are not revealing any other evidence of a PC release...
@  Rujio : (02 September 2018 - 09:29 AM) Ah yes! I just played that game this past summer with my friends (who have a PS4) and it really was great! I'm really glad it's coming to PC so I can have it myself, and also because I've got some PS-less friends who would really enjoy it.

The science of playing two games at once, whoo. Recording fire emblem and messing around in Animal Crossing at the same time. Helps reduce the drag I feel because I've been through the first 8 chapters so many dang times.

Sorry I didn't start on time. Storm caused internet issues most of the night. I plan to start around 9:30 PM to 10:00 PM Tuesday and play as much as possible.

What time zone are you in?

 

Also, to anyone who might be interested in doing Eirika's route, but not the first 8 chapters, I can supply a VBA battery file or savegame that has been beaten in both Eirika's and Ephraim's route (thus super trainees are available) and which has a file ready for picking the route.

So far as I know, no. Voffie is the one to start, but I dunno what time zone they are in. I've started recording my videos but that's because I want to get it done asap so I can get to other games. I think Zac might have started on his as well, but his is also recorded.

ohh yeah def. gj Voffie. for FE4, are you using the old one or the new one that's still in beta? if you don't know what I'm talking about check this http://serenesforest...ic=63676&page=1I just asked to see if it's safe enough to use for a stream w/o worries, seems legit overall tho, almost makes me want to play it

 

(almost)

Okay, good to know. Some people can read Japanese so I didn't know. XD

 

I have up to chapter 9 done, but my internet has decided to run at the speed of dial-up and it's an hour+ commitment to upload each video. T_T Which sucks. I'd like to see that FE1 stream.

ahahaha fair but I think that'd be a bit unenjoyable for the viewers too even if they could XP

 

and niiiice that's fast progress haha no need to rush it too much you have time lol, just keep the vids private or w/e as you're probz doin' and we'll spam them when the time comes

 

as for the FE1 stream... Voffie has the opening act I hope he delivers, NO PRESSURE VOFFIE XD

@blazer oh cool a new translation that claims to have everything translated(i'm hoping that means supports too? they didn't really mention it) i may have to check that out since the fonts looked nice and clean. i kinda failed on the prologue with my second at recording anyway. i was too busy trying to fix mic problems to pay attention to the fact that both lex and finn got super low one turn and sent them both in to fight DiMaggio XD

Can't tell if sarcastic or not...

 

The problem is that I don't know how fast people are going to go through their games. I don't want it to come to my turn and me not be done recording.

 

The videos are private, as is the playlist. When it comes to time, you can just link the playlist and it'll be like a marathon. lol
