  2. The forums are going to be down this weekend (tentatively Saturday the 19th) for maintenance as we upgrade the software to XenForo 2. Particularly of note is that blogs are going to be removed for the time being, but we are getting a lot of new features with the upgrade.

    For more details, see this thread.

    UPDATE: Due to technical issues the upgrade has been delayed a few days. We don't currently have a new projected date, but we'll keep you posted if we do find out more details.

        That's certainly interesting, I knew it had to at least be before the time of the movies (and some of the novels too). If I had known about these games earlier, I probably would've still kept my Xbox then.

        I find it funny it went from a Christmas convo, to FE, to SW now lol.

        I am definitely eager to know if both games will run on your computer.

        Don't forget LoL and GOG.com. And I guess I'm the one who started those topics, lol. Well, I guess if we want to keep this up, we'll need to keep bringing up new topics to the discussion. We could also stop here and make a new chain to each of our profiles when we've played the games in the series we've promised each other to play and to share our thoughts (FE for me; KOTOR for you). Up to you.

        Those topics too lol, I hate it when things keep slipping from my mind -.- We could do that though, I think I'm starting to run out of topic ideas without it ending up being a repeat from previous topics.

      Hey, you were making a point of scoring as many FE spirits as possible in Smash Ultimate right? You might wanna boot up the game and head to the Spirit Board, since there's a Fire Emblem Fest going on atm which should give you quite a few.

        I agree, my favorite is definitely Tamers though with Frontier being a close second, especially due to the unique human turned Digimon way they went about it.

      Update: I just finished Sacred Stones last night! I think I like this better than Awakening and will definitely play again sometime, perhaps sooner than later. I'll definitely have to do Ephraim's route when I do... and try not to lose more than half of my units by the end next time. :sweatdrop:

        Yeah some names in the series are pretty confusing and hard to pronounce, special mention also goes to Deirdre from FE4. But at least you still had Seth and Duessel, they are pretty great units, Tethys the dancer you mentioned is also ok if for her fast HP and Luck growth.

        Yeah there are some FE fans (as well as other fans of similar games/genres) that recommend not to restart cause you're supposed to feel the impact of losing them, which is fine and all for some but I like certain characters so much anyway that I just have to restart to keep them all lol.

        For Ephraim's route I do recommend keeping it on Easy or Normal (whichever you have it on), since some maps are indeed slightly harder than Eirika's maps. For the Phantom Ship chapter, when you get to it, just make sure to have your best defensive units ahead of you then send in magic units to help with healing/striking afar. And Pegasus Knights help with Mogalls, so have them ready too!

        You're telling me. But it's kind of comforting to know that even FE veterans like yourself have a hard time pronouncing certain names. :) Funny thing I neglected to mention is, one of the characters happens to share my own first name. And, yeah, Seth and Deussel are tanks, so they're very useful to rely on when in a tight spot. (And looking through the roster on the wiki page, I'm still not quite sure if I remember exactly who all survived in the end. :/ )

        I will fully admit that I played the game on the Easy difficulty - take that as you will. But it looks like I might want to leave it at that setting, if I'm going to be doing some harder maps when I do Ephraim's route. I was thinking I could still make it a bit more challenging by making sure every character is both recruited and survives till the end next time. It'll be more rewarding in the end when I read each of the characters' fates in the character epilogues. I've played some other RPGs that have that kind of ending feature, and it's neat that Fire Emblem does, too. Don't know when that started in the series, or if FE did it first, but it's a nice touch, regardless. And thanks for the tips! I'll be sure to refer back to this advice when I replay SS! :)

        Oh, and good avatar to be using during our FE discussion here, btw, though I may not know who the warriors are or in which FE game they're from. :P

        I've had discussions with other FE fans and sometimes we'll talk about how hard certain names can be to pronounce and spell lol, makes me wonder what the Japanese fans think of some of the names.

        Yeah if you chose that setting for the game it is best to leave it on there then, Ephraim's route is a bit harder but easy mode should be able to take some heat off of it (because man when I played on hard mode the first time for it I got punished). So I think Phantom Ship shouldn't be too bad, but it's still good to be cautious anyway.

        Thanks! They are from left to right Leif, Seliph, and Ares. They all appear in the fourth game, GotHW; and Leif is the main protagonist in the fifth game Thracia 776, Seliph makes an appearance in this one as well but isn't playable and Ares doesn't appear at all.

        I thought I was already following you so I had to do a double take at first lol. But yeah Star Wars and Star Trek I really like, and I just love video game music in general regardless if I've played them or not; so most vg music posted I'll most likely enjoy with only rare exceptions.

        I hope you enjoy SS, and Blazing Sword whenever you get around to it! Another FE game that is a good starting point is Fates for the 3DS, mainly Birthright since it's also like Awakening, though YMMV on the game(s) due to a lot of controversy surrounding them but eh I thought they were alright.

        Well, how considerate of you to consider me worthy of following. ^_^ And, yeah, I also share your love for video game OSTs, as I'm sure you're already aware. I know there are games I've wanted to play simply because I liked the music.

        Hmm... Fates has been the one FE title(s) that I've been more reluctant to try, due to said controversies. It sounds to me like Fates just took everything many didn't like about Awakening and put more emphasis on it. I also didn't like the idea of having to play three different versions of a game to get a complete story. I honestly wasn't really that interested in anything post-Awakening until I found out that Echoes: SoV was actually a remake of the second FE title made. Now I definitely want to play that one sometime, too. But Fates... maybe if you really think any or all versions of that one are good enough to play I'd consider it, if I can still get any them for a decent price.

        Fates was made off the success that Awakening got, and it shows. Marriage, children, grinding, DLC's, etc. they just threw it all in because it'll make money, and it did, but the way a lot of it was implemented was not that great. Like the child units weren't that well received because the way they were put in didn't make sense unlike in GotHW and Awakening, and the fact that while you can marry any character opposite gender of Corrin it cuts back on having good supports. And of course making three games just to get the actual full story and true ending was a bad idea, and at least put all three paths on one cart IS, come on.

        There is just too many things that they tried to achieve and missed the mark with in regards to Fates. That being said the gameplay, for Conquest at least, was pretty good and there are characters I do like from them so I just went in with low standards for it. Overall they were alright for gameplay, terrible for story (the fact they needed three games to get a full story and still have plot holes is all bad), and alright for some characters; if you want to try one of them then Birthright for the grind or Conquest for a traditional experience gameplay wise, ignore Revelations though.

        (And yes I do recommend Echoes for the modern Gaiden experience, I've played both and they're really fun. But maps do get repetitive and I recommend that all units be promoted ASAP)

        No problem. Final Fantasy VI just happens to (most likely) be my favorite entry in the FF series. In fact, I've been planning to work around my backlog to replay it again at some point this year.

        And thanks! Glad to see another Conway fan. :)
