  1. To be honest, I'm getting to the point where (gameplay wise), as long as the maps are good and aren't shit-fucked (echoesssssssss) I'd be really happy. Seriously, that one boss in Echoes.. was really bad. haha. As long as there isn't any tomfoolery like that, I'll eat this game up. I can't do anything about the shoddy 3D so why resist it anymore. I've been waiting too long for a Switch FE to not as least give it a chance.
  2. I think its just meant to be a unifying color, showing that all these characters are related in some way. Someone theorized that their outfits were actually their (military) school uniforms, based off the information of Byleth being (at least) Edelgard's teacher. If that's not the case, though, I agree; I think their designs should've been linked with an accent color instead of main one.

    Well, I know where Kozaki went. Seems like he's off the Fire Emblem ship entirely. I saw somebody once wishing their farewells to Kozaki, but I wasn't able to find an official statement from him. We already knew he wasn't working on FE3H, though, but just in case anybody was wondering and would like to keep up with him.

    Yeahhhh. But I feel like as Fire Emblem becomes more popular in the west, Nintendo may start considering the western audience's wants as well. A Japanese POV might not be the only POV considered in the future.

    That would be fun, though I'd be sad to be separated so soon from characters I've prematurely gotten attached to. ):
  6. Fire Emblem Three Houses

    At least for me, its something I can shrug my shoulders at and move on from. I recognize that nonchalance isn't everyone's cup of tea, though. Looks like it just isn't high on my personal priority list. p:
  7. Fire Emblem Three Houses

    They handled it so poorly in Fates, I'm not sure I'd get excited if they did something similar. Do you just mean like a singular game with the same starting and (similar) ending points with a variable middle? Because I'd prefer something like that instead of something Fates-style. I found semi-enjoyment in how the army swaps were handled in SoV, though it did leave me feeling disconnected with the cast. Maybe a blend of those styles would be nice.

    I find it very strange that there are people who feel like there needs to be a justification for the existence of PoC and LGBT people in any given fantasy setting. I think I understand where everybody's coming from, but I'm not sure. So please, correct me if I've misunderstood. I just can't imagine getting so fussed up this particular part of worldbuilding. As others have stated, you can do anything in fantasy. Does it really ruin your suspension of disbelief so much to see a PoC/LGBT character in a place they "shouldn't" be? I think there are way more important parts of worldbuilding to be focused on. The socio-economic situation of a country, their religious system if any, how their government works, the class divide, etc. Hell, even their cuisine and arts feel infinitely more 1) important and 2) interesting than ""justifying"" the existence of "minorities". The fantasy genre should adapt to match the times. Maybe we should stop basing everything off of Celtic, Norse, Greek and medieval European culture. If not for their "lack" of diversity, but also for the fact that they're so fucking overdone I didn't even bother reading any of the new Lords' full names because its just boring stuff I've heard before. Yawn. The fact that I may be able to let my eyes glaze over and still be able to fill in the blanks in 3H's worldbuilding makes me feel very bored. Fantasy writers need new material. The new God of War (which I know is a pre-existing franchise) was really good, but I didn't pay fuck-all attention to any of the worldbuilding because I knew it already since its all been used before. Maybe that's good for something more character-driven, I suppose. But in the contexts of an actual war, which 3H is setting itself up to be, I think I'd like to know more about the state of the countries, with those countries being fresh materials. There's 0 reason to pay attention to something I've already seen so much of, so why not draw inspiration from something different for once?

    I wish I could answer you, but I'm a bi dude who hangs out with fellow gays. I've only got 1 girl friend and she's not even into men, and I haven't spent that much time in the Fates fandom since it released. In fact, I don't think I even have any friends who also like Fire Emblem. I came to my conclusion via the popularity poll that was held way back when. Quote taken from the wiki: I will say the Niles/M!Corrin is very popular and, as expected, a sizable portion of those shippers are female. So you could deduce that M!Corrin himself has some female fans. I can't speak to the foot fetish thing, etiher.
  10. Fire Emblem Three Houses

    Seconded. Like I said, its important for games / franchises to continually reinvent themselves. Any of ya'll remember Breath of the Wild? One of the best Zelda games ever? Its one of the best because they said, "you know what, fuck our traditions, they have no reason to actually exist" and did something completely new. Fire Emblem has, and should, continue to do new things as well. Why the hell do you guys want to play the same game over and over again? Especially with how expensive Switch games are. Its nice to have some familiarity, and I'm not saying FE should go full BotW, but some changes need to be made to keep people interested. Unisex classes, diversified casts, multiple same-sex supports, battle arts, troops, etc. The only thing that needs to stay in a Fire Emblem game is strategy. That's it.
  11. Fire Emblem Three Houses

    This is a fantasy anime game. Gender-exclusive classes are boring and Fire Emblem should (continue to) reinvent itself. Sticking to old hat will get really boring really fast, while newness gets people interested. "What's going to happen this time?" is a good, exciting thought for fans to have, and if we could just always predict it 100%, then there's not much enjoyment to be had. Also, its fun and all to try and apply logic to things in fantasy, but don't take it too far, because in the end, there are no limitations in fantasy. That's why its called fantasy.

    The way people in any fandom treat their female characters is always concerning. The internet gives platform and a voice to huge waifu-fetishists. Ever notice how M!Corrin is called a pussy and a boring character, but F!Corrin is hailed as a waifu? They're the same exact character, but when its a girl who behaves in Corrin's way, its "attractive". Its really depressing. I'm someone who gets really passionate about certain characters, so I can understand falling in love with one, but the way some people treat their "waifs" is abhorrent. I agree that Edelgard is attractive but I'm confused, too, over how people can waif her so quickly. We don't know shit about her and can only make assumptions, and having so many people immediately put her on a pedestal is concerning. Though I suppose this might sound hypocritical as I was instantly smitten with Niles all the way back when he got leaked.. but I honestly really lucked out with my early investment. Niles easily could've been a character I actually hated. Unfortunately, waifus sell. There's a whole subgenre in anime dedicated specifically to making waifus for people to go nuts over. An argument could be made that that's all modern anime is, but I digress.
  13. Damaging Skills.

    I've been playing it since release day. Even pre-registered, iirc. I think that if things were brought over from Heroes into a core game, they'd need a lot of tweaking any way. FE:Heroes works on a nearly completely different system than core games, to start with. Not to mention just how small map sizes are, which greatly affects the mechanics of skills and whatnot. Point is, whatever may get carried over from Heroes, it'll probably be so reworked it'd be near unrecognizable.
  14. Other Bisexual/Gay characters?

    I second everything everyone else said. Seriously, at least Felicia, Jakob, Azura, and Silas should've been bi. I especially think that the "all paths" characters should've been bi. I agree with Hana/Sakura and they were honestly up there with one of the first S supports I did when playing through the same sex mod. And tbh, with Anna locked behind a pay wall, she should've been bi as well. For self-indulgent purposes, I'd really love it if the "obvious" pairs (Selkie/Velour, Leo/Takumi, Camilla/Hinoka, etc) had also been bi. I just think they're fun ships and S-supports as a whole are self-indulgent pandering. Honestly, I think everybody had the potential to be LGBT, but it might be because I'm viewing them as an LGBT person myself.

    The home page is really good for that. Along with other FE news, they're really timely with updating us on new news when we get it. The forums are really just for discussing the newly released information, not necessarily showcasing it. If you wanted, you could even just visit 3H's specific page every now and then.
