  1. Jokes and Memes about Heroes

    My favorite part is when the Special goes off.
  2. Jokes and Memes about Heroes

    If this was a real thing, I would legit put this game back on my phone.
  3. How to Handle Character Flaws?

    I think it largely depends on the the characters they interact with too. The main problem with Celica is how she trusts Jedah, who, right in front of her, cackles about bringing in a world of chaos and such. The guy's manipulations aren't exactly subtle. So as a result, Celica looks like an idiot. Then there's that reunion scene where she flies off the handle, and how she's motivated to save Alm to the point that's seems to be the final factor in her decisions, which makes it seem like she cares more about him than doing her duty. So much for her being selfless. And all that stands out more compared to Alm's Gary Stuness. With Eirika, her trusting the Demon King makes more sense as he's passing himself off as a Lyon who managed to briefly take control of his body. Here he's pretending to be a good friend of hers, begging her to help save himself from the DK's control. Because if she doesn't, Eirika may very well end up having to kill him to defeat the DK. It's one thing when a loved one might be killed by your enemies. It's another when you might end up being the one to kill them. In short, the character's decisions have to work in context, not to mention having decent writing in the rest of the game as well. Let's admit, none us of liked how Celica ended-up a damsel in distress for Alm to save. What's the point of her being a main character if she just ends up like that?
  4. Fire emblem and "modern" anime trends

    He tends to write stuff for the mystery genre, generally of the detective kind. There's some other stuff, but nothing that indicates he has any experience writing for stuff like FE. Here's his wikipedia page. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shin_Kibayashi
  5. New Legendary Hero: Lyn, Lady of the Wind

    I was expecting a Forseti user or something. I mean, that's like the most well-known wind related weapon in the series, except maybe Excalibur.
  6. Class names that don't make sense?

    Manservant sounds overly cruel though to a modern audience.
  7. Opinions on Camilla

    Honestly, IS could have easily focus on both her sexyness and damaged past by having her act as a black widow of sorts. She could seduce, like full "let's have sex" seduce, those planning to overthrow her father into giving away information about such rebellions, and then kill them when she's done or something. You could have Corrin or one of her other siblings express concern about this behavior, and delve into how damaged she is in having to kill other family members to survive, that she's willing to do anything to protect what's left of her family. But nope, yandere onee-san.
  8. Is Medeus really that bad a guy?

    I thought that was due to the whole low birthrate thing. Like wasn't Tiki the last manakete to be born?
  9. This Story (FE 4 SPOILERS)

    Another thing to think about, is what kind of budget did Awakening have. I mean, the series was in danger of ending around the time it came out. That makes me think they would not have that big of a budget to work with, since who would invest heavily into what was a dying series at the time?
  10. Funny examples of Gameplay Story Segregation?

    Yeah, by all means, the Taguels are forever screwed. It takes more than two members of a species to revive it. Noah's Ark is a load of bull.
  11. I agree, you don't see anyone else, beside Kanmaru maybe, accusing others of being self-centered when they say don't want reclassing in the next game, and basically resorting to ad hominem. Now for the actual matter at hand, I'm not fond reclassing. I like having my options limited because, well to try and make this clear, it's kind of like when you play Dark Souls. Most people play it because it's a challenging game. Same reason I rather reclassing doesn't return, I like something of a challenge. Though I should clarify and say I'm fine with branching classes, like in Sacred Stones, or how Fates did it. It's just Awakening-style reclassing I don't like. Either way, IS has to have good class balance in the next game. Reclassing would be less of an issue if certain classes weren't so OP. Like in Awakening, Dark Flier was a basically a mage as a Pegasus Knight, and then there's Galeforce. Overall, class balance is something that should be considered relevant to the current disscusion.
  12. Create a Personality Gimmick!

    I feel like I heard that somewhere before. Like I'm damn sure that was in a JRPG before. @DisobeyedCargoOn the subject of a blind lord, I once had a Fate rewrite where Corrin actually stayed at the main Nohrian castle, on account of Garon actually being himself this time around, and not some slime. Rumors were abound about Corrin's true heritage, and thus someone tried poisoning him to get rid of him. Due to his dragon DNA, the poison wasn't that effective, but it did leave him blind. And that would be why he doesn't wear shoes. He would be like Toph from Avatar, but with Dragonvein powers instead of Earthbending.
  13. Create a Personality Gimmick!

    How about we put some Konosuba characters in the game? I mean, come on. Be hella fun blowing shit up with a Megamin kind of character.
  14. Saw this on the subreddit... this is some weird ass shit. Sounds like he's from New York.
  15. Create a Personality Gimmick!

    So the anti-Ricken?
