  1. Shadow Dragon DLC images surface

    To be honest, I was kind of anticipating Corrin would have a conversation with one of the SD characters, but of all people I wasn't expecting Navarre... The convo has yet to pop up on Youtube but I look foward to seeing it, it should be... interesting.
  2. I'm still on Chapter 3 so I haven't gotten to face any arcanists yet. That being said, I'll keep an eye out for that Steel Bow. Thanks!
  3. Personality-wise, I'd go with Faye. If there's one character type I absolutely hate, it's the satellite character, and Faye has to be one of the worst uses of the trope I've seen in modern media, let alone the Fire Emblem series. To be fair, I tried to like her at first, but as I began her supports with Alm and Silque, her obsession with the former became so. Goddamn. Irritating! I know there are other characters in the series that may also qualify as "satellites", but the difference there is that they have other character traits to fall back on. Gameplay-wise, I'm going with Python. He has consistently proven to be the most useless character in Alm's story. Python not only sucks at dealing damage, but in almost every battle I've used him in, he dies. As a result, I end up wasting turns on Mila's timewheel because perfectionistic nature forbid I complete the battle with one less unit. Honestly, I'm beginning to wonder whether I should start leaving him behind in every future map.
  4. Others don't like that I like: Corrin: I really never had a problem with them, and while I respect the opinions of those who don't like them because they found them a bland character, I can't help but find it ridiculous that people blame Corrin for the Fates' poor story instead of oh, I don't know, the writers?! And it's not like Corrin was the only one to be negatively impacted character-wise outside of support conversations, either, almost every main character, Azura and Xander being two of the worst offenders, suffered to some degree under the narrative. Overall, while I would have liked Corrin to have been more developed, I still don't mind them as much as other people do. Jakob: I'm not entirely sure whether this one counts, because I hear how popular he is and then I see a lot of people dumping on him. Honestly, I really can't see what the problem is with him. Yes, he's a dick, but he's an entertaining dick (think Romano from Hetalia), and he actually is capable of showing respect to other people, in his own way, of course, which I thought made him more three-dimensional. Clive: Seriously, people hate this guy? He's probably one of the most consistently likeable characters I've ever seen in a Fire Emblem game, not to mention how much of an excellent front liner he's been in my play-through so far. Others like that I don't like: Ephraim: I don't get why people like him so much. I really don't. He's not developed, whether he has flaws is more debatable than it should be, and his route is nothing but a glorified power trip. And what's worst of all is that you can completely avoid his route and not miss anything. All this, for me, culminates in a character who's put on a pedestal for no valid reason and is pointless for understanding the game's plot. Ryoma: He's a good unit... That's the only positive thing I'll say about him. Ryoma, to me, epitomizes everything I hate about how Hoshido is framed: he comes off as perfect, but once you stick around, you see how self-righteous and narrow-minded he really is, and needless to say, it has driven me up the wall far too many times. I think the one thing that pushed him into hate territory for me was his actions in Chapter 12 of Conquest. Python: I don't mind his personality, but god he sucks as an archer. Almost every time I've used him he ends up dying, and it's a shame because I actually wanted to like him.
  5. So the more I’ve seen content on Warriors, the more I’ve noticed that fans are a lot more divided on the younger Aytolian twin than they are on his older counterpart (given they have opinions at all). So I’d like to know what you think about Rowan as a character. For the sake of objectivity I’m not going to impose my own views and, please, keep it civil.
  6. A concept I personally find fun to think about but I’ve almost never seen addressed online, which I will do now. If specific Pokemon were Fire Emblem classes, what could you see them as? I’ll begin with some of the starter Pokemon: Blastoise- Knight Meganium- Cleric Decidueye- Archer Samurott- Myrmidon Delphox- Mage Greninja- Thief Incineroar- Fighter

  9. What is your favorite pokemon Soundtrack?

    From what I've listened to, I'd say SM and RSE/ORAS overall, the former of which rivals HGSS as having my favorite trainer battle theme in the entire series.
  10. Was mega evolution ever necessary for you in X&Y?

    In spite of all the free Mega Stones, it honestly felt like the main game was limiting you with what you could do with the new feature (i.e. the vast majority of Mega Stones were reserved for the post game, rendering a small number of Megas accessible before then), and that really annoyed me. I'm so glad that didn't carry over to ORAS and Sun and Moon.
  11. Video game music

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5LCQ3N4a4fg I'm posting the Roar version, but both versions of this song are fantastic.
  12. So if Owain, Navarre, Oboro, and Niles were added in a free update, what playable characters can you see being added via the upcoming DLC packages for each game? Here are my two cents: Fates: Azura, Silas, Laslow, Beruka, Setsuna, Subaki (I was planning on also listing the ninja twins, Felicia, and Jakob, but since knives haven't been confirmed via update yet, I'm not considering them (I still love you guys)) Awakening: Virion, Cherche, Nowi, Gaius, Severa, Lon'qu, Tharja SD: Merric, Ogma, Minerva, Lena, Linde, Julian
  13. How would you improve the story of Fates?

    * Remove the option of choosing sides and rewrite the entire Revelation path. * Make Corrin their own character rather than another Avatar. If anything is left open to change, leave it at gender. * Make Valla a known, albeit ruined, kingdom rather than something hidden in another dimension with some ridiculous curse. This would make the skepticism about the involvement of a third party far more valid. * If the route split is kept, then upgrade Azura to Lord status. Birthright would follow Azura, Corrin would follow Nohr, and Revelation would follow them both. * Keep Azura and Corrin’s Vallite heritage, but only on their mothers’ side. Otherwise, their heritage is strictly Hoshidan and Nohrian respectively (since they’re already associated with those kingdoms anyway). And while I’m at it, remove the switcheroo. * Play up Hoshido’s xenophobia more and make Nohr’s figures more sympathetic. * Keep the Royal families’ relationship to the dragons but take away Corrin’s ability to transform (since that was such a big-lipped alligator moment anyway). I realize this would require a major design overhaul but since Corrin’s more “unique” characteristics aren’t addressed anyway, it wouldn’t cause that much outrage. * Have the revelation of Azura and Corrin being cousins double as the revelation of the two being Valla's last heirs. * Rewrite Anankos' motivation. Maybe he destroyed his kingdom out of spite for the fact that people were losing faith in him? What if the war between Hoshido and Nohr started because he found out that the Arete and Mikoto had lived and had assassinated them (while making it look like the other kingdom was responsible)? And what if he was so paranoid of his sovereignty being challenged that he proceeded to target Azura and Corrin, who know nothing of his existence at that point, because they are the only ones left who can take that power away from him?
  14. Hey, your opinion is your opinion.
