  1. @DMan64 I fully agree with your opinions on the avatar, but I'd extend it to cover also marriage and child units...I think none of them are inherently bad for fire emblem, but the issue is IS can't be bothered to properly make them well written and integrated into the story, so it comes across as pandering. Path of radiance could've worked even with an avatar, marriage, children, etc... as long as it made sense in the game's world and was well executed in general.

    Navigation rooms just like in Metroid fusion are now in my game!
  3. Thinking back to this topic now that some time has passed...I'd be fine with the marriage (not child units though as that's a bit too much imo) but the romancing would only be ok for me if the characters were well written in my opinion. Having a lot of ""quirky"" or """funny""" characters destroys the atmosphere and immersion for me. That being said, I do sometimes wish we could get a well written fire emblem with stuff like marriage in it.
  4. It's just that echoes' sales I'm worried will be interpreted by Nintendo as "hmmm....that game where we mocked pair up in a trailer didn't do as well as awakening and fates..." rather than "well...it did alright considering the game's time of release and how it was a remake of an obscure game". Other companies have made sweeping decisions about series based on the sales of their games, regardless of circumstances unfortunately. Yeah I'll admit if the writing was better and the characters weren't one-note for a lot of fans, then even I'd be fine with the marriage and stuff. It's just that Nintendo hyped me up for fates and a lot of us thought it'd be even better than awakening was story-wise...but for a lot of us, our hype was wrong in the end and I don't want to feel stabbed in the back ever again. I'm going through a difficult period of my life right now and seeing series I loved get transformed makes it even tougher for me to keep going in general...
  5. I'm very cautiously excited for three houses...however, there's still some things that worry me like the player being the main character, or the fact that romancing is hinted at as you can "build relationships" in what looks to be a new version of mycastle from fates, except you can walk around in it now. Tellius is my favourite series for fire emblem, but sadly there's still ways IS could mess up or throw older fans under the bus, despite the marketing for the game so far seemingly trying to take inspiration from the tellius games. Firstly, echoes sold horribly compared to awakening and fates, not even reaching one million copies cold while the others got over 2 million. Then there's the fact that, if Nintendo made a "Fire Emblem Three houses-Pet Your Waifus!!" trailer the fanbase would honestly eat it up as we older fans are a minority-IS doesn't need us and they know it. The sad, sad truth is that world building, character development, base conversations, etc... are still at risk of being pushed to the side in favour of pretty anime girls and a bare bones, functional plot (that might not even bother to have a continent name like in fates). Don't get me wrong, I desperately want to be wrong about all this and have three houses basically turn out to be kind of a "tellius part 3" in terms of style and gameplay...but I just can't get widely hyped and excited knowing the risks attached to this game.
  6. Nope. Keep limited editions, at least the kind with exclusive in game stuff, as a thing of the past. Imo as much people should have access to any game's feature as possible if they're going to buy said game.

    I probably should spice things up a bit for myself and take a little break from my game...here's what I've done today so far! Here is a reskin of the knight class from gba fire emblem! Obviously still wip but I hope the final result will be pretty cool!

    Water great achievement this is if I do say so myself! Thanks to MysticShadow on discord for his amazing coding skills at helping me with all this stuff!

    Hey my dudes, I've finished my water effect shader after several months of trial and error.
  10. I'm personally glad that my waifus Elincia and Miccy are getting some love again in heroes <3

    I woke up at 3am in the morning and, since I couldn't get back to sleep, I just worked on my game some more.

    Glad to hear it =) Sometimes I doubt myself and my game, thinking that it's all pointless and nobody cares...but then I have others to remind me that's not true! That my game is actually exciting people and helping me make friends even!
  13. Fire Emblem: Ascension

    It seems like you've put a lot of work into this...and I have some skill ideas I'd love to see in a fire emblem game... -a skill that, if the unit is carrying a weapon that has the weapon triangle advantage over their current weapon, automatically switches to said weapon upon combat. Can be turned on and off whenever. -more third tier OP skills like in radiant dawn - third tier classes in general should come back Hopefully everything goes well with your project =)

    I agree. Sadly, Nintendo has moved on from us non-smash fans for now (for the most part anyways)...so we have to move on too. I've been playing fire emblem path of radiance again (this is my 6th playthrough) and I've just finished Xenoblade Chronicles 2 at 130 hours...I don't know about you, but I won't let Nintendo disappoint me ever again, as I hope to not care about them and the whole "hype train" so much in the future. Sometimes it's just damn frustrating being a fan of video games-getting attached to wonderful series that end up getting very little love compared to other series...
