  1. Favorite OST from the series?

    Overall I would maybe say Echoes as well tied but Radiant Dawn does have so many good themes. As for my favorite track, tough choice. But I'd narrow it down between Rise to the Challenge (moreso for the remixes of it being so good and it just being awesome), Tearing Shadows (moreso me viewing it as Katarinas theme and how sad her life was, plus the orchestral version played at the concert is god tier), id Hope being what purpose should have been and in my opinion describes most of awakening through a single piece of music, Twilight of the Gods (Honestly one of the best final map themes and I feel like it near perfectly could be used to show the entirity of echoes ost), and Heritors of Arcadia (for providing a leagcy sort of way for the entirity of echoes lore, given it's sang by Silques VA so I and several others think of it as a song she wrote after the war about Mila) As for an unnofficial track, More Than Just Comrades, it is such a nice medley mix of several tracks and sums up fire emblem recruitment themes.
  2. Anything I should know?

    Magic negates terrain so its all base hits. Every character has a magic list (and I mean everyone minus Alm) and can learn certain spells. If you're playing through this for fun then don't worry about level ups, but if you do want to have a highly powerful postgame team then put all the male villagers and mercenaries through the mercenary line at least once for more levelups and the levelup loop since the mercenary tier 3 promotes back into villager. There is no weapon triangle only weapon stats, and not all bows are effective against fliers so item descriptions help in some cases. Besides that I can't think of anything else the game wouldn't tell you so enjoy. Echoes is among my top 3 fire emblems so I hope tat shows how good it can be.
  3. What popular franchises do you dislike?

    Xenoblade is loved a lot, but I think most of us understand it's not everyones taste and some of the complaints are valid. I myself really enjoyed 2 at least and still need to finish 1 and maybe get X if it gets a switch port. Anyways on topic here, I despise Animal Crossing, just absolutely hate it. I wouldn't call myself a pokemon fan postgen6, but here's to hoping for either gen 8 being amazing or gen 4 remakes. Not a fan of most shooter either though I do own a few, COD would be the one I hate the most of them all. Halo I can tolerate and somehow I enjoy battlefront 2 despite how much EA makes me want to scream at their greediness and lack of content.
  4. What are your unpopular Smash opinions?

    Corrins counter in 4 didn't needed to be nerfed, okay trolly comment aside, Fire Emblem having so many reps is fine, since it is representing a series with literal hundreds of unique characters, yet no-one bats an eye at the fact the Mario series is only missing Waluigi, Toad, and Paper Mario as reps, and they are still in the game as assists or moveset part or trophies Not a fan of the new Link in Ultimate, and I used to main him in 4 Honestly I would love to see a lot more Nintendo characters get in from minor games if only to draw attention to those series, and by that same logic I also want many 3rd party characters depending on how iconic they are, their relation with Nintendo, and importance to video game history.
  5. @Ertrick36 So this is a reply to the convo chain way back in june but figured I'd post here so anyone else can look. SPOILERS FOR VALKYRIA CHRONICLES ANIME AND LATE VALKYRIA CHRONICLES 1 GAME Anyways hope your playthrough of the VC4 demo is going well and we're less than a month for 4's release. I'll probably end up getting the game the week after due to how I pre-ordered it and how it'll be shipped. For anyone still looking to pre-order it I remember seeing this but gamestop ( I know terrible place) is throwing in a official valkyria chronicles 4 hat of the shibe dog for any and all pre-orders. I hope mine comes with it since I pre-ordered way back when they first launched pre-orders but if not it's not major to me. I'm not willing to cancel and replace my order just for a hat and possibly lose my special edition.
  6. How do you create your endgame teams?

    Usually I use units I like throughout the whole game and that determines my endgame team. Deployment slots affect that too. I will say the most I got into planning a team was Radiant Dawn's endgame. Since that limits the unit slots a lot for that games cast. I also was influenced by general utility along with legendary weapons. So I ended up bringing Ike, Micaiah, Sothe, Sanaki, Nephenee, Mia, Jill, Titania, Mist, Soren, Ilyana, Elincia, Gatrie, Shinon, and the required units with Leanne as my heron and the dragons. (If I had a choice the dragons and heron would have been benched and I would have brought Calil, Zihark, Geoffrey, and probably Astrid) I basically balanced out units I needed for that (tanks, mages, healers, etc) of the units I liked and also had units present to wield legendary weapons (Micaiah, Sanaki, Ilyana, and Soren for their legendary element tomes, Nephenee for wishblade, Shinon for the Double Bow, Elincia got the Alondite, even though Amiti was probably better, Mia got the Vague Katti, Sothe the Baselard, Jill got Urvan after Ike used, Ike had Ragnell, and Gatrie just had a silver greatlance)
  7. My Thoughts/Hopes for Three Houses

    Like I said it's just a theory. I don't think it's said but I thought the main voice in the trailer, at least towards the end, was Edelgards and that is what I based that part of. Huh I haven't looked at the map too much but I thought her country while decently sized wasn't among the biggest, I'm probably wrong though.
  8. My Thoughts/Hopes for Three Houses

    Oh boy, well here is my take to these questions. 1. I want the avatar to support the protagonist trio and it focuses on the trio. But I do also think that the women in the trailer will be some form of antagonist. My evidence for this is we see Claude attacking one of the soldiers that is also identical to the soldiers defending the women earlier in the trailer. 2. Tellius gameplay additions would be excellent. I specifically like the bonus exp method in that game, shove, canto, class mastery skills, and the Soldier>Halberdier>Sentinel class line. 3. Edelgard because she's the most memorable design from the trailer due to most screentime 4. Definitely getting the game asap after release, though IDk if day one or day one special edition. For the special edition at least I need to see what's in it. 5. A direct would be great to promote it and discuss more about it, doesn't even have to be a tree houses direct, a second Fire Emblem direct or a general direct with more details will be enough for me.. Now I wanted to share what I think the game will be like storywise, since the way I answered question 1 is based heavily off this possibility, as unlikely as it would be. The women in the trailer is most likely a high priestess or priestess general leading the holy army against rebels while also searching for pieces of the fire emblem (The house crests) and or falchion of this game. I say she is something like a priestess due to her resemblance to the mural seen at the start which worshipped this games divine dragon equivalent. I'm guessing that the church of this holy religion is very strict and has much influence over the continent. There is a rebel group, possibly from a country within the continent, who has control over a crest(s) and or pieces of the Falchion. I will say that they're probably going to be the real bad guys in terms of actions, while the church is against them. Now bring in Edelgard, a former priestess of the church who left (her lines of she'll return and don't forget me to her mentor, who I'll assume may have been the priestess or the girl who resembles Tiki sleeping on the throne) the church possibly due to a different view of religion and how the church has been using it to control the continent and Edelgard is also assumingly a princess of a small country, hence why she would be part of the church due to royal obligations but also not a big country so her leaving wouldn't be too impactful. Edelgard attends a military academy in her own country and learns under the avatar. Claude and Demitri are also from small countries and were not forced into serving the church like Edelgard did for a time and also attend the same military academy. Now Eedelgard most likely influenced her father into an alliance with Demitri and Claude's countries, most likely for not only military strength but possibly also an agreement to disagree with the church's hard fist of religion. Anyways Claude and Demitri temporarily return to their home countries and then Edelgard remains at the academy. The academy is then attacked by the church who found out about the upcoming mutiny (the alliance was done under the table in a way as to not bring immediate action upon themselves until preparations were finished. Edelgard and avatar defend the castle with the forces they have until Claude and Demitri pull an Ephraim and break through the enemy siege. The three are united and now have to liberate most of their countries before taking the church's center countries head on. Also probably clashes with the other rival group as well. Basically the church is an anti-hero group with misunderstood beliefs about the religion, Edelgard and co view the religion in a not-so strict way and want to try to change things, and the rebel countries want to completely dispose of the religion due to long times of oppression performed by the church. I know the whole religion plot I've explained is very very likely to be somewhat offensive to many groups. But I do want to say that I'm not saying that the church is wrong or evil or religion is bad, just different interpretations of the same source material happen and that may cause wars over it. One of the most famous examples in history would be the crusades, which coincidentally could be an inspiration for this with how Fire Emblem draws a lot from general medieval history (obviously it's not 100% accurate to it since it is also a fantasy series) and even if it's based on the crusades the character designs by no means have to be from that era, which we can tell isn't with Edelgard and co's military-ish outfits. In short this is just an idea I have on what the plot could be but I'm probably wrong.
  9. Yeah a review/first impression post will probably be the best way to go, maybe 1-2 screenshots but otherwise not that many. Also just a random question I have that you can answer later. Does the hit rate/% seem really wack to you? Maybe I'm too used to good accuracy weapons but honestly tank, lancer, sniper, and even normal rifle shots seem to miss, and then shocktroopers can barely hit from like 8-9 feet away. Thank Naga the mortar class is really good with dealing damage and ohko enemies. They even have interception fire which is very innacurate but does hit every now and then.
  10. Oh wow nice, I'll look forward to your reactions since I already did everything in the demo. It covers the prologue, chapters 1+2, and has an exclusive mission once you beat the other 3 levels. That exclusive mission gives you like 40k exp and 100k money if you A rank it, which I did first try, otherwise like 36k exp and 92k money which is still good for a B rank. Hoping it transfers exp and money to the full game that way I can scout abuse immediately lol.
  11. Here's some good news, Valkyria Chronicles 4 demo is out on Nintendo eshop, PS store, and X box store. It at least goes to chapter 1 of the game and data from the demo can be transferred over.
  12. Smash Direct This Wednesday

    I am hoping for at least 2 new character reveal trailers and probably at least 1 echo fighter. My possible predictions are New Fighters: Rex and Pyra, Simon Belmont. Echo Fighter: Dark Samus.
  13. I would love it if they did that so new characters could be brought in. It'd actually be hard to predict who would win with units already in the game not being eligible, and even if they didn't do alts, it could be done so they can add the next batch of units, like the Mia + Dorcas + Lute banner.
  14. Jarod as a Disciple of Order?

    I know this is months in the past but is it implied. I'm playing through RD right now and there's a base conversation in part 4, before final map 1, between Yune and Stefan. Yune says the branded she's seen are Soren (tactician around Ike), Micaiah, Stefan, and the little girl around Elincia. Whish more heavily implies Amy is a branded.
  15. Most useless unit in Fire Emblem?

    Oooh I have three nominees. Wendy: Already has been talked about Meg: Absolutely a trash unit like my gods i benched her immediately and it is actually terrible how the game heavily implies Zihark should get with her cause he can do so much better than that, like Ilyana, she's a arch sage with maxed out strength on my current playthrough, no boosters either. Fiona: Just the trash growth rates and weak base stats doesn't make her worth using, and I'm the guy who's using Astrid on his team, plus better cavaliers, Oscar, Titania, Kieran, Geoffrey, and even Astrid can be argued. Not Makalov though, he's trash but somewhat useful until you can actually form a team.
  16. In short what I'd want is Barracks Increase More orbs Ways to get seasonals besides reruns or legendary summoning Ways to get five stars more frequently in general besides summoning Item exchange, I do not need 395 arena crests, so let me change them to orbs or feathers For the last three options, a brief idea is a direct orb exchange for a character, it may rotate daily, and we'll say cost something like 50 orbs minimum for a random 5 star, that way people can still summon with the rng chances and others can hoard and get five stars, though since it is random they can get literally anyone in the game as a five star, hope you're enjoying your 5* Felicia or Lissa you just summoned.
  17. Character Select Screen: Smash Ultimate

    Yeah series sort is what I want too. Also is that the starting roster? Well I'll be playing a lot of Marth and Cloud until I unlock Shulk and Roy.
  18. Edy being the glue of squad 7? You know I approve. Anyways this seems really hard and reset heavy so I send you my condolences and wish you luck.
  19. I totally can see Dallas, Karl, and Homer being tank operators though that's just me.
  20. Yeah I'll check it next time, I thought quoting a spoiler would still have the spoiler so yeah. I understand, I refuse to spoil Xenoblade 1 and 2's story so yeah.
  21. Nice you got through that level, the next level I imagine will be hard with the mod since you're evenly spreading exp. And in base game it was hard as heck, until you leveled up classes to max. Good luck. Also unrelated note, sorry for very late edit but I edited the comment into spoilers, I've basically been without wifi for a week and will be for 4 weeks so yeah.
  22. Personality wise Rem and Ram match up near perfectly to Flora and Felicia with exception. Rem doesn't commit suicide that way, though she does kinda commit suicide in alternate dimension ways but it's more self sacrifice. Watch the show it'll explain it better I promise. Just know Subaru is hated, especially in the middle by everyone, but it gets better.
  23. yeah, the RE; Zero anime left me wanting more but I haven't checked out the webnovel yet, probably should. How could I forget those two? I really do think they were influenced a lot by Rem and Ram. I also think Jakob is inspired a bit from Black Butler.
