  1. Tales Of Vesperia Definitive Edition

    Depends on what you define as latest. I really didn't like the cast of Zestiria. I've never been less attached to a Tales cast than with that one, with Rose being the only one that actually stood out positively to me.
  2. Tales Of Vesperia Definitive Edition

    I disagree. Yuri and Rita are fantastic in their own right, not just by contrast.
  3. Tales Of Vesperia Definitive Edition

    I love almost the entire cast. Yuri is the best protagonist. Flynn makes for a good foil. Estelle is generic, but likeable. Rapide is a good boy. Rita is simply the best. Judith is alright. Raven is a personal favorite. The only exception is Karol. I hate Karol. Hands down the most annoying Tales playable character ever.
  4. The 10 characters most deserving to be added

    I'm all for Duessel and Selena. Cormag is a bigger add for me, but why not include all 3 of them on a Grado banner?
  5. Only characters that would aesthetically fit into the Fire Emblem setting. I'd be okay with Link, for example, but not Mario or Kirby. Or if Fire Emblem characters were to dress as other Nintendo characters or 3rd party characters, I hope it would be ones that would aesthetically mesh, like Link, Zelda, Joker, or Simon/Richter. But even if they dress as immersion breakers, like Mario, it wouldn't be any worse than the ridiculous bunny costumes, Santa outfits, swimsuits, and wedding dresses that already plague the game.
  6. When I hear "action RPG" I think of a Diablo-like dungeon crawler, because these have traditionally been called ARPGs. That's what I'm hoping for.
  7. Everyone has favorite characters. Who are yours? Why are they your favorites? Are they in Heroes? How well are they represented? Include as many or as few favorites as you want. I'm doing a top 20 because I simply couldn't limit it to a more typical 10 or fewer. Order matters for the most part: I'm at 13/20 (or 65%) in Heroes. Not bad, but not great.
  8. I wouldn't demote Sothe. He carried an entire team of weak, worthless liabilities on his back through the hardest parts of one of the hardest games. He's the most important Jeigan ever, because winning without him is basically impossible. So he earned his rating and some.
  9. The 10 characters most deserving to be added

    Yes, yes, I know. He is my second most hated Tellius character (behind only Meg) for a great many reasons. However, I included him to show just how easy such a banner would be to add. My preferred would be Bastian (my favorite character in all of Fire Emblem) and Kieran on Green, Geoffery on Blue, and Lucia on Red. Brom is easy enough to fit in with Calill and Largo. Astrid and Makalov would, of course fit in cleanly with Marcia. How such a banner would actually sell is another story, but I suppose a horseback archer and a top tier pegasus rider could sell it.
  10. The 10 characters most deserving to be added

    There are other viable opportunities. There are at least 2, if not 3 possible Crimean retainer banners alone. You could even do an all cav banner and cover every color at once (Makalov on Red, Geoffery on Blue, Kieran on Green, and Astrid on Colorless).
  11. Whether the spirit was ranked far too low or far too high for their actual power or relevance, which spirits do you think missed the mark. I'll start. Morag as a Novice is hilarious. As an experienced leader and strongest fighter of an entire country, she should be at least an Ace, if not a Legend.
  12. The 10 characters most deserving to be added

    The thing about villains and anti-heroes/anti-villains is that they represent ideal Grand Hero Battle rewards (when they aren't wasting our time with baffling choices like Kana), which puts them at a different schedule than other characters. I personally won't be listing them for that reason, as I think most of them are inevitable, and represent long term content for the game.
  13. The 10 characters most deserving to be added

    1. Cormag (Sacred Stones) The most glaring absence from Magvel, and the last character needed to adequately represent the game. 2. Nasir (Path of Radiance/Radiant Dawn) 3. Ranulf (Path of Radiance/Radiant Dawn) 4. Volke (Path of Radiance/Radiant Dawn) 5. Jill (Path of Radiance/Radiant Dawn) 6. Wolt (Binding Blade) 7. Marcus (Binding Blade/Blazing Sword) 8. Pent (Blazing Sword) 9. Louise (Blazing Sword) 10. Rinkah (Fates) Honorable mentions: Lethe (Path of Radiance/Radiant Dawn) Selkie (Fates) Bastian (Path of Radiance/Radiant Dawn) Duessel (Sacred Stones) Astram (Shadow Dragon/New Mystery) Panne (Awakening) Keaton (Fates)
  14. The problem with Fire Emblem (and this is why it is known for having such a divisive, toxic community), is that each of its games are wildly different in mechanics. In my opinion, it's Awakening or Path of Radiance. Awakening because it's such a great case example of features long requested by the community delivered in one grandiose, accessible, interesting, and endlessly replayable package. Path of Radiance because it is, IMO, Fire Emblem at its storytelling, map design, and creative peak. Many would say Blazing Sword, and that is also valid. It's a great overall package. Some will say Shadow Dragon or New Mystery, simply because they came first. And that's entirely valid, even if I vehemently disagree due to how mechanically basic and lacking in personality these games are. Fates would also be a controversial, but valid answer. It's certainly Fire Emblem at its most ambitious due to its scope, mechanical refinement, and emphasis on support conversations. Ambitious is certainly an apt word to describe it, though I would argue that Intelligent Systems is at its worst when its ambition outweighs its resources, which is very much the case here (and with Radiant Dawn and Geneology - very flawed, but admirable games in their own right). You might even get someone who says Echoes: Shadows of Valentia. And they'd be totally wrong.
