  • I fight for...
  1. I only really burn out on a game if I don't like it very much to begin with and that's (usually) not the case with FE. I mean I like a lot of games, so it's not uncommon for me to go through long stretches of time playing games that aren't Fire Emblem but I wouldn't say it's necessarily because I'm burned out on it.
  2. Ultimately, I prefer it to be in relativity good quality as well as complete in box, but it's not a necessity and I will buy used/poorish condition if I have to. Though when it comes to disc games (or DS style carts) original case is a must otherwise they're too difficult to organize.
  3. Both for me. Usually physical when it comes console games because I like having a sort of material collection (even if it isn't that big), though for PC I buy digitally because there isn't really any other viable option at this point.
  4. I don't think NoA particularly cares about religious themes anymore what with priest and Bishop being classes in some western released games.
  5. I am a firm believer that Jugdral's day in the sun will come. All it needs is a remake, and I mean if Gaiden got remade, what reason would they possibly have for neglecting Genealogy of the Holy War (which if I'm not mistaken has more of a following)?
  6. Absolutely not. While I admit Conquest's AI sometimes gets rather crafty with it which is fun, I'm not too crazy about the fact that one aspect of the mechanic completely cancels out the other.
  7. I would love to see a new game in the Soul Blazer series (which, for those who might not know includes: Soul Blazer, Illusion of Gaia, Terranigma), as they were the best action RPGs on the Super Nintendo as far as I'm concerned. Unfortunately, I doubt it will ever happen considering the company that made them went defunct years ago and we haven't even seen virtual console ports of these games. Samurai Shodown should make a comeback too, I find no other fighting game really scratches the same itch as this series for me. I agree with you about Kirby Air Ride and Chu-Chu Rocket as well.
  8. 100% this. Fates' "triangle" was a mess and I hope it was just a one time thing. Though I would like the game's Kinshi Knight class (or something similar) to return because I love the idea of a flier/archer.
  9. Here is the one I made: Explanations to come later maybe?
  10. Wow, I'm honestly surprised that terminology like that was used so early on in the series, I thought fans wouldn't come up with something like that at least until the internet. I wonder if the word has a literal translation?
  11. This is something I see with some frequency in the series. In the past I have referred to it as the "Cross Knights Attack" after Eldigan's crew from Genealogy of the Holy War, but does the fanbase have a more accepted term for this occurrence that I'm unaware of?
  12. For my first few playthroughs it was because it is a game I consider it to be hard but fair. I would repeatedly die against a certain boss or obstacle but would always try again because I felt like I might be able to beat it next time. After awhile though, I could just breeze through the entire thing relatively quickly given how familiar I had become with it, even reaching the point where I could beat it on one life. There was something immensely satisfying about this for me as I had never really reached that point with a game, so I would just keep on playing Castlevania and enjoyed myself every time. I can't say for sure if anyone else would have this sort of reaction to this game, but it's what happened with me.
  13. I became basically obsessed with the original Castlevania a few years back after buying it on 3DS Virtual Console. It got to the point where I would play through it at least twice every day, one day I even looped through the game so many times that I maxed out the stage counter at 99. Even now it's still one of my go to games when I'm bored and I don't know what to play.
  14. I really like the SaGa games that I've played (Romancing SaGa, Romancing SaGa 3, and SaGa Frontier), if they count. It's battle system is unlike any other turn-based RPG that I know of, and it was open world before a lot of other games were. Also, Mega Man 4 is my personal favourite in the series.
  15. -always check the enemy's range -always check the enemy's inventory/skills -it is often a good idea to let an enemy attack first so they're weak enough to finish off during the player phase (though not always) -place units on forts or stairs to prevent reinforcements -have fun?
