  1. Post a fact about the person above!

    Is Catria's #1 Fan
  2. Headed for Japan in the Morning...

    Jet lag had me sleeping by 7 the night before, so by 4 I was ready to get moving. And yeah, the area we are in has a lot of quiet paths up and down the mountains (or large hills, because apparently what I think of as mountains are actually not mountains). I kind of just explored a bit. I found a torii gate and temple that looks like it's been out of use for a long time, so that was cool. All in all it's been a pretty great experience so far :D
  3. Headed for Japan in the Morning...

    I'm studying with my university so, I didn't have to do much of the planning. The program fee was a lot, but it covers college credit also so..... sorry I don't have much advice! And I guess that covers the first question too :D The program is based in Hiratsuka, and we visit Tokyo, Kyoto, and Osaka as well. Hiratsuka is kind of far out and the other day I was still jet lagged, so I got up around 4 am and went for a hike by myself into the country. It was basically the best thing ever. Thanks everyone for the well wishes!
  4. Think I'll find a copy of Mystery of the Emblem at Super Potato?
  5. Comedy Critique Club

    8/5 -- I like that one a lot. Q: How many psychologists does it take to change a light bulb? A: One, but it will take 2 years, $20000, and the light bulb must WANT to change.
  6. Comedy Critique Club

    6/15 For long set up with good but not outstanding punchline. Still worth a chuckle. Schrödinger's cat walks into a bar. And doesn't.
  7. Ask a stupid question, get a stupid answer

    Home stay. Do you want to take this outside?!?!?
  8. Yeah, most of the maps were pretty fun. Personally I don't care for adventures in the multiverse, but the story was done pretty well as far as it goes, and as people have said above, better than most of the Fates stuff....
  9. Same. On that topic, I really wanted to like SoV on the whole, but that's probably a topic for a different thread.
  10. No. No game is worth a x5 price hike when you can just emulate it. I know not everyone does emulation, but for this series, especially if you want to play the older games (which are VERY worth playing) you'll probably have to do it eventually. Might as well start now. As far as recommendations, a lot of people have mentioned the GBA series. Since you're coming off the 3DS games, you might want to start with Sacred Stones. It's got a world map, lots of supports, ect. Past that, Shadow Dragon is a lot of fun, but just keep in mind it doesn't stray much from the 20+ year old source material.
  11. Odds of this game coming to the switch?

    As long as your computer can run Dolphin, you can just emulate it. It's fun although it's definitely one of the easiest in the series... Good luck!!
  12. Do you ever want to be a hero?

    Hero? No. Villain? ABSOLUTELY. Villains get the best music, the best outfits, and they have the best powers so the heroes look like underdogs AND they get to be megalomaniacs which is radical. Even when they finally lose, they get to die in noble combat with the only person who could ever match their strength. That's what I want to be.
  13. You're not the only one, I don't really like it either. On the other hand, I feel like the turnwheel was IS's way of adjusting for the bad map design, so hopefully it won't come back. As far its story relevance, it's weird, but I guess it doesn't bother me since stuff like that isn't totally uncommon in games. I think sometimes you just accept story-gameplay segregation for the sake of gameplay...
  14. I was going to say the same thing But yeah, I'd definitely play it. I'm just not sure how well it would be able to preserve the Fire Emblem feel... But I'd give it a shot at least. I've only played the first Advance Wars, but I enjoyed it and I think a Fire Emblem twist would be a lot of fun.
