  1. @Tolvir Xenonauts is practically the successor to Xcom UFO Defense. It's pretty good, too.
  2. I really wish Square would revive Vagrant Story.
  3. @carefreejules That is so much better. 😊
  4. Fire Emblem Radiant Dawn Sound Effects

    Here's the thread with the link.
  5. Reliable and affordable digital art program?

    @Anacybele I also recommend Autodesk Sketchbook. Easy to use and likely compatible with your device. The other recommendation would be Pencil2d. https://www.pencil2d.org/ It is primarily an animation tool but I found sketching on it to be natural and enjoyable. It is also free, so nice resource to have if you decide to do more with it. If you have a Windows Tablet, this will work but won't work on android. If Pixelart is something you are interested in, https://www.pixilart.com/draw. Also, free and you can use this on pretty much anything.
  6. I would rather have an another 3DS Fire Emblem game instead of money and time spent on a spinoff game. Just saying the words spinoff brings up bile in my mouth and face turns hulk green.
  7. He really was the new heart of Nintendo but I think Mr Iwata's passing really affected him. He was a good guy. I hope he gets the retirement he wanted.
  8. Where to Play or watch FE4 and FE5?

    It would be cool to see modern versions of Thracia 776 and Genealogy of the Holy War. Echoes turned out pretty well and that had a fairly short development time. I never imagined Fire Emblem Gaiden ever being remade til Echoes came out. Definitely a nice surprise after Fates.
  9. The influence should be dependent on if said criticism is valid.
  10. My Biggest Frustration With This Game

    This iteration of Fire Emblem seems to be made for a particular portion of the fanbase, and I'm not it. What is going on with the clothes in this game? These students are in a war college dressed in that way? The trailer also felt like it was implying a relationship simulator which was also a failure in Fates. I'm not sure I'm liking what I'm seeing.
  11. Fire Emblem Three Houses

    I really hope there aren't three paths so Nintendo can sell you each separately a la Fates style. Here are 30 dollars per path. I don't think it is from what was shown but Fates marketing has me concerned.
  12. Cosplay Advice

    I worked for Katsucon for a number of years and my advice to you is to go with a relatively easy one to do without spending too much time or money. I'm guessing you are just doing it for fun? I've seen too many Kingdom Hearts, Legend of Zelda or Full Metal Alchemist so avoid those. Weapons are pretty much not going to happen so forget about any cosplay that is reliant on it. I remember a time when peace knots were enough on weapons but that was a different time. Your Spiderman Noir idea sounds cool, and Naesala sounds awesome, but the wings could be a problem.
  13. Have You Had A Near-Death Experience?

    @Wist Zodiac is a small military boat and the assailants were drug runners.
  14. Have You Had A Near-Death Experience?

    I and other members of my team were on recon in a zodiac when we were attacked in a particularly swampy environment, and we were forced to use the zodiac to use as cover. I, unfortunately, slipped with 85 lbs of gear on my back. There really isn't a lot of swimming with that much weight on you. I was gurgling water and lost consciousness. All I can tell you from that incident is that all I saw was darkness and it wasn't exactly what I would call comforting and fuzzy. You should really not think about such unpleasant things while you live. Enjoy your family, live life to the fullest and face the fact that we all die eventually. And when the time does come, you won't be afraid. I've also had other NDEs and it has been darkness every time. Maybe, there is something beyond but I have yet to see it.
  15. Wargroove General Thread

    The world builder has quite the potential. It is fairly easy to use so far, and you can edit quite a bit.
