  1. I'm by no means claiming that Nintendo is innocent in any of this; they're not, and they've paid a terrific price in recent years for their mistreatment of 3rd party developers like Squaresoft. But by taking the tack he did, Kaga antagonized Nintendo at a time in which they were already fighting for their life in the corporate arena. This was destined to end badly for Kaga, and he has no one but himself to blame for where he is now.
  2. The main problem Kaga suffers from is Kaga. Look at it this way; Kaga left IS's employment and then immediately started a rival company that would have directly competed with Nintendo. How would you have reacted if you were in their shoes? Too many people on these forums look at this issue from Kaga's perspective and completely ignore the fact that there's another side to the argument; that of the publisher, who's having to compete in a VERY cutthroat industry where even the tiniest miscalculations are often fatal to a company. The unfortunate fact of the matter is that by doing what he did after leaving his position at IS, Kaga picked a fight that he ultimately couldn't win, and now he's paying the price. There's more than one way to crush a competitor, even if Nintendo lost the court case. It really doesn't matter if you win a lawsuit if you can't out compete the other company.
  3. Years ago, I had an Action Replay Code for Path of Radiance that gave Every character's weapons and items infinite uses. I think the original code was made by Jay007, but it was for PAL and someone converted it to NTSC. But I've since lost the code, and I need some kind soul to re-convert the old code back to NTSC so I can use it again. R42B-2GP1-ZE19C UDZ6-3YM4-0YVEP ABMK-9J51-RGVHQ Can someone help me out, here?
  4. This, among many other reasons, is why I dislike Heroes. The entire premise of the game is just wrong at its core. There's a reason why I hate GATCHA games and it all boils down to the fact that they're essentially money making schemes disguised as legitimate games, and it shows in the poor quality of the writing.
  5. Data Transfer Playthrough

    Not even remotely. All you get besides some paltry BEXP is a few lines of altered dialogue. Definitely NOT worth the massive migraine you'll give yourself trying to get through those chapters the "RIGHT" way. As for the rest of your post, your choices seem solid to me, although if it were me I'd try to squeeze some use out of Mist as well as Rhys. Having Two healers with above average stats in Part III of RD is always useful, though that might be a little hard to pull off.
  6. FEXNA (Currently In Private Beta)

    How hard it would be to code an Avatar system in which it would be possible to choose different hair styles and faces?
  7. Should the weapon triangle return?

    To this day I still consider that to be SoV's one fatal flaw; the only dark blot on an otherwise stellar remake. Why the hell couldn't they have put axes in the game? I mean, it takes place in the same world as Shadow Dragon and New Mystery, both of which have axe users. It literally doesn't make sense for there to be no axe users in Valentia. Historically, axes were one of the very first tools man ever made to be weaponized; men were hacking each other to death with axes long before swords or lances were even a thing.
  8. No. Just.... no. I don't like the idea of characters from other FE games suddenly and mysteriously showing up in a completely different world and breaking up the immersion. I don't even want Anna to come back; at this point she's getting more than a little stale as a character.
  9. Battle and Spell Animations Thread

    The squire animation links to the swordsman download instead of the squire. Can anyone fix that?
  10. Who is the main villain of FE10?

    How, exactly, did RD make all this clear? I've beaten that game literally dozens of times, and I don't recall any point at which it's even implied that Sephrain did anything beyond taking advantage of Ashnard's violent, aggressive nature. And I certainly don't recall the game ever dropping a hint that Sephrain might have been the aforementioned traveling old man with the blood pact.
  11. I agree with pretty much everything you said except for this statement. Making Byleth a silent or mostly-silent protagonist would completely defeat the purpose of an avatar character. An avatar is supposed to enable the player to feel as though they are a part of the story; making Byleth silent would take away the feeling of inclusion that an Avatar provides. Of course, all this hinges on Byleth actually being an avatar - IS could very well pull a fast one on all of us and make him a normal character.
  12. I seem to remember seeing a scene of Byleth wielding a lance somewhere. If that is so, then Byleth may be a "Jeigan" type character who starts out as a pre-promote. Swords, lances, and magic would be an interesting combination for a character. If light and dark magic are a thing, then maybe they could have Byleth wielding dark magic - that would be cool in my opinion, and it would fit in very well with the etymology of his name. We haven't had a main character wielding Dark Magic that I'm aware of.
  13. What happens to Thria at the end of the game?

    Giese, the Twins, and Niime were characters whose stories in Binding Blade were intimately tied to the stories of their parents, which were being told in Blazing Sword. Orun has no similar Narrative thread to connect him to the events of Blazing Sword other than the fact that he's Hector's half brother. Putting him in Blazing Sword would have taken narrative focus away from Hector, which would have been a bad idea from IS's perspective.
  14. What happens to Thria at the end of the game?

    Not necessarily; Orun may be Hector's half-brother, but he's a minor character as far as the plot goes. From a narrative standpoint, Blazing Sword is really more of a side story to Binding Blade anyway; it's unlikely that characters like Orun would have had much relevance to Blazing Sword's plot. Blazing Sword was a separate and mostly self-contained series of events that involved a relatively small number of people, and that didn't really affect the entire continent as a whole other than the death of Hector's brother and the elevation of Eliwood and Hector as major political figures in the Lycian League.
  15. I'm neither miffed, nor being passive aggressive - I was just stating what I believe to be the correct answer to the OP's question.
