  1. So for the uninitiated Berwick Saga is the second game from Shouzou Kaga, creator of the original 5 Fire Emblem titles, after leaving Intelligent Systems. It's set in the same world as TearRing Saga, although the two games are not directly related by plot. It borrows a lot of elements commonly found in the Fire Emblem series, such as permadeath and weapon durability, while adding several unique and interesting twists on the old formula. Battles are no longer carried out phase by phase, but instead on a turn by turn basis for example. Many skills and ideas found in modern Fire Emblem titles can be traced back to this title as well. This playthrough is based on this English patch created by Aethin, and I definitely recommend you check it out and support the project if you can. I'm all of two maps in and it's been an absolute blast so far. Anyways, Part 1 In this part, we're first introduced to our cast of characters and get our first taste of the crazy new battle system this game has to offer. I can't help but be heavily reminded of FE4 with how this game sets up the story. Nothing too crazy happens here story-wise, but I'm already finding a lot of things to like with this game. The art doesn't look that impressive in screenshots, but seeing the game in motion I have to say that the graphics are incredibly smooth and full of life. The soundtrack is already starting to grow on me too (that boss music!). Anyone who has played TearRing Saga and enjoyed it would probably say that this game has some big shoes to fill, but so far I have to say things are looking good.
  2. RIP David Bowie

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-35278872 first Lemmy now Bowie. This sucks :(
  3. It was due at 9:00 P.M. today. I turned it in at 9:00 P.M. today. ...Still not sure why you people should care actually, just thought I'd share this with you
  4. Survivor: Serenes Forest

    A little backstory here: On this Spyro fansite I once created this Survivor style general trivia challenge game. Didn't host but it was still really fun to do. Even after I left that site, I loved the idea. Here's my proposal: This game is based on the honor system. That means that looking up answers is not incouraged, but no one could really stop you. The game operates on Days. There will be 12 or so Days where a member from the losing team is eliminated until the merge occurs. Then it shall be one large team with individual invincibility. People will be voted off each day, except for possibly one or so non-elimination days. Contestants will send their votes by PM to the hosts. This of course means any hosts will probably need a good inbox or something. Looking to have around 10-12 competitors. Also would like to have a host, but it'd probably be a pretty difficult job. They'd get all the credit if this goes well. I know I've had this go well before, but it was never thanks to me. Teams will be randomized I guess. Contestants: 1. Franziska 2. Power Master 3. Draco 4. Glaceon Mage 5. Icemario 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11 and 12 to be added if space is needed. Host: Baldrick Teams: Team *host choice #1*: Team *host choice #2*:
  5. I did a spriting

    Well, I did exactly as the title says. Please, tell me all of the horrendous, terrible things I did wrong, (preferably also tell me how to fix it), and offer general advice about things that I tend to not think of at all, such as color scheme. If you want, that is. I guess I'll show you guys what I have. Please note that I am very bad at this, and just think it's fun to do, that's why I have these in the first place. Also, there's only one. C: I really only do these from boredom, and with school and all being here, that probably will happen less. Because I was inspired by the Radiant Collection, I also made Takumi in GBA form. Well, tried at least. I think if I ever manage to fix it, I'll definitely be doing more Fates characters. I'm still working on it, but it may take a while, as shading is a thing that I'm bad at. Obviously.
  6. Japan got an event for a shiny Jirachi (because Bank blocked the actual legit shiny Jirachis from prior games) and through the magic of trolling around GameFAQs I managed to get one. That said someone on SF prolly got one before me. shiny Celebi event plz Nintendo. <:3
  7. So after reading the character descriptions from this LP (near the bottom of the page), I decided to try my hand at doing something similar myself, only with FE13... because I was bored and had nothing better to do. I was only bored enough to do descriptions for the Gen Wunderkins, apparently. I probably think the descriptions are more witty and clever than they actually are (and some of them I don't even get anymore), but that's how it goes when you have an overinflated ego (which is why I made these thread because that ego was cruising for a bruising). Also Euklyd helped me with 99% of these, so props. Anyways, keep in mind that the descriptions are not entirely serious (although I'd like to think that they're fairly accurate :3), so don't feel offended if your favorite character didn't get the optimal description (and more importantly, don't spend pages arguing about it here). That being said, if there's anything you feel that can be changed or improved (or you just don't get a description, feel free to mention it (or just leave your general comments, that works too). Just as long as you're not expecting a quality answer, of course! CHROM: The heroic, well-respected lord. Bit of a hypocrite. AVATAR: The charismatic, amnesiac tactician. Bit of a player.

  8. X/Y WiFi Tourney

    So I had an idea about X/Y and Serenes Forest right now. Perhaps we can have a battle tourney here, and see who the top battler of the forest can be. It'll be a fun experience, I'm sure, and perhaps this can net us all more friendships and Friend Safari mons? Rules: 1. Standard Doubles rules of the Battle Maison will apply here. 2. Best two out of three. 3. If you can't play in X/Y, battle your opponent on Showdown. 4. Full teams of six, but four per match. 5. Good luck and have fun. First round:
  9. God fucking damn it I hate this game. So the only natural thing to do is make a playthrough of it. Obviously. LHM to start idk maybe I'll do HHM if I hate my life. Pick good characters for me. Serra and Florina will be used and transcend christ. Raven, Kent and Erk will die. Pent will not be used and his sexy wife will be used. This is guaranteed. Everyone else is fair game. It feels so weird not doing a tag-team [spoiler= Prologue because I'm too lazy to do Chapter 1] Gross no tutorials plz lets do eet true fact: chapter titles are a stable of screenshot lps Am I dead? Is this heaven. o Oh god. It feels so weird not hating you anymore. What am I doing to myself. b-but I am mute, so sorry. what's dat I am useless in every way, my apologies. Gosh that first text scroll was painful Move #1 Good start. *sigh* Wasting vulneraries is a stable of the prologue. probably God damn it. Wasting more resources. FINISH HIM get rekd baby steps to godhood Please stop watching me sleep. Ponytails are always welcome. We're screwed.

    Because we need a fandom thread that doesn't degrade into claim-based arguments.

  12. I think so, that way we wouldn't have all these useless new topics. It's the fad topics all over again. ENOUGH.
  13. I have no idea what everyone's obsession is with this soda. I find it disgusting.
  14. Just thought I'd let you know.
  15. Shantae

    Shantae is a nice old platformer game developed by WayForward, the same who've created Mighty Switch Force, Ducktales Remastered, the Adventure Time game for DS/3DS, Contra 4 and a few other good games, it's published by Capcom. Released Titles Shantae, it's first release was on the Gameboy Colour back in 2002, it's old, but not that old, the game became an obscure gem due to its release coming a year after that of the Game Boy Advance, however it did show support as playing the game with a GBA adds "enhancements" to the game. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6b5W754z02Q Shantae: Risky's Revenge is the second game in the series, the game released on the Nintendo DSi's DSiWare shop (also part of the Nintendo eShop and on Steam Greenlight) in 2010/11 (depending) a whole 8/9 years after the original, now I'll be honest, I have still yet to play this one, so I'll just leave a review here. Besides the two games above that have been released, we also have 2 other games coming soon titled Shantae and the Pirate's Curse coming on the 3DS eShop this fall, and Shantae: Half-Genie Hero which is going to be a multi-platform title, which is currently running a kickstarter here. I would be super glad if you would donate to the Kickstarter if you are interested, not because I asked. If you ask me it was an unfortunate time to start the kickstarter as it's being overshadowed by not-megaman. (Half)Genies! Pirates! Zombies! Monkeys! how many other games do you know that have these in?

  19. What would you change?

    I think we can all agree that FE13 was somewhat enjoyable, but there's always something that someone would've done differently if they had the know how. I for one would make the subtitles different within confessions for when you have the Japanese voice set, because anyone who understands Japanese here would know that what they're saying isn't what the subtitles say. i would also change the spotpass characters to actually look like who they're suppose to look, and I would probably change the multilayer around a bit. There are some things I can let sly, like voice acting, but I wouldn't be mad if the game was fully voiced, but then you have the problem with the avatar's name, but that can always be worked around like Persona.
  20. [FE13] Let'sa Go

    Drafting: 1. This draft is for 4 players. 2. Chrom, Avatar, Frederick, Olivia, and Lucina are free for all to use. 3. The game will be played on Hard Mode Classic. 4.

  21. So then Stahl vs. Sully. Arguably the two best non-MU units in the game. Naturally this debate will be happening according to the tier lists rules. I could post them but they should be well known by now so there isn't much reason. They both boast a massive amount of good qualities and few weaknesses. Stahl naturally has more strength and defense while Sully has more speed. This means the debate will basically come down to which stats are better... Seeing as how they're practically identical otherwise. First off we should naturally figure out how they do early-game as it's the easiest to predict and hardest part. Sully has one chapter on Stahl. That chapter is fairly unimportant and extremely quick but it's still a chance for Sully to contribute when Stahl can't and get EXP that Stahl can't. So let's look at Chapter 1. This chapter is pretty easy thanks to you probably not using more than 2 pairs and your team being able to just stand on forts and destroy the map in 3-5 turns. Sully can double the Fighters with Chrom at base but so can Frederick and Avatar. Avatar and Frederick both take more and do more damage at this point but she can still take Chrom and hang out on the fort. I think a level in this map should be more than fair depending on how you play. So we go into Chapter 2 with them looking something like this... (I procced Sully in her >50% growths) UNIT CLASS LV.XP HP ST MG SK SP LK DF RS WEAPON RANK SULLY CAV 3.00 21 8 1 9 9 7 7 2 D LANCES STAHL CAV 2.00 22 8 0 7 6 5 8 1 D SWORDS So the only really pronounced lead is Sully's +3 speed. That's not that big though because if Sully wants to double then she has to take Chrom which leaves her durability kind of lacking, for example Fighters (17 attack) will be doing about 10 damage, Soldiers (15 attack) will be doing roughly 8, and Mercenaries (14 attack) do about 7. That means that every enemy on the map 3HKOes her when she's doubling while Stahl manages to not be 3HKOed by Mercs but that's before pair up. So if you want her to have a good EP she isn't going to be doubling. Making her speed lead irrelevant. Sully's best options are Vaike and Frederick... same as Stahl. They both die at about the same rates depending on which character they take. I'll say they can each take 2 levels here without too much pain. That's a good amount and reflects their contributions (basically best non-Frederick units). They both basically 2-3HKO. So in Chapter 3 Stahl has, +2 hp (95% growth... I'm just giving too him) +1 strength, skill, speed, luck, defense. Sully has, +1 hp, strength, skill, speed, luck, defense. The Chapter is interesting. Sully can take the javelin from Kellam for 1-2 range but it makes her attack rather bad (12+ attack depending on who she pairs with and enemies have 3-4 defense (if not a Knight) and 9 defense (if a Knight)) So she does 8-9 damage a hit with the javelin per hit, this can rise to 12-13 with Vaike or Frederick not a KO, if she takes Chrom to double she needs dual-attacks to 1-round. On top of this that javelin has 25 uses for 3-4 chapters so she can't really overuse it for constant counters. This map is great for working Stahl's lance rank so he'll take the Bronze Lance while Sully takes the Iron Lance. Again they do just about the same 2HKOing adn getting 3-6HKOed (depending on Vaike or Frederick). They both get a level and Stahl probably gets to D lances. That basically sums them up through P1 and C4, Sully can double with Chrom but her durability isn't good enough for this in most circumstances for her to keep up with Stahl while Stahl's durability and attack begin to get better than Sully's. Chapter 5~ is when Sully typically starts to reliably double most enemies with Vaike or Frederick. But at this time Stahl's durability becomes pretty concrete (taking 1-3 damage from all) and Stahl can actually double several enemies with Lon'qu. The comparison for the next couple of chapters basically relies on whether Sully is taking Frederick (her win), Vaike (pretty even but with Stahl taking a slight edge imo) or Chrom (easily Stahl). The problem with Sully taking Fred though is she takes him from Sumia, who really likes those boosts. She can use Frederick almost as well though so the cost isn't that large. As time goes on Stahl gets Cordelia to make him better against Mages (though he's still pretty bad) and he's still even (Frederick) to better (other). To make him a bit better for mid-game. I'd say Late-game is fairly even or in Stahl's favor because Sully can go Wyvern for an overall improvement (although her axe rank starts bad, nothing Discipline can't fix). While his superior defense and strength growths allow Stahl to stay even or ahead on strength and defense while not being weak to bows, which are pretty numerous in those chapters. They're both great but Hungry Guy in Green > Red-Haired Transgender story. I can go into more detail soon but I want to see what you have to say.
  22. The Fire Emblem series has it's powerful moments, are there any points within games that just hit you right in the feels? One right of the top of my head, and I mention it because it's really recent, and spoilers because Awakening spoilers Or FE4 at the end of Generation 1 FE7 Those are some just of the top of my head, what about you?
