Team FE Presents Extra Life: Day 3, Nov. 17 11a – 11p PT

I’m back, with an update on Team FE’s third day of exciting Fire Emblem themed shenanigans! We’re set to go live in about 20 hours, and if you thought Day 2 was a doozy, you’re not ready for Day 3. Before that though, an update on our Day 2 success, and a reminder of what we’re doing this all for.

Team FE was able to raise $3,245 in our first two 12-hour days, which is absolutely amazing! Considering that last year, our single day, 24-hour straight event brought in roughly that same amount ($3,540), things have been going quite smoothly and in my opinion, just as successfully. We’ve still got a lot planned, and with the 24th being our last day, we have to make the second half of this event a memorable one.

Where last year’s focus was on speedgaming, this year has highlighted a metric ton of voice talent in the franchise, bringing in six voice actors on-stream during our event so far, not counting the ones joining us tomorrow, or others that offered up autographs for signing merchandise. Speaking of…our schedule for November 17th foresees special appearances by a high range of talented voice actors in the Fire Emblem franchise, including:

Aside from our voice actors, you can see games played by familiar faces, including Kirbymastah, Mekkah, Gwimpage, Lord Raven (not our Staff’s Raven) and a strange amalgamation of Team FE members that may even include yours truly. for a rousing game of Quiplash. Finally, we’ll be highlighting several artists during some interview sessions, such as reappearances from SF’s ciarre and Reddit’s Tecchen, as well as a new contributor to our event, 24914. If you miss a chance to interact with anyone but want to score a second chance, either visit our forums, hang out at the subreddits, or for the voice actors, check out their Twitter profiles and Unlocked* profiles. With so many big names coming aboard, you won’t want to miss tomorrow!

As far as Unlocked goes, it’s an iOS app (in Beta for Android devices as I type this), which allows fans to engage in conversation with voice actors, artists, cosplayers and other big names within the anime and gaming community, via livestreaming through mobile devices (sort of like Facebook Live). David Vincent is one of the creative minds behind this app’s existence, and it’s pretty fun to use. I’ve had my fair share of conversations with voice actors that joined us this year, and it’s a great way to support talented contributors to the things that make games as enjoyable as they are.

Fire Emblem Highlighted Thrice in Behind The Voice Acting 2016 Awards

Behind The Voice Actors is a site that not only collects data on the various voice actors for movies and TV shows, but also for video games. If you’re unfamiliar with their site, it’s a pretty informative spot to check out and it’s quite easy to navigate, very much like IMDB and its movie/actor database.

Fans of the more recent Fire Emblem games will be very aware of the presence of voice acting. Awakening was a pretty ground-breaking game in the Fire Emblem franchise for this, as it gave virtually every character some sort of voice direction (whereas Path of Radiance and Radiant Dawn only featured some characters, and we won’t look at the Smash Bros games as official Fire Emblem games). This past year, Fire Emblem Fates really pushed the envelope, giving fans some great voice acting along with a pretty popular trio of games to boot.

  

 

The crux of this is to highlight the awards won by several voice actors and actresses in the 6th Annual BTVA 2016 Awards, which this year, included many voices that worked on the games winning awards for other roles, as well as three winners that slated their spots on the top for their Fire Emblem voicework! Of note, Rena Strober, Matthew Mercer and Cam Clarke won in their respective categories, for their performances of Corrin (male), Shigure and Azura in Fire Emblem Fates!

 

Show your support by paying a visit to their respective Twitter accounts (Strober, MercerClarke) and letting them know how you feel. Rena is already a regular on Serenes Forest, but it never hurts to say hello!

Recently, an interview with Azura voice actress Rena Strober surfaced, highlighting some struggles the voice acting community faces and the internet has even thrown out criticism towards her talents. Our site reacted and users on our forums started up a Fan-Support thread.
