Re: The Chit-Chat Thread

Gd Damn Zeus Buscuits! I spent the better part of today looking forward to reading a webcomic today, thinking it'd be perfect, and a game I was playing got me in the mood for its brand of humor. Read a little before bed, and maybe it'll give me something uplifting to think about in bed so I sleep better. Let me take a break from that game for a bit so I can savor it for a longer period. Hey, I was thinking of drawing tomorrow, maybe it'll help inspire me...

...the website's undergoing maintainance, and will be down for who-knows-how-long...sigh...guess its back to grinding in RPGs for me...

My biggest fear for this game is that it won't do enough to update Gaiden-- with the confirmation of full voice acting and anime cutscenes, it's hopeful that the main story has been updated. But the possibility of supports, re-designed maps that don't compete with Awakening in terms of utter blandness, and other such improvements are still up in the air.

I'm pretty sure they outright confirmed all of that. I don't think they even explicitly called it a remake. Just that it was "inspired" by Fire Emblem Gaiden.

Re: Fire Emblem Echoes

The class tree is the part I'm looking forward to most, besides the "free-roaming" bit. I liked upgrading and changing my guy's classes. Really let me play around with different strategies & whatnot, though I guess more modern FE games caught up with it, to an extent, but actually having some flexibility in the stages you use and having areas where you could grind besides just a simple colluseum really added to that. It went from a straight, level-to-level progression, to "do I go to the next major area? Or do I see what's in this cave?" When you factor in the perma-death, you got the kinda feeling a lot of rogue-lites like to play around with these days, I feel.

...So yeah, more of that, plz.

Re: Fire Emblem Warriors

CanisWolfred

He still makes a fair point, the y clearly made a lot of comprimises in order to make it work, and that was going from Wii U to New 3DS. I have a strong feeling the New 3DS version will be pretty gimped overall. I just can't see it working that well...

I'm actually one of the few that hasn't played Star Fox 64. I played the Star Fox Zero demo and didn't really think the series was for me.

That's...no. You don't...next you'll tell me that "Sonic isn't for me" because you played a demo of Sonic '06 for 5 minutes. Star Fox 64 is the epitome of the Rail-Shooter genre. Star Fox Zero is a reboot on the level of RoboCop 2014 - retelling the same old story (for the third time - Star Fox 64 was already a soft reboot of the original Star Fox game), while missing nearly every point it made, and shoehorning in elements that just don't work within the original framework (and I'm not even sure if they ever would've worked on their own).

If you only have classic 3DS to buy this game, please don't buy this game. For your sake. srsly

That being said, Nintendo REALLY wants me to buy the Switch this year. I think the only thing missing from a first party perspective is a Rhythm Heaven game or Kirby Air Ride 2, and I'd be convinced they were doing this for ME specifically.

Honestly, I was saying something similar when I was looking at the reveal stuff. They're doing a much better job of listening to their fanbase, at least!

...except replace Kirby Air Ride with F-Zero. And I'm nowhere near as big a fan of Rhythm Heaven as you are, so swap that with a proper Chibi-Robo entry, and I would probably trip over myself trying to a reserve a Switch.

Re: Fire Emblem Echoes

I think I'd be worried if Nintendo relagated a new Fire Emblem game to only the eShop, especially after the crap they pulled with Fire Emblem Fates. I'm pretty sure the $100+ for the full content of Revelations that plenty of fans were apparently willing to put down was more than enough to help land a sequel...

Re: Fire Emblem Echoes

CanisWolfred

@jump I was kind of joking (or attempting a joke), since it seems that this thread pre-empted the (inevitable?) NLife article. Which is still fine. I get all of my news from other sources, regardless.

The game sounds fun, though. I loved Fire Emblem Gaiden, even when I was really down on the franchise. It has a different feel than the other games, and I'm looking forward to seeing what they do with it. As in: I wanna make sure they're not just drumming up nostalgia in order to sell a generic dungeon-crawler, just like those lousy Shining Force games on the PSP.

Re: Is anybody finishing their Wii U backlog of games before moving on?

CanisWolfred

Yeah, I'm never gonna finish off my backlog (because that would be a living nightmare for me), but I'm in no rush due to the sheer girth of it. I'll spend some time lowering the intake so I can appreciate the literal wall of possibilities I've built up for myself.

You know, I'm surprised how often I encounter this question.

I'm also surprised that two people on forums I frequent care this much about anyone other than Misty or May. Did Dawn even have any unique traits that weren't lifted from the prior two? I certainly couldn't tell you...because I was 14 by the time D& P was out, and I had long moved on from the Pokemon anime...

To be fair, this will probably be much better at launch than V was anyway. :V

Pfffft...it'll probably have more have more bang for your buck than the current version. I swear, the only reason it's not a Freemium game is because then they'd have to release new content on a regular basis...

So… the 3DS got Super Street Fighter IV as a launch title, and the Switch, a significantly more powerful console, gets a somewhat improved port of Street Fighter II… (likely to not be released in time for launch)

I would have been mildly excited about Street Fighter V hitting the system, but this just feels like an insult. This looks like an eShop title masquerading as a AAA retail game. =/

...Is it actually a retail game, though?

I didn't see a thread about this,maybe it belongs in Switch VC?

King of Fighters 98 has been confirmed by the publisher Hamster Corp to be arriving worldwide in March with 4 more Neo Geo games (Waku Waku 7, Shock Troopers, World Heroes Perfect and Metal Slug 3) to follow and even more to come.

https://www.engadget.com/2017/01/13/nintendo-switch-neo-geo-g...

One of my big wishes for Wii U was to see the VC Arcade expand and evolve but it obviously never happened,so this is great news.If the Switch receives anywhere near the support the other console have had I'll be a happy man.Maybe if it's a success it'll convince Sega to bring some their own classics to Switch.

FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF- that's all of them. All of better (if not best) Neo Geo games that I never got for the VC (granted, 1 or 2 never arrived on it, but hey). This is gonna be a bit of a tough wait now, but damn...if you love fighting games and have never experienced KOF'98, I highly recommend giving it a go.

Re: Disgaea 5 Complete

CanisWolfred

@Ralizah Slight correction: Disgaea 2 have minor but enjoyable connections, and Disgaea D2 is an out & out sequel to Disgaea 1. But otherwise, yes, the only thing you're missing out on by not playing the prequels (outside of each individual story, which I found amusing enough to get 1-4, though I never touched 4) is not being burnt out on the admittedly very grindy gameplay.
