Hi. I live somewhere in the USA. I like Pokemon, Nintendo, Minecraft, Marvel, immortality, Star Wars, history, and I'm interested in the future/new technologies (not that I can build anything of course. Just want holograms, a cure to death.) I don't have any talents,but I read a lot, and ramble.

Plasma_3 commented on New Fire Emblem on 3DS Takes Shape as Two Sepa...:

@PlywoodStick I wasn't attempting to refer to the tone, if I came across as such, I apologize.
I've only played Awakening, and have only just started to go back and play previous Fire Emblem titles, so I have little to no knowledge on this subject. However, I was attempting to refer to the style of gameplay, and the difficulty, rather than the type of story. If you were interpreting the splitting of the game being for different age ranges when I said target audience, I apologize again. I was trying to refer to the players experience with Fire Emblem, not age.
On the off chance that you were interpreting the story lines themselves, again, I cannot comment. However, it would admittedly appear to be shallow reasoning, if they split the games entirely to separate the tone.
Edit:Ok, here is a translation [not done by me, I'll link to the site] that supposedly comes from the official Japanese Site, followed by the authors interpretation. "Fire Emblem if Hoshido

A story focusing on protecting your Hoshidan birthplace and royal relatives from the Nohrian invasion. Outside the main story, you can earn experience and funds and freely develop your characters.

Fire Emblem if Nohr

In this story, you work with the Nohrian royal family to battle the internal conflicts within Nohr itself. Compared to Hoshido, the difficulty is higher, with limited opportunities to earn experience and funds.

Interestingly, Nintendo wasn’t lying when they said the Nohr path would be harder. It seems as if there will be a world map or some other facility in the Hoshido path that lets you level up characters outside of the story like in Awakening, The Sacred Stones and Gaiden. But not in the Nohr path."

I'm unsure about how reliable this site is, and I cannot read Japanese, so I apologize if it happens to be inaccurate.

I'm also unsure if the third campaign is a true ending, from what I'm aware, the current guesses [or possibly facts, I cannot tell] have it as being more like a third hidden option where you choose neither side. However, I do see how it could actually be referring to an event in the future, after the main campaign has been completed. It is rather vague though, so I personally haven't attempted to give it much interpretation.
Edit: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=me-9kWzxKoo . Again, I don't know the accuracy, as this is a fan sub, but according to it, the third DLC has you siding with neither country. Also, it does say, according to it, that the two games have tackle different story lines, to some extent, with the Hoshida repelling an invasion by Nohir, and the Nohir focusing on internal conflict?
And somehow, it appears they are completing some variant of your response to JaxonH, admittedly with one massive difference-the price.

Plasma_3 commented on New Fire Emblem on 3DS Takes Shape as Two Sepa...:

As various other users have stated, including @TingLz, @FireEmblem, and I believe @Falchion, there is various information not given in this article, as it doesn't directly pertain to the above article. It would appear the games are essentially completely different, each with a different target audience [Fans of the older games and fans of Awakening]. While the world and time might be the same, the story lines would appear to be completely different after chapter 6.
Now, I cannot say that I'm ecstatic, or even remotely pleased with the removal of what was appearing to be toted as the biggest or first choice in-game that was setting it apart from Awakening and previous games, where, for the most part/in most of the games [from what I can tell] your choices didn't really impact the story, to retail. However, personally I hope that we in the U.S. [and the rest of the Americas/NA] and Europe may get at least both versions on one game card, in lieu of the two different versions, and at the standard, or slightly above standard price [so I'm hoping for something in the $39.99-49.99 range], which would still leave them the 3rd path for DLC.
Now, I might be misreading the situation/responses, but I feel the allusions to this being compared to Pokemon is off. I feel that the differences between the versions are vastly different then what Pokemon offers us. However, this appears to be what is causing some anger. To be honest, I don't understand this. It appears that we are getting just about two fully fleshed out games, with vastly different story lines. A parallel is, it would appear the units we can recruit will differ between versions [I'm assuming, if that is true,some will be recruit able in both versions]
It would appear that the Hoshido version is for the fans whom loved Awakening, while the Nohr version is for the fans whom felt Awakening was to easy, or preferred previous installments to Awakening. I'd say this is them trying their best to not anger fans. Now, however, it would appear to be evident that both versions are capable of fitting upon a single game card, by the special edition version. However, could it be possible that the special edition version somehow contains more space, and is more expensive to produce? If that is the case, I'd be more accepting of this move-especially since it would appear to be platform specific/do to the limitations of the game cards for a specific system, which I'd have to say would be unlikely to occur in the future-making this a one time occurrence.
There are various sources which state information better than I am, and people in this comment section. I shall try to add sources for further reading and such, and to amend this post so it makes more sense [from a reading perspective, as I know some of my sentences might make little sense, and I apologize for any awkard wording, and incompetent arguments I may have made]

Plasma_3 commented on Splatoon Updates Give More Insight Into Stages...:

I hope that you can earn the in-game currency through the single player campaign as well, as I have a history of not being able to take advantage of online multiplayer, due to the router at my house. I can play Pokemon, but other than that, almost everysingle time in Luigi's Mansion, Mario Kart, or Smash, I get an error code.

Plasma_3 commented on Poll: As amiibo Expands and Evolves, Which Fea...:

My top wants are Lucina, Robin, and Ike. If my budget allows, I'll consider picking up the Reprint of Marth, and maybe Ness/A Kirby Character. I really want them to do a whole lot more on both platforms, although I really think the Fire Emblem Characters in Code Name: Steam is a great start.

Plasma_3 commented on Feature: Time to Vote For Your Game of the Yea...:

@Shadowkiller97 @Peach64
I was honestly surprised as well. I forgot the dearth of games that came out this year for the 3DS. I mean, I guess I can't complain, as I already had to cut some of this years out for budget related reasons, and I still want to pick up some titles I missed, but I really hope that 2015 will try to pick up some of the slack of this year.
Anyway, Wii U wise, it was really hard, because while I have a Wii U, I haven't been able to pick up a single title for it. I just went with which I've enjoyed seeing in a Let's Play the most.
And then for the 3DS, it was a choice between Pokemon and Smash. It was a tough decision [made harder by the fact I haven't picked up ORAS, and that I avoided most of the spoilers other than the Corocoro scans/official reveals and the review here, and the unfortunate Pokejungle review, that actually gave me a pretty big spoiler, despite being like 4 words] but I went out with my hopes, and said ORAS.

Plasma_3 commented on Nintendo Revenue Claims on Mario Kart 8 YouTub...:

From some of what I have heard, it is YouTube, not Nintendo doing the claims right now. I have heard that it is using some Algorithm that it uses to find copyrighted music or something along those lines.
If that is all true......

Plasma_3 commented on Review: Kirby & The Amazing Mirror (Wii U eShop):

I was going to get this, saw it was on the 3DS as well, and then saw that apparently the review says the game isn't that good, and the 3DS was for ambassadors. I still wish I had got my 3DS in time for that program.

Plasma_3 commented on Poll: Have Your Say on Nintendo Direct Bonanza...:

I have enjoyed all of the Nintendo Directs I have seen, and really enjoyed the most recent two.
The only thing I didn't like, other than perhaps my taste in games, would have been the 'Please Understand' Line.
Who dislikes the Nintendo Directs?
