Re: Favorite 3DS RPG? (so far)

pashaveliki

@steamhare read the article. I went into it in the "Zelda is an Action Adventure, duh!" camp, and frankly... his arguments are sound.
He changed my mind... the man is a games scholar.
Besides. Genre distinctions are crap, especially now days when the most popular brofest shooters involve grinding for xp and loot...

Re: Fire Emblem Kakusei (Awakening)

pashaveliki

@DiscotewI personally went download this time and will probably pick the physical cart up one day used or whatnot just for the collection.

For the here and now, having the Fire Emblem in the 3DS at all times is kinda awesome what with spotpass and DLC.

You take that back >:0

You can't take the truth back.

Priceless ^__^
I think a Fire Emblem vs. Animal Crossing flamewar would be as hilarious as it would be unlikely.

I personally have always wanted to take a Silver Lance to Tom Nook's gut...

Who's with me?

Re: The Fire Emblem timeline?

pashaveliki

Akaneian prehistory and the Halidom of Ylisse are, for our purposes, "Fire Emblem Prime" and the other series are alternate universes. Not alternate timelines, but rather completely separate existences.

The Outlands Gate is alot like the plot device of the show "Sliders". A vortex that grants access to the alternate universes... not sure why Hubba has access to the gate and no one else, nor do I really grok what the cards are about, but a) i am not done with the game and b) only two map packs have come out so it might (?) be explained.

But in all reality, it is a non-plot related shoehorn to explain away optional DLC map packs that press the fan service button, and as cynical as i would like to say it is... I totally enjoyed watching Alm die... ^__^

Re: The Fire Emblem timeline?

pashaveliki

Some games are connected and some aren't.
Here's the breakdown:

Akaneian saga
Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon (DS), Fire Emblem: Heroes of Light and Shadow (DS, fantranslated)... these are the Marth games that are the background mythology for Fire Emblem: Awakening. Both of the DS games are remakes and reremakes of older NES and SNES games.
Fire Emblem: Gaiden (NES, fantranslated) is in this world, but has no bearing on the lore.

Jugdral saga
Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War, Fire Emblem: Thracia 776 (both SNES, both fantranslated)

Elibe Saga
Fire Emblem (USA, GBA), Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade (GBA, fantranslated)... this is Roy's series

Fire Emblem: Sacred Stones
Totally standalone.

Telius saga
Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance (Gamecube), Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn (Wii)... this is the Ike series.

Hope that helps!

So those who have it, would you need to play the other games to understand the story and whatnot in this game?

not at all. There are some really awesome fan-service moments, but nothing that is necessary. The Akaneian saga (Marth games) are the mythology of the world of Awakening, but you can play it perfectly well without knowing about it.
The DLC maps and random unit drops are especially awesome fan service.

@Emaan Buy a reeking box and use it Southtown (the prologue area). That will make weak enough enemies for your under-leveled people to have a chance. Keep a healer nearby though.

That is probably one of the best tips I've ever read on any forum ever.
Cheers ^__^

Re: Any of you ever thought of going retro-only?

pashaveliki

Honestly, with my lifestyle outside of handhelds and Civ V or the random Humble Bundle, I am retro only.
My 360, PS3 and Wii are in storage back in the states, and considering I live in Central Asia and do not own a TV, a Wii U just isn't in the cards.
So i play anything my computer can run and anything i can download onto handhelds (my 3DS and iPhone), but for the most part I spend most of my time gaming int he past.

I am just not that big a fan of the grey/brown space marine/special forces fist/third person shoot-a-thon that modern gaming has devolved into...

Re: Fire Emblem Kakusei (Awakening)

pashaveliki

@Emaan typically Fire Emblem games give you plenty of each class type to be able to just let someone die.
The games never put you in a position where all your archers are dead and you need an archer to beat the game.
That said, yes, i have let people die in Fire Emblem games, but it all boils down to two points: how much time have I invested in their development and do I like them?
If I dislike someone's personality and find their role in the team redundant... well.... they prolly should take out some life insurance before taking the field.
Case in point: Fiona (?) from Radiant Dawn. I had PLENTY of cavaliers of all types, well leveled with cool personalities and whatnot. And then there was that girl. An underleveled cavalier with an underdeveloped personality... I used her to draw some high level wyvern lords into a trap for my archers. Unfortunately Fiona the Dragon Bait was devoured before my archers finished the job.
C'est la vie.

Re: What do you want the next Sonic game to be like?

pashaveliki

Honestly... the character needs to lie fallow for a while.
I am sick and tired of each Sonic game being touted by Sega as the game where they "bring Sonic back to what the fans love!" only to miss the mark...

Seriously, just let him rest for a good bit, or seriously rethink the character.

Re: Metroid games

pashaveliki

Super Metroid and Prime 1.

Super Metroid is the pinnacle of 2D Metroid, and Prime 1 is nearly perfect when it comes to recreating the Metroid formula for power-up based exploration in 3D... Prime 2 and 3 simply got progressively farther and farther from the exploration along the way to FPS imho.
Plus something is just off in Prime 2. It remains the only Metroid game (outside of Other M) that I just never could seem to finish...
