Before anyone kneejerk reports this, please read his blog — He's talking about having develolped a 3DS app that will allow you to do all your programming via PC, import it to the app via QR code or SD card, and then instantly run it on your 3DS, basically a Petit Computer-style app without the difficulty of having to program via the 3DS itself. He is not talking about hacking, flashcarts, or piracy. Please respect him and his intent (and our Community Rules) and keep yourselves from doing the same. Thanks in advance!

that said, @hugo: since this is going to be for the 3DS, i'd assume people would be able to take advantage of the 3D effect somehow? I'm not sure how well such a thing would sell in the eShop, but Petit Computer has a very devoted following. you'd be a hero to the little guy looking to poke around his 3D-capable hardware :3

@CrimsonFire13: We have one for signatures and another for user avatars because those things can be changed immediately if someone points out something off or hurtful about them. Usernames you're stuck with for at least 90 days, though, so we'd prefer everyone went ahead and kept their opinions to themselves on this topic. That's why you haven't seen a thread of this sort around anywhere, I'd guess. Sorry!

How is that not relevant to the article at hand? Pachter's posting what he thinks, other people get to post what they think. Or, at least, they do until I see you start diving down people's throats demanding proof for the nth time when it's not necessary at all, and I'm reminded that we have this same general discussion every single time Pachter opens his mouth. If this hits the main site (and i hope like hell it doesn't, I'm so sick of Pachter articles and the associated drama i could spit), please remember that your fellow users are (largely) not journalists. They're (mostly) not professionals in the field of video games specifically. They're people here to have fun and talk about video games, to engage in casual discussions, and we invite them to do so (provided the Community Rules are followed, of course).

Well, at least with all the EXPonential growth, you'll be able to LEVEL the competition! XD

Funny how everyone points out the potential incest situations, but I'm surprised nobody said anything about the beastiality going on (aka Panne and to a lesser extent Nowi, plus both their children). Actually I'd like to know how exactly genetics work in the FE universe, seeing as apparently a Taguel or Manakete female can marry a human male, yet the offspring is a Taguel/Manakete and not a hybrid. Perhaps Taguel and Manakete genes are dominant? I'm obviously thinking too much into this, but genetics an interesting subject to me.

idk about the other games, but here they don't seem to be really animals so much as they are people with extra parts here and there and a full-on beast form in battle.

That said, I'd wonder how far down you can dilute the Taguel/Manakete blood before they no longer showed characteristics of non-humanity out of beast form and were no longer able to use a stone to transform in battle. The gene could be dominant, but it's a fifty-fifty chance when one of the parents is (an assumedly pure-blooded) Taguel or Manakete. If the kid gets married to a human with no Taguel or Manakete in their bloodline, that chance drops to one in four, y'know? :3

@Happy_Mask: sorry, I've always seen 'trash talk' used to rattle or jar the other guy(s) mentally, to make them nervous or overly angry thinking about the nasty things that've been said to or about them, and thus maybe screw them up during a game of whatever is being played. it's not 'nice' in any way, shape, or form, and it's not a foundation upon which to build a healthy community of any sort IMO.

that said, regarding cousin marriages in this game — royalty did it all the time back in the day. creepy, but true.

@Ideal_Hero: I was my own mage up until I picked up Tharja and Henry; I just didn't use them a lot in the early chapters. I'm on Normal and I'm not playing Classic, so that might have something to do with why I was able to survive without him, lol. My husband is using Miriel, though, I think he said he's pairing Gregor with her. :3

@WingedFish: I love love love Tharja~ I just hitched her to Lon'qu. Definitely excited to pick up her kid, but I've been working on getting all the parents I use regularly paired off before I move on to picking up their kids. Henry and Olivia definitely have some fun conversations together, i think they'll be married by tonight. Maribelle and Donnel were kinda predictable, and Nowi and Libra make an odd couple for sure. I don't really think I like Nowi's support convos, she's too childish, but I've gotta marry her with someone I guess. I'd put her with Ricken, but i never used him and now he's all the way back with the other mage-lady i also never used, lol (i forget her name off top of my head D: )

I think i'm'a go male next playthrough and marry Tharja... I wonder how our conversations will differ with my gender being different next time around. :O

Four pages' worth of comments and only a handful actually worth anything to the OP. Congratulations, all, you truly outdid yourselves tonight. Do it again and some of you may wind up banned for your trouble.

@fzerofan: I'm sorry your Wii U was stolen. I hope you've filed a police report, I'm afraid that's the only way Nintendo will work with you to restore your eShop account and purchased games. Other than that, I think ShadJV has a good idea to try contacting your insurance company to see if they cover items stolen from your car (they also may require a police report, though it doesn't hurt to ask). Good luck to you!
