Anyone else feel kinda guilty for wanting to get the Golden Gaffe pack to reduce grinding? The EXPonential Growth on oughta help since Vaike has never even been in a battle on my game, and I'm trying to max all my units stats, and I know this might make it easier but it feels kinda like cheating...

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

daaaaaahahaha that was horrible D:

but srsly... i'd never heard of that thing, lol. i might try it in my next playthrough. also, whyyyyy have you not used Vaike, i love him to bits :O

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.

wait, what??? i thought there would've been something blocking the elder generation from marrying any of the kids...?!

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

Trash talk is for stressful situations and competitions, not building a community. You can take that other person down off their peg without resorting to insulting his or her parental lineage and/or their level of adherence to stereotypical gender roles.

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!

Please don't spam our forums or encourage others to do so. For your idea to work, people would need to contact Nintendo directly, which may be done via e-mail here and by calling their customer service hotline at 1-800-255-3700 (Nintendo of America), or via the information found here if it's Nintendo of Europe you're after. Good luck!

pretty much. the answer would differ greatly from person to person. you may as well ask whether someone would consider a series of given sounds 'music' or a collection of random words 'poetry' or 'literature'.

Not to restart the same old tail-chasing argument that usually happens whenever anyone gets wind of the words 'video games' and 'art' being used in the same sentence, but

(a) Art isn't really in the eye of the creator; one man's crap is another man's mindblowing statement about life, the universe, and everything
(b) It's in the nature of Japanese culture for people to be humble about their own work and allow others to praise it fully.

'Art' is too subjective a term, and if he doesn't want it applied to his games by his subordinates, that's his call to make, but he can't stop anyone else from saying (or awarding things) as they please. Either way, congratulations to him on the award~
