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~

@liavcol: eek, i'll be waiting for a review, then.

that's kinda the sad thing about some games — the premise may sound awesome, but in reality it's up in the air as to whether or not they'll be able to pull it off successfully D:

naah, i'd suggest they snap up some of the people behind Capcom's artwork for the Street Fighter characters. Some of them have ridiculous feet in the artwork for arcade machines and stuff, haha D:

i was trying to find an image to illustrate how ridiculously large the feet are in some SF artwork, but then i got bored and stumbled across this gif which i found amusing:

My rule of thumb has always been whether or not the last post in a given thread was within six months of the duplicate. Both of the threads WingedFish linked to have been active within the past few months, therefore it's game on.

noticed the downloads go to your Memory card ..

so say you have the game and download the maps and then sell off your game.. in a few months you rebuy the game... would you still have the dlc or do you need to buy them again since it saves to your memory card and not the game itself

I know when I downloaded the DLC on my 3DS, my husband had to download the DLC onto his own — the game acted like it had had no DLC downloaded at all. I'd imagine that, once you re-buy the game in your situation, the game would behave as if you'd downloaded the DLC on one file and started a brand new game on an empty slot; the already-downloaded maps wouldn't be accessible until that one spot on the map opens up, but they'd be there for you to access as soon as it was available.

if there really is a 'happy' and 'sad' ending and you guys weren't just messing around about that too up there, without spoiling too much about it, can anyone tell me (and/or anyone else who may be interested in the same) what triggers which ending? or point me to a place that lays out the triggers/decisions? i'm kinda leery of looking through gamefaqs right now, trying to avoid spoilers of story points D:

@Discostew: How many people in your home do you have wanting to play this game? If you all use separate save files, you can set up your StreetPass information on each of your 3DSes and help grind your party via StreetPass unit battles. If you don't want to fight, just have them put Frederick into their party so you can buy Silver Lances from them, haha. waiting and purchasing a physical copy to trade back and forth has actually been quite a big help for myself and my husband thanks to StreetPassing! :3

I really want to use Lan'Qu and Donnel (especially Donnel) but usually can't pick that many people so far. do the later levels let you pick more characters, or does it generally stay the same?

sometimes you get to pick more characters, sometimes less. i think the chapter 6 battle i had myself, chrom, frederick, sully, donnel, an avatar i recruited, lan'qu, kellam, maribelle, vaike, and then i picked up two characters on the map as well. i'm playing on normal, though, so idk if you can't have as many on higher levels or not :3

all right, so i figured it out — lucky for me my husband is playing it too, and you can earn some mad experience messing around with StreetPass Unit battles and the Paralogue fights that opened up too, so I was able to level up my doods enough to go ahead and kick Risen butt. a merchant even showed up for that battle and gave me a nifty item that raised my Res stat by 2 for saving them, so that was good times.

also, i just married Chrom this morning — it wasn't really 'married', but we're listed as 'husband' and 'wife' under each other's stats, haha. next i think i'm'a focus on Sully and Frederick. i love these support talks~
i 'bout died laughing when i got Chrom and Frederick to Support Level C haha~
