  1. baron tthnde zsbhki nki nvg b ,lade Had it at the start and the end. ....Ooook.
  2. (Lead + Cohort -- Reasoning [if any/needed]) {I will not include any hero in a duo position they've already been in. e.g. No Eirika as the lead or Lyon as the cohort, Ephraim is out completely as he has done both} *An asterisk means, though I may slightly prefer this setup, I don't care a whole lot which one is lead or cohort for this duo. Same-game Duos: *Saber + Genny -- Their endings in SoV (plus Genny mentioning she likes older men) subtly imply they got together Celica + Nomah Rudolf + Alm Emma + Randal Lilina + Roy or Cecilia *Zephiel + Murdoch Young Zephiel + Young Guinevere -- I've always wanted to see this, especially after they first introduced Duos with Hector + Young Lilina Eliwood + Roy -- To parallel Hector + Lilina Greil + Young Ike or Mist -- Parent and child lord is a neat trend, ok? Zelgius + Sephiran or Levail -- You knew I would Levail + Haar -- A Begnion soldier and the captain he once served under Edward + Nolan Darios + Rowan and/or Lianna *Annette + Gilbert -- Either have a child Annette as cohort or War Arc Annette as lead. Harmonic Duos: Ashnard + Gangrel --The two Mad Kings *Nils + Jahn -- Ice dragon boy and fire dragon man Black Knight + ...... I dunno, Death Knight? Or maybe Ares, since he also has the title of "Black Knight" Rowan or Lianna + Any of the fathers (preferably not the bad ones)
  3. Always love a good remix. I have several favorites among FE remixes, though it's mainly official ones. I hope having this many hyperlinks is not an issue, especially for the more recent Premium Arranges and Flower of Enchantment soundtracks... Nintendo GSM 3: Fire Emblem FE3 Sound Memorium ---- Fire Emblem Main Theme FE4 Arranged Soundtrack ---- Almost all of them, really. No particular faves. FE5 Arranged Soundtrack The majority of Cipher Caravan. Very serene and relaxing. FE Premium Arrange I FE Premium Arrange II FE Music Collection - Session ~Flower of Enchantment Toy Music 2 Fire Emblem Smash Bros.
  4. Yeah, that could've been neat. But honestly, I think Heroes was the best way to move forward with the all-star concept (say what you will about gachas). I've always and will continue to give some CYL votes to Nergal since he's yet to truly be playable, he's one of the only major villains yet to make it in; and for many of us, he was our first major FE villain. Come ON already, IS. Even a GHB would do.
  5. First, what bright red armor? BK Einherjar doesn't wear bright red armor. Believe me, I'd know. You sure it's not just the enemy color palette you're looking at? Second, I do agree that they should've given him the proper weapon type. Heck, I reclassed BK and Zephiel to Hero and Grandmaster respectively so they could wield swords. Other characters got similar treatment (Ashnard using an axe?). But at the same time--given the limitation of the Awakening classes--there is some logic behind this choice: BK - Class: General ~Wields lances and axes. Has a higher lance rank, because in FE9/10 he can wield swords and lances Ashnard - Class: Wyvern Lord ~Wields axes and lances. Has a higher axe rank, because in FE9 he can wield swords and axes (yes, really, though you'd never see it without hacking or using him in trial maps) And then there's...Zephiel, whose class is General despite his original King class being sword-locked. Clearly they did this because King is an armored class (though not weak to armor slaying weapons, hence he has the Conquest skill) There were probably more examples, but I can't remember any more off the top of my head.
  6. Personally, I really don't count Awakening's Einherjar/Spotpass units (except for the Spotpass paralogues; recruiting supposedly dead characters from the main story is very reminiscent of trial maps, but you don't have to do multiple playthroughs to unlock them, which is great). It's not truly them, not in the way like they are in Heroes. They're just "spirits"; with their original, official art as their portrait and their model merely a preset avatar. My Nergal Einherjar? Just a Sorcerer with a forged Aversa's Night renamed to Ereshkigal. You will never convince me that I'm actually playing as Nergal. Because I'm not. It's simply not the same. Alas, it's not my list. You do you. Ok look...when Awakening was fresh, I DID train a bunch of Einherjar (mainly villains); cap their stats and forge them "unique" weapons (and LB + AT to make them unbreakable). Yes, I had fun doing so. But this was before Heroes came out and made this concept much more genuine, and arguably more fun.
  7. Flat 10%. For instance, an Inigo with Rightful King, Armsthrift, and unmodified capped luck (45) will proc Armsthrift 100% of the time. (Armsthrift proc rate: [Luck x2]%. 90 +10 = 100)
  8. If (assuming you are using an emulator) you were somehow able to restore the functionality that allowed the Japanese version to link to Binding Blade, that would allow you to skip Lyn Mode, among the other bonus features. Probably more trouble than you want to bother with, but I just wanted to throw it out there.
  9. So it's QoL improvements on the physical side. I get the feeling this won't satiate people's thirst for a "Switch Pro", but if it does make them shut up, so much the better.
  10. I echo Lord_Brand on the possibility of Metal Slug. Plus a new installment was announced last month, albeit it's a FF Tactics-style spin-off. And it's honestly still a big want for me. Remember the moveset I made 2 years ago in this thread? At least two aspects of that moveset ending up actually being implemented into a DLC fighter (Min Min got weapon-swapping Down B, Byleth got gender-specific taunts and victory animations; and heck, they did Hero-style alts a 2nd time with Steve). I'd still love to see Mii Gunner costumes of them at the very least, but I'm not holding my breath. And if I couldn't have Lloyd, at least his costume came back.
  11. I've mentioned my amiibo and Marth Nendoroid before, the former still being the bulk of my collection. But now I finally have some pictures to share. Amiibo: You might've noticed three tin badges of Eliwood, Roy, and F!Morgan sitting on top of Lucina. Got these in 2016 at a convention (I think it was AM² or something like that). The selection was only from Awakening and Fates. Pity I hadn't played Fates yet, else I'd have gotten F!Kana instead of Eliwood. *shrug* Closeup: My Marth Nendoroid figure. Got it at the same convention along with the tin badges. And lastly, my Awakening 3DS. I hardly play it anymore, so it's really just an FE collector's item at this point. But I still cherish it. Not shown: My 3H Black Eagles t-shirt; an image showing the official art of several FE7 characters grouped together, ripped out of a Nintendo Power magazine; and a standard paper-sized promotional FE8 poster which should still be lying around somewhere. Except for Path of Radiance and Birthright, I have all English localized FE games, including spinoffs. (Shadow Dragon and FEW are digital, the rest physical)
  12. It's done to waste your turns, of course. If it takes most of your turns to defeat the other units, you can run out of turns before you have a chance to engage the lone blocked unit in the corner. Admittedly I've employed this "bad war tactic design". So far I've only had one success via exceeding the turn limit. Any other success I've had have been surrenders; One guy didn't even try, and I'm not exactly a pro AR defender. '_'
  13. You may not have known unless you skimmed through my old posts, but I am a big Sonic fan. Not one of the obnoxious ones, I promise. Admittedly this... Sonic Direct, as it were, was average for me. But there were things to be excited about. As I favor the classic series, I am most hyped for Sonic Origins, for 3 reasons. The statement of "updated features" may mean we're finally getting Taxman's mobile ports of Sonic 1 and 2 on console. Sonic 3 & Knuckles is finally getting a re-release after roughly a decade. I'm curious to see if MJ's tracks get replaced with remastered prototype/PC music. Sonic CD--one of my favorite games of all time--comes to current gen systems (previously only being playable via backwards compatibilty [Xbox One -> 360] or by streaming/PS Now [PS4 -> PS3]); and assuming this comes to Switch, this makes it the first time CD's been available on a Nintendo platform since Sonic Gems Collection on the freaking Gamecube! What piece of Sonic news are you most hyped about?
  14. Maui Mallard in Cold Shadow, an obscure 16-bit Disney platformer that isn't talked about enough, has a fittingly memorable game over screen. (I base this on the PC version) Maui/Donald Duck is yanked by a green hand and dragged supposedly into hell, which normally happens when you lose a life. But for a game over, this happens on the hill w/ blue background seen on the title/level start/continue screens, after which four shocking chords play. Sad music then plays as a muddrake (a small tribal Disney duck) lays some flowers at Maui's "grave", takes off his hat/wig to briefly mourn and shed a tear before walking off......in his normal walking animation which makes him out to be happy (makes sense in context). "Game Over" appears from the top and the sad music ends; followed by two cartoonishly upbeat notes (by what I assume is supposed to be a tuba). It's like those funny endings to a cartoons episode, except you died. And that's kinda hilarious. This is repeated in most traditional Kirby games. Only Dreamland 3 and 64 don't have this scene. These two games don't have a continue choice, so this is automatically explained. In Superstar (Ultra) - if this counts as a traditional Kirby game - has the most memorable scene when master hand sends Kirby to the moon (star), if the player quits. Dreamland 2 doesn't have it either. If you continue, Kirby and friends wake up and go on their merry way. If you quit, a night sky appears from the top of the screen as they continue to sleep.
  15. I remember seeing The Blazing Blade in a catalog of GBA games, not to mention that bizarre commercial. We went to Gamestop and my sisters happened to pick that game out. Played it and enjoyed it a lot. Later we got Sacred Stones and Radiant Dawn, and soon I was looking up the series' history such as the Japan-only games and representation in Smash. That's when I went full-on Emblemier and never looked back. I've got most of the games that have come out since, and all but two of the FE amiibo (which is incredibly lucky for me).
