  1. I'm sure I've done lots of silly things in the past, but my most recent blunder happened in Three Houses when I trained Byleth to be a caviler which is really hard to do since you can only train him in riding by talking to other professors. He fell behind the rest of the army pretty quickly and by the end game he was borderline useless aside from being able to use the sword of the creator. Long story short, don't build Byleth into mounts, keep his boots on the ground.
  2. I'm not a huge fan of Scott Pilgrim, but I'm really happy for all the fans who've been waiting years for this game to return. I'm not sure if I'll get it for myself, but as an arcade beat'em junkie I think I'd probably enjoy it so maybe during a sale or something.
  3. I don't have a lot of time to read books for leisure since I'm in college, but my favorite books will always be The Lord of the Rings. It's a tale of friendship, courage, duty, sacrifice, and redemption that resonates with me in a way very few things can. Return of the King moves me to tears every time.
  4. Last game I played was Marvel Vs. Capcom Infinite so I guess we're getting a Capcom developed Fire Emblem fighting game spin-off. Though Capcom has made all kinds of games in the past so I'm sure they could handle a main line title as well.
  5. I'm not particularly ashamed of the way a pick mains. I just wanted to put my personal observations out there for the sake of comparison with the others.
  6. @Fabulously Olivier and @PeaceRibbon got me thinking about what patters I could find in my mains. Aesthetics - I don't have a strong bias towards good or evil characters or male vs. female. The only thing I care about is how seriously I can take the character in the context of the game. If a character is obviously meant to be a joke or I find their design overly edgy I probably won't main them. Personality - I don't have much to say about personality because I personally consider it to be an intrinsic part of the aesthetic appeal so I'd basically be repeating myself. You guys are more than welcome to argue me on that one. Mechanics - Generally I prefer to main characters with a somewhat jack-of-all-trades play-style. Not that they necessarily need to have a tool for every situation, but they should strike a certain balance between offense and defense so that I can quickly shift gears if my current strategy stops working for whatever reason.
  7. I can confidently say that I've chosen main characters in many different games for every single reason you've proposed. Aesthetics are probably the biggest factor that draws me towards certain mains initially, but I usually swap out for mains with a comfortable/fun play style in the long run.
  8. Congratulations man, owning your own place must be pretty exciting!
  9. I've been pretty silent about Three Houses over the past year mostly because of my apprehension toward the change in direction for the gameplay. The heavy emphasis on the monastery activities wasn't holding my attention very well, the combat is just as good as it has always been and I was enjoying the story and characters way more than Awakening and Fates, but micromanaging my free days every month was a slog. Truth be told it was so grading for me that I only finished my first play through recently. That's right, while the lot of you finished all 4 routes within the first 3 months of the game's release, I took my sweet time and played 1 route sporadically over the course of a year. But despite all my grievances I can confidently say Three Houses, or at least Azure Moon in particular, is up there as one of my favorite Fire Emblem games. The story and characters are some of my favorites in the series, I grew to enjoy each member of the Blue Lions immensely and when I finally reached the time skip the story's twists and turns had dug their claws into me deep and refused to let go. The closer I got to the story's ending the more I would play the game until eventually I was blitzkrieging my way through the final few chapters because my investment in the fate of these characters was just that high. As my fondness for the characters grew I also learned to better appreciate the monastery activities because it gave me more time to interact with the characters and customize their skills and abilities in ways other Fire Emblem games only dabbled with before, now the gates are flung wide open and it's pretty darn cool. This has to be one of the biggest 180 turnarounds I've ever hand on my opinions for a video game.
  10. I think it's possible they might announce who the character is going to be, but I wouldn't expect much in the way of gameplay. I imagine the pandemic will make the development cycle for fighter's pass two much slower than the first one. However, I am definitely open to being surprised if they can get challenger pack seven into our hands sooner than I expect.
  11. Gordon - Specifically pre-recruitment. Doesn't have his bow and has no attacks whatsoever. Batta the Beast - Fights with an axe, but all other fighters automatically land critical hits on him if their damage is above 40%. Donnel - YEEEEEEEEEEHAAAAAAAAW!!! Gatekeeper - Is immune to being launched, but lacks the ability to move.
  12. Nintendo Vs. Capcom. Two companies with fantastic IPs overflowing with beloved characters clashing with flashy super moves and crazy tag/assist combos, whats not to love?
  13. Bastion/Transistor/Pyre/Hades - All developed by acclaimed indie developer Supergiant Games. I recommend playing them in the order of release, but they're all pretty different from one another so choosing the one that interests you the most is fine as well. The TakeOver - A fantastic homage to arcade beat 'em up classics like Final Fight and Streets of Rage. If you like couch co-op games, this one is a must have in my book. Killer Instinct - A fantastic fighting game with one of the most unique roster of characters in any fighting game, easy to understand fighting mechanics, and absolute banger of a soundtrack. At only $9.99 there's no reason not to pick it up. Soulcalibur VI - The latest in the long running Soulcalibur series that lives up to the excellence of it's predecessors. If you've never dived into this series before, this game is one of the best places to start.
  14. Alright guys, I won't use those terms anymore. Just don't tell your friends I'm some crazy racist or anything like that. I just wanted to point out an interesting trend in advertisements for the products of a multi-billion dollar corporation. I just don't perfectly fall on either side on the political spectrum is all I was trying to say. I probably lean a little more towards the left on most political issues, but there are some issues I'll lean towards the right.
