  1. I think the discrepancy is due to time zones; based on the previous DLC releases, Byleth will be released on the 28th in some places and the 29th in others. Regardless, the previous characters released late-ish in the day so Byleth probably won't be out until after the time you plan on streaming.
  2. Yuri talks at 1:26 and his voice is clearly different from the voice speaking at 1:01, so they're probably different people. I wish that the character lineup was bigger, but oh well. We can transfer the Wolves to the main game afterwards so it isn't too much of an issue.
  3. Wave 3 was released at 8:00 PM EST, so Wave 4 should release whatever time that is in your time zone.
  4. I haven't played Silver Snow yet so that was my mistake, as another explanation I'll just attribute it to Thales being arrogant. Thales: Mwahaha, all of Fódlan's nations have fallen! We do not even need the King of Liberation to eliminate the rest of those beasts! Honestly I'm not too troubled by the lack of explanation so I haven't thought about it too much. Maybe we'll get an explanation when Three Houses gets an artbook in four years.
  5. The final battle with Edelgard takes place two months earlier than it does in AM, so she either isn't as desperate, didn't have time to heal from her injuries in Gronder, or didn't have time to prepare her transformation. He does and we just don't see it because the game ends. Faerghus is being occupied by Rhea and the Knights of Seiros, so Cornelia doesn't attempt her coup because it's harder to take over with the Knights around. Having Byleth's help makes Claude more proactive in trying to solve Fódlan's problems himself. Ferdinand speculates that Nemesis was awakened when Shambhala was destroyed by the Javelins of Light, so he wouldn't awaken if that didn't happen in CF or AM. SS ends a month before VW so maybe his revival wasn't ready yet. Rhea is bedridden for VW's final chapter, so even if she was losing control she would be too weak to hurt anyone. Perhaps she was more injured in VW than in SS.
  6. It's established that those who slither in the dark can make artificial Crest Stones, which are mainly used to mass produce Demonic Beasts. With Aymr being created by them for Edelgard's use, the likely explanation is that Aymr's Crest Stone is also artificial. Why it has the Crest of the Beast on it isn't explained anywhere, and there's no evidence that there's any specific reason to be found in-game. The revived 10 Elites use replicas of their Heroes' Relics, so maybe Aymr's Crest Stone was originally intended for a replica of Blutgang.
  7. This seems to be an unpopular opinion, but I think picking Byleth and giving them the lords' Heroes' Relics is probably the best realistic outcome we could have gotten (adding three characters isn't a realistic outcome). And we finally got a FE stage that's actually based on a FE location, which is nice since Arena Ferox barely counts. We are also fortunate enough for the stage to be graced by the presence of Lorenz Hellman Gloucester and the almighty Gatekeeper himself.
  8. It's worth noting that the description for the trailer says that the Ashen Wolves can be brought into the main game, though it isn't clear if you have to complete Abyss Mode first or if you just have to reach a certain point. Presumably they will act as normal units once they are brought over.
  9. You know, by the time the second fighter's pass is done, Sakurai will have been working on Super Smash Bros. for almost ten years straight. Smash 4 started development in April 2012, development on Ultimate started immediately after 4's DLC was finished, and the second fighters pass is expected to be finished by December 2021. And then Sakurai will announce Fighters Pass 3, featuring eight characters releasing by 2025. Also I'm wondering of Balthus is Malos's long lost twin or something.
  10. Here's an observation: back when the datamine came out, we couldn't tell from the data which female was Constance and which was Hapi (from context clues we could determine who Yuri and Balthus were). But since they both use magic in the trailer, we can now tell that Constance is DLC3 and Hapi is DLC4. As for their Crests, we now know that
  11. Based on how the previous three fighter presentations went, it's worth mentioning ahead of time that the next character will probably be releasing tomorrow. Stay vigilant, and hopefully it won't take too long for the patch to download.
  12. Heroes getting a TMS#FE banner reminded me of this image I have...
  13. It's fine, this reminds me of the time when the admin of a Minecraft server I frequented always called me Lightning, even when there was someone actually named Lightning playing at the same time so it was hard to tell who he was referring to. P.S. Please leave Mythra alone.
  14. Once Xenoblade Definitive Edition releases, we will all have to face Rotbart the Territorial once again... Speaking of giant gorillas, while trying to finish Electra's quest I had to go past Immovable Gonzalez, which I haven't defeated at that point. I could never run past it before it one shotted me, so after doing this a few times I decided it would be easier to level up to lv99 and just fight it (this basically amounted to heading to the nearest inn). I planned on replaying Xenoblade 2 half a year ago, but Three Houses came out shortly after so I never got around to it. Hopefully Rotbart won't kill me too much if I go back to it. Speaking of Xenoblade and Three Houses, fighting the Death Knight in Mercedes's paralogue reminded me...
  15. So to commemorate the new year I went back to Xenoblade 2 to do Kora's quest and defeat Tyrannotitan Kurodil. Besides that, Three Houses, and Doom, I recently got Weegee's Mansion 3, Dragon Quest XI, and Astral Chain, as well as Pokémon Shield to see how its simultaneously better yet worse than the previous games. I started reading The Lord of the Rings too, which I've wanted to do for a while now. I'm finished with college so now I have a wealth of free time (though even if I wasn't finished I would still have the month off). On the topic of Star Wars, I haven't seen The Sky of Risewalker yet but "Weird Al" Yankovic made a song about The Phantom Menace so I think that makes it the best Star Wars movie.
  16. Buy every last one of them! WWYDI Edelgard was selling girl scout cookies and you saw Hubert glaring at you behind her?
  17. I would need to reread the HtHs to refresh my memory, but maybe they can work on a case-by-case basis where some conversations have an Affinity requirement or require viewing a previous conversation, but most don't. Alternatively they can be locked until certain points in the plot if necessary (which XC2 does in one case). HtH requirements didn't bother me too much compared to other quality of life improvements I would like to see, though I wouldn't mind if they were changed in the Definitive Edition.
  18. Three Houses has been out for almost half a year now, so here we can reflect on our predictions on the plot (pre-release or post-release) and see how accurate they were. I'll start with mine (I played Verdant Wind first): Incidentally, I didn't suspecting anything off about Tomas until Sothis called him suspicious. I didn't suspect anything about Jeritza either until the Death Knight showed up, and that's only because I recognized his voice (though I first I thought Patrick Seitz was just double casting). I also had some sort of theory about the Heroes' Relics being made from the goddess's bones, which wasn't quite correct but was close to the truth. Now it is your turn. Which of your predictions turned out to be hilariously wrong (or hilariously right)?
  19. I finished Crimson Flower two days ago, after my last college final. It was fun and I appreciated the different perspective from the other routes. Overall I'm glad I played the routes in the order I did (Verdant Wind, Azure Moon, Crimson Flower), because I got the big lore out of the way first and playing Crimson Flower last gave me access to Jeritza. I'll get to Silver Snow eventually but I'm taking a break for now. Also, I want to say that enemy Pegasus Knights are terrible and I hope I never have to see one again (though I probably will). Really, who thought it would be a good idea to give them enough strength to one round most of my units and give them enough defense to not be one shot in return? But while I'm waiting for Christmas, I got Doom 2016 because it was half off on the eShop. It's quite fun, and I wonder if Dimitri would like killing every last one of the demons...
  20. Nosebleeds are more common during the winter months due to differences between the cold outside air and the hot and dry inside air, so that might be the reason. That, or you're picking your nose too much. Would you be interested in trying buffalo wing-flavored soda?
  21. Killer Queen has already touched that reply button. Anyway I'm on the last chapter of Crimson Flower, but I'm not finishing it now because Chapter 17 took longer than expected and I have work to do. When it's done I'll finally be able to talk about Three Houses' plot in a mostly informed manner (Silver Snow aside, I'll get to that later), but at the moment I have a paper to write. But on a tangent, one of Edie's advice box notes says that light from the Blue Sea Star takes millions of years to reach Fódlan, as determined by astronomical research. Does this mean that Fódlan's astronomers have already determined the speed of light and stellar distances? The speed of light wasn't accurately determined in our world until 1899. Science is truly amazing... Rhea at the end of CF be like
  22. The most effective grinding method is fighting the Relentless Aruduran. But you have to work to encounter it; have you encountered the Infant Ardun in Torigoth? Hopefully you didn't kill it. It starts at level 1 and you have to feed it items until it reaches level 99, after which it grows into the Relentless Aruduran that you can fight at your liesure. Since it's a Unique Monster, you can fight it as much as you want, and performing Driver Combos on it will get you plenty of Core Crystals. This page has a list of items you can use to make it grow. If you happened to kill the Ardun before it grew up all the way, you're locked out of fighting the Relentless Aruduran unless you play New Game Plus, so hopefully you left it alone. In that case, you can grind Core Crystals by fighting another Unique Monster instead, though it won't be as efficient.
