  1. I think it's confusing that every set of fully evolved starters since Gen VI (or maybe Gen V) has been controversial when they were initially revealed, because you'd think Game Freak would try harder to make them as appealing as possible, more so than most other Pokémon. That being said I like all of the new Pokémon thus far, especially Centiskorch, Apple Worm, Impidimp's evolutions, and ENDLESS TRASH Garbodor. Hopefully all of them are real and not convincing fakes, but we'll know soon enough.
  2. I don't think people should be talking about spoilers in an official news thread, so if you're going to talk about leaked stuff then I suggest that you take it to the spoiler thread here.
  3. Since some copies of Sword and Shield may be out already, the time is right to make a dedicated thread for spoilers. Of course we don't know if any leaks so far are true, but if not at least we have this thread ready to talk about them.
  4. This does put a smile on my face... Though oddly enough, this briefing puts sales at at 1.7 million in 13 weeks, not 2.29 million (it also compares sales to Awakening and Fates's). Can anyone think of why that is?
  5. Following the Battle of the Eagle and Lion, Rhea decided to devote the 31st day of the Wyvern Moon to letting everyone dress up in strange and spooky costumes. What does everyone do with their newfound and brief freedom?
  6. Character Name: Lucian Forum Name: Lightchao42 Class: Sage Affiliation: Protagonist Recruitment: NPC, talk with Lord Recruitment Time: Late Game Lucian starts as a wandering scholar who seeks the learn the secrets of...something, so he's indifferent to the overall conflict. He first meets the heroes as an NPC around the middle of the game to deliver whatever plot exposition is necessary, but eventually he decides to join the party because he thinks their adventure might be interesting. Alternatively, Lucian can initially be aligned with the enemy faction if they need an amoral scientist type character, though he still isn't interested in the main conflict and can help the heroes if he runs into them. Regardless of his starting alignment, he still ends up joining the heroes near the end of the game.
  7. I finished Azure Moon route of Three Houses the other day, and though I mentioned my thoughts in another thread already I'll post them here too. Spoilers for Azure Moon and Verdant Wind: I don't plan on starting Crimson Flower until Jeritza becomes playable, but I might start a Black Eagles playthrough beforehand if I feel like it (and go for Silver Snow if I somehow get that far before Wave 3 of the DLC).
  8. I finished Azure Moon the other day, so I suppose I'll share some of my thoughts on it. Spoilers for AM and Verdant Wind: I don't plan on starting Crimson Flower until Jeritza becomes playable, but I might start a Black Eagles playthrough beforehand if I feel like it (and go for Silver Snow if I somehow get that far before Wave 3 of the DLC). Also on that some day I saw Avengers Endgame for the first time, and I'm proud that I never needed to go for a bathroom break. My sister loved it despite having no exposure to the MCU aside from the first half of Spider-Man Homecoming, and she followed along better than I expected.
  9. I can't wait for the first area to have a level 81 Territorial Slaking. So about two weeks ago I sent in my Joy-Cons to have their drifting fixed, and earlier today I got them back. Since they were my only Switch controllers I haven't been able to play Three Houses in the meantime, where I was on Chapter 20 on Azure Moon. I was wondering if I should have just finished it before sending my Joy-Cons in, but I preferred to stay on the safe side because didn't want to accidentally delete my save data or something. More importantly, on the index card that I sent with my Joy-Cons I also wrote "Who is your favorite Fire Emblem: Three Houses character?" I didn't know if anyone would respond but I thought it was worth I shot. When I got the package I found that someone did respond! They said they love Edelgard and Dorothea, and they even doodled their faces (and apologized for not being able to draw). The whole thing really made my day more special. The moral of the story is that if you send something to be repaired by Nintendo, be sure to ask a question so you can get your money's worth (though my Joy-Cons were repaired for free, aside from the 85 cents I spent on an envelope).
  10. Because pirates are into that sort of thing, of course. I didn't really mean anything by it, but you're welcome to feel complimented if you want. Speaking of which, if I have a goddess living inside me, what kind of specialist should I go to about it?
  11. You probably have a goddess living inside you. If Yoshi was a Pokémon, what would his type be?
  12. I haven't played the Black Eagles route yet, but I've done the Golden Deer. For male Byleth: Claude: Think, Claude. What now? Should I carry him on my back? Easier said than done... And for female Byleth: Claude: Think, Claude. What now? Maybe Hilda can help carry her back? She'll complain, but she won't refuse...
  13. From the website, Longcat Meowth is an early purchase bonus and Pikachu and Eevee are obtained from having save data of their respective Let's Go! games. None of them can evolve. Either way, Butterfree wins among this batch for being a Mothra reference. Now we just need Godzilla and King Ghidorah...
  14. It would be hard to make any of those characters playable (for more than a few chapters anyway) without significantly changing the plot. Jeritza doesn't have that problem because there's no reason for him to not be around during Crimson Flower. Speaking of Jeritza, As for the other characters, my only hope is that one of them is from Morfis, because a city of magic in the middle of a desert to too neat to not be expanded on.
  15. As you might know already, Wave 4 is set to introduce four new characters to the cast: Juris, Balthazar, Constanze, and Javi. We don't know anything about them aside from their names, so here you can list what you want their backstories, classes, stats, Crests, etc. to be. Of course, you can also list your wants for Jeritza and Anna too, who are due to be added in Wave 3, or any other characters you want to be playable.
  16. I've always been a big fan of Mario & Luigi, so I'm sad to see this happen. Nintendo could get another developer to continue the series like with Donkey Kong Country, but would they want to?
  17. Are you playing Crimson Flower? I heard Legend of the Lake can be locked off early if you do something in a certain chapter. I don't know what would make it disappear in the middle of a month though.
  18. Is there a list of characters who don't appear as enemies in the Crimson Flower route if you don't recruit them?
  19. Hubert sits behind Edelgard during every writing assignment to make sure nobody plagiarizes her work. Dorothea dots her i's with hearts, which she got from Manuela. Speaking of Manuela, her handwriting is technically fine but she has a tendency to eat while writing. Hilda's handwriting is much neater than her lazy demeanor would suggest. Ferdinand writes very meticulously to ensure his handwriting is better than Edelgard's. As such, his writing assignments take longer than they should. Bernadetta's handwriting is readable, but sloppy because she wants to finish her assignment as quickly as possible so she can head back to her room. She's much more neat when writing in her room. Dedue does his best to write very neatly, because Dimitri taught him to write and he doesn't want to let him down. Lorenz believes it is a noble's duty to have the fanciest possible handwriting. Byleth frequently has trouble reading his work. Leonie doesn't think it matters how neat her writing is as long as it's readable. Raphael agrees, but he places less emphasis on the "readable" part.
  20. Here it is. The first time I got a three way tie between Lysithea, Ignatz, and Petra (but Lysithea was the one shown). The second time I got Petra (11 points), with Ignatz (10 points) in second and Lysithea (9 points) tied for third. The girlfriend quiz got me Marianne with Edelgard in second. I S-supported Marianne in my first playthrough so I suppose its accurate, and it might mean I'll have to S-support Edelgard when I play Crimson Flower.
  21. Aside from the obvious I don't think the plot needs to be changed, but here's a wishlist of gameplay changes I would like to see (most of which were inspired by the later Xenoblade games): An Event Theater to rewatch cutscenes Quest Markers to show you where quest objectives are (so you don't have to look up where to find certain enemies/places) Make level penalties less crippling Include Fashion Gear from XCX (so you can wear one armor while benefiting from the stats of another), because I want to keep everyone in their canon outfits Voiced Heart-to-Hearts (since they are apparently adding new dialogue) Bonus experience General balance changes/AI fixes
  22. If Nintendo let Sakurai pick the characters this time then I can see him wanting to add first parties who were too late for the base game (Rex, a Three Houses character, a Gen VIII Pokémon, Astral Chain protagonist, etc.). If Nintendo picked the characters again then we'll just get more third parties. Sakurai's statement on worlds is apparently more accurately translated as "by adding just one character we can expand the world of Smash" so I don't think it means anything. Unless he means we're only getting one more character.
  23. I already have Xenoblade Chronicles 3D, but this looks good enough for me to get it again. And it looks like a good mix of the artstyles of XC1 and XC2 too; I particularly like the lighting on Metal Face here. I'm mainly interested in seeing
  24. I don't remember hearing about it and I don't feel like digging through a year of Saito's twitter history to find out, so I don't think he did (though Saga did of course). Saito isn't a Nintendo employee, so I don't know if that makes a Xenoblade announcement more or less likely.
