  1. I think this move would be better received if the games were significantly different and more advanced, ambitious, etc. than previous entries, but Sword and Shield don't really look any better than the 3DS games. Basically, its sacrificing quantity without much quality in return. I'm willing to wait and see if these promises of "improved animations and balance" amount to anything, but I'm not expecting much (since all the models and animations seem the same as they were in X and Y). The problem is that Pokémon will sell tens of millions no matter what, so Game Freak doesn't have much reason to innovate or improve on anything. Though I'm not really sure when Game Freak started caring about balance, they certainly didn't when they created Mega Rayquaza. Technically "genwun" was adopted from the Transformers fanbase, though the term they use is "geewun".
  2. Soooooo I'm playing Octopath Traveler I've been stuck on Olberic's first boss for half a year now, because no one is an irritating boss like Gaston. I'm recruiting everyone "in order" so I have Ophilia, Cyrus, and Tressa (recruited in that order) in my party in addition to Olberic. I don't feel like level grinding and trying again will just make me lose motivation to continue playing, so what is the most efficient method of winning?
  3. I was bored so I copied the descriptions of all the seminars and what skills they improve: Byleth: Begin a seminar on group tactics and Jeralt’s mercenary fighting style. Swords (C+) and Authority (B) Seteth: Begin a seminar on an ancient Fódlan fighting style utilizing lance skills. Lances (B) and Authority (C+) Hanneman: Begin a seminar on both reason and bow skills from an esteemed professor of the monastery and the leading Crest scholar in Fódlan. Bows (D+) and Reason (B) Manuela: Begin a seminar on both faith and sword skills from a beloved professor of the monastery and former songstress. Swords (D) and Faith (B) Gilbert: Begin a seminar on a fighting style developed by the Knights of Seiros that utilizes lance and axe skills. Lances (C) and Axes (C) Alois: Begin a seminar on a fighting style developed by the Knights of Seiros that utilizes axes and gauntlets. Axes (B) and Gauntlets (C) Catherine: Begin a seminar on a fighting style in which practitioners dominate their opponent using improvised sword and melee techniques. Swords (B+) and Gauntlets (C) Shamir: Begin a seminar on fighting styles designed for special situations, such as firing a bow from a long distance or battling in the dark. Lances (C) and Bows (B+)
  4. Has the Treehouse gameplay been posted yet? Hopefully it hasn't.
  5. I kind of feel that Dragon Quest is the last series that really "deserves" to have a character in Smash. I would say Shin Megami Tensei too, but that has Joker even though he only represents Persona (which is a spinoff of SMT), so I'm not sure what to think of that case. Banjo-Kazooie is an odd case because the series isn't iconic (like, say, Crash is) and it hasn't been relevant in a decade, but it technically originated as a first-party Nintendo series. Banjo probably would've been in Brawl or 4 if the series stayed with Nintendo (and wasn't left to rot). In other news, I recall hearing that the first three Fighters Pass characters were in development at launch. I take that to mean the last two started development recently, assuming they started at all (Banjo and Kazooie don't seem as polished as Hero, so maybe they aren't very far either). It makes me wonder if the final two will have a different philosophy from the first three.
  6. That specific, overly large number was a joke. Sakurai said it would be nice to wait ten years for the next game, but most likely it will start development whenever the next Nintendo console is released.
  7. I haven't played any Banjo-Kazooie games so I don't know if they were always like this, but here they seem like jerks. K. Rool was so happy to see them, yet they still threw him off a cliff and crushed him under a rock. What terrible people. But anyway I think Rex has a decent chance for the next game when it releases in 2035, since Sakurai likes XC2 and suggested that Rex (and an ARMS character) would be in Ultimate if the timing was more convenient. He's a popular request among first parties so that could help bypass any "relevancy" issues.
  8. Today it was announced that that Pokémon outside the Galar Pokédex can't be transferred to SnS, but beyond that we have two new Pokémon: The doggo is Yamper, an Electric-type with the ability Ball Fetch, which lets it collect the first failed throw of a Poké Ball during a battle. Impidimp is a Dark/Fairy-type, a new type combination.
  9. I was confident in us getting a Dragon Quest character but I wasn't convinced it would be Erdrick in particular, so I guess I was kind of correct even if Erdrick is in as an alt. And with Banjo in, hopefully we will get acknowledgement of the greatest Rare IP, Viva Piñata. Also the Spiral Mountain track was added to the website.
  10. Don't worry, this is only episode 1 (a fact that Square presently seems to ignore/avoid mentioning). The rest of the episodes will go back to never being released, so we'll have plenty of opportunities to make jokes in the future. Speaking of which, shouldn't that official confirmation be specifying that Episode 1 is releasing 3/3/20 and not the whole game? Because I imagine people will be annoyed when they learn that they aren't getting the entire game at once. I'm guessing they need some kind of epic climax at the end of every episode, even if they have to make one up. Maybe the clones being around earlier has something to do with that.
  11. To no one's surprise, Sakurai announced at the end of the Ultimate World Championship that the next DLC character will be revealed during Nintendo's E3 Direct. His wording suggested that there will be only one character, but maybe we'll get another character revealed on Twitter if we're lucky.
  12. I expect Three Houses to have a presence in the Direct and at Treehouse Live, but hopefully they won't show too much. Maybe the English website will update with all the students too. Marianne is the student I'm most interested in, but she'll likely be revealed last at this rate so oh well. And maybe they'll reveal that Sothis can use her time powers to summon your students' children from the future!
  13. I get the feeling that there was some misunderstanding involved here. I assume Vee was a placeholder for the trailer and that Edelgard was never "her" role to begin with, which is why the voice director didn't mind casting someone else instead. Meanwhile, Vee didn't audition for Edelgard because she expected to be called back when voice recording for Three Houses started properly, but she wasn't. Because nobody asked before now.
  14. At last, the rightful king returns. According to the Steam page... Huh, adding cut content is much more than what I was expecting, especially a whole new boss fight. It makes me wonder just how much new content this remake will have?
  15. The website has updated, here are the typings of the new Pokémon: Gossifleur and Eldegloss are pure Grass Wooloo is pure Normal (presumably our early game, two-stage Normal type) Corviknight is Flying/Steel Drednaw is Water/Rock Zacian and Zamazenta don't have their types yet, which isn't unusual as we didn't get the types for the previous mascots immediately. Thinking back on it, I liked Sun and Moon's approach of getting new information every two weeks so I hope they do that again here.
  16. For an idea, I suggest that the final boss should be an obligatory evil dragon known as the Data Dragon, who seeks to destroy the continent of Zerenia with eternal error messages and lag. But you can do something different if you have other ideas for the final boss.
  17. Since I must compare everything to Xenoblade 2, I'm guessing the Flame Emperor's faction will be like Torna. On an unrelated note, will the Flame Emperor turn out to be Edelgard's supposedly dead older brother? Catherine also seems like a Camus for some reason, if the Church turns out to be evil. Alois seems like he'd be conflicted if the Church is bad, maybe he'll be a Lorenz instead (unrelated to this game's Lorenz, presumably). I'm wondering just how long this game is. One month equals one chapter, but how many "traditional" battles will there be? Will there be multiple battles per month/chapter? How many chapters will there be? Anyway, some crest stuff (spoliered for length):
  18. I imagined being a late game unit (who may first appear around mid-game but doesn't join the player until later), but you can do whatever you want.
  19. Hey, when did I become the only genderless character? My gender is right there in my profile. Maybe my character can be the obligatory pretty boy as a compromise. Anyway, I imagine my character starting off as a neutral traveling scholar or he can start with the enemy faction if they need some kind of eccentric scientist. He eventually helps the heroes because he usually goes with whatever side is most convenient for his interests. Whatever he studies (magic, dragons, special artifacts, etc.) can depend on the needs of the plot.
  20. So it's been three months since SnS have been announced, but fortunately the information drought will be over soon. 15 minutes is quite long, so hopefully we'll get the mascots and a decent amount of new Pokémon announced.
  21. I guess I'll throw my ring in to the hat with more details. Username: Lightchao42 Game Name: Lucian Desired Class: Bishop (from Mage) You can do whatever you want regarding stats, but I imagine him joining late-ish.
  22. Strange news everyone! The movie has been delayed to February. It seems the filmmakers are actually changing the things people didn't like, which I wasn't expecting.
  23. I wish you luck with this, if you go through with making it. I volunteer myself as an exposition bot scholar who is largely indifferent to whatever conflict is going on, but is willing to share information with whoever wants it. Maybe he can be a late joining Sage in case the player's mages aren't up to par.
  24. Animal Crossing (the star of the show) Fighters Pass character 2 (available immediately after presentation) and maybe character 3 (releasing a few months later) Trailers for Mario Maker 2, Three Houses (and DLC), Weegee's Mansion 3, and Link's Awakening remake We'll probably get Sword and Shield information before E3, so I don't expect too much in the direct No Fire Emblem Warriors 2, because they'll want to wait until Three Houses has been out for a while (so they can pull popular characters from it) Nothing from Monolith Soft Still no Pikmin 4 Miscellaneous new games
  25. It seems I was right about Rhea being her name in English, it certainly fits the "motherly" and "holy" theme. I wonder if the specific mention of Jeralt means anything, do they have some kind of history together?
