  1. Hey so I know for Radiant Dawn, Easy mode is actually Normal mode and Normal mode is hard mode. Because they just labeled them like that for funsies, instead of creative an actual easy mode like PoR did. SO with all that said, is PoR's hard mode similar to RD's easy mode? Because Radiant Dawn I believe is considered to be a hard game by most people. So I was wondering if PoR hard mode is more difficult or about the same as RD's Easy mode. As for me personally, despite LOVING those games I've actually only played them both once. I did normal on PoR and thought it was quite challenging. But I was also fairly new to Fire Emblem when I played it so I don't know if I just sucked back then.
  2. Sorry to hear that things have been difficult lately. I hope everything goes swimmingly for you all from here on out (regarding personal lives and the translation). I know there's people looking forward to this project so you have a lot of support from here! If you guys needed any extra hands I'm sure there are a ton of talented people on this site who could do a numerous amount of things. Like if you directly translated some sentences and you needed some of them to be polished up, I could totally help take some of the load off. I'd even do any necessary homework if needed be. But yeah, I'm sure there are a bunch of other people who could help contribute in others ways too. It's for a good cause. Regardless, wishing y'all the best!
  3. Unpopular opinion, but in FE12 he gives me creepy vibes. Like the way he talks about his sister in that game always creeped me out. Like he wants to be more than her brother. I was just like, "Dude you are weird. Get some help." He made me uncomfortable. But I know I'm probably the only one seeing that subtext.
  4. That's so awesome! I just saw Kotaku made an article about it as well! I would post a link but I'm super rusty regarding forums and I'd make everything a horrendous mess.
  5. I'm thinking of it as Fates starting everything. Yes it's only 1 to 1 which is problematic in itself but coming from Awakening's 0 it's a big deal. It had equal representation to which I think was fantastic. No favourites and no gay dudes are gross to be found in that game. Now since Three Houses is after Fates it really should be improving upon Fates' ground work. But it's really not doing that. It makes me think that next game is gonna have like 10 female options and 0 for dudes. I'm just really tired of the whole, "it's okay to be gay as long as you like chicks" thing I've been hearing from "allies" Oh also only 3F in three houses? Did I miss some new info? What the hell happened? For me, I feel like I've been doing an alright job making it clear that I'm not hating on the female pairings. I'm very clearly jealous of course but that doesn't mean I want less of those. That would be terrible. And also super counter productive like seriously could you imagine how stupid it would be if someone complained about the lack of male pairings and demanded less female ones. Like that's rude dude. For me at least I would just like to have the same treatment. Also I'd like to feel like the world doesn't hate me when I play a video game. Video games are happy time and I'm too busy with student loans to get horribly depressed by something that should be causing me joy.
  6. I may tipped off Kotaku about this and pitched an idea to Polygon... I'd love to contact Nintendo and Intelligent Systems but the former only wants to talk to you if you have technical difficulties and not about problem with game contents. The later only has contact info in Japanese and I don't want to send my thoughts about this to the wrong places. I felt like Fates was a great step. So I was happy with that. It had *SHOCK* equal representation. 1 for guys and 1 for girls. It could have been better but it wasn't bad. I wasn't okay with, "Zero" because I don't want to date 40 year olds. But NoA aged him the hell down as Niles, all because of writing and casting a voice actor that sounds 20-something. Plus I think I heard that their original S-Support was basically saying something like, "Why am I cursed to like a man" or something along the lines of that. I don't know I read it briefly before feeling super uncomfortable. But basically NoA changed their S-Support to make it feel like a normal. And I'm really surprised NoA didn't see this and think about how us westerners would take the news. Dude as someone who bought the Echoes DLC as soon as I had the game, I'm not buying the Three Houses one even once I get out of my depressed state and focus on the minimal attention Three Houses places on marriage. Also seriously a lot of chicks love gay dudes (and I love them might I add), and all they want is guys loving each other yet they too are constantly denied that. Before they announced this sorry state of affairs I looked at everyone and thought it'd be great if Dimitri was the bi option because everyone everywhere has a hard time thinking about guys like being gay. But I thought they'd make it Claude and everyone wanted it to be Claude so I was like, he's not for me but I'm happy just knowing that he's popular and will probably be bi. Holy hell nope. Even if they made Claude bi now I still wouldn't get with him but I'd be so happy that so many could have their dreams come too. I think if you like guys you're mostly just shoved in a corner and forgotten about. So just having a popular character out there representing people who like dudes would more than enough make up for my own personal lack of options. But I guess I can't even expect the bare minimum now adays. I think you should always be nice and never do any name calling at all (or death threats). Like I wouldn't be like, "Hey Nintendo and IS you're all *insert vulgar words here*" But I think making your voices heard is an important thing. I feel like gay guys don't want to start a fuss about anything and that's why they're not represented ever. From my life experiences lesbians are the ones who make their voices heard and that's why their representation isn't limited to one second cameos or gay best friends. That's why lesbians get main characters with names and deep relationships. Meanwhile gay dudes look at all the amazing lesbian representation and are just content that gay people are being represented. Yet I think it's lesbians being vocal playing, not all but, a huge factor in why they don't get ignored. I'm sorry everyone for making a large ass post or if I'm being negative at all. I am still clearly upset and while talking about this is overall good, it's something that is very much still upsetting me. I hope everyone forgives me if I'm coming across as douchey.
  7. That's a good idea. I need to just drown myself in a bunch of dude/dude stories until I'm all like, "There are other people in the world that like guys!?" I just need to find those stories. It really sucks though because I bought the game and I really wanted to play it but now every time I look at it I get really depressed. I need a little purge for the time being. Just good happy things for a tiny bit. I know Fire Emblem is doing better than ever, and for a previously neglected franchise I'm so happy for it. But do enough people even care that it's guys that aren't given the gay option? That's what I'm worried about. I'll do what I can to bring the word out there but I can't help feeling that people will hear what I say before shrugging and getting on with their lives. God I seriously hope while they're changing Male Byleth's voice in Three Houses NoA rethink things over and just think, "Maybe it was a bad idea to let there only be 1 gay male option for Byleth. And we should do some localization magic and add some more in to make it equal." But I don't want to get my hopes up and be upset for a 2nd time when that doesn't happen. (Also I'm a little peeved because I've hooked two people on Fire Emblem and now they're for lifers and the least Intelligent Systems could do is throw me a bone) But enough of that sad crap, I need to feel better. Positivity. Positivity.
  8. This news honestly breaks my heart and is giving me really self conscious feelings that I haven't felt in a really long time. Why can't people take relationships between guys seriously? It's stuff like this that really makes me feel less than human. I don't even know what to do.
  9. Not gonna lie, I sorta blew my money on Path of Radiance. I needed it in the case with the booklet and any extra slips of paper that came with it. It was a good decision. But I did that a few years ago so I spent maybe like $125 dollars on it, maybe a bit more with shipping. I feel like I remember the price for that game being insane now, something like past the 200 mark. Also Radiant Dawn I found for a pretty good price, for one containing the booklet and the inserts as well. I think that one had free shipping and was just $85. Which is the price of a Switch game with tax nowadays any way so not too big of a deal. It's so worth it for me because I need them physical. I play FE12 in English but I still bought a Japanese physical copy for my shelf. I know I'm crazy. It's why I'm poor right now. Also I'm Canadian so all those prices I had are for the Canadian dollar. Just for more info.
  10. Thank you! And yes, do whatever you need at any pace you're comfortable with. I'm wishing you the best of luck guys!
  11. Hell yeah! This is such amazing news! I'm so looking forward to this! But yes, I did have one little question about one of Male Kris' lines in his support with Luke. I talked about this on page 15, but basically I was wondering if one specific line of Male Kris' was going to be changed. Anyway, I'm happy this is being worked on again. I'm lovin' all of the updates you've provided so far, to the point where I really believe this would be the best way for my friend to experience FE12 for the first time. Here's me wishing you guys the best!
  12. Thank you for saying you like their friendship. I feel like everyone is so focused on them being a couple that their wonderful friendship is often overlooked. I see this happen more with dude pairings than female ones. I feel like it's because it's so rare to see guys together in media so people do shit like that to fill the void. I don't really like turning male friends into ships because I feel like if it happens too often it pisses people off, so when there is actual evidence to support a dude pairing people jump the gun to "they're just friends" even when there's good evidence to show that they very well may not be just friends. Like for me Eliwood and Hector are clearly just good friends, and any ships between them I'd find weird. Ike and Soren on the other hand, I don't think someone should immediately shut that down because there is good evidence for it. So yeah, just my thoughts on that.
  13. How the story starts so small in PoR and then by the end of RD it's massive. The wonderful characters. The music. The Ike x Soren. The fact that I played this game when I going through a hard time in my life. All of those are good.
  14. Okay so I haven't gotten any of the kids in Fates because I'm not interesting in recruiting the kids in that game, but everything I've seen of Soleil I'm not a big fan of. Like, she just seems like a character who sexually harasses women but it's okay because she's a woman herself. Like, no it's not okay. I liked Florina and Hector because I felt like she needed a man. Also I'm all for Eliwood x Lynn and I needed Hector to marry someone. I also really felt like Florina needed some closure to her being all weird around men, because guys are so sweet and lovely. Now... Hector probably wouldn't be my first choice for Florina but uh... hell that's the one she picked apparently, because she can't marry anyone else. Now for me, I always hate the whole, "You have a choice, but we picked this one for you." So I really hate Eliwood x Ninian, I also feel like this does nothing for Ninian's personal growth. I also really hate Chrom and Sumia. Others would be Hector x Lynn because I feel like they'd get divorced so fast. Sorry guys but Ike x Elincia is something I'll pass on too (she also marries Geoffrey just sayin', which I feel like everyone forgets), and I'm totally not a fan of Lucina and Robin either, even if I did play as male Robin just... no thanks. I'd actually probably marry him to Anna if I did play as him. I actually like that a lot, despite not looking at their supports or anything relating to them.
  15. If any details on how to unlock Roy are found, I'd love to see it. I need him.
  16. I'm happy I'm not alone on that at least! I seriously just skipped the Robin amiibo because it felt pointless to me. I was sorta hoping maybe we'd get a Female Robin one for Warriors but... I don't know! Maybe we'll get one for Ultimate? Maybe? I really hope so. I love that woman, she's like my girl crush.
  17. I like Clarine but yeah that's basically her character. No one can be Serra. I wasn't gonna add him but yeah Matthis for me too. I felt like he was unoffensive in SD but the way he talked about Lena in FE12 creeped me out. Shinon is probably my least favourite. He's such a rude mean person, and I don't even care if he has a soft spot for Rolf. Rolf is okay at best, bootleg Wolt at worst. Ninian, I don't even know if I hate her because I she constantly annoys the hell out of me, or just because it's fun hating on her. It's weird, she's actually grown on me now, especially because I never pair her with Eliwood so she gets some form of character development. She starts the game being weak and annoying and ends it being more mature and taking some form of responsibility. Instead of her ending with Eliwood where she starts the game being weak and ends up marrying the dude she likes. But yeah, when I play FE7 with my friends, we never pair her with Eliwood and we have such a blast making fun of her. I guess that's endeared her to me a bit. Shinon is seriously the worst though.
  18. Yeah, I'm at least hoping they'd add them to the DLC pack as an extra. Like, you pay for the newcomer but you also get a free Echo just because it's fun. It'd be real nice. I won't be holding breath though. To be honest, the roaster is amazing and I really am more than satisfied with everyone they picked. Excited for more DLC announcements though! I'll be picking up that Fighter Pass when it launches, digitally or maybe physically like Japan got. I'd like a physical one so I could keep it for the game collection.
  19. Yes! And they could have male Morgan for female Robin and female Morgan for Male Robin and EVERYONE would be happy. I was hoping for this, but I sorta figured they just change it to like Robin using Bolganone and the other one without any aid. Making it kinda similar to Palutena's Final Smash actually. But yeah I really don't like how they're using Chrom, just patch that out please. But anyway this is fun so... I didn't like Corrin as DLC. The timing was wrong in North America too because Fates hadn't even come out yet. And I believe Corrin is the reason that people starting really complaining that there was too many Fire Emblem characters. And I'm worried Nintendo has heard that and will be more hesitant to include new FE Characters as either DLC or in potential future installments. I think Corrin would have been better received as a newcomer for Ultimate rather then Smash 4 DLC. I still wish Marth and especially Roy spoke Japanese in Ultimate. I think Ray Chase makes a better Eliwood. They could even have like a special Eng/Jap Switch just for those two. I never liked how Cloud spoke Japanese, he already has an English VA who I believe said he'd totally voice Cloud in Smash. And FF7 was localized right away, unlike Shadow Dragon and the Sword of Light as well as Binding Blade. Make Alph an Echo! Switch out Purple Pikmin for Rock Pikmin and he qualifies. I'd prefer it if Bowser Jr. had alternate colours or clothes instead of having the Kooplings Use Jen Taylor's Melee clips for Peach. She was my favourite and her, "Sweet!" or, "Oh, did I win?" I think are a little more iconic. I've never had a problem with including Clones or Echo Fighters For Ultimate I'd want them to extended the concept of stacking and swapping Echoes to Male/Female characters. I'd love for Female Robin to be displayed like she was default. I know Corrin fans would be happy too. While I'm at it where's my Female Robin amiibo? Female Corrin got one. I want a Female Robin Amiibo. Bayonetta was a fantastic addition to Smash
  20. I'm mixed between Roy's voice. While fighting, I greatly prefer his Japanese voice, but he really didn't sound bad at all during his victory dialogue. It kinda makes me wish they kept his grunts and stuff and just placed in his English VA when he has real dialogue. Sorta similar to Fox in Melee, cause they got his Adventures VA to voice him in Adventure Mode. Anyway, I was wondering about DLC. I know they said that there will be 5 new fighters, but does anyone kinda think, or at least hope, that they'll add bonus echo fighters to that as well? Because I've really been hoping for Jeanne from Bayonetta as an echo fighter.
  21. I'm actually holding my friend off from playing New Mystery of the Emblem until Beta 3 comes out! I think it will be well worth the wait. But I did have some concerns about a specific support conversation between Male Kris and Luke, and I'd be so happy if that was changed before beta 3 was released. It's at the end of their first conversation and Luke is all like, "Don't fall in love with me" and Kris is all like, "I... don't swing that way." I really can't see it being officially localized that way, and I also really don't like that line for an avatar character. Like, if I was to do what the game wants me to and insert myself in there, seeing an in-game me say that really takes me out of the experience. Cause I actually just so happen to swing that way. You know? I hope it's not a big issue or anything, I'd just really like that to be changed. Like Female Kris as a response says, "Oh, I wouldn't worry about that." and I think that line is more vague and can be interpreted in anyway you'd like. I don't know what Male Kris says in the Japanese version, but I think a simple line change like, "Yeah, in your dreams." would work really well, but that's just an example from someone who doesn't know Japanese. So yeah, I am extremely thankful for everyone who's working on this translation, as well as everyone who worked on the original one. I wouldn't be able to experience FE12 to it's full extent without it. And I'm really hoping I'm not bugging anyone by suggesting what I'm suggesting.
  22. And I think it's super unlikely that they'll have Japanese voice options for Marth and Roy, but I can dream. At least I prefer Yuri Lowenthal as Marth more than Ray Chase as Roy, I think Ray Chase would be a perfect Eliwood though! The most I could hope for is a Japanese language option like Melee had. I'd still play in English, but knowing I could hear Jun Fukuyama as Roy anytime I wanted would be comforting. I just care a lot about voice actors in Smash Bros I guess.
  23. Just giving a small little update, I watched a Smash Bros Ultimate video from Nintendo UK's official YouTube. It was a team match of Dark Samus and Ridley vs Chrom and Lucina. And in the match Lucina was using her voice clips from Smash 4. I hope that doesn't change when it's released!
  24. I know, it's ridiculous how crazy they are about region lock on the 3DS. I thought it'd only apply to 3DS games. And I'm sure there'd be a way to do it with an SD card, that's how Project M worked for Smash Bros Brawl. I wish someone would come up with a way to unflip Twilight Princess on Wii with an SD card, but that's me getting carried away! I wish I was smart regarding this stuff, then it'd totally do it myself. But sadly I'm totally clueless. If you can't find any way you can hard patch it I would recommend an R4. If you're only putting one game on there, especially one that's Japanese elusive that you still own a real copy off, I feel like it's morally justified. The only thing with them is that, while they're really easy to take out of the original DS, it's harder to take out on the original 3DS. I have to press it down on the far left side for it to come out. But the original 3DS is still my favourite way to play that game. I don't think I'll ever put it in my New 3DS XL because it feels like you have to push the cartridge in way too far and that's my main handheld so I worry about it. But everything is up to you so do it however you think is best.
  25. Really? Why do you doubt she'd do dub roles ever again? What the hell happened (besides giving birth, I get maternity leave but like leaving forever)? All I really need is for her to be Lucina's voice in this game. She doesn't even need to come back to voice Lucina they can just use her clips from Smash 4. Rachael Lillis has voiced Jigglypuff since the start and they just reused her voice clips from Smash 64. I believe Rachael Lillis even confirmed this on twitter recently. So I'm really really hoping they at least do that. I think they used Ike's new voice actor because both versions of him are suppose to sound different so they'd probably have to get fresh voice clips for that.
