  1. If you really think about it, they're all Hector in one way or another.
  2. 1. Hector 2. Hector 3. Hector 4. Hector 5. Hector 6. Hector 7. Hector 8. Hector 9. Hector 10. Lex 11. Hector 11. Hector 12. Uther 13. Hector 14. Hector 15. Lilina Any thoughts?
  3. "On the plains of Sacae, the source of your pride where kinsmen and family tragically died." Why do I get the feeling Sain would get slapped for saying that?
  4. I like that one. I think that'd be one of the best changes they could make to him/her. I mean, by the end of the day, he/she'd end up more as a Draconic Eliwood, but it's a step in the right direction. Another change I'd suggest is...well, personality traits that make Corrin stick out more. Like, instead of being a lord who fights despite his/her distaste for violence, which can sum up most of the lords in this series, just make Corrin a lord who sees war as an opportunity. A chance to improve his/her skills in combat, to protect those he/she cares about, constantly shooting to be stronger and stronger to be able fight in any and every battle ever, with a sort of, "I do it, so you don't have to" mentality. That, at least would be something unique to me. Oh, and another other change I'd suggest is to make him/her an Axe Lord, but that's a change on the default class, not character. Still, that'd a be good idea too.
  5. It's better to go about this situation on a case-by-case basis. Microtransactions have been quite the plague on the games industry given how companies like EA, Warner Bros, and Activision adore them and have been utilizing them for their games for quite some time now. Star Wars Battlefront, (The bad ones) Shadow of War, and Call of Duty are all games that have been more of less suffering thanks to these particular practices. (Seriously, you can't throw Supply Drops in Call of Duty 4, make World War 2's matchmaking base itself off of microtransactions, and NOT piss people off, let alone loot box Shadow of War or Star Wars Battlefront up.) The only times I could ever really pardon microtransactions and loot boxes are in free-to-play games. However, on that same vein, there could exist games like Club Penguin Island that, while being free, you might as well call pay to play because you pretty much can't do jack unless you pay up. There are also rather...questionable microtransactions, like the premium ammo in World of Tanks. Microtransactions that only affect cosmetics tend to be the place where it gets rather defensive. With the exact same dialogues ready for you every time you wanna bash microtransactions in a premium game. "Oh, it's just cosmetic, you don't have to buy it." Oh, it's optional, you don't have to buy it." Mark these words. Give publishers an inch, and they'll take a ten mile hike, to your wallets. So they can they steal your money. Like they always do. Yes, you can just easily decide not to buy the microtransactions and all that jazz, however publishers can also just as easily choose to, you know, not put microtransactions in their premium games. That's a thing that can happen. It just doesn't happen because they, you know, adore the stuff. I tend to see the "AAA" publishers as Two-Bit Nergals. Their journey started out with good intentions, but in the end, they were seduced by not power, but the chance of making all the money, making some money instead of all it is a failure to them, just ask all the poor unfortunate souls who now have to find work elsewhere thanks to EA's killing off of Visceral, a studio that was once famed for creating Dead Space. Either them, or really anyone who worked at a game company EA killed. (Seriously, EA is kind of a serial killer at this point.) So closing statements. Keep a close eye on what's going on with them microtransactions, and don't sign a contract with EA, that one may be less relevant to the topic, despite EA's contribution to microtransactions, but still. Just don't.
  6. I'm sorry, but all I've got for this topic is this. Casual Mode is an option, Classic mode, is also an option, you're allowed to choose right away. If you don't like one mode, then don't play it, simple. No need to force everyone to one mode just because of new features and modes that make the game easier, that's just Nintendo making it so everyone can enjoy the game instead of one audience. Same deal goes for the Mario Kart 8 Deluxe controversy. By the end of the day, the new features are merely options, not necessities. Nobody's forcing you to rewind a turn, nobody's forcing you to play on Casual or Classic, not even elitists.
  7. Chances are, Echoes will bring in some things to introduce newcomers, like a tutorial of sorts. My hopes are that whatever tutorial Echoes has for us, it can either be skipped or won't be as long or annoying as FE7's tutorial. While the story about Lyn was nice and all, I just wish I didn't have to deal with text boxes appearing out of nowhere filling me in on what I already know at this point. Hopefully they DON'T bring Phoenix mode back. Casual mode, while I don't like, I understand its existence. It can ease new players in better than Classic due to fallen units returning. While the game still punishes you for your mistakes, it doesn't take them away forever, so it gives new players a nice little learning experience. Phoenix mode spits on learning by bringing the units right back after falling, as if they only suffered flesh wounds and were pretending they were hurt to trick you. You don't learn anything if you don't lose anything. Honestly, Fire Emblem might be putting itself in a tough pickle here, but hopefully things go more swimmingly than it sort of looks here.

    FE Recolor

    So, I've been dealing with a problem regarding this program. I have .NET Framework 4 as it's already installed, but when I boot up FE Recolor, I'm met with a blank screen with a palette number being 0 and an "Add" button at the bottom. I don't know what's going on.
  9. Welcome to the Forest, Solo. I can get the whole shy deal too, I used to look at the front page of Serenes frequently for Fire Emblem news, until I decided to make an account on the forums here and introduce myself. Enjoy yourself, and I hope I've helped in settling you in here.
  10. I'd say several years, starting with Halo 3.
  11. Well, I also happened to have gotten a Soldier Kent, an Eliwood Lord Fiora, and a Berserker Louise to name a few.
  12. Hello, and welcome to my little introduction, I am Sir Volt and I have been playing Fire Emblem for months now, I started with Blazing Sword, and somewhere down the line of playing Fire Emblem games, I fell in love with this series. I've also randomized Fire Emblem 7 and fell in love with my Archer Priscilla, who I'd promote and field in the endgame. I also play the Souls Series. (Demon's Souls, Dark Souls, Dark Souls 2, etc.) I do have a history with the Halo and Call of Duty series too, so feel free to talk to me about that if you wish. I hope to get to meet all of you lovely people here on Serenes and more, I look forward to it.
