  1. Having unlocked the Golden Route on my third (and final) playthrough, it felt satisfying, if not too idealistic.
  2. On that, they did a good job. It was one pivotal moment in what felt like (almost) half-season of book-ending work written into the overarching plot. The endings of Carmilla's sisters felt a touch melodramatic (not just Lenore). Maybe that was written on purpose to say that "hey, not everyone had a happy ending," I don't know.
  3. Your team will go through the battle as you normally would, only they'd be AI-controlled (they won't have an "immediate finish" like in other gacha games). If your team lost, you'd be able to field a new set of characters in modes like Tempest Trials+, otherwise it'll just go to Game Over where you can replay the last turn or give up.
  4. I normally ask the streamer if he'd want some assistance, and try to keep the tips spoiler-free, but depending on the game, that may be easier said than done.
  5. Played it, and I recall Maiko's weapons looking too long to be considered daggers. They're practically short swords. And Gangrel is listed as a Myrmidon on TMS #FE's entry in FE Fandom although one of his attacks is Axe-type.
  6. You're right. No thieves/dagger-wielders are present in TMS #FE. Not even the villains IIRC. Off the top of my head, these were the weapon types for the heroes. Itsuki/Chrom: Sword Tsubasa/Caeda: Lance Touma/Cain: Lance Kiria/Tharja: Rod Mamori/Draug: Axe Eleanora/Virion: Bow Yashiro/Navarre: Sword

  8. Okay, this has the possibility to sound incredibly reductionist, but you did force the hand that is about to be dealt. You're saying that it's not valid to criticize fanservice-y anime/manga because the kinds of thrills they give, however cheap, are viewed as de rigueur for the genre they represent? Do you realize the slope you're casually inviting everyone and his mother to bobsled on, luge in tow, with reckless fuck abandon, is inherently screwed up nine ways to Sunday?
  9. Thanks for saying what was on my mind. I've (successfully up to now, I think?) avoided replying to these kinds of threads for various reasons, chief among them the enormous amount of hair-splitting and delving into minutiae about what makes a game dislikable on objective terms. I'd like to establish that the proposition is impossible to achieve, because gamers are free to like/dislike games/concepts/plots/whatever on whichever terms they see fit. A trivial thing for one is a dealbreaker for another, and that is fine. Unless you're out to convince someone to see merits where they're seeing lemons, that's when disappointment comes. I adopt this credo for any game/anime/book I come across. And I save neurons doing so. *italics mine* If by real discussion you mean looking for imaginary objective criticisms, then let's can all pretense and hop on our individual flights of fancy.
  10. I'll probably go for Seiros, and spark for Legendary Brave Edelgard, given that I don't have the former, and the latter I am working for max merge on at some point (she's now at +5).
  11. The first few questions will have you describe, in 250 characters or less, what you like/don't like about the demo. The remaining questions dealt with whether or not you picked up the new characters and used them in-battle, how long were the battles for you, and if you play other SRPGs/Tactical RPGs. Weird that the survey didn't have anything like a notification that you were done with it, though. It just routed you back to the Nintendo website.
  12. Good: Project Triangle (REALLY expecting a name change somewhere down the line, more so than Octopath, which made more sense in hindsight) Mana/SaGa remakes Pyra and Mythra in Smash Bad: DC Supergirls (really?) Fall Guys (though a great party game, I just don't care for it) The Winner: my wallet (I don't have to spend for much in the coming months!)
  13. *rim shot* Yeah, the French band has an upcoming album in April. Killing time before the Direct by working
  14. "Unity" and "moving on" seem to be the buzzwords among the GOP faithful, as evidenced by David Schoen calling the "streamlined" impeachment process that the House put forth as "pure, raw, misguided partisanship." That is fucking rich coming from the idiots.
  15. https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/2021/02/09/trump-impeachment-live-updates/ Republicans not paying attention while the video of the Capitol siege is being played reminds me of the Nuremberg trials where some of the major war criminals were bored when the documentary videos of what happened in the concentration camps were shown.
  16. No, I don't wear glasses. Do you practice your faith/belief system?
  17. Norwegian Bokmål (lit, "book tongue") would be closer to Old Norse, at least closer to it than modern Norwegian (Nynorsk) would be. Both are officially recognized, but you mostly see and hear everyday people relying on Nynorsk than Bokmål for writing and speaking. And yes, it all goes back to the Edda: Þjálfi is one of Thor's servants.
  18. I'd say it's almost correct. Old Norse and modern Norwegian are funny in that the letter j, more often than not, gets silenced (Hjelvik, for instance, gets pronounced as if the "j" isn't there).
  19. I welcome Gatekeeper as a literal blank slate that IS can work off of. The turn of events is contentious for some, but I don't find anything incidental to a noisy dispute. Loved that vignette, too @Mercakete
  20. I got Dheginsea. Slick Fighter/Sturdy Stance fodder, no complaints.
