  1. Ok Zoomer. Anywho, yeah it mean. Is it mean to the point that some boomers say it is? Nope.
  2. Yep, they only have Japanese VAs in the game, which as far as I know stayed the same for Encore. But Stand Draug man. How can you call Stand Draug dumb?
  3. I mean, I love TMS, but where's my boi Touma at? This all girls banner kinda sucks, ngl. I'm happy they're finally in, since it's about time, but Touma and the Navarre dude are probably never gonna get in (unless they do some weird banner some other time rounding off the spinoff characters. Touma and Navarre dude, plus Rowan and Lianna. Darius GHB? Sounds pretty good actually). Anyways, mostly underwhelming units. Tsubasa looks pretty fresh, but otherwise it's a solid meh from me. I'm still recovering from trying to get Alfonse and Sharena, so don't really have many to spare, but I'll spend a few to try to get her. This also just makes me wish that TMS was fully English voiced. I enjoy the Japanese voices, but hearing them for the first time in English is just, it's a weird form of catharsis.
  4. My first Fire Emblem was Fates, and the character I resonated the most with is Felicia, if you hadn't already gathered that. I've always had a thing for cute, clumsy people, but a few things made me like Felicia more. She's a genuine hard worker, has a great personality with more layers than the rest of Fates cast (she isn't the deepest character out there, but it's enough for me), and maid is obviously a big plus. She also made me realize that despite thinking it looks terrible in real life, pink hair is the best hair color. She's also not a half-bad unit. She's technically a prepromote (hey look at me, avoiding pitfalls), pretty good with staves, and daggers are a neat weapons. Obviously you should reclass her, but I didn't think she'd be good in any other class, at least in my original playthrough. Just a fun unit overall. I've moved beyond Fates, and most of what I originally liked about it has faded upon playing other entries that do what it set out to do better, but the one thing that still gleams in the night sky is Felicia, and some of Conquest's map design. But more importantly Felicia.
  5. There's a personal few I like that you don't have included Mia x Rhys - They've got a support in FE9, and a base conversation or two together in FE10. Plus they've got a nice dynamic, feels very fitting, might be canon, I forget. Zelgius x Michiah - Plenty of in-game interactions, Zelgius goes out of his way for her, plus they're both branded so they've got that going on. Leanne x Tibarn - Not sure if this is in game, but it feels pretty canon. Both are members of bird tribes, and very important members of them. Tibarn is shown to care a lot about Leanne. Nailah x Rafiel - Another one that is heavily suggested in game, but I forget if it's actually canon. They're practically always together, so it's fitting. Boyd x Nephenee - Bit of a personal one, but I think it's very fitting. Both have a grassroots nature thing going on, and I think them marrying and Boyd going to work on a farm is sweet. Lastly, Jill x Zihark - They have a few battle conversations in this game if I recall, and I like their dynamic.
  6. Here's how I think it's gonna go down. At the midterm standings reveal, we're gonna have something akin to Males: 1. Dimitri 2. Marth 3. Claude 4. Chrom I'm guess it's gonna go like this at the midterm based on a few things. Dimitri is very popular, practically a shoe-in at this point. Marth, despite having recently gotten an alt, still has many fans salty over that CYL3 loss. Plus with all the 3H characters having votes split amongst them, they'll slightly impede each other, which is why I say Claude is lower than Marth. I slap Chrom on there mainly since I think his recent addition to Smash and the fact that Awakening hasn't had much love is going to boost him up a fair bit. As for the Females, Females: 1. Bernadetta 2. Edelgard 3. Anna 4. Eirika Alright I know this one is a little odd, but stick with me here. Edelgard is a lord, and extremely popular, but I've personally found, and last I checked the polls also said that Bernie is the most popular 3H character. She also has a rabid fanbase (nothing against y'all, it's just a fact) since she hasn't gotten into the game yet, so I think they'll come out in droves to vote for her. Edelgard is up there because, she's obviously gonna get there in some way. Anna is still high due to the her not having much, but her recently getting an alt will dull the "Anna has gotten nothing" narrative. She's still very popular, and if IS finally has it so all characters are combined then I think she'll make it. Then again, if IS does that then the polls will all be very messed up, so if they keep them split then Anna will probably not reach number one or two by midterms. Eirika is there, but Azura is also possible. As for the final results, that's a bit more variable. Males have two possible results in my eyes. Possibility 1 1. Marth 2. Dimitri 3, Claude Possibility 2 1. Dimitri 2. Claude 3. Marth Upon seeing the Midterm results, Dimitri fans might become complacent, meanwhile Claude fans will become spurred on. Marth fans have already learned what happens when you become complacent, so they will keep voting. Dimitri will have a nice enough cushion of votes to stay in the Top 2, but Marth might be able to overtake him. The Dimitri voters might also help Claude out, so it's very possible. Females basically have one possibility in my mind. 1. Bernadetta 2. Anna I just don't see Bernie falling from the Number one spot, and I think it's possible that the Anna train from seeing how close she is will result in her barely beating out Edelgard. As for the overall final top 10, I think y'all are missing the fact that we have 3 new female Heroes OCs. I'd put good money of either Peony or Plumera making top 10, especially with the "Fairy of Lewd Dreams" comment making Plumera basically the new Camilla-esc character. Thorr will likely make top 20. The love that Judgral has gotten this year may dull their fans, which may keep Sigurd and Seliph out of the Top 10. Reinhardt's meme status is practically gone, so he'll be lucky for Top 20. Lif is going to stay in Top 10, I'm gonna guess spot 8 unless IS release a banner with him, which will dull the support. The Byleths are probably gonna replace Robin/Corrin. Whoever the least popular character was last year is probably going to go up about 200 places. And lastly there's going to be some other brand new weird meme option IS adds which is going to make top 100.
  7. Heck yeah man, Kilts are awesome. They're like skirts, but manlier and more practical.
  8. Jesus, it's been that long? It kinda would seem like we're in for a Fates banner sometime soon then.
  9. I mean, I like these characters, but none scream "I NEED THIS" to me. I'll probably just use the free summons on trying to get Larcie since her mother still evades me, and leave it there. On a side note, when was the last time Fates/Awakening got a new banner? Kinda feels like we haven't gotten like, any of them in the past year.
  10. When I went to see it about a week ago with my father, we both thoroughly enjoyed it. We both also will probably not watch it again in the next 10 years. It's a good popcorn flick, like most of JJ's movies. The issue comes when you dig deeper, which if this were like, Mission Impossible, you wouldn't do because those movies are just pure popcorn flicks. Star Wars is just more than that. It's been built up to be more than that. The sheer scope of the EU proves that. So most of the time you expect more with a Star Wars movie. I feel that The Last Jedi was so close to reaching that, it just had a few key fumbles with it that completely screwed it over in the long run. If Rian Johnson had been writing the entire trilogy, or if JJ had been writing the entire trilogy, OR IF THERE WAS A PLAN FOR THE ENTIRE TRILOGY, then we probably wouldn't be in this state right now. Except you do still have your nobody Jedi, kinda. Finn, who was hinted at being Force sensitive, is an absolute nobody. If his arc wasn't screwed in TLJ, and ROTS, then I feel both sides of the fanbase would've been appeased. We could've had a very interesting story about how one girl seeks to cleanse her blood line of evil, and how one boy journeys through the force with no guidance and no connection to another big family. It sounds super interesting actually. And that's what annoys me most this new trilogy, the missed potential. The Force Awakens, as safe and similar as it was, opened so much up for these movies. There were plenty of plot threads hanging, and plenty of interesting routes to take them in. But then Rian comes in, resolves a few of them, then adds a few of his own, except he ignores some of the other plot threads. And that's really the issue, too much on the plate for anyone to handle. And you can see it in ROTS, most prominently imo, with the Knights of Ren. In TFA, it's supposed to be this big deal that Ben became one of the Knights of Ren, and that they're this super cool evil force that's hyper powerful. And in ROTS, since they got no development in TLJ, they just kinda feel doofy. They sorta chase our main cast around, except they never find them. And then Ben comes in and solos all of them. It's all, very anticlimactic. Technically, in the 2003 tv series Clone Wars (The Samurai Jack one, not the one getting a 7th season), Mace Windu does use the Force on General Grevious. We also see it used multiple times on him, although it's mainly only force push. Windu force grips his midsection, crushing it onto itself. I'm pretty sure that's why he coughs a lot in Episode 3, although it might just be something he does a lot in general. I like to think that you aren't able to use the force on Grevious due to his fighting style. It's a very fast, powerful style focused on overwhelming opponents, so maybe since he takes on so many lesser Jedi, they just aren't able to use the force fast enough, or at all in able to grab him. That's mostly headcanon, and while I could point to some scenes that I'd use to support said headcanon, it's fair to not agree with it. Plus like, half the times they were shown to die, they probably would've survived regardless. Kylo gets stabbed by Rey with the lightsaber, except it isn't really through any major organs that would lead to him dying immediately. He could feasibly have made it back to a ship, and just use the magic healing juice of bacta. Lightsabers canonically cauterize wounds due to their heat, so it wouldn't be bleeding too much, plus he could use the force to stay alive. Vader could stay alive without his suit for hours just using the force (although that might be EU now) Kylo falling into the pit is like, of course he's gonna survive. Since when has falling been an issue for force users? They are shown to jump extreme distances using the force, so it was pretty apparent imo that he wasn't gonna die. The Rey one, yeah I dunno. Force transferal of remaining life force? Is that a thing? I'm fine with people being annoyed at this one, it is kinda an asspull. Eh, yes and no. The real importance of the last two movies was more character development, or at least that was the point in TLJ. It does kinda invalidate the main conflict of TFA, that is true, but The Last Jedi was mainly a very small-scale combat movie. While it illustrates the size of the resistance, it doesn't do so for The First Order. Although all the character development from TLJ is kinda ignored, so maybe you're onto something
  11. I've never tried accost on a primarily ranged unit, so I can't tell you how that will play out, although Tanya isn't exactly known for bulk or dodging ability in my experience, so keep that in mind. Against Ballista and Seige tomes, she'll probably get shredded. Then again, 4 attacks might be useful Giving it to Halvan will basically just create a better Dagdar. If you like Dagdar and his utility, then giving it to Halvan is a good idea. If you find Dagdar's utility to be not that good, or if your Halvan isn't growing that well, then it's probably not a good idea. Salem is a tome/staff unit. Generally it's a very bad idea to give accost to these units due to how squishy they are and the weapons they use. Salem will eventually just become another Staff bot if you keep using him, which he is very good at, but giving him accost is a bit of a waste.
  12. First of all, how did you kill Galzus? That man is practically invincible. But yeah, he wouldn't have appeared in chapter 24, since he was killed.
  13. Yeah, if you kill her in chapter 5, you can't recruit her. The game really presumes that you won't kill her, so that's why the line is there. And like, it just kinda seems implied that if you kill a character, you can't recruit them later. Regardless of what the game says, since this is Thracia, Kaga is out to get you. Don't trust a single word that man typed. The line also might've been a slight mistranslation, so you could ask around about that.
  14. I'm sorry, maybe I'm not understanding this, but what are you on about? There are route splits, but none of them change the roster or divide the cast. Once a unit joins, they're joined for good. Unless you're referring to Lyn mode? But all of those characters come back in Eliwood and Hector mode. You don't need 3 groups, because the cast isn't separated like that. And while there are some small route splits, and by small I mean, literally one chapter depending on your lord's level, your group isn't split up, it only decides whether or not you get Wallace from Lyn's mode or Geitz. The cast never splits up, you can always use the units that you have recruited as long as they don't die. This isn't Radiant Dawn. Also if your "Longest Playthrough" didn't even reach Lyn's return, then I really don't think you can understand the intricacies of this game. It just kinda seems like you're basing your opinions on these proposed changes, based on other FE games, not on FE7. Granted, they are some neat ideas I'd like to see, since it'd be interesting to see in action, but it just seems that you don't understand the game at hand.
  15. The Japanese VA for Kirby, one Makiko Ohmoto, is also the voice actress for Lyn, Nephenee, and Viridi. More notably though, she is the voice for Sayaka Maizono. But even MORE importantly, she voices a random dude named Jeff in an anime I've never heard of in my life.
  16. Welp, guess I've gotta give a prompt then. Also I feel kinda called out Anon, since that was literally just a comedic short I hammered out in an evening with a tight framework that I'd crafted in like 10 minutes. Anyways, the prompt this time is fairly simple. Two people drifted apart in some manner, could be over years naturally, could've been with one big blow-up. Regardless, something forces them back together. What happens?
  17. Yeah, sorry about that lol. I've only had the time to read your story, and normally I try to give everyone critique at once. But since you asked, I'll just give you what thoughts I remember from like 5 days ago. Eh, it was alright. Good from a writing standpoint, didn't have too many issues. I personally would've added a little header saying like "3 weeks ago" above the flashback and "Present time" for the regular stuff for the first time we see them, since it took me a little bit to realize that's how the italizized vs regular text looked. My main thing is that I wasn't really grabbed by the plot. It's probably because I've only heard of the show once, and thought it looked boring so clicked away. By the end I was somewhat interested, but then it ended. Sorry that wasn't very detailed.
  18. I'm just, kinda trying to pretend it doesn't exist because the sheer fact they powercrept Distant Counter confounds me to my core. Well, I suppose it was going to happen eventually, but it still feels too soon. Besides that elephant in the room, I like this banner. Anna looks like a good debuffer, Selkie looks like good fodder, Lethe I could care less about, and Alphonse I need simply for that gorgeous art, and also so I can finally have a duo unit. I will be waiting to see who the mythic is/who is on that banner before investing into this banner though.
  19. My lord that is some beautiful artwork. Also Anna alt, finally. Probably won't diminish her CYL4 results enough for her to lose, but you never know. Seem to be very res-based characters this go around. Interesting. Hope they have some good skills to go with the art.
  20. Ah, thanks. Hopefully the Steam Winter sale will bring that down a bit Sorry for being a bit out of the loop, but what's this controversy with Dangen I keep seeing vague mentions to?
  21. I don't fault you for that, my entire entry is basically just "reference obscure Star Wars junk with a loose theme around a Christmas-esc event". I'd stagger to call it a movie, it's more like a TV special. A movie would have an actual budget, the only thing the special has going for it is that they have all the original actors. Yeah, that's why I decided to add Boba to the story. Just seemed fitting with all the Life Day stuff.
  22. I wrote this in like an hour, so yeah, it's not the best. But hey, gotta get into the holiday spirit. I originally had a much grander idea for this story that, didn't pan out. Finals also took a lot out me. Anyways, without further adieu, Solo: A Star Wars Holiday Story Word Count: 1410
  23. Sure, but is the video surrounding the song not an extension of the song itself? There are many songs where the video is the main point. A recent (recent as in, like, the past 5 years) example is Childish Gambino's "This is America", where most of the symbolism and meat of the song was found in the video. As long as the inspiration comes from the link that was shared, then I see no issue in the interpretation. To compound on this, Anon has already stated what he meant. That's it, you have to be inspired, period. He specifically said you don't have to take inspiration from the song.
