  1. Squirtle/Pikachu. Holding off on actually playing for a while, though. Still playing MegaMan Zero/ZX Legacy Collection, then I'm gonna do a 3H run (VW, to get the Claude/Balthus and Hilda/Balthus supports), then I'll play this.
  2. Brief tangent on the "Church bad" thing: did anyone else feel like the Hilda/Seteth C support came across kinda cult-like? It was the first time I ever actually thought bad about Seteth (Mark Whitten nailed the delivery, though).
  3. So some of the boards have been having a problem regarding new users bumping topics that haven't had posts in 6 or more months, and basically saying nothing useful. Oftentimes the topic was asking about help with a level or boss in a game, having long since gotten the help they need, and then being bumped anyway. Or bringing up a long dead discussion and responding with fluff. And every time, a moderator inevitably has to take time out of their day to close it. I was thinking it would save you guys time if there was a way to autolock topics that haven't been posted in, say in 2-3 months.
  4. That Edelgard would be overshadowed by Dimitri and Claude. She turns out to literally be the driving force of the entire plot.
  5. If you don't like any of the characters in the game, then why the fuck are you here? Go to a different thread.
  6. You know what? I'll tell you what: you do one simple thing for me, and I'll change my vote to Sylvain. How's that sound? All you have to do is pay off my student loans and credit card debt. Then I'll vote for Sylvain.
  7. You still don't seem to understand that they're mocking you for asking people to change their votes. You're better off staying silent on the matter. Anyway, looks like Ingrid and Dedue are next on the chopping block after Sylvain. Given how close the other 5 are, that's when things will get interesting.
  8. I understand where both Rodrigue and Felix are coming from. Rodrigue, in his grief, is desperate to find meaning in his son's death. Knowing that he died a knight's death is about all he has left. But when he said that to Felix, who was like 8 or so at the time, what Felix apparently heard was "Your brother dying was a good thing." Felix clearly idolized his brother, and hearing that his job was basically to die would've ruined him. I'd have more sympathy for Gilbert if it wasn't for the fact that we see him interact with Annette in the supports. She's literally BEGGING him to come home, saying that she and her mother don't blame him for what happened to the king, and she's literally spent years looking for him. But he's all "but muh guilt" and fucks off. He's so busying worrying about his failure as a knight that he completely ignores his failure as a husband and father.
  9. Still going Constance. I get what people don't like about her, though: if you didn't have the patience for Bernie and Marianne, you wouldn't have the patience for her, either. Even if you did, you might end up going, "Ugh, another one?" But I still like her.
  10. While I'm positive Dimitri will win, I'm surprised that it's mostly even so far. Felix for me.
  11. That's fair. Unfortunately the impression I got was that having to protect Rhea forced Dimitri into a more defensive position than the other routes, so making him appear would be tougher. Not impossible, but tougher.
  12. That's kind of the thing with Dimitri: their relationship is incredibly one-sided. Dimitri clearly had a HUGE crush on Edelgard that continued right to the end of the story (those feelings being warped into hate made Feral Dimitri all the more dangerous). Edelgard, however, quickly got over it, and while she does call him her first love, she doesn't even remember that it was Dimitri. That's where the whole "Your obsession with me is appalling" line comes from: Dimitri basically made Edelgard his whole world, and yet to her, he's just an ex-crush.
  13. One thing I would've liked to see (if they'd had the time and budget) was more unique designs for Demonic Beasts. Granted most of the ones we see use Artificial Crest Stones, but even so, Miklan (using the stone of Gautier's Crest) and Maurice don't look all that different from the generic ones.
  14. I'm excited, but I'm still playing Mega Man Zero/ZX Legacy Collection, so it'll be a while before I actually play it.
  15. I believe so. In Edelgard's support with Byleth when explaining her backstory, she said most of her siblings had no Crest, meaning that at least one did.
  16. It's not clear. At all. He could've signaled to his men to flee while he held off the enemy, in which case they would still be fighting him and just kill him normally. An execution is a more formal affair.
  17. Yeah, some of my favorite moments of her are when she gets to be a little silly. The thing with the portrait, doing impressions, wanting tons of sweets, etc. It's those fleeting moments where she gets to take a break from being the Flame Emperor and just be, well, Edelgard. Sorry, trying not to take up too much of this topic gushing about her.
  18. I'm sure it was intended. I forget were I read it, but supposedly Edelgard was the first character they designed, so they would've had lots of time to incorporate symbolism in her design. And yeah, I gotta admit her being cute did play some factor in my liking her. Agreeing with her beliefs got me to stay, but her (and the other BE girls) being cute got me in the door in the first place.
  19. I will never understand shipping Dimitri and Edelgard. I wouldn't shame anyone for it, but their relationship would absolutely 100% be doomed to failure, and I feel like if you like either of them, you wouldn't put them through that heartbreak. I guess most of my ships would be unpopular just because I generally lean towards straight ships, and I know gay pairings are super popular, seemingly to the point of eclipsing everything else. But the specific one I'll point to is CasparXPetra. A scrappy guy like him should absolutely be with a warrior chick like her, and I like how they learn to overcome their insecurities about their fathers being enemies to get together.
  20. The problem with it is that in CS, Rhea willingly offers up all the information about Sitri to Byleth, but in the main game, everything about Sitri was a closely guarded secret, even from Seteth. There's no reason for Seteth to be suspicious of Rhea after Chapter 10 otherwise, and no need for the infodump in SS.
  21. That's why real politicians have advisors: to get ideas they may not have thought of themselves. As for Crests themselves, their value is a self-perpetuating cycle: people value them because they give rank, and people with them gain rank because they are valued. Cut off that rank, and they will no longer be valued. Yes, those with Crests will fight tooth and nail to keep their power, but they no longer have inherent power over everyone else just for having Crests.
  22. I thought this was a serious discussion. Why you trolling? And the telescope, don't forget the telescope. Rhea certainly wouldn't want people to say "Hey! You said the goddess was watching from above! I don't see any goddess up there! What else have you been lying about?"
