  1. Same as the Rate the Video Game Song Above thread, but with characters. Give 2-5 sentences for each character. Byakuren Hijiri (Touhou)
  2. So, what were some of your most nostalgic experiences with video games? Happy, sad, frustrating, scary (like how Nostalgia Critic and Joshcorcher did for media in general), or funny? Disappointment, even? For me, I have a vendetta against Riku in the original Kingdom Hearts, as he was the one of two reasons I still have not beaten the game today (other than preoccupance with other things). I had trouble with previous bosses (Anti-Sora and Dragon Maleficent in particular), but I have yet to beat him. I expect an easy rematch though, and it will be so satisfying. Other than that, I don’t think I have anything else that was truly profound in terms of emotions.
  3. I've had topics elsewhere in the past (mostly Written Works) but since I'll be compiling all of my stuff in one thread, I figured Concepts would be the best fit. This topic will serve as my Serenes Forest hub of my various projects, ranging from written works (short stories, poems) to game concepts. Feedback on any of these things is appreciated! Everything here will be found on my Google Drive since there is a lot of content, or just use the link in my signature. However, as they are formatted more toward Microsoft Word than Google Docs, the formatting may be messed up on Google Drive. In addition, I have notes in these documents that may be considered spoilers (notably Danganronpa), so be careful when reading. I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. So, for some brief introductions... * * * * * * * * * * Blazing Emblem Originally meant to be a Fire Emblem fan-game, Blazing Emblem is now trying to be a bit more original so it could eventually be made into an actual game and sold properly. It retains the Fire Emblem style of chapters and characters, but unit classes and equipment are handled differently. The premise of Blazing Empire is that the Emperor of an Empire has fallen ill. The Protagonist receives a letter from the dying Emperor and goes to see him before getting caught up in a coup. The Protagonist discovers she is the heir to the Empire. She then sets off on a journey to prove her rightful place as Empress while other factions covet the Emperor's throne. She will go around the Empire to discover how exactly the Emperor died, who masterminded the takeover, and eventually bring peace to her beloved Empire. One of the common tropes in video games is that "The Empire" are typically seen as the bad guys. I wanted to make a "Good Empire" that is being torn apart by civil war due to various kingdoms competing for the Emperor's Throne. SW - Danganronpa Essentially a fan-game concept of Danganronpa. While it does take place in the same universe, it does not exactly follow the Danganronpa formula. The basic premise is the same as there are 16 participants are thrown into a killing game, there is the influence of Hope vs Despair, and the existence of Ultimates (or Super Duper High School "x"). However, it deviates as the setting takes place in the United States and not all participants are highschoolers (as this Killing Game takes place on an University Campus). The story follows a man who works as a custodian at a university. While he is intellectual and has no business being a mere cleaner, he suffers greatly due to the aftermath of the Tragedy and his own deteriorating mental condition. While the university itself managed to steer clear from the madness and despair of the world, a group of hackers accidentally open Pandora's Box when they break through the campus firewall and gain access to the Internet... When the man returns after his weekend break, he finds the campus to be oddly deserted and eerily quiet. He discovers the effects of the Despair Video, seeing the corpses of students and faculty alike inside the buildings. Before he could escape, he is captured and thrown into the Killing Game alongside 15 other participants. As always, he has to fight for survival and attempt to beat the Killing Game with the other survivors, figure out the mastermind, and uncover the connection between the University and Hope's Peak Academy. I was on a Danganronpa marathon spree and wanted to do something similar, so I came up with this fan-game concept. I also figured that working on a more text-heavy project would be better for me since I am more proficient at writing (and lack skills for dedicating coding and art). SW - Fan Ideas Basically a collection of smaller ideas and projects for various video games. Included here are my Battle for Wesnoth campaign notes, all of my Fire Emblem fan content, some map ideas for Renegade X, and other random things. There's not much to really discuss here since reading is believing. If you are curious, go check it out! SW - Vindictus While named "SW - Vindictus" this is more like Blazing Emblem where I take a game concept and transform it into one of my own. I loved playing Vindictus, but some of the decisions behind it have rubbed me the wrong way and I am not a fan of Nexon NA in general. I remember one time I just wanted to pop back on and read the forums out of curiosity, only to discover they were banning prominent members left and right. I figured if I could make my own Vindictus, maybe I'll enjoy it more! This title is an Action RPG. At the start there are four characters to choose from, but each character has access to four different specializations that affect how they play. The overall story is similar to the original Vindictus (a tale of prophecy and godhood). It is an online F2P game. Honestly, so far I have focused more on the gameplay and characters than the story itself. Other Stuff There's a ton more stuff currently On Hold or Archived, and I don't plan on writing up an intro for everything. If you want to know more, read up on it or just ask me about it!
  4. I was just wondering what is your personal favorite overworlds in the Zelda series?
  5. 1. Fire Emblem 2. Final Fantasy 3. Legend of Zelda 4. Grand Theft auto 5. RPG Maker 6. Dark Souls 7. Skyrim 8. Terraria 9. Durr Lang Raiser 10. Chrono Triggered
  6. So, I know everyone here likes the Nintendo portable consoles (Duh, I guess that's pretty obvious), but I didn't saw anyone saying anything about the PSP and Vita for example. What you guys think about it? Come on, give me your thoughts, don't be shy
  7. So, I have never played an Assassin's Creed game in my life. But, recently, I watched a review of Assassin's Creed: Origins, and its historic accuracy. The reviewer absolutely loved all the attention to detail and said it was clear that the game animators at least had worked closely with historians. Here's the actual review, if you're interested: That got me thinking about another video game that's in development, called Kingdom Come: Deliverance and set in 15th Century Bohemia, and how the people making that game have said that they want it to be authentic, and, for the most part, it seems to be. This got me thinking, when it comes to movies and TV shows set in historical settings, they pretty much never are historically accurate. Almost all of them fall into cinema clichés like weird leather armour that didn't exist, everyone wearing brown and being covered in mud, and many of them don't even portray the historic events the way they most likely actually happened. Video Games enable a lot more immersion, and thus can get a lot more right, but also can get a lot more wrong. Now, a lot of games market themselves as fantasy. But for some, part of the marketing and advertising is that they take place during a certain historic setting or event. Should the latter games do everything they can to be authentic, while still making a good game? What do you think?
  8. What video games did you find it hard + hard difficulty mode as well did you managed to clear in your playthrough. I did managed to beat some of the hard video games that I managed to complete that are: The Mysterious Murasame Castle Donkey Kong Country 2 & 3 on the GBA (I did heard it was one of the hardest games on the SNES) The Angry Video Game Nerd Adventures Star Fox Zero (I did heard people complaining about the controls, but I managed to play the demo first to get use to the controls) Fire Emblem Heroes (I beat all the Story Mode Chapters in Lunatic Mode and Paralogues, and plus, this is kinda like the first Fire Emblem game that I managed beat Lunatic Mode) Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels on Super Mario Bros. All-Stars 25th Anniversary Edition in the Wii. Super Mario Maker for 100 Mario Challenge in Expert Mode (13 times to get the Mystery Mushroom costumes) StarTropics (two times on Wii Virtual Console and NES Online) Ninja Gaiden (NES version) The Legend of Zelda (NES version) Zelda II: The Adventures of Link Ninja Gaiden II (NES version) Castlevania Castlevania III: Dracula's Curse Super Castlevania IV Castlevania: Dracula X Blaster Master Mega Man I am still haven't cleared on Castlevania: Rondo of Blood, Ninja Gaiden III (NES version), and Cuphead.
  9. Hi! I am currently finding out some information about making a nice game. It would be a pleasure if you give your small time answering my small survey for this study. If you have a feedback to my survey, please feel free to comment on it so I can improve it better since it's my first time making a such study. Survey Link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/8BX66DP Thanks!
  10. Hey, you guys. Sorry, if I should have put this topic up in another part of the forum, but I'm fairly new here, so I apologize in advance, if this is the wrong place for something like this. I have recently browsed through a lot of forums regarding Fire Emblem and some other video games and I have come across a very, very disturbing thing. Opinions aren't acceptable anymore. Is it just me, or did anyone else see something like this: Post: Oh, boy. FE:A is my favourite Fire Emblem! Reply: Go away. FE:A is stupid crap *more people join in and bash on Guy A* I mean, wow, right? Of course, not everyone is like this (and I don't, I repeat I DON'T want to offend anyone personally, so please hear me out on this one). The above is just an example. It could also be replaced with anything. Pokémon's first generation for example. If you see someone innocently state that Gen 1 is their favourite, you can expect a chain of comments bashing this person for stating his/her opinion. I know, it sounds like I'm whining, but something like this can be very personal to some. I myself said something and the very next day I had a chain of comments below my original post that bashed me for having this very opinion (that opinion being Charizard being my personal favourite Pokémon). It seems to be a common thing across the internet nowadays. Certain opinions are not acceptable anymore. It says something that I myself am scared to admit that Charizard is my favourite Pokémon or that my favourite game is Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World (after Fire Emblem Awakening of course). Did you ever feel that way with something you liked that the rest of the fanbase didn't? Did you ever get bashed for stating your opinion? I guess I just want to know if I'm alone on this one or if anyone out there agrees with me that this is truly frightening. And again, I apologize if this is the wrong section.
  11. I find the Pikmin series to be really, really enjoyable. Recently, I beat Pikmin 1, and I'm collecting the last few fruit in Pikmin 3. What do you think of Pikmin? What about Pikmin 3? My favorite Pikmin are the Winged. They basic beat out Whites as the super stuff carriers.
  12. okay so most of us probably consider video games to be fun and keep us occupied for quite a while. But what video games would you consider playing a punishment? for example you got in trouble and you have to play this video game for 6 hours a day? well here are two off the top of my head cod for more than 2 hours unless one in the chamber. Reason:gets boring as hell fe 4 for more than 20 minutes: yeah i know 20 minutes anyways reason: boringness and unfun
  13. Guys. GUYS. This is what everyone's been hoping for. Well, at least I hope you've been hoping for this. :P Nintendo finally released Earthbound on the VC today- or yesterday, I think. On the Wii U, no less. http://www.nintendo.com/games/detail/82s5n1dbV4gstayVNhVYtOneSXTIXACS Fans have been begging for this forever, and Nintendo has finally done it. T'is a truly glorious moment, indeed. And it's only $10. Perhaps this could somehow encourage Nintendo to release Mother 3 in NA somehow. Maybe.
