  1. So, having just about beaten this game, I am indeed pleased at all the obvious love that went into it. It didn't have a lot of the silly things that dragged Awakening and Fates down, had a lot of neat mechanics changes, made fantastic use of the secondary characters (for example, May, Boey, and Saber remaining relevant all the way to the very end), GREATLY expanded the story and dialogue, had wonderful voice acting...it was a treat. So before I go into the things I miss, I wanted to make it clear that I still consider this to be a good remake. That said...I'm someone who also really liked the NES version, in-spite of all it's flaws. And while this remake was great in it's own way, I felt there were a lot of little things that I missed. I'm only going to cover the atmosphere, this time, as this post ended up being WAY longer than I thought it would be. But, I'll get into other nitpicks in the future. For now, here's just the atmosphere. Number 1: Atmosphere One of the things that always stuck out to me about Gaiden was just how...bleak it was. From the minute you start, to the very end, the tone is generally very somber and tragic. Where the remake feels like you're trying to prevent bad things from happening...the original felt like the bad stuff had already happened. Part of the whole point of this game (and why Celica was so willing to offer herself to Jedah) was because the world was on the brink of dying. The land was dark and ominous, the literal dead were walking the Earth, and the soundtrack was EXTREMELY depressing (with only a handful of "positive" tunes in there). Celica's decision to sacrifice herself to Duma wasn't because she was naive and stupid (as you'll recall, she asks him WHY she should believe what he says). It was her believing that the whole world was dying. If she did nothing, everyone and everything in the world would die (as far as she knew). She wasn't stupid, she was desperate; and Jedah actually did a really good job of playing upon that (seriously, props to the writing team; these characters were really well-written). In any case, the original Gaiden did a WAY better job of selling me on just how desperate things were. The villages were a lot emptier, the color palette was significantly darker... ...The characters weren't nearly as handsome and well-groomed as they are in Echoes... ...and the soundtrack was generally a lot more depressing. There were a lot of new songs composed for this remake; and many of them were a lot cheerier and/or relaxing than the original songs. And even some of the original songs that were used were radically changed and/or used less frequently. For example, compare this... Village Theme (Echoes): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pkAjHxLKTfE A fairly neutral piece of mood music that's just kind of...there. It's not CHEERY or anything, but it's relaxing enough that you feel safe and confident. The grass is green (even in the supposedly "baren" Rigel Empire), the houses are standing, the sky is blue...you're feeling pretty good. The GAIDEN music, on the other hand... Village Theme (Gaiden): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HGg97xkg4DQ Yeah. IMMEDIATELY, it sets this somber, outright oppressive atmosphere. It's depressing, and extremely monotonous. However, it's monotonous in a good way. Alm's argument with Mycen, as well as Lukas' speech about how desperate things are, hit a lot harder with this song droning in the background. And that isn't the only time it's used, either. It is used in every village you come across in the original game, save for the Sage's Hamlet and both port towns. Every village you come across is supposed to be in a state of desperation; and the original song reflects that a lot better. That said, Echoes DOES use this song once. Though, sadly... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=io2yXqWVa4g It now sounds a lot more uplifting; as this has been turned into Alm's triumphant "I'm going to rise up and join the army!" theme. Still would've at least worked well for Lukas' recruitment speech, at least...but still missing the sense of despair the original had (to me, at least). The other town theme (the one that played for the aforementioned port towns and Sage's Hamlet) is also the same way. In Gaiden, you feel very...emotional, when you hear it. Encounter (Gaiden): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Hj0eM_YkuA Like, the characters themselves are happy...but they're happy in the context of a world of tears. The song is just as much sad as it is happy; being played as the recruitment theme AND the theme that plays when random villagers are talking about how many people Barth and Grieth have slaughtered. Like, the way the song is cheery, but desolate at the same time. The characters are smiling, but they're smiling in the face of unspeakable pain (or so it sounds to me). The Echoes version, on the other hand, is just happy through and through. Encounter (Echoes): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WXF8HFGRvgU And it IS great, don't get me wrong! I love the way it's used in the Remakes, too! I just wish they had maybe...I dunno, constructed two different versions of it. Maybe the above piece could have been the "holy cow, Est has been reunited with her sisters!!" theme, and the other could be the "port town of sad and lonely people" variation. And finally, there's "Celica Map 2/The Sacrifice and the Saint". Once again, this is the case where I like what they did with the remake...but still wish they had found a way to recapture the mood of the original. The Sacrifice and the Saint (Gaiden): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CCAfEHiuI6E Now, instead of playing exclusively as Celica's "Chapter 4 Battle Music", this was, instead, the "Victory" theme. The theme that played whenever there was only one enemy left, in ALL Celica battles. In a vacuum, it's obviously not as well composed as the remake. But, it DOES do a better job of supporting that aforementioned "oppressive atmosphere". It's faintly triumphant, but it also sounds desperate at the same time. Like, the characters are winning, but, it's just one step in the long, LONG ordeal that Celica has ahead of her. She's won the fight, but she's still got the entire war ahead of her. But the Remake... The Sacrifice and the Saint (Echoes): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QxI9G3v-n4o Well, it works fantastically as an endgame battle theme. But, once again, it is WAY more triumphant and hopeful than the original. And that's something I find regrettable. Had they kept that same sense of despair throughout the whole game, it would have made Celica's decision to sacrifice herself to Duma make a little more sense. It wouldn't have been smart, necessarily...but I could totally buy her just being really desperate to save her dying world.
  2. His my Oboro Stats Str 41 Mag 11 Ski 46 Spd 43 Lck 36 Def 40 Res 31 Class: Spear Master Question: What skills are perfect for her
  3. You all know very well it's coming, sooner or later. Our beloved dating simulator with a tactics minigame tacked on prints too much money for IS to just give up on it. The question is... What new things do you want to see from the next installment? Are there any old mechanics you'd like IS to bring back? Is there a current mechanic you'd like to see them rework or get rid of? Would you rather it be a remake of an older FE or something new? Do you want it to be on the 3DS or the Switch? Why is Meg so perfect? Personally, I'd like to see something new, though I wouldn't mind a remake. I mean, if IS dangled in front of me a chance to play with Alm, Leif, Hector or Niime in a sick new model with a sick new art style, you bet your ass I'd be all over that. Still, I'd like to see IS deliver something completely new to the table. They did some interesting stuff with the classes in Fates (Like giving us a cool Bow + Staves class), so I'm excited to see what they might do next. Anyway, share your thoughts. I'd like to hear what you guys want.
  4. Hello, I came to ask a simple question... If I want to play as a golem in fe fates how do I hex edit the save so I can change character ids and class ids? And I know of one member's efforts, but it didn't exactly help me... So please answer this question and thank you for your time.
  5. I am considering snorting coke, and for those who do I have a few questions: Is it wrong to snort coke? Do you do it? Do you prefer cans or bottles? And if bottles, what size should I go for? 600ml? 2l? Glass or plastic? Should I just pour it in a cup? Is it best when fizzy? Should I refer to it as coca-cola before people assume I am snorting drugs? Or should I just snort Fanta instead? Thanks in advance. Whoops I double posted. Thank you internet.
  6. If you were to become a playable character in Fire Emblem Awakening, what would you be like? What gimmicks would you have? You can go as in-depth or as casual as you want. I, personally, are going to go HAM, but, please, DO NOT feel as if you have to go as in depth as I am about to go. I will post mine in a minute. Unit Name: Jael Recruited: Paralogue 4.5: Considering Oblivion Starting Class: Mage Starting Level: 12 Starting Skills: Magic+2, Focus, Shadowgift Starting Inventory: Superior Jolt, Nosferatu (The reason this unit has Shadowgift is supposed to be a reference to my IRL pseudo-pessimistic thinking and general cynicism. I think my soul is dark enough to handle Dark Magic even when not specifically trained for it. Magic+2 and Focus are standard Mage skills. The reason for Mage as a class is because I, IRL, have always felt especially connected with books and literature, so magical tomes would be a perfect weapon for me.) Critical Quotes: "Speak your last words!" "I'm sorry, what did you say?!" "Go to seek a Great Perhaps!" "I'll write this on your tombstone!" Jael, just as I am, is obsessed with last words and memorizes them almost compulsively. He's also very morbid, but also very accepting, casually referencing that all humans are fated for death. This does make others in the army uncomfortable, however, he either doesn't notice or doesn't care. Support Options: Cordelia, Sumia, Miriel, Lissa, Maribelle, Sully, Olivia, Cherche, Panne, FeMU (up to S-Support) Tiki, Nowi, MaMU (up to A-Support) His supports with Tiki would be him trying to help her remember Marth's last words, as they have been lost to history. However, he feels as if they are somewhere deep within her memory. His supports with Nowi would be him envious of her having a body that can never die of natural causes, while his supports with either MU would be them trying to convince him to stop being to morbid, while he tries to get them to accept the inevitability of death. Confession Quote: "While we only have a short time on this Earth, I'm glad I get to spend it with you." Reclass Options: Thief, Archer Jael prefers classes that serve uses outside of straight combat, or at least are not directly involved. The primary goal of a thief is to get the loot and get out, while an archer can stand far away and just shoot at their foes, both sticking with his "Limit physical combat as much as possible" mentality. Modifiers: -1 STR/+1 MAG/+3 SKL/0 SPD/0 LCK/-1 DEF/+2 RES
  7. Not sure if this is the right forum... Anyway, I've started a project for voices for the voice synthesiser UTAU. Basically, you have to choose a sample ("ka", "pi", etc) and upload it. It would be very nice if you chose to upload a sample. Project info here->http://www.vocaloidotaku.net/index.php?/topic/61201-crowdsourced-utaus/ You don't need a Vocaloid Otaku account. Mods: Feel free to delete this or move to a different forum.
  8. So we had those nifty cut-in portraits from awakening, are we going to get them again for if?
  9. Or... At least I hope this is. http://www.facebe.net/view/ox6iwknkX4A I've looked around to see those who have already gotten their hands on the new Smash, and if they've posted the music n' stuff. Turns out, few have. But here I am, at school bored out of my mind in my iPad. I would share the direct link where I found: Smash Bros Coliseum Melody But my iPad blocks YouTube. So, I searched in Google, and... I'm hoping, this is an alternate link? http://www.facebe.net/view/ox6iwknkX4A I'm not really sure, I'm hoping someone can get back to me on that. The reason why I'm sharing this is because out of all the music I've heard so far from Smash 4, that wasn't from previous games, mind you, they haven't really... Amped me up. This is one of the stand outs, I believe. And hey, it's Fire Emblem! So that's wonderful, yeah? *mumbles* At first I thought this was a Pokémon Colosseum theme, but... EDIT: Anyone? Yes, no? Is it the correct remix? IS it a remix? I can't play the video myself until I get home, so if someone could alert me if this is a link to the correct song...?
  10. Did you guys watch the Smash Direct today? What'd you think? I thought everything about it was incredible-- especially the Mewtwo reveal. Kinda iffy about character DLC being a thing, but I can't be mad 'cause I'm getting him for free~ Anyway, share your thoughts, opinions, and HYPE!
  11. Because yes. I am a fan of the pikachu. I am training it to DESTROY MINE ENEMIES! LOOK OUT, BROTHER!! Totally top percentage. Isnt he cute!? Stop looking at me like that. Ive really never played Red in its entirety. Show off your pokemanz for all to see!
  12. buses are lame, don't vote for youself, voting ends on the 15th, greninja > everything else
  13. With X and Y coming out officially tomorrow, and it being Friday, I thought I'd share something funny with you guys. My old high school runs a broadcasting channel with a show called TGIF (or Thank God It's Friday), which is a show run by the students, for the students, and played every Friday morning. Long story short, several years ago when I was either a freshman or sophomore (can't remember), they decided to do a spoof on pokemon, and parodied the trainer's journey in Kanto which spanned over a few airings. They filmed in and around our high school area, putting together this parody with help from volunteer teachers and students. I recently rediscovered the parody on youtube, so I thought I'd post them here for anyone that would appreciate both humor and a good throwback to the days of Red, Blue, and Yellow. It's pretty amateur and silly, but I remember laughing my butt off when I first saw it in school, so I applaud the team that put this together, considering they probably didn't have the best filming and editing equipment available. I hope you have a laugh or two! Happy pre-launch Friday!!! ^_^ Unnecessary fun facts about my high school: 1. The person playing Professor Oak was my English Literature teacher, and my favorite teacher in high school. And yes, he really is named Lance. ^^ 2. The Carrmander joke refers to Mrs. Carr, the director of the ADV Dept, notorious for her death stare. 3. My old high school locker is one of the many visible in the Vermillion Gym scene. Not really important, but hey. All the videos are in order: http://youtu.be/HdTB8MDdRoc http://youtu.be/Opl-BqQES2M http://youtu.be/pi2js9gPbA4 http://youtu.be/3BG3UlFCKNQ
  14. I'm rewatching the Pokemon anime....and reviewing it. Because clearly I have nothing better to do (don't judge me, bro!). http://refathegreat.wordpress.com/2013/09/20/pokemon-episode-1-pokemon-i-choose-you-review/ If you find yourself in the same camp, feel free to read. Otherwise, I dunno, talk about how Ash is worse than Red or how much the GS ball sucks.
