The Birth of a Falcommie

Recommended Posts

For years, I thought it was a joke. "It can't be that great," I told myself. "It would be popular if it was that great." But after spending a year on a Fire Emblem forum where the "Trails of" series is more popular than Fire Emblem, I finally gave in. And I emerged... a Falcommie.

So I just finished Trails in the Sky FC and I'm going to start on SC after my vacation. You guys were right. I shouldn't have resisted. I now know what I was missing out on. I will now join your ranks and incessantly sing the praises of Aidos all throughout the forums.

Never heard the term Falcommie before, but glad you're enjoying Trails! 

Maybe try some Ys too while you're at it.

Welcome~!  Once you go Falcom, it's hard to go back. :P:

After Sky, there's Cold Steel, which is its own banana.  Have fun~!

Falcommie sounds a like sickness to me tbh., but anyways I discovered the awesomeness of their games this year too by playing the two Trails of Cold Steel parts. It made me want to play other Erebonia parts.

is "falcommie" actually the name people use for whatever this is, because I want to like it just so I can call myself a falcommie

I kinda invented it. So far as I know, there isn't another name for Falcom fans (in the US, at least.)

A Falcommie? Where?! *Readies my Buster Sword*

Ya better get gone ye Reds! This forest is for 100% Final Fascists only!

 

I'd consider getting into Nihon Falcom games, but I don't have Steam nor a PS4, so I don't have access to their lineup really.

Hey, wait, does this mean I can't be a Final Fascist anymore?

I played TitS (wow, that acronym has problems) through GOG.com. They let you download the games to your PC without having to worry about a whole lot of extra installation stuff. I played it on a very weak old laptop and only suffered minimal slowdown, so the barrier to entry isn't that high if you want to play the first trilogy.

I only played one game from Falcom, namely Gurumin 3D. I thought it was pretty 6/10. If I wanted to become a Falcommie, what single game should I get my hands on?

Ys Memories of Celceta

or get the latest Ys game, Ys VIII for PS4 and Vita.

Trails in the Sky FC and SC are available on PSP.  Trails of Cold Steel 1 and 2 are available on the Vita (and maybe the PS3, can't remember).

If you like action, go with the Ys series (I'll leave the people who actually play Ys to recommend a game).  If you like reading a lot of text, go with Trails in the Sky.

I don't have a PS4 or Vita. I guess it'll have to wait.

It's also coming out on Steam if PC is your thing. Don't know what other systems you own.

Remove the "Fal" part will make it sound less like a sickness.
