Title: Fire Emblem Discussion
Post by: Swagmaster on February 28, 2016, 06:00:56 PM
Discuss!!! Fates or Awakening or any others you may want to talk about!

I am playing Awakening again on Classic Mode this time without restarting saves. (Almost had a heart attack because my Donell was at 1 HP, and then I completely lucked out when my opponent had THREE STRAIGHT MISSES/No Damage Attacks!!! Now he's a Lv 1 Hero and I'm trying to marry him to Nowi)

any ways I'm on chapter 15 of that and I plan on getting all 3 Fates real soon. Probably during spring break

I started playing Awakening recently. But there are too many good games on 3DS atm... I can't follow :/

I'm planning to write an article about this game.

I wish I didn't lose my path of radiance save file.

Well I could play the GBA ones on my phone but I'm playing knight of lodis so meh. Wouldn't want to play to tactical games at the same time.

I know that feeling, but it was definitely worth it putting down all my other games to play it again. To me, it is the second best 3DS game, behind only Link Between Worlds. Playing it the first time I thought it was great, but not THAT great, but that was only a casual play through. This second play through on Classic, I get to experience the game for what it is, and it's truly incredible

Well I've been planning what to do in Awakening in my imagination for a while. Unfortunately I can't get it on my Vita, so I'm just crying about not being able to play one of my favourite franchises x_x

Now, while I've only played two Fire Emblem games actually understand what was going on (the both that were translated to English on the GBA) it's really, really great. The Sacred Stones is my favourite, and since Awakening appears to be in the same vibe as it, I was sooo excited about it I was going to get the themed 3DS, but in the end I never did because it wasn't sold in Brazil.

I'm pretty sure you can emulate it if you look hard enough. I don't deal with that stuff anymore lol I'd rather buy games now but yeah

He was useful on Lyn's chapter. From what I understand all the characters can be recruited in eliwood's chapter too, right?

Also the Pegasus knight from Lyn's chapter was hell to keep alive. Kinda sad because the Pegasus knight from Path of radiance was super useful early in the game.

It's been awhile since I last played but that seems right. On my first playthrough Erk pretty much stayed in my active roster the entire game.

Florina becomes more useful later in the game as long as you manage to level her up enough during Lyn's story mode.

I don't think I level'd her up enough. Mostly just made her fly around houses.

Well, you can get a few other flying units later on so it's not a big deal. Another 3 or 4 of them IIRC.

I heard Pegasus Knights are generally better than Wyvern Riders in this game. Dat true?
Title: Re: Fire Emblem Discussion

Sort of. You get two of 'em, one starting at a lower level than most of your party and the other eventually getting outclassed by the first one.

The first one, at least once you catch him up with the rest of your party, isn't necessarily worse than the pegasus knights, just different.

I generally don't like flying units but I keep one or two around in my parties usually. Camila in Fates: Conquest is total BA tho

Got to the point where Ninian joins your party in Rekka no ken.

Now I'm not sure if I wanna ship Eliwood with Lyndis or Ninian. I haven't been doing support conversations at all now that I think about it.

Sooo I got Fates and Awakening.

I think Awakening was a better game in general though.

oh yeah no doubt about it.

Conquest was a lot more fun though because unless you buy DLC, even normal, casual play is rather difficult compared to the rest of them

I only have Birthright and Revelations. Never much of a fan of the whole "not having a world map" thing, I always thought it took away the replayability and the option to use your favourite characters instead of the ones you really like...not to mention makes it way harder to get Supports, which are like the best part of the game. xD

On the topic of flyers, I absolutely love them. I always have to watch for Archers so they don't butcher my party...
And Revelations makes picking party members so hard, because I want so many of them in but there are only so little space...:c

So, I completed Eliwoods chapter quite some time ago and I even though I'm interested in knowing Hector's side of the story and a few other characters I can't get myself to play it all over again.

(click to show/hide)

Here are some general pros and cons I feel about the game:

Pros:
+ The sprites look awesome.
+ Nice game feel. Getting a lucky critical feels good man
+ Some of the missions require a bit more unique strategizing which I really like
+ Character ships!
+The tactician and tactician rank system is pretty cool. Trying to keep a high rank was fun
+ Having Merlinus is pretty cool. I don't have to throw away items and he brings an extra layer of strategy since I need someone to protect him

Cons:
-Shops and support conversations are only available during missions. It would have been quite better if you could shop and converse during the preparation phase
-Eliwood gets his class upgrade way too late in the game. He was at max level quite early which meant I couldn't make him fight since that would be wasting valuable exp. So most of the time he just sat back, bought shit and flirted with Ninian. That was his job
- All flying units are way weaker than the rest of my party when I get them. Had to suffer in the missions where I needed them because I didn't use them.
-Ursula.
-Can't ship tactician with lyndis
-Can't ship tactician with anybody :(

And that's my general feelings for the game. And I also feel like listing the characters I used from best to worst(gameplay wise). So,
1.Lyndis
2.Kent
3.Oswin
4.Dorcas
5.Rath
6.Hector
7.Lucius
8.Karel
9.Erk
10.Eliwood
11.Jaffar
12.Athos
13.Nino

Didn't add Priscila, Merlinus and Nils/Ninian on the list because they're support characters. Eliwood, Jaffar and Nino are at the bottom because of their late game appearance and/or late game class upgrade. And Athos was pretty much at the last 2 missions for story reasons.

Also...

Sorry for the wall of text and hope you take your time to read it.

Lyndis was an absolute beast. I don't remember much about the game because I played it so long ago, but I do remember her being pretty much my "main" through the whole thing...not to mention  cool her animation looked. With her best unique sword thing and/or killer edge  could just throw her in the middle of a group of enemies and watch her critical everyone for ~100 dmg and never get hit.xD

Man, I miss those sprites. I always skip animations in the newer games

ikr. She's easily likeable as a character too. Still sad that I can't ship Lyndis with tactician though.

Question, is it worth it... to buy the DLC on 3DS?
Title: Re: Fire Emblem Discussion
Post by: Swagmaster on December 13, 2016, 09:50:33 PM
I bought the first 2 packs. i'd say they're worth it
