MOD NOTE: There is a dedicated Three Houses thread here.

    original content 
I figured it was high time we had a thread for everyone's* favorite turn-based strategy RPG, Fire Emblem. Hopefully whatever discussion we have won't be marred by a surfeit of hardcore fans going "dagnabbit you kids and your easy English-language Fire Emblems", unlike that on some other sites.

Anyway! Share your FE experiences, thoughts, hopes, and RAAGE.

Personally, I got hooked on the series with Sacred Stones after seeing Marth and Roy in Super Smash Bros Melee, and got Radiant Dawn and enjoyed that too, especially since it was significantly harder than SS. I really missed support convos though, since they were a big part of the series' charm- the base info conversations and gameplay made up for it though. I recently got Shadow Dragon, and I'd have to say it's not nearly as entertaining, mostly because the characters lack, well, character. Most of them get one join-up line with some scant hints of their motivations, and then that's it- they become depersonalized units, just tools for you to use. The levels are interesting and the reclass feature is really cool, but with such flat characters (not to mention a pretty bare-bones plot), it just doesn't do it for me. I'll still play it for the challenge, or if I get bored, but it's hard to feel the same enthusiasm I had for the other Fire Emblems I've played.

Anyway, enough of my ranting- your turn to talk!

  • Maybe not everyone's, but c'mon, hyperbole is what ALL the cool kids are doing these days.

Cipher has non-Degenerated Anankos

So now we know what he looked like before he went cuckoo.

Nice to see his still-sane dragon form again; I remember it from the artbook.

I canít stop seeing a mirage from Tokyo Mirage Sessions in his humanoid formís design. Dragon form definitely looks cool though.

A storm of despair draws near. Will it herald dark nights, or a new dawn?

I do wonder if we'll get to see serpentine water dragons in future games. The water dragons from Fates definitely do not have serpentine designs, and the last water dragon we got, Indech from Three Houses, doesn't look like a serpent either.

I think there were supposed to be serpentine sea dragons in one game, but they ended up not being used?

[up]x2 Those of us who play FEH were all Anankos all along. Insert obligatory "Aether Raids is what caused Anankos to go on a rampage" joke here.

A pity the dialogue doesn't last that long; I wouldn't be surprised if a lot of people missed out on the part where the rave party really begins.

I know I did. I thought it was The non dubstep version from before the timeskip.

(reading Sylvain+Felix and Dimtri+Dedue's paired endings) ..... I'm surprised rainbows aren't shooting of my TV right now.

[up][up] What do you mean?

[up]Go to the Event Viewer and view the last listed scene in Azure Moon. When the final boss starts talking, let the music play for a while.

To go with Non-Degenerate Anankos here is Revelations!Corn with their own unique armor.

The cape is based on Anankos garb. The armor a mix of Hoshido and Nohr + Cipher!Anankos gold trimmings. And lastly water surrounding and adorning the outfit.

Anyone else kinda love What Comes From Darkness? To this day it occasionally starts playing in my head when I see a fictional villain unexpectedly kill someone or otherwise suddenly appear to do something nasty.

The pig of Hufflepuff pulsed like a large bullfrog. Dumbledore smiled at it, and placed his hand on its head: "You are Hagrid now."

[up][up]I hate it. Corrin's armor just doesn't do anything for me. Default looks good, that just doesn't.

Glad to see it finally though, thanks for sharing.
