....Anyone wants to talk about that here? Personally, I'd just go to Seres Forest for all sorts of analysis and whatnot. They've even got some of the calculations done.
Speaking for myself, I feel kind of mixed. I'm mostly positive and am glad that we're getting three versions (I'll see if I can get the special edition; 9250 yen isn't a lot for me to spend on Fire Emblem), as I think this is a good way to close the gap between several things: traditional story versus a more dramatic one, and having a world map versus not. It's almost like the Fun/Glory distinction in Smash. I also like how they're getting this game different in all kinds of aspects, from the obvious ones like the eastern atmosphere to parts that get the FE loyalist (and computer scientist) in me a bit uneasy, like the new weapon system, typeface and divisions by three in calculations. And looks like there'll be no time travel this time, which is good. To me, that would just kill off any seriousness of the story.
The best part, for me, has to be how each part of the game is approximately Awakening-big. Does that mean both branches plus the future DLC (which, by the way, will still be cheaper than the special edition) will be almost three Awakenings in scale? Should be good enough to keep my 3DS busy for a while.
Seriously though, I really did enjoy yesterdays trailer. The big thing for me is that it seems like Kozaki has really upped his game on the design front. All the characters we've seen so far look much better than the cast of Awakening in my opinion.
Last night Intelligent Systems had a broadcast for Fire Emblem Cipher, the new TCG game launching alongside Fire Emblem if. In that broadcast they revealed two new facts about FEif.
First off, the mysterious dancer is named Aqua.
Secondly, like with Awakening there will be DLC characters, except this time they can be downloaded with a code included with the cards packages. So far they've revealed that Marth, Lucina, and Minerva will be DLC characters.

nocturnal YL: Guys, guys! I can't believe what I found in Zelda 1! The game features an Elimination Mode that for some reason not many talked about! I wonder if it's fun? (Don't actually try it.)

nocturnal YL: Hey, I can edit shoutbox posts! This is already better than Twitter!

Nester the Lark: It seems like Cadence of Hyrule should be more popular than it is. Are people put off by the rhythm aspect? Or the randomly-generated maps?

nocturnal YL: ↑ Might warrant its own thread, but I think mixing rhythm and other genres usually resuls in gameplay too difficult for many. I can't handle it well either, judging from my scores in Dedede's Drum Dash.

nocturnal YL: ↑ For me personally, it simply hasn't been considered. It's a download-only game (until now) from a series I'm unfamiliar with and didn't feel like trying out.

Nester the Lark: Ironically, I did create a thread for Cadence of Hyrule, but then deleted it thinking there wouldn't be any discussion on it. Maybe I'll go ahead and make a new one.

Shrikeswind: Something to bear in mind about the shoutbox if you’re not already aware: It doesn’t show up on the mobile version of the forums. This shouldn’t be a major problem, but it can make it difficult to get into discussions for mobile visitors.
Jul 26, 2020 1:40:18 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: Also the more obvious character limit issues, and the format not really being conducive to longer-term discussion. It’s useful but limited; threads definitely still have their place.

Shrikeswind: (Honestly, Proboards mobile is pretty bad in general, but...)

Nester the Lark: Not sure if this works on all devices, but you can force the desktop version of the forum by scrolling all the way to the bottom and clicking the "Desktop" link at the lower right.

Shrikeswind: I’m aware. I’m typing this from my phone. I’m just pointing out that, for people who aren’t aware or who may be casually checking in on their phone, the shoutbox won’t be visible on

Shrikeswind: Is there a Discord for NinDB, by the way? It’s very popular with them there young’ns these days, so it might help activity.
Jul 26, 2020 22:07:47 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: There is no NinDB Discord. There was a brief discussion of it a few years ago, but nothing ultimately came of it. I rarely use Discord, myself.
Jul 27, 2020 8:58:28 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: Hm. Seems like it might be a good idea if activity picks up. Not to be a pessimist but I do have my doubts that'll happen though.

Shrikeswind: Okay not a Nintendo topic but I kinda need to talk about this because I just learned it and it's a thing so bleh.

Shrikeswind: You remember Disney's Hunchback of Notre Dame, right? So apparently, 5 year old me was incapable of discerning male and female in non-humans, because *apparently* there's a female gargoyle, and the goat's a boy.
