Unfortunately, I am not currently immortal, so I shall need to pass on the epic tales of your past. I do believe I've heard tale of that game, actually. It seems some people still deem it entertaining in the age of Sunrider, Fire Emblem, and all of the porn on the internet.

Some people I will never understand.

I think many people enjoy hitting each other with bits of wood, poking each other with bits of wood on and off horses and shooting things with bits of wood. Don't ask for any examples though. I don't know any of these people in person.

Hmmmm, not sure where to start.

But I'm guessing if I don't post here in the end, Elvis and co. will have me for breakfast.

Anyway, my favorite (and so far the only) FE game was Awakening. As I mentioned before, my favorite characters are probably Avatar, Lucina and Cordelia, though I generally like everyone in this game; even the villains have a certain appeal to them here. That's pretty rare for me in a game.

I like most of the classes, though Tactician/Grandmaster is my favorite probably, due to the ability to do both magic and melee, and do it relatively well. Ignis skill in particular helps. And like I said in my introductory post, I also dig Hero, Great Knight and Sorcerer. Dark Pegasi are nice too, because Gale Force. Gale Force Lucina is in class of her own.

I admit, while I play the game on Hard/Classic setting, I'm mostly in it for the Supports. All the supports in this game are pretty good, and I love all these little character developments interwoven into the plot.

Not sure what else to say, ehehehehehe.

That's the thing about the FE series. Each character really doesn't play big into the plot (mainly because they can die) but they each get their own development over the game. It's also what makes playing Hard/Classic (or any of the older games) a really tactical game. If you lose someone, that's it, and you can't help but feel disappointed that you got one of your allies killed because they followed your plans. =(

Tactician and Grandmaster is a great class, with great abilities, the skills it gets are all very good at boosting your other units. Exception being Ignis, but that's one of the better attack skills out there. The ability to attack physically or magically is also a huge boon. Personally, I can't get behind Great Knights, as they have two weaknesses (beast and armor) and have one of the worst skill stats of the fighters (only Berserkers have less). Heroes are pretty solid ground units. I think Swordmasters are better, but Heroes get Sol, which is superior to Astra in my opinion. And Dark Pegasus' Gale Force is... Gale Force. haha I suggest trying a General out. They have low move, but they have very high HP, STR, DEF, and SKL. They just lack EVA, RES, and MV but you can pair them up with a Falcon Knight or Dark Flier to make up for that. They are especially good in the Valm story arc because that arc is very physically heavy. Also, try getting Counter from Warriors on some of your male units. It is one of the better skills as well.

The supports are what makes all the character development in the game. The sheer amount of pairings included is enough to keep you busy for days. Then you get children characters and you have another generation of characters to pair up! You are not only a tactician on the battlefield of war, but also on the battlefield of love. >.<

So, where in the story are you? I assume you've beaten it? What postgame things have ya done? Any DLC episodes?

This is about the time I reset the game, honestly. Screw you, Death! You'll never take my people!

Awakening actually allows you to view way more Support Conversations than any past Fire Emblem game. The first several didn't even have Support Conversations, actually, and neither did the remake of the first. The ones that did limited you to getting a total of five per character, and most characters couldn't support each other. It was limited to a select few options for each one. Awakening really has opened a lot of options up.

Believe it or not, the Pair Up feature never existed before either. Oh, and there used to be a thing called Light Magic. It was cool. Also, for a long time, there was no way to change your unit from one base/promoted class to a different base/promoted class. Everyone just had fourty levels in total, and that was that. Things were weird back then.

I'm actually wondering what they're going to do for the next game. Keep things similar to Awakening? Switch back to some older ideas? Change everything again, in an attempt to make everything better? Worked last time, after all, in my opinion.

Personally, I wouldn't mind another 3DS Fire Emblem that works a lot like Awakening. Wouldn't mind it at all.

I remember there's a moment in the game where Avatar tells someone - probably Lucina - that he isn't interested in "as little casualties as possible". He's aiming for none. That was a nice nod to player mentality in these games, I think.

My fondness for the Great Knight probably comes from all the guarding my Fredrick did to all the characters back when they were weaker. I found them to be also a decent back-up to my more fragile classes as mages or archers, though I suppose I could be using someone different.

Indeed! Not to mention all these different possibilities! A blond Severa, a black-haired one...one more magic-oriented, another with Astra...there's just no end to it.

I've gotten pretty far into the story, but then I lost my saves  :-\

I already know how it turns out though, so no need to worry about the spoilers. I did get all the "support" DLCs, like Summer Scramble. As well as a couple of those card-collecting ones (where you recruit old FE heroes).

I'm not that scary am I? The only things I enjoy killing are PACT ships and Angels, really.

Life has taught me to be careful of the quiet ones, heh.

Hmmm, I'm personally interested in a Fire Emblem game set in the age of gunpowder and steam. It seems like the world in Awakening is slowly advancing towards that stage. Would be interesting to see.

Well, it's not exactly what you're looking for, but recently, Intelligent Systems (the group behind the Fire Emblem series) unveiled a brand new game in the works, which is a turn based RPG (though more similar to Valkeria Chronicles than Fire Emblem) for the 3DS, where there are both guns and steam. So much steam, the game is NAMED Code Name : S.T.E.A.M.

Check it out if you're interested. The graphics aren't quite what you might be expecting, but I personally think it's going to be awesome. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ayzMMpE2lTM

Also, there was actually some talk about creating a Fire Emblem game set on Mars, before Awakening was created. While I doubt it'll happen, there's a chance they might skip over steam and get straight into the future.

I have this weird image of Fire Emblem style Battlezone game now. Thank you.
Communist Pilot-chan vs. MURRICAN STRONK SPACE MARINE is now a go. Plus, all those supports full of sexual tensio


Alternatively, a 1800s style Fire Emblem. Repeating rifles. Machienguns. Colonialism. Magic-powered colonial machieguns  :P

Dang now I hate sega for not releasing Valkyria on PS Vita. and potentially kill the series

I want to play Trakia, heard its one of hardest (other than DS/3DS series with steroid difficulty)
Also waiting for new Advanced Wars. They said that they haven't given up, just that Fire Emblem is more guarantee-able success.
(Advanced Wars days of ruin had everything ready for release in japan but they did not since they didn't expect sale. Compared to that SRPG forum on many Japanese sites are all about Super Robot Wars and Fire Emblem.)
I kinda hunger for more Fire Emblem so I read the manga which is story of Roy in different view point, as well as the manga same author is drawing, Sacred Blacksmith based on light novel of same name.
Also I wish to play the game made by 'Original' creator of Fire Emblem after Nintendo sued him, the Berwick Saga.

Ah, a Fire Emblem post. I don't know how I still I didn't found it (or been invited). Well, let's see
The time....1996
The place....Gorchnik's living room.
The game....Fire Emblem IV
The system....Super Famicom

Gorchnik reset his cartridge many a time that day.
Ah, Holy War on the SNES. Still probably the best FE in the saga. I have played it on emulator, and still haven't finished (some day, some day...), but it is hard. The possibility of saving each turn is the only salvation (and I admit that I shamefully turned to save states of the emulator to save time). It is really worth it though, each chapter starting with the 2nd is a new definition of epic (well, the first half of the 3d and 4th are a little slow, but all have very strong middles, so it compenses).

Also I wish to play the game made by 'Original' creator of Fire Emblem after Nintendo sued him, the Berwick Saga.

You're not missing much.

Is that true, my lord? A shame, I heard some of the translations and the story semeed quite good, and the gameplay looked decent (2 paths, 40 chapters,etc) . Also Runan resembled Leaf, so I hoped he was as good as him

Are a lot of people here playing in Hard and Lunatic (except for our Lord, which of course does it and finds it easy)? You have my respect. I played FE for the first time when I was eleven. When I realized that after Erks HP went to zero, he simply dissapeared, not even a dialogue saying he was hurt like in Lyn's story, it really shocked me. I started playing very cautiously since then, but this resulted in overusing the Jeigan, and etc. I only stopped stucking by Radiant Dawn. Even now I have a slight panic of hard mode by fear of losing one unit (despite breezing in Awakening's normal without even thinking).

(I played all FE since 7, also 4, and someday I'm going to try FE 12 with the translation. Some day...)
Why can only the evil have empires, power and majestic theme music? I reclaim the possibility of creating the Federal-democratic-free Empire! A (democratic) tyranny fueled by the Power of Love!

Sega pretty much killed it already when they did such a poor job of marketing VC2, and of course many Western so-called fans of the series also had their own part in killing it by being so superficial that the graphical "downgrade" of the series from PS3 to PSP drove them away, as all available info suggested that at least in Japan VC2 and VC3 each sold similar numbers to the first.

Of course, Bayonetta as a series was also in a similar situation of franchise limbo with Sega until Nintendo came riding to the rescue. Who knows, maybe Code Name: STEAM might somehow miraculously lead to a surprise revival of Valkyria Chronicles.


... And while we're on the subject of Valkyria Chronicles, my pretties.

P.S.
While it's not Fire Emblem itself, for any fans of the series who somehow managed to miss this announcement, it's awesome:
