Fire Emblem Series! - Remember your spoiler tags!

Try to understand.
thats the joke, yes


I love this because it did the exact opposite of what it intended to do because it makes it seem worse than it really is
I've made a very similar statement about that in a much earlier post.

I don't really care if any of you liked the show or not, but this was pretty clever.

Don't worry, she'll get her own PVC figure first like Tharja did.
Guh. Would it kill them to have a male in there. Like srsly. Or is that some sort of cardinal sin?
The Figma Lucina was/is nice at least.

I mean, it's really up to the makers of the figma. What they think will sell. Nintendo doesn't say, "hey, make a figma of this character", they just do it. If you seen Good Smile's page, you would notice that 90% of their products are based on female characters. Besides most of the people that buy these kinds of things are males anyway, so why not make them cute girls or guys in anatomically incorrect but cool poses?

I realize Nintendo/game producers don't necessarily have a hand in it. I won't go into it on this thread, but it does have to partially do with the specific marketing. At the same time it's not particularly their fault either...so meh.
In other news yay, 10 more days! I might not actually get to start playing the game until going into the next week after release since I chose the cheapest shipping method. At least I can get the data transfer sorted out and get a proper handle on the N3ds.

The fact it's limited to your fiance helps curb the creep, at least

Irony at its finest.

well there is a nendoroid of marth coming soon and a charaform(sp?) figure of chrom already available, so there are at least a couple of figures of male characters. plus all the amiibo except lucina being men. figma i think tends to make more female characters overall tho, which sort of makes sense when you consider who they pander too...


i just want more merch of old characters. i almost would want either a 6/7 or 4/5 remake just because theyd probably make more merch of those...

Ok guys, I'm getting Birthright tomorrow and I've managed to stay mostly spoiler-free so far, but there is one important thing I think I should know about before heading in: is there a point in the game where the story forces you (or anyone else) to marry whomever you/they have the highest affection level with at the moment, a lo Chrom? I don't want another Chrom/Maribelle situation on my hands.

I never heard of one in the game, but I'm not absolutely 100% sure.

I don't think so, though.

No there is not. You can go the entire game without anyone getting married if you wish.

Also friendly reminder to everyone, per the somewhat-new spoiler rule from the main forum rules, please be sure to put any spoilers in spoiler tags until after the game has been out for at least a week IN EUROPE. And if revelation is released separately there as well, revelation content will also need to be tagged until that has been out for everyone for a week, not just the SEs. If something may even possibly be a spoiler just tag it so you don't ruin it for someone else. And if you care about your friends list remember to wrap the text inside the tag with [] so it doesn't show up in your recent posts.

SO. I plan on going ahead and picking up the N3dsXL itself in-store tomorrow so I can set my systems up for transfer since I already have everything I need. My order for the special Fates bundle shipped this morning, but isn't due to arrive until the 24th Feb (Wednesday).
I've been doing well staying spoiler-free so far, so I probably won't lurk much here. This topic's participants tend to be really good about tagging spoilers, so it probably won't change much tbh.

Thanks, Ellie! Now I have to go create a flowchart in order to properly pair off everybody based on their personalities alone and so that no one gets left behind. That....that IS the point of this game, right?

To be fair, they were as interesting as a sack of potatoes before that.

Though he's become the new Kellam as a result.

Turning that frown all the way down
I'm kinkshaming Hisame.
Some of the voice actors are alright, while some just sound completely off. Like Saizo is okay, while Kagero's doesn't fit her at all. I also learned how to say both Inigo (Inn-E-go) and Ryoma (the R is silent) so that'll be messing me up.

I called Travis Willingham being Shiro's voice actor just this morning and I was pleasantly surprised that he was indeed Shiro's VA. I can hear him perfectly saying "Now I'm mad." like Knuckles in that one Sonic Boom episode.

keep in mind that, like anna/say'ri/tiki/others in awakening, there are quite a few characters who can ONLY marry corrin so you cant pair all of them. and in revelation each character only gets a couple of choices of partners from the other route, so for example odin x sakura wont happen. speaking of supports...

[quite a few 2nd gen s-supports are now platonic. fates doesnt have a spot for relationships on the status screen so they arent replaced with "companion" or anything and you still get the same stat boosts. surprisingly most people are happy with it, i thought the people obsessed with the original vrsion would be coming out of the woodwork angry. i'm a little mixed. i think overall it's a nice change as opposed to trying to romantically stick everyone together. but a lot of the supports themselves feel a bit clunky, maybe because they're working with an original japanese version where it WAS romantic. several are either one person confessing and the other saying they dont feel the same way, while others are just talking about being the best of friends and it feels like they tried wayyyy too hard. but i'm sort of excited if the next game doesn't have kids (pleeeeease) platonic paired endings may come back???]
