Title: Fire Emblem Fates (Birthright, Conquest, and Revelation)
Post by: Doof on January 14, 2015, 09:48:55 AM
So they just announced the new FE game.  I'm so excited since Awakening was amazing.  I bet it will be just as good if not better.

Initial Direct Video:

the atmosphere has definitely taken a turn for the deeply oriental, which i'm not complaining about at all because japanese weapons and armor always look awesome

also it won't have the problem with the dumb-looking spears in this game because they're using naginatas which are actually designed for swinging

if you're going to use the same engine, then this is the way to make your game not seem stale - totally change the atmosphere

tl;dr i lik dis

Wonder how long it's going to take to come to America. Earliest I see it releasing here is Spring 2016 at the soonest, but I'm banking on Fall/Winter 2016.

Was the thing where your position on the map changed the scenery during the battles exist in Awakening or is this new visual stuff. Because it's kind of neat.

it's called Fire Emblem if in Japan, but I'd leave the thread title the way it is for now

I'm really digging those ice fans.

I bet dancers now wield the fan as their weapon or something, and there's some magical ones (like the fan displayed in the video) that deal Magic-based damage instead of the usual Strength-based. Or maybe they're all Magic-based, I dunno.

They still should have been stronger though. Thy were pretty weak on their own.

Also I really hope they do something similar to Dragon Age: Inquisition in this game in terms of the story. In that game, you are forced to pick sides between the mages or the templars. Befriending one group makes you the enemy of the other. I think it'd be cool if you were forced to pick between the eastern and western sides in this game (Iwata did mention there would be more choice and affect from your actions). That allows for more replayability because there are essentialally two stories depending on what side you take.

To be fair, they couldn't even attack until Awakening. If they were actually very good at fighting on top of being able to give other units a second turn, then that would likely be quite overpowered.

Title: Re: New Fire Emblem game (title not available)
Post by: Epic Nitwit on April 01, 2015, 09:07:42 PM
ok so what ive gathered is that in japan:
-two versions of the game. one story for each side
-buy one story, get the other as discounted dlc
-theres also a third dlc story
-theres a limited edition that has all three stories plus extra merch stuff
-both games are the same up until chapter 6
-if you get the eShop version, you get both stories and can choose which side youre on after chapter 6 (which is irreversible, apparently)

seems like an odd arrangement, but that seems to be how it works

sooo im assuming that when they bring it west they'll just have one version, which will be like the eShop version.

some interesting tidbits i found on serenes forest:
http://serenesforest.net/2015/04/01/fire-emblem-official-site-snippets/

in regards to how the two versions work, it seems like i wasnt quite right about the download version. turns out that by 'irreversible' it actually means you cant choose the opposite side from what you chose until you get the dlc.

other highlights:

as an aside, the site apparently emphasises that individually each of the two versions has about as much content as awakening did, so i guess its not like youre buying half a game if you only get one version (and also i guess itd be a good bargain if youre paying a discounted dlc price for what apparently doubles your game...)

also i like how the avatar this time is a lord who can turn into a dragon thing. its a nice change of pace

Oh is that what the differences are. I never grinded in Awakening anyway so I guess either is fine. I like the look of Nohr better anyway. I also like the sound of that third one.

I didn't even realize that was the avatar who was transforming, pfft.

I love what they're doing with the different modes; one is like most Fire Emblem games in which you don't have a world map to grind on in between chapters, while the other is lack a select few games where you are given that world map to infinitely grind on. Some may argue forcing them on one side like this is a bad idea, but I honestly like it and think the sides they've given each style to make a lot of sense.

I guess the two games thing makes more sense now, though I still think they could be one.

Regardless, if the Special Edition comes outside of Japan, it will be the definite version.

goddang this game looks amazing, I'm personally hoping we get the single combined version instead of separate versions but whatever. my friend was hoping there'd be a third story where you could choose neither, so that actually being a thing is p. cool

Post by: Epic Nitwit on April 02, 2015, 05:05:26 AM
atm i'm probably gonna choose hoshido and then nohr, since i like doing things from easiest to hardest when i play video games. but idk maybe once i play i might change my mind (i remember playing sacred stones and initially i was gonna choose eirika's path but then i changed my mind and chose ephraim's instead so maybe i'll do the same this time)
if there wasn't the fact that the two stories have different difficulties then from what we know atm i would probably go with nohr tho. they seem like they'll have a more interesting story than hoshido which seems like it'll be more along the lines of a typical FE story (but i like the whole ancient japanese style hoshido has, thats pretty cool)

Somehow I don't really like the design of the main character much. I guess the female MC has nice hair. They'll probably grow on me over time though. The black/white scheme is supposed to go with the games split paths theme I assume. They have no shoes so they can show off the characters having feet lol.

I guess since the smtxfe pictures are there too, I can see some sort of evil Chrom there. Some guy in reddit comments pointed out that two enemies were named Gangrel and Aversa too, the flying head and the evil looking Pegasus. Tiki's there too. Someone pointed out that the one in the black revealing outfit was Lyn-esque but I don't really see it. It all looks pretty at least.

Oh jeez, this game.

I really kinda maybe sorta hope a little bit that Intsys fixes the mistakes they made with Awakening in this one, for reals. The Nohr/Hoshido stuff sounds cool but they shouldn't have split it into two games, especially if they're gonna switch around story elements in each one.

limited weapon uses have been dropped as well

i'm hoping the maps are tougher to compensate for the latter. i kinda liked casual mode because FE:A was my first fire emblem and it helped ease me into the game but phoenix mode sounds way too easy

Post by: Kazuma on May 12, 2015, 11:50:04 AM
I honestly think they've just gone wrong at this point.

Casual mode was fine because it eased people in and wasn't too different from the standard formula.

But Phoenix mode, that just breaks completely away from that and just promotes more recklessness, almost in an Advance Wars style which is not the route I think the series should ever take, even optionally. I can't understand why anyone would even want to play on this mode... granted I'll never touch it so it doesn't really bother me, pfft.

On the other hand, the removal of limited weapon uses is such a horrible decision and I desperately pray they reconsider that move, or at least make that a kind of mode so players aren't forced to adapt to even lesser levels of strategy. If not, I'm obliged to slap whoever ultimately pitched this idea because their design sense sucks.

This news kind of destroyed my hype a bit, but I'm still hoping they can compensate by giving us harder maps overall if they really want to go along with forcing something so foolish on to everyone.

Title: Re: Fire Emblem If Thread
Post by: Alexander Hamilton on May 12, 2015, 12:08:55 PM
For once in my life, I agree with Ice completely. I don't like the decision to abolish the number of uses on an item at all. It completely removes a sense of strategical gameplay in the series which has also been a key part of the series for the longest time. As tedious as it probably is, one of my favorite things to do in any of the games is figuring out the best weapons to put on units and having to adjust to how many times you can use that weapon. It's such a fun part of the series and I will be SO upset if they make this a mandatory change.

Also, Phoenix mode is just ridiculous. I was fine with Casual Mode in Awakening, I honestly thought it was a very good decision to implement it and I even had it on in my Awakening playthrough (although I still treated it like it wasn't casual, basically restarted my save file whenever a unit died). But Phoenix is just ridiculous. Stop babying people through the dang game. There's a reason why you made casual in the first place.

I'm still really looking forward to this game, but these are just really bad choices on Intelligent Systems' part, and I do really, really hope the abolishing uses of weapons thing is made optional. It's horrible.

I will reserve judgment for when I see the gameplay in its entirety. It is possible they're planning to implement new features that clash with the traditional weapon duration system. If keeping said system were to clutter up the experience, removing it would be a sensible move.

They better deliver an interesting alternative though.

As for the Phoenix mode: It sounds pretty dumb, but I'm just not gonna use it. Problem solved.

I think like some others around the web have said, lack of durability will be good as long as they don't throw 1 million god-powerful weapons at you. That way you don't just sweep the map because everyone on your team has an infinite-use Brave weapon while the opposing team are still using Steel and other C-tier weapons.

On the other hand, I hope they don't save all the good and interesting weapons until like the last three chapters.

extended trailer from japanese direct detailing 'my castle' town customization(?), it also confirms sharing teams via streetpass again i believe.

also amiibo functionality, you get fully animated and voiced marth, ike, robin and lucina units if you're one of the two lucky people in the world who have all of those amiibo

if a subbed trailer comes along i'll replace it with that

ALSO, JOKER (the butler on the right) IS MINE (whenever fire emblem if themes are a thing)

i like the way this town builder thing looks, and i'd probably like it more if i could understand what the guy is saying

the fully animated amiibos is a nice surprise, i wonder if they'll recycle robin and lucina's portraits from awakening or make something new.

Looks like you have your own shark, squirrel, flying thing to feed. I'm not fond of town building stuff tbh. Looks like that red haired ponytail guy in armour is a guy, I didn't know. I like the hair on that mage character that looked to be in some cabbage fields. Long and sorta spiky dark hair. I spotted a severa clone too.

When I saw avatar invite characters with hearts next to them to his room at night i was like '*bleep*, nintendo what're you doing. where was the 18+ warning on your video'. fe amie, looks pretty dumb honestly. pokemon amie made at least some sense since pokemon were like pets.

You can dress up your characters for battle I think? If you can change character clothing colours permanently then I think that'd be great, doubt it though.

yeah idk this my castle thing doesnt really interest me much at all.

Nohr looking like a good pick after all. Hoshido archer still looks like chicken cosplay.

The final boss team is a buffet with the final boss unit being the most extravagant exotic food possible and the battle takes place in the kitchen.

Nohr: 1 vs Hoshido: 2 then

I like ryouma, the red haired peg knight and black-hair em but not really any of the other ones on that side. Possibly chicken archer just because he makes me laugh a little every time I see him.

It doesn't seem to be very significant (literally just an observation of a character revealed), and if you were looking to avoid spoilers you wouldn't be in this thread at all, unless this was post-release stuff.

That said, it would help if the spoiler box (or a short comment) actually vaguely described its contents so people won't click because they probably don't know what it could be.

Ok so I watched the first minute or so of that demo so far and the person said that after a few chapters you can choose a path and branch off.  So in total for both games there are 4 different paths? 

I hope there is a list of differences.  Maybe the differences will only be like a Pokemon thing were some items and units are exculsive.  I kind of hope so, because there was nothing too different in the other version of Pokemon games that made me go "OMG I need the other version now"

I took everything the players said with a large grain of salt.

By a path they could just mean a game, which would keep in tune with the aforementioned three paths in total (Nohr, Hoshido and Neither).

You get a few chapters into the game then choose between Nohr and Hoshido (or whichever one you're locked into if you purchase the non-digital version) and then you're locked in permanently unless you buy the other version. There's also that third path that Ice mentioned that is apparently coming as future DLC where you choose neither.

You can go to the japanese site to see which units are exclusive or this image (http://serenesforest.net/wp-content/uploads/2015/06/famitsu1806-relationship1.jpg). So far there are seven units (or six, since someone mentioned your gender decides whether you get the maid or the butler on the treehouse so I assume you can't have both) that you can get regardless of which version and 15 unique to each side. No idea what's going on with the Nohr/Hoshido rulers.

You can grind for exp in the Hoshido path if you want, Nohr doesn't have that option. Each version will have 28 levels. Other than those, the only other differences we know of so far are the obvious ones like each side having a different storyline and different classes.

Oh and My Castle probably has some small differences between versions.

well from basically everything they've said, the games are exactly the same until the 6th chapter and then they go completely different. iirc there's different stories, different maps, different difficulties and different units (although some are shared across both, and characters from the other stories will probably appear as bosses or something i'd say...)

so yea, the pokemon comparison isn't really the best. i'd say its more akin to something like the oracle zelda games? i havent actually played them so i dont know how much they link up with each other
Oh and My Castle probably has some small differences between versions.

from what i can tell so far, you don't get experience or money in My Castle, but idk what else.

Several exclusive items that probably lead to exclusive weapons, and it obviously looks drastically different between Nohr and Hoshido which is probably the reason for that.

*sigh* man why couldn't they just announce it like this in the beginning, i was honestly excited to have two games on one cart. if they're both radically different games then that's cool because it means more to play but honestly i'm not excited about having to choose which version i want to pay for first. sucks man

i'll probably go with birthright (hoshido) first because i'm still relatively new to fire emblem and probably won't like the increase of difficulty in nohr

if there's a special edition with both on one cart i'm going for that instead.

"We can confirm that Fire Emblem Fates for Nintendo 3DS, which launches in Japan on June 25, 2015, and is coming to the U.S. and Europe in 2016, includes the possibility for a same-sex marriage to take place between the main character created by the gamer and another character in the game," Nintendo said in a statement.
Well the presence of only a single opportunity for same-sex marriage is a little lacking, but otherwise it's a good first step*. Great to hear that they've listened.

I believe that played when you fight the Marth Amiibo so that would mean FE1 i think.

By the way, the amiibo fights aren't easy if Marth is any indication so you can't just put in your Marth/Ike/Robin/Lucina early on and be all like 'let me just get these strong units and break the game'. Unless you're playing phoenix but at that point you're already broken.

I don't care for the slower paced versions of Aqua's Song. The crazy intense one was great (barely even heard the Aqua's Song in it tbh) and the grand sounding one was good. The other three I just couldn't care about even when I tried.

I do love the field battle theme though, the one that plays during SpotPass battles.

Those are FE Chipher card units, they work just like amiibo except they're from the FE cipher cards. The only ones I've seen scanned in so far are the Marth, Masked Lucina and Minerva cards. At the very least, Minerva has a model that hasn't been seen on any of the other playable units so that could mean; it's the default enemy Pegasus Warrior model, it's what a unit re-classed into Pegasus Warrior looks like or it's actually just a unique model for the card itself. Really pulling for the latter because spotpass/DLC units in Awakening looked like garbage.

Whether we get those in the english version or not depends on how they decide to handle the FE Cipher cards.

Yeah that was all the r/fireemblem front page was for a while. Debates about whether FE is ruined forever or how it'll be localised. It was hilarious, but now that plot details and support conversations have started becoming the main topic I haven't really seen it being mentioned.

I'm neutral to all the fanservice tbh, I'm not going to pull the 'it's optional' argument since it's there and whether it's optional or not doesn't change that it exists now. I wouldn't be surprised if they just slap an M rating on it all things considered, I'd actually be okay with that since more than anything I hate the feeling that; regardless of what it is, content has been removed. Though I'd be fine with having the s-rank dialogue toned down, some of them get a little heated.

Japanese gamers got a big surprise with their copy of Fire Emblem Fates in the form of an unannounced online multiplayer function. Online matches can be played with friends, random players, or locally. Battles consist of 5 characters on each team drawn from a player's save file from any point in the game. In addition, you can set standard rules or place limitations like no items or no hero promotions. There will be no fog of war and each player will have 5 minutes to take their turn.
The five maps for online multiplayer are called “Mountain Village,” “Opera House,” “Destroyed City,” “Crumbled Fortress,” and “Palace,” and each will have a Dragon Vein feature and destructible objects. You can also play in either player's My Castle. Players can decide on a handicap, and after the battle is over you will have a choice to blacklist the other player for bad behavior.

We didn't get a full direct translation, but a Mini-Direct did air here in North America at least. I don't remember Fire Emblem being in it.

I remember one part during the My Castle segment of the Japanese Direct showing a fight in the player's castle, and I think there was indeed five characters on the player's side.

I haven't watched them all because streamers take their time doing story stuff, too busy grinding supports/face-rubbing. But I do pretty much know everything that happens in both, vaguely. At least all the major stuff.

So the European release of this game might be a single version rather than Birthright/Conquest

https://www.reddit.com/r/fireemblem/comments/3g9x2j/amazon_listing_suggests_single_release_for_fire/

One of the responses to the top comment says this;

The latest Nintendo document for Earnings states Fire Emblem Fates in one version for the EU release and two for the US-release. Read Page 4 (http://www.nintendo.co.jp/ir/pdf/2015/150729_2e.pdf) , it's virtually confirmed.

and they're right, it's only listed as Fire Emblem Fates instead of having both versions side by side like shown in the US part. I guess I don't have to choose now, I wonder how they'll handle the third path though.

interesting, but i'm a little skeptical because this doesn't explicitly confirm what happens after you make the choice. for all we know, the game could lock away whichever path you don't choose, like the digital version.

i thought the third path was confirmed to be dlc in all regions
Title: Re: Fire Emblem Fates (Birthright and Conquest)
Post by: BMB on August 09, 2015, 02:16:07 AM
I think what happens is that it locks you in to either birthright or conquest as soon as you make your decision, and then you can get the other as DLC along with the third path.

I'll probably grab them all eventually, starting off with Conquest. I might not get the next as soon as I'm finished with one because by the time I beat Conquest I might have spent 20+ hours on it already and I might just be burnt out by then.

I'll hold out on pre-ordering Fates until a release date shows up.

if i'm right, the whole package, considering the discounts you get on the eshop should cost $115 australian, which means that effing special edition is still a bloody rip-off for $199 over here

I would probably go with Soleil if her support with male Kamui wasn't so messed up. It's also really *bleep*ing stupid how she's bisexual but isn't a bisexual option for Kamui. Thankfully localisation might fix her so I could possibly switch to her. I'm pretty sure Treehouse already said they're changing her support for the localisation so that's a step.

lol the feature was ridiculous and the 'b-b-but it's optional!' argument doesn't dismiss the fact that it existing in the first place is enough to turn people off from the game, so it seems nintendo cut it entirely to avoid that conflict

good riddance tbh

honestly hoping that localising fates has encouraged nintendo to take a better approach to the next FE game in regards to character writing and story.

Post by: Nadeshiko Kagamihara on January 26, 2016, 07:01:02 PM
I can understand some of the people who are a little miffed, it was the part of the game that had most of the plot-irrelevant character's voice acting and for Conquest it's the only way outside of grinding streetpass battles to build support points without much effort. and the idea of having a section of the game cut out without replacement is a little sketch, though if they do replace it with something better that'd be sweet.

and some people just want to rub faces.

also kotaku said it so lol who knows whether it's even true or not.

Some people are speculating that it's possible they just removed the petting part of MyRoom but kept the Live2D viewer models, removing the petting mini-game and just cutting to conversations or something new since there's a (!) bubble above the MyRoom place (http://i.imgur.com/mPbCl5Q.png?1) in an IGN video about amiibo's even though that's something that only shows up when the mini-game is ready to go.

So they must've at least replaced it with something, which is good to know.

Also they changed Asset/Flaw into Boon/Bane pfffft

Yeah, the models are pretty well done from what I've seen, though I haven't seen them moving around, just those two images that show all of them side by side. They'll have to use them for S-Supports otherwise they'd have nothing to replace the 'confession' scene with.

Yeah, I really liked the Live2d models they used. I'd be 100% fine if they kept the models and conversations and removed the petting aspect, since it would be a waste to just throw them away.

lol the feature was ridiculous and the 'b-b-but it's optional!' argument doesn't dismiss the fact that it existing in the first place is enough to turn people off from the game, so it seems nintendo cut it entirely to avoid that conflict

good riddance tbh

honestly hoping that localising fates has encouraged nintendo to take a better approach to the next FE game in regards to character writing and story.

Regardless if you find that feature ridiculous, it was implemented and some people like it. And as you said, if you don't like it, don't use it. If Kotaru is right, then Nintendo of America has gone garbage again to remove it, because lol it's too provocative? That's what ERSB should actually do, adapt their rating to the game and not adapt the game to their rating.
First they removed the bust slider in Xenoblade Chronicles X because boobs must be banned for them, and now this? That's just plain censorship of game content which is not even controversial.
Title: Re: Fire Emblem Fates (Birthright and Conquest)
Post by: Grima on January 27, 2016, 06:01:07 AM
lol ur comparing this to a bust slider that from my perspective is a first-class pandering device? considering your comments about camilla in another thread it's not surprising to see where your chips fall

i wouldn't have cared if the feature was unchanged because it is optional, yet i don't find myself outraged with its removal because i consider the feature quite ridiculous as there are certainly better ways to build relationships between characters that don't involve creepily touching their faces (like standing them side-by-side in battle and forcing them to protect each other until they fall in love /s). with the evidence given above suggesting that they've opted for a less perverted way to include the bonuses received from the mode, my only real complaint regarding the actually important cut content (extra dialouge, the great character models) has been rendered null so how can i personally object to the change? i'm only one case though, the 'don't like it, don't use it' argument doesn't work on everyone and it seems nintendo understands that, hence the outright removal.

sure cry censorship but with costly localisation efforts like this and nintendo being an international company looking to maximise its revenue from all regions, it's only natural that they would adjust the game to suit the audience they're marketing it towards (which, if i'm not mistaken in the case of fire emblem, is teenagers and not creepy adults) in other regions instead of just translating the game as is, so what they've done is not completely irrational.

not to mention cultural differences dictate that a feature well-received in one region (in fact, i'm not even sure japan appreciated the pandering in this game very much) could very likely not go over as well in another so that means less positive reception, less sales, yadda yadda talking out of my ass here. that's pretty much the point of localisation vs. translation and to put it bluntly, it's hopeless to want a 1:1 translated nintendo experience across all regions because nintendo clearly doesn't roll like that. you may find that *bleep* but it's not like nintendo cares tbh.

Just to play devil's advocate, the bust slider change in Xenoblade X was pretty dumb considering it was limiting the customisation of an already limited character creator. I don't really see how it could even be seen as a 'first-class' pandering device, not every woman has the same bust size, that's just common sense. It didn't affect me because I created a male character but I still thought it was an unnecessary change.

the petting is on a completely different level than a basic character customisation feature tho

I like Boon/Bane, I love aliterations.

The only thing I didn't like about removing the breast slider is that even though it's definitely meant as fanservice, you can't make them smaller since I felt the default size was too big.

About the face rubbing thing, it's mostly likely to be replaced with a new minigame because My Room is still in.

i dont see how a bust size slider can be considered 'definitely meant as fanservice' in the context of a character creator

anyway this topic isnt about xcx.

Hahahaha well I hope this "small change" allows nintendo do as they please or even butcher your precious rhythm whatever games. It's just a matter of time that they cut more and more content and snowball it it more.. Like for example games not being localized because "it's not the right audience" or worse they cater to the more butthurt bases why could prolly make radical character changes just 'cause "lol *bleep* you were doing this for more cash* like for exchange say they change ashley to a cutesy wutesy girl instead of keeping her as she is just to "please more people".

If you use them carefully, they'll never even be attacked. Plus Ninian and Nils can use the stat buffing rings, which give them even more utility. And the Herons can do other *bleep* which makes them helpful. But I guess their utility depends on your playstyle.

So apparently the English version of Fates is 2028 blocks larger, so it looks like dual audio is probably still in.

I'm so used to hearing the Japanese voices that listening to the English ones was strange (especially the ones that just sound way different), I know the option was there in Awakening but wasnt sure if it would be back for this one so that's good.

If you own one version, you can just download the other one at half price or something like along those lines. If you own Conquest,  Birthright is cheaper and vice versa. The third path is always cheaper since it requires at least one of the other two versions.

Even that kinda sucks because it's going to be minimum $100 over here for people who want it all, the cheapest I can find Conquest is $55.

That is very good, because I really hate that thing they do where a character says something in a textbox, and then the voice-over says something entirely different. Like, the text says "Why yes, I would like a cup of tea", and the audio says "Really?" or "That is interesting", or "I am a hippopotamus".

Switching the voices to a language I don't understand is really great, because then the dissonance doesn't bother me as much.

More name changes:

Midoriko -> Midori
Deere -> Dwyer

I'm fine with Midori, I think it fits more as a name than Midoriko. It's also funny because Fire Emblem Midori is the name of a FE8 romhack. Dwyer is fine, I wasn't a fan of Deere as a name. I still think he looks like L from Death Note.

He also has other fates drawings from a while ago but someone probably posted them here already.

The games are starting to get reviews on Metacritic. Conquest has an 89, Birthright has an 87, Special Edition has an 88, and although Revelations doesn't have enough reviews to get a score, two critics gave it a 90 rating.

If you have the cart for one of the games, the blocks it takes up to download the other routes is far less.

Looking around it appears it's something like 900 blocks for the route opposite to the cart and 600 blocks for that final route.

Yeah they probably just got rid of enough to make the game fit on the cart and left most of it there. People were hacking into the game and playing Revelation maps/getting chapter details before Revelation DLC was even released over there.

I just want a release date. I don't mind if it's months away, this isn't the first time I've had to wait half a dozen months for a game already in English. Let me know how long I have to wait please.

okay so

I preordered Conquest but it somehow got messed up and wound up with Birthright instead.  That doesn't really bother me as I'm going to play both anyway.  Not going to complain since at least I have the game now.

Up to Chapter 8 so far, thoroughly enjoying it.  Plot's doing a good job of making me question who's right or wrong and giving me a little case of the feels along the way.  Favorite character so far is Saizo because he's the edgelord ninja.

Nohr Chapter 10 is probably my favourite chapter in the series. It's so well designed and requires a lot of strategy. As for characters, I like Arthur, Selena, Elise and Jakob the most so far.

I kinda regret naming the avatar after myself.  You have all these characters like Kaze, Saizo, Orochi, Ryoma, Subaki, and.... Justin.  It kinda takes me out of it just a bit. :P

Also the "Before Awakening" map is fun.  As much as I enjoy this game so far, I kinda miss Chrom and the gang.

use the background colors. the primary color will let you know what weapon type it is and the color at the very bottom shows you what weapon type it's best against.

So I'm still at Chapter 10, but I'm still finding it extremely fun and I'm able to find a new strategy everytime I lose the chapter. I'm able to hold the defenses together perfectly until everything goes to *bleep* and Takumi uses the Dragon Vein. One time, though, I was able to make it to Turn 11 (when the chapter ends) and then Effie died. I was worried she was going to die, but there was literally nothing I could do since Elise couldn't move (so she couldn't Rescue Effie or Freeze an enemy) so I picked a god and prayed.

They throw so much *bleep* at you at the very last few turns.  Lost 3 times at the 11th turn before actually completing it.

Birthright Ch. 13 is dicks.

It has like, 2 waves of enemies, one headed up by Hans and the other by Camilla.  Wave one is easy and you can use a Dragon Vein to take out Hans.  The second wave doesn't move and to get into attack range and by doing that, you get into Camilla's range and she just *bleep*s everything up for me.  Also, she has Bowbreaker in her skill set and ugh.

I'm up to Conquest Ch. 9 and if Birthright is giving me this much of a hard time I fear what's waiting for me on this route...

Let me tell you.

At least in Kongquest, chapter 12's map is the second worst FE map that I've played.  Talk about having everything stacked against you.
Title: Re: Fire Emblem Fates (Birthright, Conquest, and Revelation) It's here!!!
Post by: Marcia on February 25, 2016, 12:16:03 PM
Chapter 12 is really good from what I've played, actually. It requires you to play quickly and not to turtle, and that is very important in a map in my opinion. The potions are an interesting gimmick too. Definitely one of the better maps I've played for a while, and better than any map Awakening had.

Shruikens are literally the one thing tripping me up in this game.  They're just not even comparable to any other weapon before it.  The fact that the enemy units who uses them come in swarms and they always attack from two spaces away makes them annoying and and just difficult to work around.

Eh I still feel like Killer Weapons are easier (unless they are like *bleep*ing killer shruikens ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh) because there's usually only one of them in any given area and they are relatively easy to plan around and get a weapon to ohko them.  Plus they are part of the weapon triangle I am familiar with at least helps my confidence.

On another topic Midori as a Merchant with the Level 5 skill is a godsend on Conquest. Luck% chance (increased by 20% due to her personal skill) of getting a gold bar on each turn until turn 7 is great. Mine also has Luck+4 from Azura so her chance is even higher.

I stopped playing FE6 for like a week before because Rutger was killed by a 1% crit and I was almost done Chapter 7 (which is a really annoying chapter)

EDIT: lol I was playing Chapter 24 earlier and halfway through the map Selena got hit by an 8% hit rate and died

Ok, now I've beaten Conquest.

Gameplay and objectives were good, I like several of the Conquest characters, but I prefer the Hoshido cast more, but that story...

Jesus, the story is absolutely dreadful. I heard it sucked, but man. I don't think I'll revisit it except to get some of the path exclusive conversations.

Onto Revelation.

So I'm playing Birthright and the maps aren't as bad as I thought they would be. Reminds of FE8 where the maps are pretty okay but the enemies are way too weak. The story is a huge improvement. Corrin is a much cooler character in Birthright.

I haven't done so yet, but I heard in harder difficulties, there tends to be more enemies in Birthright, while Conquest enemies tend to get more skills, and Revelation enemies actually do get higher stats, so it's interesting that they specifically made each game have their own variation of difficulty.

Finally finished Conquest.

Casualties were kept to a minimum (sorry shura but i'm not playing that awful wind tribe stage for the fifth time) until endgame which wiped out a small chunk of my units.  Whatever, I'll play it again later without any deaths.

Gonna hold off on Revelations for a bit.  Feeling kinda burnt out on Fates for now.

iirc all the units you recruit are either automatically recruited by simply playing through the game or via talking to conspicuous characters who usually have a quote at the beginning of each chapter. the exception to is this some child units (e.g. Forest) who have a specific unlock condition that is explicitly stated at the beginning of their respective chapters

not Nyx

yeah i'm actually more worried about accessing the chapters for the child units since i heard that there was an issue with the male/female ratio in the game and that if I marry Corrin to someone who isn't corrinsexual then i'll miss out on a child basically, is that true?

If you want all the children you can only marry Male Corrin to a corrinsexual or a child unit. I don't think Female Corrin has any problems like this.

F!Corrin doesn't have any problems. I married Corrin to Silas on Conquest, Azama on Birthright and Laslow on Revs and I still have the potential to get every kid (I haven't unlocked every kid on any file but I could if I wanted to).

Also I find the existance of Corrinsexuals silly. There's no reason people like Reina, Flora, Scarlet, Izana and Gunther should be limited to one support for no reason.

As someone whose all-time favorite series is Fire Emblem and is heavily interested in trying Fates at some point (hopefully within the year), how do you guys recommend going about playing these games with Birthright, Conquest, and Revelations? Is there a specific order you should play them in, is there one you should start out with first, etc.? Also, how do these games compare to Awakening? I wasn't too big on Awakening compared to previous Fire Emblem games so I'm a bit curious if it's better/worse/the same in any way.
Title: Re: Fire Emblem Fates (Birthright, Conquest, and Revelation) It's here!!!
Post by: Shygul on May 19, 2016, 07:24:39 AM
IMO Revalation is best when done last, but it really doesn't matter much which order you play them in.

Awakening and Fates are similar though Fates does add features that Awakening didn't have. as a whole Fates is better than Awakening (though Awakening is still an A+ game) but individually neither of the versions is as good as Awakening. however, whether or not Fates is better than Awakening is completely subjective, so whether or not you'll like it more depends entirely on you
Title: Re: Fire Emblem Fates (Birthright, Conquest, and Revelation) It's here!!!
Post by: Weasel on May 19, 2016, 07:31:30 AM
basically

Birthright is more like Awakening in that there are multiple grinding opportunities.

Conquest is more like most of the older titles with a more linear structure and no chances to grind.  Has more varied mission objectives, as well.  Also has Odin.  (http://www.marioboards.com/Themes/mariowiki2/images/post/thumbup.gif)

Haven't finished Revelation yet but it seems to be a mix of both.  You can grind but the maps seem a bit harder than Birthright's.  Or maybe I just suck, idk.

The pair-up mechanic also isn't nearly as overpowered as it was in Awakening.

I wasn't too big on Awakening compared to previous Fire Emblem games so I'm a bit curious if it's better/worse/the same in any way.

Fates improves on Awakening a lot imo, there's still a lot of pandering stuff and waifu mechanics, but the gameplay is more of a return to the classic style in Conquest and has more strategic depth with extremely varied objectives (yay defend and escape return!) and a huge focus on skills. I would definitely place its gameplay among top 5 or even top 3 among the entire series.
Birthright is more Awakeningy with big, boring open maps with enemies placed randomly and everything is route or kill boss (there's one escape but it's a really lol map that is trivialised by pairing Corn with a flier) and Revelations is absolutely awful gameplay-wise, half of the units are almost unusable and the maps are gimmicky pieces of *bleep* with snow shovelling simulators and ambush hallway *bleep*. The story isn't really that great in any route, and it's notably bad in Conquest, at least in my experience.

EDIT: Oh and if you were planning on playing Birthright, be sure to A-Support your Corrin with Kaze, it's important.

honestly I didn't mind the unit imbalance in Revelation. it made the game more challenging and therefore more enjoyable

also Conquest easily had the best plot of the three versions imo. it felt unique and emotional since Corrin actually did bad stuff for the greater good instead of the usual I NEVER DO ANYTHING EVIL, CHECK OUT MY BONER OF RIGHTEOUSNESS

Making Odin and Arthur absolutely useless isn't "fun", it prevents people from using their favourite characters. Lowmanning doesn't make the game harder either, in fact it makes the game easier because all you need to do in revelations is spam Corn, Ryoma, Xander, Takumi, Camilla and Leo and win. In Conquest you had to plan around your whole party because everyone could contribute. Even weak units like Nyx and Mozu could man the fire orb/ballista in Chapter 10. In Revelations you just bench everyone except the royals causing them to become even more powerful. Also the unit imbalance is lazy. Most characters just have their base stats from Birthright/Conquest with a few small and irrelevant bonuses and were placed in a later chapter. It's lazy to take Odin's base stats from Chapter 8 Conquest, and place them in Chapter 17 Revelations with small boosts. I doubt Revelations was even throughly balance checked.

I would rather have difficulty like Conquest, where it's mind-numbingly hard, but everyone is viable, and you're forced to use all your characters and resources to win. CQ Chapter 10 is an excellent example where it's a very hard map, that forces you to use every one of your characters to win.

I didn't find that many of the characters to be completely useless in Revelation, especially after grinding with them (although they were still weak). I only spammed the really powerful characters during like the last three chapters. so for the majority of the game I was mainly using the weaker units, ergo it actually was hard/fun for me and it definitely wasn't easier. but I do agree that Conquest is better gameplay-wise

Ok I have started playing.

Doing conquest atm as I'm going straight into the challenge.

First playthrough will probably be quite casual as I won't fuss over perfect units/perfect supports and just play it through and see how it turns out. I'm going to marry Jakob this time.

I am enjoying it so far, the temporary units business is kind of annoying at the start as its like I don't want to use certain units since I know you don't keep them meaning I try and have mu do everything, but now I am on a path that should stop eventually I hope. I will play more later and probably end up playing for hours on end like I always do.

Some features!!!:
- Swiss-style tournament of 1v1 online matches, 5 units each and a small variety of maps to choose from.
- Restrictions on certain skills/units that can be used (affects Replicate, Galeforce, Warp, Lethality, Breaker abilities, etc.
- Takumi

so yes if you want this to exist then please offer thoughts on the rules I've given so that I can make it fun and balanced for everyone. :ashley:

So I was able to beat Conquest on Classic Hard mode.

How does the difficulty of that compare to Birthright's modes?

Like for instance, I'm thinking to maintain the level of challenge, to go into it blindly at Classic Lunatic. Would that comparatively be harder or easier than Conquest's Classic Hard?

Birthright Lunatic is far, far, far easier than Conquest Hard. It's a joke really. Ryoma Takumi and Corrin just break it in half.

Post by: Marcia on July 29, 2016, 03:41:27 PM
It's not my favourite in the series but I did like Fates, and I would recommend it.

Go Conquest if you want a challenge, since Conquest is one of the most difficult in the series on the higher difficulties, and even puts up a challenge on normal mode. The plot is definitely not a high point, though, so don't expect much storywise.

Birthright is a lot easier, in fact one of the easiest in the series, even on the highest difficulty, and is more geared towards beginners of the series, with more simple maps and characters who can stomp entire maps (I'm looking at you Ryoma and Takumi). The plot was better than Conquest in my opinion, but you're not exactly looking at quality writing in any of the paths.

Revelations is the final path, and is DLC and it's recommended you play it last, as it contains spoilers for the other two main routes. It features the characters from both routes. Personally, Revelations was my least favourite of the three, as it's a huge mess gameplay-wise and story-wise. It also answers questions Birthright and Conquest don't answer. (I don't really agree with the practice of holding back plot points as DLC but whatever) so if you want them answered you have to play Revelations. Or you can just look it up of course.

So overall, if you're newer to the series, I recommend Birthright first, and if you liked it, you can download Conquest as DLC for half price. If you consider yourself more of a veteran, I recommend Conquest first. Revelations is alright but you can tell it was lazily put together.

Also not my favourite but I really did like Conquest, and on its own it's almost a consideration for my favourite Fire Emblem, though not quite.

It mainly excels in terms of gameplay (it's amazing), but the music (I imagine this is consistent across the whole package) is also excellent and I do quite enjoy most of the game's cast, despite it being relatively small playable-wise.

Having only beaten this version (on Hard Classic), I'm biased and would recommend Conquest, but I'll second what Glitchy is saying and would recommend against picking it over Birthright if you don't consider yourself very experienced with the series.

just beat awakening yesterday after 5 years (was my first 3DS game) through the power of donnel and the terminator children. was gona go to gamesto and buy the physical copy of conquest but I had $9 on my Nintendo store so I bought it digitally :(  no spoilers but I hope its fun and has zero time travel tropes that every other 3ds game on the planet has (speaking of I still need to beat bravely second)

Fire Emblem Fates: Conquest

Welp I just finished the game. Spoilers for the final 5 chapters:

Anyway, can someone tell me, without spoiling ANYTHING that happens in revelations, why Conquest is considered the worst in terms of story? I thought it was on par with Birthright aside from the ridiculous pacing at the very end. Overall they're both OK it's just they try to cover too much with such short expositions.

I've moved on to revelations already but I'll cover those thoughts in another post. Fog of war is back though, cool.

i started playing conquest

even by the standards of fire emblem games this plot is painfully dull, granted i'm only at chapter 8 but so far i haven't seen a single interesting character interaction. corrin is just one of the most boring wooden protagonists i've ever seen in a video game (and good GOD that dragon design is horrendous). robin was kind of a blank slate but this is a whole new level of bleh

at least the gameplay seems to have been updated. greater weapon variety and more difficult levels is a refreshing change

Man I have to say that FE: Conquest is extremely HARD! I have it on the highest difficulty and also on classic, so if my team dies, they don't come back! Im currently on the chapter where you have to find the imposter on the boat and they gradually take your money every turn :(
