new fire emblem fuck yeah.

This forum is specifically for discussing non-Mafia games (board, card, video, we're not picky). Playing such games should happen in the Mish Mash forum, of course.

Fire Emblem is probably my favorite series. I've only played Fire Emblem 4 to 8 though.
I would 100% recommend 4. It may be old, but the story is really epic.

I really need to check out the newer Fire Emblems soon.

It's always exciting learning someone else has played through Thracia 776. (Andrius mentioned playing it)
I'm starting my first playthrough of Path of Radiance soon. The game boy games and SNES games are some of the defining games in my childhood. But for some reason I never played PoR or RD until now. I might try the 3DS ones.

The best way to play these games are ironman runs. No restarts if characters die. The earlier games were actually designed to be played like that.
I think in an interview I read the producers started realizing people always restarted when a character died and begun to adjust the gameplay around fire emblem 6.

Hey! Good to see you again.
Also really you guys. I might have to post a let's play of Thracia so you guys can appreciate the game fully.
A lot of people I know say the manster section is brutal (and the rest of the game being good) but I honestly loved that section too.
I'm really looking forward to 9 and 10. I finally have time over Christmas break to play through them. I'll probably post my thoughts on it.
Genealogy is probably my favorite too. Gameplay wise it's kind of broken but the story makes up for it. I used to have a bunch of fan fics written for it.

My other favorite is Sacred Stones. I recognize all the flaws and understand why some people don't like it but I love that one. I appreciate the game more everytime I play it.

Honestly, one the main reasons I never got it for around literally 8 years was I could never find it.
I eventually caved and dolphined it.
But yeah, if you own a hard copy, it's a pretty rare thing you got and worth a lot now lol.

PoR is decent and smooth enough in the bit I checked. The music not really, but I usually don't have music playing since I'm listening to other things. (I gave the emulator to my sister and she said it was too laggy so it might be how strong of a computer you have too)
RD seemed kind of bad though.

They released Thracia on the SNES (one of the last games released on it) when the N64 was deep in its lifespan. They really struggled on the timing of games for the longest time.

We should just all play through the games starting from 1 to 14 or whatever number we're at. (skipping Shadow Dragon)

Post Post #99  (isolation #11)  » Tue Dec 27, 2016 2:17 am

OK. I feel like challenging myself. Coming soon to a mafia forum near you:
Fire Emblem 5 Thracia 766
Image
Fire Emblem 5 is probably one of the most obscure Fire Emblem games out there, and least played. And for good reason.
It was released in 1999 through a special Nintendo Special flash cartridge which was some weird system where you could get games put on the ram at a store. Usually it was used so you could get games cheaper and not need to get cartridges, but in Thracia's case it was only released through this system (until it eventually came out on cartridge next year). However, the fact that it was released on the SNES and through a ram cartridge system no one used in 1999, when the N64 had been in business for over 3 years (The Gamecube was released in Nov 2001) made it not a very popular game at release.
Spoiler: How does this even work
Image

It was the last game of the Shouzou Kaga era before he left Nintendo, and took place in the Jugdral universe (the one where FE 4 and 5 take place in). However, this game is actually a midquel of Fire Emblem 4 Genealogy of the Holy War. There is a time skip between Chapters 5 and 6 in Fire Emblem Genealogy where it takes place. (Near the end of the skip, and eventually joining up with events that take place in that game until chapter 7)
Spoiler: FE4, the game with very long chapters
Image

A side of effect of this makes the story in Fire Emblem 5 not very interesting on it's own, and even with the knowledge of the FE4 story, it's still only decent and just gives a different point of view of the story from one of the characters in FE4. A bunch of the villains seen are never defeated or even fought in FE5. They introduce a few new villains in 5 but they aren't that noteworthy.
Furthermore, there are no support conversations in this game making the character development and growth not really a thing which is one of the main points to a modern Fire Emblem game. In the limited time the characters are in the spotlight, they are usually very interesting however, but it just pains me to have no support conversations.
Spoiler: I literally don't remember this character's name
Image

Also, the game is broken. There are definitely signs of the game being rushed and not polished/fine tuned, and lots of annoying things make the game a lot more harder than it should be. It's not really a 'fair' difficulty which is why so many people are rage induced trying to play it.
Finally, the translation patch to English is unfinished and the menus are gibberish making the game harder and even more annoying.
Spoiler: What does any of this mean
Image

So to summarize, it's a broken, rushed game that's intensely hard (probably by accident) and doesn't really have characters or a story that is interesting or makes sense without playing Fire Emblem 4 and it has no good translation patch. Thus, it's quite easy to see why the game is not the most popular in the series.
So why am I going to play through it?
Because I hate myself
Because it's got some very interesting map designs, and there is probably no FE game that has such tactical and strategic emphasis. There are some really interesting maps and gameplay gimmicks. I really wish they'd update this game, fix the flaws, add support conversations, and this would be a fantastic game.

So I've never posted a playthrough before and I have no idea how this will work. I'll be doing ironman style which means if a character gets killed, they are dead for good and I am not allowed to restart. This makes it possible (and quite probable) I put myself in a situation I can't win. In which case, too bad for the playthrough and it will be finished early. I could see this ending on chapter 4. This is a very very bad idea but yolo.

Yeah. What they said. Turn based strategies with good stories and characters who if you lose them in battle they stay perma dead.
In terms of actual games from my perspective you have,

Fire Emblem 1,2,3 were released a long time ago and since they've been remade or will be remade there's no point to playing them anymore.

Fire Emblem 4 is pretty different from the others but has the best story by far. Pretty much a game of thrones story and if you don't play it you should read the manga based off the story which is also really good. This game basically conquered Japan and was their most successful game there. (Although it never got officially released in America so it's influence is less known there)

Fire Emblem 5 is hardest game in the series but has the best tactical and strategic elements in my opinion. Don't play this one until you've played the more classical ones and Fire Emblem 4 first. (Since the story of 5 is a midquel to 4 and has spoilers) This game has my favorite main character too.

Fire Emblem 6 is decent but 7 and 8 are superior in almost every way and 7 is a prequel. Probably only play this one if you really loved 7.

Fire emblem 7 is probably the best one to start with to get into the series. It's got a really long tutorial section, but characters, story, and gameplay are top notch and it's a solid entry point. Probably has the best characters out of all the ones I've played. This was the first one officially released to America.

Fire Emblem 8 is a fantastic game for its size and length. It's got really good pacing and villains. Considerably easier and shorter then others so if you're looking for a quick romp, do this one. Has some really solid and interesting characters too. It's one I didn't fully come to appreciate until I played it a couple times and noticed the genius behind some parts.

Fire Emblem 9 + 10. Only have had time to play the first chapters of 9 but I've heard these games are fantastic and after the first 6 chapters I have no doubts. Can't wait to graduate so I have time to play these.

Fire Emblem 11. Remake of 1. Honestly, not a great game. They didn't update much and it hasn't aged that well.

Fire Emblem 12. Remake of 3. Pretty solid and decent. It has possibly the best map designs and levels, and a pretty solid story.

Everything past this and the games kind of changed their target audience and there's a lot more emphasis on marrying characters and marrying off your self insert character which isn't really my style but they're really popular games so they're probably good games if you like that style.

They're also remaking fire emblem 2 which I'm excited about.

Haha, I respect Shadow Dragon in the sense that the original was legendary. But now?
The characters are undeveloped and not very interesting. The story is pretty basic. The only interesting story parts to me were needing to select a character to use as a decoy/sacrifice and Marth holding back tears and pretending to be happy while waving to the people because he just learned his sister was taken.
The maps were pretty generic and boring. Nothing really stood out and they were all sieze the throne chapters. The only interesting one was the gharnef fight. (Which admittedly was pretty cool)
The pacing is pretty off and the game just feels more like a slog at times.
I think they should have updated Shadow Dragon similar to how they updated 12. But at least it actually had a decent multiplayer mode so there's that.

Here's hoping that Eirika's army kept their flags when they realized how badly they lost so they can bring them over to Ephraim's army so he actually stands a chance. Also hoping most Chromrads join up with us now.

I burned most of my flags in the last hour against Chrom when he made a last minute surge.

My Lilina and Oboro are definitely my best two right now. I really liked Ray from his game and tried using him but his level ups sucked so I'm probably booting him.

Not surprising at all, also because Lucina is a super smash bros character so all the filthy casuals would pick her.
But we can't go down like this! Calling all scummers who browse this topic, get Fire Emblem Heroes! Join team Ephraim. I can't promise you victory or success, but I can promise you honour!

I just beat chapter 13 in path of radiance
Spoiler: thoughts
I like the story so far. I especially like the laguz, and every laguz character I've met so far. Ranulf is my favorite character and Lethe just tears everything apart.
I think this game has the most interesting setting or world it takes place in? I'm finding Begnion especially intriguing so far. Fire Emblem 4 may have gone more in depth on the politics of all the countries, but I feel like this one covers the actual cultures and identities better, making me actually imagine life in the countries more.
I'm enjoying Ike as a main character. I'm a little confused why Titania doesn't ever tell Ike anything about his past, but whatever.
I like a lot of the other characters as well (there's a lot being introduced now to keep track of) and the info talks between chapters add a lot.

Gameplaywise, it feels pretty much the same as other fire emblem games. This isn't a bad thing. The laguz units spiced things up though.

Haha. That thriller picture greatly amuses me even though I have no idea why it exists.
Just beat Ena where Rolf basically destroyed crit her right away with a laguz bow.
My units are insanely strong at this point.
I've given Mia the gamble skill, and a forged slim sword with insane crit and hit, and when gambling she still sometimes gets up to an 80% hit right (with an 80% crit rate).
Nephenee has wrath, ambush, and provoke, and I imagine if she ever takes enough damage to go below half, she'll just crit-wreck everything that attacks her before they can touch her.
I've given Jill stun, Oscar Sol, and Ike Aether. Marcia has the boots and can travel everywhere. Rolf has corrosion and insane stats.
My units are just destroying everything right now.
It's very satisfying.

I kind of am leaning going Ike with Lethe. Soren is great and all but Lethe is just way too cool.
Granted I'm putting Lethe with Jill as well and Soren is all alone without Ike. I'll see who gets there first.
I am using Kieran. He's already supported to A with Oscar. He's been given no skills or statboosters and he's still keeping up just fine.
I am unfortunately not using that sexy beast Makalov to even out the riders. His sister is fighting well enough for the both of them though. (Lol at them not even having a support)
Also, Shinon and gatrie have no right being in that rainbow! I can forgive Shinon but Gatrie knows better.

I got Bastion, and he seems vaguely familiar to someone's avatar I remember. Geoffrey looks like Ephraim from another game. Lucia seemed a little too eager to leave her brother to die.
Rocks were pretty annoying.
I like the story, but I find it pretty hilarious that Mist had an amulet that contained a dark god and that anyone else who touched it would turn into a deranged psycho killer, and Greil and Titania never thought it was a good idea to tell the kids that. "Oops, Ike accidentally grabbed Mist's amulet for her. RIP"
I have no idea who the black knight is yet. I'm going to guess it's no one on my party, but surely it's someone surprising. Maybe Kurthnaga? Somehow related to Sephiran though.
Lol at Nasir being everyone's spy.

I don't really have any critiques of the game. I was mainly just sitting back and enjoying it all without thinking about it too much. I'll probably examine, actively appreciate, and find flaws on my second playthrough. Although honestly, I don't really see any argument right now that it isn't the best one so far. It's basically just like any other fire emblem game, just the most polished one so far.
It definitely didn't feel like it was over though. You can tell they were planning for the sequel right away and I definitely need to get started on Radiant Dawn.
Spoiler: POR spoilers
Giffca was a fricken beast. Glad I picked him first. Tibarn is still way too big to be a bird. My top 5 units were in decreasing order Nephenee > Mia > Ike > Oscar > Boyd. (which honestly surprised me that Kieran wasn't on there, and that Nephenee or Mia weren't number one.)
I couldn't kill the black knight in time. I didn't have anything on mist, and Ike was only doing 3 damage. He could also only take 2 hits before dying. I DIDN'T RUN THOUGH! Nasir ended up coming in anyway.
I didn't really see the twist coming that Ashnard was riding Ena's lover in a feral form. Definitely made Ashnard even more terrifying in hindsight. Can't say Ashnard was the most interesting villain to me though, and I guess the only critique I can think of right now is the last chapter didn't seem quite as epic as other fire emblem games. But if I consider it's not really the end, and just the end of part 1 I'm okay with it.

Also, I'm confused about one thing in the story. At the end Ike, Mist, and Sephiran were all freaking out about not getting the song to someone who could use it to release the dark god from the medallion.
Why do they want the ability to summon a dark god to be available????

In re: dark god - It's better to be able to release the dark god than to get it strong enough to break out on its own.

The fight against the Burger King was the worst-designed part of the game IMO. Even if you cram all the resources into Ike and Mist, you still have to get lucky to actually win (preferably before the reinforcements show up) and if you screw up you have to play a long level again. At least it doesn't really matter.

The FE fandom thinks that Ashnard is the best villain in the series, actually. Rather than the usual omnicidal dragon thing, Ashnard was a psycho warlord who not only presented a radically meritocratic worldview in a plot that discusses the responsibilities of royalty and has a deep skepticism about nobility, but also wanted to release a dark god purely to further his belief that this worldview was the right thing (and, while he may not have survived the encounter with said god, he likely wouldn't have cared because that would have fit in his philosophy). The odd thing is that the game doesn't spell it out clearly unless Ashnard fights... Reyson.


But yes in terms of plot and setting it's probably the best game in the series.

Did you have a favorite BGM? (Don't forget to try a Trial Map before answering.)
Favorite character?

Spoiler:
Favorite BGM has to be Giffca. He's a freaking tank, and I get so giddy seeing a lion taking out everything. The most interesting character to me was either Ranulf, Shinon, or Naesala. Although in terms of just sitting back watching them destroy everything, it would have to be Nephenee. She was an absolute tank.

I read through some of the dialogue on Serene's Forest and support conversations I missed. I read all the battle dialogue with Ashnard. I can see how he got his ideas from his distaste of the Begnion royalty. I'll have to read his dialogue more closely next time. He was certainly a crazy guy.

These are all good choices for best character in every respect. Although there aren't many bad choices, to be fair.

Lol, thought that meant big gruff man or something and asking which of the three princes was the best.

Yeah, going to start radiant dawn soon

My sister's favorite character is Lute.
I enjoyed her but Forde and Innes are probably mine from that game.
Or L'rachel. Gah so many good characters.

He adds to Ephraim being a terrible prince. Ephraim is so oblivious to everything around him he didn't notice Lyon's insecurities, just like he doesn't notice Innes straight up despises him.

I'd play echoes but I can't afford a 3DS yet.
I might still buy the game just so Nintendo knows I support their decision.

I wonder if the remaining ones would be censored if they were remade.

True. But if they censor the incest tones, they'd have to substantially change the central plotline so I dunno. It's kind of why I am skeptical they'll even try to remake it.

Heroes gave an epic battle between Ephraim and Chrom which was so much fun. It hasn't quite reached that pinnacle again yet though.

Game is okay so far. At the moment I like Path of Radiance more probably because I am already attached to those characters. I assume that opinion will change when I get my old characters back.
Also, wow I die a lot.

I recognize Sothe. Looks like he hasn't had the funds to by a shirt since the last game?

I like Micaiah so far.

Wow, the skill jump between my units is quite high. I have people like Nailiah and Tauroneo who can just destroy things, and people like Meg and Leonardo who can't even do more than 3 damage.
Vika looks like she's always stoned.
I like this Tormod group.
Pelleas needs to grow a spine. Izuka being on my team right now is throwing me off.

Yeah! Beat part 1. Blitzing through this.
Spoiler:
Jarod had a very strange villain arc lol. Alder sacrificing himself for him and then Jarod just going and killing some more people. Not quite how I expected him to go.
It was hard. I tried to limit using op units like Nailah and Black Knight. Not sure how excited I should be that Pelleas and Izuka are on the throne now. Oh well, looks like I can move to Elincia now!

Yeah this is awesome. I'm so immersed I haven't been updating my thoughts because that's taking away from my actual play time.
