Right after finishing the chapter after Queen Mikoto takes a couple of magic sword bullets in your stead. Which yeah, as it's been mentioned, is a chapter before the route split.

I think most of us remember that.

I got the special edition mainly inspired by that first trailer.

Not a decision I'm 100 percent pleased with, in hindsight.

FE games have had pretty good soundtracks since the NES, so yes it is a well-known fact.

Hell, I've nicked a couple of riffs from Fire Emblem songs throughout the years. Especially from the Tsujiyoko years. She's amazing at writing catchy melodies that just straight up will grab you and won't let go. Of course she ain't the only awesome composer, but her composer work is probably one of my favorite things about the old games.

Ya thats the stuff, I love NES era music.

Btw I checked some Awakening lunatic run since I only bothered with hard. I saw some guy one shot Grima with his Robin. Rally buffing with everyone and I think he had the dlc skill limit breaker? Lol was kinda satisfying to watch a 99 hit.

To make up for the FExpo II closing for coronavirus, they're putting up all the performances (both musical and the stage dramas) from last year up to view for everyone for free for a week in May https://serenesforest.net/2020/04/1...s-online-merch/

that's a nice gesture. The new stage dramas will also have their scripts published, too

Maybe in her blood-frenzied state she lost it? I mean, I know Peg knights are commonly associated with Lances, but Princess Caeda has always been portrayed as either wielding or having a sword as a side-weapon.

They wanted Palla to have the power creep spear so Caeda got the super duper wing sword and to share a color with her future husband marth.

e: To fully explain the joke that image is based on the new anniversary Caeda


Her weapon deals effective damage to swords, lances, axes, bows and armors.

Not to ignore you or anything, but my burning question is where the HELL is my Clair alt? Like I love Alm and Celica but Clair (along with the farmboi himself) was lowkey my offensive GOAT in all of my playthroughs of SoV. The fact that she could still double most enemies that come at her even when I equip her with the Dracoshield from Act 3 onwards is insane. Like her and Alm were in the low 30's on speed before reaching Rigel castle. Absolute Speed Demons, the both of them.

Apropos of the G.O.A.T.'s, I found this cute fanart

It's fun to see them talk about all the worries they had with going into a 3D Game

quote:

I really dont understand fe4. It's a terrible game and I have no idea how people got through ch1's end into ch2's start. Or hiw they played without a guide to explain that in order to make lex useful he needs to ditch everyone and ride halfway across the map to some random tile with no hint or suggestion whatsoever.

And yet I'm still having fun in spite of the games best efforts?

Tbf even without the Brave Axe Lex still gouges massive holes in enemies. Like yeah the Brave Axe makes him one the best units in Gen 1 but even without it he has good based and growths in important stats, and Paragon means he can soften up entire enemy squads while getting actual experience for it.

Also yeah the end stretch of Chapter 1 is a slow slog but letís not pretend poo poo like Arcadia on your first Binding Blade playthrough was any better. God, I hate Arcadia.

DANTE IS NOT


The end of FE4 chapter 1 is probably the worst part of the game (maybe tied with the desert in chapter 5 for similar reasons). If you're going in blind but experienced with the rest of the series then yeah FE4 is a major system shock, it takes a hot minute to get used to all the weird unique aspects to it, but once you do I genuinely think it's one of the funnest in the series. My first playthrough I used a guide for certain specific things (planning for kids, brave axe, where special item villages were) but otherwise totally winged it, which I found to be a good balance. I did a replay of Gen 1 recently and tried to be as efficient as possible with money and EXP (including promoting Arden) and it was a very different but also very enjoyable experience. In general I just think the game is weird and different and cool, and there's a lot about it I think would be awesome to have come back in the series (aside from kids because that ship has sailed imo).

It's got intensely bad pacing in some parts but the good parts are just really satisfying to me. Also the pairing and children system is way more fun than in Awakening or Fates because of the way skill inheritance works.

The turd knight who joins you for the mission and rushes forward triggering all enemies at once. On maddening the best (and only viable I've found) solution is to set up a chokepoint where the chest is and letting the turd knight march on and suicide himself. It's silly.

I dunno, I kinda like it. It's nice how the game uses gameplay to reinforce the narrative theme of Gilbert being a useless piece of poo poo who makes life harder on everyone else around him all while refusing to look at the bigger picture.
