I mean, he's still insane (still believe Edelgard did Duscur, wants to do a Punishment of Duscur on the Empire etc) but he masks it better than bandit-hobo Dimitri, and the "kid" thing is probably just him pointing out that Rufus is alive in CF, so the Blaiddyd Crest Bloodline will continue with that family branch even if Dimitri died.

He's wrong, but he's not insane.

His death in the "good" ending of that chapter is actually a pretty nice way to go, even.

Curious when we're getting another new Fire Emblem. It's been as long since 3 Houses released as it was between Echoes and 3 Houses, but so far there's no information announced. Then again, Nintendo's been reducing the gap between announcement and release a lot lately.

covid probably screwed up their plans. there was meant to be a big fire emblem live event last year celebrating the 30th anniversary that would undoubtedly have had an announcement.

Hopefully the next release echoes Echoes' release where they announced in on January 2017 and it was out on April 20 of that same year.

Yeah. There haven't been any big new first party releases in general. From what I've heard, the games industry in general struggled to move to work from home and it was especially bad in the Japanese games industry.

also dimitri dodges some plot beats

imo best way to layer out revelations is dimitri->edelgard->claude->church

a few studios have managed to get stuff out, but a lot of it was stuff that was pretty far into production before covid hit. if you assume the flow of things is

2015: intsys starts work on echoes
2016: a small intsys team breaks off to work with kt on three houses
2017: echoes comes out, a small intsys team breaks off to start work on fe17. fe heroes comes out, and a small team breaks off to work on that game's live service. the rest of intsys that isnt working on anything moves to paper mario: origami king.
2019: three houses comes out, the few intsys staff from that split off to the fe17 or origami king teams
2020: origami king development wraps, the team from it moves to work on fe17 - gently caress you covid

its pretty easy to see why an fe17 might be 'long in coming.' of course, this is all just speculation, but it's a pretty reasonable guess based off when stuff came out and intsys not being *that* huge an operation, and nintendo probably cracking the whip harder when mario is involved. origami king would be the priority until it finished, and it finishing would coincide with the lockdowns starting.

I've been thinking about getting the DLC for Three Houses, and I have a quick question about what it says on the details page. It says that there's a second side story that was scheduled for release on 4/20/20--did that ever come out, or is it referring to Cindered Shadows?

Fire Emblem = incest!!! was an exaggerated meme and somewhat tiresome, but I think that battle was lost when IS published a game that included ďA letter from your dead mom saying itís ok to marry that character who until this point has been stated to be your full-blood sibling.Ē

Hopefully they learn from Three Houses that what the people really want is not eight romancable brothers and sisters but morally ambiguous villains and also gay romance.

I cannot believe that Fire Emblem fans are ultimately at fault for its greatest misstep, not aware their reckless action would rebound back on them as their benefactor took them seriously. I tried to think of a Fire Emblem joke/parallel, but my mind failed me here.

Prior to 3H, I want to say the most amount of characters with full names was...oddly enough, in the Tellius duology. Off the top of my head, there's Jill Fizzart (and by extension, her father Shiharam Fizzart), Sanaki Kirsch Altina, and Elincia Ridell Crimea. And even then their last names are either mentioned once during introductions and then never again, or you have to poke around in the artbook to find this info.

Itís also the only game where a lack of surname is acknowledged as like, a thing. (Sanaki snips at Ike that heís a surname-less commoner when he first gives her lip in PoR.)
