this game is aggressively average
Probably. I'm still in ch.5 and it's alright. Still thinking if I should pick up the dlc for tiki and Camila
Gameplay is good which is all that matters
Story has always sucked in FE
Only 3H babbies don't like it
>Gameplay is good which is all that matters
It's alright. About on par with the GBA era. It's utterly forgettable.
>everything about the game is shit except for the gameplay
>gameplay is average at best.
Keep coping. 3H won.
doesn't your game literally have a chud in the main cast
that's just the inverse of 3H, where the gameplay is shit and the story is average at best.
You'd need to be hard-pressed to say FE2, 3, 4, 6, 7, 8 and 9 have bad stories.
>Gameplay is good which is all that matters
I see this a lot, and I think it’s a misguided opinion.
The vast majority of people do not play Fire Emblem for “pure” gameplay. If that’s all the audience cared about, they’d just play chess. FE’s standout appeal has always been its characters. Fans become genuinely invested in using/preserving their favorite units because of the aesthetics/writing (which became more developed as the series grew into maturity). The character/relationship writing has synergy with the strategy gameplay, but make no mistake— it is an essential component. Without it, players wouldn’t care about losing units and would sacrifice pieces in service of optimal strategy.
While all the more recent entries (including Engage, by the way) have definitely leaned further into fan service territory, the core appeal is the characters themselves. The quality of the writing (supports, story, etc.) makes a huge impact on the overall experience.
I’m not defending past entries as having perfect writing. But if Engage represents a step down from Three Houses in this regard, it is a legitimate disappointment.
Honestly I disagree with this. If given the option I ALWAYS skip the cutscenes in FE6 and FE7. I honest to god have no idea what happens in both of those games, but I've gone back to them many many times because FE at it's most simple (Linear, without the option to go to grind maps) is a fun time.
Autism is not the standard unfortunately
they're hard coping. If gameplay was literally all that mattered they would be off jerking off Jagged Alliance 2 and Xcom in threads, not the anime game.
retards its not the characters themselves its the characters unique skills. adding skill inheritance is another layer to what FE fans enjoy about fire emblem. previously inheritance was locked behind the eugenics and different classes where now it is just jerking off with the right cock ring for a map or two before getting the skill you want.
Xcom would be great if they had more skills and skill inheritance shit in them. Also fuck the RNG in all Xcom games. I want to play Xcom now.
My copy hasn't arrived yet. Story-wise all I want is that it's either great or bad enough that I can shitpost about it. Are either of these the case?
It's generic. You've seen practically the same thing done by FE1-3 and the remakes, FE7, FE8, FEA and Revelations.
very generic story, very fun and ENGAGING gameplay
>or bad enough that I can shitpost about it.
You can't even do that because it's the bland kind of bad
Oh epic. At least this means I can use whoever's good without autistically thinking about story appropriateness.
>Gameplay is good
It's mediocre and way too easy.
I love my pirate wife Brigid!
Yes, it's a modern Fire Emblem.
So I assume story is dogshit and is essentially just fluff?
So worth $60 then
So good for FE standards
So worth buying this instead of waiting for octopath travelbored 2?
Alear, go play with your hebes, mommy needs to "engage" with Sigurd in her chambers
Damn, I just became Sigurd today
>Give moron to the protector dude
>Not even lvl 10 and almost has 20 defense, can move far and hit hard
If I wasn't so retarded to strategy this dude would be soloing everything in my maddening run. But I always end up using the time crystal because my brains shuts off and doesn't calculate everyone around me and always make mistakes and realize them after I do them. But this dude saved me so much
The game frontloads best rings for a reason anon
>Can't talk about vidya on Ganker
chuds would rather have Ganker be /b/-lite where they can lure zoomies into their groomer discords and spam their fetish threads
Lumera's death scene is the funniest shit
So overdramatic for a character we met 20 minutes ago
That cutscene was so fucking long my switch started to time out.
>mfw TV dims after 5 mins of divine dragon mommy dying
Talk about drawn out.
I thought they were going to make her the villain she was so painfully nice.
It’s a Mikoto reference, you wouldn’t get it
I love the facial expressions
has anyone figured out what the differences between the two language options
>English (North America)
are? I feel like the europe option might be uncensored
shit like armor or honor are still armor and honor
It's literally just spelling
Does donating to countries only affect skirmish rewards, or does it also affect stuff you find after actual chapters? If it's the former it's pointless to me as I'm not doing any skirmishes.
Nobody knows I guess. I'm just going to assume it's worthless then.
I bought Triangle Strategy instead. Fuck this vtuber shit.
How does it run in Switch? I want a PS5 version but that team is weird as fuck and probably won't port it.
Just get the PC version.
Runs fine. I guess there might be late game spells with big effects that might slow down but I doubt it. I don't remember issues in Octopath Traveler.
>passes on a game with decent gameplay and a bad story
>to get a decent VN with bad gameplay
Refund it and buy TO
enjoy, it's really great
as someone who doesn't give a shit about stories usually I was hooked on that one for some reason, probably because the setting was for the most part very realistic and just well written
you should still try out Engage at some point
runs pretty good on Switch, was optimized for it due to its time exclusivity
What does resting do?
Is there any downside to it?
Honestly it's as average as FE6 and I fucking love going back to that game so Engage is passable for me. Even the most average FE games are fun for me, but this is coming from someone who pirated Engage and didn't pay full price for it.
you can get married right? I feel like the main character is supposed to be the female but i want to use the romance mechanics
You can only get married in the Japanese version
In the English version you can only be "partners"
S-Supports are not gender locked, but NoA's translation makes most of the female options platonic no matter what gender you choose
you have to be kidding me
may as well play female aelar then
Proof? Asking legitimately.
I don't have anything on me, but the text for all the supports has leaked. Basically, the game ends with you giving a magic ring to a special person, which isn't explicitly a marriage proposal but has strong romantic undertones. Most of the Japanese responses treat it like a proposal. NoA chose to translate many of them as platonic, taking about how the characters are now "allies" or "friends" rather than lovers or partners, which would be more direct translations.
It seems like NoA got squeamish at the thought that some of these romances involve minors. None of the characters have canonical ages, but there are inaccessible files in the game that list ages for each of them—the ones that got changed almost all correspond to girls who are supposed to be 16 or 17. Boys mostly got away free because they're a couple years older than the girls on average.
It's all a little silly, though, because the ages clearly aren't supposed to be taken literally (the old lady character is 35, the greybeard old man is 45), and Alear him/herself is listed as 17
>I don't have anything on me, but
You could have stopped there, frankly.
Well fuck me for trying to help, I guess. Google it you fucking nonce
It's real retard
So how long til people on YouTube start reporting the localization changes?
It'd be a better game if Felicia was in it
>Trying to look for Romance supports
>Finally find a video with all of the girl characters
You have like 4 actual romancies, the rest are friendzones.
Story is dogshit so this makes sense
>Main Scenario for Birthright and Conquest
>Tweets that she's angry Shin Kibayashi got top billing as "original story by", as if she's proud of Birthright and Conquest
bros have we shat on Kibayashi for nothing all this time?
We've known for a long time that he only gave a general outline and IS did the rest.
Sure; I just ran with the 'his outlines were 600 pages of shit and IS did what they could with them' narrative; but if the trend is continuing independent of him then it must have been the other way around
No wonder 3H turned out decent
Wonder if she gets any dick
And no this is not me simping, I’m just curious.
Isn't Awakening considered amazing?
Think it was a fluke. Two duds in a row.
Its just waifubait, and it served its purpose of saving fire emblem
awakening was a hugeeeeeeeee mistake
>the series not dying was a huge mistake
I actually agree after this abortion of a game. 3H was the closest this shit series came to standing as something on its own.
>Me trying to convince myself Engage is Kaga tier and not just shitty Conquest
The Struggle man…
how does a game that came out 32 years after Langrisser manage to be worse than it in every single aspect, from story, to map design, to character design?
What in the FUCK
I am not the biggest FE fan, and I've played only a handful of the GBA games, Awakening, 3H, Fates, and now this and unless the ones I didn't play are literal Yokai Watch for children tier, I don't understand how a game that diverges so wildly from the tone and settings of the other games is getting a free pass.
Brotherman already dropped the game after one stream. He liked the combat, but hated dialogue, characters and story. Said he wished something similar as Three Houses.
Hes honestly great. Just subscribed
3 Houses chapter intros with Jeralt narrating were kino.
I don't blame him. I wanted an improvement on 3H; not a regression across the board.
It's a pretty solid improvement in moment to moment gameplay at least.
"Across the board" it improved on 3 Houses in so many ways.
>"Across the board" it improved on 3 Houses in so many ways.
you haven't even played the game.
Yes, I have you retard. Not only is there more to do in Somniel than Monastery but it's not centered around it like how it was in 3 Houses. The visuals and animations are better too. Mechanics and gameplay are way better as well.
>Not only is there more to do in Somniel than Monastery
>pushups, situps, and crunches that take 100 times longer than the bathhouse that gave the stats before
>picking bread up off of the floor
>sleeping so teammates can creep on you
>polishing another man's stones
you LITERALLY have not played this game.
There's more than that. Way to show you haven't gotten far in the game or even looked at the entire experience at all. More and more get added to the Somniel over the course of the game. You fuck off, retarded goon.
Post your game, gay. What "features"?
Fishing, Fortune Telling, Wyvern Ride, Tempest Trials, and dedicated Online map making/co-op are examples. It was literally posted all over the trailers, there's objectively more to do than Monastery while being completely optional unlike 3 Houses. Which is the best way to do a base like this.
>while being completely optional unlike 3 Houses
none of that shit is optional unless you're on normal, retard
if that's optional, then so was 3H because you don't NEED bonds. You don't NEED to train because it can be automated. You instead get recharges on Relic weapons and more fights per month in return, making you richer and stronger.
So actually, 3H rewarded you more for skipping the social shit than this game goes
Nope, it literally is you fucking retard. Already saw numerous hard players only use the shop and forging. And get by just fine. There's so much ignorable shit in this game to the point you can skip the post battle exploration and be handed the bond fragments you missed.
And you can set lessons on auto in 3H and rest and battle every week.
What's your point, RETARD?
Professor Level and Calendar objectively makes you stay at the base longer than the Somniel, RETARD. Even if you auto you're still stuck going through a fuck ton of menus of "this character learned this!" and progressing along the calendar. Since if you haven't noticed, the main story missions only happen at the end of the month.
Even the developers admitted that shit was a clog. Cope.
>Professor Level and Calendar
Just rest and battle. You keep trying to talk in circles you ESL gay, but what do you miss out on if you don't socialize?
This game is just as much of a boring slog. Better pet that dog with the 30 second animation and do your squats gay
"jUST REST AND BATTLE" still stuck going through the calendar moron. Because they didn't think that through, keep making excuses though you 3 Houses obsessed chud.
ESL, your game is shit. It's literally the worst FE ever made.
Nothing you do can change it. You can seethe. You can cope.
Nobody will mention this game 2 months from now.
have a nice day.
No. Deal with it and seethe, Pablo. What are you going to do about it?
>"S-See!? A reddit comment said they didn't like it! Nobody will like it!"
You're only digging your grave and credibility along with it, redditor. Engage is getting an official manga adaptation before 3 Houses. Have fun killing yourself when you keep seeing Engage everywhere.
So nothing? You're going to do nothing about it. Thought so. Choke on your impotence you moron
>m...muh credibility on 4chinz
Don't need to, you already proved nothing you say has value. Engage is already getting a manga adaptation before lots of other Fire Emblems. Cope, seethe, and dilate.
Go have a nice day.
You fuck over your game not doing those things.
3 houses is bloated to fuck, full insanity that a strategy game made me spend longer doing social bullshit than playing the actual gameplay.
Post your insanity run in Engage, moron. You're not skipping the 'social' shit in this game either unless you're on normal and I want to see you justify slow as fuck squats minigame in between every battle.
Game just released today shit lips,
I'm not comparing engage to 3H, but critiquing 3H's insane slog, which you would understand if you had reading comprehension above a 4th grade level.
thought so you little fucking bitch
enjoy normal mode
You have to interact with the monastery because otherwise you’re limited on so much shit.
>professor level ranks much more slowly, resulting in less tutoring sessions, good during part 1, less battle points, much more limited shop inventories, and even being locked from master rank classes for a while
>because you can only use seminars to train byleth’s ranks, reclassing byleth to anything that doesn’t use swords is a pain in the ass
>can’t build support ranks with out of house students which means their high weapon rank requirements won’t be lowered, so you won’t be able to recruit them, this is especially noticeable for students that require heavy armor, riding or flying
>no quests which means no access to the secret shop
>can’t purchase forging materials since that shop is inaccessible from the menu
Don't bother trying to use simple logic with 3 Houses fanboys. They can't comprehend it. Skipping it kneecaps your student's class progression so fucking hard that the game becomes even more of a slog.
If the developers were willing to admit the calendar was a slog then clearly they did something wrong.

The problem with the Monastery is you still go there in Part 2. That should not have happened. It's great in Part 1. It becomes a slog in Part 2. Part 2 should be "normal" Fire Emlblem where your team travels the world (not goes far into enemy land then goes all the way home to do nothing for a month lol)
Part 2 should ditch the monastery and just have a small camp for the basics. Tutoring, flowers, cooking,etc all in a close knit area.
>Part 2 should ditch the monastery and just have a small camp for the basics.
I swear I remember part of Edelgard's story doing just that.
Play a real tactics game and you'll see that you don't have to have Babby Story Hour to have good gameplay. Jagged Alliance 2 is pretty cheap these days, or maybe try Xcom, or Devil Survivor.
I mean, you only care about PURE gameplay, right?
Having played all of those, including having a boxed copy of Xcom before it went swimming in 2005, I, for one, also enjoy FE's gameplay.
Edelgards route uses a base for like one mission right before the time skip. You go back the monastery.
In the last chapter before part 2 begins, Edelgard takes you and everyone in the black eagles to a war camp in preparation to invade the monastery. That’s the only time it happens. Part 2 is back to the monastery since you conquered it before the timeskip, and everyone in Fodlan can’t fight a war without Byleth.
Are the improvements in the thread with us right now?
What is happening here?
I can't watch him at all, don't hate him but the lisp thing completely tilts me
It's fucking over.
I feel the exact same way. If I want 'just' gameplay I'll go play a different strategy game. I would rather just go for another round in TO: Reborn.
What a gay, do Americans really?
He's not wrong.
Hiro, if you are reading this,make /incel/ a thing already
snoychuds seething hard itt
which ones are the snoychuds supposed to be? I legitimately don't know
why do people pretend that 3 houses was good
Cause they are not hippy wannabes that try too hard
It was the best this shitty series has ever been.
sunk cost fallacy
Why cant we have BOTH. A good story and good combat why do they feel the need to only have one or the other.
because it's cope over this game having probably the worst presentation and story in the series.
Yes, worse than Fates.
At least Fates was so bad it was memorable and it gets memes to this day.
This is just aggressively bland, and much like the TV show your toddler was watching with you a few hours ago, it won't stick with you when it's over.
Fates was fun and badly written. This is bland, boring AND badly written. All the characters are also incredibly unmemorable and disappointing.
That's a lie. Engage is a better story than Fates and you're delusional if you unironically claim that shit. Clearly you memory holed the numerous times Fates tore itself apart as a story. With an incompetent protagonist to boot.
>Engage is a better story than Fates
The biggest sin a story can make is to be boring, bland and uninteresting. Engage is much worse on that regard. Fates also at least has an interesting cast to carry the story.
Except Fates IS uninteresting, bland, and boring. It had a stellar concept that devolved into Corrin doing dumb shit and whining the whole time. Nothing about the story is carried. The story is so trash that even the characters were made worse from it. Xander goes from a chad in his supports to an insufferable do-nothing moron in the story.
Anon you misunderstand what these nuFE fans are saying. What they actually mean is Fates is the type of factory line weeb shit they enjoy. The fact we are sitting here even arguing about stories when this entire franchise was resurrected on a story-less GBA game is fucking insane and you should not stoop to their level.
>The fact we are sitting here even arguing about stories when this entire franchise was resurrected on a story-less GBA game is fucking insane
>Don't argue about story! It's supposed to be shit!
The actual state
>It had a stellar concept
Engage didn't even have that. You can say the story of Fates devolved to dogshit, but engage was dogshit all the way. The characters in engage were never interesting either. It's bland and boring from beginning to end.
Objectively wrong. Nothing about Engage gets into dogshit writing that tears apart its own plot the way Fates has. The protagonist literally acts an idiot consistently only to be praised as a competent amazing god anyway.
It's more boring, it's worse. It's as simple as that anon, objectively better writing doesn't always make for a better story. Especially when the objectively better one is only better because the story is so bland and boring it's almost impossible to fuck up writing it on a technical level.
It's a better story. Engage isn't a dumpsterfire that Fates is, it's basic but far from dogshit. The cheesiness is already making numerous be positive on the story since it didn't try to take itself seriously that Fates does. Fates is boring and nonsensical. Engage has very consistent logic and approaches across the board.
>since it didn't try to take itself seriously that Fates does
>beginning of the game has the longest fucking death scene where a guy with no memories is crying over someone he met 10 seconds ago
I am now convinced most of the defenders of this dogshit have not yet played it.
>Actively trying to pretend the game isn't over the top as fuck.
>Literally has someone leap 10 fit in the air so they can kneel in an exaggerated way
>Characters literally fucking scream and talk about "Engaging with Emblems" all the time
>Lumera's death is practically an over the top parody since she still talks about engaging with emblems on their death bed.
This shit is over the top in cheese and it's hilarious. Fucking retard.
>This shit is over the top in cheese and it's hilarious.
the only thing over the top here is your attempt to cope, holy shit lmao
>IT'S BAD ON PURPOSE OKAY
>IT'S BAD ON PURPOSE OKAY
but FE stories ARE bad.
The only one coping here is you. You can't handle anyone liking it so you pretend anyone who likes it didn't play the game, retarded secondary.
Fates had literal one not characters. I would find it hard to believe the ones in Engage are worse. Hell, 4 Houses had so fucking many but most were well-written and had depth. Only like, some Churchfags a la Rhea, Catherine and Cyril
Three Houses 2 or whatever the next Koei Tecmo game is will be kino if they keep it to just one narrative and focus more on the gameplay. They had a good batch of writers that were just stretched thin.
>Next game is a Genealogy remake
Really looking forward to the Three Houses follow up in 2030
Does Three Hopes have a good story? Maybe I should buy that instead. I only did the Edelgard route btw
it doesn't necessarily have an amazing core story, but there are really amazing character interactions. It's also cool having the player character be set-up to be against Byleth right from the start.
sweetie, check metacritic, your game is mid AF
kek thank fuck this year re-ignited Matsuno kino return because the "fans" are gobbling this shit up elsewhere on the net. Saying it's the best FE yet.
Needless to say, Fates story sucks, but which is a better story, awakening or Engage?
Awakening is way better than this. What do you mean? It literally saved Fire Emblem
I liked the time travel mechanic in Awakening enough that it worked better for me. Engage has quite a bit of melodrama that falls totally flat, and I don't care enough about the plot of old FE games to give a single shit about the emblem stuff
I found the fan service in Awakening to be acceptable whereas here it comes off as gratuitous
Awakening's story isn't the most ambitious or serious but it's enjoyable enough and at least has some semblance of a serious plot. It's weird that it's put under such heavy scrutiny where there are way more paint-by-number stories across the entire franchise before it. Hell, Chrom never has to go on the run from his homeland or liberate it and is almost always on the offensive, and the evil dragon doesn't even really become something to focus on until the last act.
Meanwhile Engage is just Revelations but coherent.
Awakening had good atmosphere. Sort of a mystery to it. Great art and character outfits as well. It had a lot going for it that makes it better. Otherwise the story is decent ish.
Meanwhile this game has all of those points against it. Characters are an incoherent visual mess it looks like theyre all competing to be the main character.
Gameplay is fun and that's all that matters. Skip the story on replays in all FE anyways.
>all this shitposting
>Play the game for like 7 hours
The game gave me a few chuckles and the story isn't terrible. Is basic and straight to the point and the support conversations have been pretty decent. Monk girl is borderline insane though. As in, obessed to the max. Good lord. I'm "marrying" pic related tho
Cute. Shame about that dub voice, though
God, don't remind me. Im still using the eng dub because honestly there's a few solid ones but she a complete miss.
Have fun with your best friend
>Not analy fucking your tomboy best friend
Can i change the voices mid game I cant stand the dub this time, Deku and a retard shouting in my ear. The mom death scene was especially unbearable.
I'm pretty sure you can from the main menu. You could in Three Houses
Yeah, the thread is honestly full schizo
Like, it's not even arguments for one thing or another, it's just nonsensical babble
Any game that gets posted on Ganker will get schizo doomposters who just try and bait people, this place is a fucking cesspool compared to a few years ago.
You're supposed to give monk girl the manure to keep her in check
>a FE for everyone
>game with story for babbies, bright colors, rewind, and restart battles with keeping all EXP
>and restart battles with keeping all EXP
what the fuck lmao
Yeah, if you want to farm or lose a dude and don't want to woof poof rewind time, just get Alear killed
you can restart keeping all EXP
>they hated him because he told them the truth.
Just picked it up. Out of town and went to a GameStop in bumfuck nowhere and it was great. Didn't ask me if I wanted a warranty or pestered me to preorder more games. Simple n and out as it should be.
You are supposed to review the game, not your customer experience with GameStop.
What's the deal with the enemy attack indicator lines in this game? They don't seem to... indicate who enemies are going to attack anymore? It only seems to indicate if an enemy CAN attack a unit. For example, I have multiple units within range of an enemy unit, and it only shows the indicator lines when I have a unit selected, and it seems to just show the lines pointing to whoever I have selected.
Yeah they took away the enemy indicator for the most part. Which kind of sucks? I always saw it as more of a QOL thing than making the game meaningfully easier. And now it's much more complicated to calculate whether or not I can survive a hit
Goddammit, that's so fucking gay. It was one of the few things I really liked about 3houses.
>see enemy flyer
>oh must be a wyvern i'll send the mage
Since fucking when are there early game enemy pegasus knights in this franchise?
how do you look at a unit and not immediately recognize if it's a bright white pegasus or some dark gray dragon
Still super early on, I just hate how you're travelling in a group not one screen earlier then you're completely alone in the cutscene
also mom died way too early
It's not as if Jeralt was some fantastic character, but at least he was allowed to BE a character before they expected me to give a shit. Even Alear doesn't have a reason to care.
It is not like 3 houses and i love it
So this is Mercy right?
No It's The Song
Im now realizing that 3H is one of those one time things like majoras mask and now im sad
Will be very sad if they abandon 3H just like how zelda abandoned oot and mm
Three Houses wasn't perfect, but it really made me see the potential for something more ambitious in this franchise, and it sucks to see them reverting back to the same old thing + nostalgia bait for games no one ever played
>see the potential for something more ambitious in this franchise
Give it up IntSys. You don't have the talent to be more ambitious. Fates and 3H were both ruined because you bit off more than you could chew by trying to give them so many routes. You don't have the talent to do 2 routes properly, let alone more than that. "Ambition" is a poison to mediocre writers like you, you need to build your foundations better before you try that again.
Of all the things to criticize about 3H you think the routes ruined it? You an actual retard, it did a great job on 3/4 of the routes and that’s one of the only things everyone agrees it did well.
I'm a pretty big Three Houses defender, but Edelgard's route is too short and shoves the real conflict with the antagonists into the epilogue, Claude's is a side-story lore dump only tangentially related to the others, and Rhea's is just recycled content from those two
>but it really made me see the potential for something more ambitious in this franchise
You aren't wrong about them being more "ambitious", but they clearly stopped giving a fuck about making something remotely strategic with 3H. Basic bitch, bland maps, with basic bitch, bland map objectives. It's sad they realized mentally ill teenage girls who love shipping make up 80 percent of their fanbase now.
I just don't really buy the notion that it's a real trade-off. You can have strong TRPG gameplay AND some fun social sim stuff AND characters with real personalities and motivations. Three Houses didn't nail it, but they shouldn't have given up.
>snoychuds gets mad for being called out.
Game arrived today and i'm still debating whether to play on emulator or switch. Don't really know what online features are available in game that would sway someone.
Emulate it, but not in 60 FPS+ as it makes menus more difficult due to going way too fast and the minigames become harder than they have any right to be.
oh so THAT's why my character was going super sanic during walkaround moments
Yeah. I suspect that someone may implement a fix into it well after I'm done with the game.
>game shoves new characters up your ass every chapter who are miles above your old dudes
>1 or 2 of your old dudes inevitably got stat fucked and gets benched
I feel like there is zero choice in who to bring. You use the people the game gives you and who didn't get assfucked by RNG. I should've started on Maddening and dropped to Hard to keep fixed levels.
Welcome to older Fire Emblems. Be glad you didn't get three fucking levels of autistic healer girl only getting +1STR in a row and only +STR. Credit given, she's a decent striker for me but holy hell is she fragile otherwise.
your 3 HRT's is the persona 5 of fire emblem so eat shit
>garbled mad ESL noises
How do I use the pool?
still haven't seen good porn of her.
Game just came out I guess, but the designs have been floating around for months and there's like 300 total images on Gelbooru. Like literally one page on Pixiv
Are there any missable/recruitable characters or is every character just given to you?
the latter. You might miss the recruits from the side missions if you don't do them, but I don't count that.
I miss having recruitable enemies like in the older games...
>Are there any missable/recruitable characters
There are, actually. Other anon lied to you.
No, retard. There's Jade in Chapter 9 that you would have to be retarded to miss
then there is Jean and Anna, both in side missions
if you're going to be retarded and say "well hurr durr you can not talk to them and then you missed them so I'm right XD XD" then fuck off
You literally have not gotten far enough in the game to know what I'm talking about then
It's fun. Fates and 3H fans can go suck a dick.
Game's shit and Fates and 3H are leagues better.
Yeah if you don't like fire emblem.
I think this may be a Miyamoto-influenced line of thought, but why do so many Nintendofags excuse bad stories if gameplay is decent? Especially in JRPGs. It's like they believe these things are mutually exclusive when they aren't.
Did anyone bother changing Alear's name? the 8 letter limit is pretty restrictive to begin with and i don't really see the point since they aren't a customizable avatar. It's weird they even give you the option.
I named mine Chuck
I did, I like customizing my MC's name
Its sad 3losers won't accept that garden gnometendo wants fire emblem attract newfags with engage
funny considering 3HRT is the most easy casual game in the series
If they wanted to attract newfags, they would skip the nostalgia for 30 year old games no one played and double down on the waifu shit that was the only thing that ever made this franchise broadly popular
>trailer explicitly says it's for new people
>anon goes into denial mode
ever consider the nostalgia grab shit is for oldfags to not be alienated with Fire Emblem 4 Kidz Edition, and that's why it barely ever matters? It's not explained in story other than "oh yeah we summoned some heroes" and the bonds with them are lazy one liners
I don't doubt that they want to attract new players. Every franchise in the world wants that. I'm saying they chose a bad strategy to accomplish this.
well you will understand how tonedeaf and retarded are corpos
>hey remember all these characters from these games you've never heard or don't give a shit about?
>now it's all in one game
Why the fuck would Nintendo use a nostalgiabait strategy for attracting new audiences? It's better to do shit like Three Houses where you create a new setting with absolutely no prior knowledge of the series needed.
The idea is they can learn about all FE via Engage but they drop the ball in that the Emblems do not have much, if any, character.
It's an anniversary game while streamlining itself for new players. It clearly worked when numerous players are interested in some of the old characters.
>shit character designs
>shit non-breakable weapons
>shit rings mechanic
>shit rewind mechanic
Attention Everyone: Zoomers think they are oldfags because they started with fates. This should clear up any miscommunication.
Fates was 20 years ago
I don't want to be a series 'oldfag' if this game is considered a good Fire Emblem
literal trash series lmao
Zoomers started with the GBA.
i don't think you know what zoomers are
Sixth gen platforms are absolutely Gen-Z core shit. You can't just divorce the GBA from the Gamecube just because it's inconvenient.
That's like someone born the early 90s making claim to the NES. I can absolutely divorce a tactics game that came out when the earliest gen Z were fucking 7 years old from them playing refurbished or used older brother gamecubes. Hell even Gen Z doesn't own the GBA. Go look at any shitty starter pack image.
So which girls have the censored friendship end?
>mfw I can dress e-boi Anna in slutty midriff exposed clothes but can't marry her
Only four girls or something close to that are romanceable for real
Can female hero marry the shotas?
No, he becomes your personal physician
>Alear is 17
>Can't date characters the same age or a year younger than you
Any girl under 18 plus lapis iirc
so like 4 girls.
gameplay seems good but with some broken stuff.
characters and story.. pretty bad so far
censored too ,huh
sadly not surprised. wonder if anyone will translate the jp version to see all the changes
>no you don't understand you HAVE to manually train and do bonds because you just do, okay?
>no you don't understand you can just SKIP all the gacha ring shit, training that is a ton of EXP, stat boosts per map, and other stuff because you just can, okay?
I read in previous thread you need online to level up bond rings or some shit. Is that true?
I know those old characters and yet the only thing I feel is disdain and indifference
Honestly, I knew this game was gonna be a trash fire the moment I saw the Colgate hair.
wow, you must be really observant.
This has nothing to do with being observant you brainlet
>I observed a thing so I know it's bad
God you are stupid, please don't reply anymore
Game is aggressively fun.
How weeby is this game? The past few fire emblems have been barely tolerable in their weebiness but the trailers make this one seem even worse. I'm willing to skip cutscenes if the gameplay is actually good, that's what I do when I play fates and it significantly improves the game
I'm a weeb and I don't care for the narrative much.
It's not 'haha I love weeb shit' fun, it's more like watching one of those animes for kids on Saturday morning, like Yokai Watch or something.
I'm a weeb and I'd say this game is like a pretty bad forgettable seasonal anime when it comes to anything involving characters, writing and story. It would be an easy episode 2 drop.
is it as good as conquest?
Your face is aggressively average
>Raphael gets a nod, not Lorenz
It is so fucking surreal to see Ganker quote casuals on how there isn't enough story for a tactics game to hook them. Just admit you don't like tactics games and move the fuck on.
If you liked tactics game you wouldn't be championing Fire Emblem
Sir, the AO is on again in 3 hours. Can you please not pollute this board until then?
I have a JA2 CD Rom junior. You need to back down before you are forced to pretend you were trolling the whole time. According to your logic no Asseto Corsa fans played Cruisin USA.
>You need to back down before you are forced to pretend you were trolling the whole time
WHOA watch out, badass coming through, holy shit he's so tough
If you played those games then you wouldn't be saying stupid shit like "hurf durf well story and characters for 8 year olds are fine because gameplay good" because you'd know you don't need to choose in this genre and not having both is a FAILURE of the devs.
>If you played those games
And if you enjoyed games you could understand someone beating Super Meat Boy and the new kirby game. It's not fucking rocket science.
I love Devil Survivor 1 and 2 but it's super easy to break them without even trying and there's barely any strategy to them
so like Fire Emblem where you let mooks break themselves on the Juggernaut except you usually don't even have to try to break it?
xcom's units are fungible and the game is much more open-ended, they're not comparable
>xcom's units are fungible
UH OH is someone admitting to not playing on 'classic' in Fire Emblem?
>bro doesn't know what fungible means
No, I am starting to think YOU don't lmao
look kid, this is the part where you start rationalizing how you were just farming (you)s pretending to be stupid but I am writing this so sub consciously you feel shame in knowing that everyone can tell you were mistakenly stupid. have a nice day.
>(of a product or commodity) replaceable by another identical item; mutually interchangeable
this applies to Fire Emblem's units
and X-com's units.
They are both balanced around perma death and replacing people as they die, which is why you are given so many units.
Is this where you cope for a third time and try to play semantics and say "heh well you can't replace Juan Swordman with the same Juan Swordman but with a yellow shirt so I win" ?
This was already refuted 3 times before you posted this lmao
>this applies to Fire Emblem's units
So you don't play Fire Emblem either? This is the part where you claim to be "merely pretending".
No two Fire Emblem units are ever identical you dumb moron, that's the point
identical in specification RETARD
They don't literally have to be the same exact thing. I know you heard the word when NFTs got big but please, for the love of GOD
What do you think the word "specification" means
You are not a native English speaker. Take the L and close the thread.
says the ESL. Funny part is you'll never realize why you were wrong
>no they have to be exactly the same, muh semantics
XCOM has fungible units in that you can always recruit another randomly-generated unit with essentially the same stats and combat role. This is not true in Fire Emblem. If Vander dies, for instance, you cannot create another unit with the same growths, personal skill, etc. In that sense Fire Emblem units are non-fungible. Classic/Casual has nothing to do with it
He means you can replace units easily
So, like Fire Emblem then (except we all know you pussies use the rewind or restart the mission in the earlier games and never roll with it)
UH OH ESL retard alert
>not a new IP
look bro, we already know you used a word you didn't understand. Fire Emblem is made with permadeath and replacing units in mind, just like Xcom is.
Fire Emblem does not have generic units. Losing specific units can leave you with holes for a long time or even tank your run entirely.
I don't think you've ever actually played XCOM.
>Playing Fire Emblem for a deep tactics experience
Now the game is out and the normalfags are even saying the same shit, the Engage homos are losing their minds. Return to form my ass
no other Fire Emblem was Candyland: The Game
And Ganker was always full of white supremacists and trannies. Yes we've heard it all kid.
Hello this is said AI here to inform you that you are a gay and that Fire Emblem existed before 2015. My cold superior logic that has determined white people are more attractive has also determined that you are a coping zoomer.
but this game was literally made, marketed to, and for them?
>play to Chapter 11, it gets better trust me
I don't think I can bro
What's the point of those shitty bond rings without skills other than to have filler before you get more Emblem rings? I don't see why you'd ever want to spend points on the gacha system instead of raising bonds for example.
They're for when I do my no Emblem run but still want stat sticks for my units. They really should have limited you to like 2 Emblem Rings per map. Enough to give you a lot of space with experimentation, not enough to steamroll the map. Unless they do on Maddening, I haven't played that yet.
There's no point in raising bonds unless you're going to be using the ring anyways, want to reclass the unit or are at endgame and thus have enough skill points for exactly one actually good skill to inherit. Also you can only earn skill points if you have a ring of any sort equipped, so at least early on you definitely want at least a handful, if only to make sure the slot is filled and the unit is getting points. Some of the S rank skills are alright and some of the very endgame maps have deployment limits over 12 so you're gonna have to use a couple anyways unless you use the dlc stuff I guess.
This is the premier example of why all games should have a NO STORY mode
This game would jump from a 7/10 to a 10/10 if you had a mode that just cut out all the annoying voice acting, character interactions, painful cutscenes, and everything story related and was pure mechanical gameplay. Even skipping and fast forwarding stuff is immersion breaking and having to listen to these screeching English or Japanese voice actors
Unfortunately it's already been proven that the majority don't give a fuck. Characters and stories are always the most talked about thing and many bought the game because of VAs and cutscenes.
retard shut the fuck up
literally just press START if you hate story so much, like goddamn you're stupid lol and you think you're making some epic mic drop argument
The more i play it the more i like it. My biggest complaint so far is that the game drowns in units, while also poorly balancing them. Lapis for example is just dead weight, a chapter after you get her she is immediately outclassed by another unit you get
Now that I've played a bit of the game I see what all the doomposting was about: it's literally as close to a direct sequel to Awakening as you can possibly get. And as a fan of Awakening, I'm loving this. Cope harder, 3HRchuds.
This is a pretty pathetic and shameless attempt to try to get awakening bros to support you engage homo.
Where? On Ganker? Gimme a fucking break. Every time I bring up Awakening I get tackled by 50 chuds telling me how dogshit my taste is. Fuck off.
It’s literally at best a bad copy of Awakening.
Not only is it completely censored in the shipping/ranks department compared to Awakening’s entire focus on male-female couples, its gameplay is barely a step towards it and still lacks.
Awakening literally saved the series’, you’d think they’d draw from it more but they’ve failed every time since.
I hated the designs and artstyle at first and the writing isn't particularly great, but I find myself somehow really enjoying this, I like every character so far. Maybe it's just the fact that it's internally consistent, it's honest about what it's trying to be and does a decent job at it. Meanwhile Fates for example had a lot of cool looking characters with absolute dogshit joke personalities and you'd feel cheated every time.
I miss my castle so much bros, what online features do engage have?
You can pet a dog and do push ups
you guys got me with the gameplay good meme this shit is ass all around
The next one will become a movie game. Hopefully Kojima can point Fire Emblem in the right direction
Should have emulated.
Lmao they sure did get you. It's fire emblem, the gameplay can only be so good.
>another threads just becomes a full circlejerk of shitpost
Is like you fags are trying really hard at something but is on a constant fail
this is what happens when your game is shit and nobody even wants to talk about it
I mean,what is there to talk about?
>haha I like the funny hat girl always being obsessed about the Shinryu-sama haha
Yuzu or Ryujinx for Steam Deck?
Ryujinx has laggy cut scenes, but Yuzu seems crashy and has some visual glitches.
>Ryujinx has laggy cut scenes
no it doesn't. Something is wrong with your shit.
this board badly needs flags
Americans are the ones that got fucked and this is American hours. No need
Game runs good for me on Ryujinx but for some reason the game will crash to desktop almost consistently when I go back to base. But only if I'm playing on 2k which doesn't seem to tax my PC all that much to begin with, playing on 1k it's fine.
Anyone else have that problem?
I went in pretty hyped, but it's managed to surprise me in the first few chapters. They managed to endear me to Lumera a lot more than I expected for her brief story presence, and the voice actress on Alear is killing it, really brings her to life as someone confused and uncertain about the role they've been put in. She's still... an eyesore, but I'm genuinely liking her. The gameplay is fun and well presented and the Somniel is a perfect balance of brevity and things to do.
I know what you did
I'm not sorry.
>Shit voice acting
The actual state
>3HRchuds still shitposting
Get fucked. *This* is what Fire Emblem is supposed to be. 3H was an outlier. I hear Persona got a Switch release if you're itching for more of that type of shit.
The hat and spikes on heels ruin it completely
I'm only on chapter 4 and hard is filtering me, literally impossible to save everyone.
And I thought I was a strategy brainlet... Chapter 4 was manageable for me but also very fun, the game will present you with very obvious chokepoints and give you a fat armored dude to park on them, it also wants you to abuse Celine's teleport. There's not many variables to juggle yet, keep trying.
Mages and louis will carry you for the first few chapters. Im on hard and ch 5 was the hardest one, after that it was smooth sailing
So how nonsensical is the plot really? The only place I see praising it is /feg/ but half the posts on there right now looks like shameless shilling.
It's basically Awakening. You're an amnesiac, some cult is resurrecting a dragon, and you go to neighboring kingdoms for support. Really don't know what all the doom and gloom is about. 3H was dogshit for the first half, literally babysitting teenagers for 20 hours.
that general is in full cope mode with a few shills this shit is as predicted fates tier
The plot makes perfect sense, it's just pretty simple. It's not Fates nonsense again, it's just a basic good vs evil plot with no real frills.
I'm 2 hours in and the plot is easy to follow, but the writing is complete garbage. It feels like I'm watching some low budget anime.
Plot is simple, but fine. Supports on the other hand.....hope you love listening about drinking tea
They all start really lame but I find that A's and some B's get decent. Nothing hitting the real highs of the series but competent enough.
Half of supports feel like they made one C support and split it in 3 parts, its really bad
This, those fags at the general are coping hard. They don't realize most people think the game is fates tier and think it's just some shitposters from /feg/
What fire emblem game should i play first?
Awakening and then 3H. Best games in the franchise
I need to check on my 3ds every now and then...make sure it works and the buttons are good.
Fire emblem 7 for the gba.
Play the GBA games on loop for the rest of your life.
When you get bored of that, romhacks.
>game runs great
>keeps crashing all the time for some reason
Any idea why the fuck this is happening?
Sometimes that's just how it is with emulators, the game is quite new
My game crashed a few times, but I made a habit of restarting the game after each chapter and it's been fine since.
In the Somniel? It was happening to me too, switching to OpenGL instead of Vulkan seemed to fix it with no real noticeable drop in performance.
yes, it also happened when I tried to use engage on a unit with a different weapon/movement than the emblem
Is it me or is the OST really shit. Nothing really sticks out so far. The final battle theme better be kino to make up for it.
Did you get to ch 10 yet? That one is great. Tried looking it up on youtube, but cant find it
I'm liking it. I think more than 3H so far.
Don't care. Gameplay is good. Here for games, not a VN.
I played telltale games for the gameplay by the way
Goddamn those fuckers are on some Cyberpunk on release levels of cope.
>Been scouring FEエンゲージ to see the nips reaction to the game and its overall really positive.
Most are playing F!Alear and really love her, she's getting a ton of art.
>Many are commenting how its the "best feeling" FE in story and gameplay since a long time. I'll copy some comments
>In general the overall feeling seems to be "I'm finally playing FE again after such a long time!"
Holy shit the actual state
This is what I'm talking about, those posts seem manufactured as hell.
>Overall the story is what I would expect of an average FE, and of a commemorative title, so nothing great, but it's nothing underwhelming either. I had fun, like I did with every other title in the series, and it's what mattered more for me.
It's kinda sad
>read the general
>it's just people talking about gameplay and censorship
>meanwhile this thread is 50% 3H trannies seething
>You can put comments on them with preset words
I strangely enjoy these types of comments over being able to type in whatever you want
I'm playing this game on Maddening mode, switched the voice acting to Japanese and so far I'm having a lot of fun 🙂
Honestly i only play fire emblem girls because i like girls with armor
Edelgard wins again.
Judging by this thread and what people are saying, it’s not as good as 3 Houses. No marriage either so I think I’m just going to replay 3 Houses instead.
There's no marriage but there are blatant love confessions. Though in the American version most of those confessions were rewritten to be platonic because Americans shudder at the thought of two teenagers being romantic.
Yeah that’s gay
>it’s not as good as 3 Houses
so by that merit it plays better?
The character design is so hit and miss.
The initial 3 guys (Jeigan, staff girl, mage boy) you get are so painfully generic which makes me feel hypocritical because the old games had Red guy and Green guy but somehow they had more personality.
Etie is my favorite character so far but when she joins with Alfred who is just the same design as Dimitri from 3H it really brings it down.
His sister isn't too bad because at least her outfit is goofy.
"3HRT" aged like milk given how apeshit trannies have been going over that scene from the OP of male Alear shattering to reveal female Alear. None of them talked or gave a shit about Cleobulus but they've latched onto Engayge hard.
Dont reply to the /feg/ schizo, you just encourage him
What a disaster this piece of shit is.. and the longest wait for a Fe game yet after the most popular entry. Throw away everything that made the last game the most successful in franchise history and go back to what almost killed it lol. Way to destroy what was becoming a monster IP with one installment.
Literally what is there to enjoy about an 80 hour game where 40 hours is spend running around a tiny hub talking to people with some of the most amateur romance writing ever put to paper? What is so enthralling about that? What the fuck is wrong with you Persona fans? Holy shit, I'm losing my fucking mind here. Go stick with fucking 3 Houses. It's the oddball out in 30 years worth of games; it's not meant to be the new standard. Fucking hell, you people flew off the fucking spectrum at this point.
>It's the oddball out in 30 years worth of games
>the game that saved the series was based around your kids from the future from picking your waifu
uhhhhh short term memory, retard?
So what retard? Support conversations are like 3 minutes long tops and didn't take a substantial chunk of time to do. It was such a tiny part of a the actual game but you retards act like it was the whole draw of the game
So does Sigurd care at all that he never sees the love of his love ever again? That he's just a slave to a vtuber nation?
>implying he didn't spent 1000 years doing the mom dragon, or at least oogling her body
Emblems are not the REAL characters, it's complicated
He makes an offhand comment about not being their for his son. But no he never brings up his whore of a wife who cucked him with the man who murdered him.
>Nintendo exclusive releases
>Ganker is instantly aggressive
Why are Engagefags crying over 3H now? Go enjoyed your censored LGBT game, why make it some weird competition?
>this game is aggressively average
sounds like a fire emblem game.
>Throw away everything that made the last game the most successful in franchise history and go back to what almost killed it
>Way to destroy what was becoming a monster IP with one installment
How will you cope when engage sells the most?
It won't. Word of mouth will kill Engage's legs.
haha that's garden gnometendo for you
>fag is just angry that a fantasy wargame didn't become some persona-lite abortion that FE fans didn't enjoy
no one will mourn your absence, gay. Gonna enjoy the salt you generate now that the tables have turned.
Engage is about as much of a 'fantasy wargame' as fucking Candyland is
Which is closer than FETH was, a clear improvement. Glad we can agree on this.
I want to engage with Celica if you catch my drift
I don't hate it, but I have no reason to replay it after I finish my initial playthrough. Say what you want about 3H but at least that game had some replayability.
You already finished it? How many chapters does it have?
>already beaten it
confirmed for playing on casual difficulty, you didn't beat the game
the pirated version has been out all week
if you're a masochist for brain numbing slogs maybe
I like 3H but there was only one route doing and it was Edelgard
This guy reminds me so much of Android 21 from that Dragon Ball game
Eh... Engage is probably my favorite FE so far, am I wrong?
So 3 Houses is just plain better? Which game should I play?
Play Fe 7 for the gba.
at least I didn't pay for it. Back to Front Mission I go
>the actual cope on /feg/ once Copium Maximus was done and people starting posting the real reaction in Japan
what do the Nips actually think?
Check 5ch, at best they think it's medicore.
Kinda curious to see the amazon.jp reviews. But I imagine most of these japs will just shill for daddy Nintendo
is it true the game was censored? need proof
Only four "romances" are about romance kek
yeah but what does the actual JP say? i'm also mostly curious about stuff like veyle and jean
JP is mostly the same, there is no translation coping this time
why would you lie on the internet
AHAHAHAHAHA WHAT A CLUCK
You are purposefully lying like you made up that Anna CG.
Cease being an autist
>People actually saw these character designs and thought this game would be anything but extreme trash
I thought we couldn't get worse than the fujoshit in 3H but not only did that game end up being pretty good, the character designs are STILL way less embarrassing and more varied.
and history will show it.
Is there any way of looking at a weapons actual stats? Whenever I examine them in my inventory it just shows the adjusted combat block for the unit rather than the weapons actual stats.
Is there any way of cycling through units while looking at the detailed view for a unit? I'm positive this was a something you can do in past games.
Is Lucina just completely useless? I have no idea what she actually does
The story seems fine enough so far. It mostly just serves the purpose of moving Toothpaste and co. between cool fights but that's all it really needs to do.
>but that's all it really needs to do
I mean my favorite FE is Sacred Stones and although there are some parts of the story that I actually really like, the story in that game mostly serves the same purpose. It's an excuse to go on a world tour and rout some bandits/monsters.
>Awakening was kino
>Fates was forgettable garbage
>Three Houses was kino
>Engage is forgettable garbage
Fates was memorable for its silliness.
what the fuck did they do to the level up jingle i swear there's not one fucking thing with this game that isn't a massive disappointment i already have to live through this shit voice acting (both languages) and story and now i hear this fucking generic rpg sfx when i level up
Its kinda annoying that the level up dialogue is not voiced, really bothers me for some reason
An actual step back from 3H lol
Though it could get a bit annoying
Can you be a family man in this game? I know in 3H Male Byleth explicitly has children with Shamir and Manuela in his paired endings with them. Can Alear do the same with any of his supports?
Only with his sister
>Going for the one confirmed used goods
I'm not an insecure incel like you so yeah I have no problem with her dead boyfriend.
No. All the endings are general neutral so it doesn't differentiate between male and female. Also the handful of endings at are romantic just amount to "teehee I like you" in contrast to 3H were the ring signified an actual marriage proposal.
They designed the game so that everyone is bisexual. So of course theres no kids. Lesbians can’t breed
>last boss literally has a pity party speech at the end about being all alone
>you are a member of our family, Alear! The Emblem that connects us all
I clapped and cheered and then they all went back to their much better games lmao
>tfw /vg/ has better discussion than Ganker
This board really has gone to shit
/vg/ is just endlessly circlejerking the game brushing off any criticism with "hurrr go back to playing 3HRT". If that's the kind of discussion you ant then go back there.
Impressive levels of cope for how shill pozzed /feg/ is.
/feg/ is literally acting like a gamefaqs technical support group just so they can avoid discussing anything critical about the game lmao
me too man I do the same thing I hate that stringy shit
>Supports are back to being Awakening tier
I am done with the series. It's been so many disappointments for years and the few joys that I did get, like cipher and echoes, are buried dead in the ground. It's obvious this series is not made for someone like me anymore.
it's not too late to come join us and fight against bronquia
Man, the Dept Heaven games just hit different. All the mainlines are almost masterpieces
The contrast between the moe character design and the absolute genocide happening in Yggdra has always been one of my favourite things about that game.
They are definitely a unique experience.
>no paired couples by mid-game
Sex and procreation with children is in this game? If its true then I will buy it.
In Awakening? Yeah it's the entire point with all the kid units. You can even fuck your best friend's daughter from the future and he's cool with it.
Kinda silly Engage complaints. At no time is it shown as a super dark game to take the game seriously. It's like comparing a fantasy comedy anime with a seinen fantasy. Engage has never tried to be a seinen.
I'm playing on hard, just unlocked the hub.
Should I be spending most of my money on the "Donations" thing? I don't understand what I get out of it yet.
More drops after story and optional battles and the ability to adopt animals, which drop items after every battle. Im on ch 12 and cash has been really tight, so be warned.
So if you invest in an area the the story decides not to go to ever again, you get nothing?
You can go back to any area, dont think it will ever cut you off
>game has weapon triangle again we RETVRN lads
>it's just used for break and that's it
>protect the village from bandits map
fire emblem is BACK
lmao people defending 3H have so much shitty taste, at least shitpost with a decent nu-fe
I'm not defending 3H, Engage just happens to be a worse game which is genuinely impressive.
You didnt play either if you really think so
>if you have a different opinion than me you obviously didn't play the game!
Love this comeback. Can't you shills think of something better?
This happens with every franchise ever. Game N is always compared positively to Game N+1.
>"B-But Three Houses"
Stop trying to change the subject and just admit that you have shit taste for liking this soulless vtuber shit.
I've played the GBA games, the Ike games, Awakening and Three Houses. I own Conquest and Echoes on 3DS but never got around to playing them.
Out of Conquest, Echoes and Engage, are any of them worth playing? Which one should I play next?
Play conquest, both are equally bad but it's at least more memorable and you will get the jokes.
Conquest has some of the best gameplay in the series, but otherwise hit-or-miss, for me it easily keeps me coming back due to how replayable and fun it is. Echoes is a very soulful remake of Gaiden with many genuine improvements, but also genuine problems that carry over from original game. It has fantastic presentation, great characters, and decent story.
Both are great in different ways.
Really depends on what you're looking for in a Fire Emblem.
>Conquest has some of the best gameplay in the series
I've heard this a few times which is why I bought it originally. But it has that pair up mechanic from Awakening, right? I really didn't like that very much.
It has pair up mechanics, but they got fine-tuned to work differently from Awakening. It's not mindless like it was in the previous title, but instead can be either a helpful or debilitating option.
To expand on this, stat bonuses are entirely dependent on a unit’s class and support rank. Putting two units together will grant the stat bonus and one free guard every 5 or so attacks the unit deals or receives instead of the random chance it was in awakening. Units paired up that way cannot attack together.
Units that enter combat with another unit adjacent to them will receive bonuses to in combat stats only (hit, avoid, crit, dodge). The adjacent unit will follow up the attacking unit with their own attack that deals half the damage of if they were to initiate combat. The follow up attack is also immune to any post combat penalties a weapon may inflict, so it can be beneficial to set up good weapons with bad drawbacks to use in the follow up attacks.
Enemies also utilize both in maps so that’s a step up from awakening.
Not just can, enemies will use and abuse it. I fucking hate those reinforcement flying bow cunts on C14.
>surprising amount of great characters in the rough that survived localization (silas comes to mind)
>top 5 ost
>online is dead so it's a lot harder to farm skills and my castle shit
shits all over engage easily
Conquest and Echoes are pretty much polar opposites. Conquest has good maps but everything else is shit. Echoes has shit maps but everything else is good.
Echoes has the best presentation in the series by far, but the developers made the weird decision not to redo some of the maps which are considered some of the worse in the entire franchise so take that as you will.
It is weird how so many maps were not remade when originally they were bad not due to intentional design, but instead FE2 pushing the hardware and filesize to the utter limit and thus things had to be sacrificed.
Great gameplay, bad story and characters
Good Gameplay, Great Presentation, Map Designs from several console generations ago
Great gameplay, bad story and characters
It's honestly just pick your poison. Do you want an overall more solid package or do you want packages with higher highs ,
