      Pikazo's style can work, especially with the noticeable upgrade in graphical fidelity, but it's marred by excessive detail that poisons the design as a whole. Part of me thinks this was designed to highlight the game's customization mechanics, but the character designs don't match the level of mechanical complexity of accessories, so we're left with characters that just too much. Also, same face.

      tl;dr too much going on for no reason.

      It's a great style that fits perfectly with the tone of the game. It's a shame we may never see another FE game that style. Also, my wife in Hidari's style.

    The only downside of her art is that there didn't seem to be much uniformity in design for characters in each country. It's more of a director issue. Like they had her make 100 characters and randomly plopped them down on a map. Instead of deciding beforehand that these guys would live in the desert and they should dress this way.

    There's no one I want to use. I already used everyone I liked in my first palythrough. Just none of the characters appeal to me.
    And I don't even think the character design is at fault here. The main problem I have is the 3D models, mainly the faces.
    This game really needed 2D portraits.

      Mika Pikazo is one of the greatest eastern artists around these days.
      But her designs are fricking atrocious. Absolutely garbage in the purest forms. You can still have amazing art skill, but be terrible in character design and shes an example of that.
      Artists in this thread remember that an artist can fail in only two ways.
      Fundamental skills
      Design
      If you're lacking in any of those or both, then you're in deep shit.

        Mika's designs are pretty good, they have all the checkboxes.
        they have good emphasis to justify the proportions, harmony and balance in its componets.

        Like the design is good no matter what school you pick from, the only thing that's questionable is color choices with some characters, but that's more of an individual artistic expression and less a design problem.

          If you don't care for spoilers I will tell you. Alear is a Fell Dragon hence the red hair but was found injured by Lumera, a Divine Dragon who was lonely. She says, "No one ever slam dunked my pussy and I'm lonely for my lack of family so I'ma adopt you," to the injured Alear and Alear, who is essentially just a puppet to his dad's will says, "Frick it, I failed dad, I'm gonna die to my wounds or him. Might as well go along with this." So Alear is adopted then goes in a coma to recover from said wounds and also undergoes Divine Dragon conversion therapy, which shows in their blue hair.

              You joke but once I caved in and started watching video essay slop about the games I like.
              Somehow it was just a plot summary and maybe a wikipedia summary of the franchise before the video goes off the rails and the eceleb tells you their full life story, goes all the way back to the mesozoic time period to talk about the japanese tectonic plates where the ancestor of the studio founder would one day be born, or both back to back.
              It's honestly really weird how it's all information you can easily get without playing the game and just reading wikipedia summaries and TV tropes.
              When you realize they all use either generic cutscene footage or tutorial footage I really question if they even play the games they make videos about.
              Then I realized literally all the shitpost bait came from these videos, none of the bait from any jp franchise I know can name concrete plot or character details that weren't already on a youtube video.

      Dedicated fans grew up, learned japanese if they didn't already, and then got real jobs, with this money they are also collectively funding multiple industries that pander to them (Anime/LNs/VNs/JRPGs/Gacha/Etc).
      The only people left with enough free time to waste on the internet today is trannies, anime hating westoids and zoomers, and neither of them actually respect anything from japan aside from maybe begrudgingly FROM games and maybe persona.

    The female artist they hired for Three Houses was awful. She did strictly otome in her pastwork and it shows. I don't have a problem with Awakening, Fates, Engage but holy frick does Three Houses have the most otome shit I've seen in a video game. Dimitri just barely escaped the typical prince with an earing trope that otome shit have, earings on dudes is fricking gay.

      My issue with Chinatsu is that her artwork for 3H is very inconsistent with boring poses. Just look up how she draws legendary Dimitri in feh compared to his fallen alt wearing the exact same armor. I actually like most of the post timeskip designs in 3H and find them pretty distinct, I just rather someone else draw the same characters.
      Even Mika can manage to make the school versions of the lords look a little better thanks to her vibrant colors. She also doesn't give them neutral expressions and shows a bit of their personalities here.

    In an ideal world there would be no censorship at all. Gays and trannies would be allowed to have their media, and I'd be allowed to S rank Anna in Engage without some localizer telling me no. However, we currently live in a world where people feel.the need to destroy what they could safely ignore. Makes no sense to me.

            There’s no need to show Mario’s reps, Mario is the literal face of Nintendo and you guys are beyond stupid to not know that.

            Pokémon is the highest grossing franchise of all time and has a million unique designs.

            Fire Emblem is a niche strategy game for weebs where every character is an anime palette swap.

            You will never reach the heights of Mario and Pokémon whether your dating sim franchise is popular in Japan or not.

    Anonymous

    so I just finished engage a few minutes ago and I wonder if it's just me, but was it just a huge letdown from 3H?
    The support conversation were just hilariously bad, they went from you finding out sad or fricked up backstories like Lysitheas, Mariannes, political plots like the whole Duscar shit etc etc.
    The support convos in engage were stuff like "Hey dragon I love tea! oh you too?" "Oh the tea party we had was great! yeah!" "oh my god I have to build a tea trade to support my love for tea!", oh shit like 3 convos of Goldmary apologising for being cute. Not all were bad, but jesus christ the difference was jarring. And the emblem convos were even worse. They were straight up "Hey Marth, BANANA HAHA"
    The music was a massive letdown as well. I can still hear fodlan winds in my head at times, but nothing stood out much in engage.
    The combat was mixed. I liked the engage mechanic but the fact that weapons had no durability and that every weapon type had ranged variants meant that every damn unit had spammable range attacks, and so did you. archers and mages felt like shit because EVERYTHING was ranged anyway.
    The story was really fricking boring for the first half, but it did really pick up towards the end. I did really like (and felt sad) over Veyle, Zephia, Griss and a few others.
    And finally, the actual amount of content. 3H had 3.5 routes, all being around 100h each. Engage had one linear route a la 50h?!
    And most your characters were really bland. Alfred was just discount Ferdinand. Same lawful good noble but none of the spunk. The bad guys had all the good writing because they had some actual writing. The final fight also sucked since it was just over in a flash. And the final backstory to Sobron was just kinda out of nowhere and left unfinished.
    Yeah rant over Veyle is cute tho also lmao marrying your sister

          I don't feel like going through everything but you're vastly overrating 3H's characters and music and it's clearly you suck ass at FE if you're complaining about Engage's gameplay.
          Also Engage has significantly better music, I hated almost everything in 3H and the fact that you bring up Fodlan winds as "memorable" only proves how fricking repetitive the game was with the game forcing you through the same fricking maps like 40 times.

          NTA, but your attempt to undervalue archers and mages tells me you 100% didn't play Maddening, and probably didn't even play Hard. You will need Wind tomes and bows to shoot down fliers in actual difficulties and your dismissal tells me you didn't play anything serious. Also in reality theres 1.5 routes worth of content in 3H at most, so many maps are recycled it's not even funny. When base Engage has 40 actual maps, all different with paralogues included. Not including Tempest Trials or DLC.

      You measure content like an absolute moron. 3H had like 24 maps or something like that, that you can play through 4 times if you're masochistic enough, and each playthrough also came with 75 hours of academy padding.
      Engage has 41 maps, with far more variety in layouts and objectives.

        NTA, but your attempt to undervalue archers and mages tells me you 100% didn't play Maddening, and probably didn't even play Hard. You will need Wind tomes and bows to shoot down fliers in actual difficulties and your dismissal tells me you didn't play anything serious. Also in reality theres 1.5 routes worth of content in 3H at most, so many maps are recycled it's not even funny. When base Engage has 40 actual maps, all different with paralogues included. Not including Tempest Trials or DLC.

        >3H had 3.5 routes

        >CF = 1 if we're being generous

        >And finally, the actual amount of content. 3H had 3.5 routes, all being around 100h each.
        You measure content like an absolute moron. 3H had like 24 maps or something like that, that you can play through 4 times if you're masochistic enough, and each playthrough also came with 75 hours of academy padding.
        Engage has 41 maps, with far more variety in layouts and objectives.

        I guess the biggest take from this is that I measured content in terms of story, not how many unique maps there are. You're right that there was a lot of reused maps in 3H, but maps were reused quite a bit in Engage as well.

        I don't feel like going through everything but you're vastly overrating 3H's characters and music and it's clearly you suck ass at FE if you're complaining about Engage's gameplay.
        Also Engage has significantly better music, I hated almost everything in 3H and the fact that you bring up Fodlan winds as "memorable" only proves how fricking repetitive the game was with the game forcing you through the same fricking maps like 40 times.

        This is just "you're wrong because I liked other sounds more"
        My biggest shock was in how shitty the supports and bond conversations were. I expected to find way more depth in the characters from it but instead I got "haha tea!!"

          The story is fricking moronic. The only reason people consider it good is because it juggles a lot. Fans don't like to talk about how much it drops the ball.

          Most of 3H's supports aren't much better if at all. There's a couple here and there that actually go into the character's backstory or whatever but the vast majority are about as good as Engage's supports because that's typical FE style.

              They probably did, most of 3H is pretty mediocre writing wise. There's some good world building and it's "morally grey"(exclusively because everyone's a fricking idiot but Byleth) so it seems interesting but I wouldn't call the writing anything special, even for FE as a series exclusively.

        You hear Distant Skies for 11 maps and Fodlan Winds for 5, but Fodlan Winds is in the first 5 maps of the game, which are shared between every single route so it's basically 20 if you're being a completionist or at least 10 if you're doing merely 2 routes.

    was a good thread before the cumbrain homosexuals left their dedicated shitting threads to start stinking up the one where people actually talk about the games, as always

      That's what happens when you move to Ganker, in /vg/ we could easily ignore the derailments.

          Uncoordinated anons vs a group of dedicated schizos on cord. A group with organization and 24/7 uptime vs at most 3-5 posters who cared enough to try and do something..I wonder who would win?

    Is Engage the only game where the enemy actually pulls Warp tactics on you?

      I wanna say Thracia pulls some shit like that but I can't be sure. Either that or Conquest Lunatic.

        Conquest has the ninjas and the puppets tossing you around in Ryoma's final map, but that's really the only time. It's nit exactly them warping into the middle of your units.

          Honestly that was just a guess anyway, it feels like the kinda game that'd pull warping on you, same with Thracia. I love when the games just do bullshit you can do, hopefully we can go even further after Engage.

    I'm so glad this shitty game flopped and we'll never have to see this garbage artist serve up her slop in this franchise ever again.
