I don't know if any of y'all like Fire Emblem here but I decided to start a thread anyway.

Yeah but only till the wii.


The only FE I played was the Shadow Dragon remake for the DS. I didn't finish it. Should I bother?


No, the first game sucks and the remake is not any better. Try out a newer one if you're still curious.


Emulate any of the GBA ones or the one for Gamecube.


The only one I completed was FE4 and that was some fucking good shit. What should I play next? I'd prefer something I can play on a handheld console.

&ltWriters for Lovestruck, a mobile game produced by Voltage Entertainment USA, have won an average 78 per cent pay increase and greater transparency at work after a ground-breaking 21-day strike. It is the first successful game worker strike in the history of the game development industry.

How are coomers able to strike anyways? You'd think that porn games would be the last place to get unionized.


I'm guessing it's probably because it's a niche within a niche within a niche, so the company is relatively small.

#Voices4Devs: Voice Actors Give Online Support for Game Unionization
>April 12, 2019

>As more people working in video games try to form their own union, they’ve recently gotten another burst of online support. Apparently starting on April 2, voice actors united under the #Voices4Devs hashtag on Twitter to call attention to the developers they work with on games.

>A wide variety of voice actors from AAA titles and indies have joined in[…]
>Game Workers Unite, a key organization dedicated to the unionization movement, and others in the game development community have responded positively to the show of online support from voice actors[…]
>SAG-AFTRA, whom Game Workers Unite appropriately mentioned as an influence, is the acting community’s union.
>SAG-AFTRA is also a member of AFL-CIO, the largest federation of unions in America, and who shared a public statement with Kotaku that expressed support for game developers and their efforts to unionize in February.
>Seeing voice actors give online support for game unionization might remind people of another time they took an even more active stand in the game industry. According to NPR, voice actors under SAG-AFTRA—including the prolific Jennifer Hale, whose roles include Mass Effect‘s female Commander Shepard—refused to work with many AAA game companies, going on a strike that started in 2016 and ended in 2017.



Here's a video on video game unionization made 3 years ago. I think its still relevant as it gives a pretty good recap of unionization efforts in the games industry.

woops sorry if the video jumps forward to the half hour mark didnt mean to do that.

In April I intend to run a turn-based, text-based simulation of the world of 1945 in which participants join as join as countries, parties, guerrillas, individuals, or most any other position they can think of.

Here's a link to the thread where people can join and find the rules on how to play: http://eregime.org/index.php?showtopic=17895

A bunch of participants already come from this site so I figure I'd mention the game here. If there's any questions, feel free to ask.

Nukes in 1945 won't be powerful enough to turn the world into an apocalyptic wasteland, so no.

All the persons reserved as superpowers seem pretty competent (although we have an opening for Chiang Kai-shek.)


They aren't now either. Separate AM from FM, please.


Yeah I get that "nuke" can refer to different things or be used interchangeably. Just saying, all the debated consequences of nuclear war discussed during the 1950s-80s (Mutually Assured Destruction, Nuclear Winter, radiation all over the place, etc.) clearly can't happen with the technology available in the late 1940s, so there wouldn't really be a basis for me to say "okay guys I'm not simulating something approximating a post-apocalyptic world, game over."

Game has now begun.

I'll stop bumping this thread.

Can this be Series become iconic?

I really enjoyed the Story and although the Open World Mechanics were really not perfect, I think Sucker Punch did good for their first major Game as a Studio.

Also the Cinematic Elements of this game are just kino. The game let's you choose to play in Kurosawa Mode if you want, so we already know who this Game is partially dedicated to

Is that really an issue though?


>but too easy

you can play in lethal mode you know?


Don't wanna play this game cause I don't want to kill my ancestors, lmao


Based and filial piety pilled.


Understandable, because you kill a lot of Mongolians throughout this game…

No theres nothing wrong with vidya or escapism in general, but channeling your leftist feeling into games and scratching the itch that way does seem fairly counterproductive imo


Not him but I fear that forgetting about politics or leftism when I engage in a hobby will make me less resistant to liberalism in the long term


Leftism is utterly fucking dead and buried, it makes no difference whether you play a videogame or go in the streets, it's the same effect on the world.


"Excuse me but my fantasy setting is explicitly decolonial and all the fantasy societies have a rich and vibrant culture without being romanticized."

Sounds neat. Most fantasy tends to sit in the medieval tech level though, so not a lot of systems would fit.

True, also in my experience players like to do rebellious or revolutionary shit in roleplaying games for some reason.


I haven't thought about it because I don't keep a radlib living in my head rent free.

>George Trosley
Not sure why the name escaped me back when I posted this, but Ed Roth is the artist I was actually thinking of.


>She should make a raised fist when she wins.
That was the intention but there are no bones in her hand yet. I can try a quick fix.


>there are no bones in her hand yet

That sounds extremely painful


File: 1618832687813.png ( 35.43 KB , 468x470 , .png )

Yeah but having shitty bones is worse.


These two issues have been fixed:
- Corrected names of end markers for winning and losing animations.
- Added a bone for fingers on the right hand and animated a fist curl.
The rigging of the fingers is very dodgy but you're never close enough to notice.


I'll start.

>Chrono Trigger
I wouldn't say it's ahead of its time in any respect, it's just polished beyond belief with a team of people who couldn't be touched. The battle system, the plot, the time traveling aspects, etc had been done in RPGs prior. In fact, there isn't much in CT that I would say future JRPGs took from.
I hate on Earthbound more than I should, not because I actually dislike the game (I think it's a really fun time), but compared to how good some of the RPGs on that console were and how clunky the game was at times, I just can't say it's even in the top five of its genre. Also Mother 3 exists and while it's not fair to compare the two, one is a 8/10 game and one makes Chrono Trigger look like IdeaFactory shlock.
FE7 isn't the best of the series, but it's such an easy game to sink 20+ hours into without realizing where the time gone. Speaking of which, pic related is what I'm going with. Fire Emblem isn't nearly as good as it is without what this game establishes. It's also one of the few games in the series that's meaningfully critical of the premise of the series (superpowered monarchs tear the countryside a new asshole, except this game points out that's not actually good)


How do you feel about The Binding Blade? I found it at a cheap price in a second hand store.


File: 1618681422976.jpg ( 60.27 KB , 640x443 , Super Mario RPG.jpg )

Actual Best SNES RPG comin through.


It's hard for me to give it a fair shot considering how much of an improvement FE7 and FE8 are. There's just a lot of weak units (even for casual runs) and some truly awful maps. Chapter 14 of FE6 is my least section of gameplay in the entire series, and it looks even worse because FE8's main desert map is one of the coolest fights both from a map design and plot standpoint.


>They're all decent
After Tellios the series became increasingly bad.

>Otherwise you'll be waiting for hundreds of turns to get your preferred romantic pairings.

Just play a regular galge/otome at this point. The dating sim aspects of FE are honestly terrible if you've ever played VNs worth their salt.

It's a decent 3 hour game imo


Fucking awful game, don't even try it. Utterly miserable, explains nothing, repetitive, boring, etc etc.

I love F-Zero GX


Did they ever manage to fix the glaring control flaws in DKC Returns?
