Welcome to THE RETRO WAIFU WARS.
Tonight, we'll be playing the best Fire Emblem in the series: Genealogy of the Holy War.
It's an epic tale of love, betrayal, struggle, and really, really fucking big maps.
Basically, there was a war between a dark god and some other gods a while ago, and today's political landscape is sculpted by the results of said war.
Looks like i'll be missing out on mounted emblem. Hope this does well.
Shhhh, we'll get to that.
There were 12 Crusaders during the Holy War, and all of their descendants are super strong or something. A lot of them are a part of the ruling class.
Currently, there's a prince ruling over Grandbell that the duchies answer to. Two of them got pissy about and banded together to start a rebellion.
Think you could throw up your pre-translated ROM OP? I'd love to try an earlier FE game like this
Contributin' some FE in exchange
To the east, shit is all sorts of fucked up. Isaacians are murdering a lot of dudes and it's probably not sanctioned. In response, Grandbell decides to do something about it.
The prince rounds up a bunch of lords and heads east to shit on those filthy sandnigger Isaacians.
Despite being Grandbell's allies, Verdane sends its best Grey Wizard to come and fuck OUR shit up.
What are you apologizing for?
One of my absolute favorite things about this game is how fucking 80's everyone's hair is. It's absurd.
SPEAKING OF MY FAVORITE THING ABOUT THIS GAME, IT'S FUCKING SIGURD
HIS FATHER HAS TRUSTED HIM WITH THE ABSOLUTE PROTECTION OF THE KINGDOM AND I'LL BE A MOTHERFUCKER AND A HALF IF I LET HIM DOWN
>Is probably a axe-user
He's no Galdolf
SIGURD AND AIDEEN HAVE BEEN BROS 4 LYFE
THIS ASSAULT WILL NOT STAND
MEANWHILE IN JUNGBY CASTLE
All of Aideen's soldiers refuse to ditch her. Noble, but foolish.
Sigurd BURNS WITH RIGHTEOUS FURY.
Noish and Alec refuse to let their master ride into battle alone!
In other news, I don't remember him talking like this the last time I played. Did /feg/ update the translation or something?
Was it ever explained in any of the other games that getting to the villages before the barbarians causes them to reinforce it?
I mean, they, like, close a gate in later games, but they never elaborate on why, do they?
Looks like we'll be playing as Oifaye for the first half of the game.
The big maps are the best part, anon.
Alec makes fun of Frankenstein because he doesn't have a horse and he's slow.
To be fair, that's a mighty strike against him in this game. Go fast or go home.
Fuck, I forgot how glorious these maps are. All we have to start off with are three horsemen and a knight.
Look at those fucking stats. Goddamn, Sigurd.
FE4 really is the best one. It's the only FE like it; you had to play it like you were controlling an army instead of just an assortment of units. I couldn't beat it during my playthrough though, I have to admit. There was no way for me to keep Deirdre alive on the last battle so I gave up.
Sigurd eviscerates a bandit with no hope of countering. Jesus fuck.
Well, that's too bad. I wanted to see that wallpaper finished.
Oh, I forgot. Noish comes with Critical and Charge. Yes, he's the only person we have right now capable of critical hits. Alec has Pursuit and Nihil, which makes him more reliable on offense.
Frankenstein has Vantage, but I don't give a shit about pleb-tier unmounted units.
Now that my turn's over, Snake takes the opportunity to chop a fucking horse in half.
RIP Midir, we hardly knew ye.
>not playing iron man mode
Snake carts Aideen off to the west and lets everybody loose to do whatever the fuck they want.
Naturally, this leads to raping and pillaging.
Indeed you do.
OH SHIT IT'S FUCKING LEX
REV UP THOSE EXPERIENCE GAINS
Besides the ones I LPed? Not really. I played a bit of Raidou, got up to the last dungeon before I got bored.
Alright, these two are both pretty solid. Lex has Vantage AND Paragon. Dude gains double the experience and he totes around a might axe.
Azel just has Pursuit, but that's hardly a bad thing.
>game knows foot units are so shit that it gives you dedicated axeman
So are you playing with a guide or not? Because you might now want to bench Azel in case you need a mage for something
Man, I love Sigurd. And Cuan. And Eltshan. And Levin. And Finn.
I came for the waifus and stayed for the husbandos.
I CANNOT stress how good Sigurd is.
Did I mention mounted units can move after attacking? Holy shit these guys are so good.
Frankenstein decides he has better things to do than defend the castle.
It sure is!
CHECK OUT THIS BIG BALLED BADASS
HE'S HERE TO SHIT ON FIGHTERS
Cuan comes with Adept and he just gets a free attack every now and again. Also, he's FUCKING FANTASTIC.
Finn has Pursuit and Miracle, but the poor bastard can only use lances, so he's useless this map.
Ethlin comes with Critical, and hilariously enough, she's a thousand times more useful than Mist ever was despite being level 1.
>86% chance to hit
Yeah, he can't really do anything but get last hits here.
>with a 22% chance
Well, this is gonna be fun.
>Cuan will never be your brother-in-law
Unfortunately, it looks like I've got 4 turns to reach each village.
I doubt that's going to happen, but I'll see if Sigurd can make it.
You can do it
>mfw Ethlyn promotes
Cuan reminds Sigurd that they're bros for life, even if he wasn't his literal brother in law.
Also, Azel might die.
>gets hit twice at 25%
One of the bad things about this game is that the numbers when your stat increase disappear and give no indication that they were ever there.
Ergo, no level up pics.
Frankenstein is really, really good at eating axes, but he has a knack for dodging them, too.
I remember trying a screenshot LP of this back when /feg/ was still kinda new.
I lost in Chapter 2 and gave up.Knock 'em dead for me, OP, and do what I failed to do.
Oh, I forgot to check out the boss.
... he's extremely unimpressive, but what else do you expect?
So you were the one that did Siggy's Awesome Adventure.
Speaking of LPs, Tact's FEE3 demo of Tacthack is up
This is the FEE3 demo. Fun fact about this: All of this was done in about 1 month after Tact's base version got fucked over by nightmare/feditor bs.
If you can, play it. Tell us what you think of it and what might need some rework. It's 10 chapters long and has all dialogue in (but no support cons)
Oh, every character also carries their own gold.
Lex is currently three times richer than everyone else.
>every character also carries their own gold.
>Every character carries their own gold
What's the matter? Too casual?
For some reason, Azel seems to be wearing girl's clothes under his robe.
Well that'd be stupid if you paid money to hire someone and the gold just disappeared.
The best part is married couples can give their gold to one another, and thieves can give and take too.
Hey! I saved one of the villages and picked up this sweet stat boost ring.
Speed reigns supreme.
Well, in all honesty it wouldn't be so bad if there was a trade button. Since it gives thieves more importance. But having to grind gold just to trade shit is all kinds of fucked up.
This boss didn't have anything to say. Almost literally nothing.
>needing stat boosts
Yeah, orange and green are better, I think.
I might drop this, I'm having a hard time coming up with stuff to put.
Raymond got NTRd big timeand he got killed by a dragoon
Midir is... alive.
Midir is okay.
He comes with Charge and Pursuit, so he has the potential to get off a lot of attacks, but I doubt he'll do it very often.
Purple is the color of royalty. Give it a shot, it should blend well with Sigurd. I'm not really an artist.
The other castle finally notices that some shit has gone down, and they rebuild the bridge in an attempt to kill me.
It won't work.
Oh look! It's Sigurd's good buddy Alvis, here to drop something off for him.
>totally not going to be able to recruit.
>Totally won't become evil
With those stats? He either joins at the final chapter, Dies and becomes irrelevant.. or becomes evil.
SIGURD DOESN'T EVEN NEED ANY OTHER WEAPONS NOW, IT'S ALL OVER
>Breaking the sword once and repairing it gives it critical properties
>A silver sword where skill% is crit chance
>That Sigurd gets
Jesus christ. Just farm some gold so he can get the stat boosters and it's smooth sailing
>Sigurd can now kill anything in two hits
Best boy, can't wait to recruit him later.
Am I feeding my healer half the kills?
Is it a bad idea?
Is it worth it?
Oh, yeah, the boss.
Dude's decently strong, but Sigurd is going to rip him in half anyway.
What a cool guy i sure hope he doesn't i dunno
NTR Sigurd,then preside to kill Sigurd and his army,then have his own son kill him and his Wife (who he Brainwashed and NTR'd away from Sigurd) killed by there son whose getting mind control'd by some dragon or some shit.
People shit on FE4 because it's "too easy," but the bosses with holy weapons are fucking ridiculous. Leptor can one-shot just about everyone on your team even if they are at max level.
Alvis is the best villain in the series. Walter and Wallhart are close seconds
He's no douchebag, he was just forced to grow up at the age of 7 and rule his broken house. He knows what needs to be done to not be such a fuck up like his old man. He's also
very beautiful, goddamn.
This isn't Awakening. A growth rate over 45% is considered good.
Blowing EVERYONE out of the water as usual, Sigurd gets a hearty +2 HP, +1 str, +1 skill, +1 luck, and +1 def.
Calm down, dude.
Uh... Azel is a little slow today.
Alvis is the best villain in all of vidya, IMO.
As for FE, I haven't finished PoR yet but Ashnard seems based as fuck.
Nergal was almost as bland and forgettable as the douchebags from FFT (Vormav and co.).
Ashnard is the motherfucking king of FE villains to me. That sword is metal as fuck.
AZEL IS BASED AS FUCK
not really magic just fucks dude up hard
Because I'm a flaming faggot, I spent the rest of my turns having Ethlin healing people.
Azel. Fucker didn't even level up from it.
OH BY THE WAY SNAKE LEFT WITH AIDEEN
>Sigurd become a fucking HOLY KNIGHT in the PROLOGUE
Christ, this is where most lords get their class change. What a hunk.
I've been told that before.
FFT started off with a top tier story and after part one it fell apart to ABSOLUTE shit. In part two and beyond they pulled out all the fucking cliches you could possibly imagine. It's a shame too, because I thought it was going to turn out damn well too. It doesn't help that it was broken as fuck either. Makes it a bottom of the barrel SRPG despite the label it's attached to.
So, the king came into power, stopped all the barbarians from fucking up the border, and then ordered his sons to invade Grandbell years later.
What a dick.
I know how to, but the ones I've made from recording vidya footage have all come out shitty. I can give it a shot.
Hero Lance is awesome, but it's not a Prf weapon or anything. Lot's of people give it to the Peg Knight.
Not me though, I like keeping gifted weapons with the giftee
It's a Hero/Brave Lance is a Prf in FE5 though, and it's one reason he's pretty based in that game.
Okay, I didn't get a chance to preview this, but let's see how it came out...
>playing Thracia 776
>Leif finally promotes after having done nothing
>fuck-all promotion bonuses
>ram a billion fucking scrolls up his ass
>just as he's catching up with the rest of the A-team, he finally gets another exclusive sword
>it's not an exclusive sword
>Ced/Sety shows up and just fucking shits all over everything with Forseti
>final boss is a fucking joke
At least Roy got an OP sword.
>the game is just not that fun to LP
A LP for someone that doesn't know shit about Fire Emblem, sure, if it's not in-depth.
Some casual run-through where other fans can populate the peanut gallery and OP can do it piece by piece? It can be a ton of fun.
Leif isn't allowed to be good until the end of FE4, because by then he's really, really super good.
SECOND BEST SWORDMASTER IN THE SERIES COMING THROUGH
That one's works well. Now just webm some kickass crits.
Leif is one of the worst lords statwise, but at least he was a more interesting character than Roy. Plus his Prf weapon is pretty sweet with it's magic attack and can be used as free Elixers (in a game where you have to steal most of your healing items, this is a plus).
Roy's really is the Worst Lord when it comes to overall package.
Her cousin Shannan was kidnapped by this dude, so she's gotta fight for him.
Standard myrmidon stuff.
Yeah, Leif was realest nigga tier in FE4. Sure, he was still being overshadowed by the likes of motherfuckers that could use crusader weapons but the dude had flexibility and utility. Also the Light Sword shits out money in Awakening which is the most ballin' legacy ever.
This is Aira.
She has Pursuit, Nihil, and Astra. Nihil negates enemy abilities, and Astra is a skill based % chance to deal five attacks. She is one of the best units in the game.
I have mixed feelings on the new names. I imagine part of that is because I first played through this game in like '06. Trying out the new patch that's being made for this (and pretty much all of the non NES/New Mystery games) is going to be a challenge thanks to old '00s conventions for these games...
Also, this is the map.
The astute may notice that it's the exact same as continental map.
Yes, the map of the second level is a continental campaign.
Shit, I love this game.
More like a national compaign, but awesome all the same. It's interesting how in FE5 they contrast it by having the entire game take place in two nations. Very different vibe for the same world and mythos.
More games should do that sort of thing.
Moving units across the map, making sure the right people are visiting the villages and that certain pairs are joined at the hip. There's gonna be stretches where OP won't have anything interesting to report on.
Chrom's a Sigurd clone. If you modernize Sigurd's portrait and ditch the poofy '80s 'cut, they'd probably look alike.
How do you even pronounce that?
I really need to raid Pixiv or something. Good Judgral fanart is tough to find in the usual western channels,
Oh, I did the thing with Fin to make him not a sack of shit.
Yeah, someone that comes before Marth. Probably Anri. Anri's probably a Sigurd clone too.
Unless Anri and family are descended from Seliph or something and migrated across the ocean back to the continent of the dragons, and the implication is that Marth & Chrom are descendants of Sigurd & Seliph. I mean, a thousand years is just enough to cut it.
There's some good stuff around
I feel like Aira is held back by being a character in FE4. Even total badasses like her get shot in the knees by not having a mount (especially a horse). the lack of movement in a game where the maps are so huge just magnifies whats seems like a small issue initially. You sometimes have to hold the horsers back if you want the foot soldiers to get any chance of getting kills.
MEANWHILE, ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE HOSTILE ARMY
Hard to argue with full Odo holy blood.
Holy shit I actually just started this game myself. It's overwhelming as fuck god damn.
Lex is my nigga. He can't be stopped. I wish there was some way that other infantry could get around quicker though, Alec and the other cavalier dude kind of blow.
I haven't used Fin much but I've heard he's pretty good
Which characters are top tier? I feel like I'm not spreading my exp out evenly enough, most of it goes to Sigurd and Lex since they can cross the maps and beast through everything
Her children, silly.
Your starting cavaliers are shit. Everybody else has their niche to fill. Look up how pairing works because they game literally does not tell you how inheritance works until the last chapter.
And here we have two of the worst units so far.
Dew is a thief. With 3 strength and mediocre growths. However, he comes with Sol, allowing him to heal for the damage he deals, Bargain, which halves gold costs for repairing, and Steal, which... steals.
Aideen has very good stats for her level.
But she has no skills. Nothing. Minor holy blood, but that's it. She's mostly dead weight.
Fuck him and his taunting high growths for a 1st gen unit. He's just too weak to get properly started so I never bother. I hear those same growths makes him a good father for some kids though. I never tried it myself
Eh, Aideen's job is to be a staffbot and she does it well. Of course, Ethlin can defend herself, and can even heal and run thanks to her horse so she's a better combat mage than Aideen will ever be.
Can't wait for this motherfucker and and his son.
Wrong dude, although the lack of turban made me think it was Arthur too.
Holy hell Aira does have the most powerful womb in this game. I always paired her with Lex, the kids would be Gods by the first mission in the 2nd generation.
Like it really mattered, all the other kids when paired up properly break the 2nd half
God speed op, I absolutely love this game.
Raro achar um br com tanto bom gosto pra jogo
Naw nigga, check the pixiv tag, that's Arthur.
This shoulder position is boner inducing
Man, I can't choose between Levin, Sigurd and Lex for my favorite gen 1
He's just doing the only thing knights are good for in this game.
Tiltyu is such a qtpi.
I was honestly bummed out when I learned about her fate in the timeskip
We're still on Chapter 1, right? Arden's not gonna be doing anything except maybe dick around in the arena until a certain event in Chapter 2, if OP's so inclined.
And then afterwards he'll just be watching the castle as usual.
MEANWHILE, SLIGHTLY WEST OF EVANS
WE HAVE A FUCKING PROBLEM
Wow... no, Frankenstein is totally capable of holding the fort on his own.
I'm not worried.
But Eltshan is coming to help!
Eltshan may have shitty stats for his level, but his sword is ballin' out of control. It also grants criticals.
Also, I seem to have fucked up on the trimming of the video. Whoops.
