What am I in for?
I just finished 7 and 8.
>>
Good game.

Do lots of shoving.

Ike is best lord.
>>
>>322643482

Laguz are shit, don't waste exp on them.
>>
A good game.
>>
Best units are Ike, Oscar and Zihark, in that unit. Not saying they're my favorites, but I've beaten this shit 5 times (I was autistic enough to want Ashnard for Skirmish maps, never did make it to 15 times) and these 3 made the game easy-mode every time. Shame the generals are pretty meh in PoR though, they're definitely not Killiam or Oswinning.

Oh gods, forgot about Soren. He died on me a couple times but otherwise he fucking disco'd through the last half of the game getting Adept twice a turn.

subhuman scum
best support system in any of the fire emblems
okay plot that is obviously meant to flow into a sequel the sequels plot is absolutely batshit insane, but it has the best gameplay of a fire emblem
has some of the best prepromotes in any of the fire emblems, and are often much more fun than to use than the growth characters, Stefan is best swordmaster

>>322645665
Don't get me wrong, I love Kieran, I used them both like I do every Kain and Abel, hell I even A-ranked their supports, but fucking Oscar was unkillable in my games.

A great game. PoR is one of my favorite FE's. Great Characters and gameplay all round. Might want to go on Hard if you can as it is a little easy.

Dont kill enemies with Titania early on.

RD is great but everyone agrees that the story is awkward to say the least. Music and general gameplay is fantastic though.

Titania is pretty usable compared to some other pre-promotes. I was able to keep her in my party until end game. She is no Seth though.

The main reason to use Oscar is to double Earth support with Ike. That duo is fucking untouchable.

She's a good unit but she'll still take EXP from units that need it more in the early game. I usually take her weapons and use her to bait over enemies.

I do like genealogy but I think, even tho Rd has a below average story it has the best gameplay of any fe game. The level design + 3 classes and character designs make it my second favorite. I wish they didn't fuck up supports. Genealogy is probably my 3rd favorite, then 7, 8, and awakening. Really tho, I love all the games a lot. Fe is my favorite game series
>>
Path of Radiance has a great story and good gameplay, but it fairly easy, since American/European Hard is the Japanese Normal and we never got the lunatic difficulty mode.

Be sure to play on Hard, because you'll miss out on the true final boss if you play on normal.

I'm sorry, but FE10, however mediocre its storyline is and how gimped the support system is, will always be revered for those godly maps, most notably 3-13.

Now, these are the only answers you need to play FE10. You can never have too much Nephenee and Mia in your Fire Emblem.

A game better than 8, and on par with 7.

PoR+RD (FE10) is a god tier combo that you won't get with 7, though. The only problem is the presence of subhumans.

Because it shows all sides having their ugly faces and personalities. It's not like Beorc are portrayed as well meaning but sick in the head with Laguz being muh precious dindu nuthins that didn't deserve this war I wish I wasn't Beorc ;_;

>>322656135
Some extra pieces of dialogue and stat improvements to some of your characters. Worth doing.

>>322656135
Minor support boosts based off of A ranks from PoR, stat boosts to anyone who got to max level and maxed a stat, weapon rank boosts, coins, and other minor stuff.
>>
>>322656135
Characters who capped any stats will have a +2 to their base in that stat from the start and a fraction of weapon EXP also carries over. Also there's a new thing called Bonds which are passive supports family members and other close characters have. A rank supports in PoR will become a Bond in RD.

>Soren, Sothe, and Jill slowly soften up (with dedicated cutscenes) and stop calling people subhumans
>meanwhile, Valkyria Chronicles just does a 180 on Rosie's personality as soon as they see Darcsen refugees crowded and hungry

The Tellius saga is much better than Valkyria Chronicles in that regard, but it still isn't great. It's almost always a token "race" (if you can call laguz a race) and the relationship is always one way. There's minor discord among the dragons and crows with the other types of laguz, but they all are distrusted by humans.

What I'd like to see in a game is a less polar system similar to our own world. Whites hate blacks, latinos hate whites, blacks hate whites, asians hate blacks, etc. Maybe add in a religious dimension where Christians hate Jews, Muslims hate Jews, Jews exploit Christians, and so forth atop that structure, and don't make it 1:1 aligned with races (ex. the Catholic Church being very involved in Christianizing Latin America to the point that there's now a Latin American pope) and you can do some powder keg shit with it.

Not really, RD isn't the easiest game in the series. It just increases there base stats a little and that is only for characters you fully leveled up.

The only thing RD did wrong was have too many reinforcements and too large of battlefields

Laguz shit started with PoR and Kaga was gone from Fire Emblem after 5. It was a slow and steady degeneration after his departure, moving away from the geopolitics that dominated the first 5 games. Both PoR and RD tried to salvage that but injected furshit into the mix, so it's a mixed blessing.

I'm okay with the rebalancing. I mean I love 4 and 5 and their ridiculous OP skills, but I'm also okay with the nerfs the skills got.
I kinda like the way Awakening handled skill proccing and damage, the problem with it was the every character had bloated stats and every character could get most skills so the nerfs didn't matter when you literally couldn't /not/ proc a skill by late game.

Yeah same.
For a game where they wanted to shove as much as possible into, it sure is weird how many little things they arbitrarily removed.
My guess is that status staves were removed because of the utter lack of real terrain and overall small size of most maps.

Probably, plus laziness in balancing them, as if they were put in theyd probably have #/MAG, and due to how bloated stats are you can already use psychic on a majority of the field in most of awakenings maps.

>>322643482
one of the best FE games. Good writing and story, a lot of cool characters, even if it's hard to really feel attached to any of them with the limited-as-fuck support system.

Gameplay is the same FE stuff as always, it's babby-mode easy if you're a minmaxing faggot, but fun times if you aren't. attack animations suck dicks, but the character designs are good.
>>
>>322662035
>even if it's hard to really feel attached to any of them with the limited-as-fuck support system.
How is it limited? It's much improved since you don't have to have two characters sitting beside each other constantly anymore
>>
>>322662035
IMO the best part about 9's gameplay is the variety. Both 9 and 10 had some great maps, along with BEXP being given for doing extra, unnecessary objectives. It's a shame more games in the series haven't rewarded such exploration of possible completion states.
>>
>>322662283
only 5 convos per character is lame. You get to see one complete relationship, and then get dick-teased 2/3rds of the way through another one.

>>322662632
No, it's an important balance.
Awakening proved how disastrous unlimiting support convos can be for making the game easy as fuck
>>
>>322662632
>You get to see one complete relationship, and then get dick-teased 2/3rds of the way through another one.
That's exactly the same as the previous 3 games though, how the fuck is it limited?
>>
>>322662632
Fucking THIS, the one thing I appreciated about Awakening, unlimited supports. I can finally have the big happy animu swordsman clubhouse I've always wanted in an FE game.
>>
>>322662748
I'd say that's just a problem of making each individual support boost too strong. I want to see all the supports in one playthrough. Hell, maybe just make the first 5 supports count towards bonuses, and the rest extra? that would work.
>>
>>322662632
Except thats by far the better way to do as compared to matchmaking.jpg that older games used and the unlimited supports awakening/fates uses. PoR's style allowed supports to flow as the story progressed, which is they always should have been.
>>
>>322663218
That sounds stupid. You'd be removing lots of the replay value, and the fact that only 5 would count but then the rest wouldn't is just silly.

>>322645327
Ike had a perfect ending. Leaving Tellius to fuck knows where doing what he wants after saving it. Becoming a legend that other worlds know of.

I used both her and soren. Soren is definitely the better mage, but she's a good backup.
>>
>>322663218
That's fine from a gameplay standpoint
but then you still have awakenings problem of like 80% of the support convos being generic because so many people can support with so many other people.
It makes no sense for one guy to A rank a girl, them get married at the epilogue, then him A rank another girl and have them be "just really really close friends"
Basically knowing how shitty ISIS is about everything, I wouldn't trust them with writing out several different scenarios depending on who pairs with who. The way it was in 9 was great, characters grew along with the story.

You're delusional
A solid 4/5s of Awakenings supports were shit and you think because there's a lot it's quality?

I'd argue the worst part of Awakening, the part that makes it stupid-easy; Pair Ups and 2 characters being able to back each other up in any given combat.

>>322663883

gets why quantity means shit, i had forgotten how bland most of awakenings supports were, specially between marriage candidates bar a few. A majority of awakenings supports were nothing but "how was your day, oh btw lets fuck" tier shit. So no, atleast in IS' writings case, quantity is not better.

6/7/8/9 all had a nice chunk of supports that gave tons of backstory and developed what is otherwise a fairly bland cast of characters. Awakening just played on archetypes 90% of the time
>>
>>322663267
PoR's supports would still allow the story to progress as you had to complete x amounts of chapters to build up that support

>>322664301
8 was a mixed bag, it was mostly really good, and even explained why Valter was insane in Cormag's supports with Duessel, but then there's the B support between Natasha and Franz

>>322664715
I can see where you're coming from, still i cant agree with awakenign style supports, unless they get a better writing team or tone the "everyone can support everyone else" shit down. As that's a large part of why awakening's supports were garbage, that and making everyone able to fuck each other.

Removing limitations on it just means everyones best buddies with each other, which is just strange. Specially as above anon said and you have 1 S married girl and then a buncha A girls on the side. Best middle ground is to have each support convo be its own bit of story. But even that aint perfect
>>
>>322665063
The biggest crime to RD is how they fucking butchered supports, especially bad considering you can sort of carry your support rank from PoR over, but it largely amounts to nothing besides ike/soren pairing.
>>
>>322664962
How much you'll like it will probably depend on how you liked previous entries in the series.

Its bland, open maps and [lack of] map objective variety are objectively worse than older entries'. The gameplay is easier than ever with the broken pair-up system, tons of support bonuses, and other changes.

The story is simple and predictable but serviceable. The characters are many and often likeable, but particularly animu-esque and one dimensional. The focus on being able to marry all units and the removal of non-romantic supports (sans the generic ones between siblings and parents/2nd Gen children) was a disappointment for me.

Despite its problems, and preferring the old games massively, I still sunk a ton of time into it to complete the support list. Go ahead and play if you think it looks good.
>>
>>322666379
I think it would have worked better with 8's supports, where they all seem to happen anyway, Amelia's supports with Duessel say she has found a rival (Franz, though he isn't mentioned by name,) to train with. Forde's ending has people finding his paintings etc.

>>322666801
They were meant to have a fully fleshed out A one between certain characters, the full list is somewhere on SF and was fucking huge

Better than PoR, but longwinded.

Overall in terms of Fire Emblem, though, the story is a bit mediocre because it relies on Deus Ex Machina Laguz.

Ike fulfills his revenge against the man who slew his father, as well as the man who puppeted the slayer. I think that's the best moment in RD.

>>322669161

We don't. The best possible scenario is if a Japanese indie or Western indie (excluding Germany or Russia) who was imbued with Real Fire Emblemâ„¢ during their youth spends time to develop a good tactical RPG.

The reason why I exclude Germany and Russia is because their history with tactics games involves garbage shit like King's Bounty, Blackguards, and a host of other tactical games that are boring flat hex grids. Fuck both of those countries, seriously.
>>
>>322668023
>Better than PoR

No

Some developments are good, part 2 and Elincia quelling rebellion was cool, but everything revolving around Micaiah (read: the rest of the game) was awful.
>>
>>322669697
I'd say so.

Whoever you A-ranked Ike with in Path of Radiance will get a few extra lines of dialogue with him in Radiant Dawn at some moments.

>>322669969
Me neither anon, ikexmia coulda been grand too, alas
>>
>>322669759

Micaiah was indeed awful, as was everything with the Brand, but the conclusion of Ike was more than worth it. Ike's wrap-up happens at a time when, mechanically, you have to whittle down your squad to only like 9 people you send into the tower, which makes it double-powerful at a time it really needs to be.

Contrast this with the final fight in Awakening and you can see that even RD comes above that. No matter how derisive you are toward RD, at least it's not Awakening

Playing it again isn't bad, but you won't miss anything really.

There's a support library where you can re-read PoR's supports that you've seen.
A small support increase between characters with A-supports in PoR
Coins for the blacksmith
Stat increases for units at level -/20
>>
>>322670154
Oh yeah I'll agree with that 100%. Awakening left open glaring plot holes like the whole zombie apocalypse thing being all but ignored about 4 chapters in.

But when you compare RD to PoR, PoR just has a much stronger tighter narrative and characters IMHO.
>>
>>322670409
Marth's descendants sure have it nice.
>>
>>322670409
It's not like Aether in awakening was anything special. In Path of Radiance, Ike does some sick spins and a backflip.

In Awakening, they just swing their sword twice for the Sol and Luna succession.

So, yes. I'd say in the same vein it is Aether to use Sol and Luna.
>>
>>322670702
Great that Fates brought back the Aether animation for Ike. Seems like only he does the spin thing(Minus backflip uppercut) while Lucina just does slashes.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RHwkUMfGcZY
>>
>>322670593

PoR was tighter but the conclusion was off, simply because the game was destined to be a cliffhanger (being part of a saga)

but I think that the emotional payoff of the conclusion of RD is enough to sidestep the mediocre Micaiah chapters. And that's something that couldn't've been done in PoR because PoR necessarily had to lead to RD by design.
>>
>>322670702
Aether is exclusive to lords and descendants. Same as rightful king.
In the meta, Priam not having aether is understandable. But lorewise it's a dumb as shit decision and just adds to the confusion.
>>
>>322671028
I agree. But the fact he starts off with Sol and Luna makes me think that for all intents and purposes he DOES have Aether, but maybe he's just shit at it or doesn't know it as Aether.
>>
>>322669161
You don't need to "save" FE because Fates (or at least Nohr route) shows that IS still knows how to make good games. The only problem is that they have a bad sense of priorities that needs fixing and for just once, stop rehashing Marth and his family and just move on for once.

>>322671016
I disagree, Micaiah and plot elements like the blood pact dragged the plot down to an extent the ending couldn't make up for. Furthermore, cramming in every single character from PoR sans the optional Largo in addition to new characters that don't get near enough screen-time both ruined the support system and weakened the story as a whole.

You're just not ever given enough time to fully appreciate the Dawn Brigade until you're whisked off to Crimea and Elincia's part, and then when they eventually return they're swept under the bigger plot elements unfolding like the nauseating blood pact and ensuing war and only Micaiah and to a lesser extent Sothe have any more relevancy.
>>
>>322672042
>That spin jump is just part of his normal moveset, not tied to Aether or anything, so it's hardly any better.

Was this just added in for Fates? I don't remember him spins in PoR/RD other than Aether.

Chrom was oddly and snugly on Robin's dick. It was kind of weird, like he never had a best friend or just a good friend before.
>>
>>322672932
That's just current games in general anon, im sorry. Not even defending fates but atleast that ones being honest about us being the main character rather than awakening starting us off in the partner role, then plot moving us into literal most important person in the plot.

Again, if this is how it has to be, just make it liek 12's at most, personally would like to just be the faceless tactician in 7 who was occasionally brought up. But noone wants the back row like that, gotta be center stage.

Damn, I totally forgot about that. I'm just glad to see the animation again. Better than that half-assed one that Chrom/Lucina pulls.

>>322673272
Chrom was that way cause i think they were too lazy to make M/F main story dialogue, so he was "gender neutral" for most of it, making this awkward middle ground between friend and more than friend/lover.

>>322673778
Definitely some of his lines to Robin had me thinking they were fucking no matter their actual support status or Robin's gender. Why do I feel at some point he calls Robin his soul mate?
>>
>>322672028
Bring her to 99 exp then naturally level.

>>322673778

>>322674113
He did, he had plenty of friends far as i could tell, even if he was "different" from a normal noble. Still, you are the MC, thus you are instantly the closest and most important person in his life.

>>322674318
She's story required for 1 period and she is honestly one of the better units if you take the time to raise her. What that anon means is bring her to 99 exp then save scum the level up, i think.
>>
>>322644826
The best unit is Titania, and by extension all the knights by a country mile.

Generals only suck because they don't have Canto. You pretty much never need sword since Ike has Ragnell and Elincia comes with Amirita.
>>
>>322674318
I forgot that the system was different in both games when I responded. In PoR bonus exp is fine to level with, but in RD when you lvl with bonus exp they get only three stat points. I think it is better to take the chance and get more than three points.
>>
>>322674318
It does in Radiant Dawn at least. Level ups by Bonus EXP always give strictly 3 stats, no more, no less, unless you capped a bunch already. Raising it to 99 and then leveling normally on the next map however still raises stats as normally dictated by growth rates.

I think Path of Radiance doesn't do this though and Bonus EXP is no different from normal leveling.
