Is there a character I'd really like to see in this game...?  Nah.

Nowi are talking!

I am pretty much voting for what my dream team would be.

I don't mind the side-by-side mechanic of the newer games, but I almost never pair up my units. I'm too old fashioned in how I execute my strategy. I use all of my units in battle and rate losing a roster slot to someone acting as a permanent defensive player to cover another character.

I hope the bring back the open world of the first game. It was the one thing missing from the sequel for me.

That is a bit steep for a digital title, or is it getting a physical release?

I am a little sad that we only got an additional 20 seconds of footage of Warriors from the Fire Emblem Direct trailer. I was hoping for a few character confirmations. Though seeing how much effort they have already put into the online game (listings of EVERY character from EVERY game with official English names), I have been reassured that we will have a lot of great and diverse characters in FE Warriors.

Aha! A use for my unlimited tethering!... though I would give that up just to have it all integrated on the console.

You forgot "...". How could you forget such a memorable announcement?

Oh, is that a Snowboarding title? Must have missed that. I'll keep an eye on it.

Maybe they will keep the 3DS around until the next version of the Switch which is a smaller, pocket version.

I want to believe that, but Fire Emblem Warriors will be a dual Switch/3DS release. This makes me think it may be a slower conversion that we anticipated.

Pokemon would certainly help this along, but the most obvious choices for Nintendo seem to be the most difficult.

I will remain optimistic though.

So long as they get it working on the system by the Fall/Holiday season it should not be too much of an issue. If they miss that window it could very well hurt them.

Some people on reddit are hoping this is going to be a series of remakes for the older games under the banner name of "FE Echoes".

I like that they are working to keep all of the old mechanics, but rework them to be more streamlined. There look to be some 3rd-person action oriented segments where you run around the map and fight monsters without a turn meter.

With all of the new announcements, I am wondering if this shouldn't just be the generic thread for Fire Emblem titles. Or do we want have multiple threads?

Don't forget 1080 Snowboarding!

Only disappointment I have is the lack of Fates DLC info, but they more than made up for it with the other announcements.

Excited to play Gaiden, and more Fire Emblem amiibo are always nice.

They should bundle 1-2-Switch with the controller packs to encourage people to pony up for the extra controllers.

It was the only animated film to be nominated for best picture before the creation of the award. Turns out some of my information was outdated so I'll just post this from Wikipedia:

People in the animation industry and fans expressed hope that the prestige from this award and the resulting boost to the box office would encourage the increased production of animated features. Some members and fans have criticized the award, however, saying it is only intended to prevent animated films from having a chance of winning Best Picture. This criticism was particularly prominent at the 81st Academy Awards, in which WALL-E won the award but was not nominated for Best Picture, despite receiving overwhelmingly positive reviews from critics and moviegoers and being generally considered one of the best films of 2008.

This led to controversy over whether the film was deliberately snubbed of the nomination by the Academy. Film critic Peter Travers commented that "If there was ever a time where an animated feature deserved to be nominated for Best Picture, it's WALL-E." However, official Academy Award regulations state that any movie nominated for this category can still be nominated for Best Picture.

In 2009, when the nominee slots for Best Picture were doubled to ten, Up was nominated for both Best Animated Feature and Best Picture at the 82nd Academy Awards, the first film to do so since the creation of the Animated Feature category. This feat was repeated the following year by Toy Story 3.

Ouch, the Switch presentation got you hard, didn't it Soren? Remember, we are your friends, you can talk to us. Don't throw your life away for the bottle!

Khush just broke the first rule of Dupe Club! I am awarding him a 15% discount for the Funhouse Company Store.

Nah, the funhouse was build for these types of shenanigans!

Remember when it was almost (or was) banned to use the word Celda because of the self conscious fanboy rage?

I hold UncleBob's Post Bumps against UncleBob.

Made the best animated picture category. I'm more conspiracy theory-ing it but it felt like they created that category because they didn't want their "grown up shows" getting challenged for best picture.

They robbed any animated picture from getting one of the most prestigious Academy Awards.

Good, it allowed me to walk into my local branch and pre-order a system at 11AM on Friday. No lines, no mess.

If they get TOO successful and popular they will just eliminate the "problem" by creating a new category, like they did with Best Animated Picture. Nothing will ever top Beauty & the Beast because of what they did to separate the "kiddie" material.

Granted, there were some benefits for separating those films, but I still think the motivation was originated through a negative line of thought.

I wonder if it is only in certain markets, I'll check my local stores to be sure. Maybe I can get some nice discounted goods.

Really, I don't see Fred Meyer lasting in the current Supermarket/Box Store landscape. There are cheaper and better places for all of their departments. Albertsons hit some tough times in our region and cloed a bunch of stores.

Winco for groceries, Lowes/Home Depot for yard & garden, Ikea for furniture, GameStop/Frys/Electronic stores for games/movies/technology. And Walmart and Amazon tend to have better prices on everything. The middle stores are really getting pushed to "convenience store/Mom & Pop" status in our current environment.
