Nintendo Console Discussion / Re: NX Launch Lineup
« on: Today at 12:48:38 PM »
Why you gotta be so hatin'?  ;) 


I think there is room for multiple fighters on Nintendo systems.


Smash would still be the flagship, but we also have Pokken. A Fire Emblem fighter could easily fill a weapons based fighter niche in the vein of Soul Calibur.


It would be similar to juggling multiple racers on the same system. Mario Kart, Excite Truck, Diddy Kong, Need for Speed, F1; plenty of room for multiple fighters as well.


Besides, maybe if we get a dedicated FE fighter Sakurai will stop flooding the Smash roster with extra FE lords.

Super Smash Bros. for NX Featuring Even More Fire Emblem Edition


You joke, but I could see them doing an all-Fire Emblem fighting game down the road.

So I just was given a 500+ firefly crown package by my attacker along with an apology.


So I figure we are all good. I still have my research level and a fair stash of gold so I could be somewhat back on my feet sooner than expected.

Super stoked that this has amiibo and most likely will be coming to the West some time.


I'm going to guess we will get it February/March of next year.

I talked to Malte-Abdul and he set the other guys straight and got them all to agree to help restore my position.


I'll see how fast I can rebuild. I am worried that growth on our part could lead to us getting attacked like this again because we re not part of their house. What are your thoughts on joining house black?

All of my cities were just wiped out because someone got offended I was healing disease in a parish where I had a town.


Not sure what to do now...

I saw your note Perm, but I cannot move for a few more hours. I need to finish researching my next leadership rating.

My wife and I feel that American Dad is the best of the MacFarlane shows. I think it gets the most laughs because more of the jokes do not stand on the backs of pop culture as much as Family Guy.

Word is that it will include amiibo support.


"Clothes, special lollies that unlock new fur colours, and seeds that can be planted in the garden are all purchased using coins, which are earned through playing or by tapping a compatible amiibo figure once a day."

Already joined, make me an officer! ;)


So I got a little carried away with my parish army and got them all killed by Snake Tower. I thought I had enough to take it but it did not go as expected. So I'll be licking my wounds for the next couple of days while I rebuild my army and tax fund.


After that I can help you kill off any wolf packs or bandit camps in your areas to help with your town happiness. I've also got a pretty good personal standing army of about 100, and I could easily double it once I build enough weapons.


Just about to rank up to Marquis. Thinking I'll move into Dunmore in the far east of our county and setup a city or two there.

I went into the negatives on that capture by 200k. I'm just getting back into the positive.

I still would never want to play terraria on a console because of how dependant the game is on your ability to aim and move at the same time to effectively be able to fight... particularly if you're using an attack that's ranged.


Does it support motion controls? Pointer controls would be a great feature for a game like this. But without pointer controls I'll stick to the PC version.


Just answered my question: Players can dig in using either the GamePad, Wii U Pro Controller, or Wii Remote and Nunchuk. You can share highlights of your escapades on Miiverse and compare your progress with other players on a global leaderboard too!

I have some research done in space. I can hold about 450 in each. I have access to all of the goods.


How many troops will I need to take the city?

There is one to the far right of our county with only one small village. But it costs more to setup a village there (~77k). I'm about halfway to that total and I'm also well on my way to getting another city slot so I may dive in there with two cities to get a more firm grip on the territory.

FYI, Taco Bell brought back the Diablo hot sauce. They changed it slightly, darker color and not quite as "Diablo-y" in terms of heat, but still far and away better than any of their other hot sauce packets.

In one of the articles I read yesterday Jamie Alexander was reportedly not in Thor 3 due to a scheduling conflict with another show she was doing. I'm guessing they got that cleared up somehow. Glad for it too, Sif is a fun character and I'm hoping we also see the warriors three.

Sorry, I've been busy in real life so I've been on auto pilot in the game choosing new research and using capped resources. I have some time now so we should determine our next course of action. I took my parish as agreed with the other guy, we'll see if he follows through in agreement or throws another fit.

I'm guessing you are more okay with it in part because you had your expectations lowered before entering the theater, leading you to be pleasantly surprised by it.

I have seen a few free games that pull off a somewhat reasonable balance between microtransactioning you to death and being a fun game.

Stronghold Kingdoms is probably one of the best examples of doing a free MMO right. You either buy perk card packs to help your industry or buy premium coins that allow you to queue up research and build orders. So you pay to not have to constantly sit on the screen micromanaging everything.

Marvel Avengers Alliance 2, Marvel Future Fight, and Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes (surprisingly done by EA) are all fun games that give you plenty to do without charging you an arm and a leg to participate. I was competitive in the top tier of my server for Galaxy of Heroes and I never paid a dime. Granted, they offered bonus packs for the "whales", but they balanced that with generous options for free-to-play folks as well.

If EA can pull off a fun free-to-start app with options for reasonable in-app purchases next other whale packages, I have no doubt that Nintendo can do the same and even excel at it.


It would be cool to see the app be a "Fire Emblem All-Stars" title where you can recruit any heroes from past games. It would also be nice if they brought back the GBA art style and made the entire game sprite-based. It would be less graphics intense on phones and allow them to differentiate the app from the main line FE titles.

It was, but overstock of figures and not meeting their sales expectations caused senior leadership do cut the entire project and close the development studio. 300 people will be out of a job and they were making Disney money, just not enough. And if you read the plans they had for the series there were a lot of cool things coming, including a full-blown crossover story mode and a desegregation of the different worlds (before the game kept Marvel, Star Wars, and Disney level playsets separate due to corporate red-tape).

In terms of look/build quality?


I only recently picked up the 3.0 starter so I just have Anakin and his padawan Ahsoka. Both look great with no defects. If you are a fan of the Clone Wars show it really stays true to their look in the show. Most of the Marvel ones look nice as well (though Iron Man seems a bit bland in coloring).


The Pixar figures look like they were meant to be made into figures and the characters based off of live action human characters look natural as well.


I mostly want them for nostalgic reasons to go on my nostalgia shelf. I only started playing the game last night. Looks like it will be a mix of Minecraft/sandbox style play for the toy box with themed levels that play similar to the recent LEGO titles.


They do have levels for racing and for a fighting game but I have not tried those yet.

Just a heads up that Disney Infinity got cancelled. Retailers are dumping stock with steep discounts. Now is the time to pick them up if you wanted a few Marvel, Star Wars, or Disney figures to go with your amiibo.


I had just picked up a 3.0 starter set last month. I'll probably grab some Marvel figures and other personal favorites. Pity as I felt they were the strongest of all the current Toys-to-life platforms.
