Also, I swear to god, the game changed the True-Hit formula to make it so that any roll meant to calculate whether a positive outcome for the player will occur now requires both rolls to succeed instead of just one (though enemies get to keep the old True-Hit formula just to further bullshit players).
I think I read that Fates doesn't use True-Hit formula. I don't know how accurate it is, but I read it is just a single roll instead of two (so just Hit formula?). So, if true, that makes it a bit more swingy at the extremes.

Whelp, I finished the Support Log in Fire Emblem Fates. I'm so happy since this means I can finally move on! I'm thinking I am going to play some Hyrule Warriors Legends next, although I don't know how far I'll get before running out of steam on that.

And I would LOVE to "finish all missions" of course, but 1) some of them require a ton of work, like 'Get 130,000 credits from one FrontierNav hit'.  I don't want to screw around with FrontierNav that much.  Also, how do I even know where to go to get all the missions?  If I look up a list of Normal Missions online, I'm just going to spend an hour looking through all my completed missions to see if I have already done it or not.  Really don't want to do that.  And I don't want to grind for Ares 90 either, which is basically required if I'm going to take down Telethia.
Just check your map. Every normal mission completes a hex on the map. If you get all of the frontiernav points, you should be able to tell which hexes have unfinished quests and you should be able to look up which normal missions are associated with those hexes.

Re: Yelv, there are some COOOOOOL theories out there about him, and even how he may relate to Cross.  Some of the "Who is Cross?" theories are really really neat.  I am trying NOT to expect a sequel to this game, though, because I have a feeling that we may just be disappointed.
Well I don't think there is supposed to be any sort of connection regarding origins of Yelv and Cross. I mean...
Code:
Yelv is an artificial personality applied to a mass produced Mim. Cross likely is either a blank Mim forced awaken or someone who had their memories deleted before the planet did whatever it did to save everyone. I'm sure there are other possibilities, but if there is no sequel we really won't ever learn.

P.S. Hope is my waifu. I can't resist her kindness and helpful spirit.
Hope is the one I would be most physically attracted to in reality, but I just enjoy Alexa's personality a lot more.

Meanwhile, I'm a member of the Elma fan club. She was the only one in that cutscene that wasn't an idiot, even if she did spend way too much time withholding information. Plus it helps to know what she actually looks like (can any of your waifus make that claim?).
Welll...
Code:
Yes because there is presumably no way to transfer mims to physical bodies at the moment, so everyone who isn't Elma is basically stuck with their current body as their real body.

I can't be the only one who picked Murderess as waifu, can I?  There might be something psychologically wrong with me, if I'm honest.  I seem to have a thing for cold, manipulative sociopaths. 
I'm sure you are not the only one, but Alexa is the proper waifu choice in this game. :p

Thirdly, I'm on to the Affinity Missions now.  Already finished up all of the Affinity Missions for Celica, Lao, Irina, Lin, Gwin, Hope, Alexa, Doug, Yelv, and my beloved Murderess.  Yelv I literally just finished today on my lunch break.
Finish all missions! There is some great lore hidden in some of them. Especially the one where you have to beat the Telethia for the "best" ending...actually has anyone else gotten that ending to that quest?

If any of you have seen the final scenes of Yelv's last Affinity Mission, what did you think of that craziness!?
It was an interesting ending. Since Yelv was originally a DLC character, I didn't think too much about it since I was pretty sure it wasn't going to be touched again, but I look forward to it being addressed in the (hopefully inevitable) sequel.

She also seems to be wielding an invisible Lance.
She isn't, she is just equipped with no weapon

In cases like that, the character is usually given an appropriate Bronze weapon to hold.
Not in Fates (or Awakening?). If a character is unequipped, they show no weapon. Unequipping weapons is the easiest way to get a good look at a character's model without movement and the only way to get a view of the fox or wolf classes untransformed for more than a few seconds.

Watched the finale of Iron Blooded Orphans yesterday. I am amazed, but not for any good reason...

Code:
That was an incredible tonal disconnect. They didn't just pull the fake out card for one of the three characters who appeared to die in the previous episode, oh no all three of them are alive. The only thing this did was turn Ein into a complete an total joke (although I suppose that is more in character with his depiction throughout the rest of the series). The episode was fine on its own, but it just did not fit with the semi-bleak tone of the rest of the series. Also it really did not set up anything for the second season beyond McGills having some grand master plan that we still don't know anything about. I have zero idea of what the second season is about and that kind of makes it hard to have any hype for it. I'll probably watch it if I remember it exists when it comes out, but I'm kind of meh on the idea right now.

So I discovered a hilarious glitch in Fire Emblem Fates yesterday. There is a boss in Birthright named Daniela who can be captured by Orochi. Her starting class is Tactician. The only class she can change into is maid unless you use a DLC seal on her. Now here is the fun part, apparently her horse from her Tactician class has something set up weird because when you make her a Dark Flacon, well this happens:



Apparently her horse overrides the default winged horse for the class and it was missed during testing since she normally can't change to another class. End result flying horse.

But seriously, I just feel we're reaching that point where completing the pokedex has become an impossible task and I'm not sure I can remember all the pokemon anymore.
Eh it is still possible to complete the pokedex...minus event pokemon. Some of the event pokemon are unlikely to be found through legit means. Like Genesect, he was last given away in 2013...in Japan. Last (ajnd only) time he was given out in the USA was in 2012 (although it looks like he is scheduled for an event in November). But non-event exclusives can be generally acquired without too much issue thanks to breeding and the global trade network.

Watched episode 24 of Iron Blooded Orphans. I was expecting a blood bath, but there was one character that (probably) died that I was not expecting. I'm sure episode 25 will have some deaths as well, but I have to wait another week till it is up on CrunchyRoll.

Link's Awakening DLC Character is Marin. No idea if her weapon was revealed or not. Find it a slightly odd choice, but then who else from LA are you going to use? (You know, besides the list of suggestions Aeolus posted on the previous page... oops.)

Actually, now that I think about Aelous' list a bit more, if Nintendo wanted to do things right then the DLC *weapon* should be Bow Wow.
But Bow Wow is already a weapon in the game...

Edit: Also really glad that they are going with red head Marin. Her Smash trophies have her a blonde and she really doesn't look as good. *prepares to be disappointed when she ends up not looking like the artwork*

Somebody blew their April Fools load a week early....

Then again, they did announce that Jack is back, so who knows, they may go for the hat trick and announce a return of Big O and/or Megas XLR.
God damn I want some more Megas XLR. Or hell, at this point I'd just settle for a DVD release. Actually... *checks Amazon* Nope still no DVD release. >.>

If the 'leaked' photos of thr NX controller are real it looks like an ergonomic nightmare.

Let us all pray that they're not.

For reference: http://gematsu.com/2016/03/rumor-nintendo-nx-controller-images-leaked

Mother of god....

Chances are there's going to be an ergonomic shell for the final version, but it seems like Nintendo's finally resorting to swiping tech from the competition. Hopefully, the Wii U gamepad is compatible as is the Pro Controller (and maybe the Wiimotes?).

Admittedly, seeing a controller try to unify the Sticks/Face Buttons/D-Pad onto two nubs is interesting to say the least. Here's hoping it works better in practice than it does on paper, because it sure as hell doesn't look like it.
Oh gods that thing gives me nightmares. I can't tell the scale for sure, but I'm pretty sure my massive hands will have to be holding it like I am praying due to how small it is. Ugh...

I see the fire emblem games really bring out the shipper in people. lol
Thing is in Awakening and Fates, you get children units when you hook up first gen units, so you have to ship characters in game if you want to get all the units. And then you have to be choosey about the second parent of each children units in order to min max them into a race of super beings! Or just pair up units you like...I guess either one works.

I'm still unsure as to what to do with this series, one because I have other games I'm playing right now, two because I already played Dynasty Warriors, and three because I'm not sure whether I'd want the 3DS version or Wii U version, all things considered.

So mostly I just settle for watching this incredible GMV over and over.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3xcDGFy9KrM

I think because I legitimately enjoyed Dynasty Warriors I may just get to at some point... still wouldn't solve the system issue, my understanding is that you get the most benefit if you get both the 3DS and Wii U version (and then link them or something)


Hyrule Warriors is a very well made Dynasty Warriors game (I'd probably easily put it in the top 3 and I am having a hard time thinking of better ones), so if you enjoy Dynasty Warriors you should enjoy it.

As for version, 3DS is a better value per character as it includes all the characters from the WiiU version including DLC characters plus some new ones. You can get all the new ones in the WiiU version if you buy the 3DS version as it includes a DLC code for the new ones, but I don't think there will be a stand alone version of that DLC (although you will probably be able to ebay the code). Additionally, I do not know if the 3DS version includes everything from the WiiU version.

I think the best way to look at it is probably 3DS=more content per dollar, WiiU=larger screen (and possibly better playing experience as a result).
