I might try to actually beat RD this weekend. Now that I brought it up, it's kinda bugging me lol.
Nah, not SF, I meant here. In #zelda (surprise surprise )
You know what would've been awesome? Avatar support with Lyn. Like, maybe if you choose "yes" to her question when you recruit her, the supports would be about their previous journeys or something, I dunno. Or if you said "no" when you recruited her, the supports would be different.
Hard mode really isnt terribly hard. Its not crushing any balls. You may see more mastery skills on late game enemies and the first chapters being a bit of a pain in the ass, but nothing that will make you rage. Thats what Lunatic is for! lol!
I would rate Awakening's Hard mode as being similar to RD's Normal mode in terms of annoyance factor. (or more like FE8's Hard Mode)
I like having fun with a game, hence why i dont usually hard mode it up. Sometimes hard modes are just not too fun. Awakening's is good though even for Classic mode.
Casual mode allows me to not worry too much about a unit getting smacked. I still freak out if they get owned though. But it also allows me to keep awesome level ups that happen even if a unit get iced.
However, Normal Casual is like...ehhhhhh. Too damn easy!
Oh really? I think the only FE game I finished in hard mode was Sacred Stones. I think I was on a hard mode run in FE7, but I stopped. Speaking of never finishing something, I never beat RD. I'm on the very last part of the last chapter, but I don't think I can beat it. Kinda sucks.
I don't think I'll ever try out casual mode, since I really like the challenge that classic mode offers. I like the being all like "oh shoot will this unit survive? Dontdiedontdiedontdiedontdie" because then when you do succeed, it's more satisfying to me. I mean I might give it a try if I ever get really bored.
Support bonuses are applied if a character is next to another character with supports but not Paired Up. But Pair Up allows for those oh so broken stat bonuses.
Yeah if i ever do a Spotpass Character run, it will be normal mode.
One thing i like is that Casual mode is awesome and allows for me to really ♥♥♥♥ around in Hard mode. As a result, i have a really good time with hard mode. You know, its actually the first time i finished a hard mode run in an FE game.
And I agree, the lack of those kinds of supports kinda makes the Spotpass/DLC characters not that useful. I mean, I'd really like to use Roy, Ephraim, Ike, etc., but that wouldn't exactly be a good idea since they can't support. I think IS shouldn't have made it so that the Pair Up/support system is a must. They should've made it so that units being by themselves would be bearable, and have the support bonuses actually be bonuses, nah'm sayin'?
I can understand lack of supports for spotpass guys cuz theres so many of them. But the fact that spotpass guys cant get the bonuses of supported characters really hurts their useablity in some cases. Normal mode isnt a big deal but Hard and up relies a lot of Pair Up and Pair Up without the actual support bonuses just isnt as awesome.
And yeah for the spotpass Paralogue guys, why is only Avatar getting to support with them? Bogus.
Yeah, that's really weird. I don't really get why IS didn't bother making supports that made sense (like Yen'fay and Say'ri). I also wish they made supports for Spotpass/DLC characters. Like, it'd be really cool if you could have Ephraim and Eirika support each other.
Tbh, the Duel battle online thing looks kinda lame :/ I mean, what I find fun in FE is tactics and figuring out which character should go where and what would work, etc. The actual battles come second.
lol, I usually see the orange light come on, but it's always a IRL friend. Too bad even the Duel Battle isn't Spotpass...
And yeah man, time flies when you're playing vidyo gaems, especially FE.
Yeah totes. Maps where you can battle peeps on your friend's list's streetpass teams? That would be brilliant! Its a shame thats now how Duel battle or whatever works. D:
Im all jammin' away at the game and that orange light comes on and im like "wut." and i take a look at the friend's list and its always the Bawksie.
Such a missed opportunity. and im like "fancy that. Hes playing at 1am! loooool
