I'm hoping Engage provides a bunch of /u/ content, and is actually good. Hopefully we get something near the level of Edeleth. Speaking of,

I LOVE EDELGARD!!!!!
>>
After much deliberation I have come to the realisation that None of the new pairings are going to scratch Edeleth and it was lightning it a bottle
>>
>>3875151
That's not even yuri.
>>
>>3875279
Probably because Edeleth has the whole school time segment that really provides a good built-up to it in the long run and you can even make an argument that Edelgard really wants to jump Byleth's bones in all routes. I find it much worse that Engage doesn't even really feature great side couples like Three Houses did.
>>
>>3875287
That's kinda the point, there is yuri with boobie Rika.
>>
everyone in FEE is just a lot less interesting overall and the censorship won't help either
>>
>>3875279
Edelgard's romance only interesting point is that she was the empress and it ultimately fucks up the ending because she's like "uhhh after I'm done finding a heir I'll join you in a secret mansion no one knows about I guess". God knows what the fuck is wrong with you people for enjoying it that much, besides the fact that it got ridiculous amount of undeserved fanart for being the first time fire emblem openly let something like that happen.
>>
>>3875332
Fates is still the first time, like it or not. But yes, a big part of it is that Edelgard is a main lord
>>
>>3875333
>fates is the first time
>a big part of it is that Edelgard is a main lord
uh, yeah? Glad we agree. It was like showing off on yaoi fans and so on because we got a privileged seat for once, but the actual ending was a massive downer. As the other anon pointed out, our actual loss is the other paired endings, but Alear is way better off than Byleth.

I'm surprised that we didn't get more art of the furry octopus bitches from splatoon 3.

That's a classic alright. Never mind that the ending is the two of them together their entire lives changing the continent and not Byleth fucking off to some random cottage for years on end
>>
>>3875332
Byleth doesn't even have dialogue so the idea that the ship can be more interesting than any Alear ship is ridiculous. Edeleth is only carried by fanart.
>>
>>3875334
Eh, Alear is pretty middling as a main character. They lost the ability to write decent MCs once they decided that player avatars need to be integral to the plot.

>>3875342
Man, Engage must be really bad if the shills are already out in full force needing to shittalk the previous title which pretty much owned the fandom.
>>
>>3875332
Yeah a steady supply of Edeleth flavoured food from release until now is because it was actually bad and it was simply novelty
>>
>>3875348
You got it. Let's pretend Tharja and the sort also were good and not just novelty.
>>
>>3875348
90% of what carries fanart is character designs, not personalities.
>>
>>3875350
Tharja has far more artwork of her getting dicked, so it was clearly a huge flavor for both sides.
>>
>>3875352
Then best don't hope for too much, because Engage had probably some of the worst designs in the franchise even outside of Alear.

I didn't think they could make a game with worse writing and more forgettable characters than Fates but damn, Nintendo never fails to disappoint. Also somehow managed to make Engage less aesthetically pleasing than a 3DS game with its generic run of the mill artstyle, clumsy presentation, zero atmosphere and cutscenes that look like they were done in Koikatsu. To top it off they let you savescum so it's like you're playing in Phoenix mode by default and it makes the whole experience a joke that you deliberately have to gimp yourself in order to be able lose in the first place. Who the hell is this game for? Did they get rid of their entire staff from the previous game? It's so fucking unrecognizable.
>>
>>3875362
If you play on maddening you can't do mid-battle saves and the RNG for engaging enemies is locked in at some point before the engagement so you can't just rewind time until you hit or dodge a specific enemy.

Actually nevermind, it's worse than that. Phoenix mode prevents death, savescumming prevents that AND lets you control other things like bad levelups and missed items without having to reset the whole map from the beginning.

"Significant other" is a bit of stretch there, in English that's unambiguously a romantic partner but in Japanese it's just "a person precious to me" which is as broad and vague as it sounds

Is there seriously nothing yet? I didn't even play the game yet but after looking through the artbook, I can't imagine liking any of the female characters, especially if they're not as interesting as 3H characters as some say. A lot of them have the same face too, like not joking.

I wanna replay Awakening and Fates again, I liked the designs in those games.
>>
The art style is generic anime 3D game but honestly the models are really good, there are a lot of moments I find myself thinking how cute they are. It's just that the story is not as interesting as 3H and we don't spend as much time getting to know the characters
>>
I remember reading that they wanted the social parts to be less important in engage than previous titles. Could be bullshit some anon made up but with the way the game is I could totally believe it, they tried way harder to endear you to Byleth's students than the Engage cast.
I wouldn't be surprised if they were lax because they have old favourites from Marth up to Edelgard returning as ring ghosts

Does my girl Florina get any justice in Engage?
>>
>>
I don't hate the characters, but there's too many and none of them are fleshed out.
Every character in 3H being the Lord or Lady of a House is free backstory and story relevance. Being a retainer is also the cheapest way to add characters. Even PoR and RD which had tons of characters at least made their characters have actual real jobs and not just come packaged with a noble.
>>
>>3875429
Not Florina, but I think if you give the yurifag armor knight Eirika's ring, they will eventually have a conversation where Eirika mentions Tana and he assumes they were fucking. I have a feeling he might have a similiar conversation with Lyn about florina.
>>
File deleted.
I quite like Etie and Yunaka's support chain. Granted I've only seen up to B. C has Etie feel up Yunaka as if she's stolen something. B has Etie admit she was just feeling her up because she admired her physique, followed by Yunaka saying she admires Etie's physique. Also helps that they're the 2 best girls

Feels a bit wrong that we have to turn the game to retarded hard to just get a classic FE experience.

>social parts to be less important

See they can say that, but that's not an excuse.
The underlying systems are identical, using the support system that's been in place since Awakening so a player playing conventionally will be unlocking support conversations at a decent clip the same way you could get 2-3 new convos after a major chapter in Awakening or Three Houses. There's lots of random crap happening in the Somniel as the monastery, it's just that the somniel is maybe just twice the size of the 3 Hopes base camp rather than the gigantic sprawling school of Three Houses.

There's as much social shit in the game as other modern FEs and it's just a half-assed deflection from the weak story and characters.

And there's nothing wrong with being wacky. Awakening would not have done so well if the cast wasn't as vibrant as it was. Nobody gives a shit about Gregor in Japan because he's just the old ronin archetype, but turn him into Heavy and everybody's all about GREGOR TIME, or giving Henry an ironic edge to him also definitely boosted his appeal out in the west.

And I'm using Awakening as the primary example mostly because it did the whole "hey here's some old FEs" like Engage.
But also because Engage's opening beats parallel Awakening deliberately.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HqUPQ5D5l3M
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kJ5EQcLJ9C4
Complete with the in medias res fight and then the opening with the zombie monsters, although with far less gravitas.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sJG3EQYeWrc

Engage is just boring and every gameplay session I'm left wondering if it's even worth the 30-50 hours investment.
>>
>>
>>3875755
It really doesn't help that the potential romance options are all lackluster design wise.
>>
>>3875755
The big difference to Awakening is that the entire "here's some old FEs" was way more optional and only Tiki was really the only in your face thing that was actually part of the story (and otherwise only really was about the distant future of OG FE and Gaiden), meanwhile Engage features that shit front and center across the entire franchise.

I watched all the FemC support and some romance and friendship choices are baffling.
Merrin = friendship
Celine = friendship
Jade = friendship
Veyle (yes sibbling) = friendship
Lapis = friendship
Flamme = romance? lol

Looks like a lot of female characters got the friendship route and it is a shame, because I really like the others, but there is no reason to exclude the above female characters.

>>3876003
This series is pretty lackluster in the fanart content and I suspect because the supports feel shallow. Oddly enough, I like the MC design, but this game seems to pander towards a group of femmine-male fans and odd rejection of female non-romance supports (V

I'mma be real with you, boss, of all the FE yuri artists I've paid attention to since the 3DS era, I've only seen maybe 3 actually say they've bought the game, slightly more have acknowledged the game at all and are mostly shrugging at it, and a handful are outright expressing disinterest.
Some have a token screencap of Emblem Edelgard.
Most have moved onto other games, or seasonal anime, or still doing Edeleth.

I would just cut the losses and move on, there'll be other Fire Emblems. Chew through your backlog. And the big spring release rush is starting up soon too anyway. Lot of vidya to play.

On the bright side, the game being jabbed for weak supports and characters means we'll probably get Edelgard 2.0 in the next Fire Emblem, much like Dimitri is just Chrom minus a good social support group. That'll be fun.
>>
Personally I'm having a blast with Engage. The writing just feels like a return to fateswakening except in a fanservice game so it fits way better.
Being able to progress male/female supports without having sudden het romance forced in my face in A ranks is making it a much more pleasant experience in that regard too, not to mention Alear being voiced and able to romance every(?) girl down the road.

It's nice that they made another fire emblem where the main character actually has a personality, which is more than I can say for SOME OTHER protagonists from previous fire emblems.

>where the main character actually has a personality
Whenever a FE main character has a personality, they’re basically just like all the others. The thing is, one should not view Byleth as the main character, but the lords instead. To me, Byleth is more of a playable Mark, with a bit more story involvement.
>>
>>3877350
NTA, but that's exactly what I dislike about Byleth pairings, yuri should be girl x girl, not girl x brick wall.
Even a bland, generic character is preferable to a non-character as far as I'm concerned, watching everyone seemingly speak to themselves when addressing her was really off-putting, and all the constant praise being lavished on her for just standing there felt like self-insert pandering.

I’m assuming you’re ESL.

But blank player characters are not actually blank. Their actions in the story and interactions with the rest of the cast still matter and are what define them, just like any other normal character. Any fan not living in a third would country would see a Byleth that chose Edelgard as a very different character than a Byleth that sided with Dimitri for example, and that also carries over into fanworks like art and fics.

this, plus most fandoms use what they glean from those interactions to build an agreed upon personality for silent protags. A lot of Edeleth art/fics have a common personality for Byleth, which makes them easier to enjoy.
>>
>>3877695
nta but that's just fandom making headcanons it doesn't mean blank player characters aren't specifically crafted that way to be as self insertable as possible. i don't even dislike silent protags and think they work great depending on the game but pretending there isn't a huge difference between them and characters with proper thoughts and dialog is a bit silly. like especially if you're looking at characters through a /u/ lens it's normal some people wouldn't be into ships where one half needs a lot of filling in the blanks instead of actual canon content. different strokes etc
>>
>>3877387
Yeah, silent protagonists are garbage. It's always dumb whenever they make one of those RPGs where your party members are constantly talking to each other and then the main character just sits there saying nothing the entire time.
>>
>>3877765
>headcanon
It’s headcanon that Byleth chose Edelgard in her route? Is there a learning disability at work here or what’s the deal, why would you say something this wrong intentionally.
>>
>>3877789
>a Byleth that chose Edelgard as a very different character than a Byleth that sided with Dimitri for example, and that also carries over into fanworks like art and fics.
this requires a lot of headcanoning yes
>>
>>3877786
>It's always dumb whenever they make one of those RPGs where your party members are constantly talking to each other and then the main character just sits there saying nothing the entire time.
Byleth does say stuff all the time. We just don't hear it, but we get the choice of dialogue options. They're not actually silent like some other "silent" protagonists. Therefore Byleth can and does have a personality through those dialogue choices.
Even if, granted, it isn't much. But thats the same for Alear too.

Alear is pretty much Byleth but with voice acting. She doesn't exactly have the deepest personality either. In some cases I actually prefer silent protagonists, at least then I don't have to listen/read some of the brainrot that Corrin suffers for example.

In regards to the pairing situations:

FByleth had access to 3 real pairing options outside of meme picks like Rhea and Sothis. Edelgard was set up to be the love interest on Crimson Flower by the story itself.

FAlear is spoiled for choice and has access to any of the girls without any of the main story interference except potentially Ivy and Veyle, so people are still deciding what pairing they like most.

The thing that hurts Engage the most is the lack of paired endings for other characters which removes a lot of the "fun" of the support shipping system.

Personally I think the purely protagonist-centric sexuality is a step back from the actual lesbian characters we had in 3H.
Its understandable with main choices like Ivy and Veyle but among the rest it would have been nice.

Ivy will probably be the most popular since it isn't as morally questionable as the other choice but I'm sure a lot of sisterfuckers or magic baby fans will take a liking to Veyle. She's the only one with the PC's lifespan.

I was going through the old 3H folder just for kicks. Why save thousands of images if you'd never look at them again? It's the stuff with timestamps older than 3H itself that caught my eye, like this one drawn and posted months before the game came out, not too long after female Byleth was first revealed.

A month before the game came out, or rather a few weeks before the game leaked early. That massive flurry of images from when the game leaked, and of course, the fact that Edelgard was a yuri option.

It's like a time capsule, it's environmental storytelling in the digital space. Embers of hope, smoldering and then igniting a brighter future.

I know right. And there was a lesbian in it too. At least those games were kind of a bore in general.

Louis's bond convos with the rings are great. Him being convinced Lucina should have a yuri harem had me smiling.

I got so disappointed with Engage that I decided to check out GBA romhacks. Their creators aren't really interested in romances but at least the side cast gets paired endings. Even if they're subtext at best, it's still something.
Also Sacred Echoes, SoV demake has a gay OC with a gay paired ending with Silque.

I think the Engage hate is overblown. Storywise it's not much different from GBA/(3)DS era games. Gameplay wise Lunatic is the most fun I've had since New Mystery because it's so player phase focused. And character-wise there are a lot of cute girls with interesting personalities, it's just that you have to get into supports to learn more about them like the olden days, since they aren't front and center in the story like 3H.

I told you so back then. But nobody wanted to believe me.

I'll throw in another positive opinion and say I'm having a ton of fun with Engage. 50 hours in and I'm still hooked.
If someone wanted more of the complexity of the characters and world building 3H had I get why it wouldn't be their thing but people who liked the older games will appreciate the gameplay and goofy fanservice and for people who liked fates/awakening it's definitely most similar to that in tone, especially the supports. The game's sense of humor is very funny and charming.
In terms of the /u/ front I think both Ivy/Alear and Alear/Veyle are really cute and there are still appealing dynamics among the non MC cast too, although admittedly I haven't come across any that come off as strongly as those two yet.

It really comes down to personal opinion, but this is /u/ and not /v/ so we're not really meant to talk about the game itself and doing so brings up pointless and irrelevant discussion. I was disappointed because the FE franchise had been on a consistent upward progression of more and more gay content which peaked in 3H. I have not finished Engage so I can't really speak as to how much /u/ content it has.

With that said, I do also think that the relationships between the female characters are a big step down from 3H. These shorter, more shallow support conversations are disappointing. I really enjoyed the relationships between the women of Fódlan, even when they weren't romantic. I'm not sure what brought them to the decision of walking back towards supports that are unmemorable and don't really mean anything.

there's just not a lot of yuri made and any solo pics get deleted

I've yet to find a good Alear support she falls into all the typical traps of being a self insert protag
>>
>>3879849
I wouldn't say any of her supports by themselves have been particularly standout but Ivy and Veyle have the bonus of interacting with her in main story too and then that tying into their supports.

That is quite literally what I don’t like. This whole "hey let's summon old heroes" gimmick feels to meta. Like they couldn't make a setting that's simply just separate.

>pact to not post

If it existed, we'd post it. You're perfectly welcome to find more, or convince someone to make more like the commissioned art you just posted. Join the ranks of that guy that's paying people to draw Hooters Lucina or that dude that commissions every artist under the sun to draw random girls from everything have sex with that white-haired girl from RWBY. Despite what other threads may believe you can't just manifest yuri into existence spontaneously through collective psychic willpower.

And this isn't 2005, most of us aren't so desperate that we'll resort to desperately keeping the thread from page 10 by posting random samples from boorus that are just two girls from the game posing naked next to each other and looking into the camera or something.

Not that the Nintendo thread has ever been in danger of dropping off the catalog due to inactivity in years, anyway.

Finally, someone with good fucking taste.

I mean, this is an anniversary fanservice game so it's kind of the point.

I miss the times when Fire Emblem wasn't some goddamn multiverse shit.
>>
>>3879871
This, and that Fire Emblem can't go more than a few games without doing it.
We had Awakening a decade ago, Fates, Three Houses, surprise we're doing an Awakening with all the old characters again, even though most of you don't give a shit about anything before the 3DS anyway.
It's not like the franchise was in poor shape anyway, Three Houses and 3 Hopes' success should've given them carte blanche to do anything they wanted.

It was tolerable for Awakening to be drenched in callbacks and fanservice because we were genuinely worried that we wouldn't be getting any more FE and that it would be the last hurrah. Centering a game around "hey, remember the older games" at a time when the franchise is doing quite well and doesn't need to keep hitting nostalgia buttons to succeed (especially given that the first six titles aren't terribly nostalgic for the international audience) is just grating.

This isn't Super Robot Wars where the crossover fanservice is explicitly the point; it's reasonable to expect a Fire Emblem title to stand on its own.

Aren't they Mizuki and Lillie?

damn, barely look like em. why is mizuki a buff amazoness?

It's a timeskip, according to the source post.

>>3879913
I like older MizuLili but I don't really buy into Mizuki being that much taller, if taller at all, than Lillie as an adult.

Well there's the chance of us getting more remakes so that factors into why they'd want to do it too, although I agree I prefer getting games unconnected to past entries so I'm with you there.
Engage is still fun for what it is though, and since it was reportedly finished over a year ago and conceptualized before 3H came out I wouldn't take it as a sign to worry about how the series will progress from here on for people who thought 3H was a step in the right direction.
