Welcome to Survival of the Fittest, a RPing board loosely based off of Koshun Takami's Battle Royale, with its own unique plot and spin on the 'deadly game'. We've been around quite a while, and are now in our thirteenth year, so don't worry about us going anywhere any time soon!

If you're a newcomer and interested in joining, then please make sure you check out the rules. You may also want to read the FAQ, introduce yourself and stop by the chat to meet some of our members. If you're still not quite sure where to start, then we have a great New Member's Guide with a lot of useful information about getting going. Don't hesitate to PM a member of staff (they have purple usernames) if you have any questions about SOTF and how to get started!

Let the games begin!

The Hitman franchise is apparently saved. I am happy.

I have been playing the crap out of Fire Emblem Awakening. :D

My first run was with a male avatar, now I'm playing with a female avatar.

I hope to start on Birthright soon. Also, I'd love to get Echoes (maybe for my birthday). ^_^

Awakening is tons of fun and really good, I haven't finished Birthright but it's not as fun IMO. The writing isn't as strong either. I have Conquest, I dunno how it plays though because I haven't started it.

Man, I just find the 3DS so hard to pick up and play as a console. I have the original model, so that's probably half of it. If anyone could swing that New 3DS XL that'd be cool thanks

I heard that Fates in general doesn't have the best writing, but in terms of gameplay, it's one of the best.

I also heard Conquest is one of the harder games since Radiant Dawn. I haven't played the Gamecube games, so I don't know what to expect.

The advice I always see is to wait until the end of the sale to buy unless it's a flash sale or daily deal, but I dunno if they still do those following some news I've seen so your mileage may vary.

I believe flash sales were discontinued due to the introduction of the refund system a few years back. The result of that is that currently the overall sale tends to be slightly better than the base sale in the past, but a notch or two worse than the best deals. It's worth poking around a bit to see how good the deal is (Cheapshark and many other sites track across platforms and give historical lows) because some devs like to put stuff on an actually-not-that-amazing rate in the main Steam sales now and will have it cheaper at random times throughout the year. I'll do some poking to see if there's anything super great on sale this time, though.

For those who weren't aware, Secret World Legends is free to download and play (the download will take a few hours at minimum though), and it's fun as hell. I hadn't played the original but I'm told the combat is much improved. (I recommend a mouse though, click combat is kind of janky if you're playing on a laptop.)

Got around to starting The Hanged Man. It's really good so far, the atmosphere is nice and creepy and the plot is just confusing enough to keep you going forward to figure it out, like the rest of the games in the series. The version I downloaded does have a text formatting problem where dialogue goes off the screen rather than wrapping in the text box, but that may have been fixed in an update.

Update: got two different bad endings so far but somehow I managed to not die at all.

Gundam Versus comes out today, and I'm hoping it's delivered by the time I get home. There is no G Gundam representation (rip), but it represents my feelings well:

Every time I pick up Megaman Battle Network 4 I think it can't be that bad.

It is. It really is that bad.
