Not sure if this thread is ok but I'm struggling to decide between the following options, trading in Monster Hunter to get Fire Emblem or rrenting Fire Emblem from my LoveFilm. I wasn't sure if FE had the same 'endless' amount of content as Monster Hunter and whether a rental was a safer option, my only issue being I wish to support the game as much as I can. Any info about both games that could help my decision would be much appreciated

If you looking just to see the basic ending of the game and really dont care about the people in the game... Rent the game. i got it off gamefly back in feb and beat it in around 25 hours or so *less if you want to turn one of the uses into a major MAGE and use a spell that regains hit points with every hit - nothing can kill them and they can take out everyone on the map by themself (even the final boss)

monster hunter- rented off gamefly and just could never get into it... did not care for the burred letters (played it around 3 hours and sent it back)

but to your point many have said Monster hunter had a lot more replay then FE unless you want to see all of the different children and buy the DLC...

i did rebuy fire emblem the other day for 20 used off someone just to keep in my collection though and may one day try to replay it

long story short if your looking at just beating the game Rent it... if you want to see all of the children match ups and Downloads buy it

There's a demo on the eShop if you want to try that first. If you like it, I recommend buying the game due to the amount of content in it (DLC, spotpass, etc.)

I found the demo rather brilliant but a rental is probably best, if only as a way to try properly before I buy

You don't have to own everything as soon as it comes out y'know.

It sorta depends. Fire Emblem has different "endings" and allows you to play it at your own pace. IF you'll want to have the most amazing army ever, buy iy. If you just want to play to the end of the story, rent it for a week and rush through it.

My SD Card with the game on it is just as physical as your cartridge with the game on it.
I love Nintendo, that's why I criticize them so harshly.

SkywardLink98 what do you mean different endings. there is what 2 and really dont change much (just the final boss battle right)

You can't rent and properly enjoy this game due to it's massive amount of content. Buy it.

This is kind of misleading, FE has two different endings which ultimately have little difference.

Whether or not you want to buy this game will depend on your philosophy when it comes to playing games in general. It's a game that can be completed fairly easily on normal but there is a ton of content that you can play around with like bonus chapters, dlc, maxing out characters, support conversations, and a whole lot of other things. If you end up like a lot of FE fans you'll end up putting in 60+ hours just playing after beating it. I've put in almost 200 hours myself and that was before the month of april.

@slidecage @theconsonant When I say "endings" I mean when you've really completed the game. Some people stop when the story ends, and others will try to 100% the game. It all depends on what you consider the "end" of the game.
