@JaxonH delivery. They're saying it'll be here around the 29th. No biggie tho.

What a beautiful signature.

@Ryu_Niiyama I just hope the same sex options are significantly better than in Fates, where my choices were

  • fem: crazy goth girl who wants to be Tharja
  • mal: crazy older guy who likes to inflict pain on others

Lol I dont know what to play untill 26th. Im looking for something in my backlog "not time consuming" maybe ill give captain toad treasure tracker a chance. After 26th its going to be Fire Emblem Full Time untill maybe Astral Chain.

@Venus_Adept Captain Toad is on the shorter side for the most part and is an excellent puzzle game. Earlier levels are on the easier side, but the challenge starts ramping up if you stick with it. That kinda depends on if you're going for all the collectibles too.

@Tyranexx Started it today and quickly get hooked by the charm and simplicity (in the good way) of this game. Im having a blast and is perfect for me to wait untill Fire Emblem. Thanks for recommending it.

@Venus_Adept No prob! I quite enjoyed it on the Wii U. I don't blame Nintendo at all for porting it to the Switch. 😁 It's definitely a charming little gem.

I'm filling my time until the Fire Emblem release with Final Fantasy X-2. It's just the right level of camp to keep me amused haha

Nice preview from Nintendo World Report

And don’t watch this one if you don’t want to be spoiled, but here’s a vid showcasing some characters before/after the time skip.

Been playing Radiant Dawn cause I figure I should finally finish it before Three Houses comes out. I had to start a new game on Easy though, and even then the game can be super frustrating. They made some really baffling design choices in this one, and I would rate it one of the worst games if not for the story being great (and basically the second half of Path of Radiance).

I'm currently in Part III and getting whiplash from bouncing between different armies, which generally suck badly except for the Greil Mercenaries.

The Radiant games had some brutal difficulty. Every map was a test of your skill, and that’s ultimately the reason why I never finished either of them. There was no casual mode so having such a high difficulty meant one mistake cost you a character, which meant restarting.

I love the games though. Both Path of Radiance and Radiant Dawn.

@JaxonH They're definitely tough. I feel like PoR is more manageable, if you know what you're doing (don't archers, do use flyers and cavalry, etc.), but I wouldn't recommend it as anyone's first FE game.

RD betrays your expectations constantly, what with characters coming and going and the terrain of certain maps making units you would normally favor (like cavalry) almost useless. It makes long-term planning very difficult without foreknowledge.

Still, I prefer their old-school style to the nu-Emblem, Awakening-onward era. I like the addition of Casual mode, but I'm less thrilled about the direction the writing and gameplay has taken. Still gonna play Three Houses though!

@BougieBeetle
To be fair, Three Houses seems to be a completely different direction than Awakening and Fates. According to previews and impressions it’s more Game of Thrones than Harry Potter. And the writing and story is apparently top notch in this entry (even being touted as best in the series ever aside from Geneology of the Holy War) and the incredible voice actors really enhance the characters.

The gameplay also seems to have been perfected. Fates balanced a lot of what was wrong with Awakening, but this game has done away with the Rock Paper Scissors weapon triangle in favor of combat arts, added new mechanics like aggro... it just seems like a breakthrough entry for the series, in the best way possible.

@JaxonH All of that information is very heartening to hear! I have to admit that early teasers didn't do much for me, but I've really come around lately. I'm hoping for a classic-series style Fire Emblem continent with lots of interesting political machinations, supported by those cool gameplay updates you mentioned!

Well, naturally, early teasers couldn't really show much, @BougieBeetle ... & I know some were worried when they revealed about being a teacher

@BougieBeetle But I didn't get hype until I read through this forum! I hate not having steady income

I'm now leaning more firmly towards Blue Lions after the most recent trailer popped. Golden Deer isn't bad though.

I'm unfortunately gonna have to leave this entry until sometime after its release. I'm so behind on my SRPGs. XD

Derrick from GameXplain is also talking about the possibilities of Three Houses being one of the best Fire Emblem stories as well.

I don't really care about story as much as the gameplay, which is what I'm gonna be in for, but everyone did a complete 180 for this game for the better lol.

Maybe people need to stop hyping games based on graphics next time :^]

Metroid, Xenoblade, EarthBound shill

I run a YouTube/Twitch channel for fun. Check me out if you want to!

Please let me know before you send me a FC request, thanks.
