Casual for me. I'm not playing my game for anyone else, so i don't care about being a TROO FIRE EMBLEM PLAYAR ZOMG or not. i just want to see the story unfold and enjoy the support conversations, work on getting my doods up and exploring the DLC. And of course, if I change my mind and decide I'd like the added challenge, FE:A gives us the option to tailor it to our tastes. It's a wonderful game in that respect :3

@xBASSxMONSTAx: I know you're excited about being able to play this game before everyone else, but please, you are technically spoiling everyone else. If you could please start marking your posts as spoilers (I'll go back through and mark yours appropriately) if you plan to discuss particulars of the game, I (and those who have been reporting your comments) would greatly appreciate it. Thank you!

I'm afraid no one can know the answer to this question. People can guess all they like, up to and including 'professional analysts', but they're still just that — guesses. How about we check back in a few years, give the gloom and doom some time to pan out or not. :3

Importing an old game and attempting to learn a language that will serve little use in the lives of many people is hardly productive.

Aren't people actually paid to import games and translate them though? If learning the language happened, America would not make money.

I love it when people take Adam honest-to-goodness dead serious. :3

I'm afraid the bottom line is that we just don't know, theworldgamer. You might try contacting Nintendo in your region and asking them to see if they give you a straight answer. Good luck! :3

@Mac: I kinda see them as a visual aid, almost like screenshots or something. a high average on Metacritic will likely have me take closer looks at the reviews, same as pretty screenshots. If the screenshots or score are unflattering or uninteresting, i may pass it up for something else I'm more interested in until I have the time to go back over the reviews and really give the game in question the consideration it's due. i don't bother trying to agree or disagree either unless there's a gigantic storm brewing in a comment thread someplace and I feel the need to toss in my two cents' worth, but even so it's not something i'd bother fighting to the death over like some people do, lol. i've got too much on my plate to get bogged down over something that silly :3

to be absolutely honest, if I had to nail down the thing that would sway me the most to purchase a game I'm kinda on the fence about, hands-down it'd be what my friends are playing and whether they like it. I've been persuaded into buying all kinds of games just because i had nothing else to play at the time and a few of my friends had picked it up and were talking about it, reviews be damned.

to be fair, how many of the people who only read the number at the end of the review would actually be reading every last detail of the review in the if that score wasn't there? there's no way to know for sure; you can lead a horse to water, but you can't force him to read anything you've written. besides, people wanting a 'yes' or 'no' answer would still be asking for recommendations in the comment threads, and the arguments would still wind up happening when users disagree.

Also, Gregor and Nowi: yay or nay?

anyone plus Nowi kinda creeps me out tbh — that's why i paired her with Donny this time around, and I think i'm gonna pair her with Ricken next time. all she really does is play, though, so her supports aren't really out-and-out amusing or anything... i feel it's almost a waste to spend one of your available males on her. Kinda wish she acted more like her daughter. Gregor's as good as anyone else, i guess — and since he's probably the oldest guy in your group, he's probably the closest to her 'true' age anyway.
sorry to anyone who likes and/or married her, 's just how i feel about 'er D:

hey guys. we all miss James, but complimenting and/or praising him at the expense of others doesn't do him justice. just sayin'. :/

I'm going to go ahead and lock this thread now, since it's pretty much an extension of the Favorite User thread (I'm sure you all know where to find it, I've seen most of you post there from time to time). If you really want to keep on in the spirit of what James brought to NL (and still does bring in his occasional comments, he's not dead, you guys), remember that above all he wanted people to just be excellent to one another.

@SkywardLink98: lol everyone tells you to go to bed or whatever if you visit the Barracks, depending on what time of day it is. I think that's Nintendo's answer to the usual 'don't forget to take a break!' interruptions they've been inserting into other games lately — every so often your barracks will light up with a new thing for you to watch on the top screen, and the bottom screen will remind you to take a break or suggest that you may be getting tired after a long session of play.

It's similar to Chrono Trigger in that it deals with time-travel and there are (many) different 'endings' to the game you'll see as you make your way through, but the battle system is different (it's not your average turn-based system) and I think the story is a bit more mature (though both are excellent). You'll understand more after you've gotten through a chapter or two. :3

A score is just an extension of the review itself IMO. it's a quick way for me to gauge whether or not a game is worth looking into at all, or how hard I'll need to read through the reviews in order to make sure it's really the choice for me. It saves me time and hassle regarding the chaff, and if there's a diamond left in the mid-to-high range rough, I'll root it out eventually.

@WingedFish: I think you mean 'admitted', haha :3

So has anyone been paying attention to their barracks? I've been noticing things get added every so often when you pick up a new character, especially if it's one of the kids. I wish you could take a few steps forward and really see the inside of the room, it's hard to see those staves right in front of the window for instance, but i am loving all the little touches they've crammed into this game. so much fun~

Also, I married Cherche and Gaius (d'aww, he takes care of her, how adorable~), and i picked up Kjelle this morning. She's a fun one :3 I'm also working on getting myself up through the Dark Flier ranks, and a few of the other women in my ranks are currently going through the Wyvern Rider/Lord classes to pick up stats and skills.
