  1. Personal Impressions

    Now that the game is out internationally, what are your own opinions? Personally, I like it. I think it's a mechanical improvement from HW and even the Fates characters (for the most part) don't annoy me as much as I expected. I do wish Lyn did not get plastered on the marketing so much considering how minor she is in the game, but overall, I enjoy the game immensely. What about you?
  2. Units that you have gotten the most?

    Don't have an exact, but I seem to get a lot of Barsts and Firs...ironic.
  3. What is your unpopular Fire Emblem opinion?

    Well, there's your mistake, I was trying to make a point, not find common ground.
  4. What is your unpopular Fire Emblem opinion?

    ...you thought that was me going at someone's throat? You've been on the internet too long. I was trying to make the point that waifuism is more of an inconvience than anything and not that big of a part of Awakening's gameplay. It's just the part people latch onto. Focusing on that and hating on it saying that's all it is just makes the actual problem worse.
  5. What is your unpopular Fire Emblem opinion?

    Never said you were guilty. Besides, while the waifu stigma may be unpleasant, focusing on that just makes the real problem worse. If anything that is how a bigger fanbase is truly causing problems. The waifu issue is just one step to the true problem. So, you're not wrong, true, but I just don't see that as much of a problem.
  6. What is your unpopular Fire Emblem opinion?

    Really? I find the most stigmatic part of this fanbase to be how much it's at its own throat and incredibly ungrateful. It's an extension of the support system which has been in the series for a long time (admittedly not always very well implemented like in the GBA games or Echoes). The rest of the game is still wholly Fire Emblem, you know, the part you actually play. The mechanic itself can't take much development time, and it was hardly out of place in Awakening.
  7. What is your unpopular Fire Emblem opinion?

    Ahem, I'm just saying that the waifu aspect is not even that big of a part of the game. It may be the big draw for some, but the game is still by and large, Fire Emblem. And, let's be honest, people shipped before Awakening, Awakening just turned it into a mechanic.
  8. What is your unpopular Fire Emblem opinion?

    Heart and gameplay mechanics are not necessarily the same. Something can be mechanically sound with no heart. Besides, I like how unbalanced Awakening is. Feels good to train up gods among men. Guess I'll throw out my own unpopular opinion: I already think Echoes is not aging well despite being so young. It just seems that the more I look back on it, the less fun it was.
  9. I meant more biased toward older Fire Emblem, not Zelda. He's made his disappointment pretty clear to the point I'm not confident in his objectivity. How can you not like this music? Admittedly I've been avoiding major spoilers, but everything I've heard sounds good to great.
  10. Grand Hero Battle Arvis

    Managed to one turn Lunatic with Brave Lyn, Titania, Camus, and PA Olivia. Camus took out the red mage while Titania took out the blue one. Lyn handled the two melee horses with dancing and with the Distant Def seal, she was able to survive Arvis' attack with 1 HP and finish him off. Now, the question remains, is he worth promoting?
  11. What is your unpopular Fire Emblem opinion?

    Different, but not bad. Also, let's be fair, most of Awakening (can't speak for Fates) still plays like Fire Emblem. Adding one mechanic does not take away the others. If anything, Awakening feels like a natural progression of the series. I would hardly call it wildly different. It had a fresh coat of paint and an improved interface and so forth, but it's still very much Fire Emblem, and before you ask, yes, I have played older games.
  12. Yeah, I determined they were biased before the review even hit, so I'm not even going to bother with theirs (not that I bother with most of their stuff these days).
  13. What is your unpopular Fire Emblem opinion?

    How could it be worse that they expanded the fanbase?
  14. What is your unpopular Fire Emblem opinion?

    Then that's Fates fault for doing it poorly. If anything, wouldn't that mean that Fates lowered the standards by poorly implementing things Awakening did? Awakening wasn't even that waifu...ish. It had S supports, but that's not that huge. It gives you access to the kids, but who you pair them with doesn't affect that outside of mild changes.
  15. Western Launch Trailer + DLC info

    Unless you live where I do, in which case digital purchases are tax free. I don't think they've changed that at least.
