So yeah, I got the game. I will be attempting to blog about it because it’s not like I can stream it. The run is on Hard/Classic. I’m still not sure which path to take just yet, but I’m leaning Conquest.
So yep, still have the kid gloves on, as we learn a bit more about our avatar character (Walters of course) as he finds himself unable to leave his home. He’s lost his memory, but he has maids, brothers, and sisters tending to him as he tries to recover. We’ll finally get to see the guy in the image above, so that’ll be cool.
The chapter itself is merely defeating Xander. As far as I could tell, he’s like when you face off against Greil in Path of Radiance — he’s there for you to level up, train, etc. Also, we get to find out about Dragon Veins, though I assume they’ll be more of a hint as the game goes on. Otherwise, it seems he can kill you, but he doesn’t actually attack on his phase, so you basically take advantage of that to clear the chapter.
The one standout so far is definitely Lilith, but not surprisingly her moment was passed quickly, so A) I do hope she’s an actual character in this game B) That she can actually be romanced. I’mma assume so. Otherwise, Elise is…Elise, I dunno what to make of Camilla, Leo seems ok (and the joke actually made me chuckle), and the butler who said “stiff upper lip” annoyed the hell out of me. Good god, why?
Anyways, let’s keep it moving!
