Last week, I came up with a list of predictions and then my hopes for the Fire Emblem direct. Let’s review said predictions shall we?
Well, aside from the Eastern style bent this particular edition of FE has, which only makes me more excited.
Fire Emblem Awakening System: YES
A familiar (as in, the samurai theme) yet new type of setting in the FE world: YES!
New storywriter: YES
The characters have feet: YES!!!
There’s a lot to get to, including how this could tie into SMT x FE (!!!) based on the Japanese title and Iwata mentioning making choices in this game, grabbin some screenshots, and some other stuff but I just got back from work and need to watch this trailer for the next hundred hours. Discuss anything you want about the 14th edition of the FE franchise, and any speculation.
…Shin Megami Tensei IV.
Well, if anything, my hiatus will probably not last long as I’ll try and crank out a first impressions post this week. I have little idea what I’m about to get into, but at least now I can prepare for the SMT x FE crossover that I still expect to come next year. I wonder if I’ll like this game though…
Anyways, I’ll try and write some stuff about this game, my progress, etc. Might even try and tie it into FE somehow. But I’ll see. For now, time to game!
To that I go: why?
I guess I’m contractually obligated to talk about what I discovered pertaining to the Fire Emblem franchise. I don’t know why–
Time for a regression to the mean. Ok maybe not so much. I legitimately want to write about as many things about Fire Emblem: Awakening as possible (note: I also want to write about the small things in the Fire Emblem franchise as well). However, this may not be quite as small as least suspected. You see, Awakening has a feature that I think some people playing don’t know about it. I’ll tell you this: I didn’t even know about it and I had 2/3 of the way to go in the main quest until I found out about…the Bonus Box.
What is the Bonus Box?
This isn’t very hard. You’ve all played this game enough. So the question is simple: who’s your favorite character in Fire Emblem: Awakening? I’ll get you guys started off by sharing some of my favorite characters.
