Fire Emblem Fates

Postby Kaori » Wed Feb 03, 2016 7:05 am

http://fireemblemfates.nintendo.com

Comes out this month and I've got plans to get it, although if possible, I'll go for the special edition, I'm kinda needing something to scratch my itch in the tactical RPG department, and no I do not want project x zone, it was nothing but fanservice and eye candy, even by JRPG standards, it was basically the game equivalent of filler fanfiction, its fun to look at, but nothing deeper, as for why Fire Emblem, I guess its that old fashioned Tactical charm that I like about it, so anybody else with a 3DS getting it?

i've been going to my local stores almost on a weekly basis asking if they are taking special edition pre orders.(cause sometimes they will when they say they don't lol)

plus i've been keeping an eye online for it to pop up as well. If I can't get it, oh well, i guess i'll just do gamestop's offer and get both for 60, and get revelations at a later date.

I won't have to worry about the pre-orders running out here, most "gamers" here tend to buy shooters, by the 20th I should be able to get my hands on one, if not, birthright and a $50 Eshop card, and does the Corrin Amiibo do anything in the game? Or nothing?

I only pre-ordered to get the bonus key chain things(through gamestop) or whatever they are called. Might as well get what I can for bonuses that are physical, everything now a days is digital bonus crap. but all this is assuming I don't find a way to get the special edition, which i doubt at this point.

As for amiibo support, I don't believe roy or corrin, well more of corrin, to have any support initially, but I do expect the possibility through a patch or update that they will eventually get some sort of support.

The amiibos aren't made yet, so we don't know. But considering how this game has been out for months in Japan, it's unlikely.
As for the game itself... I am not a fan of tactical RPGs to begin with, and only bought Awakening because Nintendo had a deal nearly 3 summers ago where if you bought FE:A and Shin Megami Tensei IV, they would give you $30 credit on the eshop. I was already going to buy SMTIV, so I thought why not to FE:A.
I couldn't stand it. There was no sense of strategy from the enemy side; they just attacked your nearest unit. Beating it was a chore not because it was hard, but because it was too easy. Not to mention the boring story, and how every character is nothing more than a few unlockable scenes. After that, they take the backseat (save for the small main cast, and even they don't get much characterization outside of your avatar and Chrom.)

But, this is my opinion.

Yeah, its simple, which it what makes it enjoyable, the only complicated things I like in life are Visual Novels, anyway, I'm consodering skipping this game recently to get Disney Infinity 3.0, I recently learned Boba Fett is a figure, so I'm gonna go make a 1313 themed campaign.

you guys both make me sad :( lol j/k. I actually enjoyed awakening, but I like these kind of games and the series itself haha, but I do see where you are coming from and understand why there wouldn't be much appeal if you aren't into them.

now as for the amiibo support, i get that its been out a few months in japan, with nothing been said of corrin or roy, but it is possible they could be waiting for the western release to move forward with support. At least, this is more what I am hoping the reason to be.

Eh, if I can't get 3.0, I'll get fates then, so not to worry.

Only real videogame chain in the country is called Datablitz, no gamestop, and besides, I'm gonna be spending about $160 on disney infinity, want a LOT of those figures, but that is if my older sis will allow me, if not, Fire emblem it is.

I checked the Price of 3.0, its quite large despite being rather old, so I may just get FE after all, and maybe those doctor who packs for younger sis.

Yeah, they didn't have the special edition over here, they didn't even have pre-orders, I'll just go order it on Amazon, although I did grab Disney Infinity 3.0 instead.

I got Pokemon Yellow, my first time playing it. Yellow kinda slipped by back then and I never got around to playing it.
Which version of FE did you get?

I actually got both versions, but I am playing through birthright first to get a feel for it and the story, and then go to conquest on a higher difficulty and enjoy more story lol. What I don't have yet, but plan to get as well, is the Revelations version.

so i guess to answer the question. Both! and eventually all 3!
