That's almost enough to convince me to get a second 3DS. 0_o

(And then I realize just how stupid that idea is)

Rent. =p

On a less tragic note though, I really am looking forward to Awakening. I heard that character design is really the only major flaw, and everything else kicks ass.

x3 Rent indeed, but I'm willing to sacrifice a few luxuries for a decent vidya game.

So does this bundle involve the 'My Unit' feature? I've said it before, I'll say it again- I'm a whore for games with 'create a character' mechanics.

I'm pretty sure Awakening brings that back, as well as sexytime!

I can take or leave sexytime, but if I get the chance to make my own Lord? Forget about it. Fuckin' forget about it, I am 100% sold.

From what I understand, My Unit has the unique Strategist Class, which uses Swords and Tomes, but, like other units, can reclass to just about any other male class.

My Unit Creation (as it stood during "New Mystery of the Emblem") care of Serenes Forest.

The starting class also decides the clothes that My Unit wears.

Nintendo just announced it would be $199 for the bundle and it's available on Feb 4th. It's NOT a 3DS XL though...

I always got bad levels from Lyndis.

They need more good Shaman characters. This one-per-game crap is pissing me off since I like Dark Magic best (I'm a druid, what do you expect?)

Please, please make a First Impressions post when you get a chance- spoiler free, if possible, ya' know, but I would appreciate getting first thoughts on the game from someone I can trust rather than a review site or video.

Thank you kindly! What with my phone bill coming up, and saving up for a new apartment/rent/groceries, I wanna make sure it's worth the 200 before I throw down for it.

(I'm sure it will be, and I'll be picking it up at some point regardless, but knowing it's good will make me feel less-bad about spending so much on a new handheld system AND game.)

Well, I may be fucked. My food stamps card didn't get re-loaded like it should have been, so we might not have enough money after groceries to get it.

Suddenly, I'm fairly numb.

We're still going to go for it, it seems. Still numb, though.

I'm surprised more people aren't going on about this. I'm not sure what percentage I am though the story, but I'm through chapter 15 at the least. So far I have been pretty impressed with this. They really put some effort into this game. This is better than the past 3 games. Them putting in the option of having the original voices was a relief to me. Though every time I start the game, I have to change the voices to English, then change them back, or else the voices will get buggy.

They bring back the roaming map thing they did in FE8. I personally like that, because I have a little more freedom to do what I want with my characters. I kinda don't like leaving some characters I like behind because they just weren't good enough.

I really like the tactician character they give you. Unlike FE7, she actually plays an active role in the story, and she plays a part in battle. Speaking of that, I have a question about (chapter 13 spoilers)
Spoiler: show
Chrom's child. In my game, they forced her to marry Chrom and Lucina is her child. I WANTED to leave the support level at A and have her be with someone I thought was cool, but they forced the support level to jump to S and have her marry Chrom when chapter 12 was over. I was actually a bit annoyed with that. Onto my question. If he doesn't have a high support level with anyone, who does he end up marrying? It shows his older sister holding Lucina in the cutscene, so I'm guessing it's her. I'm actually impressed with how natural they make it seem. They make it to where I have a hard time imagining anyone but the tactician being Lucina's mother. Lucina can turn into a tactician class as well.


Finally, Donnel is insane. He is better than anyone at everything, except magic. Because of his ability, he gets a perfect level up almost every time. It's not a question of how good his level ups will get him, it's a question of what his damn stat caps are, because everything WILL get there.

I am extremely excited for this game. I'm pretty much about to buy a 3DS so I can play this.

Sorry I haven't reviewed it yet like I said I would, truth be told I only just picked it up today. Due to some sort of shipping error, everywhere around me hasn't had it since it came out nearly two weeks ago and they're only just beginning to get stock in.

Will probably play a bunch this weekend and leave first impressions, then I'll try finishing it up by next weekend and write a review.


Also picked up Layton and the Miracle Mask because it's on sale at Best Buy for $15 and I priced matched it over at Target since BB was all sold out.

One neat thing about the new Fire Emblem I realized, which I wish I realized sooner. This game encourages you to make couples out of the characters. You get more from them than simply a support bonus, which is nice. The details about some of it is silly, but I still really like it. Anyway, new players, work on making your army a love nest! You should realize what it does around chapter 15.

I'm actually spending more time on building support ranks than anything.
