Thoughts on Fire Emblem: Awakening (3DS)


Hubba Hubba <3

Fire Emblem  is a video-game series which started off in Japan more than 20 years ago and was developed by Intelligent Systems. It is one of the  pioneering games in the tactical role-playing game genre, and was vastly known for being one of the first in the Eastern style role-playing games. The games that were produced in the series were great, and had soon become widely popular in Japan. However, there was not much to say about the game outside of Japan, as all of the games were Japanese exclusives. A decade later the seventh game was released internationally, and had a great response worldwide. Every game since then has been released internationally, excluding  Fire Emblem: Shin Monshō no Nazo: Hikari to Kage no Eiyū on the Nintendo DS.

Now, nearly 2 decades since ...

Indie Games: Shedding Unwanted Fat

Look, it’s understandable that when you drop $399+ on a new piece of next-gen tech, you expect to see some heavy-hitting, massive, graphically gorgeous AAA games. This gen will be no stranger to that, with Uncharted 4, Halo 5, The Legend of Zelda on their way, and we already have Super Mario 3D World and Titanfall. However, when you have that type of budget, and are dealing with big titles such as these, you can’t always innovate drastically, and risk alienating the fan-base. That’s just sequels! Ubisoft has gone on record of saying that they will not make a game unless it’s a guaranteed franchise starter. You can’t risk money like that, and not have it return...

This last week of July isn’t overly big with new releases, but it does have a few of note. The Last of Us Remastered releases on the PS4, so those who didn’t have a PS3 can see what everyone was raving about, as Naughty Dog’s version of a post apocalyptic America is well worth your time. Rogue Legacy makes the leap from the PC to Sony’s platforms for those wanting a dungeon crawler fix, and there’s a new LEGO game for the handhelds. On the home video front, Darren Aronofsky’s (Black Swan, The Fountain) biblical epic Noah debuts, as does the Cameron Diaz comedy The Other Woman.
