Free Fire Emblem: Awakening maps via SpotPass


The new’s just keeps getting better.  Not only am I enjoying 3 very awesome games at the moment (Fire Emblem: Awakening, Tomb Raider and SWTOR) and that it’s only March, and there’s still a slew of games (and systems) set to be released later on this year, but now you can get free DLC‘s for Fire Emblem: Awakening.  I think i’m going to give this a go right now.   Read the press release below.



Fire Emblem: Awakening impressions

Finally been able to put about an hour into the game.  Yeah, it’s not a whole lot, but enough to tell you that the game is awesome.  It plays just like the old Fire Emblem games, but with updated graphics.  I do enjoy the anime cut scenes, looked great on 3-D also.  The one thing I do find a bit annoying is the partial voice overs.  Instead of full dialogues, characters either say a few words at a time, or just do some random grunts.  You get used to it after a while, but I wish they would’ve just not put any voices in, or at least left it for the cut scenes. Also, why don’t they have feet?

Anyway, the game is great, story is entertaining as of now, and the battle graphics are good looking.  Can’t do much on the over world map, so I won’t hold that against it.  More to follow shortly.



Nintendo 3DS Fire Emblem Awakening Edition Unboxing

I finally got my hands on the Nintendo 3DS Fire Emblem Awakening Edition.  It came out earlier this week, and the game itself is in short demand due to some shipping issues, at least according to the dude at Gamestop, and due to that game card shortage, fans of the game are snagging the system with the game pre-installed.  The system itself is in high demand, as it’s not even available on other retailers other than Gamestop.  Amazon is also selling it for $100.00 over retail, but it’s a Canadian store selling it, which probably explains the price.  I had to pick one up sooner rather than later as the stock is getting thin.

anyway, enjoy the video, and I will be following up with a half review to the game after I spend some time with it.
