Fire Emblem: Awakening

I'm certain at least some of you have this. Personally, I loved almost every single part of it. Truly an epic adventure. It holds true to Fire Emblem roots, yet manages to innovate in way that neither feels to forced nor too redundant. Tons of replay value as well.

I agree completely. I think it is the definitive Fire Emblem experience.

I married Chrom my first playthrough, and after I got Morgan and Lucy, I pretty much just used them. Morgan had Astra, Rightful King, Sol, Luna, and Ignis. So he was completely unstoppable.

I started up another game on Lunatic and tried to follow a guide on the absolute best eugenics possible, but Lunatic kicked my ass before I even got them to start having sex.

In my playthrough, Vaike became the unstoppable powerhouse with 90 hp and 50+ strength, basically one-shotting just about everything. Of all the children, Laurent(Virion + Miriel) is definitely the most awesome-looking IMO.

Laurent, given the right parents, becomes an invincible nerdzerker.

I've enjoyed the game, now I'm working on getting every last support conversation. There are some very awesome combinations of skills with the right parents and/or second seals uses. I thought the story was quite good, and I certainly enjoyed all the battles. I hope we see more Fire Emblem titles on the 3DS, or if we're lucky, the Wii U.

The only reason Radiant Dawn (the Wii one) was playable was because you could use a Gamecube controller (or in my case, a 360 controller). I understand the desire for the WiiU to have a library, but man.

I think handhelds are best suited for turn-based strategy games as a whole, to be honest. You can take it anywhere and play on the train/bus whatever and if you're in a tough spot, you can just close it and resume sometime later. Also, if the guy next to you starts playing Angry Birds on his phone and you pull out a motherfucking 3DS, you know who's the boss.

And odds are they will have that option. Odds are it will also be fairly good, I for one enjoyed the Wii one, my personal opinion, I thought the story was good.

Also @Metroid: You are correct, you are the boss when you're playing Fire Emblem and the sucker next to you is playing "Angry Birds" or whatever crap their phone has.

It's okay to like it, but I should let you know it's generally accepted that Radiant Dawn has the worst story in the series (even worse that Sacred Stones, it's true!), and objectively the worst support conversations because they were generic (Watch your back in this battle!)
More unfortunate was that before Awakening, it also had the best gameplay. But it was on the Wii, so nobody really wanted it.
Not a bad game, but it didn't need to be on the Wii. Just like how the WiiU doesn't need Fire Emblem. It needs a good Metroid and Zelda and StarFox game that makes clever use of the gamepad. If they're gonna have the fucking thing they need to use it. Fire Emblem would not make use of it at all, and if it did, it could only serve to make the game worse.

Probably true, my personal hope is just that they make more Fire Emblem games, good ones that is. Undoubtedly you're probably right about them making it terrible on the Wii U. Personally if I had a choice for a Fire Emblem game I'd want it on the 3DS, it's made hour lunches at work quite enjoyable and welcome.
