Geez man, I feel your pain.


Anyways, the dry spell is finally over and the T_T is back in town. Close Defense is the Seal of the Month while Savage Blow and Spur Spd are there (at least my Camilla will appreciate the former). Of course, my T_T is still largely untrained and pretty much solid Reds and Colorless (and its going to get worse once Joshua arrives on the scene), but I'm making due with my auxiliary teams. Still, so much better than the last two where I was struggling to pull the same numbers with A/A and 20% as I am now with a 40% unit and a D rank survival score.

Wow, thanks @Aeolus .  I don't think it's going to be an actually substantial announcement, of course, but just the fact that it could be is exciting.  My guess: announcing Steam version.

If anything, it's praiseworthy that they are bringing every single main entry to Steam one after the other.

I'm likely to pick this up at release.  I enjoy the VC battle system enough that, even if the execution is less than stellar, there should be something there for me to like.

And even if they botch it utterly...well, I guess I have to play a bad game every once in a while so that I can appreciate the good ones.  At least I'll get a Sakimoto soundtrack out of it.

Keep the wonderful art style and gameplay and it would be really hard to screw this up. The story and characters are a bit worrying tho. They seem to be notching up the fact or angst and grittyness up considerably for this one.

Lost in the gameplay of VC1 was how good the story and characters were. It was well done story about different people coming together to play their part in stopping an invasion with a nice subplot about the evils of predijudice in it.  It was a masterclass of simple story telling in a RPG.

Worse still is that it seems that they're going deeper on the tropes. We've got a serious but hotblooded leader, a very positive female, a Darcsen, and a cold sniper chick. They could've easily just transported Welkin and Co. or the Nameless Squad to the Naissur Front, and accomplish practically the same thing.

Wait, Fire Emblem Warriors is a game? I thought it was a Fire Emblem Rock Arrangement album. ;)

It's more of a joke. Games that bear the Warriors name aren't usually received too well, so perhaps people might get mad it got a higher score than other games so far.

1. Fable II (17 hours)
2. The Legend of Heroes - Trails in the Sky (75 hours)
3. The Legend of Zelda - Breath of the Wild (127 hours)
4. Shoot1Up (45 minutes)
5. FF IX  (45 hours)
6. Ys Origin (17 hours) - This series never misses.  At least not since the PSP era.
7. Castlevania: Dracula X Chronicles - I'd thought this game was a bit easy... until I got to Dracula... particularly his 3rd form. Richter is awesome and I'm glad I finally finished the lead in to the greatest game in the series.
8. Suikoden (30 hours) - Can't believe I never gave this series a chance... straight on to Suikoden II...
9. Borderlands (way too long) - Stupid game with a stupid end that I stupidly stayed up all night once last week to finish.  Good Riddance.
