I kinda like the art.  I guess I'm the only one.  Honestly I'm fairly interested in the game.  Not sure if I care for the team attack, but if it's balanced properly then I will be fine with it.

I could see DLC being map packs or skills.  Characters would be kind of boring, but I guess they could work too.  Wouldn't buy them either way unless they were exceptionally well done.

I like the art too, actually. It's less plain looking that the usual Fire Emblem. I think the game looks really good in general and I hope we do see it over here.

Same thing as with Suikoden, I've never touched a Fire Emblem game in my life. Maybe I tried one on a emulator but I doubt it given how much I suck with this genre.

Either way I just wanted to say that I like how the attacks have this "weight" and/or "impact" to them. It really feels that you are making damage to the enemies, and aside from that I dunno what to think... it doesn't look terrible but I do like the art style of the DS game more.

As far as the art goes, I can appreciate them trying to make it less bland, but I think characters end up looking ridiculous when you try too hard:

Is Fire Emblem going sci-fi now?

It made me think of Aion armor designs immediately, and I wasn't much a fan of that game's aesthetic, either. As bland and boring as the art in other FE games were, they at least looked sensible (fluorescent pink armor plates aside). I get the feeling that recently a lot of armor in fantasy games are constantly trying to one-up each other in the gaudy department.

To be fair, at least he isn't using his breast plate as a shield.
In my vision, I see that one of us is going to KO the other.

I haven't enjoyed FE since the first one hit the GBA years ago, but it doesn't mean I've learned from past mistakes. Will definitely get a 3DS for this.

FE7 is my favorite as well, but I think it's more because it was the first time any of us had ever been exposed to FE. On a personal level, I also liked that they drew you into the story by making you have an actual physical presence in the game in some capacity- it helped you care about the characters a lot more. I certainly have a much deeper impression of Lyndis, Eliwood and Hector than I do Ephraim, Eirika, Roy or Marth. That was one thing I wanted to see in that remake to FE3 they made, but that never made it over, so I'm not too confident this one will, either.

It was a good strategy game. People whining about the lack of plot/character development should stick to traditional RPGs.

That would apply if the last several FE games released before it weren't leagues ahead in the story/character development departments.

Yeah, cause I think 'good strategy game' when I am forced to kill off my units to get better ones. That is the exact opposite of what you should do.
