Fire Emblem Fates, known in Japan as Fire Emblem If, is a tactical role-playing video game developed by Intelligent Systems and Nintendo SPD, and published by Nintendo for the Nintendo 3DS handheld video game console in June 2015 in Japan and internationally in 2016.

I finally got around to playing Conquest this week, and I have to say that the writing is a huge step down from Awakening. I'm only a few hours in, and the game has already had someone explain the protagonist's personality to the protagonist, had the protagonist be shocked that her father is doing evil things even though he's never shown doing anything but evil things, treated the assassination of a character you just found out existed and who said maybe 4 lines to you is moving and tragic, had you suddenly turn into a dragon when that happened for some reason, had the protagonist's father accuse the protagonist of treason after she clearly rejected and fought against her birth family in order to return to said father, and then the father punishing her for her disloyalty by sending her on a difficult mission she would only go on if she were in fact loyal to him. Like these are simple, basic fuck ups that shouldn't even be in a first draft, let alone a published game. And the sad thing is that the team listened to criticism of their last game's story and sought to rectify it by hiring an outside writer. I have no idea how they thought the script he gave them was at all acceptable. The in house writers weren't amazing, but holy shit were they better than this guy.

Still, the relationship conversations seem decent enough, and it seems to play fine, but I just wish those things weren't attached to such an incompetently told story.

I put this down after the first few chapters (Conquest), mainly cause I didn't like the characters or the gameplay that much. But I started it up again, and wow I'm impressed at just how difficult Hard/Classic actually is. I just beat Chapter 10 and it felt very satisfying having to actually think of a strategy, this is comparable to Awakenings first Lunatic mode.

Thought to jump into the My Castle feature. Thought why not collect some other ores, and foods. Look at recommended castles, and the top result my "Auschwitz". Maybe I should do this another time.....

How can I complain about these games being together? Conquest, and Birthright both are sold indivudually have different stories, missions, characters, features, difficulty, and different mechanics. It doesn't make any sense that games so different are lumped together. Ranking both of them is ridiculous along with giving them a score. If they were released at two different times they would be separated, but for some reason they aren't.

When are we going to separate these games. They feature different stories, characters, and levels so they deserve different entries.

The more I read about how Nintendo is handling their same-sex romance options in this game, the less I want to buy it, honestly. It really sucks because I was looking forward to this a great deal, but what they're doing is so hurtful and insulting and I think it's just now finally sinking in for me, and idk if I can look past it. It's bad enough you essentially force players to pick between Gay Guy Version and Lesbian Version if they want same-sex romance, but when your one option for each gender is an awful, reprehensible character that no one or few people would really find appealing, while FE:Awakening had 210 possible different-sex romance pairings, it's just a joke and a reminder that those of us who aren't straight aren't "normal" or as important to them.

Stephanie Taylor I honestly would rather they omitted the meager and offensive same-sex romance options if this is the alternative. And then there's this fucking grossness which is its own can of worms:

Stephanie Taylor Preemptive disclaimer for anyone reading this: if you want to argue or "debate" with me on this and tell me why it's no big deal, don't comment on this post. Because I'm really fucking upset about all of this and my patience is at about -30 right now.

Retro Wolf I completely understand where your coming from with this. While the game itself might be good in terms of gameplay and so forth, the fact that " you can’t romance her as the female" is sickening. There are no real reasons as to why this is the case, and it's taking away from not just a character in a fictional world, but from people who identify as the same, and want freedom of choice. This whole fiasco is warranted, because that makes no logical sense whatsoever.

The Fire Emblem series is one of my favorite, and I suspect this game will fit right into my love for the series. I expect great characters, great gameplay, new interesting ideas for combat, and a good plot.
