Scarlets are red, Violets aren't blue, they're purple you idiot, the name is the clue.

ANNA IS OUT!


Yeah, I really shouldn't be buying this kind of nickle and dime dlc, but I just can't resist adding in Anna and following my Awakening tradition of having her a part of my end-game team. I hereby ask for forgiveness that I shall not receive, for I hath sinned.

After stumbling back into Fire Emblem Heroes, I found myself jonesing for a fully fledged FE game. I realised I hadn't actually finished Revelations before, so I've hopped back into Fates.

I replayed Birthright again in full to reacclimitise myself to the game and dipped my toes into Conquest to realise I don't have the patience to strategise my way through this campaign (although Chapter 10 was actually fun to solve, just took bloody ages) and I've now started Revelations. Part of me wishes I'd just gone back to the other campaigns I've yet to do in FE:TH or even fired up Echoes again.

I do think this is my least favourite FE game that I've played to completion. The writing is absolutely miserable and exemplifies everything I dislike about this style of FE game. A huge chunk of the supporting cast are so miserably one note and even in the main cast, there's nobody that even approaches the likes of Dimitri or Edelgard in FE:TH. The plot reflects that with some absolutely nonsensical writing at points.

The child system makes zero thematic sense in Fates, but the game hides a huge chunk of its roster and a ton of chapters behind engaging with that nonsense, so it's not like you can ignore it either. Plus, the whole structure of the game means finishing Birthright or Conquest don't exactly feel satisfying as the proper ending is undoubtedly hidden behind a DLC paywall.

I'm supremely glad that the series seems to have turned away from the direction that Fates was leading it down and vastly improved my complaints with FE:TH.

NLife pointing out that Fire Emblem Fates: Revelation is going to be pain soon to play, as the DLC won't be available after March 2023 and the physical it is on a tad expensive.

I might see if likes of CDkeys etc have a code for it cheap, as heard mixed things about Fire Emblem Fates: Revelation, such Athrun saying the worst then NLife saying the best.

I mean Fates in general is the worst... Go pick up the GBA ones on Wii U, a much better investment.

I liked which ever Fates I played and I do have the GBA maybe even DS ones on Wii U.

I wouldn't even say missing out on Revelations is that big of a deal. I meant what I said in my last post in this thread - it really is a woeful Fire Emblem game.

I'm now on Chapter 15 of 28 (If Endgame counts as a chapter) meaning I'm not quite halfway yet (as started on the split in Chapter 6, so I've done 9 chapters) of Revelations, which puts me about 9hrs in.

At the moment it's been fine, I do have a lot of units because of both nations along with playing normal but no permadeath (with the amount of units I got maybe I should have had a bash with permadeath on).

It, like said elsewhere, does make me want a new shiny FE on Switch, which Three Hopes might satisfy a bit.
