yeah really happy with FE and I can see it will keep me going for a while (at least my wallet hopes so!!!) 

 

Just unlocked the base building on my lunch break and did a 'challenge' mission. I love how there are other things on the battlefield to interact with as well, makes for a lot of strategic decisions I wasn't expecting. The relationship system seems pretty neat as well. 

 

Really glad I got this, though when in chapter 5 there's an obvious split between Birthright / Conquest (if you own both you can choose your path) I actually wish I'd gone for Conquest. 

 

There is a way to purchase Conquest and the other DLC Revelations within the app as well, at a discounted price of $35 each so that is a real bonus. Not sure I'll play all 3, but at least Revelations might be worth a try after Birthright.

Yes, that'st the big bifurcation at end of ch. 5. When you start the next game, it'll take you straight there to make your choice again.

 

I think it's much better to start with Birthright. The 3 parts are (as I understand it) structured in such a way that Birthright -> Conquest -> Revelation is the natural progression. There's no rule that says you can't play them in another order though - esp. for Fates veterans it's more appealing to jump straight into Conquest. But for those still learning the ropes of FE strategy, it's much easier to start with Birthright.

BTW, I poured over 100 hours into Birthright, and I could've done more! So I think you'll be safe with having plenty to play through for some time yet. :thumbsup:

 

The beauty of the 3 parts is that you get to see events from the two different viewpoints, and then in Revelation a third, truly combined, synergistic view.

Only thing that bugs me (more of a nintendo / situational thing) is that a lot of these games feature way-cool sounding street pass functionality, however I never freaking streetpass anyone (asides from armageddon). I take it everywhere with me in my bag just in case but seems like it's hay-day is over. I got 1 SP from walking through town one day and that was it. Wish there was an app you could streetpass through or something.

Oh you can visit bases online without street pass! And buy stuff from their vendors, battle and get free items!

So lit, fam.

Street passing was always good at uni. But I usually got wrecked but other peoples teams in awakening, still fun to have a look at there teams though, seeing what characters they used and what not

Glad you're enjoying it! Birthright was my least favourite of the four, but even the worst steak is still a steak, amirite?

 

I'll give you my base code and you can reap the rewards of my labour. Just don't try to battle my team for a while, I went full eugenics simulator on my Revelation team, they're freaking super-soldiers :P

Pretty cool that Conquest and Revelations is offered in game at a discounted price. Will see if I can finish Birthright over the holidays.

Whenever Chrom's not on screen, everyone should be asking "Where's Chrom?"

Finally. It's taken them long enough!

Looks like my phone is going to be invaded by more Nintendo goodness in the next few months! :D
