RPG Backtrack: Episode 180 - Awakening the Fire

JuMeSynJuMeSyn Code: KirinAdministrators
A few years ago, it looked as if Fire Emblem was on its last legs. Intelligent Systems threw everything it could think of into a game called Awakening, and it worked the necessary magic to get the series a new lease on life.

It's not what he's eating, but what's eating him that makes it ... sort of interesting.

    There's another fun little coincidental relation I forgot to mention. Donnel is voiced by Sam Riegel in English and Nah is voiced by Eden Riegel. Donnel is a popular father for Nah and their voice actors are real life brother sister. It's not quite as fitting as Tara Platt/Yuri Lowenthal and Laura Bailey/Travis Willingham, but I find it neat.

    I may have missed it running for a bus, but when you did the character rundown did you mention Kellam? (I suppose it would make sense for his character to be skipped.)

    At some point I need to finish my second playthrough (with male Robin) so I can actually get Kellam, Tharja and Libra. Missed all three on my first playthrough.

    Also, there is multiplayer - either through StreetPass or local co-op or competitive battling. It was actually surprisingly robust in my local StreetPass group for a while.

    Kellam: Even when they're talking about me, other people don't notice...

    (We brought him up twice, heh).

    Yeah, I definitely like the direction Fire Emblem began with Awakening. I didn't care much for Shadow Dragon, but I'm definitely glad I gave the series another chance.
