    I ignored most of Awakening's DLC, buying three packs (The Golden Gaffe, Scramble, and The Future Past), and the singular map that gives you Paragon. More of this DLC seems interesting, and $17.99 is nice compared to the price of buying every map individually (~$25). I'll have to figure out if I really want all of those maps, though.
    Bravely second...

    I know I should probably avoid the DLC, I don't need more Fire Emblem than is coming in the special edition, but I'm I'm getting really hyped for this game. It's also tempting that Amazon is selling a download code for the bundle of DLC. Maybe I'll use this as a chance to try buying Nintendo digital stuff on Amazon. Yay for not having to add money to a wallet!

    I played the heck out of the DLC maps for Awkening, so buying the bundle.

    Probably worth mentioning that the DLC maps would be the only way to grind if you played the Conquest campaign, as I understand it.

    Call me cheap, but it sucks that all the DLC isn't part of the collectors edition.

    So I have a question I was not able to get the collectors edition so I will be having to buy Birthright and Conquest separately. So my questions are do I have to buy the DLC for each title? or do I only have to buy it once?

    I'm pretty certain you'll only have to buy them once.

    I'm hoping only once cause I'm in the same boat

    DLC is tied to the SD card in a 3DS. I imagine that the DLC is shared (and thus doesn't have to be bought twice) between both Fates games. I'm not certain, though.

    Is this DLC already on the cart, and paying for it just unlocks it?

    I'm really not a fan of paid DLC content for a full-price RPG, but I think the US has been screwed out of Fire Emblem series releases in the past. So if more money extracted via paid DLC means the developers have incentive to keep localizing the games, and we don't get denied Fire Emblem games anymore, then I suppose it's a positive trade-off.

    Are people that are getting "both" not just buying the $20 DLC for the alternate path? Buying both carts separately seems like a pain, pocketbook-wise (same price as SE, but only 2 campaigns instead of 3 and no extras). I'm actually curious if Nintendo might have forseen people doing this, or if the 3DS might treat them as different games for the purpose of linking the DLC purchased. That would be... unfortunate.

    In theory, anyone that just gets one copy can effectively pay the exact same amount as a SE-purchaser to get all the paths:
    SE = 3 paths = $80
    Conquest/Birthright = 1 path = $40 + $20 (2nd path) + $20 (3rd path) = $80

    If you buy separate carts, then I think you might miss out on some of the bonuses they give you for purchasing/having the alternate paths too (some in-game items apparently).

    I'm not keen on buying season-pass/timed-release sorts of things generally (schedule ends in April for map pack 1?). $7 off is pretty good, though this game is already kinda steep with DLC included ($97? for map pack and all paths).

    Well, my roommate and I are buying different version and will trade later on, so I am actually saving $20. Otherwise, no, I would not have bought separate cartridges.

    Hmm, well, hopefully not an issue then.

    I'm getting both cause I want both, I have more the enough friends (and a wife) who play it as well.
