    Only a few days now. No doubt they will drag.

    Anyone done much research in to the houses etc or NPCís involved in each?
    Feels like there will be a lot of dialogue which might be easier to follow with some background

    I am trying to avoid it for reasons incomprehensible to me.

    Someone pointed out that there was story spoilers doing the rounds for this game - my response was

    'Its fire emblem... nations go to war, one is being secretly controlled by an evil dragon. A hero will appear and meet a good dragon (in the form of a young girl (who is actually hundreds of years old of course), then they will find a legendary sword and vanquish the bad dragon, decimating the other nations army in the process... "

    fire emblem stories... they are not great.

    I hope this is my kind of game, like tactics games but donít seem to play them for very long periods. Then I get scared to come back in case Iíve forgotten it all. I donít imagine this wont fair particularly differently but maybe.....

    Iím tempted to have a look but its the potential for spoilers that puts me off. Even though its not out yet this stuff still gets on the internet somehow.

    Iíll likely have a look and if i find anything non spoilery will share

    I wouldn't bother. Peoples definition of spoiler differs dramatically and something you could think of as innocent, may be a spoiler to others.

    @jack5255 on the plus side there's 3 completely different routes through the game so the odds are you won't be spoiled on all of them :p

    Any thoughts on which house people will pick? I'll probably end up doing all of them at some point, but I have a friend who is starting with the blue one. So I'll probably do that so we can compare notes.

    I'm worried it's going to be a very 7/10 ish game. Fine, decent etc. but nothing to write home about.

    fucking shopto....

    i ordered with them over the weekend and they took payment same day.

    I just had an email from them saying they had tried taking payment again today but my card had been rejected. I logged on and it seems to have put the money i paid on Saturday on account and not allocated it to the fricking order.

    Pretty good so far. About 3.5 hours in. Only done a few battles. There's definitely a lot more to do in regards to levelling up and mooching around campus building motivation and lecturing etc. I'd say over 2 hours of it has been text conversations and wandering around doing side quests which so far are basically fetch quests. Spot of fishing, growing plants, gathering cooking materials etc.

    You have a schedule now with your activities laid out for each month and once per month you get free time to do as you please until you use up activity points you acquire. The battles themselves have been standard FE affair albeit with some changes. You can assign battalions to a number of characters and when used in battle it sends a swarm of grunts with you as a kind of special attack of sorts. There's also combat arts and weapon degradation.

    Think that's it for now really. Like I said I've played for a few hours and actually done one proper mission. The others were tutorial battles of sorts.

    Not sure I care for the idea of weapons degradation, but otherwise this sounds great.

    Was weapons degradation not in Fates? I can't remember, but it's been in every other FE game I've played.

    IIRC it was definitely in awakening for the good weapons.
