Fire Emblem Fates Fire Emblem Fates 


I have been playing through Fire Emblem Fates Conquest, and my dad has been playing through Fire Emblem Fates Birthright. We are both waiting to see if Fire Emblem Fates Revelation will receive a physical copy release. DLC does so much damage, that we hate to purchase it. Plus we hate to pay for distribution, and we do not like signing away all our consumer rights. One thing that still stings here at Family Friendly Gaming is Nintendo's greed concerning Fire Emblem Fates. They can fit all three games on one cartridge. So why are they selling them in three separate versions? Doesn't Nintendo respect and care for their fanboys? It is easy to see how Nintendo got so many billions in their bank account. They have fleeced consumers and their fanboys. I hope someone stands up against this, and calls Nintendo out. Well besides Family Friendly Gaming that is. I hope to have a review of Fire Emblem Fates in issue #106.

Thus far in playing Fire Emblem Fates, there are things we like, and things we do not like. Nintendo packed Fire Emblem Fates with all kinds of offensive content. They attack Biblical marriage in Fire Emblem Fates. There is the violence in the turn based battles. Watching those fight scenes is boring beyond belief. I enjoy fast forwarding them. Amiibo support helps if you already own those characters. If not, that is even more money for content included in the game. There are numerous difficulty settings. Casual gamers will enjoy Phoenix mode. Characters on your team that die come right back to life on the next player's turn. Fire Emblem Fates can be difficult and have your dead characters stay dead forever. The axe, sword, spear system is still there, and as annoying as ever. Staffs are the only weapons that need to be re-purchased in Fire Emblem Fates. Which is neat. I hated weapons only having so many uses.

Fire Emblem Fates would be worth thirty dollars if all three campaigns were included on one physical cartridge. Since Nintendo split it, then divide that by three. The campaigns are not that different. Players can see different sides of the same war. Kind of like what was done in Shining Force III. In case you are wondering we still consider Shining Force to be better than Fire Emblem Fates. There have been improvements in the franchise, and there have been things that went the wrong direction. Nintendo can make the claim they provide for everyone, but we all know that is not true. There are always people that are not going to like certain aspects of certain games. Fire Emblem Fates is a great example of this. I am disappointed with Fire Emblem Fates.
