Whenever I see the games graphics, one word that comes to my mind is lush. I never use lush in my sentences at all.

EDIT: well i looked up lush, i thought it was another word for good looking or rich in a visual way. Turns out i was wrong.

No, it still works in your context. According to Merriam-Webster it can refer to something that is appealing to the senses. Their learner's dictionary (which differs slightly, for some reason) also says "having a pleasingly rich quality," and uses the phrase "the film's lush imagery" as an example. So let's just say that you're no lush for using "lush" the way you did!

aaaaaha.

It's kind of like Zelda where there are games that are undoubtedly related to each other, and there's implications that they're all related in a single universe or something.

There are thirteen games in the series.

FE1 - Fire Emblem: Ankoku Ryū to Hikari no Tsurugi - The original game with Marth on the continent of Archanea.
FE2 - Fire Emblem Gaiden - A gaiden game taking place after FE1 on a different continent, Valencia.
FE3 - Fire Emblem: Monshō no Nazo - Direct sequel to FE1 a few years later. Also includes an abridged remake of FE1.
FE4 - Fire Emblem: Seisen no Keifu - Takes place on another continent, but the backstory says that it all takes place a very long time before FE1 and the continent, Jugdral, is south of Archanea.
FE5 - Fire Emblem: Thracia 776 - Midquel to FE4 that takes place in the middle of the game, in Jugdral's Thracian peninsula.
FE6 - Fire Emblem: Fūin no Tsurugi - Seemingly completely unrelated to the previous games, on Elibe. The one with Roy.
FE7 - Fire Emblem - Prequel to FE6 a few years earlier.
FE8 - Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones - Also seemingly completely unrelated to the previous games, on Magvel.
FE9 - Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance - This one too, on Tellius. The one with Ike.
FE10 - Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn - Direct sequel to FE9 a few years later.
FE11 - Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon - Remake of FE1.
FE12 - Fire Emblem: Shin Monshō no Nazo ~Hikari to Kage no Eiyū~ - Remake of FE3.
FE13 - Fire Emblem Awakening - Takes place thousands of years after Marth's time. Archanea is now Ylisse. Tons of allusions to every single game in the series.


We're on 13... God why does that give me this "Nintendo has a Final Fantasy and we don't know it!" type of feel?... You know, without the salty taste of Square in your mouth.

Was looking through the options in the demo and noticed that you can turn off the dialog grunts. Very happy about that, I was contemplating whether I would have to mute the game during dialog.

Awakening has a surprisingly large number of options, yeah. While analog control for the Circle Pad is neat I can never part with good old digital input and I'm glad it's still there.

Holy cow, thank the Bacons! That was probably the only bad thing I could say about the demo. And I'm glad you posted that, makes me feel better about my time playing it, lol.

Yeah, I found that part of the demo to be a bit strange seeing as how the cutscenes had full voiceovers dialogue. Why couldn't they just do it for the conversations too? I don't know if it was for creative reasons or a tight budget but it seems like a missed opportunity. It might take some time to get used to for me.

I can think of two reasons:

1. Japan didn't have fully voiced either. So NoA decided to follow suit.
2. They're just as cheap as NoJ. LOL.

I'm used to it. At least there's some voices (as lousy as it is) and artwork to go with the conversation. Back then, all they did was blink and move their lips with the same expressions.

You're probably right on both count.

It will be a minor annoyance at first hearing huh, right, what,etc. over and over but I'll take it over text scroll noises every time.

I was never interested in Fire Emblem until this game. Played a little bit of Path of Radiance on Gamecube and the Sacred Stones from being an ambassador but that was it. Lack of interest and motivation kept me from playing further. The presentation and art style of Awakening is what got my attention in the first place. Character customizations and the multiple difficulty option (hello casual mode :) ) sealed the deal.

You can turn the dialogue off if you want. The options are there to optimize your experience.

Quick question. Before Awakening, are there any other FE games that featured the 'Casual' mode? Or are they all on 'classic' mode?

Fire Emblem: Shin Monshō no Nazo ~Hikari to Kage no Eiyū~ for DS was the first and only other game to include a Casual Mode. Every other game plays as what Awakening dubs as Classic Mode.

Interesting thing happened to me in GameStop. While there, I asked to reserve it. Didn't happen, so I have to wait tomorrow for the reservation to transfer to fire emblem (gonna check tomorrow just in case). Another thing to note, one guy just said it originally was gonna be released 02/05 there, but it's been changed to 01/30. Probably a mistake.

I can't wait till it comes out. I played through the demo quite a bit, and it seems quite good.

I'm not much of a Fire Emblem fan, due to the lack of recent localization, but it seems like Nintendo finally noticed that there are many Fire Emblem fans outside Japan. I think due to the wide range of characters in FE13, it should help to get new Fire Emblem fans to become interested in the series.

You're not much a fan because the ONE game didn't make it overhere? That's the focus, not the five that did make it over here?
Any objections lady?

Sorry, I misspoke a bit. I meant that they are starting to take more notice, after the want for the release of FE12 outside of Japan, and the planned release of FE13 as well as the announcement of the new crossover FE game, I think that they will start to focus more on FE fans outside of Japan than they are currently.

To be fair, Fire Emblem 4 would've been the **** had it came over. Maybe even better than chrono trigger or final fantasy 6.

Though on a higher note, does anyone else love the new Marth redesign?
