I too am excited about the crossover. But it still seems like an odd blend of franchises. The fact that FE and AW are by the same studio and in the same sub-genre would make a more logical choice.

This is also not a non-funhouse thread. I only trust news from reliable sources like BnM and SalesBot.

Battalion Wars should really be viewed as it's own series. It allows you to become a "hero unit" and guide all of your troops in a 3rd person shooter framework. I feel BWii could have really turned into a great team-based 3rd person shooter on Wii U in Nintendo had allowed it to continue.

I liked Days of Ruin, though that was my first Advance Wars title, so I'm probably biased.

Honestly, I wish that we got a crossover between Fire Emblem and Advance Wars instead of the SM v FE. They could have done more to incorporate RPG leveling and let your army leader be an actual unit on the battlefield. Could have gone great in the steam punk setting for Project STEAM...too bad we wont see anything like that again from Nintendo again for a long time.

It is a turn based game similar to Fire Emblem. Big difference is that you produce units and no unique characters to "level up". Units can gain experience to get minor boosts.

I really would think of it as a turn based RTS. I would love to get a new one.

Welcome to our forums, Ninferno!

I agree this should not be compared to Pokemon versions. Those ultimately were the same game, just with different monsters available. I would hope these games also have different plots, options, items, and characters (we know there will be different characters).

I hope the 3rd arc is more than a "true ending". I like the idea of allowing you to refuse both sides, strike out on your own, and have opportunities to recruit characters from both sides as you build your own dynasty. More of a "choose your own adventures" style game.

Sounds like most of the complaints can be resolved by making sure you play co-op. Might pick it up to play with the Mrs.

I just don't feel the "wonder" of this Wonder Woman.

Didn't we troll a scammer on hear years ago? Someone who claimed to be a Nigerian princess or something needing help transporting her money to the USA?

I'll have to go with the main man himself: Sonic.

I am confused by this reasoning though. A game like Xenoblade would be perfect for release over the summer. Summer vacation? A ton of time for people in school to play games? Anyone?

I am guessing vacations take a toll on this which is why "Summer" titles release in May/June. A lot of people here take off for days, weeks, even months in the Summer. Get the sale in before they take off.


That's not funny. I do need G rank Savage Jho parts though...

I finished my Gog armor, but I love that fight so I will gladly help anyone else with it. I created a special Artillery God/Speed Gather set and just rock the cannons.

I have been meaning to check out Shovel Knight. I'll be on board this version since it has the DLC included.

Congrats on the victory! I still need a few parts to finish my Gog armor so if anyone else needs help with him let me know. It is probably one of my favorite set-piece fights in the game. I just get the Artillery skill and go to town on the cannons.

The SNES one is a classic. It is a nice, fun romp. Especially nice to have the simpler overarching game, because sometimes all of the extra nuances can sometimes bog the experience down. The SNES (and I feel to a lesser extent the N64 one) have the core qualities nailed down without all of the extra distraction.

It may be "old fashioned", but I would still like to see a true sequel to the original Mario RPG.

I'm online hunting most of the day if anyone wants to join.

I always wanted to grab this one. The N64 title was my favorite but this sounds like it would be up there with it.

Even split of 20 per-theme and then 20 that are a mashup of all the themes? That could be interesting.

I'll buy basket 9 in honor of the Khushling alts, who were doomed to die.

Sacred Stones had dual paths. One for Ephraim and one for Erika. You could find all of the same characters, just through different circumstances. I am hoping this isn't what they have in mind for the extra campaigns.

Nice to see Ephraim confirmed as a character. Now to hope for Soren and Nephenee.

I think it would be a fun project to assemble and play a list of the top 10 "bad gaming experiences".

The game looks beautiful. Anyone hoping for a pre-order bonus of one of the previous games like we got for Bayonetta?

Which is more of a "must experience" bad game? Sonic 06 or Superman 64?
