I watched one of the e3 videos the other day, and I have to say, I don't like the direction of this game

Hell of a value for fans though with the three long paths!
I really hope I fall into the fan camp as this will be my first Fire Emblem game

If not though I have a friend of mine who is interested in taking it off my hands. I don't expect to be able to start on it right away though as I'll still be going through Ultimate Alliance 3 on release date unless that game is super short.

I'm excited to see Fire Emblem in HD and the game itself looks solid. One hundred times more excited for this than Pokemon SWSH.

I had the premium edition on order (knowing how sought after they become) and decided to cancel it. I figured I'd never finish it and I'll never sell it off. Might pick the regular edition up down the line at a discount if reviews are good but from what I've seen this version doesn't seem to be the direction I want a game like this to take.

Reviews for this are looking fantastic. Almost all 9s across the board. With my decision to wait on Ultimate Alliance 3 I'll be digging in to this this weekend.

Forgot to cancel my Gamestop copy of the Special Edition. Guess. I'm returning that one to the store since I'm picking it up from Best Buy today. Maybe I'll see if someone wants it for retail locally instead of returning it since it sold out.

Edit: Oops guess it isn't sold out. Best Buy has it for sale right now. I'll return my copy then once it arrives from Gamestop

Got my CE(s) today. Target copy had a dent in the corner, GameStop copy was flawless... but that's the one getting returned since they charged me shipping. Wish I could have got a copy from Best Buy since I have GCU, but they cancelled my order at the closest store... then they went back up online. I hate Best Buy.

Remember you have to take the Nintendo grading curve into account. Most of these sites have a hard on for anything Nintendo produces (especially IGN).

Why would you buy a type of game you know you don’t like?

I put about 22 hours in since Friday and am really loving the game. The story is intriguing and the characters are pretty good with some backstory twists that I did not expect. I went with the Black Eagles for my first playthrough. My progress will slow considerably now that I am back at work this week though.

The Radio Free Nintendo crew make it obvious most reviewers aren’t playing more than one time through. Their main issue came to light in subsequent playthroughs (without going into spoiler specifics). Apparently another issue is that the main decision that effects what route you’re on and what ending you get comes 40 minutes into the game (making course corrections almost impossible since you play most of the game before knowing what path you’re on. Some of the worst paths seem to end abruptly and every new game plus requires you to play the tutorial every time.

I'm having a blast with this game. Been playing a few hour per day and it is getting better and better. Easily my favorite FE game since Birthright.

I changed my mind after reading several reviews that raves about the school parts and how that improves in the building up a party and getting to know the characters part of the game as that was my favorite part of Awakening and Birthright.

Glad I did as I’m around 10 hours in and been having a blast!

I don't mind being a professor but a lot of the quests are stupid and feel pointless. Deliver this to this person, go here and do this, etc... reminds me of Yokai Watch.
