    Just curious if anyone else has picked up this little strategy game, yet..

    It's from the same people who gave us the "Advance Wars" games, and "Fire Emblem" DOES hold a resemblance to those games..Though, instead of tanks and troops and aircraft, you're using knights and pegasus' and wizards..


    There are two key differences, however: an RPG-style experience system that allows your units to level up as they see more and more combat

    AND

    The fact that you, when you lose a unit, there is no replacing it.. It's gone, toast, capute for the rest of the game..



    So far i'm enjoying the heck outta this one..

    Anyone else playing it?

    No, but I know the series is older than Advance Wars, at least in Japan.

    What with two characters being in Smash Bros. Melee and all. :p

    ..yeah, i've heard about how this is a long running series in Japan..

    I tells-ya, i SHOULD have been born a Japanese.. My taste in videogames is much more in-line with what they play over THERE then it is with what we play over here...

    I'm planning to pickup the game as soon as I can find it here :)

    ..so i'm slowly making my way thru this game.. (up to Chapter 14)



    Goodness, do i love it!

    Favourite characters so far:


    Sain (the destroyer!), Marcus (who could take out an entire map of grunts on his own), Erk (wish you got to play as him, more..), Matthew (i hated him at first, but wow, his counterattacks are pretty nifty), Lowen (see Sain) and Guy..

    Not sure why, but i have absolutely zero use for the Pegasus Knights.. just TOOOOO susceptible to Bowmen...Basically, i just use them to cross mountains and visit villages..

    Also, i get kinda mad at how weak the leadesrs (Lyn and Eliwood) normally are..


    Have to say i'm enjoying this game more then "Advance Wars" (and i loved Advance Wars)...
