Finally, a release date for Fire Emblem Fates
! I only just picked up the series this past summer (I played Awakening
, Blazing Blade
, Sacred Stones
, Radiant Dawn
, and Shadow Dragon
), but I already love it. Which is weird, because I normally don't enjoy RPGs that much. Really the only ones I've tried and liked are the Fire Emblem and Mario & Luigi series. Anyhow, I have preordered my special edition, so now the only thing left to do is to figure out which of the three paths to choose. I've leaned Conquest ever since Xander first appeared, but we'll have to wait and see. And I suppose Revelation is also a possibility, but I'd rather play Conquest and Birthright first.
As for the other stuff, Twilight Princess HD
is interesting, but I don't care too much because 1) I've already set aside my video game money for Fates
, and 2) I can still borrow my library's Wii copy and play it. Wind Waker HD
made sense, since no version of Wind Waker
worked on the Wii U before then. I'm kind of indifferent about it. I like Twilight Princess
, but it's not my favorite, and I don't care for how so many Zelda fans hail it as being "realistic" when it's really just the animesque Ocarina of Time
style with muddier colors. Even so, I probably will try to get it eventually, but if I get a Zelda remake anytime soon, it'll be Majora's Mask 3D
, since it's my favorite Zelda.Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam
looks just as fun as Mario & Luigi games usually are. I'm sure the Paper Mario fans are disappointed that it takes so few gameplay elements from the Paper Mario series. Maybe there'll be a Paper Mario & Luigi
eventually. Personally, I was hoping that the next Mario & Luigi game would feature Wario and Waluigi as the guest protagonists/antagonists, or maybe Peach and Daisy (Mario & Luigi: Double Date
?). Anyhow, I still love Mario & Luigi games. I hope this one lives up to my favorite, Bowser's Inside Story
I know nothing about Final Fantasy VII
, so I don't really care about Cloud. I suppose this means that Magnus from Kid Icarus: Uprising
has even less of a shot than he did before. Which I don't mind, but he's still the first thing that came to mind when I saw Cloud's sword.
I'm not really into Star Fox or Xenoblade Chronicles, so Star Fox Zero
and Xenoblade Chronicles X
don't really catch my interest. (Besides, I'm outta money.) Neither does much of the other stuff. Even so, with plenty of Zelda, Fire Emblem, and Mario & Luigi, this was one of my favorite directs yet.
