People are already saying Uncharted 4 already has GOTY in the bag. And given Naughty Dog's track record, I don't really doubt that at all.

 

And now I remember that I need to actually finish the first 3 Uncharted games... Well, I guess I know what I'm doing for the rest of the day.

 

????????????? but uncharted 4 isnt even out yet

Keep in mind, we're talking about the same industry that gave Dragon Age Inquisition several GOTY awards.

 

It isn't about quality of a title, it's about how much the publisher shells out.

Hey, I cannot wait for Sly Cooper 5 to be announced, or for The Last Guardian to be not dead. And if a game like The Last of Us or Heavy Rain comes up, I'll be all over that :P

Region lock on all non-N3DS models of the 3DS have been broken with an SD card hack.

 

Wonder how long that'll last before being patched out.

Well snap, if I didn't think Nintendo would fix this before the end of the month, I'd import a few games right now.

I'm hoping that they do decide to stop region-locking, nobody else is doing it anymore, and there are more than a few games I'd like to play that aren't coming out here.

Well, if you're going to pick up a N3DS close to launch, I don't see the harm.

I'm really hoping the New 3DS comes out before the update that patches this, so that way I can transfer then not update my old 3DS. I lost Ninjhax to get into the darn eShop, and I'm desperately awaiting a new exploit for homebrew!

So, Club Nintendo is ending this year. Not really surprised, there've really been no good rewards there for years (there are some good VC offerings, but they haven't really had much good exclusive merchandise for ages), curious to see what the last waves of VC games hold (really hoping for some GBA stuff), and I'm also wondering what Nintendo's gonna do in the future with their membership program (as they're apparently gonna replace Club Nintendo with something else)...

Glad that I at least got both Game & Watch collections while they were available... 1600 coins right there...

Just because you won't be able to get it ever again. It's TERRIBLE, but unique!

I've been playing Fire Emblem: Awakening pretty much nonstop for the past few days; just beat Chapter 13, so I guess I'm technically about halfway through the game? 

 

I don't normally play games through more than once, but I might start a new file after this and see if I can get the optimized stat pairings to work for me.

Did Chapter 9 blow your mind? I didn't see that coming at all and was utterly speechless.

Not really - after they faked it out with... Chapter 6 or 7, I forget which one, and then they had the kidnapping, I figured it was going to happen eventually. :P

I'm halfway considering a run of FE:A where I kill off everyone except for MU, Chrom, and Lucina just for the sake of it, but do killed units still appear in the story, or are they just completely dead in your file forever?

 

Anyways, I'd want to finish my extreme run first, but I think I'm stuck on chapter 2 or 3...

Well, both Donnel and Olivia have yet to reappear, so I'd assume they're dead forever everywhere.

Nice. I'd like to see how the story turns out when the main living cast is just 3 characters. :evilgrin:

My copy of Tear Ring Saga for PSX came from a friend in Japan. Haven't had the time to boot it up, but given that it's Fire Emblem in everything but name I'm looking forward to it. Especially since that console gen never got a FE game proper.

 

Also got a copy of Der Langrisser for SNES, which I've been meaning to pick up. Should be fun.

I wouldn't be surprised if they gave you replacement units. Any unit with a major impact on the story is usually safe, and the games can throw you a bone with the spares. I remember Seisen no Keifu will give you replacement units for the second generation, if you fail to get some of the first gens to wed/fall for each other, the game creates replacement units. Shadow Dragon does something similar, too.

Trust me when I say this Nowi + MU is ridiculously broken, especially if you get Nah and Morgan both with Galeforce.

 

Get each of them at level 30 Manakete->lvl30 Dark Flier->lvl 30 Manakete. This should roughly get you to their statcaps, too.

 

I rarely had to use another unit. They are just obscenely broken units, even for how broken FEA is.

Honestly, I'll probably play through a second run just to try out different pairings and strategies... and then after that I'll do an optimized run haha. My plans keep changing, but it's a really fun game. I feel like I'll be playing it for quite awhile.

Big ones I'm wondering about are Lissa and Sumia, as they both have involvement in FMV cutscenes and they both can be killed as soon as you get them.

 

If I end up doing a 3-character run, I'm probably going to have to grind a whole lot with the DLC...

If they are important to the story, then instead of dying, they just retreat from battle. Otherwise, they are dead.

I paired with Nowi my first run of the game because she was a dragon and dragons are cool, and my daughters were totally broken. Nah is easily my favorite unit.

Huh. Disappointing.

 

Kinda wish that who is alive had an effect on the story (alternate endings and such), It'd make me actually want to finish it again.

I know in Rekka no Ken at least, you get a little blurb for each character that changes depending on if they die or not.
