But the real question is whether the Fire Emblem Bundle is worth moolah now

- Hype
- Good reviews from the media
- Street date shenanigans (which unintentionally brought more attention to the game)
- Game with production values that basically sells itself

Looking forward to sales numbers.

At this point I'm fairly certain the street-date breaking was almost entirely an intentional ploy to drum up more excitement. I can't prove that, of course, but there's no other reason for them to lock the date down after selling it for a day or two already.

^im going to say its not an intentional conspiracy. For one major reason: its not breaking everywhere.

IGN pros and cons:

+Deep and satisfying strategy RPG gameplay
+Highly customizable experience
+Lovable and memorable characters
+Beautiful and varied visual style
+Perfect for new and old Fire Emblem fans alike

There are no cons


Wait what stopped it from getting a 10/10?


Probably the silly 'lack of feet' complaint. Has IGN ever bestowed a 10/10 before?


I didn't mean it like that.
Aesthetically it's a terribly awkward design choice to have all your characters run around like dual-peg-legged pirates.
I'm sure it makes a ton of things easier on Nintendo's end, but I don't think it's so game-breaking to lower a score.

9.1 average, no scores lower than 8.5

That definitely qualifies as cleaning house, mother of god

Yeah and also got robbed of a 10/10 by IGN.

No cons or negative points in the written review should automatically equal a 10. Their site has fallen so badly the last 5 years.


Oh, this is the most butthurt of all opinions.

To earn a 10, a game should do more than "do nothing wrong." It needs to do everything or most things really, really well. It can make some mistakes, but the overall product should absolutely blow the reviewer away.

^i havnt read the review in question. But i'll say if a review is less than 10, it should list at least one con or drawback. Even if that con is that it didnt do "somthing" as well as it could have.

Next thing you know we'll get a 3DS version of SoE.

...Don't ask who he is. Just don't.

Huh, sounds good.

I'll have to grab it when I've finished my current crop of 3DS gaming. Seems to be much more interesting than that ghastly FE1 remake on DS anyway.

IGN: you can't spell, you know.....

but hey, the next time they give a Nintendo game a "low" score, you'll all go back to hating them again

Nintendo Life: gee, I wonder why they'd rate a Nintendo game so highly.....


Aren't you doing the same thing with IGN?
