What baffles me is Advance Wars supposedly selling poorly in Japan, yet they eat up Fire Emblem. They're both great tactical titles by the same devs. Do they just wretch at the thought of an srpg that isn't pseudo-medieval European fantasy setting?

Different appeals......you know, with being situated in the other side of the world and all. How well can you expect a game playing up western ideals will do in an eastern country? Some can do well, but those are rare.

Let's just say, if you look at Cole or Shepard under their lense, they look pretty douchey...hell I found characters like those douchey looking.

While characters like Kratos is borderline homoerotic since easterners have the complete opposite gay stereotype there those living in the west.
