Doing one region at a time helped me to preserve what sanity I have. I also used a map, which was a huge help. The mask was definitely useful to help hone in on where the Koroks were, and once I knew what to watch out for, it wasn't all that bad. It took a long time, but that was to be expected. The Master Sword Trials were far more stressful and bothersome, but thanks to a guide, I was able to get through the first two Trials with minimal problems and (barely) make my way through the final one.

I don't think I've ever tried Fixed Mode. I actually didn't know that was an option, but it's definitely more up my ally of knowing which characters are going to be useful ahead of time. Of course, it kind of lowers the anticipation of leveling up, since you know what you're going to get, but like you said, it also relieves some stress, which I'd greatly appreciate. I might try it when I play it again (in my never-ending quest for getting a in the stupid thing ).

Heck yeah! Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance finally a FE game I've actually played
How do you think the past entries in the series stack up against this one having played them all now?

FF:POR was my first introduction to the series due to my friend forcing his copy onto me because I was playing too much Pokémon: Emerald Battle frontier
I remember turning it on and being blown away with that opening cut scene, then shortly after by the presentation, 1 life mechanic and the Black knight! having something as intimidating as him show up every now and then was also terrifying (I think I tried to fight him at some point during the escape mission and failed miserably )

That sounds about right, I'm pretty sure if you play as a female character, Tharja just sort of stalks you forever.

I think if Awakening and Fates followed the same path that Genealogy, it would have been a lot more interesting. Since the child units aren't always great, it's sort of a loss if you end up with an archer who has a maxed out magic stat and that's it. And I blame this on being new to the series, but I was already so adjusted to the units I had, introducing more just seemed like a recipe for disaster.

I'm impressed you've come so far already without getting burnt out. I avoided Fire Emblem for so long after Fates since playing the same game three times in a sense, was really tiring. I'm curious to know about how the whole Erika and Ephraim works, but I'll be getting to that game soon enough!

I also look forward to see how you'll set up your army in Path of Radiance!

Oh my goodness, that was what I had wanted to do, but I picked a female protagonist. What was she like as a marriage partner?

I agree, I loved the benefits that came with marrying two together who work well and then having all those benefits like a double attack, or dodging attacks but I never really used any of the children and didn't understand the point either. I already had perfectly goo characters, and because of my "marriage for laughs" strategy, the units often weren't great. The best I had was actually in Birthright, I put 2 ninjas together and ended up with a ninja that had ridiculous speed.

I really like that idea for Genealogy of the Holy War, I really hope they keep it for the new game!

Congrats on starting Sacred Stones! I have that one for GBA and that and Echoes are my last two FE titles and I think I'll have finally played everything that came out in the West. I'm really curious to know how it compares to 7.

YUP. I never got around to doing the Tidal Wave grade farming on X360, but now I see why it's so popular and it will be stuck in my head for forever.

Ahh yes. I'm glad you were able to it! I should just mark mine as again too....
Yeah it's a toughie. Still glad I can commiserate with someone if I ever replay HHM... .... Yeah not happening

That is a good Heath! GEEZ. I never get lucky with him!

I didn't really think about it, honestly. It does seem a bit knight-y for a Pokémon game, but considering it's based in "England", I guess it makes sense (ish).

She's been having a good time so far. She started with Ophilia, then went straight for Therion and Cyrus. I haven't given her much guidance aside from the Boost system, so it's been fun to see what choices she makes and who she goes after.

My wife yesterday started counting the days until it comes out. And while I am also definitely looking forward to Three Houses, it can't compare with my hype for Sword/Shield.

On a related note, my wife just finished Binding Blade yesterday, but is upset at herself because she missed an extra chapter (she wasn't really following a guide). When she found out, she kind of went into "Screw It" mode and let a bunch of characters die in the final chapter just to finish off the game. I'm sure she'll go back eventually and get them, but probably not for a while, especially now that she's started dabbling in Octopath Traveler.

I kind of figured that's why everyone just kept helping orphans And I'm sure if you lose a character in the game, it just says something like they died valiantly? Actually, that was one of my favourite things in Awakening. Since it was my first FE title, and I wasn't sure how to correctly 'make' good children, I just married everyone based on how funny it looked. So Tharja married Libra, and he's the one who opens an orphanage. That was so funny to read, of all the people to help take care of children...

And two of every single one also means you're going to be dedicating a huge portion of your home to them, and I can't even imagine how much money it would be as well.

I'm still looking at getting the Seasons of Warfare Edition. Was the European market given the same deal?

Now that you mention it, I do hope they give us some baseline stats that would sort of serve as a basis for saying who should be what. Like someone with a huge amount of speed doesn't need to be a Knight.

Can't recall now, but I wonder if they're keeping the marriage system as well?

And regarding the delay, that was the first thing I thought of! You'd be able to get through everything and not have to interrupt your marathon! It might even mean we could play Echoes at the same time

It's one of the things that made me sort of not pursue any supports. One of the friends I was playing it with has played the game I think 4 times now? He was pointing out the characters that will marry.

One of the things I do still really love about the series is getting the little bios on what everyone did after the war. But given the sheer size of the game and number of characters, there were a couple I had to look up, and realised we never used them once. It was usually to strip their weapons and use them on someone better.

What Amiibos do you have? I only bought one, for Shovel Knight, but I think my partner has a Twilight Princess one. I know a few people that collect them, which is sort of crazy to me. One has two of every figurine, one that always stays in box, and the other is taken out for display/actual use

I have a lot of questions after the trailer. I love the idea of the world, a small continent with 3 rival countries and one large neutral zone. I'm not sure how they're going to set up the three houses, I wasn't sure from the video if you can only pick one house and then you'd have to play the game twice more for a complete?

Also, I really like the idea of making an army from the ground up, assuming that you being the teacher/tactician means you can assign classes in a sense. I can finally make an army that is nothing but thieves

What were your thoughts?

I wasn’t saying that they’re the same, but the graphical style of WW did look really weird at first, just like LANS does. I’m reserving judgment until I play and see it for myself is all.
You'll get no sympathy from me...
