Fire emblem- birthright/conquest

Finally got my hands on the new fire emblem and im loving it. Couple complaints however.

 

1. The choice we keep hearing in the comercials about choosing the path of the game is very misleading. Birthright and conquest are two seperate games that follow there own specific paths. You cant choose your path unless you buy the game you want then need to buy the other if you want to explore the second and soon third story lines. Which is a complete 180 to every other fire emblem game before these.

 

2. Youd have to be insane or suffering stockholms in order to agree with the story line of conquest. Seriously, you side with your kidnappers who kill your mother and a big chunk of a city with you intended to be a suicide bomber. Oh almost forgot the being locked in a fortress for a decade on top of it. Who the heck would side with that side of the story. I was thinking the storyline would have actually been a choice between blood or bond like you were sent off as a fosterling to the neighboring land and war breaks out and actually choosing between friends and familiy.

 

I ended up getting conquest since it was the only one actually in stock anywhere in my city lol. Ill play it and enjoy the always good gameplay but ill prob download birthright later for another 30$ and never touch conquest again.

Me behave? Seriously? As a child I saw Tarzan almost naked, Cinderella arrived home from a party after midnight, Pinocchio told lies, Aladin was a thief, Batman drove over 200 miles an hour, Snow White lived in a house with seven men, Popeye smoked a pipe and had tattoos, Pac man ran around to digital music while eating pills that enhanced his performance, and Shaggy and Scooby were mystery solving hippies who always had the munchies. The fault is not mine! if you had this childhood and loved it put this in your signature!

I don't think the choice was that misleading. In all the ads etc I've seen its been chose your path chose your game kinda phrasing and as soon as you look up any detail about the game or see it in a shop it is quite clear there are two games.

 

As for the conquest story line - all 3 story lines kinda have their screwed up elements, but at heart the choice is very real you are tied to one family by blood and the other because you grew up with them so both offer a legit choice much of the bad stuff they did is kinda "long forgotten history" and not directly linked in to the "siblings" you grew up with that take the lead in the story so it is possible to disconnect what the elders of that family did with the emotional investment in the "sibling" figures.

 

I'll admit in terms of personal preference Birthright is definitely more appealing, but Revelations is the real amazing story that seems to be the lore ending based on how things turn out.

Yeah, you're definitely siding with the siblings more than the older generation. It does slip up a bit in some places (as every FE game does) but it does feel like the plot of Conquest took those elements into account more than past games have. Much prefer to play a game about complex characters making the wrong decision than one about perfect cardboard cutouts making the right decision (sorry Robin and, to a lesser extent, Ike).

 

Finished Conquest (normal/classic -> casual), still need to get through Birthright (hard/classic, on like chapter 8) and Revelations (thanks SE copy).

Nother thing im finding is its bloody hard to level up your lower class charecters. Theres no training tower or random monster spawns like in the previouse games to help level them unless its in dlc, havnt checked it out yet. There is the castle defense but theres so few of them to actually make much use of it.

 

Still want to go and b slap my avatar in conquest....i will bring peace to the world! But im to much of a chicken to stab my insane, possesed father in the back so lets go murder entire tribes and citys instead! So i can justify murdering him with my siblings later even though they all already agree with me that father has to be stopped....
