Fire Emblem: Three Houses [Switch] - July 26th 2019

Recommended Posts

I started over right away with a New Game+... this time on hard/classic.

 

I felt the game was pretty easy the first time through, and I could steamroll most anything.  The beasts are way more challenging on hard.   I don't think I even realized you could break the shields on all 4 tiles for a mega-stun on my first playthrough.   That is mandatory knowledge for hard mode or you will lose people.

 

Still enjoying the gameplay.  I'm almost to the half-way point so I'm excited to see how the story diverges now that I'm in a different house.

Does the story ever get annoying where you just want to get to the next battle and you're like "Shut the f up already."   I know that's the case in most games for me actually.  But I think this game has a heavy emphasis on narrative so I'm not sure how that would play with me.

I finally succumbed to Mark’s nagging and bought this for myself over the Christmas period. With about twelve hours clocked so far I’m delighted to say that I’ve found myself loving this game. I’d only planned on playing for an hour this evening and found myself giving up three.

 

I typically find these kind of jrpg affairs somewhat bewildering, and certainly I do find a lot of the menus, stats and so forth intimidating, but the core gameplay itself nevertheless manages to be extremely accessible in ways I had not expected (thanks in no small part to the more forgiving gameplay settings you can choose I’m sure). 
 

I’m so charmed and amused by the school life (what is something of a sexy Hogwarts) and teaching angle of it all, and all the characters and interactions therein. I’m glad for my first play through I opted not to allow students to stay dead should they perish in battle as I think I’d be mortified to permanently lose any of them.

Finished my first play through. What a brilliant game this is! I can’t remember the last time I played a game that makes such a compelling argument for revisiting and playing through in a completely different way. There’s clearly enormous value and longevity to this one, and that’s not even accounting for the DLC. I’ll definitely return to it in the not too distant future.
