  1. Awakening has some of the weakest gameplay and most mediocre writing in the entire series, if you can say it's the "best one", then I question whether or not you're a real Fire Emblem fan that's actually played through any significant amount of these games.

  2. Some FE “Elitists” have to be reminded that everyone is entitled to their own opinions.
    Its ok that you think Awakening is bad , but that doesn’t take away the fact that a lot of people have enjoyed this game.
    Hating on Awakening doesn’t grant you superiority over newcomers, dear FE Elitists . Be more welcoming towards the new up and coming fanbase . Both after Awakening and now after Three Houses . Peace

  3. i think they're forgetting that this is a japanese game and Harry Potter probably isnt very popular at all in that culture, unlike europe and north america, so screw off

  4. Every time someone makes an impression video on this game, they always screw up the name of the divine pulse. It is always divine power or something like that.

  5. No… I must remain clean… my mind isn’t ready for this yet… just a couple more days…. till it is sent in the mail…. must resist… sneak peaks….

  6. Yeah Don’t think I’ll be watching another Game Informer video. What was with all the over sexualization and references to Harry Potter? It’s a school/university…that doesn’t mean they have to get on a magic train to get there, and there is Muggles. My second critique is definitely not the reason I won’t be checking this channel out. It’s the creepy sweaty sexual guy.

  7. I'm so tired of the Harry Potter and Hogwarts comparisons. Is like people have never seen a castle or like they completely ignore what boarding school is.

  8. Guy on the left thinks Fire Emblem is so stupid. He was surprised to hear it would even be discussed as a top 50 game released this year… Top 50…

  9. Its always that one person that makes things weirder than what it actually is…. every damn time 🤦🏽‍♀️🤦🏽‍♀️ he’s definitely one of those people that will find out somebody watched anime & they’ll assume they’re all weird or think they all watch hentai 😐😐😐

  10. The video is informative and I’m actually contemplating to get the game, but the guy on the left is just so bad…he ruins the whole video with his stupid assumptions…bad choice. Other than that I liked the video. Let’s hope this game will be great

  11. This lady said it, Awakening is the best. I wouldn’t know, but maybe this is how people consider ocarina of time the best of the Zelda series. I dunno. I’m just a dumb casual.

  12. “Even with the tea parties are structured with the conversations it’s a little bit of a guessing game.” So… what about that roster option in the pause menu that tells you the likes and dislikes of each character individually?

  13. Game informer again? Seriously what the fuck is with their bad fire emblem coverage admittedly it was mostly the weird pervy guys fault but still…

  14. You mean the persona 5 ripoff? Without Persona ….there wouldn't be a fire emblem on a home console…for the first time since 2007.

    It will succeed on the switch because there are drones who only play on Nintendo consoles and since it is new to them it will succeed.

    Come on we have Nintendrones saying this game will be better than Persona 5……I mean pathetic Fanboys are such an annoyance.

  15. Maybe the woman in the middle entry title is Awakening so let's not blame the only sane people there who at least know a drop of what she is doing. I hope the right person at least used FF Tactic War of Lion if they want a comparison at least the split house is more to Pokemon Go splitting team than Harry Potter since we kinda choose it, not some talking hat. Western said that school and calendar is like Persona but a lot of Japanese game is in school-setting (god, they love it) and have calendar. And the one on left to be mute for the whole talk.

  16. I wish people didn't hate on love/sexuality in games or media. It has to be some creepy or taboo thing to everyone, but they forget that without it, they wouldn't exist to complain about it.

    They claim to like something like Romeo and Juliet where love blossoms against the rules, but hate on the romance in this game. I'll never understand that mentality.

    Yes, it's a teacher/student relationship, but they are close enough to the same age. As long as the teacher isn't forcing favors for grades or something horrible and the attraction is mutual, it shouldn't matter.

    I say screw social norms, because we only get one life. It was creepy and unacceptable to be homosexual like ten years ago untill most people learned that attraction isn't a choice. It took me quite a while to accept that fact, but now I understand it.

    Thinking logically, this should be no different. There is no choice in attraction, so love conquers all.
