Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn is going for stupid money on some places online. There’s a listing on Amazon where the bastard wants over $100 for it. It’s been slowly vanishing from store shelves out here. I’ve always intended to get it, but I never finished the one for Gamecube, and it’s a direct sequel, so I know I won’t play it right away. The fear of not getting it at all is very strong though.
I love the Fire Emblem games, as I’m sure I’ve already said, but actually sitting down to play one is a lot harder to convince myself to do. Mostly I play handheld games when I’m stuck places. Fire Emblem is perfect for that kind of thing. On a console it’s harder to pick up and put down. Every time I start Path Of Radiance something happens that stops me from finishing. Plus, I won’t save a game if I lose a party member. Death is, as you may know, permanent in that series. I’m no great tactician, so I play levels over and over until I can make it through mostly unscathed. Which leaves me with an unplayed game and an unowned game waiting for my love.
I am a hardcore gamer trapped in the life of a casual gamer.
