Man, I'm not sure I'd even love some characters as much as I do if they weren't fully voice acted

Mae and Forsyth are like, contendors for some of favourite characters in the series because their line readings have so much personality behind them. I love Forsyth's grandeur and Mae's boastfulness so much. Shoutout to Clair for being the right amount of pompous and Leon for being so flamboyant

Finished Act 2, and I enjoyed Celica's part more than alms in every way except the dungeons (although gargoyles were cool). Celica has the better magic, characters, etc. overall

Im actually enjoying the story a lot more than Fates', though the support convos are GBA Fire Emblem tier (i.e. Hi! Hi! We're battling enemies, but your hair looks nice. Bye! Bye!). The only two I've found remotely enjoyable are Clair pouring ether on Gray in their B level convo and Leon asking "what will I do with a bunch of women" in one of his C support convos (and also "youre not my type" to Kamui).

The NA LE box is massive. I wasn't expecting it to be that big. Haven't played the game yet, will probably do so in the next few days.

From the artbook, Celica's gang look a lot more interesting than Alm's gang, so I'm expecting to like the former more. The dry supports are a bit worrying though. I know some people didn't really like the goofier nature of some of the Awakening/Fates supports, but at least it made several of the characters more likable/less dry.

Yeah it's pretty huge here in Aus as well, thanks to that artbook. Havent looked through it yet because spoilers

Anyway huge open maps are fun and all but I kinda wish when Nintendo 'reimagined' gaiden they added a few more units to the maps + maybe reinforcements. I'm not sure if a 1:1 translation from the original game really works following the standard of modern games' maps. Loved the

I'm only a little bit into Act 2.  Trying not to play too much since I'm going on a trip at the end of the week.  Gonna need something to do.  Myrmidon Gray is pretty awesome.

If this much effort went into a remake of a game I've never played before, I'm really excited at the potential for one I actually have played.

I really want to get this game because it looks like it improves a lot upon the flaws of the original Fire Emblem gaiden. It looks a lot better than Fire Emblem Fates too. I'll probably end up buying it sometime this summer.
