I know there will be times in our life when a huge truck just slams at your face. Leaving you paralyzed on the asphalt floor thinking could you have avoided it... Well, my truck struck me recently. My external hard drive is no longer functional and with it my everything, well almost: works, videos, anime collection, movies, photos, photoshop tools, cosplay plans/research, portfolio, music collection and some unmentionables. So... its quite alot.
Took me awhile to accept the fact that alot of preserved memories are gone. Took me even longer to accept that I have to work with the little resource I have in the PC. Everything is saved in the external, Everything. Feels weird that I have to start everything from scratch. Like a game sequel where the main character has lost all their memories and start a new one.
One lesson I learned from this is that; not everything lasts. In the end, the things you will be counting on is the character you build, the skills you learned, the mind you invested and the body you take care.
>> FIre Emblem Awakening <<
I've gotten a hold of a 3DS and been playing FE Awakening. What can I say about the game? Its completely AWESOME. I don't know where to start; its game mechanics, characters, story but no I won't be spoiling any stories here. I would go as far as saying getting a 3DS is worth it just to play the game. If you like strategy/ rpg games, this is a definite recommend.
You command an army, each with his/her own story, character, strengths and weakness. Moving through a tiled terrain trying to get the best advantage as you can against your enemies. High level monsters can be toppled down with a well placed strategy. Be careful though, because if you make one wrong move a character can get killed, they will be dead as in literally dead (Classic Mode) and no Phoenix Down can save them. Exciting isn't it? >
The game features a date/marriage system where you and some of your units can get married if you constantly pair them up in battles. Whats the advantage? They will help each other more often in battle, gives higher bonuses and bear kid/s. The kids will inherit some of his/her parent's stats and skill so some little math is involved if your into that kind of thing. It has some DLC but the game is already well packaged that the DLCs are extra plays to further your already awesome FE experience. I can go forever with this FE thing but I'm going to drop it and just say: bottom line, its a game worth playing.
Currently at Chapter 18, Hard Mode, Classic. Nearing the end of the story (Chapter 25 maybe? Didn't spoil myself that far) and now taking my sweet time trying to recruit all of the game's characters. Might try Insane Mode after as most hardcore Fire Emblem players says this is where FE should be played, I don't know but I like challenges.
