15 Ideas for Fire Emblem Switch

Fire Emblem Switch

The upcoming Fire Emblem on Nintendo Switch is currently a complete unknown beyond a vague 2018 release date, leaving fans with a blank canvas to paint our hopes and expectations. Because I am always looking for opportunities to make hilariously inaccurate predictions (*cough* Let’s Predict Fire Emblem Warrior’s Roster *cough*), I present 15 ideas that I would love to see included in the next Fire Emblem.

I namedrop subtitles for almost every Fire Emblem title, so I recommend checking my Overview of the Emblem if you’re getting confused. And yes, I realize that newer games need updated descriptions. That will come sometime soon.

“10 Steps to Story Structure” with Your Lie in April

10 Lies of April Structure 2

Over a year ago, I tried explaining the three-act structure using the anime Your Lie in April, but felt that I didn’t do a decent job at that. And now I’m tackling the writing about writing thing by diving into the ten distinct moments that a story needs. This came from 5 Secrets of Story Structure by K.M. Weiland, available on Amazon’s Kindle for the low, low price of zero. So to illustrate these moments, and strengthen my understanding of them, I’m using Your Lie in April once more.

Needless to say, I’m spoiling the hell out of Your Lie in April. If you have even the smallest interest in watching it (which I highly recommend), hold off.

What’cha Been Playin’? September 2017

WBP Sept

I am so thankful that this week’s post is a What’cha Been Playin’. Between the tragic Vegas shooting, Tom Petty passing away, and my own shit, writing hasn’t been easy. A part of me was tempted to toss out my “Back in One Week” post and allow myself time to deal with these horrible situations, but correct thing isn’t to allow the bad negate something that I enjoy. Maybe allowing myself to focus on a lighter topic such as the games I played last month is good.

10 Favorite Games of 2005 (Plus 7 Others)

Fav Games 2005

I will finish this! I’ve already wrote about my favorite games of 2004 and 2006, but 2005 was skipped because I had a hell of a time writing about these particular games. No idea why.

If 2004 is the king of outstanding gaming years (a debatable claim, but go with it), then 2005 was the runner-up for the title. That year saw Xbox 360 and PlayStation Portable release in North America and Europe, and Nintendo DS gradually found its footing. Although older consoles like PlayStation 2 and GameCube faded into the background as everyone prepared for next-generation consoles, they didn’t depart without dropping a few damn good games. You could make a similar argument for Game Boy Advance, but Nintendo probably claimed it’s because GBA and DS would co-exist. Nope!
