Ha! You need to get NAtURAL DOCtRINE and find out what a hard SRPG actually is.


From what I've read, the difficulty in that game arises more from horrible design than from actually challenging gameplay. Also, and with regard to strategy games...

Hardcore = everyone who has completed Nectaris: Military Madness (PS1)
Casual = everyone else

The PS1 version has the Turbo version on it (with the original graphics, if you prefer them). To unlock it, however, you have to plow through one hard campaign and one brutally hard campaign first. (The second campaign is so hard that it is a relief when you finally get to play the relatively "easy" original.)

47. Fire Emblem Fates: Revelation - 3DS - April 14

I'm sure everyone here has played a Fire Emblem game at some point, so I'm gonna cut to the chase here. Revelation is the third path of Fire Emblem: Fates and the "true" path for the story. It's also only available via download as DLC rather than a stand-alone physical game like Birthright and Conquest (damn it, Nintendo, I wanted three separate game cards!).

Without spoiling anything, you refuse to side with either Hoshido or Nohr, instead stubbornly insisting on winning the trust and support of both kingdoms' royal siblings to form NATO a grand alliance to fight the evil forces of the Warsaw Pact a mysterious hidden enemy.

In terms of difficulty, this was the Goldilocks path; Birthright was way too easy, Conquest was way too ball-busting difficult, but Revelation is just right. Except the Endgame chapter. That map abused me in ways unfit to discuss in good company. The story is pretty rock solid, too, and with both royal families as well as certain things I won't mention that you don't discover until towards the end of the game, there are lots of opportunities for glorious incest waifus and husbandos.

I, personally, don't think Fates was as good a game overall as Awakening, but it is a damn good entry for the series and totally worth playing for fans of SRPGs. If you have all three paths on one card (either through the super-rare limited edition or buying the other two as DLC), you get special "path bonuses" including items that let you turn units into either a Dread Fighter or Dark Falcon (I think that was what it was called; super awesome black pegasus rider). Using the Dread Fighter item is, as a side note, the only way I found to make Mozu useful, but dear sweet baby Jesus, she will absolutely REK your enemies if you make her a Dread Fighter and level her up.
