Fire Emblem If changes up series-staple weapon triangle


Magic, bows, concealed weapons
May 19
The lack of weapon degradation isn't the only difference to the upcoming Fire Emblem If's combat. The swords-beat-axes-beat-lances-beat-swords triangle is changing, too, Famitsu reports (picked up by Hachima Kikou and transla... read

The Marth amiibo restock situation doesn't look good at GameStop either


Only a few per store

We've talked about it at length before -- the great Marth amiibo restock of May. Well, it doesn't seem all that great so far. Amazon was trickling out select orders through the day last Saturday (and were, for all intents and... read

In addition to the whole "permadeath" thing, having a limit on weapon uses is one of the most taxing aspects of the Fire Emblem series. You have to constantly decide whether or not it's even worth attacking someone with ... read

When Nintendo announced the Marth amiibo restock for this year, I had a feeling it wouldn't end well. It was originally scheduled for April, then May, and now that the month is here, the publisher is still completely silent a... read

Marth amiibo resurrects in April


Rise from your grave
Mar 02
Nintendo has announced that our lord and savior and one true amiibo, Marth, will be back in stores in late April. A little late for him and his friend Ike to join the fight in Code Name: S.T.E.A.M., which will have already been released in March. Finally, our prayers to Reggie have worked. Praise to Iwata. May our enemies' amiibo burn in hell.  Nintendo [Twitter] read

This Lucina figure is looking pretty damn great


I want it
Dec 08
Japan is getting an amazing Figma figure next year -- Lucina from Fire Emblem: Awakening. It's up for pre-order now from retailers like AmiAmi, and it'll drop in April 2015. I think I'm going to have the mask on permanently -- it looks too cool. Of course, this figure makes me lament the fact that Lucina doesn't have a mask-variant costume in Smash Bros. read
