What does the community think of Fire Emblem Heroes?

Nintendo's second foray into the mobile gaming market seems to have a bit more panache and aggression packed into it. Loads of freebies to get started, a rotation of characters to earn, and just a few weeks after launch we got a new selecti...   read
