I was just thinking about how I didn't do all that much today, and I looked at PMS and thought I should make the post, but what about? The giant heat dome keeping me indoors? How my whole family went to the All-Star Game but didn't ask me if I wanted to go too? How Fire Emblem: Awakening is pretty addicting and I've played it way too much so far?

I'm about to sell Fire Emblem Awakening. I got maybe 10 missions in and I mostly enjoyed it, but the tension and stress and frustration of having to replay missions if I lost someone really killed my drive to play the game. --- http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v129/ukealii50/kylo.jpg - Thanks uke! http://img193.imageshack.us/img193/829/07kyloforce.png - Thanks Diyosa!
Why not replay on casual mode where deaths aren't permanent? IIRC difficulty and casual/hardcore are different settings, so you can still have hard missions, just ones where you don't have to worry about permanent deaths. --- Fame is but a slow decay. -Theodore Tilton
Yeah, I actually restarted and am playing on Lunatic/Casual. I'm enjoying it a lot more than Hard/Classic, because I don't have to restart as much. It's still hard and I wouldn't recommended Lunatic if you are new to FE, but casual helps. --- "To truly live, one must first be born." ~ Evan [aX] Paper Mario Social: The Safe Haven of GameFAQs.

I wanted to play on Classic to have the "authentic" feel of the game. To be honest, I wanted to play through the game on Easy first but I didn't like that they limited the variety of moves available on Easy mode (I believe you can't even Team Up when playing on Easy, among other things). I wanted to play through it for the story but also get the authentic experience so when I moved up to Hard I would be ready.
I eventually learned to play extremely conservatively in an early mission when I was one turn away from victory but accidentally left one of my weaker characters exposed and then lost three characters on that enemy turn.
The game is fun but way too stressful. I have no idea how the story will go, so I guess I'll look it up or play it again eventually, but I found someone to buy it and am shipping it off on Friday. --- http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v129/ukealii50/kylo.jpg - Thanks uke! http://img193.imageshack.us/img193/829/07kyloforce.png - Thanks Diyosa!
