    How many times- IT'S A TURN BASED STRATEGY GAME NOT AN RPG Nitpicking aside, I already knew I was getting this game, but it's always encouraging to see that the reviews back up what I already knew was going to be an amazing experience. Also, complaining about dying a lot in a FE game is like complaining that there's a lot of jumping on enemies in a core Super Mario game.

    ...What the hell. This has to be the third time in the last week in which I make a post with clearly separated paragraphs, and when posted, everything is shown clustered together. What's going on? ._.

    Glad to see it's not only me experiencing this. I already yelled at GR in the PokeRadar article, so hopefully it gets fixed soon.

    The spacing issue is being looked into, we should have a fix soon.

    People have different definitions of what an RPG is. It's honestly not that big of a deal.

    I feel like I should start trolling, but I won't disgrace such an article with that foulness.

    Have you ever heard the term tactical RPG? As applied to Bahamut Lagoon on SNES and Final Fantasy Tactics (across PSX, PSP, GBA). Fire Emblem falls squarely in the tactical RPG category, it's a turn-based strategy game built on a grid that has full RPG mechanics per unit. So yes, it is an RPG.

    Would you say the comedy is cheesy or just plain crige worthy? I love cheesiness haha. Preordered along with the special edition 3ds

    From what I gathered on the review, it honestly feels more like the reviewer itself didn't like that particular kind of humor, and not that it's inherently atrocious or unfunny. My guess it's that it's a probably very anime-type kind of humor, so that might help you know what to expect, i suppose. Since I personally actually enjoy that style of humor, I don't really find it to be a problem at all.

    Thanks man, and yes i love anime humor as well

    The humor is the broad kind you see in a lot anime. Not super clever, but cute
