Like Andrew and the others, the mid-storm calm that is post-print deadline, pre-E3 is a chance for me to catch up lulled projects. Namely, in this case, all that I’ve started on handhelds and abandoned. Fire Emblem: Awakening, Bravely Default, and Ys: Memories of Celceta all fell by the wayside these past few months. But a distinct lack of anything else to play beyond Titanfall and my other current favorite time-sink, reading, provides an opportunity to remedy this.
Of the bunch, Fire Emblem is what I’m most keen on getting back into. Not sure why. I suspect my reading rotation—fantasy novel, sci-fi novel, Literature or non-fiction, repeat—might’ve sparked anew some interest in Awakening‘s setting and strategy driven nature. And of the bunch, it’s the one I’m most LTTP.
