And if I do get into trouble later on, the map feature could help me catch up if needed.
    My experience with the Risen on the world map is that they are of much higher level than your party, and the fact that you can only go in with so few units makes it tricky.

    If it had been a 3DS XL I probably would have bought the bundle. I can't go back to using a regular 3DS though.

    Oh. My. GODS! Since Melee, Marth has always been my main in the Super Smash Bros. series. I'll never be able to play as Marth with a straight face ever again. Hope the next game takes Fire Emblem Awakening into consideration.

    Anyways, I'm addicted and have put in 6 hours already. Playing on normal and haven't lost a man yet (I don't think I should be proud of this). Can't wait for more DLC. Still wish that there was an online versus mode but if life gives you lemons; make lemonade. Still a great game, if any of you are into strategy games, pick up Fire Emblem Awakening along with some cash for the Nintendo eShop.

    Just who to upgrade...

    Meh, I think I can handle it, but one question: can you retreat from a skirmish-type battle, as in the Sacred Stones? Not like it would change my opinion on difficulty too much, but it may deter me from sending in too many weaker units then. Maybe I'll have to invest in a few extra healers, though I know I'll be using Ricken, as a Sage, and I may fit Cordelia as a Falcon Knight as a backup. Man, I am planning way too much.

    I'm still hoping for the Pika 3ds xl. But I understand, the same happened with me when I purchased my dsi xl.

    You can exit any battle before you start it, but once you start it you have to finish it.

    Since the demo isn't going to be coming out in Europe any time soon, I watched a playthrough of it, the game looks really good.

    Only complaint is the voice clips are used too often, leading to conversations of "hm what huh hmm er uh hmm really?" (or my favourite "You may call me Marth" "Really?" "No.") or Crom saying "Are you ready?" 5 times a minute.

    (Also does anyone know where you can find the sprites used for the character's map icons? FE wiki has a few, and they're so adorable and stuff.)

    All this and more on my tumblr!

    I'm waiting for the blue spotpass spot to appear, but it hasn't yet. When do I get to see it?

    I imagine you go to Chapter 4 to get the DLC?

    Kind of unbelievable to...well, believe that Normal is Hard and Hard is actually Maniac/Lunatic in Radiant Dawn.

    I've read that early units have some NASTY issues fighting enemies during the first chapters...

    Ah, thanks! And it looks like I've got my copy now! I'm glad to finally be able to start my game, and I've gone with Hard, which I don't regret yet. I'm now on Chapter 4, after getting Donnel who will be a pain to level any more. I don't think I'll be using him this run.

    Oh yeah, Meg and Fiona are infamous for that, rendering them absolutely useless on the higher difficulties. Edward and Nolan are two of the few units with fantastic potential in the Dawn Brigade portion, but they fear being RNG screwed early on, especially Edward. Most of them are worth the effort, though, if you can get them strong, that is.

    Don't remind me. Before I restarted (after chapter 2) I had lost two men already. No less, it's easy on Normal later on. I despise rubberband AI.

    The scene where the mask came off wasn't a surprise to you? What's more surprising is that your ahead of me. Did you let some of your units die?

    Ah yes my 3DS Bundle shipped today.

    So as someone who will be playing Awakening in around a week and hasn't played a Fire Emblem game since FE7 on the Game Boy, what has changed? Besides the stuff in Awakening like marriage and everything, I know about that.

    No, I never let units die. I'm only a chapter ahead of you, I haven't had the opportunity to play much, though.

    Weapons don't have weight. That's about it. Abilities will be strange since you didn't play the two Gamecube Games, but they're easy to get used to.

    That's had me puzzled. At first I thought someone just placed the models too far into the ground, then they started walking.

    Hydrohs, thanks for spoiling it for me, but you need to learn how to use spoiler tags correctly.

    It's not that much of a spoiler, you find out Marth is A CHAR about 6 chapters in.

Started a new game on Hard though (this time, like in Pokemon Black 2, gender-bending) and like we all know, the difficulty feels much better after chapter 4. Already had Chrom propose to my character.

    What? "Haven't had the oppurtunity to play much"? I had punched in half a day of game play to come up to your spoiler (which I encountered before reading your spoiler).

    I'd put in about 10 hours at the time, not as much as I'd have liked what with having the game for three days.

    Yeah, that's a typo, if I recall correctly. That's Mist's info, but for some reason, Muarim has it. I was totally confused by that when I first saw that, especially having not played Path of Radiance first.

    I feel like I'm spending too much time level grinding, but the sheer amount of enemies on Hard levels up some of my units like crazy. That hasn't stopped the enemies from putting my Avatar and Chrom, both lv. 18, in some dangerous spots. I'm now going to Chapter 8, after I finish the 3rd side chapter, but I thought I'd try to have some fun with the Spotpass characters. Looks like they're way too strong now, despite the low level of the some of the leaders.

    Finally picked up this game, but I'm holding off on playing it until I finish my HW. Sounds amazing from what I've heard though.
