i'm with you. some of the things that i got stuck on the longest were like 'oh yeah there's a hidden block here you have to hit with your hammer. duh.'

i also was sad they decided to put pretty much no story into it. bowser talks zero times, and after world 2 they just stopped putting in quirky and fun dialogue sequences that involved anyone but kersti and kamek (and wiggler, but that was for one world). they could have easily fleshed it out into something memorable, but seemed to choose not to, and in my opinion they chose not to because they wanted to make it 'handheld bite sized.'

that's a very scary prospect; i'm also nervous about this happening in luigi's mansion.

Well Fire Emblem certainly isn't "handheld bite sized," so I'd hope they continue down that path with providing experiences that aren't so fixated on the fact that game is on a handheld system.

If the whole game had been like the forest area it would have been great. It was one of the the only parts of the game that really felt like paper mario other than having my stickers turned into sandles.

I'm not too worried though about future games- at least if nintendo values its feedback and reviews. It seems like most reviewers and players that have a problem with the game have the same general issues.

Hey but the music was pretty good...


...

I do have a question about fire emblem though. Is it possible to turn off the weird sound snipits of grunts/affirmatives/negatives/whatever the characters give at the beginning of every single piece of dialogue? Something about it makes me want to pull all my hair out.

*Chrom voice* Really?

- But seriously, I don't think there's an option for that. Maybe you'd like the Japanese sound clips better? You can change the vocal language in the options. Hmm.

There's an option for that in the in-game menu I believe where you can turn voices off.

Cool, thanks guys. Now I know when I get the game I won't have to mute it.

I also liked those snippets. Game is great!

Also, so Castlevania Lord of Shadow: Mirror of Fate plays pretty nicely/ Gonna be grabbing that ASAP.

Also Etrian Odyssey IV has been grabbed, and I'll comment on it once I get a chance to play more than 10 minutes! Go go, 3DS library!
