    I think the humour and characters of the games is what brought a lot of new fans during the last title...Awakening was a brilliant game (except the new style of the support system didn't 100% do it for me). It was so light-hearted yet heavy at the same time and the whole FE franchise is proof to me that intense gameplay isn't always needed to create a great story.

    I was scared they were going to be similar just due to the nature that the paths of all the characters are bound to cross since they're, well, at war with each other. But it's good if they're not then...I'd be buying both anyway since I'm a sucker for the franchise... Will you be getting the Revelation DLC after Birthright?

    And ikr, it's so difficult to find any FE fans online because it's just not a popular Nintendo outside of Japan compared to Zelda/Mario/Pokemon..although admittedly I do like it when less people know about these gems
    It's hard to not spoil the games while still writing well about them, so sorry if I don't do the games justice! Conquest is a massive battle all the way through, against your Hoshidan siblings, as well as your Nohrian ones at times. Trying to defeat the evil from the inside is enjoyable but definitely dark at points. Birthright, despite being more lighthearted does bring different tragedies that you have to work to fix, though your Hoshidan siblings are more compliant than your Nohrian ones

    I've actually already finished Revelations and... Damn, it's breathtaking. The storyline is genuinely wonderful with twists and turns at every corner.Conquest is definitely the hardest of all three, whereas Birthright is the "easiest" (but it's still not easy, for sure!) I kinda enjoy having fewer people know of its worth too, it gives it more meaning for me for some reason

    Trust me, nothing could put me off the games
    I think I'd start with Conquest..I feel like it just has a darker feel surrounding it...
    And I love a good tragedy fuelled storyline..one of my friends is actually playing Birthright rn and she was screaming at her DS at one point so I'm so ready!
    I love stories with twists in...I'm so excited now to play all of them omg

    Allow me to join in,That was my first FE game but it wasn't that much enjoyable,The storyline isn't that amazing(Then again most people don't play FE for Story) but I must admit the animation was good for a 3ds game.I played birthright and conquest,But since Revelations had the strongest story of the three,Might give it a try in the future.

    I also like having fewer people know about a game,Means much more to me that way as well,jRPGs are good in that regard because even though some of them are quite popular and maybe even mainstream in the west,None of my classmates care about them.Its oddly satisfying for whatever reason.

    Maybe they guessed? Or decided they couldn't take the risk in case you were?
    Probably

    Maybe I failed their screening test too

    It's just bad how I can't even relate to those 'end up at MDs after failing' memes anymore XD

    I feel the same - I think I got around 87/100 for unit 4 - so 114ish/120 ums and 85/100 for unit 5 so 110ish/20 ums

    It wasnt hard just different but loads of people found timing an issue. That NMR 9 marker was fairly easy as well - although LOADS did a tertairy alcohol - luckily i got it correct!!! There were loads of questions which required thinking like the "when propanone concentraion increases by 100 whats the rate eq" and others.
    do you remember the structure for the 9 marker? Every structure I saw on the unofficial MS was incorrect in one way and the tertiary alclhol seemed the most correct (even tho the question said it can't be one)
