Review: Fire Emblem: Three Houses

So I’ve put over 70 hours into Fire Emblem: Three Houses – probably the most time I’ve dedicated to a single game since Assassin’s Creed Odyssey last year. I’ve still not completed my first route (Blue Lions represent!) but I’m closing in on the end. I don’t know when I’ll get to the second and third playthroughs for the other houses, but I legitimately want to see everything from the other perspectives. That’s how engrossed I am at the story level.

The mechanical level has also hooked me, obviously. Three Houses is the best Fire Emblem has ever been on the tactical battle level. Critical battle information has been streamlined and made much easier to access. Leveling up your characters outside battle is also more engaging and you have a lot more options at your fingertips to create bonds between your characters. And the characters are all stellar. I love the Blue Lion house and their interactions both on and off the battlefield. The recruitment system has also allowed me to nab the characters I like from other houses as well.

I’m starting off glowing about the game, but there are a few low points which I’ll also get to. As a heads up, this review won’t contain any major main story spoilers, but might contain minor support conversation spoilers.

Episode 36 – Jort Party

On this week’s episode of Make Me A Gamer, TMan forces HarveyZ to choose between jorts and Crocs as this week’s Snap. Then HarveyZ details what his perfect game would be like (and it’s not what you’d expect!) before TMan dives into the news of the week. This includes Google’s announcement of Stadia specs, the possibility of Overwatch 2, newly announced Pokemon (Wooloo!), and Darksiders Genesis. Then TMan ends by heaping effusive praise on a lesser-known NES game: Rockin’ Kats! We hope you enjoy! (This episode was recorded June 6th, 2019.)

Episode 35 – Fortspite

Thirty-five whole episodes of Make Me A Gamer are in the bag! On this particular one, T-Man makes HarveyZ choose between Fortnite and fidget spinners, we delve into Dungeons & Dragons thanks to an e-mail question, and then we talk about some hot gaming news like the new Death Stranding trailer and this random new handheld with a crank called the Playdate. Then we finish the episode with a new segment where TMan just talks about a game he likes: this week, it’s Alpha Protocol! Enjoy! (This episode was recorded May 30th, 2019.)

Episode 34 – House of the Rising Tung

We’re back with another wonderful episode of Make Me A Gamer, and not to toot our own horn but it’s one of our best (and weirdest) yet! First, the script is flipped as Harvey Z gives TMan some brutal choices on what to snap out of existence instead of the other way around. Then we answer an e-mail that lets us talk about some of our favorite video game music as well as our “coffee break” games. Finally, HarveyZ fulfills his assignment from last week and breaks down his very complicated personal Pokemon Gym design. It’s a blast, and we hope you enjoy listening as much as we enjoyed recording! (This episode was recorded May 23, 2019.)
