The long-awaited cake

As usual, I am late to try trends. This is also the case, when I started to play Portal in 2011 instead of 2007 when it first came out. Oh well.

FireΒ Emblem!

Hello hello!

Recently I’ve gotten stuck again on Fire Emblem. πŸ˜€

I had played it some years ago, and had really liked and enjoyed it then. I’d played the two GameBoy Advance games, Fire Emblem: Rekka no Ken (Blazing Sword) and Fire Emblem: Seima no Kōseki (The Sacred Stones). One day as I was searching for some image, I stumbled on the image of one of the characters and it re-ignited the flame! πŸ˜€


It’s fun! Even though on Normal mode it is pretty easy to beat, but I like very much that it is more personal, not cold and impersonal as many games are. You get to know the characters, get to feel affection for them … Along the lines of normal and not obsession for fictional characters, I mean. πŸ˜›

Here are some screenshots from the cover box art, and the gameplay:

This is when there is a fight:

This is from Sacred Stones, but looks almost the same as the previous, Blazing Sword:

Here are some of my favorite characters!

Lyn, because I can just imagine her being a real-life close friend of mine… She is compassionate, friendly, generous, helpful, kind… Plus she looks cool!! πŸ˜€

Eliwood… Because he’s a Lord like Lyn, and they go together! Plus he’s hot! πŸ˜› Well yes, he’s also kind, generous, etc. etc. πŸ˜›

Joshua, because he’s a Myrmidon, plus super cool and hot! I mean, come on, look at that stance… The billowing cloak, that confident look… That flaming red hair… It just re-ignites my Reno fancy πŸ˜€

Erk, the mage!!! Because, he’s a mage, and he has purple hair!!!!!! End of discussion! πŸ˜€

Hector as well, because he’s Eliwood’s best friend and a cool guy to be around. πŸ˜‰

Damn, there are many others, but I don’t remember them yet because I haven’t played the whole game of Blazing Sword yet (and more will be recruited), and I haven’t re-started to play Sacred Stones, so I cannot remember characters that I liked years ago. πŸ˜›Β  (Except Joshua πŸ˜€ ❀ )

Here are the “mug shots” of the characters in Blazing Sword (the one I am currently playing). You can clearly see Eliwood, Hector and Lyn in the first three sprites πŸ™‚ Erk is in the third row). I just think this image is great, colorful, pixel art, and vibrant! πŸ˜€

I mean, come on, how can you not like the good guys (and girls)?! They are all so good-looking, beautiful, with amazing outfits and vibrant-colored hair!!!! Sniff…. Why can’t real-life hair be like that…. 😦


It’s an unrequited wish, I know.

Off-topic: I made Sloppy Joes yesterday!!!! YUM! πŸ˜€ I haven’t eaten it in yeaaars, I had missed it a lot! My mouth is drooling just thinking about it again. πŸ˜€ Maybe I should visit the kitchen. πŸ˜› I took a picture of the dish I made, so when I transfer it to the pc I’ll post it here! πŸ˜‰

Have you played Fire Emblem? πŸ™‚ If yes, let’s share our passion together! πŸ˜€
