After 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim, I'm in for anything Vanillaware makes.

 

Have you played any of their previous games? Easily one of my favorite developers just wish their games were on PC. Fortunately I do have an Xbox so I can get this one.

I tried the demo last night and to me it was very mid. I am a huge Fire Emblem fan and this just seems like a sub-par knock off. If I want this type of game I’ll just play Fire Emblem. I picked up playing FE Engage last night. I’m 37 hours in and closing in on the ending chapters. It’s so damn good.

Don’t get me wrong, I love Fire Emblem, but to me what was exciting about the demo is all the ways it’s different from FE and other turned based strategy games. I like the real time movement and deploying troops like an RTS. It starts out really basic here, but it’s easy to see how that will get more complex and intense in a way that’s hard to do with turn based games. 
 

I also really like building and moving squads instead of individual units. That’s the kind of thing you naturally do in something like FE (move a couple fighters, a mage, and a healer together to take an objective), but it’s much more streamlined here. Finding that unstoppable mix of different unit traits and abilities that all trigger at the right time is really appealing to me. 
 

It’s obvious that they’re more ambitious than being just a Fire Emblem/FF Tactics clone, and I didn’t really understand that until I got a feel for it firsthand.
