Three houses stand together, but when they fall apart, sides must be taken. Will the long awaited return to consoles for the Fire Emblem series be worth the wait?
Fire Emblem: Three Houses
Fire Emblem arrives on Switch.
The Fire Emblem series has been around for thirty-three years. With seventeen core entries and five spinoffs, there is so much ground to cover in this edition of Where to Start.
It’s time to celebrate Fire Emblem’s glorious debut in high definition! Settle in for a fancy tea party, as we explore Fire Emblem: Three Houses with guests Anna, Cassandra, Josh, and Paul.
Anna Marie wonders why we can’t be friends. Jonathan becomes a Marbula One fan. Kelley engages “pants off, games on” mode. And Chris learns that the only person he’s cheating is himself…and his dire gryphon.
In a tough year for many, video games helped provide plenty of much-needed solace, enjoyment, and heart. After taking our usual few weeks to fully digest the past year’s releases, RPGamer is proud to present our Best of 2020 awards.
Anna Marie briefly stops by to tell us about what she’s been playing while recovering. The Series X has a price now, will the PS5 get one this week? Also, PAX is happening!
RPGamer is pleased to reveal that we will be presenting celebratory posts for our favourite RPGs from the previous decade over the next five days. Here are some details on what to expect.
This RPG Cast was recorded in the dark before a dead studio audience. Josh fails at Fire Emblem. Jonathan becomes a rock star. Kelley pines for Garrus. Chris gets spooked. And Anna Marie harvests squid poop. Yeah it’s a weird show.
Anna Marie is finally back (and a little loopy on painkillers). There’s ample fawning for Mass Effect in our Now Playing, as Kelley chooses an unusual romantic encounter! Arguments break out over March and April’s packed release schedule, but a truce is eventually reached.
Following the announcement of Cindered Shadows, Nintendo revealed more details about the upcoming Fire Emblem: Three Houses expansion. The expansion will be separate to the main campaign and feature only a limited portion of the regular cast.
Nintendo has revealed the biggest part of the fourth wave of Fire Emblem: Three Houses’ expansion pass content. Cindered Shadows tells a new side-story and introduces the secret fourth house of the Officer’s Academy.
While Chris destroys Anna Marie’s right joycon (press R to pay respects), the rest of the cast discusses their now playing, the news of the week, and there are still far too many games releasing every week. Please save us.
What’s old is new again as we deep dive into WoW Classic and how the heck did we even get onto this topic again? News from TGS, what games you’re playing in September, and even more releases coming in the second half of the month, please pity our reviewers.
We’re back from PAX and have forty impressions to share with you. We got a cat, Peter’s getting a baby, Kelley’s getting a vacation, Alice got a ring, and Alex got Musou-ed.
While Fire Emblem: Three Houses seems to finally be put aside by most folks, a few are still learning the dangerous pitfalls of gift giving. As usual, cats and Robin Williams are discussed. Then someone pre-orders Pantsu Hunter and someone else tries to shove CDs into an iPhone to get monsters.
Remember your lost days of innocence? Neither do we. Peter, Kelley, Josh, Matt, Chris, and Anna Marie all prove they shouldn’t be trusted with a podcast this week. Then we investigate whether…oh no, look out! Fraulein!
We hope you’re not sick of Fire Emblem: Three Houses from last week, because we’ve got even more this episode. We discuss strategies for raising professor rank and recruiting, in case you need some tips. We also cover a variety of games and their official release dates. Finally, our briefs are more like long underwear this week.
Johnathan, Nathan, and Chris try to figure out the code running behind Fire Emblem: Three Houses. Yokai Watch is coming out again. China has a bunch of cool RPGs. And Persona 5 Royal leaks some more details!
Fire Emblem Three Houses released this week and we’re (almost) all playing it – but there’s a bit of controversy afoot. Pascal talks about poor choices he’s made in other games. And the news section is all twisty, tumbly, and turvy. Now back to our respective waifus, husbandos, and depressing games…sos.
Fire Emblem: Three Houses has brought the tactical RPG series to Nintendo Switch. Players worldwide are now making the tough decision of which house they wish to join.
Fire Emblem makes its eagerly-anticipated debut on Nintendo Switch this week. A new trailer gives a quick overview of Fire Emblem: Three Houses’ Officer’s Academy, where players will act as a tutor for Fódlan’s future leaders.
