Hard to believe it has been two years since I joked about using Fire Emblem Heroes as a surrogate for not going to the beach despite living in Southern California. Even harder to believe I still don't go to the beach nearly as often as I should. But at least Fire Emblem is still here … Continue reading Summer returns in Fire Emblem Heroes

Fire Emblem: Days of Future Past
Within a few days, Intelligent Systems announced the 3.6.0 Update to Fire Emblem Heroes — which includes "revival banners" for discontinued 5 Star heroes — and this Awakening child unit banner. Considering the 2019 summer-themed heroes are right around the corner, I have come to the conclusion that the developers just desperately want our wallets. … Continue reading Fire Emblem: Days of Future Past
She’s Mythic and divine
In Fire Emblem, some of Humanity's greatest heroes wield a legendary weapon known as the Falchion that is imbued with the power to cut through dark forces and the dragons who often wreck havoc. Alm, the Saint-King of Valentia, bore Falchion when he struck down a being of pure chaotic power. Marth, the Hero-King of Archanea, … Continue reading She’s Mythic and divine
Furries? In my Fire Emblem? It’s more likely than you’d think.
After we got our first round of beast units in Fire Emblem Heroes, some Intelligent Systems employee decided to head off everyone's cravings by adding all of the Fates beast units in one fell swoop. To be fair, I'm absolutely one of those people who has been waiting for the Kitsune and Wolfskin to be … Continue reading Furries? In my Fire Emblem? It’s more likely than you’d think.
A smashing blast to the past
Gotta love tentpole programming. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is officially out today! Even though I haven't personally gotten my hands on it just yet, by all accounts it promises to be a fantastic collection of all the greatest parts of the series' 19-year history. I'm excited to get my hands on this sucker, because I've been … Continue reading A smashing blast to the past
‘The Jonathan Banner’: Shapeshifters and Aching Blood
Nothing like the smell of a fresh Fire Emblem Heroes banner in the morning. This Brave Redux banner, essentially a rehash of the Farfetched Units idea from last year, immediately holds a very special place in my heart. Because it is quite literally the definition of a 'cuck my friend Jonathan' banner. For years he … Continue reading ‘The Jonathan Banner’: Shapeshifters and Aching Blood
Don’t Sleep on this Legendary Dragon
Remember that last Fire Emblem post I wrote where I said it seemed like Intelligent Systems was releasing banners at a mile a minute? Well... Here's Legendary Tiki's banner. Insert confetti hurray noise from Halo's Grunt Birthday Party here. Tiki — Legendary Dragon Skill Set: Divine Mist (Might = 16, Range = 1) Effective against … Continue reading Don’t Sleep on this Legendary Dragon
The Hero-King Reigns
The original Hero-King, legend of Archanea, first champion of the Falchion. There are many ways to describe Marth. He's a vastly popular character, essentially the face of the entire Fire Emblem series. Hell, Marth being included in Smash Bros. Melee (alongside Roy of course) is a major reason why the Fire Emblem series started to … Continue reading The Hero-King Reigns
Legendary Lucina Lights the Way
There's nothing quite as good at getting me back in the easy writing mood as a Fire Emblem Heroes update. Particularly when there are new units involved. Not sure how excited I am to similarly embark on the journey of writing about the fuller version update that's coming in a couple of days. But hopefully … Continue reading Legendary Lucina Lights the Way
Did Intelligent Systems forge a fun event?
As many of you know, I consider myself something of a Fire Emblem Heroes recorder. I've been following the game since its humble beginnings and quite enjoy taking note of different things that come to it on behalf of Intelligent Systems. New summoning focuses. Major version updates. Chronicling the game's ever-expanding plot. And of course … Continue reading Did Intelligent Systems forge a fun event?
