Happy Friday everyone!
There’s been plenty of buzz about the Switch Lite, and Rachel and I will share more of our thoughts on that later next week. In the meantime, considering the Lite is purely a handheld console, I dove back into my bucket of 3DS games to reminisce on some of my favorites.
Fire Emblem: Awakening
Awakening is one of the games at the top of my favorite “Fire Emblem Games” list. I enjoyed the characters and the more involved role the avatar took in the game. The child unit angle was interesting as well and, in my opinion, done much better than the Fates trio of games did. Ever since I’ve played Sacred Stones, Fire Emblem has been an enjoyable franchise, and Awakening has gotten quite a few play-throughs from me.
Kind of just rediscovered this game, but if you never played it, it’s a great little casual RPG starring your Mii and whatever other Miis you want. It’s a little silly, story-wise, but the creativity, music, and the art style of the backgrounds are brilliant.
Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Spirit of Justice
The Ace Attorney games are all great, but I really enjoyed coming back to the familiar characters when Spirit of Justice came out a few years ago. It gave some satisfying conclusions to some of the characters, despite Rachel and me being worried about it being one of the “final” Ace Attorney games with Phoenix and company. It probably is, if I’m being honest, but I’m hopeful for more.
