Fire Emblem Fates

Yesterday’s Nintendo Direct brought some interesting details on many upcoming Wii U and 3DS titles. Among the games finally receiving a release date for North America is Fire Emblem Fates, the latest entry of the Fire Emblem series released in Japan as Fire Emblem If. Nintendo confirmed again yesterday that Fire Emblem Fates will be released as two different versions, with a Special Edition of the game including both versions as well as the third story path called Revelation, also becoming available on the same day.

If you’re thinking about getting Fire Emblem Fates and want to pre-order it as soon as possible you will be happy to know that both regular editions of the game, Fire Emblem Fates: Conquest and Fire Emblem Fates: Birthright, as well as the Special Edition are now available for pre-order on GameStop. All three versions of the game will be released in North America on February 19th 2016.

UPDATE: The Fire Emblem Fates Special Edition is now sold out online on GameStop but it’s apparently possible to still pre-order it in stores, according to online reports.

Not counting the Revelations story path, Fire Emblem Fates has also received plenty of DLC content in Japan following its release. Among the released DLC maps for the game are maps that have been taken from previous entries of the series. One of these maps, called The Witch’s Trial, is especially interesting as it awards upon completion a special seal that can be used to turn female units into the Witch class. Nothing has been said about the release of the DLC content for Fire Emblem Fates in the West but more on the matter is surely going to come in in the future.

Fire Emblem Fates is now available in Japan. The game will be released on February 19th 2016 in North America and on a yet to be confirmed release date in Europe exclusively on Nintendo 3DS. More on the Western release of the game will be coming soon so stay tuned for all the latest news on the upcoming role playing game developed by Intelligent Systems.

Helldivers 2 Players Face Overwhelming Hordes of Factory Striders

In the ongoing conflict against the Automaton invasion fleet, the Helldivers 2 players have successfully halted their advance. However, the situation has now reached a tiresome stalemate. Yet again, the machines refuse to take a break from their relentless pursuit of progress, with reports emerging of the Factory Striders being deployed in record-breaking quantities.

There have been reports of alleged machines that were supposedly encountered during Operation Swift Disassembly, which was just the beginning of a larger campaign. However, these accounts should be taken with a grain of salt, as they are unverified and seem to be more on the imaginative side. Factory Striders have gained a reputation as formidable weapons platforms that can produce more Automatons while enduring significant damage. If the machines are able to withstand such a relentless assault, it will be necessary to develop innovative strategies.

Have you come across groups of Factory Striders in Helldivers 2? Which strategies are proving to be the most effective in taking down these armored brutes? The Orbital Railcannon Strike will prove to be a valuable asset in the comments section below.

Todd Howard affirms that the timeline of the Fallout series is coherent and well-constructed

The recent release of Amazon’s adaptation of Fallout has ignited a renewed interest in the series and brought attention to the captivating alternate history that forms its foundation. Fans have expressed concern that the TV show’s events might be at odds with the plot of the Obsidian Entertainment video game New Vegas. Warning: Spoilers ahead for New Vegas and Amazon’s show!

Bethesda Game Studios director Todd Howard and Fallout TV executive producer Jonathan Nolan recently sat down with IGN to discuss the timeline. Howard was taken aback when showrunners Graham Wagner and Geneva Robertson-Dworet presented him with the surprising concept of obliterating Shady Sands, the bustling capital of the New California Republic, in the aftermath of the events in New Vegas. Howard eventually warmed up to the idea: “After discussing it, we realized that this could be a significant story moment that many things hinge upon.”

It seems that they had to make some tough decisions to ensure everything fell into place, but Howard emphasizes the importance of preserving the integrity of the Fallout timeline: “We take great care with the timeline. There seems to be some confusion in certain areas. However, all the events from the previous games, including New Vegas, did occur. We take great caution in that matter. We’re really pushing the limits here, but the explosions occur right after the events of New Vegas.

What are your thoughts on this? Is it up to par? Even though it may not have a significant impact on the overall quality of the games or show, it is comforting to know that those in charge are paying attention. We value your feedback and would love to hear your thoughts in the comments section below.

Evaluating Fallout 76’s Value in 2024

If you’ve been keeping up with the new Fallout show on Amazon Prime, chances are you’ve been relying on PS Plus Extra and PS Plus Premium to access and enjoy one of Bethesda’s legendary RPGs. We decided to bypass the highly acclaimed Fallout New Vegas and Fallout 3, opting instead to explore the vast landscapes of West Virginia in Fallout 76. Infamous for its initial reception, Todd Howard’s “Fallout with Friends” has evolved significantly over the past six years. However, does that imply the game is of high quality? Is it worth playing in 2024?

As we ventured out of Vault 76 for the very first time, we were determined to find the answers to those burning questions. Recalling our escapades on the Push Square YouTube channel, we encountered quest-giving NPCs—a feature that was surprisingly absent upon release—awe-inspiring bases built by fellow players—and an abundance of loot that could easily burden us 76 times over.

In the midst of the vast array of open-world online experiences, we found ourselves quite enthralled by the combination of 50s classics playing in the background as we obliterated the heads of ghouls. And to top it off, we were able to enjoy all of this with our friends. Exploring the wasteland in the company of a ragtag band of survivors adds a unique element to Fallout 76, setting it apart from other games in the series. However, does it manage to prevent us from uninstalling and transitioning to one of the mainline entries in the series? To discover more, be sure to watch the complete video!
