I was rewatching the trailer for Monolith Soft's new game when I finally remembered who Kunihiko Tanaka (the character designer) was. He's the character designer for Xenogears and Xenosaga Ep.1! The fact that he's designing the characters plus the suspiciously similar X at the end have me thinking that this isn't going to Xenoblade Chronicles 2, but perhaps a new Gears or Saga or at least a game taking place in the same universe (despite the fact that they don't technically share the same universe).
Ok, upon closer inspection the X looks a little like the one on the Xenoblade Chronicles logo, however the red makes me think it has more to with Xenogears:

New Fire Emblem Awakening trailer that goes over the class system.
Looks like they've made some Fanal Fantasy Tactics style additions to the job system. Man, just when I thought I couldn't be any more excited for this game.
Sadly I don't remember the gameplay being particularly good.

Now I really do have to get a 3ds and a WiiU and a PS3
Kotaku loved it
IGN loved it even more.
A Quote from IGN's review:
"Fire Emblem Awakening is the most fluid and stunning strategy RPG experience available on a portable, and features the best storytelling and production value of any 3DS game to date."
Or the 20 Reviews that are up on metacritic the lowest score is an 85!
From what the reviews said Fire Emblem Awakening is the kind of RPG I love most of all and it sounds very much like it's the RPG I've always hoped that series could be.
It gives you a bunch of great characters and lets your actions as a gamer effect them. That's why I've always loved that death is permanent in Fire Emblem. In addition, the actions you take with those characters result in different relationships with the rest of the cast. You influence as a gamer really effects the characters in the story. As long as the characters are good, and it sound like they very much are, that is amazing achievement.
It's like what the Persona series does with it's protagonist, but instead it's the whole cast!

I lost my 3DS (along with my arts briefcase) in the subway the other day . There's a chance that it might be in the lost and found but I'm not that hopeful. Gah, it's like torture now that so many great titles are coming out, particularly Fire Emblem!
On Feb. 12th, Ni no Kuni will have a free DLC for the familiar, Draggle. Oh, and this trailer makes want to
So I've got mixed feelings regarding the elder scrolls online...
Which is good as I still hunger for Skyrim DLC. I mean, I'll finally get to play Dragonborne this week (if I manage to set aside Fire Emblem at all) but I expected Bethesda to put out a lot more DLC than it has. It seems like kind of a waste.
