Fire Emblem: Three Houses Review

Fire Emblem: Three Houses follows the journey of Byleth, a former mercenary who reluctantly takes the position of a professor at the prestigious Officers Academy. The peaceful world of Fodlan is home to three nations, the Golden Deer, Blue Lions, and Black Eagles – all overseen by the Church of Seiros, who control the academy at the Garegg Mach Monastery. Charged with tutoring the leaders of tomorrow in all things battle and mind, Byleth is tasked with choosing a house and nurturing its students to their full potential.

This sets a promising premise for the 15th game in the Fire Emblem franchise, as players explore a narrative-driven world full of character, emotion, rewarding mechanics, and intense turn-based, tactical combat.

Fire Emblem: Three Houses Review

I would not consider myself a fan of the Fire Emblem franchise. Not because of my lack of awareness of the series or its lack of appeal, but mostly because it has always been a handheld experience. Very few of the games have released on a console-based platform, which is one of the many reasons I was excited for Fire Emblem: Three Houses to launch, finally giving me the opportunity to explore a franchise I’ve long admired from a distance. With that said, let’s see if Fire Emblem: Three Houses is a worthy addition to your collection, whether you’re a franchise veteran or a first-time gambler.

Without a shadow of a doubt, Fire Emblem: Three Houses is a pioneer in the narrative-driven RPG space. It features a colorful cast of deep, meaningful, and memorable characters, many with enough depth and character to rival that of main protagonists in other games. Much of the games plot, mechanics, and features all center around socially-driven engagements with these characters, each presenting more personality and background with every moment of play.

Much likes its JRPG brethren, Three Houses can be dialogue-heavy in parts, but it does so in a way that never feels stale. I truly wanted to learn more about these characters, what motivated them, the losses they had suffered, it’s rare for a games cast to encapsulate me as much as Three Houses did, but it did so every step of the way. These relationships are not merely about forming bonds with characters, almost all of the characters you encounter can be recruited into your house, adding a physical reward to a social experience.

The driving force behind Fire Emblem: Three Houses are the social interactions and these are the focal point throughout much of the game. As the protagonist, you get to choose to align yourself with one of the three houses or eventually, the church. Doing so influences the dialogue, the story, the choices, and the ending you will experience. This all provides a huge level of reward in regards to replay value.

A room of players could compare experiences and discuss stories and events they shared with characters they met, and all could be entirely different. It could be mere happenstance that you connect with one of the characters, or it could be more direct as they share similar morals and character that appeal to you as a player or a person. You may not want to love or hate these characters, but you won’t …

Meet Zane Flynt, one for the new Vault Hunters in Borderlands 3

After introducing Moze the Gunner not too long ago, Gearbox Software has decided to let us finally know about Zane Flynt the Operative, another of the four Vault Hunters that will be playable in Borderlands 3. It´s true that Moze does not have a profile video like the one that was just published for Zane, but we could see her and her mech Iron Bear obliterating enemies in a gameplay video that was shown at the E3. As you can see in the video below, Flynt is a completely different type of character.

Zane seems to be the kind of guy that does whatever is needed to finish a mission. Even though his combat abilities are not explained in the video, we already know that he can unlock three different active abilities as he levels up and progresses through the different skill trees. In previous Borderlands games, each character had only one active ability, and it could be somewhat modified through the skill trees. In Borderlands 3 each of the three skill trees that each character has available grants them a different active ability and they will be able to swap between them.

Hitman skill tree grants Zane the SNTNL ability, which spawns a drone that will fight alongside him. While the drone is active, you can activate the ability again to make it attack whatever you are targeting. The other skills in this tree are focused on improving Zane´s SNTNL, adding Cryo Damage to the pair and boosting Zane’s performance in several ways.

Doubled Agent grants Zane an active skill that will remind you of Jack and Zero. The ability spawns a stationary Digi-clone that will shoot at enemies, but if you activate the ability again while the clone is up Zane will swap positions with it. The other skills int he tree boost the clone and add extra effects when Zane and the clone swap positions.

Under Cover will let Zane spawn a barrier similar to the ones that Axton can get on his turrets. This version is like a shield that he can either deploy or pick up and carry, protecting him from incoming projectiles and allowing him to shoot through it for extra damage. This tree also provides Zane a few boosts that he can share with nearby friends through the use of the barrier.

As you can see, Zane is quite a versatile character whose skills will allow for very different gameplay styles. The combination of very powerful active skills and a preference for Cryo Damage leaves us with a well-rounded character that will be a great asset to a group of players whether he plays offensively or defensively.

Borderlands 3 – Amara, Fl4k, Moze and Zane

We expect to see the videos of Moze the Gunner, Amara the Siren, and Fl4k the Beastmaster very soon to learn more about them. Borderlands 3 is launching on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on September 13 so there is enough time for Gearbox to show us a bit more of the game.

Cosplay Wednesday – Kill la Kill’s Mankanshoku Mako


Studio TRIGGER’s Kill la Kill anime series made waves back when it launched in 2013, but it is coming back in a big way with the release of Kill la Kill the Game: IF. In honor of this fighting game, Gamers Heroes takes a look at a spot-on cosplay of Mankanshoku Mako.

Hailing from Singapore, Cvy proves that she is not an underachiever with this spot-on cosplay of Kill la Kill’s Mankanshoku Mako. Both the costume and the props were made by her, but the sailor fuku was done by somebody else. Wildmushrooms even stepped in with her cosplay of Ryuko.

Credit goes to biomonkz for the photos, and Kanasaiii, Data-Ronin and Reiyu-verse for their help in the shoot.

Kill la Kill Mankanshoku Mako Cosplay




You can find Cvy on DeviantArt here and on Facebook here.

Do you enjoy a bit of gaming cosplay? Or maybe you’re passionate enough to do it full time. Drop me a line at casey@gamersheroes.com and we’ll feature some of your cosplay.

Hero Arriving Today With Smash Update 4.0

Story 335628187

Whew. What a presentation, huh? If you missed out on the lengthy Nintendo Direct that just aired earlier today, we got you covered. You can learn all about the new Super Smash Bros. Ultimate DLC fighter, Hero, right here. We also have all the Smash Update 4.0 info available for you as well. If you don’t like hearing me rant, you can scroll to the bottom and watch the 22-minute video.

Masahiro Sakurai, smiling.

Our one true Hero.

A Hero Draws Near!

 

Hero is the next playable character in the Fighter Pass DLC bundle to come to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. He arrives in the United States on July 30 sometime in the late afternoon. Masahiro Sakurai, director of Ultimate, put up a live Nintendo Direct detailing Hero and his abilities. Sakurai tells us that this character has the most special moves out of any character on the roster so far.

Bounce, one of Hero's spells.

Hero’s first ability is to randomly land critical hits on enemies when he uses a smash attack. These come out of nowhere, doing about 50% damage. He can also block projectiles with his shield, in a similar fashion to Link. As for his special attacks, here are some bullet points for you:

  • Neutral B: Frizz – Frizz produces a short flame projectile, burning opponents. You can hold down the B button to charge up and release a Frizzle attack or hold it down until it’s fully charged to unleash a more powerful Kafrizz attack. Similar to Samus, you can store your charged-up attack for later.
  • Side B: Zap – This move starts as a standard lightning attack, zapping foes. Zapple is the next strongest version of this attack, charged up like Frizzle. And lastly, Kazap is the fully charged-up version of the attack. You can’t store this attack for later use like you can with Kafrizz.
  • Up B: Woosh – Woosh is Hero’s recovery move, with three different versions, just like his other two specials. Swoosh is the slightly charged version that goes a little higher and Kaswoosh causes one of the most effective recovery distances I’ve ever seen. This move can also damage other players.
  • Down B: Command Selection – This is the big one: Command Selection. With this move, you can pick from a randomly generated list of four separate spells to cast. Once you open up the Command Selection menu with down B, you can pick a spell and cast it. This is why Hero has so many special moves. Some of them include Bounce, Psyche Up, Oomph, Heal, Flame Slash and more.

Those are the Hero’s special moves, all of which use some of his 100 MP gauge. Some attacks use more MP than others, so Sakurai cautions players to keep their eye on the blue bar.

Also included with Hero are his new, airborne stage, Yggdrasil’s Altar. The stage comes from Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age S – Definitive Edition and is part of the Fighter Pass DLC or as part of the second DLC pack containing Hero, which goes for $5.99. You also purchase some Mii outfits inspired by Dragon Quest for $0.75 each, but do people really use those (don’t hate me if you do)?

How To Transfer Gold (Money) To New Game+ In Fire Emblem Three Houses

How To Transfer Gold To New Game+ In Fire Emblem Three Houses
New Game+ strips you back to bare basics but there is a trick to take some gold with you. This guide will tell you How To Transfer Gold (Money) To New Game+ In Fire Emblem Three Houses so you can get a little starting kick to the gold you begin the game with on your new save file.

It’s worth noting that this method does not allow you to transfer all of your gold. Due to the cost and selling of the items involved, you will only be able to transfer a portion of the money from your old save to your New Game+ but still, it’s better than nothing, right?

How To Transfer Gold To New Game+ In Fire Emblem Three Houses

At the end of a story campaign, you will get the option to marry someone in Three Houses. That event itself has no bearing on this method but it does signal that you’re close to the end of the story. Which is when you unlock New Game+.

One of the features of New Game+ is that you get to keep all of your Battalions. Battalions are the only item you can transfer that can be sold by selecting “Dismiss” at the Battalion shop. This means you can buy as many Battalions as the store has to sell on your old save then, when you reach your new save, you can sell your Battalions. Unfortunately you can only sell them for a fraction of the amount but it’s still worth doing.

I’m uncertain if the Battalion store gets restocked. If it does, you could do this method 2-3 chapters in advance of the end and really stock up. Either way, it’s a good way of getting a boost in gold to start a new game.

Fire Emblem Three Houses Birthday Guide

Fire Emblem Three Houses Birthday Guide
Want to know when to set your birthday to get the free gift? This Fire Emblem Three Houses Birthday Guide will tell you what month and date the game begins its campaign so you can set your birthday to a date closer to the time to receive your gift earlier.

While you’re probably viewing this for when you start your New Game+, it works equally well if you’re just starting the game. At the beginning of the game you get to make two choices. Your gender and your birthday. The former is an obvious choice, but why does the latter matter?

Fire Emblem Three Houses Birthday Guide

On your characters birthday, you are sent a reward by the leader of your house. It’s usually a simple accessory. Nothing super powerful but for a freebie at the start of the game, it’s great, and well worth just changing around a few dates and numbers.

The game officially starts on 4/20 Great Tree Moon. You get to control your character on 4/23 Great Tree Moon. Just to play it safe, I usually select 5/21 Harpstring Moon. This gives you the item at the start of the next month. It may be possible to do it earlier but I wasn’t sure if story and events would interfere.

Where To Find Mythril, Steel & Agarthium In Fire Emblem Three Houses

Where To Find Mithril, Steel & Agarthium In Fire Emblem Three Houses
Wondering where to find rare metals such as Agarthium and Umbral Steel? This guide will tell you Where To Find Mythril, Steel & Agarthium In Fire Emblem Three Houses as there are many different types of rare materials and metals that are required to make awesome weapons.

As you progress through Three Houses, you’ll require many different metals and resources. Some of these resources are required to complete side quests, others can be used to repair weapons and some can even be used to craft some of the most powerful weapons in the game.

Where To Find Mithril, Steel & Agarthium In Fire Emblem Three Houses

Unfortunately, there’s no set method of obtaining any of these materials quickly or reliably. The following is a list of the rare and valuable metals in the game and how you can obtain them for yourself.

  • Smithing Stone – Purchased from the vendor once unlocked. Mostly used for repairs and basic upgrades
  • Black-Sand Steel – Purchased from the vendor once unlocked
  • Wootz Steel – Potential reward for killing Monsters & destroying armor
  • Arcane Crystal – Purchased from the Dark Vendor (unlocked towards the end of the game, available in new game plus)
  • Mythril – Potential reward for killing Monsters & destroying armor
  • Umbral Steel – Potential reward for killing Monsters & destroying armor
  • Agarthium – Also found via Monster drops but only very late game

As you can see, most of the rare and valuable metals are from Monster drops. Monsters are a unique type of enemy in Three Houses. They take up 4 spaces and have an armor slot for each space, marked by a yellow square when highlighting the creature. The best way to get the rare metals is to first destroy a creatures armor, then the creature. There are many Battalions that do area of effect attacks, making armor destruction much easier.

Pay close attention to the battles on offer. Whenever you have a rest day, always check the battle screen. Sometimes there’s a Rare Monster Sighting, these are great for rare materials. However, Monsters can also appear normally. When on the battle screen, check the text for each battle. Some will tell you a group of bandits need wiping out, other times it will mention Monsters. If you need the rare materials, Monsters are the way to go.
