    EB Games broke the street date. I checked the stock this morning and it is already nowhere to be found. Looks I’m waiting until the 4th!

    • KingGunblader

      Sooo disregard this. I got it, WOO!

  • Yvonne Tsang

    Canadians rejoice! Street date is broken and you can get the game early at EB Games. :)

    • J_Joestar

      I just got a call a little while ago saying i could come in to pick it up lol

      • Hawks

        Yep called the one in Langley BC and theyll have it within the hour. Awesome. Gamefaqs is full of threads about this, its nation-wide :D

    • JustThisOne


      It’s.. it’s cool. I can wait. Patience. Pa…patience. :’)

      • Miralizmis

        I can’t. :P
        (Too bad I don’t live in Canada… Maybe I can run there… >_>)

    • Raltrios

      What? I haven’t gotten the call that my preorder is in yet! Curse them for holding out on me!

    • I pre ordered mine from the website and they shipped it to me today, so good.

  • J Knox

    I just got home after picking up the game, can’t wait to play. The bonus art book is also surprisingly nice. Sure it doesn’t have many pages but it has a nice embossed cover and the pages are of good quality. I was disappointed by the crappy 1 page foldout manual, but I guess that’s to be expected in this day and age.

    • Jimmy Dean

      How did you get the game 6 days early buddy?

  • YoshEE

    Starting now I am gonna do countdown> :D

    • Ferrick

      don’t, it will make the days feel longer

  • Jonattas F.

    There’s something very wrong with me… Why I cannot enjoy such an awesome game?

    • andref

      To afraid to lose your valuable companions and when they die and loud scream of agony erupts from your soul, thus this fear cancels out your enjoyment

      • Laith Rem

        That’s why you have casual mode =V

    • JustThisOne

      The awesomeness overload as burned out your awesome receptors, resulting in a decreased or absent amount of hype.

      I prescribe playing this game, as consistent exposure to awesome may resuscitate the receptors and deliver the “YESSSS, THIS GAME IS SO AWESOME. AAAUUGGGGH!” that you’re looking for.

      • Jonattas F.

        lol Siliconera has a top-notch health care system!

        • BadenBadenPrinny

          Certainly better than anything that exists in real life :P

    • pressstart

      I love looking at it, but I’m such a terrible strategy gamer that I inevitably lose pretty pathetically. Too much management going on, I can’t handle it! Still so enticing though.

      So how do you feel?

  • $39420547

    i can express in a comment how much i want this game, i’ve been waiting for a NEW FE for so long and i can’t stop myself from thinking that this one is going to be the best FE i’ve ever played

    • Miralizmis

      Neither can I.

  • JustThisOne

    Wewt! Manaketes can class change to other stuff! Yay!

  • Zenthos

    Fire Emblem awakening could truly be thee best srpg game. The amount of classes, tactics, builds, modes with additional features such as the art book and Japanese voice option make this a day one purchase.

  • fireemblembeast

    Soon. Very soon…

  • AkuLord3

    Stop Teasing me Nintendo…What can i do to pass the time… *stares at the paint drying*…why is there even fresh paint on the wall 0_0

    • Ah! Don’t mind that. There’s definitely not a treasure map I’m trying to cover up.

  • >Fire Emblem: Awakening will be released on February 4th in North America and sometime during April in Europe.
    >sometime during April in Europe.

    NoE, y u no say concrete release date yet? :/

  • riceisnice

    I’m surprised they kept Nowi’s bikini outfit.

  • This has taken Fire Emblem to a new height. I cannot wait to get my hands on this game!

  • Maumac77

    5 skills seems like overkill….but then again the amount of grinding one will most-likely have to do will be as equally insane… other words I will re-create my dream of OP villagers. Just like in Radiata Stories

    • Prinnydoom

      get a villager with astra and luna and i will be impressed.

      • Maumac77


        • Prinnydoom

          and sol and advantage.

          • Maumac77

            Add whatever conditions you want. I killed the silver dragon in Radiata with nothing but lv.70 farmers/villagers. I’ll be dammed if I can’t achieve the same thing in Awakening

          • Prinnydoom

            ^__________________________^ Lunatic +

  • Miralizmis

    Thank goodness they changed the skill system.

    I hate how I’d have like 2 skills equipped, and have a ton of space left for more skills.
    Now I can fill my skills up with awesome ones… Heheheh… >_>
