Fire Emblem: Three Houses - Introduction and Part 1

Fire Emblem: Three Houses is a turned based strategy game developed by Intelligent Systems and Koei Tecmo Games and published by Nintendo. The fifteenth entry in the long running series, Three Houses marks a return to home consoles from it's hiatus since 2007.


In this game, we play as a mercenary turned professor at a prestigious Garegg Mach Monastery that stands at the nexus of three nations: the Adrestian Empire to the south, the Holy Kingdom of Faerghus to the north, and the Leicester Alliance to the east. These nations are maintaining a perilous balance in which they send their talented young leaders to the Officers Academy at the monastery so that they can learn the skills they need to lead their country and meet the other children from the other two countries.

The game starts with the three heirs of the each of the kingdoms on the run from bandits and our father's mercenary company has to save them. The three heirs, the ax-welding daughter of the empire Edelgard von Hresvelg, the spearman king of the north Dimitri Alexandre Blaiddyd, and the sharp shooting head of the alliance Claude von Riegan, help us rout the enemies.

After the battle, we are invited by the Church's soldiers to go to the monastery where we are asked to become a professor at the school. After being introduced to each of the members of the three houses (the Black Eagles lead by Edelgard, the Blue Lions lead by Dimitri, and the Golden Deer lead by Claude), we are asked to choose one of the houses to lead.  In this playthrough, I have chosen to become the teacher of the Golden Deer.

After the first week, we are given some simple requests to allow us to get familiar with the school grounds. Soon after, we are then given the task to lead the house we chose in a inter-house battle royale in which we emerge victorious (although I lost two members unluckily).

Finally, we are given the task to clear out some bandits, but we will take care of that next time.

Thanks for reading!

Super Mario World Review

Super Mario World, released for the SNES in 1990 as a launch title and developed by Nintendo, is my second favorite game of all time. A follow up to the last main line Mario game Super Mario Bros. 3., Super Mario World (SMW) builds upon the game play of the previous titles by using familiar gimmicks such splitting the levels into separate worlds in which the player can choose which levels they play in which order, using many familiar power ups in the Mushroom and Fire Flower, and ending each world with a fight with one of Bowser's children. However, new additions allow the game provide a fresh experience for players of the previous games in the series. The biggest addition is the Mario game debut of Mario's dinosaur companion, Yoshi. Hatching a Yoshi egg allows Mario to ride the dinosaur and command Yoshi to eat enemies, fruit and gain new abilities when they eat the shells of the Koopa Troopas. The shells correspond to the powers of the colored Yoshi's: blue grow

Frozenbyte has released sequels in 2011, Trine 2 , and 2015, Trine 3: The Artifacts of Power and are currently working on a fourth game, Trine 4: The Nightmare Prince.

An old king had stolen two of the artifacts and, while trying to use the artifacts power, destroys the balance and corrupts himself and the land. The old king then raises an undead army to search for the Trine so he can complete the collection and gain ultimate

Fire Emblem: Three Houses - Part 3

In this episode of Fire Emblem: Three Houses, we continue with third month of school. This part has less story and more freedom in how you lead the class. In this part, we take part in some auxiliary battles, promote our characters to the next class, complete some requests, and finally complete some support cut-scenes to start the character specific interactions. On the first free day in the month, we searched through the school and talked to every student and completed some quests. The first main quest opens up the school counselor. The counselor handles requests from the students and other members of the faculty and it's up to the player to decide which one of three responses would best. Choosing the best response increases the bond between the player and the person who asked the person. The second main quest opens up the market place and introduces the player to the battalion commander. He can allow the characters to purchase new battalions and refresh the battalions that
