The Newbie’s Guide for Starting the Fire Emblem Series

Are you curious about the Fire Emblem franchise but too intimidated to dive in? I don’t blame you. Spanning across multiple consoles – along with roughly half of the games in the series never making it outside of Japan – it can be confusing to know where to start.

That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t start at all. With just a little nudge, you could join us on the Fire Emblem hype train! Hopefully this guide can clear up some questions you may have with regards to starting your journey into the series.

Fighting Dead Air: Tactics I Use to Keep the Streaming Conversations Going

How do you keep a conversation going for hours at a time? This is a challenge that many streamers face, especially since most of the time, they’re in a room by themselves with no one to speak to voice-to-voice. Having experience as an on-air radio personality, I’ve taken this aspect for granted in the past. I know I can speak eloquently and have a few cool stories to tell. However, more often than not, I had a good 10 minutes of material in me before dragging on the stream for another two hours with nothing to say.

Even when streaming to an audience of 0, it’s still important to talk to yourself. Your next fan might be the person who watches the VOD after the fact. I get a number of subscribers on Twitch and YouTube that way, so I know this phenomenon is real.

As someone who isn’t going to wow most viewers with his top-tier gameplay or handsome looks (lol), what I have to say is the most valuable thing I have to offer. Of late, I’ve taken steps to try and have more to talk about. Maybe some of these conversation starters can help you keep your stream engaging for all involved!

The Flavour of Summer

What is your flavour of summer?

Some like fresh fruits, as it is that time of the year when they’re harvested. Ice cream? While it’s a year-round phenomenon in my house, it’s definitely best known as a summertime treat. For my fellow Canadians, there’s nothing more refreshing and patriotic as a Tim Horton’s Iced Capp.

For me, nothing says summer quite like a slushie, slurpee, icee, or whatever name you ascribe to that flavoured ice beverage.

Fire Emblem: Three Houses Review

There’s two sides to every story. The Fire Emblem: Fates series of games attempted to tell both in its conflict between two armies. Getting the opportunity to bond with each and see the events from different perspectives was an interesting twist to the formula, but you had to buy the Birthright and Conquest campaigns separately. After you’ve finished both? Surprise! You actually have to buy and play the DLC to see what really happened! Both games and the DLC were great, but it certainly felt like a cash grab.

Fire Emblem: Three Houses could have scored a victory by simply taking that multi-sided campaign and stuffing it into one package. Instead, Nintendo and Intelligent Systems went above and beyond with this gargantuan game.

Highlights From the EB Games Sidewalk Sale

EB Games is in the midst of clearing out a bunch of its inventory through sidewalk sales. Admittedly, I wasn’t expecting much from them. However, the one by me happened to rent out an entire store space in the mall to fit all of the deals in. Here are a few things that caught my eye!

A Day at the Pretty Heroes Convention in Toronto

Originating as a Sailor Moon convention years ago, Pretty Heroes in Toronto has expanded in size and scope. More fandoms are represented, though Sailor Moon is still the star of the show. The convention has moved to a larger venue just east of the downtown core. And it’s also the first year my wife and I were in attendance!
