This game has been a long-time coming, for a number of reasons. Not only have I wanted this Let’s Play to happen for many years now, but it also speaks a lot for American gamers back in the early 2000s when Super Smash Bros. Melee came out and when Marth and Roy were finally introduced to North American gamers who had no idea where they came from. This brought Fire Emblem into the limelight, and a few years later, Intelligent Systems finally graced International audiences with the first worldwide released game of the series. This adventure follows the heroes of Eliwood, Hector and Lyn on their quest to save their land from an oncoming evil, in turn-based strategy game goodness!

As I said before, I can’t even begin to tell you guys how long I’ve been waiting to do this game. This is my favorite Fire Emblem game of all-time, one of my favorite video games of all-time, and after looking at the list of games I had not done for the channel yet, I knew that I couldn’t go another year without having this game covered. Because of this, I finally decided it was time to jump into action and get this beast of a project beginning! Let’s save Elibe everyone!

Advance Wars was a big player on the GBA, especially in terms of turn-based strategy games, and even though franchises were starting to move to the Nintendo DS, that didn’t stop Intelligent Systems from using the well-established “Advance Wars” name. All our favorite COs have returned, with some new faces as well, for a new installment that throws a few new twists, and another screen, to the mix.

Advance Wars has always been a main staple of my channel, but truth be told, I was considering putting this off for a bit, even after getting the 3DS Capture Card. I just wasn’t sure if I was ready to get into ANOTHER Advance Wars game, just because of how time-consuming they can be. However, after thinking about it, and revisiting the game for a afternoon, I realized that I actually had missed the Advance Wars gameplay, and Dual Strike didn’t seem like it would be that big of an investment. Because of that, I decided to go for it!

This project is finished with exception to the extra videos. I still want to finish all of the new War Room maps AND cover some of the other bonus content, but this will be done at a future date and time.
