    Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon & New Mystery of the Emblem | BONUS XP 033

    Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon & New Mystery of the Emblem | BONUS XP 033

    The DS duo of the Fire Emblem series are quite the contentious pairing. Not only did they suffer as lackluster retellings of the beginning of the series, but only one of them was released globally. However, these games do have some redeeming qualities and are a relatively fun, if not overly simple, way to experience the series' origins.

    We made sure to kill off everyone else so that way we could recruit Professor Bopper and ActualLizard to talk about the highs and lows of Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and Fire Emblem: New Mystery of the Emblem.

    Fire Emblem Awakening feat. ActualLizard and Mekkah! | BONUS XP 032

    Fire Emblem Awakening feat. ActualLizard and Mekkah! | BONUS XP 032

    Fire Emblem Awakening is often dubbed the savior of Fire Emblem series as things weren't looking good for one of our favorite tactics games. For better or worse, Fire Emblem Awakening introduced a lot of interesting new mechanics, like the pair-up system, while also reacquainting the series with offspring units. It's also known for its unbalanced gameplay that usually leads to playthroughs with only a handful of characters.

    Come hear our thoughts on the 3DS's first Fire Emblem entry!

    Fire Emblem 6 & 7 feat. Mekkah & ActualLizard! | BONUS XP 031

    Fire Emblem 6 & 7 feat. Mekkah & ActualLizard! | BONUS XP 031

    If you're a Westerner, it's very likely that you hadn't heard of the Fire Emblem series until the mid-2000s when Fire Emblem 7 was released outside of Japan. Though it was packaged as just 'Fire Emblem,' many were surprised to find that not only was it not the first title in the series but it was actually a prequel to its much more difficult sibling, FE6. Pull up a seat and listen as RPGaymer, ActualLizard, and Mekkah talk about why this game was the first released in the West and what made this GBA duo quite the odd couple.

    Fire Emblem: Fates feat. Professor Bopper and SpeedyHawk! | BONUS XP 030

    Fire Emblem: Fates feat. Professor Bopper and SpeedyHawk! | BONUS XP 030

    It's Fates time, my dudes. And it's about to get real ugly. Fire Emblem: Fates is a pretty polarizing entry. In some aspects, it's a mechanically sound, highly engaging game while still managing to be a mess of a plot.

    In order to tackle such a chaotic game, it's time to bring in a little bit of chaotic energy.

    Anyone else ready for the Professor Bopper + SpeedyHawk Dual Strike?

    Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance & Radiant Dawn feat. Professor Bopper and ActualLizard! | BONUS XP 029

    Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance & Radiant Dawn feat. Professor Bopper and ActualLizard! | BONUS XP 029

    It's time for us to continue our run-through on the Fire Emblem series and this time we're hitting two games in one. Path of Radiance is coveted as one of the best (if not the best) Fire Emblem and it super sucks that it's system-locked (looking at you Intelligent Systems). It's hard to pin down a singular reason as to why this game was so successful (deep characters, rich lore, and a lot of unique systems). Thankfully, ActualLizard and Professor Bopper are back again to help tag team what makes this duo so special.

    Oh, and Path of Radiance and Radiant Dawn is the best Fire Emblem duology. There. I said it. Come at me.

    *Footage from @ProfessorBopper Thanks buddy!
    *Whitty commentary from @actuallizard 🦎

Awesome Podcast

Long time listener of RPGaymer and the team does a great job with their content! If you enjoy good discussion about gaming with fun guests I definitely recommend it.

Cheers boys! Great job.

Finally got to listen to this podcast. As a mom and an ex-teacher the conversation diving into the origins of their love for gaming and how it helped them get through their early years was very enlightening and most definitely heartfelt. I’m sure it resonates with a lot of their followers or “gamers.”
Cheers boys! Great job.
P. S. The Dating Game is hilarious.

Really Insightful and Entertaining!

I’ll start by saying that I’m not the general target market for this podcast, but I still can’t stop listening! The hosts are so entertaining to listen to and provide perspectives on video games that I’ve not considered. Really excited to keep listening!
