Loser pays for the first pack!
How much are you willing to pay for Fire Emblem Awakening?

Nintendo have released a new video for the Fire Emblem Awakening Downloadable Content (DLC) options. Five different Packs are explained and footage is shown for each. Each map costs $2.50. You also have the option to purchase each Pack for $6.00, saving you $1.50 for each of the Packs. The Champions of Yore 1 map is available for free until March 6th so don't miss out.

Champions Pack
Chrom and friends meet an elderly fortune-teller whose cards can summon heroic spirits. Unfortunately, his cards were stolen. Your objective is help recover those cards. In each of the maps, battle against a series of legendary Fire Emblem heroes such as Lyn, Roy, and Ike. Upon completion of each map, one classic Fire Emblem character will join you.
  • Champions of Yore 1 (Prince Marth card)
  • Champions of Yore 2 (Roy card)
  • Champions of Yore 3 (Micaiah card & "All Stats +2" Skill)
Golden Pack
This pack offers a great way to rack up gold and experience that will further support your main story progression. Secret treasure and unique weapons are guarded by Dark Warlords. Will your bravery on the battlefield pay off?
  • The Golden Gaffe (Gold)
  • EXPontential Growth (Experience Points)
  • Infinite Regalia ("Silver Card" Item)
Lost Bloodlines Pack
Marth and Seliph continue their battle. In the first map, Chrom is summoned by Marth to aid in the battle to defeat Seliph's army. In Lost Bloodlines 2, Chrom is summoned by Seliph to aid in defeating Marth's army. Once both armies are united, battle against the combined forces of Marth and Seliph.
  • Lost Bloodlines 1 (Leif card)
  • Lost Bloodlines 2 (Alm card & "Dread Scroll" Item)
  • Lost Bloodlines 3 (Seliph card & "Paragon" Skill)
Smash Pack
In the first map, you'll aid Roy's army to defeat Ike. Next, you'll help Ike defeat Roy's forces. The final showdown consists of Chrom and his forces taking on both forces of Ike and Roy.
  • Smash Brethren 1 (Elincia card)
  • Smash Brethren 2 (Eirika card & "Wedding Bouquet" Item)
  • Smash Brethren 3 (Lyn card & "Iote's Shield" Item)
Rogues Pack
The forces of light and darkness battle. Help the Heroes of Light defeat the forces of darkness. The role switches with the second map where Chrom and his team are summoned by the Army of Darkness to aid in their battle against the Army of Light. When both armies join forces, will you be able to defeat them in the final battle?
  • Rogues & Redeemers 1 (Ephraim card)
  • Rogues & Redeemers 2 (Cecilia card)
  • Rogues & Redeemers 3 (Ike card & "Limit Break" Skill)

So far I have purchased the Golden Pack. Well to be specific I originally downloaded only The Golden Gaffe (Gold) and then my buddy told me how good EXPontential Growth (Experience Points) was, so I had to download the entire pack to get it. I ended up wasting an additional $2.50 since I did not just buy the pack from the start. Silly me. :(

Bummer!  How do you like this game so far?  I've been thinking about getting it.  Mostly because I was watching Game of Thrones S2, and was in the mood to do some tactical battle.  I tried to get it last weekend, but it was sold out at Best Buy.

I love the game. I have been holding off on progressing the story too much since I want to get my characters leveled up properly. The DLC I purchased is amazing for leveling and accumulating gold. It makes the game a bit easier.
Smash Brethren. Clever Nintendo... Clever... Just beat this game a week ago and am torn between starting a new game on Classic Hard or trying to beat Shadow Dragon that I just got in the mail.

Cool, glad you like it.  I might have to pick it up when it's back in stock.  I would download it, but I might need a new SD card if I do that.
I'll have to call my local Gamestop and various other stores to see if they've gotten any more copies of Fire Emblem: Awakening yet. I wrote to Nintendo about the issue saying that my local game store blamed Nintendo and they fired back saying that it was actually the retailers who get the product on the shelves. It was amazing. But of course Nintendo was also reassuring and wonderful and supportive like a significant other. Which is what they must be since I spend more time with them and more money on them than anyone else I know. (Kevin being an obvious exception, but do we "know" each other...? You don't really know someone until you've battled their Pokémon. That's what Nintendo tells us.)

Anyway, this is kind of a first for Nintendo, the whole paid DLC thing. I'm intrigued to see if we'll hear about how successful it is. Buying all 5 available map packs would cost almost as much as another game! But they look so cool... I can't wait to play this game! I'm hearing such great stuff about it and it's a special kind of torture seeing my Friend Code Friends' Miis happily playing at all hours of the night.

I knew I was missing something!

I'm still a bit hesitant about all this DLC being available right from the start, honestly. I know full and well that Nintendo's always been about offering a complete experience with all of its games. But after seeing how other companies like EA, Activision and Ubisoft handle DLC in their games, seeing day one DLC from someone as awesome as Nintendo still rings warning bells in my head without fail.

I'll still buy all of it when I can afford it come the 20th of April, but I still feel that it might've served Nintendo better in the long run to wait maybe a week or two before opening the floodgates.

You, sir, are cunning and elegant with your writing style. I like it!

Yes, let's have a battle soon!

I'm curious-natured so I gotta ask. What's so special about April 20th?

...the Australian release?

Duh! That didn't even dawn on me. Sorry about that, Luffy.

Also, this game is the devil. I've never really been too crazy about turn-based strategy games. I am one hell of a Checkers player though. When I first played the demo, I wasn't very satisfied. I felt that the demo was...short. It was almost too short. For someone who doesn't ever really play these genres, I felt like I was missing something. Ultimately, I felt a bit confused and didn't really give much more thought to it.

After receiving the game and playing it for a few hours, I can say that I've become quite fond of it. I've purchased the Champions Pack and the Gold Pack already. After getting used to how the game works, I can see the endless possibilities that it can offer. I can tell I'm really liking it because every time I stop playing it, I want more! The game just keeps on saying, "come back for more!"

I agree, LuffyFoxtrot. When the DLC is released along-side the game it feels like...like why not just put it in the game in the first place? Perhaps DLC is always a money grab. Some of it feels like on-disc DLC too. Unlocking classes seems to me like they're already in the game but they're only made accessible when we pay for them. And I don't like that. But Nintendo often gives a lot for free and perhaps in order to compete in the industry today, games need to generate the extra income.

The Year of Luigi might also be The Year of Paid DLC.

I'm awful at Pokémon, haha! I can assure you you'll win. But we should have a little tournament around the end of summer to gear-up for Pokémon X/Y. I don't know what the winner would get...some custom Member Rank? Institute some new badge system for competitions? XD It won't matter to me, since I don't take Pokémon seriously enough. I just want to collect the cute ones, make themed teams, and give my Pokémon fun nicknames (I call my Sudowoodo "Spruce Lee").

That's not to say I don't, "want to be the very best, like no one ever was!"

Your description of Fire Emblem: Awakening makes me want the game even more! Tomorrow I'll call around for sure. Someplace has to have it in stock by now! Right?

Just order it online. That's what I did at gamestop.com :)
