Confession time: I have the special edition of FE:Fates with all 3 versions on one cart. I got it at release. I have never put it into my 3DS.

Because I still haven’t finished Awakening. Because I spent so much time reclassing and leveling characters (which I could continue to do) that I’ve not done the few missions left. And also it feel anti-climatic that I have so many characters so strong and won’t use even half of them.

I have to finish Awakening. And for Fates I have to set some rules to just let the damn characters level and grow as they will and not micromanage them so I can actually play the thing.

And then watch me probably buy Echoes thinking I’ll finish Fates soon only to put off Fates for other games and leave Echoes for a year too.

That’s all, just needed to come clean on a sliver of my backlog.
