Okay, I’ll admit that my only exposure to the show is listening to it in the background while my sister binge-watched it years back, but this mod that adds elements of Gilmore Girls to Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones is just too incredible for words.

It’s the little things that make this project, created by Dicey Dungeons artist Marlow Dobbe, so fun. The random references and non-sequiturs. Lorelei’s class type being “Single Mom.” Rory pining for Harvard when she dies. It’s completely bizarre seeing these two properties together and yet, somehow, it works.

Leave it to video games to act as the medium through which this fever dream was given life.

I’m a 43 year-old man and I’ve watched this series with my wife completely through at least 7 times. You should really give it a chance. It’s one of the best.

Downloaded the patch last night and tried it out briefly. Not really a fan of Fire Emblem’s combat, but I’ll push through so I can play more because they put a lot until this mod. They even replaced the main menu music with the show’s theme.

Ha.... I'm in the bathroom writing this and just heard the theme song coming from the living room.
