Abnormal Mapping is back with a special guest and a long-lived game stricken from Em's backlog forever as Six Dettmar joins us to talk about marriage, weapon triangles, permadeath and more as we explore the strange turn of events that is Fire Emblem: Awakening! With Jackson gone, we get deep in the weeds on fantasy nonsense, anime tropes, and how sometimes what makes a game popular is really hard to pin down.
If you would like to guest on our Podcast or just generally support the show please consider pledging to keep our lights on and our bellies full on Patreon! Thank you to everyone who continues to help us make shows at any level.
Things Discussed: Heat Signature, Bayonetta 2, Fire Emblem Awakening, the Iwata Asks about FE:A, non-spoilery talk about Fire Emblem Fates
