The GameCube Was Cool

Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance

October 20, 2022

If you can believe it there was a time where there were only two Fire Emblem characters in Super Smash Bros. and Nintendo didn't seem to even care about this soon to be landmark franchise for them in North America. Despite its odd history, Path of Radiance, a very late GameCube game, became the franchise's first 3D and fully voice acted game to be released, as well as the first North American release on a home console. Now known for its absurd price at used game stores across the world, at its core, Path of Radiance is actually a really amazing example of an excellent strategy game with a compelling and interesting story. Friends of the show Zafir and Matt join Mike & Neil as they talk about the series as a whole, why Ike is such a likeable character, and what the future holds for Fire Emblem after next year's Engage game.
