Hey check out the Digipen institute of technology website for many downloadable freeware games, a number of them being quite professional.

If you do go there, you should check out atleast Narbacular Drop and TAG.  They're pretty good, ill give them both a thumbs up

Yeah, it is my favorite strategy game series ever, and I'm actually a pretty big strategy game fan. My favorite FE game was the very first one released outside Japan (the GBA port called "Fire Emblem").

I am I huge FE fan. The Original (shadow dragon), wasn't to fantastic I thought, all of the GBA releases were exceptional but Path of Radiance and Radiant Dawn(Edward is a fucking beast) were both my Favorites. I wish the earlier ones had better fan translations.

Yeah, that's Blazing Sword and it is pretty sweet. I'm still trying to get through Shadow Dragon, which is good when you consider the fact that it was originally, what? 8-Bit? A quite decent 1st installment.

Right now I'm playing through the fifth one, Thracia 776. I'm only halfway through (Chapter 15), and really is one of the hardest I have played.

Well, for the originals that is. Now those Asian hacks I have tried, are another story.

I have been playing FE7 recently, but because I want to try out a hack made by Mageknight, just because I intrigued by the fact Kidd as well other CC's character implemented in game. I still trying to linger through Chapter 7x though.

Just finished MegaMan Star Force II: Zerker X Ninja (I went with Zerker). I had to look up a few Ciphers (& in the process remembered I could have 5 mega class chips) to take down Le Mu (I tried a couple times with my normal folder, again with a modified folder and then used the aforementioned Ciphers). I think it was somewhere on the bottom rung for the entire EXE & SF series...Anyway, now I'm on MegaMan Star Force III: Black Ace and I'm now extra hyped for the crossover game because this seems a lot better than SFII so far. I heard Red Joker is the better choice for PvP stuff, but as I don't get to do that, I went with the other one...

I also got Professor Layton & the Diabolical Box, but there's a little graphical hiccup (their faces float a little above their heads). It's not too bad that I couldn't play through the game like that...But when I started ...& the Curious Village the NA ROM wouldn't start up past the start screen (isn't that horrible?), but the PAL version was fine...And since I've got so many other games already I decided I can wait until the PAL version of Diabolical Box comes out and see if that works better...Plus, I'm already used to the PAL voice actors (which kind of sound better anyway...unless I'm hearing things and they're the same...<_>). Maybe I'll learn more of the metric system in preparation...>_>
