The only thing I didnt like about FE Awakening is that you required some of the DLC of repeatable grind levels in order to successfully complete Ultra-super-duper-nuper hard mode on hardcore mode.
They essentially balanced the game for DLC owners. That's a shitty practice. I am not sure if that is fixed by this DLC practice, but I wouldnt really care because Ill be getting the expanded version of the game.
I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.
