Except that's the lingo to say that it sold bad, but it paid the time they expent making the game.

If they can't give any numbers, it means they don't WANT to give any numbers. If they were impressed with the sales numbers, then they would brag about it like they did with LoS.

It's on the 3DS, of course it sold well. There aren't enough games on the 3DS market to counter it. If it was released on the 360 or PS3, who knows how it'd have fared.

That's a fair point too...

or their expectations were already low for it
Laura and Gabriel arrive in the deepest cave of the castle and... they find IGA.

It was probably on the cheaaaaap side too. I can't say it enough times, salaries in Japan are far superior than spain (which is loooooooow on salaries, thanks crisis) this is out of my mind but I think MoF costed less/the same adjusted for inflation- than Order of Ecclessia (The only IGAvania that seems to have a budget)

Everything comes full circle

I'm not sure this is true.

Animal Crossing: New Leaf, Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon, Etrian Odyssey IV, Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D, Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate, Shin Megami Tensei Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers, Dragon Warrior VIII, Kid Icarus Uprising, are all high-selling titles.  Some of these titles are from 2013 and have already broken a million units sold.

All I can say is that I bought a brand new 3DS XL for Mirror of Fate. I played about half way into the game and for some reason I stopped. It didn't hold my attention and it just wasn't fun to play. I'm really sad to say that I just did not like it. I finally said the hell with it and sold my 3DS on Craigslist. Something about MOF was just so.... Boring.

The statement about mof yeah I'll agree with it but selling your 3ds? There are so many good games on the system it boggles my mind for instance this month shin megami tensei IV is coming out and that looks like it's going to rock some peoples socks off.

I prefer my vita to the 3ds. The 3d on the 3ds hurt my eyes, the graphics were weak, and the system was uncomfortable to hold for extended periods. The vita may have fewer games, but the good games that are on it, I prefer over what the 3ds has to offer. I'm super pumped for killzone mercenary this September.. The vita is going to work awesome with the ps4 too.

So far I haven't missed it. I'm not happy about that though. I really wanted to like it.

That's the tip of  the 3ds also no one has talked about project x zone and speaking of Fire emblem I beat awakening so I'll say this. The ending while okay did not have much an impact as others fe games in my opinion not bad but not as good as say fe7 or path of radiance or the first half of fire emblem 4 ( I watched it on youtube and man I'll say this it is one of the most messed up endings in gaming history)

The only games that I wanted on the vita are persona 4 golden and soul sacrifice and now I can scratch both off since I bought persona 4 and downloaded Gods Eater Burst I can thank project x zone for that.  Soma, Lindow and Alisa. Alisa is very interesting chough

Vita has Gravity Rush, and for that alone is worth buying.
Why of course, that's not the only great game, but it's certainly my favourite one.

I liked FE for the character dialogues. When I got Severa, i kept laughing and muttering aloud, "Ha ha she's such a little bitch!" And Noire always makes me smile. So many jokes. But now that i've grinded pretty high up and can just Galeforce my way to and through boss battles, it's definitely too easy at later levels. And most of the items in the game are pointless. There's almost no point in investing in any weapons, as at later levels you can still insta-kill someone with a spoon.
