Well just finished the "Law" (and Bad end) route. Hopefully more of the story is explained in the other routes as I finish.
Thoughts on the game so far-Dang it this game's hard. 1st dungeon I went in I died to the 2nd normal enemy. The battle system is pretty deep, but the depth is bought with some serious complexity that can be troublesome to get used to. Seems that the game is designed so that running away/avoiding enemies is discouraged,and that's where the "grindy" part of the experience comes into play. This isn't as much of a problem as I thought though, for 2 reasons. One is that even low level enemies are useful in this game for fusing and elemental attacks so encountering them isn't as much of a pain as there is potential reward. The other being that the battle transitions aren't as obtrusive as something like Tales is (I hate that screen with the special effects). I really like the atmosphere of the gameworld, but there is some dissonance that is the result of the switching from 1st to 3rd person as well as the contrast between the sprite and model design. Could be fleshed out better. I just hit Tokyo, so looks like the tutorial stage is over. Overall, it's in the 7s for me so far. Maybe it'll improve once I actually start exploring the Tokyo regions.
Ah well, I went ahead and got it anyways. Hopefully I'm not too turned off by the 1st person sprite battles. Going in.
Sell me on SMTIV. I don't want to miss the CN deal, but I'm really not sold on the game yet. Is there a lot of grinding required? How easily can you run from battles? (by which I mean not be forced into the battle menu in the 1st place)
I'ma just wait for your thread on it.
Vesperia is actually pretty bland. (Design wise)
The dungeons are so linear. At this point I'm just playing it for the battle system. How's ToGf?
Woah, how'd you change it's size? The size of the GIF I mean.
I concede. Do as you will. It sold 200,000 is 5 days. Yeah I lost. Might as well get this over with.
Well your backlog seems big XD good luck finishing all those games before Pokemon comes out.
