Is it just me or is this game too bright at places? I mean, in the Theif's into there's this mansion you are supposed to raid, and the light shines through the windows so harshly that you can't even make out character's faces at times.

I actually found it better in flight mode, which lowers the light automatically. In docked mode, it hasn't been an issue, but my TV is really well calibrated so that could be why.



End of 2016 hardware sales:

Wii U: 15 million. PS4: 54 million. One: 30 million. 3DS: 64.8 million. PSVita: 15.2 million.

Some people are WAY too defensive about this. If you want to settle for a 2D game, fine. Go for it.

Many of us will not. Period.

And, nobody said graphics were "all that mattered". Sure, gameplay is most important. If I didn't believe that, I'd play nothing but AAA action games and shooters. But, I don't. I play almost 100% Turn-Based games. But, even if graphics aren't the MOST important aspect of a game, they DO matter.

They do matter and I would argue that graphics (or visuals most accurately) are one of the strong points of Octopath Traveller.



Signature goes here!

I don't think it's worth $60, but then again, I bought it. The game really only is an upgraded 3DS title with all the flashy lighting, maps, and particle effects turned on. And I mean that. You literally go into the Unreal engine, and click a box to turn most of those things on. It doesn't take much work from the developer at all. I don't see why they couldn't have charged $50 for it like Labryinth of Refrain.

Let me beat Enter the Gungeon, and then I'll start playing it. If the gameplay is amazing I may just change my mind.

Alright after putting 30 hours in all I have to say is that this game is damned near perfect! Cross-classing is one of my all time favorite things to do in RPGs and this game handles it perfectly.  I haven't done a story quest in ages, because there's so many sidequests, and hidden dungeons that I'm having a crapton of fun just going off the beaten path. The strategy involved in the combat is a level above the Bravely games. 

TL/DR: Absolutely Worth $60!

I don’t know where you’re at since you posted this, but if you loved the strategy needed till now, wait for chapters 3 and the optional shrines, you’ll have a blast !

I was already wandering around and finding all the shrines when I posted that. Being able to cross-class is what sold me on it being worth $60. Another game that does cross classing really well is Etrian Odyssey IV, and of course Final Fantasy VI.
