I couldn't buy it this month, but I wasn't exactly fond of the price either. Going by reviews, you don't exactly have to grind epr say, but I am seeing some reviews making note of the orb collecting becoming a bit of a stale habit.
I'll likely pick it up when it reaches a lower price throughout the year. As much as I love Drragonball (probably my top fave with Evangelion in second), I'm not really in a rush to buy it just yet. That being said, it seems people are already modding it on PC, so that'll be cool for me to tinker around with once I get around to buying it.
