I didn't hear anything about this game leading up to its release for some reason but the art style really caught my attention. Gameplay feels very much like simpler Grandia.
@gamewizard65 Yeah, I've done that a couple times. I just assumed that running into enemies head on would start the battle with neither side having an advantage like every other non-random battle RPG ever, but that doesn't seem to be the case.
Was gonna download this, but don't have space. Boo! Seems I need to invest in a hard drive for Wii U. I did download the demo on PS4 though. And while much of it is beautiful, I'm not a huge fan of the character design, esp the protagonist.
I bought a 1tb Western Digital hard drive about a year ago, and it only cost me like $90 on Amazon-brand new. It still works like a charm and I notice no difference at all in download/upload speed compared to the Wii U's internal memory. Games boot up just as quick, same thing when I download games from eshop. I know I didn't need that much space, but the difference in price compared to the 500gb version and other brand names was so small, I figured might as well spend the few extra bucks. Plus now I can download games till my heart's content. Though sometimes I feel I should have went with a smaller size so I don't download too many games. I've always been weak when it comes to buying new games, ect. Ha, ha. The madness will never end.
Back on topic, I LOVE the musical score in this game, plus graphical style is so endearing!
Nathalie picked this up after enjoying it at PAX East and has been playing it non-stop. She loves it. I haven't gotten that much exposure to it, but from what I've seen it certainly is pretty and the music is quite nice. I'll probably play it when she's done with it.
I enjoy it, I don't think it's anywhere near as pretty as everyone makes it out to be, the animation is simply shamed by Dust: An Elysian Tail, but it's still pretty nice to look at.
Also, I found it super easy at first, so I turned the difficulty up to hard and cranked the battle speed up to 5. It's like a whole new game, plays COMPLETELY differently. The battle bar moves so fast.
