Yup, sounds like we are thinking very similarly on this one. It's just so frustrating because the pre-made characters seem so cool! But the character creation and customization was part of why I fell in love with EO4!! ARGH!! It would be one thing if these were 12-hr games; it might not feel so bad to start over a 2nd time to see it all. But, when I'm invested over dozens of hours, I want that to be *the* game. Ya know?
Please report back if there's anything good from Miiverse. =)
I had to come to terms with missing out on classes/plot elements/endings/boss encounters/items playing EOIII since you have to join one of several factions at one point in the story, and I was hoping I could avoid that sort of thing in the future. Do we know if EO2 Untold does things the same way as the first remake?
From the cutscene-heavy trailers, I'm assuming it is setup just the same. =\ But, worth looking into for sure!
The other weird thing is, if these games never had character customization, I might love them for the Story Mode and be completely happy. But, after experiencing the joys of this specific style of character customization (made me feel like FF1!) I just can't play EO without it!
