It is. You have the new idea for combat, all the quests (thankfully no time limit), upgrading and changing weapons, molding gems for power boosts, different styles of attacks with different effects, and most awesome of all, seeing warnings from the future from your blade, the Manado, and taking charge of the upcoming events to prevent the future from happening.
Oh, I will. It turns out that my money will always be down on it, so I can get it on the release date or any day later. They'll just have a reserved copy for me on July 31st only, then afterwards, I need to get there when they have one up for grabs.
Nope, I still have to finish my finals and then my regents after that. It's gonna be a handful.
