Well... I finally
finished Ni No Kuni II Revenant Kingdom. I was forced
to play into post-game again though. Not only that... but for a lot
longer than I had to play into Wrath of the White Witch Remastered post-game.
But don't take that the wrong way. I didn't mind it as much in Ni No Kuni II. BECAUSE GOOD GOD. THIS GAME. WAS SO GOD DAMN GOOD.
Story was great (especially in later chapters), gameplay was OUTSTANDING
and chaotic fun at times and it was just an overall fun experience for me. In the end the removal of 'anime cutscenes' didn't matter at all
because I didn't even notice because of how much fun I was having lol.
I'd definitely say that this is, by far, the BEST
game I've played this year thus far. Unfortunately... that's not really saying much. Because it's only March obviously. Well that and I still have stuff like Nier Automata, Final Fantasy 7 Remake (Part 1), and Tales of Vesperia Definitive Edition in my backlog. So... yeah... it probably won't hold that for very long. RIP.
I would most certainly be ALL OVER
another game. Unfortunately... even if
there is one... it'll never see the light of day in the U.S. due to Level 5's death. Although, IIRC, Bandai Namco were a part of both Ni No Kuni games so I suppose it's possible
they could localize and release a potential Ni No Kuni III for them
... but... I feel like that shouldn't be counted on that happening. So yeah... I loved this game to death. Believe it or not, I ended up with 4 (5 including the Platinum) trophies left to get. But the rest are just too grindy for my tastes and I just want to move on at this point. Sorry?
Anyway... I hope I've had a long enough break from the Tales of franchise. Not that it really matters. Because yep... I'm back to it once again. This time... with Tales of Vesperia Definitive Edition which I've already started playing if you haven't noticed already lol. Yikes. The game isn't messing around. I was thrown into the deep end IMMEDIATELY
. The first boss was RIDICULOUS
. I managed to win somehow though. Oh well I guess. I just hoping this isn't going to become an on-going pattern...
Either way with Tales of being complicated in their own ways... I intend on NOT CARING AT ALL
about trophies. Because trophies for these games are practically challenges in their own right. So I'll take whatever I get pretty much. Either way... wish me luck if you feel like it. I probably will need it.
Sorry for the long post.
