Lover of underrated characters
Playing through the Saints Row games(Apart from Gat out of heck cause that game sucks), hyped for the reboot!
Hmm... by "the first game in this franchise is the hardest", do they mean Cold Steel 1, or Sky 1? Because Cold Steel is one arc in the larger Trails franchise that starts with Sky -- and if you haven't heard this elsewhere, most people will recommend that you play the earlier games before you move on to Cold Steel 3. At any rate, 1 probably is the hardest of the Cold Steel games... but I don't think any of them are especially hard, as they all have easily breakable game mechanics. Also, I thought the Sachsen boss was by far the hardest in the game (along with the very last boss, although that's more of a puzzle boss).I finished Trails of Cold Steel 1 last night. Overall I did enjoy this game. I really did. The story was what kept me going for the most part. Plus it's just so much like the Persona series it's scary lol.
I struggled way too much with this game but I was told, repeatedly, that the first game in this franchise is the hardest so we'll see if that's true or not. Regardless I always ended up persevering eventually. The final couple of bosses in the game were a breeze. Which was nice considering the almost-impossible BS I ended up dealing with for the final Old Schoolhouse boss. Hopefully this won't happen with any of the other games. But again we'll see.
Either way I hate cliffhanger endings and I was planning on doing this anyway (because I already knew the first game had a cliffhanger ending beforehand). I'll be playing the next game in the series, Trails of Cold Steel II (2) as soon as possibly tonight. I'm hoping I won't struggle as much with this one and it'll be a lot easier. I guess I'll find out.
