Enemy: DAMN THIS WORLD.  I DO THESE BAD THINGS BECAUSE X, CAN'T YOU SEE Y, NOW WE MUST FIGHT FOR ME BELIEFS OF Z.

*Battle*

*Party emerges Victorious*

Enemy: ARGH!!  WAS IT ALL FOR NOTHING.  YOU SHITHEADS.
Blah.. x_x

I can't help but feel the game really simplifies the antagonist-hero relationship since the end is spelt out even before the means to do it.  When you're introduced to whatever region's "villains" you already know how it's all gonna go down, at least some of their stories are more captivating than others (Hell, some are actually pretty dark and interesting...just short-lived since you *need* to kill them to obtain their character class).

I do feel that for all the right the plot does (some which are genuinely great developments), it goes back another two steps in other ways.  It's still serviceable and interesting enough.  And I've said it before, but this game is a "successful experiment".  It's so good, but still a lot of room to improve in (like those dungeons...wtf).

Nevertheless, this is a game about it's combat and gameplay.  And music.  I just wish there was more of it.

Absolutely correct. The music is nice, but the lack of variety rears it head after awhile. They have plenty of room for improvement on the sequel and hopefully they get it done right.

At least they made concert versions for all tracks in the game.

Out of the boringness that is chapter 5 and now I've got end game gear/spells and a chest key. Time to hunt some treasure.

Also, I just want to say that Rage is probably the most ridiculous attack in the game. Up to five Dark based hits at 1.25 damage for just one action and 3 Brave, and the skill set it comes with also has an ability that gives you five turns at 150% power at no further cost than a single action, plus a 1 slot support ability that automatically ups the power of all Dark based attacks made by that person, and the P.Atk +30% ability? Hell fucking yeah. Almost 50k in one shot. Sure you'll need to heal and recharge your BP before you can pop another one, but nothing really even comes close to the sheer amount of damage you can dish all at once for the amount of BP it costs.
In my vision, I see that one of us is going to KO the other.

In case people didn't know, the bosses have special lines when you use certain skills in battle.

For example...

Use Susano-o against Barbarossa.

Use Payoff on Khint.

Eliminate both Victor and Victoria at the same time.

The devs think of everything.

Bravely Default sells 10% more copies than FE: Awakening did in its initial weeks.

It's apparently outsold Lightning Returns as well (though that might be a less fair assessment).

^I bet Erren is so happy with the news.

Her dislike for the XIII series always seemed to be like something personal instead of "this bothers me only as a fan".

What's funny about this however (if it's true) is that SQEX didn't wanted to publish Bravely Default because it was a risk they weren't willing to take.

So am I supposed to do the same thing in Chapter 6 as I did in 5? I really don't want to fight the same bosses again. It's so boring, and a bit on the easy side.

Although I'm pretty sure my cheese strategy of spamming those Pirate attacks with Free Lunch is not gonna last long. Neither is my Rampart + Nullify elements really that sustainable.

Yes, but there are some added story bits in Chapter 6.....which are the last new storyline bits for a while.
