Sorry to revive this thread but I finally got around to this game..... Those who have seen my posts know.... I typically LOVE this type of stuff (over the top, cliche anime esque, make your toes curl with lame creepy joke kinda crap...)..... that aside I have a high tolerance for strange mechanics and can forgive ridiculous and obtuse gameplay in light of other things.... but this game requires an entirely new level of tolerance I don't know that I have...

I'm only a few hours in, but I feel as though I've really got a taste of what this has to offer.... And I don't know if I really enjoy the flavor (especially considering I gotta polish off Hyperdimension neptunia 2 before the next one comes out in 2 short months!).....

So I'm hoping someone can offer some insight who has played through a bit of this.... I mean I love a ton about this game visually.... is it worth sticking with it past the first "world" or if I am questioning it already before even conquering that, should I take it to gamestop while I can still get 50 percent extra store credit (LoL)?

Also.... quick question on the DLC... The big appeal of this for me is getting to craft my own custom peons.... If I do decide to keep with it, which DLC would help me with that without breaking the game.... I am sort of confused on all these different "sets" and what they are.... and if I get the point packs, how much will that help or hurt keeping this interesting?

Please advise.... I am lost in a mugen-quagmire right now......

Got no idea about the DLC.  I'd say it's worth moving on past the first world... but like we've all said, it's definitely a game that suffers from overcomplicating itself.

Gave it some thought and time and.... strange as it maybe.... its absolutely horrid mechanics and systems are somehow becoming "comfortable" to me.... I'd go so far as to say "addicting".... in every objective way I can look at this game its just downright bad.... but I'm really starting to like it-LoL

None the less, I think I'm gonna polish off Hyperdimension MK2 before pouring my time into this... I don't want to burn myself out on compile hearts before I finish that and agarest 2....

Thank you for the advice took!

That is awesome info my friend!!! I can't thank you enough! I really had no clue what the sets were at all and I get scared to research anything elsewhere for fear of unintentionally learning about and spoiling other aspects of the game (always happens to me.... I look up something benign and randomly stumble across mega-spoilers every time..... that is why I stick around here.... a good, intelligent, spoiler-free community is tough to find these days)

You kind of describe my entire experience with Hyperdimension Neptunia- All along I knew what I was playing was total crap from every traditional standpoint we review games on.....yet I kept coming back.   I just found the game......amusing. 

Ironically, I did play the sequel for a few hours- they greatly improved the gameplay mechanics but I felt like I was missing the some of the madcap insanity, humor, and it lacked the nonstop references that kept me smiling and I kind of lost interest.
