I was really happy with Ayesha -- I hope we get this.
I wonder if the gameplay will compensate to make Rosy more about battle system and Eska more about the alchemy??
I'm glad you liked Ayesha, I know you were a bit cautious for a while. I assume it got more interesting for you?
After I discovered the d-pad alchemy options (power pour, transfer, and the other two), I got *infinitely
* more interested.
The game could still use tweaks in the battle system and plot, but I was happy with the product.
Biggest issue was probably the last ten minutes of the main story because it felt so...cheaply done =/
Final Dungeon: two screens
Final Enemies: the same 5 you always run into, re-skinned
Final Boss: ???? (easier than the mecha-dragon, but I guess abusing alchemy will do that).
Resolution: Tio's safe! (Teleport) BYE!
Keith is awesome. Regina sucks ass. I like how she isn't a standout in any way. I'm curious how Nio
is in battle. That was a pleasant surprise.
And while I'm not into cute/whacky anime stereotypes, I thought Odelia was a darling.
