Can't believe this game got made honestly (in a good way). Anyone else pick it up? I'll miss the battle system from the first game, but basically everything else about that game was good, too, and still seems to be present

1 is amazing. Are you playing on 3DS? Combat's still cool on the ports but the original has gotta have one of the coolest dual screen gimmicks I've ever seen

This game is loving cool. I'm on day 5 and only now is the combat system really starting to click, it feels button mashy at first but eventually you realize you're much better off by managing the pin cooldowns so they synergize with each other's effects. I like how new gameplay systems keep unlocking what feels like every 5 minutes.

Also even though it's still got the linear structure of the first game theyve included side quests with some really interesting and worthwhile rewards and it seems like the main story missions themselves are a little more open than TWEWY. Like on the last one I did there are a bunch of little puzzles to solve and quests to do in order to fight the boss as usual, but you can also just go fight a very hard version him before finishing any of those, and each one you complete weakens him a little

love games that do this...

IT youve played the first one right? I don't remember. Definitely dont recommend starting with this one for anyone who hasn't, the story picks up as if the first game came out a year or two ago and you remember it clearly, which is really funny for a sequel to a game from 2007

Yeah I think playing on an iPad or iPhone is the next best thing to DS but DS is still highly preferable. I can imagine it being kind of awkward in an emulator too but I've never tried

NEO is getting pretty tough after the first week, I'm trying to stay on hard mode but this chameleon noise boss can gently caress off

does the extra story stuff from the later releases matter in the new game? I played the DS version at release and have probably forgotten most of it but I'll be very sad if the plot picks up after the loving iPhone port or whatever

At least as of the second week I feel like the game assumes you played the first game but also assumes it's been a decade and you don't remember every bit of esoteric plot stuff.
