Agreed good sir. I had to put a TB Drive into my ps3 and I'm guessing the ps4 won't be to long in the coming either though I'm hoping I can hold off til 3 and 4 TB drives are more readily available and cheaper.

I saw the mediocre review for this game on the main page but what stood out to me was the art. I feel like that's the best sprite work I've ever seen in a Kemco game that's tempting me to buy this.

However they did mention one of my irritations is that map movement looks super fake and stiff in pretty much every Kemco game.

Ok so I just beat the game it took about 7 1/2 hours. Some of the final battles in the game are the only really challenging parts. Now that I've finished it informs me that there are multiple endings. Anyone know anything about this?

Ok so after starting the game again it clearly describes what you need to do to get the "Good" ending and after the previous final fight it was much easier. Once you beat the game again (you start from right before the final dungeon) you unlock some sub quests and a battle arena. I'm not really going to delve into that I had fun with the game it was quick and not very difficult but still entertaining albeit a bit generic. On to Band of Monsters.

Very disappointed with this one. Seems like they phoned it in.

Battles (on normal) have virtually no strategy. Almost never saw any status effects applied or had need of them myself. Just throw down dmg until you win. Bosses included.

The magic system is inscrutable and perplexing. There's no feedback on spending skill points, and you don't get nearly enough to properly experiment.

The dungeons are all virtually identical consisting of three linear screens with scattered treasure followed by a save point and boss.

Equipment is bland until post game. Pure min max.

Plot is ok. Characters are ok (if unbalanced). The few sub quests there are range from the typical kill X beasts down to bizarrely minimalist "go talk to this other person in the next house over".

Post game content was decent. IAPs non-intrusive -- I never made a purchase.

All that said, I enjoyed it and felt it was worth the money I spent on it. But if you're on the fence, I would suggest grabbing almost any other kemco rpg before this. Journey to kreisia for example is far superior in my opinion.

On to band of monsters.
