I only have a handful of items to master. I'm in NewGame+ Bloodline 55, each titan is dropping between 25,000 and 50,000 gold. The only weapons I have left to master are all hidden in the prize wheels. My character level is 123.

The game is very good, but so short. I would love to see a large game studio take this concept and build a full length game with it. Imagine if the castle was just one level of ten or so levels. Taking your character into a wide variety of areas would be problematic with the limited space on an iPad but it is where the game needs to go. Epic/Chair managed to build a dojo and one castle into the game and it takes a little over 1GB, so I imagine a larger game would push into the 5 to 10GB range. As flash storage gets cheaper the storage space on the iPad can grow to 128GB. Maybe that can give developers the space they need to build console quality games on iOS.

I think you hit the nail in the head. When iDevices reach their, say, 8th generation and have larger memories (say, around 100 Gb) we should start seeing console quality games. Right now, games have to cater to most iDevices to make money, including the ones that have 8 or 16 Gb memory. But when that changes we will be able to see the real possibilities of these platforms.

I wouldn't say the game is short when you consider it as an action game and not an open world RPG like so many people think it should be. With no less than 50 battles to complete a playthrough it's actually quite long, and with more content on the way. I really enjoy the challenge and skill involved in the fighting mechanics that you rarely find in action RPGs. And I would love a solid RPG with the Unreal engine, but I don't think that Infinity is that game or should be. The new title from Square Enix/Epic will probably have more of that but I imagine it will probably be closer to Chaos Rings than Infinity Blade in gameplay.

You're right about space though. A game like Skyrim is just way too big for iOS right now, but I think it will get there. Just look at how much iPhone game have changed in the last year or 2. Still more locations wouldn't be a bad thing and I would really at least like to see Saydhi's palace expanded in updates. But right now I am more than satisfied with the content in IB2 and can't stop playing it.

I wonder what console games will be like once they reach the 8th generation, then.

I disagree the game is quite short. You'd have to play many hours before you can beat GK and by that time the game is no longer short. Some of the areas also change over time to get variety and there's s much stuff to master (or you can cheat and just use money to master everything). Plus they're adding in new areas, items, and clash mobs so the game is quite big.

Having played as long as you must have to get to NG+ bloodline 55, I imagine you've gotten your money's worth anyway

If you restart from rebirth 1 from you ng+ slot it should take you back to rebirth 1^1 and you can play through again as far as you want, but make sure you have updated to 1.02 as it now lets you enter ng+ at your current level whereas before it automatically started ng+ whenever you defeat the Gk the first time.

Can anyone tell me what NG+ does here in Infinity Blade 2? I haven't really explored the entire inventory yet but it seems as though the only benefit is that I could master items a second time around (just like in IB1), but that's about it. I don't see any other weapons or armor getting unlocked in NG+. Can someone explain? I'm kinda thinking I shouldn't have migrated to NG+ yet.

Not really...if you try that "The Bard's Tale" you will find it is really nicely done with console quality, also give you 30+ hours gameplay. Hum...the game itself is 1.7GB after installation.
