I also just got the email this released. I preregistered and all that but I'm not actually sure if I want to play it. Bamco is notorious in the mobage world for bad practices and terrible gachas. However they still get the money because Bamco owns a lot of the biggest names and they're the only ones producing those games.

I'm still playing SAO Memory Defrag mainly because I've spent too much time and money into that game. The game is heavily pvp, rank, and gacha focused. Powercreep is also a huge factor in MD. If I knew beforehand all these "features" I wouldn't have started but now I'm in too deep. I'm expecting this game to be no different unfortunately.

Ah, I like SAO Memory Defrag too!

I only finished it in story mode.

SAO Memory Defrag Story-mode alone is a rich experience, and it gives me memories.

I was able to feel the precious impressions that I felt after the SAO anime broadcast again with different feeling through the SAO MD game.

If the new series game released this time has a story mode, I guess I will play this game on the way of enjoying the story.

The attached screenshot is about the SAO MD.
For a screenshot of the new game, see #6 post.

Maybe 200MB. It looks that way on my iPhone.

However, this game seems to be sending and receiving Internet data from time to time. Therefore, the game data may be larger.

Worse than the first game

SAO Memory Defrag had great sprite work and colorful visuals with fun gameplay mechanics. This game however, looks like total crap on my iPad Pro. It is SO blurry looking that I get eye strain after about 5 mins. The colors look so washed out. I can't seem to improve anything in the settings menu. Despite all this, this game is nothing but a poor remake of Memory Defrag. Same story, same characters, same concept of collecting gems and coins to purchase items and having a blacksmith upgrade them. The only changes are that this time your are a new character that plays part of the story and the obvious fact that you run around in 3D. Not even the gatcha aspect seems interesting. Lame skills for a lame game. I beg you all not to spend money on this!
