I found out about this game via spamming videos relating to it on Atlus’ YouTube channel. Maybe spam isn’t the right word, but that’s what it felt like at the time.
Having finished a new 3DS game, I renewed PS+ and decided to try some of the “free” games I’d been hoarding. Memory space was an issue, so I figured I’d try this demo so I could delete it.
A lot of people compare this to Earthbound, but I’ve never played it.
sorry not sorry I do see how one can come to that conclusion, however.
The game begins with you waking up… at your mothers. Before you leave the house, she will join your party. You also recruit your brother via a short chain of events, which I guess serve as a tutorial. He gives you a tablet, and one of it’s features is to keep track of all your quests. Given how many I unlocked during the demo, it’s much appreciated. It also serves as your menu to access everything you’d expect a menu to have.
The demo itself is rather short, so I don’t think I can really get in to things like game play, etc. What sticks out most to me is not a positive thing, however.
I thought the reasons for this was due to my way too full memory card. But judging from what I Googled up, nope. This game just runs kind of shit.
Go downstairs? Load.
Go outside? Load.
Go into battle? Lo… oh, no load.
The demo area is a town with buildings, leading you to too many loading screens.
I’ve seen comments saying Wii U runs worse than Vita, and that 3DS version crashes. It all sounds… rather nightmareish.
It’s kind of a shame, because this is a game I was interested in. Now it’s been regulated to the back of my mind, and the only chance of me playing this will be as a gift, a huge Steam Sale discount, as PS+, or whatever equivalent.
