I've heard so much praise for this game but should I wait till it hits the bargain bin more if I never really got int this style of game? Or is it a good into RPG/JRPG?
Eh -- I've heard the opposite. While I was excited that Studio Ghibli was involved, the reviews were less than spectacular, It sounds like it is pretty much a traditional turn-based JRPG with a coating of Ghibli, and while that's not necessarily a bad thing, that made me move the game from a must buy to a bargain bin. I'm waiting for $19.99 too since Sony over-published and sales of this one generally fell flat compared to expectations (which were admittedly inflated).
The game has an average of 8.5 according to metacritic and almost every review I've seen was in the 8 - 10 range. Only a few places tossed it in the 6 range, which were often seen as wrong or stupid, which isn't shocking due to how awful some people in this community is. The main reason we're seeing this discounted is due to the weak box art (believe it or not, awesome box art DOES help sell a game), the weird name, niche demographic that it caters to and people saving money for next gen.
