Scarlet Nexus was a massive disappointment. On paper it should have been a great game but so many areas were so poorly executed that when added together were just too much for me to tolerate. I think the aspect I disliked the most was how they presented the story by forcing it into two separate runs. Had they instead ping-ponged back and forth each chapter, I feel it would have helped the story flow better vs. characters just appearing for 0 reason and exposition dumping you with made up words and massive spoilers then bouncing back as quickly as they came. 

 

I sold it off and picked up MonHun Stories 2 and also splurged to get Y's IX.

It also makes the decision for Ghost of Tsushima's $20/$30 upgrade path look even more ridiculous. I will gladly pay $10 to play through DS again with all the new content.

Mine arrived to day as well but have not had a chance to give the game a go since redeeming it.

Will have to keep a look out on the next AI game. Never did play the first one but will have to give it at go since I enjoyed the Zero Escape games. Now look, I love heterochromia as much as the next person, and maybe it's just me, but it seems like everything coming out of Japan now has at least one character with this trait. It reminds me of when RE: was all the rage for naming conventions a couple years back. 

 

 

BTW Amazon has preorders up for Ai: The Somnium Files - Nirvana Initiative (Collector's Edition).

You’re not going to grind out the money to pay off your debt???

And I second your thoughts, SN is much more like God Eater then Tales.

God Eater 3 is probably a better comparison at least for the combat while the rest of the game reminds me a lot of Berseria. Neither of these are really a bad thing but I do hope they can expand and improve on the framework in the inevitable sequels. 

 

Xilla 2 was terrible, full stop. I really wanted to like that one but the silent protag and debt system just killed all the fun there was to be had. Shame too since Xilla 1 was a great game. Speaking of Xilla and SN, maybe I will play through both routes this time around.
