So I know David has been beating the crap out of this game, and Andrew's started it. Anyone else around here playing it?

Will be picking it up from the Library soon after I beat the first.

I finished it a couple of night ago. Loved the first one, and have quite enjoyed this one. There are some frustrating little bits here and there, but overall it's a lot of fun, with some pretty solid ideas. Will probably play through it again sometime soon

I beat it this morning. Really satisfying ending. Overall the game is less frustrating than the first. I think they might be setting it up for a third game though. I didn't really know how I felt about a second game, so I'm really not sure how I feel about the possibility of a third.

Would you say it's significantly less irritatingly repetitive towards the endgame?

Without giving too much away, yes. Definitely.

I remain sceptical, but more likely to play it, hearing that.

I'll back Crystal up on that, it is far less monotonous.

Pretty much completed it, actually. Just beat the postgame bonus boss today, and also found a piece of catnip lying in a corner somewhere, which is a bigger deal than it sounds because it was literally the only thing in the world I hadn't picked up. I think the only title I'm missing now requires spending a few hours making Chomper dolls.

I kind of wonder how this post looks to someone who doesn't know the game.

Intriguing, but I'm not exactly a stranger to JRPGs.

Yeah, I did everything I wanted to with the game. Still unsure where I would want the series to go, if anywhere.
