I just finished Ni No Kuni II. The game time was 28:51:57.

It was a solid action RPG with some interesting mechanics. The most annoying part was the city building piece that had a borderline mobile game feel to it. You were required to do it to advance the story. and building up resources was simply waiting for them to build up. This caused me to hit my storage cap prior to collection after playing for a few hours. then need more to progress further.

Otherwise, this felt like a pretty great JRPG with action combat, cool visuals, and a decent story. I’d give it a solid 7/10.

You should have just made LA do the mobile game parts :laughing:


#4

Those parts wouldn’t have been bad if I could farm for resources on my own. Having to wait for resources to generate, research to finish, etc is stupid in a PC game.


#5

I completed the first DLC for Spiderman, “The Heist”.

It was fairly short, which made me a bit sad. It added some interesting new challenges, a new set of collectables, and some new crimes in the city. I suspect all of the DLCs are short since there are three of them that are part of a larger “The City That Never Sleeps” story. I don’t think it is super fair to rate DLC, but if you liked the base game, it is more web slinging action, and you learn more about Black Cat.


#6

How many DLCs are there?


#7

Three so far. I’m not sure if they are doing more.


#8

I beat some more Spiderman at some point, it was great.

I just beat Kingdom Hearts 3 as well. The game was fun. The story was convoluted as hell, but the combat was entertaining. You feel extremely powerful through the entire game.


#9

So it was too easy?


#10

Yeah, I really only had trouble with the last boss fight. Every other encounter felt trivial to beat. If youre familiar with the style I’d actually recommend proud mode right off the bat.


#11

We just got to the Little Mermaid world in KH1
