So I ended up picking up ToG from GameStop. Had a $25 gift card, and I never shop at GS, so whatev.
Started it last night. About 2 hours in so far. Seems nice, but... I'm not finding myself as engaged as I was in Vesperia. Maybe a few more hours things will be different.
Not sure I like how artes work with CC now. It seemed like controlling my characters was a lot easier in ToV...
Holding the fort on old games that play the same as the new ones, minus the $400 price tag.
