Bravely Default Chapter Two
This is either the best chapter ever or the saddest thing I have yet experienced in a video game. Possibly both.
Enjoying the game thus far, though. The demo was pretty fun, and I haven't played an RPG style game like this since Golden Sun Dark Dawn (only other final fantasyesque game I have ever played). The characters are really enjoyable, albiet Ringabel who lays it on a bit too rich for my taste. The book is not helping. Edea has so much going on with her character, it's hard not to like her. Tiz is inhuman due to the fact he seems almost perfectly fine with his entire village being destroyed. Like, I expected some vivid nightmares, huge amounts of undeserving guilt and constantly questioning his will to live to the point where he develops some sort of mental disorder, but no, it's cool. Just follow the nearest random girl and devote your life to her. Oh, but don't pursue a relationship, no. Just dance around the notion for the entire game and tick me off in the process with awkward hints at a frustrating idea of romance. Freaking Tiz... (though he does have trouble sleeping at night, and while he writes it off as his surroundings being too noisy or bright, maybe he's hiding his angst and the real reason is because he went through something traumatic? Or maybe I'm giving him too much credit)
Agnes is very much interesting, though. She seems very determined and very focused, albiet clueless. And, to be honest, her cluelessness makes me like her character even more because it fits with her backstory to a tee.
Bravely Default? I thought you said Gravy Sea Salt!
