I got this earlier this month and have been playing it off and on. It's kind of fun but the time limit really pissed me off. I know that @Derosis also bought it recently. Wondering if anyone else has it or has played it?
I'm having a lot of trouble and it's beginning to make me wonder if I'm missing some fundamental piece of the game. I replace old characters with newer, stronger ones (my party is almost always Melvia and Sterk from the second either is available) because no other characters compare... which seems kind of ridiculous for a game that is so intent on character interaction. And I see that sometimes there are items with attack+5 stats or whatever but I don't understand why they would have that. By the time I get my cobalt license, I can't beat anything in those areas.
I've played through it once and got the bad ending because I still needed like 500 points for my final license. Now I'm on my second playthrough, getting whooped by the Flauschtrout with a year and a half left but it still looks grim for the final license. What the hell could I possibly be missing?
