    Ooohhh… looks cool.

    I’m certainly up for this; I burned out eventually about 1/3 through the second half – or, more technically, second ‘game’ – of Op Abyss (being that it packaged two remakes into one entity), but I was genuinely enjoying the ins and outs of the game & only suffered burnout due to the excessively interminable grind coupled with diminishing combat returns. Signs point to improvement in cohesion and concision with the third game, which became Op Babel.

    Regarding characters, I express mild surprise – having, as noted, left Op Abyss unfinished – that everybody major survived to grace Op Babel. Alice Mifune looks totally sweet as a playable roster addition, however, roundly mitigating any consternation. Hah!

    Anyhow, yeah, this is squarely on my radar for sure. Good show, NISA.
