Normally I try to post screenshots in chronological order, but Lost Odyssey has really been screwing me with the screenshot order lately and I can’t be bothered to fix them again. Part of the problem is that I started playing this way back in December, which means the screenshots had a 12- prefix that came after the 1- prefix automatically tacked on to them once the new year rolled around, and trying to fix that only caused them to be even more disorganized. As for the actual game, though, it’s okay. I certainly remembered it being quite a bit better overall than it actually was, but the little stories you find littered throughout are as memorable and gut-punching as I remembered. The rest of the game is kind of bland and generic, though, with a stupid plot filled with holes and characters possessing a special brand of stupidity until the situation requires somebody to remember something weirdly obscure and relevant to push everyone on further. Oh, and the random gimmicks! Infuriating. But hey, those little (mostly unrelated) stories make the whole thing worth it in the end, even if the rest of the game fails to live up to them.
