    If I have one small complaint at the end of it, it feels like Vita was the primary platform and PS4 was an afterthought. I'm basing this almost solely on the lack of R2/L2 use and how tiny the combat menu is relative to the entire screen. Not a performance issue, just a UI issue that they didn't seem to feel like improving for PS4 audience.

    I sunk a good 60 hours into this for the true ending and that's still leaving a lot for platinum left undone. Probably one of the best purchases of the year.

    What setup did you use for this fight to have gravity, survival, and I'm guessing some way to get AP back quickly? Thanks.

    Off-hand, I only remember 2 mobs having Gravity, Death Searchers(Searcher line/transfig), and Nightmare I think. Death Searcher is Small, and Nightmare is Medium. Besides those, I don't know what else has gravity. You only need one at least, but 2 gravity users is advised. For restoring AP, you can either use Syphon or items, I use a mix of both. I never bothered to change my Large mob so I honestly don't know what's best since she pretty much uses magic of each element. I guess w/e you can get the most resists in multiple elements that's not low leveled, though that's assuming you use Lilikin and not Jiant.

    I didn't really die that much, but still wanna keep a few of the phoenix downs on hands, but you should have a lot at that point, and even quite a bit of the better ones like mega phoenix.

    How is this for vita? I didn't realize it was on vita too and mine is collecting dust. Hard to beat $24.99 if it's decent.

    Framerate being bad at times (which has zero bearing on the gameplay fortunately), it's a fully playable version of the same game on PS4, albeit a little muddy at times due to sub-native resolution and low texture filtering.


    Just be sure that you have 700mb some extra space free regardless of physical/digital, since the game doesn't come with any voice acting preinstalled to skirt around the 3.5gb filesize limitation Sony enforces on Vita releases. Rather it's patched in via free DLC download.

    One thing that doesn't make sense to me in the story is:

    Spoiler: show
    In the beginning they show a few scenes of the girl int he cube conversing with Brandelis, almost makes it seem like they are in league with each other. Then, near the end you find out the girl in the cube is Auwyn, who is actually our ally. Why was Auwyn helping Brandelis in the beginning?

    IIRC she was talking to the plumed knight, which as you recall is the body of their mother who is incredibly difficult to control. I imagine she was talking to the mother during one of these moments.

    If anyone hasn't got it yet I highly recommend the new WOFF PS4 Static Theme on PS Store, absolutely amazing. It's been awhile since I've seen a theme I've liked as much as this one, and to boot, it has the game's town music as its theme.

    Found a video of the theme
