I was interested in playing the original Bravely Default game, but never got around to it. I’ve been in an RPG mood of late, and my first instinct was to play that game, but when I checked our company lending library it was already out, and so I decided to go for its sequel, Bravely Second, which was available. I’m about 3 hours in, and enjoying it quite a bit. Initially, it was the overall look that really grabbed me, from the character designs to all of the environments, that look quite distinct. Then, I started appreciating how interesting the “brave” and “default” aspects of the combat system work, which add a neat level of strategy. And now I’m also really into the soundtrack, which is a joy to listen to. So happy I picked this up to play, it’s going to make for some nice holiday memories.
