I'm a pretty big Gust fan, but Yoru no Nai Kuni left me disappointed and so did Atelier Shallie, so I'm really hoping that Sophie ends up making up for it. We're in an awkward transition phase between consoles right now so I'm hoping that is mostly the source of Gust's recent troubles.
I won't be doing any story summaries or whatever as I play this time, just because I'm really busy in real life right now. Hopefully things will clear up a bit after the holiday season is over and I can start blogging about games again after the new year. Obviously I'll still put a review up of Sophie after I'm done playing it, but I probably won't make incremental playthrough posts this time, sorry if anyone was looking forward to that.
