So, I'm about halfway through the second episode, and so far I am digging the hell out of this game.
The first trial with Mia was a lot more involved than I thought a tutorial chapter would be, and young Phoenix was quite hilarious. I've heard WONDERFUL things about the fifth episode, too, so there's that to look forward to playing.
Part of the reason I haven't posted the thread is simply because I'm only a fraction of the way through. So many unlockables, as already mentioned, and satisfying fetch quests make this a slow run-through. But holy crap, they nailed everything!
