    I’ll only be interested if they do post-game DLC. I wanna know what happened after.

    I’m hoping the update for next fall (the last one) might be that, since it says ‘new story content’.

    From what I can tell Klaus last thing as a god was splitting pyra and mythra into 2 so you can fuck em.

    I’ve spent 140 hours in that game both docked and undocked and I have no idea what people are talking about when they say “optimizatons.” Can you elaborate?

    Why not? She says 3 some in the end and then when you continue you get both girls. Waaaay better than the Nia “love” end fanship ppl are trying to push.

    For example, the memory leak issue that causes texture pop in to take longer, other fixes allowing the dynamic resolution to run higher and not drop as low as often, things like that.

    I want to know the detail on new game+. What are the other blades? These ones that are used by the enemies cuz they look sick as shit. Also I hope unlocked blades carry over because that was the worst part of the game imo
