@mento:The infinite Ferrystone you get for having vanilla DD on your hard drive and the number of extra portalstones in Dark Arisen remove most of the problems I had with Dragon's Dogma, at least as far as traversal is concerned. It's still Dragon's Dogma, so if there were other things that turned you off (if you got to level 30, then you clearly played a respectable amount) any of the other small tweaks won't be enough to change your mind. But I'm also part of that contingent who really loves Dragon's Dogma, so they were excuse enough for me to jump back in.
I think Blood Dragon is actually better than the original in some ways because it doesn't wear out its welcome the way vanilla FC3 does. As evidenced by my love of Might and Magic VII, Temple of Elemental Evil and Dishonored, I guess I do like smaller, more compact experiences.
but it was a decent enough game. Well, until the final chapter at least.
I could see how someone wouldn't like the final chapter of that game. While I expect the final chapter of any given ace attorney game to be crazy and over-the-top, the final encounter of Edgeworth may draw the line with how protracted it gets. I guess I'm far more interested in AA5 since it's confirmed a western release, but my inner completionist hates that there's a game in the series that I can't play without resorting to overly-literal fan translations, regardless of quality.
