    Nights Of Azure 2 – Bride of the New Moon – Review – PS4 – Tarks Gauntlet

    Please login to search this video.

    Nights of Azure 1 was a catalyst to me. It showed me that just because characters come wrapped with very little clothes it doesn't mean they come wrapped with very little emotion.

    The game's had a lasting effect on me that I won't soon forget, but it's also this effect that had made me skeptical that a follow up game just couldn't be as good. That a follow up game would be more of a cash in and abandon what made me love it so much in lieu of cheaper easier sales.

    Is my skepticism unfounded? Find out!

    1. I don't like gameplay of the 1st game, this one looks fun, but I dunno what to think about it. Dunno if I like the lesbian aspect, it doesn't bother me, but it's not something I can get invested into, so if it's mandatory for the good ending, I don't really know what to think… and I also hate timers. I wanted to try this game, because it looked like a fast paced, but still chill experience with a lot of sex appeal, but I don't know now.

    3. Ha! I bet you thought I completely forgot about this but nope. I just had to find the correct time for this.

      0:42 Yep, I normally dont care much (Read: at all) about a game´s story/setting, but I have to admit I was actually quite invested in the narrative of the original NoA, too.
      I was actually quite hyped for the sequel, I saw NoA 1 as a good game at its core, but with a fair amount of flaws- the perfect candidate for a sequel to polish em….

      4:43 I am most definitely not to be included in this "Nearly everybody" 🙂
      I get your argument about you not having much of an impact in the fights of NoA 1, its true they went a bit overboard with it. I think Arnice should be a bit more powerful, and only have 3 Servans in the field, 4 seems a bit overkill.
      However, if I wanted to be the sole contributor to the fights… well, I already have quite a lot of other action games for that.
      I liked the Servan system better on NoA 1 because it dared to use a very rare/unique concept, and the fact that NoA 2 decides to just abandon it (They didnt even bother to fix it!) instead of improving on it saddens me to this day.
      The combat of NoA 2 has already been done a million times before…not to mention has a fair amount of issues (These damn repetitive cutscenes!) of its own, IMHO.

      6:50 I actually liked the time system better on NoA 2 than on how meaningless/irrelevant it was on NoA 1…. It makes you plan your limited trips to each place according to quests and characters and such. Thats a small point in favor of NoA 2!
      Not surprised I am in the minority here, it is to be expected. Most people dont enjoy timers like these. While I enjoyned this mechanic, I certainly wouldt miss it if it was gone either.

      8:33 R.I.P. Arena. It was a cool place for some extra challenges…. honestly if you ask me theres zero reason to not have it.

      9:50 My god. I wouldt be able to STAND playing the Switch version! And I thought my PC had bad framerate issues…

      11:35 Oh no… this guy… Why would you make me remember this :/

      12:19 Because the previous game was, while fanservice/yuri heavy, still actually trying to make them seem like an actual couple with real interactions and such.
      Meanwhile, this game is more like "HEY LOOK GUYS!!! YURI!! YURI EVERYWHERE NOTICE US!!!!!!1111" with the +5 girls you have…
      Sorry if that sounds harsh, but thats honestly what I think happened here, and the root of many of the issues I have with NoA 2. They put fanservice above everything.
      I dont see how this game in any way, shape or form, more serious than NoA 1. I cant.

      13:12 & 13:50 Oh booooy… lets just say I disagree 😛

      14:07 LOL

      Well. You make some fair points, but I still cant quite agree with NoA 2 being an improvement on… its an OK game, but I think the original is still better in practically every single area (Combat, OST, Characters/Story, etc).
      Despite this, I liked the video and I will Sub! (Yes I know that might seem a bit contradictory since I dont agree with some of your points but uhhh its okay right?)

      PD: Ruen is indeed the best girl in this game. Both in a character/personality sense and also in actual practical tier use (The Shield is OP).

    4. Wow, the timer sucks. The timer didn't bother me in the first game because you can basically go as many times as you want. But this is some FF13 Lightning Returns shit.

    5. Try playing one hand on the controller and other hand in your pants. (fap) I'm so glad I didn't buy this game the level from the 1st game is odd. this one killed it from me from buying it. fuck this shit. I'll just stick with rule 34 hentai.

    6. Seems they were going for something differnt which is fine and it seems they learned that letting players grind infinitely allowed players to break the game altho I'm alil disappointed that it seems like you'll only have the 1 weapon

    7. after playing the first game i want to play the sequel, but gust just dont have time to optimize their game. i can play berseria just fine but this game is unplayable on my potato.
