    Since Persona 5 and Zelda Breath of the Wild have been mentioned, I will add Cosmic Star Heroine and Rainbow Skies to the list.

    Rainbow Moon was a terrific SRPG and Rainbow Skies looks to be shaping up as a worthy successor. As for Cosmic Star Heroine, the gameplay looks better with the release of each new preview video and I am hoping that we will hear an updated release date soon.

    @jeremy.parish - What's that old saying that when a door closes, a window opens? Perhaps cliche, but it seems appropriate given the tremendous effort you have put into US Gamer. Your insight and perspective will be missed, but you are certainly leaving us in capable hands with Kat. Please tell her that promotion to EIC does not mean she can abandon her dedicated listers on Axe of the Blood God. Best of luck in future endeavors!

    I look forward to revisiting Fire Emblem Path of Radiance and Skies of Arcadia.

    @brionfoulke91 - Agreed. Games that have achieved commercial success are lauded and games that may not have achieved the same level of commercial success, but are no less deserving of deserving of recognition are routinely overlooked at these events. In addition to the overlooked titles that you mentioned, I would add Fire Emblem Fates. Terrible that it was not even mentioned last night.Edited December 2016 by Unknown

    @Kat.Bailey Your review was both fair and insightful. I appreciated learning what you enjoyed about the game as well as where you believe it to have fallen short. I am going into the game with an open mind and hope to enjoy it as much as you did. Thanks again for the great work.

    @Kuni-Nino - Well said. Every review that I read seems to downplay its praise by infusing heavy doses of caution. Kat's review highlights what I believe will be the game's most glaring flaw--the combat system. I suspect this will end up being among the most controversial FF installments.Edited November 2016 by Unknown

    GameStop's disappointing sales likely have more to do with the fact that both Amazon and Best Buy offer 20% discounts on new releases to their customers. Granted, the Amazon discount is limited to Prime members and the Best Buy discount is limited to Gamer's Club Unlocked members, but it is still an incredible value. I moved all of my game purchases to Best Buy several years ago. GameStop needs to find a way to compete with its fellow retailers before it worries about the digital market.

    @lonecow - Like you, I assumed Bravely Second would be the final game in the series. I am certainly glad that Square plans to keep it going.

    As for the recycled worlds and characters, I was not bothered by it so much as I was surprised. As I said, Bravely Second felt less like a stand alone sequel to me than a DLC expansion of the first game. It might be fair to say that my impression was shaped (at least in part) by the extensive amount of time I invested in Bravely Default.

    Either way, I am excited to see what Square has in store.Edited October 2016 by Unknown

    @The-Challenger - Agreed. I loved every minute of the roughly 120 hours I spent with Bravely Default, but the sequel's heavy focus on re-used world assets and characters made it feel more like expansive DLC than an entirely new game.

    I think Square could tie up the loose story threads while introducing new worlds and potentially new characters. Taking into consideration that the sequel sold half as many copies as Bravely Default, Square needs to be careful not to drop the ball.
