I'm done with Radiant Historia, except I still need to finish the Possible History stuff. Will probably take care of that very casually which probably means that I will never do it.

Overall a solid game. The characters were fine, although sometimes it felt like they didn't really have many flaws. Stocke was a cool protagonist, but he was a little too "perfect" for my liking. Eruca was fine. I wish Aht had more personality than just "I love Stocke!" but I didn't really have any issues with her, and she was probably one of the most entertaining party members in battle. Marco and Rosch were whatever. Gafka was great. Raynie was cool, except her romance with Stocke was so badly implemented. I honestly don't even know why they bothered with that nonsense. Literally two short scenes that both came out of left field. I liked the characters, but it's weird because I don't have any strong opinions regarding any of them. I don't actively love or hate any of them. I guess my impression is a step above lukewarm?

I enjoyed the story for what it was. The pacing was great, and the dialogue was well done, although the game certainly does have its fair share of generic JRPG crap. But it's all an immense step up from FFX, and everything is relative. I feel like Heiss had the right ingredients to be an excellent villain, but he's barely in the game. I only recall him playing a major role in the beginning and the end, so it became kind of hard to empathize with him. He clearly loves Stocke dearly, but that relationship never felt like it was thoroughly explored. I also don't really get why Stocke didn't get his memories back? Like I guess there's this multi-year gap in his memory that he'll never get back? Protea was literally a non-character as far as I'm concerned, and Dias and Selvan turned out to be jokes. You don't even fight them in the end.

The gameplay is largely what kept me going. I usually hate doing sidequests, but I actually wanted to do them so I could get better equipment and fight more battles. I do wish the game had more music variety though. What it has is fantastic, but you hear the same songs over and over again, and they get kind of stale.

Overall a solid game.
