Ok, so I'm gonna put in my two cents here.

From a completionist perspective, and a principal perspective, I agree with everything that has been said so far in argument AGAINST PoNR. They are extremely stupid, and all they serve to do is piss people off.

From a gameplay perspective (I know most of you don't care about this aspect, but for the ones that do), it's not a big deal. At all. I've missed a crapload of summon tablets so far. But they are un-needed. Yeah they make things easier. But I'm sure most will agree with me that making things easier in this game is the last thing this game needs. I personally don't like summons, and prefer to fight with the abilities I have on hand. Even in the first two, I fought with my weapon and my psynergy, even if it meant grinding a bit. It just adds a bit of challenge to the game in my opinion, something this game sorely needs. (And even then, it's disappointing. I've not died at any boss yet just normally leveling up and using the psynergy available at hand. Giving Karis a MT healing move doesn't help either.)

Now, as far as the Djinn goes, I will say that missing those is a big letdown. However, it really only shows its downside if you miss 8 or more. At the end of the game, you'll most likely be using one team exclusively. This means that for each character on your main team to have 9 Djinn, you have to miss 4 or less, preferably 1 of each if you had to. After that, each missed Djinn is basically equivalent to the inability to access the "final" class for one of your main team's members, ending at 8 missed, which eliminates all final classes altogether.

Is this bad? No. Not the way this game is shaping up to be. I'm even seriously considering using the "7" Djinn classes end-game, just to TRY and make this game even a fraction harder. Having access to the Ronin class and the like just seems like so much overkill in this game. Of course, this is simply my opinion, and nothing more. However, if you happen to miss a bunch of Djinn, remember that the "7" Djinn classes from the original GS will most likely still be available for your entire main team, and probably your entire back-up team. And those are still plenty powerful.

In short, just enjoy the game. Worrying too much about what you missed will only ruin the game for you, even if you aren't a completionist. At the end of the game, anything I missed I'll just deal with, and I'll work with what I have. After all, it's an RPG, Role-Playing. In taking on the role of the hero, you put yourself in his shoes, and think how you would react to this and that. In this manner, at the end of the game, if you were truly in his shoes, you'd have no knowledge that you missed anything. You'd make due with what you had, most likely oblivious to the fact that there were more Djinn out there to collect.

I dunno, that's my opinion. Take it as you will. *shrug* PoNRs still suck. I'm not trying to say they don't. But it's not the end of the world.


You can beat the game intentionally missing all possible djinn missable and not grinding, so... ...

I really forgot I was tracking this thread. Lol. I'm really hoping for a 3rd game though. Maybe a little less chatty this time around though lol

Popular opinion and fact are not the same thing. Think for yourself.
