Game Night!: This weekend! https://www.facebook.com/events/317792721696252/
I didn't like the battle system, but at least it was the first of it's kind. The whole "you get HP xp for every hit you take" thing was a little flawed imo. I also wasn't a fan of the temporary party members. The story was more complex though then the first one and involved the memorization of keywords.
