So this is Dead Rising minus the unending tide of zombies.
A message to all developers, could you please stop trying to "reinvent" your franchises, because you're getting rather bad at it.
Final Fantasy IX was the pinnacle of the series thus far, it's telling that the side games now have a tendency to be better than the main entries in the franchise.
Square Enix I respectfully suggest outsourcing all future Final Fantasy titles to a company called Mistwalker, I believe you are familiar with their boss, because if this keeps up I think you'll have to retire the franchise.
