Some more SO5 thoughts

I'm about 6 hours in now, and the game has a nice reference to a certain thing that happens and is relevant to all the games. However, the storyline feels rushed and underdeveloped so far, and it's really hurting the characters as they feel kind of bland. Also there is backtracking which would've been improved with some skip-travel or some more character dialogues while traversing the field.

I guess thankfully my expectations were dampened prior to playing the game due to what I read of Japanese reactions (not direct sources though). Right now the game is at least more fun to play than SO4 for me, so I guess that's one improvement...
