I still have yet to go back to the first after stopping only a couple hours in. I loved the little of the nemesis system I saw, but something about that world just bores me, even though I have seen how unpredictable and fun it can be in later stages of the game with additional powers.
Dunno if anyone’s been playing or paying attention to this game, but there’s a big “important” update coming this month. Among some story changes in the late game, they’re getting rid of the lootbox system.
I ended up picking it up on sale on PC this weekend, and I’ve been having a blast with it. Lots of fun, especially if you enjoyed the first game.
