From what I've seen Geofront is pretty damned good but I played the old leaked patch and it was still pretty good. I say go for it. Playing CS3 (and CS4) without Zero/Ao is criminal in my book. The games are as much a sequel to the Crossbell saga as they are to the first two CS games.

Geofront's Zero also has a turbo mode and backlog. Plus its pretty simple to use a controller for it.

As for Ao, I had to use a torrent though.

Any thoughts on the crossbell games? I found them quite enjoyable, though character wise I think the sky crew (mostly Estelle) hit higher peaks.
Interestingly enough, I personally felt like Sky was too generic in comparison to Crossbell, in terms of its setting, to compare in quality for me. Azure felt a lot like the NT Othinus arc for me ... so I was a big fan, lol, and it's my favorite game in the series atm ... still early on in CS III.

I think Crossbell felt a lot more personal overall and I think it managed to be a lot more effective for me because it was a small hub. It got me to want to 99% Ao, I did everything except the very first hidden quest I accidentally missed, and the only two other games I ever got close to 100%'ing are Bravely Second and Ys VIII.

IMO Crossbell is much more a story of national interests, insane action, intrigue, and mystery than necessarily a character-driven story. Yet, it still manages to craft some really good characters, and I resonate with it a lot more by the end of Ao than all of Sky. Though SC of course holds a special place in my heart.

Some little tidbits about Trails I wanted to mention before
TOWA IS SO CUTE
Fie is fine too
Rixia, why do you have to look like a Senran Kagura character?
Just met Roshi, Lord of Cinder, for the first time and I have to ask, why Sen? Why? There's a time and a place for this sort of thing. This ain't it. This entire franchise ain't it.

Crossbell is a much more interesting place, and the story was filled with lots of twists (some **** just got real moments really made my heart skip a beat) and nuances far above anything in Sky, but by the end of The Third, I was invested with multiple members of the crew (Mostly Estelle, Renne, Joshua, and Olivier) to a level the SSS didn't quite manage to reach, and in fact, my main motivation to start the crossbell games was to see the conclusion for a certain someone's arc. To be clear, Ao and Zero are the better games mechanics and plot-wise, but Sky still has my favorite characters overall, and I really love me some good characters, even if everything else is kinda meh, not just in games, but in general. I'm just biased, really.

As you said, its a more story related game, and it shows with how massive some of the events taking place are. If sky is some weird stuff happening in a little faraway country

Spoiler for Spoiler:


Little bit more relevant in the big scheme of things, I'd say.

Are you implying the finale was NT9/10? I mean, it was huge and cool, but... you know

English CS4 release date is set for October 27! But that only applies to the PS4 version. Switch and PC versions will follow, but not until next year, it seems. Personally hoping for a more solid release date on that Switch version, preferably sooner rather than later....

I can't play the game on PS4 anymore because of that Turbo Mode in CS3 PC...

Hopefully we don't need to wait that long for the PC Version.

Stephanie Sheh and JYB are back as Bestelle and Joshua. Love the rest of the new and returning cast as well.

The kicker in the trailer is featuring Wheel of Time, Phantom Raid and Rising Sun.

As someone who holds Liberl and Crossbell cast closer than the Erebonian cast, life is good.

Just need to make sure I don't get COVID from one of my patients until the end of October.

There's actually a workaround.

I live chatted with PSN support to request a refund due to the game bugging up on PSN pre-order. They refunded my money, which removed the buggy pre-order from my library, then I "re-bought" the game on PSN. It's now downloading properly.

Apparently the wrong game ID licenses were given to the preorders, supposedly in part due to the recent PSN updates.
