If nothing else, you'll want to look it up on Youtube or something. It's worth seeing! Man, there are so many spergy fan theories about every little dang thing in this game. I much prefer the simpler things at this point.
It's only $10, and with how Steam sales have been these past few years, the best you'll probably save is like $3. As for this single dude's game appearing elsewhere, I'll repeat that there are reasons why that may be incredibly difficult to occur. I want as many people as possible to try the game out, but the PC-averse are probably just going to completely miss out on what I think is a real gem. I'd also like to go on record that all the baggage that comes along with what people typically associate with JRPGs isn't present in this little game, aside from the quirk that apparently Japan has cornered the big budget market on.
I'm bad about that thinking after the fact. I'm still spinning around asking myself how anyone found anything that was gameplay in MGSV anything but dumb, boring bullshit (compared to the insane, twisted bullshit of previous games I found so endearing).
I run into the whole expectations relative to hype thing a lot, and completely expected it to happen with this game for me. The circles of the internet I frequent were choking on fan art and various spins on "PLAY THIS," so I fully expected to wind up like how you appear to be. Instead, I'm one of THEM. The best thing would have been to go into blind, but that's pretty much impossible these days.
I suppose all we can hope for is that the game's relative acclaim grabs the attention of the wizards at Sony's third party relationships team. However, certain aspects of how the game works makes me think that it'll be impossible for the game to work outside of PC. And to explain them would rob the game of some of its more powerful moments! So, enjoy more vague nonsense.
Such DETERMINATION! I've done three. The other playthroughs are significantly quicker due to just knowing most everything going on. First time I did whatever. Second time was my pacifist run. Third run was killing everything and being MISERABLE (A good run for most others to just watch on Youtube!)
I do want to stress playing however the heck you feel like when you first take on the game. There's definitely no "right" way to anything. And it is a valid criticism that the ruins are kind of lame, especially in retrospect. Luckily it's not a "play 20 hours for the good stuff" situation.
