I'm only reading some of this thread now in case spoilers, and haven't checked out @OpenC's review yet (sorry  C [emoji38]). But, how do you make decent money in this game? My party has just expanded to 4 and it feels like everything is way too expensive for me still (and yes I spent too much at that weird cinema but that's a decision I stand by :lol:)

Money is short early game, definitely. Have you opened the pawn shop? Business game also helps :)

 

I think you're supposed to feel like you can't afford the good stuff for a while, though, it's part of the working your way back theme.

Selling all the shite you find lying around can get you a canny purse as well, although obviously it'll restrict your upgrade/craft potential. I went into the workshop with bags and bags of shit I'd found and could never upgrade anything I really wanted to upgrade or craft anything that looked better than I already had, though, even after donating a bit of post-boss cash to the woman so she could do better stuff. So, I stopped worrying about that pretty quickly and just sold everything so I could buy posh gear at le chatte blanche.

Aye, well, you're probably aware of my feelings on collecting shit to make new stuff in games by now :lol: was clear that was going to be the case but was also clear that it was going to be a fuck on so I didn't think twice :lol:  I got through absolutely fine without using it at all. Might struggle with the post game I guess, but if I do I'll just stop :lol:

While I'm on the subject of things I didn't do (no spoilers here I don't think), I also didn't bother having many long conversations with my friends in the bar since it instantly felt a bit Persona and I kept accidentally saying something inappropriate as I was hammering the buttons to get through the pages of text and suddenly it wanted me to contribute :lol:

 

I never went on the kart, I never even noticed a cinema, there are people all over town waiting for me to come back for substories (I've even got some of the things I need to complete the substories), I didn't try most of the poundmates, I didn't play the game with the old dude outside the homeless camp, the list is pretty long :lol:

 

There's plenty I just didn't bother with. I played it like an old RPG and hoped I'd get away with ignoring the bits I wasn't interested in, and it was fucking brilliant. It's good that there are additional mechanics to explore if you're interested, but it doesn't force you to if you're not.
