Rental?

Hmm this doesn't seem like a very active forum..

Anyway, i'm planning on renting this tomorrow to play over the weekend. I assume this is easily beatable in that time going by the roadmap, but considering I can probably find the game preowned for not that much more, should this be a rental or is the replay-in-6-months value high enough to warrant a purchase?

I never played the first game. Is that a disadvatnage when it comes to the story and lore?

It doesn't take long at all to get the full 1000 GS. The only problem I had was the Dolfo mini game (shooting 13 bottles in 10 seconds). Overall I enjoyed the game, but not enough to buy. I rented it and had it sent back within two days.

I know I'm super late on this, but maybe someone else will be thinking the same thing and check the thread out...

for the price this game goes for new I'd just buy it....I think you could play this without playing the first, they do an AWESOME introduction recapping the first game at the beginning, but I think the experience would be better playing the first.
