Okay, yeah I enjoyed Im@s2, but there are parts of it that just kinda... I dunno.
I mean, how many new songs did we get? Like... four? Maybe five or six if you hopped on the PS3 wagon? Something's gotta be done about this - even Im@s SP, a remake, got an extra song per idol and a new production song. Is it really too much to ask a full blown sequel to get the same?
The narrative could've also been a little deeper and not as formulaic, I think... and despite thinking about it, I've never been able to find any technical justification for why they excluded four idols from the main game. I mean, the only reason I can think of is that it didn't fit the plotline 'cause they wanted someone to fall... in which case I have to suggest to them: CHANGE THE PLOTLINE. Bonus points if they do that for each character.
... Either way, whatever comes next, comes next. Namco can hit me with an entirely new cast for Im@s3 and I'd be fine with it. Or, at least I think I will.
