    This is officially worse than Card Master from VII.

    It was the same for me. Played AU three-almost-four years ago and got every trophy except Lily Lord. I went back to it yesterday and just now finished.

    With all the appropriate "Cheats" activated (namely 1 Hit Kills), go to Volcanic Liquid under Dynamite de Volcano (the very first listed Story area) and kill the four bosses that spawn on top of you. This is the fastest possible way, trust me, I tried the other two fast ways.

    From the Steam guide:

    It's slow, yeah. A lot of the peeps that used to be here aren't here, and then others aren't very active anymore. (I never was to begin with.) The next Neptunia won't release for a while still, so there's nothing to talk about on top of that.

    I'll be getting VIIR soon, so that's... something? Probably won't be a lot to mention, same story and all.

    Recently Platinum'ed VIIR, so I have some things to say.

    - DLC characters from VII are not included and are not sold. In other words, they were removed. (RIP Million)
    - DLC costumes from VII were integrated into the game as normal items.
    - New Game+ was removed. (WWWHHHYYY?)
    - Enemies seem to be more difficult by default, but the overall difficulty is lower due to having more opportunities to buff your stats.
    - The combat system itself is slower on paper but only ever so slightly so once you know what you're doing. Which doesn't take long to adjust to.
    - The VR stuff honestly isn't cringy or awkward (mostly) at all. Also controls totally fine with the stick, albeit slow.
    - Blanc is super cute in the VR stuff.
    - The VR/out-of-game stuff treats you as if you've already seen VII all the way through, true end and all. Doesn't seem to spoil almost anything, though.
    - All equips have ranks, and semi-random stats. I'm not the hugest fan of the random stats thing, but the ranks allow old stuff to get better with time if you get a higher rank version.
    - All equips have stats. Even costumes and accessories. (not a fan of this)
    - You can only have one save file, but you do have multiple slots for playthroughs. Still a dumb idea, but it's not as bad, I guess. (unlike 4GO with only one save period)
    - Framerate is noticeable at first. It's perfectly stable, but you can definitely feel it since it dropped to 30 from VII's 60.
    - Neplunker and Neplunker Zero are harder due to halved framerate and input lag. Zero is even harder as it has a new layout.
    - All of the visuals you can think of were redone, though. This game is gorgeous now. And I don't mean just models/textures. UI/Interfaces and the like were also redone. I believe some of the portraits were touched as well.
    - New music tracks.
    - Challenges were changed, but not removed. They now award BP rather than specific rewards. (still wish they'd gut Challenges)
    - BP is awarded per level up. BP is used to allocate specific stats however you want, and can be changed without penalty.
    - Skills have prerequisites, and must be purchased with credits rather than awarded per level-up.
    - Most items still have pathetically low stack sizes (30 for Healing Grass), but some utility ones go to 9999. Like Eject Button and materials.
    - Inventory slots system starts at 399 with periodic upgrades available at shops up to a max of 999. There are also 9 Inventory DLCs that each grant 1000 (For a max of 9999). Stacked items count as 1, of course.
    - Absolutely 0 of the trophies involve VR in any way.
    - There are new cutscenes for some of the original voiced novel scenes.
    - You can replay events at any time. If they're in-engine, they'll be played with whatever visual gear the characters have equipped.
    - Items are sold from the inventory, but not to shops. (oddly)
    - All of the old staple nuisance trophies are gone. Card Master, Lily Lord, Millionep, etc.
    - Quests can be completed from the menu, but can no longer be repeated.
    - Scouts (and EnergyMates) work somewhat differently, and can be deployed/retrieved from the menu. You also don't need to leave a dungeon for the Hidden Treasure hint to appear.
    - Stealing appears to be much more likely to succeed.
    - Nothing unique seems to be missable. Steals tend to be rarities rather than uniques.
    - Scouts no longer need to be in the same dimension as you. That mechanic is discarded completely.
    - Heart Arc no longer asks if you want to go with CPUs or Candidates after the corrupted CPU fight. It instead plays out the Candidate route first.
    - True ending from VII is apparently the only ending now. (I've beaten it, but you can excuse me if I didn't want to risk having to play the entire game over again to find out if you can miss the requirements.)
    - Post-game is vastly changed, working on a Bounty and Rank system. Coliseum exists, but isn't very expansive.

    Over-all I think it's vastly better than VII, and it's what I wanted from VII in the first place. There are big complaints, though. Like the lack of Million, NG+, and save slots.
    It's coming to Steam this year, so the PC players here shouldn't have too much longer to wait if you're interested.

    Didn't know about the 4GO DLC, I'll have to look at that.

    Honestly, I have no idea why they keep porting assets as DLC to the Re;Births. While they weren't of much use when they were new, it was at least a bit more forgivable. But now... They've got Re;Birth+ coming up! Seems odd to be "updating" the "originals" (as if this series wasn't confusing enough, ha ha).

    Looking on PS4, there aren't any new DLCs for 4GO. Maybe they're just stuff the PS4 has had all this time?

    Just checked Steam's store page for 4GO, and can confirm that none of that new DLC is present on PS4. Odd. Not that I'm missing much, it's mainly just the Goddess robes for the CPUs, but still strange.

    Maybe they're gonna launch them later. I cant imagine that they'd do pc exclusive content.
