Once again, this will contain spoilers.
I have started playing through the Fade. Of the five areas that need to be cleared out, I have completed two. I now have the mouse form and the burning man form. I am really enjoying running around as a mouse or on fire, and I’m excited to see what the other forms are. However, the fights have been almost disappointingly easy so far. I’m guessing I won’t feel that way when I get to the final battle though!
I also miss my companions! Hearing them banter with each other was one of my favorite parts of the rest of the game. It’s motivation for me to get through this part of the game, even though I’ll miss being a mouse. Right now, I miss my teammates more.
