Do you require aid.
Yeah the only story in Octopath 2 that's really unabashedly bad is Throné's. Everyone else has something to like about it.

So I started playing Pillars of Eternity 2 recently
That said, this surprises me:Potato Flowers in Full Bloom is really good. Just very charming in a way that trailers and screenshots don't really convey, and yet surprisingly mechanically dense. And very adeptly translated (it looked like the sort of Japanese dungeon crawler that often doesn't get a very good English translation). It also looks... bizarrely good despite its minimalist presentation. Nice lighting effects, and it does some fun stuff with the lighting.
Pretty much my only complaint is that it made me kill the cutest wolves that I've ever seen in a video game.
Anyway, it's on Steam for cheap and it's about the most fun I've had with a dungeon crawler in ages. It doesn't overstay its welcome, and is in and out in about 20 hours, and I enjoyed all 20 of those hours. A fun and novel take on a kind of ossified genre with some real fun ideas that I won't spoil here. Highly recommended.
Because I rolled up a party of 3 (it's been long enough that I don't recall the precise class names, but I think it was something adjacent to Warrior/Ranger/Mage) and never once swapped anyone out all game. Building a trio that can take on all comers was part of the appeal for me.it encourages you to keep cycling your party of three through your roster of eight.
(This game owns bones; loving every inscrutable minute.)-There's a pig who repairs gear for HP in Earth World, Rotting Cavern, just off the main shadow tower.
-I can swap between main and reserve weapons by hitting A, then Y. (My reserve weapon is currently a BOW)
-I can cast magic by hitting B, then Y, or off-hand magic by hitting B, then X.
-I can use my quick item slots by hitting B, then A, or swap between quick item slots by hitting B, waiting a beat, then hitting X or Y.
-I can cancel out of my quick item menu by hitting B again.
