Well now, the game is over and all the operations XS'd. I have to say that I was surprised at how easy it all was in this playthrough. Whereas on my first playthrough operations like Triti or extreme Paraskevi took me like 50 retries and many shot nerves to XS, I consistently managed it on my first or second try this time. Guess that's a testament to how well designed it is. It certainly seems more lenient than New Blood or Under the Knife 2, but it's also better. Though who knows. UTK2 was great. I just don't like the DS controls as much as the Wii.
Either way let me once again praise Second Opinion for being the best game the Wii might ever know. This game is the ONLY thing that keeps the wiimote from being the biggest waste of space ever created. And judging by how much Nintendo is sucking recently, it doesn't seem like this will change any time soon. But oh well. What can ya do. The console was worth getting for this game. I hope Atlus continues milking this franchise forever. They might not get it right every time, but I still have faith.
It seems there are low chances of Atlus porting UTK2 to the Wii though, which makes me sad. I mean sure, I wouldn't mind a new game, but a new game PLUS a port of UKT2 would be even better. Come on Atlus, it can't be that hard. According to an interview on 1up:
"And as far as the future of the series goes, I know there's an audience both on the Wii side and the DS side, but I also don't think we can just keep bringing ports back and forth like some companies do.
People were very understanding with Second Opinion because it was such, I think, an amazing proof of concept; it really worked on the Wii and showed the series could be just as fun on the Wii. A lot of people who bought the DS version also bought the Wii version. But as Yu says, going back and forth, I don't think that's what the fans want.
I think if we tried to double-dip too many times, fans would turn on the series."
Come the fuck on. That's the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard. I dare you to find one Trauma Center fan who would be against porting UTK2 to the Wii. I would buy it nine times even if it had absolutely NOTHING new. Stop disappointing me and port that shit already!
Anyway, it was fun replaying Second Opinion. I really needed to. Had to get it out of my system, know what I'm sayin'? What did I learn from this project? I learned that fuck me, writing a guide is so much harder than just playing a game. I'm amazed that I didn't give up halfway through considering how much of a lazy motherfucker I am. Probably the only reason I didn't was because I was being encouraged by friends along the way. But it was close man. It was fucking close. I think I started around the 5th, and now it's the 20th. That's 15 days of pretty much nonstop work. You know how much that is for someone as lazy as me? And the game isn't that complex. I gotta say I respect people who have the dedication to write guides for the really long and complicated games. It's not easy. Overall I think I like how this came out. Sure it's not perfect but gimme a break, I'm fucking exhausted man. Leave me alone.
Well I've rambled on for long enough. I guess I don't really have anything worthwhile to say other than congratulations if you've XS'd this game. You chose a damn fine game to master. I'm outta here.
