So far the Neptunia franchise has been three mediocore RPGs and a passable IDOLM@STER parody—so my hopes weren't the highest going into its first strategy RPG. But let me tell you, there is a lot to love in Hyper Goddess Faith Noire: Ultra Goddess Black Heart—even with its impressively complicated name.
