Shelved games: Why I gave up on Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch

Today, I decided to cross Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch from my backlog list. I haven't finished it and I don't intend on ever doing so. Now, before the pitchforks and "try it again" comments come out, I should lay out my reasons as to why I'm permanently shelving the game.

Mobile Suit Gundam (MSG) has always been a fascinating property to me. Even though it was never shown in South Africa during its US and UK 80s/90s heydays, it was something I always caught whiffs of.

We've moved past the days of cartridges that you blow into, which have been replaced by flash memory, hard drives, and Blu-ray discs.
