anyone play this game yet? i'm on the fence about whether or not i should get it.


January 23, 2013 @ 20:58:53
i want this cos of the look but i've never played an rpg other than pokemon so the gameplay in the demo was completely alien to me. is there like a tutorial in the main game?
January 24, 2013 @ 05:29:44
When is this gonna come out? need to see more reviews/gameplay first..
January 24, 2013 @ 06:29:47
I got it just because of the ratings and of course, Studio Ghibli 

Can't wait to play it

 bought it but havent played yet. i know its good though played the demo and seen the reviews.
January 27, 2013 @ 17:39:24
only played about an hour of it but the 1st hour was excruciatingly slow and boring. that fucking fairy that follows him around is annoying as fuck too. i hear its suppose to get a lot better soon though

To those that have bought it, please give a report after 5 hours of play. I'm on the fence about buying it. It looks great, but the past few games I've bought at full-price, I've regretted the purchase after a few hours of play.

EDIT! Buy it, it's good.

i'm only 3.5 hours into it but i'm not feeling it that much. like i said, 1st hour+ is insanely slow. it opens up a bit later, but this shit is too childish for me. hasn't really been that challenging either


February 05, 2013 @ 21:33:02
really good game

Clocked in around 24-25 hours, easily the best game thus far of 2013 for me. 
Maybe it's from my bias stand point, but it's extremely good, I have no idea what Iggle is talking about with it being slow and excruciating...
As for challenging, you only played for "1hour+" which leads me to believe you didn't get far, the game gets very challenging. Unless you grind your ass and understand the weaknesses well, fights get very tough, fast.

If you enjoy studio ghibli, you will definitely enjoy the story of this game.
It does get a little repetitive with errands and parts of the story, but it's still very fun. 
PSA for those who have this game, cycle your bar in battle with L2 & R2 instead of the D-pad, did not know this until probably a day or two ago. Makes your play time so much easier and smooth, instead of trying to juggle running around and cycling to do magic or use items.

I find the boss battles to be easier that some of the basic fights, bounties being the hardest battles. Although, I end up using a shit tonne of MP boosts because I find Oliver's magic to be the best weapon due to its range.

I've also found that it's a bad idea to evolve a familiar during a quest. All stats drop when you evolve and revert to Lv. 1, EXP gains level the familiars pretty quickly, so if you evolve at the beginning of a quest, or after completing one, the familiar will be tough enough by the time they're needed.

I've only clocked in ~10hrs, with probably closer to 7hrs of play, because I think the clock keeps counting when paused. Just got to the first cauldron/genie, got my ass handed to me and just haven't played since.

yeah i just got the ship and met Mr. Drippy's mom. i havent really been playing but i agree the boss battles are easier than some of the basic fights its weird that its like that.

Got about 47 hours in and just beat Shaddar... Did hella grinding as well as every errand/bounty hunt cause the bosses do get harder at a certain point and so do the normal encounters. As far as evolving goes... evolve them when it says they can't level up anymore you'll start off with better stats when it resets. Alchemy gets heavily involved later in the game too if you want good equipment...
February 19, 2013 @ 00:21:59
And use Swaines mugshot on bosses cause they usually have some rare items that you can fairly early in the game...
February 19, 2013 @ 02:44:54
last i played was when i got the ship. haven't touched it for like 2 weeks. it just doesn't have me hooked or anything.

Yeah it gets better after the Fairy Island... when you can go on your own and explore other islands it gets a lot better...

I agree, but for me getting the dragon is the best part of the game haha

Buy it, it's a dope game. Especially if you're into anime/JRPG stuff.
Also Studio Ghilbi FTW.

I've only clocked in a few hours due to finals, but bouts to play a lot more during Spring Break.
