The link for the beta app is directly underneath your code for the FF14 item.

You can go back to the Squeenix MEMBERS page, go to the FF13 section, and click Bonus Codes, it should still be there.


I have very few options on the Members site. Just Home which is a banner showing some S-E games, and Account which shows I have one game registered, which I can't click on. I can only edit my personal details or add another game.


Is the promotional code only for those in the US maybe?

The url they point you to makes me think North America, but who knows.

http://member.square...f13/serialcode/

That's the bonus codes page; maybe that will work. Should have a link at the bottom for both ps3/360 versions (depending what you've registered so far.)

This might be the cleanest looking game I have ever played. I've only missed getting 5-stars on 3 battles. 1 was understandable, but 2 were like 'what, really?'

Also, I think I know who the main character is, and I'm only an hour into it.

I love the game so far but I hate Hope so far. Hopefully he nuts up or shuts up.

When you register they give you a 20-digit code. That's for the beta. You get another code for an item whenever they feel like it.

I signed up for a beta chance. If I get into it, it will be a miracle of miracles.

That XIV BETA sign up is stupid... I have no option for saying NO I DON'T RUN ANY WEBSITE... so, according to the survey, I now do. But I don't... but I had to answer and they gave me no choice.

Well I had already applied for the beta when they were excepting closed applicants, so I made a new account. Now they made me merge my SE ID with the SE-Members one, so I"m pretty sure registering the code and using the beta "invite" isn't going to double my chances... so it's useless for me. Wheeeeee

I wasn't too thrilled to try XIII until I saw the video reviews, it looks fun to me.

I'm trying to fight it, but I don't think I can any longer. I'm going to have to pick this up. Luckily I've got a bunch of gs credit. Is the beginning more or less linear than ffx?

It's on rails, baby. Seriously though, it's more or less a straight line with a circle or short branching path here and there. At least that's how it's been for a few hours now.

^Wow, that's shitty man. I've always been worried about something like that happening.

How are people liking the game? I really want to pick this up, the last FF game I played (IX) I really enjoyed but I don't know. My interest in J-RPG's has really waned over the last 4-5 years. I've also heard that it's unnecessarily hard, but that was on GameFaqs, so I'm taking it with a grain of salt.

Oh and inb4 the "too linear" comment.

Amazon is gonna file a claim with UPS and they'll get paid, why should I be thankful they used that stupid packaging that can be opened from the sides. Anyone who has bought a game / blu-ray from Amazon knows how easy that package can be opened.

I just got the game today and have already played for just over 2 hours. Yes, its very linear, but definitely not a bad thing. In ways I do feel like I'm playing FFX again (not FFXII), which makes me feel very happy. Will put more time into this game mostly this weekend.

Anubis, that really sucks to hear (you don't even live that far from me either). :-( Glad you are getting another, but really sucks to hear.

And yeah, I DO agree about Amazon packaging at times.

They sent mine in a padded envelope.

A couple of things about the voice actors. Not really spoilers from the game, but if you want to figure it out on your own, go ahead. These are merely guesses, too. If they're not right, they sound an awful lot like them.

Spoiler


That's all I recognize.

Mine was a box as well, with the small "air bags" as padding.

Has anyone had trouble creating an account with SE? It said it would send me an email with a link to finish creating my account but I've gotten nothing and it's been like 2 hours.

EDIT - I just received it, how weird.

I'm sure they have been getting hammered all day. I did it earlier, it just went very slowly.

Did yours come from DE? Mine was just in a small box without padding (put seemed to be wrapped tightly). When it comes from VA, it comes in a bubble mailer. Some Amazon places it comes in a large with air cushions.

Anyway, played for another 30 minutes before bed time. I actually got a game over for doing something stupid in battle, but oh well. :lol:
