It's cheaper on Amazon.

Oh even better :applause: when I last checked Amazon this past Sunday it was $41. For free shipping though you'll spend a little more there.

But by then you may not get the DLC, so there's really no benefit to you waiting.



Is the Griffy DLC that good? Again, considering that I'd probably not sell it, so it's something like DLC or wait for it to drop $10 - $15 more than now?

But if you wait, you maybe can get it for $25-30 but amazon probably won't be offering Griffey then. Or buy it now for $50, sell the content for $20-25 and you get the game now for that price.

you could always order a copy and then refuse delivery/return to sender when UPS or USPS delivers it

then you'd have Griffy and get refunded the $50

If you don't mind telling, where are you located? I'm in Central Michigan and I ordered on the morning of the 19th and nothing yet. Should be getting it from Gamefly tomorrow at least to get started on it.

I caved and grabbed a copy while the DLC is still available. This game wasn't even on my radar, but it looks damn good.

I've owned the game since launch, and while I enjoy it for the most part, it has some serious flaws. First off, if it hasn't been mentioned, the AI on your party members is a special kind of atrocious. You can give them a basic strategy like keep me healed or go all out, but even then, they're little more than cannon fodder.

Second, there are some insane difficulty spikes in the game. You can get to points where you can completely decimate everything in the area you're in, but then you step into the next area and you're dead before you know what happened. It got to the point where I just grinded on some high exp enemies for a couple of hours.

Third, the mechanics of how you raise your familiars is way wonky. When you evolve a familiar, they go back to level 1 in their new form. Also, if you capture the second form of a familiar and raise him alongside one who was raised from the original form and had his level maxed before evolving, the difference in stats is astronomical, making taming these forms utterly useless.

Speaking of levels, familiars don't share a common max level. Some can go to 58, others max at 20. Without a guide, you're lost.

Lastly, the game is too linear. You have very specific a, b, c progression. The sidequests are too short to be considered content, with one real exception that you'll recognize as soon as you get far enough to get it.

If I had it to do over again, this is a game I would buy, but not for more than 30 bucks.

Yeah this shipping delay is making me re-think cancelling the game - at after resale of the DLC cost of about $30 it'll be on the backburner for a while anyways!

While the AI is absolute shit, I never had extreme difficulty spikes. Yeah some places were tougher than others but I never really felt like the game forced hours of grinding on me.

The quests can be hit or miss, but then again this is a JRPG which most of the ones I played have a very linear nature and really not a deep quest line. If I wanted a free and open RPG experience I would play Skyrim.

Personally I think the game is fantastic besides the obvious AI issue. The level cap for familiars is a bit odd, but it's unique. Is defiantly a contender for my GOTY.

i'm still debating on the game... but just wanted to add that if anyone adds the 23.99 hardcover guide and 49.99 game to your cart, it will reduce the game by $2.00 to $47.99? (worked for me earlier and i'm about to test it again, does anyone know why this is?) It says "Best Value Savings $-2.50"

AZ just got a warehouse in PHX i believe, so now we get tax'd... so it pushes it 70 and change.. can't pull the trigger since my backlog is so long and i'm moving... decisions, decisions...
