For the people who have played this game so far: My mom can be slightly paranoid about games, so is there a large amount of objectionable content? FE: Awakening is a good reference point. And secondly, is there a large amount of weird japanese religious stuff, or is that considerably less than the average jrog?

I will say this once: Your mom needs to grow up a bit. ;)

The reason I say that, "weird japanese religious stuff" is pretty racist. All religions are weird, because mythology is not based on reality, it's fantasy. As for "objectionable," well, everything in games is objectionable, because what offends someone is inherently subjective. The game has a clear line between "good" and "evil," and the player characters are on the side of "good."

As for nudity, if you find that sort of content objectionable, there is almost none. The outfits most characters have cover almost everything. There are no bouncing boobs or crotch bulges, and no sexual content. Actually, the outfits for the player characters are really awesome, very artistic and beautifully crated.

Monsters are clearly monsters, their intent is to destroy. There are no references to drug use, that I had seen, and the closest to criminal activity for the player is the name of the classes they used, like thief or assassin.

Honestly, if you can find something to be offended by in the game, you're looking too hard. ;)

The line between good and evil is actually kind of weird IMO becuase of some mid-story elements, if you played to chapter 5 you know what I mean

Well, the point I was making is that the players are on the side of "good," because, let's face it, "good" and "evil" are completely subjective anyway. ;) What I meant is that, unlike GTA, it's clear that the player characters are intended to be the force of "good" not "evil" in the game. They are trying to make things "right," basically, and not trying to destroy the world or some other commonly agreed on "evil" act.

Sorry, I didn't mean to cause a fight. I guess I misstated my question. The weird religious thing was not meant to be offensive, I just meant anything offending to a Christian, like quite a few JRPGs have. A good example is the majority of Atlus's Persona games and the shin megami tensei series. And, yes, my mom is not paranoid (guess I was a little bit irritated at the time) but she is biased against games set in first person. She was more willing to let me play Uncharted 3 than Metroid prime trilogy. I personally don't like games where the main goal is shooting anything that gets in your way. I guess I should have checked back here sooner than now. Sorry for the misstatement and confusion.

There is no fight here, I am merely pointing out that all religious stuff offends someone, and yes, Christian stuff offends a lot of people too, considering that Christianity itself is one of the weirdest religions on the planet. Without completely derailing this thread, it's best not to call any mythology "weird" unless you want an atheist like me to step in and point out how "weird" your mythology is as well. Some of us atheists are hyper-sensitive to that sort of thing.

Anyhow, there are no definitive religious mythologies that I had seen in the game, only generic mythologies that are common to all cultures now. As for anything else that could be considered inappropriate to young players, I have seen none. Fantasy violence is the only aspect of the game that could be considered inappropriate for some young players, but that's so common now I wonder why they even include that in ratings now.

Should I give this type of game another chance...? Dunno why, but I couldn't stay into FF or DQ...
But watched an IGN review and...wanting to give it another go with this game.

I love Erica (Strike Witches), Eureka (Eureka Seven), and Tenma (School Rumble), stay away from them. xD
Update: Also love Yukari and Mizore from Rosario + Vampire.

Try the demo, if you can complete the town and still have fun with the battles after defeating all the bosses .... then I would recommend buying it.

I keep forgetting about the demo...lol.
Anyone who has the game (Japanese obviously, lol) how are the battles compared to the other games. I think one thing I couldn't stay into FF were that the enemies/bosses kinda bored me. They seemed to use the same attack over again.

Well, the demo bosses do have variety, and the coding makes them appear to even be AI driven. The random encounters are a bit less varied, but still have some using brave and default to gain strategic advantages, not just blind luck. I really got bored with the turn based combat systems myself, FFXII was awesome for me because it used the ATB system instead, but with Bravely Default the turn based system is not as dull. As I said, try the demo to be certain, but I think it's a fresh new game.

I'm about 30 hours in and I can say every single normal enemy so far has had a couple of skills that they use in addition to normal attacks. Rushing in with normal attacks is not an optimal strategy until your level is well above the recommended one for the area, which gives the best of both worlds since encounters are initially challenging but become friendly for grinding too.

Also, the game bosses are so much better than the demo bosses. They've all got complex patterns and distinct ways to beat them. If you lose a boss battle, reshuffling your class and equipment can often be a better course of action than leveling up your characters for a while. The only annoying thing is that you need to unlock all the classes and it can be a while before you get to the more interesting ones.

HOLY CRAP this game is hugh!! Over 26000 block??? If I knew that I would've went retail as I'm getting quite full. Now down to 40k left on a 32 gig. No more dl's for me retail anyways for a while.

I think that makes this the biggest game to date as well!

They laughed at me when I converted a 128gb SD to FAT32 for my 3DS, well who's laughing now!

That is a pretty gargantuan download though. Almost a solid 10,000 blocks over my next largest game (DKCR3D).

Initial thoughts: Bad English dub. Good thing it has dual audio.

And honestly, I think I would have preferred some audio compression if that's the cause of the huge filesize. I find loseless overrated to begin with, but when it's coming out of the small 3DS speaker, it's even more pointless.

I'll be picking up the collectors edition to........day, today, but sadly can't play it because I have to go to work, and work late, because that's my job, that I have.

Also that's alot of blocks, it's almost scary, and that's why I will always stick to retail.

Call in sick. /sagenod

Hey, people call in sick for lamer excuses. Anyhow, I didn't go with the collector's edition on account of moving soon, so I didn't want anymore stuff to pack. But I will be picking it up later today! Woohoo!

My impressions so far.

First this game is absolutly gorgeous! Wonderfully animated and beautiful locations! I really like all the options available to you and how the game gives you kind of an achievement for completing missions to help learn the games options! Lots of options really make this game feel fresh on an old take! Its hand holding at its finest but optional.

I really think the encounter rate on normal is far to low. If I can run from one area to another and a good distance as well and not battle then its to low.

That's all I have for now except this could very well become my favorite 3ds game to date! Old school meets new in a Epic tale!
