Although if the retailers are smart enough to band together and insist on a certain price then it won't make a difference.

yikes, isn't that illegal over in Europe? because price-fixing like that is definitely illegal here in the US...

finally beat it this morning... man those were some twists! had managed to finger who Sissel was by the end of chapter 15, and it felt great to be right, hahaha -- explained quite a bit about a couple things that had happened throughout the game. my only problem is that there's not more to it... i want more! i would love to have some kind of sequel to this, but they wrapped up the story so tightly idk if that would even be possible. i want another game that plays this way, i really do. they did an excellent job with the puzzles, i didn't need to cheat to get through them but they'll definitely make you think.

it helps that i love twisted stories like this, though, definitely :3 so much fun~!

so long as your warranty is still good, it should cover disc drive issues. just call Nintendo's support line and get a repair order set up, they'll take care of you. :3

oh absolutely, hahaha. talk to everyone you encounter; sometimes the most random person or conversation can put you back on the right path. if you get too lost, though, there's always GameFAQs :3

I just had to take down the URL to y'all's Google document and i set access to Private because it had been vandalized for srs. Y'all may want to consider locking it to where only users who are actively working on the project may access it as opposed to leaving it open for anyone and/or everyone to get to so long as they have the URL. :/

more like 'Have We Lost Kraden Yet?'... that old guy is so irritating once you find him. i kept wanting someone to punch him in the face and leave him on some deserted island so my party could go on and have an adventure without him tagging along explaining everything :/

@Nightwalker: don't worry, they'll beat you over the head repeatedly with everything that's ever happened in the history of Weyard, so you won't have missed much. there's also the helpful Encyclopedia entries you can pick up in every conversation that'll help to give backstory to unfamiliar terminology. :3

@Nightwalker: it's very different from most other FF games in terms of the battle system... you don't get to choose which enemy/ies you attack, nor do you get to choose which allies you buff or heal. you just pick your move and the CPU does a pretty decent job of hitting the ones that need hitting with whatever you're using, it's great in terms of forcing you to choose your strategy carefully -- even a random battle can wipe you out if you're not paying attention. the story is amusing, but somewhat lighthearted... it's just not as deep and heavy as other Final Fantasy games, which is a good thing IMO.

if you're looking for another solid FF title for DS in the same vein as III, though, try FFIV instead. it's a damn good game in its own right, remade straight from the original SNES title.

I'm up into Chapter 8 so far. I kinda get what some of the critics are saying regarding the lack of genuine 'Eureka!' moments in this game, but then i've still got a ways to go in terms of figuring out everything that's going on. there might be something mind-blowing coming down the pipe for all i know. The gameplay is pretty ingenious, it's the trial-and-error that makes things interesting, and there are actually times where it's better to take the obviously wrong path in order to learn more about what's going on at a given point in time.

in some ways it's much more laid-back than the PW series, and in others -- obviously the timed aspect of the lifesaving puzzle sequences -- it isn't. the fact that you can keep rewinding time as much as you need to in order to get through a puzzle helps, though. i'm greatly enjoying the familiar feel of the conversations, the style of dialogue and such (internal thoughts being paranthetical and in blue, important words in orange, brief flashes before revelations or quick 'aha' moments, etc. and so forth), and there is definitely that same feel to the humor behind everything. Missile is the best, and I love love love those two security guards, lol... waiting for a stepladder reference someplace >:3

i have gotten a bit stuck in a couple places, but those were due to following dead ends or timing errors in puzzles that needed to be completed in exact sequence. the game will help you out by telling you when you've made a mistake you can't recover from so that you can go back to the beginning of the puzzle or, if you've altered the death scenario significantly, to one of the 'Fate Changed' checkpoints. the checkpoints do help to cut down the tediousness of restarting a puzzle over and over. haven't had to resort to using a guide yet, and for me that's a very good thing. :3

for now, i'm in love with this game. that may change the farther i get into it, who knows, but so far it's a breath of fresh air coming from a familiar place (because it's so similar to PW for me), if that makes any sense. i apologize, but i'm having a hard time describing it without referring to Phoenix Wright, which is bad for people who have no experience with that series... but my brain just keeps seeing similarities, hahaha.
