I've had this game on preorder on Amazon since last summer, and now it's less than four weeks away. Also, I started replaying this a week before they revealed the project over 2 years ago. I put it on hold then thinking there was no way it would take this long to make. So to say the anticipation is killing me wouldn't be too far from the truth.

I do have a question for those of you that have already played the International Version: Does the expert sphere grid have the same nodes as the regular sphere grid but in a different order, or does it make it harder overall to develop the characters to ridiculous lengths?

Bravely Default:

Just about to start Chapter 3 and I'm sort of nervous since a lot of folks on here talked about almost missing various side quests in this chapter, so I'm going to be extra careful. Kind of sad to be leaving Florem, as that has been my favorite music in the game so far. I'm not a fan of the town's  themselves though, they feel more like small set pieces rather than towns. Nice to look at, but not very interesting. I will also say that the difference just two or three levels makes in this game is astounding.

Lightning Returns:

Finished Day 3 and the Yusnaan main quest. It's going to take a lot for any of the other main quests to top that one. The music during the "performance" was amazing, as was the music that played after the main boss.
Code:
That and I finally found Snow to be a likeable character.
I was starting to worry that I wouldn't be able to get into this game, but it's really growing on me fast, and could very well become my favorite entry into the series. I opted not to use the guide, so I'm also proud that my progress is going so smoothly.

Anyone else feel like the combat system is acting as a stealthy link between that of XIII/XIII-2 and XV?

Really, on a lot of games (especially Dark Souls) the only "skill" needed to overcome video game challenges is patience and/or trial and error.

I completely agree, I'd rather not have a games industry where as long as your name has enough recognition you can get away with the most heinous acts and still PR your way to looking like the good guy.

Create a manufactured controversy with aforementioned borrowed assets, for a start.

Over 1,000 posts! Guess I kind of like it here.

Tiz isn't the main character, Edea is. Seriously, every single Asterisk subquest is another line to her narrative and sometimes also adds to one other character's story.

Now that I've actually managed to defeat the first major boss of Lightning Returns, there's a major relief on the difficulty level of the game. Everything finally opens up and there's more freedom to explore different areas and quests. Spending Day 3 mostly in Yusnaan, and really loving the atmosphere there. And as others have said, the tension the clock causes diminishes pretty quickly when you start to realize just how much time there actually is.

Right now I find grinding for money is a lot easier than grinding for exp/jp, so when I didn't feel like messing around with the Valkyrie, I just spammed Takeover until she died. It did feel a little cheap, but then it's not like I wasn't using a tool I had been given.

I'm playing on Normal, and I do intend to max everything eventually, but to do so in 10 days requires some serious time commitments, I don't even think I could play my 3DS that much in one day without wanting to chop my hand off. The original models aren't exactly comfortable.

All jobs mastered on all characters, all 99. Chapter 6 still...

I wish I had that kind of dedication. I'm still struggling through the end of Chapter 2...

I really like Lumina's VA. I know she has that obnoxious valley girl inflection, but she totally commits to it and her delivery is spot on.

I didn't mind how they linked the stories of XIII and XIII-2. It was basically like two separate seasons of a TV series. Each game presents it's own plot, but together they reveal a much larger plot that links the "incidents" of each game together.

Ugh. Between Bravely Default and Lightning Returns, I really need to find a game to add to my rotation that won't completely stress me out. It's terrible too, because I was really looking forward to both these games and while I'm enjoying them both the nature of the games and the general difficulty is just giving me a massive headache.

I'm either really bad at this game, or the official guide is pants-on-head retarded. The thing suggests the first thing you do on Day 2 is take on the Chocobo Eater in mission 3-1. I neglected to do this, and instead collected the numbers I needed (except The Warren, nothing like telling you to collect the numbers before dark, and then making that literally impossible) Did a few other side quests in Luxerion for stats, then decided to explore the Wildlands. I've tried that damn Chocobo Eater multiple times and have yet to succeed.

It's hilarious, because the guide refers you to the battle strategies in the bestiary, which mention 3 or 4 abilities that you wouldn't actually have if you followed the guide. Stupidest guide ever.

UPDATE: Apparently I'm still adjusting to this new battle system, as I was finally able to beat that Chocobo Eater without doing anything new (I could have done other stuff, I just figured I was there and I'd give it one more try.

The problem with the battle system is it's very deceptive. It's presented in a similar style as the faster-paced battles of the XIII and XIII-2, but the battles here require a lot more patience and precision than the previous games. I love the challenge now that I understand it's nature a bit more, though I still think HP management is a pain in the arse.
