I'm trying to procure the Collector's Set (in it's extreme) or the game guide that's coming out.  The collector's *technically* has the first art book featuring Akihiko Yoshida's work (the guide probably being the second best source for that...hopefully).

I can't believe Squeenix wants to leave this to fans demanding it on social networks.... I pray if the game does well in Japan they'll look at this game as an overseas candidate (which I think is good so far, Amazon [jp] is sold out).

The soundtrack is brilliant as well.  I'm surprised it took a Sound Horizon composer and not Hitoshi Sakimoto, but this isn't too bad a change, it's got a very fresh sound to it.

You're My Hope is completely awesome. I will have a review with samples up ASAP, because I must talk about this music at length.

I really love all 4 of Character Battle themes so it's hard for me to choose one over the other.

Street date broken, about 3 hours of recorded footage here. The video goes on till the end of the prologue, spoilers of course.

EDIT: Seems that Dengeki has a bit of an early review up. According to Japanese speakers, the reviewer has played through the entire game to end. Apparently the impression was very pretty well written, but candid and very positive toward the game. One of the things noted is that BD is about 40hrs long (for the main game), but probably longer since the reviewer stated that he had to rush through it.

The thing that I couldn't help but note during that video was just how many lengthy party chats crop up over pretty much everything. The other thing I couldn't help but note during that video was just how much voiced dialogue there is. The other other thing I couldn't help but note during that video was that if recent history is anything to go by we're not getting any of the above without somebody awesome like NoE or XSeeD stepping up to the plate and doing all the heavy localizing.

The other other OTHER thing I couldn't help but note during that video was that the guy playing does not know how a monk works (stop giving him spears and murdering his attack power you n00bish greenhorn).
In my vision, I see that one of us is going to KO the other.

The soundtrack is too good. Beautiful stuff. ;_;

"That Person's Name Is" is pretty damn awesome, kinda reminds of Ys.

And here's something I wouldn't mind getting left in Japan.

It's like it's both worse and better. You actually get rewards for your achievements! Except you're doing social media bullshit that I can't even fathom why they consider worth the effort. Well, Facebook advertising I guess, but posting on their forums?

Didn't XIII-2 had (has?) a thing with Facabook too? I remember seeing the icon while I was playing... or something in the option menu.

Lots of games have had some sort of Facebook integration, usually of the form of spamming people with stuff you've done in the game.  I don't know about XIII-2 since I didn't play it.

But having achievements tied to Facebook...ew.  Makes me feel dirty just thinking about it.

A bit weird seeing an unboxing video were someone actually shows the entire artbook, you don't see that often. Really liked the sketch at 4:20 with all the main characters together.

What does the Vampire class do by the way?

Sparkles and can inflict the "angst" status effect.

Alternatively, teleport around a shoot fireballs from a cape.

Unless they're high powered Chaotic units that park themselves in their coffins during the day regardless of where they are or what they may have been doing at the time. Also they're surprisingly good on your reputation meter if you only use them to liberate towns of low alignment and for the occasional unit stomping since they get a lot of mileage out of their levels.

Don't bother, the class sucks.
