Well, it is censorship, and pretty unnecessary censorship at that, given the game's rating.  I'm not sure why they bothered.  You can walk down the street in summer and see people dressed in less.

On the other hand, it's not nearly as bad as something like what they did to Xenosaga 1 (where the attempted censorship made a brutal scene even worse) or Xenosaga 3 (where censorship made one scene completely nonsensical).

Oh sure, I'm not saying it isn't censorship, I'm just not sure what the big deal is. It's such a minor thing that doesn't affect anything and, reading that FAQs topic, you'd think the world was ending.

"THIS IS EVIL CENSORSHIP! WE'RE NOT GOING TO BUY THE GAME BECAUSE ONE IRRELEVANT THING HAS BEEN CENSORED." I lol'd.

I went back to GameFAQs for the first time in years, having thought that was the actual title, and had renewed faith that maybe, just maybe, the community had gotten better (or at least became self-aware of their own stupidity).

Needless to say, my faith was crushed. =P

But really, The reasons for boycotting just keep getting dumber, to the point where I feel like there are just tons of people clamouring for a reason to not buy this game, despite all the hype and good word behind it, and I don't know why.

You talk as if anyone saying they'll boycott the game because of the censorship really will. That tickles my funny bone. Some people just like to make noise.

*Shrug* I guess I have a bad habit of assuming people actually do what they say they're gonna do. =/

Gee, people are seriously up in arms about a 5 second scene on a sprite that you can barely see.

How is the difficulty in the game? The demo wasn't that hard once you got some equipment but the boss fights were decent challenges.

Some battles can be rather challenging, even random ones, but status ailments do work on most bosses and do help greatly in general. I was happy with the difficulty throughout.

I've found a handful of bosses quite challenging, while others have been pushovers; it makes a big difference sometimes as to which jobs you have been levelling/have access to. Random encounters are easy to start with, but they get a big jump in difficulty about half-way through. I'd say the overall difficulty is just right.

That is great to hear. I was worried that it would be too easy. Thanks to the both of you. Guessing that abusing the village would break the game but it would kind of be your own fault if you do. Tempted to buy it now and play it over Christmas.


You know, because I can.

While the village wouldn't break the game outright (they actually sell a pretty limited amount of weapons and armour once you get a couple of chapters into the game), it could certainly give you a big advantage in certain situations. You still need enough money to buy them too, of course, which can be challenging early on.

What breaks the game most is the summon friends thing. With the right friends, you can OHKO early bosses and take them out within one turn later in the game. It feels very tacked on and is one o the few things I really don't like about the game. I have avoided summoning friends most of the time.

Just read the whole review through, and it was interesting. I tried to skim the third to last paragraph, but I couldn't and just had to read the whole thing...which is okay, it wasn't as spoilery as I thought. Thank you for the well-writen review, now I'm very excited for the game.

Funny, I was listening to Final Fantasy V music the whole time I was reading it. Final Fantasy V is one of my favorite RPGs. Perhaps that's a sign?
