No copies for sale at my local lamestop, so I bought a 50 dollar nintendo card and am hoping I can get home and download it shortly. Fucking loved their reply to it too, they had 7 copies with 8 preorders held. Astounding logic, to have less copies than required for preorder customers and 0 for casual pick up. HOW THE HELL IS THIS FRANCHISE IN BUSINESS STILL?

I've had that happen so many times, that's why I now strictly pre-order through Amazon. Guaranteed game on release day and I don't even have to leave the house.
Except they won't buy my old crap back for it...and I need to use a credit/some form of bank card...all strong reasons I don't use amazon as much as I like.

TASTY!

Just curious if anyone else's CE from Amazon was bent to hell, or if I'm going to have to request Amazon not send through my local provider because they toss it around.

Amazon gives you credit for trade ins too. I've never actually done it, but they always give me the option. I just never trade in games. I hate getting 5 bucks for a 60 dollar game lol. I understand your reasons though.

Sounds like you guys just have some really bad branches by you or something, as I've only ever heard of that happen because of an associate accidentally selling a reserved copy, and I think that's only happened at our store once.

This game starts out pretty tough. I just emptied most of my inventory taking down the Black Mage.

Yeah, Gamestop tends to be a crapshoot more often than not. I've had my share of preorders and preorder bonuses disappear without a trace. Sometimes you can go shop hopping in hopes of finding the missing pieces if you ask the associate to call up and ask around but I wouldn't count on that either.

That said, this time went without incident and now I have my own swank CE BD FF. Right now I've just unlocked the village growth mechanic. Also I had to change the voices over to Japanese since Tiz shares the same VA as SAO's Keito and the reminder of the hot garbage that is SAO s2 is a bit too much.
In my vision, I see that one of us is going to KO the other.

So I am currently torn on my thoughts about this game (still very early in the game). I see where this plot is going and I love this sort of story or at least one aspect.....on the other hand the dialogue has been not very impressive. I honestly don't like any of the characters at the moment. I guess I can hope that I come to like the characters? Semi-related, Ringabel needs to be burned alive for that horror of a haircut.

Just curious if anyone else's CE from Amazon was bent to hell, or if I'm going to have to request Amazon not send through my local provider because they toss it around.
Mine was bent to hell as well. Well maybe not bent, but it was clearly beaten up. The problem is that they used bubblewrap envelope when the box wasn't sturdy enough to have stuff stacked on it.....which they apparently do with those envelopes so yeah. >.>

A tip to those interested in buying this game. You probably don't want to get this second hand if you don't want the plot spoiled on you. The opening changes after a while.


Keep any Japanese Mammon encounters that appear in your village. She is a level 25 boss. There are two versions of her. One that lets you steal Ethers and one that lets you steal Elixers. Her Elixers can be sold for about 20,000. Really helpful late game. Just steal from her and run away. If you kill her she is gone for good. Protect her so she does not get overwritten by a new boss.

I'm actually surprised the site's review was so mediocre. I think it's a fantastic game, I like the characters enough (Edea is actually my favorite, she has a temper but the writers didn't just lazily make her a cliche tsundere) the combat is fantastic of course and the music and visuals bring everything together.

Well, there are two. Mine from a couple of months ago: http://www.rpgfan.com/reviews/Bravely_Default_Flying_Fairy/index.html

And Kyles on the front page.

Once you beat the game you might find yourself more sympathetic with Kyles review, so I would withhold judgement until you get to that part. Or you might be like me and forgive its faults.

All imports agree for the most part.  That it's "very good" but marred by a terrible, terrible final stretch (I know what it is, and it DOES sound awful...).  I think it's fair to have both kinds of reviews, one that didn't dislike it as much, and a harsher critique (who still have it a 75; perhaps the title can "take" the criticism).
