Voice acting bothered me for the first cutscene and where you input your name, otherwise it ain't that bad IMO. I've died a lot in this game, BUT I REFUSE CASUAL MODE! Until I get lazy and when I'm lazy I'm tempting.

Anybody knows if the Amazon cardboard box armor is any less suited to the early game?

It's cardboard what do you think will happen!?

Seriously though I'll check the stats when I get my hands on my copy.

Ok, it seems underwhelming relative to the GameStop one, just gives you +2 HP over the default and switches your weakness from Fire to Pierce. I guess somehow it's better to be set on fire rather than shot by a gun when wearing a coat made from shipping boxes.

Enjoying this a lot so far. Played for over 4 hours. The game looks great and I actually feel like having the 3D on is worth it. It's very polished and otherwise just feels really good. Press turn system is ace as always.

I'm putting my stats 3 Mag / 1 Agi / 1 Luk for the time being. As interesting as I'm sure the Physical route might be with the gear and the like, it's hard to really be able to decide against Magic, given how powerful it is in these games.

As far as progress goes, I beat the first boss.

What's everyone spent their App Points on so far? At level 10, I've got:
Code:
Skill Expansion 1 and 2, Mapper, Expand Stock 1, 2 and  3, Demon Skill +1, Scout and Demon Fusion. I've got HP and MP recovery unlocked, and would think that the latter is nice, but it's 40 points. Another Demon Skill slot for 30 would be good, too. And I guess that I should probably pick up Demolingual at some point. Priorities, ugh...

In other words, they both suck.

Glad I didn't preorder this game then.

Well, the game is still awesome, so it's not like something awful has happened to those of us who preordered and got the goofy-looking armor. If the preorder stuff was good, everyone would be complaining that it broke the game and OMG DLC IS EVIL.

I haven't even used the EB Games pre-order outfit yet. Anyone else in Canada use it?

I've had a .. very slow start to this game so far, but I wasn't feeling all that great either yesterday. Must be the heat. :P Plus, everything I've done was stuff I did in the E3 demo a month ago. Gotta say, I quite like Ali Hillis as Burroughs.

I died in the tutorial trying to recruit three demons. Good times. :D

I did too, Liz. I got two but the third just wasn't coming and I took an unlucky crit and died.

Wow. I'm not too worried that it will be picked up by somebody. Hell, it might even be better in the long run, though there's something to be said about Index' efforts to franchise the bejesus out of a select Atlus IPs.

If not, then I'll quit gaming.

Hopefully a 3rd party with a good track record of not messing with the creative process of its developers.
At destructoid there are a bunch of comments wanting it to be bought by Nintendo or Sony. Of the two I do prefer Sony for some reasons but in the end I truly hope it stays 3rd party. Maybe the folks at Tecmo/Koei could do well. Some people also mentioned Marvelous which I also think would be pretty good.

Not surprised. Hopefully Gungho or Marvelous will pick them up then (and I hope to god that Squeenix doesn't even touch them with a 39 and a half foot pole; those fuckers will bleed them dry and abandon their IPs after a single game).

Currently at Level 5 right now and I've put my App Points on
Code:
Skill Expansion 1 and Fundraise, in addition to Mapper and Scout.

As for stats, I've been building with heavy emphasis on Strength and Agility right now with less emphasis on Magic and an occasional point in Dexterity and Luck.

You said the same thing last time.

Personally I don't see that happening but, I don't know... if it happens I guess that the meltdowns will be fun to watch at least.

I wouldn't mind Marvelous, but I don't think they could afford it.  GungHo could, though.  They're sitting on a pile of cash from their ridiculously successful mobile game Puzzle and Dragons.
