Good deal then! I played the demo, but man...they didn't explain anything to you in that demo. I ran out of MP or whatever its called spamming dragon's swarm before I realized B could attack also. I won't start on this right away though, gonna finish up Digital Devil Saga then hop into it.

Edit: I lied. I'm around six hours in. Really enjoying it, except for insane difficulty spike at that boss from the demo. I said screw it and put it on easy to just kick his ass. Also I did it for the second fight with Zagi. How are you supposed to kill him otherwise?

Yeah, demo boss for some reason is one of the harder bosses in the game (excluding any optional bosses).  I don't recall having to do anything special for zagi.

I actually find that guy one of the hardest standard Tales bosses amongst all the games since it's reeeaally hard to grind for that fight (that hill is the best place for EXP but sucks even for that time), s/he comes with two wolf pups, and the Secret Objective is pretty hard to pull off.

This game is difficult. Barboss is a bitch. Seriously. Four damn tries. The only reason I lost is because of the damn cap on life bottles.

The thing with Zagi is to free run away from him and then attack after he missed you. If you get caught up in his combo, he does hurt a lot.

EDIT: well that or play wimpy and only attack with ranged attack like the good ole wind slash or whatnot.

the Secret Objective is pretty hard to pull off.

Not as bad as "shoot the heart"...

I winged that one... I was attacked and voila.
I had more of a dick time with the "Launch Zagi" one.

Beat Barbos, and beat Part 1. Only took me twelve hours. Is the length of this game greatly exaggerated or do I still have 60 hours left?

It's a 3 part game.
See how many sidequests you do, then you may/should hit that 60 hour mark.

I haven't found a single sidequest. I usually talk to everyone too. I best look up a sidequest guide.

You kill the wolf pups first. They actually do A LOT of damage over time. Do that and the fight goes MUCH smoother. Most people make the mistake of trying to down the big bad boss first, which ends with them getting picked off by the smaller enemies. Vesperia is one game where you actually require some tactics in order to effectively fight the bosses.

I'm currently playing the PS3 version, so I'm in the same boat.

It is because of that damn secret mission that I will never, ever attempt to 100% that game a second time.

I like the idea of secret missions but I do no have the attention span to try to get them. It was a miracle a finished Vesperia at all.

OK, we can stop panicking.  Both the CE and LE have the DLC costumes and the music CD is the same.  The only differences with the CE are the figure and art book.
