Just tried out the demo. Rap battle music right out the gate and Chocolina's personality nearly made me shut it off.

But I kept playing I think this is a title I'll probably pre-order if I can afford it; if not I'll at least pick it up later. The normal battle music is gorgeous, the battle system is fun (even if I hate the Pokemon element) and it's actually nice to see random battles return with a fresh coat of paint. The dialog trees and the different ways to tackle objectives are more than enough to convince me that this game has replay value. I'm sold.

The fact they threw in Chocolina baffles and annoys me. I know there'll always be some JRPG eccentricity, I wouldn't want them to actively avoid it, but for trying to make this more accessible the last thing we needed was turning the shop into an idiot cosplayer.

I didn't find her to be too much of a bother. She's a goof, to be sure, but you can basically just plow through her dialogue and shop.

i honestly think this might be a contender for (my at least) Game of the Year. From a gameplay standpoint its the JRPG ive been waiting this whole generation for. Noel's kind of douche though, but at least he's a cute douche unlike Vaan or Tidus.

It was Japan.

I liked the FFX shop dude, nice fella, thanked you "for your patronage" and all that.  He was swell and earnest.

Hey, 14 main titles and only NOW they have a person dressed up as a chocobo? Honestly, it could have been worse. At least she makes it work.

TASTY!

The man makes a point.  Just about every game has some ridiculous character, this one just had a voice.
FF6 Cid was dressed as a peanut for goodness sake. :P

I stopped playing when I saw Chocolina.

I don't understand why people are quitting the game after not really even getting into the meat of it. This is a seriously improved game and I feel like people are judging it because of a minor character that takes up all of 1% if your time in game.

Unless we're being facetious. In which case nevermind.
