The demo really didn't wow me -- it felt like such a middle point of the game, just throwing players in -- but I'm still kinda excited for this. I wish more RPGs were shorter, though.

Agree on the hours. I just don't have that much time to sink into one game these days. Game does sound great, though...

I don't have enough time either. It's a shame this is releasing so close to Lightning Returns.

You should definitely play this, instead of XIII-3...

The demo pulled all the right strings for me: an art style that reminded me A LOT of FF Tactics, combat that felt genuinely fresh, a cool hybrid of 2D/3D in the towns... But yeah, I'm gonna have to wait. I'm already playing a few RPGs now, and there's no way I can throw in another one =p

"But make no mistake: This is a Final Fantasy game."

Oh, in that case, thanks for saving me the time. No longer interested. ;)

Lol Give them classic gameplay, they're hating...Give them new gameplay, they're hating...And people wonder where SE wants to bring the series.

I loved the demo, but it helped that I looked up the combo system online to figure it out. The demo doesn't do you any favors. The combat is really satisfying.
