Wizard's Edition is processing , it launches on Friday in Europe but I'm hoping they'll let mine slip a little earlier. So many positive reviews for this game.

Only played for 2 hours so far, but this is by far the best intro to a game I've played. I don't even know why - it's not something that hasn't been done before and it overexplains everything. But it's so perfect too.
Ah I'm in love!

I can't beat that thing in the mechanic shop. I swear this is the most difficult "easy" setting I've ever played in a while. I want to experience the story, not get frustrated with boss figures.

So I'm 12 hours in and getting rather annoyed with the game. The party AI is beyond useless, all they do is either a)use up ALL their MP or b) switch away from their familars and attack themselves (ie. Oliver running up and whacking with his wand. The only real option I have is to set tactics "Don't use abilities", though they makes them basically useless. It's infuriating.

All the quests in towns involve mashing the x button, running over to a green dot in the town, mashing the x button to take their "heart" then running back and giving it to the quest giver.

And the game started off with so much audio dialogue which has now turned to next to none.

Still okay, but yeah... the shine wore off pretty quickly.

I have spent over 3 hours trying to capture a certain familiar to no avail. I have all the stuff to supposedly make capturing easier.... this is annoying. I need it captured for an errand.

I love this game so badly. Haven't had much time to play it, only around 7 hours in. Just past the volcano section (apart of the demo), and I've been savouring all the dialogue and side quests. :P

What have people decided to capture as their main team?

I kept the mitey (I can't ever let go of original ones!), and also used my Amazon golden gryphon (he caps out at level 29 but is still fierce even when I got into the 50's), and a little spikey devil guy that I rarely used.

Edit: Man... after you beat the game there's a ton of stuff to do still.

I hid under my bedsheets crying "Nightmares aren't real! Nightmares aren't real!"

Honestly I can't recall. It seems a long time ago. I do recall that was one of the first guys to kick my butt a few times. You may try going and doing some other random fights first to level up a bit. If you can't do that, just try counter attacking him as much as possible. Sometimes the best strategy is to be ready to hit him when he's about to attack. That can prevent him from attacking.

I already finished the game and was playing on easy from the start. I never said I was good at the game.
