    OMFG, I am so excited for this game. I can't wait to get mine, though Amazon won't ship mine until the 17th (Is that because I preordered the other day?). Anyway, I was wondering if anybody has Final Fantasy III DS in their grubby little hands yet, and if anyone's played it yet?

    OMG, I feel like a little kid again.

    I forgot all about this game til today when I was talking about the FF series to someone, and what do you know, it just came out today. I'm going to stop by EB Games after work today and see if they have any...surely this isn't popular enough to be completely preordered out?

    I actually am going to try FYE later as well. I called them a few minutes ago and they said they will either get them in today, or tomorrow. S**T, if I can't get it tonight, I might as well wait for my Amazon preorder to come in. ( Was going to cancel the order if I could get a copy today or tomorrow.)

    PS: I am typing REALLY fast right now, just to let you know. :D

    Which BestBuy around Boston? I'll go to the one out in Framingham/Natick if EB is a no go. Good to know BB has it though, thanks!

    Arrgh! I've called every single video game retailer within a 50 mile radius, and I keep getting the same answer: "tomorrow"

    I'm gonna go crazy! I have state testing tomorrow, and the last thing I need is to be thinking about a video game that I really want to get. :( What ever shall I do?

    I called 2 GameStops, 3 EB Games, 3 Best Buys, 2 FYEs, 1 Target, 1 Walmart, 1 CompUSA (bad idea, they had a horrible selection), and a Toys R Us.

    Oh, what really pissed me off was that one of the Best Buys that I called said that they had it, so I went down there (like a 30 minute drive) and they didn't have it. Grrr! Why whould they tell me they had it when they didn't. Oh well.

    Good luck with that. It's an awesome game by the way. I will not be having a life for a good while. I'm already stuck though. Shoulda' picked up a strategy guide. Oh well.

    Anyone want to exchange friend codes? Apparently we need to send mail back and forth to unlock a certain job.

    I played it on the train this morning. I bloody love it. Old skool difficulties but a lovely, fluid engine. Hell I would have bought it if it was 2D. Loving these FF remakes! The early games are so beautiful.

    You get your first jobs shortly after meeting everyone in your party. I don't want to spoil anything, because I don't know exactly where you are, but don't worry, the jobs aren't that far away.

    Thanks! I'm trying to get off walkthroughs so that I can enjoy the game more, being more like a real adventure... it's like an addiction, hehe. :p

    Be sure to post it here when you do get it. If we exchange mail it opens up the opportunity for some side-quests.

    Nah, just got my 4 people too. This game is beautiful. All I can say right now :) Loving the left and right hand equipment system, if this was in the NES original then bugger me! good Square.
