I downloaded the demo, cheerfully didn't really listen to anything and then wandered into a dungeon and almost died (I had to run away). I shall try and pay more attention on my next attempt.

So it's hard from the off, then? I'm not sure whether that's good or not. If I die in the first ten minutes, I'll likely turn off in frustration and not pick up again.

I had the same problem on the overworld, one of the NPCs in the town you start off in mentions that it's 'easier' to wonder westward first, but one enemy inflicted 200+ damage with one move, wiping out a party member. I ran for the hills.

Wow people weren't kidding about the enemies being rough. I took the first side quest I came across that was to have me killing those cat things for their pelts, so the battle starts all fine and everything. Then it starts using the wind spell and systematically one shots the entire party. Shocked  I'm going to guess the tactic for those things until I've got a few levels is to use that Bravely system to kill it quickly then tank the attacks from its fellow weak serpents, but still that was more brutal than I was expecting.

As long as you can select which enemies to hit (my 3DS SD card is too full to allow the demo, y'see), I'm happy. The lack of that simple ability was one of The 4 Heroes Of Light's worst features.

ONM review.  You can vary the frequency of random encounters, you say, including turning them down to zero?  Sign me up!

(Strangely, Chandra seems to like the voice acting.  He's confused me right there.)

I never found a problem with the voice acting myself in the trailers. After I pick up my PS4 & Mario tomorrow I'm going to see if I have enough left to get the collectors edition of this, even if the figure seems a bit ropey.

I'm now torn between this and the attack on titan game which are both out on the same day and if I am to pay off the PS4 anytime soon I can only get one

Obvious solution: get a PS4 later, when the good games start coming out. Razz

If it weren't for Etrian Odyssey IV I'd probably be picking this up at launch. I'd like to see more angles/reviews on it (not at all a criticism to ONM's reviews) before I decide though, as the demo didn't change my excitement for it...

...and I really want Band Bros. P.

Cancelled my preorder for the 80 quid limited edition from Shopto. This is another one to add to the ten quid or less list.

Nintendo Life's Review for Fronk

Conclusion

There’s much to be said in praise of Bravely Default, perhaps too much to fit into a single review. What must be relayed, however, is that Bravely Default stands as an absolute triumph of both game design and the reinvigoration of old concepts, claiming its rightful place as a giant in the JRPG genre that will surely be remembered as a classic in years to come. Any 3DS owner with even a fleeting interest in role-playing games and a desire to get lost in an incredible, engaging adventure would be doing themselves a huge favour by picking up Bravely Default without delay.

9/10

Also there's 4 reviews on Meta Critic (doesn't include NL but does include ONM) with a average of 92 that's 01 more then link between world's.

This game is clearly for me and I must have it as soon as possible. It looks to have everything I love in a JRPG. I think I will order a copy from the UK very soon.

Okay then, I downloaded the demo and gave it a try. It is remarkable. So remarkable that I have played 9 hours of it over two days. It is grinding heaven. Yes, I got my arse served to me early in the game, especially in the west cave (that last all of 10 seconds), but after a little grinding and some weapons/armour, I was all set. I have fully implemented 3 jobs for each of them and nearly finished a fourth. The Brave?Default battle system is excellent and it looks terrific, especially the 3D. The music is brilliant as well. This looks very much like being my favourite 3DS game yet. I certainly will be ordering it. I hope transferring my save of the demo works, after 9 hours of it Smile

Blimey, nine hours on a demo? I'm guessing this is gonna be a long game, then? I've plonked this on my Christmas list, showing great restraint, I think.

Blimey indeed. If someone said to me that I would play 9 hours of a game demo, I would have called them nuts. It is very limited in what you do; small map, couple of caves, one town, but what it does is just so awesome. I will be disappointed if I can't transfer the save file, but not gutted, as I just enjoyed what I did so much.

Did the demo. have voice acting? Did you turn it to Japanese straight away, or did you let the beautiful American voices massage your ears for a while first?

I don't recall any voice acting at all. Unless I am missing something.

A sequel is hopefully good news, but I'd like to play this one first!

Also I've sold on eBay FIFA 14 on PS4 and a few unplayed 3DS games sorry any mario & team bros fans.

I was going to put money towards a VITA but I forgot this was actually coming out Friday as I couldn't afford it but now I can I've bought the Collector's Edition of this over a VITA (going to get one after payday, more I want on it then a xbox one at the moment).

And let's have a launch trailer of Bravely Default which is out Friday.

Update Fronk and Kezz talked me out of getting the collector's edition as the figure seems like crap and over priced. So now waiting for a refund from ShopTo.
