Are all EB/Gamestops having a midnight sale?  I get off work around that time and there's a couple in the general vicinity.
The one I preordered from is not.  I heard just about every store outside of a mall is having a sale . . . alas, the one I preordered from (I could probably run to another one but meh) is in a mall.

The most negative review I have seen yet eek  Thet really didn't like the game.  It sounds like they gave it an 8.0 just because it's Final Fantasy.  it seems you will either hate or love this game.  I hope I love it.

Mine is, although I'm not sure I'll stay awake long enough to get there.  Plus I don't really want to deal with the costume contest and other nonsense they're doing.  Will probably just pick it up when they open tomorrow.

Interesting review.  It's the first one I've seen that says a lot negative about the story.   While I'm concerned that I won't care for the battle system (the demo did nothing for me), the story and characters are not much of a concern.  We shall see.

I picked up the strategy guide.  I think I'll sleep with it under my pillow or maybe I'll hold it close and whisper to it tonight.
I'm still debating it. I really want to get the strat guide, but I always feel like console strat guides dont have enough info in them-is the regular guide for FF12 worth it? What do you think warning?


It's ginormous.  340+ pages and appears full of charts, graphs, boss strategies, and more goodness.  I don't want to read it too much for fear of taking away from the game but for $20 it looks like a lot of help for a humongous game.

SOLD!

Mine is as well, but I want to buy it from CC cause I am short on cash, and I dont really feel like buying it from EB tonight to play for 3 hours, then getting it from CC and returnign that to EB tomrorow. Just waaay too much trouble. I am super super stoked for this game, but it can wait until tomorrow afternoon.

I'm being extremely skeptical about FF12, simply because I let myself get caught up in the FF10 excitement and ended up losing interest in it half way through, and I wouldn't touch FFX-2 with a 10-foot pole. I'll wait a few weeks after release to decide whether I will play it or not based on everyone's impressions.

Jesus is this Collector's Edition case hot.  Sure whatevs, it's not necessarily "needed" or anything, but it's sexy as hell.  And I splurge at anything FF.

AND the collector's edition of the guide is omega huge too.  Love it.  Which cover did everyone get?  I got Balthier.  Woot!

There are multiple covers on the guide?  I didn't look too closely at mine (it's out in the car right now) but I think it has the Judges on it.

Right inside the flippy part there are apparently... five different covers?  I think?  Somewhere around that number.

The Gametrailers review was pretty harsh on FFXII, giving it an 8.  7s on both story and gamplay.  They thought the battle system was a little broken (too dependant on melee attacks and too much mana cost on summons) and thought the story was "meh."  But the review REALLY made it seem like FFXII is a lot like FFXI.

Ah, guess I'll see when I get home and take the shrinkwrap off.
