My god, I can't believe I avoided reading about this game until now.  I had no idea it had that timer-based village restoration aspect.  I'm such a sucker for those.

I'm sold on buying the full game, but I think I'll still finish the demo before doing so.  Can I start adding all y'all with friend codes while I'm on the demo version, or can I only do that from the full game?
I'm pretty sure that all transfers - I think 20 friends transfer from the demo.

IMHO, finishing the demo is absolutely not needed. All it gives you are a few starter items to (slightly) help you on your way.

Although yes, any friends you got for your town transfer on over. That said, you can't transfer townspeople from the retail game back down to the demo. But add away the friend codes. I could always use more slav...er, townspeople for my place. biggrin

Don't forget to update your 'special move' that you send over from time to time (under the Summon Friend power in combat). I have a friend of someone who has spent 20 hours in the game, but still has the default equipment and summon. Tongue

13-2 and Lightning Returns were released purely for milking purposes, no? To recoup some of the losses the publisher has seen lately.

The 'losses' that Squenix 'had' were because of entirely utterly totally made up sales expectations.

Like Hitman selling 5 million copies. Tomb Raider selling 6 million. Insane stupid things like that.

If you're not maxed, then you do get additional Norende villagers when you add friends.
Is there something special you have to do to get regular friends added to the village?  I have a bunch of friends in the game, and I can do everything else with them - Abilink, summon, etc. but the only ones who show up as villagers are the random "internet friends" you can get each day.
I haven't quite cracked the code with the whole friends thing yet.  Seems like sometimes people show up, and sometimes they don't.  I can't really figure it out.

I dunno. I think there's some kind of cap either on friends or internet people or whatever. I just have no idea how it all works.

Also, I've added in everyone who posted their codes here. Looks like I'm friends back with all of you at this point.

Did not like FF13 at all, never touched 13-2, and have no intention on getting 13-3.

It seems that Squenix has completely forgotten what made Final Fantasy games good.

Either that or the entire team went into making Bravely Default (which is just fantastic).

As far as my town goes, I didn't get a chance to get to that point in the game this morning. But I did add all the listed codes into my 3DS (so it'll fully 'friend' you all once you friend me). Once I get back home and a bit further into the game, I'll be able to update my town stuff and whatever.

And it sounds like that your town info goes into Squenix's central server once you upload it - so there's no need to be online at the time.
When I go to add you, it acts like you didn't already add me.

Because I think we've been just using this thread to pass around codes and not the central one. Tongue

Done. Also there seems to be a cap on how many friends you can gain in a single day (for your town and such), which I think is at 4. I dunno for sure though.

Another thing to consider is that AMD is going to own a lot of gaming tech standards in the coming years since their chips are the only chips in almost every console. Every developer making a game will have to learn nuances of AMD chips, both CPU and GPU.

Exactly. AMD processors and ATI graphic cards in both the PS4 and XB1. Kinda crazy how that turned out this generation.

I'm interested in spending more time with it...once SoE puts about three times as many areas into the game so people can actually claim a spot in the world to build upon.

But again, it's Alpha, so I don't mind a few (big) screwups like that.

Past that? I'm excited for what I see. And for what I see possible in the future.

2: People spend all that real money for this?  Wow 

No.

What it is is that you can purchase a month's subscription in token form, and then you can sell or trade this token to other players for goods or in game money. Since you can easily see the price of a month's sub on the game's auction house (which no doubt fluctuates all the time), this allows you to get a 'very rough estimate' of the 'real price' of ships and such destroyed.

A very, very rough estimate.

Thus, the 'estimated value' of ships destroyed in any massive battle.

I blame Ubishit's Ushit protection. It's a piece of crap and frankly has no right to be existing as it gives nobody but Ubisoft anything useful.

Also, if you're in the UK you can't even play the game as their main ISP won't connect to Uplay's servers or something along those lines. Must suck to be them.

Game itself? Tons of fun. Really good game. Just Ushit needs to go the way of the dinosaurs.

That's kind of surprising.  Since they already have the last gen versions you'd think it would be relatively trivial to port to one more system with that version.
There's nothing trivial about porting between the three last-gen platforms, least of all the Wii U with its touch screen and infamously hard developer tools. The entire rendering engine would have to be specifically written for that platform, and the control system would need to be overhauled as well, not to mention the additional testing required. At some point the costs outweigh the potential income, particularly when the platform has so few potential customers, most of who already own another console anyway.

Exactly. And who buys multiplatform titles on the WiiU anyhow?

That said, Kotaku has updated their article saying that it was just a glitch in Gamestop's computers. It'll be back up tomorrow.

Based on BG1 for the iPad, you get the complete game that launched on the PC for that price. But if you want additional classes and brand new content, you'll have to pay for it.

On the PC version, you just pay extra straight off as all the DLC is included with the game.

At least I think that's how I remember it.

Also it's an edit of the SNES (US) version's script based on posts. And like usual, Squenix doesn't know how the hell to properly charge for things (but that doesn't seem to matter, as people will happily pay way too much for it anyway).

Thankfully, you don't need to use StreetPass for Bravely Default.  You can add residents to your city over the internet or just keep the game running in sleep mode to wait out the building times.

Yup. The full game will have a daily 'phone home to the server' thing where you'll get more townspeople, as well as just adding friends directly over the internet (so like for people here who buy the game).

And keeping your console in StreetPass mode (lid down and game paused) is useful as every 8 hours that way you'll get a token for a free turn that you can spend whenever you want (max of 3). Or you can buy said turns via RMT (yes, seriously).

I'm far less enthused about it telling me to "connect with my friends" so I can progress more quickly through the building stages.  

FYI - building ONLY happens when you're playing the game or have it paused in Streetpass mode. It does NOT advance when the console is fully off or if you're playing something else.

Buying for sure (barring very negative reviews):
Bravely Default (3DS, 2/7) - someone forgot to mention this in the top list. Tongue Also an RPG that plays like a Square game back in the SNES era (when they could do no wrong).
Watch Dogs (PS4 or PC, not sure yet) - wanted to jump into the next gen gaming world with this title alone.

Maybe:
Thief (PC) - still not sure how well this is going to turn out. It has been giving off a LOT of warning signs.
Infamous: Second Son (PS4) - still not sure about this. Never played the second title, either.

Neverwinter seems like it was designed with this eventuality in mind, so this should be pretty painless. I don't see how they plan to do this on last-gen consoles though. They aren't powerful enough to handle this kind of game. The Wii U maybe, but the others simply have too little RAM.

Agreed.

That said, while porting to the PS4/XB1 would be a LOT easier (as they're basically PCs), Champions Online was originally designed as a MMO for the PC/360 (and was supposed to use the Marvel license instead of the Hero Games/Champions one). There's even full support for the 360 controller built right in.

Also, the PR doesn't mention what titles they're planning on porting, so who knows what exactly we'll end up seeing.
