Ah, too bad.  The first 30 people who put it together got a code for every game in the Ubisoft catalogue.

Ha, see all that is pretty much why I haven't waded in to Pokémon before. It never sounded like a game so much as an obsession. I've seen that video of the kid finding his shiny ponita and it was kind of frightening.

I'm hoping since they added more story this will be a little more inviting. I feel kind of bad that I am beating up on preschoolers right now though Tongue

I'm kinda frustrated with the Regalia (your car):

-  Most of the reviews I read said that it's worth actually driving from place to place instead of fast traveling because you get to hear interesting bits of dialog between the characters.  So far (through 7 hours), I've only heard one conversation while in the car, even on long (3 minute) drives.  Weird thing is, the characters look like they're talking (i.e. Prompto turns around in the front seat, the character's mouths are moving, they appear to be having a conversation), but there's no actual dialog.  Bug, maybe?
-  Why is the "Manual" option is always greyed out when I get into the car?  Can I not just get in and drive?
-  I was low on gas and was trying to get to the gas pump in Hammerhead.  Tried the "Navigate to map marker" option, selected the gas pump...and Ignis parked the car across the street.  I tried manually driving there, and it wouldn't let me pull into the station (I could only stay on the main road).  I eventually had to fast travel to another location, then fast travel back to Hammerhead, and on the third try, it finally put me in front of the pump.  Really strange.

EDIT:  Posted this over at GameFAQs, and it seems that a) the manual drive option doesn't unlock until later in the game, and b) mutliple people are seeing the same "looks like they're talking but no dialog" thing.  Still not sure if it's a bug or not.

So... I played the "demo" for this the other day and was thoroughly turned off and quit without getting to the end of it. Is this "nightmare having / Mario collecting / squeaky hammer bonking" sequence actually in the game?  disgust

Not at all.  That Platinum demo was just really weird, and is not representative of the actual game at all.  The actual game has zero coin collecting, zero platforming, and zero stupid "squeaky hammer" stuff.  I think that demo was just done to show off the graphics engine, and nothing more.  It literally has nothing to do with how the actual game plays.  If you want to get a sense of the actual game, go play the Episode Duscae demo.  That one is basically the first hour'ish of the game, and will give you an pretty good idea of how it plays.  Just note that the combat has been significantly streamlined from the time that demo hit (6 months ago?) to release.

Manual drive is available at night because Noctis is the only one who can drive at night. If he doesn't, glasses guy makes you rest. I get why they do this - you have to be able to react to daemons showing up in the road - but there's not a good excuse in the story why you can't drive during the day if you want.

Biggest gripe for me on Xbox is load times, they can pretty bad. Pretty sure I've lost time by fast traveling sometimes.

Damn, last night's tribal council was epic. The person who got voted out got hosed big-time indirectly by Ken the model, who did something so headscratchingly lame it's a wonder he didn't get eliminated himself.

LOL yeah - but shockingly if you watched the actual final vote, none of the drama mattered.  Will actually stayed with his flip so the outcome would have been the same.  Essentially Adam wasted his hidden immunity idol.  That said, it was a little odd how he decided to play it for Hannah, as you said  it seemed more logical to have gone for Ken for being an idiot.

The interesting thing in the last couple episodes is how Jay suddenly went from hot target to "under the radar."  Sneaky!  He's got the athleticism to win challenges and a couple of free votes on the jury, so why not go for him?

That said, I do think neurotic David can bring a couple of sheep with him and win the whole thing.

I'm also playing the game, but I'm doing wrap-up in Omega Ruby at the same time, so progress is slow. I've got more than 450 different pokemon in OR right now, and every single legendary that existed before Sun and Moon was released, as well as all Mythicals except one. I've got all pokemon that can be captured in OR except one, which I'm still trying to get (damn you Mirage Spots).

As for Sun and Moon, I picked Moon as my game. On the second island (which is much better than the first) and enjoying it. My pokedex is up to a little above 60, and I'm planning to catch'em all. With the upcoming January update to the Pokemon Bank that keeps track of your National Dex, I'm going to make a serious attempt to catch every single pokemon ever released, and trade those that are impossible to catch in the games I own in the series (White 2, Omega Ruby, Moon).

The quality of life improvements in Sun and Moon are a godsend. It's nice to no longer have to keep a spreadsheet with strengths and weaknesses handy at all times, and the complete removal of HMs means I no longer have to carry around two almost completely useless pokemon just to be able to traverse the map.

I shouldn't have started playing the arcade game.  It lasted over an hour!  I could have quit I guess but wanted the high-score and any possible rewards.

Should I be selling all items in Treasures tab?  Description says sell for Gil.  Also, is there no "sell all" option?  I'm so used to many games implementing sell all junk these days.

I'm only 3 hours in and enjoying it.  I appreciate the somewhat original gameplay.  It doesn't feel like a Final Fantasy game (yet).  That's not necessarily a criticism, maybe the game can stand on it's own.  I am huge FF fan though and loved FF 12.  I need to play a lot more to determine if 15 will hold up to that standard.

I will also echo the recommendation to watch Kingsglaive and Brotherhood before playing this.

Just thought of another question, I equipped magic on the other guys but do they use it automatically?
