Anyways! I finally finished the part after the Trials and caught a Bonehead finally! Yes I know I'm not that far... :(

I'm about 25 hours into the game. I'm at the part where the main quest requires me to go to three separate places, so I'm doing as many sidequests as I can until I start that.

I am at 25 hours of gameplay, and my charcter is level 28. I have done everything in the first 2 areas, and just completed the fairyland story line. I am having a lot of mixed feelings, i guess more frustration, as this is my first JRPG and some of the mechanics and /or tools that i am accustomed the game lacks or is just not implemented well. Still cant figure out why they cut out a ton of dialogue, or just didn't do it, because the animations are there to have it included. Weird omission imo.

Finished it and my final playtime was around 40 hours. I'm in the post game now but I think I'm going to wait a bit before tackling that stuff. I absolutely adored the game though, it was great, such an impressive exclusive for the PS3.

  • Playtime: ~6 hours
  • Party Level: ~15
  • Current location: Al Mamoon

I've been taking things a bit slow, mostly because I want to finish all the side quests. As soon as I got to Al Mamoon I took on all the quests that were available, finished all of them and only have the bounty hunt left to do. After that I'll be continuing on with the story. I'm not sure if I'm over-leveled for the point I'm at but most fights are easily handled, boss fights are a bit more interesting but I don't think I've gotten to a point where I had to rely on consumables to get through a fight. Died once on the first bounty fight though!

Pretty much this. Taking my time with the game, plus I keep getting distracted by other things.

Playtime about 10 hours, my last story beat was beating the trials, but that was an hour or so ago, I have been busy catching familiars and doing side quests.

I don't believe they changed the talking animations from the Japanese version. Welcome to first JRPG

Anyway.

26 hours, level 25, Just starting Treeheti. Done every side quest so far and spent a good deal of time trying to tame and level familiars I find to be cool.

About 8 Hours or so. Oliver's at level 19 and I'm at the top of the volcano at that boss fight.

I believe 9 or so hours. I just finished the volcano and I keep doing all the side stuff before moving out of an area.

I'm around 20 hours in, lv. 22 or so. I got stomped by the squid boss in Momma's tummy (like only got the boss to around 50% health) a couple times, so I think I'm going to have to go level up a bit and come back. This is the first boss I've had trouble with so far, so I'm guessing I'm underleveled. The only other time I died was against the volcano boss, but that was me playing sloppy; I trounced him pretty easily the second time.

I'm at almost 50 hours, level 68. I am 80% done story wise. I have been mostly doing side stuff for the past 18-20-ish hours.

I was getting burned out so I'm taking a week long break from the game. Last time I played, I was about 23 hours in and I was just leaving Hamelin. Everyone is around level 32-33.

@Irvandus:

I dont know if i said it right. When there is a cut scene it goes into the animation, which is super awesome, and then quickly drop out into text. But you can clearly see the characters mouthing the words and being expressive. I dont understand why they wouldnt add voice with all that work is done.

About 18 hours in, just started to wander around Hamelin. Doing all the side quests I can so am jogging around the world map right now. Level 30 ish I believe am hesitant to look at guides about good familiars but don;t wanna be stuck later on. I hear Oliver's Mitey sucks late game. Right now Oliver is rolling with Mitey, Swaine's Gunther dude and I am trying to train up the cat bandit dude to later replace Mitey. Esther has Gogo, the babana familiar Skinny and a wombat thing. Swaine has the lemur, a skeleton dude and cubber club. It would be cool if you guys could just point out "hey that guy stinks or good combo of dudes". Right now i'm choosing based on looks and their second evo stats and then maybe swapping them out. Also choosing genus' based on the characters preferred ones.

@D_Bones: Mitey is pretty mediocre (or less than) - you should definitely get your purrloiner higher and replace him asap

After a bit of exploration and an insane pokemon hunt where I wouldn't leave an area until I had every single type of enemy available. I moved my story onto the Fairy village which is by far the most ghibli-ish/ messed up thing I have come across in the game.

I then went on another hunt found that island with the Toko's, wouldn't...COULDN'T stop until I had caught one, in the process leveling Oliver to about 59, and Esther and Swaine to 55 & 55. After doing all the sidequests I could in the porcine palace I'm now about to head to the Pig king or whatever.

15 hours in and just departed from The Golden Grove and embarked on my journey in the sea.

The game has a nice way of saying your familiar dudes are to low in levels, go train some more.

@D_Bones: The cat is good,but end-game he wouldn't be the best,when I say end-game I mean permanent godly familiar,probably good until you beat the game,I'd get the genuses for each party member though for dat extra boost,and Swaine is okay,just not for end-game,and try to get Tin man for Swaine,double tank and you're practically good with Bonehead and the Lemur.

@Stepside: Mitey is good enough to get you through the main game if you want to keep him. I was using both Mitey and Purrloiner and it wasn't until after Nevermore (like 80% through the game) that the stat difference started to become noticeable.

Around 12 hours in, currently in Al Mamoon doing side quests and capturing familiars. Next goal is to go to the volcano area. I have Oliver's Mite, Esther's Drongo, the monkey, the green small fairy, the skeleton familiar, the Naiad, and the sun. I also got the babanas-looking familiar and the one with the purple turban because of the side quest.

Still have a couple more side quests and bounty hunts to do before moving forward to the volcano area. Game is awesome! :P

Last played the game on Saturday, I've been very busy as of late but I got up to the part where you save King Tom and are ready to go to the Desert. Not far, I know but at least I'm getting somewhere.

10 hours in and just beat the Volcano Monster, still enjoying the game. I'm a little disappointed that there is not much spoken dialogue as there was early on though, but I suppose that's just part of the genre.

39 hours, I'm at Hamlin doing errands and haven't entered the palace yet, My character/familiars are around mid 30's. Loving the game.

As a side note, It probably wasn't a good idea to start FF4 in anticipation of this game.

: Woah have you been training? I passed that part so far (not gonna spoil) and I'm still 40 - 50 hours in!

: Yeah that was the biggest troll in the game in my opinion,and I wish they just do a whole entire dialogue for one specific _____ground,it would've been funny to hear them talking.

: You'll probably have to re-fight him again sadly.
