@rocospi: Yep, there's no way you'll find someone to help you out randomly that will actually be of use. Actually calling up someone you know won't be fast enough unless they're just sitting there waiting either.
Spent at least 9 hours on the game though. There's a lot of cutscenes and optional codec dialogue and and the timer only counts when you're actually playing. Just blazed through it on easy to see it as I was actually pretty short on time before leaving home for a few weeks. So yeah, I guess I'm more for the plot and spectacle of video games and don't really care if they last you at least 20 hours or whatever arbitrary number people obsess over these days.
