It sounds like some people are having similar but not quite the same issues that I’m having with mobile. Using Chrome on iOS (12.0.2 I believe). Video player takes a long time to load. Downloading videos show long buffer times on videos as well. Not sure if the player doesn’t initialize until there is adequately buffered video but it could be just related to that. This happens both on WiFi and data.

Let's hope they don't smother them. Ideally we get some decent games out of it though.

Does it come with instructions on how to challenge someone, and what I should be challenging them to exactly?

Definitely lol'd at this, but I'm also down for the action.

I might have been one of the only people who was into this game when it was still more about "survival" with random quest encounters occurring. I played several hours last night and was sort of bummed about the lack of all that stuff from before. The progression is much more fast paced now. I'm already out of the starting area after basically going through what was in the QL. The story has been kinda interesting, a bit of a spin on a 1984-esque vibe. I know it garners a lot of comparisons between Bioshock but I really don't see much similarity between the two, beyond the loose "fake utopia" theme. But then again that was not something Bioshock created, just a different take. The biggest knock against it are some of the things that Dan brought up during the QL. There are a lot of half baked ideas in here, or seemingly cut corners perhaps for the sake of getting something done. They don't really come together at all, but I wouldn't say I haven't been having fun kinda messing around with the sort of broken AI. They also REALLY spread out the starting area in a way that just makes it feel dead in a sort of disappointing way. However, I've quite enjoyed all the story elements they've put into the game so far. It's just sort of this bizarre wacky game that has some dark undertones that can really shine when they do.

All that said $60 for this game is insane. I think I bought it at the original $30 price tag, which I think is alright for this game.

Tomba was always fascinating to me. Never owned it but I had a demo disc with it on there and played it way too often.

@mesoian: I was going to say that I made Primrose a scholar for prepping her for Ch 2 (since I switched out Cyrus) and I was pretty unimpressed with her power. Maybe it was just her relatively low level but she was not doing much damage at all.

I honestly never expected them to intertwine, I thought it would be more SaGa Frontier, or I guess in the vein of Odin's Sphere. I was kinda offput initially that you could go around and collect the other characters into one party. Ultimately though it seems like you just play akin to solo stories while still leveling your other characters.

So I’ve played some more and like @Hylian100 said it’s pretty difficult. They come up with a lot of interesting challenges that I’m enjoying. It’s got a weird story that I’m also appreciating. If you’re looking for a more challenging single player I’d recommend this. Definitely a lot more interesting than the shipped single player.
