started playing this over the weekend, 6 hours in and although i am loving it does it let go of your hand at any point? Mr Drippy (although well voiced - in english - is driving me insane with his constant need to tell me exactly what to do. I can work out for myself that a cat is a cat! i don't need to be told|
Also at any point do you need to concentrate on the battle's at any other point then bosses? i have found myself just whacking attack over and over whilst reading the cricket/falling asleep and my mite is demolishing all that stands before him
anyway, this may seem like a negative post but i am really loving the game when it lets me loose

50 hours in and every time you come to a locked box Drippy will go "Gee whizz, do you think maybe you have a spell to unlock this?" depsite it being the 568th locked chest. Same goes for taking / giving hearts etc.
It's very fucking annoying.
dammit, well i guess it is just something i will have to put up with if i want to continue with this, hope it doesn't taint the whole game for me

Posted this in the completed games thread. Spoilered most of it as there are a couple of minor spoilers in it and I couldn't be bothered to spoiler each individual bit through fear of missing something.
A diary of Ni No Kuni
Mom, I miss you. And I've decided that somehow, someway, I'm going to make things right and bring you back. I've met this really neato guy called Drippy. He's swell. And Welsh. He's Lord High Lord of the Fairies, and I just know he's going to help me find you. Which would be really neato.
Although I miss you, mom, I'm really enjoying this journey to bring you back. It's been really neato. My adorable little Welsh friend, Drippy, has taken me to his world and he's even taught me this new trick to mend broken hearts. It appears that there are a few people in Drippy's world who have been left broken hearted. Which is a terrible thing. But I'm going to put that right. This world is really neato as well, dangerous, but I feel like I've got the powers, alongside my Welsh sidekick, to tackle anything.
Although I canít wait to see you again Mom, this place is so beautiful I never want our journey to end. Iím getting used to using familiars to do battle for me and Iím learning some really neato spells. Iíve even met a tree that spoke to me.
I've met this really cool girl called Esther, Mom. I managed to mend her broken heart and she has agreed to join me on my quest. She has a familiar too, and I just know we're going to get on swell.
Fixed a few more people with broken hearts. I'm sure pleased to help people, but there are so many of them, and it's tiring running around town swapping pieces of heart around.
Apparently we each have another version of ourselves in the other world and when something happens to us in one world, it can affect the Ďusí in the other world. So to cure some of the people in this world, I need to travel back home to Earth to cure them in my world, which is neato. As Iím from Earth and not from this world, I wonder who the Ďmeí in this world isÖI canít wait to find out and so far there have been no clues whatsoever. Not one. Iím sure I really have no idea who it could be.
Some of the people here have started to display some odd communicational behaviour. Now only about one in ten conversations are spoken, while the rest are mimed. Iím trying to adjust and do the same, so Iíve restricted myself to saying just a few words, such as neato. Which the locals seem to really like.
More broken hearts fixed today, including a couple of people I'm sure I've already fixed before.
Okay, this is getting slightly weird. So before, while the majority of conversations were mimed, at least those that were vocal were spoken through to the end of the conversation. Now some conversations start off as mime, have a bit of speaking in the middle and then end up as mime again. Just a minute ago I even had a whole conversation where only one person spoke and the rest was mimed. It was very off-putting.
Although I like my new friends, they are a bit backward. When we battle against the creatures of this world with our familiars, theyíll often let me do all the hard work while they run around the sides casting spells that we donít need. Iíve tried to give them instructions, to make them more effective, but they ignore me most of the time. We could act better as a team. Also, Drippy has started doing this dance which helps heal us all, which is really kind of him, but he chooses to do it at the oddest moments and Iíve no idea why itís taken him so long to start doing it. Still, theyíre all such neato friends I shouldnít complain.
More broken hearts fixed.
Iíd never noticed before but Drippy says ĎTidyí a lot.
More broken hearts fixed, more minor quests solved and more diaries found.
Mom, donít take this the wrong way, but I really canít wait to see you now. I mean, I wanted to before, but this journey is turning into a bit of a grind. Iím not finding it challenging at all, the situations I find myself in are starting to feel very repetitive and although I really like helping people, Iím finding the amount of people that continue to get broken hearted a little irritating.
Today we met a dragon. An actual dragon, Mom. Although I wasnít as excited about it as I thought I would be as Iím sure Iíd seen that we would meet a dragon before it happened. Sort of like a premonition that happened one day as I waited to begin my journey. Which was a shame, as it slightly spoiled the surprise. Still, a dragon! It helped break up the monotony and now I can journey this world even quicker and get to you sooner.
Drippy is still telling me what to do every time we meet somebody whoís broken hearted. Heís been constantly holding my hand throughout the whole journey and wonít let me work things out for myself. I mean, bless the neato little welsh Lord High Lord of the Fairies and all, but itíd be rather nice if he trusted me to work things out for myself. I feel like I can't enjoy myself while he's constantly telling me what to do.
I want to shit down Drippy's throat until he dies, the annoying hand holding little welsh Lord High Lord of the annoying fucking pricks.
@kentmonkey i am in a similar boat, if i was someone who could rush through a main game and ignore side quests it would be a 9/10 for me so far. But after spending 2 hours trying to capture a tin man yesterday it is seriously going close to being a shelving job.
i did manage it but it is such a stupid system where i have to fight over 100 of the bastards (i checked it was 112) just to have the chance of capturing it.

Lost Odyssey was awesome, gutted I wasn't able to complete it due to the disk 4 bug .
There is a subtlety to the writing in this that Is fucking stunning. There is the traditional happy clappy jrpg coating of course but the undercurrent is so wonderfully handled.
As lovely as this, after 15 hours I'm finding it quite boring
The handholding is extremely tedious as well, not sure I'll stick with this...
