    Have only managed to play a hour and a bit so nothing much has happened so far. It's a pretty standard jrpg apart from the combat system. The 3d is a bit Matt though so been playing it in 2d

    Getting a bit peeved with Gamestop now.

    Ordered it on Tuesday. Order status is confirmed and the money has been taken but still not dispatched. Sent an email to them yesterday. As yet no news.

    The fact that it is now unavailable is now making me nervous that either I got one of the last copies or that they have taken the money and not got any stock.

    How long should it take to process?

    @munki - I think the biggest annoyance for me is the floaty text boxes in 3D mode. Other than that I think it can look quite nice in 3D, but as it's a text-heavy game, even with VO on, I play it mainly in 2D as well.

    @AceGrace - mine was dispatched the day after I ordered it. Let's hope they didn't get carried away and take more orders than they had copies. Is there a number you can call at all? Good luck, I hope you're able to sort it.

    As for me, I did Choral Castle last night - really enjoyed that bit. Just arrived in Chesedonia, as of about 2.30 am last night - I am finding the game hard to put down!

    I think I will email them again.

    Woo half day at work due to the weather god bless the government. Getting into it now and I'm on the Tartarus. I tend to switch the 3d on when playing in bed as I find the darkness helps but it could be I'm just weird

    I do have a question though occasional during battle there is coloured items on the ground can you pick them up????

    Gamestop.co.uk

    Dreadful website but no-where else had it in stock!

    @munki - I've noticed that too. I'm not 100%, but I was thinking it tended to be where you killed an enemy..? Perhaps it's an indicator that that particular enemy dropped an item that you receive on the battle summary screen. Grandia does this, so I kind of assumed that's what it was. I could be wildly, stupidly wrong though ;)

    And the game really picks up from the point you're at now, it gets hard to put down!

    How long did it take to dispatch and how long to arrive once it was sent?

    It took two days to dispatch and then two days to arrive.

    I thought they were a pretend webiste at first; their confirmation emails are full of bad english and spelling errors.

    Perhaps I am jumping the gun a bit. I am so used to the excellent service from ShopTo.

    Ok got about 3 hours clocked in total now and I'm liking it so far. The story its refreshingly light compared to the likes of Skyrim and Dark Souls and while Luke starts off as a bit of a tit I'm starting to like him cause of his hate for thing

    Think I might have missed the boat on this one, can't find it anywhere. Shame, I really wanted it too and was waiting until uni deadlines had passed. Big mistake, apparently.

    Just had a reply from Gamestop.

    Apparently no copies in their warehouse (despite it being in stock on the site when I ordered it) but they are sourcing it from one of their shops.

    /fingers crossed.

    I still think it's very strange when publishers get so paranoid of over-stocking these issues occur. It wouldn't be so bad iif they release a second batch after seeing the first sell, but with Konami in particular it rarely happens. I don't have a 3DS yet though (region protection put me off, even after the price drop). Odd that we got the game before the US too (although I suppose the US has a worse track record than us re: handheld Tales games (ToE PSP).

    US region still feels like the safest bet for an RPG fan to me, but I just know something will come out as a Europe exclusive to screw with me later ;) If it hadn't been for the region-protection I'd have bought a 3DS right after the price drops but for now I'll continue the waiting game (I completed Abyss on PS2 years ago anyway ;) and stick with my DS Tales games.

    I must have been lucky to get hold of a copy by the sounds of it! It's crazy the demand is high yet no-one has it.

    Getting stuck in this weekend!

    I find myself mostly playing this in bed. But then my right hand goes numb after a while :s I wonder if the CPP will make the 3DS more comfortable to hold when lying down.

    I'm nine hours in, finally made it back to Luke's manor. Baticul is pretty cool, reminded me of Lindblum in FFIX, with the air cars :)

    Got to say, in the first 4 hours I've never chuckled so many times in a game. Luke is a superb character!

    They usually aren't in the dubbed versions.
