    What's the materia system like in the demo? Does the combat system have any depth? It didn't look like it from some of the videos I have seen.
    You just mash the button, but there are a few enemies late in the demo who require a strategy. I'll be damned if I know what it is, almost got slaughtered there.

    I guess the strategy is not mash buttons?

    Is it like FF13? Where everything is semi automated?

    You could do that, but then the dude's not going to attack.

    @Steve-Perry Nah, basically you have your main attack on square (press, not hold to auto-combo, like FFXV), and a harder hitting/slower moving mode on triangle (use this when you've staggered an enemy, basically), then in the menu (press X) you have magic, items and what are effectively specials, and then limits when you've taken enough damage.

    R2 (probably L2 as well, can't remember) will put you into the other party member's menu, so you can trigger them to use abilities/spells/items, or you can just switch them to playable with the d-pad.

    There's honestly a fair bit to remember the first time through, which is why it felt a bit messy to me. I completely forgot I had extra abilities in the menu halfway through the demo.

    Same I didnít mash nearly as enough the second time round and enjoyed it a lot more. I quite like building up to using abilities and magic etc. I think there will be a fair bit of strategy

    It's better the second time around, but I still found the combat system pretty unwieldy (aiming with Barret is a pain). And the ATB in an action game doesn't fit well.

    I think it works pretty well with the bullet time to select from the menus, breaks up the monotony of attacking and gives a little thinking space. Just needs a better indicator of being ready to use the menu than a tiny bar at the bottom left

    There was a Last Order anime. Fleshing our Zack was like all the extra Star Wars stuff, we need to know Zackís back story as much as we need to know how the rebels got the Death Star plans
    What? You mean you don't care to know this guy's back story?

    Thereís a fair chance with any people with physical pre-orders will get this early. Square have shipped the game early

    Prices for this are through the roof at the minute.

    I wonder if there would be much of a market if Square/Sony/Microsoft gave you the option to purchase digitally with a hard copy to follow as and when they can get it to you?

    I'd certainly be interested.

    I would be quite happy to buy it now if I knew it was going to come tomorrow. Might as well just start selling the digital copies. Although, I guess if they did that a load of people may cancel any physical copies...

    Also this fits in perfectly with what they want. They want consumers to buy digitally to stop the second hand market as they have no income from that. They're probably raking it in with digital. Especially since they slapped a huge price on it.

    Good point on the digital price. £59.99 is a bit steep so I probably would wait for a physical copy.

    This is true but even if they charged more for the privilege, I'd still be interested.

    Just checked Shopto for my preorder (which I placed yesterday). Apparently I'd managed to preorder it three previous times a couple of weeks ago, though luckily hadn't paid in advsnce for them. I've no emails from shopto confirming the orders, but they were just sitting there my preorders page along with the one I paid for yesterday. Weird and glad I caught it. :confused:

    Which is why I get physical still.

    I can play it and sell it for 30.00 which means I basically saved half the cost.

    I have so many game digital games that I am finished with but I can't get any value from them anymore.



    Although having said that if they released it today on digital I would be very tempted rather than having to wait.

    Sister and brother in law bought this for my birthday from GAME. Not sure what their policy is regarding deliveries of in store preorders at this time.
