Todd's lying again, as with every time he talks about this game.

They were caught off guard? Really? After having a beta with all those issues, you thought they would somehow magically go away? Get the hell out of here Todd you liar.

We have no idea how many times we will attempt to sell the game to you at full price- I MEAN how many episodes there will be.

Seriously? They don't know?

Seriously?

"Sales are falling and we are desperate. Even though we just made record revenue, we laid off our workers anyways because I wanted more money. So now we're going to leech the last bits of goodwill and cash out of our audience. Expect microtransactions two weeks after launch!"

Inspired by Rockstar?

They're going to be overworking their developers to the point of mental breakdown?

I was actually impressed that they would take a "We're starting over" stance and prevent importing, but then after further reading they're allowing just SOME. Which means they're just LAZY and didn't want to have to implement animations and such for all the others.

Microtransaction sales? It would be laughable if it wasn't so pathetic and desperate.

YIKES that is some serious downgrade. Just...get it for a platform that it runs competently on. This game deserves it.

Hopefully this does NOT mean "You can finish the game without ever getting into combat" and just means there's non-lethal combat methods instead.

Every game that has allowed you to talk your way out of every situation and avoid all combat invariably has no idea what to do with the quest rewards and loot, and give you stuff that makes you better at combat that just sits around unused, making it extremely dissatisfying to the player. Torment: Tides of Numenera had this problem.

@tidus_ff: The bombing mission is the tutorial. From a story perspective the prologue is Midgar, because the goal of your characters is completely different once you're out of Midgar and the game begins proper with the party assembled. (And not coincidentally there's nothing left for you in Midgar)

About time. The refusal by Square to localize this game is one of their most long standing disgraces. Unfortunately whenever Square tries to remake something they rarely understand what made the original good. Their Secret of Mana "remake" is proof of that. Hopefully they won't ruin the game, but it's a distinct possibility.
