Right now I'm 50k guildies away from the 500k trophy. I'm 158/250 tamed familiars and 58% in Alchemy. I've maxed a few familiars in level and am close to maxing familiarity on those same familiars. Haven't stepped foot in the Ivory Tower yet.

This is the only game I've ever given a damn about getting a platinum.

I might try for a platinum in this game. I have never gotten a platinum. I don't chase trophies for the most part because most of them are so damned tedious. With this game, I'm having so much fun that even the tedious stuff doesn't bug me.

I made my own names for some, minus the ones I don't really ever care to use. You can get your ass I named that skeleton Boner.

Well good luck.

There's a little side mission after you beat the game that just relies on luck. Kind of making me mad. It has to do with alchemy. You have to make some kind of axe, and some of the items are randomly dropped from enemies in the last dungeon. I hate it when games force luck and chance upon you.

No from what I read it's a drop. A random drop at that. Which is also a random encounter. Things like that bother me. Hopefully it's not true.

So I saw Toys R Us has this for $40. Then cancelled my Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm preorder just in time to snag this up. I'll just trade in some games to snag SC. Excited to see what all the fuss is about.

Volvo, if you liked Dragon Quest VIII, I don't see how you could not like this. I know you love Pokemon, and others say it is similar to that (I've only played a very little Pokemon, but I don't remember them being similar, found both fun) so I can't see how you wouldn't like the game. Oliver is just one of the best heroes in a long time.

My opinion's it is Level-5's take on Dragon Quest. To me, that is the best way to sum it up. I know they've made those games lately, but it is what you would have gotten if Level-5 made Dragon Quest V which had some monster catching.

I never played DQVIII, but I loved DQV so that makes me happy.

Awesome. Ni no Kuni is fan-fucking-tastic. It's the console Pokemon RPG people have been yelling about since 1998.

Damn, couldn't get a copy. Oh well, not like I have the time for a massive RPG like this anyways right now. I'll be on the lookout for another deal though.

I don't think that's the one. It's a mission that I believe is unlocked after you beat the game. I have to find something in the ivory tower.

Maybe it is that one, but the name of it didn't ring a bell. I'll fire up the game and give it a gander and see if it is the one. Thanks for the tip!

Yeah, I'd love the strategy for it. It seems like it could be a bitch and I'd like to get all of the merit awards.

Thanks. You can also get the kaleidestone in Ivory Tower from the Honky Tonkers there. I might attempt it there just because you can fight that one enemy that is worth 27,000 xp. Thanks for the tips. How long did it take you to get all the parts?

Almost got that platinum pspiddy? Anyone else? I'm at 52% and I think I'm going to stop there. At least I made half-way!

I think I enjoyed the game the most doing all those post-endgame hunts though.

I'm not sure of my %. I do plan on getting the plaintum though. Doing just really long things like 250 familiars are the ones I'm looking forward to the least.

Been playing this in 2-4 hour chunks since it came in from Gamefly Tuesday. I'm really digging it. I agree with most of the responses here (and I say most because I've skimmed, avoiding spoilers) and I want the soundtrack when its available.

Right now, I'm at Al Mamoon, running errands and grinding a little before I hit The Temple of Trials. It feels pretty cool to get a companion but right now I'm hoping that the battle system doesn't feel too cumbersome, especially in boss fights. I had to really pay attention while fighting Rusty's Nightmare so I hope this is easier with more than one leader to manage. Anyone else have a problem like this early on?

I rarely switched between characters. I was almost always pro Oliver, and I only ever really resorted to him when people needed to heal. The thing that will annoy you the most is how fast everyone uses their MP even though you set it to them rarely using it. Idiots couldn't get enough of their spell casting.

I set Esther to be a healer, but she was shitty at it. I had to switch to Ollie all of the time, especially towards the end of the game.

I hear you there. I was playing it 5-6 hours straight, staying up pretty much all night for 3 days until I finally realized I have to spend my time on other things. Such as getting to bed at a decent time!
