Why would you buy a full game off of PSN? You miss out on the bonus DLC, better prices, etc...

Damn, sucks there are still problems. It's worth the hassle though. This game is great.

Because there are no game stores in my town or the nearest town. I'd have to order off the internet, I wanted to play it sooner rather than later.

Just had a quick look, there is no bonus DLC with basic game?

FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU-

Downloaded 16Gb AGAIN, installed it and nothing shows up on my XMB, now I have to download a further 6Gb.

This is beyond a joke, I won't be buying overpriced games digitally again from PSN.

No bonus as such but there are two free familiars in the PSN Store for everyone to get, Draggle and Golden Hurley. I was tempted to pick up digitally, but had so much Game store credit I ended up buying the disc version. Bonus of digital would have been sharing the game with a friend though.

Really struggling with this game, I'm playing on easy and I find myself getting pasted constantly even from random encounters, I'm only a couple of hours in. Really beginning to wish I hadn't spent £50 on it, I love the style and the story I just cant get my head round battles.

Takes a while but once it clicks I was fine (on normal). Starts to get easier once you have two humans in your party (not too far into the game).

Some battles are better done as Oliver and running around, as he casts from a distance. If you're using mite, you're doing a lot of melee fighting. Defending enemy special attacks is a must (gives you orbs as well). How far are you into the game? Some companions early on are actually better than mite, but of course you need to be able to tame them.

I would also recommend doing ALL sidequests early on, help you level, get equipment and get merit points.

I've not long opened up the boat travelling, absolutely loving the game. I'm now able to use all the functions as I've got alchemy now as well. It starts off slow, but now with my own familiars, three party members, the boat and alchemy, it's a blast.

I've just gone through Golden Forest and exited out the other side into the desert. I do defend special attacks but I seem to be going through a lot of heals, I don't see how its effective to fight as Oliver with magic when the MP replenishing stuff costs 200G a go.

I rely a fair bit on the orbs. One of the early merit rewards is for orbs to drop more frequently, I picked it after the ability to jump.

As you level up MP issues do lessen a bit.

Remember to feed mite treats, chocolate bars pump up damage.

Thanks, will give it another go. It's really frustrating.

Early game is a bit of a slog, once you get to the desert town and then get the ability to tame familiars it starts to open up.

On to the final battle, got about 20 minutes in last night and realised I wasn't going to have enough mana drinks, oh well will try again tonight!

Great game and looking forward to completing all the side quests and taming for the platinum trophy once it's all over. Don't think i've ploughed so much time in to a game in such a small space of time since Uncharted 2.

Go to the casino and play the card game for lots of points then buy the potions with them. There's guides online how to win the card game quite easily.
