Meh, I don't really like playing demos of games I know I'll get.

It just makes me more eager to get the game, which in turn makes it seem longer.

Besides, still trying to decide what to do with my 360 TBh ~_~

This demo has actual gamerscore associated with it, ten achievements. Haven't heard of that before.

Well, that's pretty cool actually.

Let us know how it goes eh?

If my 360 was functioning, I would have entered (assuming I could, I didn't check the rules for Canadian resident eligibility).

Well I've only got to play an hour or so (small children next door so I won't be waking them with late night explosions from the TV) so just a few initial thoughts.

Not too bad sounding.

Do they let your Agility max out faster like they did in the CD1 demo?

All the skills seem to be progressing faster tbh, but again I'm not sure how much of that is simply false memory.

Just downloaded it, and a 15 minute play around.

It's amazing.

It's a lot of fun. catching those bloody moving renegade orbs can be a pain though

I knew it, the orb chasing is going to be annoying ~_~

Well, hopefully I'll have a new 360 and be done with Blue Dragon by the time this comes out.

Feels great when you catch one though, it's not so much annoying as a steep learning curve. I'm curious to see how things work out in the final game, how many will there be? Oh and also Orb ping (shows up every orb in about 20 feet on your mimimap for a few seconds) is the best innovation ever. Haven't tried catching a driving renegade orb yet since my driving is a weak point

^Post glitch rears its ugly head.

*uses this post to fix it*

Well, being able to ping orbs will certainly be a big boon!
