This is finally out here tomorrow in the UK, but won't be getting a release at all in the US. Meh, I thought, yet another dull JRPG... until I watched some videos and read a few reviews.

My copy's already on its way, mainly because at the moment £30 seems like a steal for a GOTY contender that could end up being impossible to find. I know it's on the Wii, but still - anyone else getting it?

Had a quick look at some footage. Again this looks like something I'd rather have on a 'proper' console than on the Wii but it does look pretty spectacular.

I definitely would have preferred having this on the HD consoles. But seeing as it's technically a first-party game, that was never going to happen. Sometimes you just have to be grateful that a game like this is being made at all, and that it's being released in the UK. :)

Anyway, I won't be playing it this weekend - Shopto have said that, due to unexpected demand, my copy won't be shipped until next week. :(

The postman should be delivering my copy this morning.

If not, he is going to understand the true meaning of a bulging sack!

Arsespanners!

Postman has been. No sign of it.

Gave him a good kick in the bollocks! :-)

Did you get your copy then, Ace? Mine was dispatched today, probably won't get a chance to start the game until next week though.

Heh, proper militant. I'm so used to interesting RPGs being on handhelds these days that the getting one on the Wii is like some sort of gift from Zeus. :D

Finally arrived yesterday.

Postman came. No parcel. I spoke to him about it.

About 3:00pm the doorbell rings. It is the postman with the game. He had gone back to the depot and had a hunt around for it. Apparently it had been put in the wrong bag or something.

Full marks to him for coming back the same day. :-)

Feckin' hell! You must have the world's best postie. If I said anything like that to mine, he'd probably say "Whuh?", drool slightly, then urinate on the welcome mat.
