    I've never really been a fan of JPRG's (or RPG's in general) - always seems like too much faffing about, and not enough action...

    Yeah I read something similar on Eurogamer I think. You cant talk to the majority of NPC's etc and there's only 3 towns and 2 of them are linear like you mentioned. I'll probably still get it though as my recent purchase of FF7 off the PSN has fuelled my hunger for some FF lovin'.
    Kalniel: "Nice review Tarinder - would it be possible to get a picture of the case when the components are installed (with the side off obviously)?"
    CAT-THE-FIFTH: "The Antec 300 is a case which has an understated and clean appearance which many people like. Not everyone is into e-peen looking computers which look like a cross between the imagination of a hyperactive 10 year old and a Frog."
    TKPeters: "Off to AVForum better Deal - £20+Vat for Free Shipping @ Scan"
    for all intents it seems to be the same card minus some gays name on it and a shielded cover ? with OEM added to it - GoNz0.

    Wait a month after it's release and Zavvi will no doubt chuck it in their Monday sale for around £17
