Video gaming fans will know about the debacle behind the pre-orders for the Wizard's Edition version of this game, with Namco Bandai having to issue an apology. If you don't know the story, this link gives a nice recap: http://www.ign.com/blogs/mikebrns/2013/01/24/ni-no-kuni-and-the-wrath-of-the-horrible-pr-disaster Anyway, I am one of the angry ones who had their pre-order cancelled (eBay scalpers are selling it for upwards of £250, but generally around the £150 mark, grrrrrr), however, I did manage to get the regular version for a decent price on-line (my local Game store whacked the price up to £55 instead of the standard £40 for new games instore). I am only 3 hours into the game and maaaaaaaaaaan, it is glorious. The visuals are fantastic, especially the cut scenes, but then, with Studio Ghibli's input it was bound to be. The controls are fairly intuitive if you've played any number of JRPG's before, with all the staples of a good RPG - immersive story, daft characters, a fantasy world, pressing 'X' quite a lot :evil: Is anyone playing this yet?
