Wikipedia release dates:

Europe:
June 15th
North America: July 17th

Also, Official Nintendo Magazine July Issue apparently has a Review Of Heroes of Ruin!
I haven't got the issue myself and can't find the review or the score posted online but here's
the article that states the review is in the latest issue. (Click Here)

Keep an eye on the comments underneath it, perhaps someone will mention the review.

Is it not June 15th release for Europe? I could have sworn the game was out in a few days here, I'll have to go back and check my pre-order.

Edit - Yeah my Zavvi pre-order still says 15th of June.

Yeah it's June, don't worry. ~P~ just screwed up a bit xD

Can someone confirm if you can buy/sell/trade items with people through Spotpass...? Someone (I forgot who) said you could, but everywhere I've read it said just Streetpass...

Also we have to think of some rule for online that people don't loot others' drops o.o I KNOW that'll get really annoying. They should've put in a time limit where only the person who killed/opened chest could pick the item up for like 3 secs.

Hi Champ!

Yep, I totally messed up. Meant to say June 15th. I've pre-ordered
the game myself and I suggest we get together and raise some hell
online when we've both got our hands on it. =)

Also, anyone know what ONM gave it in its review?

O: Looks like I'll be paying a visit to a retailer. Which store did you order from?

EDIT: Lol, I went to 3 different places but none of them had broken the street date.

Ordered my copy from Amazon today; hopefully it'll arrive at launch but I wasn't prepared to pay an additional ?6 to ensure that. Only 1 run of the demo left; I used my other this afternoon to dig into the stats system.

Just pre-ordered my copy from Amazon. They have it for $29.99 but if you get release day delivery/two day shipping like I did, it still ends up being $41 after tax, lol. Still, not a bad deal and I save gas from not having to drive 30 minutes to GameStop because I live far away from everything. Anyone gonna try and go straight to multiplayer? I think it'd be interesting to go through the entire game with the same people.

I would, but the only thing that holds me back is that everyone can pick up loot right away... That means Gunslingers and Alchitects are screwed, since they're ranged. Implementing a loot distribution system would've been so easy ):

Going to have to figure out some rules on who can pick up what with whoever I'm going to play online with.

(Lol I am posting too much in this thread)

http://www.elecplay.com/all/spotligh...rview-video-2/

New video discussing online with a maker of HoR! Also has new footage of bosses and dungeons. Looks like you will get special team buffs if you play with the same people online for long periods. Cool :3

The multiplayer is going to be awesome but I'm probably going to complete the game in single player mode first so as to get an appropriate set of gear; online is liable to be a scramble to get the loot first. My Savage will likely use a bulkier build than most to reflect that.

I'm only gonna play with friends that will set up rules regarding looting stuff and stand by them, or else I'll get really pissed o.o

Whoever will play with me, only pick up loot that is for your class and if it's clear you didn't kill the monster, please don't pick up the equip. :3

Or you will hear my rage over the microphone ^^

I was worrying about this last night. I agree that they should implement a loot distribution system where either everyone gets their own thing or everyone gets the same thing. Until then, I'm just gonna try not to play with strangers. Hope there's a feature to block random people from joining your game. It would suck to be playing with some friends and then have a random person come in and start stealing all the loot.

The information in the video Joba posted earlier highly suggests that you don't have to allow random people into your game; otherwise getting buffs for playing in a team consistently would become very difficult as the team would be changing all the time.

after 2 houts of gameplay im lvl 11 and 18% of the story completed, the main story quality its average buts is a fun game to play with friends and online, also the final bosses fights are cool, the best one til now its the leaviathan

but the dungeons and quest are a bit confusing sometimes you dont know what you must do, u just need to explore or kill mobs to gather some items and things like that

and the cutscenes from the story are cartoon like style

Have you used the Quest menu to set a certain quest active? That way it shows you the place you have to go on the map screen.

Also have you gone for the sidequests or just paid attention to the story? 18% after 2 hours doesn't sound too good.

1) How do you know it's 18% after 2 hours? Does the game have some method of telling you?

2) Does each dungeon count the same? If so then the early dungeons would take less time to complete and this suggests the game time would be somewhat more than the 10ish hours the current percentage suggests.

3) Pics or it didn't happen.

yes but it only shows the objective when you are "near" so you have to explore

but the game in its core is like, you have the main city, and there are vendors and quest givers, you take the quest for your lvls and then you go to a guy who sends you to the main story dungeon once you complete it its again the same take more quest and go to the next dungeon

about the 18% is what the game shows in the file info i dont know, maybe its only the main story progress i only have 1 side quest pending to do right now

and think in the fact that you have 4 clases to play thats lots of more hours trying to get the best stuff, i also found a vendor in the city that sells epic gear in exchange for some kind of tokens , i dont know how to get that maybe with the daily dlc quest i dont know

edit: theres also lots of people online try to search videos on youtube

I'll add you. I finally came to the realization that my Friend List is pretty much empty.
Chris/FC: 0688-5251-5416 What's your FC?
I'm really looking forward to the game. Pretty bummed out that the game was pushed back.

Heroes Of Ruin Nintendo 3DS Unboxing + Gameplay Video - YouTube

The above is a 14 minute unboxing which shows a decent length of gameplay.

The stats for the other two characters have also been confirmed. These are:

Alchitect:
+2 Might
+1 Vigor
+3 Soul

Savage:
+3 Might
+2 Vigor
+1 Soul

Base stats at level 1 are 10/10/10 plus whatever your level up bonuses are. For example, the level 1 Savage had 13 Might, 12 Vigor and 11 Soul.

I pre-ordered it from Amazon UK on June 8th with Super Saver Delivery (3 - 5 days delivery) and even though its been dispatched the estimated delivery date is Wednesday, June 20th!

Is this accurate or do you think their just covering their asses in case the delivery is delayed?

I usually take Amazon's release dates as the latest you can expect to have it. It should have arrived sooner than that. My estimated delivery date is Tuesday, yet I made the order Tuesday of this week!

Went out to get my copy today. :] I got a bit worried when my trusted retailer didn't have it (No longer trusted -_-) but luckily this random hypermarket/grocery store had it :3 And not with their usual rip-off prices either.

Gonna start it up now~

EDIT: One pretty big flaw I found with the game is that when you're using headphones, you can only BARELY hear speech and pretty much any sound effects like swinging your sword... If you intend to play it with headphones I'd think twice. Anyone else have this problem?

EDIT2: I tried again with earbuds and it worked fine... o.o For some reason my headphones don't work properly. Maybe I've chewed on the cords too much ^^;

Same here, I just got the dispatch email today, so it looks like Monday for the earliest for me .

I would have liked it today or tomorrow, but I'm not too bummed out, I can wait a few days.

I can't and bit of an idiot when it comes to money, I will likely buy it on the way home and work out what to do with the Amazon version Monday. Considering it will come sealed I may be able to return that version to wherever I buy it from later today, shhh they would never know.........................

That's why I don't buy something I want on launch day online anymore... more often than not it doesn't arrive on time D:

Completed the first Act in 2:13 with 17% done. Not too bad :P I'm at level 10 right, it's capped at 30 which sucks a bit >:

No one on my FL has it yet as far as I know so I haven't been able to try online, weapon trading/bidding or voice chat.

Is the maximum level seriously 30? That's absolutely ridiculous. An RPG shouldn't cap so early that you're a third of the way to max level after only two hours.

I'm not 100% sure but that's what I've heard and I haven't seen any equips past level 30 :/ It sucks .__. Maybe the leveling curve gets higher.

This is likely, every MMO I've played the amount XP needed to achieve the next level increases. Also bear in mind the mob level and general move set will become harder and more involved providing more and more of a challenge.

Man, no one cares about Australia. The HoR staff aren't even bothering to set different challenge times for Australia, we'll have to go by the European countdown, that means we miss out on sooooooo many challenges before we even get the game. Sad face.

....

I think I broke the game or something o.o I have 99999 gold which is max, and my inventory is full. That means that I can't pick up anything, I can't sell anything because my gold is maxed, and I can't buy anything because my inventory is full.


I did some quest where you're supposed to collect "Goblin Tech" for gold and I got a lot of them, and now my money is full o.o

Can't you go through a dungeon and take some damage or use magic then use up all your potions and buy more from the vendor in Nexus? That way you could use up your money and then sell your extra loot.

Well luckily there is an option to drop items. So I can just drop some stuff and buy more at stores. But maxing your Gold when only halfway through the game is so dumb. Did they test this game at all x.X

Well no because you can't buy the godly equipment with Gold... There's this other currency called Valor that you get from completing Daily and Weekly quests to get the really good equipment.

That's also the problem because after Act 3 or so, there's really no need for Gold at all other than buying more pots (Which you won't use much outside of bosses, as a Vindicator at least).

Ended up dying 3 times to this one boss just now, the actual dungeon was easy though.

So the bosses are way harder than the dungeons.

I found the demo for HOR quite underwhelming, unfortunately.

It has been on my list of games to buy since it was announced, but the demo just turned me off. this is so disappointing as it seems that it ought to be a real system seller.

If I do buy it someday, I hope my experience with the demo is inaccurate.

Did you forget about the multiplayer the game offers.


People will get the game for the multiplayer alone and the single player is the bonus.

Bad News!

Word is spreading on the Official Heroes of Ruin site that the game does not allow
multiple playthroughs of quests/bosses with the same character (a must-have feature in
any Diablo type game) and that effectively, once you've finished the game, there is nothing
to do anymore.

Heroes of Run Petition (Click Here)

A petition has been launched to persuade the developers, through a patch, to raise the absurd level cap of 30 and to allow repeated playthroughs of quests/bosses so that players can farm for
loot.

- If what's being said is true then I am massively disappointed at this unforgivable oversight. =(

I agree ): And the strangest part is that these functions would've been the easiest thing to implement..... Dungeon restarting once you leave it, adjusting levels of monsters as you enter, raising level cap even if it means no new skills after a while, looting system where people can't steal your stuff, hard mode with just more/stronger mobs...

All these would've been so easy to implement without using any new resources, just a few lines of code.


But that doesn't change the fact that at least first time through it's very enjoyable :] And there's 4 classes to do it as.

I'm at 50% of the game with no deaths as the Gunslinger in 3 hours and 40 minutes. I've been completing all side quests along the way as well as the daily challenges for Valor.

The game is great fun but it's far shorter and easier than it should have been. You don't even have to really worry about saving up money or inventory management because you can easily max out money fairly early on in the game and then just buy the best sets of armour from the vendor.

I stand by my opinion that this is a good game but unfortunately N-Space haven't quite managed to make it great. The lack of content really damages it and is startlingly apparent; the level 30 cap (And experience isn't gained particularly slowly, either) is too low, past dungeons have no replayability except for the daily challenges (Which are jokingly easy), the 20,000 different weapons is true but needs to be taken in context. For a piece of armour, there are 30 versions with slightly different stats for each level, as well as every piece of armour having a potential of approximately 10 different buffs. This means that there are actually roughly 300 pieces of the same equipment model in game, and the looting just doesn't feel as diverse as it could be. In addition, some of the top level armour and weapons seem very overpowered.

There are plenty of good things about the game though, other than the stunning absence of content in what was advertised as a very content heavy game. The gameplay is genuinely enjoyable (Albeit very easy from my experiences of both the Savage and the Gunslinger). Bosses in particular are a spectacle and are extremely engaging, but at the halfway mark I do feel that they should have poised a slightly greater challenge.

Expect 10-15 hours for an average run, about 8 if you've played dungeon crawlers before. If you're particularly interested in picking up all the legendary equipment from the vendors then this could probably be extended to about 20 hours per character, although the absurd stat gains these boost will be of no use as there seems to be no replayability past the main story. If you plan on doing a run through with all the characters then the game is worth the money as it will last 30-60 hours (Depending on how good you are at dungeon crawlers).

Aw man. This is making me sad. I was so looking forward to this game, but from what you all are saying it may not be worth it.

With the level 30 cap, is that something they could over-ride with a patch from DLC or something? (I don't know much about how games work).

Edit: From what I've seen on the HoR forum itself, a lot of people say that it can be done.
Do any of you think that a patch will happen?

Seeing as how any kind of patch will cost the developers money to
make, it largely depends on the number of players who want a patch
and are willing to let Nspace know about it through petitions etc.

Another thing that may also persuade the developers to act is negative
publicity about the games shortcomings filtering down to 3DS owners
who are still on the fence about buying the game.

To say i'm crying out for a patch to address some problems with this
game is an understatement. Ultimately I want games like HoR to
succeed as an impetus to others to develop new I.P's and to
promote different genre's/gameplay experiences on the 3DS.

Wow thanks for posting this. I had this on pre-order for a sweet $30, but now I will just cancel and save it for something else. =( Too bad though, this game looked pretty fun. But if there is really no re-play value once you beat it then its just not worth it for this type of game.

I'm still gonna try this game for myself before I condemn it as I'm gonna hate myself if I don't play it based on someone's opinion and it turns out to be a game I would have really enjoyed after all. As for replay value, I'll probably play through the game as all four characters and then set it aside. I'm not a person that's big on replaying games anyways and I especially hate beating bosses again so it's no big deal to me.

In that case I'm sure you'll enjoy the game because 90% of the complaints are about replay value (Rest is lack of polish in certain game mechanics). Playing through with all 4 classes is gonna take like 50 hours anyways.

Hi guys, thought I'd chime in here and say that this game is a bit of a let down, which is a shame as the fundamentals of this game are good.

As it is I'd give this a 6/10, could be an 8 or 9 if they corrected all the stuff wrong with it.

Here is a quick list of some of the issues

- Maximum Money - You reach max money in around 4-5 hours of gameplay, that means you cannot sell stuff so you have to drop items, or just not pick anything up at all
- There is nothing to buy in store
- Maximum Inventory - You can only keep 30 items on you, for an rpg based around loots/trading this isn't good
- Initial character customisation is basic, hairstyle, hair colour, colour skin, and colour accesories. Main customisation comes from equipping armour etc, but you have no control on looks this as you usully pick what gives you the best stats
- XP Bias/lopsided, most xp is garnered from completing missions (end stages give you 8000+ exp per mission), you get a very small amount from killing enemies (which is crazy), when you reach level 27+ you begin to only get ONE EXP per enemy killed I have resorted to just going throuhg missins not killing anything, you can get by just running away
- You can jump into a game and get exp for doing nothing, and then jump back out again
- Crashes a lot, this is evident in the demo too, but getting back in is usually quick
- Website is not working properly
- No skill to this game, it is far too easy
- Block button is redundant, no-one uses it online

I think online world should be separate to the storymode like randomised dungeons with super boss fights etc, like in other rpgs, but the online mode is just replaying the storymode chapters in a team.

There is no element of being in over your head, going into a super tough dungeon (the fun bit you get when playing super bosses in ffiv etc). Enemies seem to stop going above level 23 and everthing is far too easy

All the stuff above could be fixed, I'm wondering if they would do it though

If people want to see more of these sorts of games on the 3DS then i'd rather they still support it and purchase the game.
If daily challenges are being released for the game for up to a year then the concept of players downloading a patch to fix the problems listed by those who've finished the story isn't that farfetched.

Whatever you decide to do, at least voice your support the petition for a 'fix' 'patch' at Official Heroes of Ruin Website

Anyone here played torchlight, how does this game compare to torchlight.

I enjoy torchlight, but it fairly easy even on hard and the game is short with no mulitiplayer.

Just tried online mode for the first time and it was AWESOME. You can chat during loading screens and everything, and sound quality is good. Only bad thing is that if Host quits/dc's, everyone else does too. But that's why you don't play with noobs.

All this negativity is making the game look bad, which it isn't at all. The main quest is very entertaining and fun, enviroments are constantly changing, gameplay is great and fast paced, and online is executed flawlessly. Also IMO the graphics are nice for 3DS. Music isn't memorable but it's okay.

Replay value, low difficulty level and some wonky animations during cutscenes are really the only complaints I have. Difficulty level adjusts if you're playing Co-op though so it might be harder when online. And I personally don't buy games expecting 50+ hours of gameplay because my attention span isn't that great. xD 12 hours for single player is good enough for me (Times 4 if you want to do all classes).

I'd rate it 8.5/10. Shame though because with a few more lines of code it could've been a true Diablo clone.

I also can't play the same thing for many hours. The only long RPG games I have actually finished are KoTOR and KoTOR II. Each of those is about 50 hours if you do the side quests, which I did. So, I don't mind if a game is long or not as long as it's good.

People are complaining about the difficulty, but I heard you can manually adjust it. If that is true, nothing is stoping me from buying it.

Can't wait to play this game I hope I get to know a couple of people here and play with them since my RL friends don't have a 3DS. I was bummed when it got delayed in North America.

I am hoping this game will fill the void Diablo 3 left for me. I am staying away from that game because of the always online/RMAH.

Thats true with some people same goes for people who cuss. But me, its I'm just used to saying that way and I trained myself to not care bout how people feel when I use it like that like lots of people don't care how I feel bout cussing cuz I don't cuss just for the sake of it but only when I'm angry.

Give it a few years.

Then youll be more capable of recognizing things like parodies and satire.

It isn't 12 hours for single player though. I've reached 95% completion (A few side quests I haven't done, but have spent some time on daily challenges and completed the full story) in 6 hours and that wasn't rushing. The game is, objectively, too short. It's a hell of a lot of fun to play, and that's why people are complaining so much. It is an otherwise great game which is unfortunately ruined by the abysmal lack of content, especially for an RPG!

*shrugs* Well I've got 80% in 9:30 so far so it'll be close to 12 hours... No?

Found a cool Legendary Vindicator sword today called just "Ice". :3 Maybe it's a quest item and everyone gets it. o.o

Do any of you think that a patch will happen?
A lot of people on the HoR forum don't have any idea what can or can't be done on a technical level. Only N-Space knows, and the most they've said about it is a cryptic "We are looking into ways to address some player concerns" posted on their Facebook page.

My copy arrived yesterday and I'm loving it so far. Especially online. It's a shame about some complaints and average review scores. By the time it's released in the States quite a few people will have been turned off by this and won't purchase the game. I think you should definitely try it for yourself once it's released over there. Hopefully an update will iron out some issues too.

My mates have the game, and some of them have only just completed the game, after about 12-13 hours of gameplay.

Flub, I have no idea how you managed to do it in 6.

You register at Heroesofruin.com, hit the link to account button and it comes up with a QR code. HOWEVER it took a while for the digits under the QR code to come up to get it to work.

I tried using that QR Code before and it didn't work. I just have to wait for it to load?

Done multiple times. No results. ARRRRGGGGGHHHH

But what I've noticed is that I'm getting the daily challenges, the first ones. Hmmmmm.

Anyways, been playing a bit and I finished the second dungeon. Good fun so far and I'm sure it'll be a blast once I start playing multiplayer. Too bad you can't replay dungeons on your own.

Going to relate an experience in the dungeon:

Spoiler!

I've replayed a few dungeons in multiplayer, just because they're so much fun. You can replay them as another class too, but you really should be able to replay them as many times as you like.

Guys I know I'm late but North America is getting the Heroes of Ruin demo next week, and we can play online multiplayer on the DEMO? (Courtesy of Nintendolife)

This is the best demo I've heard of so far!

When the game comes out, there should be a thread for clan recruiting, since my family and friends are not getting it for a little while... Also is there going to be DLC for this game, it makes more than enough sense for a more online game like this.

This game reminds me of Age of Empire's without right clicking on the mouse too control and command your army. And is darker.

Played the demo for about an hour. It was a nice change of genre for me. I like the skills and fighting. Customization...........it um.......yeah I'll leave my thoughts to myself

Online works pretty good i guess. The first time I went online the game shut down for some reason. When I actually went into a match my teammates were a bunch of idiots and ran around in circles hitting air.....looked like bad AI....I didn't even get to finish the quest. This would be a nice game to play with friends, but what I'm hearing about the 6 hours of playtime just sucks and I don't think I'm gonna pick this up.

Loved the Demo, graphics ok good, nice efects (shadow, glow, explosions) . Nice animated elements in scenario like plants, candles etc.

Sound ok, but good music.

Gameplay very good, very easy to equip, sell, drink potions.

Remember me Torchlight, but better.

I played the demo. I enjoyed it for the most part. One thing that irritated me was the blocking animation. More accurately, the lack thereof. I realize it should be quick, but that shouldn't be that clunky. I wouldn't say that I wouldn't get it because of that. The game was fun, but I doubt I will pick it up as I am sans internet right now and that seems to be the major draw. Maybe later if the price drops.

This seemed to be a really ambitious title. Even with the delays it seemed to lack polish, IMO. I guess some of that can be due to the demo not containing all the features.

That said, I'll be picking this up as I've had it pre-ordered for some time. Overall it still seems like a pretty good game and should be fun. I guess it's the first game in a wave of upcoming releases that I'm really excited about (KH3D, SMB2, Castlevania LOS, just to name a few)

Perhaps they were color blind and didn't know they were hitting the air? Maybe they were trying to hit you cuz they thought you were the bad guy.

I've been hearing really bad things about this game from even the people who loved the game at launch and followed it before launch.

The things I'm hearing:

-Even though the game is 6-8 hours per character and is pretty fun for most of it, the last two hours are so full of glitches that you will begin to hate it and not even want to play it again with the other characters

-The game is WAY too easy and there is only one difficulty

-Money cap is 99,999. It takes no effort to make, and since that's the cap, nothing costs more than that.

-Not really anything to do after you beat the game unless you have friends or want to play as another character. Not really any replayability.

-same exact game for each character

-streetpass is a bit buggy

I can't remember anything else off the top of my head, but based on all these things I've been reading, I decided it would be best for me to hold off and just get the game when it drops in price or is in a bargain bin or something. So I cancelled my preorder and got Theatrhythm Final Fantasy, which I have heard is a really good and addicting game.

Yeah ive had my preorder paid off for who knows how long. Back when it was first announced. It sounded purely amazing, but I am disappointed with everything I've been hearing. It's a shame too, I was really looking forward to getting into the dungeon crawler genre without having to play it on my computer.

Touchlight make a big sucess in PC and have a lot of bugs. We can survive. This game is a big moment for us, lovers of Diablo Clones. And it is portable. The eShop Demo reinforce my decision to buy Heroes of Ruin.

The only reason to get a game you know has bugs in it is that the rest of the game makes you ignore them. I did enjoy the demo, but from what I've heard from others who have played it, there are too many other issues to warrant a full price purchase. I don't want to vuy a game for a system just because it's the only one of it's kind on that system. There are just too many issues. I will be passing on this. I had high hopes and since I don't have Kid Icarus and The Last Story is coming out soon, I will save my money for those.

From the beginning when I saw that N-Space was developing HoR, I told you guys that the game was going to be mediocre in many ways. It was born in a marketing room, in which, they decided to create a game in a popular genre that has yet to reach the 3DS market and pack it with features that hide the fact that it's a crappy game...

Anyway, the game has entered the pre-order charts for the US (Theatrhythmn didn't and debuted at 33k) so I'm definitely interested in how this experimental game performs (bombed in EU). I won't be picking it up myself, but its performance will determine whether a sequel could happen or other developers try these types of experiments with other genres (hopefully those games will be of better quality).

I was hoping that it would be better. I've never played any Diablo-esque dungeon crawlers before and I enjoyed the concept. (Does X-Men Legends count?) There were things that bugged me about the demo, but I did think it was fun. It was probably novelty of a genre I didn't have experience in.

Hopefully, someone will take this as a springboard and create a dungeon crawler that is a better investment.

I played the demo and was bored instantly. Is this game worth it?

It seems like the frames drop rapidly in this game.

A lot of people like the demo, and I've heard the first several hours for each character are really fun, but the last couple are extremely glitchy, you max out characters before even beating the game, the game is insanely easy without any difficulty levels, money cap is 99,999 and is really easy to get so there really is no items to save up for, and once you beat the game unless you have friends to play with there really isn't much to do.

Based on all of that I've heard, I figured it would be best to wait until a price drop. So I cancelled my preorder.

I picked mine up earlier, but haven't had a chance to play it yet I'm not as hyped about it as I once was, but I still think I'll really enjoy the game since it's in one of my favorite genre's.

I did set up a character and noticed when agreeing to all the features that there will be daily quests through Spotpass. The game was very very ambitious. Hopefully it sells enough to warrant a sequel that can get the proper development and resources to accomplish what this game sat out to accomplish...

I have played it for about 3 hour as the Alchitect and I really enjoy it, and I haven't started playing online yet but so far I am enjoying it immensely, almost the best $40 I have ever spent.

I'm at 3:08 with 25% with my Gunslinger so I'm guessing the campaign will be a little over 12 hours for me. Plus I also plan on trying out all the other classes. You can finish it in 6 hours or so but you'd have to speed run through the whole thing and that's no fun.

Consider yourself added, mine is in my signature too.

The Gunslinger seems to be one pretty awesome character, I'm loving all of his passive skills.

he's powerful and looks to have a good defense .. however, I can't compare him to other characters at this moment ... he's the type of guy that has to get right in there when fighting a boss..

Didn't have a chance to start this until Wedesnday night since I was finishing up Golden Sun. Really liking this game so far!

I've found a few, very minor little quirks, but it's been great so far. I also like the fact that there are daily/weekly challenge distractions to extend the longevity of the game. That's good since I'll probably be playing this past the KHDD release to save that one for my 3DS XL!

Well, I originally cancelled my preorder and used the money to get Theatrhythm Final Fantasy, but from what I've heard, the NA version of Heroes of Ruin must have fixed the glitches that I was reading about in the EU version.

So I picked HoR from Walmart yesterday. I'm quite enjoying it. Not very far, been busy doing the daily/weekly quests.

Hey guys, in the demo I beat the boss without having a chance to complete my other quests. Is the full game like that?

No its not. In the demo, it ends as soon as you beat the boss. In the actual game, once you beat the boss, you have to go to a waypoint to exit the dungeon, so you can finish all the other sidequests.

over the past couple days I have been exploring the characters .. I have completed the first act with each of them so I could have a fair basis for determining who might be a good character for me.

~I originally started with the SAVAGE since he was not available during the demo and he has turned out to be a very powerful force with a solid defense. the trouble is that he has no real decent long range attacks

~The ALCHITECT was my second choice since she was also previously unavailable : to use this person you have to focus on magic use as the weapons available are not very high in attack power. best to improve the vigor and soul with her.

~The GUNSLINGER is great for long distance and packs pretty decent strength. I would say the most average character though. his passive abilities are awesome

~VINDICATOR has good power ups and buffs. not quite the rival in strength of the savage or the magic of the alchitect but a good mix of the two (minus the long range)


no character is better than another and you will find the one that suits you best but if you are just starting this could provide you with a little more knowledge of where you might be at level 10-15

I do not feel like getting the game right now... I am just waiting for more people I know to get the game. I will buy KH then after that I might consider getting HoR again (if I do not drain my wallet from mario bros and other nintendo stuff by then)

Nope. The daily/weekly quests automatically show up in your quest log as long as you are connected to the internet.

Anyways,

I'm at about 10 hours through the game on my Vindicator, and I believe I've just started the final quest. I have more than the "6 hours" people claim the game to be because I don't rush through, I clear the entire map whenever I play a level, I do every side quest, and I do as many daily/weekly quests as I can.

This is my first play through. Debating on if I want to play through as the other characters right away or not.

But overall, my goal is to get every character to lvl 30 and beat the game with all of them, and get them the best armor(which seems like the best armor is the armor you buy with reward points, which are given for doing weekly/daily quests).

So even after I beat the game and get all the characters to lvl 30, the daily and weekly quests will give me a lot to do.

Added after 11 minutes:

I originally posted this after cancelling my preorder and this is my list of things I have heard that originally made me cancel my preorder. But after playing the game, I will go ahead and debunk/support these claims.

The things I'm hearing:

-Even though the game is 6-8 hours per character and is pretty fun for most of it, the last two hours are so full of glitches that you will begin to hate it and not even want to play it again with the other characters - 9-10 hours if you don't rush through and you do all the side quests and also clear the maps and do web quests. I haven't encountered a single glitch. The people saying this were playing the EU version, so it was possibly fixed in the US version.

-The game is WAY too easy and there is only one difficultyI didn't think it was too easy. Thought it was moderate. The puzzles, bosses, and rare monsters provide a small challenge.

-Money cap is 99,999. It takes no effort to make, and since that's the cap, nothing costs more than that. - Agreed, would be nice to have a cap of at least 999,999

-Not really anything to do after you beat the game unless you have friends or want to play as another character. Not really any replayability. - Weekly and daily quests can be kinda fun, and they are the only way to get the absorbing weapons/armor that heals you for every enemy you kill, and are some of the best armor I have seen. Will take quite a while to get all of it, but other than collecting those, it doesn't seem like there will be too much to do.

-same exact game for each character - Same story and sidequests, but at least the dungeons are randomly generated, and are thus somewhat fresh and don't get as boring

-streetpass is a bit buggyhaven't tried it yet

I can't remember anything else off the top of my head, but based on all these things I've been reading, I decided it would be best for me to hold off and just get the game when it drops in price or is in a bargain bin or something. So I cancelled my preorder and got Theatrhythm Final Fantasy, which I have heard is a really good and addicting game.
Overall, I wish I wouldn't have cancelled my preorder, but at the same time, if I would have kept it, I wouldn't have gotten TFF, which is also a very good game. I'd say HoR is a really good game. The story gets a little interesting at the end. It's a keeper in my book, or at least until I have done enough weekly and daily quests to get the best armor for everyone, which will take a long time.
