This along with Drinky's recent thread has made me a lot more interested in Blue Dragon. This download could fix one of the major complaints about the game.

Zellers recently had this on sale for $39, so that might be a sign that other retailers will price drop or put this game on sale in the near future too.

So this is available on in the US marketplace now, then? People were creating HK accounts to get it before.

Serious question, is there a way you can start the game on hard mode from the beginning?

I am interested in this game (even though I didn't like the demo), but I don't like games that are too easy.

Anyways, everyone who complained about the difficulty in Blue Dragon should download this. It really ramps up the difficulty to the point that you actually have to think when entering casual battles. Almost a completely different experience.

Hard mode should have been there.

but new game plus is better as a DLC.

Actually I disagree. I find most standard modern RPGs relatively easy, especially those with Turn Based Battles. The hard mode can actually be pretty tough as even the normal enemies can wipe out your party pretty easily.

This is something many modern TB games are lacking and that's why grinding can be such a bore. If you take away the challenge you take away part of the fun. With this patch I actually feel like my characters are getting stronger with each battle rather than them being superhuman from the outset.

Nope. I don't.
I'll buy one eventually, just don't want to deal with RROD.

However I'm really pumped for Lost Oddessy!

Ummm...they FINALLY release this, 1 month after the game launches??

Given the 9+ month localization phase, they forget something that obviously should've been included on the retail disc? And then do no even release it as DLC until a full month after release...on a first party title??

New game+ should have been on the disc?

The Japanese version didn't have Hard mode unlocked from the beginning, so why should the US version be different?

Well, isn't it made, technically, for people who've finished the game, even though we hardcore players would've started on it. Was it available Day 1 in JPN?

Um....back on topic....does the harder difficulty just multiply the enemy levels and stats? I'd like to see some JRPG downloadable content that adds some additional optional bosses or something, which might give someone more motivation to pick up the game again after they've beaten it.

So this is good for a replay then only? Any more details on this - do you get extra items, skills? I have not played the game, but I am interested, and this certainly helps.

I remember how the first enemy you encountered in Baldur's Gate was a wolf that could rip you to pieces if you weren't the right class or didn't plan the fight accordingly. On standard difficulty. Good times.
