    Apparently there is an option to change the combat style to a semi turn based style combat to provide a slightly "old-school" feel.
    Regardless..give me more Aerith =)

    Going on most games at EGX (big ones), they usually allow a play time of 10-15 minutes per person due to the volume of people they have to get through.

    Seen some games before with 3 hour queues.

    Got early entry so will be heading to the PlayStation stand straight away.

    Did anyone get to play this? I had early access and was there before doors opened but it was like everyone went straight to it! The queue was huge. My mate isn’t a FF fan so I felt bad making him wait for a hour or more so I get a 15 min demo! It looks amazing

    I did get a photo with the buster sword tho!

    You could book a slot on the Playstation experience app, so we did that for 11.15am and only had to wait 2 mins :D In terms of the demo, the gfx and voice acting is absolutely amazing. Game play will be good, but it's going to take some time to get used to the combat itself. I am hoping for good things with classic mode as I will probably venture down that route. Funniest part in the demo was when Barret randomly decided to sing the theme when you win a battle, had me in stitches.

    Another opportunity is at MCMComiccon which is again at Excel arena if anyone is interested in trying to play the demo.

    Oh no you are joking? you could book slots?!? I'm actually gutted!

    Im glad to hear its getting positive reviews and i think classic mode will appeal to me more as well from what ive seen. Haha cant wait to see the Barret moment.

    Has anyone spoken about how this FF will work 'cross-generation'?

    We have so many AAA games upcoming this year, but this one in particular makes me wonder how Sony will manage save games across multiple console generations? Will I be able to play the first installment on my PS4, then continue the second on my PS5? Surely this will need to be a thing?

    Microsoft do cloud saving for free which is a huge bonus if you ask me. Sony will probably expect you to purchase PS+.
