I myself am gonna laugh about it tonight. Maybe there are still parts SE did not yet spoil in magazines, trailers or whereever, who knows?
Priority: Checking the Camera/Targeting improvements they promised
Yes, the download is quite large. It's 2 UMDs, what did you expect? They've filled the discs with a hell lot of video sequences after all.
No mirrors aside from UL.to and Torrent unless requested by a few people.
Ah, yes, the god-damn Opening is even longer now. I hope you got a good book at hand, you won't get to actually play for about 15 minutes, judging from the demo and the longer opening.
PS: Don't worry so much about all the different characters! At least one of them seems to die early enough for Square Enix to not mind putting her onto magazine covers!
Dunno if this control scheme plan is still valid, but heck, I don't care enough to check first, maybe it helps anyway.
