Any words on how much/how well this has been selling by the way?

A new event featuring a Turks-R bike. Not entirely sure if Reno is a support character, but I know I've never seen that model of him before (different than the Crisis Core model, but possibly just slightly altered).

i took a bunch of pictures

here's reno's smarmy face





enemy info image for reno



rude sorta makes an appearance as a helicopter




reno's pyramid, which stops you from using materia



when you do your limit break reno ends up holding onto his bike flailing around in the air




from reno's limit break




the prizes for these missions include 'study of planetary life data' which will give you various rewards depending on how much you collect during this event



this is tifa punching reno



if you get his hp down to 0 without using a limit break you knock him off his bike



the shinra turks-r bike, which has the extra ability of destroying barricades



look at that fucking face




this event is a lot more nicely designed than the ifrit one. there's 4 levels to it again, but the costs are a bit nicer (the extreme one is still 100 gs though). plus the rewards are a lot better than the previous two events. with bahamut and ifrit you had to beat the missions 5 times to unlock the next reward on every level. but this time, the higher levels need you to beat them a smaller number of times. with the extreme one, you get a reward each time you beat it.

you are also given the shinra turks-r bike for beating the low level mission the first time, instead of having to make it. it also doesn't need any special materials to upgrade (you can get them from regular missions), so unlike this flametongue sword which i cannot upgrade anymore now unless they add garnet and flame spheres to the prizes of other missions i could upgrade this bike even after the event is over.

they added a new element to this one where you collect items and get rewards based on how many you get. it's kind of like the collection events they do with ff record keeper. apparently if you get 250 of these data disks you get another copy of the bike, and at about 800 you get the bike and enough materials to max it out completely plus some level 2 materia. i think the rewards for all the levels get you about 700 disks, so you would have to get about 100 from the roulettes (there's only one disk on the beginner roulette, 2 on the intermediate and 3 on the advanced one, but every item on the extreme one is a disk and it adds more if you get the bonus rewards from your mission score).

so overall i think they've done a better job with this one. the extreme one is tricky without being as utterly cheap as the ifrit one (seriously, even with a maxed out bahamut bike one hit of its limit break took all your life, and that was the bike they suggested you use. it was like they just wanted you to use the continue option and thus buy a load of gems.), though the others are kind of easy but that might be because i have good equipment.


they updated to 1.4 recently which added three more chapters, a new course (cosmo canyon, which is where the reno battle takes place too), new enemies, and i think another weapon (rune blade). but it's a bit disappointing that the bosses for these chapters are just recycled ones from the midgar missions (risky bomb, general tank, and shinra bike guy whose name i forgot). at least one new boss would have been nice

I think when we get a release/ release date for NA/EU we should collate all of Hito's stuff into a nice long newspost/ review thing.

Ugh I've been trying various methods (proxies, VPNs, direct APK downloads, etc) to bypass the country restriction of the Google Play Store... but so far nothing is working.

Hahaha! Take that you damned region restrictions!



(SPOILER)









I had to use a combination of methods (note your phone needs to be rooted and you need to give SuperUser access to Market Unlocker).

Part A
  • Install TunnelBear.
  • Activate TunnelBear VPN (set to Japan).
  • Make a new Google account via your phone's settings (with TunnelBear still running and set to Japan). Deselect all syncing options and skip a Google+ account (Though this is a personal preference. You should note logging in via your main G+ account isn't possible and will fail the license check).

Part B
  • Download and install Market Unlocker (safe download, same apk I used)
  • Find an "elite" Japanese IP proxy
  • Enter the address and port number into Market Unlocker, and enable the proxy.
  • Go to your settings, head to apps and go to "all" and find the Google Play Store app, clear data and cache.
  • Log into Play Store with new account (while running both TunnelBear and Market Unlocker).
  • Language should be displayed as Japanese, if it's not then something isn't configured correctly.
  • Search for the game and download (download may take a while, speed depends upon the proxy).

Alternatively, you could try downloading the G-Bike APK (Ver 1.0.5) I copied from my phone's app directory (since it's not from a random apk offering website, it's 100% safe), and installing it (make sure to go to your settings and allow installs from unknown sources, check Google if you're unsure of how to do this on your device).

I'm still able to run the game fully (at least the 1st mission, I've only just started) with both TB and MU disabled and the phone rebooted. As for the Google JP account created, I removed it from the phone, but I would think that when a future update comes, the same methods would have to be implemented (minus creating a new account) to install any/all updates to the app. So as long as you've saved the information, you should be able to add the Google JP account back to the phone as needed.
