Holly shii that's effing awesome.

CloudsEnd3359d ago (Edited 3359d ago )

Wow, finally, Square Enix made a good Next Gen Game...

Im not really suprised, because in those they released there needed to be atleast one that is good.

I hope the Xbox Support isnt going all crazy like now because its their timed exclusive. :3

B-Rein3359d ago

im jus gonna waut for the ps3 version of this game

Rock Bottom3359d ago

I just want to point out something, Famitsu is a sucker for SE games, If I remember correctly they gave FFVII:Crisis Core for the PSP a 39/40, while it got an average of 80 something from other reviews, if they think this game isn't better than FFVII:CC then i think we're in for a big disappointment.

B-Rein3359d ago

hey isnt this a multiplat game??? if it is whens the ps3 version out??? any 1 know :p

Rock Bottom3359d ago (Edited 3359d ago )

XD, we really can't trust Famitsu with SE games reviews anymore.

Guess Valkyria Chronicles is still the best JRPG this generation.

jspc19893359d ago

how in the world is 7/10 a flop??

7/10 means a pretty good game. anything below 5 is a flop as thats the half way point. Games dont need to be over the 8/10 mark to be considered good - well thats at least how it should work.

Whats the point in having reviews if anything under a 9 doesnt even get the time of day - ull miss out on alot of good games that way.

InMyOpinion3359d ago

360 exclusive. As is Star Ocean 4.

B-Rein3359d ago

@jenzo

but most sites are claming its multiplat and xbox 360 Timed exclusive, but thanks for you effort :D

i would buy it on the 360 but for sum reason all games run abit
unstable on my 360 and it comes up a bit messed up on my hd tv with a component cable , i prefer the buy my games on ps3 cus i have hdmi on it and it appears much clear and crisp on my ps3

InMyOpinion3359d ago (Edited 3359d ago )

My mistake, I remember I've read that Infinite Undiscovery is a timed exclusive. Star Ocean probably is too.

If that's the case you should stick to buying the PS3 versions. The multiplat versions are getting better and better now that many developers are using the PS3 as the lead platform.

kevnb3359d ago (Edited 3359d ago )

Ill probably be playing White Knight Chronicles and have finished Valkyria Chronicles a few times.

Odion3359d ago

Infinate Undiscovery is owned by MS

Homicide3359d ago

Haze got the same score as The Orange Box in Famitsu. Don't trust these guys.

Danja3359d ago

I swear ne time im having a bad day I just comeon N4G nd read the comments and im sure as hell gonna start laughing,,,

LR isn't a 360 exclusive everyone knows this...I think SE is having probs with the UT3 engine...but who cares....wasn't really interested in this game to begin with , bring on WKC...

JRPG's this gen has been a big let down compared to back in the "SNES ,PS1 ,PS2" days I also prefered when Square Enix was Square Soft they made better quality games...but w/e...Level 5 and Atlus FTW..!!

cherrypie3359d ago

"SE finally released a good JRPG"
"JRPGs have been a big let down this gen"

That's 100% cry-baby garbage. The fact is that the PS3 hasnt had any JRPGs of note, as a result, you people are attacking the entire genre now!

"no good PS3 JRPGs" does not mean "No good JRPGs this gen"

You guys are ridiculous.

Want to play some great RPGs? BUY AN XBOX 360.

Socom3359d ago (Edited 3359d ago )

First of all, Last Remnant is not an exclusive game so all these 360 fanboys suddenly bragging...wtf lmao. Desperate times call for desperate cheering?

Second of all, this game is a flop like Infinite Floppery. You dont need reviews to tell you that. Anyone who closes his eyes and start to clear his mind and mediate for 2 minutes, can tell you that this game sucks.

The 2 minute mediation is to clear your damn mind of any fanboyism. After your head is fking clear, you look at the game in an objective point of view. And yup, game is looking fking AVERAGE by all means.

Luckily if thats too hard for you, weak fools, there are still reviews that says that the game is a flop.

Reviews like OXM. You know, OFFICIAL XBOX MAGAZINE...hahaha.

Even OXM said so. No fking denying there. And trust me, IGN will rate this game poorly as well as the other sites. Because the game is stinking subpar and mediocre. And its Unreal engine for RPG. Need I say more? Gorgeous upclose moments but disgusting textures and draw distances? IN AN RPG, ARE THEY FKING KIDDIN ME. What, you dont want to see that mountain in the far distance????

The Last Remnant looks amazingly mediocre. I think everyone has forgotten the amazing RPGs on the PS1 and PS2.

Lord Xire3359d ago

I actually look forward to The Last Remnant.

I've beaten every JRPG on the 360 and completed them to the fullest including side missions, last weapons, item searching and what not.

I love JRPG's and The Last Remnant looks like it will top Tales of Vesperia which is my fav JRPG on the 360 atm.

Kain813359d ago

i have seen some vids on Gametrailers.com and i must say it is not worth the money.

YouNoob3359d ago

he has seen some videos on the net and can judge how good it is. amazing skill. maybe he should become a reviewer.

and now look at my avatar. exactly. NOOB!

Kain813359d ago

and come here tell me that.
The battlesystem is confusing, the textures are not good, and everywere pop ups, and many slowdowns here and there.

you are the NOOB, you freak of nature

WIIIS13359d ago

The grapes... they taste so sour.

INehalemEXI3359d ago (Edited 3359d ago )

I was playing ff8 last weekend , I still have not finished FF12 or LO but FF8 was calling me back for a replay. It is true that these next gen rpg's have been pretty meh so far. Im thinking Star Ocean IV, FF13, and WKC will deliver but who knows. FF8 graphics soooo outdated but the story and gameplay make it worthy even today. Looking forward to Monster Hunter 3 too.

PS360WII3359d ago

Actually I think more people have forgotten the pure gold RPGs of the SNES generation but hey who's counting.

Last Remnant while it won't be perfect is still going to be fun as heck to play. Don't hate a video game because one version of it has been delayed ><

PopEmUp3359d ago

"and now look at my avatar"

so you telling to people that you're a noob, well get you

Cheeseknight283359d ago

"The Last Remnant looks amazingly mediocre. I think everyone has forgotten the amazing RPGs on the PS1 and PS2. "

Care to explain to me what RPGs on the PS1 and PS2 have to do with the current generation?

How is that possibly even relevant?

The Lazy One3359d ago

If you watch gameplay videos of FFVII or FFVIII, the gameplay looks downright horrible. Hell, if you play any less than the first 45 minutes of the game, the gameplay is pretty bad. JRPGs don't translate well to gameplay videos.

Socom3359d ago

Feel sorry for any fanboys who cannot play Valkyria Chronicles and White Knight chronicles.

True RPG epicness cannot be found anywhere else but on PS3, people.

Valkyria > any rpg wanna be game.
BEST RPG OF THIS GEN CURRENTLY ___WITHOUT ANY DOUBT___

Cheeseknight283358d ago

Maybe you should have played Fallout 3, Lost Odyssey, Tales of Vesperia, Disgaea 3 or Fable 2 before you let your ridiculously single-minded opinion pollute this site.

MvmntInGrn3359d ago

WTF? Didn't expect this, looks pretty bad in comparison to some other RPGs we saw on PS2.

I guess Japan will always have that soft spot for JRPGs. Looks like a 7.5-8 game at most to me. Hopefully I'm wrong, I have been in a JRPG mood lately.

Ap3theBad3359d ago

how much longer in gap untill the ps3 version come out?

WIIIS13359d ago

Could be a year or more, look at Eternal Sonata and Bioshock. I guess you can wait that out. White Knight Chronicles should be a decent filler while you're waiting for the main event.

MvmntInGrn3359d ago

Last Remnant is hardly a main event.

Menchi3359d ago

It's not Timed Exclusive, there's a month or two delay because of SE having issues with Unreal Engine and the PS3. They've never made use of it on the console before, as opposed to their experience with 360 and the engine.

It should be around in roughly 2~3 months at most.

WIIIS13359d ago

What about Socom? The score is pretty consistent with all other reviews it has received.

pumpkinpunker3359d ago

In other news, this will sell lots of 360s in Japan.

3359d ago
SlippyMadFrog3359d ago

I think someone forgot to tell tortella (Nasim) that LR is multiplat.

Ren3359d ago

I thought Nasim was a 360 fanboy?
