1UP wrights: Level-5's PS3 RPG hit Japan today, and we've got brand new videos for you!
Looks quite promising indeed.
Yeah! it reminds me of alll those great RPG's on PSX & PS2. Only with much better graphics.Which is a good thing in my opinion,since i absolutely loved those old RPG's. The combat system looks fun too.I'm guessing that circle will fill up faster if you invest in Agility or something.Hopefully.
if i understood Japanese i would have imported this already *sigh*
I know Meep..me too..I was seriously considering it.But a game like this,you need to know whats going on. :( But i'm deffinetley importing Yakuza 3 tho :)
I agree I would def import this game but I dont understand japanese , but im sure this game will be out by spring 2009 in NA.. as for Yakuza 3 I hope Sega brings this tot he states b4 fall 2009 .
I too have been fighting the urge to import this game. The ONLY thing holding me back is the fact that I'll regret it once it hits the U.S. However, if this was a game I was sure wasn't coming to other countries, THEN I'd import it
Im to broke atm to be importing it though or I would, same with Dissidia. Must have it ASAP when it comes to US.
Any review scores for this game yet?
bubbles for all above me
i like games like that. Level5 did a great JOB. 1.day purchase for sure
wtf is this a ps2 game
No,infinite undiscovery,last remnant,blue dragon,viva piniata etc,etc. Those are PS2 quality games.
& Fable 2...
Think i will wait for the HD vids before passing judgement
canadian, you can add too human to that list aswell
I know,i know..there's just so many graphical flops on 360.. It's hard to name them all !
I actually prefer to play FF12, Persona 3 FES and 4, etc then any of the next gen jrpg's that have come out thus far. WKC on the other hand is the first exciting next gen Jrpg that and SO4. VC is not my kind of game but I might give it a chance down the road. ToV did not look to bad.
Great combat, most innovative I've seen in a long time. I love how you do one slash and have to wait 5-10 seconds before you can do the next. It's a very complex game afterall where only 1 button is required. It never gets generic hitting the same button over again every 5 seconds. It'll please both the hardcore gamers who like to strategize by giving them the best option available, that being the one button combo and the hack and slash player who likes button mashing the same button over and over. Obviously Famitsu was dead wrong in giving this game 29/40. The horror! In fact this is probably the best RPG ever made! Furthermore, I'm sure this game will sell just as well as the best-selling Valkyria chronicles.
Actually Lord of balrogs.You couldn't be more wrong. It's not a button masher.You don't hit the same button over and over again The combat is based off of combo's you pre-determine seconds before the fight and/or during the fight itself.It's all real time. As the circle spins you have to hit certain buttons at certain times to complete the combo and pull of acrobatic/magic/badass moves. I applaud your use of sarcastic humor. But it would be more funny if you knew what the f*ck you were talking about. Comparing this to valkryia chronicles? oh yeah..who will sell better..Sega..or a famous Japanese RPG developer like Level-5... Common sense isn't your fortay i presume? Oh,and Merry christmas :)
i hope we get this game here sometimes in april 09
looks good....glad this isnt on my xbox
That way ------------------>
he changed his comment
I like the look of this, Hopefully though it isn't political in it's story like FF12
Yeah... that's prolly the only thing I want to know. FFXII for me was a good game with a very stupid story.
Aside from Balthier, FFXII stunk. I had trouble enjoying any conversation...not just for dialogue, but because I didn't care for anyone.
the story was dry and the characters were boring and dry. I'm sure this game will be pretty good. I really hyope the story is as good as rouge galaxy.
I mean yeah Sevir they were dry. But I don't think that was the issue in terms of ff12's story. The problem was for ff12 is that the usual "ff love story" was non existent. Final Fantasy games thrive off the theme of love in some shape or form. The lack of a love story showed you how much the writers off the ff games need to work on their character development and story. See, love stories are the easiest to write. Even a novice can do it. Real skill comes from those than can write a story WITHOUT always needing "love" in it. However, I myself still love the game. And despite the disagrees I'm going to get, I think the battle system was great and it was a needed change. Turn based is good in all. But you can only advance so far in terms of gameplay if rpgs are kept turn based.
regardless of the Story, the politics of 12 was just way to dry to get involved. i found my self falling aleep through out the game. I'm surprised i stuck with it long enough to finish it. The story was just subpar and i hated it for that reason. and the characters just seemed top lack life. that to me was worse than FF8 in my humble opinion. Yeah it takes skill writing a story without love in it, but it also takes greater skill to write a story people will enjoy. and to me the writers and storyboard designers for FF12 sucked. FF tactics was based in the ivalice world and it did a better job and i enjoyed that game much more than 12... I'm sorry but FF12 was boring for me. I didn't like it at all. I cant believe i enjoyed a lesser RPG like eternal Sonata alot more than a main series FF game, and thats a shame. I'm a fan of the series though and i'll snap up all the main series FF and stick through the game just so i can m ake a judgement on it after beating it. i hope the same isn't true of WKC because i hope it isn't very political, or if it is, they better make me care about the story and the characters, to me the best RPG of all time for me, Is FF9... 7, 10 and even 10-2 to a degree was nice. and i also like 5 and 6 and tactics were good too but FF9 was best, i cared most for that cast of characters than anything else. and the story was compelling, every character had something that made you, like them. that wasn't present for me in FF12.
I finally someone agrees that FF9 is the best game in the Franchise. bubbles
FF6 was the best for me..u guys need to play that game download Epsxe (Psx emulator) and play it on your PC or psp whatever just dont miss it
The game looks great. Cannot wait for this to come to the states.
lol i just seen the character creation video. Wth was that guy thinking? lol Anyways..it looks pretty customizable.Good enough for me! I like how you can have one player created character to join you through the entire story line.
ps2 thats all im sayin but then again, i know i know graphics aint everything
"graphics aint everyting" Is that what you tell yourself when you watch people playing Uncharted or videos of Killzone 2? Because you wont be playing them?
We can only hope that the end of what you have to say...doubt it tho
Funny, because the graphics are far superior then Fable 2's...
considering the scale of this game the graphics look pretty good plus Level 5 was never known for pushing Hardware but they do deliever on a freakin awesome gaming experience.. this btw looks better than ne JRPG to have grace the 360 yet
It's weird how all the negative comments are from M$ fanboys... well, nothing new then
You know what I find so ridiculously amazing about 360 fans? A majority of those fans care more about sales than the game itself. I also notice that instead of playing the games for themselves, they depend heavily on the scores. I cannot believe that you would judge the game the way you're judging it when you haven't even played it to begin with. 360 fans wouldn't like if someone judged their games without playing it and yet they do the same thing with PS3 games. Grow a backbone.
its 'sells' not 'sales' Its a great game to play, you played 'sells' b4??;)
:x Typo of doom? Thanks though.
Yeah I have to agree with ThatCanadianguy. Last Remnant is a ps2 quality game. Thats why ps3 cant run it BAHAHAHAHAHHA. Seriously tough when are SE releasing the ps3 version? Havent they figured out that piece of sh*t called cell yet? When is ps3 gonna get any ps2 quality games anyway? 360 has dozen of em even the wii is pushing out decent games. smh ps3
Cry On, ops my bad... "Havent they figured out that piece of sh*t called cell yet?" Thanks to the revolutionary Cell Processor we have seen great looking next gen games like Killzone 2, Heavy Rain, Uncharted 2, Versus,... Go away before you end up like PP.
Please just shut up...
Your comment is embarrassing...
''Versus'' Cry on indeed. What happened to the real XIII? You know, the one that cant turn into another awsome Dirge of Cerberus like FF spinoff? LOL I cant believe Sfags embraced a FF spinoff and dumped the main game right after MS decided to have FF. The shock must have caused a rash retarded and desperate decision. PSP is one of my favorite systems ever. Im not broken enough to hate a product just because it sports the name of a company that I dont like like you weird people (ps3tards). CC was decent. The combat was to simple and the roulette thing was just embarrassingly bad. Far cry from the main games ''Still looking for games to play on 2009? eh travesty...'' I was planning to dust off my ps3 for 09 but than i just read about the laughable GT5 delay to 2010 or beyond, laughed my ass off and hugged my 360
PS3 owners are getting both FF games anyway... Too bad you can't say the same. =0 BTW the PSP is getting the other 2 and considering you hate Sony so much you should be very desperate knowing that every FF game from spin-off to main series is still on Sony's consoles exclusively!LOL =) Still looking for games to play on 2009? eh travesty...
Trolls... Fanboys... Droids... Bots... My brothers... Please don't flame on Christmas! What would Santa think? :(
That we are hard-core gamer!
That 360 fanboys deserve coals in their stockings.
this is more like ffxi than ffxii. with a mix of eqoa. _____ as for better graphics than fable 2 i wouldn't go that far. i just personally dont like the fable art style. it reminds me of the original "Lord of the Rings" anime from the 70's.
Game is on a bigger scale than Fable also has anyone in the West actually seen thr game actually running with there own eyws? Doubt it so pass judgement on how it looks when that happens
How seamless the battles are? This game is smooth as hell! It looks like they might have advanced FF12's battle system (which btw FF12 battle system is great in my opinion) They just need to get this out of Japan ASAP!! Oh yeah, and HAPPY HOLIDAYS ALL. ( can't believe I had to edit just now to include that lol)
yes I have noticed how seamless the battles are , and I also agree that FF12 battle system was great that was the saving grace for that game IMO. Im thinking Sony will get this game out in NA/EU in Spring 09 and Merry Christmas to everyone also XD
Of those good times I had in FFXI. Gonna get this game for sure.
Looks like Famitsu were dead on when they scored it 29/40.
Have you played it? Yes or no. A disagree. Nice...because I love how that button is abused these days without a comment.
Looks like Jenzo couldn't resist the urge to troll PS3 articles since there really isn't any news in the 360 section once again.
They gave last remnant that close to perfect score too? They gave that a 38/40 last I remember. But just about everyone else talk about how mediocre and/or weak the game was. See where I'm going with that?
what about when Fami gave 11/40 on Mass Effect?
Mass Effect got that low score from them, yet all the other media around the world gave it such High scores. Last remnant was given a High Score by famitsu. Yet almost every other review gave it mediocre-low scores. And those two facts are why I find Jenzo's comment of famitsu being "dead on" humorous at best. Oh and let me add one more. They gave Infinite Undiscovery and 34/40. Everyone else gave it crap scores. Many even below the 5/10 mark. So yeah, goes to show how "dead on" famitsu is :)
It got a 34/40 from Famitsu. They also gave Lair a 33/40.
Hey Jenzo.. what exactly was dead on? famitsu only made a comment and gave it a score. on the other hand, some of us that are still looking forward to this title are discussing past rpg and mmorpg games to compare. yet you just made a comment that was as empty as a score with no basis. at least be a hater with a serious comment and not just one trying to get a rise out out people.
Im starting to have the N4G effect. So i guess famitsu shouldnt be trusted?? Idk..im confused. I guess WKC is one of those games i should judge based ON WHAT "I" PLAYED, when its in my hands.
I said Famitsu were dead on with this score, not all of their scores. Just wait until western media destroys it. The gameplay looks awful. If you guys could focus on anything else than it's graphics for one second you would notice it also.
outside of the graphics is what i liked. again it reminds me of final fantasy 11 and everquest online adventures which i like very much.
I saw most of the game streamed online on justin.tv. He finished the day today. He took 35 hours non stop main story only excluding deaths (Game timer resets when you die from the last save point) Its an AMAZING Game. The Scale is huge, The Graphics are good. The Gameplay is fun and the combos and transofmration is EPIC I will buy this game 1st day
And this is suppose to be an Epic RPG?....Another game I will pass on.
