Wow, another great review. Its killing me, I cant wait any longer.

Pennywise2631d ago

I am one that imported. At the same time I am glad I didnt wait, this game is without a doubt AAA.

Syronicus2631d ago

Cannot wait for this title. It looks absolutely awesome.

bnaked2631d ago (Edited 2631d ago )

It's shaping up to be a GOTY contender.. Only noobs don't like the game, because of the difficulty..

next door 'freesixty' beeefing with others and defending the lack of exclusives on the 360 said...

'No games.. hum... 5 exclusives/ year against 100 multiplattform games/ year.. '

lol think about it

Chubear2631d ago

... and to think, this is only year 3... with at least 4 more to go.

Chubear2631d ago (Edited 2631d ago )

How many high end exclusive games came out for the PS3 this year? Help me out if I missed any.

Killzone 2
MLB: The Show09
Infamous
Yakuza
Ratchet & Clank
Uncharted
Demon Souls
God of War1&2: PS3 version
NGS 2 .. (and yes if you've seen the vids and features it's pretty much an exclusive game cause the 360 doesn't have the contents of this game graphically and other wise)

I didn't even mention the ones that were not high end but I'll make a list for that one too if need be.

FiftyFourPointTwo2631d ago

Tales of Vesperia PS3?
3D Dot Game Heroes?

OGharryjoysticks2631d ago

I think you're right about the GOTY idea. It should definetely be in the running because I've read reviews that paint the picture as a true timeless classic. Technically at that point it comes down to a popularity contest for the game that beats it.

ThanatosDMC2631d ago

It'll win RPG of the year but probably not GOTY since Uncharted 2 will claim that right.

WOW!! Uncharted 2 and Demon Soul's are tag teaming.

FiftyFourPointTwo2631d ago

NGS2 is getting very solid reviews too.

Sarcasm2631d ago

9s and 10s left and right. Well deserved!

Defectiv3_Detectiv32631d ago

Just wait for Ratchet and Clank to come out later this year, that and the possibility of GT5 means every GOTY nominee could be a sony one.

eagle212631d ago

Don't forget The God Of War Collection on Blu-ray. :p

Morituri2631d ago

I just noticed that you were right. Two games on one team kicking all the competition to the MF'n curb.

bjornbear2631d ago

totally what i was thinking xD

Damn...these two, and NGS2 will make PS3 the strongest console for exclusives this year (warming up for the next =))

What else do the xbots have to play but another rendition of halo?

Up next, Master Chief and the Chipmunks, Halo 3 action figures, and your very own Master Chief Pajamas!

colossi162631d ago

Wow, is this the same developer that brought us enchanted arms? They did a 180 with this and 3D Dot heroes.

raztad2631d ago

It's not by chance. I read Sony Japan asked From Software to develop a spiritual sequel to Kings Fields, and they had a lot to say in the game design.

Game is preordered. Cant wait to destroy some Demons.

SaiyanFury2631d ago

Yeah FROM Software knows their stuff when it comes to making dark, brooding RPGs. They have the King's Field pedigree from that. It doesn't surprise me that the similar designs and artwork would carry over from that series. If you want to try some of their earlier works, check out the King's Field series on PS1 and PS2. The controls are somewhat sluggish, but you get used to it. I'm playing through King's Field 2 right now actually.
