The beginning of a story destined to be a wondrous journey.
I have seen it all before. It looks like a final fantasy game with no innovations besides better graphics and a distinct visual style. Maybe it´s just me! I never understood these turn-based japanese RPGs. Well in the end it all boils down to the story I guess...
tell that to sony and the masive ff fans
Right now the 360 has no answer to the upcoming Final Fantasy which will probably sell a lot of systems in Japan, even if it's crap. The 360 needs an HD drive though, 4 disks is unacceptable. 360 RPG fans better be buying these up, Microsoft is trying to install a 360 base in Japan and if the 360 continues to do poorly there (which I'm sure it will), these games will no longer be produced unless they do well in the US.
"It looks like a final fantasy game with no innovations besides better graphics and a distinct visual style." Hironobo Sakaguchi is the Designer and creator of Final Fantasy. Hironobo Sakaguchi is the Designer and creator of Lost Odessey. Hironobo Sakaguchi has nothing to do with Final Fantasy. The games are unrelated to the previous works in any way besides the title. If you like Final Fantasy, buy this game (or Blue Dragon) and you'll be getting the master's work. If you want a title that is the exploitation of what Sakaguchi once created, buy future FF titles. Blue Dragon BTW is terrific. I have never enjoyed a JRPG more. I played and loved FFVII, but was never a big fan of other JRPGs I tried. When I got my Xbox 360, I wanted to try another of Sakaguchi's titles, it is terrific. I might prefer the art direction seen in Lost Odessey, but I did enjoy the anime style of BD. I love Anime, and I though this intro was very engaging and visionary. Great work. Hope the game is as good as it promises to be.
I totally agree. I've never got the appeal of them, nor have i found a story that's interesting to me. I don't get what so many people see in JRPGs but meh.
the ff7 intro. I bet they want a ff7 quality game.
who are they?
bababrooks, this game is created by Hironobu Sakaguchi's Studio Mistwalker. Hironobu Sakaguchi is the Creator of the Final Fantasy Series and was responsible for Final Fantasy 1 through 10. They = Mistwalker
hey buddy (2.2) thanks man. i love games, times are way different from my donkey kong alarm clock(1982),i get pissed because folk do not get the point about play with what you are happy with........................ps all games are good to the people that play them! do you get it? edit:mistwalker..who are they (lol)leub ragdno
Only 8 more games to go until its worth getting a 360.
Hell if there were that many games for any other console coming in the near future worth my money I would own more than one console. Looking for new IP's though; not old series on Nintendo's consoles or series that started on Nintendo's consoles but are now popular on PS consoles.
I think it looks good.. To the people above isn't one of the former creators of the older FF making this?
by the Final Fantasy series originator himself Hironobu Sakaguchi. This guy Created the Final Fantasy series. I think FFVII was the last one he really worked on. He also supervised others down the line before he got canned. Plus you have the greatest VG music composer known to man working on the soundtrack.
Gears of War is enough reason to get a 360.
Gears runs mutch better on PC, infact almost all 360 games that are also on windows,(which is almost all of the) run better on PC....This game however may actually give me a reason to fire up by 360, finally a game with a storyline on 360
then Blue dragon and my next RPG will be this one. I'm into VG music as well, I have this theme if anyone wants it.
when i read the comments i thought that you guys saying it was like ff7 were wrong but then i watched the video and it does it even does the whole look at the city then picture of pipes and focus on a character
the only games i see are mass effect,too human, and lost odyessy,fable 2, and that's it. those are the 360's upcoming killer apps. the ps3 has mgs4,killzone2,lbp, ff13,ff13versus. It's pretty even
I'm pretty hyped for NG2, Splinter Cell, and Huxely (game has some SERIOUS potential). But even if you don't care for those games, dude you have to mention Alan Wake. C'mon. I don't think Lost Odyssey will be a killer app. Maybe its just me...
The 360 has Mass Effect and that's it. If you're going to include Too Human and Fable 2, include Ratchet and Clank and Uncharted for the PS3. Quite simply the biggest franchises left are: GTA4, the biggest without a doubt. Then, FF13, MGS4, and GT5 Then, Mass Effect. Like it or not, at most Lost Odyessey is a warm up to Final Fantasy 13.
I'm looking forward to: * Ace Combat * Alan Wake * Dungeon Hero * Sacred 2 * Warhound * Huxley * Ninja Gainden 2 * Mass Effect * Too Human * Project Offset * Fable 2 * Lost Odyessy * Splinter Cell * GOW 2 * Kindom under Fire. * Halo game(s) Could see some sleepers like: * Thesis * Elveon * Naruto(could sell like a AAA great family game on top its normal fans). ofcourse any of these games could flop aswell as some of the games in the PS3 fans list. These seem like they will sell like AAA's after all thats all a AAA is games that sell alot of software. "These games are based on a theory that they will sell like an AAA just as the games PS3 fans list". AAA is anything you wan't it to be but bottom line is they sell alot of copies and push hardware and bring in non gamers and turn them into gamers(Lost planet wouldn't have been a AAA due to its score but its sells enough making it an AAA by default due to the game pushing hardware and selling many copies more than any PS3 game despite its reviews etc).
r and c , how old are you kid? that is like comparing whiskey and water! .................me , i like the whiskey! rant over 8.2
The original poster listed a small amount of games and called them Killer Apps(You say AAA in your post, but that was never mentioned, as in a figment of your own imagination). I simply pointed out that the 360 games he listed weren't in the same league as some of the PS3 games he listed. You could've saved some space and linked the 360 release list because that's basically what you did. Oh and nice on the Halo game(s) listing, I forgot 4 and 5 were due out soon. Once again, the biggest franchise games that actually have a release date are: GTA4, GT5, MGS4, and Final Fantasy 13 for the PS3 Mass Effect and GTA4 for the 360 and that's all.
LOL I was going to add banjo-kazo for him and changed my mind.
whom is this you you talk about.......say what you mean, i think you are trying to justify a purchase you have made! 8.5
ok. I'm never really been syked for JRPGs, although for some (strange) reason- I've been dying to get involved with one. Perhaps this might be it... but so far "meh".
I got goosebumps when I saw that reminded me of ffVII for some reason. Glad to see its a quality tittle. Definitely getting my money.
I might be wrong to doubt this game then (seeing as highly acclaimed FF is). we'll see.
But I think Infinite Undiscovery will wipe the floor with this game.
reminded me of ffvii as well. it was the cars going by and the people walking on the street. ~ aeris in the beginning with the flowers and cars etc. watch the tech demo.. haha steampunk world ftw. hopefully it won't be too "old fashioned" cause you know, the director is like that its sad that someone would disagree with this... oh well
I hope this doe good on the 360. May be the first Japanese type RPG to do well. I looks good. Its funny how the 360 has more japanese rpg's than the PS3 but they don't sell for ish. They need to make some of these on the PS3 so they can sell better.
Yea it would sell better in japan American xbox 360 owners like me want more wrpgs like mass effect. But this jrpg is look solid will definitely check it out.
Anyways. This game needs to come out. I've been waiting too long for a JRPG for the 360 ;3
It looks alright, so it all boils down to whether the story is good or not. And why does everyone compare this to ff. First, ff 13 should be and most likely be better than LO, and second, ff is not the best jrpg franchise. If you think it is, then u haven't played much jrpg. 360 fans really have to play more jrpg to know what a good jrpg is since I realize that most of them don't know the definition of a quality jrpg.
I'm an Xbox fan and I know that ChronoTrigger and the DragonQuest Franchies beat FF(in terms of story and gameplay) hands down... I just Hate the art work.... Akira can go to hell... I hate DBZ D: edit The Art Desinger from LO and ChronoTrigger(and DQ) are completely diffrent Xi :P The guy who's working on LO(artwork) is the same person who made City Hunter
because the one who's making it made the FF series what it is. He wrote the story on the first FF upto the 6th then directed then upto 10 and then was a consultant on 12, before heading up his own studio. Character designers from the creator of the DBZ and the sound director is the famed Nobou Uematsu, who's music is actually taught in schools in japan and wrote the music on all FF projects.
I did say most 360 fans, meaning that there are a minority who likes jrpg, and you are one of them. But it's true that most 360 fans, especially those who don't have a ps2, don't know what a good jrpg is since you can count the number of jrpg on the original xbox with 5 fingers. The fact is, if u don't own a ps2 and don't play jrpg on ur pc or ps2, then u can't say u know what a quality jrpg is.
it might not be the best some times, but it`s deifnately AAA brand. I mean, a lot of money, a lot of work(yeah 2-3 years for one big game), and you get a really GREAT GAME, complete game, amazing game.
Damn.....That gave me the goosebumps! amazing! Nobou Uematsu has done it again! Love the music And with Sakaguchi working on it I have no doubt it will be an amazing game :D
I'm not keen on JRPGs (actually I've never owned one before) but if LO turns out to be good I might get it, if I have some extra cash on me. That way I'll have a JRPG figuratively under my belt as a gamer.
I'll probably get this game for the music alone.
looks great! =) if this intro made on engine, then it`s even greater. but yeah, feels like old Final Fantasy games.. =) and well, that`s not that bad. Good qality game should be.. but i don`t think, that this game will seel better then mass effect, for many years final fantasy brand was living on playstation console, and main fanbays of these kind rpg is there, not on xbox. =) still, great game, and must play for every jrpg lover. =) Atleast till FFXIII comes.. =))
Hironobu Sakaguchi is working on a 3rd Xbox 360 title... Square Enix has already announced two games for Xbox 360 one of them by Tri-Ace of Star Ocean fame. That said, there is a high probability that some of the big PS3 exclusives are going to have to go multi-platform if they want to sell any copies in the USA -- which is the largest market in the world --which is being dominated by Xbox 360. The American stronghold is going to mean Japaneese Developers *MUST* bring the games to Xbox 360 if they want American sales. Square Enix has already said as much.
It dose remind me of ff7's intro, getting a small glimpse of the city and then getting off of..........some sort of train.
Looks nice. The music kind of reminds of Eternal Sonata and...I have no clue, but its definitely a mix of ES and something else thats currently eluding my mind.
interesting they use an indian script to partly make the language of those people look different. Stargate did this for humans on other planets(not limited to indian, also runes and other stuff) I love the music too. It feels familiar yet different
but im not sure if it'll appeal to the japan market! Ir really should've been on the ps3 that way it would only be on 1 disc instead of 4, but either way, 360 fans should love this game, ill just be waiting for FFXIII and MGS4! AAA titles are over-rated, but there's a good reason for that!
Did you read any comments before this one? The person responsible for Final Fantasy has left Square Enix. Final Fantasy is now being made by the Second-String. Hironobo Sakaguchi -- the man who made FF 1-10 -- is making this game. It makes *NO* sense to say "Im waiting for FFXIII and not Lost Odessey" as all the talented people responsible for FF have left and gone to Mistwalker to make Lost Odessey, Blue Dragon and Cry On (no details yet on the last game). Three New IPs from the people who did the whole FF series. In short, Final Fantasy XIII has nothing to do with the previous games except for the Title.
how the hell can ps3 fans keep calling other people xbots when they say some stupid stuff like 'lost odyssey is at best the warm up to final fantasy' final fantasy hasn't been really good since 7, and it hasn't been good since 9. 12 was a let down. yet you ps3 fanboys are jizzing over final fantasy XIII? the whole reason the final fantasy series has ANY cache in the gaming world is because of sakaguchi. he's the one who made the series what it is. as wageslave said each final fantasy is different, they have nothing to do with each other. in fact, final fantasy XIII has less to do with the entire series than lost odyssey because the man who made the best final fantasy games is making lost odyssey. (duh) so final fantasy XIII is great just because it's called final fantasy? what about the actual quality of the game? how about actually enjoying the game on its merits instead of fooling yourself into thinking you're playing a classic just because it has a classic namesake?
