Kotaku's Jason Schreier writes, "Thirty minutes. That's all I need. Thirty minutes to decide whether or not a role-playing game is worth playing."
thirty seconds, thats all i need, thirty seconds to decide wheter or not kotaku is trolling for hits... again
I could tell within about 15 minutes I was going to enjoy Tales of Graces lol.
Would be nice to see script and story consideration on the level of a Chrono Trigger, FF4 or the first Wild Arms. WA has okay mechanics, took a while for the fights to become challenging, but past the opening - which already had me hooked - the five minutes, the character introductions, finished the job. The total opposite of FFXIII, which I mistakenly gave fifty hours of my time before I finally gave up.
Resonance of Fate's story was a little... Vague, but the gameplay and characters are great! Kotaku, you have no patience for games it seems, a game wants you to learn on your own and you're lost? Did you ever make it into Demons Souls?
I LUV Resonance of Fate! And i agree with you that tri-ace can make RoF story better than that. But gameplay wise: it's awesome! About joketaku, lol, they only try to make a hit. Don't took they words seriously.
Kotaku just needs to quit.
Is it just one guy who is writing all these asinine opinion pieces on Kotaku or is it the entire site as a whole? seriously....
RoF battle system is something new & it's not something made for the casual market or for gamers w/o patient for sure, after all any JRPG will take more or less 40+ hours to finish, that means 2 things, first u must be PATIENT! & 2 u must be ready to LEARN! & read a lot, obviously this guy was not ready to do any of the above so it might be better to consider skip the game for his own sake.
30 minutes isn't long enough to gauge whether or not a 30+ hour game is worth playing. Hell, if I dropped every game if I wasn't interested in after 30 minutes, there are a lot of games I wouldn't have ended up playing and enjoying. Also...game sites need to stop ignoring JRPGs just because they're JRPGs. It seems that they just aren't willing to give a JRPG a chance unless it has "Final Fantasy" in the title. Resonance of Fate (pictured) is a good example of this...the characters were fun, the story was great (if a little confusing), the world was gorgeous and far more expansive than FFXIII's, the battle system was quite clever. But did it get any press before it's release? Nope. No site wanted to give it the time of day. :(
