Neocrisis: It seems that the HDD loads 2 to 3 times faster than the DVD. Remember that Lost Odyssey was released little more than 9 months ago.

Wasn't Lost Odyssey a failure

gdguide4027d ago

1) Wow, what a great improvement!

2) Wow. How the HECK did anyone play that game and not pull their hair out out the waiting? Even the 17 seconds instead of 34 would drive me crazy for every time you battle. That should be 10 seconds max.

The load times didn't bother me cause I'm used to it since most RPGs take about that long to load as well. I said it in the last post regarding NXE that Lost Odyssey definitely got a 40%-50% improvement thanks to the HDD. And I definitely love playing it like that.

OFF-TOPIC: Who's the idiot that puts only Sed in front? Kaim should be in front as well as well as Seth, especially during the Immortal One. I know in the 2nd test, all 3 are in front, but damn. You'd have to be just plain stupid, or very faithful of Sed alone to put him in front against the Immortal One.

But it's nice to see improvements. It looks like I'll have to invest in a bigger HDD.

yeah magic users should ALWAYS be in the back, and as for sed it depends cause he raises the parties total defense if he's up front, but yeah he should always be in the back since he uses a long distance weapon.

I'm glad it isn't HDD vs DVD visuals comparison.

Reminds me of RGB PS3 claims when you need an HDTV, HDMI 1.3 and a source/divice that can take advantage to even have an argument.

I can see what the dude meant, GTA4 has pop-in and objects are faded and ghosted when not fully loaded depending on the drive(performance) not doing a perfect job and even health of your drive.

I can see this feature helping with the partially loaded environments(even more so in the background) helping to create more solid and vivid worlds due to the drive loading textures *or* even solid objects late(background textures and objects are often translucent when a drive can't perform the way it needs to, warn/old or new.
