OXM UK: OXM Talks To Square-Enix

A world in desperate need of salvation: check. A spiky-haired, sulky teenager in the lead role: check.

Improbably large swords: check. Hit points that sprout from the tops of enemy's heads: check. Treasure chests that litter deep, dark dungeons and an endless, endless supply of monsters spoiling for a fight: check and check.

The Japanese RPG is as predictable as it is divisive. But Last Remnant, the first all-new JRPG for the Xbox 360 to come from the minds of Square-Enix, creator of the seminal Final Fantasy and Dragon Quest series, while exhibiting all of the features listed above, is also a game hoping to buck convention.

The story is too old to be commented.

Square-Enix sits down to speak with the sony droids, after a few harsh words... Square b!tch slaps their ugly faces and says get a life you losers and get over it! the XBOX 360 IS THE NEW LEADER IN THE NEX-GEN HD GAMING WORLD!

It's been the team's first time working both with Xbox 360 and the Unreal Engine (the graphics engine used in games such as Gears of War and Unreal Tournament 3). In both cases the experience has been a positive one.

In fact, as we've only just finished work on Last Remnant I don't even know what my next project is going to be at Square Enix. However, I'm very much hoping it'll be for Xbox 360 as it's been a lot easier to work with than PlayStation 3.

That quote sounds familiar

iamtehpwn3675d ago

Your game has pop-in on models and textures, slow down, freezes, it's technical MESS, and 360 is easier to work with?

God if that's easier to work with and the PS3 version was difficult, I very much fear what kind of ass you're making for it.

Where's the GOOD ol' Square Enix?

DNAgent3675d ago

There is no such thing as a GOOD Square-Enix unless you are referring to Squaresoft cause all of Square-Enix's games have been mediocre at best.

Man the 360 version of Last Remnant was a joke too many glitches. The 360 is easier to work on than the Ps3 then why the gltiches on the 360 game. Man i would hate to buy the ps3 version and it freezes the system.

Taking in to consideration all of the complaints, if the XBOX360 was easier to work with then I'll have to pass on the PS3 port. No thanks Square-Enix.

I played it, the game is garbage. Squarenix needs to stick with the old formula and stop making the less then mediocre new IP's they been making this gen. I dont care if the graphics are even bad. Just make a game thats compelling. Make me feel like Im part of the world. It seems they are trying to set themselves apart from the old squeenix( Squaresoft and Enix). They should just stick to what they know. You dont have to be innovative to make a great game.
