The latest review scores from Famitsu have been released, which includes scores from Nier Replicant and Nier Gestalt.
Good scores for both games. They'll be out in Japan soon.
Hmm Nier looks to be a good game.
The 360 and PS3 are different games?
Only difference I believe is the character is a younger. Japanese like playing with young boys.
I love famitsu
I had forgotten that Knights in the Nightmare was coming out on PSP! Loved the DS version - can't wait for this to come out in the States. Nier looks like it's getting the appropriate scores for a Squenix side-project. Hopefully those 8's are because it's a very interesting game with some flaws, instead of it being an unoriginal or boring game that's put together well. Then again, it's Famitsu, and they're... um... interesting with their scores sometimes.
Wait, what? Japan is just now getting The Elder Scrolls IV: GOTY Edition? Wow, that took Bethesda along time lol. Edit: Either it just got released in Japan, or Famitsu took their time reviewing it. Anyone know? Edit 2: @Valay, so bethesda really did take forever to get it out in japan? Lol...
It's coming out on the 22nd apparently!
Its just coming out in Japan
Got my copy paid off. The game does not look like much at first glance, but there is a lot more to it than meets the eye. It is not just some hack n' slash game. There are lots of weapons that are upgradable with a unique word system (similar to a rune system), all sorts of different spells, side quests, epic boss fights, currency system, and even gameplay that shifts from typical third person perspective to 2-D side scrolling, to isometric dungeon crawler style at various points. The story is going to be the main draw, though. You will have to play it at least 2-3 times before everything that is going on is even explained to you, and it is around a 15 hour game. Not to mention that it is also going to be a bit on the dark side, as anyone who has played Drakengard should know. Cavia are going down a similar path here and that is why I want this game. Like Drakengard, I still expect to see some harsher reviews, but I really don't care. I have seen enough and know enough about it to know I want to play it just for the tripped out, dark and mysterious vibe it has alone.
Hmm, Square Enix have a pretty interesting lineup in 2010 thus far. With FF13, Just Cause 2, Nier, and Front Mission. I am looking to see how Front Mission turns out. If Nier gets anywhere between 80-85 on Meta, I might have to pick it up in the Summer.
maybe this is off topic but I think Front Mission will be delayed =( They still haven't come out with a release date, after all, and it's Q2 already.
