Lost Odyssey contains 20 hours of cut-scenes

Now we're not going to say if that's a good thing or not, you can just all make up your own minds about whether it's positive or negative that for half the game's 40-hour challenge you'll just be sitting there watching story bits happening.

The story is too old to be commented.

If its on X360 having 20 hours of cutscene is good! If its on PS3 and having 20 hours of Cutscene is bad!

HaKeRsCanRotINHEL4038d ago

How so?

What the heck are you talkin' bout TnS!?

Vertius4038d ago

Because games on the 360 are subject to less scrutiny than PS3 games, especially on a divisive issue such as cut-scene length. Some like a lot of cut-scenes, like myself, and others cry out that they "Want to play a game, not watch a movie!"

Kulupoo4038d ago

Is not about quantity of cut scenes, is about quality (mood and style)
but i doubt the video quality of the cut scenes will be amazing due to DVD 9's capacity
unless they are planning on using more than 1 DVD, which i think will probably be a good idea for the developers

power of Green 4038d ago (Edited 4038d ago )

If you Doubt you havn't seen anything about this game, not one god dam thing. Your ignorance about DVD9 and how space isn't an issue with this JRPG title is embarrassing even for me.

Kulupoo4038d ago (Edited 4038d ago )

I like this game design and style, Im not doubting the story and game play part... im doubting the video quality, DvD 9 is about 7.95 GB
, average quality of video in DivX coding is around 7mb/min, and with 20 hours it will waste 8.4GB...
I really dont care if I need to switch disk or not, i want to have a good quality cut scenes...

Edit: I remember when I use to play FFVIII on PC... switching disk for every 25 hour is not bad (it also tells you is time to relax for abit in case your playing 25 hour straight), I dont get the huge point why people keep yelling about disk switching

Gondee4038d ago

It might not be videos, rather cut sences handled by the ingame engine. This will be nice to see how this plays out. And give us or at least me what its like having that amout of space to work with

Robeezy4038d ago

i agree, who cares if you need to get up and change a disk every 25 hours? Not a big deal guys. I also agree is all about quality of the cut scenes, having to sit through 20 HOURS of cut scenes would be torture if they are crappy. Most voice acting in games is not up to par imo, its terrible most of the time. However, if they do put a lot of effort into it it could provide a pretty cool experience if you really get into the game. We'll see...

Kulupoo4037d ago

@ 1.6 ya i think in-game cut scenes will be nice since gameplay quality is already pretty good

projectile4037d ago

The game is coming on 4 DVD9(9gigs each), thats about 36gb. So I would think there is a great deal of CG cutscenes too.
Having multiple DVDs on such a long game does not bother me one bit.

or wait until 360 comes out
with a 5 disc drive console

Wow the story better be good or else this game will be murdered by western reviwers

lol someone disagreed with me. So what is it??? You dont want this game to be good??? You want the story to suck in a game that apperantly relies on it?

power of Green 4038d ago (Edited 4038d ago )

Hmmm. Thats strange I was seeing it different. Sony fans love cutscenes but when games like Mass Effect take them to the next level the title gets bashed.

"Games on the 360 are subject to less scrutiny than PS3" because MSFT did not boast to the world that their cosnole was 5 X more powerful than PS3; with 360 launch games the PS3 would never touch in PS3's life time.

The scrutiny comes from the PS3 actually being less capable. No one said anything but a PS3 fanboy I don't see 360 fanboys in here saying OMG!!!, I see two envyous fanboys in here with malice driven posts.

I think most of Playstation bashing is from people that hate CGI/ingame cutscenes in general and from folks clowning on Sony trying to trick people in thinking gameplay will look like the CGI.

BaMYouRDeaD4038d ago (Edited 4038d ago )

Xbox 360 5x more powerful than PS3?

Less capable?

Have you even glanced over the specs for any of these consoles? Yes, both the 360 and PS3 are very powerful, but the PS3 definitely overpowers the 360 in terms of specs.

No, I'm not hating on the 360. I'm just pointing out facts.

As for the game itself, it looks pretty sweet. 20 hours of cut scenes? That much cut scenes can only mean one thing: a very long game. And theres nothing I love more than a long RPG.

power of Green 4038d ago (Edited 4038d ago )

Wasn't talking to you I replied to a guy wondering why the PS3 gets extra scrutiny and I anwsered saying its because Ken K. boast fictional capabilities(Yes KEN. K boasted fantastic sh*t). These fictional capabilities hurt PS3 when reality set in and the PS3 maybe being punished for its lacklusterness in comparison.

PS3 on paper means sh*t!, its over all result is inferior due to bottle necking proccessing and Ram issues hell the most basic multi platform games don't match the 360 it takes months of extra dev time to get them running on par.

Wasn't knocking this game I think its good, this game's on 4 discs and pretty dam long.

If you re read the post you'll know I was talking about things MSFT didn't say but what Sony said to earn them extra scrutiny.

The less capable part you did understand right PS3 isn't as flexable and has poor tools to tap what many say is the same amount of horsepower as the 360(only half of PS3's memory can be used for games and you have the nerve to reply to me). lol

Grown Folks Talk4038d ago

i watched on xbox live from tgs, i'd say it will be annoying as hell. take 2 steps, cutscene. another 5 steps, cutscene. plus it's turn-based. i'll pass.

Monty_The_Great4038d ago

Oklahoma sucks. There going to get destroyed by Texas. Getting beat by Colorado is unexceptable. OK sucks, and really thats all.

Monty_The_Great4038d ago

screwing with you. I'm an FSU fan, so I know what its like to loose.

Grown Folks Talk4037d ago (Edited 4037d ago )

2nd favorite. glad to see they finally let xavier lee play. at least when the o-line breaks down (& we know it will), he can do something with his feet & make a play. the coaches need to quit wasting talent. last couple of years they had 2 of the best RBs in the country & never ran the ball. texas is toast. their loss was much worse, & at home.

kewlkat0074038d ago (Edited 4038d ago )

that is probably because sony fans tout Blu-ray as being needed right away.

When a sony game has 10 gigs of sound and 50 hours of video on a BD and it fails to make the grade like a game such as BioShock then it's like who gives a sh!t about BD? DVD9 still rules...

Remember it was said, AAA titles were not possible on DVD9 as well as calling it old-gen. eventually we will get there but for now Xbox 360 using DVD9 has killer titles.

That's why PS3 games touting "GiGs" in the headlines have not mean sh!t. When it is Xbox 360 game as this one with plenty of cut scene fotage it's like, oh, we didn't think this was possible, at least that's what bling fanboys will lead you to believe.

I'm an old-school RPG gamer and this is welcome, first day purchase. I love the FF franchise and I trust the Maker.

Bathyj4038d ago

Who said you couldn't make a AAA on DVD? Stop talking crap.

I swear you guys just make outlandish sh*t up so you can agree with yourselves.

Hey BathyJ's right.

kewlkat0074037d ago (Edited 4037d ago )

to know the kind of sh!t that was spewed way before the PS3 even came out kid. I've heard and read it all. I'm now immune thtat sh!t.

I'm not gonna go back and search but sh!t, you see/seen this stuff every day don't be blind.

Your welcomed to go look for it or excuse yourself from others if you'd like.

Come on, Stop playing stupid.

Next you'll be saying "Fanboys", what fanboys? I see none on this site...
