2116  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Holy Crap. Final Fantasy XIII for Xbox 360 on: July 19, 2008, 10:24:07 AM

Agreed. Despite the technical stuff that doesn't run like it should all the time, the game has pretty good graphics. The system can't handle everything that was going on which is why all that crap happens.

The biggest bottleneck was the DVD drive.  This is why I can't wait for the fall dashboard update that'll let us install the game onto the hard drive.  It will have little to no impact on games like Lego Star Wars, but on Unreal Engine 3 games... it will make a huge difference, especially Mass Effect.

My Wii is collecting dust.  I enjoyed Fire Emblem Radiant Dawn, and Super Mario Galaxy was interesting.  Super Smash Bros Brawl didn't last too long due to the overhyped single player adventure mode which got boring quickly, and the fact that online play with the system sucks.

At this point, I'm kinda waiting for Samba de Amigo to ship, but that's all I have planned for the system.  I watched footage of Tales of Symphonia 2, and the game rubs me the wrong way... I don't like the new characters, the original voice actors for old characters aren't present, and it just looks like a cheap cash-in.  Going to wait for reviews, because I loved Symphonia to death, and I don't want to tarnish that enjoyment with some potentially mediocre sequel.

It was kind of hinted at in an interview.

I recommend you buy Uncharted ASAP.  I find it to be the best game on the platform so far.

I don't see the difference between the Wii and the last two Nintendo consoles, to be honest.  All anyone cared about on GameCube and N64 were a few select Nintendo-developed games, and then there was a bunch of other stuff that kinda went along for the ride.

Looks like business as usual, to me.  You guys got the big Zelda game at the start, so that means you're likely to have one or two more of those, probably another Mario game, and maybe something else.  Other than that, probably going to be a lot of 3rd party crap to ignore, and an occasional gem now and then.
2120  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Holy Crap. Final Fantasy XIII for Xbox 360 on: July 18, 2008, 06:13:27 PM
Yeah, likewise.  Uncharted's one of the best new IPs to come out in recent times.

so far i HAVE played MGS4 as well as Mass effect in HD and of the two MGS4 looks much better.

I wasn't talking about which game looks better.  You said Metal Gear Solid 4 looks perfect, and I call bullshit.  It's rendered at 1024x768, and as a result, the game suffers from aliasing issues.  There are also low resolution textures strewn everywhere, and shadows are especially awful in many spots.

It may have some fancy cutscenes, but again... Uncharted: Drake's Fortune kicks this game's ass in the graphics department.

I'm not a Microsoft hater (though I have to admit that I did hate the original Xbox with a passion) I just love Sony and Nintendo.

I see no reason why you should complain about S-E porting the game to 360 then.

It's a personal attack on Sony fans, obviously.

i have a 42" 1080 hd lcd and looking at L.O. on it and mass effect for that matter as well. there are times things look a bit jagged, not quite as clean. now MGS4 on the other hand looks nothing short of perfect.

You're full of shit.  Metal Gear Solid 4 is rendered at 1024x768 and thus has a lot of jagged edge issues due to having to be rescaled for 1280x720 or 1920x1080 displays.  It's even more blatant on a quality 1080p display, like mine.

Uncharted: Drake's Fortune kicks Metal Gear Solid 4's ass in the graphics department on PS3 with all the graphical effects, animation, texture quality, and for the fact that its rendered at a proper aspect ratio and resolution (1280x720).  If you seriously can't see all the aliasing issues on Metal Gear Solid 4, your TV sucks or you're blind.

I have Panzer Dragoon Orta what do you think of that game. Tried Mass Effect but it was confusing to me but i'll try again later. never played Star Wars: Kotor or Phantasy Star but I have played Skies of Arcadia for DC.

Orta was alright.  It felt like the stepchild of the series... probably because the series was meant to end with Saga.  It had that after-the-fact feel to it, and never really sat well with me.

As for Mass Effect, the game does have a problem with not explaining the game system from the get-go, and you have to pretty much figure it out yourself by trial-and-error.  The writing on the other hand, is top of the line in the genre.  I replayed it four or five times.

Ok then what RPGs did you like I was just using the FFs as an example since afterall the series is very popular.

Panzer Dragoon Saga.  Mass Effect.  Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic.  Shining Force 3.  Phantasy Star 4.  Skies of Arcadia.

There's more, but those came immediately to mind.

Wow I actually own Blue Dragon and Eternal Sonata and they don't seem to be very boring to me. I guess its all about Final Fantasy for you guys. Enchanted Arms is the only RPG I disliked I gotta try to get Lost Odyssey since it does looks interesting.

Thanks for being a presumptuous douche tool, but let's see here... I've played Final Fantasy 7's first disc (I hated it), I've played Final Fantasy X (average game), I've played Final Fantasy XI (love/hate relationship... mostly hate), and I've played Final Fantasy XII (ZZzzzzzzzZZZZZZZZzzzzzzzZZZZZZzzzzzzz).  Yeah, I'm all about some Final Fantasy.

Is this guy for real.

I disagree.  More complaining means more entertainment for me.  It's only been two days, so it hasn't worn out on me yet.
2128  Media / Single-Player RPGs / PS3 Eternal Sonata port coming to the States on: July 16, 2008, 05:44:07 PM
Congrats PS3 owners!  You already have Enchanted Arms, so maybe Mistwalker will port Lost Odyssey and Blue Dragon so you can have the full quartet of boring JRPGs that us 360 owners experienced.

Seriously, Eternal Sonata blows.  I was so hyped up for it, and was let down.  Big time.

Oh God, I almost forgot about the Team ICO game.  I bet they unveil it tomorrow.  It'll make my day... again!

According to a 1up article, the PS3 version is being finished first.

Well, it's still a PS3 exclusive in Japan, but obviously, most of us don't care since most of us don't understand Japanese. But the thing that irks me is that the 360 development is behind the PS3 and they're supposed to be released simultaneously in NA?

See you in forever, FF13.

I'd say you don't have to worry about that.  They just have to make the Crystal Tools engine work with the 360.  It's not like they have to recode the game from the ground up.  Those days are long gone.

Object-oriented programming is great stuff.
