The arguing over it came up in a few threads back when this place used the RPGBoard script, but obviously it was way after FF7 had released, and not before.  But that stuff definitely existed.  Trust me, I was one of those die-hard anti-Sony kids at the time, and there were plenty of "Final Fantasy 7 sucks" and "Square betrayed Nintendo" pages on Geocities, Xoom, Fortune City, and all the other free webspace providers to browse through back then.  Eventually, I pulled the stick out of my ass and stopped being a one-console-kid that had to bash anything that wasn't on my platform of choice.

It was similar to the bickering and arguing that went on when Working Designs cancelled Lunar: SSS on the Sega Saturn and switched over to localizing it for Playstation.  I should know, because I was one of many folks who participated in that nerd-rage.  It's not a period of my life that I was particularly proud of, let me tell you.

Jesus, it's crazy that it's been over a decade since I first visited this website.

I call BS on this one. There was no one to whine about that. Everyone had bought a PSX over N64 before FFVII was even announced.

You must be new here.

For those that missed it earlier amidst all the (amusing) fighting...

Higher quality version of The Last Remnant trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NXWqR4mDZE4

And the Star Ocean 4 trailer again: http://youtube.com/watch?v=SgcZH4ZWTes

I watched the JP Marketplace version of the Infinite Undiscovery trailer since I was already on it, and the JP voice acting is a lot more bearable.  Previous RPG releases on the console have included the JP voice acting, so I hope this bears true with IU as well.  Interesting stuff to watch as everyone waits for Metal Gear Solid 4 to release tomorrow.

I don't understand what the developers are thinking unless they are getting compensation to make up the difference.

See, this is the problem.  Why do you give a shit if it makes sense?  It doesn't matter.

Star Ocean 4 is coming to 360.  If you want to play Star Ocean 4, you have to buy a 360.  No amount of discussion is going to change this, unless Square Enix decides they want to port it.  Maybe you can wait in line for it like Eternal Sonata.  If Japanese gamers are so stupid that they will outright refuse to buy these games because it's on an American console, then it's their loss.  Not mine.

This is the same stupid bullshit people were screaming when Final Fantasy VII went to Playstation.  History has a knack for repeating itself.

If this were in the US and we were talking a western genre like FPS games on 360 there'd be riots from western gamers

What the hell are you babbling about.  No there wouldn't.  Contrary to popular belief, western consumers are not particularly loyal.  In case you hadn't noticed, the United States is filled with a ton of foreign goods.  No one buys into that "BUY AMERICAN" crap these days.  Customer loyalty isn't rewarded.  These corporations aren't going to cut us a check.  If Halo 4 releases on PlayStation 4, then Halo fans are going to buy PlayStation 4.

Seriously, shut the fuck up.  You can buy a 360 to play these games, or you can stick to your one console lifestyle and miss out.  I on the other hand, don't give a shit what platform any of these games release on, since I get to play them all.

Short version: haha, I get to play Star Ocean 4 and you don't.

Wow guys, Unreal Engine 3 is such a "mediocre" engine.

Don't put words in my mouth thanks.

There's other things, if you'd prefer.  I'll leave that to your imagination.

Wow, another man on the internet with a juvenile brain. :|

Surely, you assume I am talking about bananas and lollipops.

Nothing like an action RPG that you have to pause every other second to heal your stupid AI partners!

The game would have been far better if it were turn-based.  Or some kind of action-gauge derivative.  I was extremely excited about this game, and let down completely.

Star Ocean 4 trailer: http://youtube.com/watch?v=SgcZH4ZWTes

A lot better than the other two trailers... they actually tried with this one.

It's a good thing you're here to tell us all about how a small-time studio that made one game doesn't like the engine.  Otherwise Epic might have had all of us fooled.

There were more positive comments in the article you linked than negative.  Developers who seem to be having no problems with Unreal:

2K Studios
Artificial Studios
Avalon Style Entertainment
DICE
Electronic Arts
NCSoft
Propaganda Games
Sega
Square Enix
Ubisoft

In fact, Sega extended their UE3 license just two weeks ago.

a lot of people had problems optimizing UE3

You might want to be a little more specific than that.

Gears of War looks remarkably better than Lost Odyssey, yet did not have excessive load times, had a pretty stable framerate, etc.  The same can be said of Bioshock.

The engine isn't the problem.

Radiant Dawn is awesome.  Well, except the ending which is freakin' terrible.  But everything else about it is awesome, especially if you played Path of Radiance.
2160  Media / Single-Player RPGs / voice acting so bad its funny. on: June 08, 2008, 05:51:20 PM
The creepy artwork would prevent me from taking the game seriously, regardless of the voice acting quality.
