She's standing there...

Giant Crab..

Slowly lunging and attacking it...

I don't know man.

It doesnt seem like you are in charge of the speed. He waited to fill his entire bar, then to prudently not waste it, he waited like 2 secs before he used the next chunk... sounds like nothings changed...

After watching the trailer, i had the feeling of one part Mass Effect 2 (compare this trailer to the launch one for ME2), one part The Crow, and one part Metal Gear Solid.

Needless to say though, it got my blood flowing and me somewhat excited to play it. I only played a little of the first one but couldn't continue due to my inability to play old fps's without getting motion sickness and puking everywhere...

I so hope that they run the game through quality control this time. Having to trick the game in Ar tonelico 2 to keep it from crashing and the left over cloche in Japanese were almost unforgivable...

NISA has been doing a much better job with their QA lately.  They know they made a mistake and have been doing their best to fix it.  Annie, Sakura Wars, Badman, even Cross Edge, were bug-free titles.  People mention AT2 like it's the rule, not the exception, but really, NISA knows they screwed up.

Also, "trick" the game to get past Raki?  What nonsense is this?  You only needed Replekia.

A game crashing bug is still a game crashing bug no matter how you want to spin it. As for the other titles, I would hope they come out bug free since consumers dont want beta code. What do you guys think of the 3D models?

There are more problems than the graphics and controls.  My main problem with the graphics is that there are some severe FPS drops later on when there's a lot of enemies on screen.  Even when you're not fighting, in some sections.  For example, in "Part 2" in the Northern Plains there are enemies that will fight each other.  I was across the map (which is moderately sized) and I was still lagging badly and the graphics were grainy even though I had absolutely nothing to do with the fight between NPCs on the other side.

Also, the pacing is horrible.  The story goes from required fetch quests to backtracking through those same dungeons over and over again. Every dungeon in the game is explored at least twice, with very few changes in-between each visit.  The side quests are abominations and are the worst kind. They're all fetch quests that require backtracking and/or killing hundreds of enemies for items.  I think one quest took me 3 hours of killing to get enough drops for.

Other than that, both the enemy and ally AI is very bad and the lack of any true "quick travel" really hurts the game.  Even when you do get access to a ship for faster traveling, you still have to walk through large open areas filled with enemies to reach the town you want to visit. 

I know exactly what you mean with the slowdown, the music almost came to a screeching halt as I made a mad dash for the nearest (no pun intended) save point out of fear the game was crashing and I had not save in a good while.

I'm not too sure if I agree with you on the pacing though, you could easily ignore the side-quests and chew the meat and potatoes only. The game had some really beautiful set pieces and the music made me not care about running through a dungeon the second time. All I know is that I couldnt put the game down because I always wanted to know what was going to happen next, which to me, meant the pacing was fine.

No quick travel kinda sucked but you run at a maniacal pace so that didnt bother me too much either.

Anyone else sickened by the sheer amount of negative word-of-mouth press for this game? It also seems to be pouring out of those who haven't even played it yet...
