They do. But beyond that, I think the VOICING is fine, it's just the really weird dialogue that makes it seem odd.

DAMMIT ASH IT'S ONLY CALIBUR IN SOUL CALIBUR WHEN YOU'RE USING IT LIKE THIS IT'S CALIBER OR IF YOU'RE A BRIT, CALIBRE

Also I sort of agree.

And while I'm sad it's not QUITE as lavish as we might have hoped, having a new, quality-designed but lower-budget SMT is better than sending Atlus to the poorhouse to get a HYPER OMEGA 3D ENGINE AAA version. Since their parent isn't exactly flush with cash and all.

It's only the first 45 minutes. The dungeon atmosphere is also excellent, the challenge seems there, it feels very fresh, the art design is great. And the voice acting isn't BAD, it's just weird, and I chalk that up to the incredibly anachronistic dialogue and setting so far. It's too soon to lower expectations, especially when the rest of the package is very, very good.

My impressions after about 45 minutes:

- As I suspected after E3, it feels incredibly budget-y. Cutscenes have spotty animation and everything is still images. Shouldn't affect gameplay, but definitely feels cheaper than SMTIII/DDS/P3/P4/everything before it. Conversely, it feels closer to SMTI/II because of all that.
- Dialogue is incredibly wooden, and the voice acting is pretty hit or miss. It does sound like the actors are putting some effort in though, so I think it's more the fault of the writing, so far.
- Music and ambiance are fantastic.

I downloaded it off the eshop as soon as it became available. I just defeated what I think is the first "proper" boss.

Code:
Alarune: Thankfully Isabaue was kind enough to cast Posumundi after Alarune poisoned my entire party. I defeated her on the first try, I don't want to say it was easy because I think I just got lucky. If she used her two press turns on the same person I'm pretty sure it would be a garunteed KO.
.

That aside, what is everyone putting their stats into?

I'm focusing on Magic & Agility with some Luck thrown in.

The lack of a "endurance" stat took me by surprise. Hell, even equipment don't have much going for them besides some extra HP. I'm just at the start but equiment just doesn't seem worth the asking price, I'd rather use all my money on consumables and demon fusion.

Equipment probably has more use as a thing that gives you elemental strengths.

... It's $30!

I agree with everything you just said, Cyril.

I have said this maybe one other time since Chrono Cross came out, but ARR's music is one of my favorite albums so since CC and possibly on par with it, for me.

Definitely not getting an XB1. Microsoft has basically never (with the exception of Lost Odyssey on 360 and Phantom Dust on XB) catered to my tastes, and the type of experience they cultivated with 360 and are trying to cultivate on XB1 are 100% not for me. All the other stuff re: Kinect and their current exclusives (like the hilariously shitty-looking Ryse) pretty much confirm that this is a no-buy for me at launch, and their past with consoles confirms it'll stay a no-buy throughout its lifespan.

PS4, though, looks a bit more to my liking. I generally enjoy the Worldwide Studios games, I like the philosophy of the console, and several games look like I'll be on board.

How the shit can Last Mission not fit on a bluray? It can't possibly be THAT MUCH SPACE. Further, if they're digital, it REALLY doesn't matter if it fits on a bluray. And you're telling me they can fit a 30 minute video on the disc, but not content that was original in the game?

No.

Can I also say that healers that spam Medica for a single target when nobody else is hurt just make me want to bash my head into my keyboard. Does anyone not *read* tooltips??

BUT MEDICA LOOKS COOL
