2266  Media / Single-Player RPGs / How Did You Play Final Fantasy XII? on: July 14, 2007, 09:56:04 PM
It plays like an MMO, its even based off FF11 or something. And it's not the ****ing same as the last whatever years, its totally different. You used to input commands and make strategic decisions, in FF12 it was all autoscripted  abilities with the attack command going off over and over again. It played differently, even if it had an ATB bar, and worst of all the story was complete and utter **** moved along slower than a snail's pace. You would grind a dungeon for 2 hours then get about 15 seconds of dialogue. Pathetic.

I played it completely active, everything at the fastest speed. It just felt slow as hell otherwise. Anything not a boss fight was terribly boring. Boss fights would be easy too, I would just adjust my gambits, or lose once then come back and adjust them properly. Its just a boring game, the combat isn't as interesting and fun as KOTOR.

2269  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Even more ASH Info and Scans, Semi-SRPG? on: July 12, 2007, 06:52:50 PM
via GAF

- The game is supposed to be more realistic and serious, hence the requirement for pre-rendered movies, sprites, and voice.

- The game's theme and tone are very different from Blue Dragon.

- It's a mix of RPG commands and Simulation RPG strategy maps. You form teams of up to 3 characters with a leader, and it's represented as a single unit on the map. You can have up to 5 teams at the same time later.

- When you engage enemies on the battlefield, instead of a one-to-one attack like in a normal strategy game, it switches to a team battle encounter like a RPG, menu driven.

- As it is a strategy RPG, everything is governed by Action Points. AP is shared between an entire team, not individual characters.

- There are two types of characters - main characters and ash warriors. Only main characters who are actual living beings and story characters can be team leaders.

- Ash warriors are considered as troops in your army which can level up and gain skills. When you're satisfied with their development you can then absorb them into a main character to transfer the powers. Absorbed ash warriors are lost forever.

- First 2 Gigabit DS rom. They really need the space.

- Like any other strategy RPG, there will be field skills that you can use on the battlefield itself, as well as support magic that allows one team to boost the stats of another team, etc.

- Mistwalker seems to actually be developing the entire game themselves this time. Release date is definitely within 2007 in Japan.


2270  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Full Lost Odyssey E3 Trailer on: July 12, 2007, 12:55:21 AM
Quote from: "Eusis"
I watched the trailer that was on the Live Marketplace. Dunno if it's the same, but looks/sounds good, as I expected. Kinda seems like a more traditional FF. Also REALLY like how Mistwalker's actually using 5 member parties.

Yeah, it's the same one. At first I thought a Five-Party system would be overly complicated but it actual sets about a great balance of different characters (Since playing Blue Dragon). 4-5 is definitely better than the usual 3.

Edit: Also the trailer reinforces my theory that Turn Based games have the biggest, baddest, most crazy mother****ing bosses in all of RPGs.
2271  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Blue Dragon Playable Demo up on: July 11, 2007, 04:20:19 PM
Download it and play it, but I warn you to skip the cutscenes by pressing start. Its a fantastic demo, it reeks of quality and gives a Final Fantasy vibe. Some V-sync issues, but definitely worth checking out. Day 1 purchase.
2272  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Full Lost Odyssey E3 Trailer on: July 11, 2007, 12:11:36 PM
After watching it a few times I'm growing accustomed to the main characters voice. I still don't like that officer though at the beggining.

Those voices feel so unfitting. The visuals are nice though.

Edit: Here's a gameplay montage of a few attack scenes

2275  The Rest / General Discussions / In-Game Ads To Grow Exponentially on: July 08, 2007, 01:29:49 PM
I don't mind RPGFan's ads at all. Usually because they're relevant to the site, and not in the middle of the screen. They're enough to get me interested in the game too, which there's usually a thread about.
2276  Media / Single-Player RPGs / New Lost Odyssey Scans, your eyes will explode on: July 05, 2007, 02:01:33 AM
Best looking new-gen RPG yet IMO


I stole these from GAF, I just had to share with you guys :)

Some quick details:

Battle System was overhauled, alot was changed

Brief skimming of article reveals:
- new movie at E3, downloadable on marketplace mid july
- currently doing full scale rebalance of gameplay... events are heavy so they want to reduce the number of battles
- definitely out this year, don't worry

2277  The Rest / General Discussions / The Pulse of the RPG Gaming Community (Wii / 360 / PS3) on: July 05, 2007, 12:34:25 AM
Its very unlikely Sony will catch up hardware-wise any time soon, if ever. They know their bread and butter, and that was  Blu-Ray as a long term profitable venture and using the PS3 to push it. The price barrier is just too high, and not enough games are coming out for it.

Japan IS Nintendoland, no doubt about it, and I guarantee you the PS3 will never catch up there. Ever. Sony has a good chance in Europe, but with GTA4, Halo 3, and the better versions of football games being released on the 360, it won't capture the casual jock crowd of the US. And don't underestimate sports games, remember it was those games that helped the PS2 beat the Dreamcast in the times of old!
2278  Media / Single-Player RPGs / The Last Remnant trailer is up on IGN! on: July 03, 2007, 09:29:59 PM
It looks interesting! Turn based with an army battle at the same time armed with super weapons?

2279  The Rest / General Discussions / The Pulse of the RPG Gaming Community (Wii / 360 / PS3) on: July 03, 2007, 07:27:05 AM
Wii is popular in Japan, the root of all Japanese Games. We'll probably see a storm of low budget stuff on it eventually.

A lot of a JRPG is it's presentation and storyline, more so than other games. I think the amount of JRPGs we get on PS3/360 will be lessened, but their quality much better than ever before.
2280  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Blue Dragon and Lost Odyssey at E3 on: July 03, 2007, 07:23:48 AM
If you're signed up for Press Releases from Microsoft, they sent out an e-mail about E3 and how trailers, gamerpics, and demos would be available during the event. I think there's a good chance of a Blue Dragon demo hitting the marketplace, but best of all they also listed Lost Odyssey under there, so we can at least see how far it's progressed since the TGS06 demo running on the incomplete versions of Unreal Engine 3.

I'm praying Lost Odyssey doesn't turn out to be a flop, or even just a "good" game. It looks like the closest we'll get to a spiritual successor to the traditional Final Fantasy for a long while. The project has some pretty big names behind it, and hopefully this game will be a monument to their legacies.

Blue Dragon is scheduled for release in Europe and North America late August, Lost Odyssey is scheduled for December worldwide release.
