2326  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Two Worlds on: March 09, 2007, 04:42:19 AM
I'm not sure if alot of people on this forum have love for games like Oblivion and Gothic, but Two Worlds (PC, 360) seems to look like a nice blend between the two. It's a Third Person sandbox game that originally boasted about being much less linear than Oblivion was in quests.

These type of games from german developers usually end up a little sloppy, Gothic 3 was near unplayable, but this one looks pretty good, although all the footage is of the PC build. Visually its fantastic, and they use motion capture to do most animations with the humanoid characters.

Here's a streaming video:

seems 1up is down keeps timing out for me maybee ill try again tomarrow.

edit:scratch that it loaded now. ill ammend my post after i read it :o

edit2:ok i thought it was stupid do these guys even play their own games? they seem kinda clueless. a real life rpg would be boring because it would be hard to keep the player entertained. you cant exactly fight bullys every 10 steps.i think some of the posters here have better ideas on how to make good rpg's than these guys.

What are you talking about? They were answering a question from the crowd about "Real Life RPGs", Molyneux commented how it would be more fun to be in a fictional situation, and Sakaguchi said he had an idea about an RPG that focuses on getting back with your girlfriend. I think you read a little bit too fast.

Release date for Japan is June 14th

Man this is going to be a great summer with Eternal Sonata and Blue Dragon, can't wait for the first wave of next-gen RPGs.
2330  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Replaying RPGs? on: February 28, 2007, 06:42:15 PM
I rarely replay RPGs. Only a few have kept me going back, The Elder Scrolls with fan-modifications specifically.
2331  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Super Paper Mario on: February 23, 2007, 10:01:01 PM
The problem with Mario RPGs (Save the first one) is that they're so unbelievably easy. I hope this game is more of a platformer than a RPG, as that aspect looks very promising. My only fear is that it won't exactly handle like a normal Super Mario Platformer and focus more on the ability aspects of the characters you play as (Mario (Turning the level), Peach (Floating with Umbrella), Bowser (Breathing Fire), Other Character (TBA).

Actually thats how they flip people off in Japan

Still, I beg you not to dismiss the game for it's art style. I think the characters look pretty interesting, although they made Shu a bit of a typical spiky haired kid, the supporting cast is pretty well made. The game is a bit light hearted but it still has serious overtones and an emotional storyline. It's not just some little bumfigging contest with a bunch of kids.

And Okami did so bad that Clover Studio was disbanded by Capcom, although they supposedly got back together as their own studio now.

ADMIN EDIT:  No mp3 sharing, champ.

Yeah but most anime looks the same in general, its the outfits and hair that makes the characters distinct. Toriyama just has a more unique style than most, that's why its very distinct when he draws something. And I think it's absurd as a Gamer to dismiss a game because of it's art style. People did that with Zelda: Wind Waker and missed out, and it plagues great games like Okami with horrible sales.
2337  Media / Single-Player RPGs / weird hand gestures on: February 19, 2007, 07:39:58 AM
Probably what they do in anime. I really doubt people in Japan go around doing dramatic hand gestures.

And I need to play skies of arcadia.
2338  Site Related & More / RPGFan: The Site / What's with the fake articles? on: February 19, 2007, 04:36:31 AM
Alot of sites were pointing fingers at RPGFan because of the FF13 replacing the White Engine with the Unreal Engine 3 story (Which everyone says is false).
2339  Media / Single-Player RPGs / weird hand gestures on: February 19, 2007, 04:15:33 AM
I've got some hand gestures for you..

Just kidding, but do you mean the sort of thing Tidus does in FFX all the time where hes making a fist and pulling it downwards in an "All-right/Yosh!" type of way?

out of curiosity...am i the only one that just doesnt care about blue dragon? visuals that look like dragonball dont exactly inspire me,and thats basically all i know about the game. however what could get me to get an x-box 360 if they makes games similar to knights of the old republic. i got to play the first one this summer when i was house sitting for my brother and i enjoyed it a lot.

Bioware, the ones who developed KOTOR, are making a trilogy for the Xbox 360 called Mass Effect. Its the most hyped game for the Xbox 360 in 2007 besides Halo 3.

Here's a 720p english subtitled trailer for Blue Dragon

The job system is similar to FF5, and the combat is turn based with 5 characters at a time. You do all the normal RPG stuff, in addition to a few interactive abilities and the power to charge up attacks and abilities (And pass your turn). The turn system is also very FFX, where you see the order using pictures.

There's no random battles, you can attack enemies while exploring and get the pre-emptive strike when the battle starts, and vice versa. You can also fight multiple groups of enemies at once, to different effects (They may help each other, fight each other, etc)

It's basically a solid, promising RPG for Mistwalker's first venture before they start pumping out the 'different' games like ASH, Lost Odyssey, and Cry On. It's got an art style almost everyone can connect with, it's colorful and charming, and the story seems to be light-hearted in general. They made the battles a bit more fast paced than usual so its easier to play, and they're even releasing different difficulties for the game for free via Marketplace (For the actual game, and the schmup segments).
