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 Dragonhttp://dl-bluedragon.durasite.net/bd_movie1_hd_en.mov
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).
