1  Media / Single-Player RPGs / (Article)Opinion: 2009 - The Last Days of the Japanese RPG? on: December 28, 2009, 01:00:18 PM
Quote
Where have the vital Japanese role-playing games gone? If 2009 was a bad year for the game industry, it was even worse for the heart-sick JRPG fan. Game Developer magazine's production editor - and committed JRPG scholar - Jeff Fleming looks back at the past year of Japanese RPG releases in North America, and finds troubling signs of a genre in decline.]

The post-PlayStation 2 era has not been kind to the Japanese role-playing game. At the start of the decade it was easy to imagine Japanese RPGs taking over the world. Titles like Final Fantasy X and XII, Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne, Xenosaga, Shenmue, Shadow Hearts, Skies of Arcadia, Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker, and Phantasy Star Online were just some of the highlights of time when another new JRPG was added to the stack faster than we could play them.

I played the 360 demo and it seems pretty cool. It seems like you try to set up the best line in order to attack the selected opponent. The longer the line the more attacks you get in.  During a turn you use the X button in order to jump so that you can not only execute aerial attacks but get over objects that are blocking your line of sight. In some cases if you don't jump the object in your way will stop you in your tracks either minimizing the amount of time you have to attack or ending your turn without being able to attack at all. There are some objects you can attack through like walls but most of the time if you don't have a clear shot at the enemy you want be able to shoot them. So make sure to use aerial attacks when necessary.

For gamers in Europe it seems that at least for you the game will feature dual-audio tracks. English and Japanese. I'm think the US release will have the same but I'm waiting for confirmation.

Demo lands on the 22nd for people who have Japanese PSN and Xbox Live gold accounts. Xbox gamers will likely have to wait for someone to upload the demo in order to play.

The story is pretty interesting. I don't think Serah dies, she's a key element of the plot but not in that kind of way.
I think you will end up being right but as one of SE own marketing pictures reveals they sure make it look that way.

It's official
http://i50.tinypic.com/4nssh.jpg

The design of the cover seems to be a compromise between what people in NA are used to and what people in Europe are used to. It being a simultaneous release and all it makes since for them to find a cover suitable for both markets.
11  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: New Information about Final Fantasy XIII on: December 01, 2009, 02:33:01 PM
I thought that was the official box art for everywhere.
It is certainly official for Europe. It very well may be the same cover for NA but I'm just going with what I know for sure to be correct.
Correction: Someone claims to have seen the US box art and it is official that the pics are the official box art for the western market.
