I actually picked this up partly because I'd heard a few comparisons to Shenmue and partly because of the reaction to the sequel announcement on this board. People seemed genuinely excited, so I thought I'd check out the first one.

Quote from: "Hidoshi"

b) It's not pointless. Were remakes pointless we wouldn't have excellent remade experiences like Lunar:SSSC or Shining Force: RoDD. Think of it as an upgrade if you must, but you have got to get out of this childish mentality that equates remakes as a waste of time.

I believe Lunar 1&2 were both ports, as was Grandia. Not remakes.

Quote from: "Hidoshi"
I don't see how you get off acting this spoiled and stupid, but if you're content with that, do it silently and leave the rest of us with our happiness.

If wanting something new and original is acting spoiled, *especially* on a system that said it was going to innovate gaming, then fine, I'm "spoiled".

Enjoy paying for the same game for the ..... sixth time now?

Do we really need a remake just for the novelty of hearing Cecil with a squeaky teenage voice?No.
If someone can't get past the graphics, fuck 'em. Let them miss out.
Don't waste time, money and resources just because someone is a graphics whore.
I'd rather see something new with a riff on the battle system than endless, *pointless* remakes.

So yeah, color me impressed. This isn't just a remake, it's like a whole new game.

Then why call it FF IV?
That's exactly why remakes are pointless. It's just cashing in on nostalgia.

I'm fine with it coming out on PS2, especially if it boils down to a choice of PS2 or not at all.

And yeah, FES would be nice...but I'm not betting on it.

Are you surprised?  It's a proven fact; no one reads the actual site, only Joystiq.

Jesus Christ. I apologised already.

And to be fair to the guy, I'd rather get a range of opinions from people who have played it than base a purchase on one review.

I picked this up recently too, but haven't played it yet.

Because my boomark takes me to the forums and skips the front page. Sorry.

Joystiq is reporting Persona 4 to be released next year, possibly to tie into the upcoming anime. Also says it will be a PS2 release.

Not as bad as I expected, but what the hell was that ending?

what in god's name are you talking about?

1. Before the boss battle in Warcadia, you do NOT have to fight those guys. You can run clear past them. In fact, I would recommend you do that since...

2. They're not that hard. I cleared them out, and I think I only had to do the boss battle in Warcadia twice. Who are you on as now, Ellen or Keats? If Keats, make sure you have his big boost/rage energy ready to go for the boss. If Ellen ... well ... hope you're good with the guard button.

I was playing as Ellen when I was so frustrated. It's not that they're particularly hard, it's just irritating because you are constantly getting hit when there are more than two creatures on the screen and you're trying to capture one. It's inevitable.

Quote from: "Ramza"
My apologies that you're bad at this game. You should be taking the time to check the picture guide book, learn the elemental attributes of the monsters you're pulling out, and if that's too much for you, just check on gamefaqs real quick to see what it takes to clear the boss in Warcadia.


I've cleared the boss. I'm not bad at the game. It's just that the game can be quite cheap if there are more than a couple of monsters on the screen.

Well, there was supposed to be news on SO4 at TGS, but we got squat.

X months later and we still have nothing.  I'm starting to think that the game is going to get a big CANCELLED soon.

I mean, Jesus, how long does it take to choose where a game is going?  It has very few choices of systems to play on...

wouldn't be surprised to see it on DS.

Oh hell yes.

I only wish Edge of Sanity were putting out more CDs.

I have really mixed feelings about it.

Love the art, voice acting, music and story.

I like the way they implemented the SixAxis.

I *really* am starting to hate battles.

The problem is, and it's happened twice now, that right after you get to the save point before the boss, you are forced to run through a room and battle.

It's not just a little battle either. Both times I have been overwhelmed by about 15 creatures or so - some small, some big.

There are so many that while you're trying to capture the ones you've hit, other ones just walk right up to you and pound the shit out of you because you're completely helpless while you're capturing creatures.

Some of the larger creatures force you to perform certain actions with the controller before you can capture them. For example, I'm on Chapter 3 and I have to move the controller side to side and get the creature's soul standing perfectly straight, instead of leaning to one side.

While the creature's soul is standing upright, it sucks out it's lifeforce. Once it's life force is gone, you can capture it.

Problem is that I am repeatedly getting the shit kicked out of me by the horde of other creatures in the area with me.

And if I get hit? The creature's life force goes back to full and I have to start the process all over again.

Oh - did I mention there's *no* way of healing yourself?

It's extremely, extremely frustrating and I'm on the verge of giving up. I can't remember the last time I died so frequently in an RPG. To be fair, it's usually with the girl, Ellen, but there's the other problem. The game just seems really unbalanced. I'm really starting to hate playing with Ellen, even though her story is more interesting.

Definitely a disappointment for me. Should've bought Assassin's Creed.
