I've played Infinite Undiscovery for 18 hours now. I feel like I'm getting somewhat close to the end.

digital distribution is fine but trickled releases of old games is not.


Old classics > New games IMO.
1908  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Is 360 the RPG console to get now? on: September 05, 2008, 03:39:49 PM
Quote from: "dalucifer0"
DS easily trumps the 360, but the 360 has original games unlike the massive # of ports on the system.


I disagree. I've liked the 360 RPG's alot more than the ones on the DS and for the simple reason you pointed out: they're original, unlike the massive number of remakes and ports on the DS. With Tales of Vesperia and Infinite Undiscovery out and the upcoming games (The Last Remnant, Fable 2, Fallout 3, Rise of the Argonauts) I don't see my mind changing anytime soon.

I couldn't imagine playing FFXII with gambits on. I turned them off as soon as you could in that game.

I've read in some reviews that there are far too many characters for a game as short as this one. It didn't bother me with Radiata Stories, but this is different, as the 18 are permanent in IU and in RS, most characters are shallow (there are hundreds of characters...)


So far all the charactes I have gotten are really well developed and none of them are shallow. And at some points in the game you get to make 3 parties and they are all battling at once. Its pretty sweet.

you could also bypass automation and manually tell them to heal you in FF12... but it was cumbersome


Well it's definitely not cumbersome in this game.

so its basically a refined and simplified FF12 system?
12 had too many complexities, which didn't always work


Well FFXII was automated using the gambits i.e. when your health got to 25% below or whatever you set it to they would heal automatically. In this game you tell them to heal whenever you feel like it by pressing the Y button

Without even playing it, I know my biggest gripe about the game will be no pausing whatsoever during battle to access the items. Well, if it isn't like SO3 where you really needed to use items every five seconds and your allies do a lot of healing, then it won't matter as much.


You hit it on the nose. You really never need to heal yourself (meaning the player) because you can press "Y" and ask for healing from party members and they will use healing magic on whoever needs it, and if they are out of MP they will use items from your inventory. You can turn off any items you don't want them to use as well. It's really awesome. And if you die, then they will use the revive item on you.

Please, keep giving your impressions here, Dagg and I are playing Vesperia and are both kinda interested in picking this up sometime depending on how people respond, so far Gamespot's review doesn't leave me NEEDING it.


I'll repost what I put in the gaming journal thread for everyone:

I went on an 8 hour marathon in Infinite Undiscovery yesterday. Really liking the combat system and the exploration. It can be hard to figure out where to go at times, but thats a little quibble. I like the voice acting (for the most part) and the story is pretty good (and funny in a good way). It reminds me alot of Radiata Stories, only a little more serious in tone. Also, the graphics aren't as bad as the screenshots imply. The character models are actually quite good.

Since it wasn't ever released here, the only way for me to play it was the illegal way. I played it for about 4 hours and never went back because I got sidetracked with other stuff. It was a fun game though, and if they do remake it I hope it comes over here this time like SO1 for the PSP.

The real truth is that this is just an opinion, and there isn't any real truth to the any games quality.

Just because something's true doesn't mean you need to state it.


Well everluck was saying that I was basically lying because I thought the game wasn't very good, which is crazy. You can't say someone's a liar for not liking a game that you did.

Picking up a 360 tomorrow.  Still plan to get NHL 09 on the PS3, but will probably snag Dead Rising or something cheap with the console when I pick it up.


Dead Rising has some of the worst controls ever. I freaking hated them. The game suffered from it. Not to mention it was a pretty hard game with a terrible save system.

This is what 50% of the people who play it will tell you.

The other 50% will tell you the truth: Dead Rising is fucking awesome.

I've played it for 11 hours now and I really like it. I'd say if you've liked tri-Ace's other games, you'll certainly like this one.
