1996  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Holy Crap. Final Fantasy XIII for Xbox 360 on: July 16, 2008, 10:20:20 PM

I don't see most people sticking to one genre and never play anything else ever.

Oh, and LO sold 200,000 in its first month here.


And 100,000 copies its first week, supposedly. They were definitely better than Blue Dragon's sales. (65,000 first week, and *maybe* 200,000 LTD in the US)

It's a huge game, it'll sell.


There are a lot of RPG series that don't sell well in this country, but Final Fantasy isn't one of them.  Consequently, I suspect there'll be about as many buyers here for the Xbox 360 version as there will be for the PS3.


Then how come I see so many Xbox 360 owners who hate the living shit out of the FF franchise?


Because all they do is play crap like Halo 3 and Gears of War.

A FEW SB rings? He has ONE, where they beat the Patriots. Lost to the Broncos in his attempt at a second one, and to the Giants last year in the NFC Championship.

Looks sweet. Christian Bale FTW!

I have it for the 360 and I will get it for the PS3 as well.



Why?


Indeed. Why? The game isn't good enough to warrant a second purchase for just a few new pieces of stuff that doesn't really affect the game. If you don't have a 360 and have a PS3 though, it's worth a look.

Don't know about everyone else, but I'm *sick* of these games, period.


And I am sick of modern RPGs! But these games I can't get enough of :)

Fair enough.

You know, they did have advance screenings in the US. Iíve talked to more than a few people online who had already seen it earlier this week.

But as to how I saw it; it got an early release here in Australia. I thought it was a bit weird, but I ainít complaining. Kinda makes up for us not getting Wall-E until September.


I see. Thats pretty sweet. Wall-E was great, so it sucks that you guys have to wait so long after us.

So I just came back from seeing this...

It was good. Really good. It lived up to my unreasonable expectations, which is pretty amazing. It was incredibly depressing though.


How the heck have you seen it already?
2004  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Famitsu scan: Dead Rising to be ported to Wii on: July 16, 2008, 10:51:08 AM
I didn't like the 360 version that much. The controls were clunky and the game was only fun when I wasn't following the story and was just doing random crap (ala GTA). I'll keep a look out to see if they improve it, but if they don't I won't be buying.

2006  The Rest / General Discussions / Nintendo's E3 Announcements. on: July 15, 2008, 08:35:32 PM
Nintendo utterly failed at showing anything I was interested in. No Fire Emblem DS, Castlevania: Order of Ecclessia, Tales of Symphonia 2, Madworld, Castlevania Judgement (changed my mind on this one), FFCC: Crystal Bearers, Chrono Trigger DS, DQ DS games etc... I mean there were plenty of games for them to show, and they showed absolute crap. I know there are more games than the ones I wanted to see that weren't there.

Meh.
2008  The Rest / General Discussions / Sony Press Conference on: July 15, 2008, 04:11:24 PM
Well, I thought this one was WAY better than Nintendo and Microsoft's press conferences. There wasn't really any shockers like FFXIII coming to 360, but I was never bored and the LBP thing was really cool instead of using generic charts for their sales figures etc...

That, and being the R&C fanboy I am, the announcement of Quest for Booty was awesome. $14.99 for a new game, count me in. There were plenty of other great games shown too. Especially Resistance 2, which looked amazing.

Underwhelming. Not a single thing I'd give two shits about. Wii's now officially a waste of my money.

Another Nintendo paperweight/doorstop in my home now.


You took the words right out of my mouth. I thought MS Press Conference yesterday was kinda boring, but this blew it out of the water. Worst conference EVER (or at least since I started watching these a few years ago).

Let's be honest, the main reason the PS3 fans are so up-in-arms about this isn't because of possible delays, or even quality hits (which is ludacris, btw), these are just silly arguements to hide the reality that Final Fantasy XIII has become the one of the final justifications for owning a PS3, only to find that this arguement (either to the self, or two others) is suddenly made moot by a mutli-platform release.

I'm sorry to be blunt, but at least for many out there, it is a fairly common reaction. I've been there too: burned by companies and hardware that I trusted, or found myself in the minority-end of a tech war, and felt abandoned by some of the last holdouts.

FFXIII is, truly, the last great PS3 exclusive. Nothing comes close in the RPG community, and even among the general gaming community as a whole, it has been hearlded as one of the final rays of hope. You don't have to love Final Fantasy, or even like it, to be burned by this latest twist. The PS3 is running fairly strong, but after this... what's left? A whole slu of PSP and DS games... that's what.

What can Sony possibly do to take people's eyes away from the elephant in the room?


Three words cross my mind: GOD OF WAR. I still can't wait for the third one. Whatever Team Ico is working on should be pretty awesome as well because ICO and SotC were dominant. I also am waiting on my R & C sequel and Resistance 2 & Killzone 2 look sweet. There's still plenty of awesome exclusive stuff, RPG or not. Disgaea 3, Valkyria Chronicles, and WKS look promising, but they keep getting down played because they aren't FFXIII.
