The big question about DD is - does it at all feel like a WRPG? It seems to an extent that was the purpose, some kind of half breed.
- character creation
- an open world
- physical differences
Are western based features while JRPGs tend to have the opposites:
- linear or semi-open world
- handing you pre-made characters w/backrounds
- a little anime girl is Superman
Yes indeed... it feels as western as western fantasy comes to me... that is also what I took into account when I bought this.... I said to myself, "well klyde, if there is any WRPG your gonna like, it will be a japanese-made one!" LoL
I'm so strange though..... mind you, this is coming from someone who read and re-read every tolkien book I could get my hands on back in high school and used to play table-top.... why I don't have the stomach for the stuff anymore is beyond me..... I like happy, bubbly JRPG goodness is all.... I was seriously considering popping this out and picking my Hyperdimension Neptunia MK2 playthrough back up- THAT IS HOW SICK I AM! hahahaha
EDIT: On a completely different note, for anyone interested, here is a little article on capcoms ambitions in regard to becoming a digital provider....http://www.crunchyroll.com/anime-news/2012/05/23/capcom-plans-to-be-1-provider-of-digital-content-by-2022
For those who don't like clicking links..... here is what they say about DLC
"Continue DLC as add-on content for traditional games. While Capcom has set high goals for mobile and PC gaming, they don't expect packaged software sales to go up. However, after factoring in DLC sales, they expect a 26% increase."
Klyde here is bad at math.... but that seems like a BIG increase in profit as a result of DLC now doesn't it?
