I dunno, it looks almost too good. There's gotta be a catch.
One thing I worry about is the battle system. It looks involved, which usually means slow. It's ok for srpgs, but other things I've seen show it as much more menu driven like a traditional turn based rpg. Then there's that grid...
I'm all for new things, but I want to see how this gets scored. Even that might not tell me anything though.
There was an interview posted earlier comparing the game to Xenogears in story presentation. That worries me too. Xenogears was a great game so I've been told. I even own it, and I've tried to play it at least 5x, but it's just not paced well enough for me. I just remember never really feeling like the game took off fast enough, and there's only so long i'm willing to wait on the runway.
