Clicky.

I just have to ask... SHOVEL?!

Other than that though, I love the graphics and the character designs. It just needs a non-retarded story this time around.

I can think of worse things to use as weapons in a western-based RPG.  Frankly, I think using a shovel as a weapon is a rather practical idea.

I'm still concerned about the 1 guy, 2 girls setup for the 3 main characters.  I'm hoping it'll at least play out like Skies of Arcadia, where a romantic triangle WASN'T at the center of the plot (and it very easily could have been).  I suppose a romantic triangle it could work if done well enough (Psst!  Multiple endings please!), but I've seen the ploy used so much in RPGs that I'm starting not to care for it too much.

As a girl, I've always hated the lack of closure from the love triangle bullshit.  Yeah they're cute and fun, but also bloody pointless, unless done right (SoA was already mentioned).

Anyways, this game looks great, yada-yada-yada, shovel, blah blah two girls and guy and a pizza place, and I look forward to this because I've loved every single Wild Arms game.

Well, I don't know much about the game yet, but we don't know yet if it'll only have three characters unless it's been explicitly stated already. Not that I mind if it does, I get plenty of eye candy with two characters being hot females. :P

A shovel is a badass weapon.
I'll take one over a sword any day!

It makes me wonder what the names of the weapons will be, assuming there are upgradable/buyable weapons. 'Dirt Encrusted Shovel', '13 Inch Spade Tipped Shovel', 'Bastard Shovel' :P


Anyway, the pics look good, and I really like the designs of the characters.

The male character and the third female look cool, but that one girl looks like a bad cowgirl themed stripper.

The environments look like quite a stand-out. In Wild Arms 3, I didn't like the environments, and I dunno about 4. I haven't played that yet.

The game looks good.  I am eagerly anticipating the title.  Hopefully the game will be localised by someone.

Hey, it worked for Shawn of the Dead.  :P

I'm hoping there are more than three playable characters.  I can't see why they wouldn't since every WA game since the first had 4+ playable characters.  Those three will probably have the most development, though.

And as for Rebecca looking like a "bad cowgirl themed stripper", I'm not sure I'd go that far.  The Daisy Dukes are not working for me, though...

Personally, I'm hoping Michiko Naruke retains more of a presence in the soundtrack this time.  Splitting the work between 3-4 composers ended up producing something that wasn't that bad, but wasn't that great compared to the music from WA2 or 3.  The music is one of my favorite things about the series, so I do hope it comes back up to par.[/b]

Well, Raquel had some big shoes to fill after Maya Schroedinger's awesomeness in WA3 and she barely suceeded.  Who knows?  Maybe the girls will surprise us.

Either that, or there will be a third female PC who will redefine awesomeness.  :P

I was never able to get into the series...  Though one thing I always loved is that they always seem to have a good balance of gameplay and story (something a lot of RPGs seem to have forgotten lately).

Bah.  Lady Harken > Anastasia.  Barely.

Because demonic, scythe-wielding redheads are the win.
