As promised, here is the second part from the video I've done of [eM] -eNCHANT arM-, this time with my first impressions of the game.
A third video may appear in a few days, if the first boss fight is interesting. Update: Low-res version of the video online.
First of all graphically this is definitely not a killer game. It has some nice textures and effects, but it really looks like it's a quick upgrade of a Xbox game to Xbox 360. Nothing screams next gen so far except the nice 720p resolution with antialiasing. It certainly looks better than any jRPG so far (I'm not commenting on artistical stuff here), but that's it.
Gameplay wise this is very old school. Run around, do you objectives, destroy a few boxes to get some free stuff, and fight. Sometimes the camera is free, sometimes in smaller rooms it's fixed and changes only to help see some stuff.
The battle system is your typical grid based system. Move your character, then choose what to do, be it a support power or kick the enemies ass. Of course each move has a certain distance it can be used at, so you have to be placed accordingly on the grid. Well, you know the drill.
I can't comment on the story since I do not understand japanese, but so far from the tone of the dialogs (most are dubbed, but the less important stuff is only subbed) the scenario is still in the "easygoing" phase.
eM looks like a very typical jRPG, with some good but not incredible production values.
@GriftGFX: Looking forward to this one. Was sort of hoping they wouldn't have kept that same Civ5 graphics but whatever works I guess (19 minutes ago)

Tropical freeze so far has unique songs for every level. A job damn well done by Retro. I can't wait to see what is next from them. (53 minutes ago)
Been playing some Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze co-op with my bro. That game is awesome and it looks beautiful too. Plus i loooove the music. Where the first one didn't have much variety in music at all (54 minutes ago)
