E3: The Last Remnant trailer

E3: The Last Remnant trailer

The Marketplace got updated for the last time for this E3 with lots of quite interesting trailers. Let's start with The Last Remnant, who seems to make an ok usage of the Unreal Engine.

Why is the marketplace being updated with old videos? This and the assassin's creed video are old now, about a month old and they are just starting to put it up.

Looks pretty good to me, but was hoping for a bit of new footage.

well, nice enough graphics, will this be anything more than the usual Squeenix generic JRPG? i doubt it

They hoarded all those videos so they could offer us enough HD content at the E3. ;)

I just watched most of the new trailers and they are all old videos as you said, and I had seen them all before. Especially the Fracture trailer is from ages past.

seeing the new LO trailer I dont think it looks much, or any worse technically, but artistically and everything else it doesnt look as hot....that voice as well...........

Sorry but if you want final fantasy, you have to grab final fantasy itself on the ps3. Nothing is comparable with that.

This just looks good, this is almost fully in-game. (at least in-engine)

final fantasy sucks, boring and dull JRPG, you sit around doing nothing for most the fights, sure they have a good story, but if same as most JRPGS, same reason im staying well clear of Blue Dragon et al
Well, that's not what FFXIII's & Versus XIII's battles will be like. FFXIII's battles should look near equal to the impressive ones in FFVII:AC, not to even mention Versus XIII which I believe will look even better (since Tetsuya Nomura & his team are on it).

Well, I prefer the old, boring FF-system!!
And it's NOT boring, you just have to use your head!!

eh, I disagree...there is a world of difference between the looks of this and ff

concerning the old ff system, ffxii is actually the hardest ff I would say if you take into account some of the optional bosses, the gameplay was a huge improvement

The characters looks far more realistic and natural than in Gears of War. Atleast.

why are people discussing Games like Lost Odyssey, Blue Dragon and Eternal Sonata in here, this should be about The last Remnant obviosuly..geez...

anyway, im imressed with the trailer, being on the unreal engine i think its impressive how it looks silky and not dry and bumpy. perhaps square implemented some of their own technology into it. look at the scene where they show Rush looking out to the field, an impressive number of on screen characters there, and then the face close up looks very impressive, there's a smooth and silky look to the skin texture, his eyes look shiny and expressive, the lips look glossy too. the hair isnt stiff, looks like it has all the right articulation. so im impressed, and this is still very early footage, supposedly textures and models are at the 30% level, so the final game should look more impressive.

After playing blue dragon, and eternal sonata (trusty bell), I can honestly say that my interest in blue dragon is nearly at the lowest.

Its just boring, slow and the damn fight sequences take forever (especially with the corporeal move).

Eternal sonata also has a better art style with mroe attention to details.
Well from someone who has played both games all the way through, Trusty Bell doesn't come even close to being as good as Blue Dragon. (believe me Trusty Bells fighting system is extremely tedious and boring, especially after 20 hours plus)

Trusty Bell has nice art direction but isn't as impressive graphically as Blue Dragon.

This game doesn't have much in common with either of those JRPG's, it looks like you fight on a real time battle feild with turn based attacks, graphics are very good considering the size of the battle area.

nice game :D

I am looking forward to The Last Remnant...the previews have been very favorable so far of this game - the battle system sounds intriguing, I am looking forward to seeing it in action.

And yes, as Xion4360 has mentioned, the textures and models in the The Last Remnant trailer are only at 30%...the final game will look much more impressive.

Also, it sounds to me like Rush is voice by Johnny Yong Bosch (Nero in DMC4...and many other VG and anime characters) - that's cool! :D

While I agree with you that Blue Dragon is a better game, I cant agree with trusty having a poor and tedious battle system. Ive cleared Blue Dragon twice(logged 200+ hours) and am nearly done with my second run through Trusty Bell(70 hours) and I will say that I prefer the battle system of trusty, its very refreshing and typically I hate action based systems.(like FFXII which I though was total rubbish) In anycase, I loved both of those games and look forward to future rpgs from those teams.

As for Last Remnant, I think it looks pretty but with the ability to only play one character, this game is looking to me like its really just a shinier version of a dynasty warriors game minus the historical references.(yes, Im stretching it with historical references in DW games) Hopefully we will see a demo so I dont have to waste money like I did on FFXII(although I wasted money on that after having played the demo and hating it, guess that one was my fault) Square has made nothing but solid garbage lately, hopefully this will change my mind about them and get them back on the road to good titles. (Note im talking the square side of squareenix only, games like star ocean and dragon quest are still amazing.)
