BRRRRRRILLIANT! thank you DJ. Finally we get to see the Optima system in action - sounds like a lot of fun!!

I think these videos should silence those who were doubting this graphically. This new level looks SUPERB!

Seriously cannot wait. Over 1 million first day sales, can't remember the last time that happened for a game in Japan (when WKC sold 100,000 first day that was impressive then, but now?). Wonder what the first week sales will be for this game...

Fantasitc job Dj! Thank you so much for sharing!

Im really pleased how the game turned out. Since from the first images and trailers i haven't really dug the art-style that much: Everything is so.."overly designed" right from the characters clothes and weapons down the to the little " treasure balls" - I don't have anything against it per se, but it's just not my cup of tea. - I appreciate the time and effort that has gone in to those designs, but they don't really please my eye. Same thing happend with FF VIII and X.

But what i DO like is that the combat seems really fun and the story sounds interesting enough, althou' the cast of characters don't seem to be instantly charismatic or memorable, once again, purely judging from the design standpoint. But i do hope they are well written, and not so cliched as they seem to be at the moment.

It makes warm and happy in my pants that there is a really good-looking, interesting, J-RPG that seems to live up to the Final Fantasy name coming in couple of months.

the early 2010 is shaping up to be THE best first quartal of game releases ever. Ever.


EDIT: For the love of GOD! Im 4 minutes in to the "Gameplay.4-video" and not once..but TWICE a character has fallen to their knees (the kid actually was on his knees right in the beginning of the video but he got up at some point, so i guess that makes it three times someones knees touched the ground in 4 mins.) in a melodramatic way...I mean, is there something wrong with their legs or is that the ONLY way to emote despair/sadness/frustation in Japanese RPG storytelling ? :)

Gameply video 5 was BRILLIANT with the boss battle ... The effects in the game are amazing!!!
Commented on 2009-12-18 22:07:52
why do these vids have slowdown? I was watching the ice cave gameplay at gamevids and they didn't have the stuttering problem....

game looks really good, I am probably too old for this stuff but I will still buy it :D

Outstanding stuff. Square on form and finally we should get a current gen JRPG with top tier production values.

    amerakindesi @Moonwalker: definitely did not say that. They warn to spend all the money before making the change. I wouldnt want to risk it (0 minute ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker I have only changed it on the Xbox site, i always keep my Xbox console at USA, never changed it. (2 minutes ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @amerakindesi: Doesn't it only mean you can't use the money linked to your USA account for other countries? (3 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @nostradamus: Thought the same regarding the UE4 tech. Looks like Switch won't be too shabby. I'm getting one. Haven't been as excited for a console at launch for a while. (11 minutes ago)
