Fragile shows itself again

Fragile shows itself again

Famitsu still had some screens of the videogame Fragile developed by Namco-Bandai exclusively on the Nintendo Wii. I was wrong when I described it as a "dungeon-crawler", in fact the correct term is, according to the press release, a "ruin exploration role-playing game". I'm asking myself seriously if the goal of the game is to find a water source using this wooden stick.

Is that a guy or girl?

Guys don't wear dresses... At least, most do not.

Well the environments don't really look like typical dungeons, and I don't see many monsters... So if this is more along the lines of adventure/puzzle, then I'm definitely sold.

It's a girl by the way (dress is a dead giveaway!)

I like that wooden stick :) - art direction of the game seems really good.

Not Enough, to decide shit.

too much cartoony Silent Hill... too little RPG.

Some footage, please.

I wonder what percentage of videogames have toilets / urinals.

I think it'd be cooler if the title was "Dowser".

Wrong, this game is being developd and published by the same publisher who Eternal Sonata had, it's not being made by teh same copmany.

Eternal Sonata is a Tri Cresendo game, this is an Bandai/Namco game.

It's a guy, and his name is Seto. It's not really a dress he's wearing as more like a pull-over overcoat of some sort, and has pants on underneath. Not that it's easy to tell but whatever.

Pretty sure it's a girl, just look at the first trailer and the voice is 100% female.

Wow, i can't believe I almost fapped over a guy...

It's not unheard of for girls to play the role of young boys. Also in the trailer the voice uses the masculine form of addressing himself. But girls that have strong personalities also tend to use masculine speech so it's possible the character is a girl and for story purposes you don't really know that yet. But who knows. Barely anything out about this game.

    amerakindesi @Tiz: who is joe staten? I agree with your point though (9 minutes ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz If Joe Staten is working on H6, then they have a lot less to worry about as he can steer Halo's cinematic direction very well. (4 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz @amerakindesi: I think the planets are aligning quite nicely for Halo 6. They don't have to worry so much about multiplayer save for map design. Now they can focus efforts on the campaign. (4 Hours ago)

    aphex187 Best Xmas game evah! :D [url] (5 Hours ago)
  • amerakindesi
    amerakindesi @Tiz: halo definitely relies more on individual skill, because every one is essentially the same character. halo is a still a great idea of a game. i hope they improve on "halo" for 6 (5 Hours ago)
