I think those slide-show like sequences are just placeholders for CG-movies ... those would have been too big for such a demo (even without them it's 1 GB) in my opinion

Some of the enviroments and the main character don't look all that complete (demo!) but the art direction and all those other characters look darn right fantastic.

The game is awesome, I loved the demo. I like those moving comic book style cut scenes, I think they are final Lafiel.

One of those rare occasions where I wish I had a PS3.

Well I just finished the demo and I have NO IDEA what just happened. This game is super bizarre! I think the, um, tree that tended the bar told me something significant so I ran into a forest where imp people tried to kill me. After sucking imp powers out of them I could soon enough roll boulders and stuff and before I knew it I was back in the bar yelling "RANDOM KANJI THINGY!!!!" and the demo ended. :O

It looks incredible though. It's like Eternal Sonata had forests and flowers and this game was like "forests and flowers huh? I'LL SHOW YOU FUCKING FORESTS AND FLOWERS!" *brain damage from colour and fauna overload*


In a good way though. Good brain damage.

lmao

It is a bit mad, I wasn't quite so confounded as you though :o

I guess foreign languages will do that to a person.

that was a boring video :s although very nice models, and thank the lord, real time combat, makes a change to the usual JRPG tripe, still not my thing tho

Looks absolutely gorgeous. I wish you had stayed in the bar a bit longer. It seemed some lovely music was about to start.

Very promising game.

I enjoyed the demo, didnt finish it but it was pretty good. Very nice use of the SixaxiS
Commented on 2007-06-02 22:44:13
Exactly, Myro, the sixaxis implementation is sweeeet. tanoshiminisuru wa kore ga

The demo was very well-done.

I'm really taken to the panel-based cutscenes and prefer them over CG--they're slick and sexy, instead of the rubbery feeling CG cutscenes give off.

Actually, the trailer contains most of the cardboard cutout scenes found in the demo, but in the trailer they're proper animated cutscenes. I'm gonna have to give Lafiel's assessment a nod, because I half suspect the trailer sequences will be what's in the final game.

Just watched the HD video and I gotta say I'm blown away. The only thing better than the visuals is the sound--or lack thereof. I can't stand dialogue in videogames. If this is what the final product will be like I'm onboard.
Commented on 2007-06-03 09:50:59
well I said, wow

Game looks gorgeous. Kenshin is impressed, thanks :p

synce -

I believe the final product is supposed to be dubbed through and through with English as the primary language. Then again, all I have seen of the game so far has been one trailer, the GDC gameplay, and the Japanese demo.

I finally played the demo and it was amazing. Wish there was a jump button, but I like the "dash" button.
