It's coming finally ! Famitsu just revealed a lot of informations about Lost Odyssey, the game engine, the combat system and the playable demo, as well as an awesome screenshot. See more in the news. Update : Full scans added!
The game engine will run at 30 fps, and the character models for the movies are almost identical to the realtime models, which have been checked closely by Inoue, the character designer. We also learn the game will use a command menu driven interface for the combats, we'll get the powers of any enemy defeated, and there'll be no game over, as the main character is immortal. At least, a few words about the demo. It will be available in Japan in early November, it will last about one hour and won't feature anything but the most basic parts of the combat system. No character growth system as well. We can't wait to grab you videos of the game next week, at TGS.
Sometimes the less you know about a character too = more interesting. Like G-Man. He pops up now and again being a creepy bastard. Thats what makes him interesting. (37 minutes ago)
Plus the fact you were messing about with boxes is a good thing, no? Game first, story and characters second is my motto. (39 minutes ago)
@KORNdog: Come on Korn, you know thats a horseshit statement you made. Before Naughty Dog and Bioware with Mass Effect, there was Alyx Vance. She may be a bit dated these days, but back then... (41 minutes ago)
@MrWhite: i guess i missed it. i was too busy running about all over the place throwing boxes around as my mute husk. lol (54 minutes ago)
What's this about Half Life not having decent characters? Seriously? It practically set the bar as far as that went. Alyx, Barney, Eli, G-Man to name a few. (58 minutes ago)

I'm not saying it's impossible that another developer would want to do it and would do it justice. That's just rarely the case when a franchise changes hands. (3 Hours ago)
