TGS07: The Last Remnant trailer

TGS07: The Last Remnant trailer

Looks like I might be done with the videos today (yeah, right) with this trailer of The Last Remnant. It's doesn't look bad at all, but the story seems to accumulate clichés.

in motion, it definitely looks a lot better than i was expecting. as for the story, well, pretty much all JRPG these days are cliche'

Very nice. It's looking much better to me now than when they first showed it.

All I hear is a whiny little Shinji Ikari, in a different setting. :P

Can't say I have my hopes held high for this one. Will most likley turn out average just like all ther other games Square Enix creates that isn't called Final Fantasy...

This looks REALLY REALLY GOOD! DO WANT!

besides the obvious gameplay scenes, there are parts of those cutscenes that look almost too good for me, the character with the hat..idk its just so impressive...anyways, the square guy said this was completely real-time and on the xbox 360..

"Oh well, better not play any rpg anymore now.." Ya right. This is as good as every other (good :P) jrpg.

That looks great, but what about Europe? It says simultanious release in Japan/North America... Come on Square Enix.

Oh, well.. I just hope we won't have to wait ½ year...

Yeah, graphics are stunning, but the style... :S
I like more what Sakaguchi does with Mistwalker right now. Since FF IX Square Enix didn't really add anything to the FF series (maybe some gameplay variations). Sakaguchi-san's current work is far more inspired than what they did to his old baby.

"The time has come to awaken"

I'm awake! i'm awake!

Must buy for me being a big jrpg fan.. The artwork already sold me, seems to have a good story and classic rpg battles..

and who is that guy towards the end? Can't wait

Looks better than the last batch of media, still looks like another Drag-on Dragoon (not gameplay-wise, obviously).

I think the game is looking good and has a lot of promise. visually it has improved since last screens i have seen. I was wondering Blim if ya got any word on the Infinite Undiscovery trailer? thats another one i am waiting to see. seems to be a big media lock out on that one.

The actual gameplay looks suprisingly good, and yes where is that UI trailer.
Commented on 2007-09-21 00:26:55
Not bad at all.
Commented on 2007-09-21 01:07:29
Looks Great, gameplay and characters look cool too

good lord, some people are way to sensitive. the official post says something about cliche's and i shared my opinion. get over it.
Commented on 2007-09-24 09:19:43
looks impressive...and it would look even better if they remove the whole plot about saving his sister...some of the voice acting is terrible as well

The developers have stated that The Last Remnant starts out like a "normal" RPG, but the story will soon shift and stand on its own. They also mentioned that they will keep those common Japanese RPG clichés out of the story...sure, we will all have to wait and see if they stay true to their words; however, at least we know they acknowledge (are aware of) the clichés present in too many Japanese RPGs.

The TGS trailer is fabulous! The voice acting sounds very convincing so far.
David's English accent suits him perfectly.
I really like the two-heroes aspect of the game (Rush & The Conqueror)...

Oh, and the U3 Engine shines!...the final version is going to look even better!

Another thing, The Last Remnant is originally done in English; woot!
I think that is the reason why a simultaneous Japan/NA release is even possible.

    KORNdog that's my understanding of it anyway based on the little i've read about it. seems like it'll happen though. (2 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog less risks (not like ubi are particualrly great in that regard anyway) and just barrier for them to do their job. (2 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it would be a conglomerate and that can be creatively very limiting if they don't fully understand the industry they've just dipped their toe in by buying a major publisher. (2 Hours ago)

    Sdarts Also, for the first time in BioWare's history, they are finally using full facial capture to record the actor's performance. Plus its the first time the Mass Effect team is using the Frostbite engine. (2 Hours ago)

  • nostradamus
    nostradamus @Moonwalker: well, i'll on a leg and say its a "lie". It seems on par with DA:I, and if they think thats fine for a reveal trailer, then it doesn't bode well for the final product. (2 Hours ago)
