That charecter is from the character creation mode, you create your own character and have him as one of your party memebr, also you can play with that character as your avater in online mode.

Looks superb, I prefer an art direction to Unreal Engine.

Becuase there just isn't a compromise between those two.

The AA is fine, game looks to be coming along great. Hope it doesn't take too long to come state side.

I like the art direction too, really can't wait. I am hoping Japan gets a demo so I can at least try it.

I don´t like the main character... but in general, art direction is nice. Interesting game for sure, Im glad to see a great j-rpg coming to PS3 (I don´t have a PS3)

There isn't a compromise between "art direction" and the "Unreal Engine?"

I happen to think it looks pretty good. I like the pic that looks like a water cooler moment in the woods. It appears that some of the textures look smeared or little textures at all, but if the graphics are clean and the gameplay and story are epic, then I'm sure it will be a winner. It's too bad that I don't own a PS3, but it's good that both consoles are getting great games to make it your worth for buying one or the other.

This is easily my most anticiapted PS3 game next to God of War 3.
If it wasn't for these two games (along with the fact PS3 can play Blu-Ray's), I would have sold my PS3 along time ago.
None the less, here's hoping we saw more exclusive games of this calibur in the near future.

Textures look bland, and the rundown of the central plot i heard was...... Holding out hope tho....
Commented on 2008-10-13 21:02:43
i like the look of it, but its nothing im excited for, not a fan of JRPG's tbh. will probably rent it whenever it gets released over here

Surely FFXIII is more anticipated than this? Sure its coming to Xbox360 but if it wasn't, id sure as hell as buy a PS3 for it.. but not this sadly.

I can't help but feel most of the hype for this game is coming from desperation. A few of the features seem pretty neat, but I'm not quite seeing why some people are being completely blown away, and I don't see the game coming out anytime soon.

The graphics certainly aren't impressive (not that it's an issue for me).
Commented on 2008-10-13 21:28:53 In reply to daikide
unless they push it back they've already confirmed it to be coming out in december.

maybe some of its desperation, but are you going to be one of those ppl that claim MGS4 (or any PS3 game) was only good because of desperation? it looks as genuinely good as any other jrpg thats been put out there to date. and its coming from a wellknown dev thats made a bit of a name for themselves in recent years.

its as much of a reason for hype as all of mistwalker's games getting sold simply because MS's ads said "made by Sakaguchi! made by Sakaguchi!!"

certainly from a jrpg perspective, it has a lot of features which are pretty interesting and it'll be interesting to see how they work it while staying in the realm of jrpgs.

looks pretty bad. hate everything about it.

WOW that penultimate pic is amazing and thats online.

Those are some of the worst visuals this generation,
i am really dissapointed in Level 5

Maybe Sony pushed them too hard to have it for holiday in japan, i can't believe they pulled so terrible visuals on PS3

As for the gameplay, frankly Level5 has lost it altogether, i have never seen a worst playing JRPG, that slow dull thing belongs to a MMO, and i avoid MMO because of the generic boring worlds and combat

In short

Sony

"you WILL release the game in time for holiday, at least in japan, and with a MMO mode to counter Fable 2 online, or you are history"

Level 5

"but we would need 6 more months to refine the engine to deliver real next gen visuals on PS3, and we should not focus on a MMO mode now"

Sony takes cheque from the table

Level 5

"we were just kidding, releasing it in a few months"


The only good thing is the story and FMV, i may buy it just for those, depends on the other offerings at that point

Generally having played Infinite Undiscovery, it is vastly better in visuals and the combat feels far more exiting, it is behind only in story/FMV

if anything i'd say this looked a damn sight better then IU gameplay wise. IU was a dismal effort when it came to actual design decisions. i honeastly dont see how any JRPG this generation could "top" IU in terms of sheer crapness. it may have looked 'OK', but that was pretty much the extent of praise i am willing to give it, story, cutscenes, design, art style, everything about IU was just bad.
Commented on 2008-10-14 02:02:15
I think most people would agree that the battle system in IU was actually NOT crap...and personally i would much prefer it to the very slow, dull and boring combat system in this game, albeit i give no two S*ts about either game...
Commented on 2008-10-14 02:12:29
i am absolutely fed up and disgusted with the U3 engine, all these games look alike, i.e sould caliber 4, IU, WKC etc etc etc. COME ON IDTECH5, or something else.

Yeah...the aforementioned Bioshock and Mirror's Edge really are indistinguishable from Gears and Army of Two....

About the game


What's up?
  • amerakindesi
    amerakindesi @Tiz: halo 6 should incorporate all the halo species to date. Humans, covenant, brutes, flood, forerunner & also introduce a new species (5 Hours ago)
  • amerakindesi
    amerakindesi @Tiz: halo 5 was a disaster storywise. Only way they can fix halo 6 is to drop that other spartan and focus only on master chief (5 Hours ago)
  • amerakindesi
    amerakindesi @Tiz: i love the anniversary mockups. For the true fans to enjoy the classics with a modern feel. (5 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz Anyway, it's early days. The next time we hear about Halo after Halo Wars 2 will be E3, and it will either be H3: Anniversary or a Halo 6 trailer and my money is on H3: A. (8 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz The H6 campaign I meant. (8 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz @amerakindesi: I liked 4's campaign as well, 5 was a massive misstep and while Joe isn't necessary for the H5 campaign to be good, I think he is necessary for it to be epic. (8 Hours ago)
  • amerakindesi
    amerakindesi To be frank though I loved halo 1, halo 2, halo 3, halo 4 campaigns in that order. 4 was my fav. (8 Hours ago)
