The first 10 minutes: [eM] -eNCHANT arM-

The first 10 minutes: [eM] -eNCHANT arM-

[eM] -eNCHANT arM- is the very first japanese RPG to be release on Xbox 360, so I just HAD to check it out as soon as possible. I'll give my more detailed impressions of the game a bit later with the second part of the video, but you can already take a first look with the intro video and the first 10 minutes (with some dialogs cut short).
Update: Low-res versions of the videos online.

I do not understand japanese, but I'm starting to get used to the save/try/reload of the dialogs. You can usually know when you made the right choice very quickly, either by the look of the people you are speaking to, or by the tone of the voices (or by getting a nice game over screen).
It can be tedious, but it works :D

Blim you the man. I know you are playing right now, but based on your initial experience with the game give us a rating 0-100. Don't be afraid to be 100% honest even if it isn't good I'll buy it anyway :)

Looks very cool. JRPGs FTW.

Also since its a bit hard to tell how detailed the game is without having it running on our own 360s give me your take on the graphics so far.. disappointed? Impressive? or just okay?

Looks good, I mean the guys look like girls and the teacher seems to have spilled Ribena on his face but it certainly looks like a next-gen RPG.

Actually, Makoto, one of the two friends (I guess) is a transvestite. I think Makoto is the blonde.

blim you rocks :D hahaha nice technique indeed
Commented on 2006-01-14 12:59:34
I imagine the transvestite will put up quite the fight versus that demon woman since he'll be the only one that doesn't find her remotely attractive =P

Wait how many discs is enchant arm? I remember hearing they were having trouble fitting it on 2 discs and that they'd have to put it on 3, but then they were having trouble fitting it on 3.

I heard a rumor that it had now become 1 disc is this true?

Cool, been wanting to check this out..probably not my type of game, but I'm interested.

To echo the question Optimusv2 brought up--is this game on multiple DVD's or not?
Commented on 2006-01-14 14:02:43
The game fits on 1 DVD. So far except for the intro every cutscene I've seen was realtime.

I agree.. I just don't get the appeal to these kinda games. They bore me to tears.

Me too, but at least it might give the people who like these kind of games their kick, and it might boost 360 sales in Japan (for whatever that's worth, it gives nice braggingrights in a consolewar discussion).. ;)

You know guys, if you are not interested in a genre in the first place, why are you here commenting about it? No one cares.
Commented on 2006-01-14 15:01:13
True, sorry Blim.. I guess I'm just bored I still haven't got my 360.. I've been waiting for over a month now already, it gets to me..
Commented on 2006-01-14 15:06:15

Yup.

My interest in RPGs (especially JRPGs) has been in a slump lately due to recycled storylines and generic characters but hopefully these new RPGs for the X-Box will revitalize my interest.

About the game


What's up?
  • 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. (2 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. (2 Hours ago)
  • aphex187
    aphex187 Best Xmas game evah! :D [url] (3 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 (3 Hours ago)

    docLEXfisti Snatcher was awesome, played it on the European Mega CD (5 Hours ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke @Moonwalker: I agree. Other than the Metal Gear series, he didn't really present something as good. And I thought MGS5 was ultra boring (6 Hours ago)

    nostradamus never played snatcher, but policenauts has a awesome scenario. (6 Hours ago)
