Will play it tonight and I'll post my ever relevant (or irrelevant) thoughts! Nyaa

By the way graphics look great!

I'm playing the 360 version and it looks good! I think it looks the same with the PS3 one but I'm sure there's slightly a difference if I put it side-by-side.

I know FMVs are more compressed and lower res in the 360 but as long as the in-game looks good and plays smoothly, it's good enough.

PS: Looks MUCH MUCH better than Dragon-Age and Oblivion. Japanese developers art style and details are just more pronounced and more masterful IMO.

That applies to all systems, there's no point in stating the obvious and universal as something Nintendo specific and beating around the bush like that instead of responding to most of what I said doesn't help your lacking arguments, it only makes the real motive behind them that much more obvious (as if we couldn't tell already) Happy

Hey Wii do this:

http://gamevideos.1up.com/video/id/28333/bigger

Can't wait to control that with PS Move. Nyaa

Wii doesn't have to do this, I'll be playing the superior version on PC, have fun with your downgrades Nyaa

Not that all the eye candy will make this more than the "filler games" the first couple were over actual classics people will be remembering until well after the next gen but anyway, it's always funny to see people drool over tech downgrades but express such hostily for a system that has tech downgrades compared to their preffered.

Yeah, fucking double standard assholes. All of you! ALL!

Nyaa

PC to PS3/360 is not the same to PS3/360 to Wii. Come on, what kind of argument is that.

I don't go around bashing the PS360 except to make this point to people who unfairly bash the Wii based on that, as if it can't offer great gaming Happy

Of course it can offer great gaming, it could have offered even better gaming if Nintendo did not limit themselves so much.

 What?! Did we not have this discussion before? And did we not come to the conclusion that a powerful Wii would be a GC2 like success? Did we not determine that Nintendo's design philosophy required a cheap Wii?

Three disks. And it's odd because not all of them are maxed out with data. The first disk only fills 5.8 gb I think.

Well, I played a few hours of FFXIII and here's what I think so far:

Pros:

  • Graphics are great. The 360 version looks fantastic, although FMV cut-scenes do look low-res. SE still did a fantastic job in porting it to the 360. I'm sure the PS3 version kicks this bucket to the curb, but it's still mightily strong enough to hold water.
  • I like the battle system. It's fast, doesn't drag, and the animation is great! But it is feeling like a one-button masher right now. I'm sure it'll open up and get better later on.
  • Sazh is pretty funny and him and Lightning are my favorite characters in the game so far. The voice actor for Sazh is the best and I like his personality and one-liners.
  • The animation and character models are excellent! Dragon-Age pales in comparison to Square-Enix's subtle touches in these characters in the way they move, speak, gestures, and interactions. Dragon-Age animation looks like Legos stop-motion animated by a five year old compared to FFXIII's masterful animation. Harsh words, but it's true! razz.gif Fable 2 on the other hand does have good animation and the imagination of a good fantasy.

Cons:

  • The game is very linear, but it's like FFX, so I'm used to it.
  • The writing is pretty terrible, to be honest. Snow's lines are just cringe-worthy. Who says things like, "I'm the hero," in this day and age!? This isn't a 80's Saturday morning cartoon for crying out loud!
  • People say Vanille is annoying, but she's not that bad. Snow is worse, IMO. I mean, is this SE's idea of a cool character? Whatever! At least he doesn't look metro and looks like a dude! razz.gif
  • This is where Dragon-Age is stronger in that the open-ended world, writing, and being a true RPG. Although which game one would prefer obviously is based on personal preference. Luckily I'm enjoying both for the different experiences they bring.

Final Thoughts:

Overall, the game is enjoyable but I already know that it won't end up being my favorite FF in the series. But it's definitely not the worst *cough* FFVIII *cough*. The character of Lightning makes the game worth playing because she's a refreshing change to the bleach-blond male characters in recent FF games. FFVI will always be my personal favorite and it's the first FF with a female lead. So seeing Lightning as another female lead is what captured my interest the most.

The game is very accessible and I can't say whether that's a bad thing or a good thing. Why? Because the game is relaxing to play. You don't have to deal with the complicated mess in WRPGs for instance. It's one of those games where you just want to play it because you want to kick-back on a weekend or a sleepless night. After hours of playing Battlefield Bad Company 2, throwing a angry fit because of sniper spammers, cheap deaths, and getting kicked by EA's crappy servers, playing FFXIII afterwards is a nice change of pace to cool down. It's kind of a good feeling and therapeutic.

It kind of is like watching a movie. And I know I criticized the game of being as such, but playing it through, it's not as bad as I thought.

I will say this. Although the game could've been better, especially after 4 years in development, it's still worth playing as a FF and JRPG fan. Even though I won't take back or eat my words of concern or criticism toward Square-Enix, I do admit that the game does enough to keep me interested to play it through. That may sound like a contradiction, and I'm not hating on the game. But it's good, not great, but still a game I'm glad I bought, let's just say.

I think the game is a 9/10 just because the art, graphics, visuals, presentation, animation, character models are top-notch, and perhaps the most beautiful game I've played this gen. But when I brake it down as a JRPG...it's about a 7 to me, because it's not a game but more like a...I hate to say this again...a movie...but a good one, in a anime sort of way.

So a 9 because it's a FF game, but a 7 because it's really not...if that makes sense!

But at the end, because it's still a game I'm enjoying...I see myself giving it a 9. cool.gif

Just for an update for those of you who were wondering, the DSi did NOT survive it's bath. As near as I can tell, the battery was shorted out when it wet or something having to do with the charger. If I plug it in to be charged, the light flashes for half a second and then goes dark.  

I believe the system is otherwise still functional, as not too long after I first dried it off, I did turn it on and was able to scroll through all the DSi games I had on it, but the battery was near dead at the time so I didn't mess with it too much. ANd now it just won't turn on or charge.

So now I'm off to find out if Nintendo would fix it or if I'm better off just buying a new system.

Wow, 6 pages to read.

Nothing like a bit of controversy to spark debate. Happy

I am talking about FPSs only not the state of third party games on the Wii. GG asked why major developers like Valve are ignoring the Wii, cause they don't want to waste their time on old tech, Valve is cutting edge, Valve is pushing the envelope. Two of the major selling points for a FPS are great graphics and online gaming and the wii sucks at both. Why did CoD sell, cause it IS CoD but even that was a sad fraction of what it sold on 360, on a far SMALLER user base. The Wii will never be a good FPS console.

Fuck man, Valve can port down an amazing looking PC game made for better tech in Half Life 2 down to the Xbox 1. And you played it on that system. Nyaa

Let me guess what you're thinking here: "I had no choice, I didn't have a high tech PC". Well yeah and there are people out there who don't have a high tech PS3, but they do have a Wii.

Valve wont even make PS3 games either. It's just sad.

COD sold a sad fraction? We learned from a Treyarch dev that Wii version of COD3 was ported by 4 people from PS2 assets and it went on to sell over 1.3 million. Profit and loss, budget vs sales. Basic economics? We have four FPS that have sold over a million, add in other shooters like RE and we have six shooters, if they cost a quarter to make of an HD FPS and sell four times less. Do the math.

Economically, it's viable. Design wise its viable.

Wii is not in first place, woah. Must have console shortages or something. razz.gif

360 wins the month, nice numbers. This is February and look at the numbers all three are pulling in, crazy. DS is in it's own planet, it can't be touched.Wow, think about this, GoW 3 and FFXIII might push the PS3 and 360 over Wii next month. Of course Mario Galaxy would be around the corner to fix that but man did things get interesting quick.

It's not that unusual for Wii not to win each month, even though sometimes it feels like it. How are we suppossed to get the Darth podcast groaning without it though?  

Remember at the end of last year, the final 2009 analysis showed that like 75% of Wii hardware was sold in the final three months of the year and the yearly sales were only 5% down from 2008. Meanwhile all year you had people making comments about adjustments in expectations and all that. Then at the end it was like.... oh.

I stick to the 5 year lifecycle though and so I expect and want a new system at the end of 2011.

SteelAttack said:

I wonder what were the numbers for Endless Ocean 2. Fucking heathens, I'll have to make it up by buying TWO copies of it whenever I see it.

Assholes.

That Killer Whale who killed the Seaworld trainer... it affected sales. That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it.

PC to PS3/360 is not the same to PS3/360 to Wii. Come on, what kind of argument is that.

Where were you trashing Xbox 1 when it was getting all the PC ports? You know those snobby PC guys on gamespot that you tried to ignore/were jealous of? Well you've essentially become one of them. Nyaa Just kidding D, I hope I haven't come across as aggressive or assholish, in any of this. Now that Iga has become an English hating bastard, you're the only friend I have left!

Whoever guessed it would have done 30k?

Somehow, I don't think it's a far-fetched figure. I don't really picture the EO games as being too front-loaded. Do we have any figures on the first months of the previous one? I think those games sell at a slow rate, but consistently thanks to word of mouth and favorable e-reputation.

Don't get me wrong, I'd love to see it sell as much as possible, but I'd be pretty shocked (and glad) if it broke 50K.

It's a slow burner, the original just came up shy of a million sales worldwide. Unfortunately in Europe at least they jacked up the price of the sequel.

Wait unless you were talkign about third party. There was too much masturbating and GG trying to clean away all the semen on the last few page for me to be able to understand most of what was said! Nyaa

WTF man? LOL You'd think we were back in the Demon's Soul thread.

To answer aspro, I was finishing Heavy Rain and playing some Plants vs Zombies. I might make a thread on it. Very cool game.

Of course it can offer great gaming, it could have offered even better gaming

That applies to all systems, there's no point in stating the obvious and universal as something Nintendo specific and beating around the bush like that instead of responding to most of what I said doesn't help your lacking arguments, it only makes the real motive behind them that much more obvious (as if we couldn't tell already) Happy

Yeowch. We don't post like that around these parts bud. Well except for that ass Iga. Nyaa

(I wuv u Karate man!)

I can see what Vader means, I think everyone would like to wii to be on the same level as other systems, its just that I can see why its the tech it is and why its priced the way it is and why something that was so risky, almost had to be brought out at the level it is and the price it is. We keep going back to this hypothetical situation where the Wii was released at a similar tech and similar price to the other systems.

(Oh if only Nintendo had been so forward thinking)

And the question keeps coming back: would it have sold as well? And my answer is always that the success was part and parcel of the price point which they could only acheive with the lower tech, combined with the marketing and new fad aspect. What if for instance the PS3 had launched with Move? We looking at $699 price tags here? Or condering that this tech was newer and more expensive 4 years ago, more?

I would actually pay money to prevent someone from playing those games.
