Tales of Innocence's field screens look nice ... the battle scenes less so. I guess they can't just make those too detailed, because they'll have a lot of different characters (party members + enemies) in action.

I'm not sure if it's just my good mood built up from successively staring at DS' Awesome Overload of Dragon Quest IV, ASH, Tales of Innocence, and (to a slightly lesser degree) Final Fantasy IV, along with PSP's contribution of Tales of Rebirth, but even Summon Night's catching my interest now. Support system, looks like some kind of action RPG, seems to have loads of characters... In any case, it's on my list of games to pay attention to.

On a more serious note, these games look great, obviously. ASH is the most exciting to me of the lot -- I like the premise of the story, love the descriptions of the gameplay, it has my favorite game composer and one of my favorite game artists, and the visuals look wonderful. So, so excited for this one.

I like that they're using the DQ8-styled world map in the Dragon Quest IV remake. The FF4 character models look nice (especially in cutscenes), and it's good to finally see Edward and Yang.

The GBA Summon Nights were pretty decent, so hopefully Twin Cross is good.

Mm, yeah. I didn't like the original much either, but I've got my fingers crossed the sequel will turn out better. It does sound like some of the main complaints I had with the first game (lack of unique characters, annoying law system, class/skill redundancies) are being fixed, so... here's hoping.

I like the design of the new chick in these scans (though I guess that's balanced out by my absolute loathing of Cid's character design).

How much info has been released on ASH? From the screens, it looks like a hybrid of Fire Emblem and more traditional RPGs.

If it's anything like FE...:D :D

- edit -

Ethel, do you mean DQVII world map? I prefer the DQVIII style map to pretty much any other overworld ever, but the DS probably couldn't do it justice. I love the DQVII style though, and it fits portables so much better than 3D IMO.

My other main problems - other than those you mentioned, and the severe balance issues - were difficulty and lack of permanent death (except in the JAAGD or whatever it's called). I doubt they'll bring back permanent death in all locations considering the first was supposed to be more of a 'casual' SRPG, but I hope they definitely fix the difficulty. Whenever my territory would be attacked, I'd be so frustrated 'cause it was a pointless waste of time since the enemies gave nothing worth fighting for and were the easiest enemies of all time. And so it was just boring time to preserve the territory.

out of the DS games....FFIV is by far the most interesting...I heard they were adding in some aspects of the plot that were originally omitted...this is excellent news as, although the game was great, it was pretty short, and its plot felt compressed

It is a mix of strategy and traditional RPGs. You move parties (represented by a single leader unit) across a grid and then engage in battles where you select commands from a menu.

Sorry, I guess I didn't speak too clearly. Not the actual Dragon Quest VIII explorable overworld -- just the actual map itself. I like the design of it, how the mountains and water and forests are all illustrated, and so I'm glad they're carrying that design over in this game.

Yeah... hopefully it'll be more challenging than the original game, but I'm not counting on that. As long as the other problems all get fixed, though, I'll be okay with that.

They are trying to fix it a bit, you no longer gain experience in battle so it's spread evenly amongst the party afterwards, not sure if this system will work well though. It's the one thing I'm hoping works well because it sounds like it could fix all the balance issues with the game or completely ruin it.

Damn, my pc is broken but I had to log in to thank yugi and zell for these awesome scans. RPG overload finally. When will a console have a good rpg lineup since start? :lol

DQIV looks adorable, I'm so waiting for this trio DQ to arrive (in spanish) to Europe so lets pray SE is doing localizations rather quickly, I don't want to wait until 2011.

ASH certainly looks interesting, although it doesn't look as good as the 3 screens released years ago I like more this style. Nintendo publishing though, I hope they improve their speed on localizations...

FFIV surprised me, looks far better than I remembered...kinda sad I can't get excited since I just played FFIVa on DS. Well, maybe thanks to localization taking its time I could get excite for european release.

The Tales games look dissapointing in comparison....a re-release, a port, crappy-looking spinoff and a new tales with B-team behind (better than F-team Dimps though, although still outsourced). It doesn't help that I certainly dislike the approach they take with tales on DS. Well, since they want to keep with 4-5 tales a year I hope the next 'batch' is more interesting.

Naruto in overkill mode...and they aren't putting PS2-GC numbers anymore...

Damn, Crisis Core looks like it wants me to pull my eyes out waiting for SE european release, if the game quality is on par on the work they did on the graphics....damn! I want it now! :(

Square, Enix, Namco, Bandai....no one else doing RPGs these days? TGS can't come soon enough :D


pd: I want my pc back! :(

You want translations? They'll probably come out here in Europe when we get the DS2. And that's if we're lucky.

Cecil's render looks like they went Nomura on it. Otherwise, the game looks gorgeous.

Still not feeling the ASH cast or art. Those two new female knights look great, though; too bad the main character didn't look more like that and less like the <tits> </tits> jpeg. Gameplay looks delectable; battle map with first-person fights. I hope it's streamlined and paced well. A lot of games that go that route end up too slow or montonous.

Crisis Core continues to exceed my visual expectations. The gameplay better be "Not Crap™".

The other CG renders look like the original Amano designs, so I'd expect Rydia to look like that as well.

Ah thanks a lot. I wish they would bring this to the Wii though. Their PoT games on the GBA/DS have been awesome. It only makes so much sense to make a tennis game on the Wii, let alone PoT of all things.
