Kingdom Hearts II is out D:  
In the US :P
I'm pretty dissappointed in the camera AI, though. I don't know what they changed between the first and second, but it's not good for me. The first Kingdom hearts game did not make me motion sick or nauseous, but this one does :(
And the horsie guys in Mulanland are pissing me off right now.

Otherwise.. I had a serious fangirl moment when I saw Setzer.. then cried when I saw Setzer-mullet. I really do NOT like Tetsuya Nomura's character designs. IMO, they worked well for FF8, but I haven't liked them for any other game. And I hate what he did to Setzer :(

Gummi ship stuff is a lot more fun in this game, but the constant camera angle chances& pans also make me want to vomit. I love videogames, but the 3-D explosion has been bad to me. I like to be able to move the camera to where I want it to be, and have it always default there. I don't like getting close to a wall, and having the camera jump up& down within the hero's model art. I don't like the camera swinging erratically as I move or target, and I don't like the camera angle sweeping up from the floor. >:(

Technical things aside, the story seems kinda stupid, (even though gameplay is pretty solid) and I'm just waiting for every character in the story to jump up, realize that using disney summons have wiped all their memories, and have them realize they don't exist in the real world after 60 hours of gameplay. Go Square Go!

Oh yeah. And they really dumbed down Grandia III D:
The gameplay on that one is solid, too, but the chick SOOO doesn't look old enough to be the main dude's mom. And the game TELLS YOU what the best move EACH TURN is. That's kind of dumb D: I'm glad you can turn it off, though.

Tales of Eternia(oops) Legendia is very cute. I watched Akuma play a little of both ToL& Grandia III. I think I'd really like the new Tales of game. Going to work on Kingdom hearts until I puke though. I think I have maybe another 10 minutes of getting raped by horsie guys until I lose my dinner. Fucking camera AI
Current Mood: sicksick

They added free control of the camera. Originally you used R1 and L1 to control the camera. Which made me motion sick as all heck.

The game IMO only has about 20-25 hours gameplay. If I skip the cinemas I usually can beat it in around 9-10 hours.

Why would you skip the cinemas on the first time through an RPG? Crackhead D:

I didn't lol. It took me close to 40 watching all of the cinemas and doing all the gummy missions and Sephy. If you skip the gummy levels and play on a starting difficulty of at least normal, you will usually go about 25 hours.

grandia 3 looks tiring. tales of legendia is a bit tiring :(

suikoden 5 has ridiculously labyrinthine towns and a camera angle reminiscent of TRACE MEMORY for DS, but i love love love love love it

awhile ago i saw kingdom hearts 1 for 5 pounds, but knew if i bought it i'd have to commit seppuku :(

Yeah.. Legendia. That silly new Tales of Game. D:
Is Suiko 5 already out? Man, talk about a rush jurb D:

<3 Suikoden V. It is so much love.

Suikoden 5 makes me want to own a US PS2 again. Best one since 2.

D: If it's that good, I'll have to hunt it down.
3 was ok.. and after watching Akuma play through 4, I wanted to gouge my eyes out at all the town textures. They seemed to go backwards in graphics quality in 4, and the hero was stupid.
But if 5 is awesome, I might still have a little faith in the series.
Tactics wasn't really that bad. I got it for Akuma for Chrismas, and watching him play it made me want to try it out.
I saw some screenshots of the battle system for 5, and it looked much closer to the older games, too.

I loved Eternia and have been waiting for Legendia.

Finally got around to the game store Monday night to get it and SH3. I could find both the artbook and strategy guide for Legendia, but of course they didn't have the game.

I cried. But at least I have SH3 to keep me occupied. *sniffles anyhow*

I liked Eternia.. Loved Symphonia.. heard Legendia was kinda weird, though. I don't know. Looks like the same ol same ol, but there's nothing wrong with that when it's a good franchise.

Doh, I'm an idiot. I always say Eternia when I mean Symphonia. O.o Such an awesome game!
