Honestly this game is looking more and more as a 90+ game.

Ill keep updating as new previews comes up

My (locked) thread about how difficulty should be a decision for the developers, not the gamers.

Awesome!



Wouldn't get too excited. Previews always make every game look like a 90+ game.
Not to mention your two links are huge Nintendo sites. Slight bias may be involved.



As previews go by, I'm reassured that this will be an excellent title. Thanks Nautilus for the thread.

Really wanna get into the franchise.

Gamexplain tries to be as unbiased as they can, though obviously that dosent mean that they will be completely without it.So I trust their opinion.The other one though, I agree, but its still a nice opinion.

But since they are releasing previews, I expect other smaller and bigger sites to follow suit, so Ill update accordingly.

The gameplay and world look fine to me as far as what they've shown. I just hope the story grips me like the first one. I really disliked the story of XbX.




Also nice chesticles on Pyra. Damn Nintendo.




Nice ! But we still have a bit more than 2 weeks to wait and that where I'm salty xD

Thanks for the post. I'm strongly considering this game, but I was completely lost in the "Story" trailer - is it going to be super hard to follow, like, say Final Fantasy XIII, or be fairly straightforward? If I'm playing a long RPG, I need to know what's going on.

the story of XBX was good for me until they introduced the characters stories... i was like... WTF these are the finest people they got!????

 

but the world and gameplay was outstanding....if they can improve the gameplay and world/exploration... even if they give me a shitty story i will be ok with it (as long as it is not too repetitive like bravely default-story)
