The Last Story
From Final Fantasy creator!
So excited for The Last Story!
Thank you to Operation Rainfall and XSeed games!
If you have not yet go preorder Xenoblade Chronicles!
One more game Pandora's Tower!
Among the best games of this generation
Even if you aren't an RPG fan, this game is amazing. The gamestyle is a mix between a classic RPG and Legend of Zelda. You control your character freely in real time (so it's not turn-based), but you can also tell the other characters to use certain attacks. If that's not your thing, then you can just let them fight on their own.
The story is amazing as well, perhaps one of the best I've come across. There is a love story (not completely original, but that doesn't diminish it), fighting, betrayal, political corruption, adventure, and a desire to uncover a deep secret hidden through time. There are a number of "SAY WHAT?!?!?!" moments in the game too.
I absolutely recommend this game to anyone who likes action and a good plot.
The Last Story Wii
A trailer made by Hironobu Sakaguchi himself!
The Last Story comes out in Jun, 2012
If you havent yet you should also preorder Xenoblade!
I imported both Xenoblade & The Last Story. Amazing games. Plan to support the US version as well.
I hope we get a LE similar to Pal.
This game is a perfect game for all gamers.
This game is good for people who like to play Gears of war Final Fantasy and The Legend of Zelda. It combines all these games in one to make a game that get you on the edge of your seat every step of the way.
The Wii is really going out with a bang.
This game has had it's release date pushed back more times than I care to admit but that's making me want it that much more. However, XSeed has officially announced the release date on their main website so I doubt it will be pushed back any further. The last release date before pushing it to August was set on the same day as Kingdom Hearts 3D. Kingdom Hearts is one of my all time favorite series and even dropped the extra cash for the Mark of Mastery edition and yet I was still holding more anticipation for The Last Story than Kingdom Hearts. However, I did notice something that Game Stop forgot to mention about this game on their webpage. Aside from the soundtrack you get from pre-ordering, XSeed is distributing all first print copies of The Last Story in a special box bundled with a 40 page soft cover art book. It's basically meant to reward everyone who bought the game at launch. I'm not sure why Game Stop didn't mention that considering it would help push up pre-order sales. So by pre-ordering it, you're getting a special edition of the game for no extra cost.
Just Finished - All Time Favorite RPG
I got my hands on a copy of the European release a few weeks ago and I've been playing it nonstop since.. After being a tiny bit let down with some features of Xenoblade, I wasn't totally sure if I would enjoy this game as much as I wanted to. Boy was I WRONG! This is absolutely, positively the greatest RPG I've ever played. I have to rank it above all the Final Fantasy games even, which I am a huge fan of as well. The characters are perfect, the battle system is perfect (using the classic controller at least, I didn't try the nunchuk controls) and the graphics are simply stunning, especially for the Wii. The multiplayer mode is really fun too, and there are lots of "auras" you can get from battling online that will enhance your characters. :D I'm about to begin my second playthrough (it lets you keep your stats and playtime for this) and I cannot wait for the newly announced soundtrack along with the artbook for when I get my U.S. copy. I was blown away by The Last Story, hope you lot are too! We've got an instant classic here =] ps.. be sure to get the invisible dye in your sidequests xD
I Go Where Hironobu Sakaguchi Goes
This preview goes out to all my brothers who love a great Japanese rpg and Sakaguichi is the best their ever was and the best their ever will be. I supported his work on the older Final Fantasy's, the best Final Fantasy games I might add. Square Enix lost their star quarter back and it shows more and more anymore. But this post isn't about them this is about the greatest developer that ever lived.
I played and loved Lost Odyssey it was so refreshing to play a game that felt so original Final Fantasy to me. And I expect no less from the last story the man just breathes quality games. I ask everyone to support him and Mistwalker this game almost didn't make it too us in North America. Lets make sure such a idea never crosses their minds again...Lets make sure the father of Final Fantasy keeps making us awesome games with great stories.
Renewed Interest In Japanese RPG's
I left another review earlier but after I beat it I would say I have a deeper understanding and appreciation for this amazing title. So everyone, ignore my other review. The graphics are amazing for the Wii although some of the textures are a little grainy. The story, although very cliche at times was enveloping and engaging. The characters are very likable and well developed. The gameplay shines in this game. The combat is very satisfying and avoids button mashing by eliminating the need for an attack button! The the strategy and the action mix well together in order to form some amazing and bizarre STRACTION game or something. The music in the game of course is phenomenal being composed by Nobuo Uematsu. The voice acting is surprisingly strong for a JRPG which usually have the worst voice acting possible. Over all this was an amazing game that I would highly recommend. And even though the multiplayer seems like it would just be a cheap gimmick attached on, it is actually very fun!
One More Day to Wait?
I just called a few of my local Gamestop stores and they all told me that this game ships 8-14 (Tuesday) but wont be available for pickup til 8-15 (Wednesday). I was excited because they are having a midnight event for Darksiders 2 and was hoping to pick up both, guess not. Hopefully this will save some of you a trip.Thanks!
