This is new to me.

The beginning of the movie reminds me of Lost Odyssey. Then I found it hilarious when the dragon scorched the Eoreza. It was like Yoshi was like F-this world, we're making a new one.

Like I said in another thread I'm not as excited as I was when 1.0 came out, but with 2.0 I probably should be more excited.

But CG really doesn't impress me in general. It impresses me in a technical sense, but now I need substance, content, a solid UI, and a sense of inquisitiveness and adventure. I want to travel and experience another world, to go to hidden corners and to be awed. CG in some ways takes that imagination out of the gaming experience, at least for me.


^ This. This. This.
The one thing that kept me playing FFXI long past my prime time there was the fact that so many areas there were incredibly beautiful and still gave me the same feelings after years of traveling thru.
Going thru Pashhow Marsh on my first trip to Jeuno, being scared spitless. Being lost in Yhoator and Yuhtunga for months, and I could practically smell the rotting earthy ground everytime a goblin kicked my ****. And freezing that same **** off in Beaucedine...really. Smiley: lol
That's what I expected in 1.0. Didn't happen. I'm ready to burn every other game disc I own at this point. I really need AAR to work, and am willing to give it every chance. A fairly generic hope-filled new ending to the movie isn't affecting that at all.
