Since I cannot create another Poll in my already existing Topic I hope the mods allow this Poll to be posted!

Yes on PS3, but probably not on day one.

Didnt care for Muramasa. I will pass.

Yes, I love Double Dragon/Golden Axe type beat'em ups and the artstyle is gorgeous.

Really?! Between the Capcom/Golden Axe gameplay and the Disney references, I thought you were a shoe-in!

It plays nothing like Muramasa!

What Disney references. And what do you mean it doesn't play like Muramasa?
#8 Posted by dvader654 (44752 posts) -
Huh, I probably should have watched a video of the game first. Will wait for demo.
#9 Posted by Phantom_Leo (7054 posts) -

You didn't read my topic at the Press at all, did you?

Here's one reference, but the game is STUFFED full of Movie, Biblical, Renaissance Art... you name it... TONS of Homages to dozens of sources! The game is a Brawler of the classic Capcom Style, not an Action game like Muramasa!

I will definitely be getting this game for the PS3. I love these types of games and this one looks great.
#13 Posted by LoG-Sacrament (20397 posts) -
not decided yet, but i may end up getting it.
#14 Posted by zeroyaoi (1876 posts) -
Yes, not sure which system to get it for.
#15 Posted by Nintendo_Ownes7 (30917 posts) -

I plan on getting the PS3 version.

#16 Posted by Sileviathan (149 posts) -
I want to, but I'm not sure I'll have the money to get it.

I will get it eventually, not sure if day one or whether I want the PS3 or Vita version.
#19 Posted by Jackc8 (8500 posts) -

Love the artwork but I'm not into that 2-D stuff at all.

#20 Posted by Phantom_Leo (7054 posts) -

8 people will buy it, huh...

I guess that's 7 more people than Muramasa...

#21 Posted by Lucky_Krystal (1730 posts) -

I'll consider it.

#22 Posted by IndianaPwns39 (5037 posts) -

Yup. Between this and the Dungeons and Dragons re-releases it's looking to be a good year for old school brawlers.

#23 Posted by JustPlainLucas (73564 posts) -
I think I'm going to purchase it and play solely as the sorceress just to piss off all the prudes we have in here.
#24 Posted by jcopp72 (5335 posts) -
never heard of it untill now, after watching that video I will not buy it.
#25 Posted by sukraj (21797 posts) -

not interested.

I think it's a beautiful pairing.

#27 Posted by Minishdriveby (10117 posts) -
Hell yeah! It looks great and the co-op should be fun with the lady. The gameplay in Muramasa became a little bit too repetitive after awhile, but this looks relatively different (more beat em' brawler-ish), and the art is still top notch like in Muramasa.
#28 Posted by DJ_Lae (42748 posts) -
I have the PS3 version preordered as it's currently discounted to $40CDN (not sure if that will end up being the final MSRP). I do wish it was cross-buy, though, but I also realize that would never happen. Maybe I'll pick up the Vita version when it hits <$10 on PS+ if the game has a passable portable port.
#29 Posted by MasterTankallex (94 posts) -

I'm not sure. I love Odin's Sphere and Muramasa, but this game is more of a beat 'em up.

Same.

#32 Posted by N3MO (20333 posts) -
I have both versions preordered along with Muramasa: Rebirth.
#33 Posted by ristactionjakso (5664 posts) -

Actually looks good. Might buy it depending on its price.

#34 Posted by Jehuty08 (1951 posts) -

will be getting it for the VITA

#35 Posted by Mrmedia01 (1917 posts) -

Wheres the Maybe Option?

 

I am going to wait for a few written and video reviews before I buy.

 

Wish this was cross buy. I guess it would be funner on PS3 being it has 4 player CoOp.

#36 Posted by SaudiFury (8707 posts) -

i almost want to now, just out of spite for all the people bitching about how awful it is for video games.

No I will not buy Dragon's Crown. Not on first day, not on any day. A game has to be just like Uncharted, it has to be flawless technically, great and addictive gameplay, great music score, great story and characters, great graphics. I've played enough Vanillaware games to know that pretty artwork alone can't make a great game.

Why do you think it's a joke? You know it's not impossible to form a judgement on unreleased products if you're familiar with a company's line of work right?

Edit: Why do you think it's a joke? I'm waiting...

#42 Posted by Ballroompirate (22188 posts) -

Yes for the PS3

You're not getting the game because it is not Uncharted? That's an odd standard to apply to a niche game like Dragon's Crown but I suppose to each their own.

I mentioned Uncharted as an example of an all rounded game. Mind you I'm completely aware they're totally different genres but it doesn't hurt to use it as an example of how a game should be. I use the same crietria when judging all games. 

Also, there's no "niche" games. There are big studio games and indie/ five people games. Why should we excuse games made by big studios, and they have all the means to make great games, for not excelling in every aspect?

This reminds me of an episode of a Destructoid show where the guy says some so called niche titles and indie titles use the indie/niche as an excuse for their inadequacies. If I had the link, I would've posted it here.

Taking a small budget game and holding it to the likes of Uncharted which had more of a Hollywood budget just doesn't seem like an accurate comparison. Speaking of Hollywood, it's no different than me expecting a movie like Lost In Translation to be like The Avengers. Both good movies in my opinion but one is only going to capture a select audience while the other has more of a massive appeal hence the label "niche".

 

I don't agree with your example so I ridicule your opinion. Nice. Can you help me, and you're someone who have played more games than I did and have better taste in games, think of a better example? 

gamingqueen

Totally confused... I'm not sure what you are talking about with me ridiculing your opinion. That was never might intention. I was merely making an observation. Are you seriously asking me to help you come up with a better analogy? If so, I suppose I could. I like trying to come up with analogies that are able to encapsulate obscure thought. It's a fun challenge.

1) I don't recall saying that big studios get any free passes when it comes to making great games and I am not sure how you jumped to that notion.

2) :| ...what? You don't really like that word do you? I... jeez... why did I attempt to particpate in this thread?

Small budget? Atlus? No way. 

Both games have enough money to make a great video game. One put all the money and resources they have to good use the other are relying on breatsts and anime fanbase. You know how many times they made us kill spider/dragon/wizard bosses in Odin Sphere? You call that niche game? I'm not aware you can pull the niche card whenever someone mentions serious flaws in games. As serious as repeating entire levels/boss fights.

I do understand that it's niche which to me is some sort of elitism, but it's still bad.

gamingqueen

Niche simply means you are dealing with a game that appeals to a limited, narrow demographic which in turn usually means a smaller budget because the developer and publisher are cognizant of the reality that the game will have limited appeal when considering the larger, broader consumer base.

I would most certainly consider this game niche, along with many of the games Atlus publishes.

Hell, I'm thinking about buying two copies for the same reason.  It's like that time I was at a McDonalds and some protesters were there annoying people about eating there.  So I heard them out, went back inside, and got another cheese burger and ate it stand right in front of them, flipped them off, and went on my merry way.  It was a good day.

It is a smaller budget because their audience is very targeted and specific. They are not trying to go for the big numbers so there is no need for them to use an Uncharted-sized budget.

As far as flaws, most of the Atlus games do have shortcomings but it seems to me you simply don't like the gameplay which is just fine. There are some Atlus games I don't like either. What I don't understand is the tone you have in your posts and why you are so defensive. You seem to be taking my observations very personally which are not directed towards you on a personal level but towards your reasoning.

Niche is not an elitist word. It's been used for as long as I remember to describe a very specific targeted interest much like the phrase "cult following" is used for cinema.
