If you buy it on PSN, you can just use download the game off the other account and only have to pay for one copy of the game.

I don't know why so many devs neglect overworld maps in RPGs. Not having one takes away any sense of scope, adventure, and exploration and it's great to see a return. I like that they included a small bit of it in the demo and from what I've seen in a few videos there's a lot of variety in the environments. Can't wait for this game. It's been a long time since I've really enjoyed a good JRPG.

The overworld map does indeed looks gorgeous.

From deserts to mountains and deep forests. Not to mention you can ride a Dragon to explore :o
Man, I'm so hyped.

Well said. The lack of this (or any real exploration) in Fire Emblem, Valkyria Chronicles, Eternal Sonata, FFXIII, Resonance of Fate, and more have turned me off from them.

How would you implement exploration in Valkyria Chronicles though ?

I only played the demo of it (not even all the demo) and from what I hear, it is combat, story and menus for stores. BORING. lol Simiar for Fire Emblem I hear. I love the exploration aspect of RPG's. I love Tales of Symphonia, Skies of Arcadia, Baten Kaitos, Paper Mario and so on.

It's one of the best PS3 exclusives in my eyes, though :P

Hahah I am not saying its bad, I am just saying that I love and miss overworlds and exploration. And dont tell me Xenoblade did a good job of that, cause it sure as hell did not :P. Best this gen I have played is Tales of Vesperia.

Xenoblade doesn't really have an overwold, you pretty much just walk around the world in general.

That being said I did like the exploration in Xenoblade, especially exploring the Eryth Sea. Those Meteor Showers, Dat music :oops:

Have you guys played Dragon Quest VIII? I know I'm a bit late but I never got around to playing it when it was released. Is it worth picking up? Playing Ni no kuni's demo has me curious.

*phew* The dragon looks amazing. I'm loving the animation, everything's so well drawn and flows beautifully. I wonder how far in we get the dragon? Probably pretty late. :cry:

Hmm possibly reconsidering my purchase of the wizards edition now that I realize the European only has half the content of the US wizard's edition.. And that plush drippy looks a bit on the cheap side.

Aside from GI and eventually GS, this game is already looking to be the PS3's best game of 2013 and an easy contender for PS3 (keyword being PS3) GOTY. Overall GOTY is yet to be decided but I wouldn't be surprised if Ni no Kuni made the cut. I need a job so I can get this game.....or my tax refund :P

And JRPG's tend to vary in score as is. Baten Kaitos (and Origins) deserved much better reviews. I love those games!

it's not the same. When you play Zelda games is easy to forget that Link is just a kid but is not the same on Ni No Kuni. The music, the weak silly looking familiars, the music... People are just overhyping it because of the graphics and nothing more. And then you guys say that gameplay > graphics, what a joke. There is a reason why Ni No Kuni flopped in Japan you know....

Baten Kaitos has an 80/100 on Metacritic so I don't know what more you were expecting to be honest. That game doesn't deserve triple A. One of my favorite series is Yakuza but objectively speaking it doesn't deserve triple A either. I mean, why is an 8/10 not enough for a gamer? You know how hard it is for a movie to get that kind of score? No wonder the average for games is 7/10!!

he loved it, though (in the Now Playing).

i must say, though, i find it sad and ironic that Gamespot lost to IGN for the top-spot video game website. GS's youtube channel views is just so minute now compared to IGN. remember the time when GS was the most-visited? what the hell happened to this site?

Then they'll either replace him with someone who didn't like the game or doesn't like JRPGs or get him to write a bad review. Either way, it's not gonna score higher than AA.
