Isn't it that free downloadable game?LordAndrew

I thought MS shut that down. I still have it on my PC though.

A slight improvement for the 360, but it will take more than AC6 and LO to turn the table.

Anyone know when the US October numbers are expected?

If it isn't, then it's FFVI. Take your pick between those two. Both fantastic games and they rank up at the top of my favorite games of all time, not just RPG's.

Thanks for the impressions.  I think the game looks interesting.  I'll be curious to see how it turns out.  This is one of the games I have my eye on for the PS3.  Not saying its enough to get me to drop $600 on the console, but at least its a start to a library of games that I would find interesting (along with White Knight and FFXIII).

I think this is more the case of MS wanting to run a consistent service.  If they start giving too many things away for free they begin to set a precedent that would lead their customers to expect more free stuff in the future and would alter what we thought of as value.  Always remember that MS is a buisness and is trying to make money.  If they could sell you an empty box they would.  It's all about how people view value.  MS saw value in the Gears maps and knew that their customers would as well.  They just don't want to undermine the perception of value that they have developed with XBL.

Looks pretty good.  Putting that Unreal Engine 3 to good use in trying to replicate the look and feel of FFXII.  :P

Just kidding.  I actually think it looks nice.  Has a pretty good draw distance and I like the character designs.

I can't wait to pick it up.  The game just has so much depth.  And I think the game looks better than people are giving it credit for.

Can anyone provide any more details on what they had to say about Odin Sphere, Grim Grimoire and Sim City DS?

Also, what kind of game is PQ2?

[QUOTE="danmp18"]

I don't want to get into that same old discussion about what constitues a RPG, but imo Oblivion is more role-playing than anything on the OP's list. I'd put it in the same category as Fallout or Planescape: Torment. You have the freedom to play a role instead of seeing a story through a characters eyes.

Comparing Oblivion with Fallout and Planescape is like asking to get kicked in the nuts. :lol:

I'm not comparing the games, at least on a competency basis.  I'm saying that what you're doing in Oblivion is more role-playing than what you do in Final Fantasy or Valkyrie Profile.  I'm not saying they're bad games, as I love them, but imo they are fundamentaly different games that all get lumped into the same genre based on the loose association with Tolkein or D&D or Ultima.

All of these RPG's are going to come out at the same time.  It really sucks that these companies do that.  Do they think that gamers don't play games any other time of the year?
