    You mean that abomination of a game that all the retailers hyped up and decided to stock instead of Okamiden?

    Yeah. Pretty poor overall it seems

    Actually hear Okamiden is a disappointment, too. Or rather people expected it to be as revolutionary as the first, similar to the disappointment in Resident Evil 5 not being the game changer 4 was.

    It's receiving pretty positive reviews actually. Most people complaining seem to forget the fact that the DS doesn't have as much power as the Wii so obviously somethings are downgraded.

    Still brilliant however.


    Looks like EA is in the news again. This time everyone is suing them for Madden. Bout time too.

    The whole concept behind Homefront seemed pretty dumb anyway.

    I rented Homefront and two hours later I returned it, something I almost never do. The game suffered so many flaws like worthless team mates who get in your way and do nothing to help in a gun fight, same guns as most other games of the same type with no feeling to them and poor sound effects, no new or re-worked game mechanics of interest,in game marketing (one battle makes it so you see a Tiger.Com sign the whole time),etc.
    The game felt like it was over-hyped and rushed to bank off the CoD trend.

    Looks like Dragon's Dogma is the next Breath of Fire game!

    The Breath of Fire V director tweeted a little while ago that even though the teaser site just used DD's initials, everyone figured out the official name from the copyright filing. He didn't say that he was referring to this game in particular, but what else would he be talking about?

    If people didn't know it was going to be a Breath of Fire game before, whelp, you tweeting to complain about how people "figured it out" certainly didn't help, genius.

    *does a little dance*

    The Breath of Fire series was one of my favorite and most beloved RPG franchises. If this is indeed the next BoF, I'll shit bricks.

    This seriously just made me grin. I'd be so excited for another Breath of Fire, even if it's some sort of "spiritual succesor".

    More BoF2, less Dragon Quarter. Seriously, if they hadn't slapped the BoF logo on that game, I never woulda known it was the same franchise at all. Its easy to see why they didn't call it part 5 at the time, but still...

    Hopefully this one won't end with them fighting God , finding out its making the world a better place, killing it, and thus dooming the planet.... again.

    This. Bout time they released a new one.

    Although dooming planets seem to be the norm for JRPG endings these days XD

    Here's hoping it's on the PS3.

    Dunno if we have a topic. But IGN's put up a comic for Portal 2. Not having played the first game it's just confusing and kinda made me lose hope in just buying the 2nd off the shelves.

    art is nice tho.

    Looks like Dragon's Dogma isn't a BOF game.

    Still hope that someday capcom make another in the vein of BOF2 or 3.

    CRAPtivate emabrgo's just dropped, and DD is a new IP.

    New IP? I'm always down for that! Disappointed it's not a return to Breath of Fire (unless maybe it's a spiritual successor, one last ditch hope), but I'm always cool with veteran companies going for a new IP.

    As opposed to a generic turn-based RPG? Because that's what BoF is.

    Using the good ol' cautiously optmistic approach for DD. Holy Hell has the right idea - it should be applauded when one of the big-boy companies standing on a mountain of sequels takes a risk with a new IP.

    Yes? I do believe I put the words "my thing" in there.

    And in any event, the two BOF games I like, 2 & 3, did some interesting things of their own, such as having your own town & the gene/master systems in 3. Not to mention the good sense of humour they have, and 3 having one of the best stories in any rpg going.
