Looks fun...for about 5 minutes.

It's going to be shit and you jolly well know it.

True, it looks like a real good laugh...but the lack of free movement control (choosing directions like in killer7) and the repeated actions could get tiresome quickly.

Hopefully Yuji Horii will add some sparkle to the project.

It's obviously only a Dragon Quest game for the brand alone.

It's going to be shit and you jolly well know it.

Well, it IS a successor to Kenshin Dragon Quest, the TV plug-in 'game' that sold over half a million in Japan a few years back. Makes sense to build upon such a successful idea and if it benefits Wii then all the better...

Didn't mind the look of the fight system in the last video..looked quite interesting. Apart from that.....Meh.

Dude yuor totally awesome. And i won't be killing you anytime soon.

jesusraz, you are right, but this was a few years ago. Now people want a Dragon Quest like DQ VIII on PS2 I think...

Couldn't watch the trailers, though, since I only got Flash 7 on my Gentoo-Linux and I don't like trailers running on Flash anyway! You can not store them on your machine. *grumble* Go to hell, Flash!

I find your lack of faith disturbing!

I thought that at first, but then I bought and played House of the Dead 2 a hell of a lot... It might be fun if it was actually remotely difficult, which it doesn't look like it is...

Still a proud member of the 'omfg amazing water in games' society

Shit.

House Of The Dead II was a lot of fun - because you had a biiiiiiiiiiiiiig screen and lightguns. I played it in the local arcade. It was great. Wonderful graphics (I know, nowadays it's lame). And wonderfully cheesy voice output: "This can't be! You're...!" or "Gee, bloodstains!"
emphasized all the wrong way! A classic.

I see, that you have diversive(?) battle moves, and it looks funny, but I fear it is only funny for a couple of minutes. But Killer 7 was great too, so maybe it's good after all.

Would like to have a decent Dragon Quest RPG though...

Th rails thing LOOKS really cool.

looks kind of repetitive though...slash slash shoot shoot...occasional block.

Avoid Games Like the Plague, productivity++
