Goddamn, NeoGAF has me so pumped about getting destroyed by this game. I think I can hold off as long as it doesn't get a US release.

So I wonder how many people in the US will now pretend to have ever cared about King's Field, or even From Software in general, now that they have a PS3-exclusive to cling to and fawn over.

Almost. The difference, is that people got interested in Fallout 3 because of the publisher (and their reputation with Elder Scrolls; another series that suddenly got really popular with it's third entry), not the platform.

Kingsfield WAS awesome though (for me). It was one of the only rpg's out at the time so no fucking shit I cared about it. From Software also made Otogi which was bad ass as well. I can't comment on the other stuff they've made but comments like yours are just fodder for trolls.

Uh, if you say so...

but comments like yours are just fodder for trolls.

Oh, chill the hell out. I'm just saying, that the PS3 community seems to make a big deal out of EVERY SINGLE EXCLUSIVE, no matter what it's credentials. I find it really hard to believe that as many people as will make a big deal out of this exclusive game , as actually cared about From's RPG history.

I don't think anyone's really making as big of a deal about this game as you've made it out to be, as evidenced by the ~60 posts made before you found this thread. The fact that it's not even out in the US makes it very hard for anybody, besides a few people on Neogaf, to care about the game.

You read it. You can't unread it.

Wow, you must not remember but there were barely any RPG's for the PSone when it launched in 95. King's Field was one of few here in NA.

The PlayStation was totally not the only thing to play videogames on in 1995.

Sorry if you took it the wrong way but I was only talking about PSone RPG's. They were very limited on that system when it launched and for quite some time after which is why King's Field filled that void for some people.

There's actually a TON of ppl very aware of this game, lots calling it their GOTY of the year so far. Eurogamer posted their review, somethingawful forums has had two 1,200+ post threads about it, the thread on Gaf is over 3k posts. Gametrailers, gamespot or almost any video game forums has lots of interested people.

Okay, see, there is nothing about the statement "It was one of the only rpg's out at the time" that is PlayStation-specific, so you can't blame me for misinterpreting it.

That still isn't that many sales for a game that's supposedly a big deal.

Just curious but, where did you get that info from? The only source shown regarding the sales of Demon's Souls has been a famitsu magazine article saying the Japanese version sold 100k. Didn't say anything about the other two versions.

I'm trying to find out as much as I possibly can about this game before I try and grab a copy. Is it turn based or action? Is it a straight up action RPG/dungeon crawler type of game?

I ask because I like the action-y type of RPG's but I CAN'T STAND anything like Final Fantasy.

i added a link to more wang pics. yu wang i mean not wang wang as in penis.

Sarcasm-Just one of the many services I offer.

It's a straight-up ARPG/dungeon crawler. You should have a blast with this one!

I went ahead and ditched my knight character, as playing as her was just too hard. Re-started with a Royal (soul arrow + regenerating MP ring = WIN) and the game is almost too easy now. You can keep your enemies at a distance and even their hand-to-hand combat isn't that bad. Still haven't beaten 2-2 though :-(.

I have to agree, this game seems to be getting a lot of attention lately from importers.
As soon as this FF:Advent Children sells, I'll order up a copy as I've been meaning to since the game came out.

So I wonder how many people in the US will now pretend to have ever cared about King's Field, or even From Software in general, now that they have a PS3-exclusive to cling to and fawn over.

Man, so I went through 2-2 (yay!) and 3-1 last night. This game still amazes me!! It captures the oppressive scary vibe that Resident Evil has been trying to do for YEARS. I literally didn't blink the entire time I was at the Tower of Latria.
