PlayStation Move

I finally MOVE IT MOVE IT!!!!! Yes the new PlayStation Move is here. It launched at 15 Sept but due to stock is not enough therefore mine was a bit delayed. I suppose to get the Sports Champion too but since really out of stock and heard that next stock won’t have this bundle set therefore I just get this, Start the Party. A nice game to play with a group of friends. That makes me need to get 1 more PlayStation Move controller.

Well here are some of my point of view after played the PlayStation Move few days. The controller is nice enough with the color sphere. Nicely fit your hands. My complain will be the PlayStation Eye. Due to I put it on top of the TV, therefore nothing is supporting the device and sometime it will move a bit and I need to align it back.

For the games, I think this is the winning point for PlayStation Move. HD gaming for motion controller game. The bundle comes with a demo disc and I able to play the Sports Champion. Woo that is a great sport game. Nice graphic, realistic controlling. It just real. Then some others game also support PlayStation Move, one of it is the anticipated game, Heavy Rain and Resident Evil 5. Tested too, I love it….

Overall you may say this motion controller is same as Nintendo Wii. Yes the concept, idea is same but the game is really different. HD gaming compare with lower graphic of Nintendo Wii. In fact there is a different of controlling between Move and Wii, Move able to detect the X-axis, Y-Axis, and Z-Axis, that is front, back, left, right, up, and down while Wii is without front and back.

Let’s MOVE IT!!!!

Final Fantasy

My iTunes playlist is flooded of OST music and most of it is belongs to Final Fantasy. Lately I keep listening to the Final Fantasy X ending theme song. Then I go and YouTube the ending scene. It was a good Final Fantasy game with a nice love story and also great music.

A great music that reminds me of a good ending scene and also the game itself, anywhere it always comes together in one. When listening to the OST, it always reminds me those scenes in the game, this is why I like it so much. Same goes to movie, I’m sure it will make you remember some of the scene when you hear the rhythm.

Now I hope the Distant Worlds will come to Malaysia to perform their Distant Worlds II as last year I went to Singapore for the show. It was a great show, while now I’m still waiting for them to release their tour for next year. Hope I no need travel to Singapore for it, but I will to if there isn’t a choice.

Check out the ending scene, it was a sad one but for me is a nice ending, a memorable ending.

Final Fantasy XIII

Final Fantasy, one of the greatest RPG game in the world. I bought Final Fantasy XIII on the first day it release at local shop. I’m a fans of Final Fantasy not only the game but also the music.

Today I spent my whole daytime and finally I finished the game. Basically I just beat the game but I didn’t really finish the side quest. In fact I think not much side quest I can explore too. Total hours for me to complete this game is less than 50 hours.

So here are my personal comments of the game. Well I’m quite dissapointed with the game due to it is not the Final Fantasy game that it used to be. This is not a RPG game, is more like adventure game. One of the reason is the battle system. It pretty flat and not much you can do with it. All you need just level up to get the power. Each character have their own level board that is fixed in the beginning, but you can expand more to make the character more powerful.

The battle system come with a Paradigm Shift system whereby you just need to switch between attacker, magician, healer, support and another one I not sure what it should be called, sort of like casting magic to enemy. So you just need to keep on attack, until your HP is run out then change to 1 character to healer to heal your team. That’s all. That is the battle system and it will last till end of the game. The AI for the battle system, you can’t change it. So it is pretty flat. All you need just use the auto battle, keep press it then is more than enough. I think they think to have a fast battle system so to make it more fun to play and not the one by one turn based. But I think fans would like to have that.

Another bad is only 1 character is allowed under your command. So if you’re a lazy person like me, that don’t like to keep changing you will use the same character till end. I changed to others character just to see how is the summon look like when it cast. Yeah those summon is really useless in the game. Personally I think the exist of summon in the game is just to checked the compulsory list for Final Fantasy game. If no summon then is not Final Fantasy.

The story is not really good too. I’m quite blur with the characters, and those enemy. All I know is they need to fight in order to save the world. For me Lightning is not the main character, Vanille is the one. This is her story. But overall the story still fine as in the end it is quite touching. I think no any story can beat Final Fantasy VII. The best ever RPG storyline.

So that is all the bad of the game. The good one, seriously the graphic is damn stunning. It is the best graphic in PS3, and I would say the best graphic for RPG game. SquareEnix did it again as usual. The best graphic game. The in-game graphic is damn good therefore there is no reason the CG will be bad. It is very details in every scene.

The game don’t have much side quests eventhough it have a huge map, no aeroplane to ride but only have warp, luckily got chocobo, the summon I just see once for others character as no chance to use it. Can’t control the others 2 characters during battle, just let the AI do it. Anywhere this is still a great game, to develop a game such as Final Fantasy is not easy. It really need a lot of resources and ideas to make the game great. I do hope they would more concerntrate in the story and battle system rather than graphic in upcoming game. Now just hope they get what fans want and develop a great game. Looking forward for Final Fantasy Versus XIII. Hope it will be another great game from Square Enix.

Why

‘Why’ by Ayaka, theme song for Crisis Core : Final Fantasy VII the prequel of Final Fantasy VII. Out of sudden I’m wanted to listen this song, so I just go to my iTunes and look for this song. Then I also want to blog to share about this song. Song entitled ‘Why’, I think song title really match with the game very much. Why must end in such way, Why must he die, Why he can’t survive, Why such a sad ending (Which I like). If you played the game, I think you might feel the same. Seriously when I watched the ending of the game with this song, really feel sad.

Check out the Crisis Core : Final Fantasy VII ending at here. Then you will know why I said that. A very good prequel game, good story, good explaination and it able to link the story with Final Fantasy VII very well. WHY it is so good….. 😀

Enjoy

Kingdom Hearts : Birth by Sleep

One of a game that I like the most in PS2, Kindgom Hearts. A SquareEnix x Disney action role-playing game that started since 2002. Kingdom Hearts is created by Tetsuya Nomura, the character designer for Final Fantasy VII. Yes he is the one who designed Cloud. Now he is one of the key person in SquareEnix.

What so great about Kingdom Hearts? I think probably the great story leads me to like this series so much. This game is cute too as it have the Disney character such as Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Goofy and Pluto as the lead while it do have Disney story in the game. I think Disney should feel proud of such game.

Kindgom Hearts released their fifth game for the series called Kingdom Hearts : Birth by Sleep early this year for Japan version. This game takes place before Kingdom Hearts, which mean is like a prequel. A good approach as we can know the story well and how the main character Sora, Rikku, and Kairi exists as I think it is related and the story will be told in this Kingdom Hearts : Birth by Sleep.

This game will release in Summer 2010 and maybe this is my first original PSP game due to it might unable to crack since the Japanese version already happened. But who know, demands can bring a smile to everyone.
