Posted by: Chrono Mar 5 2007, 02:11 AM

I do.

But I'll never play it.

Posted by: Makaveli Mar 5 2007, 07:18 AM

I might buy it. I need more info on the game.

Posted by: OmegaWeapon Mar 5 2007, 04:55 PM

no!

I dont wanna ruin a great game with a sequal.... REMEMBER X2.... REMEMBER tongue.gif

Posted by: _Balthier_ Mar 5 2007, 05:00 PM

Yeah im going to buy it, i have a ds, ive had it since the day it came out, but not one game for it, ive had three i think so far, but i defiantely want this, and i don't think x-2 was too bad, story line was crap, but everything else was alright, except for the blitzball and lack of CGs.

Posted by: aorin Mar 5 2007, 06:17 PM

I'm getting it, it can't be that bad...

Though, I'm wondering if I should get the Japanese Version or English Version. Or I'll just save up for both, I doubt I can hold back from buying the Japanese version.

EDIT: One more thing, as long as they don't start with an Opening showing Vaan dancing to pop music, I guess everything should be fine. (Penelo is still bearable). Don't get me wrong, I liked FFX-2 Opening but it would weird if they apply it to FFXII RW. (=^^=)

Posted by: Miss Haley Mar 5 2007, 10:08 PM

Yes... I'm getting it.
Seeing how I actually have to save up to get the DS itself, I REALLY hope it won't be a giant mini-game like X-2.
Yes, you heard me, I'm buying a gaming system for the sake of a sequel.
Yes, I'm quite sick in the mind.
No, actually, I want to see Larsa the most [doubtful]

EDIT: I agree, I would highly prefer to not see Vaan dancing to pop music...
but we all know...
it would be Balthier using Vaan's dress-magicite!
:gasp!:

Posted by: girlsrgamers2 Mar 5 2007, 10:14 PM

I'll probably buy it. . .but that means I'll have to buy a DS too. So I'll probably get it when I have extra money, and who knows when that will be. laugh.gif

I think SE learnt there lesson from X-2 (shivers) so i doubt they will do that again. It looks okay in the trailer, but i might borrow it from a friend first.

Really? If anything, I think that SE hasn't learnt its lesson. With Dirge of Cerberus, the new character G, and with 3 games scheduled for FFXIII, it seems that SE has started milking the cashcow more often now. I must admit, I really was hyped for/enjoyed FFVII AC, but... after Dirge's story went down the toilet...

That's my opinion, at least.

Revenant Wings could be awesome though~ I'm quite excited for it! smile.gif

FFVII and XIII are very different though. DoC was milking FFVII's success, regurgitating many of the same characters and locations etc... and lets not forget Crisis Core is currently shaping up very well for the PSP, and X-2 was a pretty good game (even if it was a bit iffy for a Final Fantasy).

The FFXIII games are set in different universes altogether, so theres not much for SE to regurgitate there. In short, I don't think SE are just doing these games for profit. For the majority of titles - even sequels and spinoffs, they seem to be putting in alot of effort.

More on topic: I probaby WILL be getting RW are playing through FFXII now. My sister has a DS and we have a deal that if I buy the game, I can borrow her DS and play it, as long as I give the game to her to play as well.

Posted by: kirrimir Mar 8 2007, 05:47 PM

I think its gonna RULE i think that X-2 wasnt that bad but i cant obsesively play it like others it gets boring quite quickly i hope that they ttake revenant wings seriously and its not just gonna be a little cutsie sorta thing unknw.gif

Mmm, that's true. Actually, I really enjoyed FFX-2 as well. The battle system was so awesome~

I just hope that the battle system for FFXII RW is just as good!

Posted by: Tsunade Mar 9 2007, 08:31 AM

No sequels from Square Enix for me!

Posted by: Really_Big_Sword Mar 9 2007, 02:56 PM

Im not gettin it, FF12 was too much a disappointment for me anyway.

Posted by: Roland Mar 9 2007, 05:09 PM

I'll get it, but it doesn't mean I'll have to enjoy it... or play it. Just having it eases my heart.

Yeah it was the coolest battle system up until XII...

RW has a task on its hand...I think they're keeping the system relativly real time like FFXII itself but its gonna be challenging to pull it off on the DS I think.

Posted by: silentaura Mar 10 2007, 05:15 AM

I don't own a DS or DSlite, and I am not planning on buying it, so I won't be getting this game. Besides, I'm not fascinated by the whole summon thing, and their character design are too kiddish for my taste.

Posted by: Katya Mar 10 2007, 05:25 AM

I'll get it if Famitsu won't give it anything lower than 34.

Posted by: -josh- Mar 10 2007, 01:21 PM

CHOOSE ME!!

of course.

Posted by: BohemianAndy Mar 11 2007, 10:19 AM

My little brother will be getting it, as he has a DS. I might play it..

Posted by: Dextermon Mar 14 2007, 02:46 PM

Yeah I will probably buy it even though I don't know a lot about it to be honest it looks good but even though I don't have a Nintendo DS my brother will let me play it on his Nintendo DS Lite.

Also can someone please tell me when this will come out in the United Kingdom because it normally takes Final Fantasy games ages to come out in the United Kingdom.

Posted by: aaronm429 Mar 18 2007, 04:32 AM

I read somewhere that RW is mainly a marketing strategy to get people associated with FFXII and the FF franchise. Oh, and I thought FFX-2 was a great sequel. It integrated a FF trademark battle system that alot of fans missed, and it backed up all the humor and minigames with a suprisingly solid story.
Anyway, I'm just saying we shouldn't expect too much of RW. Its just going to be a watered down rpg to lure in the masses.

Posted by: Balthier's Girl Mar 20 2007, 10:15 PM

I'm probably going to have to buy it. The promise of more Balthier = <3

But now I have to go out and buy a DooDs. sad.gif Ah well, I can get the DooDs with Balthier on it....


Ya know, every once in a while I'm forced to think two things: 1) That I have too much money for my own good; and 2) my obsession with Balthier is not necessarily a good thing...

Posted by: Galaxia Mar 22 2007, 11:00 AM

I'll be missing this one.
I got a DS for my birthday in august and it's still in box lol.... Can't stand em >.<
If I'm gonna play a game I like it on TV when I can relax after college b4 I go out not play on a tiny screen
Hope everyone who gets it likes it tho

Posted by: Claedi Mar 22 2007, 09:13 PM

I'm getting it for balthier, then borrowing my cousins ds until I beat it. But, I can't not get it, because I need more balthier...

Posted by: kirrimir Mar 27 2007, 12:20 PM

i hope teh battle system is the same!

Posted by: Michiko Mar 27 2007, 08:06 PM

Can you rent DS games? If so I'll probably rent it. I just want to see more Fran and Balthier :3

Posted by: Aliko Mar 27 2007, 10:57 PM

Eh, I might get it. I don't have a DS though and the game doesn't seem like a must have. I'll wait until it actually comes out to decide.

Posted by: Judge Kweh Kweh (10th Bureau) Mar 27 2007, 11:15 PM

I'll think about it. I don't have a DS, that's one thing that holds me back.

Posted by: Vayne Mar 28 2007, 09:46 AM

I dunno how easy the battle system will be to use though. I hope it's nothing like the game "King Kong" or something. That was nearly impossible to use i believe...

But for the DC the graphics is quite good... Just a bit more cartoonish.

Posted by: risczero Apr 3 2007, 07:28 PM

I'll get as I have done with everything else final fantasy before it. It's a sickness...but i don't wanna be healed.

Posted by: leoncoeur Apr 12 2007, 08:27 PM

no ds no intention of buying a ds so no RW for me they should have brought it out for more then just the ds imo and they would sell so much more copies i think.

lol...i'm spending 400 quid on a ps3 just for ff13 tongue.gif

i might buy a ds as well. they aren't that expensive.

Posted by: Judge of Wings Apr 19 2007, 02:48 AM

OMG! I can't believe it lolz. I was lucky to get Nintendo DS instead of PSP and when I heard that my Favorite game's next installent would be in Nintendo DS I so lucky that I got it!!. tongue.gif

Posted by: Melissa Apr 23 2007, 02:25 AM

Me, Me, Me. Im getting it.... Gimmie Gimmie, Gimmie lol

Posted by: Judge of Wings Apr 23 2007, 03:26 AM

Hey the games out today!!! Who here is Japanese and has bought the game? biggrin.gif

Posted by: kamari-ice Apr 24 2007, 01:16 AM

I won't get it. Final Fantasy Crisis Core for the PSP interests me more. I seen videos of it on the internet, and it looks boring, and like someone said before me, kiddish.

"Looks" can fool one. FFT had cute sprites as well, yet that game still had more blood and violence than any FF, and not to forget the darkest story of every FF up until now (IMHO). It's the same with IX, people say it's "looks" kiddish as well, yet the story is far from kiddish.

It can be the same with this one. We just don't know the story yet. But if you find it boring, that's your opinion, won't complain. Just... "looks" kiddish has been a reason to many people to skip some great games. Kiddisch graphics don't make a kiddish game, just wanted to say this. But in the end, feel free to think whatever you like, it's not that I can change anything about it...

As for me, I'm getting it. Sure, those who played it said that it's really easy and simple, directed at beginners (but we knew this since the beginning), but the story seems interesting, the graphics great. Plus, Llyud rules, even if for no reason. And not to forget, this game has Gilgamesh in it. That's immediatly a big plus for RW.

Of course, I don't feel anywhere as hyped for this game as for FFTA2, but that's an entirely different matter.

Posted by: Iselyn Apr 26 2007, 03:21 PM

I'll probably get it. Whenever it actually gets released in the US. I could import it and be able to navigate through it, but I'd rather understand the story...assuming there is one.

Posted by: Moguri Oct 13 2007, 03:20 PM

Im getting it! smile.gif

Posted by: Fran Fetish Oct 25 2007, 01:24 AM

Man, I would love to get this game, but sadly I don't have a DS. sad.gif

Posted by: Anarloth Oct 26 2007, 07:43 PM

I don't have a DS either... sad.gif
But I consider to buy one

Posted by: Chrono Oct 31 2007, 10:21 PM

I'm only getting it because I feel like I could give Square-Enix another chance... to make me happy.

DS is getting better in quality.

Posted by: Bleak Harvest Nov 4 2007, 01:41 PM

I'll wind up getting it, but consider it not be to be the definitive sequel.

It's one of those "large pinch of salt" deals..

Plus I need something to play on my dusty DS dry.gif

Posted by: Moguri Nov 10 2007, 08:35 PM

Im getting it this friday. OH YA!!!

Posted by: Everybody loves Larsa Feb 21 2008, 02:43 AM

Posted by: Anarloth Bunansa Feb 21 2008, 11:07 AM
