That's right, doods. Buy or die. Even I'm buying! And I swore off new games.

Oh good I just fired this up. More games should have War of the Lions-type graphics like this!

Won't have this until Christmas, but I've never in recent memory been as amazed AND convinced by a demo as the one for this. Only Bioshock and DQVIII's were equally amazing, and I was convinced on both of those beforehand.

I just played the first encounter, and I am suprised it took this long for this type of game to be made. It feels so natural to play and the concept is so simple, yet really effective. I know that Phantom Brave bears mentioning for the free-roaming movement part, but this takes it beyond sprites, which is huge.

Even I loved the demo, and I'm not a fan of SRPGs. I'm still a little wary of picking it up for that reason, but once I clear off some other stuff (like Mother 3), I'll probably snag it.

Something I just realized I liked: While you are taking your turn, the enemy isn't just sitting on their hands. They're firing at you from their position while you're moving. Same thing happens during the enemy's turn with you. That's so cool.

The game's a bit chatty, though...
