    Wow, I couldn't believe the DS was ever capable of doing this. I mean this looks even better than FF3! it looks like a friggin PSP game! I don't even see much blocks in them. And even the FPS stays great. Gameplay looks like fun too. And the ironic thing is that it's a game based on a movie! [​IMG]

    I foresee a great feature for the DS! [​IMG]

    I really can't tell what the graphics are like by that video, what with the reflection and all. It looks nice from that though.

    I sure hope there is more to it then slashing weeds and running through streams though :Phear:

    What I see is an excellent engine to be used with a MMORPG.

    Die anyone of you played Monster Hunter for the PSP ? This looks VERY similar to this thought, I hope they make a Monsethunteris game out of this.

    What's Eragon ? Will this be a DS game in the near future ?

    Try Miss Spider's Sunny Patch Friends - Harvest Time Hop And Fly. Greatest DS graphics until now. Over The Hedge has some impressive stuff, too. The graphics in the video look nice but the DS can do more. What is a little impressive is the gameplay. I hope the game is fun because the engine has potential...

    noooo.... you're all wrong.... Zelda needs to get back to making a Zelda like it was in Zelda II. But 100% side scrolling... A massive adventure like Castlevania or Metroid, but and RPG's adventure game staring Link.

    I could see that being the worst selling Zelda of all time. [​IMG]

    AFAIK it's not a children's book, it's just a fantasy novell for all ages, just like Tolkien/Feist/Goodkind/etc...

    You are correct, Eragon is the first novel in a trilogy. Eldest is the second book which has been out for a while now. The 3rd is not yet published

    The cool thing is that the author, Christopher Paolini, is only 23 yrs old now. Which would make him about 17 when he first started writing Eragon.

    The books are good, and entertaining, but they steal (borrow?) a lot of ideas from other fantasy. Such as the Dragonriders of Pern.
