    Is it just me, or does this game look friggin' fantastic. I mean honestly, the graphics are beautiful, the gameplay looks awesome, and it looks like its gonna turn out well. Who else can't wait for this game to come out in North America?

    It's OK, but I prefer a normal RPG like the Final Fantasy series. I'm getting tired of dungeon crawling!

    Really? I haven't played a true dungeon crawler in a while. Although, that could be because I haven't exactly been looking for 'em. Meh.

    Ahahaha! Those comics can be amusing. Not all of them mind you, but some of them have their moments...

    I'm quite excited for this one. I'm in the mood for a nice portable RPG.

    Looks pretty interesting, but I'm not a fan of dungeon crawlers. Too bad there's really no traditional RPGs for the DS. Aside from FF3 of course, but that's way too traditional. Any recommendations on good RPGs for the DS? GBA had tons of them.

    I'm going to call this Shin Megami Tensei: Etrian Odyssey just to make it 100x better in my mind.

    What I think the most impressive feature in this game is the diablo-style skill tree. Every character starts with 3 skills points freely to distribute, furthermore each level up will grant another skill point to build up one uniqe character at the end.
    Each class has their own skill tree and player can build their own unique character, say a warrior can be built sword style or axe style, each with own attack skills. Mage has 4 spell schools to specialize in, fire, ice, lightening and poison each to their own adventage. This game offers so much more flexibility than other traditional dungeon crawling type RPG. I truly wish there will be sequel to this great game.

    PREVIEW:
    http://www.gametrailers.com/player.php?id=...ype=mov&pl=game

    It really reminds me of Shining in the Darkness and of course, one of my favourite games of all time, Shining the Holy Ark! I've been dreaming of a StHA remake for the DS and now this comes along! What luck!

    AND IT'LL BE OUT IN A WEEK?!!

    OMG OMG OMG!!
