    More demos for me. :lol:
    But I would give both Heroes of Ruin and Rayman demos for the Kingdom Hearts one.

    Damn, I'm guessing NA will have to wait a month for this.

    The demo was announced for NA at E3, so hopefully you guys won't have to wait long. This is the first demo I've really wanted, none of the others interested me anywhere near as much.

    I agree with this...

    Though I've been very curious to see how online multiplayer plays~

    FFS whose the idiot who decided on the limits placed upon demo usage? It is absolutely unnecessary.

    Ok just played this single player and one online match and instead of giving a long drawn out review of the demo, i will just list my personal pros and cons with the game (ill try and keep it as breif as poss)

    Pros:
    - 3D and graphics in general are decent
    - Skills actually had some variety and look cool
    - Controls well
    - Finding players and Internet play works well and i had no lag or issues with other people shooting at enemies that were in diffrent positions on my screen

    Cons:
    - The inventory and equip menus pause the game and are slow to navigate, it would of been nice if you could do it on the bottom screen as you were playing
    - The sound is awful especially the voice acting
    - Because the game is zoomed in so much, i found that using the gunslinger (being a ranged character) you often find yourself shooting at enemies off-screen

    Just gave the demo a try and it's basically Diablo light. Not bad actually!

    But 6 tries? Seriously?

    Exactly, who cares if we play a seriously borked 20 minute demo of a game a thousand times? Who's gonna want to play the same 3 quests over and over again, really?

    IIRC, it tells you you can set the zoom level somewhere, probably a good idea for the gunslinger. The voice acting kinda reminds me of Diablo II, in fact you can tell that was the game's entire source of inspiration.

    Kinda wish I'd pre-ordered it when it was £25 on Amazon, now.

    This game looks quite decent. Hopefully it'll be localized for Japan.

    But I think it won't.

    Heroes of ruin is shown in Nintendo of Japan website so there may be a chance that it will be release in JPN, will have to see how well the sales is first...LOL...if it doesn't sell well in EU or US then no point bringing it to JPN...maybe they will even replace all the crappy English Dub with Japanese Dub for the JPN release! :D
