I guess I'm just a fan of prop-type items I find I'd much rather have a replica of something used in game than a lot of the stuff that gets thrown in LEs (mousepads, postcards, mini OSTs, wafer-thin artbooks that only reproduce artwork you've seen plastered all over the net for months...).
Hey I didn't say I hated those things, just that if given the choice I'd rather have something with a bit of thought to it that isn't easily duplicated in a few wallpapers or Youtube clips. Sakura Taisen 3 is a good one - the Dreamcast version had two LEs, in one you got a working music box that was a replica of one used in the game, and in the other you got a VMU in ST3 livery, which was again used in the game. So both were relevant, one was practical, and they were both things you couldn't have got any other way.
Oh boy, the movie animation in that trailer is terrible >_>
Game footage looks great, but I knew it would, even if it does just confirm that reading some of the harder kanji is going to be a paaaain. Music... Barrier I already know I love from VS, final track sounds great, opening sounds like a typical Kanako song - ie boring, but I rarely like Falcom vocals so that's no loss.
2 months to go!
Also I want the KonamiStyle pack too ;_; I'd just deputy it no questions asked but it would take longer to arrive and I'm not sure I can wait a day longer than I absolutely have to to play this game.
Site now up, and they're taking preorders. Falcom Online Store preorder bonus is... worthless bits of cardboard. Again. Soundtrack Mini + 4 Postcards has to be the most worthless set of preorder extras ever.
From the article that was in the Dengeki Playstation:
The blue haired guy is Arios MacLaine. He's another S-Rank Bracer that's located in Crossbell. He is *also* one of the students of Yun Kafei. (Just like Cassius Bright in both cases- except Cassius no longer uses a blade- but Richard was one of his students.)
I'm geussing he might be the reason why Estelle and Joshua are in Crossbell then, right?
