I just launched a website for the upcoming Xbox 360's RPG Title : Enchanted Arms. Check it out
http://www.enchanted-arms.com

I have the asian version (which has english text with japanese dialagoue) and currently working on the Walkthough. Hopefully it'll be done when the game finally gets released in the states.

Any suggestion, post em here wink.gif

Japan - June 2006?
Typo! biggrin.gif

I'll check out the rest of the site. Looks professional so far, but get the dates straightened out.


Edit: Also, what do you think of the game? Length? Replayability?

I've heard the battles are very easy. I've noticed they're shorter than in other rpgs (from the many videos I've seen), which is ok, but I wanted to know if the battles are 'easy'.
I mean, I've seen atsuma puch out 250 damage at beginning levels in a pinch. The first 'arena' fight looked ridiculously easy (one hit ko for both of the opponents - the dude and his golem).
I've also heard that you replenish your HP and EP after each fight.

Another edit: Aha! A casino! I've spent ages in the card-matching table in fable. I find it really cool that 'bingo' is in this game, looks real fun. Also, the golem battles is a smart idea.

Anywho, how many golems can you have in your party (active battle party) at a time? Atsuma is obviously required, of course.

Anywho, totally off-topic. I found it pretty... strange that there's a character named 'Yuki' in the game who fights purely for money and golems.
Remind you of another famous RPG character?

Yuffie, from Final Fantasy VII. She fought pureply for money and materia. She was annoying, much like what I've seen from Yuki (except Yuki seems like a bitch (I've only seen the arena part - don't plan on seeing any more of the game yet)). I mean, Yuffie joined the team to screw them over later on, but soon found herself happy in the party and felt as if she belonged. If it's the same for Yuki, then it's an obvious character-spinoff. I'm not saying it's a mouthfull of unoriginality, just a taste. I mean, character spinoffs are pretty apparent in japanese rpgs, but I just found the YUKI/YUFFIE similarities amusing.

Anyways, another EDIT to come in the near future, maybe.

They won't let me edit the message, so ehre's a shiny new one! biggrin.gif



Yeah, so I guess it is true that your HP and EP replenish after each battle. Maybe it just sounds bad because one of the crucial 'strategy' points in any RPG is to save your MP (magic points - similar to EP) so you have enough when you approach the boss. Otherwise, if you use magic on the many normal battles you'll encounter on the way, you'll have to drink expensive MP restorative potions. The reason you'd save your MP for bosses is so you can unleash your deadliest attacks on the boss.
Now, with eM, it seems as if you can unleash everything whenever you want, making normal battles very easy. I mean, it's a bit different since every attack gobbles up EP, but the fact that it replenishes after each round means that you'll be able to use up every bit of EP against your enemy because, who cares - it'll come back anyways.

I haven't played the game, but it seems as if the whole 'regenerative' system after each battle is a bit of a hand-holder (a big one at that).
Heh, don't even get me started with how your HP regenerates after each battle.

Basically, one of the things that is crucially apparent in many of the greatest Jap-rpgs is managine your teamthroughout your travels. Making sure they're healed appropriately for oncoming battles, making sure you have enough mp, etc.

lmx, shed some light on this subject.


BTW< I'm still hped for the game, but I won't be happy if it's an easy hand-holder (I mean, you don't have to worry about healing or regenerating your SP supply, unlike in almost every other hit jap-rpg). It's just a pretty big deal, and a clear subject to be aware of for those who are cautious of whether games difficulty level is way too soft.
