First quick look of THE FUTURE!
Quick Look: Final Fantasy: The Crystal Bearers
I can confirm that. Both the control issues and people saying Crystal Bearer, Layle rarely gets called by his name in the game and like the title implies there are multiple bearers.
" It looked good, and had some nice set pieces, but it looked like it had some control issues. And it said Crystal bearer A whoooooool lot. Someone should count that. "
Looks like Ryan did not notice that when you pick up objects,characters etc... you can use the pointer to simply shoot them by pressing B. Guess he did not play it for all that long before this quicklook. Combat is pretty scare in this game so that is understandable. The game only really opens up after about a hour.
The mail moogle is odd, you have to lock on to the letter he is carrying and grab that not the moogle itself.
There were some points in this quicklook where they say things that are relevant to the story later on unknowingly both false and true which was really weird but that would be spoiler territory.
One thing i did notice here that i did not notice when i played through the game is that one of the more important characters from much later in the game is totally there in the beginning of the game. Ha I still can't believe that that character was actually there.
" What the, did they change the video player? It's all laggy and I can't leave the player paused to load up the whole video. "Yeah they did, something flash based just like Youtube. It ran extremely poor for me as well and the quality on the medium settings appeared to be quite worse as medium before they changed it. I suppose that they are still ironing out the kinks.
Where is the point where I get a gun? .... THAT HE THROWS AWAY!
Oh Ryan! These are most-definitely better than previews and such because it is more like you are a couple of buds I am sitting on the couch with and starting up a game during that crucial period where I either decide whether I am going to enjoy the game or not.
" @WrenchNinja said:Okay, I'm glad it's not just me. I was looking through the forums to see if there were any other threads about this." What the, did they change the video player? It's all laggy and I can't leave the player paused to load up the whole video. "Yeah they did, something flash based just like Youtube.

2010 really is the future, I can now skip forward to any part of a video without having to freaking wait for it to load!!!!!!!!! It is the future!!!!!!!! I remember the time when, accidentally pushing the back space or a link would be the end of times but now it's the future!!!!!
Looks okay, but the Crystal Chronicles games have never been as interesting to me as the mainstream Final Fantasy games. It just kinda seems like a bone they throw Nintendo to keep them off their back. "You wanted Final Fantasy back on the Nintendo? Here you go, now leave us alone"
Character design and soundtrack seem good enough at least. I almost feel like buying it to offset the surprising amount of FF hate I see around here.
" Final Fantasy character design is about trying to come up with something so ridiculous that no one would ever cosplay it, just to see if someone tries anyway. "This will probably blow your mind then.
From the Paris Japan Expo that was held back in July i believe.
