I watched the quick look and listened to the Bombcast and I find it funny how they keep trying to find PS2 games to compare this to and Brad keeps mentioning that this is the best localization he's seen where the characters have a lot of personality and I haven't heard anyone mention Dragon Quest VIII. One of them had to have played it, right? Who reviewed it for Gamespot?
Brad even listed 3 or 4 other Level 5 games, but completely missed it. The design of the world and the GUI elements alone instantly reminded me of the game and I remember people having the same reaction to Yangus's voice actor that Brad is having to the fairy king guy.
I don't know, it just seemed funny to me. DQVIII was probably my most memorable JRPG experience ever and if this game is anything like it, I'd love to play it. Too bad it's only on PS3.
