zippdementia I'm best known for my extensive work in the fields of this and that. I tend to be better at that, though I have more fun with this.

I'm an odd jobber with an even personality who isn't afraid to roll with the punches but prefers to dodge them when able.

... but damn I do have to give credit for fantastic art direction. I'd play it even through any griping I may have, simply because it's beautifully nostalgic.

Game in question...

Yeah, I just saw this video earlier today and it really looks fantastic. Somehow Studio Ghibli's stuff just has a distinct look to it, you know? (Although I did get flashbacks of cel-shaded Link as soon as I saw the kid running. He has, like, the exact same animation.)

I just hope this doesn't wind up being a generic JRPG, because the generic ones really bore the hell out of me. The combat doesn't look all that great from this trailer, but still, I'm optimistic.

The graphics are nice, but I don't care for the Pokeman combat. I'm getting bad "Jade Cocoon" flashbacks.

I would agree with those sentiments. I don't think this is the one to turn me on to RPGs again, even with how beautiful it is.

But it's a step in the right direction. Sometimes, with all these super-realistic graphic endeavors, we forget how awesome simplicity looks.

Amen. The upcoming Zelda is also a nice example of this approach. Simplicity and eye-catching colors are more impressive than "realism."
