    Okay, colour me interested. That looks like a fun little game. Though "little" is an understatement, the locales and enemies already look pretty epic.

    I'd actually heard about this, the book allows you to equip different "words" and the words are your magic or something like that. Not sure if it includes different word combos for different effects, I'll need to find the article on it.

    Awesome. So ONE TFW-er on board.

    Also, one more link that sums up what this game's about:

    Nier's ESRB description makes it sound like an otaku's dream game | Shogun Gamer: Video Game News Community: Interviews, News, Reviews and Forum

    After reading that, and you're still not excited for it, well, I'm afraid we just could never really be friends. :D

    I can think of some FANTASTIC phrases that would get ultra combos.

    Unfortunately I doubt any of them will be included :(

    Bumped because the Enix game no one cares about or talks to or plays in any reindeer games is only a week away.

    I only know about this game from a friend who mentioned it to me that there is controversy regarding a character who is a hermaphrodite :inquisiti

    Is this the game that has completely different versions between the Xbox and PS3? Where the Xbox's version is more 'westernized' while the PS3 one is more anime-ish?

    Isnt it just theres two versions being released. One with a westernised main character that will be released globally and another with a more japanese style main character that will stay in Asia? Really stupid decision.

    That's probably what it was. Yea, I agree it's a stupid decision, I say release em both globally and see what does better.

    As an obvious proponent of this game, I honestly think that even ONE version of this title isn't going to sell very well here in the States.

    You almost make that sound like a bad thing.
