    Is anyone following this game, it looks pretty cool but kind of geeky at the same time. What does everyone think? I think that something this innovative deserves a look.

    The game comes with all this stuff (Minus TV and PS3 of course)

    This image kind of tripped me out as the creatures appear from the card you play.

    When I first saw it, my nuts curled up... Especially the demo of the guy poking at the dragon and the dragon reacting to his finger and snapping back at him. The only problem is that I'm not a fan of card games, but the game looks so cool that I may actually try it

    Thats what I mean, something this unique definitely deserves a try, as long as the reviews are not super horrible (less than 5) I will pick it up.

    The first thing I thought of when I saw the first video of it a while back was the "Star Wars" holagram Chess game. I don't know if you've seen that video Tony, but the guy picks up the card, and the little dragon moves with his movement of the card, then he pokes his finger at the graphic of the dragon while he's holding the card up, and the dragon reacts and snaps back at him.

    That looks like a use of camera and console technology that finally seems worth a damn, only problem is, I hate trading card games =\

    Ditto, that's my only problem with this whole thing..... but I'm going to read up on it, because the grid layout makes it a bit more RTSish, and if it's a little bit like Phantasy Star Cards, that it's not too bad to experience this cool use of tech.

    Nope, unfortunately not, but I think.. and don't quote me on it, but I think it was on the PSN, on the E3 reel from this year. It was like a quick flash of the actual video which I downloaded from IGN months ago.

    I found it! It's on the second page of ign's videos, it was cool like he scared it and it snapped back at him. This is the kind of interactive play that would define a system, now if only I can get past the card aspect.

    That's a pretty cool and innovative idea.

    I'd like to see what another company would do with that same tech, but I'm not interested in this because cards games are lame (imo).

    Hey tony can you point me to that video? Back when the Eyetoy was a baby, they showed some ridiculous tech videos, that obviously never came to fruition, but they were part of the reason why I wasn't drooling at the concept of the Wii. Yes the controller's motion sensing is awesome, but there was one demo on the Eyetoy that had a guy leaning to the right and the perspective on the FPS leaned around a wall with him. Then another one had him holding a small stick with a green ball attached. As he swung the ball around the weapon ball and chain swung around on screen... Basically, the Wiimote without the need for batteries.

    The problem is marketting something like this... and I mean marketting the living shit out of it. I had the eyetoy and I took it to the school I worked at, and the kids, went insane, and this was just with the little cheesy games, like wiping the window and popping the bubbles. Take the tech showed on this card game to the next level and market it right, and video games might advance. But until that happens people won't even know what's going on.
    The Wii is nothing new, Nintendo is just smarter at marketting it.

    nevermind, found it.

    Definitely check out the video on this page for some cool shit....

    It is a cool idea, too bad card games like that suck it.

    I can't really imagine what else it would be good for, though. Real board games might be cool.

    Actually, this wasn't the video I saw. It was part of a bigger montage of games, and there's a quick seen of the guy holding the card up and poking the dragon on the snout. But that was still a cool demo.

    I want the rubber ducky card lol. But seriously the wii just took the light gun tech and enhanced it and added a motion sensor and called it innovative, which it is, but we have seen things like it before hell the stupid little plug in play games use something very similar. The guys in my classes are flipping out on this concept (game design class) but they are a bunch of little nerds and love anything made by wizards of the coast, but to me this seems like it would be the future. If only their was a way to get a bunch of money and me and you develop something better we could beat out all the next gen systems.

    Ahem....... well, since you mentioned it, bra... how about a card game..... wait, hear me out, but instead of it being like these collect monsters and shit.... Coop with Forgotten Realms folks or Square, and make a Final Fantasy tactics.. The board will be the same, but instead of card game rules, adopt Tactics style rules, where you can only move your card a certain number of squares based on the character's abilities.... If you need to heal a guy with your white mage, you have to move him to the square adjacent... I'm sure the eyetoy can pick out if your moving the card too far. Since the playing field can only be so small, the card's shouldn't be huge (more like small chips), and instead, just spot an image that the eyetoy recognizes as a class or character... IE. Dragoon, Dark Knight. Drow Warrior, etc.... Make a single player story mode, as well as a coop and competative mode.

    So yes, basically your characters will come from cards, but it is not a card game. Imagine FF tactics, but in holagraphic 3D. You can still go buy cards, and maybe unlock a Level 50 Dragoon, that you can bring into battles, or maybe square can hide Cloud or Sephiroth in some decks. But they will only be used once or twice in a battle. Add a cool story and some ridiculously cool 3D summonings, and you might have a Weener.

    Thats what I was thinking tokens in like booster packs would be great definitely better than heroclix and they would still be cost effective to make I am going to start emailing developers and see if they don't just shoot it down instantly. SQEENIX is a good place to start as it already has a huge fanbase for final fantasy that would totally eat up collectible token/figures. Or even like a 21st century dungeon and dragons might be cool instead of always pretending that your a stupid elf or dwarf you could actually see yourself moving in the dungeon as said Stupid elf or dwarf. Man I wish my programming skills were more up to par or I would already be making it. lol

    Email Richard Marks... no not the old 80's singer.... The developer for the Eye Toy. He might have more pull with the developer to get an ear to your idea. I would definitely play that, and if marketed right, so would a lot of people.

    And where would I find his email?

    Edit* Never mind found it.
    I also emailed square enix and this is what they sent me back, they totally avoided the question at hand

    "Thank you for contacting SQUARE ENIX Customer Support,

    We hope this letter answers your questions.

    We suggest that if you are interested in any aspect of creating video
    games, it is very important that you stay in school. Having a college
    degree will not only give you an advantage over other potential
    employees, it will also help build a strong foundation of your work habits and
    possibly your game developing skills.

    Acquiring a job in video game development could take a good deal of
    preparation and experience. Depending on the type of field you are
    interested in, many game developers have backgrounds in different subjects,
    whether it is in Computer Science, Mathematics, Art, Music, etc. We
    highly recommend that you speak with a college career guidance counselor.
    He or she would be able to provide you with information regarding the
    types of classes associated with video game development that should be
    of interest and value to you. They can also inform you about the
    video game colleges, such as Digipen and Full Sail that you can enroll in
    throughout the U.S. For more information on these schools, I'd
    recommend looking up their websites on the internet. However, a degree or
    certificate from specialty or vocational schools such as these is not
    required. We do not have a preference as to which college or school a
    potential employee went to, since much of the job selection is based on
    education and previous experience and work performance.

    We hope that this information has been of some assistance and we wish
    you success in your future endeavors.

    Thanks,
    Neil- SQUARE ENIX Customer Support

    Richard Marks actually wrote me back.

    OMFG He actually wrote me back! This is what he said:

    "Antonio,

    Thank you for the email. We have a variety of projects underway
    looking at
    how to use a camera and PS3 together in new ways. Generally, our group
    provides technology to the games groups, and they tailor it to their
    game.

    A combined collectible and software product such as you suggest is an
    ambitious idea. There are a few companies that could probably do that
    well, but most software groups tend to avoid hardware; it adds to the
    cost
    of goods. But I agree that done correctly, letting real-world objects
    have
    an effect on gameplay could be very interesting.

    I suggest you write a note to the game teams that you think might be
    best for this idea.

    Sincerely,
    Richard Marks
    SCEA R&D
    Manager, Special Projects"

    So you heard it here, we need to bug the game devs if we want something new and let them know that this is the kind of thing that would make a game rock our socks off.

    I played this already and I loved it. I will be picking it up when it is released.

    Enlightening I know, but I dug it :)
