My copy of Lost Odyssey for the Xbox 360 arrived today. I shouldn't really buy JRPGs. They only piss me off. This one so far has been about an hour of cut scenes and running around to about 15 minutes of actual combat so far. It's nice though. I never finish them but I have to admit that I do enjoy the time I put into them. Only up to a point though. Then the autistic accountant syndrome I mentioned previously kicks in. They try so hard to be "epic" and the end result (Including FFVII you fanboys) always reads like bad emo fantasy fanfic. Also who's bright idea was it that your hero and his team needs to spend hours running in circles in the same area to grind levels before you can continue? Doesn't really fit in with the whole epic and heroic feel at all.
I'm hoping Asda have a copy of the new Katamari game when I go shopping tomorrow. I wouldn't mind playing that.
Still nothing I want to buy for the PS3 though. It's getting depressing.
