Magna Carta II Ideal vs Actuality

magna-carta-2-wallaper-3

RPG fans have been greatly enthused by the most promising trailers of Xbox 360 RPG Magna Carta II, but with the release of the demo doubts have swiftly been raised…

The promising trailer:

The state of affairs revealed in the demo:

magna-carta-2-3
magna-carta-2-2
magna-carta-2-4
magna-carta-2-5
magna-carta-2-6
magna-carta-2-7
magna-carta-2-8
magna-carta-2
magna-vsync

Poor quality textures and low resolution are one problem complained of, and Vsync and popup issues apparently abound.

However, at least in Japan the game has none other than Aya Hirano, so perhaps its success is assured…

The game is due for release (in English) in October.

    Wow this game will suck so hard. The graphics suck, and i bet the game will suck, Magna Cata 1 sucked, and this one looks no different.

    Given that it's still a demo and any actual work therein is not representative of the finished product, it looks to be visually stunning. That is, IF they do fix all the issues apparent with the demo.

    360 vs. PS3, PS3 vs. 360... I thought this topic was about a game, not witch console makes you cream your pants. Really guys can't we talk about game play instead of this childish argument. It dose not prove anything and its really old.

    If you like Halo and Gears of War, you probably have a 360. If you like Metal Gear Solid and God of War you probably have a PS3.

    The real problem is for people who like Halo and God of War. Two hugeass consoles are a bit of an investment, so it's usually one or the other.

    It's not about that actually, it's about 1 game being released on 2 different consoles, whereas one is inferior to the other. Sometimes the 360 version is better, sometimes the PS3 version is better. This makes pretty much everyone rage.

    Like I have ToV for the Xbox 360 T_T

    I played Magna Carta: Crimson Stigmata on PS2 and it sucked. This second game is sure to be the same. The only thing the first game had going for it is Hyung Tae Kim's art.

    Meh. I don't think it looks too bad... this is, after all, what most RPGs does.
    We all know preview trailers and game arts can't be expected to be a faithful representation to the full game.

    And in the end, if the gameplay and plot are good, I see no problems.

    Oh yeah, and I couldn't careless if this game is for PS3 or XBox 360... both consoles have good games and good technical specs.

    And to all fanboys who commented here: GO FUCK YOURSELVES.
    Get your beloved console and shove it up your asses.
    No one wants to know your personal opinnion about them.
    I fucking hate your guts.

    Have a nice weekend. :D

    What's the point in getting so hyped about Aya Hirano in there and some others I've also recognize if the western version won't get Japanese voices. It was already announced by Bandai Namco that there will be no Japanese voices in US version, same crap like Gundam Musou 2.

    Fanboyism is a virus born in the minds of who has very little things to do in real life: and there are more awesome things to do in real life than criticize a game system.

    Anyways...I'll buy PS3 only because is completely region free.

    You can tell he Sony fanboys are desperate for this or they wouldn't post so much and cry about it so much. It's not going to be the best JRPG in the world but they're still fucking bawwwing. jeeze these guys suck at life.

    IF you want JRPG so bad either buy a 360 or shut up and don't expect so much. You've bought the wrong console (even if that is just for the moment). Anyway PS3 has some good games and 360 has some good games so buy which you want but if you want JRPG and you have a PS3 do the smart thing and wait your fucking shoes off or get a 360.

    The PS3 is region free though, would be nice to have the JP versions of JRPG. For the people who understand Japanese, though.

    With the errors of Magna Carta 1 and the game engine the developers are using... I don't think even the XBox 360 RPG community is holding their breath for this game. The character art looks nice though, hopefully they make an artbook like BlazBlue that might guarantee better sales even if the game sucks xD.

    On a side note Sony fanboys you make me ashamed that I spent $500 on a gaming system that I love. I'm sure Xbox 360 owners feel the same as well. All consoles have their problems Delay Station 3, Crash Box Please Fix Me, hell even the Nintendo WiiScam*cough*; it doesn't mean you should boast about the games or even the console, because even though you're a "fan" of the console in the end we all are just consumers buying a product in the developer's eyes, so you're being a fan doesn't prove crap except your own ignorance.

    Heavy Rain, White Knigth Chronicles, Demon's Soul, ToV v1.0 and soon of after a revised and patched version of Magna Carta II with the Japanes Dub included at the Occidental vesrion...

    PS3 wins... even hardcore multiplatarform fighting games sells better at ps3... look at BLAZBLUE its out of stock at ps3, on 360? there are offers...xD

    Sure SFIV and soul Calibur IV before, and Tekken 6 and KOFXII soon will sell better! because on shittbox360's controller you only can play some games...

    I've always loved Hyung Tae Kim's artwork. Unfortunately it is a lot harder to put his artwork into a 3D, animated image.

    What is it about Japanese developers that won't let them develop a decent RPG for the 360? Good RPGs on the 360 have been done--e.g. Fallout 3 (in b4 NMA)--but so far all the Japanese RPGs have sucked pretty bad. Even Nippon Icchi faltered on that console.

    I think it's a sign of immaturity in the Japanese RPG. In the west, non-video-game RPGs are much more common and come in a staggering, experimental variety, whereas Japanese RPGs are much rarer and... well, the first one we got over officially, Maid RPG, was less than inspiring. Methinks Japanese developers need a few rounds of Godlike or Kill Puppies For Satan or Mage: The Awakening/Ascension or Ars Magica or the Buffy the Vampire Slayer RPG or...

    lol it's magna fking carta what did people fking expect, Final Fantasy XIII,,,,,hmmm? Honestly xbros have this tendency to hype games that are exclusively in their platform. Sure so do playbros but lets be honest this is magna carta for crying out loud. Plant your face in a pillow and scream your lounges out about how awesome you think ur console is because it has another exclusive that ain't a system seller because no one but you cares. Seriously I was hyped for ToV on the 360 until it was confirmed that the balance was ruined (shared overlimit system? Someone got trolled into believing they where getting a tales games even the wiibros got trolled with ToS2). Now lets all keep eating our popcorn and wait for the next wave of shitstorm to hit so we can toss that popcorn in the air and go OMG DID YOU SEE THAT. Gossip gossip gossip.

    Only children with cheap TVs post stuff like that.

    I have a 46" 1080p TV and Blu-ray looks great, and I have a job so I can spend a couple bucks extra to buy a Blu-ray instead of a DVD.

    The PS3 is the best Blu-ray player so it practically paid for it's self just because of that for me, and I get to play some PS2, PS3 games on it as well, even if half the PS3 games aren't using the systems potential being they are 360 ports and ports never work out well.

    The 360 was and remains the lower scale, more affordable system of the two and because of that it will always be more popular the way Honda Accords out sell 1 series BMWs. Get to the market first and make a cheaper product that works well enough is always the best business model.

U fucking talk about inferior version when Tales of Vesperia has like 1/4 more contents than your sorry ass version. And when those son of a bitch of Xboots try to compare the 2 versions, they purposefully use darker background for PS3 and brighter ones for XMOTHERFUCKINGSHITBOX and they called their trashy version "superior" LOLOLOLOLOL.

    If your Blu-ray drive died, you must have tried to dickwash it. It's for CD's, not for masturbation. Use your Wii for that.

    Funny, I could say exactly the same thing about my PS3, what with the blu ray drive breaking a month out of warranty, and Sony wanting hundreds of dollars to fix it. Fuck them.

    Truth about the ToV having all those extras on the PS3, though I doubt the xbox 360 will admit defeat like that. I've heard several rumors about DLC going to be released for the 360, I'll pray for that.

    If not, I'll be having a ps3 sooner or later.

    You forgot that PS3 demo of TOV runs at lower resolution than xbox 360 one and is more blurry.
    But obviously you never see a news talking about that here.

    Nice try though.

    PS3 ToV has a loli
    360 does not

    PS3 wins

    Sorry about your 360 purchase, those of us who are successful at life own both. And a Wii they never play.

    In other news, the combat in this game looks somewhat interesting at least. It will be a nice bargain basement buy for sure.
