    Final fantasy crystal chronicles : My Life as a King.

    http://na.square-enix.com/mylifeasaking/

    Apparently out according to the SE blog (remember the one they told us to sign up to and then they'd let us know when it launched? It launched but they didn't tell us ).


    Anyway, it claims the game is out in WiiWare, I'm not at home to see if it's true or if it's NA only, anyone got it or any good info about it?


    Edit : Found the press release

    http://blog.wired.com/games/2008/03/wii ... pre-6.html

    Looks like it's a sim game, lame, I was expecting an action game like FF:CC on gamecube.

    There's no battle system, it's more of a sims game...

    Think Dark Cloud without the dungeon crawling.

    Re: Final fantasy crystal chronicles : My Life as a King.

    Are any games on Wiiware actually worth it?

    LostWinds, World of Goo looks fantastic, although I don't know when it'll be out. Dr. Mario comes out next week.

    You're insane man. Did you even try this game? It is very fun imo.

    Sure if you don't like Sim style games then you may not like it. But it is incredibly deep. SE could have easily sold this game on a disc for $40 and people would buy it on name recognition alone.

    If you were to buy the game and the 3 additional races it would cost you a max of $23. Which is still a bargain.

    If you are a fan of sim style games which heavy rpg elements you will love this.

    I played it for 2 hours straight and only stopped bc I got hungry.

    Does it have anything to do with the Crystal Chronicles world or are they just using the name so they don't sully one of the more popular games.

    I'm sure they are counting on the name recognition to help sales.

    But the character models are the same design and art that the CC games have used. And your kingdom does center around a crystal.

    So to that degree yes.

    Re: Final fantasy crystal chronicles : My Life as a King.

    Ty finally a voice of reason. I think it is worth $23 as well, I am going to get the additional races.

    Re: Final fantasy crystal chronicles : My Life as a King.

    oh so it's actually good? How well does it compare to a Maxis Simulation game? I am a gigantic fan of Sims1 (Never progressed to sims2).

    Why are there jobs in the game though, I saw them talking about WAR and getting double attack etc.

    You manage the adventurers in your town and send them on quests and such. You can review the results and combat rounds of every individual battle they fight to see how well they are faring. The game actually has a "battle system" so to speak, it's just that the player doesn't control it.


    As to how it compares to the Sims, I couldn't really say, I honestly hate directionless toys (yes, The Sims is a toy, not a game) like the Sims.

    Overall though, if you like games where management is a key role, and you like the idea of building the town that adventurers use, this game is a steal at $15. If you play the New Game+ content with Hard/Very Hard mode, it should also last you 40+ hours of play.

    Re: Final fantasy crystal chronicles : My Life as a King.

    I didn't have a lot of time tonight, so I only made it through the first five days. I've really enjoyed it so far, despite my options still being quite limited. There seems to be quite a bit to micromanage between overall town morale, balancing town progression and adventurer levels, neighborhood layouts, etc. I probably won't have much time to devote to it until the weekend, but I'm looking forward to losing a few hours to it.

    From what I can tell, if you've ever wondered what the monarchy does while your rag-tag group of adventurers is out saving the world, this game is for you.

    I'll probably pick it up, I like the concept, plus I think it might be a good move to support Square at the moment. If FFCC: MLAK has really strong sales, it might entice them to develop more games for WiiWare and possibly actually release their good games on the Virtual Console.

    Re: Final fantasy crystal chronicles : My Life as a King.

    So I go to buy this game, but I turn on my wii and find no wii ware anything!

    Wiiware - 20th may /sigh
    SSBB - 27th JUNE WHAT THE FUCK, I'm skipping it unless they added a blowjob with every disc, out of principle. I'd feel more happy pirating than I would wasting 100$ so they can change "Center" to "Centre".
