A triumviate of Folklore vids for your pleasure

Because there are three videos for you to watch today, we've got two hidden after the jump in addition to the Cernunnos Battle video we've slapped above. The other two videos are, respectively, the Faery Lord text adventure and a video on capturing Ids. If you've gotten all the videos from the PS Store and still want to watch these, you might just be looking forward to this game. We are, too, so don't feel bad about that. This is probably the only game Sony has pushed this hard -- it's already got multiple videos, multiple demos, and downloadable packs in the pipeline. They must think it's something special, but we have to ask, do you?

1. This game actually looks pretty cool and under hyped. The use of the sixaxis is pretty good as you try to yank the id or whatever out of things. If you havent played it, when its red you yank up on the controller like your fishing and just got something on the line. It was pretty good.

2. From the japanese demo I played a few months back, this game is very, very good.
I will probably definetly buy it eventually.
You know, when I have money from all of the huge releases the rest of this year is bringing *sigh*

3. The demo is pretty cool but who can play anything but Warhawk right now? ;)

I'm looking forward to this game but it'd be nice if they could fix the camera.

5. I wasn't sure about Folklore until I played the demo and really enjoyed it. The games doesn't really seem to do anything new, but the cumlative whole of what it is makes it fun.
I kinda wish I didn't want it, what with every game ever coming out in the next few months...

6. What beautiful creature and character design. I think this will be another great game and I'm very excited to get more information on this one. The demo was intriguing.

7. This game is extremely special. The feel, the graphics, atmosphere, sound, controls.. it's so gorgeous, and works so well. One thing I love, the environments are all rendered with a much larger perspective than we could do on last-gen machines.

It's hard to describe this, 3d games on ps2 were often rendered so that objects in the background faded quickly in size. You can see this in everything from car games to platformers. The processor couldn't update quick enough the 'large moving background' required by a telephoto or zoom lens.

In this game, when she's in the forest, the trees behind her are huge, the feeling of immersion is much more substantial than in past-gen.

This game is absolutely gorgeous, and remarkably fun to play, a perfect mix of live action and rpg.

I kept thinking, people are going to buy this 2 years from now and go, "How the hell did I miss such an incredible game?"

I went to Gamestop today in some weird hope that I could buy it.

This game has hooked me more than Dirt, and I play mostly car games. I just love the feel and look of it.

The only knock I would give it is the dialogue is not that great. Final Fantasy dialogue seems to be written by professional linguists. This dialogue gets us by. But it's a very minor complaint, because the text is still perfectly functional and not poorly translated... it's just not inspiring. But this is a minor part of an awesome game. From playing the demo, with that criticism, I give it 4/5, so far.
