A complete visual overhaul has been performed to bring this revered title to the highest graphical quality ever. Fully optimized for the wide screen, texts have been sharpened and textures have been upgraded on characters, backgrounds and in-game objects.

Assassin’s Creed: Liberation HD Comparison Screenshots

Cannot WAIT to try this title out!

Bravely Default: Demo Impressions!

On January 2nd, there was a Bravely Default demo launched on the Nintendo 3DS e-shop channel. This demo is some side quests not featured in the game to give gamers a taste of the mechanics and gameplay they can look forward to when the game launches February 7th in the US.

Bravely Default is the latest JRPG from developer Silicon Studio (3D Dot Game Hero) and publisher by BD1Square Enix. This game is a throwback in ways to the harden Final Fantasy game days, while mixing in some new mechanics. Players in the demo have a team of four characters (Tiz, Agnes, Ringabel, and Edea) and you talk to villagers to get side quests to complete. The side quests range from collecting beast livers by defeating enemies on the world map to having to slay a Dragon. When players finish each task, they are rewarded with money and an item or two. It is advised though, that players stick close to the town for a little bit to level up and earn some money to buy better gear to assist in these quests.

As well as leveling up your character (which the max level in the demo is level 20 by the way), you also can assign a job to each character. As you progress in level, you get more useful skills. The demo offers the following job classes: Freelancer, Knight, Black Mage, White Mage, Red Mage, Ninja, Performer, Valkyrie, and Swordmaster. The max level for each job in the demo is level 4. If you are someone who just wants to go through the demo without random encounters and just go straight to the mid boss, you can adjust the frequency of encounters to be nonexistent or very frequent.

BD2The mechanics they added to the battle system are called “Brave” and “Default”.  Players can use these functions to help their characters attack more or be defensive. The brave command can be used up to four times in the menu each turn to allow the character four powerful moves. The trade off with this is that the character will have less chance reacting to an enemy’s assault while waiting for their BP to go back up to normal. Default allows your character to defend and react after an enemy attacks.

Magic use is tracked using MP and each spell has the set MP cost. You learn spells by going into a shop and buying the scroll to learn the spell. There isn’t too high of a spell list in the demo, since players can only learn up to level three spells (cura, fira, etc.).

Another aspect of the game is to level up shops. That is done via a menu on your touch screen. Players select an obstacle to remove which then allows you to start working on leveling a shop when the task is complete. When players select a task, the game will display the time estimated to finish. This is where street passes with other people who play the demo comes in handy! With every street pass, that adds one villager to the village that can assist with upgrades. You can work on simultaneous upgrades or have the villagers work together to shorten the length a task takes. Each shop (item, armor, accessories, weapon) can be leveled up with their max being level 3 in the demo. The upgrade will show players what items would be available in shop once the upgrade is finished.  If an upgrade takes five hours and you are putting your system aside for a bit, be sure to leave it on the upgrade screen and leave your system in sleep mode! This will allow the task time to go down, but not add to your gameplay time. This is advised heavily as well since the demo will only allow you to launch the software 30 times.

So what do you get out of playing the demo that can help you when you get the actual full game in February? Well, there are seven bonuses that you can earn from the gameplay in the demo. These give you items to help you start off your actual game! Also in the battle menu, players can use the “summon friend” function and summon help from characters in your demo log. A few of your street passes also should roll over as well!

Needless to say, the demo is definitely worth a download to check out. It’ll give you enough of a glimpse to give you a feel for the game without spoiling any of the story for the full game! So please check it out and support the game’s official release! The full fledge game will be priced at $39.99 and also has a collector’s edition available which comes with an art Book, soundtrack CD, and 34 Augmented-Reality Cards for $54.99.
