Will buy. No question whatsoever.
So, this is about the only game coming out in July. Fair warning, this is pretty strictly for fans of niche-Japanese stuff and is a NISA published game.
I personally think the style they use looks pretty cool and it seems fairly interesting. Ordered the LE off of the NISA store. That's out of stock, but you can still buy the standard edition directly from them here: http://store.nisamerica.com/Games/time-eternity-std I prefer to go through their company website directly rather than go through Amazon or Gamestop (also you can only buy the LE directly from them).
I suggest watching the Developer Demo for a feel for the gameplay.

That first trailer is like one of the worst trailer I've ever seen. Might buy it, apparently it's already out in europe for some reason.
I'm pretty skeptical about this one. The reviews have been all over the map, though I've seen more bad ones than good ones. The development companies previous games I've played (the Luminous Arc games) were all pretty uninspired as well. I'd be curious to know what you think once you have it in hand. Think I'm probably passing at this point.
That run animation... can't play this game.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure that anyone who buys all the JRPGs that NISA ports knows that they aren't exactly the best games in the world. See: Hyperdimension Neptunia.
This is the first NIS game Im passing on at release. The Japanese release has been getting pretty middling reviews as Goldenmean mentioned. Just looks to be more style than substance and I have enough of those on my NIS shelf already. Ill let you guys guinea pig this one and may pick it up later.
I should qualify my earlier statement: My wife believes that Nippon Ichi can do no wrong, ever. Therefore, will buy.
If any of the gags are nearly as funny as Neptunia was, though, that alone will be worth it.
I've also recently got into the Neptunia series. I was told my some diehard JRPG people to skip the first one as it was awful and just play through Mk2. It's been randomly fun, will probably pick up Victory when I can.
Image Epoch, and they've mostly done a lot of forgettable portable RPGs.
Any NIS developed games are must buys for me, but I haven't been all that wild about a lot of what they've chosen to publish thus far.
Not even entirely sure why I played the second one after finding the first so shrugworthy. Must have been desperate for a commute game at the time.
Has anyone tried Arc Rise Fantasia? That looks to be their first game for an actual console instead of a handheld.
Dragon's Crown is no maybe for me, that is a must buy. My only concern about it is Vita Vs. PS3, heavily leaning towards the PS3 version atm. I really wish it was a cross-buy title (every game like that should be).
Heh, I was about to chime in saying "I thought Tales of Xilia was releasing in August?" and then I remembered that it just turned July.
I've got ToX, Dragon's Crown and SMT IV all in pre-order form.
I'll almost certainly grab Kingdom Hearts remix, Disgaea D2, The Witch and the Hundred Knights, and Guided Fate Paradox as well. If this console generation is anything like the last one, I'll probably still be buying PS3 games for a year or two after the PS4 launch. There's hardly ever any good RPGs early on in the launch of a new console, and there's usually several still queued up on the old system. Really, is there *anything* RPG-ish I should have my eye on for the Xbone or the PS4? Seemed pretty dead to me last time I looked.
Sadly The Witch and the Hundred Knights probably won't be out until 2014 in NA. I definitely think we'll still be seeing PS3 RPGs a year or two into the PS4's launch like the PS2 to PS3 (at least in NA, with how long localizations can take). Though, hopefully the smaller developers who do all these RPGs make will make the jump to the PS4 faster than they did to the PS3 due to how much easier the PS4 should be to develop games on for them. They're never concerned with pushing the limits of a system, so it'll probably be much cheaper for them to develop on it too.
So, finally got around to playing this. I'm actually enjoying it quite a bit. The 3D environments are bland as hell, but the 2D art is pretty good. The voice work is solid and the battle system is fun. Once you get a bit into it and get some more abilities it's definitely entertaining, especially with blocking and dodging stuff and timing attack frames plus the different distances. It's a little easy, but still a lot more than just button mashing.
