The game sounds amazing, I haven't played it yet it's still in it's rapper with all the other games that I haven't played yet (collecting dust in the closet). I'll get to it soon maybe during Christmas break. But really, it's been getting great comments, can't wait to give it a try.

Here's a trailer with some of the game play in it:

I hope people enjoy it while they can, since I doubt there will ever be another one. Shame.

Yup, damn Capcom, they shouldn't have closed down Clover Studios .
The game won't be out over here until next year, but I was finally able to play it on a games convention in Holland('bout 25.000 visitors over 3 days) and it ROCKS, too bad a line of waiting people started developing after me when I started playing(the game had been overlooked until then), so I could only play for 15 minutes or so.
Luckily I've got Gears of War, Call of Duty 3 and other games to keep me entertained until it releases in Europe.

Hi, I wasn't sure if I should put in in music forum or ask here, but, I just wanted to ask a question. Does anyone have the english tranlation of the ending theme "Reset" by Ayaka Hirahara?

Okami.

What a masterpiece of a game. Seriously it's one of the best games out there. It has so many memorable events, it makes me want to cry.

The creative team for Clover has set up their own company; Seeds. They'll produce games for the PS3 and 360.

Aah, that's good news. I love Okami dearly.

Unfortunately, I'm still very attached to the PS2... so much that I don't really care to get a PS3 (if that makes any sense).

My daughter was playing Okami, and we were looking at the extra video segments. Watching one of the untranslated game previews in the extras area, we saw that the Japanese captions had two lines of text. Above each line of the main, large text were lines of smaller characters that were also fewer in number than the main lines. Were the smaller lines written in the character set that I believe children use when first learning written Japanese?

Are you referring to furigana? If so, yes, that is how children learn to read kanji that may have multiple pronounciations.

Yes, that's it. I couldn't remember the name.

I guess the presence of furigana subtitles means that the Japanese don't think Okami is inappropriate for children. In the US it carries a "T" rating. I wonder if that's because the suburban housewives who staff the ratings panels thought it too violent, or whether they objected to Issun's relentless hitting on every woman he meets? It's all so muted, though, with lines about things like "nighttime activities."

My skills with the brush are pretty poor, so I've only played a few hours of Okami. The beauty of the game never fails to impress. I've also been playing Final Fantasy XII again with its enormous panoramas and realistically portrayed worlds. What captivates about Okami is the exact opposite, how beautifully Clover created an entirely fantastic world. Even the humans are drawn as caricatures. A totally caricatured world is hard to find in anime as well. Most studios follow SquareEnix's line and pursue verisimilitude as the goal. Looking down in my signature I see only Hidamari Sketch and Oh! Edo Rocket as even plausibly similar to Okami with the latter, at best, mixed. Shows like Nijuu Mensou, Kure-nai, or Seirei no Mobirito all admirably express the anime norm.

Anyone actually seen a game from Seeds? A Google search brought up this press release about the creation of Seeds from Clover, but the link in that story takes me to a Japanese site that doesn't look to me to have much to do with video games. Or are they specializing in "that" sort of game?

Edit: Just bought Clover's other two games, Viewtiful Joe and God Hand, for $20 each at Amazon. Neither of them look anything like Okami. The first is a side scroller, and the second is a massive beat-em-up game. They both come highly recommended nevertheless. I'm usually an RPG guy, though I do like Ratchet & Clank, especially for the humor. The reviews for both these games suggest they're pretty humorous as well. My daughter might like both of these. She's more accepting of hitting on-screen characters than am I. I'm not sure I could pursue a complete game of God Hand, but we'll see.

I don't know if any of this money will ever get to the original folks from Clover, but I can hope.

Okami HD inbound for PSN, with support for PlayStation Move:




It would be handy if they ever considered a Vita version, too.
