Anyone else looking forward to Lost Odyssey?

I never realized how much this game was, to me, a true sequel to Final Fantasy (after FF X).  I picked up the strat guide and am just blown away by how close to the FF series this is.

And I love it.

I've been dis-liking the FF series more and more which each game they come out with.  FFXI (Online) was interesting but didn't do it for me.  FFXII felt like a single player MMO.  FFXIII looks like more of the same.  Don't get me wrong, the graphics in FFXII were amazing... But if I wanted to play an MMO, I'd play an MMO.

I don't want realtime combat.  I don't want things that really aren't Final Fantasy, to me.

Blue Dragon was close... But there were enough things that were "off" to me that it just ended up not working for me.  That's why I'm really looking forward to Lost Odyssey.  I've got no chance in hell of actually finishing it.  That's one of the reasons I have the strat guide... To try and help me through it.  If I can find someone that wants to play through it with me (Calling all co-pilots!) that'd certainly help, too.

I mean beyond the turn-based combat they have someone named "Sed".  Heh.  Everything else I've seen and read about it makes it feel like it's what a Final Fantasy game *should* be.  About the only thing I haven't seen so far is their version of a Chocobo. 

But if that never shows up, I'm sure I'll be able to live. =)
