Eye of Judgement -- The Game That Will Make You Buy a PS3?

Hot Damn! Eye of Judgement smoking hot Gameplay and InterviewVids!

If there is any one game that will make me run out to grab a PS3 ... this is the game.

I've been a CCG junkie in the past ... and this combines two of my most cherished hobbies in life.

Gameplay Movie 4 gives a feel for how the cards will work. Also a nice long interview about the game as well. Sounds like it's going to be a full fledge CCG, with expansions, booster packs and so forth. Wizards of the Coast and Hasbro are involved in making the game and booster pack distribution.

For those saying it won't sell, from what I understand this type of gaming is extremely popular in Japanese Arcades right now ... I have a feeling the game will do extremely well in Japan and could possibly catch fire here in North America too.

Watch the Interview Vid ... it lay's it all out how the game works.

    Not really my kind of game but I really like the idea! I'm all for original ways to play games.

    I admit to not having seen the videos, but doesn't a 3x3 playing field seem a bit constricting? Awesome idea for the most part, though.

    If Sony wanted to make the big bucks, they'd get together with Konami with this technology and make a Yu-Gi-Oh game.

    Do the cards come with the game? Or just some basics, and I'll have to buy boosters for it?

    Watch the video, the interview one first then gameplay vids. It is really unique what they are doing with this title.

    Cards come with the game (starter) and then you have to buy boosters. Wizards of the Coast and Hasbro are involved in making the game so it's going to have a MTG type bent.

    A cool trick, but is it actually any fun? The technology has applications for sure, but I haven't seen anything interesting about this game in particular.

    I'll admit, if I owned a PS3, I'd pick this up.

    Not quite enough to make me want to buy it though. :P

    Mostly because it took me 6 years to drop MTG. Last thing I need is another TCG.

    I like the idea but the tech behind it seems like it could have been done on the PS2, where it would actually see some sales. Then again, people spent $TEXAS on just the cards for some CCGs, so I suppose anything's possible.

    TCGs are evil. They suck huge amounts of money right out of your pockets without you even realizing it. Well that's what happened to most of my first job's money anyways... :(

    This looks pretty awesome. I wouldn't buy a PS3 for it (but I wouldn't buy any console for just one game), but it does look interesting. In the videos I saw, when they dragged the actual card, the monster would stay in place and then after a few seconds teleport on top of the card, which I really hope gets tweaked. It needs to be a bit more fluid, but if they actually react like I saw in another video, where someone stuck his finger near this dragon's mouth and it snapped at it, that is pure win. That's the kind of stuff of the future. The future that I wanted when I was a kid. Of course, I wanted holographic games as a kid too but that cowboy game with the playing field being like a circle and square and triangle turned out to be shit, so

    Well I forgot what I was getting at.

    It will be hugely successful in Japan I think. They have arcade machines that play these sorts of games over there complete with the purchase of cards and booster packs.

    North America I suspect there will be a hardcore audience that develops but the game will probaly remain relatively niche due to the expensive cost of entry -- a PS3.

    How dependant is the card game on the system? Could I play this game with a friend without the PS3 looming over us? Or does the PS3 do some calculations that I couldn't do myself?

    If this is marketed right this could make a mint for Sony, kid's these days are spoiled and this this comes out near the holiday season and gets marketed toward kids, kids will be asking for a PS3 and this and they will get it. Kids who generally like yugioh have no concept of money.

    We don't know but if Hasbro and wotc are involved I don't think its going to be all that much, they like money too much to bank on cards selling only to console/hardware owners.

    I'd probably pick up MtG again if they did something like this.

    Then again, a similar game would probably be just as good.

    I'm trying to look at this from a business perspective.

    I mean, either the Card company want the card game to be independant, with the PS3 being a possible feature. This means the PS3 attachment sales might hurt a bit.

    OR

    The PS3 company wants the Game to be a necessity. Which means the sales of the cards themselves might hurt, as you are restricting your consumers to only PS3 owners that also like TCGs.

    Either way it looks like someone is going to be alienated. Those that both have a PS3 and love TCGs are in heaven... just trying to figure out if anyone outside of that range would pick this up.

    Well like I said kids have no concept of money, and this essentially being real life yugioh. If this is marketed right this game could push consoles right into kids hands, I wouldn't be surprised if for the holidays we maybe see a discounted EoJ-PS3 bundle marketed towards kids.

    This game will be massive in Japan.

    Trust me.

    They have arcades dedicated to card games that work under the same concept.

    How well it does in North America is probaly a secondary concern to how well it does in Japan where the PS3 has a decent market share.

    It looks like it would be fun, but a little too expensive. The camera, the game, and the cards? That's just too much and I already have a PS3.

    In the interview it say's the camera comes with the game.

    But yeah if you don't already have a PS3, it is definately an expensive proposition. In my case however I've just been waiting for an exclusive game to come along to justify the purchase of a PS3.

    This is that game.

    Other than seeing your cards do neat stuff, what does this have over a normal card game?

    It's an online CCG that offers the physical collectable aspect that no other online CCG has been able to do before.

    As for what it does over a normal card game ... you said it yourself, seeing your cards do 'neat' stuff on the screen. You also have the added benefit of the computing power to crunch the numbers in terms of terrain benefits/keeping track of spells/stat modifyers.

    This is the kind of game that I would stay up late at night dreaming about as a little kid.

    My only real hope is that the use the camera/PS3 aspect of it to do something deep and technical with the card game and don't try to make something cheap, shallow but apealing to kids like Yugioh.

    I mean, if you can have your cards battle in a 3d area you ought to be able to do all sorts of interesting things with line of sight, numbers, physics, terain etc.

    Don't know if it will be enough to make me shell out all the cash for a PS3, but still interesting.

    I have a feeling that initially the game will be fairly basic (your standard MTG style CCG), with booster packs adding in new concepts as the game matures.

    And you are right, there is a crapload of interesting things they could do with a 3D arena.

    From the videos, it looks like it won't use the 3d to do anything interesting like that. It looks like each card is confined to a square and only moves out of it to attack. I think a 3d card game with the eye toy could do some interesting things.

    Edit: Is this just a card game or a collectible card game with booster packs and stuff like that?

    This does look mighty fine. If its as addictive as Culdcept, sign me up. The article did mention cheating a little bit, like how you can basically just shuffle through your deck and find a card you need when its your turn. How would they get around that whole aspect if this goes online? Its pretty much a given that a majority of people who play online would be douchebags.

    Collectible, I suppose, which sucks. Looks pretty interesting, but I already quit Magic twice, because I simply couldn't afford to stay competetive. After a while, it just comes down to who can spend the most money. (especially in this case, when you add up PS3 + game w/camera (probably not sold at $60, I'd imagine) + constant booster packs = the kids aren't going to college). Kudos on the tech, though, that's pretty nifty.

    I'd imagine that it wouldn't be all that difficult to have your deck displayed on-screen so that the other player would be able to see it at all times. That doesn't solve the problem of stacking the deck pre-game, but it would greatly eliminate situational cheating.

    Still, if your opponent saw you cheat, could they do anything other than forfeit the game?
