Level-5 released today the newest trailer for White Knight Chronicles 2 exclusively on the PlayStation 3.
music was awesome to say the least. I really hope the don't take a year to localize it for the US and hope the include the original Japanese voice over because it sounds 1000x better than the english voice over
Believe it or not, many Japanese *love* English voices, in the same way English Speakers love Japanese. I believe it has something to do with people not understanding the language, therefore, thinking it is cooler or sounds better.
I think it has something to do with that, but also because the majority of the time the quality of the voice acting is much better in japanese because they have a much better voice acting industry. In the west we have really only recently begun taking the voice acting seriously but it still has a long way to go before the majority of gaming voice overs will be on the same level as their japanese counterparts.
I don't understand why people like the Japanese VA you are just changing a squeaky english voice to a squeaky japanese voice which you can't understand. I have tried if before as people say the Japanese VA gives a greater sense of emotion which it fail to do for me.
that's because in japan,voice actors are actually famous.in other countries,most people don't know or even care about voice actors.have you ever walked in the streets and saw people saying "oh my god! That's *enter name here* he is voice actor for *insert anime or game here*"? no you haven't but in japan,it is the case so it's natural that japanese voices sound better since it has more interest and fame unlike in the west where almost people don't care that much.an example would be like this: if you have an animated movie from disney (for example the lion king) and instead of the famous actors they brought,they decided to bring voice actors from the games industry (englisg voices) would you have felt that the quality of the voices is the same? it's the same case with games and the difference between japanese and english voice actors ;) http://en.wikipedia.org/wik...
who have never even touched the game. And it's clear that anyone who comments on the SP alone really has no idea the depth of WKC. It's basically an MMORPG-lite with no monthly fees and regular, FREE, updates (rotating quests, new loot). Easily the best multi-player experience I've had this gen. As far as SP goes, the story isn't that bad, and definitely picks up the pace in the last leg of the game. But, like the reviewers, to judge this game as a SP RPG is simply uninformed. Out of my 250 hour save, I spent maybe 50 hours on the story (played through twice to pick up all the new chests in new game+). I probably have at least another 200 hours to hit GR 15, and another 50 hours if I want a platinum in this game. Oh, and my character is fully importable into WKC 2, so all of my hard work is not for naught. The real pull here is online (or solo) questing. In an age of 6 hour games with wonky multi-player modes, talk to me when you're GR 15 and tell me that you haven't gotten your money's worth for a $60 game. And I kind of agree with Lucreto. Who cares about the voices when the vast majority of your playtime is spent in MP mode? As long as the voice-work is serviceable, that's all that matters. That said, if leaving the original Japanese voices allows them to simply subtitle and release the game here faster than the first, then I'm all for it.
I need to add you to my buddy list
Can't say im any bit exicted for WKC2, after renting and playing WKC for a while, i didnt enjoy it at all
I am hoping the second game will be a lot better than the first one. I agree with Hater, OVA is better than the dubbed one.
Meh trailer, but I cannot wait for this game. I absolutely love the first one. ^_^
there's a list of changes they are bringing to WKC2 and i can't wait to see them
The other trailers I saw were better. Prolly pick it up anyways as I love me my RPGS.
Is will the combat system be anything like what was first promised when the game was first shown.
and what was promised ?? i follow WKC since the first reveal back then..and i don't know what they promised that they didn't include knights fights ? (they are) customisable combos (they are) Online ( of course ) customisable town ( for quests and for better item/weapons/armors ) Please state what they promised that they didn't bring in the end.. Even the first leaked gameplay trailer at E3 showed the same ATB bar with mostly the same speed ...
No, the combat was NOTHING like the first reveal of the game so many E3's ago. Of course we know now that was a CG trailer, as the graphics were also much more appealing in that trailer... but if you can't see the difference, you obviously were NOT following it from when they 1st announced it. The combat flow was that of real fighting (not the slow waiting on the ring), and they actually showed the ability to do combo's w/ your team mates unlike anything actually possible in the game. The game's concept was much grander... it may be that they had a larger vision than the hardware allows at this time... but I hope that's the direction that jrpg's go in, b/c it was awesome.
There's also the thing about a monster w/o a ranged attack hitting you from dozens of feet away.
ok let's stop the e3 2006 reveal was a cutscene CG trailer , like eight days .. Every trailer AFter this one showed the gameplay WKC got in final .. you got stuck in the first trailer and forgot to check the rest ? here it is the CG trailer of e3 2006 ..: http://www.youtube.com/watc... HERE you go One of the first gameplay video we got ( TGS 2007 ) http://www.youtube.com/watc... there was a E3 gameplay vid too but i can't find it .. See the différence ???..now you can RE start complaining that CGs trailers are not the real thing ...GOOD LUCK WITH THAT ... THE GAMEPLAY of WKC was ALWAYS the one we've got ...
Just saying, that given the first trailer and what's been done on the PS3 so far, that the proposed gameplay if not the graphic quality should be more than possible in WKC2. If the dev put the work in. There's also the issue of the online component being tacked on after the game was out in Japan. Now that that they've had the time to refine it, it can only be better. Hopefully.
I can see why they didn't save that one for E3. The first game didn't get the best reception. Hopefully the devs have learned from their mistakes, although it does look eerily similar.
I think it's funny how game critics hated the first game and I found it interesting and fun. I come here and it seems like most people, not all, but most enjoyed the game.
I hope its a good game, and I hope that the article that said it would be sold with the first WKC is true
The dude with the dark bird type armour, reminded me of Dark Cecil from FFIV. The first one was not the best RPG, but goddamn does it draw you in, in an old school fashion. Remember Final Fantasy didn't get great till IV, so i'm in AGAIN.
And seems equally horrid as the initial tragedy
hey look Labwarrior one of the biggest 360 fanboys made a comment on that site lol.
Lol, that kid is just making people laughing hard: http://img685.imageshack.us...
Well it's no surprise, that's coming from the same individual who thinks Two Worlds is a better game than Oblivion in addition to calling The Last Remnant a masterpiece. Not making this stuff up either.
Eh, the original wasn't all that compelling. I need to see a LOT in order to impress me.
If i was such a huge 360 fanboy, then how come i consider Demon SOul (PS3 exclusive) as one of the best games i have ever played ? Garbage is garbage, tht is all, when i see garbage i cant call it gold, simple as that
you talk rubbish as usual, just to let you know i have spent 60hrs on WKC and 160hrs on ffxiii and in my view all ffxiii has is good graphics and WKC overall is just so much better, it's like a MMORPG, it has massive areas and the online mode is so addictive
just to let you all know WKC is a very underrated and very uderappreciated people are so willing to bash it because of the biased reviews against it, it is a least a 8/10, now that it's £20 in game what exactly is stopping you all from trying it out, the online mode which is very much like a MMORPG is more than worth that price alone!! OMG I JUST WATCHED THE TRAILER EPIC, ALL OUT WAR, YES PLEASE!!!
wow is this for psp? this is the bets looking psp game ever.
It is exactly because it is generic as a MMORPG that makes it crap, for me at least I hate that kind of games with a passion BTW FF13 was mediocre, check Demon Soul for greatness
ANd done ! no more bubbles !! We can start talking WKC2 in peace now ..
I just want them to fix the whole "enemy is out of your range but can still attack you from behind walls or entire floors above or below you" feature. How was this not an issue to the devs? It's a problem. Fix it. I really want to love this game...
If I'd been able to enjoy the first one, I'd be excited... Granted, I never got so far as testing out the online aspects of the game, which truly did sound cool. But the single player portion was SOOO flat that I just lost interest. And I really wanted the game to be good... I ignored all of the reviews and got it anyway! A lot of the rpg's I enjoyed last gen scored in the 6-7 range anyway... so the scores didn't phase me. But the main draw to WKC was supposed to be the combat, and it just felt awfully flat. If the story had been more intriguing I might have trudged on... Hopefully the fact that they spent NO ENERGY AT ALL updating the graphics engine means that they have addressed the combat, the story, or both. If they've AT LEAST managed to make the combat feel more engaging, I'd forgive everything else and purchase it though.
The online portion of the game was its heart and soul. Its where you would gotten %99 of enjoyment out of the game. I hopped online with it as soon as i could and that alone is what got me to finish the main story (twice, new game+). You had to be at end game to access all the online/solo maps. I have 817hrs in the game and i'm still playing, there's no way I'm skipping part 2.
YEA ! WKC 2
but I'm so glad to see Leonard flying through the air and using the ark. Finally having some fun with it and dicking around. Sure you can tell us that "ha ha, this is great" but even after 100 times I still don't believe you. Now my 4 foot tall constantly smirking battle tank, he's a bundle of fun ;)
