hands up anyone that is suprised by this. WKC series is a dud

VampiricDragon2688d ago (Edited 2688d ago )

The series is a good series

Its not there fault the only thing people buy are shooters and racing games there or shooters and action games here

RPGs,fighters, puzzle, platformers, action-adventure,vns have always been under appreciated.

zootang2688d ago

I didn't even know it was out, I'm going to go and buy this now.

LightofDarkness2688d ago

Ha, same here, Zootang. Me go buy now.

rabidpancakeburglar2688d ago

I'll put my hand up, but at the same time it's only been out 4 days in the UK.

TBM2688d ago (Edited 2688d ago )

I'll be picking it up when it releases here in the states. I liked the first one and im sure i'll enjoy part 2.

Again I don't let others decide for me what games I should buy, and I sure as hell ain't going to allow them to dictate which games I should enjoy and like.

This is another problem I have with this gen its all about sales, sales, sales. Im glad there are some devs out there who don't let that get in the way of what they want make.

phoenixdown2688d ago

what do you expect? jrpgs don't have mass appeal like racers and shooters do all over the world.

Kee2688d ago

White Knight Chronicles came out at the wrong time. We'd already had Final Fantasy XII which was extremely similar (and better) to it/ than it.
Either way, I have no desire to play the second one at least until I've beaten the first which I kind of got about half way through and got stuck on a poorly explained quest.

Deadman_Senji2688d ago

It's the UK...who cares?

They don't even play jrpgs.

LightofDarkness2688d ago

They also happen to be the largest gaming market in Europe. So there's that.

Deadman_Senji2687d ago

-sighs- They really dont. Europe is pretty much PC gaming.

A vast minority actually play and enjoy JRPGs.

rabidpancakeburglar2687d ago

Europe may be PC gaming but the UK is almost all console gaming, so to say that "A vast minority actually play and enjoy JRPGs" then you would be pretty wrong.

jack_burt0n2688d ago

Its been marked UP at retail because its going to be a niche title, that means few ppl pick it up at full price.

plmkoh2688d ago

Yes I'm guilty of that, I'm gonna pay 38pounds for it.

FamilyGuy2687d ago

Is 38 pounds OVER paying? I thought all games came out around that price. :/

mac_sparrow2687d ago

Exactly why I'm waiting Jack. I loved the first and will likely love the second, but even though I wanted it day one I have always thought that it will get a price drop rather quickly.
