News for RPG fans

Quote:
Much is made of the oft hyped and upcoming juggernaut’s that are Metal Gear Solid 4, Resistance 2, Final Fantasy XIII, Little Big Planet and to a lesser extent Killzone 2. All have huge hype surrounding them, and that are all exclusive to the PS3. However, lost in the crowd seems to be Level 5’s latest title White Knight Chronicles.

White Knight Chronicles is an RPG that follows the story of Lenard, a boy that finds an ancient artifact that allows him to transform into a 7 meter tall White Knight. Though details of the story are still being closely guarded by Level 5, as reported by Famitsu the game will run at about 50 to 60 hours to complete. Whether that is just the main story or takes into account side quests remains to be seen.

Enough talk though. I think this game is going to deliver for RPG fans in a major way when it releases in late 2008.

Don’t believe me? Check out some of the videos below for gameplay, a trailer and an interview with the creators themselves. This game is going to deliver for starved Sony RPG fans.

sorry.... but that looks awful

Japanese RPGs about young boys and their pre-pubescent angst/dreams to save the world make me want to vomit.

honestly, how many japanese RPG clichés can they fit into one freaking game?
Giant, retarded looking pack animals - Check
Some sort of bunny-infused human/children - Check
A love interest who looks like shes maybe 13 - Check
then, for the grand finale, they use that gut-wrenching shot of the hero in an epic pose, with the monster in the background, stunned at how bad he just got haxxed, and then slowly falling over... god somebody kill me.

This game looks terrible and I hope it fails... hard.

That was pretty funny. You know a bit more about the topic than you admit to though. Seems like your a japaneese RPG fan, lol.

Kind of off topic don't you think? I disagree, FFXIII above and beyond.

QFT! The funny thing is though is if they were to swap the graphics and names so it fit with Final Fantasy it would get a 9/10. As it is now, maybe a 6-6.5/10.

And does the whole turning into a giant metal thing to combat some freakishly huge monster thing remind anybody of anything?

(Hint: Replace the cliche magic bursts that are replacing the blood with sparks)

thats what i'm talking about man, the epic fall lol, I don't even know how many times i've seen that used, and I thought it was corny as hell the first time i saw it.

Edit: I did like the first season of Power Rangers though, but I was like 4 then.
