imageDear Game Star,

Everyone here appreciates how your online store leaks out information like release dates and information on product pages before companies can announce it themselves.


The White Knight Chronicles 2 release date, which you say is July 8, is even more amusing since this was supposed to be an exclusive Famitsu reveal and you beat the magazine to it! Thanks (again and at least a dozen times in the future) for sharing details like this.

    So, they are like the North American amazon.com branch, then? With leaked dates and whatnot, I mean.

  • I think Spencer is moving some money below our noses

  • That’s great and all, but I’m astonished Level-5 is going forward with this; nobody I know really liked White Knight Chronicles. I’m going to snag it when I can, mind you, as I’m sure it doesn’t deserve the nigh-universal critical panning it received, but still.

      I hear far less bashing on this game than I do with FF13. Out of a ton of people I think a whole two people I’ve heard have really loved FF13.

      I’ve heard more than two people at Siliconera alone state they enjoyed White Knight Chronicles. I’m still waiting on the price drop for White Knight Chronicles.

      • That’s true, but White Knight Chronicles was BRUTALIZED critically, whereas Final Fantasy XIII just received scores that likely did not meet the expectations of the company or franchise yet are otherwise quite good overall. Believe me, I plan to try WKC–I’m a fan of the genre, so I’m much more forgiving of its trappings and eccentricities.

        It’s just, eh, if I were Level-5 and saw its reception, I’d be pretty concerned, is all. A trilogy (it was projected as one, right?) is a pretty hefty investment.

          While the game definitely has its problems, WKC isn’t necessarily as bad as critics are saying. At first, I was pretty critical of this game. I was expecting it to be more. But, it became slightly more enjoyable as I continued to play.
          The first one really felt more like a prologue. If you play straight through without doing any sidequests or dabbling in the online mode, it should take less than 20 hours to complete the main story.

          The biggest issue for me was the combat system. It was slow paced and dull. Battling as the Knight wasn’t really any more enjoyable. If they manage to fix the combat system in the second game (but judging by recent screenshots, it doesn’t seem like they have), I’m sure it would make the game more enjoyable.
