Some details about White Knight Story

- Tons and tons of HUGE monsters on an unsurpassed scale
- The field and combat engine is like a normal RPG
- Battles with huge monsters have a very great sense of scale

Someone on 2ch mentioned that it was going for the feel of SotC, except as a RPG.

Level 5 is the best new RPG developer this console generation, and their first next-gen effort is sounding fantastic already. Please keep giving these guys money, Sony.

Level 5 RPG + SOTC. That's one killer combo right there.
Yup. Holy shit, just imagining it... god, these guys are phenomenal.

Graphics would need one hell of an overhaul to get me to buy it...

(and fixing the craptacular camera couldn't hurt)

Wowzers, some huge news in this thread. TGS hasn't even officially begun!

I take it, re. NG, it's a case of "everyone buy 18 copies of this, and NG2 will come to PS3", right? :p

Level 5 RPG? Very nice. How was Dark Cloud 2? I haven't played the game.
Boring! Like the other well-known cel-shaded title this generation. DC(1) was better :p

Bad news guys....... It seems that Kojima Productions is producing this game: http://www.monexbeans.net/pdf/press/mbh/press2006_09_14_konami.pdf


Yeah.... It's some sort of stock market trainer.... wtf.
Yeah, we knew about the game, but I don't think it was known that Kojima Productions was producing. What the ****? :lol

The game is nuts. It's like Segagaga, only stupid.

Dark Cloud better than Dark Cloud 2? Are you high?

:( I'm afraid to say it here but I didn't like DC 1 so didn't even rent 2. I can hear the DC fans coming. Bye cruel world.

Btw what they mean by that:

The field and combat engine is like a normal RPG
What's a normal RPG? Is it gonna be turn based or action RPG?

Truth be told I only played until the first area out of town in Dark Chronicles (train breaks down or something), I couldn't stand it, the game just wasn't fun :( but with Dark Cloud it was one of the first PS2 games I owned and the first I finished so nostalgia is at work.

I agree that it's much harder to get into DC2, but the game is so much better overall.

Is white knight action or turn based? Anyone knows?
Hmm... good question. Let me load the game into my PS3 and check for you.

They're posting all the info they're getting, stop re-asking stupid questions.

Sounds like a worthy re-re-release. And since it's on PS3, how about a NG2 demo included?

Do they say the game looks good in these scans (talking about White Knight Story)?
WTF is GTHD after all? "HD Premium" and "Gran Turismo HD Classic"?

I would like to know as well. What is the difference between the two?

Maybe someone has better translation or knows something more.

I guess you're gonna act like a dick to the people asking the difference between "HD Premium" and "Gran Turismo HD Classic" too? Why so hostile?

Maybe "HD Premium" is a playable demo of GT5. :lol
who cares....as long as BOTH versions of GTHD are online, i would have no beef with Kaz.......unless of course GTHD is STILL not online by the time it comes....then SCEA seriously needs to kick some ass over at Polyphony Digital:lol

It still boggles my mind why Sony goes through with GT HD instead of a new GT. It's a huge waste of time and money imo.

Man, I remember when Itagaki said he was leaning away from making Rachel playable, saying that was a Capcom thing to do.

Two swords is cool, but I really want to see Ryu go at it without weapons. Empty hands, man!
