White Knight Chronicles II Preview

Jason checks out the next installment of Level-5's White Knight Chronicles series.

This year, we're doing something a bit different. In order to bring you coverage as fast as possible, we'll be posting audio recordings of notes from staff members at E3 and later adding in a written version of the impressions. Please click through and check out this staff member's recorded thoughts on the game from the E3 show floor.

Notes

- The original game is included on the disc and it has been remastered - now includes online play with up to 6 players, crafting system upgrade.

- takes place a year after the first

- Magi have risen to create their own empire. Invading other countries to power grab

- stars Leonard and friends. Use sky ship to investigate the magi

- create your own character, import your character from the last game. Not certain if you can import your chracter from the non packed in version of the game

- arc knights, new in this game - can become an arc knight

- players can choose different armor types. Jason saw a knight that wielded a hammer in battle

- customization system in place to create your own arc knight

- real time ATB fighting - something similar to an MMO mixed with Final Fantasy ATB. Positioning matters to the experience.

- Some of the attacks break turns

- 50 or 60 hours long if you perform sidequests. A bit shorter otherwise

- very easy to run away in the game. Party members behave differently when you run.

- enemies can strike through each other

- special abilities called charge attack. Like magic attack, costs MP. Mash a given button for a more powerful attack.

- Yshrenian (evil) empire is back, Scardigne is in the game with some crazy evil looking armor. Lady Miu is mostly green, with green hair and a bow and arrow.

- different attacks, blunt, slash, thrust. Rocks Paper Scissors system to turn break

- saw boss, giant gargoyle. appeared to be a first boss

- game is difficult

- game is seamless between online and offline when it comes to trading items. Solves the problem of people of different skill levels playing together.

Duck Hunt Review Rewind

Duck Hunt is an interesting relic of times past and one that I have conflicting feelings about.  While it was my earliest NES memory and no doubt fun from what I can remember, it also hasn't aged quite as well as I would have hoped.  But sometimes, that's just how it goes with the games we played as children.  I suppose the biggest letdown is realizing that the game simply isn't as stimulating to me as it once was, mostly due to its limited nature.  At its core, you're just shooting the same objects round after round until you fail to reach the required quota.  Be that as it may, Duck Hunt's importance in Nintendo's history cannot be overlooked.
