Press release :
CERGY-PONTOISE, FRANCE, FRANCE – 25 February 2011 – NAMCO BANDAI Games Europe S.A.S today announced that Knights Contract™ is now available for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system. Recreating medieval Europe, this stylized action-adventure game explores the dark lore of swordsmen and magic during the 17th century. With razor-sharp combat and an intriguing storyline, players will be at the edge of their seats as they follow the path of an unlikely duo that embark on a daunting mission to save the human race.
In Knights Contract, take a journey through a world where witches have been hunted and brutally executed for allegedly unleashing a plague onto humanity. The game follows the twisted tale of Heinrich, an immortal executioner, and Gretchen, a resurrected witch. Once the victim of Heinrich’s blade, Gretchen now has him under contract to fight alongside her and the two must work together to rid the land of the vengeful enemies who are out to destroy civilization. But beyond these malicious foes lies an even bigger threat that is responsible for the black spell of death.
Armed with Heinrich’s finely honed scythes and Gretchen’s explosive witchcraft, players must utilize these tools in battle as they travel through malevolent environments that are invested with evil. Coordinating the efforts of Heinrich and Gretchen will be critical in order to deal tremendous damage onto their tormentors with fluid, fast-paced combinations and gruesome finishers. As the immortal executioner, players must protect Gretchen against hideous creatures and unspeakable horror as her magical prowess and mortality are the key to the duo’s survival.
I didn't understand why he played so poorly either though. Subasic has been amazing the rest of the tourney. A big reason they won against Denmark and Russia (20 Hours ago)
@MrWhite: I agree. Penalty like that shouldn't happen in a WC final. Croatia's keeper was screened for almost all of those goals, aside from the deflection (20 Hours ago)
@Melmoth: oh god, that is amazing. the sounds and visuals are insane for a sim. (21 Hours ago)
@droezelke: For both them? Mbapp was 20 odd yards out. His positioning was shite. Should never have let that one past him. (21 Hours ago)
If FIFA didn't object so long to get a VAR, the concept could have been bug-fixed 10 years ago. (22 Hours ago)
@Tinks: The VAR is an exvellent tool, but the rules applied to the VAR are restricting them from intervening. Also, the hands-rule is so ill defined that it's completely open to interpretation. (22 Hours ago)
Then the shot came and as he tried to correct to the right, he was leaning on the wrong leg and went out of balance. (22 Hours ago)
