If you are a regular visitor of Gamersyde you know how we like to do a lot of videos of good jRPGs when we get one, so it should come to no surprise that four new videos of White Knight Chronicles are coming. These new ones, still by DjMizuhara of course, show some more advanced levels.
Update: Fourth video is up.

awesome job guys(downloading them now). i really do hope that the people who don't like the game would just ignore these videos and not leave any asinine comments.

wow, it keeps giving the impression that we're looking at the long lost brother of Infinite Undiscovery.

Maybe tri-ace's B-Team and Level-5 shoud join forces or something.

Looks great. The visuals look nice, no super high res textures but a good bit of detail. It runs well and doesn't seem to have any frame dips. That said there is some tearing but not nearly like it was in the city video.

The areas are a bit too roomy but this is likely due to the large enemies they must accommodate, not to mention your large White Knight suit-thingy. The combat looks like FFXII and FFXI had a baby, and I like it. There is perhaps a bit too much on screen info, a bit cluttered but its not too overwhelming.

I think I will enjoy the game. Cannot wait to try it out myself.

In all honesty, that is probably the worst combat system i have ever seen in a JRPG, looks boring as hell. The graphics/music is pretty avg too, definately not one to get excited about from the looks of things.

But who knows, I could be wrong...

I'm still shocked that only 3 days after release this became the best selling JRPG so far this generation, certainly wasn't expecting that.

It is a Level 5 RPG in a RPG hungry crowd in Japan, if that did not sell well, what would ?

Only FF has any chance to surpass it there, and these sales mean nothing for US/European sales too

I don’t really like low HP games. It’s kind of ridiculously that you summon a huge knight and then he does like 100 damage. I’m more fan of games where you count damage in thousands, gives battles a more epic scale and you the feeling of being mighty.
What else I could say? – Well it looks slow paced and the combat it’s still awkward. I mean most of the time is spend with running around waiting for the actual attack to be ready. It’s not as fluently as it was shown in the first gameplay trailer on the E3 but I already abandoned the dream that the combat could reach this quality long ago.
However I like that the equipped armor and weapon seem to have an effect the look of the characters. The Japanese synchronization seems to be alright too, I hope we will be able to choose between English and Japanese voices.

What I don't understand is that the player has clearly customized his combo bars with combo attacks but he never uses them, sometimes he could finish a bug with just one or two of these, instead he runs around and performes the same bland attack over and over again which makes the game look boring as hell.

the city vid looks Very nice visually, certainly more impressive than TLR and UI also

Not really, it looks last gen and the town really barren, at least both LR and IU use some shaders and have far more detail around

Haha just hold it. You played FFX? I remember starting with Tidus with like 200 hp and at the end of the game I had more than 20.000. So I'm guessing this is just the beginning of the game.

But I know what you mean, as in Xenogears 3 the Mech's do have a lot more HP, but also do a lot more damage to make it all more equal, but still make it look like they're super bad-ass strong.

they look blocky with some rather poor art...shaders make little difference...I prefer the lighting in this town as well. Far more detail? Can't say I agree with that at all...

I very rarely say say this of current gen games, but parts of UI definitely look last gen to me...especially in terms of the treatment of geometry, very blocky

hardly, unless your last-gen was unbelievably better than anyone else's.
as good as the best so far? probably not. but "its last-gen" is usually a cop-out for ppl who lack a better arguement. the town is pretty empty, but then again, at least got some size to it, versus the tiny 1 intersection "cities" of IU. its not that hard to not be barren when you barely have area to populate.

I can see why this game has become the best selling ROG in Japan. BIG Summons fighting along humans. It's Godzilla all over again.

Star Ocean is gonna make a Hit at those number. At least its gonna try.

But what did people expect from a console that has roughly 3/4X the user-base of the likes of 360 in Japan.
Didn't BDragon sold 100K for such a tiny userbase? Why wouldn
't this be the same case but higher cause it's a system sold to much more people that can buy their trully first exclusive RPG on the system.
If you look at it, is solid number for software, but nothing ground shattering because its almos as equal as the first RPGs sold on the 360 compared to its userbase, and with less impact on Hardware sales.
More is more... but doesn't mean the expectation weren't a bit higher.

if i wacth you play the best game ever for hours i 'll be bored to death too.

It depends on the game. In how much Eye candy a title provides everytime, and how it gives more "satisfaction" trough the visual part, than gameplay part.

You could say that to see/play Metal gear Solid 4, is in fact, the one and same thing.
Jaffe is dead right when He says that Gears of War 2 is his GameOTY, where MGS4 is for him the ExperienceOTY. Fits right In.

this is not on 360 so others are going to diss it... balance is to see both (or more) sides of any issue...right?

Just to let everyone know I watched the same feed as labwarrior and noticed labwarrior trolling the game and the PS3 for most of the stream.

Here's a couple labwarrior quotes from the chat going on during the stream:

"'Fable II is 10000 times better than this crappy game"
"Same enemies, same boring areas for a 100 hour game"

and that is just the tip of the iceberg.

The guy really seems to have a problem with WKC even though he hasn't played it.

Yes i have a problem when the main game i bough a PS3 for reminds me nothing of a JRPG or single player RPG, has no real detail around, seems totally generic to play and look at, is repeatitive and look so mediocre visually

You think i would buy a PS3 if i knew it would turn out like that ? Well, i do not regret because other better real RPG's will come eventually, but i am angry at how that game turned out, did anyone ask them to make a generic game just to have a MMO there ? They should have just focused on a great SP world and experience, which they didn't

If you had seen the Live feed, it is one of the most tedious, boring and uninspiring experiences i could have ever imagined a game could be, the 29/40 in Famitsu is a gift imo, just because Famitsu always gives great scores to JRPG's

BTW you think i would really sit for days and watch the Live stream, if i was not interested in the game ? Think again, i just wanted to see if it would get any better, but in fact got worst and more generic and repeatitive the more that guy played

You definatly can't blame me that Level 5 tried to make a MMO than a JRPG
