Ben's Week In Review: May 16

A very busy week right here...we'll try to make sure all angles are covered in terms of reviews. :)

If this is true, we gotta see more of it

When I heard the report that White Knight Chronicles 2 would actually release with an updated version of the original WKC, that got me to thinking: isn't that a damn good idea? Not only will they include the first title with the sequel (which makes perfect sense, as WKC2 is a direct follow-up), but the developers will also overhaul the original so it features the new mechanics and additions in the sequel. ...how sweet is that? Now, I'm well aware that Level 5 is going above and beyond the call of duty, but I really think it would behoove many designers to take this same approach when it comes to certain sequels. It may be a little more difficult to "upgrade" the original so it holds all the enhancements of the sequel - depending on the project - but just the idea of packaging the first game in with a sequel...it's just awesome. Everyone often complains about "bang for your buck," especially in regards to shorter experiences, so wouldn't this be a very nice option?

And if they could manage to overhaul the original adventure so it plays like the sequel, that's even more incentive. It'd be one thing if this were the movie industry and sequels are never as good as the originals, but it's basically the opposite in gaming; many sequels really are better because the technology and refinement gets better. It should definitely be the case for WKC2...

Another example of what developers should do

So they insist the single-player campaign in Dead Space 2 won't suffer due to the new multiplayer mode, and that's primarily because Visceral has two separate teams working on each aspect of the production. This appears to be a running theme with EA, too: for Medal of Honor, EALA will produce the single-player quest and DICE will handle the multiplayer modes. This is exactly the type of thing other designers should do, because we've all noticed examples of the multiplayer emphasis infringing on the quality and longevity of single-player campaigns. I think the recently released Splinter Cell: Conviction is a definite example. It's fine by me if you want to cater to all those who absolutely require a multiplayer experience, but I'm convinced that too many game makers are underestimating how many fans remain who prefer the single-player aspect. They've been doing it for years. But maybe they're starting to come 'round...

Have you noticed that almost every time a developer details a multiplayer mode in a new game, they make a point of saying how it won't hinder the single-player experience? This means they've heard the complaints, at the very least.

Personal gaming update

Unsurprisingly, I'm in a definite jam. I didn't expect to like Nier as much as I did, and now I'm struggling to finish before the big games for this week arrive. Then there's 3D Dot Game Heroes, which again, I honestly didn't think I'd want to play through to completion, but damn...it's Zelda! I'm wondering if I'll be able to review Red Dead Redemption and Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands, stop long enough to finish Nier and 3D Dot Game Heroes, and then go back. However, it's more likely I'll have to keep playing the new gems because I'm convinced they'll be damn good...I hate it when this happens. It drives me nuts to have games in my collection I haven't beaten, and it's annoying when they start to pile up. Probably shouldn't complain, though; a lot of great games is always better than not enough. ;) It's just a matter of time, really.

Not much else to talk about. My car now has two coats of wax on it and is fully detailed and ready for the summer, which is always nice. Cars like that benefit from a definite shine the whole way 'round...

While I think it is totally cool that WKC2 may pack in the first game, updated, they now have the problem of not getting new customers for the first iteration (which was great JRPG fare)

Umm, as you all know from my Dante rants Visceral can do no wrong by me and I loved Dead Space so I actually trust them when they say the SP won't suffer.

I'm stuck in 3DDotGameHeroes, I can't find the old man in the desert temple, help me!?

Oh yeah and I'm upgrading to a 37" TV as we speak (post)

If developers want to hand out two games for the price of one, why don't they just do that off the bat? If it were to become a trend I can easily see people saying "Hey, I'M not buying the first game. YOU buy it so I can get the two pack later."

I would say the sales of WKC has been underwhelming, .58 million total according to VGChartz. Maybe if they pull a stunt like this for the second game, the sales for the second game will be through the roof. Anybody who passed on the first game, but always had a slight itch to get it, well, now, they will jump at the chance for the second game. (that includes me.) This is brilliant, think outside the box sort of marketing move.

I've been playing a lot more of Uncharted 2's online mode recently; I guess a little break from it did me some good. The main event though is FFXIII, which has actually surpassed my expectations after all the negative press. Who knew?
In my non-gaming news, I have been collecting all of Hayao Miyazaki's films and just watched Ponyo on blu-ray, an absolutely stunning film. I recommend it to anyone who watches movies with their families or values animation of the highest calibur.

There are several points for and against FFXIII in general, but when all's said and done, I agree most with Ben's description: RPG Lite. It's a very "Lite" RPG but then, it's the best possible quality Lite you'll ever play. That's how I look at it. If they had chosen a different gameplay direction it would have been just as well-thought-out.
I guess what I mean to say is that they made a perfect system that also just happens to hold your hand and automate most things, which many people hate. I don't like it all that much but I can get over it.
Other things like the lack of NPC's who actually talk to you are pretty large detractors but luckily the visuals are encapsulating enough to make you want to advance.
P.S. I haven't gotten to Gran Pulse yet, so from what I've heard here and there I expect my experience to be greatly enhanced later in the game.

I still haven't play WKC and if WKC is really being included in WKC2, WKC will be off my list for good.

Because it ain't FF and I'm not a huge fan of Level 5, I can wait a year or so for WKC2.(that is, if WKC2 does comes with WKC)

i have been playing mag all week. i am up to level 50 almost. i am getting sick of the idiots on there that want to kick you for no other reason than for them to be squad leader so they can have the points. most of the time they dont even have a mic on and say anything they just try to kick you.

my cousin got his psn account back this week. someone had stolen his account and changed it on him. he contacted sony and they looked into it. the person that had stolen his account charged a bunch of stuff to his credit card. sony called him back and said they had pretty much assumed something was up in the begining because so many things were bought in a short amount of time. they restored everything for him.

I'm currently playing Record of agarest war like mad. I have finally gotten a ff tactics style of game to play. I love fftactics but I've beaten it so many times I just needed the same style with a new story. They do have some very key differences but I'm loving this one too.

Next week tho I'll be getting red dead, followed by modnation the next week. After that I won't be buying any games for several months most likely, but then again, I won't need to.

I've been playing GTA4 and the Episodes in anticipation for Red Dead. R* seems to have taken a similar move as L5: GTA4 gets upgraded with content from Liberty City Episodes. I've been thinking of just selling my EFLC disc and getting the DLC versions just so I can combine the soundtracks. TLAD is a forgettable experience, but BOGT was nicer with spruced up visuals, better story, and action. I've already beat it, but I'm sure it'll be worth a second playthrough at some point.

ND added multiplayer to UC2 WITHOUT degrading the single player and instead, the single player experience was tons better than UC1.

PS3 exclusives simply doesn't need to sacrifice anything for the sake of adding another because of Blu Ray.

Dead Space 2 is easily my most anticipated game. What they're doing with the two teams to work on single player and multiplayer is great, but still the fact remains: the game has a budget. If the entire budget is put into the single player, it will be better than if some is siphoned off for multiplayer. I'm just so sick of this idea that EVERY game has to have multiplayer.

The whole concept of added value via multiplayer is something developers are really missing the boat on. How about some first-class DLC that adds new weapons and new levels / environments? Something that would make people really want to play the game again to experience the new stuff? Last time they just gave us weapons skins and different colored suits.

Personally I'm getting real close to finishing Red Faction Guerrilla. Love that game. The variety of strategies you can use in attacking your targets is the best part about it. It usually requires a mix of several different strategies to successfully complete a mission - so you actually have to work out how to approach a situation. Speaking of DLC, I'm definitely going to be buying the "Demons of the Badlands" DLC for this, as it's a short prequel to the full game.

Yeah but let's not forget that might be a PS3 only advantage (including the first game with the sequel) I don't see 2 games fitting on one Xbox DVD... And I don't see them wasting more money on adding one dvd... So only Sony exclusives might benefit from that because I don't think MS is going to let multi-plat titles include 2 games for Ps3 and only one on Xbox for the same price lol... T-T

Im with alienange on this one.

If a game has co-op split screen its good for one thing! If your buddy dont have the game! thats pretty much it. Otherwise id rather have my whole screen anyday and chat it up with em over the psn!

now a game like modnation racers would be fun split screen but again you lose a lot of angles and the frame in which you play. LBP and 2d scrollers can make good use of same console co-op though but thats not split screen so...

Im all for devs putting it in a game for people, but i prefer to play co-op with a friend on the other end of a mic, no split screen for me anymore.

@ Ben,

This sucks. It's like a double edged sword. I guess it's good that they decide to include an "updated" version of WKC 1 in WKC 2 but that just basically means Level 5 acknowledge that WKC 1 was a faulty product and they have to go back and refine and tweak WKC 1 in order to make it a legit product.

Not only that, but the consumers who bought WKC 1 are basically screwed over because it proves they bought a faulty product and got screwed out of $60. The consumer could have easily waited and saved $60 by buying the packaged WKC 1 and WKC 2. The consumer will also be getting a better version of WKC 1. What a joke this is.

Yeah, the gamer is getting a better value by buying the packaged WKC's...but the gamer who bought the original WKC 1 got screwed over.

For those on this site that have played the game, I hear rave reviews. I believe Limited has put in upwards of 100 hours into that game questing. Before this news of a possible two game disc, I doubt those that have the game and put some serious time into it feel they have gotten cheated in some way.

I don't feel cheated in any way and it isn't a faulty product in any way. If they pack in an updated version with WKC2, I'll be playing the new version of part 1 all over again just to see the tweaks.

That's not how you should look at it. Most all sequels are better than the original these days; it doesn't mean the consumer bought a "faulty product;" all it does is give NEW consumers added incentive to dive in.

The people who played the first don't have to play the updated version, but they do have the option. I really don't see the downside.

or it screws the current stores that have WKC 1. No one's buying those until 2 comes out :)

There probably aren't many stores with (new) copies of WKC anyway, since it probably had a limited "print run" and is now no longer in production. There will be even fewer by the time WKC2 appears.
