The Witch and the Hundred Knights
« on: June 17, 2013, 06:06:17 AM »
Hey, remember this game?  Much delayed, but it's finally going to be hitting Japan in July.  NISA said they would localize it, but I'm not sure about the timeframe there.  Anyway, they've finally posted an actual gameplay trailer!  Looks vaguely Ys-ish, but done in that distinctive NIS style.  Could be fun.

NISA just revealed the limited edition available March 25, 2014.

I missed the $20 error, so I'm still undecided on this one.  Has NIS ever done a real time RPG before?

I don't think so, and it shows.... wasn't the game in development for, like, years???

Uh... I'll probably gravitate towards Diablo 3

Anyone grabbed this yet? I'm curious about impressions.
I avoid online multiplayer because my brain still works.

AFAIK it comes out on Tuesday when I'll be picking it up. Pretty much my gamble purchase of the year.

This is the one I forgot I pre-ordered. After seeing the reviews, I'm pretty worried I wasted my money.

It almost makes me sad, I feel like this game has been in development for a while...and going on review, it wasn't worth the effort.

yeah this game was in development for a long time.  I preorderd the LE, I'm aware it doesn't have the best rep but I'll see for myself whenever it comes in the mail for me

On the one hand it's just $$$, you can make more...on the other you could have bought FFX/X-2 HD instead...

It pains me to say this, but half the NIS games are decent at best regardless of development time. Sometimes I think they rely too much on overused cliches, and then other times I dislike their fetish for super level grinding.

Mine just randomly arrived in the mail today.  I wasn't expecting it, because I received no "your package has shipped" notification from NISA's store.  So if anyone else ordered from there, you might unexpectedly be getting it soon.  Unfortunately, I won't have time to really play it for a while.  (Not that anyone probably trusts my opinion over a professional reviewer's!)

I much prefer regular folks' opinions over professional reviews. Nothing against professional reviews, I just think it's important to remember the kinds of constraints professionals have to play a game under for a review.

I got an email from NISA that they billed me.  I'll post some impressions when I can.
