Yeah New Egg has had it on 2 seperate occasions for $28 but they can't keep in stock at that price so here's one that's more stable at $30. Also you could PM this at Best Buy or maybe Walmart if they still have the game, or if you're needing something to spend GS credit on. For those that don't know, you get both WKC games on the disc.

Can you elaborate on that please? It makes no sense to me...

Repetition in a game is NOT a bad thing, almost all games are repetitive. What matters is if YOU enjoy the game, then the repetition becomes enjoyable and doesn't feel monotonous or boring.

yeah, im chilln and it sounds weird too, lol.
wkc1 and wkc2 have seperate trophy lists. you cant get any trophies for wkc1 trophy list in wkc2.
wkc2 contains both games but you will only earn trophies for wkc2 trophy list even if you choose to play wkc1 on the wkc2 disk.... is that better? sorry bro

So basically it's this.

-WKC has it's own trophy list
-WKC2 has it's own trophy list
-WKC2 has WKC on its disc
-If you play WKC from the WKC2 disc you won't get trophies for WKC, but if you meet an objective for a WKC2 trophy you'll get that one.

Is that accurate? Also, let's say you never played WKC before, does WKC2 add the WKC trophy list to your history even though you'll never unlock trophies for that list?

I'm sure its only the WKC2 trophy list, and you can only get the WKC2 trophies from 2 (Seeing how much they revamped it compared to the first)

Pretty weird how they would add trophies to it but you can't earn them.

Dunno, its not like its out of their ability to have multiple trophy sets on one disc. Maybe they had to rush it out or something.

Either way, the trophies for WKC1 take FOREVER (The only person i knew who plat'd it took about 800 hours). Doubt many of the trophies would be easily attainable now that 2 is out and there arent many reasons to still play 1 aside for the story.

nope, doesn't add wkc trophy list at all. wkc is optional in part 2, but they revamped it with the 'better' battle system wkc2 uses, so if you never played it, ya know. and there are some easy trophies like have x amount of currency, and if you play wkc2's version of wkc1 or go straight into wkc2 you will earn that trophy for the wkc2 list. yeps

and yeah it's like a minimum of 500 hours plat. i havent done it at all

I would recommend the series and a good price for it.

I have platinum'd both games (WKC1 took me 370 hours and WKC2 took me 320 hours). The battle system is very much improved from the previous one which makes battles flow a lot better. If you are going for the story it is pretty average, but I enjoyed it as it does have some good plot twists. Online is active for the most part and with guilds added and D3 bringing out new quests from time to time it gives good reason to play once in awhile even with the platinum done.

If you are going for the trophies though I will say be ready for a grind. Lots of gear and items to make and it will taste your patience with item drops, but nothing I found to bad. I will say though both platinums are probably my most satisfying ones.

This might be worth a price match to Best Buy... Especially since you get exclusive DLC I think.

I had rented a copy of the original to see if I would like it or not; will that save file work or do I have to start from scratch?

The only way to import WKC1 data to WKC2 is to have cleared data from it (Went and checked this morning). If anything the new battle system will let you get to that same spot pretty quick.

Thanks, been wanting to get this for $30. Traded in Zelda 2 days ago for $32 just sittin' there.

Bought the first clearanced at Target for about $14.98 or whatever. Played an hour, traded it in for about $12 after I heard it would be included on the 2nd game disc. Glad to hear it sounds like the battle system really was improved. I have no use for trophies or online but $30 for 2 games still seems worth it for me.

It was still at the store I was at this morning. Though I know a lot of times WM's prices can be a big YMMV. In this case it was tagged at $30. No sale tags or anything like that, so I'm sure its safe to say this is everywhere. Also being that GS and WM have it for $30 it could be the new MSRP.

But BB and Amazon still have it at full price and GS just lists it as a sale on their website and not a price drop. Any who this may be the time to buy as I can't find it at BB anymore, never found it at WM, and Target/TRU/KMart didn't carry it.

And thanks RPGHope18 for answering my question [come say hi to us in the STL thread in the regional forum! :) ] That means I've lost 5 hours of progress but not a huge deal I guess.

I have posted in there before. Heck, I'm on the previous page of posts. :rofl:

But yea, I know just about everything about this game with both platinums under my belt, so if people have questions you can ask. 5 hours will be easy to get back where you were.

For any of you planning on picking the game up used, be aware this is one of Sony online pass games(the first WKC was not) The online code costs 10.00 on PSN if it has been redeemed from the package. The game prompts you pretty early in the story mode to try out Geonet and redeem the code, so chances that a used copy will have an unredeemed code are pretty slim.

Only 370!
I have about 500 into WKC1 and just hit GR12 so still need the final binding and gold trophies.
How'd you do it so quick.

I had people I met online that would help with quests since they were trying to get items and get ready for WKC2. I ran a lot of Big Red and did most of my stuff in only GR11 gear (was spear). Binding was probably the most difficult in WKC1.

I used a binding guide on GameFAQS and just saved up mats and crossed them off as I got what I needed. My trick to making WKC2 easier was I had saved all my bindings until the end of WKC1 then made a seperate save. So when I started WKC2, I had all my materials back so I didn't have to grind out all the items again for the next binding trophy.

I have a full group of guys I was playing WKC1 with every week or so, so we always ran quests together, only time I played solo was single player and some early Big Red then I was hooked on soloing Lost Children 3. We really didn't do Big Red much though (focused more on fun than trying to hurriedly gain GR points). Guess that's why. :lol:

Geez so wkc2 just throws you right onto the mix doesn't it? I am so fucking lost! Guess I should Go back play wkc1 again and get a refresher. (I didn't get very far the first time I played it since I hated the combat)
