I played about half-way through White Knight Chronicles before giving it back to my friend so I'm definitely in for both at $16.

My understanding is that the single-player is pretty much a fancy tutorial for multi-player but there's very much a story there which is driven by dialog and cut-scenes and so forth.

From what I played of the first; it isn't Level-5 at their best by any means but at $8 a pop who the hell cares. (assuming that you enjoy that style/pace of combat)

I'm ok with a short rpg. I don't have time for the genre like I did 10 years ago. Always loved the genre but with a CAG size back log, wife and two kids....i just know better. But I'll be picking up WKC:II from best by later this week so feel free to add me. Psn: shadowkastone

Also, i thought the servers were shut down for both games?

Did anyone else notice there's no more 2-day free shipping? I was hoping to get my 1-year free ShopRunner from this game.

Got a copy of WKII, been looking at these for a long time and decided to pull the trigger.

I've been trying to order since about 4 hours ago, and it won't appear. When did you order it?

Trying to exercise restraint and not buy WKC2--I'm already concerned about ever booting up some of the other JRPGs from this gen I have sitting in a pile (mainly Blue Dragon, Magna Carta 2 and Star Ocean 4) and don't need to add to that pile...

Snagged WKCII, thanks OP. Rented the first one and started getting in to it but sent it back due to cancelling game rental service. Getting both for 16 bucks is a no brainer.

Picking up WKCII, was waiting for it to go below $20 (Amazon came so close). Thanks Op!

It's tempting, but I know I'll regret it if the game drops to $10 in a month or two.

I'm tempted, but I have heard WKC is one of the worst RPGs this gen. Everyone says it is abysmal.

Thanks! I have always wanted to play WKC. Picked one up with shoprunner today, so I'm guessing its eligible again. Just in case others wanted to know. :lol:

Ordered WKCII, thanks. Feels like a bargain (makes me glow with an inner cheap ass CAG pride :)) with 2 games for $16 total.

No there's stuff like The Last Remnant, Cross Edge, and most of the non-Disgaea NIS lineup out there.

What I played of the old version of WKC 1 last year was fine except combat was a bit slow and this new version fixes that. It's no Tales of Vesperia, Lost Odyssey, or Valkyria Chronicles, but it's just as good as Eternal Sonata or Blue Dragon.

Also for those looking for FF 13-2 on PS3, GS has it on sale for $20 this week.

I absolutely love Eternal Sonata on the PS3. Had a lot of fun with my wife. It's definitely better than Blue Dragon, Lost Odyssey and Vesperia just for the co-op main campaign alone. I would love to get my hands on any other jRPGs co-op games like Eternal Sonata. Waiting for any ultimate or final release of FFX 13-2 before picking that one up.

I really doubt it'll get any of that with the way the price has fallen on it. I don't think 13 even got one, at least in the US, but I could be wrong.

All of the Tales games have local co-op. With up to 4 people controlling the characters during combat it gets pretty crazy at times but can be really rewarding when your combos and chains work out. Also, I wouldn't expect any "ultimate version" for any square-enix game. Especially in the US.

Mine was canceled as well. I placed another order. Probably will be voided too but figured I'd give it a shot.

Yeah, mine also shipped yesterday afternoon. I was a little concerned because I got my order in late. When did you guys with canceled orders put in your orders?
