Tell you what, why don’t you just release it in stores so we can BUY it! Seriously, you guys can never have too much money and we ALL want one.

By the way, picked up my copy yesterday. I just need to finish Valkyria Chronicles first- can’t have too many games going on at once you know. (Chrono Cross, Valkyria Chronicles, Disgaea 3(Epilogue), Eternal Sonata, just FYI.)


+ ijustw1n on February 9th, 2010 at 10:42 am said:

U.S. has most clarified, defended contest rules.


+ Jeigh on February 9th, 2010 at 10:42 am said:

@ xBlackBloodx (1)

You can be the “first” poster all you want here and it really won’t matter- the only “first” that really ever mattered is printed in bold on the T-Shirt the Blog sent me at the end of the first year.

+ G-Force08 on February 9th, 2010 at 10:45 am said:

I could easily answer all those questions, but I really do not care to win a shirt like that :/

But cool game nonetheless. :D

I play just about every day. Keep the contests coming SCEA ^^


+ TRIX_BOL on February 9th, 2010 at 10:48 am said:

This is kind of an odd question, but what sizes are being offered?
And is that you (Cristian) wearing the shirt?

(You guys better know.)


+ jqtaxpayer on February 9th, 2010 at 11:00 am said:

So I can win a t-shirt with the purchase of a $60 game? Here’s something that will blow some minds… how about winning a $60 game with the purchase of a t-shirt?

Especially with how poorly the game is reviewing, you might want a better incentive than this paltry offering.

    + Cristian Cardona on February 9th, 2010 at 12:54 pm said:

    Uh…no. You can win by answering the questions correctly. No need to purchase the game.


+ LokeSTL on February 9th, 2010 at 11:05 am said:

Awesome contest, I wear an XL by the way! Need that shirt!!!

“One entry per person and e-mail address each day of the sweepstakes.”

Seriously, do you guys think that it’ll take more than the first day to get 10 winners? I bet those shirts were all spoken for in the first 10 minutes of this post.

Sent mine, I hope I get one

Aw man this was posted hours ago.
10 people had to have answered all questions correctly by now.
I hope I made it.


+ Omni937 on February 9th, 2010 at 11:37 am said:

Penny Arcade is funny.
They can’t crap gold everyday, but it is a good comic.

Ty a lot the game is really sweet, i only wish for a small patch to fix random freezes :(

Ty again for the news :)


+ EventStatus on February 9th, 2010 at 11:57 am said:

Damn, missed this hours ago, because I was too busy PLAYING WKC! Those questions are really easy too, damn. Too bad, that’s a pretty badass shirt.


+ Zarxce on February 9th, 2010 at 12:02 pm said:

I just beat the game yesterday. The single player story was disappointingly short…but it’s still an amazing game. I still plan on spending many hours doing the online quests.

Tell Level 5 to hurry up with WKC2 so I can see what happens next already!


+ RuthlessEd on February 9th, 2010 at 12:05 pm said:

Such a sad, disappointing, last generation game.

I expected WAY more.

These PS2 developers just can’t seem to make the jump to the new platforms.


+ Kchow23 on February 9th, 2010 at 12:12 pm said:

Aw.. US only :\


+ dragonmagician on February 9th, 2010 at 12:30 pm said:

I know all of the answers, and I want that shirt…but it is US only. :(


+ SOOPERGOOMAN187 on February 9th, 2010 at 12:32 pm said:

I was gonna buy this game but since your contest is AMERICA ONLY. I am gonna pass on Buying your game.

Support those who support You as I always say…..


+ Zezzler on February 9th, 2010 at 12:37 pm said:

Is there only that design on it? its cool and all, i just would have liked to see an ‘orthographic’ drawing kinda picture of it, if you get what i mean.

Canada pl0x?

    + Cristian Cardona on February 9th, 2010 at 12:52 pm said:

    Yep, it\’s only that design on the front. It has the game logo on the upper back as well.


+ Edd on February 9th, 2010 at 12:44 pm said:

The game is awesome, people that are bagging on it probably never even played it. Most of the reviews are poorly written and hardly even mention the online features of the game.


+ gamerboy845 on February 9th, 2010 at 1:03 pm said:

i love this game make sure level 5 breings the next one over here 2 =)

i think its a 9+, i dont know what ign was smoking, maby they dident play it. it just did not make sense…….you should find out…..


+ gamerboy845 on February 9th, 2010 at 1:12 pm said:

one more thing….whats with that one realy realy good looking cutsine in the middle, will the next game have more of those.

+ dragonmagician on February 9th, 2010 at 1:13 pm said:

I want to know why the Official Brady Guide is so bad? I spent $25 thinking it would help me in the game, but there is a lot of missing and incorrect information in it.

How hard can it be to make a guide with full and correct information, just work with the people who developed the game.

To end with a positive note, the game itself is great.


+ stennex on February 9th, 2010 at 1:41 pm said:

Is there any know patches coming or this wonderful game. It takes too long save and it has been freezing. Thank you.


+ djnealb on February 9th, 2010 at 1:54 pm said:

I hope I’m not too late. I was trying to do this while also fielding calls at work, so that delayed me in getting some of the answers.


+ Edd on February 9th, 2010 at 1:55 pm said:

@ stennex Freezing? I have experienced no performance issues whatsoever (besides some slight screen tearing). It does take longer than most games to save though.


+ letherclad on February 9th, 2010 at 2:05 pm said:

I want one of those really bad, I love the white knight symbol

Also if you consider size of the save game file (5MB!) it will probably explain the long save time its pretty friggin big for a save game file, also I’ve had no freezing problems and I have a ton of time logged in.

Friend me for some coop play!


+ Protohype on February 9th, 2010 at 2:13 pm said:

Cool Sweepstakes. I sent mines in and hope I’m not too late.

Anyways, WKC is amazing. I’m literally tied between the Sp and Online aspects of the game. They’ve managed to implement a system where I feel switching off as progression advances will not interrupt how to play. The preconceived notion of “complete Sp” first goes out the window (IMO).


+ Ultra_Keyblade on February 9th, 2010 at 2:54 pm said:

US only yay! lmao.
Well, this is the US PlayStation blog.


+ TwinDad on February 9th, 2010 at 3:24 pm said:

Sweet. I’m still sporting that “Kitty Got Wet” shirt that you guys gave out at PAX09.


+ ndw4 on February 9th, 2010 at 3:33 pm said:

Umm.. White Knight Chronicles kinda sucks.


+ MakaiOokami on February 9th, 2010 at 3:35 pm said:

I’m sure I didn’t win. Well… That’s what I get for playing the game online till 4:00 a.m. and then waking up at noon and playing it again. No way for me to probably win that contest lol.


+ DJAzzurro on February 9th, 2010 at 4:23 pm said:

It does? I thought that was you.
…Oh wait, it is you.


+ poisonedsodapop on February 9th, 2010 at 5:14 pm said:

While I totally missed the chance for this I gotta give WKC some love. This game is so addictive. I’ve yet to beat it cause I’ve been jumping back and forth between online and story. I’m pretty close though I think.


+ Enigma777 on February 9th, 2010 at 6:10 pm said:

WKC is so damn good! It’s what FFXII should have been…

The only thing that bugs me is how you’re charging for all those Georama items… $1.50 for a freaking lamp? What is this, Home?!


+ Elite_Pyro on February 9th, 2010 at 6:35 pm said:

Screw the reviews! Aside from the saving time…I LOVE THIS GAME :D Thank you very much Level 5, you just found yourself a new loyal fan!


+ Quintonious on February 9th, 2010 at 7:28 pm said:

Woo, always like free t-shirts, especially for awesome games like WKC!

A little confused though: is a shirt given to 10 winners each DAY of the contest (9th thru the 16th), or are there only 10 shirts total, which are given to the first 10 correct entries received, regardless of the day they were sent in? Confusion comes from the “one entry per e-mail PER DAY” part of the rules…



+ MGO_Count on February 9th, 2010 at 7:32 pm said:

Can you buy this shirt?


+ Drowned_Fish on February 9th, 2010 at 10:54 pm said:

@47, I have the same sentiments. I just learned of the contest recently, as in five minutes ago, and if it’s the latter situation, I sure as hell didn’t win.


+ lonewolf1994 on February 10th, 2010 at 6:07 am said:

nice shirt, but you wont be catching me dead wearing that going down the street thats for sure…
