Hey, fellas, you like the dames, right?
Well, I dug up some pretty awesome concept art for Knights Contract, and as near as I can tell, these creatures are all female. So, without further ado, I give you Holda, Rapunzel, and ...

Knights Contract (Playstation 3, Xbox 360)Developer: Games RepublicPublisher: Namco Bandai Games To Be Released: February 22, 2011
In Knights Contract, you play primarily as Heinrich, an immortal executioner who runs around with a giant glowing axe-scythe. You are accompanied by Gretchen, who is a resurrected witch. Coincidentally, Heinrich was the one who executed Gretchen, and that’s why he’s cursed with immortality. The whole execution was Dr. Faust’s idea in the first place, and Gretchen wants revenge on him, and since Heinrich’s trying to get Gretchen’s curse lifted, he’s playing bodyguard. Boom. Medieval buddy-system revenge action.At first glance, this looked like a less X-rated version of Dante’s Inferno, since you mostly go around hitting monsters with a scythe, but after getting the chance to play it a bit myself, there’s a lot more going on. See, since Heinrich is immortal, so he can’t really die, he just gets tired out. Gretchen, however, is more prone to death, and it’s Heinrich’s job to protect her.
It’s a little like the Rocko’s Modern Life game for SNES, except if Rocko was a musclebound executioner carrying a massive glowing halberd and Spunky was a total babe who could do magic.When you control Heinrich, you can smash guys up real good with your giant scythe, and doing that has a nice beat-em up feel to it. But, if you get overwhelmed by bad guys, you can switch over to Gretchen and really mess ‘em up with some witchcraft. If Heinrich gets tired out, you can tap a button, and he’ll pick up Gretchen and her magic will rejuvenate him.I tend to be sort of a button-masher, so most of my time playing was spent swinging Heinrich’s scythe at flaming lava zombies (probably not what they’re actually called, excuse me) which was plenty of fun, except then Gretchen and I caught fire. There’s a lock-on feature, which is helpful, because it shows how much life each enemy has left.Gretchen’s magic includes twelve different spells, six of which are upgradeable. There are also items to collect. I didn’t run across any items, but I did play with some of the spells. One of them causes Heinrich to turn into what I can only describe as a blue, glowing, demonic Incredible Hulk. Others include various types of energy blasts.
In addition to Gretchen, there are six other witches. I’m not sure if they’re bosses or not, but that would make sense. While watching other people playing, I saw a couple of cutscenes, which may or may not have involved a witch-like lady consuming a small child in an alleyway, which (witch?) was awesome. When I played the game myself, I fought a boss, and it was a big gross monster. That's how bosses should be, so I'm happy.From a stylistic standpoint, Knights Contract has a look similar to Bayonetta or Devil May Cry, but in a medieval fantasy setting. I’m not personally a huge fan of the aesthetic, but I’m fully aware how badass it is. It's sort of how I imagine a video game would be if Heironymus Bosch collaborated with the guys who designed Battle Arena Toshinden.Knights Contract be out on February 22nd for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, and it’s going for $59.99.
In this age of sequels and spinoffs and remakes, it's always interesting when a new franchise rears its unique and original head. In this case, I'm talking about Knights Contract, the latest offering from Game Republic and Na...

*walls start crumbling, reality starts oozing out, things begin to eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeAmna Umen Alright so I'm looking for a few games for my newly repurchased DS. I'm already set on RPG as it's all I have pretty much. Were there any good puzzle games? I've heard good things about Professor Layton.FlanxLycanth I made chocolate and banana cake because why not.able to think After hearing Persona 4 Dancing All Night come out of my surround sound system; I can safely say my $20 Playstation TV purchase was totally justified. The bass on Best Friends (Banvox Remox) literally shook the floor. It's freaking awesome!LinkSlayer64 I wish I could say I made this 'shop.

Alfie Was on the front page and was greeted by a new post, which I clicked to find "You cannot see the future". Then refreshed and it was gone. I saw Chris's post on Eight Days' cancellation as it was brought, new and unready, into the world!

Writhing beings beyond comprehension lurk in the shadows, their mere presence encroaching on the edges of human understanding. A blood moon glows . I am losing my mind. I need more eyes...Mike Wallace We need to be implanted with microchips because I'd really like to know how much time I've spent playing different video games my entire life. RadicalYoseph If there are rainbows in Xenoblade Chronicles X, Reyn must be in it as well. You can't have a rainbow without Reyn, baby!The Dyslexic Laywer I really hope Xenoblade become it's own franchise, it has way too much potential to simply being reduced to 2 games.Sotanaht Touchable Holograms? When this eventually matures and hits market, almost all our regulars will vanish for weeks.

So much so I almost don't want a sequel. I honestly hope that NX gets a "Super Smash Bros. For NX" port rather than a new installment. It could be a GOTY edition and come with all of the DLC.Batthink [youtube]https://youtu.be/TSIpUX1HxGg[/youtube]
