242w ago - Team RamRod's Brandon Akiaten has announced that new High Velocity Bowling characters and Ball Packs are slated to hit PSN this week. A video is below, and to quote:

Happy Holidays Bowling fans! 2009 is almost over and we wanted to close the year out with a PAINful Xmas! That's right... Jarvis and Ginger are coming to High Velocity Bowling.

These are both available this Thursday 12/10 for just $0.99 each, and they each come with a new customized bowling lane and bowling ball! If that wasn't enough we also have two new ball packs coming your way also for $0.99 each!

For those late bloomers who haven't played the game yet, now's the perfect time to try it out. It uses the SIXAXIS motion sensors so you hold the controller and swing your arm like you're throwing the ball.

With 4-player local play and 2-player online, it's great fun for family and friends, and can be had for only $9.99 on PSN. In addition to the eight quirky, unique characters included in the base game, there are a bunch of other downloadable characters and ball packs available via in-game commerce or the PlayStation Store as well, on top of Jarvis and Ginger coming this week.

Here's the breakdown of the goodies coming this Thursday:

We'll have to wait until we get the final build of the game.

Video: White Knight Chronicles Characters GamesCom Trailer

200°
258w ago - Here is a new White Knight Chronicles 'Characters' trailer for PS3 from GamesCom earlier today.

The video's caption simply reads: This band of friends is ready to fight for what's right.

Some background details on the title, as follows: White Knight Chronicles, like most other console RPGs, is presented in third-person perspective.

The player can freely choose which character to control. Like any other RPG, the characters gain experience points and level up, becoming stronger over the course of the game.

Level-5 conceives White Knight Chronicles as having 100 hours of gameplay, a length Akihiro Hino considers to be a full length RPG, going against the pressure to make White Knight Chronicles a launch title and cutting the story short.

Check out the trailer below!

259w ago - GameStop has reportedly revealed two more characters in "Zigo the Fisherman" and "Blanche the Actress," available "exclusively" through pre-order of the game via in-store ads.

New Final Fantasy XIII Characters Detailed in Jump Magazine

300°
262w ago - A scan from the latest issue of Jump Magazine reveals some new Final Fantasy XIII character details, and [Register or Login to view links] forum member Rpgmonkey has translated some of the scan, as follows:

Hope Estheim
• The silver-haired boy
• Uses a boomerang
• Hates Snow for getting his mother involved in the battle
• New Monster, "Cie Corpse (Husk?)"
• The eventual fate of a l'Cie
• Vanille's weapon is a fishing rod
• Lightning's great skill, "Air Blast"
• A l'Cie becomes a Cie Corpse when there's an unclear objective and they exceed their time limit, or something like that.

Vanille is shown in several of the trailers, but she is still a mystery. Shown in the trailers as a young girl looking a lot like FFX's Rikku, Vanille will use a yo-yo type of weapon.

It's not heavily detailed as to what abilities she'll have or what kind her weapon will use, but she'll be swinging it around during battles.

In a later post he clarifies some of this information:

I don't know if it's exactly a fishing rod or it's just the most accurate description, but apparently she attacks with a needle attached to a wire, so it's at least the easiest...
