About Judy

As WP's managing editor, I edit review and preview articles, attempt to keep up with the frantic pace of Rainier's news posts, and keep our reviewers on deadline, which is akin to herding cats. When I have a moment to myself and don't have my nose in a book, I like to play action/RPG, adventure and platforming games.

Available exclusively for the Nintendo GameCube, Baten Kaitos takes players on an intense and innovative epic journey to save a world in crisis. Set in a civilization on the verge of destruction from a powerful and ancient conspiracy, players join Kalas and Xelha -- two unlikely heroes -- as they embark on an uncertain journey in hopes of saving their cherished world.

Unlike the typical card-based video game, Baten Kaitos introduces an engaging battle and item system, providing more than 1,000 different objects that players can use to aid the story’s heroes on their way. “Magnus” cards are used to capture the essence of certain objects, weapons, or spells, for use in solving puzzles, combat, healing, and more.

“The game’s stunning graphics, brilliant 3D character designs by Nakaba Higurashi, and its mystical nature set Baten Kaitos apart from other titles within the RPG genre,” said Garry Cole, executive vice president at Namco Hometek Inc. “The overall beauty of the game and the unique ‘Magnus’ card battle system are sure to meet the high expectations of RPG fans in the U.S. market.”
