Jade Empire, a RPG for the XBox, will be released soon. I'm tempted to get it for a couple of reasons. One, there aren't that many games that uses a chinese setting, so I'm interested in seeing how it is portrayed. If you noticed, game makers tend to use Japan for far-east settings with its Samurais, Ninjas, etc. Granted that many game makers are Japanese, I am still curious why so few games uses Ancient China as a setting.
Just having a game with a particular locale as background is hardly reason to buy it(most likely it'll be $50-$60), but the makers of Jade Empire, Bioware, have a very good track record of making solid RPGs. Anyway, gonna wait for it to come out and see if there are any sales.
