Summary: Xenoblade has been one of my most anticipated games since it was announced. As a fan of Xenogears, and many of the other games that Takahashi has worked on, I'm always thrilled to play new games by his team at Monolith. Many of us waited eagerly for an announcement of a localization. I pre-ordered the game and was excited when it finally arrived. That said, 110 hours later, I found that I was forcing myself to try to finish the last few hours of gameplay.
Summary: I've wanted to play this game for a couple of years now...and I finally got my copy in the mail. Now, I must admit that I've only put about 35 minutes into the game, but my mind has already been blown. There are three key reasons why I feel this way already about Xenoblade: 1) The first thing I noticed was the FANTASTIC voice acting, probably the best in an RPG since Final Fantasy XII..wow, just wow!
Summary: I originally skipped the Wii but I bought the Wii U, primarily to play the upcoming sequel 'X'. Xenoblade's released went under my radar, after hearing from people calling it one of the BEST RPG of this (7th) Console generation, I became intrigued. Graphics: impressive for the Wii, huge environments, solid framerate.
Summary: People literally had to beg Nintendo for an American release and was it worth it...I would say it was.The thing that captivated me was the world the game takes place on.The Bionis is a giant mech like being that is shown during the beginning of the game fighting another giant whose name is the Mechonis.While you are playing you can see the mechonis when you look towards the sky.
Summary: This was more or less the deciding factor in getting a Wii-U to begin with, and I've not been disappointed yet. The price tag seems fairly steep, more so since I picked up my copy a few months back, but if you can get it for around the 100$ range you won't be sorry. Assuming you're a proper RPG fan of course. I mean I've spent more money on Diablo III and it's expansion, and that's basically just for mindless click-fest gameplay..some story about evil, kill stuff, etc...
