    Fuck yes! Being a Wii owner is a lot like being PC gamer owning a Mac. There isn't too many things offered (besides the big ones like Zelda and Mario) to give a shit about. Then Xenoblade gets dropped, and suddenly we're frothing at the goddamn mouth for it.

    For those wondering why, Xenoblade is the spiritual successor to Tetsuya Takahashi's Xenogears (developed by Square) and Xenosaga (developed by Namco). Both gaming giants, however, couldn't support his full vision and as such he refocused into getting his own gaming company Monolith Software. It was originally called "Monada: The beginning of the world" but the staff at Monolith decided to put the "Xenoblade" tie in as a tribute to Tetsuya, who has been completely fucked over by two software giants who promised to continue the Xeno-line but pulled out for the reason that JRPG's that aren't widely known (Final Fantasy, etc) don't make a lot of money.

    Xenogears and Xenosaga are, at best, cult classics.

    If you're in the UK or Japan you're already familiar with it, but the US localization has been very, very, VERY shaky. I.E. Nintendo of America publicly stated with what I imagine a stone-faced expression that "We have no plans to port it over to the US"

    Us stateside fans could do nothing but grit our teeth as we watched youtube videos of what was being denied to us.

    Until Nintendo finally caved in (VERY RARE) to the wishes of US fans, now we're getting it in the spring!

    I'm getting pretty fucking sick of fantasy games, I'll tell you that. They're not even trying to be different like 40K. God, what I'd do for an RPG set in at least the 40K universe. The rest are just so fucking mundane and repetitive. I can't even play Fallout 3 any more because it reminds me of Oblivion too much.

    I could care less about shitty emo filled jrpgs. Hopefully this sells really bad and Nintendo will learn their lesson.

    This would be awesome if I could ever get into any other RPG's besides the early Pokemon games.

    you know man, you could have just imported the european version and run it on a softmodded wii (softmodding takes like 10 minutes on that thing)

    or hell, you coulda just used one of those programs that loads the game off of an external hard drive and then downloaded the iso
