I finally started playing this title and lemme just say.... wow no one was kidding when they said it was the best JRPG be released in some time.... I'm totally astounded actually and am posting this for the sole purpose of saying for anyone stateside, such as myself, who has been considering foregoing taking measure to play the Euro version to stop procrastinating and do it! It is totally worth it... I'm not one to usually go through such trouble to play a single title when so many others are available, some of which I'm still occupied with, but this case is an exception.... It is absolutely worth the hassle of finding a way to play, especially if you are a xeno-fan.

Now that aside the only problem is to figure out how to manage my time an acomodate finishing disgaea 4.... then again disgaea is never really finished now is it?

This recent IGN article -- http://wii.ign.com/articles/121/1215619p1.html -- is trying to remind fans to actually buy Xenoblade.

I honestly never imagined that more than a few dozen people would modify their Wii systems in order to play torrented software. After all, it takes some time and effort in order to mod a Wii console. Also, I figured they'd rather modify consoles which have more serious business style video games. And haven't fans been saying for the last few years that only western RPGs are worth playing?

Well, I plan to buy it. I'm not familiar with the Xeno series at all, but I always like a good RPG. Looking forward to April.

Xenoblade was initially called Monado. According to its Wikipedia entry (at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Xenoblade ), the name changed only because people from the previous Xeno- games worked on it. There is no story connection, and the overall gameplay of Xenoblade is non-linear... in other words, quite a bit different from the other Xeno- games, which were quite linear.

Some people like the original Playstation game Xenogears. (I borrowed it once, and didn't really enjoy its combat, or care about the story.) It's a 2 CD game, and fans tend to say that the game falls apart after the end of the first disc. Apparently the second disc is almost entirely long conversations and difficult dungeons...

Some people like the first Xenosaga game, which was on PS2. (I never gave it a chance.) It was a game that emphasized polygon graphics that look rather dated now, and had a huge emphasis on cutscenes. I've heard that the second game was a huge letdown, and that the third game barely managed to wrap up the story threads -- which were numerous, since the initial plans called for six games.

I really liked Xenosaga. Reallly bummed that the series went the way it did. Definitely wanting to by Xenoblade when it comes out.

Is Xenoblade really that good? I saw the trailer and I wanted it badly since 2011

Got my copy on Friday. Hopefully more than a couple dozen people will also purchase Xenoblade.

Anyway, I will get around to starting it up soon. At the moment, I'm playing the Virtual Console version of Uncharted Waters New Horizons...

I played it for a few hours and can definitely say that it's the best JRPG this console generation. I'd put it up there with games like Chrono Trigger and Final Fantasy IX in terms of quality. I wanna have another go at it soon.

Bought it around a month ago, put about 2 hours in, never played it since
not because it's bad (it's not lol) but because classes started for me again

so far the environment is awesome, way expansive (using the CC pro) but close up textures and of the characters is just...eh lol

If you have Xenoblade Chronicles then hang on to it. Not only is it a great game but it's not that old and a complete game (disc, box, manual) is already fetching some high prices on eBay and Amazon.

I'm glad I picked this up when I did.
