So the consensus is clear: this community is excited to play Metroid Other M remake the most.

Xenoblade Chronicles X, easily. XCX is already comfortable with it's formula, meanwhile we know very little about what to expect from Zelda U. Sure, it will be the greatest game of all time for a few months, but after a year or so, we'll all realize how inferior it is to Twilight Princess, the perfect Zelda game, and wait for the 4K3D Remake of a true Zelda game.

Personally, Yoshi's Woolly World. However, my fiancée to take Zelda U in a heart beat.

My game library ranges from Mario Kart to Call of Duty to Tales of Xillia to Diablo 3 to Forza. To me gaming is about having fun - not blindly supporting only one company while thumbing your nose at "the evil other systems."

Up until a few days ago I'd have said XCX, no question. But that was just based on the videos that I've seen for it, supported by the reputation of the original XC, which I'd never played.

But I've been playing XC the last week or so and I'm not sure I like it. I love the setting and the feel of it, but I don't like the fighting mechanics of the game, which from what I've played so far is a pretty significant problem, because it seems it's a fight with something round every corner.

Meanwhile, Nintendo have done a great job with the quality of their releases on the Wii U. Makes me think Zelda U is almost guaranteed to be one of their best...

What better way to celebrate than firing something out of the pipe?

Neither, as they wouldn't be finished and they would probably pretty buggy

People keep saying the Xbox One doesn't have Backwards Compatibility.

The character faces are absolutely hideous. Besides, even if they were fixed, I have no desire to play XCX after being bored to tears by XC

I would like to have X more, but only because I actually know thing one about it, unlike Zelda, which we've seen a shiny cutscene trailer and 2 minutes of fuzzy, off-screen footage of. I mean, I just find it very difficult to get excited for what could easily be "Steampunk Leaf Sailing: The Game" for all we know...

Xenoblade Chronicles X.

I've got my Zelda fix with Windwaker HD, Link Between Worlds and Majora's Mask. Not to mention I'm in the middle of playing Skyward Sword AND Ocarina of Time 3D.

So ya, total hype for Zelda U, but WAY more excited to get my hands on Xenoblade Chronicles X.

PLAYING
NS: Pokemon Sword, The Witcher 3, Luigis Mansion 3, DQXIS
X1X: Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order

MOST EXCITED FOR
NS: Metroid Prime 4, Zelda BotW 2, Xenoblade, Trials of Mana, Bayonetta 3
PS4: FFVII Remake
X1: Cyberpunk 2077

Xenoblade is bar none one of THE most beautiful Wii U games we've seen to date. Even so, who care what it looks like- it's the game that matters.

And the faces look fine. There's nothing wrong with the faces in XCX. That's just how the Japanese animate their characters. Lest we forget, this is a JRPG, not a western AAA. And pertaining to the animations, personally I think they look pristine and top notch, especially considering its all customized to the individual player. Certainly looks a heck of a lot better than the original Xenoblade, and that game was universally praised as the best looking game on Wii.

I think X looks quite nice, after finding XC pretty horrible as a result of the low texture quality and sparse animations. But the faces... yeah, yeah... yeah. Somehow they're even worse than XC's faces, despite having so much more graphical detail. They're missing imperfection and subtle animation. I think that the Tales style; cleaner than XC, but not as static as XenoX, would have been a better path to take (http://www.siliconera.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2008/11/tales-of-symphonia-dawn-of-the-new-world-2.jpg)

I've got to say though, purely visually, I prefer the art style of ZeldU. It's a very fluid watercolor that conveys a lot more (https://margethelarge.files.wordpress.com/2014/07/tumblr_n6yk2sh3ng1qcbq9jo5_r1_500.gif). Granted, Link will be the prettiest person in the game, but just look at how his eyes, eyebrows, lips, and hair move. Those small details convey so much life.

Woah, woah, woah 'the Japanese' that's a bit of a broad generalization there, buddy. Comparing the faces in Xenoblade Chronicles, to Xenoblade X, to Zelda U, to Tales games, to Final Fantasy 15 is a huge variety of styles. Not every Japanese game follows the common '3D anime' style that you're referencing. Zelda U and especially Final Fantasy 15 (certainly a JRPG) are notable exceptions (http://www.ps4site.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/06/gladiolus-amicitia.jpg). Now what does that look like? Oh yeah; Geralt (http://operationrainfall.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/06/E3-2014-Xbox-Media-Conference-2014-06-09-10-38-53.jpg).

Just because Japanese people made a face doesn't mean it always looks dead inside.
