I've always been on the fence with Xenoblade Chronicles X, Tokyo Mirage Sessions and Bayonetta 2. Bayonetta 2 seems to be a choppy game, Xenoblade Chronicles "empty" but about Tokyo Mirage Sessions I don't remember hearing any bad things about it.

I will always recommend Maiden of Black Water as one of the games that best uses the GamePad but one should stand up for battling ghosts.

@Anti-Matter I confirm to you that F1 Race Stars is boxed ONLY in Japan.

I have almost the Wii U's fullset and I know what is missing to complete the entire EU collection, so no there isn't a box version in Europe.

@Cobalt
I see...
Thanks for the info.
I guess i need to look again the Japanese version Wii U games library.

@BlueOcean: XCX isn't what I'd call empty by any means (for the most part; depends on where you are and how you define "empty"). There's plenty to do and explore. Pieces of the White Whale to salvage, creatures/monsters/tyrants to fight, new areas of the map to discover, probes to plant, quests to find, materials to mine and gather, armor/Skells to upgrade and/or craft....The game will keep you busy for a very long time. I sunk a little over 100 hours into it (I finished the main story and did a lot of exploring/many quests) and was nowhere near 100%ing the game when I finally put it down.

I can't speak for the other two as I haven't played them.

@Tyranexx Xenoblade X is the best of the 3. The univers is outstanding, the possibilities are endless, the way MonolithSoft made the game is pure GENIUS.

I really love Xenoblade Chronicles on the Wii and I just like Xenoblade 2 but I adore Xenoblade X.
I have put more than 400 hours in it and I regret even not a second. Phenomenal, this is the term that I'd use to describe this piece of art.

@Cobalt: I admittedly haven't played the other two but intend to at some point (at least XC2; not sure when/if I'll get to XC1...sooo many RPGs I need to play....). I normally play RPGs for the story more than anything else, but XCX was a nice change of pace by shifting the focus away a bit and encouraging the player to explore Mira and get to know its inhabitants. Many of the side quests were interesting and at times hit upon different genres and dealt with some IRL themes (such as murder and prejudice; seriously, those poor Ma-Non). The game isn't without flaws, but I'd say it's a good candidate for a Switch port/remaster in the future and is a good reason for someone to currently go out and pick up a Wii U.

I definitely don't regret the time that I've spent with the game.

@Tyranexx I liked Xenoblade Chronicles a bit but I think the world was too big and uninteresting and the side quests ridiculously boring, The combat is chaotic although I know you have to observe the enemy and change characters and strategy, but still chaotic when a few different enemies gather around you. What are the differences between both, if you played the first game?

BlueOcean

@BlueOcean: Unfortunately, I haven't played the other two games just yet. Some of the side quests are admittedly kind of meh, but there are some gems to be found. For example, one quest chain (without spoiling much) dealt with how a few humans felt about an integrated society with other alien races and the extremes to which they would go to prevent that from happening. It dealt with themes like discrimination/prejudice really well. Another weird yet interesting chain gave me Back To The Future vibes.

The world of Mira is quite expansive, but with the exception of one continent that I admittedly wasn't overly fond of (though others like it, and it does have a pretty decent theme), I enjoyed exploring a lot of it. Some of the sights to be found are quite breathtaking and/or odd in a good way, and you're encouraged to explore for multiple reasons that benefit you.

Combat does take some getting used to, but after a time I adapted to it and quite enjoyed it. I wouldn't say that I ever became a complete master of it, but I managed well enough to get by. I became a lot better near the end, though I had to do some research online to become better. FWIW, Skell combat is definitely fun and in some ways changes the dynamics of combat; plus, flying is pretty fun too.

If you're still unsure, I recommend looking up some random, non-spoilery gameplay on YouTube in order to help see if the game is really for you.

I too am on the fence with XCX. Luckily a friend I reconnected with recently has a Wii U and is going to let me try it next week. Maiden of Black Water was a pretty well-made game with good graphics, but damn if it didn't scare the piss out of me. Just can't take the frights!!

The only reason that I don't own Maiden of Black Water is because it was never released here physically. I had enough room on my Wii U's storage to download and play the FTS chapters, but not enough room for the full (digital) game. I quite enjoyed what little I did play of the game.

@Tyranexx

Never understood that.

What a stupid decision, Japan and here in Europe got it but they skrewed the US... :/

@Cobalt: I considered importing for about five seconds, then I remembered that region locking is a thing.... I mean, I could technically expand the external storage, but at this point I'm not sure if I should even bother for just one game.

Um...
Do you think Xenoblade Chronicles X is quite easy to play for a JRPG game ?

I have played some Final Fantasy games but still new with Battle system & Character's Parameter growth on Xenoblade X.

From what i watched from Youtube, i was kinda a bit interested with Avatar creation, kinda like The Sims, but after watching some Missions and Battle time, i was kinda confused to understand the gameplay mechanism. Is it more complex than Xenosaga (Battle time as human and as Mecha) ?

And i have read the content inside the game, kinda like Xenoblade 2 (Violence, Use of Alcohol, Mild Language, Animated blood, Suggestive theme)

If i choose this game, what should i aware from this game as a gamer who tends to play a lot of Kiddie games and a few Teen JRPG games ?

@Anti-Matter

Xenoblade Chronicles X is one of the densier RPG I ever played.
If there is one RPG that I recommand to read the (electronic)manual IS THIS ONE !
There is so much stuff... so so much... that it's insane.

So, if you're the type of gamer who likes to be involved in a game for a long period of time, go ahead, otherwise choose Xenoblade 1 or 2 rather than X. they are more accessible.

I've kind of decided to take XCX off my list too. I never got the chance to grab XC1 for its official price nor discounted, and now it got off the roof, and I preordered XC2, but cancelled it because I knew I wouldn't have the time to play it, with BOTW still going on and Skyrim next on the list.

I've reached a point in my life, with a 1 year old at home, that I don't really have time and don't want to spend a whole year in a RPG, playing on the bus to -and from- work and playing less than 2 hours a day. Besides, I have several RPGs already, so I don't need more, regardless of the quality of the games I'm missing. I have to accept this situation. And if I have to choose wisely, complex RPGs are not my cup of tea anyway. I'm a Dragon Quest guy.

Speaking about Xenoblade Chronicles X, is there any option to MUTE All the conversations ?
Because from i watched on Youtube, they were Chatterbox during Battle. They were too noisy.

@Anti-Matter LOL

If I tell you that it's part of the gameplay, do you believe me ?

@Anti-Matter The first Xenoblade is somewhat similar to FFXII, which I believe you've either played or want to play.

And while I've never played Xenoblade X, from what I hear it's one of the least accessible RPGs around.

Still waiting for Atlus to make Snowboard Kids 3
