I read all the import reviews I could find of TLS. The few I found (about 6?) were of the "good, not great" verdict. The Japanese-language user-review site wiimk2.net has TLS at a a D rank. Xenoblade has a rating very few reach there... S (the highest). I'll still buy TLS if it comes to North America.
That's because Xenoblade is the best game of this generation (and one of the greatest ever). People should try to enjoy The Last Story with it's own merits when it's out, and not compare it to Xenoblade.

Merits, or lack thereof.
The Last Story's problem is that it pales as a JRPG, not as a JRPG compared to Xenoblade. It's quite simply not that great.
But then I own a PS3 so I get to play good JRPGs.

Not everyone in the west has the luxury of playing a wide array of JRPGs. I honestly couldn't give a crap if a game is weak compared to another. If the game is good, it's still good.

They're not necessarily up there with Xenoblade, but TLS is definitely receiving critical acclaim.

I own a PS3 too. Could you suggest some great JRPG for it? Everything i've seen has left an impression of being pretty uninspired, but on the other hand, even the most uninspired JRPG is a masterpiece of storytelling and drama compared to most of the western RPG:s.My taste in JRPGs: Final Fantasy 7,8 and 9 were masterpieces. Same goes to Chrono Trigger and Xenoblade. Grandia was great. FF 10 was decent. Tales of Symphonia was decent. Final Fantasy 12 was crap because of uninteresting story and lame atmosphere.

So GAME's online shop has cancelled my pre-order of the limited edition version of Last Story. Four days before its release. I've placed a pre-order with shopto.net so I hope I get it. I'll be so peeved if I don't.

I just checked my email account to see if mine had been cancelled, and fortunately, it hadn't. It wasn't the limited edition like yours though.

The implication is that they are no longer selling the Limited edition, and no-one (shopping at GAME) will get it. By which I mean, there's no ifs and buts - if you'd ordered the limited edition, you won't be getting it.
Unless they oversold it.

I had an email yesterday evening saying they are no longer going to be stocking the limited edition. My order had not been replaced with the standard edition. Though from a bit of Googling I've found out that people had started to find this out early as the beginning of February. I was only told yesterday. I've had to make a new pre-order elsewhere so I hope I get it because if I don't I will be directing all anger at GAME.
Rumour has it that Game don't have good credit with publishers so they might have had to delist this version because they can't afford to buy any in.

This is the one game I would've chosen if we'd've had a choice from the three "rainfall" games, Sakaguchi working on a game that's scored by Uematsu? To my knowledge, last game where the same thing happened was FFIX, which is my favorite RPG evar~

Sell me on this game... why is it good? Or Xenoblade? Is it just for the story then I will have to pass. I don't care much for story at all.

Actually, it's the gameplay in both games that have made them so popular. Neither game is all that special in the story department - good, even great at times, but not outstanding. The Last Story has action-oriented combat that utilizes a lot of strategy and use of your environment. The problem is that the game is rather easy, so utilization of strategy isn't always required. Xenoblade Chronicles is more traditional in its combat, but with subtle improvements that add to the game. It's biggest draw is the amount of exploration - there's pretty much no borders, so you can go anywhere so long as you're strong enough to take down the monsters. It also gives you the ability to jump, which you'd be surprised how much it helps. And the game is gorgeous, too, so you'd want to explore the world.
Or, you know, you could read the reviews. You are on a review site, after all...

I don't have time right now I leave for work in a bit. Making lunch, coming back to check if anyone replied, going back. Any of the games can you use a riffle? I also like you can change your color on The Last Story (clothes) but I don't want to get it just for that.
Edit:Nvm guess I am leaving NOW!

@KaiserGX You can play as any of the 7 main characters in XBC and Sharla's weapon is like a rifle. She is also the main healer of the game.
