Oh if only NL did not have the profanity language block...
Anywho, I probably will be picking up a copy of Xenoblade just to have a NA version, plus maybe the eBay prices will go down that day (hopefully)!
EDIT: Just in case you are wondering, the average eBay price has dropped a little to around 60-70 bucks.

Whether you played $40 or $100 you cannot complain about the price you paid for all the hours of entertainment and joy this game brought to your life.

I applaud you, after a day of not finding one item I would have just looked it up online.

SORT OF SPOILERS BUT NOT REALLY BECAUSE IT WON'T MAKE SENSE TO AMERICAN/EUROPEAN PLAYERS WHO HAVEN'T MADE IT UP TO THIS POINT

Did I ever mention how much I love hanging around the Black Wreckage? I don't know why, perhaps it's just the symbolism that keeps me there. :3

I've considered getting Xenoblade Chronicles today from Gamestop for $40 (Black Friday), but I can't help but think that some time down the road, it may do a MH3 -> MH3U move from Wii to Wii U, in that it will at the very least be rendered at 1080p with Gamepad/Pro controller support.

I wonder how much Gamestop would give me if I bought it today for $40 and sold it another day when the price goes back up to $70....

I guess I should ask this...

Being a fan of the earlier Final Fantasy games and other Square RPGs games prior to the Playstation era, would you think I'd like this game?

Well, ended up getting it, though I was surprised by the response of the employees handling the transaction. Normal responses were given, like "I can't believe we're selling it for that much", as it was a BF deal of $40 vs $70. I asked if I could check the disc and such, he said sure, and as I was checking it and he was ringing it up, I thought I heard him say (with regard to the condition), "They pretty much took the wrapping off, so it's like new"....I kid you not. I wish I had my phone out and was recording the conversation. I wouldn't call it an admittance, but the suspicion rolling around of them having received a new stock of reprints, opening them up, and slapping "Pre-owned" on them so they could sell for $70+ doesn't seem as far-fetched anymore.

Anyways, the disc looked superb with the exception of a thumbprint along the edges, and all the booklets/manuals were included. There was even a CN card in it with a code. I asked about whether the code had been used, and he said "I don't think so." I don't want to register it yet unless I can hold off on completing the survey until after next July, as that's when the new CN cycle begins.

@Discostew Congratulations on a great buy. I have little doubt that you won't enjoy the game, though with Gamstop, you do have a period of seven days to take it back if you don't. And no, it doesn't really sound far fetched when you say that. I've got nothing against Gamestop myself, but I sometimes have a slight feeling they are trying to nickle and dime you at every turn. Course, I've been in a few, so it's not every one, but still...

Anyways, I look forward to hearing what you may think. :)

In terms of the fact that you like good JRPGs, sure, but this game is very much a game that's doing its own thing and is only story-wise even comparable to old school FF or the like (mainly because every other JRPG owes their storytelling to FFIV and beyond practically). It's very much a game trying to keep the spirit of JRPGs but doing something good and new and different with it, mainly by taking ideas from non-JRPG RPGs and FFXII and seeing how well they can use that while still ultimately making a JRPG that people would immediately qualify as a JRPG.

ARRRGGGHHH!!!!
Now to explain my outburst. So I've stopped playing this for at least a few months, but now decided to get back into it. I immediately remembered why I quit the first time.

I'm at the boss battle with Xord in the Ether Mines, and no matter how many times I try I keep losing! I even know what to do: fill up the Party Gauge and Chain Attack the usual Break/Topple bit. My team is even at level 26 and I use Enchant at the start. But for some reason nothing I do works. Even if I manage to correctly get those gauge boosting events (where you press B at the right moment), Xord keeps spamming those hard-hitting moves and ends up killing my other two members before I can get the freaking gauge filled.

And I've watched a YouTube video where somebody with the exact same strategy and movesets I have win the battle (at a level lower then me no less) within five minutes. Do I need better armor/crystals? What am I doing wrong?!

@WingedSnagret : It's a hard fight. I recommend playing as Sharla for this, and only this, fight. Spam Thunder Bullet on Xord, it will actually do damage. Other than that, heal everyone. Have you been upgrading everyone's attacks?

Edit: Oh! Try fighting other enemies in the Ether Mine and run into battle with a full Party Gauge from those fights. That will seriously help.

@Wings I'd say keep doing what you're doing, it's how I did it. Make sure you kill his goons though, and you kinda have to give Xord everything when he's down. If you can't beat the fish boss at the top though, you won't beat Xord. I'd suggest going back and seeing if you can wreck him. :3

The first time I played, I hadn't been upgrading attacks for my party members and found Xord to be extremely difficult. As soon as everyone was upgraded, he dropped like a fly. Not sure if that's your problem, but it's a really good suggestion.

Playing as Sharla is probably also a good idea since you can control healing instead of relying on AI.

I'm STILL stuck here!!! I'm legitimately trying so hard to continue this game, I really am, but this is just unbearably frustrating!
