From what I've seen the art book isn't that great anyway, it's only 20 pages long...

I had no idea this game was coming out so soon! I realized it the other day and I'm going to be getting it for sure...even though I'm a bit doubtful about it. Besides the whole living on giants thing, nothing I've seen has really wowed me. I'm hoping my impression of it is changed once I start playing.

EDIT: Also, do any of the playable characters use long range weapons? I think I read somewhere about a girl who has guns but she's a healer--is she the only one?

As well as Sharla, there is also Melia who is the mage of the game.

For anyone who's already playing it, any tips on the Tentacle boss about 6 hrs in? Is it just attack the tentacles first or what? I'm also having trouble with the Mechon in the area before, there's too many and they swamp me every time.

Great game so far, fun combat. Everyone waiting for 2 more days, it's worth the wait.

In that boss fight, make sure you use the new Monado power you get in the cutscene before the boss fight. It increases the evasion of a chosen party member for a limited amount of time. Although, I think you might get that in a cutscene that happens in the middle of the boss fight. It has been a while since I did that boss fight, so I can't remember if that cutscene is in the middle of the boss fight or at the start of it.

Only one more days wait my fellow Americans. Are you as hyped as I am?

I love the "try again" approach they took with battles. Especially with the difficulty surging now.
So far, I've played it in 2 hr stretches, for a total of 8 hrs. I wish I had started this back in February, lol.

Tales of Graces F has been distracting me, too.

I came home and there was a message from Gamestop reminding me that it would be there for me tomorrow!

Yeah, I received the same automated message from GameStop today. I've heard a rumor that you won't receive an artbook, if you didn't pre-order from GameStop by the 26th of March. I pre-ordered online March 28th I believe, and the artbook was still listed in the product details a day later. I better receive the artbook regardless, or I'm going to complain until I receive something for free. You're probably smurking while you're saying to yourself, "Yeah right, you actually think GameStop is going to give you something for free. Hahaha!" Well, it is wholly their incompetence and unprofessionalism that caused this situation, because the artbook should've have been unlisted after the last one left had been ordered. I implore you to complain, if this issue arises for you too. False advertisement should never be accepted from a company as well established as GameStop.

They can't give you an artbook IF they've run out of stock of it and it wouldn't be fair to shortchange someone else for one if they ordered it before you.

@sykotek, and allowing the artbook to be listed in the product details after the fact is false adverstisement. It's not my fault they're too incompetent and unprofessional to update their website as it should've been.

Question for those that played this game. How does the game control with the Wii remote? I miss placed my ccp and don't want to really buy it again.

I won't even be opening my copy until I finish playing through, "Super Mario Galaxy," and, "Arc Rise Fantasia," first. If the value of, "Xenoblade Chronicles," rockets because of its limited release, I might not open it all.

@Tech101, I believe the review on NintendoLife stated that the WiiMote & Nunchuck combo functions well enough.

Picked up Xenoblade this morning from Gamestop. (Sadly the artbook shipped later than the game, so I have to go back in today to get it )

So far I like it. Just the opening scene was pretty awesome! And the voice acting is very well done (which is nice after playing rpgs with poor voice acting) The gameplay is pretty good to, though it does kind of remind me of the poor combat system in WKC. But everything else makes up for that

Well @sykotek, I received an artbook, even though I guess wasn't supposed to. I pre-ordered seven days before the release date, and to receive the artbook you were supposed to pre-order eight days or more before the release date. My pre-order wasn't considered a premium pre-order, but I received an artbook anyway. I told them the artbook was included in the product details when I placed my pre-order online, and this new girl gave it to me. Oh well, I guess somebody else is sh*t-out-of-luck. lol

Yeah I pre-ordered just last week also and got the artbook, I was a little disapointed that it didn't include rough concept sketches, but its a beautiful book.

Okay, so you got someone else's artbook, does it really make you feel that good to shortchange someone who deserves one to need to gloat about it? Congratuf*ckulations, you're scum with an artbook.

Just played the intro, its a little difficult getting used to, but I'm starting to get the hang of it. I'm used to Skyward Sword where you control every bit of movement rather then just being in control of positioning and who you attack. But this is cool also.

The store guy said that they had extras.

It doesn't irk me at all, but it does show that you're an inconsiderate toolbag for not taking it into account that you deprived someone else who deserved one. Under normal circumstances, I'd be quite glad that you got one, but gloating when you know you didn't deserve one... absolutely ridiculous...and otherwise attempting to post it just to bother me, immensely childish, but nice to know you've taken valuable time out of your day to try, I'm flattered, really...troll harder in the future.
