I haven't opened my copy yet. I can't put down Kid Icarus: Uprising and now I just bought Plants vs. Zombies which is insanely addictive.

I was thinking though, especially since people are kind of complaining about the combat, wouldn't it be amazing if a Zelda game had the world of Xenoblade. Combine the combat of Skyward Sword (and all the other elements that make a great Zelda) with the enormous, invisible wall free world of Xeno and you might just have the greatest game ever conceived.

Put down the 3ds slowly. Back away and fire up the Wii. It misses you.

I'm having a hard time as well. I really want to get into it but don't have a couple of hours to set a side at the moment.

Personally, I want Monolith Soft to work on the next Pokemon game. Give us a big world to traverse with the pokemon on screen (maybe even big ones that we aren't ready to deal with just yet), real-ish time gameplay (hopefully with a pause system for item menus), an encouragement system, some sort of quest system (at least more little story events). I could see it being pretty damn good.

Same here. You walk into town and the game goes, "Here's a couple hundred thousand things you can do!"
And I was all like, "Oh, it's gonna be one of THOSE games..."Sigh

Just so you guys know, you can save a lot of those quests for later, and just focus on the main story for the time being. Just stock up on the quests so you know what you can and can't miss, then move on. You don't have to spend hours upon hours doing everything in an area, and in fact, I highly recommend against doing that. You'll burn yourself out that way.

I think all pokemon fans have been wanting a game like that for a looooong time. I just don't see it happening any time soon.

@Tech, Lol, I know man, I know. I might play Xeno tonight. Maybe.

Is there anything Important I need all the collectibles for? Or can I sell a few to buy better equipment?

Still rockin' the GameBoy brick. Yes, I do believe it's portable. It fits in my satchel.

EGM gave this game a 6.5. I guess every good game these days has to have a troll review.

It took a while to reach this point, but I was truly awestruck by the game today when I emerged from a lengthy cave and was able to see the full sky in all its glory; you probably know the part I'm talking about. I'm also getting better at understanding the combat system, but that one moment alone has certainly sold me on the game with or without other flaws.

To others who also struggled at the beginning, I'd say that it is a bit of a slow and confusing start, but the payoff seems to be well worth the effort.

Really a 6.5. I haven't read egm in years and now I know why. Has anyone even given this game lower then an 8?!

I think the art design is great and most of the time the graphics are breath taking. However the detail up close shows just how simple the graphics can be sometimes. Characters can look like all one big shape and not as much detail as they could be. I do understand the graphics took a back seat to game play and story and that's fine!

PS. Zack I'm playing KI atm!

@Cloudcult10 The tutorial mentioned some sort of reward for collecting a row or set, but I'm not sure what the rewards are yet.

@SamuriaShyGuy Are you sure it's a troll review? maybe they just genuinely don't like it.

I'm about an hour into the game so far, I love the story and the visuals are impressive. I'm not a huge fan of the combat system, but I'm sure the more I play the better I'll become.

I give EGM a 4.0 out of 10. I find that I get more enjoyment by looking at the clouds than reading something out of that magazine from the 90s.

Sorry, but my OCD won't allow me to do that. I can pull away and continue with the story after a while, but I must do at least some exploring and questing when I get to a new area.

Fortunately I gave up on the OCD completionist side of gaming years ago, so I can just pursue a couple side quests and a little wandering before moving right on with the story. With a game this immense, I'd never finish it if I was concerned with seeing everything.

Hoping this is great when I get my hands on it tomorrow. Especially considering Uprising was a disappointment.

Just for you.

No, you will hate this as well because you dislike things that are too amazing for you to comprehend.
Or you know, you just have different tastes. Hahaha... That would make you REALLY inhuman.
