after five hours of nonstop playing I can safely say... This game is amazing! 0.0

I went into this game thinking, ok yeah this game must be over hyped (as most usually are) and I'll end up playing another average rpg with awful boring turn based battling... But no. The battle system is awesome (It's like White knight chronicles battle system but done the right way) The story just pulls you in. The battles oh my gosh. SPOILER (fought the spider battle awesome) END SPOILER.

It's like What you see on screen is what you are going to fight. Not like most rpgs that will show a horde of enemies and you end up facing maybe 4-6 of them before a cutscene. Oh man This game is awesome.

Though the only downside would be all the things they toss at you in the way of battle instructions. Just when I thought I was getting good at the battle system, the game says "nope here is another arm you can control." which is not a bad thing, but can be overwhelming.

I'm not gonna lie. I think this game is good but I don't think it's ZOMGEPIC. I can't... for some reason I cant play more then an hour. Idk why. I don't have that, don't wanna stop playing! Feeling.

Well, how far are you? I had that feelings at first, but then the game picked up and OMG IT'S SO AMAZING.
But seriously, keep playing. You'll get hooked.
Unless of course you're an evil person. Which may be likely, considering how sinister your avatar is.

Me too. I'm probably about where you are--I just met Juju's hot sister. I think it's too soon to give this game a verdict but I am surprised how good this game is so far, except the combat could be a lot better. It really doesn't give you much control over what's happening--it's still fun, but a really tough boss could stop this game dead in its tracks for me.

...in my pants.

Actually the combat is great and you do have a lot of control over what happens. Your AI controlled partners do a great job and whenever you get a premonition of a fatal attack you can warn an ally and tell them what move to use. You can also string up combos where you choose every move that everyone does and (assuming you play as Shulk) have control of the battles between mechon.

I agree about the combat being deep now. At first no. I can see how its going to get a lot harder. Definitely fun now for sure!

If you've only been in Satorl marsh in the daytime, change it to night, it is simply beautiful. Also, wasn't that music in the cutscene after the ether mine epic? Its called Unfinished battle and is my favourite song in the game. Unfortunately, that's the only time you hear it.

KaiserGX

I think so but I didn't like the song in the actual mine. It kinda seemed liked it looped too much... or maybe cause I got lost more then a couple times. I think this is why I couldn't play for more than an hour. Just that area.

Wait yes! I just went to YOUTUBE! That's when THEY arrived right. Yeah that was awesome!

I feel really bad because I'm ignoring a ton of quests. There's just SOOOOO much to do in this game, and with schoolwork, 2 jobs, and other activities, I don't have the necessary time.

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

I still haven't begun playing Xenoblade Chronicles just yet, because I just began playing Super Mario Galaxy not too long ago. I want the ability to give Xenoblade Chronicles my full and undivided gaming attention. Will anybody else be conquering the daunting task of completing all of the near 500 sidequests, like I'll be challenging myself to do?

Well, I'm trying. I just hope I don't miss any...

@TysonQ7, I'll be searching every area at every time of day, in order to make sure I don't leave any sidequests behind. I also believe you are forced to return to certain areas later on, in order to activate certain sidequests. This means you should probably return to previous areas regularly, and possibly survey those areas at different times of day as well. This is probably the only strategy that will guarantee you'll complete every sidequest in the game. It's a really good thing Xenoblade Chronicles' scenery is so damn beautiful and awe inspiring. I'll actually be much obliged to have the chance to appreciate them over and over again.

I just bought and equipped Homs Chestplate armor for Sharla.

Trouble is I can't find the plate part. I think that merchant must have screwed me. Did anyone else encounter this problem?

Nintenbro

@Gamesake, maybe the chestplate armor is in two seperate pieces. I mean, look at those lady lumps she has. Is that a tad bit of side-nipple I'm seeing?

I would really love to read an article on NintendoLife informing us of how well Xenoblade Chronicle's NTSC sales are doing so far.

Unless the game entered the top 10 for the week, we're not gonna have a clue.

Beyond Good and Evil 2 better be happening! In the meanwhile though, here's a fun little Let's Play of the original. Think you'll like the game if you like Zelda!

This game is a beast! It took me 4 1/2 hours to scout Colony 9 completely, finish 7 sidequests and I only advanced the story once.

Colony 9 is also one of the smallest areas in the game, isn't it?
