It'd be nice if it were similar to white knight chronicles, where you create a character for use online and in the main story, but he/she doesn't impact the story directly. Granted WKC isn't the best example of a stellar single player experience, but it gets my point across.

I'd be okay with that if your character doesn't stand around like a schlub the whole time with only two characters acknowledging your presence. I got the impression the avatar was just tagging along and wouldn't take a hint.

If there was one thing I took away from the cutscenes in Xenoblade, it's that any type of character creator in this game is going to have a breast slider like WKC did. (My god Venea! Did your tits have to be front and center in every cutscene you were in? And Seven, you're not helping things either with your chest piece macguffin right on top of your cleavage window. Though at least you weren't jiggling around like Sharla was all the time.)

To be fair, you're only going to be in a shop for little more than a minute at best.

Whatever sets he uses though will be enshrouded by lensflare and excessive bloom.

At least the ship designs can't be any worse than second trilogy's were.

Also, the force turns out to be comprised of Red Matter.

Yeah, this game has reams of text from all the supports, Everybody's Room, the fortune teller's remarks, and so on. Especially if you include the DLC which feature some maps that are nothing but building rapport between characters.

Also there was fast travel in the Ballad of Gales melody.

Back on topic, my first impression from the teaser trailer is that it's a direct sequel to Xenoblade and not just another "xeno" title, but we'll see. Will we see the story take place on the Mechonis titan? If you notice the fighting mechanics and exploring lush fields laden with giant enemies, it's very reminiscent of Xenoblade. The big red "x" did throw me off though. We'll just have to wait for more details to come.
If it is a direct sequal to Xenoblade, then I don't think it can take place on Mechonis.

As I recall at the end of Xenoblade, the world was reborn beyond just the two titans. Also I seem to recall that Mechonis was either seriously damaged or destroyed about 1/2 to 3/4s of the way through Xenoblade.

You know, I don't see why they used the Xenogears X. Xenoblade had nothing to do with that, other than the name and the homage. I love the X, but it just seems cruel to tease us as though it'll be a new "Xeno" game like that.
Maybe they are going to do a game "set" in the Xeno  chronology that uses a version of the Xenoblade battle system.

It's likely to tie into Xenoblade at some point. If the face at the end didn't belong to Shulk then it belonged to a dead ringer for him.

This game also looks to be multiplayer as hell given that not only were the characters named Player 1/2/3/ect but that when one of them was in the mecha the name was replaced by what looked to be a fixed name.

Also the mecha was referred to as a "Doll" in the mecha's fuel gauge up in the top right hand corner. There's also a second gauge in the players' UI plate that looks to replace the facial tension display Xenoblade had, further cementing the hypothesis that players will be able to make their own custom characters.

Plus the arts on the art pallet changed based on what weapon the player was equipped with or whether the player was riding the mecha or not, which further suggests that rather than taking along existing characters with preset skills and arts you'll be able to select and possibly even change your loadout.

And finally, I noticed when the player was in the mecha hacking the parts off of an enemy I noticed that not a lot happened to the enemy's health bar, which suggests that doing so either meant the player had crossed a health threshold, or that there are secondary targets one can attack to weaken an enemy by or to loot when the battle is all said and done (which feels like something Monster Hunter would do).

Some more information including that it is indeed an RPG, and that I don't have to board the last train for the coast.
4043  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Megami Tensei Topic on: January 23, 2013, 10:35:04 PM
Why has no one recommended Digital Devil Saga yet?
i was thinking the same thing i played dds after p3fes and nocturne and really i think it's the middle ground between the two.

i'm surprised that no one has been talking on this thread about the smt fire emblem cross over yet. i bet klyde get's a wii u for it...

I suspect it's because all we have for info on it right now is that it exists, its going to be either taking something old from both series or making something new, and that its going to be for the WiiU.
4044  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Wind Waker U on: January 23, 2013, 10:26:43 PM
I was thinking that given how the controller for the Wii U is The Wind Waker can benefit greatly from it.

You could finally use the Tingle Tuner without the need of an another system and hunting for treasure in the ocean can be a more interesting affair, especially for when you have to get the Triforce charts.

Or, god willing, they can just get rid of the whole Triforce chart sequence entirely because it made me hate Tingle for all eternity. Or at the very least, remove the absurd rupee cost. FUCK YOU TINGLE!

I love Wind Waker and all, but I thought it was filled with more grievances than the rest of the games.  Triforce Shard hunting was just mean.  I hated Skyward Sword, but I liked their approach to the Triforce even if the dungeon it was in was a copy/paste waste of precious....um, Zelda Dungeon-ing.

I liked the concept of SS's final dungeon shuffling. I just wish it wasn't Dungeon Shuffling for Kids (or at least it didn't recycle a mid boss by turning it into the boss).

But getting rid of the Triumph Forks hunts and/or replacing them with another dungeon would be nice (even if it means no longer having a use for Rupees since Tingle's services, Beedle's shop, the Auction, and a handful of minigames were the only meaningful expenses in the game).

Another wish on my HD remake wishlist though would be to make combat not completely piss easy (that action roll business neutered every non boss/boat fight in the game). That, and making it so that you didn't have to come to a complete stop every time you wanted to do something on the ship (including, but not limited to, launching bombs to fight enemies like those sharks).

Meanwhile all this SMT talk has finally convinced me to start me up some Nocturne, when, of course, one of my siblings just had to come by yesterday to borrow my PS2 for the indeterminate future. At least I still have Strange Journey and, if I'm really desperate, Persona 4: The Golden (not that I don't want to play this but it's intended as a gift in the near future and it would be kinda tacky to play someone's intended gift before I give it to them).
4046  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Yoshi's Epic Yarn on: January 23, 2013, 01:35:54 PM
Since every other big shiny new reveal from today's Nintendo Direct video got a thread I figured why not. And besides, if its anything like Yoshi's Island (save for the babies) then it'll totally be worth it (plus 1998 was forever ago).
4047  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Wind Waker U on: January 23, 2013, 01:29:02 PM
Who knew that PXZ getting a localization would be the least surprising surprise news this week (or at least the least interesting).

But yeah, would totally love to see this. Even beginning to imagine the Ganondorf fight at the end in glorious HD is almost enough to get me to cream my pants (and then there's yet another SMT/Persona game and...wait, what! *creams pants*).

My one issue is that there seems to be a bit too much bloom in the screenshots/trailer, but that'll be nothing but water under the bridge if they either give the third pearl a proper dungeon or make an extra big extra island that, while similar in principle to the Ocean King Temple/Tower of Spirits of PH/SS respectfully, isn't made mandatory yet provides players a difficult and puzzling terrain to explore and loot at any given point in the game.
4048  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: New Xenoblade? on: January 23, 2013, 01:16:03 PM
I think I dropped a Deus :p in my pants when I saw this. I think the fact that there was an ESRB tag and English production listings means its definitely coming here. I love XSEED but I'd like to see Nintendo publish it here, simple because we will see it sooner and it won't be such a PIA to find in stores. They did the UK localizations for TLS and XB, so they obviously have the experience. Either way, this alone makes the Wii U worth the price of admission.

I was too busy dropping a Deus in my pants over the SMTXFE crossover (didn't help that I had already had to restrain myself over WWHD) when I saw this.

Also NoA did publish Xenoblade 1. They just distributed to Gamestop and online only because they thought the rest of the major gaming territories were full of it and that US gamers didn't possess the attention span to sit through even one of Fi's lifeless, stating-the-obvious rants. Although XSeeD did end up publishing The Last Story and now Pandora's Tower and hopefully they'll publish this one too.

Edit: Also, was it me, or did the guy at the end of the (not?) Xenoblade 2 trailer look a heck of a lot like Shulk?
4049  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem on: January 23, 2013, 01:04:24 PM
I hope that you will be able to eat the Fire Emblem people to absorb their powers.  This has already had a proof of concept with Kirby in Smash Bros.

Serph devours Marth!

Serph becomes FABULOUS!

Nevermind that, what kind of eugenic shenanigans will I need to pull to breed the Immune Phys skill onto as many demonlings as possible?

But seriously, if this turns out to be yet another useless, phoned in, bare naked, cash grabing, GREE/iOS, card game, I swear to god, I don't care if I have to drive my Chevy to the levy, that'll be the day the gaming died to me. I won't even have enough faith left in me to believe in Xenoblade 2(?) after watching two of the top Japanese game developers sell out like that.
4050  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: New Xenoblade? on: January 23, 2013, 10:21:27 AM
That was fast.

Also nice to see the trailer in not stutter-o-vision.

Although it does look a bit too Monster Hunter-ish for my tastes. But at least we finally have giant robots to pilot, and it just ain't no Xeno game without at least someone driving a mecha.
