My brother's birthday is coming up and I don't know what to give him... I don't want to give him a game again (though Mass Effect, Fallout and a bunch of other stuff I got him were all well recieved). Maybe I'll just get him some socks and/or underwear...

If the "!" is there, that means so is the person. Some of them are in REALLY Akward places. One guy I was trying to find had the same colour clothes as the wall he was standing against and I just walked past him 50 times. An other was standing on a bridge above my head but I didn't even know there was a bridge up there.

Heh, that's probably my issue then!

Just stand still and rotate the camera.

Did you see those smaller mechon run towards where Fiora was after she got hit? I guess those dragged her body away.

Her return didn't come as a surprise though.
It's one of those plottwist we've seen in pretty much every Xeno-game.
Her mechon reminded me of Elly's omnigear...

Yes, for the next two month you will only talk about these three things:
-quest deadlines
-where to find cabbage
-the advantages of naked Dunban

I tried it and some items even lower the affinity if you give them to the wrong person.

Yep, but you can get some achievements (= free exp!) that way. Give Dunban something he hates, for instance.

I'm going to check that out now. It's funny because earlier today I was wondering why I couldn't see any of the heart to hearts I come across. I was actually thinking "what the hell am I doing wrong?" lol.

Everyone has their favourite gifts, so don't throw junk at people randomly. Sharla is fond of fruit, Shulk likes pretty much anything mechanical, Reyn wants mostly food, Melia likes flowers and dobercorgies, Riki prefers bugs and Dunban is fine with most things but doesn't have any clear favorites (as far as I know). Well, I guess you could give him water logs and plate snow. He kinda likes those for some reason.

Xenoblade is like a drug.

Coincidently, I just busted a nopon drugs dealer. Kind of. Some of these quests are rather unusual... But, I must do more! It's Shenmue Syndrome to the max and I don't know if it's a good or a bad thing...

Back from yet another animecon. It's kind of sad how the magic disappears at soon as you're on the bus/train home. I will miss having heated Tolstoj and My Little Pony discussions at the breakfast table. Oh and how there's a context for everything, but don't know what it is 90% of the time. Like a Naruto cosplayer kissing giant cardbox Ponyta. I'm sure it makes sense somehow. Also, for some reason three people agreed that I should cosplay Raven (yeah, the one from Tales of Vesperia) next year. Cons are weird, but I love them.

Speaking of the Gaur Plains, I was eating dinner with my brother when I suddenly heard that music. After nearly two weeks of playing Xenoblade 5+ hours a day, I thought nothing of it. Then I realised that I wasn't holding a controller, but a spoon. You can't play Xenoblade with a spoon Also, my brother doesn't have a Wii. A microsecond later I figured it out and a quick look at the TV confirmed it: Xenoblade commercial! It was like a minute long!

This can only mean one thing: hell has frozen over and the world is going to end tomorrow.

Most games are designed either around multiplayer or singleplayer. More often than not, the single/multiplayer mode that was added to make the game 'complete' feels tacked on. Besides, most gamers buy a game to play either single or multiplayer, and ignore the other half of the game. So I usually take the 'well, it's there, but who cares?' stance and don't let it have any effect on the grade.

Were this the plot of an RPG, your quest as the nameless hero would be to infect the villain with an STD that would make it painful to masturbate.

It would? I thought it would be the same as always: just go at him with a big giant sword until he changes his ways.

Yep, it's a Wii game. That's one of the reasons why you see people cursing Nintendo of America so much nowadays.

Last few modern rpg's i've played have been short, simple as that. Play through the direct story and Bam, over and out. I imagine Oblivion would be over in a couple of hours without sidequests,,

I guess, but doing quests and not just following the storyline is part of whole experience. It helps you appreciate the world that was build for you to explore. Not finding atleast some of the secret shrines/springs/holes in the ground and then getting nearly mauled by a L90 dinosaur/dragon/spider/troll/whatever seems like a waste to me.

So modern rpg's are really short huh?

I've clocked nearly 50 hours on Xenoblade so far and the ending is still far, far away.

Anyway, did some more sidequests and decided that Dunban can keep his clothes on (for now).

Another thing I hate is when a review basically tells that a game is bad because its different/inferior to its predecessor (Dragon Age 2 and Final Fantasy XIII come to mind), while games should be judged on his own merits.

That's one of my pet peeves actually. I can't stand it when a fellow reviewer bases a score on what he wants a game to be instead of what it is. Like stating the graphics a very good for a Wii game, then complaining they can't measure up to what you see on the PS3 and giving a low score for graphics. There also seem to be quite a lot of reviewers who want multiplayermodes with everything. No multiplayer = lower score. And, of course, the people who complain VIII isn't like VII or XII isn't like X and so on.

Got the game yesterday but my brand-new computer is refusing to write onto my SD card (for the Joystik mod). :(   I can't seem to locate a way to mod it without the SD card.

Might there be something wrong with the SD card? Have you tried formatting it?
