Played a bit more, there's definitely some very nice music to be heard. The affinity system is a nice touch. My only gripe so far is that during battles the hud takes up too much screen.

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?

Went to my local gamestop yesterday and the guy I know there said there is no date for release in the US for this and its a shame, The Wii always seems to find a way to shoot itself in the foot for me.. every game I want is a PITA to get for it. I still cant find a Rune Factory copy anywhere.

Certainly if it is announced for the US the first people to know will be your local Gamestop employees.

Was anyone else reminded of Pulse when arriving on the Gaur Plains? Jesus Christ that place is fucking huge!

I was reminded of old Final Fantasy music, with that synthetic bass... I don't know what it is about it, but I love it http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B-ImzCpHsP4

Reminded me of this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cJVHT3TUB-E&feature=related synth bass lines owned back in the day.

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.

I wish the main characters were more charismatic, like the ones in resonance of fate for example. I'm curious to find out more about the mechon and the monado though and the whole idea of the game's world being 2 huge titans connected by a sword is fucking brilliant. I really hope that the story delivers, the concept has huge potential.

Loving the game so far. My only complaint would be the quest and location markers look too similar.

hmm... the soundtrack is actually starting to grow on me.

Also, switching to Dolphin. With 3X the native resolution the game looks incredible.

Edit: It seems that the PAL version is locked @ 25 FPS by default. I changed the limit to 30 FPS and the game is much better this way.

Unfortunately we can't talk about that here. I wish I could share some pics with you guys.
