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.

Okay I'm sold. NoE deserves my money regardless of the quality of the game and whether I will enjoy it or not if only for the fact that they actually give a damn about games not called Mario or Zelda that aren't shitty mini game collections. Though this does make me hate NoA even more.

I love how the best armor I have for the female character is a bikini.

Shulk is growing on me, he's a good protagonist.

The music is definitely very good.

Satorl Marsh is a sight to behold at night. Really beautiful and with wonderful music.
Customization is deeper than I expected, there's a lot to tinker with.

I'm still near the beginning, but I think I ended up doing side quests for several hours. I love this game.

I could spend forever just doing the side quests, as there is a metric fuck-tonne of them. However, I must press on through the story for the review. Every person I see who has a quest makes me sad, as I can never fulfil that for them.

The side missions in the first 5 hours or so (I'm only 6 hours in) consisted of nothing more than hunts and fetch quests. They were fun, but only because the gameplay in general is fun.

Some more thoughts now that I'm 13 hours in:

The game keeps getting better and better. The story is getting more interesting and the new characters are also better than the previous ones. The game gets more beautiful with every new area, when I arrived at the waterfalls of Makna Forest I said WOW!
I also realized that the game becomes easier when I'm controlling
Code:
Sharla
, I can't trust the AI for support, when I take care of the healing battles become a lot easier. I still use Shulk to fight Mechon though so I can use the monado.
It's also a good idea to change characters once in a while to develop affinities between every party member.

I think it's like that for the whole game. I've been doing some of them but to be honest I rarely go out of my way to complete them. A lot of them just require you to kill monsters that you'll end up killing anyway so at least those are pretty easy.

Friends and I got this freakin game...  two of us are proceeding at the same rate, obsessive-compulsively doing all of the sidequests (AKA WOW style) while another one is like "You guys are only that far?  hahaha daaaaaamn."

The game provides much pause.  Much needed pause to play a lot of other games right now.  Reynado towards the beginning sealed the production value question for me...

I have to admit that I wasn't completely sold during the first few hours but now I'm so addicted that I have a really hard time stopping. Some areas are overwhelmingly huge, you might not want to tackle this if you don't have much time on your hands.

For anyone who has finished the game, how far would you say I am considering I just arrived at the

imperial city?
Halfway through?

I finish Deus Ex... and this game is mine.

But I gotta get my Wii modded first, and I have no idea how to do that.

So I played Xenoblade for 6 hours straight yesterday. To make it clear that I really like it; It's the best rpg on wii.

+ If you do not like like endeless walking, you can use fast-traveling as much as you want
+ abillities are used in the story and in battle (can't say more without spoiling), and use abillities well to survive!
+ Japanese voices are selectable
+ Don't like using healing potions outside battle? Your HP will regenerate fast!
+ Are you afraid the battle-system is too simple? Fear not, it keeps unlocking tutorials for new stuff all the time
+ The story is actually very interesting
+ When you finish a quest, no need to track down the quest-giver, you'll get the reward right away.
+ big open fields and caverns to explore (At times impressive scale)
+ tons of side-missions
+ If you die, you respawn nearby without any xp loss
+ Excellent art direction

- It's a blurry mess
- It has textures from last generation
- It has a lot of pop ups

To be fair, I'm playing it on a 60" plasma. But I really wish the game would've been a 360 / ps3 game. The wii is really struggling at times. However, graphics do not make or break a game. I woke up early to write this, and right after, I'll play for hours again!
