Not every article on that day is a goof.............

and if it is, then I got fooled. But until I see proof that he says IT IS NOT related, then can we agree its at least debatable?.

The game's been out for almost two years in Japan, and several months in Europe, and I've imported and played through it. If you don't mind spoiling yourself then hit the Xenoblade wikia or TVtropes and go crazy, and if you don't want to spoil yourself then keep quiet until the game is out in North America.

Its debatable. And thats the last I want to talk about that.


Monolith has a new rpg project they are working on and its either "xeno" related or baten
Wait, you bring a goof article as documented proof to a debate, and then decide to cut your losses and end the conversation? Wow....

Anyways, something I didn't look at in here, but are you stuck using shitty motion controls ala every fucking terrible wii game ever? Gotta say, if so, will not be running to play this as fast as I thought. Better yet, can you use a gamecube controller to play?

We dont know it is a goof article, all I said is that's what i remember reading ( maybe I did get fooled, who knows). I never read anything definitive that said they were or were not related.   Unless you think anything written on that day is a goof? I just don't feel like arguing about it ( I regret bringing it up).

On topic:

The controls on this game are fine. And Ive already put about 50 hours into it.

Ive always enjoyed ff 12, and this is how I imagine a sequel to that game would be like.


Ive had it imported for some time and I can say its up there in my top 100.

Doesn't really answer my question though. Motion controls are obnoxious and a waste. I work enough, I don't want my video games giving me fucking tennis elbow after spending 2-5 hours in a small space running cable through fiberglass insulation and exposed nails. My dislike for the wii is saved for a different topic, but my question stands on if a gamecube controller is useable as a play method or if you're stuck doing silly wave motions in the air to do a super move when pressing X would have sufficed.

The game doesn't use motion even if you DO use the Wii Remote and Nunchuk, and the GC isn't supported nor would it honestly be a good idea, all four shoulder buttons and the Select button are used so they would've needed to make a third control scheme to accommodate it, not to mention that if you hate that little, somewhat out of the way D-Pad on the GC controller you'd be stuck with it for Arts selection. Some like the Wii Remote + Nunchuk setup best, but if you'd still prefer a standard controller then just get a Classic Controller Pro for this.

Okay glad you cleared that up. Glad I bought my sister that classic controller for her wii...that I bought her as well.

Also, I just read that article. Really, you bought that article as legit. Chu chu breeding and arena? Cmon, if you played a xeno game you can't be that gullible.

I did play the game, and I have to admit I got some similar feelings and I have theories of my own

I agree. It should have been plainly obvious that the article was false.

I tried, but I think I ended up short 4.

These were the outstanding ones:

Two required 10 rare collectables that nobody trades in the two different late game areas (after several hours, only had 3 of each so gave up on that)

Didn't do a rare monster in Satorl Marsh because it NEVER got damn foggy enough after spinning the clock for an hour.

Ditto for another on a hot day in Makna.

I think I got the rest - I checked a FAQ and couldn't see any I missed starting.
