This comes out tomorrow, yeah?? :D

My nip--....mind is tingling!! :D

Friday apparently, unless they changed something due to it being Good Friday.

I preordered at a mall that ought be closed Friday.  So yay?  Doesn't matter... I doubt I'd play much.  Tis' exam season n' all.

Must be a Canada only thing, because it's still Friday here. Would've been more convenient for me though.

I pre-ordered mine from Nintendo online. I wonder when I'll actually get it? I won't really get into it until after I play through ME3, but I'd still like to pop it in and try it out. Plus, I have yet to order a new Wii, so I'll be dealing with a crappy a/v connection.

Yeah, it functions differently in a way where you're constantly involved, you can't let it "Auto-pilot" like you could in FFXII since positioning and selecting moves DOES matter.

Anyways, I don't really think that was necessarily for "wider appeal" so much as just making the game they wanted. It does seem like Nintendo gave them the freedom they were desperately trying to get for each of the prior games, plus this time gameplay was more of a focus than narrative (though arguably it's the best executed of their attempts... maybe BECAUSE of that realigned focus.)

Agree

Since you keep repeating this, I think its worth mentioning that this is original IP. Other than having "Xeno" in the title, which as far as I know wasn't even the original name for the game, these games have absolutely no ties to each other whatsoever. My guess is Xenoblade got the same treatems as "The Room" which supposedly had "Silent Hill" slapped on to it to sell more copies.

Correct, the original title was Monado. It was renamed Xenoblade 'in honor' of the series.

Well you might be right. but the person at the helm of this game has worked on all the previous Xeno titles.

But since you say this is entirely a different project. then alright.

I feel a little weird saying this, especially since I've been so critical of modern jRPGs with FFXIII at the top of the list, for being painfully linear. Xenoblade almost feels a little TOO BIG. I mean seriously, its gigantic, I spent over ten hours running around colony 9 and upon recently returning to beat the snot out of a lvl 17 unique that handed me my ass several levels and many hours before, I realised that there's not only a ton left to do, but also a load left unexplored. The next area is even BIGGER. Its both awesome and frustrating at the same time since I'm one of those "gotta do it all" kind of gamers.

I'm also really happy that Unique monsters have started to roam around instead of just sitting there and waiting for me come and get them. Makes it all that much more fun when one of those things just pops up from around the corner. Even had one join a fight today, it may have been a little inconvenient to have to high tail it out of there, but it gives the game just a little more spice.

Tried to pick this up today but no dice. And I don't mean I tried picking it up where Dice works. haha

The release date for Canada has officially been changed to tomorrow. I am looking forward to playing this all day Friday.

Should've just had this "Whenever in stores", because RIGHT before people may be traveling for Easter is a headache. At least it's just a few hour drive for me and not an airplane I need to catch or something.
