So about the Gamestop preorder artbook. Does that come inside the game case or does it come separately?
It comes separately and its an odd size. Its not the same size as a DVD case but the paper is pretty high quality.

I just checked the status of my order from the Nintendo store, and it says that it's backordered! What the hell? Hopefully, it doesn't take too long.

Freakin' nuts man.... That makes me mad.... I asked 101 times if pre-orderring got me any goodies... having already played through the European thus I felt no need to buy the game again unless there were some limited edition bonus.... NEVER was I informed of this  "art book"..... damnit.....
In this world is the destiny of mankind controlled by some transcedental entity or law? is it like the hand of god hovering above? Perhaps Man has no control even over his own will…

It really isn't that good of an artbook. Certainly not $50 worth. I would've preferred a mini-sountrack or something. I'd give you mine if it weren't for the fact that it goes surprisingly well with the other two artbooks I own.

Yeah the artbook is generic American fare. Small and not very thick. It's printed on excellent paper, though, and has some glossy bits that make it look kind of stylish.

I see that it goes for $30 on eBay though, so I might just sell it to recoup some of the costs of buying Xenoblade.

The more I see of this game the more I want to play the fuck out of it. I wish I had a Wii... I might just get a copy and either bank on getting a wii-u or borrow a wii from someone.

My game apparently shipped from the future.

I grabbed the game this afternoon and I've been playing for 5 hours now.  This one is a Godsend for us RPGFans.  I haven't been this into a JRPG in a very long time.  Everything is spot on so far.

You're in for a real treat, man. I actually found the game to continue to be spot on, all the way to the end. One of the few that doesn't falter into cheesy crap 2/3rds of the way through, at least IMO. But it has lots of huge twists and turns, never-the-less.

I'd even go as far as to say it's the first time at that much into an RPG... ever! I've spent 16 hours in two days and a half... For me, I think this is a record (I rarely play more than 1-2 hours a day usually). It's definitely one of the most enjoyable games I've played in my whole life! It's ridiculous to think that NoA originally wanted to keep us from playing this!

I'm about three hours into the game right now.  I have done basically nothing except wander around and do quests.  And it has been GLORIOUS.

Yeah, the game is really good when it comes to throwing out stuff to distract you. Combine this with some truly shocking open areas and huge amounts of exploration... yeah, you have one of the best JRPGs this gen, bar none.
