28 MORE DAYS!
Will you be a boy or a girl?
What Doll/Skell will you use?
Why is Black Tar the best theme in the game?
Probably a girl but I wanna know if it affects flirting/any kind of deeper personal link.
I have no idea, will figure it out as I go.
I'm playing Xenogears at the moment because I never did. I hope I have enough time to finish this and Xenosaga before December 4th.
By the way, if you beat RPS man, make a save after that to re-use if you ever wanna restart the game. Winning Rock Paper Scissors five times in a row isn't great odds. I did it though.
Got my special edition of X pre-ordered. It was the last one left in Canada Bestbuy's online order.
Will there ever be any Xeno figures that aren't insanely expensive?
I remember putting more than 20 hours in Xenoblade Chronicles, thoroughly enjoying my time on the Gaur plain, then that Pokemon character and magical girl got introduced in the forest near the waterfall and the hanging bridge and I played something else for three years, went back, game looked like shit on my new TV and had no interest in relearning the mechanics and going throught tons of trivial encounters.
All I remember is that the game kept throwing shit at you and that fucking tutorial lasted for days. I also couldn't decide which 3 characters to use and consider the system where you have to put characters out of action to be inherently flawed.
I've been playing Xenoblade Chronicles in the mean time and just got
Fiora back. How long do I have to the end?
I've been checking some stuff in the link.I think I want a figurine now
>Will you be a boy or a girl?
Girl probably, but I'll check out the male features.
>What Doll/Skell will you use?
I have no idea, the only difference I've heard between them is cosmetic and their weight/speed/drift. Do they get different arts or can heavy ones hold more weapons? Is there any point in using the light mechs late into the game?
>Why is Black Tar the best theme in the game?
Honestly I only like the Black Tar after the 3 minute mark, luckily that's the doll battle theme.
I'm in the same boat, playing through XC on Wii for the first time.
It's seems as though the Skellies being able to fly/drive will take out some of the dull world traversal in XCX, but I hope to christ they fix the menus. Shit's downright archaic.
She's adorable. Shame about the bikinis but If they have shit stats like XBX, I will never use them
Have been ignoring threads and a lot of the survival videos. I want to be completely immersed and discover everything for myself.
Leaving thread now because that's a red flag to get spooked with spoilers
Dunno if I wanna buy it anymore.
Lack of Dual Audio, shitty localization censoring religious symbolism, and the removal of content via bikinis is just too much to merit a full purchase for me.
I'm gonna wait for it to release, and properly assess the damage to see if it's worth shelling out €60 for the western version, or if it's better to play the Japanese version with a subtitles patch.
It's stupid too, all NoA really had to do was put subtitles over the dialogue, which means we could have had the game shortly after the J release, but they went out of their way to butcher everything which means we not only get a worse exp as consumers, but also, we had to wait for it longer too.
>Lack of Dual Audio, shitty localization censoring religious symbolism, and the removal of content via bikinis is just too much to merit a full purchase for me.
are you autistic?
Sorry but I won't accept some random guy who took a screenshot of an already existing outfit as proof that lyn's model was changed.
Especially not after this shit yesterday, literally had the whole thread believing the game was censored because an NPC had a bra in the english version until one guy posted this.
>Sorry but I won't accept some random guy who took a screenshot of an already existing outfit as proof that lyn's model was changed.
>already existing outfit
if you can't see that on left and right are same one bikini equipment model, but Lyn model is different - I'd advocate you to purchase glasses or contact lens
The Japanese version went out of it's way to hire a top notch voice cast, the NoA version will probably be voiced by the same people they have voice over everything. Not to mention, with the original language I don't have to deal with the Treehouse's poor localization choices like: "Skell" or "Builders of our Legacy After the Destruction of Earth," as much.
The fact that you're so upset by the fact these legit concerns bother me speak miles.
Then it looks like the Japanese version it is.
I'll wait for a subtitles patch then. I actually wouldn't mind buying the Japanese disk if I could remove the region lock myself...
I have jp version, there is no shitty top outfit as on the left.
left top is combined out bikini equipment on the left and changed Lyn model which includes sports bra built into her base model
That makes sense in a lot of ways, minimum change and no cut content.
you are being way more optimistic here.
>I'll wait for a subtitles patch then.
you mean fanpatched game via hacked wii u? I don't think that will happen that soon, but I didn't kept with hacking scene news for years.
>original version sold like shit
>mechs are transformers
>story which somehow makes xenoblade seem deep (if you've played every xeno game you know this is quite a feat)
>graphics are worse than a ps2 game (look up xenosaga ep. 3)
>10 hours long (15 if you do everything)
So glad monolith is done after this debacle, they can't make a good game to save their life
Well, you can already mod tue WiiU and load games.
All you really have to do is take the text from the localized version, and patch it onto the Japanese version. Maybe even modify the changes made by NoA so it's more true for the original.
The only pity is that I can't do this without pirating, the ultimate exp would be to have it in disk for faster load times and such, but then again, Project M exists.
I don't mind waiting a couple years for a better exp, and enough people are pissed off by all this that it's bound to happen.
Hell, I have a solid enough grip on Japanese, and I'm moving there next year, I just struggle with reading it, however, the console is still locked.
>mechs are tranformers
This is bad because?
>story wich somehow makes xenoblade seem deep
The story is better than Xenoblade tho
>graphics are worse than a ps2 game
>thinks that xenosaga ep.3 looked good
>10 hours long
>Monolith already announced a sequel
These guys don't even try anymore
Still considering that undubbing is quite difficult task for quite a lot games and systems, it is really not known how much it'll take. Some games can get really glitchy after that (Hi God Eater) So I guess it depends on your patience with waiting for such patch.
I have JP release even tho I don't know Japanese. I think you'll be ok with JP version if I could play it without huge problems.
There is a lot of kanji, but doesn't seem like it is overloaded by it. Knowing even alphabets should help a lot I think.
fucking lost it
another round of censorship is upon us phams
Yeah, I know the Kanas, and a few Kanji, it's just been a while since I took Japanese learning seriously.
I bought the Prima Guide, and if the menus are easy to navigate it's not a problem.
I think I will just get the Japanese version then (Funny, cause I could have gotten it this Summer, I was in Tokyo, and I saw XCX on shelves in Akiba, I thought about buying it, but didn't cause I didn't think I would understand anything, now I kinda wish I had). Console is still region locked though, I'm just waiting for a way to do away with that to come along.
>I bought the Prima Guide, and if the menus are easy to navigate it's not a problem.
UI design is beautiful. I guarantee you, there won't be any problems with navigation.
Well it's not like game will go anywhere anyway. Take your time.
yeah... I've been wasting time in X threads for awhile now.
Yesterdays no dual audio news really crushed me. It pains me to see such good game being slowly killed by localization efforts.
Glad I was able to provide some useful info via my Engrish, anon.
Yep. Even after all that, I still want to play it while understanding skills, story stuff, etc.
And learning language to do so with JP release is pretty damn too long for impatient me.
X really is first game I care this much about, more like being obsessed with it. And such shitty localization finally pushes me into learning language so that won't happen again.
Not a first time, a lot of games I played when I was a teen had shitty localization to my native language, so I learned English.
Now it's time to learn JP it seems.
I probably not in all threads ( I still sleep and work and play games) , but I do visit them pretty often.
Yeah, I try not to think about how much money I spent on X via importing Wii U JP bundle. At least I try not to convert to my currency. Only shipping cost me another 100$.
I even considering ordering US version cause of neat artbook, but I guess I'll wait till something like Monado Archives to be published in JP. So settled on Yanase Takayuki Mechanic Design Works for now, even tho Dolls lineart take only 20-30 pages.
I been learning it few years back, but had to drop cause needing to work and pay rent. I still need that, but I think I can manage to fit at least hour a day to learn JP.
Both. Mostly cause it was translated via software without much checking. And sometimes adding very very bad jokes.
But it always was pretty bad in comparison to Englist writing.
The fear was real.
I've probably played my wii u for 20-30 hours since I got it almost a year ago.
I actually bought it when I saw the first XCX gameplay trailer.
Genuinely very nearly shitting myself when I saw 10 hours gameplay.
can't wait for it.
I'm seriously fucking pissed I have to give kike ass neo nintendo money and buy this shit ass console just for this one fucking game
They've already made it crystal clear they plan to sweep the Wii U under the rug around a year from now, and we all know its not gonna see shit worth a damn after that. HELL IT DOESNT SEE SHIT WORTH A DAMN RIGHT NOW
But have they thrown a price cut to bring it down to something reasonable given the total LACK of demand, say 200 bucks or less? Of course not, because these fucking nips are the ultimate kikes. Even a refurb is still 200 dollars. What the fuck nintendo. What, the FUCK. This console is doa and sales are abysmal, fucking drop the price already you cocksuckers
Yeah, shipping stuff here is a pain. Also currency exchange rate doubled during last year, while my pay isn't very much.
I recently tried to see how much it'll be to order 7 cheap gunpla 1000 yen each. (so 7000 yen)
Aaaand shipping would cost me 8500 yen. More expensive than stuff I buy.
Games are more less ok to ship, not LE editions, like 10$~ a game which increases only a bit if you add more. Like 15$ for 3 games. (cause like hell I will find those games like Gundam Reborn in local stores (whole 3 stores for 1.5 mil city) or online game stores of this country)
Artbooks bit more expensive, but still manageable. but anything either too big or too heavy - instantly costs a ton to ship. No matter from where, US, EU, Japan. Being in a middle of nowhere sucks balls. (not to mention that delivery can take a month.)
>/v/ suddenly caring about censorship
>fail to realize companies have done shit like what NoA did to XCX for decades, but hardly anyone ever complains
Let's get real for a minute, the only reason /v/ hates this game is because of Nintendo's track record this year with the Wii U and with the NX rumored to be coming around the corner. So of course any future Wii U game will get some hate for being on it instead of the NX. And even if Lin's bikini wasn't censored, /v/ still would've found something new to shitpost about, just like how you all made potato-chan a meme. If you REALLY cared about Nintendo censoring their games, then why is the original Xenoblade praised on here, even though NoE made some localization changes form the original version, and that game is beloved on here? It's fucking ridiculous how contrarian this board has become in the past few years. And i'm defending censorship, but I am callign bullshit on anyone thinking this and Fatal Frame V are the first nintendo games to be censored in the west
>tfw I deliver my Master thesis 1st December and can play X all December
My Wii U keeps crashing at times though. Mario Kart especially after the last update just freezes the entire thing. Just affects two or three games, so hopefully X doesn cause any issues because then I'll be fucking mad.
never had a problem with MK. but from my experience with X on JP Wii U I can say that it crashed only once when I was quitting on title screen (after saving) during 100 hours of gameplay.
Before 1.01 patch.
I only ever saw a single photo that didn't even show the equipment screen for both versions, just the character model. From what I could tell she could be wearing anything. If there is actually conclusive evidence I'd love to see it
This is the best game on Wii U. Typical Nintendo games just feel too samey & follow the same nauseating vibrant colours & 3 hit bosses. Idk, but most typical Nintendo games just feel like toys whereas XCX feels like a fucking Star Wars film.
well, I just obsessed over videogames and giant robots.
It's fun way to live. Why I should hoard money anyway if I have spare income? Buying an apartment costs like a leg anyway, and no way I'm doing that. Renting makes way more sense for now.
screw thinking about future, nothing goods coming out of it. I just wanna play videogames and working job I love.
geometry of bikini model is enough evidence for me.
Is there a compilation/video of all the options in the character creator?
whoa, nice one.
I really suck at making screens, never thought of making something like this which gives a feeling that there is huge grassland ahead
I can't pass on it, this is the one and only game I've been so hype for since back in the day when I bought Ocarina of time, gameboy color and zelda dx all on the same day
This is also the only game in I don't know how many years, where my hype did not die after I watched streams of it and actually saw it for what it actually was (as in, outside of advertising which is full of lies these days)
I loved Xenoblade on Wii and this game is everything that was awesome about that plus insanely awesome gameplay improvements.
I'm literally stuck buying a Wii U just for this game. Fucking NX better be backwards compatible cuz I need to be able to trade in this turd hardware. I'm not spending 200 bucks just for the sake of one game and not getting some of that money back
That's such a gorgeous shot. I usually just scour Miiverse; people make a lot of really nice screens of the game. It's so easy to take a good screen of this game because it looks amazing at every angle.
pretty much, yeah. Game is bloody gorgeous. and thank god for being able to turn off UI.
I initially uploaded mine on
Not a good way of doing things, but it's something.
