In 27 Days, Earth is no more.
Who else is pumped for this game?
oh god cant stop thinking about it
just bought the last prima guide in uk
cant wait to just get in that town meet some people and hunt some monsters
Is it worth us posting our ninty ids so we can meet up?
Would love some people to coop with
The worst thing they did was release it just days after fallout 4
Theyre really similar games
No one is gona have the 100s of hours required to dump into both
mostly cause there was comfy thread just 3 hours ago.
>MMO wannabe bullshit
so you never played Chronicles and you are just here to shitpost?
ok then, this thread will be shit cause of you.
Don't try to do every single quest. Just grab quests whenever you see them & then go explore and continue with the game & you'll complete them just by doing that. If you try do every single quests, you'll get burnt out.
how you like it.
if you emulate - there is HD texture pack avaiable, but not everyone likes it cause it fucks with face proportions.
if you pirate it on Wii - you need not regular AV connection (either component or HDMI via Wii U) and widescreen TV to be able to enjoy it.
Grindy only if you plan on 100% the game.
Emulate is good because you can download high res gear (since every piece of gear looks different). There's tons of quests all around and just grab everything you see and if you can complete it great not don't go out of your way. If you do that you will be fine to never have to grind.
Well I actually did this because I loved doing them, but i'd rather just say to not worry about doing all of them to people who are playing it for the first time in case they get burnt out. I want them to like the game. Of course if they're OK with doing as many as possible then fair enough.
well that's reasonable response actually.
>How should I play it?
Emulate it. The game looks fucking wonderful in Dolphin with the HD Textures Pack. I would only buy the Wii version if you want to support the devs, but don't even think about getting the New 3DS port.
>Is it grindy
No, esspecially when you planning of doing tons of sidequests that makes you overpowered. I wouldn't recommend making your self overpowered either considering it takes every bit of strategy in the game and throw it out the window.
>What do I need to know going in
Don't do every sidequest like Chaggaconroy did. Most of the sidequests are boring fetch quests and honestly my only problem with the game. Just do the sidequests that give you good items. Doing all of them would get you burnt out of Xenoblade and make you not want to touch the game for months like I did.
>The game looks fucking wonderful in Dolphin with the HD Textures Pack.
faces are shit tho
nah, it's way more "horizontal" experience. Buy it only if you liked doing side stuff in Chronicles.
I canceled my pre-order yesterday. Bad translation, censorship and no dual audio are too much for me to swallow. Why do I, as a German, have to suffer from American prudes? A couple of decades ago major party tried to legalize child sex and now I can't look at a 13 years old in bikini? Fuck you Nintendo, alright.
My assumption that they needed to redraw faces for HD texture. and instead of sticking to proportions and keep it same, they used some shitty online tutorial "how to draw anime eyes" and copied it.
or something like that.
But why bother replacing the face textures in the first place?
to make it "HD"
cause we all know. if you make something crisp - it'll be better.
and that's why HD texture pack for Xenoblade sucks balls.
>if we make everything brighter it'll be better, right guys?
they had to downgrade the resolution, im certain the sound capabilities of the 3ds are weaker, the cart probably holds less data than the dual layer wii disc, and was only playable on the new 3ds. Sucks that they removed japanese audio, but the english audio was great. now stow it.
it is just right amount of hugeness
don't worry, it won't feel empty
They realized they are good at vistas and people like them so they capitalized on it
especially considering awesome animations.
didn't they start recruiting for both studios recently
I just realised that Earth's spaceship is FUCKIN HUGE
How long is chronicles if you try to finish it quickly? I feel like playing a game with adventure & exploration, but i'm afraid that i might not be able to finish this one before X launches.
I hope this game is good.
This is my entry point into the Xenoblade Chronicles series, although I've seen someone play Xenoblade Chronicles before, so I'm familiar with the story and characters of the previous game. The "Dolls" or Transformers/Gundam in my eyes is what I'm really looking forward to, but I did think XBC looked fun, and it was interesting to watch, and Hiroyuki Sawano has made music I really love in the past, so here's to hoping this game is a fun experience.
Yeah, there are few weapons to equip instead hand swords to punch enemies. Not too flashy tho, at least as far I found only 1 or 2 types of those, maybe there is more.
you also can ram into enemies with your shoulder weapon and attack them with very huge 2 handed sword or lance (they so huge took 2 slots on your mech). With full animation getting it out attacking and installing it back.
>yfw miiverse allowed only shitty 800x420 screens

This thread had me reminiscing when this game was first revealed and people looked like they were looking forward to it.
All the controversy this year just soured everything, and am not sure if that is mainly why I lost interest.
>Tfw I actually swam around to fill out the whole map
>I didn't realize finding all the major locations automatically completes the map until I swam into that cave in the far corner, since that was the last place I checked
Skell is still the stupidest name for a mech that I've ever heard. They could've called them:
And they went with fucking Skell. Every single faggot who worked on this game's localisation should be fired.
each doll has 4 preset parts of it you can color + lights + visor.
You use HUE, Brightness, Saturation sliders - so literally can get any color you want.
No decals/sticker or patterns.
Can't color any equipment. Can't change geometry of doll aside of attaching weapons (each shown on a model and used in battle animations).
You'll find various torso/head/legs/arms parts but they don't change anything visually.
So it's just primary color, secondary color, tron lines, and visor? That's a little disappointing, but I don't think I expected much more. Can parts be colored individually? I remember seeing a screenshot of one done up like a police mech with red on one shoulder and blue on another.
more like primary color, three secondary colors and tron gloving lines and visor.
No, you can't I guess you've seen police doll from DLC (which are included in base west release)
and forgot to mention, you can also choose either glossy or matte paint but for whole doll
I don't know but the hatchet is a weapon, every weapon you equip is a skill to use and they are visible on the models
I fucking hate this courtesy period bullshit you guys keep stipulating. Not everyone can magically play the game. Especially not Americunts.
>Wii copies are exclusive to Gamestop
>eBay copies are scalped to shit
>emulating it is not easy for toasters, would need a good bit of RAM and a strong CPU to get the job done
>the 3DS version is only on the New 3DS, which buying it and XBC3D would cost ~$225 at LEAST
If the game was readily available then maybe you'd have a point.
>only person I wanted to co-op with is pretty much gone from my life
>If the game was readily available then maybe you'd have a point.
What is emulation
And if you don't want to be spoiled don't look at fucking threads for the game or the sequel you moron
you had 5 years to
>check ebay/amazon regulary
>upgrade your pc
>hack you wii/vwii
>buy a n3ds
5 fucking years. that's like complaining about aeris death because you can't find PS1s anymore
I'm not even talking about /v/ threads. Did you see PxZ2? They have Mechon Fiora as the leading Xeno rep.
>What is emulation
>>emulating it is not easy for toasters, would need a good bit of RAM and a strong CPU to get the job done
Can you read?
This is how I feel, I was waiting for this game to buy a Wii U, not the only game I would buy but it was the big one, need at least 3 games on a system to buy it. Unfortunately the censorship is bullshit.
Welp. Time to clear out some space on my Wii U.
It only has a few thousand MB left because mostly digital games.
Hopefully buying a retail physical copy of this game will be fine without issues.
I'm at the point where it's a stupid name but I can live with it. I might be a bit more annoyed once I start to hear characters start to say it but until than I just go "fuck it whatever"
you just know shit about videogames and mecha
stay low down, fag, so you won't be laughing stock
>tfw i gotta finish DKCTF so i can make some space, but the autist in me keeps telling me to 100% the game
>Stream edge and Backslash are skills are returning for this game
MONADO BOY IS BACK BABY!!
More proof that its probably just Lyn that was censored.
I'm not even sure if lyn actually was censored because she has different textures under the bikini depending on what she wears
so the base model change theory doesn't apply anymore
Well, those are the classes which they changed from English stuff to equivalent English stuff worded differently for no reason.
So Galaxy Knight became Galactic Knight. Star Crusader became Astral Crusader.
>Galaxy Knight became Galactic Knight
>Star Crusader became Astral Crusader
No. I'm not okay with this. At all.
Shield Trooper-Bastion Warrior
Blast Fencer-Galactic Knight
What were the jap names for these?
If something as minor as that bothers you, I don't want to know what you think of major changes.
It's already possible, but highly unstable. Stable Wii U emulation won't be possible for a long time.
>I can't imagine it being that much more complex than the Wii
The only reason we got Wii emulation so fast was because it was literally the same hardware as the Gamecube. And it still has issues now.
That's exactly why. Nintendo emulation is always tricky because, especially in recent years, they have a lot of weird gimmicks and unique stuff that just doesn't play nice on other platforms. Even Wii emulation is touch and go because you have to account for the motion controls.
>The game is readily available from many different sources, one even being completely free
I think the problem lies with you, I have a first generation i5 with 8GB RAM and emulated the game perfectly.
You really shouldn't blame everybody else because you're too lazy to upgrade your PC or get a job.
>tfw I still have to complete Xenoblade Chronicles at a rate of less than 30 minutes of paying per week
>tfw I'm at
Bionis Chest 2nd visitand getting my shit kicked bad
I am so not making it.
Post more webms, I need the hype.
How stupid do you have to be to derive that from the post? The fact is none of the WiiU games are 100% worth owning nor are they reasons to buy a WiiU. The
only affirm that point more
The game is 22GB, I'd definitely go for physical if you don't have an external HDD connected up to it.
Although physical copies have actually sold out in a lot of places, at least in Australia.
>implying anyone with a xbone or ps4 owns a Wii U
Most Wii U owners either have only the Wii U as their primary console with previous gens as secondary or have pc.
I, for example have a Wii u,ps3 and GameCube as my main 3
The fight is designed for you to be controlling Melia, which you should have been doing anyway if she was ever in your party, since her AI is dumber than Shulk's about using her abilities. Make sure to heal whenever you have the opportunity and hit the fucker as hard as you can whenever you can. I recommend having Reyn and Riki as your wingmen, but that's just me.
Are you illiterate? Where does it say that? Bayonetta 2 is not a system seller considering it was dead in the water immediately, and was moved on from immediately. The mark of a system seller is one of constant discussion and remembrace, along with hype. People still talk about Super Mario 64, THAT was a system seller for the 64.
You were heavily implyimg it.
Also there was a lot of discussion and asspain that bayonetta 2 brought. So dont go around saying that the hype died since it lasted for quite a while.
>tries to defend Bayonetta 2 as a system seller
>only defends it as a "good game" and not one that needs to be played
>tries to essentialize through greentext to be a smug faggot
>changed the name to astral crusader
Fuck this shit.
All I wanted, was to be a star crusader
I am already using Melia...
Depends on whether you'll seriously attempt to do EVERYTHING in Xenoblade X considering it's potential playtime. You should really look through the library of past, present and future titles to decide whether it'll be worth a purchase really.
I can't believe you guys, all you did was posting about that retarded loli girl with the dumbass face, this is the first time I see a pic of this beauty
This one is actually has up to 32 player multiplayer where you all attempt to do some overarching quests involving killing a bunch of a certain species of monsters or collecting items or you can have four players travel around together and fight shit. Sort of like Monster Hunter.
The atmosphere, music and English voice acting were what made XC a stellar game. The combat was ass, and I have no idea how anyone thought it was inventive or worth toying with, especially when you max everything eventually.
Buying the Japanese version.
Bought the Prima guide.
Waiting for a mod to remove region lock.
If you're enough of a kek to buy the censored version, you deserve Nintendo's bullshit.
What's that prima guide?
Also is there by any chance someone working on an accurate fan translation?
I have the feeling NOA will not shy away from changing the story.
Excuse me for wanting something to stay true to the source material and voting with my wallet.
Don't come crying to me when Nintendo continues to shit on their fanbase and release worse and worse shit cause you sat there and tolerated their bullshit with a smile.
Right now faggots here literally arguing that term "skell" which was made up by some faggot who probably only seen transformers by michael bay at best, is better term than "doll" which was used thru decades for various mecha media in Japan by a lot of respectful creators alongside every other similar term.
Let just sink that in.
>ballchinian bird right at the start
Yes, it's a bad translation, it's been a problem with JRPGs for years. That's not going to stop me from playing the game for the gameplay.
If you think NoA's translations are bad, for your own sanity never touch the Wild Arms series. It'll give you a stroke.
I'm not holding my breath for a fan translation, and I do wanna give the devs my money for what overall seems like an awesome game. I just don't want any of it to go to people who ignore their core audience and think it's fine to impose their values on others.
I was already rused with Fatal Frame.
The Prima Guide should be fine for both helping me through the missions and explaining the story.
>hurr we got skell from exoskeleton because giant piloted mechs are exoskeleton durr
Thank you Mr. Skelltal!
Gonna make mine to resemble this glorious bastard as much as possible
I want this game so bad but I'm low on cash and don't own a WiiU
not especially growing up. Anyone who has at least smallest interest in anything mecha related will call bullshit on "skells" instantly.
Heck, my roommate watched only 3 Gundam shows (0079-ZZ), Votoms, Macross and that's about it, just recently basically, most of that aside of Z-ZZ right before game announcement. And he still thinks that "skells" is damn stupid term to give.
I see this fucking loser in every XenoX thread, always shitting on people who dont like Skell. he never has any arguments, just calls people autistic if they dont like the changes. You should kill yourself and go rot in a ditch and stop shitting up our threads. I doubt you even played OG Xenoblade, fucking scrub.
>buying a second WiiU
Reading comprehension isn't your strong point is it?
I said I was gonna mod my console to remove the lock
The WiiU has been hacked already. You can load WiiU games from hard drive and ignore the lock, and soon you'll see an exploit to install homebrew and forego the lock altogether.
Enjoy Xenoblade 4kids edition.
You're basically telling NoA you support their decisions. So they'll keep fucking people over in the future.
Personally, I don't care. I'm never buying another Nintendo product after the WiiU. But you'll be the one to bear the consequences of your ignorance. Enjoy.
Have you never played WoW? Do you not know that a good player and a bad player can be detected from a mile away?
Why do you say that hotkey combat is somehow "just spam da buttonz lol"?
You'll be playing politically correct and family friendly localized garbage with no soul, on disc DLC, and amiibo bullshit. Plus you'll never get the games you want, just Mario and Zelda. Because other games don't sell, because NoA is too incompetent to properly advertise them and then butcher the localization.
I'm so glad I'm done with gaming.
Oh no, this game no longer has a half-naked underage girl and the robots are called something different, it is now completely unplayable trash because those are literally the only things that matter.
I would never talk shit about best girl man
so defending the game makes me a treehouse shill or marketer? Sorry for having an opinion
you don't defend game.
you defend shitty localization changes nobody from core fan audience of this game likes.
Not jRPG fans, not mecha fans.
This change is literally making game worse in every single respect.
>"skell" which was made up by some faggot who probably only seen transformers by michael bay at best
and you think that's a valid point? I don't why I keep falling for this bait everytime. Might as well wait till the game launches and hope the threads get better.
>removing religious symbolism mitigating the story
>Lyn's proportions were changed
>lots of names were changed, like BLADE.
>VA is done by amateurs and there is no Dual Audio
Sorry for wanting a better product. Honestly, a simple subtitles track and chaging of the menus text would have sufficed. Instead the SJWs got their hands on it.
Do you enjoy eating shit?
Well the only people who will buy this game are weebs. NoA has made that quite fucking sure due to their lack of advertising. the only people who know about it are weebs on the internet.
And since these changes pissed a lot of people off, that's already some numbers lost from their potential sales. Since they aren't advertising it they should be doing everything to get sales.
These changes literally did nothing to increase sales and probably only decreased them.
But it is.
The symbolism being gone undermines the story.
Tell me, if you remove the religious symbolism from the Matrix, does it undermine the story? It's not affecting the core plot now....
And it does undermine the gameplay, having the capacity to dress characters in skimpy outfits, both male and female, is part of the experience.
this is the weirdest thing. Why would NoA change all that shit and then do fuck all to advertise XCX? As it is, the only thing these changes have accomplished is to piss off a good amount of people who were otherwise hyped.
>removing religious symbolism mitigating the story
Do you have a full list of these supposed changes and how they have radically affected and altered the overall story? Do you have access to an early copy of the game?
>Lyn's proportions were changed
Yeah I didn't like the look of that photo either, but I didn't notice the model looking any different in the actual video footage I've seen so far.
>lots of names were changed, like BLADE
Some of the names were changed yes, but BLADE had a pretty engrish translation to begin with. I can only hope that the localised name still works into the story
>VA is done by amateurs and there is no Dual Audio
The VA aren't amateurs, every single one we've heard has years of experience. Elma is voiced by Tara Platt eg. Mitsuru from Persona, Lin is voiced by the woman who did Asuna in the dub of Sword Art Online and the MC has several voices to choose from, both American AND British VA's from the original Xenoblade.
Having no dual audio sucks, it definitely wouldn't have fit on the 22GB disc, but DLC should have been an option at least.
okay so you haven't read the entire plot.
You do realize that Doll has symbolism purposes beyond just the intro stories?
Dont even bother wasting your time with a response, its clear to me that you dont have the first fucking clue what you're talking about.
Glad to know you're so much of an anti-weeaboo that you're willing to defend the butchering of a script and story just because "MUH NOA, MUH GLORIOUS WESTERN VALUES, JAPS ARE NEVER RIGHT MUH GLORIOUS MURRICA ALWAYS MAKES THE RIGHT CHANGES"
and you don't think some of the core audience are ok with it and are not mindless and can form an opinion?
>having the capacity to dress characters in skimpy outfits, both male and female, is part of the experience.
I don't see it.
Because they never wanted to work on niche Japanese titles that take effort to localize in the first place. They went out of their way to ruin it because it will never sell as good as Mario anyway, and doing this ensures it does even worse, thus, next time people clamor for a petition to localize a Japanese game, like Rainfall, they can just point to XCX and blame the poor sales.
That fat fuck that got fired and cried about it literally got fired for spilling the beans on NoAs policy in regard to localizations, if it won't sell or takes too much work, they won't bother.
Enjoy your memes.
>and you don't think some of the core audience are ok with it and are not mindless and can form an opinion?
you already proved that you are not a part of that core audience and just here to get some (you)s by defending shit changes while knowing jack shit about what you talking.
>without a good reason
you keep saying that, but you haven't played the game.
There's a twist that gives Dolls some important symbolism to the story.
Also how the fuck does the setting of Turn A make it any better? XCX's setting is fine for it.
>Having no dual audio sucks, it definitely wouldn't have fit on the 22GB disc, but DLC should have been an option at least.
Speaking of DLC how did they fit that on the disc if there is no space
If no one buys it, it will be because of the stupid 8 month delay. Hype dies fast when a game comes out somewhere else and everyone else has to sit around for almost a year to get. Especially since Nintendo actually put brought some attention to the game with directs only to have it completely drop off when the game released in Japan.
Ive been laughing so hard at all the anti-weebs who are crying about "ONLY WEEBS CARE ABOUT THE CHANGES HURR DURR"
Weebs are the only fucking people who will be buying this game at all. Like others have said, NoA made damn fucking sure of that when they flat out refused to advertise the game. The only people who even know about this game are weebs. If you're a WRPG fag and you're going to play this game, you're in the minority, get the fuck over it.
Bitching about weebs in a fucking JRPG's fanbase is utterly stupid, I cant imagine how much cognitive dissonance it takes to pull that off unironically.
I'm guessing a couple of extra models, dialogue and quests for four characters is probably still a fair bit smaller than having Japanese audio for every character and line of dialogue in an incredibly long JRPG.
shitposting is yelling CENSORSHIP
stating a fact that localization quality is bad because none of changes makes sense and overall are great disservice to original work and core fans - it's an established fact.
You are just an outsider who couldn't accept the fact that someone who knows mecha genre better can be actually right than your backed by nothing opinion.
Yep, those are squad missions, you get put in a squad of about 20-30 other players and you all have a common list of goals like killing specific monsters or collecting specific items, that you each can do in your own game. You can also share info with your squad like monster locations and whatnot. When enough squad missions are complete, you can pair up and do online co-op missions with members of your squad. You'll also sometime see NPCs based on your squadmate's MCs that you can recruit as temporary party members in the main game.
nobody is denying that the localizations have been horrible for jrpgs for years
that doesn't change the fact that every thread since fatal frame has been clogged up by with this shit
people are sick of hearing the same shit over and over again
humanity in turn A was primitive so them calling the robot a doll made sense but the people in the new xenoblade are much more advance and calling them dolls because they slightly resemble humanity is ridicules
Now that FF sold under par and this will most likely too. FE will sell significantly less than awakening even though it will have 3 games. They'll come to the conclusion that the west doesn't want niche games anymore. The fact is they don't want them when you gut them and jam em' full of super hilarious memes.
I follow a shit load of Nintendo social media
How come not a SINGLE ONE linked the FUCKING preview here? Fuck I hate how obtuse this fucking company is at times.
>Hurr we're giving information directly to you!
>Last 6 months surprise information has been popping up in the weirdest of places where I find out on /v/ at the weekend
so those who are unhappy with changes should just be a nice lads and zip their mouth? If you don't want to read such discussion, you can always close the tab.
you also instantly make a 180 turn and calling localizations horrible when you defended them few posts ago. Who is shitposting exactly?
Can't you be consistent?
Was Fatal Frame butchered? Or was everything besides the costumes (that were replaced with the Zero Suit and Zelda costumes) still 100% intact and absolutely fine and you're just shitposting as usual?
>humanity in turn A was primitive
so is XCX, are you fucking stupid? Its literally about forging a new path on a new planet.
oh yeah you are fucking stupid, sorry for asking.
Don't bother arguing with anyone who thinks doll is an important term when anyone knows anything about the game story would know it's not even applied to what an English speaker would consider the appropriate objects.
>Now that FF sold under par and this will most likely too
Fatal Frame? It's already the biggest selling Project Zero in Japan, and the LE in Europe sold out. There's no indication of its sales at all.
the bikinis played a role in the story and character development. They appeared in a flashback and one of the character's goes through a stage where she feels like she's just meat for men to gawk at. its part of her character development.
>Theyll come to the conclusion that they are niche games
Thats because they are niche games anon
They arent meant to sell a lot over here
But they are expected to make a profit
Which they all have so far
Its seriously sad that people cry about weeaboo boogeymen in a fucking JRPG. Truly pathetic. Its like they come into a space, actively insult the fanbase, and then expect to be welcomed.
and Some of the changes aren't as bad as you think. People praise NoE with their translation of XC but I don't hear people complain about the changes. Like from Black face to Metal face or certain name changes for the characters. Where was the outrage for that?
I for one am furious that non-Japanese were barred from directly combating industrially sanctioned racist media tradition instantiated as a giant robot.
THAT explains why the camera controls are so unresponsive at times.
What the flying fuck? Why is that even necessary? Like, holy fucking shit, now I gotta wrestle with the camera and struggle keeping track of ghosts because some SJW twat was afraid I would lool up a fictional 19 yo's skirt? Fuck that shit.
Name changes aren't bad if they dont sound stupid. The changes in XC didn't sound stupid. Skell and Builders of the Legacy After the Destruction of Earth both sound pants on head retarded. And that will probably cause problems in X's sequels because the terms aren't consistent with JP version, even if those terms aren't particularly important in this game.
I would've been fine with sensible name changes. For example >>315634021 lists a bunch of terms for the mechs that are infinitely superior to what Treehouse picked.
Localisations aren't bad if they dont pick stupid terms and names, but this one picked the stupidest fucking names they possibly could have.
some aren't, I don't care for quite a few like class or skill changes. But skell rubs it in for quite a few mecha fans.
It's like telling you "you are dumb. you won't understand. we know what you want better than you. you'll dislike this term and will be shy to discuss game with your friends.
you are idiot and we care for you."
do you like that treatment? I don't
