    Xenoblade Chronicles

    Xenoblade Chronicles is a Jrpg for the Wii created by Monolith Soft and maybe one of the best Jrpgs of this generation
    I bought a Wii for Xenoblade and I remember that the first time I stood in Gaur Plains I was shocked with how huge the open areas are,since then Xenoblade has become one of my favorite games
    So have you tried Xenoblade and what do you think about this game?​

    Excellent game, if a bit overrated. I would have liked more character interactions (those heart-to-heart scenes were a chore to get) and a shorter plot. But everything else is great. The art is fantastic. The music too. The british VA is remarkable (seriously, Alvin has the best voices in the game). And the plot is great too.

    The daytime music for Gaur Plain is fantastic. I found a 30 minute loop of it on youtube once and used it for my workout routine.


    Also, I felt that both the future-seeing mechanic and the ability to change time to whatever you want right from the beginning of the game was a fantastic idea. I still haven't even finished one playthrough (had to give it back), but when I move my new roommate and I are picking up a Wii U and this game.

    The Wii got some great JRPGs I want to desperately play, but unless I can pick up a console and the game for 50 but under 100, i'm gonna bark at it at the end of my leash.

    This game looks ridiculous on a Wii U and output in HD. Emulator would do wonders too, I imagine.

    I personally played it on an emulator, using Dolphin there is an HD texture pack for it. Configure Dolphin adjust all the video/audio settings and looks pretty awesome.

    As much as I love Xenogears (and Xenosaga, though to a much lesser extent), I'm kinda ashamed to admit that I haven't played Xenoblade yet. I was holding out for a price drop then the game fell off the face of the earth. I'll get it eventually. I need to dust off my Wii anyway.

    It looked much better on the Wii U, yesh. The character models still aren't the best, but the environments looked FANTASTIC. I enjoyed the battle system well enough, although I almost never switched from the main character because of reasons.

    What issues you having? If you got a beefy enough computer its super simple to setup and get working nowadays.

    The price for Xenoblade - why is it so high? I saw the game listed for fewer than 50 at GameStop last year, and now it's, well, a lot more.

    I've just never been able to get it to work with any game. I can provide some computer specs if need be, but my general problem is that it crashes out a lot and I can't usually find coherent instructions on how to set up for specific games. Half the time it seems like they assume you know quite a lot more about Dolphin than the average person would know going into it.

    My Xenoblade file wouldn't even play (while I had it, got rid of it a while back out of frustration), Crystal Chronicles for the gamecube had awful sound cutouts and major graphical errors, Tales of Symphonia had a constant high-itched whine and stuttered voices/sounds, and BOTH Baten Kaitos games caused my computer to crash upon boot-up (I tried four or five versions of those last two).
