    Been crying for the past hour over Bowie. I knew it was going to happen eventually, but this is really really really hard for me to take.

    Xenoblade Chronicles X Spoilers (Unmarked so Beat the Game First)

    Oh, Karellen is a character from Childhood's End by Arthur C. Clarke (the author of the Space Odyssey series). It's not really a Xenogears reference aside from it being used before, though more loosely. Basically, he is an alien species called an Overlord who is very interested in the...

    Xenoblade Chronicles X Spoilers (Unmarked so Beat the Game First)

    If they want to go more story heavy for the next game, making it open world would probably be really difficult and expensive. Because of that, XBX had minimal cutscenes and the majority of them were characters standing around and talking (since they wanted to prioritise making an open world)...

    Xenoblade Chronicles X Spoilers (Unmarked so Beat the Game First)

    I don't really know how the English version handles it but there is Life (the Zohar-looking things) and there is Central Life (the really important one) and then the other salvaged things I believe are pieces of the White Whale; life pods, storage units etc etc. that were scattered after the...

    Xenoblade Chronicles X Spoilers (Unmarked so Beat the Game First)

    Well, I'm sure someone already has scans up, but there be spoilers all over the place in the book and you shouldn't look it over until after you finish the game. Here are some snaps I took that aren't spoilery in any way, though-- the sketches of Irina and Lao by Tanaka Honestly if their names...

    Xenoblade Chronicles X Spoilers (Unmarked so Beat the Game First)

    Qlu is Celica's race. I just grabbed it off the shelf but I think the easiest place to import would be Amazon Japan. You need to make an account separate from your regular Amazon account, but they ship anywhere.

    Xenoblade Chronicles X Spoilers (Unmarked so Beat the Game First)

    Mod note: Created a spoiler thread that won't have unmarked spoilers. If you don't like spoilers, leave the thread and come back until you beat the game. Kinda have to beat it anyways so that some of your questions early on in the game can be answered. -Squirrel The Xenoblade X Secret File...

    Xenoblade Chronicles X Announced

    I was only level 50 tops with level 30 skells so it was a pretty tense set of battles for me. Fun though. (The bottom third of the classes are the best ones. *cough*) I don't think there are any questions answered or conclusions reached during the post game content. A new "making of" artbook is...

    Xenoblade Chronicles X Announced

    Yeah I'm trying to hold off 100%ing my file so if/when a continuation is announced I'll have something to play to gear me up. What kind of characters did everyone make? I love the Mastermind (I think that's the name) class. I could get about 60,000+ damage to multiple enemies in an attack with...

    Hype of Final Fantasy 15 gone since FF7 Remake been Announced?

    Well, I feel like the only chance I have of fairly judging FFXV is to go on blackout, so I can't really be hyped over something I try to avoid. If I let myself get excited over something, I might hold a grudge when it gets removed *cough* oooor I end up unfairly judging that it will be bad or...

    Final Fantasy VII REMAKE - General News Thread

    ^the problem with that is, unless they make major changes to the story, the pacing would be all messed up. What happens in Junon that feels like closure and/or a lead in to make the player want to get the next chapter? Though yeah I wouldn't want disc 1 to be split into more than 3 parts if...

    Final Fantasy VII REMAKE - General News Thread

    I'm okay with it being split up but I have to wonder how they will divide it. I can predict the midgar part being its own installment, since it wraps up nicely and you don't go back for a long, long time once you do leave. After that, though, I'm not so sure. The next part where I really feel...

    Xenoblade Chronicles X Announced

    I finally got around to finishing the main story quests and I will be really disappointed if it doesn't continue somehow. Won't give any details but it suddenly gets really interesting and involved during the last chapter and ends on a massive cliffhanger... soooooo many questions... So far the...

    Last Movie You've Seen

    12 Monkeys was on TV last week. I had it marked on my calendar and everything. Most movies that make it to Japanese TV are either really bad (Stonados? It made Sharknado look like a masterpiece) or just the same old same old action/war movie crap. It was really refreshing to watch something I...

    How much importance do you give to Metacritic ?

    Reviews don't matter unless they are praising a game I like. Then I can go show them to friends to convince them to try the game too. "HAY GUYS! I'm not the only one who likes this so don't look at me like I'm crazy when I say it's awesome. My opinion is totally validated!" If a game I like...

    Why Nobuo Uematsu Must be Involved in FFVII Remake Music

    ^ I feel like synths are integral to the mood of VII so I actually wouldn't want the songs to go all orchestral. Not that the soundtrack should be techno remixed either but I wouldn't want Midgar sounding like chamber music. Synth instruments would actually be really appropriate in this case...

    More JP Devs wants to work on Home Consoles than mobile-CEDEC survey

    If FFVIIre actually makes it to PS4, and I'm still living in Japan, I will do my part and get one (since I also want persona 5 and a blu-ray player, hopefully more interesting games or old libraries will be available by then) but it will still be a few years until then, I think. It's too early...

    More JP Devs wants to work on Home Consoles than mobile-CEDEC survey

    More reasons: The PS3 was super expensive when it first came out which kept pretty much everyone but the hardcore gamers from wanting to buy. So the Wii did well, but it had way fewer "big" games than the PS2, as we'd like to think of them. I think a lot of people bought wiis and didn't use...
