I kind of want to wait for Last Story, but I may pick this up. I also don't really feel like I'm up for a long RPG.

I'm glad to see Last Story get a NA release, since its been a while since a Sakaguchi games been released ; I'll prolly pick up Xenoblade for some jrpg action. Amazon has this as Monado

Plus it would be nice to use my Wii; its collecting dust.

Went to EB games today and they confirmed for me that the game is being released April 5th (technically today) in Canada.

GO GET IT SPIDER!

went to the G-stop and preordered my copy. I'm guessing this is becoming a hit, considering how much earlier we could of had this.

I will wake up early tomorrow..

Although its visuals aren't surely groundbreaking, Xenoblade Chronicles proves to be an excellent jRPG that demonstrates just how much this genre has still to offer to its loyal fans
Quote:
The best Japanese RPG of this generation. The fact that it looks like it's from the last generation is its only drawback, but its technical limitations are offset by imaginative artistic direction, innovative and compelling combat, and thoughtful design. It's a throwback to the glory days of the genre.
Quote:
Monolith provides the biggest and most ambitious game on Wii by a long-shot. Xenoblade Chronicles reignites the JRPG and adventure genres in one classy swoop; that this grandiose spectacle is under the banner of Nintendo is the cherry on top.
10 Perfect scores.

Edit: Picked it up with a Black Wii classic controller pro
