Lost Odyssey has sold very well. The rest to be honest have been pretty crap (Infinite Undiscovery, Star Ocean 4, Resonance Of Fate, Last Ramnent). The DS is the ultimate RPG system at the moment.

I thought Star Ocean 4 did well in Japan, especially with the Ps3 release.
And lets not forget Tales of Vesperia as well guys.

I wouldn't mind trying this out. I just hope it plays as good as it looks. And hoping the story doesn't drag on.

I'm not really expecting much on this game, but I will wait to hear more before buying.

The Xenoblade Original Soundtrack will feature 91 tracks spanning 4 discs. Included in the bunch are Yoko Shimomura's main theme song (apparently titled just "Main Theme") and Yasunori Mitsuda's end theme, "Beyond the Sky." The soundtrack also includes music that wasn't used in the game.
if i was as much a fanboy as i was back in the psn days, i'd be all over soundtracks like this, especially since it has 2 songs from 2 legendary jrpg composers

but i'm just "meh" with news like this now-a-days



tho, who is the main composer?

Confirmed for Europe at least.

Who says the Wii is dead?

Not Nintendo Europe, anyway.

It's just launched a UK teaser site for Wii-exclusive role-playing game Xenoblade, confirming a European launch.

In Europe the game is known as Xenoblade Chronicles.

Xenoblade was made by Monoloth Soft, the team behind the XenoSaga series.

It has a Final Fantasy XII-style action battle system, but layered on top is manual character movement. It's set in a universe where two worlds called Bionis and Mechonis fight an endless war. You join the battle for Bionis to "repel the invasion of a terrifying mechanical army and uncover the secrets of a mystical sword called the Monado".

Xenoblade Chronicles features full English voice localisation, but also includes the original Japanese voice work with English subtitles.

It's set for release later this year.

Hopefully they'll announce it before Xenoblade flops.

Really enjoyed Xenogears when it first came out, game explored some very deep themes through an intriguing storyline and interesting, detailed characters. Second disc really felt like they rushed the last parts of the game though, with its storybook exposition. Still, the storyline of Xenogears was probably too ambitious for its own good. It had some very interesting background reading with the Perfect works book though. Recently downloaded this again off psn though it probably still be a while before I can replay this again.

Xenosaga ep1 was a much more coherent effort imo. It set the stage for future entries but was also more than capable of providing a very engaging stand-alone story. Espescially with the whole human vs conscious machine philosophical dilemmas the game delved upon. Found the game too much of a grindfest though. Xenosaga 2 was a total failure imo. Changing the character designs was bad enough, but the battle system was what killed the game by being so overly frustrating and tedious.

I think Xenosaga ep3 did everything right. The battle system was fun and engaging without having to grind to protract the game and make it artificially longer. The storyline was cut short but ep3 somehow managed to draw it to a satisfying close. Even the ES/mech sections and battles were very cool!

Really curious where Xenoblade is going to land in the Xeno legacy. Still remains one of my favorite jrpg series.
