Read these:

http://www.gameinformer.com/b/news/a...o-the-wii.aspx

http://www.destructoid.com/letter-wr...r-204505.phtml

Then message Nintendo (and write letters!)

http://twitter.com/#!/NintendoAmerica

http://www.facebook.com/home.php#!/N...1?notif_t=like

http://www.youtube.com/user/Nintendo

Also, if you intend to buy the game, pre-order it now.

Currently Xenoblade is #1 on Amazon's best seller list. :O

I can't because it's not on Amazon.ca and Amazon.com are cunts and won't ship games to Canada.

NOW GET TO IT

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.
Its a prequal no doubt. I dont exactly remember the ending of Xenosaga so well anymore but they left some misteries open to the time when everything began - the time when chaos was first born i believe.
I remember noticing that you could see they really wanted to tell more about that time in the Xeno 3 ending.

I was reading namco's results from last year and Vesperia sold half a million in US/EU wich wasnt too bad. Also the game seems to have had great sucess when it relaunched on Xbox live this year so im thinking it did well overall. I would expect Namco to release future titles online though. Soon after the sucess of vesperia they re-released Eternal Sonata aswell.

Just in case anyone's interested:

Since Amazon.ca are useless gobshytes - they literally don't know why Monado isn't listed, don't know if or when they will get it and can't tell me why Amazon.com has it when .ca doesn't, and since Amazon.com is 100% xenophobic against Canada and refuses to ship games here, I've taken the trouble of mailing:

www.videogamesplus.ca

www.futureshop.ca

www.bestbuy.ca

I briefly outlined Operation Rainfall, how it is currently #1 on Amazon's best seller list with pre-orders (hopefully that gets their attention), and told them whichever site gets this game first will get my pre-order, along with word of mouth for other people I know who want this game. I encourage others to do the same. (That means you Spider!)

“Hey fans, we appreciate your enthusiasm. Look for more updates to come soon!”



That’s a message Nintendo of America left on their Facebook page after a fan movement campaigning for localizations of Wii games Xenoblade Chronicles, The Last Story and Pandora’s Tower, dubbed “Operation: Rainfall,” took off on the IGN message boards.



Eventually, the movement snowballed and fans took to mass-pre-ordering Xenoblade Chronicles (currently known as Monado: Beginning of the World in the U.S.) on Amazon, resulting in it rising it to the top of the videogame charts on the site.



Developed by Xenosaga developer, Monolith Soft, Xenoblade Chronicles, under its U.S. name, Monado, was listed on Nintendo of America’s release calendar for many months after they showed the game at E3 2009. In fact, the game was shown in the U.S. even before Japan, but little has been heard regarding a U.S. localization since. In Europe, Xenoblade Chronicles is slated for release this year.



Judging by their Facebook message, Nintendo of America have taken notice of attempts by fans to get them to be more forthcoming on the issue of a U.S. release.
There's hope for the US yet.

Well Another Code R, Disaster and Fatal Frame have no chance now. Earthseeker I can see someone doing maybe XSeed. Ni No Kuni is gonna be done by Sony on the PS3 so I can see the DS version getting completely ignored.

I have plans on getting a Wii this holiday (reserved Zelda). Honestly Xenoblade looks like the closest thing to a "new jrpg". I haven't had the feeling in a long time too.

I sincerely hope people buy no new Nintendo products at all. Saying "I'm buying a Wii for Zelda" lets Nintendo continue their sense of complacency about releasing games.

I just hope this all works and we get the 3 games in the US. I am looking forward to Zelda but I want other options to play as well.
