Yea i dont think its the best but whats considered the best matter of opinon as aways :) , but its something Nintendo needs more of get back to the roots of RPGs. These characters make laugh and im curious to see what other attacks i can pull off. I die a few times too many , the battle system is different than what i thought indeed. But i like and it works for me. Im not far in the game but i really just wanted to get some gameplay up and see how this game was. The fact that it almost didnt come over over here ill definitely buy this game here shortly. Thanks Lee Thats That HD PVR POWER too bad wii isnt tru HD but it looks great to me too.

Use component cables, crank the sharpness up on your TV and lower the color and you'll be amazed by the fact that by sharpening the picture and mellowing out the color that you'll notice it's as good as true HD even though technically it's only near HD. ;)
This only works with component cables however.

X-145, I'm sorry buddy. I thought you would've had your own copy by now, anyways. I hope you can purchase one soon, or you'll probably be forced to pay more for just a used copy. I think ebay still has a few auctions that are set at a reasonable or even discounted price range.

I have to say that this game has a really interesting story to it. Not many games can grab my attention like Xenoblade has. So I hope that the more I play, the more it can keep me interested like it has since the begyinning.

@Rukiafan
I don't have any component cables. And I prefer not to mess with the tv settings when I already have it to my favorite preference. Thanks for the tip, though. It really makes me want to try the component cables out.

And I also found the game to be a lot more enjoyable once I messed with the in game settings and cleared some things from the hub.

Did you receive your copy of Xenoblade Chronicles yet P.K.? I'd really like to know what you think about it, once you experience the beginning of the storyline and finish doing some exploring. If you paid more than $49.99 for a used copy, I would send it back immediately. There are brand new copies available for mail order from GameStop online.

How many hours has everyone been playing for, so far? I've been playing for about 34 hours, and I've completed almost 70 sidequests. I recently visited the Gaur Plains for my first time, and all I could say was, "Wow!" for the first half an hour I was there. It's just enormous, and the landscape is very uniquely and beautifully constructed. I've only mapped about half of the lower region, so far. The sheer size of the wide open plains is just awe inspiring, in my opinion. The art direction is very imaginative, and it really has me interested to explore further.

HELLLLL NO! I'm not sure exactly what percentage of the game I've completed, but I know I'm nowhere near the halfway mark. Most of those 34 hours were spent mapping out my surroundings and completing sidequests. I've only done a very, very minimal amount of grinding. I find grinding really boring and tedious. I try not to grind as much as possible, unless it becomes necessary. To give you some type of comparison, I've only completed about 70 sidequests. There are 480-490 sidequests in total. That only equates to a little over 14% of the sidequests. :P

I'm starting to fall in love with this game. The story hooked me right away, the combat is also pretty fun, and the sidequest are probably me least favorite of the game. But somehow the game always hooks me in. I'm about 29 hours into the game and got to a certain area where I was looking around and it took my breath away. I really cant believe how massive the world is. It is really quite impressive.

X-145, Xenoblade Chronicles is completely worth every penny of it's $49.99 price tag. If you're a completionist like me, you'll want to collect everything and complete every sidequest in the game. If so, Xenoblade Chronicles can offer over 200 hours of gameplay. Hell, I've even been informed by some gamers that it required them nearly 200 hours to finally finish, and they didn't even try to complete every sidequest. I'd say that's definitely getting your money's worth. The amount of content isn't it's only merit either. The extensive attention to detail, incredible storyline, phenomenal music and innovative battle system also fill out the total package very nicely. The extremely massive and very uniquely designed landscapes really provide the sense of a fully realised fantasy world. If those outstanding qualities aren't intriguing enough, then you're not a deserving fan of this epic RPG.

I'm actually going back and trying to complete the sidequest that I missed. And now I'm trying to mix and match my team so that I can complete the heart to heart quest. I'm about 30 hours into the game and I've been using the same 3 people throughout the whole quest, so now I think its time to change it up while I have the chance. At least everyone levels up even though you dont use them.

Awesome Game It took me awhile to come around, but now I can see what all the fuss is about.

Rory, you'll need to raise your affinity level for whatever areas you're trying to complete sidequests in. This can be done by completing sidequests, and sometimes by just talking with villagers in a specific order. Certain sidequests are only available if you have unlocked a high enough affinity star rating for that specific area. Some sidequests are only available at night time. You should try talking to everyone you can locate at night and in the daytime. Sometimes if you talk with villagers twice in a row you'll also gain affinity points. Finally, some quests only become available after you've completed other sidequests that are somehow interconnected. Acquiring every sidequest that is available in an area at a specific point in the storyline can require a lot of running back and forth. I think the sidequests add a lot of depth to the; otherwise, shallow gameplay. They also give you a themed reason to go out and grind experience. Completing some sidequests even reward you with a ton of experience points. I have completed a few sidequests that rewarded me a whopping 400 experience points, besides currency and items.

Yeah, I got all that figured out. I'm just trying to raise the affinity levels now by teaming up with different people. It sucks using other people as your main character. Shulk is definitely the best of the group.

By the way Rory, you do know that increasing the affinity rating for an area and between you and your partners is two seperate ratings, correct?

I've only recruited Sharla, so far. I've only reached the Gaur Plains area, because I've been doing every single sidequest. I think Fiora was much better in battle than Sharla is. Although, Dunban was a pretty fierce fighter in the battle with Metalface at Colony 9. I've been playing for just about 44 hours now, and I've completed almost or more than 80 sidequests. I haven't counted how many I've completed in awhile. I'll find out when I play some more later today.

I'm not quite sure how many I have done either. I always accept every side quest and it shows that I completed alot of them. And I always make sure I try and complete the timed quest.

I always make completing the timed sidequests my first priority. Once you advance the storyline to a certain point, they will be unavailable from there on out. You never know how far you're able to advance the story before they'll disappear either. I think it's really cool when you run into a Surprise sidequest too. They really give you the sense you're actually exploring a living and breathing world.
