Of Monoliths and Mecha: Why I’m Excited for X and Why You Should be Too

There’s plenty to be excited about with Monolith Soft’s X. We might not have all the details yet, but what we've seen thus far looks very promising and hopefully Nintendo showcases more of the game this year at E3. (Nintendo, Nintendo, Wii U, X)

Does anyone know who owns the Xenogears rights? If it's Monolith then I'd definitely hope for a remake someday.
Metallox  +   476d ago
Square Enix.
Activemessiah  +   475d ago
ah sh*t.
randomass171  +   475d ago
Maybe it's not so bad. Bravely Default's success might be a sign of things to come! :)
Madock  +   475d ago
It doesn't matter, the people working in Monolith today are the ones who crated Chrono-trigger and co founded Final Fantasy, those ppl r more than capable of producing new games hat far surpasses Final Fantasy
randomass171  +   475d ago
With the right time and funding, they could do just about anything at this point. And since Xenoblade was so successful, there's no reason for Nintendo not to let them.
R00bot  +   475d ago
Of all the games we'll be seeing at E3, this and Zelda are at the top of my must have list. This just looks so good, and if it's anything like Xenoblade then it will be.

What happens if this is better than Xenoblade? Will the sites that gave Xenoblade 10/10 give this 11/10?
Activemessiah  +   475d ago
Gamespot will give it 6/10.
Metallox  +   475d ago
That's nothing. Quarter to Three will give three stars out of five, which in his language is "I liked it", but in Metacritic is a beautiful 60. I can see it.
randomass171  +   475d ago
Only if there are no X ads on the Gamespot website.

I don't think a review score is needed. It's nintendo 1st party now. Retro has some serious competition. Only thing that could beat this is a quake unreal tournament metroid hybrid..... where samus is a badass once more. Or a starfox that requires skill or an f zero with a mad max story for those who can't possibly beat the normal game.

After the what happened with the Xenoblade Chronicles debacle I'll be sure to preorder this game as soon as its available.
wonderfulmonkeyman  +   475d ago
If it's even half as glorious in story and depth of both combat and quests as Xenoblade Chronicles was, then I wouldn't even mind if the game turns out to be single-player.

It was a must-have from the get-go, for me. The trailers for it still send chills down my spine...
R00bot  +   475d ago
I'm just glad that you'll be able to download this one digitally. That way they can never run out of digital copies. I'll probs be downloading it just because I know I'll be coming back to it years from now, and I won't wanna change disks.
ZeekQuattro  +   475d ago
Didn't think of that. If push comes to shove I'll just download it though I'm a sucker for actually owning something tangible if I can help it.
thehobbyist  +   475d ago
Wii U can use 25GB and dual-layered 50GB disks. No game has breached 10GB yet. Wouldn't worry about disc switching.
R00bot  +   475d ago
@thehobbyist
What I meant was switching between this game and other games. Wasn't saying that the game would need multiple disks. Although, I expect it will be one of the larger Wii U games.
BattleN  +   475d ago
4 disk filled to the brim with content 200gig's worth would be crazy right haha! Had a flashback to multi disk days sorry!

I'd pay 80 dollars for this game.
BattleN  +   475d ago
Playing Dragon's Dogma Dark Arisen atm, which is a Monster Hunter hybrid of sorts, and I must say that X on Wii U looks awesome enough to satisfy my open world RPG craving's.

I would pay 90 just for standard edition, now for special edition most I would drop is 140 any higher, and no deal
randomass171  +   475d ago
Heck, I'd go the full 100 if I had to lol. That'd be a lot of saving up though...
Paolo11  +   475d ago
This is actually the game I've been waiting for at E3.
scissor_runner  +   475d ago
I'm really looking forward to this game because it may bring forward better middle ware also.
deafdani  +   475d ago
Xenoblade was my favorite game of the last generation, so X is the game I'm looking forward to the most. Let's hope it makes it to the West this year.
randomass171  +   475d ago
Xenoblade was definitely a masterpiece. And this new game is rumored to have online coop. Online. Coop. Xenoblade followup.

*screams internally with joy*

thehobbyis for your information Leggo City Under Cover on Wii U has 21GB there are more games that surpass the 10Gb.
