Kotaku: There are many things we could compare between Xenoblade Chronicles X and Final Fantasy XV. But today, we're going to see which has the coolest-looking sliding. That's right, sliding.
this article is stupid even by kotaku standards. also winner is - neither slides. theyre both janky and unrealistic the winner is the guy who kicks a sword into the wolf
That's a dagger.
Now lets move on to another very important question: What are your 3 favourite Final Fantasy games and what is your favourite non-Final Fantasy JRPG?!?
Persona 3, Chrono Trigger, Dragon Quest 8, Final Fantasy 3, Chrono Cross, Persona 4, Suikoden, Xenogears, Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne, The original Legend Of Zelda, Final Fantasy Tactics, Vagrant Story, Secret Of Mana, Phantasy Star 4, Legend Of Mana, Dragon Warrior 1 & 2, Shining Force 1 & 2, Breath Of Fire III, Lufia II. These are the Jrpgs i've played on the SNES, Sega Genesis, and Playstation consoles. Oh wait, Inindo: Way Of The Ninja SNES. I haven't played a Jrpg with a good story in years, except Ni No Kuni.
"I haven't played a Jrpg with a good story in years, except Ni No Kuni. " I am just glad that Persona 5 is a thing and gets hopefully released this year.
Xenoblade Chronicles had a better story than Ni No Kuni. In fact, I found the story to be kind of disappointing in NNK. It had a great premise but it never really made it to a satisfying plot.
Xenoblade Chronicles and The Last Story both have great stories.
Nier has an amazing story with numerous facets and multiple endings that not only expand on the story but often change your perspective of events throughout the game. It's amazing, it should be on your list.
Persona 4 is my fav non ff jrpg. Unfortunately the only ff games I have played are 7, 8, and the original. Working on 10 atm.
IV, VIII, XIV, Xenogears
Sliding isn't in jRPGs. Sounds like an action game to me.
Gotta get out of that closed minded thinking style. Demon's Souls, Dark Souls, Kingdom Hearts, FF15, XCX are all very much jrpgs.
Action isn't allowed in JRPGs? Don't be ridiculous.
Xenoblade Chronicles X since the franchise has a better track record. Gears-Saga-Blade Final Fantasy got worst after X.
1 released game doesnt make a franchise with a reliable track record
Well at least they have better track than Square Enix for sure.
Not one game, one series that encompasses 3 games. Or to put it another way, an entire console generation.
Yeah lets forget the talent behind XCX did Chrono Trigger,Xenogears and Xenosaga and Soma Bringer and NamcoXCapcom and many more.
Better question, which is the best type of Kotaku article? The answer? None, there is no such thing as a good Kotaku article.
The winner is Gamers as both games will likely be awesome.
FFXV can't even dream to have the depth Xenoblade X is going to have so don't go & compare this 2 games there is no doubt that Xenoblade is going to be the better game & the superior experience, FFXV will be just a mindless FF-goes-Skyrim-ala-hack-n-slas h , after watching the 2 big presentation videos for XCX I'm now more than ever convinced that this game is going to be a truly unforgettable experience, I'm jealous now of those who already have or can buy a Wii U anytime they want, because atm I can't afford one :/
Have you played the first Xenoblade? Because if you haven't and are planning to pick up a Wii U to play the new one, I would recommend that you at least play it a little to get used to the combat. It'll give you a huge advantage going into Xenoblade Chronicles X, since the combat in XCX is an evolution of the combat in Xenoblade Chronicles. Maybe pick it up when the N3DS version releases.
Yep I pre-order Xenoblade CE back when it was released I got it day1 here what it have inside http://www.yassuke.com/wp-c... & I buy a used Wii just to play this game the reason I spent so much money just to play 1 game is because the creator of Xenoblade Tetsuya Takahashi create my favorite game of all time Xenogears :) so I had no doubt that anything he create will be worth every penny & it was! my save when I finish the game the first time was close to 200 hours my party was so strong that I massacre the last boss for fun :D
Is Kotaku really zooming into to Prompto's "sliding"? Prompto has the most ridiculous animations for sliding, getting up, attacking, etc because he's supposed to be the most inexperienced member in the team. It's kind of obvious it's him trying to be cool and failing at it.
kotaku sometimes like to make very arguable commenting and reviews either way about games of anime or such... well this is prove that games journalism nowdays really bad
