Xenoblade X’s open world is unbelievably big. And so are a number of its threats.
This feels like a great game to spend an evening wandering around while sipping a beer or a cognac.
* So far, Xenoblade Chronicles 3DS is bigger than most console games I've ever played. * And XCX is supposed to be at least 5x as big.
Its not about size, but amount of things to do. For example GTA5 has rather large map and its incredibly well populated with events and collectibles, while watch dogs city feels rather empty.
I'm all for more open-world RPGs. Now I just need to get a Wii U...
Exactly, this looks like the next big JRPG.
Sounds epic. Not sure I have the time needed to play it, but it sounds epic.
beautiful article to get me pumped, never played a Xenoblade game, but I am loving everything I see, hear and read.
From the article: "To give some idea of how big it is, I spent a couple of hours wandering around just the corner of a map, exploring, fighting monsters, and sightseeing. Just what I saw during that time alone seemed gigantic compared to other recent role-playing releases. While playing, I noticed that Wii U controller’s screen showed a 7 percent value listed just below a world map. When I asked if that number represented the amount of the game’s world I’ve seen, a Nintendo representative grinned and said that I had only walked about 7 percent of one of the world’s five continents. My jaw dropped." So basically it's got almost the size of some MMO worlds, with a big amount of the online multiplayer perks. I think my jaw's gonna leave a dent in my game pad.XD It might not out-size FFXV, but it's gonna be more than big enough to satisfy, looks like.
In every sense of the word!
I sold my Wii U to GameStop for extra cash. That was the only new generation console I owned and I miss it already. I will not miss Xenoblade Chronicles though. How about a XC bundle Nintendo?
