VideogameUK Review: Xenoblade Chronicles

From the review:

"The JRPG genre has been stagnating, whether we want to admit it or not. There have been no real revolutionary steps in the genre to revitalize itself and become relevant to the games industry. Final Fantasy is being beaten like a dead horse, many of the Tales series games are not being localised for western audiences and lets not even talk about what happened to Star Ocean. This is where Xenoblade comes in."

i disagree Jrpg genre being stagnant is a myth ..and only uninformed people believe in these lies ..

i agree about the score as the game is very good

kesvalk1720d ago

yes, it's not stagnant, it's more like non-existent...

Redempteur1720d ago

i feel for you , unable to play the good Jrpgs that are out or are coming ..

uninformed people these days ....

jacksonmichael1720d ago

Well, then inform us, oh enlightened one.

Redempteur1719d ago

i would but currently i 'm so busy getting dark feathers in Tales of xillia (and enjoying the game) that i can't . Once i have my Xillia plat i'll come back at you .

In the meantime, i suggest trying atelier rorona , disagaea 4,tactics ogre LUCT, tales of vesperia and white knight chronicles 2 . Those are good starters.

kesvalk1719d ago

from the games you listed, the only good one is disgaea 4...

if you want to play crappy games ok, but i want Xenoblade level RPGs, that simply don't exist this gen (apart from last story and some DS RPGs)

IGNORANT

"Tactic ogre : let us cling together" is the rpg that made srpgs revelant , it's a classic that came even before ff tactics , your ignorance is showing ..

You don't know a classic even if someone put it in front of you , that's ridiculous.
I'm wasting my time..

Xenoblade is an unrivaled gem indeed but if you can't play /enjoy something slightly inferior , your not a gamer or a rpg lover , you're just a troll . an uninformed , pathetic troll.

Tactics Ogre is great but its a SRPG. IMO its a vastly different kind of game from a JRPG, which yes, has stagnated this gen, save for a tiny handful of pretty good JRPGs and just one or two truly great ones.

I think the die-hard JRPG fans have just been forced to have much lower standards that they don't even realize how mediocre so many of the games are these days.

Of course, there may be some other great JRPGs that the west hasn't seen, and in that case, you really can't blame us for being "ignorant" about a game that isn't even in our market. Not all of us are willing to play a Japanese game with an English translation guide open the entire time.

Lol, you called kesvalk a troll. You're the troll. Kesvalk is just a Nintendo fan.
