Nintendo released new screenshots from Xenoblade Chronicles X.
I'm not feeling the whole create your own character for JRPG with a supposedly storyline to it.
Yeah I'm not sure about it either, but I think we should wait until we get more info on the game to judge it. It worked with Mass Effect... Somewhat...
I think the move from a rounded, enjoyable protagonist in Xenoblade Chroniclesto the create-your-own mute in X is a huge step back.
I seriously dont see how somebody can disagree with you. That is also the biggest thing that has been bothering me. With Xeno, you had all these beautiful interactions between the characters. The group became one and each character, including Shulk, had his/her own voice which made them who they are. The interaction made you feel as if you, as the player, were actually part of the gang. Now, it seems you are playing as a mute character... It takes a sense of interaction, and immersion away from the experience. Over than that, the game looks so incredibly beautiful. I really can't wait to get my hands on this game.
Plots always take a hit when main characters aren't designed by the writer. I know it sucks for those looking for an "epic" JRPG story but at least we know their focus is 100% gameplay.
The e3 2014 trailer should be a good indicator that the story won't be suffering from the customisable protagonist.
I don't know if it's a step back, but it certainly doesn't make telling a story easier. As said below, I'll give Monolith soft the benefit of the doubt though. (Interestingly, Shulk was originally intended as a silent protagonist too. But they changed their mind at some point during development. So in this respect it technically really is a "step back")
If any man knows good stories its Tetsuya Takahashi trust them, put your faith in them. Monolith knows what they are doing.
Being able to create my character makes it feel more like I'm there. So I'm cool with it. Can't wait to play.
I agree. But I'll give them the benefit of the doubt. If anyone can pull this off, it's Tetsuya Takahashi.
Looks great. RPG fan. Console seller!
I love create your own character. It is a solo mmo about me and not some wussy nerd. BEEEEEFCAAAAAAKE!!!
I HOPE they have a Wii U bundle with X! Cant wait to get this game and my Wii U. The poor guy is going to be on 24/7!!!
I'm jus happy the game is coming out. I enjoyed the last one and I sure to enjoy this;)
