Today’s Xenoblade Chronicles X tweets by director Tetsuya Takahashi once again touched upon the mechs (called “Dolls”) in the game. Takahashi set aside talk of the game’s art staff to speak a little bit about the Dolls this morning.
Must be nice! Can't wait to play it. Nfc toys would be so sweet with this game!
lol seriously? i dont think this game is for children
I wonder who is buying all of these toys? http://www.amiami.com/sp/ I don't know many kids with $100s worth of toys on display. Surly you have never seen a toy in a developers office? Who said anything about kids.
It's not, but the Shulk Amiibo is a given for unlocking extra content in it.
i know some people like to collect and display those sort of things for games and movies but thats not my sort of thing. i would also question if they were 'toys'. i would call them figures/statues. since a toy is something you interact with. its not very interactive if its just stood on a shelf or in a glass cabinet, is it. sure, xenoblade statues would be cool, but im not sure i would buy them. the only way i would buy one is if one came as part of a limited edition with the game.
Just because you are not playing with it doesn't mean it is not a toy. Just because you don't interact with money doesn't mean it isn't money. You seem to be hung up on adult trappings. Adults have many toys. Toy is not exclusive to kids. Lamborghini are toys and many things can be put in glass cases. That doesn't change what they are. Toy designers are helping make the "doll". Dolls are toys also.
When I read that, I immediately thought of mario shooting down a giant red monkey and it made me smile a bit.
This and Zelda make 2015 a win.
Devils third and Splatoon say hi
And Yoshi's Whooly World!
Sprinkles make the ice cream better my friend =]
On my list. Might pre-order Splatoon as it looks fantastic. as good as 2014 has been for U/gamers 2015 looks even better.
@above - smh.
And Star Fox!
This is one of my GoTY's for 2015!
all we need is a Chibbi Robbo Wii U
This and Pokken fighter will be my motivation to get a Wii U.
Takahashi is my favorite game maker, but I still haven't finished Xenoblade (still ashamed of that). I just could not cope with the sound effects and screams being so frikkin loud during battles. Can't hear the good music, cuz the battles interrupt the serene exploration atmosphere. Also, it was really text heavy. Took forever to read about the side quests in Japanese, because the font was so small and unclear. Still, I think Xenoblade is the best traditional JRPG (played it around 50hrs) since Suikoden 5 and some DQ Remakes. That being said, this and Bloodborne are the two only real games I'm looking forward to. And to some extent this X more than anything else, because I really liked Souls' games shield+sword approach, and Bloodborne seems to have gone other way (although I have yet to try the attack-focused combat). Everything I hear about X sounds promising. I just need to invest into another Nintendo's console against my will. They just offer so goddamn good games every once in a while.
Well worth the investment.
I heed your advice! The new Zelda interests me as well. Gotto finish Twilight Princess one of these days. Was a really good game. Also, gotto like your alias. Brings memories from Chaos Engine!
yeah I can remember being excited for anything Bitmap Brothers, Team17 or Factor 5 released. Great times indeed. Honestly I just finished Twilight Princess this year lol. fantastic game not sure why it gets a bad rap ?
Oh yeah, Bit Map Brothers. Xenon 2 Megablast! Team 17 had the coolest art and logo as well. Psygnosis, too. Everything those guys made was golden. And the music...damn! I still listen to the soundtracks. Check this out, it's dynamite! https://www.youtube.com/wat...
do you play using wii console? there another choice by playing using wii emulator-Dolphin you can play with the emulator setting as sound and others graphical effects,also--the most important is there are HD textures made by fans also,did you play the japanese version?isnt it that english version are available and you can even change to jap dub and english subs, also there are quest guide in xenoblade wiki with required details information regarding npc and stuff the game storyline take more than 50hours to finished,i even take about over 100hours to finished the game together with quest...50hours doesnt cover too much of the game story and content,especially there always lot of area to explore and lot of unexpected plot twist in the game,especially when near end of game...the experience are awesome better find time to finished it...it kind of waste
I played both on a Japanese Wii and later on using Dolphin. I don't own the Xenoblade Chronicles, so I can't play it. Also, I like playing games in Japanese to train my language abilities. Thanks for the tip, though! You are right, I really gotto find time and put some effort into finishing this game. Sadly, I think I have to start it all over again (for the third time), but the emulator runs now 100%, so it's all good.
lol at the title compared to what he actually said. Sensationalism much?
Now all he's gotta do is finish up Xenosaga. May have to get a Wii U for this.
Sounds like he's extremely satisfied with what he's done here. And if he is, then we're sure to be in for a treat!
If he is satisfied with what he has created and this is the original vision that he had all those years ago, then we are looking at quite possibly the greatest JRPG ever made right here. Game of the Genre JRPG!!!
