Monolith is really a god-send for Wii U owners; they're delivering high-quality software that defies the naysayers and their calls of "Weak-U".

Thing is Wii U's lineup has consistently had high scoring hit after hit despite the Wii U so called power gulf vs. PS4 and Xbox One. A;so despite the absence of third parties.

Not only that...Wii U's games are COMPLETE and not BUGGY. It's a fine console with a damn fine gaming library.


Yep. At least Nintendo and Co. take their time to refine and polish their titles. Going to be a treat for Wii U owners.

wonderfulmonkeyman3154d ago

I was just pointing out that Monolith is doing a fantastic job of offering something new and unique.
Wii U doesn't have as many RPG's as I would like it to have, after all.

WeAreLegion3154d ago

So...we're just going to pretend Game & Wario doesn't exist?

Nintendo screws up just like everyone else.

Not to mention the Amiibo shipping BS.

Nintendo isn't some godsend. They're an excellent company, but don't act like they're perfect.

i take Xenoblade over FFXV anytime.
FFXV smells fishy to me.. Fells like they're hiding its weaknesses behind gorgeous graphics cause we know nothing about this game just yet. After over 6 years it's very weird.
Xenoblade is my top anticipated RPG this year. Cannot wait

wonderfulmonkeyman3154d ago (Edited 3154d ago )

We're aware, Legion.

Nintendo's advertisement efforts and naming sense for recent consoles is more than enough evidence that Nintendo needs some guidance in certain areas.

We're just saying that Monolith is doing great things for the company, and that there have been a LOT of screw-ups in third party games lately by comparison.

We know as much about the new X as FFXV, we know alot now...like...what more do we need to know other than play the demo ourselves??

I'll make sure to play both of these games anyhow

NoctisPendragon3154d ago


We know close to nothing about FF XV but we know alot about FF XV's demo.
Can you tell me how the gameplay works?
How do you farm weapon ?
About Magic ?
About summons classes ?
About the size of the map?
Do you know more than 1 area of FF XV?
Did you see 1 finished town ?
Do you know what the story is really about (dont talk me about a J-Pop band or idk what)?
Do you know about what we dont know (train station,airspih,weather system,vertical figthing,summoning) ?

Next to XCX , we really dont know anything about FF XV. Even after the demo , we wont know as much as XCX informations.

Monolith Soft were always amazing from the beginning delivering and helped developing great games.


Legend Of Zelda Skyward Sword

Xenoblade Chronicles


Square should have held on to them. They are amazing.

Godmars2903154d ago

Square should have stuck to experimental gameplay instead of the over focus towards graphics.

PlebeGamer3154d ago

I can't help but get hyped for the game more and more every time I see new information. The recent update to the official website was huge and confirmed character creation that went beyond anything I imagined.

JacketsNest1013154d ago

This is one the absolute best write-ups I've ever seen for this game. Well done!!!!

WeAreLegion3154d ago

I think this game is going to be one of the best titles of the generation. It just looks like so much fun!

NoctisPendragon3154d ago (Edited 3154d ago )

Now Xenoblade X is the "victim" who got bashed 1st by the other (FF XV) ? lol ok.
Nice way to start a war then get away when you dont need this war anymore.

There are very good reasons why FFXVI didn't sell as much as FFXV

Final Fantasy XVI’s launch was very different than Final Fantasy XV’s and the two mainline game releases are difficult to compare for a number of reasons.

While it seems really cool and people seem to really be enjoying it, I'm in the mood for a real jrpg right now, not an action game.

This is the first mainline Final Fantasy game I didn't pick up at launch since the original FF7 on PS1.

I'll certainly get it eventually, just not in the mood for this right now. Personal taste.

“I'm in the mood for a real jrpg right now, not an action game.”

Implying that action RPGs aren’t real JRPGs?

closed_account93d ago (Edited 93d ago )

If I can't control the party, it's not for me. I actually really like how FF7 Remake handled combat, being able to choose to straight up action it, or slow down time for more strategic party control...regardless of how I felt about them bloating the story.

If this satisfies your jrpg itch, then cool, have at it! The story experience looks amazing though, which is why I'll probably pick it up Black Friday.

shinoff218393d ago

You know what he's trying to say. Most of us learned of jrpg during the golden age of jrpgs and they were very very different. While I'm liking ff16 it doesn't really feel well jrpgish at all.

FallenAngel198493d ago

@ OtterX

Props to you if you don’t like the game. Not here to say you’re wrong for not enjoying it

Just saying JRGGS come in various ways and it’s disingenuous to say one is less real than another

@ shin

JRPGs have a large variety. Even during the golden age there were plenty of quality action RPGs. It’s absurd to say there’s only one way to design a game in a genre that has so many design principles

closed_account92d ago

@FallenAngel1984 lol, yea I'm not going to dive into a semantics debate. enjoy the game, I'll catch up with it later. cheers, mate.

shinoff218391d ago


That's not what I'm saying at all. I enjoy action rpgs just as much. Star ocean is one of my favorite series. The year star ocean 6 released I've even said it was my personal game of the year. Im not thrilled they changed the combat in ff particularly, but combat aside ff16 didn't feel jrpgish at all.
