One of the most relevant features of Xenoblade Chronicles X is the ability to pilot transformable mecha named "Dolls," and today Nintendo aired a long video explaining how they work
MY GOD, Those character models look so damn ugly it's infuriating.
I'm not infuriated. The game looks amazing overall.
Well that's you... I'm not even a huge advocate for superb graphics, but man I hate those character models so much.
The models sure dont "infuriate" me, but seeing as the rest of the game is so beautiful, I dont see why the character models are so ugly
what saddens me is the soundtrack, i just heard all the samples and disc 1 is amazing and rest of it is dogs***. half of it is garbage engrish rap/vocals and the remaining is attack on titan. game looks amazing though. too bad with the delay of zelda im not gonna be buying a wii u anytime soon
@biggerboss It's probably because they put a ton of resources in making the environments and enemies look good
Massive Multiplayer Online Co-Op, that would be Amazing.
I dunno, maybe their eyes are a little too big, but they don't really bother me that much. I can live with some less than perfect character models if they are giving me online co-op, countless hours of gameplay (if the Wii version was anything to go by), great story, and overall great gameplay. Sometimes one can be too picky. The Order had great visuals, but the game was sort of lacking in other areas. So wouldn't you rather have a better game than better graphics?
It's not a matter of it being a better game or having better graphics, they just needed a better artist.
big eyes r more attractive than small eyes!
OO > -
Lol, I could go play white knight chronicles or an old SNES RPG and be immersed by it.... this game isn't ffxv visually, but I know it will be awesome and immersive!
U KNOW THEY R TOTALLY CUSTOMIZABLE RITE?
U DO KNOW ONLY THE PLAYABLE CHARACTER RITE???
Says the guy with FFXV Gay jpop noctis avatar and his bum buddies. Nomura is seriously the worst. Surprised we don't see 1300 belts and Zippers.
I'm going to play the shit out of both FFXV And xenoblade chronicles x and love them both because I'm not a fanboy. But its funny to call out FFXV character designs (which are pretty modest for Square Enix) when you just watched a video with the main character wearing super skin tight pants that exposed his ass. Lol we all know that solid snake is the only guy character who can pull that off.
@Kingdomtriggers XCX are fully custom so is the armor. FFXV so far showing you are stuck looking like a jpop band
They just confirmed that online co-op is a thing, AND ALL YOU HAVE TO COMMENT ON IS THE DAMNED CHARACTER MODELS? Dude, just stop.
Of course, they need to focus on the bad things. It's "the (hater's) norm" on every Nintendo article.
Putting it in relation reveals how petty and immature these complaints are. I get why people are not 100% behind the art-syle of the character faces, but they are definitely not THAT bad. Seriously, seeing how people manage to be blind towards anything else a game has to offer, but pick the utmost trivial thing just to make a big fuss about, just shows the state the modern gaming community really is in. Frankly, I couldn't be more disgusted right now.
You do know you can customise each chracter in a party right? put a helmet on them and stop complaining lol problem solved.
Probably cause you're a westernized pop gamer that is expecting realism and not Japanese-focused character artstyles This is a JRPG, with Japanese style character models. I think they look fantastic. Features are intentionally exaggerated like the eyes and jawbone lines. That's just how the Japanese draw characters. These look WAY better than most Japanese games.
I actually prefer the Japanese artstyle. And whomever I decide to marry in X, is going to be a hot b*tch
* Dude it's obvious your just hating because it "competes" in the same category as FF15. It's like a pre-defense...defense... We see through you. Like a glass onion. It's ok for there to be games on other systems that are good. Your PS4 will be ok.
Posting my first comment in over 4 months to say that this looks freaking amazing! I'm absolutely floored by this game!
Only on Wii U :D
It wouldn't be a great wiiu exclusive without somebody crying about something.
I'm sorry if you watched this whole video and thought man I'm not into this game because of the character model art I might start thinking about a new hobby If I'm been an a-hole I for real I'm very sorry but I just can't help but feel it this was on Xbox and playstation exactly that way it is now people would be going nuts for it. If I'm wrong I'm sorry.
If the game was on X1 or Ps4, the character models would still be ugly. People arent complaining about them just because the games a Nintendo exclusive, theyre just ugly. Its not a big issue, but it does detract from an otherwise gorgeous game
dude wtf...no one is saying anything about the console...the characters faces look like dogsh!t, it's not a graphics thing, it's a modeling and artstyle thing. Look at the big dude explaining...he looks like they tried to make mass effects Shepard.. And why are you sorry?? Is it your game? Holy hell.
I would love to play this game, but its only on Wii U and not many people at all could care less about that system. And no...this is no Wii U hate comment, just look at overall sales. Its very sad unfortunately for my favorite childhood game company. If you own a Wii U, you dust it off and play amazing exclusives once or twice a year then throw it back in the closet.
We keep playing the good games while you waste money year on year on like 20 different multiplats that just get a mild upgrade ???
You may be right about picking the wii u to dust of on exclusives, wich have been quiet often honestly, with super smash, mario kart, bayoneta, and so on, but i also own a ps4, and apart of Last of us and gta 5 my ps4 sees no use, at all, sometimes because the games releasing on it are simply mediocre, other times because the games i really want like evolve and dying light costed me half the price for Pc for the same experience. My ps4 is dusting over, while my Wii U is fresh out the shelf waiting for super smash dlc, and mario kart dlc and playing some super mario party with my family meanwhile.
The only thing from my U in my closet is it's box-I use mine daily, not sure wtf you're going on about..
well dang a Nintendo game cant be on Wii U
My Wii U stays gaming. It's my PS4 and Xbox that's gonna end up in the closet. It does get far fewer games, BUT, it just gets some really good ones that I'd rather play over anything on the other systems. Tbh, 3DS has been putting all 3 of em to shame lately though.
WiiU has games you keep playing unlike ps4/xbox1... If you think this is the only game worth getting your WiiU out for this year then your daft try Devils Third,Fast Racing,Starfox,and lots more....wait for E3 and people will be surprised by the games they see....
Well it sure beats waiting 5 years for a mediocre 6 hour campaign. Cough... The Order... cough. I'll take 2 amazing games over 10 decent ones. Also th Wii U has the highest rated exclusives of this generation and I haven't regretted a single purchase.
I will have to make some friends on wii u to play this with!
PM me your ID if you want. I'll be getting it day one.
PM me your NNID and we can get started!
PM me as well! I'm looking for people to play with, too!
Can't freaking wait for this! Hopefully they'll announce a US/EU release date soon.
When is this game coming out?
later this year. There isn't a firm release date yet, unless you're in Japan.
Okay so it's 2015 at this point. I wasn't sure if it was 2015 or 2016. Wii U is my secondary console but really looking fwd to this one.
We'll get a solid date at e3.
It comes out first in Japan at the end of April. Nintendo has only said that the game is currently planned for a targeted 2015 release overseas. Developer Monolith Soft did confirm that localization is underway. However, this is one of Nintendo's bigger localization efforts, so I wouldn't expect it out until fall.
My GOTG is almost here. MinolithSoft>Gods
This game is outstanding! I don't get all the hate for the characters.. Just something to whine about I guess The mechs look damn awesome and online missions look fun :D can't wait for it!
This could potentially be the game that would make me regret to have sold my Wii U. It was collecting dust otherwise.
Nintendo!! Mecha amiibo ?!
Oh heeeeeeell yeah. I would be ALL OVER THAT....
I would most definitely wait in a long ass line for that! :)
This game will most likely be the GOTG for me (a title currently held by The Wonderful 101). Damn. Xenoblade on Wii was my favorite game last gen, so I'm really hyped about this new entry.
