I can't allow myself to care about this as much as I did before. I'm absolutely sick of Japanese games localization taking years just for a damned decision to localize. I would really have loved to play Xenogear, but the last patience I have for this 'Whenever, if ever we get around to it' crap is for Namco and the Tales series, and to be honest, they had better start doing better soon themselves...

Reggie F'ed up. When you hear about a game, with me at least, there is an alarm clock of tolerance and set aside money that starts ticking down. At some point, you have to move on. YEARS will do that to you. The Japanese enjoyed these games quite some time ago. Even the Europeans have had Xenogear for a few months now after their long wait.

With the 3DS finally having a steady stream of solid games releasing, the PS3 and 360 games coming out soon that I'm interested in, and anticipation for the Wii U, after Skyward Sword, I'm likely done with buying new games on Wii. Especially new/old games. By Reggie's own admission, SS will be the Wii's "high point" game. Trouble is, back during the summer and early fall, when the Wii had NOTHING going for it the time of ripeness for the release of these games was at its peak. Now the fruit is falling off the tree and rotting.

Good luck to you folks still hoping though. I may buy a used copy of Xenogear some day if gaming funds open up again for the game. But now I'm saving for a Wii U in addition to my regular game purchases.

Here you go, the game has been out for quite some time now.

Derp. My bad. I meant Xenoblade of course.

I hope that this succeeds as xenoblade is an amazing game and i'm guessing by the looks of the trailers that the other two will be aswell
