Yes it's an obscene amount of content for 60$, more than you'd get from 99% of games. And it's a little niche but most people think it's fun.

The better question is, is the story satisfying? The answer is "not unless we get a sequel".

Woke up at six this morning and have been grinding non-stop until now. I find it fun for the combat and looking for ways to utilize damage. Some few select characters can be annoying but it's just their character. Land is alright but I personally find myself looking at my mini map and getting to the next probe sight rather than exploring (probe sight being you go to this area and put down a fast travel that can give you minerals/money)

It's the best game on the Wii U if that helps.

It could have been a legitimate contender for the best game of all time if Takahashi hadn't bumblefucked up and cut out half of the plot to add some shitty uninteresting online mode.

I beat the main storyline in less than 80 hours, I'm level 53 and don't know what to do now, every time I start up the game I just turn it off because I feel like I'm done with it, like it has no more rewards to offer.

Does this game constantly throw a million useless items at you like the first game? The materials inventory was limited and you rarely knew which ones are worth keeping for a later quest or something.
>>
>>323319193
Definitely worth $60. Content is insane, but the story lacks closure. It's to be expected when they introduce an entire new world and they focus on a few things at best. First game had everything covered, but stuff remains a mystery here and doesn't quite add up if you think about a few things. Even then, it's a very fresh game in which you'll find yourself doing lots of stuff before going on with the story, easily making beating the game 50-100 hours. I do suggest trying to get all the probes/get some decent survery% before using skells.

>It's not as good as Xenoblade and Xenogears but better than Xenosaga.
>combat is great until chapter 7 where you learn Overdrive and it breaks the game if utilize right. Skell/Dolls are braindead easy. Too many playable characters you won't use and are pointless as most play the same.
>story is mediocre where basically nothing happens besides Ch.1 and Ch.12. Not as creative or interesting as XB or XG as all the story content was rushed out the ass. Your created MC is there and is just nonexistent. Normal missions are the real meat of the game, while basic missions are google missions where you try to find tier-5 rarity items. Also Tatsu aren't no Riki.
>OST is great but the sound designers fuck upped real hard. During some cutscenes you can barely heard what the characters are talking about and they use the same songs over and over.

>>323327427
I beat the game at 80 hours. Mainly because I wasn't sure if my skells would be fine at the final boss. It would include grinding and get a lv.50 skell...but I got neither when I beat the game. Had just done some extra exploring and quests. For now, I'm just going up on getting the survey rates up. Looking for treasures and tyrants I can kill. A little bit sick of doing lots of quests and gather collectibles. Hoping to get enough free reward tickets for the Ares 90. Also, getting your probes up will work aswell. I got most of them on foot except just half of them like that on cauldros. Was fun looking. 100 hours in now...still havent hit 60. Also bringing along randoms for affinity.

I hope you enjoy being forced to do side missions where you search through a massive open world to find a tiny piece of item with 5% chance of spawning in a secret area surrounded by overleved monsters.
People used to call Xenoblade a offline mmorpg, but with Xenoblade X its really true.
If you can get past those parts of the game, you might find the fun and interesting part.

So I just lock-on to some monster and press A and the game does itself? Why is it so addicting?

skell fuel, not done many of those miranium quests myself so I don't know if they eventually become worth it and are regular. Try finding him yourself, hes around the middle part of the manon ship

It's a single player MMO like people say when they shit on it but I don't think it's a bad thing. Basically a huge world like in MMOs, ton of stuff to do like in MMOs, fighting huge bosses like in MMOs with similar combat but not having to deal with idiots who don't know how to play.

Basically if you like hunting things, completing quests and exploring a BIG world this is for you.

I play a G Buster Verus and don't have fuel issues, often coming out of the battle with more fuel than I had. Skell fuel just isn't an issue. About that Ma-non, what's their name?

I'm not gonna say its bad to avoid triggering Nintenbabies so lets just say I wouldnt have bought the game at full price if I knew how it actually was.
Nott hat Jewtendo ever drop their prices anyway.
>>
>>323319193
How is that even a question if you have a Wii U and like RPGs. It's not like that system has more than a handful of nice stuff.

The only reason I haven't bought this is because Dragon's Dogma and Blade & Soul both come out this month and I'm going to try those for free and see if I like them enough to leave Xenoblade X for later.

>>323328004
>has major pop-in issues even if you download the data packs
Holy shit this, it improved asset loadtimes byaybe 3-5 seconds on average. Considering that it was originally 20-30 seconds, the data packs are useless. You'd think the packs would help with the whole "my Wii U is a fax machine" issue but nope, nothing.
This game REALLY shows how underpowered this console is.
>>
>>323333548
The story in this one is garbage, and the main cast (Elma, Lin, Irina, Gwin, Doug) are extremely boring. The side characters are pretty funny and interesting though. HB, Nagi, and Yelv are bros.

More like the g-buster prevents Skell combat during a story playthrough from being a total snooze-fest.

It'd take forever to kill the Ch. 10 boss and Vita without it.
>>
Combat sucks. I hate Soul Voices. You can't play defensively at all, every fight is just a DPS check. TP generation is too low and doesn't feel balanced. Unless you give your moronic party members no TP arts or have Irina be a TP bot with ramjet, they will never revive you. Combat just feels like both you and the enemy are just attacking air.
>>
Game has problems but it kept my attention for the 80 hours it took me to beat the story.

That's way more than I can say about most games.

The pacing is pretty great until you learn to fly. It seems like there's always something around the corner to work towards that you're looking forward to unlock.
