    Wait, doesn't penultimate mean second-to-last?

    I'm trying to decide whether to import from Amazon.it or not. Ordering Xenoblade from there was painless. It automatically used my account credentials from Amazon.com and shipped for free if I wanted. I ended up ponying up extra for expedited shipping. The only Italian thing about the game was the manual. The entire game was in English, or really whatever language I wanted.

    And now that I'm thinking through this, I remember that almost all major games are printed in only a few versions, EFIGS being the main one. English, French, Italian, German, and Spanish text on one disc, usually with one spoken language.

    Hmm.

    Honestly want this more than Xenoblade. Seems a lot easier to pick up and finish, and I love the art design.

    Well, I was kinda stoked until I saw Europe only as of right now. So I'll do the same thing I did with Xenoblade at the time: cover my eyes and ears, and pretend it doesn't exist.

    I'm a lot more interested in this game than Xenoblade Chronicles.

    You guys should all pre-order like five so I can get it in the US faster.

    Thank the Greeks that the euro is tanking so badly.

    The pound isn't much better either! Many people got Xenoblade for less then the regular price of a Wii game in the states!

    I can confirm that the pound is apparently in the shitter. I ordered some BluRays from Amazon.co.uk and they were less than half the price they were on Amazon.com.

    They shipped to America, no problem. Maybe even for free, I don't remember. Anyway, it was awesome.

    Fixed that for you, philistine.

    Hell, might as well link the entire OST and be done with it. I hope the music to TLS is half as good as that, which it will be because, you know, Uematsu.

    Spoiler:

    Oh no, I know about that. That got a confirmed release at GameStop. But before than, that's what I ended up doing.

    Speaking of which, I gotta continue pretending this game doesn't exist so I don't care about it!

    More games should be released in Europe first. That way we get to hear more of those lovely British accents.

    I'm liking how Zael talks!

  • Xenogears of BoreXenogears of Bore Registered User regular
    The voices haven't quite grabbed me like Xenoblade's did, but of course I've heard maybe seven minutes of them talking versus over one hundred hours of Xenoblade!

  • ZephiranZephiran Registered User regular
    I'd say so far of what I've heard, Zael and Dragan have the best voices, hands down. Syrenne and Yurick both sound a bit "forced". That leaves roughly half of the main cast, some of the big name players and a few bad guys unaccounted for.

    You just know the big bad's going to sound awesome, however. I wonder if it's good enough to stand up to Metal Face?

  • ChenChen Registered User regular
    It's hard to top Norio Wakamoto. Arganan sounds deliciously evil though and you just cannot dislike Syrenne. I will fight you if you say otherwise!

    I usually don't like cute sidekick characters like this, but Riki is pretty awesome.

    I'm not a fan, mostly because outside of when you meet him, his relevance to the story is pretty nil.

    Oh, no doubt. I'd rather he wasn't in the game at all. But I consider characters like these to be pretty much a given in most JRPGs, so the fact that he doesn't interfere with the story is good enough for me. And he's amazing in combat.

    His gameplay role is really weird. They give him the HP of a tank but the attack power of a mage, along with a fuckton of buffs and debuffs and an AoE healing spell. It's like they had no idea what kind of role he should fill so they gave him several but not a master of any of them.

    Wii?

    God damn it, does that mean I have to dig that out and blow off the 9 inches of dust that accumulated on it?

    Oddly enough I did a count and it turns out that I have about five PS3 games, yet nearly two dozen Wii games... and this one sounds like it could be added to that collection.

    I talk about it maybe five or six times in the Xenoblade thread but his support roles and tick damage are second to none and his cooldowns are really fast too.

    He also has most of the good skill links that speed character growth.

    Being an Aussie gamer finally pays off! Aw yeah.

    Got my preorder in, haven't done that in a damn long time, but since every store will probably be getting approximately 2 copies of this, I am not going to miss out.

    Also, Nintendo website has some of the music up, pretty good stuff. http://gamesites.nintendo.com.au/the-last-story/en_AU/index.php#media_music

    Alright, I caved. Pre-ordered the Limited Edition.

    Anyways, here's a review in German that somehow seems to look prettier than Nintendo's own official trailers.

  • eobeteobet Registered User regular
    God damn, with Xenoblade and now this, it's rather sad that the Wii U won't upscale any games.

    Well, there are always those Wii2HDMI adapters, but considering I can get a component cable for a quarter of the price of on HD adapter, their pricing seems a bit steep. They're supposed to work alright, but I'm not sure if the device itself actually does any HD scaling.

  • agoajagoaj Avatar avatar avatar HD Avatar of the Year EditionRegistered User regular
    It makes me wonder how the Wii U is going to handle virtual console games over HDMI, which run at 240P. So it will probably do some kind of scaling, looking like one of those Wii2HDMI adaptors.
