    Xenoblade Chronicles X put me off this a bit.

    It was gorgeous but the battle system was laborious.
    What put me off (with X) was the four billion cut scenes as well as feeling the battle system wasn't adequately explained. I gave up well before I got to play with the skells.

    This looks different. I'll read the reviews before deciding a purchase.

    Direct didn't distill me with confidence. I also found the gameplay in X laborious and I can't see this being any different. I really need an Xmas game though and I've played everything else I want to play.

    I'm in. It'll be good for me to knuckle down and develop the discipline to commit to a very long game.

    Hoping skmeone gets me this for xmas!.
    Itís on my amazon wish list but my birthday is on the 3rd and release date is the 1st I think so the Mrs will probably assume it wonít be here on time and Iíll have to wait till Xmas to get it.

    I loved Xenoblade Chronicles, only just played it this year so hoping this is more of the same.

    Should really watch some coverage to make sure it is, but donít want to spoil the game.

    I donít think they have a choice but to explain the battle system in this because man... that menu u.i is... everywhere!

    Having said that people whom have played it at events say the battle system is pretty cool so letís hope it is easy to pick up.

    Not sure how I feel about the game though, Iím not that hyped for it and I actually wanted them to announce a hd remaster of the the first Xc and play that instead.Might wait till reviews drop before buying. I think Iíd be more up for it if I hadnít played FF12 a month or so back.

    In other words I probably still pre-0rder it 😂

    Oh and for those wondering the game will be 14gb in size.

    Oh come on! Just watched the direct, it's a JRPG wet dream. Boy becomes hero, damsel in distress, saving the world, thumping soundtrack, bizzare battle and "job" systems, randomly upgradable items, character "interactions", copious cutscenes.

    I may not play another game for months!

    re: battle system - i found the original one in XC hard to get into at the start, by the end i was waltzing through the game without any particular minmaxing. You didn't have to get into every single aspect if you couldn't be bothered.

    I'm not a huge JRPG player but I've pre ordered. It looks genuinely epic, should be another BOTW-esque explore-a-thon.

    I wanted a pro-controller too so I've shelled out the extra £5 for the XC2 one.

    @pratty

    BOTW is going to be shite compared to this.

    I'm just glad it'll have dual audio (albeit as free DLC), because the voice acting sounds horrendous. Well, at least the main character and the Nopon thing do.

    But the voice work in the first was brilliant... Haven't watched vids at all as I'm buying it based on the first one, but I assumed they'd keep it high quality.

    I liked the English voice acting in the original. It wasn't perfect, but it wad a nice change to the usual American stuff. I also prefer most western subs to the Japanese stuff as the women in particular can sound horrendous when shouting or exclaiming things.

    I put in my pre-order to day, i've watched a few vids over the last few days and thought why not?

    Gone against the grain of my digital purchasing habits this year and opted for the physical, the game size (14gb) is quite extensive. I think any thing in that range will be physical , the rest digital.

    Might take a week's break from gaming leading up to it, so that i'm nice and refreshed!

    I always just stick to English dubs in games, as I find them to be completely fine at worst, and often very, very good.

    This one sounds bad, though.

    Iím sure I heard different accents in the trailers, e.g. Scottish.
    Nothing as good as ďItís Reyn timeĒ though.

    Have they? I hope so personally as they're the one thing that's really grated with me in the clips I've seen so far. The hero has sounded like a right muppet.

    Is there any way to get a decent not RRP switch eshop code? I've got £20 in there after the PayPal offer but need another £30 to get this.

    I've preordered the vanilla edition. The recent preview videos of gameplay and exploration have sold me on the game.

    I want the LE but I don't have a Switch nor the spare cash so will just have to see how it goes pricewise when I eventually get one... I am a sucker for a decent length art book.

    Got the main game on pre-order. The limited edition, as fancy as it is, will just become tat that clogs up the shelves in a few years time.
