I'd like to make an HD game that will wow the players. I want to show that Japan can still keep up with the USA when it comes next gen technology. Our goal is to become something like the developers of the Fallout series, Bethesda Softworks.

This is Monolith's quote regarding their upcoming game. In your opinion, have they achieved this? Are they close?

I don't consider Skyrim to be "pretty", but Monolith's X looks better in many ways

Skyrim might be the only Bethesda game I've "liked" even a little bit.

That monolith game looked great.

I don't know, I wasn't as visually impressed as many here seem to be. But visuals has extremly seldom been important to me so might be that.
I need to know much much more about the game before I can pass a fair judgement.
The biggest question mark for me atm is: Is it a mmo? or a single-player game with mmo end game (like White Knight Chronicles) or a single player game that seems to play like a mmo?
Other aspects that I need to know as well is how story drive then the game is. Now I have not played Xenoblade Chronicles, so can't make any assumptions out of that. or is it more a long chain of sidequests and grinding (like Kingdoms of Amalur)?
So in the end, I know way too little about the game to be able to either declare it the new messiah of jRPGs or just shrug it of as a game simply not for me.

Thus new game is gonna suck. It doesn't even look good. The graphics aren't all that. 0/10
