Xenoblade Chronicles

Wow this game is amazing!

I just started playing it this week and I haven't been able to put it down. This game definitely deserves all of the praise it's been getting. Now, is it worth $100 used from ebay? No way! But it sure as heck would be worth Nintendo printing another few thousand copies or better yet an upgrade to HD for the Wii U. The game is fluid with wonderful animations, excellent music and a fantastic story.

I'll give it a few weeks to let the 'newness' wear off but I can see this easily becoming my favorite game on the Wii/Wii U!

I've been looking for that in the local shops for months, cant find a copy anywhere :(

I refuse to pay the stupid ebay price for it.

The "newness" factor of this game gives way only to fondness and eventually nostalgia (yes, I and tons of others feel nostalgia towards this game even though it's been out for just two years).

Had a Street Fighter signature for four years, but Crapcom doesn't deserve such recognition anymore.

Absolutely one of the best games so far this decade. Can't recommend it enough to people interested in RPGs.

It seems like it'd be so easy for Nintendo to just put the game on the eShop, unaltered. They really should do that.

It's definitely worth around $80 I'd say.

The game was $50 new so I don't think so. If they upgrade it to full 1080p HD visuals I would have no problem paying $60 on the Wii U. However, I would never pay $80-100 for a used standard definition game no matter how good it is.

It would require them to port it to the Wii U to put it on eShop, since the "Wii Shop" has a 40MB limit.

Yeah. I bought it at $50 at launch so I don't really think I'd pay more than that. But people who haven't played it should get it around $80 when it's their best chance for now. No one will sell it less than that I believe.

I've just stepped foot on Prison Island, but yeah, so far the game is incredible.
