I just started playing Xenoblade Chronicles about a week ago and I'm hooked! Unfortunately, I'll be going out of town for 10 days and I was hoping to find something like Xenoblade Chronicles to take on the road.
The story doesn't matter as much as the game play because for whatever reason it has me hooked. (although a good story would be great too)
Does anybody have a recommendation or two? Thanks!
Final Fantasy XII is the only game that has somewhat similar gameplay. FFXII has more customization for combat strategies, but the gameplay is slower and the world is smaller. It's a lot like an offline MMORPG... But stuff doesn't take as long as in a real MMORPG.
Xenoblade took some things from that concept (FFXII), and focused on making it faster and easier to play. Basically, they managed to translate that concept to a console RPG much better than FFXII did.
