Xenoblade looks AMAZING on my gamepad, but on the tv... good lord :(

It's resolution. Only two things you can do. Play on a smaller HD TV which may improve the picture a lot or a little depending on how big your TV is now and what you consider ugly, or play on an SD TV and the game will look as intended.

I wish I could find Xenonblade and not have to pay 100+dollars for it online.

I think that through the process of sending stuff to the game pad, they get Anti Aliasing treatment, which makes them look much better.

Couldn't agree more. Chalk another one up for the Wii U's "weak" column.

Indeed. You'll find that this kind of feigned bs has been going on since the US release of the game. Even before and during the whole 'Gamestop' thing, there were topics galore "OMG! I can't find a copy for under $10,000!" despite the fact that many people (often in similar locations) stated that they'd had very little trouble finding a copy for $50-$60.

And putting that aside, to date the game has been readily available on most European eBay sites for approx the same RRP as when it was released here.

It really is quite pathetic the lengths many of those with even a passing interest in anything remotely Ninty related will go to overembellish, overexaggerate and, as this board/site has proven time and again, out-and-out lie about the fortunes of [Nintendo product XYZ].

Still, when you look at Iwata-san, Monsieur Fils-Aime, et al you gotta consider the source. Right?
