One of my bosses has been kind of interested. It's not quite from the Xeno(gears/saga) series, but in order to try and get more people excited, they added the Xeno- prefix to it.

Saturo Iwata changed the name to honor Tetsuya Takahashi for his hard work on the game. That doesn't mean the NTSC-U version won't be called Monado.

That's just designers being lazy. I'm surprised that there's no info on this game, yet it comes out in 2 months in Japan...

The two songs that have popped up on the Xenoblade website are amazing...just a few weeks ago, the soundtrack was revealed to be composed by Yoko Shimomura! (Kingdom Hearts, Super Mario RPG, Mario and Luigi Super Star Saga, etc.) I'm a big Yoko fan so I can't wait for this game to come out just for the music alone! XD

There are rumors that Shulk will be in Smash 4, so I thought I'd familiarize myself with this game. Check out some LPs/videos, and it looks pretty fun, particularly the battle system. It's pretty pricy going by eBay though. Did anyone else pick this up back when it came out?

I didn't when it came out, but I did buy it new some time later for normal price. At the time, though, I didn't have access to my Wii - I was just buying it while I could. I tried to play it in Dolphin, but without proper controllers and the fact that I was trying to bump the graphics up to obscene levels, I couldn't really play it. I need a more powerful computer. That game is *pretty* with the graphics turned way up.

A friend of mine loved it, and spent many, many hours on sidequests.

Which reminds me, there are a few Wii and GC games I still need to get.
