    Very nice some people are streaming on youtube, was checking the local shop y'day and they did not carry it sometimes they stock it when it comes in but not y'day it seems.

    Mine not made it to the post office either. still it seems not to bad to wait a couple of days ...

    Final Rare Blade revealed, and it's a really cool callback.

    No idea what the text says, no idea what the video says (I have no audio right now)... but what the hell is KOS-MOS doing there?
    Namco called and said they wanted their IPs back.

    It does, they haven't revealed anything DLC related yet. Although it's probably a very late game Blade, if I had to guess.

    I would be happy if Namco used this opportunity to release some Xenosaga collection HD for the Switch, an easy cash-in riding on Xenoblade, my wallet is ready as I said (and I like to daydream).

    PS: Certainly not attached to SONY, they released 1+2 on the DS, just not in the west.

    Well, first of all, I would highly suggest playing at least the original game, it's fairly easy to get on the WiiU VC or 3DS. It's not in any way related to the new game, but it's still a great experience.
    But I hope you enjoy 2 as a standalone regardless.

    My review should be live later today if you want some insight from somebody who's been playing it for nine days already.

    The review embargo is lifted and it is getting very good scores. The lower scores seem to be from people who have problems with some typical jrpg elements.
    I can't wait to get my copy tomorrow! :yayswitch:

    I wanted to complete Xenoblade X before my copy of 2 arrived, but that won't be possible.
    I need to sleep. And then work, and when I come back sure X2 has arrived, and then I will want to play it. And X will be forgotten. Damn.
    Well, what can I say, the pinnacle of first world problems.

    I got the collectors editor for XC1 and XCX, but I think this time I'll pass.
    it's always nice to have a collector edition, but I never "use" it (read the artbook/listen to CD) and don't particularly like metal boxes (it's breaking the aligned box size's on the shelf).
    XC1 it was more for the controller, and XCX because I didn't had the choice :P

    if XC2 had the controller bundled with the collector edition I think I would have bought that one.
    not sure if the classic controller is really needed for that game.

    I'll buy the console in today, I hope they will have Xeno too.
