Xenoblade Chronicles is launching on the Wii U Virtual Console in North America today. The role-playing game, which completed a world tour in 2012 after its Japanese debut in 2010, will cost just $20 on the eShop -- which is a hell of a lot...

Review in Progress: Project X Zone 2

I just popped an Advil because I'm dealing with some annoying pain right now. It's a pain that starts to sting right in the inside of my elbow as I try to stretch my arm out. I'm not unfamiliar with this pain, in fact we're old friends. We ...

Video Review: Xenoblade Chronicles X

Xenoblade Chronicles X is certainly one of those games that you probably have to see to believe, rather than simply just taking some stranger's word for it. The written review just doesn't do it enough justice in my humble opinion -- we ne...

 
Xenoblade review
When Xenoblade Chronicles was announced for localization on the Wii, my heart skipped a beat. While there are plenty of JRPGs to go around, the more the merrier, and I wouldn't pass up the chance to experience another Monolith Soft game. I didn't quite have the same reaction to Xenoblade Chronicles X at first, but it really grew on me over time.   read

Xenoblade Chronicles X
I've played MMOs with smaller zones than Xenoblade Chronicles X. The scale here is absolutely breathtaking, and a mite surreal once you realize that you're playing on the Wii U, where the development team couldn't even optimize the game on a single disc. Here's a few thoughts after spending a ton of time with the experience.   read
