This is a Wii U game, let's worry about how Nintendo will handle the online play.

NO MIC CHAT TO OFFER THE SMOOTHEST ONLINE PLAY POSSIBLE SO COMMUNITIES OF NERDY HERMITS CAN PLAY IN SILENCE

Nintendo is a family company, Taiyz.

I was making fun of their excuse for SSB lacking voice chat.

I'm aware, but I would prefer it if Nintendo Network doesn't turn into another Xbox Live community just from Smash's toxic players.

On-topic: Why are the character models...faces, rather, so awful? I haven't seen the face models hit the "extra desu" mode since Xenosaga 1.

That's because the characters were designed by Kunihiko Tanaka, who designed the characters in Xenosaga 1.

Oh really, that's cool. I actually quite like the character designs of this game, makes me a bit sad that there's no real protagonist.

My argument is that, if their concern was netcode, they easily could've enabled an on/off switch before hosting an online session. Obviously I don't think Nintendo wants voice chat available in all their games either (I think in MK8 both players have to enable the voice switch to hear one another) but there are REALLY simple solutions that Nintendo's excuses do not answer by any means.

Also you need to realize that Xbox Live itself is not toxic, competitive gaming is in general. The FGC is super supportive but you'll still see the occasional screencap on Reddit of randoms in Street Fighter throwing out slurs. This is unavoidable, you'd be seeing the same stuff if Nintendo had an unobtrusive messaging system; Miiverse is too heavily moderated and requires you to temporarily launch another application and then search by NNID...

The fact that I need external software like Skype to host a match with friends only and talk to them, is honestly super ridiculous for this day and age.

Toxic behavior is contagious sadly. High stress competitive gaming(such as from FPSes or MOBAs)can make the "kinder" players build up frustration that is often expelled in further competition, and do it so much that it just turns them into a general douchebag.

Also: how many of you(that don't have doll fetishes at least)get off on this?

I think I read a comment somewhere saying the faces in the first Xenoblade were better. To which I say no. No they weren't. The faces in Xenoblade were a blurry, low-res mess that only vaguely resembled faces, because the Wii's crappy processing power was mostly spent on amazingly beautiful and ridiculously HUGE environments.

Xenoblade X will likewise be more of the same, but with a lot more power to throw at rendering faces and environments both. So it looks better overall, but there's clearly still a bit of an issue with the faces.

I agree with that logic. What's funny is that the New 3DS version of the title will look worse overall.

Edit: The very pic I posted reminded me of the Star Ocean 3D character designs. God dammit.

Have you guys seen the Xenoblade Chronicles 3D trailer? Shulk's face looks like it's melting:

I like messing with the texture options/slider in games with characters that try to look pretty, but that is just down right funny.

Before my body is dry, it is ready.

This video hyped me. The new combat mechanics seem interesting and will be fun to play with. Hope that enemies don't necessarily kill you before Recasting happens or, the battles become Art heavy by end game (Riki was the only character I played who was Art heavy due to being a status effect playstyle).

Next vid will be about the Dolls/Mechs.

When does a Wii U go on sale? Boxing Day?!

I had suspected this game to be the offspring of Star Ocean and PSO.

This is a series that lets you wear swimsuits as armor so I'm not surprised they have something like that.

I might be a hypocrite, but I'm fine with swimsuits as those are, you know, swimsuits. I just don't agree with the protection they offer, but okay. At least everyone is treated somewhat "equally" in the swimwear department.

Putting full scale heavy armor on a man and bodypaint on a woman as corresponsding armor sets... That's a bit much. At least give the man bodypaint as well and remove the armor for good measure.

What complaints? Is there no voice chat? Can you not play with friends in free roam or do no missions, only specific activities?

The asynchronous stuff I read about today regarding the Squads and such sounded very positive. Being able to hire your buddies as AI reminds me of Dragon's Dogma, too.
