arise: (final fantasy ♥ the new regime)
Kinda broody over personal problems. Can't really be helped, but is an annoying situation that needs to be navigated. (Might elaborate later.)

Played about seven to eight hours of Xenoblade Chronicles. It's pretty fun - I see why people compared it to an MMO. The quest system could be a bit more elegant (a sidepane would be great), but it could also be a hell of a lot less elegant (hello ME3), so I'm happy with what I've got. Lost interest in the actual storyline awhile ago, but it's a fun enough game to mess around with and grind. It satisfies my primal need to faff about in a nicely-rendered environment completing endless fetch quests. Though I must say, it makes a stellar case for why equipment shouldn't be individually rendered. I've gotten to the point where the best equipment makes everyone look incredibly stupid all the time.

So yeah, it's fun. I'm not sure if I'll ever actually finish it, depending on how long it goes, but definitely good fetch quest fodder. I wish it was on something other than the Wii - it'd be great to see those graphics in proper HD. The environment design is great!
