Xenoblade Chronicles – A Truly Astonishing Game

Xenoblade Chronicles-1

Fate and Destiny forged anew, the path to the future lies in today

Xenoblade came to a shock to me because before I knew it, I was completely engrossed in the game and found it extremely hard to not want to play the game. There is so much packed into the game that it actually becomes hard to find yourself becoming bored. From the collectable blue orbs, to the quests, to the story, to the characters, to the achievements, to the world, to exploring the massive world that exist in Xenoblade, to the amazingly handled combat system, every one of those things made the experience of playing Xenoblade so much fun. And without a doubt it is the most fun RPG I have played in the past year.

Oh FFXIII, How You Made A Final Fantasy Fan Out Of Me…

Final Fantasy XIII Wallpaper - Cast

Together and against it, they walk forward struggling against their Fates to create a miracle and make their wishes come true

Final Fantasy XIII is a great game and even with the criticism it got for its linearity, I still love it and it has become one of my favourite games I’ve ever played – thanks to it I’ve become a Final Fantasy fan =). Now I admit the game was very linear, but I didn’t have a big problem with this. I had played Final Fantasy III, Final Fantasy VIII, and some of Final Fantasy X-2 before I played Final Fantasy XIII, but I can’t remember being engrossed in those games. I was more just playing those games rather than also following it, which did lessen the experience I felt while playing them. You could say I was “relatively new” to Final Fantasy because I never truly got into the whole “Fantasy” aspect of the franchise.

I didn’t really think much of a Final Fantasy game and I certainly wasn’t expecting much from Final Fantasy XIII (Final Fantasy games to me prior to playing FFXIII just seemed like games to spend a ton of time on – 100+ hours, and I wasn’t really enthusiastic about spending that much time on a game). I got Final Fantasy XIII and decided to play it on a whim, and how surprised I was when I realised how really caught up in the game I was. The amazing cinematic sequence that introduced the game and main characters and the start right in the middle of the action did seriously grip my attention and begin to catalyst my nonchalant desire to play this game.
