    Oooh interesting. Itíll make it much harder to dig into the game files (and pirate them) if theyíre kept online.

    I've put about 30 hours into Xenoblade Chronicles 2 now:

    Story/Art direction: So far I'm enjoying the story and art direction. There's definitely some JRPG/Anime tropes that can be a bit cringey at times, but overall it's mostly charming. There's a good mix of drama and comedy.

    Gameplay: Personally I really like it... it seems like a more organic modernization of turn based systems, and has a pretty robust combo setup on top of it. That being said, it is relatively complicated so it can be overwhelming if you see the battle system without playing the game first. The game does a really good job of easing you into each part of the system, to the point where I'm just now unlocking access to every part of it 30 hours into the game. You'll be familiar with one function by the time it introduces you to a new function.

    Graphics: Mixed bag. The art style and world design are absolutely great. The game has pretty decent lighting and material effects (though static shadows). Textures are generally pretty clean and detailed. Resolution, though, is where the game struggles. 720p in docked mode, and in the 400p-500p region for handheld most of the time. It can look downright low resolution at times in handheld mode. That being said, its never so bad that it takes away from the game, it's just disappointing and hopefully they can patch it up.

    Overall I'm really enjoying it, but it's definitely not a game for everyone. If you liked JRPGs from the 16/32bit era, you'll likely really enjoy this. If you are more the action RPGer, or don't enjoy RPGs at all, stay away.

    Fantastic news: Bayonetta 3 was announced today, is a Switch exclusive, and Bayonetta 1&2 will be making it to the console in Feb next year.

    Nintendo has confirmed that it has sold 10 million Switch units as of December 10th. This is roughly on-par with the first year sales rate of PS4, and a bit faster than XB1, which took 12 months.

    This has doubled the initial 5M projected to sell at the 12 month mark. Itís not hard to imagine them outselling WiiU by March, once pre- and post-Xmas sales are taken into account.

    Not bad for a little machine that apparently had no games at launch, and was apparently overpriced to buggery.
