    I like the idea of this series, but the whole self-flagellation shtick (i.e. but my taste is clearly horrible, this game I love is obviously poop pressed onto a disc) wears thin pretty fast. I realize...

    Glad you enjoyed it. I really liked it too. The bit at the end was moving for me, but I was especially impressed by the mileage they managed to get out of such simple controls. Looking back, I am floo...

  • Encephalon posted a message in the forum topic Xenoblade Chronicles X - 40 minute demo from Treehouse on the Xenoblade Chronicles X board.
