Xenoblade Chronicles studio to wow players with challenging

I hope they don't want to be completely like Bethesda, or we'll have to suffer through tons and tons of bugs.

@Fidu, very true, I think they could learn a lot from Bethesda but I hope they don't become them completley. Like you said Bethesda's games are full of bugs that often makes them unplayable and I find games like Skyrim almost completley devoid of character, it's a great game but quests and characters were just monotonous after a short while, this is why I prefer Zelda to TES, though TES does a number of things better, tLoZ always seems more involving and has more character development. to me quality means more than quantity. Anyway, back on topic, I'd love to see what Monolith is working on, sadly I haven't yet played Xenoblade chronicles but I hear nothing but praise for it. I can't wait to see what it'll be like! also, I just checked their website, now I don't know much Japanese but, I saw words like "WII U soft[ware]" and 3DS project so all you Monolith fans out there, looks like there's a lot to look forward to.

whatever they come up with i'm sure it'll be great
with how Xenoblade ended i personally don't think it needs a sequel
One thing i would like to see though is a HD remake of Xenosaga, it never made it over here to Europe and I would love to play it as it is often credited as being just as good as xenoblade
i will fight for:
. good reviews
. the next ONM mag
. smash bros on the 3DS
. pikmin 3
. the last bowl of pasta

This is great news! my review: viewtopic.php?f=7&t=95729 shows how much I liked it, also, they're working on a 3DS title too? Still, will check all news on this! :D

It doesn't sound like a Xenoblade prequel / sequel, but I'll definitely take a look at i when more info is announced.

Sounds great!

Sidenote: I haven't yet played Xenoblade, is it worth it? I'm a fan of RPG's but my concern is that the battle screens look awfully cluttered (with icons and numbers everywhere!)
My Youtube career kinda ended, so...I really have nothing to put here anymore...

They could release a HD remake of Xenoblade with full GamePad functionally and Miiverse support and I'd buy it tomorrow and spend another 100+ hours on it. A brand new game is definitely something I'm interested in.

Yes, but if you have a world so big of course there are going to be bugs. It's quite a miracle there are so few, for a game as large as TES games.

I imagine it might not be a new Xenoblade game now that Melia's VA has attained the dizzying heights of being Dr Who's new assistant. But wowing is a good objective so er... go ahead and "wow" me!
