If you'd played the first two Xenoblade games and were gutted about the direction of the third, I'd absolutely understand you doing that.  I'm very invested in the series and, as a result, the direction of this game.  Hell, I was really keen on it from early shots! I hope I'm not being too negative for people - I'm just really really disappointed.

When people actually start playing it and commenting on it I'll duck out unless addressed.

We totally get it and I think a lot of folk would like them to be more like TTYD but it just seems like you are holding one hell of a grudge even though you know the series has moved on. I'm not saying you can't be disappointed that it's changed direction but given how everyone knows each others tastes in games around here it seems like it's something you could still have fun playing despite that.

Personally as you may have said Jas we might enjoy it still but I know when playing it's not what I want

I'd personally prefer a Paper Mario that had more RPG mechanics, but I'm still interested in what this one has to offer. I won't be picking it up for a while as I'm still deeply rooted in FFXIV for the time being, but for those that have picked it up, how's it looking so far?

I've been playing on my nephew's copy of the game and have been enjoying it. First time playing any Paper Mario game. The writing is gold. There have been some really creative and charming moments and it's really fun just exploring areas and interacting with stuff.

I don't mind the combat, but we'll see how I feel about it further on in the game. There are some neat aspects to it in how you can create desirable formations but it is pretty simple and easy.

The music and sound design is great. Pretty good production values from this game overall.

Exactly my thoughts. I've not laughed out loud at anything yet, but my smile is deafening. My favourite part has been exploring the areas and interacting with stuff, and I totally agree about seeing how my feelings about the combat change during the game. I was getting a bit scunnered with it at the first boss, but then those creative and charming moments happened and I started to enjoy it a bit more. 

I'm maybe about four hours in - so far, so good!

Credits are just rolling for me, wonderful game from start to finish. Definitely the best one since TTYD, though comparing things to that is a terrible idea as it’s a comfortable all timer.

I'd saw that you were playing it a lot. How long did it take you to reach the credits? I've only just beat the coloured pencils (not a spoiler I don't think, it's in all the trailers).

I reckon it was 15-20 hours, but I played it in a lot of smaller gaps so kind of hard to tell.

I've heard from Andy that this is definitely worth a go - how've the rest of you found it?

I’ve liked what I’ve played of it, and I agree it’s worth a go. The settings, story, characters and script are all enjoyable, the sound design is magic, and it’s a really pretty game to look at in motion. I don’t dislike the combat, so it’s not a game-breaker, but I wouldn’t be keen for them to repeat this battle system with Paper Mario & William’s Wish Wellingtons (or whatever the next one is going to be called, hopefully that).

I don’t sense that it’s a 15-20 hour game. I’ve been playing for around 8 hours, and I’ve only just beat the second boss. I’m taking a break from it as I’m not in a rush to finish it, but I’ll go back. It’s good stuff.

Nice one. I think I'll be checking out as one of my first post FFXIV game. Cheers for the write-up.
