Mother 3 is playable on the Wii via emulators so it's also the best Wii RPG ;)

Man, now that's REALLY cheating. May as well just call it best PC RPG of the last decade and call it a day.

Holy crap, I can't believe I am seven days away from finally playing this. :0

Also, just in time for me to finish up Kid Icarus and move most of gaming times towards this. I imagine this will be taking a lot of time that I should be using for studying away..... Not sure if that is a good or bad thing.

It met my expectations when I heard the main theme for the first time on the "press start" screen.

It seriously is amazing, but don't expect something mind blowing from the story.

You're too kind. ;)

If you've already installed homebrew, ask around this thread for the best GBA emulator. All you really need is the emulator and the patched ROM on your SD card and you're set.

Edit: And for anyone who hasn't already, there are plenty of great reasons to install the Homebrew Channel on your Wii. Use Clipper's guide:

Just hang tight till you get out of the first town/cave. Thats when I realized I was going to become permanently attaches to my chair for the next 114+ hours I enjoyed with this game.

This is the first time I've ever bought the same game three times from three seperate regions in the generation the game was released.

Also I was going to dig up my old post about gem crafting but it looks like you did the thing proper. Excellent op.

The Gamecube had both Skies of Arcadia Legends and the Baten Kaitos series so I would disagree as well.

I would rank them BKO>ToS>BK. In any case I would put ToS on par with Xeno, so clearly we both agree that the GC had RPG's that rivaled XenoBlade.

Wish I could pick this up on amazon.com or something, but I'll probably go to a gamestop this weekend and preorder it (guess I'll just have to put up with their shit just this once).

Also, I don't own a classic controller. Is it recommend that I get one, or does the wiimote and stick work fine?

Did consider Skies of Arcadia (though that's DC native...) and Tales of Symphonia, but I never stayed glued to SoArc to the end, and I found ToS good but not AMAZING, maybe because I played through Tales of Eternia very shortly beforehand. Never did get through BKO though, really ought to one of these days.

Yeah, the DS alone ensures there's enough strong competition there (though I don't think I liked any DS RPG more than Xenoblade), nevermind when you factor in Mother 3 from the GBA.

I'm expecting this to be the JRPG of the generation, GAF. Many of have you have made it to be like so, as well as people from other sites. Well, Lost Odyssey and Vesperia are up there for me - let's see how Xenoblade will stack up.

Do it. You won't regret it. There is enough content to last a very long time, and it's a great excuse to bust out the Wii. It also doesn't look too bad on an HDTV in 480p.

Mote'n'chuck work just fine, and some prefer it. There are positives and negatives to both schemes, check the first question in the FAQ in the OP for a slightly better explanation.
