RPG Site gave it a 9, and RPGamer gave it 5/5. Which both have me really hyped, especially a lot of what they touch on in their reviews. Excellent story, likeable characters, great music, deep battle system, more substantial and consequential side quests. Plus the recent KOS-MOS blade reveal on Nintendo's YouTube channel.

My LE shipped too. :toot: Hopefully the snow won't delay it. Really looking forward to digging into this over the weekend, and probably over Christmas and into the New Year.

Might pick this up while I'm in New York if it's cheaper than in the UK.
Was thinking of going digital but I've not got an SD card yet and waiting to spot a good deal on a 128GB or 256GB one. Skyrim means my internal storage is down to about 5GB and I think this is about 13-14GB digital. Doesn't seem much point just getting a 64GB card.

I've only played a couple of hours so far but this is already shaping up to be something special. I really need to download the original audio patch though, can't stand the English cast. :lol:

There was a developer interview in a Japanese magazine the other day where they said it had been in development for over 3 1/2 years. For some reason, when it was announced, people were assuming development started when the Wii U entry finished, which led to people saying it wouldn't make it's release date. Even though at no point was there any sign of it slipping.

I know I said I was leaving the thread but the Gonintendo review is pretty damn good for those who are worried about the combat and have found it intimidating in the previews.

Oh no, local Argos have it in stock as well. Maybe a pricing error but maybe not...

Not sure if good idea yet with Zelda and Skyrim to get through, maybe save it if start of next year on Switch is a bit barren.

Just ordered at Argos, at that price it's a hugeeeeeeee bargain for 100 - 200 hours of game play.

Had no intention of getting it but the price and the reviews have really sold me. Doubt it'll take even get started until after Christmas but I'm happy it's ordered.

I think that’s for the USA version from a markeplace seller, ‘Zilla - the UK/Euro version is still available at £42.

The game certainly does look good :) .

Might be worth checking Argos this evening around 8pm. If stock is reserved but not collected then it gets released once the stores close.

Wasn't going to bother with XC2, but had to grab it at that price. I have flights to Australia at Christmas, so it'll keep me busy then.

Sounds like a plan.

If anyone has access to buying a 2nd copy then I'm happy to reimburse you for the postage and inconvenience.
