I honestly can’t remember the last time something like this happened, if at all. I’ve managed to finish two games -- two GREAT games, I might add -- within about a day of each other. Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance and Xenoblade Chronicles are both notches on my belt now, and it’s only natural that I give them both proper Let’s Discuss posts. Problem is, I don’t know which one to tackle first.
On the one hand, I’ve been putting Xenoblade off for months now (for reasons I still can’t explain (besides laziness)), and having finished it I feel like I need to go over bits and pieces of it. On the other hand, Revengeance is so damn good that even if it is on the short side, I’m already thinking of playing through it again…and since finishing it, the game’s been on my mind for an almost-unhealthy amount of time. Either way, both games are much-needed respites from schlock like Final Fantasy 13-2 and DmC, and have helped give my palate a full scrub-down. And it’s quite possible that these games -- one or even BOTH -- are good enough to make it into my personal and currently hypothetical Top Ten. The only way to know for sure is to get these things written up and posted here on Cross-Up.
But which one gets the first swing? Well, I think I’ll leave that up to you all.
Here’s what we’re going to do. Whoever comments first on this post gets to decide which game will get a Let’s Discuss post first. What will it be? One of the greatest JRPGs of this generation? Or the action game primed to become one of 2013’s best? It’s all in your hands, readers -- so make it count!
Decide the destiny! FIGHT!
