Y'really should look in the options screens, I've mentioned this a few times about the Japanese version since launch.

It's auto attack on default.

Set it to manual. :wink:

If you've got a half decent PC you could always download dolphin and use that. It's just like having a wii but in HD.

It really was Nintendo who asked them to follow a romantic theme.

And I don't really think that's a bad thing, as long as you take it for what it is.
I mean I also don't search for deeper meaning in Disney Movies, yet enjoy watching them from time to time for their lightheartedness.

Sakaguchi has always done romance, I expect it on some level in his titles.

Been playing today and I must say I'm impressed more than I was with the Japanese version last year, Thing's are ever so slightly different.

Calista, Zael and co are weird name replacements for Kanan, Elza etc... but that's not what I mean;
Nintendo/Mistwalker have tarted the graphics up with more post processing in the environments than was there initially, More Reflections/Refractions on water, Less compression on some cutscenes overall and rain effects bouncing off the camera in certain places that were missing entirely just over a year ago.

Nice.

The voice cast is the Xenoblade firm, Dunban narrates the tale, though i like Jackal/Lowell the smooth Jock. He's cool.

There are no frame rate issues or stuttering if you play it off a USB hard drive. Since there probably won't be any more Wii System updates, you might as well go the soft-mod way and enjoy the benefits of fast loading times and better performance from games like this. It's pretty foolproof to do these days too. Then you just pop in your game disc and have it ripped to your USB drive.

As for The Last Story, it's absolutely fantastic. I originally bought a Wii on day one under the illusion that there would be tons of Last Story-like games for it. Turns out we had to wait until the very end of the Wii's life cycle to get some. Well, with this Xenoblade and Skyward Sword, I can finally say I'm glad I bought a Wii.

Even if there are its not like you need to update the wii to play anything on it. I haven't updated mine in over a year and it still runs everything fine.

I agree with soft modding it though. i did mine a while ago and have been reaping the benefits ever since. Being able to import the full fat No more heroes was worth it by itself.
