I really need to play Xenogears eventually. Though, someday I hope they're able to release a complete Xenogears, considering what I know happened to that game's story.

Bioshock is 10 years old. Let's play through its horrific environment and see why its so beloved!

@kkslider5552000 it's not like they made the stuff and cut it out of the game, disc 2 is the final product.. they would have to remake the game which is not going to happen.

lol why not

I mean, if they WEREN'T owned by Nintendo and/or SE wasn't releasing exclusives on Switch, I'd agree. But I could legitimately see this happening as a Switch exclusive. What, is it because it would be too ambitious? For Monolith Soft? Pfffffffffffffft. And considering they got their "currently relevant Nintendo IP" out so soon, they have plenty of time if they want.

Now, I'm not saying this will happen (in fact, I doubt it), but as long as Nintendo pays for it and SE approves it, it could very easily happen if they wanted to. I'm pretty sure Xenogears sold better than the previous 2 Xenoblades anyway...

So I've just played the first three chapters and can already see the xenostory potential, this is gonna be good!

I'm wondering how I'm going to get those better looking blades with all their awesome specials and all that. I know I need luck but is there like, a bare minimum statistic? Guess I'll find out, so far this is one awesome game.

Really enjoying the game so far (at the beginning Chapter 4). But what‘s bothering me a bit is that whenever I use Skip Travel, the game loads like a second or two and then throws me into the world with barely any textures loaded until a few seconds later. I‘d rather have waited a few seconds more than this. Frankly, it takes me out of the experience a bit. Kinda like in Tales of Xillia 1 and 2 where you‘d travel somewhere, walk around for a few steps and only then would NPCs load in.

A truly incredible game, one of my favorite RPGs, maybe the best Xeno game for me.. And yes I love almost all of them, for different reasons. (Xenogears always wins for nostalgia, of course, and because I played it at the perfect age, like 13-14ish.)

One thing I want to point out to no one in particular is that the core crystal system is smart and only a "gacha" if you view it from an entitled perspective. What I mean is that the alternative would require the completion of rigid goals: either finding every treasure chest, completing every side quest, extensive salvaging, or taking down every unique monster to acquire the blades.

Instead this system allows the player to focus on whichever goal they prefer while accumulating crystals the whole time, granting freedom to the player rather than coralling them. So I bristle when people assert that this system is somehow spiteful when actually it respects the players choice of gameplay.

That said, I also don't care if I find every blade and in fact appreciate the variety the blade system encourages. But even viewing it from the stance of a completionist, I don't see how this system is worse than forced quests or grinds.

Sorry for the double post, but a unique joy the Xenoblade games give me is that they grant significant freedom to scale obstacles you are clearly not supposed to until you get to a spot that seemed inaccessible. In these exclusive locations you can witness some of the greatest views and peculiarities, like the cloud sea glitching in and out if existence.

For instance I can almost make it to the branch hanging over Torigoth, it just requires some adept branch walking and jumping.

Later I will try to find a few screenshots as examples, but you can find that XC2 is uniquely beautiful even when effects like fog are glitched, maybe even moreso in some cases.

This game is incredible. I've had so much fun playing it, and although I liked Xenoblade Chronicles X, having a well-developed protagonist again is great. I've loved unlocking the various rare blades (I've unlocked three so far due to goods luck and use of boosters), and have really enjoyed the plot.

The beginning of the plot moved a little too quickly for my taste (Hey baby I just met you how's about I help you on your life or death pilgramage) and I don't like how the game autosaves when you attempt to unlock a new blade, but other than that it's amazing.

@Kogorn733 Considering Rex was literally dead when Pyra asked him to escort her to Elysium, it doesn't seem like he had too many options open to him.

Actually, he has 2 more reasons to escort her wherever she wants... booooobs😁

You make two very good points.

And I've said it before but I really love the character design in this game. It's unique as everyone is radically different and stylish.

I'm going to try to get some of those rare blades, as the default metals ones seem subpar to me.

I would have preferred fewer blades, all of which have unique designs. The normal blades are incredibly boring on a design level.

But yeah, the characters are all lovely looking in this game. I didn't think I'd like Rex's design when I first saw him in the trailer, but I'm OK with it at this point.

Ya. I thought the pants looked a little weird the first time I saw the game.

But now that I've played the game and I have context, knowing that he is a salvager with a scuba diver like suit... now it all makes sense and it actually looks pretty rad imo.

Now I look at it and I absolutely love his outfit. He's got to be the most likable and well-designed character in the entire series.

Got sidetracked with the Zelda DLC. Beat the first enemy camp and shrine... but then decided to save and quit. If I played Zelda I want to really get invested, and I don't really have time to do that without spending all weekend on it, which I don't want to do because the Monster Hunter demo is this weekend and, I need to finish Xenoblade 2 before it releases come January 26th.

So I'll tuck the Zelda Champion's Ballad in my back pocket for a rainy day. Which to be honest, that's one heckuva rainy day fund to have.

@JaxonH I'm in the same boat, I'll actually see the Zelda stuff later.

I'm too invested in this game to stop playing it now. Even nine parchments has to wait a bit...

I'm going to wait and incorporate the Zelda DLC content into an almost complete second playthrough next year (almost complete because, once all of my inventory spaces are open, I'm not worrying about tracking down any more korok seeds). For the immediate future, my Switch is going to be a Xenoblade 2 machine.

Can anyone help with this? Spoiler block links to an Affinity tree element of a super secret Blade.
