I hope extreme Mode is actually extreme. I stopped playing what would otherwise have been a 100% file on NG+ because the difficulty was a complete joke.

Does anyone know anything about the "Brand new story content"-part of the expansion? Kinda hoping for some new areas to explore.

@Beluganator We know pretty much nothing outside of it releasing in fall 2018.

I am on the verge of completing this game, just started Chapter 10. Yet now gone on full side quest mode and trying to complete all I have so far (with some FAQ help for a few long ones requiring me to search across Alrest). Also want to nab that second crystal like blade.

On another note, I began to wonder if Nintendo may at some point planned to include Microtransactions in the game for the Core Crystal mechanic. I am having trouble figuring out why such a chance based mechanism was used when no chance to make more money. Don’t get me wrong, overjoyed no digital gambling is in the game but just felt so weird and wonder if it was yanked as the animosity towards the practice began to grow.

@FX102A There has been a lot of (especially japanese) games of late, that could have had microtransactions. Some examples here: Xeneblade (of course), Monster Hunter, Ni No Kuni.
I think japanese developers is more about creating the best possible experience for you. And what I've heard, Japanese people (in general) take a lot of pride out of what they have done, let's say a game.

@Caniswolfred I think you'll appreciate the references in the new Xenoblade DLC lel

I've honestly given this game a big break because I burned out on it. I think I went into NG+ too early. Fantastic game, but I think I'm gonna wait until the story DLC comes out to finish the new file. I've been neglecting Splatoon way too much!

@AlternateButtons Sounds fair, especially since there'll also be a lot of new Blades coming out too. That'll be the perfect time to jump back in.

@AlternateButtons I did the same thing. I think I'll wait until they've dished out the entire season pass before I continue my pre-emptive NG+

Well since I'm a shameless shill, I'll be continuing playing the game once 1.4.0 hits tonight.

Anyway, new sales figures for Xenoblade 2, at 1.31m units. It's now the best selling Xeno game, outpacing the old record of Xenogears selling 1.19m from the PS1! Speaking of, that's also another fantastic game, even if it aged pretty badly.

Hopefully Xenoblade 2 can eventually hit 1.5m by the end of 2018. But regardless, that makes me really, really happy to see.

Good to hear it's selling decently well. It's certainly the best Xeno game I've ever played (a massive step up from both previous Xenoblade games, for sure).

Anyway, current plan is to continue side-questing and leveling up affinity until I get to level 70, and then to continue the story where I left off and complete the game.

I'll probably revisit the game in a year or two after the DLC launches and complete it fully.

@Ralizah Better Xenoblade on all points but plot. I loved the story from the last one, but this was still an amazing tale

@8-Bit_Superman I hope you mean Xenoblade 1's story and not Xenoblade X's. Because as much as I love Xenoblade X (and prefer that over Xenoblade 1 or 2), it has the worst story out of all the Xeno games. Xenoblade 1's story is really good though yeah, though Xenogears edges it out depending on my mood.

That said, Xenoblade 2 has the best cast of characters, imo. Xenoblade 1's characters are awesome too and Xenogears' main protagonists (Fei, Elly, Citan, Bart) are the best written protagonists in Xeno, but the dynamic between everyone in Xenoblade 2 while just being fun really sells me on them more than anyone else in the series. Especially love Zeke, he's my favorite character in the game.

@EvilLucario Agree 100%. Yes, I did mean 1, as X didn't really cross my mind when thinking of story.

I still hope they port X over as the exploration in that game was absolutely amazing. My only gripe is the party system, I hope they add a more straightforward way to manage party members rather than having to track them down each time.

@8-Bit_Superman They could add a "change party members" terminal in NLA to make it easier to deal with. I didn't mind it terribly personally, though it seems like a really common complaint everywhere I go so yeah.

@EvilLucario I wouldn't say I mind it terribly, and realistically it made sense. Just in a game where everything takes forever anyway, adding that terminal to shave off a few minutes here or there would make a huge difference over time (to me at least).

It's a super long game, no need to make it longer if a quick fix can make it that much more accessible.

I caught that, thanks for the mention. I'm reminded that I'm getting ready to play through all of my Wii U games in alphabetical order, in preperation for getting a Switch either for my Birthday, unless I snag a good deal on Cyber Monday...hopefully Xenoblade 2 holds up, because I'll have 2 Xeno games fresh in my mind by then.

1.4.0 is out now!

T-elos' Blade Quest is pretty meh. Poppibuster's quest is meh as well. It's not bad, just underwhelming.

Also a PSA: a pretty nasty bug was introduced to 1.4.0 that will crash your game if you do this. Beginning of Chapter 10 spoilers: If you use Pyra + Nia's level 4 Special Art with Pyra (this does not crash your game if you use it with Nia), it will crash your game.

Putting that out there so you don't lose any progress.

@EvilLucario This is a stupid thing. Thanks for letting us know at least, hope they fix in in 1.4.1 or something like it
