Hey all! So literally just started this and found a lot of stuff/gifts/items in my menu under ‘expansion pass’ - examples include;

  • war chest contribution from Bana
  • gift from Mr Rurui
  • newbie drivers core crystal set
  • final item distribution list
  • dlc blade list; distribution 3
  • driver essentials
  • upgrade parts for poppi

Naturally all that makes little to no sense to me (and that’s a good thing!), just curious if anyone has experience with them/knows if they’re game breaking in any way? I hate pre-order/expansion stuff that gives you a headstart/unfair jump, not sure if this stuff is that or generally/legitimately helpful stuff i’ll use more as the game goes on? Any non-spoiler-y help gratefully received, even one liners!

@BrainOfGrimlock Nah. The biggest head-start you'll have is having access to more blades sooner than if you didn't start with a bunch of core crystals, which, trust me, is nothing that'll harm your experience with the game.

@BrainOfGrimlock As I remember there isn't anything in there that will break the experience. It will alleviate a little bit of the Tiger! Tiger! frustration and give you a few core crystals. That's it. Go for it.

Question for you guys if you know:
why does Minoth have gun daggers, but Cole gives Rex a regular dagger as his weapon to give to Amalthus?

My thought was that it would highlight Cole's degredation as a Blade with his um "condition". If I'm wrong, then cool factor.

Just finished Torna and wow. Just wow. I loved it all. Even knowing what was coming in the ending right from the get go, watching it all happen and then a bit of a curveball thrown in about something I had kinda forgotten about cause I thought it was done - Gort. I scrambled to pick up my Joycons I had set aside whilst watching the ending when I realized I was going to be controlling what was about to happen. The ending was great. Showed just enough about what happened and left just enough to fill in yourself, though XB2 is pretty well a requirement first as they left the parts out that were already shown in the main game, like where Jin and Loras journey takes them. Though....playing XB2 second would be neat to see those gaps filled in later already knowing half the backstory. I'd like to hear someones perspective who's played them in the opposite order - if it works as well that way.
Anyway, I love the Xenoblade 2 world and I'm so glad I got another 32 hours in it. I did pretty much everything, the only thing I didn't do was the golden bosses, because I am nowhere near being able to, even at level 65. But otherwise, did every quest, maxed community/affinities and found everything.
Before we knew what it was, I thought the expansion was going to be post-XB2, but I think this was much better. This was a great story to tell and I appreciate Jin and Mythra both in XB2 a lot more now.
My only gripes, which aren't gripes because this was an expansion so not as "full" (for lack of a better word) as the main game were that I missed being able to choose my blades/parties to switch things around and it was shorter than I wanted lol....I wanted to stay in the world longer I missed not having Poppi too
It would be nice to see some of the QoL improvements they made in Torna patched into XB2.

Anyways, I'm gushing. Love this world, love this game. I'm not usually one to get so very pulled into and captivated by a game world, but Xenoblade 2 is one of the few

I am a bit confused...this morning I got the Torna expansion in the mail. It contained a card with the game of course...but also a download code. For what exactly is the download code? It says quests and blades, so I almost suspect that the season pass is on it. When I use this code, how much memory-space does this content take up?

subpopz

@Henmii The code is indeed the season pass for the main game. XB2 is using 819MB on my Switch and it's fully updated.

@Grumblevolcano You'll need to progress a bit further through the story and all will become clear to you.

@Grumblevolcano @Hallonblad He knows. But there are none, the only things missable are the 3 sidequests. That's it.

Metroid, Xenoblade, EarthBound shill

Think I need another day or two (and maybe a short brainless game) to get RDR2 fully out of my brain (all the feels!), but just played through the first 45 minutes of XC2 and so far so good! No idea what I'm really doing but that's ok, only two standouts for me are;

Voice actors - I'm a dirty deserting Brit so I quite like the accents (so far), can't imagine they were/are everyone's cup of tea though?

Music - I've hardly got anywhere but man I'm really digging the music so far, love the theme in the big area/hangar/salvage yard place I was in (with all the shops I can't use yet?), really hope it carries on in the same vein!

Am excited to get going sometime this week anyway, been putting this series off (along with Disgaea) for far too long as a supposed JRPG fan!

@BrainOfGrimlock Take your time, the game will be quite time consuming. ^-^ Though enjoyable all the way through post game.

I tend to consume media in original language when possible, so I played the game in Japanese. i have heard the English voice acting though, and I know a lot of people complained about it (especially Americans) but it seemed fine to me. Loved the Welsh accent for Nia.

The music is the best. I presume you've only been to Goldmouth so far, just wait until you reach the next area. One of my favourite themes for sure.

I think - from one JRPG lover to another - that you are going to enjoy every second of this game. Especially if you don't mind the accents. XD

Is the season pass the same with the one sold in the Nintendo EShop for $30?

Ming316

subpopz

@Ming316 Yes, it is (the eShop price for the season pass includes the digital version of Torna).

@BrainOfGrimlock I'm Canadian and I liked the accents (tho, I also watch a fair amount of UK TV - 8 out of 10 Cats, IT Crowd and such, so I'm used to hearing them regularly). I did like that they weren't all just British either, some Scottish and Welsh in there too.

No worries, I'll definitely be savouring it as I go through! I'm procrastinating about playing it right now, I always do when starting a new RPG, mainly because I know once I get in to it I'll be completely absorbed until I come back up for air!

I like that they've used authentic accents at least - I literally cringe in programs/games/whatever when they get someone to portray an accent that they can't very well, like, why not get someone who speaks like that natively?

Will post more when I'm further in, like I say, still trying to flush away the post RDR2-ness!

@BrainOfGrimlock the voice overall really grew on me over time. Nice to see more regional English accents in a game and yeah I agree the music is top notch from start to finish I think you'll like it.

BrainOfGrimlock

@bluemage1989 yeah I like hearing them too. Wonder how much of an effect - if any - the positive reaction to Drippy's voice actor in Ni No Kuni has had on regional accents etc?

I remember the voices in Kingdoms of Amalur being pretty awful, think they were regional British ones? Examples of how to do things well/badly all over the games industry I guess

@subpopz thank you

btw anyone know how to get 50.000 points in Tiger Tiger ? Should I play it in normal mode? I've been trying it in easy mode and the best score I could get is about 30.000.
