It's been a while since I last played the game, but IIRC the fights against the really big enemies rewarded the players with scarcer materials for crafting skells or their parts? Those fights were visually single-player though — the times the players "defeated" the enemy in total determined if the mission was a success.

You know, I genuinely really like Xenoblade X's soundtrack, but any defense of it immediately dies when you are still hearing that god forsaken NLA day theme OVER ONE HUNDRED HOURS INTO THE GAME.

I remember getting so sick of like Delfino Plaza and Skyloft, this is so much worse. No one could possibly still want to hear this song after that much time. It is impossible.

@kkslider5552000 I never minded the NLA day theme, I thought it was pretty nice. I certainly preferred over the godawful Gaur Plains them from the first game.

@kkslider5552000: ...Wait, you got sick of Skyloft's theme? O_o The only time this happened to me in recent memory was when playing Metroid Prime. I got so sick of Magmoor Caverns....

I love the NLA theme (day and night).

When two of my Xenoblade X loving friends visited me, I put Xenoblade X on to show them my stuff and some tricks, and then the "Oh Oh - Ohuwohoo!" part kicked in, we suddenly sang along to it and we had some kind of combined realisation of how fun the track is. From this day on it was for each of us another top 10 track in the game. "I can't hear u, I can't see u!"

It is a great track! Of course, every track gets boring after 100 hours of listening to it, but after spending some months with other things and other music, I can easily listen to it again.
In-game, for me it's the sound of local NLA musicians, the last human band. It has a certain futuristic feel of mainstream music that keeps the last survivors happy.

Just saw an interesting article on Gematsu regarding an exchange with Monolith Soft's president.

4Gamer.net: Is there a chance that we will be able to play Xenoblade Chronicles X on other hardware in the same way that Xenoblade Chronicles 1, which was released for Wii, was released as a New 3DS title?

Tetsuya Takahashi: Personally, since there are times that I happen to want to play Xenoblade Chronicles X, I get the feeling that it would be nice to play on Nintendo Switch. Of course, that it something I will think about while discussing user demands and future plans with Nintendo.

While I would wholly welcome this, I better be able to transfer my 800+ hour save with a NG+ mode in tow. A music selector would also be appreciated.

I love this game, and I've been listening to the music since XC2 is out tomorrow. I hope we get XCX 2

Part of the Affinity problem seems to be that I unintentionally didn't do/unlock a ton of town quests, based on how many I'm still finding. I'm not sure how much of that is just side quests unlocking more sidequests and how much of it is sidequests being unlocked right at this point in the game. Despite that, no way I'm doing the 4 heart Affinity Missions, because I want to play other games someday. Hopefully I'll finally beat this game in the next week.

On a sidenote, I did find that the Ganglion base in west Primordia has been a great place to level up. The flying ships in that area are still higher leveled than me, and it's been a good way to level up quickly, and especially level up lower leveled party members.

I just started playing this game and I am only on chapter 3 I think. It has been satisfying seeing beasts that I would see starting off that were so hard and now being able to tackle them.

I love exploring, but definitely felt overwhelmed with the all of the different menus you need to navigate for leveling up skills, arts , soul voices, etc....

Any tips are appreciated. Also any explanation of how the online component works would be fascinating, or is it all shutdown now? I keep seeing new people joining my division and earning stuff and meeting random people in the field. Are those real players or NPC for both?

@JohnBlackstar I believe those are real people. Everyone plays separately on their own WiiU but in the bottom right or left of the screen it shows "squad tasks" which is usually killing x number of certain types of monsters or finding items. It tallies up the contributions of each squad member. In your barracks there is a terminal for online stuff that I didn't do much with other than to "obtain division spoils" which gives you free stuff for your team winning at something (not really sure when that happens.)

I only have one chapter left. I'll still do some more quests (and Affinity Quests depending on how many 4 heart Affinity partners I have now/soon), but it will soon be over. Thank Meyneth for that.

Good luck with the final boss. There's a nasty surprise waiting for you there.

I bought a new Skell just because this boss was too difficult for me. Well after failing to the same boss for 30 minutes (and with Elma and Lin in their Skells too) for this one Affinity Mission, that's FIVE LEVELS BELOW ME AND TWO LEVELS BELOW BOTH OF THEM, I think I'm done. It's not even that I'm unwilling to try again, but I've put so much into this game all year, and I can't justify playing it anymore with all the games I've not played because I wanted to properly play through Xenoblade X. I HAVE MORE TIME ON THIS THAN THE ORIGINAL, WHICH WAS MY FAVORITE GAME OF THE DECADE, so I think I put way more time into than...possibly it deserved? I don't know.

Thinking about it, this is at least in my top 10 most played games ever. I did that because parts of the game are brilliant and I felt obligated to really get into this game because it was Xenoblade. But it would've been a better game if it wasn't in my top most played games. I think anyone who hasn't bought this game by this point should hope they release an improved version on Switch. It really needs it and I dare say deserves it. Like Wind Waker, I couldn't possibly imagine myself wanting to do all the sailing the original game requires again (let alone 100% it), but I totally did that and loved it when they just made it quicker and less time wasting in the HD version.

So, anyone think this game will get ported to the Switch?

Played it, beat it, was disappointed but I think an enhanced Switch port may help if it has a proper fleshed out story/single player campaign.

Also, anyone else think it's BS that you have to buy Dolls for the other characters?

This would be this biggest **** you they could do.

"REBUY THE GAME YOU ALREADY PLAYED TO GET A COMPLETE STORY.

Like, no, **** that noise.

@kkslider5552000 I'm reminded of escapeVektor on WiiWare.

I restarted my game a while back after not having played it for a while and needing to get back into the mechanics of the game. Of course, I ended up getting Mario Odyssey which made me not play the game for a bit, but now I'm getting back to it. Anyway, I'm close to getting my Skell License again, and I was wondering if anyone has some tips on Skell choices and combat, or knows of a good guide. Previously my team mainly consisted of 1 large, 2 medium, and 1 small Skell, but now I'm wondering whether or not that was a good choice, or if it matters at all.

Ugh they can keep a switch port. I'm not dealing with that map on a one screen device.
