1,161DezzyThu 12th Nov 2020 @SKTTR Oh yeah I'm not saying the XCX world was bad. Nor was the game bad. I enjoyed it immensely. One of the best games on the Wii U easily. But the world is so completely disconnected from the story. It feels like the exact same story could've happened in a completely different world, and it while there is plenty of character backstory through the side-quests, there isn't much actual world building. Like there are huge areas on the map that are barely even mentioned. That massive ring on Oblivia, I think is mentioned maybe once in a piece of offhand dialogue. For the most part it's just 'there'. Same for all the massive fortresses on Cauldros. They could've had some great story purpose and a lot of background lore about how it all came to be, but there's not really much of anything. It's all just the incidental setting for the story. NLA is the only part of the world that feels justified by the story in that sense. It's dangerous to go alone! Stay at home.
