Because it removes any weight your decisions might have had regarding what to skill and whatnot, here it's just very cookie cutter as literally anything will get you through the game
Now I realize it was practically the same in XC but still, I'd just hoped for more depth in the not-action part of the combat

>>322707686
I merely listed things that bothered me about the game, not sure how you translated that to me calling everything shit? As I said, the GAMEPLAY is solid, on foot at least which is the important part

Hit him until he goes immune. When he's immune kill the defense orb in the middle that is making him immune. Go back and hit him. For the dog things, hope your mech isn't destroyed. For the last part, hit him until he dies.

I like XC way better than XCX but it does have it's good points, such as being able to pilot a goddamn mech, and how vertical and well thought out the planet of Mira is. The sense of adventure is amazing.
Unfortunately the story beyond the setting and introduction is very poor and the characters even worse.

At least the "Dunban Build" in XCX is really good so I can be a cool dodge-everything murder machine.

>>322709670
You need an aura that boosts your accuracy in this game. Every weapon has one, even the mechs.

Speaking of that spoiler, How does his gear work? I'm right before Chapter 9 and want to know if anything I have equipped to him is able to be reobtained. I won't lose anything equipped on him as fashion gear, right? Also, the only actual missable related to him is having affinity with him maxed, and the heart-to-hearts, while not related to completion, can only be done before he leaves? I'm not gonna go insane and max out his level because while I like the dude as a party member, it won't make a difference and I did his affinity missions/got him to Rank 20 in his class.

i don't wanna fuck this up because the game has no NG+

Not slimming 18 characters to 6? Damn near all the affinity missions and normal missions seems more like they should have been part of the damn story instead of a side quest. The main story seems more like a side quest than the all the normal missions and affinity missions are the main story like Frye and Phog affinity mission after chapter 8 where you have to defend NLA and attack a stronghold. That could have been a story to deal with the aftermath of NLA invasion and dealing with any counterattack and staging a counter offense against the ganglion.

Everyone says silent protagonist is what ruined the story but seeing how the side missions is fucking phenomenal with the silent character the main mission is what lacking.
>>
>>322711539
Dunno about the equipment thing. You can always just give him some crap equipment before starting the next chapter. Yes and yes. I passed on that one, it's not worth the trouble, unless you're gonna go full OCD later on.
>>
>>322711935
Thank you based Doug.

Sorta-related question, if you sell unique gear like Elma's starting gear, where would you get it back if you even can? I've been hoarding everyhing but I wanna know if its a kinda game where you can rebuy unique gear.

You can't get [character name] equipment back, but there's gear that's exactly the same visually. For example the official suits are the same as Nagi's suit, the suit you can craft with Treasure Sensor XX from the AM terminal looks like L's suit on males and Celica's on females, etc.
>>
>>322711954
Now I wouldn't say the silent protag is the sole reason the game is shit but honestly, it's a pretty big deal

I think you're right though with the side missions, they should've just incorporated them into the main story somehow instead of making them completely optional
I mean look at XC, if you literally only do the main story, you're still looking at a good 40-50 hours of quality content
In X the main story is what, maybe 5-10 hours? If you discount the forced exploration of course

It's fucking pathetic to be honest family
>>
>>322712232
Character starting gear are just renamed versions of other equipment.
>>
>>322711954
The problem isn't silent MC. The issue is silent MC combined with main story cast of Elma/Lin/Tatsu.

Here's what every cutscene feels like.

Elma: Let me state something obvious
Lin: I wanna eat Tatsu
Tatsu: I am not food
Elma: Survival is important, right Rook?
Player: (Yes/No)
Lin: That's true, but I'm still hungry

The reason games like Chrono Trigger got away with a silent protag is because the other characters were really expressive and good.
>>
>>322712606
And recolored. I just got access to Elma's suit in generic green instead.

>>322712561
>>322712606

>>
>>322711747
Pretty much what the other anon said. You have to keep interrupting them via stagger or breaking appendages since otherwise they're gonna use their big attacks which hit like trucks
>>
>>322712583
I agree entirely.
> but honestly, it's a pretty big deal
Just imagine if Shulk was a silent protagonist.
That's how this game feels to me, missed potential.
>>322712667
Every party member in XCX feels like a caricature with no real personality. The ones in XC felt so unique and each party member was useful in their own way. Now I just pick whoever has the nicest face since you have 2 or 3 of every class and as the main character who can be every class you can just handle everything yourself.
>>
>>322712709
There's a red version that looks exactly the same as her starting outfit.
>>
>>322712853
also speaking of picking members, forcing Elma/Lin for every story/most affinity missions is dumb. I don't like the game discouraging me from using people I like more such as Doug or Irina.
>>
>>322713070
I use them 100% of the time anyway since I'd rather not have them under levelled for the main story, since you're restricted to those two the main story anyway... I'd rather use HB, Doug and Irina too but I guess we have to wait until post game.

I'm on the second stage of the boss fight in chapter 9. The thunder cats are stomping me.

Somehow, I managed to beat the first stage by the skin of my teeth at level 32. But this second stage is giving me some serious trouble. I even bought a new medium weight doll for myself and decked it out with the highest weapons I could get, I gave my starting one to elma.

Lin get's knocked out almost instantly, despite being the same level as me and having upgraded arts and using my best heavy armor I can get at the moment. And Elma ends up getting her doll destroyed halfway through the girl cats healthbar, then get's curb stomped the moment she ejects. My only hope for backup in the fight are the random player avatars I recruit, since my most competent side characters were restricted. And they can only do so much.

Not to mention I can only try so many times, as fuel doesn't refill after being knocked out for some reason, even thought this is clearly a fight designed for you to use the doll or be massively overleveled.

Basically, all my AI's get's KO'd by the time he summons his helpers, which is okay in a fight of honor apparently, and they all agro to me so I can't do too much with all the stunlock.
>>
>>322714258
Loading times are noticably different.So yes if you're patient enough
>>
>>322714258
Yes. Makes Exploring the game a little better.
>>
>>322714258
Depends if you're fine with the current load times or want them to be faster.
>>
>>322714258
At the very least you should download the basic and city packs.
>>
>>322714303
Buy more Dolls. The starter is a junker that wont last long. Get 2 heavies and a Wels and you're set. The level 30s dont cost a whole lot so you should be able to get that.
>>
>>322714303
>this is clearly a fight designed for you to use the doll
No, it's a fight designed for you AND YOUR TEAM to use dolls.

>level 32
>Only two Skells
You're clearly rushing things. Have you been ignoring the side missions?
>>
>>322714258
Yes. The pop-in is atrocious without the packs. Especially in NLA which you will be at very often. It's still bad but at least you're not waiting 20-30 seconds for an NPC to load.
>>
>>322714303
The fight really isn't that bad if you have a team of skells.

>>322706363
>>the most insufferable cast of characters imaginable, basically walking charades
The extra characters are fine, if not great for the most part.
The problem is that the main characters are just bad compared to them.
Lin by herself is not that bad at all, but the fucking jokes with the talking turnip makes her grating by association.
Whenever she's not talking about how Tatsu is finally fat enough to cook, she's just fine.
Elma just plain sucks, I can't think of any redeeming part of her.

That's the thing, though. I spent all my money on a new medium, them used the remaining to deck it out as best I could. At the time, I had enough to buy two light weights, one medium that could be decked out completely, or any of the currently available heavies but I couldn't have bought any weapons for it.

What do the weight classes even mean?
>>
>>322715503
More weight = more everything, except for accuracy and agility. Dunno if there are exclusive weapons for each weight class or something.
>>
>>322714719
I don't really understand skells. I'm just shy of 40 hours in now. I thought I would be able to upgrade my starter, so I held off on getting new ones. I just now found out you can't really do that. Plus, I had the fear that if I gave the retarded AI skells that they would end up holding out until they exploded instead of jumping out before like I do. I didn't know if you do the quick time right you don't have to pay for repairs, or that the AI perfects it every time.

Coming from chronicles, this game is fairly confusing.
>>
>>322714965
I am poor.
>>
It might end up just making the world feel even smaller than it did when you first got a regular skell, but damn, flying for the first time was an incredible feeling.
>>
>>322715503
Heavies cant dodge shit but hit like trucks, have huge fuel capacity and are bulky fuckers

Lights are dodgetanks, not too durable but still good in that regard, bad fuel cap and good damage output.

Fuck knows with mediums, I personally stick to my Wels while I trick out party members in heavies for dps. You know those XeDoms roaming Sylvalum? Every time I fight one with my party they lose their 50 frame heavies damn quick while I'm left to clean up pretty much the entire mess in the Wels because nothing can hit me.
>>
Are there fast ways to up your rank and blade level?
>>
>>322715815
How much do accuracy and agility play into skell combat, anyway? From what I've seen they're mostly giant damage dispensers you use until you have to abandon ship so they won't explode.

The game doesn't really explain any of this, I even looked in the manual.
>>
>>322715893
Skells have a set level. More or less you can use them to fight enemies up to 25 levels above the Skell's. The AI may blow up faster than you, but they're always eject perfectly, so don't worry about that. I did the Thundercat's fight piloting an Inferno and with 2 lights and the basic Skell for my teammates and I had no problems whatsoever.
>>
>>322716002
Then set up your probes properly. No one should have monetary problems in a game that gives you free money every 15 minutes.
>>
>>322716498
I get 20k every cycle. The problem is I just spent all my cash on a new doll and weapons for it.
>>
>>322716183
Giving things away in squad deals always gives you 50 BLADE points (which is about as much as opening a field item), so be sure to be generous whenever you don't want the loot you're getting.
After you finish chapter 12, you unlock grinding missions for money, affinity, battle points, experience, etc.
>>
>>322716287
I picked the Inferno, admittedly it was mostly because it's head looked like metal gear Rex.

I'm planning on buying another doll as soon as I can. Are there any you can get for free aside from the first one?
>>
>never checked what the scout reward thing was

Set up your probes properly, don't have any mining probes since you'll be getting too many materials and miranium than you'd ever need to anyway, and mining probes diminish your monetary revenue, set up good research probe combos based on location chains with good revenue ratings and/or discovered secret locations (Noctilum in particular has a nice chain opportunity that you can carry over all the way to Primordia), and put booster probes at the end of those chains. And most importantly:
Plant
Probes
Everywhere
Don't leave a single probe site empty, unless it requires level 5 mechanical skill or flying, you should be planting as many probes as possible, on every continent.
Also be sure to do the miranium exchange quests with May May on the Ma-non ship.

I hole-hardedly agree, but allow me to play doubles advocate here for a moment. For all intensive purposes I think you are wrong. In an age where false morals are a diamond dozen, true virtues are a blessing in the skies. We often put our false morality on a petal stool like a bunch of pre-Madonnas, but you all seem to be taking something very valuable for granite. So I ask of you to mustard up all the strength you can because it is a doggy dog world out there. Although there is some merit to what you are saying it seems like you have a huge ship on your shoulder. In your argument you seem to throw everything in but the kids Nsync, and even though you are having a feel day with this I am here to bring you back into reality. I have a sick sense when it comes to these types of things. It is almost spooky, because I cannot turn a blonde eye to these glaring flaws in your rhetoric. I have zero taller ants when it comes to people spouting out hate in the name of moral righteousness. You just need to remember what comes around is all around, and when supply and command fails you will be the first to go. Make my words, when you get down to brass stacks it doesn't take rocket appliances to get two birds stoned at once. It's clear who makes the pants in this relationship, and sometimes you just have to swallow your prize and accept the facts. You might have to come to this conclusion through denial and error but I swear on my mother's mating name that when you put the petal to the medal you will pass with flying carpets like it’s a peach of cake.

The big differences between XBC and XBCX for me were
>party gauge or overdrive
>vision tags or soul voices
>more smaller unique worlds or fewer large open ended basic worlds
>story or no story

I liked vision tags and the party gauge more than what XBCX replaced them with, but everything else XBCX did with the combat I really enjoyed. I kinda wish the characters were more charming though, none of them really seem special which is fitting because they're supposed to be robots being controlled by ordinary humans, that doesn't mean they're more enjoyable though. Being able to fly a face around is also cool as fuck. I also liked the music XBC had more than XBCX, but this is alljust my opinion which is going to make someone post a smug reaction face

How do you not have enough money to buy practically anything you want? I really don't get people saying they have money problem, just fucking explore and set up probes, they literally give you free money, and nothing in the game is worth buying except for skell frames and shields. I always had enough money to buy a skell and gear for it every time a teammate or I reached a frame threshold level, up to four skells per thresholds, that's literally all you have to spend your infinite free money on, how do you even run out of income? What's more, every quests and nearly every items you open on the field also gives you money, and you get money from items you have 99 of, which will include all of the ore types in no time.

that's exactly how I feel

I didn't mean to imply that I think XBX is bad or that I didn't like it

but people who say they didn't like XBC for whatever reason really bother me. that game has stuck with me ever since I finished it. the characters, the story themes, the music, the environments. every single inch of that game was memorable for me (exaggeration, obviously, but you get the idea)

XBX was awesome fun, and I had a blast playing it. I wouldn't finish a game I didn't like. But very little aside from mira stuck with me. It felt like I was checking off quest boxes as if I was in FFXIV or WoW or something.

I was never in a battle where I felt excited. The battle would start, I would execute my combos and soul voices, and then the battle would conclude. If I wasn't prepared for that battle, it was immediately obvious and putting up a fight was usually not worth it. Perhaps that's simply me knowing how to prepare for stuff better having gone through the first iteration of the game, but XBC had many moments where you were on the ropes but could persevere by timing your heals just right or getting a good chain attack going.

The only fight that put up a semblance of a challenge in the story mode was the infamous chapter 9. I was level 34 when I attempted it, I died after a pretty close fight. I happened to level up from the adds to 35 before dying, and I mopped the floor with the next attempt. It's stuff like that that made me less excited to fight.

Wels and a Mastema I think. Also I rarely bought shit and made sure to keep my probes up to par while doing a shit ton of exploring and questing. I probably had about 15m when I hit lv50 for the Wels and then got the other a little later after Elma hit 50. Seriously, if you arent raking in at least 100k with proves by that point you are doing something very wrong.
>>
>>322723962
not that guy

I beat chapter 12 after having two level 50 frames. I bought a Lailah and a Verus I believe. Pretty sure just the Lailah would've been fine, but I got the Verus because I had the cash lying around before I started the mission.

If you're not making 140k+ per tick on FrontierNav right now, you need to go fix that. Money should NOT be an object in this game.

>>322724787
go hunting for map treasures

mechanical treasures sometimes have Research Probes. pretty sure there are maps floating around the internet of all the research probe locations. if they don't have probes, they will often have decent money.

find all of the sightseeing spots for each probe location. remove all mining nodes so you get max money. look up good probe placements to maximize cash flow. if for some reason you still haven't done this, actually go probe ALL of the locations!

look for normal missions around NLA. the late game ones can drop buttloads of cash on you.

Just throwing this out there, but maybe that's because because you put more stock into the basic mission board missions than you really ought to have?

I only ever went to those to pick up neat gear, get quick affinity with team mates, see if there was something I could do with all this Miranium I'm shitting out, or get the starting quests to get affinity missions.

>I was never in a battle where I felt excited
I couldn't say I was ever really in one either, but I wouldn't say there were battles where I was bored, either. I was grossly overleveled for XBC from doing sidequests and exploring, and I am still grossly overleveled for XBX from doing sidequests and exploring. I am currently level 30 and I just finished Chapter 4. I get my jollies from trying to go where I obviously shouldn't be going yet and somehow making it through regardless. Picking up a bunch of enemies at once until the weak ones number so many that I may actually feel threatened is fun. Challenging Tyrants in general is fun,.

I know I'm not really far yet, but I doubt the difficulty is going to ramp up significantly to give me any kind of challenge, much like XBC. Even the infamous chapter 9.

>putting up a fight was usually not worth it
The same was usually true of XBC.

>XBC had many moments where you were on the ropes but could persevere by timing your heals just right or getting a good chain attack going
I wouldn't say this game lacks those, just mostly that we're too familiar with the basic system so we're not going to feel that same stress of hard-fought challenge as often, or in the same way. Like, Goetia's first appearance annihilated my party save myself due to overleveling, and had I not been, I may have felt threatened.

I really think it's less down to the system as I actually enjoy the base system far more, and more down to the familiarity.

XCX's postgame is nothing but a big grind, but it always amuses me to see some detractors claim that XBC's extra content wasn't as grindy.

Did they even try the superbosses? The grind to get all the Debuff Protector VI and Undefeatable VI and all the Topple Up/Topple Plus VI for your party was agonizingly slow because of how gem crafting worked. That's not even mentioning trying to get the best gear and everything.

While memeblade builds in XCX are everywhere, they tend to forget that Topplelocking was basically everything you did for endgame in XBC. I suspect that's why it isn't as big a strategy in this game, along with the removal of chain attacks. Overdrive is OP by itself, but you have to work for it.

Considering you only get paid every 45 minutes irl, good luck. Just get into postgame and start farming equipment and shit. Selling armor worth 25k a pop is going to net you way more than frontiernav ever will. Setup nav for as much miranium as possible to feed the beast.

Considering nofuel is after the chimeras, what's the problem? Hell the only time I used my dolls was to phoenix the chimeras after dying to them once in the whole final fight phase. I didn't even know they were there fighting Vita. And i only had one level 50 wels
>>
>>322727879
The final boss in no way requires any infinite TP/overdrive build to beat. It just requires you to not be a retard. I didn't even make any augments until well into postgame and he went down no problem for me.

My main gripe was that they didn't loop very well. The song would fade out as it ended and then fade in when it looped from the top.

Well geez, guess I over did it then? Though the final boss gave me a good scare by disabling my skell, but thankfully I didn't neglect my ground gear or arts so I beat him. on my second try.

It's not about the skells. The problem is the last segment is a forced ground combat segment, and a lot of people neglect their ground combat because they had skells for the last 6 chapters.

Every weapon and class is viable son. Just because I cant beat the end game tyrants in less than 10 minutes doesnt mean I can't beat them with another in 20. Hell I'd argue its more fun that way.
>>
>>322740343
That's bullshit and you know it. Many level 70+ tyrants require specific XX augments to even be beatable. It's essentially just forced cheesing.
>>
>>322740176
You gain mining probes via a few quests but for the most part mechanical exploration. You'll need to get your blade level up to get more. If you've got a 15000 I'd say you're about right for that level

>>322740437

Show your working son. Explain why I specifically need to do the TP/Overdrive Longsword build when apparently I just need evasion and accuracy.

>Why do I need your kind of cheese when my cheese works too???

Like I said, post-game content requires cheesing. Everybody uses something, whether it's max evasion, infinite overdrive, etc. It makes tyrants incredibly easy.

You can't do post-game without funneling your playstyle to a specific broken build, as opposed to pre-post-game where you can do basically whatever you want.

I dress in the light combat vest, I think that's alright. I had Elma wear the Soale suit, that's the one that looks like Mjolnir armour.
>>
>>322740819
But you specifically pointed to the longsword overdrive build.

Are you saying that using good equipment, planning, and augments is equivalent to cheesing the game? That's very stupid.

It isn't that, it's that all of them look like ugly garbage that I have seen thus far.

The only easy grind spot I know of requires the flight mod to get to the top of noctilum and kill the lvl 60 gators
and for funds you should be placing research probes and discovering land marks for dosh. 30 ones aren't too expensive but the others will break your wallet

I leveled one of my level 15 characters to 60 within 15 minutes. As an added bonus, they drop gear that sells for 10k-20k so sell that shit too.

If I'm solo-ing shit, is it better to go light or heavy armour?

I'm not sure if I should focus on not getting hit most of the time then dying in one hit if I DO get hit, or remaining tanky and dealing with damage with toppling, staggering, and the occasional aura
>>
>>322741112
No. The fact is that people are pretty much required to use 1 of like 3 builds for post-game content. Even if you don't realize it, everyone's build is pretty much the same. It goes against what the game was about before the endgame, which was pretty much "do whatever you want". You can't just do whatever you want in the post-game, because you'll notice that your build evolves into one of the few endgame broken builds whether it's infinite overdrive or max evasion.

I'm completely new to the Xenogears/Xenosaga/Xenoblades series, is it necessary for me to have played the previous games to enjoy Xenoblade Chronicles X?

Don't worry, I heard they translated all the lore out so that's not an issue.

I played a bit of Xenoblade before starting this one, I think I like this a lot more not just for the gameplay but the story as well, the more sci-fi feel is better to me.

But why neglect your ground gear? I still sporadically upgrade for caves where your skell can't enter or areas where your teammates skells roll over every mob they see with full intent.
>>
Just finished chapter 5, 30 hours in. I'm doing every sidequest I can tackle as soon as I can, it takes forever but it led me as far as Cauldros before chapter 5 and I love the feeling of being underpowered and having to sneak around in areas full of strong enemies. The environments are masterfully designed to allow that, such as with the Ganglion at the gates of Cauldros you can avoid by jumping on the rocks to the side.

>>322742496

Yeah, exactly. The weird magitek feeling of Xenoblade never really jived that much with me.

>I didn't enjoy having those vocal tracks being so loud the voice acting was barely audible anymore during the cutscenes

Yes you fucking did say it was bad you didnt mean that but that was exactly what you said.

And how is it that you have no duckinf clue what sound mixing is? What your complaining about is the fuckinf souns mixing and that i do agree with you since ita bullshit that the sonf vocals over power the charcters speech.

But again so you stop being a dumb faggot and so people are abel to learn something new today: Sound mixing was pretty bad at times in this game.

I think the wrothian fight should have been a red flag that the game is going to throw those moments at you, I'm surprised they didnt take that to me "oh shit I'd better not neglect that shit"

>>322742013
You can play XBCX without playing any xeno game.

But if you can play XBC first, you should, since like an anon said the gameplay is flat out worse on some points. Although it has some merits (like the party link).

Story wise XBC is definitly better and scaling the titan gives such a good feeling I can't describe. Just be sure you don't get burned up on all the sidequests before you finish the story.
>>
>>322742620
Did the same and true, its fucking fun. Navigating the cauldros enviroment while everything, even the fucking enviroment, wants to kill you.

Was scared that skells would make me lose interest and rush the game, but it adds to the fun to be able to blast trough the enviroment now. I had most data probes I could reach without the flight module anyway.

Is Cauldros giving anyone a WoW vibe?

I cant remember its name but theres a lava area thats got a lot of mining shit going on, I'm getting dejavu here

It was weird, and came out of nowhere, but no.

Excluding the Ares90, there's nothing OP about Skells. And even then, ground combat is better.
