It took me till Chapter 11 to realize her fucking hair clips are literally the
Also just finished chapter 12

>fucking jar jar and the chipmunks
i got my first skell tonight, and getting massive frame drops. does it get better..?
Just beat the final boss today. Oh how I wish there was another chapter or two about how they sort that mess out.
I'm a little tempted to restart and try playing the game as a different class, faction, and so on. Put more effort into exploring by ground and such.
You do know you can keep your weapon and skills if you max out a class tree right?
You can play through the game with a Gatling gun and Laser sword with Passives from the sniper lance class.
>Cropping out all the bullshit
You can't fool me, I know its still there.
Am i missing something with the fuel recovery probe? Placed it but it doesn't seem to be aking any difference, even with leaving the skells docked right on the probe i set it at.
Unless the effect is just not that great.
This is one of the major reasons I didn't like the first XC. It's only barely manageable in this one because the resolution is decent. Monolith should really just develop for PC since they seem to think they're doing that already, these HUDs were clearly not made for a typical TV setup.
>post yfw you saw what elma actually looks like
>First world problems
There are fucking kids starving in different parts of the world and you fuckers are complaining about small text
Her hair is so amusing to me gor some reason.
Is she part of L's kind? They don't exactly bother explaining anything about her real form.
The ending was literally all leading to a sequel.
I need to know what happens next now, damn it.
Americlaps are absolutely pathetic
The ending fucked me up pretty hard.
I hate bullshit cliffhanger endings like this.
It's literally the same as getting blue balled during sex.
I pray to jesus we at least get a DLC Mission or something.
I need some closure on all of this shit, and can't wait for the next game.
Nobody was even claiming the small text was the end of the world, you just had to come in with your preachy bullshit logic fallacy that because someone else has it worse that magically makes your own problems irrelevant. That's ridiculous way of thinking, but at least you're doing your part by acting like you care. Good on you.
It seems like every sidequest, someone either dies, or wants to fuck someone else. I'm always organizing either weddings or funerals.
they should've made it where flying is activated by double jumping, that way you dont lose the skell jump and aren't having the field themes restarted everytime there's a ledge
quick! can i make adam jensen? this is important...
adam jensen was half my inspiration for this in the first place
but these arms are actually mega bulky when used on men, so you'd have to look for something different
game will get no sequel. It's just a story that was gutted & reworked as best they could. The focus was on the gameplay and world.
a sequel would mean Sawano will come back & so too will the custom made avatar. Every Xenoblade has had a different feel & sound so it would be a shame to not carry on that tradition. Plus I'm ready for a new composer story & cast. It limits them if they have to drag the story & universe of XCX along with the next game. And I dont really want a sequel to a game thst feels like a Saturday morning anime show. Theyd have to spend time giving a back story to Rhyzz & Daghan, Goetia & Luxaar & if they dont then that will just sour me. It's best to just start with a new cast, new story, new universe, honestly & that's what Takahashi wants to do. Stop thinking so hard about XCX's story, people.
>body wrap actually does go to the waist for men
shit. then i guess i can. i already made the major (due i part to her VA literally being an option) so now i guess i'll make an adam. not sure which voice to pick for him though. probably the mature one since the rest sound like teenagers
The story was alright. I personally was satisfied with the ambiguous ending. I feel like Mira's story is pretty much finished. They don't need to make another game that involves Mira again There's no point honestly. They could probably put in some references into the next game but making a sequel to X would be pretty boring story wise for the next xeno game.
I think they could make a game that takes place in the same universe without it being on Mira. I'd like them to make a sequel that focuses on another ark that left earth, and instant of crashing on a planet, you go through space on the ark using skells to search for a planet that's hospitable and get into various shenanigans along the way, and maybe fight the other alien race that the Ganglion were fighting over earth.
I'm just saying, man. The story & characters in XCX wasn't anything special & pretty underwhelming, so I don't get why people want a sequel so bad. You want more Tatsu & Lin jokes, more Sawano, and another custom avatar? You've already had a full game's worth of that stuff, and ypu want another games worth of it again? You want a sequel to build on characters that arent really all that interestig in the first place? Why? Yeah, let's have more stoic, cold Elma! Like, I couldn't care less about any answers if the writing is going to be as lackadaisical as it is in XCX.
>those antennae on her forehead that look like angry eyebrows
>either wears stripperiffic armor or armor designed to look stripperiffic (depending on if that's her actual skin or plating)
The only improvement I could think of would be implementing her poncho from her mim outfit somehow; the artbook had some fucking great spaceponcho concepts in it.
I agree the writing and characters were pretty bad but there's too much worldbuilding to just throw it all away. Like the stuff with the Samaarians and Zarubaggon. And
Lao being alive at the end.Plus if they make a sequel it wouldn't even have to take place on Mira or even have the same cast of characters. see >>324107923
I agree Sawano shouldn't be involved at all in Xenoblade 3, the dude doesn't have the first clue how to write video game music.
>so I don't get why people want a sequel so bad
Because of all the unanswered questions. Takahashi said his next game will be more story focused like XC, so I doubt the sequel's story will be like XCX.
Reminder that Takahashi doesnt care about story and would rather focus on gameplay. He's also a westaboo.
How is any of that a retread? That's exactly why i said it should focus on a different ark going to a different planet.
Maybe one of the Arks that Lara Nara was picking up a transmission from.Of course it would have a different cast of characters if its taking place on a different ark. Elma even said that some of the other arks took actual bodies instead of converting them to data, so there'd even be that to differentiate it.There's still plenty of potential in this universe, it doesn't have to be on Mira.
There's nothing in that interview that says he "doesn't care about story." He said that he wanted to get the gameplay elements and the aspects of HD development down before making a game with grandiose elements like previous Xeno games.
>I agree the writing and characters were pretty bad but there's too much worldbuilding to just throw it all away. Like the stuff with the Samaarians and Zarubaggon. And Lao being alive at the end.

Idk, it's just the Samaarian & Zaruboggan stuff doesn't interest me enough to want answers about them, I guess. What is it really going to change?
Lao, I couldn't really care less about either. His motivations were pretty weak. If there was a sequel, they've alredy fucked up his character for me to really give a damn.
Even if it didn't feature the same cast, it would still be about shit from XCX, that's inevitable. And it just limits the next Xenoblade game if they're forced to stick with the XCX universe, answering all of the things they didnt touch upon (things that just arent interesting enough for me to want answered anyway).
The best route is a new universe, new cast & new story.
So Xenoblade 3/Xenoshield/Whateverthefuckit'scalledwhogivesashit probably won't be an actual sequel to any previous Blade game storywise (same as Chronicles to X).
But what about gameplaywise? Would you guys want a different gameplay system or an expansion on what we already have?
....and you think they wouldn't be pissed if they went off and made a game that had nothing to do with XCX at all? At least if they made a game in the same universe we'd know we'd be getting answers eventually.
An expansion on what we have. I think they should bring back the Encourage prompt and other party interactions (IIRC, weren't you able to help up a toppled party member in XC?). That was the one thing I didn't like about XCX's battle system. You didn't really have to pay as much attention to your party members as you did in XC. The only interaction you had with them was reviving them or using the soul voices.
Any, it literally doesn't matter for 90% of the game.
Just pick whatever will get your BLADE Rank up the fastest. Interceptors and curators are good choices. After you hit rank 10 switch to Memespectors for maximum daily bonuses.
You have a point, but it seems a lot of people were generally underwhelmed by the characters & story in XCX, so perhaps a sequel isnt the best route to take. Either way, I can't wait for Xenoblade 3's reveal.
>Monolith Soft’s next project will look and feel “pretty different from this one”
I wonder how far that goes, if he's gonna completely scrap the familiar combat system in favor of something more action oriented.
>(IIRC, weren't you able to help up a toppled party member in XC?
And wake them up as well. That'd be great.
Also, manual soul voices you can give specific characters. At the cost of some tension, you give a soul voice command for x ability to be used so you can get party members to do what you need them to. Like how Chain Attacks were basically 'I need you fuckers to actually do something specific'
What if he already bought it and wants to be able to look at it without tarnishing the paper with his fat greasy fingers?
I went through the entire game as Pathfinder, being at the bottom, it wasn't until getting Blade Level 10 that I though I needed some of those extra support items to help me start fighting higher level enemies so I switched to memespectors for free loot.
So who's the Tyrant with the best K/D ratio of BLADE members in the entire game you ask?
Should I betray him? decisions......
anyone know the ongoing consequences?
Protip for the future: AIs always perfect their escape prompt, when you get down to 1 insurance, pass that skell down to an AI and buy a new one for yourself. That's how I managed to have my first full party of 4 Skells.
>Tfw you actually want AIs to bind because you equip them with 200+ fuel burst weapons that empty their tanks quickly, but they always fuck it up and release the foe early with barely any fuel gains
I fucking hope Takahashi learned from his mistake and doesn't run another HILARIOUS running joke into the fucking ground as hard as TATSU'S FOOD LMAO in his next game.
That's a Japan problem, not a Takahashi problem.
On that one affinity mission where tatsu ends up im cauldros, I thought it was played pretty well. They actually went somewhere with it.
Most of the time it's just bad because it's played out way too fucking long. Instead of quick 2-3 line stabs they waste whole scenes on it
clearly you've only just began playing this game is over the rainbow hasn't completely gotten on your nerves yet
youll see soon enough, over the rainbow completely ruins this games soundtrack beyond repair, unless you dont like flying. And if you like flying now, you wont later.
>tfw played and adored all xeno games except saga because namco are fags who won't put it on PSN or HD trilogy
the only division you want to pick for the time being is prospectors
>get tickets for literally doing nothing
>are the only division that will get salvage tickets which are the most useful item on the division rewards
people who say it "doesn't matter" are cheating you out of free salvage tickets (oh, and mega tensifyers.) The other divisions dont get those because a. hackers and b. they suck
just be a prospector until post-game and then change
are you kidding?
>DOODLY DOO DO DO DOO
when in the air after a battle:
>DOODLY DOO DO DO DOO
when flying everywhere to complete your survey:
>DOODLY DOO DO DO DOO
when gently flying over atmospheric white wasteland with a gorgeous lake
>DOODLY DOO DO DO DOO
dont forget that basically r2 becomes the "play shitty sawano music button" and that the track literally kills the atmosphere of flying, exploring, and gobbles up the rest of the soundtrack. bad design.
tfw no one talks about best song
By My Side is the best of the vocal songs
Me too. All of them kinda grew on me and now I don't even mind Shagai (the one with those fuckers going HUH HUH YEAH).
Sylvalum probably my favorite region theme right now though. Noctilum a close second. Though I STILL haven't gotten to Cauldros yet.
>tfw it also turns off glasses and other casual wears
guess it's more headsets for my party
>People complained about Lin's costume changes and the boob slider.
>Nobody complains about
Testament being renamed "Reclaimers" because WAAAH RELIGION IS SCARY, completely ruining the Kos-Mos reference.
It still bugs me.
you get to do that again for Murderess's last quest, but from that point until the end of that quest, it's made for bullying Alexa.
Also fuck the trading cards sidequest, the lack of Blade medals, and that I haven't found Mia once since sending her off into the wild
>Using broken crutch items that are handed to you for free and never appear in the game unless you use the social features aka "pls halp me internet I can't win on my own"
People actually do this?
I just chose the division that sounded most fun to me.
The first time when I almost found the three definians I got into a battle right before them with some ballrobots. Everything went somewhat smoothly until suddenly something killed my party through the walls.
Leveled up a bit since then and now I need to beat Rexoskell, made my first augments (Mech damage) and gonna try again when I feel like it.
What the fuck is up with Nintendo never including a BGM slider anyways?
When I was a kid my mom got pissed at me because she was sick of hearing the OOT overworld theme while she was doing laundry.
I was the same way so I moved my couch into the middle of the room close to the TV. It's way more comfy to play now, and I've even kind of taken a liking to the furniture setup because now I have a path around the room.
I always laugh when she says that, it makes me think of the "so this is the power of Wii U" meme here. Cracks me up cause this game looks pretty assy. That and the Potato thing. Its like they're in on our memes or something.
I read somewhere in GBATemp that the text engine in the jap version is pretty fucked up, so I guess NoA would've had a hard time fixing all the text.
This is purely speculation, but I think having a bigger fontsize may have been doable if the localization was English only, but since they also needed to include other languages like French and Spanish, NoA just decided to go for the small text.
