How did they fuck up the music and audio of this game so badly?
only the bottom 3 are problems.
I Liked the NLA music but it needed more than 2 songs for the entire length of the game.
Black tar had the opposite effect, I hated it at first but it grew on me.

over the rainbow completely ruins this games soundtrack to the point were it cripples the exploration atmosphere, the most important and best thing in this game. fuck.
still trying to cope with spending money on this shit
This game does one thing right in that it has an absolutely beautiful world that is nice to explore. Everything else about this game is fucking terrible and I say that as someone who has 50+ hours on it.
The grind for augments is ridiculous even before the post-game. I don't know why they felt the need to make everything so tedious. I guess to keep people playing the shitty online mode for a while.
It's a narrative focused game with a shitty story and annoying characters. The combat isn't that good (same with X) and the music is bland. The best thing about it were the environments but that's not enough to make it a good game.
I see people post 4 characters in bunny outfits, true elma outfits and like 6 potential xx, 3 melee attack xx,etc and it's like what the fuck? How can you not get bored, no matter which way they do it. Farming the right monster for the drop or global nemesis parts into reward tickets, it's boring as fuck and takes ages
>Letting fights last long enough without activating Overdrive that you actually ever hear the lyrics
Cause you have shitty eyesight or arent living japan who are stereotyped into supposedly haveing small rooms and shit so thry would naturally be pretty close to a tv while playing
Why is there no option to make it bigger though, or mute music for that matter
>Try to play Baten Kaitos Origins

Fuck guys I thought you said Monolith games had good stories
nice spoiler retard
but yeah, can anyone explain the ending to me where
we find out they have no bodies at all and their consciousness is being controlled by NOTHING. What is keeping them alive?
Technically neither because
robots aren't people and have no rights

First time getting to Gaur Plains is one of the greatest RPG moments ever.
Only thing that comes anywhere close to that in X is getting a skell, but it's still not even close.
It's all Lin's dream while she's dying on Earth XCX is Lin enacting her fantasy of discovering a new planet and perfecting the flight module Over the Rainbow is her favorite song
Sounds like that flash I saw a while ago of some russian loli who got her brain blown out of her skull in a terrorist attack and she dreams about some fucked up shit while singing as she slowly dies.
>that subtle Lao moment where he doubts that Lin is 13 IRL and implies she might be some fat otaku living out the dream
Also if the white whale only has 50,000 mims or so and each mim had a job, how come no-one you meet remembers Cross? I would have thought that Nagi would have recognised Cross due to their combat skills
I liked Lin's Monologeu about the only way humanity would see their future was to keep living.
Shame the rest of the game never really makes you actually feel like your surviving because the Ganglion wet their pants at human anatomy.
the first time i had to pay to repair my level 50 skell and it drained all my credits and i hadnt saved in a while..... i didnt play for a few days.
Probably worst thing about the game is the lack of auto save.
Now why would you do that, anon?
After all the work Lin went through with that and you wrecked it?
it was a TRAP i tell you. she fucking knew there was a level 60 up there... she tells you not to wreck it and she sends you to a place you havent been before with a stealthed level 60..... Yeah it was a trap
>For X, I'd say looking at Primordia for the first time
Muh nigga. When you get out of that grove area up on the cliff and you can see NLA way off in the distance...shit I wish I could go back. I decided after the E3 2014 trailer I wasn't going to look in to the game much so it was just staggering. I recently went back to watch the Treehouse stream and I'm glad I didn't have that moment ruined.
That's the case with the localized version. If treehouse didn't change the division names, it should have been obvious that this game was meant to have a lot of references to various religions.
>Obnoxiously loud lyrics that drown out conversations in cutscenes
>No option to lower in-game music volume or mute it altogether
Blame NoA for that, they removed all of the sound settings for some reason.
>it should have been obvious that this game was meant to have a lot of references to various religions.
But even the Japanese version is light on that stuff. I think you're exaggerating just how much was changed in the localisation, it's actually surprisingly faithful. Hell the most I noticed in my brief (10 hrs) playthrough of the Japanese version was they switched out stupid Japanese memes for stupid American memes. I was astounded.
origins has a different writer than the first game. anyway the crux of the story in both cases is the relationship between the protagonist and the guardian spirit (the player)
>stealthed lv 60
You talking about that thing all the way up were that probe should be in primodria?
Saw something big peek over the end and haven't been to excited to gi up there since
I CANT HEAR YOU
I CANT SEE YOU
You know, I was thinking about getting this, but after giving the first one enough time to "sink in" and realizing that there are like 10 other games for the Wii U and 3DS that I want to actually play, I think I'm going to pass.
The original one looked SO FUCKING COOL and I remember thinking "holy shit, this game is going somewhere!" by the time I got to the forest on the Bionis head. Turned out it was heading for a cliff the whole time
The combat needs significant improvement. I don't understand how this board can bitch about the "mmo" combat in FFXII and then act like this shit is just peachy because it requires a slight amount of extra cognition to position your player character correctly. What's worse, you can't even customize the AI of your party members. This is unfortunate, because their AIs are truly horrendous.
Everything about the game is sparse as fuck. Any and all character interaction is locked behind an autistic abortion version of Fire Emblem's support system.
He has the best K/D ratio of BLADE members of all the tyrants so far.
no, hes probably talking about a fucking level 60 2 inch bug that he probably ran over and pissed off.
that thing you're talking about comes out of its hole at night like the eel in SM64
this enemy is so fucking ingenious it hurts
>go up to him, "wow cool like at this wreckage surrounding the water and shit I bet I'll get a lot of mechanical frontiernav points if i go analyze it"
>he wakes up
>7 years later
>level 60 party, rocking a BRAND NEW Ares 90
>its time to go fuck some shit
>click ashura cannon
>i will get my revenge toda-
>he has fucking reflect
I wanted it to be and improved FFXII with the whole "rah rah, humanity!" thing.
It's actually a downgrade from everything that FFXII had, with nothing extra aside from a gimpy town-building system, and in typical jrpg fashion, the game's retarded ass plot trivializes everything that the party has fighting for up to that point; twice.
>add meme to the name of something I don't like
>it's now cancer and anyone who likes it is clearly not as sophisticated as me!
Choke on a dick, you stupid faggot.
The only people who didn't engage it is those that know the ruse beforehand, or in some playthroughs I've seen, people who don't bother to explore off the strayed path at least once in a while and just b-line to their objective.
That is more upsetting to me.
In the quest where you go around asking all the Nopon caravans to throw fireworks, if you ask Pisa to come to NLA instead of her caravan's chief you can then push her to abandon her caravan and stay in NLA. Then she spends the night drinking with the Prones in front of the diner.
>there are people that don't unironically sing Over The Rainbow once it starts playing
I can't stop myself from abandoning my augment grinding in order to grind for something else.

Fuck. Anyone know if there's a visual difference between the bunny cuffs and links?

>1. Sirene the Lost Lvl 13 (227502)
I guess people really ARE that dumb...
Back in school, my IQ averaged at an 83 but that was likely due to me having ADHD which really made me not interested in focusing in class and doing my homework but online tests actually put me a little above 120. That pretty much makes me an underachiever.
So, you guys are already breaking the delusion that XCX was anything special, let alone "RPG OF THE YEAR!!!!"
Glad It's happening, I just didn't except this to happen so soon.
> come back with end game skell to get revenge on Luciel
> figure that if I can't kill him I could at least run away
> Zenith cannon takes out half his health, the rest of the fight should be easy
>TOPPLE CITY, ONLY DETOUR IS DEATH
I'm coming back with more theroid slayer augments, you fucker.
A simple way around this would be to have regular saves and a separate autosave or quicksave. In a game of this size and with as many conversational and quest variants as it has, it's hard to imagine why they thought it was a good idea to have a single file.
>Cutscene says that you need to go around to get where you need to go

Whoever designed this part is a genius.
Fucking doubt it.
That being said, with there being so many bullshit squad/online feature settings why are there no sound settings?
This might be the first game I've come across where you can't adjust any of the volume levels.
I'm enjoying myself but I keep finding myself getting bored of the combat system. It's a fun game despite that, rather than because of it; the rest of the game - the world, the quests, the characters, the robots, the customisation - is the good bit.
If they had decided to make it more action-based instead of menu based, it would be the perfect game for me.
That said, I'm enjoying myself at the moment. I managed to master the gatling gun/shield class so I'm using the gatling with the blast fencer class, so I can use the photon saber. I have about five or six ballistic arts for the gatling on my menu so I can usually just cycle through all of them pretty quickly. Along with some Ranged Attack Up augments the Gatling finally feels like a bit more of a weapon.
XCX' artbook is up on sadpanda, just in case there's someone who gives a shit.
That's hilarious, I beat all of them without topple locking. Didn't even use Melia for starlight kick.
Go shitpost elsewhere idiot. XCX post game is a dull fucking farmfest to get gear/augs to cheese the superbosses because you cannot survive their attacks.
I don't recall claiming you had to topple lock. Mentioning an option is not the same as saying you have to use it and only it. But thanks for confirming you just came to this thread to violate the global rules.
There is a reason why I stopped after getting my Ares90. I literally got it, flew around and killed some shit for a couple hours and have not touched the game since.
It's just too tedious and not fun in any way.
Meh. It's more like I haven't played many games where the soundtrack is so intrusive that I've actually wanted to make adjustments.
Do you have any examples of modern games where you don't have at least some basic sound settings? I still can't think of any.
Xenoblade maybe? I'd have to turn some on to check, which is a bit much for this conversation. But you're right that it's more common nowadays, and they certainly should have included it when they threw in 50 other options. Lack of sound control was more common in previous generations.
Sadpanda's suddenly acting up for me. Here's inferior panda link instead
You know what:
I've been here for years and I'm still not sure on the reason sad panda is used for every link. I know that the panda requires a login or plugins to function, and that lolis plus other sketchy shit is kept on there. But when you have stuff that's accessible on the regular gallery I don't know why people prefer to link to the panda first.
Vague contempt and hatred for each other.
Nobody here actually enjoys each other's company. It's a shitposting containment board.
/a/ does it because they're circlejerking weirdos.
>Luciel, the Eternal Lvl 92
This fucking prick should be a lvl 99, that lvl 92 tyrant status gives you the impression that he's going to be killable with lvl 60 skells. He topple locks everything you throw at him unless you have topple resist and evasion out the ass, fuck that guy. He's easily the most difficult boss in the game.
Supposedly there's some works with questionable tag(s) exists on sad, but not on the other. At least, that's the persistent rumor before the debacle with Fakku started or even until now.
I experienced this with Evangelion's incest doujin
The number of my favourite doujins that have been removed - even ones with no translation, even ones with absolutely no chance of any licensing bullshit - is fucking insane. The WORST part is, several of them still show up on searches, so you click it THEN it tells you the gallery's been removed. While still being there in the search.
That makes the most sense. I did assume it was something to do with the fact that it's a slight inconvenience if you don't know how to access the panda. I know but I never use it, it's slightly more faff to get on it than to just use regular.
Same as you anon, should've got Mario Kart or Yoshi, I could've at least used the multiplayer some day, worst part is I'd get less than half of what I paid in trade in value where I live
In Russian literature, it'd be called Poshlost - petty and vulgar evil.
Essentially wasting another anon's time purely out of meanness, but in the most petty, meaningless way possible.
To be fair the first, (and probably only) tyrant is incredibly easy, so it doesn't really give you a good reason to fear tyrants at that point.
ALso what do with red pollen orbs?
>It was basically Gaur Plains but without the buildup.
Did you miss that anon when he said with the flight module? You know how they had this giant mountain teasing you and then allowed you to fly there? I'd say that's a pretty big build-up.
I'm missing to AMs. Anyone got some hints because it feels like I've missed something. Got the orpheans.
but shulk set out for revenge.
He didnt want to kill him because he would be just like him, he didnt kill him because the two were pretty much doing there things for the same reason.
Fuck you, ever since release people are constantly talking about the game, except for some "x is my waifu" posts.
The game is really fucking good and has more than enough to keep us occupied with discussion
XCX threads are good
