Aaaaw yeah. Been playing for 40 hours now. Game is fucking masterpiece.
Based.Once you beat the game you can get T-elos as well.
>>545565602It's not, it's slow and boring as fuck, i only hope the second one picks up because i've been never so disappointing on a game before.Can't believe these fags did xenogears.
You did roll her on zeke right?
>>545565602Xenoblade 2 is a fucking masterpiece?yeah... no.
>>545568062yeah....yeah. You got filtered.
>>545568062XC2 > XC1
Gachashit was a mistake
>>545568863it's free though
>>545568682Agreed. X sequel when?
>>545568863You can finish the game without rolling for every rare blade.
>>545565602I want to play this game for booba; will I be disappointed? I've owned the game for 3 years and have only booted it up to jack it to Pyra. The combat seemed... broken to me. Is it? I've never played an RPG before.
>>545569291>never played an rpg beforethe fuck are you even doing here zoomer?
>>545568972Soon senpai, soon
>>545569291your dopamine receptors are fucked, son. that being said, the game introduces the combat little by little, it's fun once you have all the tools and the game finally let's you play at full throttle.
>>545569490Playing CSGO and VR titles anon. What about you?
>>545569291The booba draws you in, the gameplay and story keeps you. Yes, the combat is hard to understand and slow at first, but it gets better. Protip, keep arts recharge pouch items up at all times
>>545569624By tools, do you mean that there's things I could use to "break the game"? I like shit like that
>>545569291how the fuck have you never played an rpg before?
>>545569291You're fucking retarded. Just sell the game to someone who, unlike you, might actually play it.
>>545568274filtered by what? Stop using the cool slang to fit in
>>545568274I played XC2 till the end. It left nothing. It's 100% fanservice. Fun while it lasts but has absolutely 0 value as a story or as a game. 0 gravitas, ultra cliche characters, abrupt ending which resolves nothing. It's just a glorified ecchi. Maybe you should remove that massive dick from your mouth before telling someone that "they got filtered".
>>545569751oh if thats so you'll love the endgame then. It's literally all about breaking it. Onehitting ultrabosses and shit like that
>>545568863I don't get why people say this as if you have to pay for it lmao
>>545569857>abrupt ending which resolves nothingbait and never played it
>>545565602>masterpieceEh, no. The Switch has no masterpieces. But I do think this probably the best game on the Switch rn.>gets KOS-MOS after only 40 hoursFuck you.
>>545569769Just haven't bothered. Source games have taken up most of my vidya career, and I like games that give you that sense of freedom (most RPGs don't, from my experience)
>>545568246Why is the low-budget one a bobble head
>>545569857Not him but yeah that all sounds like classic filtered speak to me buddy. Maybe cawadooty is more your style
>>545569956gachashit either wastes your time or your money
>>545570062oh you are just a dotard then I get it.
>>545569291Anon if you just wanted to fap, you should've just saved up for the Pyra figure instead of buying the game.
>>545569956Because it was a mistake, free or otherwise, retard. The gacha aspect of the rare blades, along with with the field skills needed to traverse environments, are cancer.
>>545570062How old are you if you don't mind me asking?
>>545570164>dotaliterally any other Valve game is better than Dota
>>545570403Ricochet bros where we at
>>545570403but they killed csgo off in NA and saved valorant from being irrelevant. There are no valve games beside that anon
>>545570214Back when the game came out, it was on sale at Target, so I just went for it lol>>54557032322
>>545570502dead and buried
>>545569857literally never played the game lol
>>545565602I'm about to buy XC2, how do blades work? Do you equip them to party members or what? I haven't played a Xeno game before unless you count the PS1 demo. I always liked Kos-Mos though, how do you get her?
>>545570661man no wonder video games suck these days. Zoomers are literal retards and catering to them takes 0 effort.
>>545570502>>545570669I'm still holding on, bros
>>545570661Well it's impossible for you to be jaded if you literally have only played source games, try going and exploring literally every other genre of vidya and experiencing this wonderful hobby.
>>545570824Faggot>>545570936True. I really enjoyed Splatoon's campaign(s), is there anything out there like that?
>>545570936>>545570661don't listen to him. Just fucking turn off your computer and never come back here. You'll have a happier life.
>>545569751You could say that.
>>545571217well how am I wrong? You are a fucking retard. You laid it all out for us. All I did is call you out on it. You faggots are the reason the internet went to shit and now you are ruining video games too. There is no hope with tards like you.
>>545571349the games battlesystem is pure sex
>>545571349So weird seeing Sega Saturn RPGs with better combat.
>>545571515ouch your words are hurting me pls delete retard
>>545569956Retards don't get it, the Gacha system in XB2 is actually genius. It adds so much replayability since you're generally going to get a full set of rare blades very quickly, and makes each playthrough feel unique. The only problem was that opening a lot of orbs was time consuming in the beginning but they patched that by letting you skip the animation.
>>545570731You equip them to party members and then they are linked to them in combat, which decides your element and moves. There are blades that you get from the story obviously but at any point in the game you can use the gacha system to get new blades. Unfortunately kos-mos is one of the rare ones but you can use various strategies to boost luck later.
>>545570731Blades are tied to a gacha system. You get little cubes that go from regular, to rare, to legendary - regular means your odds to get a rare blade (the ones that don't look generic) are low, legendary means they are high. Each driver, or character like Rex, can equip 3 blades. However, Rex is not the only driver, there are 4 more, but actually 3, since Tora can only use Poppi. Before using a gacha cube, you need to pick a driver that will use the cube and whatever blade you get will be usuable ONLY by that driver. You do get some items that let you switch blade ownership, but they are limited. KOS-MOS is the hardest blade to get. You have a 0.01% chance to get her or something. It's a matter of luck. There is also a pity system that gives you a rare blade after 10 rolls or so, but KOS-MOS is excluded from it. Also, you can't get the same rare blade from a gacha cube, so no need to worry about repeats. I have put around 300 hours in Xenoblade 2 and don't have all the rare blades or KOS-MOS.
>>545571978>gacha adds replayability Oh look, an actual retard.
>>545571980>>545572089Shit, I hate gambling. Is it at least easy to gather the resources to do it? RNG never favors me.
>>545572089Good luck, it took me over 400 hours to get KOS-MOS. The Gacha system is legitimately broken.
>>545572341It's easy yeah, if you want every single blade you're going to have to grind though. The good news is that all blades have significantly higher chance to appear than KOS-MOS, it's better to think of her as a easter egg than anything just because of how rare she is.
>>545572459>>545571726Maybe try playing the fucking game instead of posting memes you saw on /v/, retards. there's nothing wrong with the combat.
>>545568682This is true.
>>545572605Well, it's not a deal breaker but I have been curious about how the blade system works for a while, I just got sick of trying to track down a physical copy of the game for nonrape prices so i'm going digital, fuck it, ya know.Always thought it looked fun.
>>545572341Blade cores are super common, even at the start of the game, just killing enemies will give you at least one every 3-5 fights. Most unique monsters will also have a higher chance to drop one and as the game progresses, you'll start getting more. I usually get at least 30 from 5 hours of play at chapter 4-5. Then once you get to the final chapters, you'll be able to get the uniques that drop legendary pretty easy. Using Driver combos will let you duplicate a monsters drops, so you don't even have to wait for fights to be over, just keep Smashing and get more. 99 Legendary cores in 30 minutes.
>>545572341There is, there's a animal you can feed over in Gormotti in the post game. If you feed him till he's maxed out he'll turn into a super boss. You can then proceed to grind this super boss to get 99 legendary cores in a shortish amount of time.t. Has all of the rare blades apart from the special ones from the arena and the Torna ones.
>>545572089>I have put around 300 hours in Xenoblade 2 and don't have all the rare blades or KOS-MOS.Have you tried actually farming for her? It seems like you've been busy doing stuff other than opening legendary cores.
>>545569094Lesbian Jewess of the bathtub, what is your wisdom?
>>545572836>>545572845I suppose you can carry over stuff in the dlc story right? Or is there a new game plus?
>>545565602don't forget to thank sakurai for reminding you to buy a game you should've bought 3 years ago
>>545572459I think you can disable a lot of the UI.
>>545569857absolutely based omegachad
>>545572962it's standalone game basically. It's also pure kino
>>545572594I gave up. I was replaying the game before Xenoblade DE came out and might go back to it, but I don't care about getting KOS-MOS.
>>545572808It's pretty fun, and the story is honestly great. It has it's fair share of problems though(japanese humor.webm), it's a love it or hate it kind of game.
>>545572845Oh yeah the game has a decentish amount of Blades you can get from sidequests so if you're not feeling up to grinding cores don't worry too much. You get cores at a decent clip and standard blades aren't useless even if they fall short of the rare ones.
>>545572985Look man, don't guilt trip me. I missed it the first go around then it just went up in price and here I am.
>>545572985I bought my switch a year ago and there is just too much to play so I only now got time for it. I'll be playing xc1 after that.
>>545572962You have both new game plus and a pretty expansive post game. New game plus lets you do some wild shit too.
I beat the game in 76 hours and had just enough rare blades to have 3 rares on the party members I used. Is the drop rate low or am I just unlucky? Does it get better in NG+? I was never really drowning in cores but I also never purposefully farmed for them. Is NG+ worth it? I usually don't replay big games like this but I saw you can get some neat blades specific to NG+. I was thinking of playing through Torna DLC first and then going back to the main game.
>>545572962There is a new game plus, it adds even more blades to the pool as well (aka blades from the story that obviously couldn't be in the main game because of immersion breaking).
>>545572938Anonymous peasants on the internet are to bow down to us before making such inquiry.
>>545572736https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XzkCmidjeHcMaybe you should try playing some good games.
>>545573032>>545573089I'm a subfag and a weeb so I don't think the humor is that bad. I just kinda slept on it until it was too late to get it cheap physically. >>545573210>>545573249Color me intrigued, how much is there to do post game?
>>545569857I played XC2 till the end. It changed my life. It’s 100% kinography. A great time all throughout with absolute value as a story and as a game. Insane gravitas, memorable cast, ending that I still think about to this day. It might as well be literature. I would recommend that you all experience this masterpiece before someone tells you “it’s just ecchi”.
>>545573230I think you're really unlucky, it's been a while since I played but I had 3 rare blades for everyone pretty early on. Did you miss all the side quest blades as well?
>>545573340I'll bite anon, here's your (you), so answer me, how did it change your life? what aspects make you think about it?
>>545571349>Oh come on, Herald can't be THAT overpowered>Oh, wait Dagas is there, never mindWhy give him to Nia, though?
>>545570273It isn't even done that well.https://xenoblade.fandom.com/wiki/Blade_Resonance#Rare_Blade_ProbabilitiesThe main thing being that effectively the pity mechanic only chooses select blades (Selected on save file creation) and once you have all of those 3 (even if you got them from non-pity pulls) the pity mechanic basically becomes mechanic that FORCES Commons.Which if i got shit right will happen every other (or every third) Pull if you spam Legendary Cores to try to get say KOS-MOS at the end game, i think the Blade goes back on the list if you release it though (This is why, if you release a Blade, you might end up keep on pulling it over and over, it is your Pity Blade, so whenever that you get 100 on the pity counter, you get it back.)
>>545573421A lot of them probably. I got kind of swept up in the story and ended up doing minimal side stuff which is why I'm not unwilling to do a NG+ run.
>>545573332Playing on CHAOS difficulty using your knowledge of the combat system and from what I've heard it also has extra new game plus quests. Oh you also have the challenge arena which you should only do once you actually understand the battle system. I burned myself shortly after grinding all of the rare blades I could in post game and haven't really tried out ng+ for myself.
>>545569568The cliffhanger is fucking killing me
>>545573332Post game is a few super bosses and you have the Land of Challenge stuff if you have the DLC, which let's you get things beyond the power of normal accessories from the base game.
>>545572902No. I would rather spend that time doing other shit, like blade affinities and doing NG+. >>545572985I got it on black Friday of 2018 at Walmart for $45 bucks, because never having played a Xeno game I was worried I would dislike the combat. I liked the game, the combat does have issues but I only became aware of them after playing the game, though the system itself is fine. Also, as I said before, really disagree with OP the game is a masterpiece. The Switch has no masterpieces, but this is the best game on the system and the closest to being one, I guess.
>>545573553there is no pity system though wtf are you talking about
>>545573729There is a pity system, you'll get a rare at 50, 100, 150 points if you haven't pulled a rare. Points are gathered from the type of core opened, with legendary being 50. So if you somehow get unlucky and don't pull a rare, you would get your first pity blade with one legendary core. This is an easy way to tell what your Blade chart is and what your pull rates are going to be.
>>545566026>Once you beat the game you can get T-elos as well.You may as well go into NG+ at that point to try to get the torna blades.
>>545570067Mythra's hair would look ridiculous if she shook her hai like that, so they probably made it more still.
GachaMerc missionsField skillsAll shit
>>545569857>abrupt ending which resolves nothingYou mean X or what? XB2 didn't have an abrupt ending.
>>545573081Just farm the ardun to get 99 legendary cores every 20-30 minutes and open them all. If you're using at least one Justice boosterper core you should get her after a few hours of grinding.
>>545574850>Having sex with your reanimated bodyWhat do you call that?
>>545569956People can only relate Gacha to the malicious intent the digital gacha games has playing on people's gamble habits.In reality the resonance system isn't even gacha even if it is inspired since it doesn't take any money from you other than paying for the game.
>>545573295People make fun of him, but video games since its conception has been "press a button, something happens".
>>545565602what game is this lol
>>545575529Xenoblade Chronicles 2
>>545575529Xenoblade 2 retard, read the thread
>>545569828>filtered by what? Stop using the cool slang to fit in
>>545575782>read the threadnah not when faggots like u tell me when i ask
>MFW I pulled Kos-Mos super fucking early on chapter 4 Morag on BoC>MFW I released her on accident because I was trying to release the duds to keep trying to pull tanks.
As a Xenogears fan it's really easy to spot fake Xeno fans. I haven't played Xenoblade 2, but I'm sure it's better than the dogshit that was 1.
>>545576165overall shit taste and opinion on something you don't know anything about
>>5455764191 was an affront to fans of Saga and Gears, perhaps the most disappointing game I've ever played. The fact Blade 2 makes so many posters angry is an assurance that the game is better than 1. 1 is worthless trash compared to its predecessors.
>>545573729There is though, it is just so shitty it is easy to not notice (especially since the factors are hidden) and then gets detrimental, i'll give you the gist though.Each Core Crystal generates points depending on Rarity when it is opened:Common: 1Rare: 25Legendary: 50.If you pull a Rare Blade, Any rare blade the counter is reset back to Zero (including the points generated by opening that particular crystal).Once the points hit 100 total it generates a Blade from a selection of 3 from a table that was decided when you started your Save (Along with which Rate Table your Save would use) and then reset back to 0, once hits 100 again it once again checks the table and if you don't have any it grabs one from the selection of three, where it gets interesting is if you HAVE all the Rare Blades on the table, because then it generates a guaranteed Common.I actually don't mind the idea of the Blade System since in theory it gives replayabillity since you won't get the same Blades at the same points depending on your luck (aside from Story/Sidequest Blades, which means you always get Wulfric for the most necessary Field Skills), i just think the way it actually works in practice is really janky with shit like Ideas and my own personal experience of generally just ending up with the same Blades in almost the same order because there is still general "Tiers" of rarity since some Rare Blades are consistently Common on most Tables. I'd say Group 4 is the most interesting Table, Fun Pity Group and rates that really turn shit on its head compared to the others by nerfing the shit out of the rate of my "The Usual Suspects"
>>545568863You can get through the game with just the blades that aren't gachaRex gets three story blades, but if you want him to deal big dick damage and have good elemental coverage, then give him Wulfric. He's good with spears.Morag Gets Brighgid and Aegeon. Give her Theory to have three dodgetank bladesNia is really only good for healing and breaking. Give her Vess. Zeke is good with Ether Canons. Give him Herald, Sheba, and maybe Praxis and Kassandra, too, for some variety.If you include guaranteed DLC blades, then you've got Elma/Shulk/Fiora to freely switch around, as well as Corvin and Crossette. Crosette is really strong on Zeke, almost KOS-MOS tier. Corvin and Elma are beast on everyone. Fiora is great on Rex and Morag. Shulk is best on Morag and Zeke. Really, the only Gacha blades that can compete with the guaranteed DLC blades are:Patroka (NG+ only)Telos (beat the game)Dagas (after sidequests)KOS-MOS (good fucking luck)Notable mentions to Adenine, Zenobia, Nim, and Agate if you can get her early for Rex. Every other blade is mediocre.
I'm about 60 hours in and while I really like it, it is FAR from being a masterpiece.I don't like the weapon system that much for example.I bought the blade that costs 500k, and after looking at the passive's it gets, as well as the design, I wanted to use it. But then I would have to start from scratch with weapon skills and it takes to long. So I put her on merc duty instead.And my party members are all just using one blade, because otherwise they just swap to a worse blade every time I use a blade art.And out of the 60+ hours of gametime, I bet not more than 10 hours has been main quests, less than half any quest.It's mostly just farming boring shit to get the passive upgrades for the various blades.Overall it is a good game, but it has so many annoying stuff.
>>545569291>I want to play this game for booba; will I be disappointed?There's plenty of booba. Female designs outnumber male designs like 3:1 because jap artists are coomers, especially the female artists. Dahlia's big bunny boobies are bigger than her head.
>>545571393Based.How the fuck did a retard who only plays "Source" games (basically he just okayed Half life or some shit? Cs?) ended up here?
>>545577326>And my party members are all just using one blade, because otherwise they just swap to a worse blade every time I use a blade art.a retard wrote this
>>545577326>Admit to playing the game extremely poorly>This is somehow the game's fault
>>545577326Oh boy, not to rail on your parade and go all "You are playing the game wrong" since you probably are trying to learn the game on your own (and that is more respectable then any cunt who looks shit up), but you really want to give your party more then one blade, even if it is of the same weapon type, because it means they will fire off moves more often because they will switch blade and continue attacking while shit recharges on the first one, it also means they can extend and help set up Driver Combos (IE: Break, Topple, Launch, Smash) for more damage, and since you are use several weapon types over the course of each battle they all develop equally.I mean, Mythra, Fiora and some other notable blades are exceptions. they naturally boost the fuck out of recharge and/pr give partywide bonuses so sticking with them is perfectly, but in the case of the former the AI will basically switch to Pyra randomly anyway so your might as well give it something else on top for more consistent performance and more elements for Chain Attacks and the like.Give it a try, it should speed shit up significantly and probably make the game feel better for you.
>>545572459I've seen this webm over 4 dozen times here, but I never noticed the Fingerless Glove Meter before. Is that new?
>>545577827But it's true.If I use my blade art, Morag swaps her blade so that she can combo into it, and she does it even if she doesn't have combo avaliable yet.And none of the other blades have as good damage, evasion or skills as Brigid. So using blade arts, makes Morag worse for the rest of the fight.Even if I give her a tank with Fire, she stil fucking swaps out.And if I don't give her other blades, then she looses out on stats.Fucking amazing design.
>>545573536>Why give him to Nia, though?Zeke is the best Axe user, but he has way better options for dealing damage. Dagas has mediocre specials, so it makes more sense to put him on someone else to buff Zeke. Female drivers have different AI settings, they prioritize blade combos, so you can easily get them to switch to Dagas and stay on him.
>>545578676you poor soul. Life must be fucking hell for you being this stupid.
>realized 20 hours in that I had been reading the flowchart for blade combos wrongWho /brain problems/ here?
>>545577164Based and bladepilled
>>545579043It is. But why don't you tell me what is wrong with what I said instead of just hurling insults.From what I can tell, drivers WILL change their blades to combo into your arts.And they tend to keep those new blades out for prolonged periouds after that.So if the blades you put in the secondary slots are not as good as the primary ones, then the driver will be weaker while those are out.And despite having 2 unique blades on Morag, neither of them are as good as brigid in terms of damage, skills or animation.
>>545578676>And none of the other blades have as good damage, evasion or skills as Brigid. So using blade arts, makes Morag worse for the rest of the fight.You know she can and does swap back to Brighid, right?
>>545577326I understand some of these sentiments, even if it doesn't sound like you get the battle system at all.There is a lot of time wasting bullshit in the game.
>>545581950Yes. But she stays with those other blades for far to long, and it is reducing her overall effectiveness.
>>545569857>all those seething repliesbased /m/ chad
>Hate Tora>Love Hana>Hate having to play her shitty nokia game for upgrades>Get another Tank character with Morag>Both her and her blade are coom friendly>Never use Tora/Hana again

>>545568246Is this the greatest moment in gaming history?
>>545583976Not that I like the gacha, but if you don't have the dedication you don't deserve her
>>545568246What the fuck is up with webms now?
If you pull Kosmos on Vandham and then let him die, do you have to NG+ to get her back?
I really hate how useful break, topple, launch, smash is. It feels like even though there are tons of rare blades and different playable characters I'd be an idiot to do anything other than Rex with Mythra, Roc, and an axe blade. The computer just fucks it up constantly.
>>545587796Pretty sure they don't let you pull with Vandham.
>>545587796You can't pull blades with Vandham. I know I tried.
Just rolled Dahlia with Nia.Those are some amazing tits!
>people not getting KOS-MOS after 400hThis is mathematically impossible, but okay. Are you guys just watching the clouds pass by? I know they're beautiful and all at night, lighten up by the World Tree, but come the fuck on.Opening 100 legendary cores gets you a bit over 50% chance of getting her. Farming and opening those 100 will take you like 1h10-20 at worst. So, no, mathematically, once you're late game/post game and have all the tools to get her easily, getting KOS-MOS should amount to 4 hours if you're very unlucky. Took 1h30 for me, as mathematically predicted, which is fucking nothing as far as jrpg grinding goes.
>>545587796you cant pull blades on vandham

>>545589259Congrats dude, they go well together. Have a screenshot.
>>545569568>has the strongest mech in the game bar disc cheese>still jobs
>>545568863I don't get how this is gacha when there are no microtransactions involved. If anything it's just grindy and rng based, just like every old rpg. Same shit as having an item be 0.01% drop rate.
>>545568246Couldn't they have smoothed this mocap at all? And why are anime artstyle's fucked up so hard in vidya? I've yet to see a single anime themed game with great fully realized graphics outside of arcshit fighters and it's not because of the smears or frame limitations. Arcsys are the only studio actually animating and modeling everything on their characters on par with realistic styled games from lip synching to expressions and facial features or even clothes. All of these other studios are just pasting eye textures onto a mannequin with the same noses and mouths and otherwise featureless faces. It only looks acceptable in screenshots from the front
>>545591885Or getting that fucking Pokemon with good IVs, or god forbid, getting that Shiny. But somehow it isn't a problem here.
>>545589915>1/200 chance times 100 attempts gives 50% chance guys!>therefore, after 200 attempts, you are LITERALLY guaranteed to succeed!Holy fuck have you ever heard of binomial distribution you absolute moron?

>>545583654whats her otehr jap names?
>>545592750Hana JSHana JKHana JD
>>545592120Yeah, same kind of deal. I did a full party once and I think I lost half my brain cells.
>>545591885it's just deferring the loot roll until later when the player clicks roll but, hell, thats what gacha is
>>545591939>comparing a fightan game to a 100h jrpg with an expansive world to create, with hundred of monsters to model and animateReally? And their face are far from featureless, they're extremely expressive, which is what matters.
>>545568062I think that the soundtrack and environments are godlike, gameplay is great but the game is killed by the excessive fanservice, annoying protagonist and some really cringey scenes. Take out some of the rare blades and select ultra cringe moments and it's pretty amazing. I wish that shit didn't make it into the game but it's also why OP and many others seem to like it...
>>545593785what the fuck am i looking at anon
>>545592473That's how maths works, basically, yeah.KOS MOS is a 0.714% base rate as your last Blade. Once you know that, you just apply a simple Bernoulli process. If you have 0.714% chance of pulling her with 1 core, it means you have 100-0.714 = 99.286% chance of NOT getting her.So let's say we're using 300 core crystals, which amount to 4h of farming I mentioned in my post, then you do 0.99286^300 = 0.1165 (https://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=0.99286%5E300)So you have 100-11,65 = 88.65% chance of pulling KOS-MOS after 300 cores, which amounts to a bit less than 4h of farming.And I was very conservative, as I said 1h20 to farm and open 100 cores. One is able to actually farm 100 cores in 20 minutes if you know what you're doing, and you should be, at this point in the game.Add in another iteration, with 400 cores, and you should come at like 96% chance of getting her. So, no, sorry, in NO world where maths do exists, it takes like 200h to get KOS-MOS. It's pure complete bullshit. Monolith devs know their maths more than the average retard watching clouds pass by complaining why he didn't get KOS-MOS. They knew what they were doing when setting the base rates, and it works.
>>545591939Arcsys' system only works because it's a fighting game played in 2D. The techniques used are essentially cheats that wouldn't translate properly to a 3D environment with dynamic lighting.The moccap is lazy because it's from a sidequest 95% of players address even going to have access to see it requires a gacha drop. And for a game with a modest budget they're going to focus their time and money on the big story cutscenes instead.
I'm trying to roll all the blades just do the multi-blade quests at chapter 10. are they any good in terms of character interaction?
>>545597343depends on the questsome suck MASSIVE ass (ursula), most are just ok, some are great (kora's quest has the retarded meme ending but the character interaction in it is ace)
>>545597175>And for a game with a modest budget they're going to focus their time and money on the big story cutscenes instead.This. i don't get why people don't understand this. jrpgs have a lot of just talk talk talk scenes or silly things that don't need AAA budget. It's a complete waste. And Takahashi already experienced this. Xenosaga I went all in to properly animate everything in every cutscene imaginable, and there were a lot. Guess what happened, game was castrated and Xenosaga II, which was supposed to be a part of Xenosaga I in the first place, was made into a separate game. And both sure as fuck XS II and XS III went away from that aberration of wanting to AAA animate everything. Other games that tried this also are utter failure, FFXIII or XV comes to mind. Can't say about VIIr as I haven't tried it yet, but it's also 1/4th of a game. Which proves the point even more, actually.
>>545597343Praxis and Theory have good quests that tie in with each other, and it feels to me like they had more effort put into them than the rest of the blade quests.Kora's has some good interaction between a number of different characters, and is kind of amusing (jank dancing included).
>>545593785I wasn't just nitpicking this scene but anime styled vidya design in general. I'm not expecting arcsys quality but other studios aren't even trying to meet modern standards with their anime styled games or at least aren't displaying good taste in making the decisions to hide their bad budgeting or ability
>>545568246japan was a mistake
>>545565602I really really want to play this but I want to finish XC1 first but the grind before the final boss is the most annoying thing ever.
>>545599951>Xenoblade>GrindingDid you not do any sidequests?
>>545598317I can't believe Xeno was reduced to this popcorn DBZ shonenshit.
>>545599951Just set the difficulty to easy :^)Either way you're at the final push so consider the idea of starting a new game as the reward for finishing this one and get 'er done.
>>545600139I did every sidequest in the game that was available to me, I'm still underleveled because the game is designed that way. 200+ threads on gamefag about this same issue, you're the outlier here.>>545600205I might just put it on easy just to see the end of the story.
>>545600491>I did every sidequest in the game that was available to me, I'm still underleveled because the game is designed that way.What? Are you on expert mode in DE, because otherwise that simply isn't possible. XB1 Wii was infamous for becoming completely braindead for completionists because doing all the quests left you hilariously overleveled. Happened to me on my first playthrough and all.
>>545600968Different anon here but I was also underleveled for final boss by a lot, might be because I didn't go out of my way to look for side quests after sword Valley for pacing reasons.
>>545598317Well from one extreme to the other that's not an excuse to wave away concerns about quality. If your studio can't create these eye-catching moments and also can't imply an air of quality throughout it's gameplay then why be surprised when people point out that something looks or plays poorly? FF and Square Enix in general are patently retarded and even their examples of quality fall flat under scrutiny of making decisions in good taste which is why they wasted millions on those products in the first place. We don't need full cycle animation on everything all the time we just need the expertise to make that possible for the moments that matter and then reuse those assets tastefully for nearly everything else. XBC2 still has that same cheap quality of budget games like atelier and it deserves to be pointed out since I want anime styled games with larger gameplay scopes that look good while not wasting money on mediocre cutscenes thinking that makes up for the whole game playing like berseria. Code vein is the same
>>545600968I literally just told you I did everything, and I'm still only level 72 at Lorithia.
Is Rex a cuck?
>>545568682XC1 > XC2 > X>>545572801No.
>>545602489Maybe playing anime games isn't for you anon. Stick to fighting games.
>>545571978>the Gacha system in XB2 is actually genius
>>545575294>In reality the resonance system isn't even gacha even if it is inspired since it doesn't take any money from you other than paying for the game.You're completely retarded, as is anyone else who says that.
>>545594230>excessive fanserviceNewspeak for "I'm a ninny afraid of titties"
>>545574676Yes it litterally is gacha you bootlicking subhuman parasite.
>>545602489Sorry to say that you won't find that in Xenoblade, then, probably never, even. They will focus their budget on shit that actually matters like world and music. Might want to look elsewhere. Only bigass budget jrpgs can give you what you want, unfortunately, focusing the budget on my graphix, they are utter shit and soulless. I'll take just the A or AA budget of Xenos instead.
If you like anime titties you really need to go to /e/, /h/ or /a/ if you can't keep it in your pants.
>>545603748Wrong thread janny.
>>545603748>oh no.. is that female anatomy?? HELP MEEE I'M GOING ISANNNEEEE!!!
>>545602489Yes but in doing that they either need to spend more time and money making the game, which is a bigger risk since it will require more sales to be a success and this you risk completely killing your series for trying to pursue quality, or you make your game way smaller in scope which works but then obviously the consumer who didn't care about graphics in the first place gets less game out of it.And if you cut even a single corner people will cherry pick your weakest point and spam hundreds of threads with it.If we require every game to be big budget massive undertakings, we're never going to see a new game ever again and it will all become soulless but profitable microtransaction platforms using only big brand names and with no hint of passion from anyone involved. These mid tier "AA" games are vital to making sure there will always be hidden gems out there for people to discover and developers getting to make what they really want to make.
>>545565602So how about them Xenosaga games
>>545604403They're actual JRPGs instead of offline MMOs, so...
>>545604761>>545604804I heard that the second game is the prime example of "more cutscene then game"
>>545565602Why is KOS-MOS Special 2 so fucking powerful.
>>545599951I had the opposite problem I was level 99 with everyone before I did the final boss and it was a push over.
>>545607173There's fucking 3 XC2 threads up right now, stop bumping this shit.
>>545602764this faggot is a ma-non.dont be a ma-mon
>>545571628>special spam with weapons that all play the same is pure sexYou XC2tards have such low standards it's pathetic
T-Elos with glasses activates my fucking neurons too hard.
>>545608169The glasses ruin her.
>>545608169I like it, but how the fuck does it make sense for her to have glasses?
>>545608003This shitpost might be fine for BOTW but not for XC2. The weapons all behave differently especially when animation canceling.
>>545608003>AA Cancel>Blade Combo>Driver Combo>Chain attack>Swap Recharge>Critical Healing>Chain Attack>Orb Punisher fucking scrub
>>545609106>Arts: Attack, attack + more damage when X (attacking from the side, from behind, etc), attack + AOE, starting to notice a pattern here?Yeah they play the same. Specials are the same too aside from animations.
>>545603332Prove to me why it is gacha and not a random loot system?If you can't you're the dumb one.
>>545609781They don't. Some weapon types are harder to time when canceling, some are slower to gather special meter. You're just talking about Rex.
>>545610027>and not a random loot system?Because you don't have to roll for a weapon with crystals as payment in a loot system you fucking retard. God, you people are just so fucking stupid.
>>545610473They do. >Some weapon types are harder to time when canceling, some are slower to gather special meterWow auto attack timing and meter filling. Fucking dumbass, is that the best you got? Their main abilities (Arts and Specials) are all the fucking same. Minor differences wouldn't change that sheep.
>>545608003Every character has different arts qith. weapon type.Are you being retarded?
>>545610982What about Diablo? According to you, that is gacha.
>>545611391They don't. The root of this stupid line of argument is that hurr durr all melee weapons retardation.>Fucking dumbass, is that the best you got?I'm here talking about a game I played. You're here talking about a game you never touched until Pyra got into Smash. Stop acting so hardass about trying to troll someone.>Their main abilities (Arts and Specials) are all the fucking same.Between each driver? They're different. Zenobia on Zeke and Zenobia on Nia are very different.
>>545565602I'll always be annoyed they cut the planned six games down to three
>>545614881The world just wasn't ready.
ITT: Trannies getting filteredbased xenochads
>>545614881>I'll always be annoyed they cut the planned six games down to threeHonestly when did that ever work out? Xenogears got fucked, so did Saga, Shenmue is never ending and I can't think of anything else off the top of my head
>>545565602Congrats, before the DLC blades came out the last one I got was Newt actually not KOS-MOS, which is weird because it seems everybody gets KOS-MOS last.
>>545616902I'm actually missing a lot other blades. Kos-mos is like my 6th pull or so
XB2 = XB1 (I have not finished X because I really didn't like playing it on an emulator)Saga 3 > Saga 1 > Saga 2GearsGears being like that does not mean it is worse than the others. It just doesn't have a Gears 2.
>>545617841very based and educated taste. I bet your dick is huge
>>545618783>I bet your dick is hugeNah, it is fairly average. I just like the Xeno-games.
>>545607532What about alvin and the manon?
>>545608003No, you are just a retard how couldn't understand it
