Oh yeah, that happened.
>>625377016Imagine being worse than XC2 and XC1
>>625377016soulless trash trying too hard to pander to amerimutt zoomers while also trying to pander to "older" """fans""".
Just reached the desert.The environement design is absolutely atrocious, you are baited into wandering pointlessly towards the bright light shit so that it wastes your time and makes the areas take longer to explore compared to how tiny and straightforward they are, and the geometry is disgustingly ugly with muddy cliff textures everywhere that tease you into thinking you can climb them. I cannot believe such horrible environment design was made by the same developer that made the pure verical glory that are XC2 and XCX regions. They regressed back to shitty XC1 map design of fake open field corridors that are bounded by ugly cliffs.The story is boring and formulaic, the red dudes are le epic manipulators and the two warring factions are le manipulated good guys, so original. The first Moebius dude might as well wink towards the player as he teases the story during his fight, it's so tropey. The cutscenes are boring, no sountrack or background sounds, the characters don't move or express themselves and stare blankly at such regular intervals that it made me think it was a dub to original audio desync.
>>625377016Easily better than XC2 it's not even funny
>>625377016Imagine having your themes of undying love, parenthood, and moving onward into uncertain futures done better by an action game that can be completed in a fraction of the time it takes to play your pseud-slog.
>>625377016Pretty good game
is this a falseflag thread or something
>>625377016Nah it's the best game by the trilogy. Why it broke the contrarians on /v/? Who knows. But it's brilliant.
>>625377016great game until the devs became obsessed with Miogotta respect ruining your franchise just to give your waifu more screen time
>>625377016extremely forgettable and shitty game. there's a reason why 2 is still talked about, still getting figures, and still getting crossovers. spoiler: it's because xenoblade 2 is the best in the series.yes I will be buying the Pyra and Mythra amiibos.
>>625377016Ugly censored girls in JRPG = dead game. It’s why XC2 is the best
>>625378015>it's because xenoblade 2 is the breast in the series.FTFYcan't wait for men to die off
>>625378201>can't wait for men to die offYurifags and haremfags are just the same fucking people aren't they?
Boring gameplay and shitty class system.XC2 is so much better
>hype it up as a grand crossover between xb1 and 2>ends up not even mattering at all and you could easily not even realize that xb1 and 2 are connectedthe world was also boring as fuck
>>625378308Haremchad here, no we are not the same.
Muh waifus. Make the next one a dating sim, it’s what this fanbase seems to want anyways.
>>625377016It did and I loved every second of it, the DLC expansion will be even better.
>>625377016If only they didn't remove all the fanservice, such a shame.
>>625377731There is a genuine point to be made about the lack of urgency in Chapter 7 or the blandness of Origin's visual design.But it is the best game in the trilogy, I agree
>>625378972>chad>man who spent his last days on his knees getting poked in the butt by musclebound men
>>625379443There was plenty of fanservice though, it was pretty much an homage to tokusatsu and there was a good amount of subtle Xenogears references too along the way.The beginning of chapter 6 gave me Disc 2 flashbacks.
>>625380234Don't be duplicitous. The fanservice from previous games is all gone.
>>625377275Glad other people are noticing this. Even compared to XC1, it's incredibly lacking in environmental design styles. Mechonis and Agniritha were amazing to see. Everything in XC3 is just ugly and shits on previous games and what they tried to do. Erythia Sea is the biggest disappointment in the whole game. I don't think there is a single area that I didn't hate for various reasons.
>>625380590Nope, it pays respects to Xenogears the same way the previous games did and I appreciate it.
Honestly if they were gonna make this, I would’ve rather gotten an X sequel.
>>625380590>He didn't get the Machine assassin class
>>625381206>but but SeguriTry harder.
>>625377016I liked it a lotI think the thing is that XB2 is most well known for stuff that mainly came through in the last few chapters. XB3 is a lot more consistent but the emotional peak is at the 2/3 mark, not the last 10%.XB1 is kind of in the same boat but the stellar intro at least gets talked about.I think 3's strongest area is its side quests but you'd actually have to do them in order to have them be memorable. Most people who play games never finish them (to 1's benefit). Tons of fan-artists never even play the games (to 2's benefit)3 has issues but its side quest writing is the best in nearly any JRPG I've played
>>625381495>He didn't get the bathing suits
>>625381531the spongy spud quest made me want to kill myself
>>625378015people only talk about Pythra's tits, not Xenoblade 2. X and 1 get talked about more than 2
>>625381665>But but, DLCNot part of the base game bub.
>>625378972That harem shit makes no fucking sense for Rex to begin with altogether. I'm hoping that expansion to 3 reveals he only married Pyra and 2 new characters get introduced as they were the ones that took the picture.
They just had to make new Pyras and Mythras.
>>625381845>He didn't get the Machine assassin class>>625381886This is some next level copeHoly shit lmao>That harem shit makes no fucking sense for Rex to begin with altogetherIt makes a ton of sense actually
>>625377016Unfortunately because of the widespread popularity of these games, the author will likely never move back to the richer characters and themes of Xenogears and Xenosaga. Hopefully things change one day.
>>625381886Why not? They all like him, just get together and don’t fight. Everyone is happy.
>>625381997>It makes a ton of sense actually>Mythra's child has a crystal in the forehead, and neither Mythra or Rex has that feature at all>Nia was already rejected and told Rex to forget about that confession to the point of pushing Rex towards Pyra and Mythra at the end of 2 to show she moved on from her love for himEnding screen after beating the game is merely a prototype because Xenoblade 1 remaster has the whole cast together and 3 will get one too when NG+ comes out
>>625380590Yep, all gone.
>>625377016Feels like everyone liked it but few loved it. Xenoblade 2 had endless discussion because many both loved and hated it. It's also the first game in the series to feel like 'just another Xenoblade game'.
>>625382393>All covered up>DLC is the only one that isn't3 is completely dogshit in the art style department, both in character design and world design when you compare it to 1, X, and 2.
>>625377649It's bait either way.
>>625382393>4 out of 6 of those are fully clothed>2 out of 6 is dlcThe cope is real.
>>625381815>X>being talked aboutlol, lmao even
>non binary character>turned a white ginger shota into an ugly 1000IQ black>black male white female pairingWOWOWOW JAPAN IS SOOOOOO BASED AND ANTI WOKE!!!!!
>>625382306>Mythra's child has a crystal in the forehead, and neither Mythra or Rex has that feature at allWhat??? Where are you getting this from?>Nia was already rejected and told Rex to forget about that confession to the point of pushing Rex towards Pyra and Mythra at the end of 2 to show she moved on from her love for himRex never outright rejected Nia. The whole point of those post-battle banter bits between him and her blade form is that he acknowledges that she may have more feelings for him and wants to have a more in-depth conversation about it.>when NG+ comes outuhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
>>625382393Monica is by far the most buxom girl Xenoblade has had next to Dahlia. And Monica is a main-story character as well.I'll take a canonical milf over a side character design>>625382518I remember when you faggots were insisting that there wouldn't even be swimsuit DLC
>>625382493The thing with 2 is that it was the definition of "rent free" in game form, the people that hated it couldn't move on from telling people that they hated it in the end giving it more publicity which is partly why people kept discovering it years later(and why it had the legs it had).
>>625382797>What??? Where are you getting this from?The picture with Rex and everyone, did you seriously not notice the feature of Mythra's child? The baby has a turquoise like crystal in it's forehead. Neither Rex or Mythra has that type of feature. And later on in 3, you meet a blonde male with a very similar feature.
>>625383426Here's the photo, please circle where you see the gem on the baby's head
>>625383602It's very hard because the image is blurry but here
>>625382576Sorry bud, I don't autistically take screenshots of everything and just rushed together a collage of what I found on google images. Are you autists really going to make me go through the game and capture my own screenshots?You guys are absolutely fucking insane. It's like pointing at Pic related from XC2, ignoring everything else, and then screeching that XC2 ruined fanservice and that everyone is all covered up!
>>625383779Between the eyes, a bit further up. It's better to see here.
>>625377297It's not but okay.
>>625382393This is sad bro. Looks like any JRPG you ever turn on these days. There's a reason the trannies don't seethe over 3.
>>625382393You're talking to the autistic skin exposure fags. To them, sex appeal is directly measured by how little clothing a woman is wearing, nothing else matters. Literal child mentality. Ethel and Monica's milk tanks somehow don't count because they're wearing military clothing.
>>625381997>It makes a ton of sense actuallyNTA, but c'mon. The ending of the game was literally called "Boy Meets Girl". The likely scenario is that they saw how nice those initial December sales figures were, combined with the thirsty waifufags on social media and made the cynical corporate choice to just go for broke on it.
>>625384324>skin tight "military" clothing suction cupped to their body as you can clearly see their features through it and they bounce and jiggle with wild abandon in full fanservice modeThese losers probably think Taimanin is woke or something.
>>625382493>the people that hated it couldn't move on from telling people that they hated itMy memory is that this dynamic was flipped within maybe a few months, people insisting it was an untoppable masterpiece that shat all over 1 like obnoxious cunts and going apeshit when told that wasn't the case.
>>625383803>Ignore the fanservice by looking at nonfanservice charactersMan, the cope on this one.
>>625378015>there's a reason why 2 is still talked aboutPorn threads are not "talking about" a game. XC3 gets as many threads as XC1 and XCX.
>>625386584>Ignore the fanservice by looking at nonfanservice charactersSo... like people do with 3?3 had less fanservice, it didn't have none at all. There is literally less than zero chance, in my mind, that Monolithsoft was genuinely "compromised" or somehow "brought under the control of" Americans, so the idea that the lack of fanservice is somehow a betrayal and not just "what Monolithsoft wanted to try next" is silly to me.
>>625384903>"they're in control of their sexuality"
>>625386426In general in /v/ it was a response to bait and falseflagging with more baiting and falseflagging. See this very thread, it's about 3, yet 2 got brought up.
>>625386823>There is literally less than zero chance, in my mind, that Monolithsoft was genuinely "compromised" or somehow "brought under the control of" Americans,That's because you're a close minded retard. Even Nintendo at the top has said they communicate to self censor their own games now. 2 was surprisingly popular and it got their attention this time. The next game was clearly toned down from all the troons crying on the internet about XC2 sexualizing all the girls too much.
>>625381886So you can stop being retarded:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CvbliEAMMMYhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_9LOFqt9tQIPost-Battle DialogueRex :"Hey, Nia. About that thing you said that one time... I, uh, well..."Nia: "Huh? Oh, right! Hehe! You're asking now? Now's not the time, we can talk later."Nexus ForceNia: "This is where I belong."Rex: "All together now!"Pyra: "Our bonds are as one!"Union SwordPyra: "We move forward together!"Rex: "We fight for our future!"Nia: "With these hands, we'll seize it!"
>>625387315>no you see they had this amount of fanservice once that means they are obligated to produce that amount for the rest of time or they're COMPROMISED1DE did not alter any outfits, all it did was slightly modify how jiggly Sharla was which could just as easily have come from an engine change. 1DE came LONG after 2's success. What fucking gives?
>main protag from this has sex and impregnates catgirl>main protag from previous game bangs and impregnates 3 girls at the same timeHoly kino
>>625386823>3 has fanservice>Posts nothingNotice how I have a constant stream of fanservice outfits to post for the other games? Not in 3, nope.
>>625384903Except no outfits in 3 look remotely similar to Taimanin.
>>625377115>>625377218>>625377275Seething Xenoblade 2 cucks.Your waifus suck Rex dick.Xenoblade 3 is fun and a true love story.
>>625387553I'm not the guy you were arguing with, but you'd have to retarded to think there's 0% chance they're not compromised. Nintendo owns them, Nintendo gets to tell them what to do and Nintendo has communicated aloud that they'll step in to ease the process of localizing to the West ie. if troons are crying, let's fix that next time.
>>625387739You already said "no no, that doesn't count" with respect to examples you were provided, so why should I even bother to stoop to your level? You are not arguing in good faith. You have convinced yourself you live in the universe where Monolithsoft was personally overrun by american ideals after 2 got them too much attention... and yet somehow did not choose to editorialize 1DE at all, despite that such would normally be completely fair game... and that you will never see boobs in a Xeno game ever again.
>>625384903>Based Taimanin chads dabbing on XB2 babies.
>>625387908>redditor thinks 3 is the bestOf course.
Are the people who like the Rex harem shit 2fags or 3fags?
>>625384709It makes sense in the sense that, while I'm sure Rex chose just one girl at the end of XB2 (whoever you chose in Chapter 8), he likely shacked up with the other two at a later date.I'll put it another way: all three were clearly romantic interests for Rex and given the life-changing journey they just went on, I doubt that Nia and the other one would just move on.>>625383779I literally don't see anything.Are you maybe mistaking the shadow of the baby's hair in front for this gem?Because that baby doesn't seem to have anything on its forehead resembling a rock.
>>625388218Fanboys of 3 definitely wouldn't like haremshit since anything even remotely anime is vile to their americanized sensibilites, so I'd say it's mostly 2fags and even then not all fans of Xenoblade 2 like the harem.
>>625387953"Next time" was 1DE. 1DE's outfits were UNALTERED, and in fact, they went ahead and gave you the option to use whatever outfit you wanted so bikinis weren't even suboptimal.
>>625388093Xenoblade 2 sucks ass in spite of the coom, not because of it.Character designs and music were the only good things about 2. The writing was atrocious and the characters were BORING.
>>625377016oh shit you just reminded me I bought it and never opened it lol, it's in a box somewhere
>>625388218The section of 2fags who put cooming above anything else as far as characters go
>>625387987>If I pretend to be stupid and not know what fanservice isAnd now cope with gaslighting, pathetic.
>>625389098>fanservice is whatever I say it is, I say xenoblade 3 has no fanservice, therefore whatever Xenoblade 3 has isn't fanserviceGaslighting.
>>625388485>The writing was atrocious and the characters were BORING.Bold of you to admit to getting filtered
>>625388440In a bit of irony, being able to choose outfits was a thing to appease the troons going back to X."Fashion Gear" wasn't unlocked until you beat the game in the Japanese version of X. It's unlocked by default in the Western versions because fanservice is icky and I don't want that.
>>625389306Do you have any real reason to believe this was the case in X, or was it just that NoA wound up making a decent change by chance? Broken block and all that?
I'm stuck on "The Castle Beckons" quest, can't seem to get past the boss fights with their excessive summons. How to git gud?
To all the conspiracy dipshits in this thread who won't shut up. Let me clear things up.Tifa was censored in FF7 REMAKE by SE because they have a retarded department full no fun allowed femcels.Xenoblade 3s team was just stepping back from the ridiculous mobage design bullshit from Xenoblade 2 on thier own accord.
>>625382393God I want to pinch Mio's chubby hips so bad.
>>625387628>main protag from previous game bangs and impregnates 3 girls at the same timeOne of them was also a catgirl.
>>625389394The game had its outfits censored. And not just Lin.It's actually very bad cause they locked off the "Support Missions" in its place. Support Missions which are near worthless after you've beaten the story mode and are available from the start in the Japanese version.I don't need lvl10 Support Missions after I've punched Luxaar to death.
>>625377016It's a weird game. I think as far as casts go, it comfortably has the best overall, and so its character moments usually land. The overall story spends 4 or so chapters spinning its wheels, however - reaching the city should have come much sooner, and the gained time should've been used to flesh out the underbaked content from the last 2 chapters. Gameplay wise I think the combat, once you finally unlock enough classes, takes off and is quite fun to dick around with, but it takes some time to get there and even then it's not perfect (chain attacks are a pace killer, for example). I think the weakest aspect overall was how the maps were designed - the incentive to explore really isn't there when there's so few secret spots or generally visually unique places to find, and outside a few exceptions they're not too interesting to navigate either. That said, I'm glad field skills got the axe and were replaced with those Metroidvania-style skill unlocks from heroes.
>>625389218>Muh Malos >Suffocating babies is badass>World ending hissy fitsYeah, so deep those villians. Just admit you like the hot designs and nothing else. I can respect that
>>6253882182fags. The harem reveal unironically spat on the highly emotional and monogamous breakup ending scene of 3, with its extreme wish fulfillment ending for Rex. I cannot think of a worse moment to reveal that bombshell photo, it should have saved for Nia's ascension quest. It just throws people right out of the ending of the game.
>>625390047Not sure which part of this post is more retarded.
>>625389835>posts coom>pretends to have deep tasteskek
>>625389550Or they got pressured by the NoA troons which is why we have a game with no fanservice in it. That's why Mio is wearing stockings and Eunie has no cleavage.
>>625387380>big romantic interraction boils down to generic shonen dialogue about not giving up and fighting for the future>still involves the other girlWow, such amazing romance. Such chemistry.
>>625382676yes, it gets mentioned a lot when talking about exploration and open world design. And again, nobody talks about Xenoblade 2, they talk about Pythra
>>625387380>Battle dialogue is now considered romance
>>625389835Name a JRPG you think has good writing
>>625390332What am I wrong about? The photo reveal is absolutely a huge tonal clash with everything else going on in the ending.
>>625391006I'm going to assume this is a troll or something
>>625377016Its far better than XC1 and 2
>>625391067He's just mad that you called his- Oh, I mean "Rex's" harem stupid and tone deaf.
>>625390047>unironically spat onlmao y u so mad
>>625377115Bit worse than 2 overall, much better than 1 definitive. Cant wait for story expansion dlc
>>625377275Huh, didn't think anyone would remember this.
>still mad about rex's harem
>>625390047You put too much stake in that photo. It literally doesn't matter, doesn't affect the game what so ever, you're just too dense.. Not too mention the harem ending was confirmed during 2 anyways, you just weren't paying attention.
>>625392273>implying he even played 2, or even 1
>>625392273>the harem ending was confirmed during 2 anyways
>>625391714>>625392273Neither of these posters read that I said the harem was REVEALED at the wrong time.>Not too mention the harem ending was confirmed during 2 anyways, you just weren't paying attention.Not in a way that created any sort of fan consensus. I'm pretty sure more fans thought Nia was rejected than otherwise. Do you not remember how much Nia was compared to Melia in that regard?>doesn't affect the game what so everThat would be true if it didn't break up the most emotionally moving ending in the Blade series.>>625392387Wtf, yes I have dumbass. I have even more hours in 2 than 3.
>>625377016Mechanically it was great and I liked the characters and a good chunk of the music. Seriously, ACE deserves a medal for Mobius Interlink. But for some reason most of the game feels a lot less memorable than the last 3 games. I haven't played 2 in a couple years, but I could probably navigate Tantal like the back of my hand. I can barely remember the area names for 3.
>>625378778>worst world design>worst enemy design>worst villains>worst ending>worst musicand it's still better than XC2
Just fucking make a sequel to X or a whole new Xeno series but with fucking aliens and not a warped version of Earth.
>>625390876>it gets mentioned a lotDoubt.
>>625391067Is this the new "Rex was sad in the ending of 2?"
>>625393316>sad vocal track begins to play>Keves and Agnus men and women each stand separate from each other>Noah and Mio say they each made their dreams come true, and have their farewell kiss>Sena is barely holding back tears at being separated from "Lanzy">Taion falls to his fucking knees at the prospect of losing Eunie>Riku and Manana are sobbing>everyone runs back towards each other ineffectively, even though they know there's nothing they can do, this is the bittersweet future they chose>HEY BY THE WAY, REX KNOCKED UP THREE BLADE BADDIES ON THE SAME NIGHT>sad vocal track continues to play as the worlds drift apartYou're kidding yourself if you think there isn't a massive tonal clash here. It seriously distracts from the rest of the ending, just look how much it affected conversation about it here.
Haremniggers need to fucking hang. All they’re going to do going forward is complain whenever the newest entry in the series doesn’t fulfill their sex fantasies, and call it censorship.
>>625389193I love all 3 games. No, X doesn't exist.
up until chapter 5/6 its my favorite xenogame, then it settles behind 1 overall. DLC could save it tho as King
>>625392717I still think you put too much stake. Even if you want to claim it was revealed there.I get that a lot of fanbase didn't realize it but they were to caught up in the Nia cuck meme to realize what was going on.
>>625395608Tell me one reason I should be satisfied with this character romance that they actually didn’t bother to commit to in an 80 hour story beyond spurring on hentai.
>>625394867It would be a tonal clash if all four were there, but there's only Nia left. At least in what respects to Noah and Mio there's the "hope" that they'll reunite again in the future.
>>625395198Rent free.Anything I dislike about 3 had nothing to do with harem faggotry.>world design is boring and bland compared to 2, and is not even as good as1, just throwing basic plains and basic mountain areas at you and nothing is really as awe inspiring as the areas in 2>world theme is extremely limiting with every village you see just being variations of the same outpost>pacing is terrible with the first half being linear as hell and most side quests crammed in the last act of the game>characters are boring and suffer from the theme limiting them as well as all they talk about is impending doom>story doesn't live up to expectations and finale isn't a good closure, asking more questions than it answers.And most importantly>wasn't a grand adventure but felt like an epilogue from start to finish
>>625396136Not my job. Ask monolith. I can't change the fact it happened.
it happened and it was awesome
2 > 1 >>> 3Don't even wanna play 3's dlc desu since it's more prequel stuff.
People who hate xbc3 are self-hating incels
>>625395608>but they were to caught up in the Nia cuck meme to realize what was going onEVERYONE agreed that Nia got turned down until that image got revealed. You truly are the Niafag we all laughed at, there's no other reason.
>>625396325>Don't even wanna play 3's dlc desu since it's more prequel stuff.We don't know that yet.
>>625392552You are a dense retard, yes. Rewatch.
>>625396862not him but its obviously going to be prequel stuff featuring the founders, the main story made a big deal about them
>>625377016Not even a Xenoverrated Fan, but the hype really fell off on this one. People on this board still can't shut up about 2, but I rarely see anything about 3.What went wrong?
>>625388485>The writing was atrocious and the characters were BORING.It's ironic this is the narrative 3fags want to peddle considering the climax of that game, basically the last couple of chapter, are by far the worst Xenoblade has been in a narrative and writing context.
>It's a "white boys being contrarians" episode
>>625396603I fucking agreed that the majority of the fanbase thought NIa got cucked. Doesn't mean they were right. If you literally just fucking look at what is said in 2 you see that the harem always included Nia. >>625396991Not really. It's not like Torna where a majority of the story revolves around the events that happened then.
>>625396603not my fault all of you clueless minority idiots were born so utterly retarded, that you clung to such wrong beliefs.
>>625396862Couldn't possibly be anything else.
>>625396991> the main story made a big deal about them> only given any major attention in ONE scene
>>625397396to make you want to learn more about them and buy to DLC to do so
After 3 I don't want Monolith to make Xenoblade 4 next.Do something different.
>>625377016It did and it was great too.
>>625392717Ah, sorry, reread your post.yeah, at the very ending, it's a little TOO crazy given that the focus is on the separation of Agnus and Keves and the party saying goodbye.I agree with you, it should have been revealed at the end of Nia's ascension quest
>>625396991>>625397379Could be some kind of epilogue.>>625397554Based on what Takahashi said when 3 came out 4 won't be related to the trilogy.
>>625397476You don't think the majority would be more interested in a sequel DLC? You really think a prequel DLC is more appealing to people who played the game?
>>625396230If it has nothing to do with you then why complain? I'm talking about the very real, 2secondaries ITT who are complaining about how 3 was an affront because they couldn't beat off enough while playing it. Yet giving them their harem will ensure that they stick around in the future and complain when their micropeens aren't getting enough love.
3 was bad.On its own it's ok, but compared to 1, X and 2 it's not good.
>>625397924>>625397923There is no story to tell with an epilogue
>>625394867 It's just a sentimental picture of her friends. You're projecting your own REX GIGACHAD impression onto the game.
>>625398504Epilogue-fags just want Memberberries, which base 3 already had too fucking of.
1 > 2 > X = 33 was so mediocre that i'm replaying 2 right now.
>>625395198I don't love the harem end either. It doesn't even seem to have been the original intention, with how Nia pushes Rex towards the Aegises in 2's ending. But they must have started yielding to how popular Nia was with fans, making her appear in that start screen together with them after release. I wouldn't be surprised if Nia is internally popular at Monolith too, considering how Mio also became the main girl of 3. I always assumed the initial intention for after Pyra and Mythra split up (something else they decided upon pretty late in development as far as I understand it) was supposed to be deliberate ambiguity, or else imagining Rex going on to waifu the one whose name he chose earlier in the game. They gave up the easy fix of Pneuma combining Pyra and Mythra into one girl for some reason, and then considering Nia's own popularity and romantic feelings, I guess they felt the harem ending was the best way to tie all of this up. I really think it's just the product of some very uncertain devs trying to please as many people as possible here.
XC2 didn't need a sequel
XC1 didn't need a sequel
>>625399063XC1 didn't need a sequel either
>>625398853I forgot to mention how odd it is that they make a deliberate point of saying that Rex likes Pneuma's hairstyle the most, only for that form to be trashed and Pyra and Mythra to return now as separate entities. Something strange was definitely going on when they were deciding upon how 2 should end. Again, I'll assume they were trying to please as many people as possible and figured that the split Pyra + Mythra end would go over better with anime figure-buying fans than Pneuma alone, with Pyra and Mythra's designs erased instead.
>>625399125Then why do they keep making direct sequels?
?? It's a good game. 2 is still the best though.
>>625399290because X bombed and nostalgia sells
>>625399210It isn't odd, it's on the genes.

>>625401576>don't forget that Censorblade is blacked tooDon't worry that aspect wasn't forgotten about.
>>625390481Maybe its because both of those characters are canonically younger than 10 years old
>>625401926>>625401697Snoy, why are you even trying?

>>625396862That better be copium Pyra's sipping on, because the DLC is 100% going to be Founders shit
>>6253971063 Is less meme-able than 2, has less sexy women than 2, and it's story fumbles the ball right at the end, leaving a lot of people with worse opinions of it overall.Once 4 drops, if it's even slightly better than 3, no one will ever talk about it again.
>>625406298Probably but we can't be 100% certain.>>625406524>less meme-able than 2Also less meme-able than 1.
>>625406524Rex should have stayed a manlet, since all shonen MCs are manlets.
>>625396991Not really.They're mentioned in the memorial hall in the City and they're somewhat related to Z but honestly they're not nearly as important as Jin and the Aegis war was to XB2's main plot.Like, the entire motivation for Jin and Malos and Amalthus is set down in The Golden Country. Founder DLC wouldn't even deal with things related to the protagonists OR stuff related to the antagonists in a way that's more than what we already got. The founders themselves don't really influence N in a major way beyond what we see in 3's Main Story.It would be a major waste of resources to make a DLC story about them when their tale XB3 is basically agnostic to who they were or what they didRemember, the Founders created the SECOND City. You could remove them altogether and just say N failed to take the first City and the story of 3 and N change almost none at all
>>6253986203 had almost non Memberberries beyond some location names and some end-game stuff.If this is the end of this trilogy, I want some ME3 Citadel-tier fanservice. I want to see Malos come back, I want Shulk and Rex to have an arm-wrestling competition, I want to see Poppi QtP2t
XB3 was too safe and low risk in its design. Battle system was boring, no chaining stuff together or anything. It's a simple algorithm. >try and start a combo with a break>use fusion arts>spam interlink>save chain attack for when you're about to die and get free heals for your team or use it at the end if for bonus expIt was just boring. Final boss sequence was still a lot of just standing around waiting for things to fill up. Normally that doesn't bother me, but it felt like a huge step backwards from XB2. People give XCX battle system shit but at the end of XCX it was a mad scramble to select moves as fast as possible. XB3 was just a lot of standing around. Exploration sucked. Desert, forest, generic biome. XB2 had a lot of really beautiful places, you got to go inside a titan, etc. XB1 had Bionis and Mechonis which were pretty cool. XCX had so much shit that made you want to explore. XB3 is just a bunch of generic biomes. It sucks. There's some holes you fall into and find hidden caves. That's about all I ever found. XB3 was just too safe, too low risk. Nothing odd about the characters. They weren't bad, but much more closer to stereotypical JRPG characters than Rex, Zeke, etc ever were. XCX, you are a retard if you played it for the story or characters since the exploration and world is what made it amazing. It was by far the most disappointing Xenoblade I played. >we have to stop the EVIL CYCLE!!is the most generic Japanese storyline you can ever get and that's what XB3 revolves around. The big gimmick was changing characters classes and all it boiled down to was >oh I lost a match I'll convert an attacker into a tank or healerand then you win. Even on hard mode without using bonus exp. What a disappointment XB3 was. I hope the next console Nintendo makes flops so we get an XB2 or XCX style game again.
>>625377115It plays better than 1 and isn’t dragged down by gacha + field skills, but it’s mediocre otherwise. People seethe too much about it though. It’s fine if it’s simply okay because Monolith made enough money off of it to start making X2. haha
>>625408431>It plays better than 1 and isn’t dragged down by gacha + field skills,Did you even play the game? XB3 has field skills that include such marvels as walking up steep hills. It's just so fucking safe, sterile, and boring.
>>625408637But 3’s field skills aren’t done in the same way as 2’s. You don’t have that whole “blade pops up, says a line, skill gauge fills up, thing happens” thing. And it’s not done in a way that pervades the entire game. You do a hero quest, get the skill, and the only thing that repeats is a canned line for going up a sandy hill or grinding down a rail.
>>625408637>It's just so fucking safe, sterile, and boring.Maybe, but at least it wasn't delibrately designed to piss off the player.
>>625408954I'd rather be pissed off playing some challenging or weird shit than go through the motions of a sterile game.
>>625408407>Final boss sequence was still a lot of just standing around waiting for things to fill up. Normally that doesn't bother me, but it felt like a huge step backwards from XB2I can't believe you can say this when XB2's final boss fight LITERALLY involves just standing around while you wait for Malos to pilot his big mech back into range of your attacks. People overrate 2's ending so much it's crazy, the actual final boss fight has nothing on 3's visually or mechanically, and the Pyra/Mythra death fakeout that's played seriously and supposed to be all emotional but is undone not one minute later is ridiculous.The combat is the best in the series too, the lack of gacha and exploration-gating field skills dependent on that gacha is an objective improvement, and I could go on. Some areas could be better sure, like the environments and the overworld music overall. You can try to make XB3 seem like this massive disappointment, but it just feels more in line with what 1 was in terms of story and tone, though it does keep plenty of 2's battle mechanics. So now you know how some of those 1fags felt when 2 released and was very different from a lot of what they'd liked about 1. This is just what happens when a series experiments with itself instead of serving the same exact thing every time.
>>625407208Naruto became tall, he wasn't really a manlet though.
>>625382773voice acting also got the blacked treatment
>>625409917Actually, in Part 1, Naruto WAS a manlet. He was the second shortest character next to Gaara. It was only after the time-skip that he averaged out.
>>625409678Not that Anon, but I don't think 3 was bad, just majorly underwhelming. Like, it failed to meet expectations which isn't a fault against it, but then it ALSO failed to do basic things I'd expect from any other game.Overall I'd say it's a solid 7/10, and I'd recommend it to any JRPGhead, but compared to the rest of the series, it's the weakest entry next to X.
all 4 Xenoblade games are great
>>625411167All of the blackies in question there did a pretty good job, I don't really get the flame.I can't imagine a world where Riku and Manana had different voices.
Xenoblade Chronicles 3 is an objectively bad game liked by objectively bad people. If you're a decent human being then you fucking hate Xenoblade Chronicles 3. This is fact.
>>625411167only the nopon got blacked retard
>>625411167So did Rex and Nia's bloodline
>>625409678The discourse surrounding XB2 is ridiculous. You literally can't talk about it normally anywhere.Everywhere people are always hyper negative about it. Everywhere except /v/ that is, where it goes to the other far end and the people here put it on a pedestal mostly because of contrarianism.>>625411167They all did a superb job, specially the main 6.The only questionable one is Ghondor but I think that's more on the weird directing than the VA's talent.
>>625411167This is bait but Nopons aren't human and Sena got bleached it seems.Btw if you care about voice actor races you're on the same level as those retards who made the black guy on fucking Family Guy step down from the role for being white. By the same logic, no westerners can ever be voiced in anime without getting riced I guess.
>>625409678Just wanted you to be aware that I'm beyond happy that 3 flopped. Just so I can soak in the tears of you lefty faggots
>>625415114>Rex, Noah and Mio's great great great grandaughter bullied Shulk's adopted daughter's great great great great grandaughter into killing herselfWhat did Takahashi mean by this?
Who is heavier: Lanz or Sena?
>>625416142>"I just really like 2 as a game">Dumps pornEvery fucking time. 2 will never not be seen as low-effort wank bait, in no small part due to contributions of people like you.
>>625415267>The discourse surrounding XB2 is ridiculous. You literally can't talk about it normally anywhere.I wish you weren't right, it's so tiresome and boring. Every single thread, and it's poisoned 3 discussion as well. I'm not interested in engaging with fanart ERP or political ragebait.
>>625408954>>625408824FLORA HEALS AN ACHING SOUL
>>625416576And 3 failed because people like me refused to buy the censored slop
>>625408407>XB3 was too safe and low risk in its design. Battle system was boring, no chaining stuff together or anything. It's a simple algorithm.3's battle system has more going on in its battle system than 1 or 2. The only game with a comparable amount of activity and choices is X
>>625416668>Every single thread, and it's poisoned 3 discussion as wellI love this. I hoped when the game was initially revealed that you faggots wouldn't be able to talk about it on here, and turns out it came true.
>>625381665>Original Hero has Zettai Ryyouiki shorts:socks ratio>boy clothes are just pants>Original hero has skintight suit>boy clothes don't have buttsWhy are the only good boy costumes the Ethel suit and the Monica suit?
>>625377016It did. And I'm glad the game was such a success.
>>625417731>And I'm glad the game was such a success.lollmao

>>625409917Naruto should have ended after the Pain arc and Boruto should have never been made altogether.
God I want to rub this thing all over. Look how smooth and soft and shiny it is. It's so cute.
>>625416576Holy shit, I'm just posting images from my Xenoblade folder. They don't mean anything.I didn't even say why I liked 2, and you're already writing me off as a coomer. Fuck's sake.
It's a decent game, but easily the weakest Xeno game.
>>625418362Bro, do you realize how ridiculous it sounds to post this >>625416142 image and then act "holy shit" baffled when someone calls you a coomer. Like it's fine if you want to fuck Mythra's tits, just get some self-awareness when you post.
>>625418362>and you're already writing me off as a coomerYeah, because you provided more than ample evidence. And now you're just getting defensive about dropping porn on a blue board.
>>625418657>>625418975So what, if you post porn of 3, that means you only like it for porn?2 has a lot of porn. It's literally just a random image I attached to the post.
>>625419089Being unable to post fanart that isn't porn is mostly a 2fag issue.
>>625382518I am tired of you people on this board.Nudity is not necessary for sexuality you fucking childish negroid.
>>625419225This is exactly what I mean. You hate 2 and you hate people who like 2, you don't care why, so you don't even pretend to want to have a dialogue with us.We could be talking about so many other things, but you'd rather just shitpost about 2 and 2fags like some boogieman.
>>625396230I like 2 as much as 3 but people need to touch OTHER grass from Uraya and see how practically lifeless the other worlds are. Gormott is mildly boring outside the Torigoth area but it's being excused because it's your standard early level Ghibli Hill. Temperantia and Cliff of Morytha looks dead and uninteresting. At least the dead Colony north from Colony 9 has an interesting landmark. There's no reason to actually explore Temperantia aside from beating up superbosses and Blade quests.Erythia is better than both Leftheria and Eryth mainly because, instead of roaming around limited hallways and islet with telepads, you now have a boat to explore every island without actually needing to swim all over there.Mor Ardain is only interesting because of its dungeons. The deserts in XB3 is more interesting mainly because it has actual verticality.XB2's Final dungeon aesthetics is better than XB3's final dungeon mainly because , but I got the feeling that, if people made the whole Origin as close to BOTH Mechonis+Entia Tech AND Tora+Mor Ardain+Urayan Tech, it would've resonated better. As it stands, making it an alien tech without any interesting landmarks made Origin a boring hallway
>>625377016>Oh yeah, that happened.FFXV having a true ending novel
>>625419701Bro, you posted porn. Fucking own up to it, and stop trying to paint yourself as some kind of martyr.

>>625419778>Erythia is better than both Leftheria and Eryth mainly because, instead of roaming around limited hallways and islet with telepads, you now have a boat to explore every island without actually needing to swim all over there.Completing the map is pure ass though.

>>625420310No one played your faggy game, those lines mean nothing to anyone.
>>625420545why are you in this thread then fag?
>>625377016I didn't even finish the game, got bored like half way through. I still hope I'll actually feel up to finishing it at some point.
>>625420939To make you seethe
>XC2 threads filled years later with screaming trannies insisting no one would ever remember the game fondly>XC3 threads filled months later with screaming trannies insisting the game was actually goodThe only tragedy is that we have no idea if Nintendo is capable of course correcting anymore after trannies so blatantly ruined a great franchise.
>>625409678>The combat is the best in the series too,Factually incorrect. It's XB2's fault that the actual battle can be beaten without actually doing whatever the preceding tutorial (poorly) teaches you, but when you actuallyThe most egregious mechanics change was separating time-based arts and AA-basaed arts. XB2 used to be They also forgot to buff arts auto-cancel so it only benefits Agnian classes>>625420336It's also ass to do in Eryth because there are a few amount islands that you can only access by swimming. Leftheria mitigated this by cutting the landmarks to only places where you can walk on. Erythia cut this by introducing the boat
>>625420103I'm not trying to be a fucking martyr holy shit.I'm saying posting porn doesn't delegitimize my opinion on Xenoblade. I've got hundreds of hours in the game, merch, I've played them all to some extent. The game series has porn. I posted porn. Just to get eyes on my post. That's all. It's truly and utterly "not that deep".
>>625422007In XC1, it was easier because you could see the locations in the map, on XC3 you only see the landmarks meaning that even if you get all the landmarks you won't unlock the map because you may be missing a location and good luck finding which one you're missing.
>>625422278You're talking to a tranny who's terrified of the female form lmao.
>>625377016Yeah it was great, even if it's my least favorite Xenoblade.
>>625422278>I posted porn. Just to get eyes on my post.Yes, and that is a big fucking reason why discussing these games has become a goddamn joke. We literally could not discuss 3 on release because of horny 2 fags circlejerking over "Based Rex" and dumping their smut folders.
>>625380590M's ass is better.
>>625416860God on one hand I hated having to reconfigure my party constantly to deal with that shit but on the other being able to get a ton of items immediately was really nice. That one quest on Fiona’s colony that needed a bunch of grapefruits(?) fucking killed me.
>>625422007ADHD is a trip sometimes.XB2 has good mechanics and the superbosses and higher difficulties expects that you understand the mechanics, which are entertaining as long as you actually pay attention to both your gauge and your party buildsXB2 introduced pouch items. On paper, it's supposed to be just passive buffs that helps in combat, like what XB3 properly did in their Cooking part of the gameplay. On practice, using certain pouch items allows you to combine AA-charged arts and Time-charged arts from XB1 so it's actually easier for you to spam arts in addition to the other mechanics XB2 already introduced.XB3 separated this for plot reasons but because one of the key mechanics already introduced in XB2 only benefits Agnian classes, a lot of Keves classes gets shafted with only three compensation that benefits only a few class, neither of which actually fixes the current problem Kevesi classes have:- inherent passive skills can justify the use of said class- Kevesi classes still have access to any Agnian-inherited arts- Agnian classes HAVE to us Kevesi-inherited arts

>>625422278Cute cat.Anyway, I know what you mean, but there are just so many shitposters infesting these threads compared to people with level-headed opinions that it's often hard to tell who's being genuine. With the current state of affairs, someone who posts Aegis porn in particular here is more often than not someone who doesn't really care about the games at any level beyond providing masturbatory material or offering opportunities to act as a ragebaiting sperg. If that's really not the case with you, then that's good. Xenoblade girls are hot after all. But just look at this thread, it's a mess. The series has just attracted too many dedicated falseflag schizos.
