it's so bizarre to me that you can tell exactly how far they got in that Master Dungeon or whatever. there were like 3 enemies from other games but then they scribbled over them in purple so you could barely tell who they were
then they made it so punishingly difficult that you couldnt enjoy it because you knew if you fucked up once you lost your chance

Maybe half as big as Xenoblade 2? Which would be fucking nuts considering how much content that would mean.

Sakurai said not to expect many new characters, but if we get DLC then Rex is going to be pretty likely.

that's both sensible (because there are so many) and bizarre (since that's half the point)
I think not everyone should have to come back every time, and they should swap out different representatives of a given series

That's literally the point of a season pass. It's understood you are getting -everything- that's going to come out.

>>217812809
seems like the drivers don't use their blades' weapons. you switch between driver and blades now
>>
>>217812809
All the human characters can use multiple weapons, but I think the Blades only have their primary. You can see it in the trailer with Lora; she uses a whip in one scene, and in the next she's using her fists.
>>
>>217812415
Yes, with my brother who I played the first three gens with side-by-side at launch. He's loving this, I'm not really feeling it.
The good thing about it being on Switch is that only one of us need to purchase it, so I'm probably going to play it whether I want it or not.

>>217813037
It's neat. And kind of weird that they have some kind of physical weapon instead of just using their blade's. Like why don't people do that 500 years later? Ahkos would have been in big trouble then.
>>
I guess we can control our blades on the dot?
>>
>>217813575
iirc it's because using the blade's weapon as a driver is supposed to be way stronger/more efficient then doing that.
>>
>>217813575
According to some of the lore released before the base game came out, combat used to be more like what the DLC is like until a certain Driver and Blade found out that by using the Blades weapon, they could increase the amount of power of their Arts and give enhanced strength and endurance. Plus, when Arts are used, ether is refined and purified, allowing for the use of Specials.

Addam was a handsome lad. I guess he's a good indicator of what adult Rex will look like.

Nope, we take the Chapter 5 cutscene as canon, he had it even back then. Maybe he uses it as intimidation in battle?

dammit I was gonna buy it. i've been wanting console pokemon since pokemon came out. i was like "put this shit on the n64" and we got Stadium instead.
>>
>>217814660
Jin was wearing the mask when he showed up in the flashback with Addam and Lora sparring, so I guess he just wears it when he feels like.
He also wears it when in battle when he's with Rex in Chapter 8, but not during cutscenes.

You're at a good level, it's just that Akhos and Malos are a fucking wall. If you're not using dessert pouch items, make sure you do that so your Arts recharge faster. Give your Pouch Expansion Kit to Rex (press X on the Pouch menu) and also give him an instrument to increase Special recharge. Get an Earth combo on Akhos ASAP to stop Blade Shackle. Focus on Akhos as much as you can since he has less HP.
It's a rough fight, so good luck. I've beaten them both at lvl 22 before, so it's absolutely possible for you to win.

The only story fights I had problems with was Mikhal and Patroka, which was more the AI standing in the fucking fire and Phantasm (and that was only because it wasn't very indicative of what you're supposed to do with constantly respawning enemies and you're kneecapped on damage) but I never used Pouch Items or bonus XP
I don't know how you guys have trouble.

So apparently, the expansion will be released on 9/14, but they are also going to sell "Golden Ira" as a stand alone game on 9/21 (in Japan, at the very least).
It is intended for those who didn't play xenoblade 2 yet and want to try this before the actual game. Note that if you buy that version, you get a code for the rest of the DLC in case they buy the actual game later on.

Just to clarify that news:
The "box" listed in the JP website is not for the season pass. It is actually a package for the Golden Ira stuff alone with a code for XB2 DLC.

Since it has a cartridge for this, it is very likely more expansive than the actual season pass.

On the flip side, the western news only mention a box, so it is probably just a fancy box for the DLC code.
>>

>>217820035
>It is actually a package for the Golden Ira stuff alone
Wait, am I reading this wrong or are you saying this will be a some kind of standalone DLC
>>
>>217820286
For the JP release, yeah.
The production notes and the website specifically state that the "Golden Ira" box edition is a package for those who didn't play XB2 yet and want to play that first before XB2. It still has a DLC code to make up for the rest of the season pass in case they want to buy the actual game afterwards. That's why it is released a week after the season pass too.

The western version isn't the same: it is just a box for a code, and cannot be played without the actual game.
They probably did a "physical release" so westerners can get the box.
>>
Someone should make an alternative boxart featuring both campaigns.
>>
>>217820582
Why would they not release it as a standalone in the west though? Makes very little sense
>>
>>217820773
it's kind of a dumb idea, so why do the same dumb idea?
>>
>>217820773
I think NoA and NoE don't want to confuse people like "it is a new game!" and to be honest, I don't remember any western release where a DLC is actually playable without the original game.

That's pretty much a niche move from NoJ. They are always overkill when it comes to customized choice. For instance, you can pre-order LE games without the game cart for a lower price, which is quite handy if you want digital games but with the goods.

Yeah you are right, the western version is actually the same as the JP ver.

I'm not sure why they bothered doing that, unless it is really that long to warrant another game card.

So if the west also gets a standalone cartridge, will I be able to buy the physical version from the cartridge and just give the DLC code to someone else, because I already bought the season pass?
>>
>>217822442
Yes. The problem is that person won't have the story dlc, unless 1) they buy a complete season pass 2) nintendo sell the story dlc as a stand alone on the eshop too.

If anything, I don't think anyone would bother buying the season pass redux unless they really don't care about the story.

I bought XC2 """""""""new"""""""""" from EBGames today. They reached in a cabinet, grabbed a cartridge, put it in an empty XC2 case, and they put a fucking sticker on the plastic of the case.
I know I should have said something, but I just wanted to go home and play.

Is there any way to take this sticker off without damaging the case? Autism, I know, but this seems really anti-consumer. For all I know, someone played this for 200 hours and traded it in for $20, only to be resold for $90. But most mostly, I just want this fucking sticker off.

Mythra is not Pyra in any way other than that they are both the Aegis. Think of it as Mythra giving birth to her own twin but as an adult. Their past is the same but their future is different.

It's really not that hard to understand.

Dataminers speculated that the battle system would be like the first Xenoblade since playable characters had seven Arts each instead of four. Also, if you look in the trailer, Mor Ardain's emperor is called Hugo like the datamine suggested and he has Brighid and Aegaeon. You can briefly see Fan's/Haze's icon beneath Jin when he's a playable character in a battle and she's Wind like the datamine suggested.

Here's your playable Minoth/Cole, by the way. The datamine did say he'd have dual weapons, and they seem to be his daggers, one of which he gave to Rex in the story to present to Amalthus. He's got the scar in the same place as well.

Was anyone else disappointed that Rex didn't do that thing Vandham taught him before he died?

I was expecting him to have to impale himself with his weapon to channel a shiton of ether to save Pyra/Mythra.

but then he would die
>>
>>217845907
not really
>>
>>217846243
>implying that's not a good thing

Besides he could've easily been saved from death by the power of the Aegis or something. Vandham was killed by Malos kicking his weapon into his guts not from the impaling itself.
>>
>>217846583
>Besides he could've easily been saved from death by the power of the Aegis or something
Unless Mythra wakes up, Pyra would be stuck with ether channeling instead of conduit channeling, which means that Pyra could potentially not be able to save Rex with Obrona ether disruption. If anything, she would take as much damage as Rex if he does that stupid shit.
>>
>>217846873
No I meant like Rex could have done it at the end of the game.

>>217847149

Why did they waste a whole direct on Smash? Why did they feel the need to go though almost every character?
>>
>>217847792
Obrona has nothing to do with anything, she is long dead.

I meant Rex should've sacrificed himself to save Pyra/Mythra towards the end of the game in the same way Vandham sacrificed himself to save everyone i.e. by impaling himself. It just seems pointless how Vandham did that and it never got referenced ever again.

Vandham did it to bypass Obrona's hax and fight against Malos and Akhos. Wen he was fighting Aion he had Pneuma's hax wich is more than enough. There is no real reason for impaling himself at that point. Maybe in the Jin fight where Pyra gets kidnapped, but they break the sword anyway

Vandham wanted Rex to live so he could take Pyra to Elysium. If sacrificing himself was the only way she could get there I'm sure he wouldn't disapprove. Besides I doubt Vandham would've bothered mentioning it to him directly if he didn't think there was a possibility that Rex would need to use it at some point.
>>
>>217850161
not tonight, if it's going to happen it'll happen tomorrow.

>>217849910
They could have worked it into the scene in Chapter 7. Would have been a nice call back since Nia has a flash back about Vandham

>>217849910
He didn't have to die, he could just been badly injured. Nia could've healed him with the power of the friendzone.

>>217851296
They did reference it. The devs just chose not to shoehorn in yet another flashback when anyone who wasn't dumb could have figured out what Nia meant when she said people died because of her.

Since i finished the game,might as well use overdrive protocols on some characters. Rex does have a couple, but not rare like Electra and Godfrey. Though he does have Praxis which is recommended.

Rex has a couple
(Electra,Praxis,Dahlia)

Nia has mostly healers and attackers (Gorg,Kora,Vess,Boreas,Sheba,Kasandra,Agate,and Ursula.)

Morag mix tank and agility (Finch,Floras,Dagas,Azami,Newt,Zenobia,Theory,and Aegaeon)

Zeke is tank basically or attacker
(Perceval,Nim,Perun,Wulfric,Herald)

I don't have Adenine,Vale, Kosmos,and Telos.

As for new game plus;
Rex with Sever and Obrona
Nia with Akhos
Morag with Mikhail and Cressidus
Zeke with Patroka and Perdido

Recommend changes?

>>217852329
Zenobia goes to Zeke. Nia should have Obrona. Get the rest on Zeke because they're all for him and Rex.

I think you can use poppi buster right from the get go, if not you will once you unlock poppi mark 1 but I'm pretty sure it's from the get go.

>>217857865
just rush through the game with whatever you have on rex until the chapter where he joins, it's not worth wasting overdrives. you literally don't need that much firepower in NG+
>>
Is there a place where I can read about optimal/cool builds with various blade teams?

I get the game isn't too hard, but I like optimization and i'd like to be ready for challenge mode if it actually turns out to BE a challenge.

Abusing damage % up from the chain attacks will be key, basically. after that you just have to switch aux cores and accessories as needed, outdoor, challenger items, etc. Herald and Zenobia will be top tier as always.

For the Torna Blades, the only must move on there is Obrona to Nia since she’s based on Twin Rings.

Also, if you’re starting NG+, keep Rex’s Blades on him until you recruit the others. You can buy overdrives in Tantal by the way.

No, I meant they could do the stab yourself thing as that got totally forgotten. The scene works as it, it would have just been a good moment to reincorporate it and would have been the only time it could have worked without Rex dying.

So basically Malos went gay for Jin during the Aegis War and picked him up on the rebound after his former Driver had Jin's waifu killed?

Ice fucking cold

>>217867234
Did Malos even recognize Jin in Mor Ardain? It didn't really seem like it.
>>
>>217867695
Jin didn't have any cake so he didn't have any reason to be super friendly I guess.
>>
>>217867695
He probably recognized Jin. He figured out it wasn't some random bum immediately and apparently worked out that they had similar status (both independent blades).

so how many plotholes can we expect the Torna DLC to add? "why didn't brighid just read that part in her journal and tell rex" and so on

>>217868634
Might have just forgot to write it down. She also does say in the game that she doesn't know if she can actually trust what she's written. It's why she wants to talk with Jin. So far it looks like it's actually going to clear up a fuck ton of stuff. From the book that the Tantal King had, Amalthus' invasion.

Did you even play the game? The Titans merge with the land that was already there, thereby fixing their space and arable land problem.

Probably didn't recognize him initially given how he was cloaked, but he saw the look in his eyes. The look of someone who has no reason to live and yet cannot die. The look of someone who lost everything he loved along and all faith he once had. Another drifting soul facing a meaningless eternity because of a few words. Jin was emotionally compromised at that point, but there would never be any way to fix that. Malos may have taken advantage of it, but it wasn't out of malice, but kinship. It was Jin that also gave Malos a reason to destroy outside of the influence of Amalthus. Malos was no longer destroying because of his Driver's base hatred for the world, but because he himself had a reason.

So one interesting thing from the trailer that wasn't in the datamine was that all the human Drivers have elements as well. It never shows Hugo being used as the front Driver, but I'm pretty sure we know his element based on everyone else.

Laura - Fire
Jin - Ice
Haze - Wind
Addam - Electric
Mythra - Light
Minoth - Dark
Hugo - ???
Brighid - Fire
Aegaeon - Water

The only element we don't have is Earth, so I think it's safe to say that's Hugo's element.

Also, I've been missing from these generals for like three weeks, shortly after the most recent batch of DLC quests dropped. Anything interesting happen since? I can see that the datamine was updated for readability.

Confession time, I only got 80 hours out of XBC2, didn't touch the super bosses and had ass loads of unfinished side quests and missing blades. I had a blast with the game but without the thrust of the main story I didn't feel much of a drive to keep playing.

>>217873184
what?

>>217873663
I got about three times as many hours out of X despite 2 feeling like a much more refined and complete game experience.

oh yeah plus the one he busted out when there was sand blowing around. I loved that scene.
>>
>>217874304
X is really conductive to fucking around because even the basic movement is fun, combined with mountainclimbing/sneaking to get to areas 'earlier' than you should.

Also when it asks you to gather 5 bear asses, it's because a character needs to make a hat out of them or something. That shit's great.
>>
>>217874779
It very well might have. My numbers were stupidly high at points, but it definitely didn't do that EVERY time I went to sleep mode.
>>
>>217874870
yeah the three xenoblades do such different things with fetch quests
1 innovatively made it so you rarely had to actually find the NPC again, making it not so bad having tons and tons of quests and NPCs that move around so you'd never find them again
X let you choose the ones to grab at a terminal, so you could wait til you were quite aware of where to grab the shit, and you could even craft some of the bear asses
and then 2 just made very few quests period

what was that gobblebonk about 'white and red swords' anyway? the swords are red and gold. their blades are orange and yellow. And what the hell about the third could be said to be 'like diamond' ?
>>
>>217875854
>and then 2 just made very few quests period
This explains why I feel like I'm at a lower level I should, but don't the mere missions make up the bulk of the "side quests?"

Yeah, the proportion is about the same. xenoblade 2 just seems shorter overall, even if that's an illusion somewhat

I really, Really, REALLY hope they don't put the data of Torna the Golden Country in the game ahead of release. I really don't want data miners spoiling it. Look at how they killed off the discussion of the current DLC.

>>217878178

>>217878553
It ruins the wonder, being able to discover stuff yourself or as a group, and most importantly, destroys any chance of having fun speculating on what happens or what we get.

Kinda like how we're talking about how the combat system for it works or what areas we will be able to visit in it based on the trailer. A Data miner would just drop all the information and ruin the fun of that.
It's a big picture thing to keep this general alive.

>>217873663
That's why I did everything I could before the final boss. A New Game+ playthrough should be worthwhile once all the new content comes out though.

>>217879331

Datamining kept the discussion alive far longer than would have been possible otherwise. All the statistics and concrete numbers we've gotten from the datamine have also been extremely useful. Lots of fascinating stuff in there that we'd never see otherwise.

>Datamining kept the discussion alive far longer than would have been possible otherwise
Bullshit it does, it makes it interesting for a few days, then everyone loses interest. What was a more fun experience? Some dataminer dumping all the characters stats, or seeing someone grind up Vandahm to level 99 in chapter 3 in order to find them out? You're a damn fool if you say the former.

>>217879437

>What was a more fun experience? Some dataminer dumping all the characters stats, or seeing someone grind up Vandahm to level 99 in chapter 3 in order to find them out? You're a damn fool if you say the former.
I'm actually at a loss for words at how retarded that is.

And Vandham's level 99 stats were in the Japanese guidebook, which is taken straight from a v1.1.1 datamine (or rather the source material that Monolith Soft possesses). That guidebook was never announced for any sort of localization, but it pales in comparison to the information that we got from the datamine. It was Monolith Soft's mistake for including future update information in contemporary updates.

I'm glad we know how the gacha system works, what each level IV Special's effect is, how the damage is calculated, and values for various aspects that go completely unmentioned otherwise. Stability is a game mechanic in this but nothing in the game says so, yet all weapons and Core Chips have a stability value.

>>217884640
Isn't the point of using the Japanese names in a localized game being accurate to the source material though? Like I've seen "Vasara", "Vajra", and "Vajara" all used for Perceval from various official sources, but wouldn't it just be less of a headache to use ヴァサラ? I mean this doesn't seem like much of an issue for me since I've had a Japanese IME installed for years and have gotten used to it and can at least read kana, but that's still pretty basic and I think that if you have a desire to go against the localization, you might as well be at that level.

>Isn't the point of using the Japanese names in a localized game being accurate to the source material though?
yeah but if you can't fucking read it, then it's not very useful
besides, 80% of the time THEY're only using katakana because they can't read roman letters.
in this case, it is vasara.. but if it was vajra, then you'd say that, no matter how weirdly that would come out in direct romaji.
the funny thing is what you're sort of suggesting is the reason so many people are ignorinnocently saying 'Zanza' not realizing it's the greek word Xanthe meaning blonde (and before you ask, I'm not suggesting we write it Ξανθή either)
it does remind me of that zanza guy in rurouni kenshin though so it gets points there I guess?
>>
>>217884985
>>217885325
also you can't always go by official sources when clearly they're pretty clumsy with roman letters themselves. Pokémon is a fine example of this. the "official" romanizations are nonsense half the time. You have to go by what they clearly intended, and also by the romanization system you approve of for the words that comprise the name. The rest is just buttered pants.
And yeah once in a while there is no good solution, like Iwaaku. the -k part is supposed to be from 'snake' but..you can't write it Iwake.
Or like that guy Brd in Zelda, everyone here knows as Groose. It's written the same as 'bird' but without the extension, so... Brd? I'm not gonna say 'Bado'. I guess Burd would do. sometimes DBZ has issues like this too. Like good ol' Gurd. But then I'll admit I was saying Freezer for ages, unaware that, no, the A at the end isn't held.. so it's Freeza.
>>
>>217885325
It is Vasara in a literal romanization, but ヴァサラ literally refers to the term Vajra, and it is a term that's used throughout Xeno games. It's just how it's pronounced in Japanese. For the most part (and I mean MOST), the Japanese staff does not care about the romanizations used. Rex would be an exception because it needs to have X. But ホムラ is gonna be thought of as ホムラ and not Homura.
>>
>>217885583
>That's just how it's pronounced in Japanese
wouldn't be the first time they just flat-out say a foreign word wrong (or sometimes differently, like if it met them from a different direction) but it's certainly not how you'd romanize vajra.
>The staff doesn't care about the romanizations used
which is the reason I said most of what I said in that post about how you have to just do it right, not go by any particular official source.
Hell if you're so insistent, why not write her name as a kanji? the homura kanji is fucking beautiful isn't it?
>>
>>217885867
You don't romanize it that way because it's not romanizing the word, it's using the correct Sanskrit word instead of the shitty Japanese approximation.
>>
>>217884769
Who cares about lessons lol
>>
>>217886246
yeah fair enough, in that situation perhaps I should say Vajra then.
>>
>>217885867
Because kanji gives sounds meaning when kana just gives sound. You may be able to determine the meaning of those sounds given context, but sometimes it's left intentionally vague.
シン = Shin (according to the Japanese website), Sin (according to the datamine), and Jin (according to the localization). シン/しん has so many potential meanings that it would be unfair to say his name as 真, 心, 神, 新, or whatever else because it's up to interpretation.
ワダツミ (Aegaeon) being used over 綿津見 or 海神 is a way of saying that it's a name from the old world that has no known meaning in the new world, simply being sound. In this regard, it's much like when Malos asked Klaus what Logos meant, and Klaus basically said it didn't matter because it was a name they plastered onto him, thus better representing their own hubris rather than "word of God/logic".

I'm not going to say that the world of Xenoblade 2 is speaking English or Japanese. They have their own alphabet which corresponds to the Latin alphabet, but there's a bunch of lines and terms that only work in Japanese. I think it's safe to say that they have their own language which evolved over time and that they have terms like ワダツミ, ヴァサラ, and ホムラ that exist as sounds without known meaning because they were from the old world. In the game's world, they would be represented not in Japanese, but in the actual script made for the game, but for completion's sake, it's easier to refer to the characters by their localized names or by their unaltered name from the Japanese game.

>>217887056
Except they are almost certainly speaking English with a different writing system. The blades were whipped up by a guy who was most likely speaking English and would have been the source of the specific form language took in evolving life since they already had it.
>>
>>217887534
It's been at the very least thousands of years. Even if they started out speaking English, whatever they're speaking now would most likely be completely different.
>>
>>217887056
I'm almost with you, sort of, (you seem to be missing some of my point), but then
>for completion's sake, it's easier to refer to the characters by their localized names or by their unaltered name from the Japanese game.
completion's sake???
>>
>>217887685
Ordinarily I would agree that the passage of time means whatever language they use would be unrecognisable, but the blades screw that up by having innate language programming that would preserve it over much longer periods. It could be there's been dialect shift that the blades account for in some way, but at most it would be some kind of fantasy future English they could translate. A lot of proper nouns in European languages are references to older speech, so having those stick around wouldn't be weird.
>>
>>217887534
>>217887685
eh, the blades keep it in check. it's probably altered english but peppered with nihongo from all the software running the system
>>
It's not english, they need adenine to translate shit.
Also iirc blades came after humans so they'd speak the human language.
>>
What is left to announce for the season pass ? New blades ? Quests ? Something bigger ?
>>
>>217890432
It's all been announced/datamined already
Shulk and Fiora blades as well as the light katana and fire bitball blade and the challenge mode must still be announced though.
Maybe today at a random treehouse stream, as apparently the release date for the challenge mode is listed for today in the datamine
>>
>>217889818
It could be a language phonetically identical to English but with a completely different written language.
>>
>>217889818
Blades are older than all life on the planet though. By definition, since everything evolved from them and Klaus programmed them with basic personality and language data first.

It's still the same technology though. Core crystals were around before the experiment. Klaus just converted them into an artificial evolution system.

It would be very strange if they independently evolved their own sentience with their crazy lifespans.

Could you imagine Electra with Block Rate V and Ultimate Shield, maybe even an Emergency Guard as well.

I honestly don't understand the reason why some blades only have 1 or 2 aux core slots.

Take her and you can put one attacker + two tanks, or two attackers + one tank. You don't need a healer when you have that blade. You should use Rex (Mythra, "her"), Zeke (Pandoria, Herald) and Tora

I'm at a loss for words for how lazy you are because of your autism.
If you weren't also a newfag, you'd know the guy did the grinding to find the stats before the guide was released. Because that was part of what made things fun or interesting, the experimentation to try and find out what does what and how. Instead, we have fags like you blabbing out and ruining that like a guy in the theater who shouts out the ending.

The fact you put datamining on a pedestal makes me think you're one of their enablers or one of the fags doing it in a vain attempt to justify your attention whoring.

Hard and Ultimate mode are going to nerf incoming healing and without the proper core chips for crit, it will be much more difficult to make it worth it. I think the next best crit chip is like tier 8. Some challenges also don't let us use Tora.

NO ONE FUCKING DATAMINED THE COSTUMES?!
>>
>>217921345
Probably because they weren't in the datamined build (lastest update out).
>>
I'm stuck on the malos and jin fight, any good way to level up or tactic to deal with them? Losing Pyra gimped my composition over entirely
>>
>>217920570
I hope Aeageon gets one that turns him into a not-common blade
>>
>>217921345
We knew there were new aux cores, but the fact that they had costumes attached to them never occurred to anyone. It was quickly brushed over for the other stuff and people considered the level 6 aux cores to be more important
>>
Does the challenge mode come with hard mode too?
>>
>>217921660
Focus on Jin instead of Malos, his health is lower because he relies on evasion. How difficult the fight is depends entirely on your party setup.

If you are using Blade Nia and leveled up her affinity chart, then it isn't too bad. Blowdown is the murderer in this fight and affinity down, so using things that protect against that are the key to winning. If you don't, then your art recharge rate suffers and incoming damage becomes too much. So use pouch items that protect against the drain from affinity down. Monado Eater and Skyward Slash are the ones to watch out for.

What do you think candystripe nia will look like?

2.8's trailer made Sora saving Aqua as like a theme, so she should get a good end. If any "negative" twist happens, maybe it happens to Riku, Lea, Roxas, Ventus, or Terra.
>>
>>217921806
They didn't mention it, but it should. It's a big part of the arena, as I think I remember certain challenges only giving the top rewards in Hard.

>>217922065
I'm betting on Nurse outfit. Flat out. It fits her perfectly

What other costumes should he get?
>>
I heard they showed Shulk's level 4, webm somebody?
>>
>shulk dlc super soon
>but if i wait for september i get a cool cartridge
why would they make a physical version and then immediately make something that makes it useless. I dunno what to do
>>
>>217923289
Yeah, it really sucks. I already bought the season pass and it sucks that if I want the box and cartridge I have to buy it again and can't even give the code away to someone...
>>
>>217923476
I just realized that around that time the market may be flooded with cheap expansion codes.
Maybe $15 each, I might snatch one then.
>>
So is the challenge mode like FF12 trial mode?
>>
if i buy the season pass how should i distribute the high drop rate dlc blades? should i just roll them all on morag?

Not sure if i should stay away from here to avoid costume spoilers that WILL be datamined by Friday or see spoilers to see which i like and are worth the noponstones

was not expecting him to look identical. figured he'd get the kos-mos and t-elos treatment. Especially since his default outfit a shit
>>217914716
VERY was not expecting her to still be in meat mode.
>>
>>217926402
Nia I love your outfit...............
>>
>>217916886
it's easier if you stop saying C since that isnt in the actual title

Paper Mario 2 and 1 were harder than 3.
>>
>>217918005
what's most interesting to me is when you had that disguise on it disappeared for battle, so now I guess it won't
>>
>>217919724
i'm scared, guys. what if I can't do it? I'm not good at hard games.

they had harder hard moments but not really. you could get your ass handed to you in 3 if you just weren't paying attention and quick with your actions.
>>

if you seriously bought that for her after hearing the WOW I WISH IT COULD BE THIS PEACEFUL FOREVER line I don't know what to tell you

Rex after Chapter 7 looks pretty cool.

>>217917837
He's an enemy in the final Challenge Mode mission. He's level 70. Tatsu is also in the mission at level 56 and he summons a giant potato missile. You're forced to play as Tora for the title of Heropon, and your level is set to 60 at max. The final enemy is level 99.
