Didn't Breath of the Wild do that? At least you can trust Nintendo to eventually reveal the details of their DLC packs which are guaranteed to be released and it's up to you if it's worth it.

Usually season passes are just buying whatever the developers feel like making regardless of quality or how much DLC they actually make.

zelda botw had a season pass and it was announced before the release of the game. everyone went hysterical because they thought Nintendo was gonna release an incomplete game. then when it turns out it's actually the full game, everyone goes "oh i see. it's still a shit game anyway"

This is assuming we get one rare blade for every Element/Weapon combo. I hope we do though, it'll be amazing.

I'm also happy I won't have to feel bad about not using non-Rare blades I collect...given that you end up building a mercenary company out of them and send them on missions.

>This may technically be a sequel, but don't expect obvious nods to the first game. "It's completely different in terms of place, time, and space," Takahashi says. "Obviously I can't divulge all the details, butif you play the game, I think you'll get why this is called Xenoblade Chronicles 2."

>This approach doesn't count out references to Takahashi's previous work on Xenogears or Xenosaga."There's a lot that I can't talk about yet [that] hasn't been revealed, but it will be hopefully soon," Takahashi teases. "I think there's content in there where longtime fans of the series will have a pleasant surprise."

Main weapon class for each character doesn't have rare blades. They are their own thing so far, and don't seem to be usable between other party members. Dual Swords is the main weapon of Morag. There could be up to 6 more weapon types though going by the blank slots here. Not really sure why Rex doesn't have the katana icon here but does have the scythe/sickle. He's been shown using katanas, and also has Vandham's Roc which seems to be the only exception to the main blade rule.

Yeah, that's really weird. Is he just holding Roc for Vandham until or something?

It looks great and it's the game that I bought a Switch for, but at the same time I'm terrified that it's going to flop and/ or review poorly. I think it's too niche for casuals, many will complain about the characters never shutting up during combat etc.

You shouldn't care about others mate, just enjoy the game. He will definitely outsell Monado and X anyway.
I think the game will have aroune 85 meta, mainly because of the characters design, the anime feel... but that's not important. Nintendo need more games like this anyway.
>>
>>396103552
What does that have to do with anything?
X was bad too, so if anything that's worse. Working on a project so lifeless while your unreleased game is a pile of shit.
All you're saying is that their new IP is likely doomed, although not necessary. Maybe amongst all the outside hiring they'll accidently find somebody who knows how to design games.

It'd be even better if Xenoblade 2 is the kind of game that can be played in short bursts and you still feel like you're accomplishing something.

Bros, let me just say this. This game has been a hype rollercoaster for me. After the initial reveal, I was ecstatic. Don't give a fuck about anime artstyle or whatever so the idea of Xenoblade 2 was enough for me.

Then after E3 and the gamescom/milan presentations, I started going down. Everyone was negative and I kind of drifted along with them. The E3 trailer was pretty weak especially.

But now after that, I can't fucking hold it in any longer. I seriously think this is the most hyped I've been for a game since Smash Brothers Brawl, and I never thought that would happen. I fucking LOVED X and I picked it up on a whim so I never got to get hyped over it, then I picked up XC and LOVED it even more.

And now XC2. I AM SO FUCKING READY FOR THIS GOD DAMN GAME. AND I DON'T WANT TO GET SPOILED. SO BYE. I'LL DISCUSS THE GAME WITH YOU ALL AFTER I'VE FINISHED.

Also remember

The trailer really wasn't great. They showed off barely anything of the amazing world Monolith are known for, the majority was cliched as fuck lines pulled out of context, and past the first interesting Pyra/Rex scene it's a bunch of literally whos swinging swords at each other. We barely even knew who Rex was.

0.9m according to:
http://www.vgchartz.com/game/71409/xenoblade-chronicles-x/

I think it sold poorly due to localization controversy and lack of dual audio. Especially considering XC did have dual audio and wasn't censored at all, it seemed like a huge step backwards.

First off, vgchartz is unreliable. Second, it sold in the same ballpark as the Wii release of the first game, which is to say, not too much but decently. Third, the real reason why they didn't sell that well is lack of advertisement and being released on the Wii when nobody cared about it anymore and on the Wii U which was always dead in the water and especially so by the end of 2015 respectively.

The one in that webm is Hana JS, high-school Poppi. The base form which we know as Alpha is elementary-school Poppi, so there has to be a Hana JC (middle-school Poppi) in-between and a Hana JD (university Poppi) after JS, the latter of which could be similar to what you're imagining.

>“Off the bat, we wanted to have a different type of gameplay experience with Poppi, so we decided to put in a minigame,” says executive director Tetsuya Takahashi. “The concept is kind of taken from ’70s arcade games – that's the kind of vibe and atmosphere we wanted to create.” Takahashi hinted that it’s in your best interest to spend the time to level up Poppi.
Boss battles where you're forced to use Poppi confirmed.

Xenogears and the first two Saga episodes bombed but Monolith still kept making games. Blade and Blade X still sold well enough, and Monolith is even planning another game after 2. This series isn't a AAA series that needs millions of sales to profit, and censorship and dual audio hardly ever dented sales of these games

I think that might be some sort of temporary thing until Vandham joins your party, with Roc being separated from him and joining your Blade line-up before then. It seems like he joins up with Rex and the gang relatively early on (judging by them being level 29 in one screen with him), and I can't imagine them killing off Vandham or putting him out of commission that early with how much focus they're putting on him.

>Katana
>Tank
This tickles my autism

>>396115139
oh, I was going by XCX making the raygun class a pure support
>>
>>396115214
Yes.

>>396115214
Not that's something completely different. The one you're thinking about is Chuunibyou. The one he's talking about is Inou Battle.

Because Square Enix make for obvious villains in a Monolith RPG

Damn youre on to something

not that it matters to me, Im a catgirl kind of guy

>>396115346
Oh, I got it wrong. Still, chuuni girl in both.

Katana has been a tank weapon in every game.
>>
>>396115082
It's the best way to play if you can't emulate and it's a great game.

I heard about the patch, I've been a little wary of the quality though. Even if it's 99% accurate I really want 100%. I'll give it some thought though.

Is the framerate as janky as the direct made it look? Or was that just bad streaming?
>>
how do you feel about Pyra and Mythra being one entity?
>>
>>396115308
When Zeke uses katanas he has an attack art that either evades attacks during it or raises evasion stat, not quite sure. But its similar to Dunban's tanking style.

Makes my dick hard

>both of Morag's VAs are women, with her Japanese VA often doing manly-sounding women
>Japanese VA for Roc is a man who's voiced characters like Turtle from DBZ and Onigumo from One Piece, and his English VA sounds like Raphael from the new TMNT cartoon
Whatever you say.

>Blaze to Light
It was there from the fucking start.

Is there a comfy thread up or do we need to make one?
>>
>>396116167
I think we need to make one
>>
>>396116167
Does it have to be comfy?
>>
>>396116348
I think there have been plenty of bait threads already today.

>>396108656
This game is just really rubbing me the right way
This sort of huge number of side companions with moderate depth is the sort of thing I love
Even just mechanically, I love the affinity unlock trees
