Are you playing this on emulation or a Switch?Xenoblade 2
I've played this up to where I first beat up Morag (rain is Brighid's mortal weakness, good to know, she should probably carry an umbrella around), combat is confusing, game's slow to start, but none of that bothers me too much and I'm willing to invest in it. Focused on the main quests. I don't like how they place like, level 30 and 40 fucking enemies in areas where you have to beat up a level 8 story relevant enemy, I got killed by them because I aggro'd them while fighting another guy. I know there are options to turn enemy aggro off unless you aggressively initiate them but I don't own that DLC yet.
So far, the game reminds me of Spore except it has auto-attack in cooldown phases. I just click ready abilities (like Spore) and I don't quite understand combo mechanisms nor blade customizations yet. I like the characters so far and I actually like the campiness of some cutscenes, such as that pirate dude with the giant armor blade guy arguing about what color emerald is. Rex doesn't bother me, I find him amusing, Pyra is likable and I sorta get the idea that she's supposed to be deity-like that's why she's idealized, but I still don't like her outfit and her overall design because I think it runs a huge disservice to her character. Nia is generally great so far, Tora is fine even if Nopons strongly remind me of Jar Jar Binks from the way they talk.
also i like how if you land from a great height into a slide you get a huge speed boost. i think a lot of this has interesting speedrunning implications id love to speedrun this one and also world 2 (as you can see from my previous post i already speedran world 1 lmao)me on discord said:theres an animation for if you slide off a ledge but can still ledgegrab
if i had a nickel for each time i played a platforming game series where you go fast and the characters animations are really good and have a lot of little neat touches and rare animations for specific circumstances youre not likely to see often i would have 3 nickels
