Both 1 and 2 are better than Pokémon Legends. Winky Face (X is not, but still good in its own strange way.)

Well, somehow this has made its way into my house. I had a little bit of a gap in the schedule and a week off next week (that I'm meant to be using to do some writing and have another shot at Pikmin 3), and apparently I'm going to spend part of that seeing how much Xenoblade 1 has improved before Xenoblade 3 devours my time later this year. I regret nothing.

Guess for you, could just jump to the new bit.

Nah I'm not doing that, I'm straight back into the main game! Not heard great things about the new bit in any case.

Once again, I have switched straight over to Japanese voices. Dunban sounds good, Shulk sounds stilted, but Reyn - Reyn was too much. Also, you do get a lot of side quests dumped on you near the beginning huh.

I liked the new bit for what it's worth, but I think it lands better following on from a playthrough of the main game first as opposed to a standalone thing.

I'm also quite fond of the English voice acting - it's far removed from your usual tropey anime dub and I think it adds a lot of charm to the game. How've you been finding the improvements in the Switch port?

Pfft, I should probably try it but to be honest I've had enough Xenoblade 1 for a while, and should probably take a break before 3 anyway. Plus, two Nopon party members doesn't fill me with joy, even if Riki is by a way the best Nopon party member in the series.

As for the improvements, here's the summary that you missed because you were too busy disappearing up Kingdom Hearts' bumhole. Razz The side-quests are a damn sight better, which brings them from 'obtuse and crap' to 'mostly less obtuse... and still crap'. The visuals are obviously better, but that brings things that haven't aged as well (e.g. the walking animation) into starker relief. I didn't notice the reorchestrated music to be honest: what I mostly noticed is that the soundtrack's several degrees worse than 2's, while still being a banger. Gaur Plains << Gormott.

It was an interesting to thing to replay in preparation for 3, even if that was partly just realising how far the series has come. Roll on next month!

Ah, I did indeed miss that review! Some fair criticisms there - I think I still used a guide for the Colony 6 rebuild stuff - and some I'd disagree with, namely in regards to the soundtrack. Mind you, this is all coming from a "haven't played XC2 yet" standpoint.

I remember both the Nopon lads in the new bit to be pretty good, actually. Also, for what it's worth, I've a sneaking suspicion that the ending of the new bit might have some sort of implication for XC3.

The soundtrack's still grand, don't get me wrong - it's just been noticeably improved upon in that game you haven't played.  And should, before 3.  And won't.

Aw, not the TWEWY problem again!  Ah well, I'll do what I did then and read a summary. Razz

I mean I'd imagine I'll play XC2 before I ever play XC3... just maybe not before the release date of XC3. Laughing
