Playing it now, still in first stratum.

Running Matsuro, Dragoon, Mage (whatever the official name is), Shaman and the Rover.

I have the Shaman for healing but the Rover’s hound summon is doing most of the healing! Still, buffs are nice. So I have no way to really do binds oe ailments with this current party, hope that doesn’t cause issues too soon...

Standard EO fare so far, although the racial skills including the traditional harvest/chop/gather is nice so you don’t feel like you are “wasting” points...

So bought the game on Friday and am now putting it down. Just not enjoying it.

1) ok character designs are still cringe-worthy. The NPCs have more normalish proportions and then you have this anime mutant makn character. With assless chaps and a bizarre outfit. And he's supposed to be what 12? (Guessing by his height) with a mature voice? Whatever.

2) anime tropes are so heavy and cringeworthy. I guess I kind of liked the tone of the previous Xenoblade games and this one is just hard to take seriously. I guess the camera can't take it seriously since it keeps panning over to gawk at Pyra's bewbs.

3) the battle system feels like it takes a step backwards. Arts only charge if you attack and you attack only if you stand still? No stategic placing since you're not attacking and the enemy moves just as fast... can't dodge even though the attack clearly doesn't touch your sprite. And then all these different types of combos and cancelling attacks and such? And healing sucks (see posts above about potions spawning waaaaaaaaay over there...)

4) map? It's terrible. Unforgivable in a game that is supposed to have a lot of exploration.

5) the physics are really off too. The jumping is very floaty, and the swimming floatier. It just further takes me out of immersion.

At least the settings are pretty?

I bought it for my husband for Xmas, but i am tempted to find him something else and play it myself NOW.

I thought I was the only person in the entire universe who doesn't like coffee.

It gives me terrible heartburns... so yeah... I haven't drank it in years.

I just think it is gross. Give me pumpkin spice tea latte!

Technically I am allergic to dogs but I find it varies with breed and cleanliness.
I have a dog. He's pretty low on dander, and gets regular baths.

...which raises the question of how dong magic works while you are talking, but yeah, that scene was bad.

So... how does Dong magic work? 🤔

But to address Klutz's point, it happens.  Sometimes your body just naturally fiends for a short bit of time.  I think of it akin to a food craving.  Those are unpredictable yet temporary.  They don't last all that long, really.  (And it's not lost on me that, as usual, I bring some sort of food analogy into things.)

I feel like Chinese tonight? Or maybe Mexican... 🤔

I dunno. I loved Enzo's arc in AC2's series, but AC3 felt like a step down, skipped Revolution and was so bored with the one set in London that I just put it down. Just felt like I was just redoing a lot of boring fetch quests and not really experiencing anything that different / aweinspiring.

I'd have to see if the reviews make it sound like a fun RPG hybrid or a boring sandbox game with 5000 markers to clear off.

Go to Vancouver for good and plentiful sushi, where it is served any time any where (literally every block sells some, and you can eat it at sporting events too).

I am a sniper and I screwed up by crafting a rifle with grenade lobbing (I thought it would make my bullets explosive, not make my shots go in a damn arc) and carried it into a story sequence. I had to use my damn back up weapon the whole sequence because I could not swap to anything just sitting around in my inventory, WTF!

It really sucks... I had the same dilemma for an album myself... I wanted to buy it, but couldn't find a CD, pay site or anything for it unless I was willing to pay a stupid amount for some limited release thing through a third party.

FFS please make it so your fans can buy your stuff... thank you. Ended up clipping the songs off YouTube.

At least FFX had towns, games, etc to break up the monotony of the corridor.
