The different kingdoms with all their banners kind of reminded me of an anime Game of Thrones. Game looks really fun. I loved the first one (X not as much), so I'll probably pick it up sooner rather than later.

Con, Com, Conny con-con- IT'S NOT THAT IMPORTAnt...to the point where I can't actually be mad for more than a second...still, don't be a grammar Nazi, Arti. I don't think I would've noticed the mispelling if you hadn't pointed it out, and I'm stricter about that stuff than most others...
I'm more concerned with who Arti tried to grammar nazify...of all the people here, Aeolus is one of 2 who I know better than to challenge on a grammatical level...I feel like his new love of this forum is to nail every mistake Arti makes for the next REST OF TIME.

Is my reputation on this site that bad?

You know, I can get down with Scottish Anime. Especially since this game is diving straight into the deep end of Anime (I can only hope it ends up in the Skies of Arcadia corner of the Anime space as that would be both cool and good).


Also, you're missing an 'n' in your spelling of 'Nintendo'. Also also, you failed to correctly capitalize the proper noun 'Nintendo Direct', especially since you had already properly spelled and capitalized the word 'Scottish' within the same sentence....okay, I may have a problem.

Spoiler: show
:p

I feel that we're overlooking something...http://gematsu.com/2017/09/xenoblade-chronicles-2-launches-december-1

...oh right. A confirmed release date and SE. This continues to be a busy week (Ys VIII, Samus Returns, and now more preorders).

Great, now I need a Switch.
Getting some seriously delicious ps2 era jrpg vibes from this game.

Definitely getting the Special Edition. I love art books.

Well I HAVE a Switch and I don't even like Xenoblade, so we're both in a bind.

I don't understand the excitement. I was a fan of XBC and XBCX and this looks like a few steps backwards from both those titles.

Xenoblade fans shouted this ad nauseum about Xenoblade X, which ended up being one of the best RPGs I've ever played.  For now, I'll assume they know what they're doing with this one, too, despite the looks.

I will trade you it for a 2000 Isuzu Amigo. Hard Top.

Because Takahashi still hasn't given up on his mad dream of fully exploring the Xenowhatever mythos and I'm in too deep to turn back now.

At the very least, I'm hoping for something else to come out of XBCX's plot beyond a glorified prologue to a game we'll never get (and probably wouldn't want anyways).

But yeah, the cast looks a whole lot weaker than XBC1s, but I'm hoping that Red Boobies Chick is a lot more relevant to the plot than just as MC's Chick Sword and walking Plot MacGuffin that the trailers basically make her look like (one of the few nice things about XBCX was that Elma was essentially as close to the game's actual protagonist role as the game's actual protagonist was (if not more so); if only everything else about that game hadn't been so badly wasted).

At least the MC's diving helmet has finally been justified (of course, nothing could justify those assless pants).

I'm a pretty big fan of both myself, I can appreciate their differences easily and respect the separate worlds they manage to create.  I like XBC's focus more on fantasy and linearity and XBX's larger emphasis on sci-fi.  I'm honestly torn when it comes to picking a favorite, but I feel they're different enough to just say "I love em both" at the end of the day.  And dammit, Mira was a blast to explore.

XB2 looks pretty all right, but I agree the cast doesn't look as fun and from what little I've seen from trailers (I'm trying to stay on a media blackout as long as I can) just doesn't seem as intriguing and hits a lot of tropes that have been done before.  I will admit between the Controller and CE I'm amazed how fast I was still willing to throw down their asking price... for shame, Dicey, for shame.

...Man I'm so sick of cat girls... it's so unoriginal.  I want a dog girl barking at people she doesn't like... or a giraffe girl because that's funny to me.
