Hype is over, someone make a Game thread!

Done! I'll spiffy thus one up a but when I get back from out of state. Here for some sudden family business.

However, my copy of Xenoblade Chronicles X is arriving tomorrow and I am stoked! The reviews have been generally positive. I guess the game lacks slightly in areas but they can be overlooked for the sheer density and fun this game has. Looking forward to diving into it next week. Hopefully when I return sunday.

I've been a pile of cock bark lately, I haven't played in literal weeks now. What happened? I've been hella sleepy though, I'll probably get some in on Saturday and/or Sunday.

I take it Chapter 8 has some cool beans?

Yeah, it was pretty fun. But like most people have been saying, the meat of the game is all the affinity missions. I'm having more fun with those than the actual story.

I did a couple depressing missions in a row (A False Hope and A Proper Chopper), and I've finally started Chapter Six. It's almost Skell time

@mrbiggsly Hey, finally, someone on this thread that isn't level 50+ I'm currently level 23 (I think), and just finished Chapter 5. Currently doing a few affinity missions myself.

I'm at level 35, so I'm pretty overpowered for all the affinity and story quests I'm doing right now. I just spend alot of time wandering around killing things and planting data probes
03/03/16, 22:14   

Oh wow, you're even more overpowered than I am. My main guy is only level 33. In my skells, the missions haven't been particularly difficult thus far. I pretty much do the same thing you do; wander around, kill things, explore, plant probes, do side quests, etc.

I think I'm only 46. I haven't touched it in WEEKS though. Maybe I'll get some poop in tomorrow night.
03/05/16, 01:52   
I might ACTUALLY play tonight. My, its been too long..
03/17/16, 01:19   

Wish I could play too. I'll probably play Friday or Saturday night.
03/17/16, 13:52   
@mrbiggsly What was depressing about those? Though I don't think I've done the first one yet.
03/17/16, 21:10   
I don't think I have played this in like a month or so. Super busy and when I do get to game it is for like an hour or so, so I tend to stick with games that are easier to jump in and out of.

Break is coming up soon though, will try to get some real GAMING done. Maybe.

I can confirm that with my time off, I have NO F'ING IDEA what I was doing, or what to do now. UGHHHH.

I was playing almost nightly, HOURS at a time, and now I'm like "...huh?"

False Hope ends with an NPC shooting herself in the head

Proper Chopper If you pick the wrong color wire you get more money but the chopper explodes killing everyone and causing the NPC you were interacting with to sulk in a corner

This game, like the first one, can feel like trudging through mud sometimes. You just have to stick with it, even if it's just a few minutes every night.

I've been spending most of my time planting data proves... Primordia Noctillum Oblivia and Sylvalum are pretty much done I just need to finish off Cauldros
03/18/16, 16:23   

I did make SOME progress the other night. With the aid of my Skell, I was able to get rid of that "Cliffpercher" guy (he was a Lv10 crab -- one hit), and I went ALLLL the way around Noctilum on the water and discovered a secret beach! Wow!

Also, I now have Boze in my party, so thats rad. And his location IS marked on the map, so I'm confused how I missed it over and over and over and over....and over.

Finally finished this last night, really had to grind for a while to get a level 50 skell, even though my probes were getting me 100k+ each time. Finished with about 93 hours on the clock at level 53.

Enjoyed the ending, but the cliffhanger setup for a sequel that may not ever come was a bit disappointing.

Think I'll be sticking to games less demanding of my time for a while now.

So if anyone has completed a quest called "Unknown Assailant" please tell me about it, How did that one go for you.

@mrbiggsly It gets worse.
03/25/16, 04:06   
I know... I found another quest involving the Water Purification Plant and I'm afraid to do it
03/25/16, 15:54   
@mrbiggsly Ah, yeah, I guess I got lucky and picked the correct wire.

Gotta think about the choices you make in this game, else you may end up killing people!

@achhibbar I'm actually not so sure that bit at the end is a cliffhanger, now that I think about it. I think it may instead be a way of damning these people for the choices they've made. It just doesn't feel substantial enough to be anything to build a sequel onto.

@Mop it up
Yeah I'm not really sure what the point of it was - perhaps some DLC was planned and the poor performance of the console prevented them from moving forward.

There are some things that happen, like them suggesting that Mira is somehow alive and allowing alien species to understand each other. Or even that some force is trapping all these aliens on the planet for some reason. It all seemed to point to something that the game didn't come close to explaining.
03/25/16, 23:22   
@mrbiggsly hehhehhehhehheh.

I think I know which one it is... Protip: do it at night, the atmosphere for it is just perfect.
