Misssing Processors: You may do best playing Xenoblade Chronicals 1 First.

2018-02-14 13:46

What ever became of Bionis, did it join with the others in the end at 2? Maybe, but the fact that all the years in the past Klaus had another name, one given to a Giant, and controlled by the Driver of the Aegis Alvis.
Also suggesting (as some Nopons like the Sage and a distant Guild members in XC2) that both titan sets existed on different Hemispheres of what I guess is Venus, I presume this, because, no way it’s earth, and it’s beyond Mars.
Some things like Ganglions are somewhat connected to the Mechons, perhaps not all kept on with the love of peace and attacked Earth.

Problems still…the Conduit and the other Hemisphere….

  • Have no Mechon.
  • Have no High Entia (Mira has a Telethia, so it’s possible a solitary Titan is involved here in XCX).
  • Something like Chirkin, but they are still called Tirkin in Tantal.
  • Tormar and Hodes are not around.

Remember that the Conduit was used to make use of all universal species, well not all it seems.

Alvis, he may be Addoms third sword and the reveal in Spring, although it’s a guess.

Nopons, well, clearly they can travel far, maybe it their TARDIS like homes.

It would be interesting to see something, like….opening scene: “…we need to seek the Temple, to the legendpon Hero….” “Leave planetpon,” “Find Tora” “Seek his knowledge….”

I think 2 could have done something with Rikki (it did with Bana’s family and cohorts, as with the Sage), and Rikki could have imparted some tips to Tora. Rikki hoped to travel, and they do live a long time, 500 years of Klaus/Zandza’s imprisonment and contrition would be a cake walk.

#Steam May Be Losing Me: Bait and Switch #NintendoSwitch #RCRDX #Bayonetta3 #RS2 #Gungeon #NeoGeo #MonolithSoftware

2017-12-20 09:09

Gungeon is Entered, A SaGa is Romanced a Second Time, I am Rampaging Retro…..with all that, Neo Geo Classics and it’s own in house games, it’s Team Ups with Monolith and it’s Bayonetta 3 promise. Just add a game card with Party Hard 1 and 2 on it.
It’s like the best of Steam and Nintendo with a painfully bad X-Boxish Controller, with the Start (+) and Select (-), Home and Picture Buttons in the worse place and right analog stick on too low.
Man I took so many pictures with the intent of hitting select, hit home seeking start (+). Yes, the Pro Controller, the Joy Paddles are too small.
Oh if it just got an Amazon Prime player.
The Switch has a great OS, best ever on a game system, although wouldn’t mind smaller icons. It’s got most of what I want to play, some I rebought despite having it on Steam and Retro City because it went hard copy.
Yes it’s better than the nightmare (after buying the Pro Stick on the side) I thought it would be.
Although still could use some Street Pass and more sequels, less DLC. Also realization by the market, people will end up buying and not buying due to time, 1 player games will Triumph if the system lasts long enough. But multi-player will suffer more from a deluge of games entering the market.
Which may not do Nintendo favors on the online service area.

#Monado Blade Announced: Possible Click Bating Lie. #RMMS #XenobladeChronicles2 #NintendoSwitch

2017-12-20 08:49

Frankly I am shocked they didn’t pull out a Shulk Amiibo and say, here it is, your key to the Monado Blade in Xenoblade Chronicles 2.
It’s not too stupid from a business stand point. Frankly it makes more sense to do that then use a Season Pass.
Just sell Amiibos with Uploadable Content or Unlockable Content. The latter delays the need for more data room.
That whole new story type part of a DLC might as well be a Sequel given how long you wait anyway.


But having the Monado (possibly may have made more sense as the third Aegis like blade, or at least Gramps, if he isn’t he would have made sense as such).
No matter it’s amazing there was no Amiibo aspect on this, like they are killing that like Street Pass (which could have worked on Wii U or Switch using a fob running through the Amiibo reader) and Miiverse.
It’s also amazing the Video Capture doesn’t work. Like that Boreals heart 2 heart with Tora, who didn’t want that scream moment on Twitter.
Deeper into the Story, 4 Rares to find till March or something, when it’s 5, and some side Quests neutered because I lost Pyra, like she matter’s. I had Kora early, and she is much better. Hell so is *** who switches, pardon the spoiler. Given the heal/attack ratio.

From what I gather the disaster felt Bionis and other factors led to exile of one Titan to Space and few rapidly dying Titans (relatively rapid) if you were to bunch the 1, X, and 3 Together, although X was so damn inconclusive you’d think they’d have dealt with that first.

If You Don't Have #LANoire It's Not To Late... #NintendoSwitch

It’s a relatively well put together story (sure looks a little disjointed while asking questions, not sure bad cop is understood in pre-Miranda era.).
It ends, I mean what goes on with the main character looks so typical you wouldn’t be sure of the ending. The cases are nice not cleaned up in the name of “Family Friendly,” only shame is the video update doesn’t work with it, and it doesn’t auto tag the game when images are posted. Also no fast travel is a bitch even with vehicles.


Another little annoyance is they aren’t really attempting any visual artistry in the sense that characters are a series of character actors given a cartoonish filter.
Also may have been nice to play in Black and White.
It isn’t stunning, and some character movement can be awkward (in other words nothing changed in that area from first release).
It will be worth playing to get to that Hanger, and I don’t want to spoil that.
It is more True Crime than Noir, and that doesn’t kill it, and many people may like the idea of paying it more now that this is made clear.

It’s more worth the money I spent on that then Super Mario Odyssey.

*You need 14 internal or mSD card space for extra downloaded material, so you know, for me it was annoying nothing in any sales material said this.

It's Hear, Be In Fear: Theftopolis #RCRDX #NintendoSwitch @RetroCR

What a Hilarious Collector’s Edition. Only annoying thing is the Government’s highway robbery at the post office, but that’s NAFTA for you. Only Individuals and small outfits pay.
It’s nice to see a real booklet in a game case again, VBlank.
