And thank God for emulation

  2. I think its hilarious that the resolution on native hardware sometimes gets lower than a fucking NES game, I should just plug the damn thing into an old CRT

    • The sharpening filter will probably ruin it, the devs really needed access to their entire team and a bit more time so that they could properly optimize the game, even then the characters are really high poly, and there’s loads of them on screen at once, which I think is just a result of time constraints and the games massive amount of contracted developers. This is one of the few Switch titles where the low memory bandwidth doesn’t stop it from hitting a sold 1080p with higher res textures.

  3. Xenoblade is a series that legitimately needs the sales, at least by some merch for it to show the devs that there’s demand so that they can keep producing them, unless you don’t care about future entries in which case whatever.

  5. I’m trying to play through XC1/XCX/XC2, does anyone have an optimized settings guide for XC1? I don’t mean visual, though that’s cool, I mean optimized for stability. When I tried it like a decade ago I couldn’t get past the first dungeon due to crashing.

    >DON’T want to give the developers money

    The fuck is wrong with you? I understand emulating to try out a game and if you hate it then you just stop playing it, but if you like it you should buy it. It’s only fair.

      • It’s basically the exact same game except it looks nicer and is less tedious to play since it’s got a bunch of QoL stuff. But if you beat the game and felt satisfied, then there’s no reason to play it.
        Future Connected is pretty fun though, doubly so if you’re a Meliahomosexual.

        • I did enjoy Xenoblade 1 a lot, and I also spent a lot of time doing side-quests, if it’s pretty much the same I don’t know if I want to repeat all the side-quests again, the one with the ice cabbage mentally broke me.

          • Understandable. For me, it was rebuilding Colony 6, looking for Black Liver Beans with their stupid 7% drop rate was maddening.

  8. Mustards are short sighted homosexuals. Piracy is literally why games are so aggressively monetized and forced online. You are a piece of shit and it’s due to people like you that gaming is utterly garden gnomed.

    • Ask Nintendo to release Xenoblade on PC then I’ll buy the game and all DLCs
