      fpwp. OP, Xeno 2 is gachaslop. Don't fall for the oddly large fan base it has here. It's only good because it has huge breasts and funny accents. 3 is actually a good game devoid of gacha elements (!!!)

      Future Connected has shit gameplay and a plot that barely even has anything to do with 3 beyond the existence of fog beasts. Do not play that garbage. The other DLC campaigns in 2 and 3 are great though.

      In my opinion, X is the best game of the 4, but your mileage may vary if you can stomach worse gameplay in exchange for a better story.

      >Side quests
      >X anywhere other than last
      You have a better chance of pulling Kos-mos in 2 than getting some of the collectibles required for X's quests. There's also the tedious 100 lobster one as well, which is by far the worst quest in the entire series. Did you actually play the game?

          How can you possibly say this? It was the best side content in the series, with X being the other other contender. The plot is structured in a way where side quests are also contributing to it. You're typically fighting the big bad team, or helping people recover from them. It never feels like a waste of time.

          From a plot standpoint, none of the side quests available after chapter 6 in Xenoblade 2 are canon because the story never has enough breathing room where the party can pursue other activities.

              This is like saying that the work we put into any story is pointless because people eventually die.
              The value of seeing stuff like Zeon's farm get itself together or Ashera's ravens finally get their rematch with their commander or even Triton trying to give a drinking buddy his last request is that they're more about the characters growing and developing than anything else. The reason why Zeon's farm is so meaningful narratively is it proves that the soldiers could survive without having to kill other soldiers to do so. They could be self-sufficient and find a better way to live and proved to themselves that life isn't just about dog-eat-dog
              It's why a ton of the side quests before Zeon's Ascension quest are around trying to convince everyone to take a chance on farming and persist with it through rough streaks and mistakes, even when some would rather just go kill Agnians like they always have

                No it really isn't comparable. People can live behind a legacy when they die. A reset is a reset, the worlds are literally erased. They didn't gain those experiences since the reset erased them.
                The city people aren't even guaranteed to be born again, so they definitely didn't get their legacy left behind

                First, we know that's not true since not only does Melia point out that the things that happened in Aionios really happen, but we know elements of Aionios persisted into the new worlds, like Noah hearing and being drawn to the Agnian Offseer flute tune of Mio from across the world.
                The entire point of the last scene in base-game 3 is that elements of Aionios did persist into the new world. And it's made more explicit in FR to show that the worlds are able to interlink afterwards

                Sometimes the events that happen in a short time period can have disproportionately huge effects, like ending the Endless Now and allowing the worlds to restart while also creating a bond between them that allows them to interlink and rejoin healthily afterward

              First of all, the games' ending presupposes that you did all of the side content. That's why all of the heroes are present at the end and why Zeon doesn't look like a holocaust survivor.
              Second of all, they say "everything that exists is reality." Everything happened, and just real. The true Noah at the end of the game still remembers Mio's song. At the end of the DLC we see the worlds reunite.

                Noah remembering Mio's song is canon. We literally hear it at the end of the game. And because their memories still exist, and just aren't immediately accessible, the same is true for everyone else's.

                It's meaningless anyways because Noah and Mio both immediately reunite. They both immediately get exactly what they wanted, without any of the bad things from Aionios. But only those two for some reason. Even though they became Moebius and directly contributed to the problem, unlike everyone else in the party, they're the only two who deserve a reward according to the story.

                The truth is that the writers just didn't care about anyone else besides Noah and Mio, and didn't expect the players to either.

                Anon, we don't even know if Noah and Mio really got all their memories back. The point is that the bond that formed between people and the worlds in Aionios persisted after the reboot and allowed them to rejoin. That's the narrative message there: that your bonds can grow strong and persist past even insurmountable separation

                The reason they're the ones that are focused on is because they're the deuteragonists of the story. It's not that they're literally special, but that, on account of main-character privilege, their bond is implied to be the strongest Aionios had ever seen, overcoming the cycle of rebirth and Homecoming even.
                But it's not like they're the only ones who reunite. Given what we see of FR, it's more likely they're just the first
                >Even though they became Moebius and directly contributed to the problem
                Anon, do you not get that it's specifically BECAUSE they became moebius that their bond is stronger. They became Moebius and gave up on their futures, but re-discovered the hope and strength to move forward from their reincarnated iterations we play as in XB3. It's not about rewarding them, it's about how their bond and the trials it went through is the blueprint of how the worlds were able to reboot and rejoin at all.
                The whole point is that after N and M rejoined the rest of Moebius after the Z fight, the myriad of souls that were holding Origin back from rebooting the world had gained the same hope for the Future that Noah and Mio instilled in N and M. And it was done through finding each other and connecting to them.
                This is like the basic thesis of the entire Xeno franchise: people are imperfect and weak on their own but become more perfect through the bonds and relationships we form with others. The worlds interlinking and re-joining is the same basic premise of how the party members did too: they would experience a strong enough emotion that broke down the barriers between them and let them combine their efforts and forms.

                I'm sure the City people would've been comforted by that knowledge as N was driving his katana through their skulls. Sure they're going to die, and may not be reborn, but it's okay because it's helping fix Noah and Mio's relationship!!!

                Yeah, because their the main characters. You're getting mad that the last seconds of the story focus on the primary romance between the two main characters.
                Yes, their relationship is in-universe the strongest relationship that's ever been but that's not to say that it's the only relationship that is strong enough to have this effect. But if you're going to focus on someone at the end of your game, use a single example as implication of something that will happen en masse, you would focus on your main character.
                >It doesn't show that everyone else will retain their memories or even reunite again.
                For one, we know other people retain memories from their past lives since Eunie and Ashera do. But also, you're being moronic.
                How about we use basic inductive reasoning, since that's partly how stories tend to convey and paint broader phenomena: if we see Noah and Mio reunite (we don't even know to what degree their memories have returned), and we see the Worlds interlink, it stands to reason that Noah and Mio were just the first and the Worlds interlinking is the final stage of that reunion process that started with Noah and Mio.
                >Yes it is. Z says so.
                He says that they surpassed the system of the world and persisted beyond homecoming, which itself implies that the system attempts to be applied to them but they're pushing past it. It's less of an exception and more implied that their bond is strong enough that they keep coming back and keep being drawn to each other.

                Why not show the entire party then? The other four helped just as much as Noah and Mio did. And they didn't join the evil side, like Noah and Mio.

                Ah, I see. It's because the key thing drawing Noah over to Mio across the worlds is the sound of Offseer music, which is mainly important to him and Mio as, well, Offseers.
                Given that the scene goes out on that music, it makes sense that the camera focuses on Noah and Mio (and also they are the main characters)
                >And they didn't join the evil side, like Noah and Mio.
                Completely irrelevant
                >Nah, it stands to reason that the writers didn't care about the other characters. Just the one who committed a genocide.
                >Subtext is headcanon
                This is what I mean when I say some people have a wikipedia-summary level understanding of art and stories
                You can read into things that aren't literally or explicitly stated by putting different clues together. It's like seeing Pyra and thinking "huh, what a weird random split-personality for Mythra to create" instead of realizing she's Mythra's imagines as a superior version of herself
                >which would also imply their bond is the only one strong enough to remain.
                Not if the whole worlds interlinked like they did in FR. We know that other party members are able to retain memories from their past lives in Aionios (like eunie or Ashera) but as 'dreams'.
                Let me ask, you, why do you think the worlds interlinked at all in FR?

                Everyone is shown getting a happy ending in XC2. The entire party is there. In 3, only Noah and Mio (the ones who contributed to genocide) get rewarded.

                Also, I don't know if I'd say XB2 is as critical of mass-murderers as XB3 given that they give Jin a big heroic redemption, and who knows how many people died while Rex was trying to talk Malos down.
                >The shit that Shania did was practically nothing compared to what N did, yet the fanbase hates Shania and only wishes ill for her.
                We're not talking about the fanbase, we're talking about the game. And the game itself is quite sympathetic to Shania. Shania herself is meant to mirror N and Joran's own descent into Moebius.

                It should either show everyone else getting a happy ending too, or leave the whole thing ambiguous. Noah and Mio shouldn't be the only ones rewarded, especially when they helped cause the problem.

                But you keep seeing it as 'rewarding' when that's not what the story is trying to do. It's not trying to have some Santa-Claus style allocation of outcomes based on the aggregate moral weight of the actions of characters.
                But if we're getting into it, I'd say there's two things to keep in mind:
                Noah and Mio are both the individuals we played as in 3 (the reincarnations based on the hopes and regrets of N and M) and the total lives of N and M themselves. As such, are XB3's Noah and Mio responsible for the things N and M did, even after re-absorbing them?
                N and M are clearly distinct entities from the Noah and Mio we play as and the ultimate gist is that they basically do sacrifice themselves by re-joining Moebius, telling Noah and Mio to take their place in the future. They basically cease to exist when they rejoin with Moebius to 'infect' them with the Hope that Noah and Mio returned to them.
                But even if we do hold them accountable for N and M's actions, the core of the story remains the same: that the courage and hope to move forward into the future is what allows all of Moebius to end the Endless Now and let Origin proceed with its reboot process. The moral of the story is that even if you slip up along the way, the important part is ultimately getting up again and continuing to move forward rather than just staying where you fell and fricked up.
                >Just like with N??
                Yeah. Xenoblade in general has a pretty loose attitude towards the redemption of mass-murderers
                >Flute sound + he disappears
                To my point above, the Flutes only mean something to Noah and Mio, not N and M. It's why the flute plays for M(io)'s boss fight but not any other Moebius. The experience of being an Offseer is a major crux in how Noah and Mio develop as people differently from N and M. It's a big part of what lets them make different decisions and retain hope for the future

                Yes it is. Noah gets rewarded for being the MC because he's the only one the writers care about.
                >N and M are clearly distinct entities from the Noah and Mio we play as
                They're the same people with the same souls. Noah even admits he would commit genocide like N if his own Mio died.

                Or maybe the story isn't interested in trying to reward characters but just have their stories play out based on their personality and relationships and the overall themes the writers want to pursue?
                Mythra's kill count is only marginally less than Malos', but she gets a happy ending. Are you upset about that? Of course not, because the point is that Mythra learns to forgive herself and trust others again whereas Malos cannot stop trying to murder-suicide the world out of his own self-hatred
                >They're the same people with the same souls
                Then why do N and M exit Mio and Noah's bodies after you beat Z?

                That only happens for Noah and Mio. So again, those are the only 2 characters the writers care about. Which is why it's so weird that only they get their happy ending even though they contributed to genocide.

                I think it's disingenuous to look at Mythra aiming her laser at Torna (while trying to hit Malos) as less intentional than Noah being forced to relive all his collective loss and trauma and then put to the choice of sacrificing his home for his wife or vice versa.
                Mythra was still conscious and aware of what she was doing, she was just locked up emotionally because of the trauma. It's not like she was possessed or unconscious, just emotionally dead inside during that part of the fight. You can hold her as accountable for her actions as you can Noah
                And, for what it's worth, XB2 DOES hold Mythra accountable (along with Malos) for the destruction of Torna. At no point does anyone or the camera even imply that Mythra wasn't really responsible for her actions. The point is that when you're in an emotionally fragile state, you'll do things you normally wouldn't and make bad decisions. And I'd wager that's even more evident given that both Noah and Mythra are the split-personality characters of their games who manifest a more idealized version of themselves

                I'm of mixed feelings about N in FR honestly. I preferred it when he had to raze the City just to entertain Z as part of his impossible choice rather than as a defender of Aionios and its soldiers. But on the other hand, I do think his interactions with Ghondor and Matthew are great and I think the contrast between the Futurist Alpha and the Regressive N is great. I love how they both accuse each other of literally the same thing they're both doing but in different ways, and it takes Matthew and Ouroboros to become a link from the past and present to the future.
                Like I said, I'm very mixed about N's inclusion and role in FR. There's stuff I like about it and stuff I hate

                The only thing she's explicitly shown not responsible for is the shot that killed Milton, but she doesn't know that herself

                Right, and I don't think she blames herself for that since she knows Malos did it before she lost her mind, but I think what really did her in about Milton's death was how Mikhail tries to protect his body from Mythra when she gets close and she realizes she's really not any better or safer than Malos. That's why Pyra being weaker is actually an improvement over her original self, at least from Mythra's own perspective. A weaker, more effeminate, better-cooking and more tactful person (Pyra) is better than a dangerous, brash, uncouth and unsympathetic person (Mythra's self image).

                This falls apart entirely when no one calls out Mythra for being so fragile despite acting so haughty and arrogant and there is LITERALLY an entire play that glorifies and REWRITES her actions by one of the people who was THERE.
                Mythra is not actually held accountable because the japanese think a sad backstory or self grief is an excuse to forgive a character in their writing more often than not. Not once does Rex look at Mythra differently, get cold to her, or anything. I mean frick, when she leaves, he just has a fricking mental breakdown instead! Are you shitting me?
                Also the entire thing with Noah still falls apart because of the same reason Shulk's changed mind is looked down upon: he HAS his Mio. The only way Noah's choice has ANY impact at all would be if Mio stayed dead and Noah moved on regardless. But that isn't what happened, and I'm still baffled that people keep ignoring this blatant contradiction.

                Yeah, because their the main characters. You're getting mad that the last seconds of the story focus on the primary romance between the two main characters.
                Yes, their relationship is in-universe the strongest relationship that's ever been but that's not to say that it's the only relationship that is strong enough to have this effect. But if you're going to focus on someone at the end of your game, use a single example as implication of something that will happen en masse, you would focus on your main character.
                >It doesn't show that everyone else will retain their memories or even reunite again.
                For one, we know other people retain memories from their past lives since Eunie and Ashera do. But also, you're being moronic.
                How about we use basic inductive reasoning, since that's partly how stories tend to convey and paint broader phenomena: if we see Noah and Mio reunite (we don't even know to what degree their memories have returned), and we see the Worlds interlink, it stands to reason that Noah and Mio were just the first and the Worlds interlinking is the final stage of that reunion process that started with Noah and Mio.
                >Yes it is. Z says so.
                He says that they surpassed the system of the world and persisted beyond homecoming, which itself implies that the system attempts to be applied to them but they're pushing past it. It's less of an exception and more implied that their bond is strong enough that they keep coming back and keep being drawn to each other.

                >Lmao, the way the story jerks off these shitty awful characters is so funny.
                Anon, I don't know what to tell you if you can't into subtext and story themes. Yeah, N did awful and horrific shit but the entire basis here is that his ability to at least accept his actions and want to atone is the basis of his ability to move into the future.
                N's entire character is that he's so afraid of confronting his mistakes and deeds that he has to regress into an increasingly deranged and immature version of himself to cope.
                Your idea that "well if you do bad things, you should be treated as an unequivocal villain who lacks humanity" is nonsense in a series that has revenge and forgiveness as a core narrative idea and theme throughout.
                The point isn't even that they forgive N, it's that they convince him to try to make the world a better place again, rather than just holding it still in fear of making things worse. Having the courage to take a risk on the future with the hopes of a better world is the essence of N's arc here, not that mass-murderers need to be forgiven

                Plenty of other villains in this series get offed unceremoniously. Egil, Mumkhar, even fricking Jin (who definitely atoned as miuch as N did). N just gets special treatment because the writers just love Noah for some reason.

                That's why Noah is a shit protagonist. He's not a good person, he doesn't have strong morals, he doesn't care about other people except for Mio. He's only a "good guy" because his Mio was the one who didn't die.

Shulk changed his tone because he realized the Mechon, at least the Faces, weren't just soulless robots, and by the time he gets to Egil he's aware there's also an entire race of people on the other titan. Not killing Mumkhar is the only stupid part of the latter half of the story. I'm not exactly sure what Shulk's point was. Mumkhar didn't deserve anything but death. He turned into a murderous psychopath who was fully aware of his actions. He wasn't even brainwashed like the later Face pilots. Even the game agrees becuse they kill him anyway. I get that the game is trying to shove down your throat some moral about ending the cycle of violence, but it doesn't work when it wasn't violence that put Mumkhar on that path. He just wants to kill people because he's a selfish prick that felt slighted by not being chosen to use the Monado.

                >he doesn't have strong morals
                It's weird to hear someone say this when Noah is arguably the one who thinks about what's moral more than Shulk or Rex do. It's one of the big things that he broods on a ton.
                It's why the party thinks its weird that he sees Moebius or Joran's mud clones off, even when they were enemies or just empty facsimiles. Because he finds something morally important in doing so, in recognizing the existence of something that used to be alive until you or someone else ended it

                If someone would actually go on a genocide run because they lost their girlfriend then no they do not have strong morals.
                >Being a "good person" doesn't mean you never do, think, or feel anything bad
                But it does mean you don't kill your own son or commit a genocide.
                And again, I bring this up because the writers think that only Noah deserves to be rewarded despite doing all of this.

                Ignoring FR's account of the City's destruction, the point of N's actions is that when put at his most vulnerable and broken, and given the choice between his love and his home, he's going to end up destroying something extremely precious to him and regretting it.
                That's why Noah also points out that, if he was in the same situation, he'd likely have made the same choice. Not because Noah really wants to commit Genocide but because he could imagine his own failure to make the altruistic choice in a situation where he's so beaten down and only offered two impossible trade-offs.
                It's specifically because Noah's experiences and support network are wider and more robust than N's that he can make the decision to continue into the future over the now, even if he's left alone at the end of the day (which is clearly something N feared more).
                N is not a genocidal person in his personality, he doesn't really want to go kill everyone in the City. But at his lowest,, when only offered two choices, his selfishness and cowardice and pain-aversion won out by a hair

                Noah doesn't care about his friends though. At the end he literally abandons them (again) to run off when he hears Mio. He doesn't even try to help his friends find their own partners.
                >even if he's left alone at the end of the day
                He isn't. As soon as the worlds reset, he immediately gets Mio back, exactly like he wanted. There are no stakes.
                >N is not a genocidal person in his personality, Yes he fricking is. Just look at the way he talks to the party, he relishes in creating pain.

                Being a "good person" doesn't mean you never do, think, or feel anything bad just like being brave doesn't mean never feeling afraid. I have the distinct feeling that you don't have a lot of experience with people. Sometimes good people do bad things. Sometimes good people are right on the edge of being bad, but Noah has strong beliefs about the sanctity of life which keep him from making the decisions N made. He also doesn't have a son to kill, like N. He even sends Moebius when they die.

                In 3, unironically no one dies. It all happens in a brief second, and then suddenly, their biggest problem, the worlds colliding, is inexplicably resolved. The only question is what happens to the City people? Like most of the questions 3 raises, there's no answer at all, let alone a shitty one.

          I think the biggest issue with 3 is the lack of strong landmarks to pick out on the horizon or landscape. I would have liked to have the ferronises be more noticeable at a distance, though I imagine that part of the reason they're so secluded is to allow time for streaming in their assets before they're seen. It might have helped to break XB3's maps into smaller discrete sections so that you could put the ferronises in more prominent and easily seen locations.
          Beyond that, I think 3 looks the best in terms of character models, material shaders, lighting and also cinematography.
          People don't really appreciate how good Xenoblade cutscene framing and blocking are for telling their stories. Even 1 was great at this and 2 did well as well but 3 takes it up a notch. It's funny to me that the cutscenes in XB3 put games like TAles of Arise or FF16 to shame when it comes to visually telling their stories

                I think for Eikon fights, FF16's cinematography was pretty decent. I think for literally everything else, it was pretty unremarkable.
                There's only one scene that I actually really like in FF16 and it's when Byron blinks and sees younger Clive in the same pose as older Clive.
                Aside from that, including literally every optional quest cutscene, I can't really say I like how any of the non-Eikon fight scenes were shot or staged.
                By comparison, I can grab a pretty innocuous scene from, say, the very beginning of Teach's hero quest where the party finds Kyrie and I really like how they go to Kyrie's perspective when looking at the party member's outfits and how Mio does her little clasped-hands animation or Manana puts her wings on her hips and find that pretty cute as well as directly showing us what Kyrie is seeing (that the party don't appear as monsters)

    1-3 are loosely connected, so you’ll be fine to play 3 without playing 2.

      That's funny considering Takahashi claims that he modeled Xenoblade 1's story off of shonen anime tropes while he claims he modeled Xenoblade 2's off of "classic anime tropes" that he grew up with and told the rest of the writing staff to use nostalgia as a source of inspiration for when writing Xenoblade 2, which is why the entire plot feels like a mish-mash of 70s, 80s, and 90s anime plots with 90s/early 2000s JRPG plots because of the discrepancy betweeen all of the writers' ages.

      It's actually more the opposite
      Takahashi quotes Showa era stuff as the inspiration for 2 and more typical Shonen fare of the day as the inspiration for 1 (granted, that was in shonen manga from 2006 or so when they started work on it)
      And I don't even know if I'd say that's a bad thing. XB1 has the sort of focus and clear plot path that series around the mid-00s tended to have. XB2 meanders a lot more like classic Dragon Ball or Galaxy Express 999.
      You might be surprised that that MOE MOE ARARA stuff has existed since the 80s and 90s. People were just a lot less aware of it before anime clubs started popping up in their middle and high schools and internet culture blew up and became more mainstream

      Anon, take it from someone who played both, you'll only like FF16 more if you like Action Games like DMC more than you like JRPGs like, well, Final Fantasy pre-XV.
      It's a pretty decent action game (though I'd argue Strangers of Paradise is better on actual combat even if it's 100X more janky).
      Definitely play it for yourself but I'd crank back your expectations of RPG elements and their importance and the degree of story back to FF2 levels. A perfect marriage of peak FF and peak Action Gameplay, FF16 is not

        eh, I've been playing FF7 remake intergrade and I've certainly enjoyed it much more than XC3 so if it's anything like that I'll probably like it

        • 3 months ago
          Anonymous

          I have issues with REmake but it's a much better game than FF16 imo. The biggest issue with FF16 is that so much of its RPG and side-content feels pointless (both narratively and mechanically) that it should have just been a linear action game without gear or open-world shit. Like if it was just the bespoke levels, dungeons and boss fights, it'd be a better game in my opinion. But so much of its reward structure is about giving you pointless crafting materials for pointless gear because the entire RPG stat system is pointless because your basic abilities are strong enough to carry you through the entire game easily. Like, you could easily play this game with none of the cool Eikon abilities and just using the core sword moves + dodge and melt most enemies and bosses.
          FF7 Remake balances and marries its action and RPG elements, FF16 is an action game that had RPG shit stapled on so they could justify having so many goddamn side quests.
          Its why I'm way more excited for Rebirth over the 16 DLC. Rebirth looks like a full-ass action-RPG in equal parts, where FF16 is just an FF-themed DMC5 mod

            >you could easily play this game with none of the cool Eikon abilities
            Yes and you could also play Xenoblade 3 with 6 healing classes and let the AI do everything while you just sit back and win, your characters would never die. It's extremely boring but you could do it, there's videos on youtube. What's your point here?

                ask

                I think the biggest issue with 3 is the lack of strong landmarks to pick out on the horizon or landscape. I would have liked to have the ferronises be more noticeable at a distance, though I imagine that part of the reason they're so secluded is to allow time for streaming in their assets before they're seen. It might have helped to break XB3's maps into smaller discrete sections so that you could put the ferronises in more prominent and easily seen locations.
                Beyond that, I think 3 looks the best in terms of character models, material shaders, lighting and also cinematography.
                People don't really appreciate how good Xenoblade cutscene framing and blocking are for telling their stories. Even 1 was great at this and 2 did well as well but 3 takes it up a notch. It's funny to me that the cutscenes in XB3 put games like TAles of Arise or FF16 to shame when it comes to visually telling their stories

              You can dislike XB3 side content for not having a long-lasting effect in-universe because of the universal reset, but the stuff that happens is at least meaningful to the characters it's happening to and gives some decent rewards (be it a new party member, some gear that actually matters for gameplay potentially, or access to new quests and areas entirely).
              Like. FF16 quests do not matter mechanically because the number one type of reward are crafting materials for gear that also does not matter. You can pretty easily clear FF16 with no gear upgrades at all, it just takes longer.
              >Yes and you could also play Xenoblade 3 with 6 healing classes and let the AI do everything while you just sit back and win, your characters would never die
              The big difference is that FF16 is a full action-gameplay RPG. XB3 assumes you'll be using 5-6 AI-controlled party members so it's more about setting up your party to play off each other naturally, a little like FF12 in some ways
              So even if there are some real-time elements, the game is designed to have you think about your total party composition so that things synergize well for the other 5-6 party members when you're not controlling them.
              FF16's issue is that entire swaths of its systems aren't just less useful, they're almost pointless. Like, in XB3, if you're at-level for certain encounters, having your party mis-managed can result in you getting wiped at certain encounters. In FF16, you can just never touch the gear or crafting system ever and not notice any major issue in the difficulty of fights or bosses. FF16 would be made a better game by removing its gear and stat system entirely, and just finding something else to reward players with.
              Ouroboros forms are a bit like Eikon abilities in that they speed up fights but they're not necessary. But the big difference is that Ouroboros is a super-form you use in certain scenarios and Eikon abilities are supposed to be part of your core kit that you use regularly

But only those two for some reason. Even though they became Moebius and directly contributed to the problem, unlike everyone else in the party, they're the only two who deserve a reward according to the story.

      It actually does matter, significantly. It establishes Ouroboros/Blade Driver links as an evolved process with the capacity to link minds, the capacity for recording memories essential to mimeosomes, shows the worlds merging again, establishes the presence of anti-matter as an active player in the cosmos, puts the Trinity Processor into the world's basic ruleset, and establishes more about the Saviorites.

          Ouroboros as a concept is coming back, it's the established theme if you understand how to read a narrative. The idea of people literally coming together as one entity is going to be a point of tension in the future. I doubt party members will fuse, yes, but Ouroboros has established that in the Xenoblade setting there is a way to link minds.

          Throwaway lines are shit. I liked 3 and I loved Future Redeemed. I also really liked X, as flawed as it was. You strike me as the kind of person who experiences stories the same way people experience Wikipedia articles. I bet you don't even feel anything when you experience a narrative, you just absorb that X, Y, and Z happened. What a boring poster.

    Rex rewarded with Pyra and Mythra revival because of his ability to let them go in the end, something antagonists were not able to do for 500 years. It makes even more sense if you go deeper into his and Pneuma story arcs. I think media literacy is dead when people unironically saying "I understand that, that is obvious, its just done badly!" and really dont understand a thing. Stop smelling your farts and get off high horse.

      Except in 3's case Noah is both the protagonist and antagonist so it doesn't make sense. Rex didn't perform genocide, Noah did. Rex didn't kill his own son, Noah did.
      He's being rewarded even though he contributed to genocide. It would be a bit better if he wasn't the ONLY one getting rewarded, but it would still be dumb.

          They are all the same person, they share the same soul. Noah admits he would've done the same things N did if his Mio had died.

          If you did you would know Ghondor defended Nael aka Alpha. N wasn't trying to kill him

          N literally tells Matthew that Ghondor wanted to die. And let's remember that N was also trying to kill his own great grandaughter

            The entire point of xenoblade 3 is that nobody is truly ontologically evil, its establishment and enviroment that forces systematic opression and break people. The world is bad, the world is villian, the world must be destroyed, all city people fricking die and they are okay with this because this would bring better world with freedom to choose. There are moebius and ouroboros inside of us, good and evil, you are accounted to your actions under freedom, not thoughts you didnt act upon, not something you did in literal perputal hell. The notion of Noah "being rewarded" is bad because Noah did something bad is very stupid. Also legacy and learning from the past mistakes and mending whole is another major theme in the game and literally whats happens with universes and ends Klaus saga.

                Z is not a person but a concept, thought-form, embodiment of desire and fear. There is multiple dialogues supporting his views - how it is natural to feed upon lives of others, that with infinite repeats everyone will steal their win from others eventually, how halting natural flow of time is actually saving everyone from total annihilation and he is right about that but still wrong because of there is no "true content" in this perpetual world and its exactly what brought xenoblade trilogy in action - humanity desire for beyond, for eternity, for power, never content with their lot. Truth of moebius is laid bare through J, N, M, D and final Z moments with whole I HATE IT speech.

                Even Z isn't really evil but the shared Lowest Common Denominator of humanity. He represents our worst tendencies but the point is that nobody is JUST their worst tendencies.
                He's satanic in the classical sense as a charmer of people to be their worst selves and make selfish and short-sighted decisions and give up hope. But he's meant to represent that facet of all people, he's born from our worst tendencies but he's just a mirror of one side of humanity, not humanity as a whole.

              It really isn't, and especially not when he's the only one who gets a reward. Other people who didn't commit genocide should also be rewarded like Noah, at the very absolute least.
              Also, Jin committed genocide like Noah, and he faced the consequences for it. Noah just gets forgiven because......?

    Whenever people gripe about headcanon or speculation you have to wonder if they're actually just morons. Yes there are stupid schizo theories that people mostly just post for fun (Dirk being Mythra's son), but things like Noah and Mio meeting again at the end of the game because the world's merged and understanding that genetic memory is now part of the Xeno series is pretty basic media literacy.

      I always find it humorous that living Aionios is objectively more hellish than daily life in Valisthea. They're dying shithole worlds infested by monsters but if you're not born an bearer or certain Eikon host and live in one of the populated cities life in Valisthea isn't bad at all compared to Aionios where you spend literally every moment of your life toiling and struggling to survive with monsters just hanging outside of your colony. Not even getting into the endless cycle of death and rebirth

      • 3 months ago

        The big difference for me is that the shittiness of life in Aionios applies to 99% of the population, whereas Bearers are a minority in Valisthea. Also, a bearer could disguise themselves if they're not branded and pass by without anyone knowing so long as they never use magic.
        Soldiers in Aionios are trapped by some cosmically ordained built-in expiration date from birth. There's no escape.

      Or maybe the story isn't interested in trying to reward characters but just have their stories play out based on their personality and relationships and the overall themes the writers want to pursue?
      Mythra's kill count is only marginally less than Malos', but she gets a happy ending. Are you upset about that? Of course not, because the point is that Mythra learns to forgive herself and trust others again whereas Malos cannot stop trying to murder-suicide the world out of his own self-hatred

      This series, even at its worst, surpasses the modern entries of nearly every other series for me aside from maybe LAD/Yakuza. Octopath is getting better, but for the time being, Xenoblade is my favorite JRPG series since the day the first entry released and I can't think of any other series that have been as strong, pound-for-pound, as Xenoblade
