  1. Xenoblade Chronicles 2

    ...and Chapter 5 done. The first stage of the closing battle was a right pain in the arse, but it forced me to finally learn about breaking orbs so I suppose it did its job nicely. Wish this had a bestiary so I could check out all the monsters in the down-time. I love that kind of stuff.
  2. Xenoblade Chronicles 2

    I quite like the big ones roaming around the open spaces where you can avoid them easily enough, as it keeps you on your toes, but standing next to the only doorway leading to your destination is just dumb. Still, the game is excellent. I havent been this absorbed in a JRPG in years.

    Thanks! Hopefully I can get Spotify working over here again. It's a bit fussy here. Current listening:
  4. Xenoblade Chronicles 2

    This game does some odd things, sometimes. Like it told me to go to a certain place and the route looked obvious enough, but they plonked a load of Lvl 80+ enemies in front of the doorway I needed to get through, so being way off that level I doubted myself and assumed I needed to look elsewhere. That seems like a normal response to me Nope, I spent an hour looking for another route and it turns out they just intend for you to leg it past them all, hoping for the best. What's the bloody point of that?

    Pretty sure I saw something exactly like this from a seller on Taobao. Will see if I can find them again.

    Oh, it's him is it? I met him once at a party about a decade ago and he was being a bit of a nob. Never bothered with the music much.

    It sounds like they took the most boring ten seconds of Kero Kero Bonito's worst song and looped it for four minutes. It's bloody awful.
  9. The weird effects of the original short made me feel a bit queasy, and it completely failed to capture anything interesting or amusing of the era it was trying to evoke. Just tiresome sequences of tacky, distorted nostalgia. I dislike most of that synth-wave rammel for similar reasons.

    Stop being so easily pleased, Stanley.
  11. Xenoblade Chronicles 2

    I'm at the second big city now. I love this game. Some thoughts: - The cutscene in which you first meet Poppi is bloody amazing. - I think I understand about half, though likely less, of what's going on in the combat. - The compass markers are....interesting. - The music is wonderful.

    Yeah, that stood out for me too. Corgan seems to spend most of his time moaning about money these days.

    Excellent thread title.

    D'arcy having her say, in her first interview in many, many years: https://www.alternativenation.net/smashing-pumpkins-bassist-darcy-first-interview-in-20-years/ Given everything we know about Corgan over the years, I'm inclined to believe a lot what of she says here.
