  1. Resetera hasn't noticed how strong their dollar is compared to other currencies such as the yen.
  2. I knew this was a possibility but not good. Sony want more consoles out there to sell services and get in those royalties. Nintendo also can't produce as many consoles as they want to. Commodities market has gone to hell. I don't own a PS5 and not planning to for some time anyway btw.
  3. For the most part I've really enjoyed it. I'm still playing it as there are some new things post-game and I just like exploring and finding secret locations and unique monsters and there may be some other interesting doo-dahs . Story fizzled a bit towards the end but still has plenty of good moments. One of the issues the game has for me is that Xenoblade 1 and 2 exist! If this is your first you may enjoy the locations more and whilst still good to me they don't beat some of the areas in Xenoblade 2 for example, many of which were quite dense and seem more lived in. You can sort of argue the premise has made some of the areas more mundane. The game does look sharper and runs better but I guess this is because along some new techniques some areas seem a bit more sparse - amazing draw distances though. I did enjoy many of the heroes, to the point where I wish there were more side stories with them and maybe they should have been incorporated more into the main story. Music is great (apart from 1 track), just not as good as some we have had in previous titles. I will probably end up getting the DLC sometime in the future, you could do some good things there. I do like the characters but sometimes the voice direction seems a bit off, I would have liked to see some more lighter moments with them. The design of some of the consuls are shit though. The above may sound a bit too negative at times but its just little criticisms thrown in. I was hooked, the world is so huge it comes across as even more content could be added. Gameplay wise it is has less frustrating moments than earlier games (2 had those annoying ways to unlock bloody field skills, crap tutorials etc), and easier to get through than 1 (which had difficulty spikes for me). It doesn't have as many moments which excited me as the first 2, I haven't bother going to the event theatre this time. Hopefully Nintendo will allow MonoliftSoft to keep on making these huge sprawling RPGs,I would love to see what they could do on updated hardware. Rating: Buy and play it/10.
  4. Completed this last night. All ascension quests done, level 86. Only took me just over 120 hours.
  5. I think there are 2 colonies who need that heavy gold to complete ascension quests. Another one has a sidequest for it. Other than money is useless. Nearly completed the game now, will share my final thoughts then. I still think Noah says "You're a light saber".
  6. For one class I think I had to help the colony by dishing out 500k in gold. Just a heads up. By then you should have loads of it as the economy is a bit broken. I still had well over a million left.
  7. They all do. Some of them have my favourite moments in the game. That's a lot of content. I'm close to the end now. Could have finished it dozens of hours ago but wanted to do the ascension and most of the side quests.
  8. It's quite easy to over-level. I've been over-levelled much of the game. You can try avoiding using the bonus xp at rest spots and ignore eating meals perhaps? Towards the end of the game they even have a meal which boosts XP by 40%. I'm level 80 and, yeah, I may as well be a wood chipper.
  9. Not sure where else to share this but I think it looks cool.
  10. This thread bump got me excited for nothing! I haven't heard anything more about the DQ3 remake. Maybe they are waiting until after the launch of Dragon Quest Treasures? Not excited about that one atm. I still want DQX Offline to come to the West.
  11. One more chapter left and one more class left to find. I'm just not ready for this game to end. I've done a lot of side quests but will probably need to find a guide to help me with some. I've seen many areas which have been barely used yet, including one which just screams "max out first or die". I do wonder how many of these heroes are missable? I found a couple from just exploring, another one which appears as part of an optional side quest etc. For me this is easily the most addictive of the series (I've played them all apart from X). I do have some issues with the characters (and delivery of the voice acting) but the world and gameplay rises above that. Looking forward to seeing what MonolithSoft will pull off on better hardware. Amazing that at the end of the day this is running on what for many is an old handheld system.
  12. I enjoyed it but it was long. I'm not sure where I am in Chapter 6 as decided to do more side quests and hero quests (some are pretty good). I'm now level 72.
  13. I'm level 63 and have 662k in gold. I'm rich! All thanks to not feeling the need to spend any. This game is enormous, really opens up more after Chapter 4...then gets bigger still after Chapter 5. Don't skimp on the hero quests, some are really worthwhile and will take you to some of the nicest areas in the game. What to use my ether on though? Some is used on devices and upgrading gems but is there something I'm missing?
  14. Decent start for Xenoblade 3. It's a great game. Would be nice if we had an idea concerning digital sales.
  15. Just keep on doing that hero quest, listen to some conversations which you can discuss at canteens and camp sites and more things will open up. The best is yet to come. Enjoy!
  16. I haven't been hooked like this for years. I've played a silly amount of this game already. Was up late last night completing Chapter 5. Long (and I really do mean long) cut scenes and battles towards the end. Loved it. Nothing can beat Xenoblade 2 music though, still some great pieces though.
  17. Not going to spoil them story wise but a good way to get some of the best classes in the game. Some good story events too. Out of curiosity where are you up to?
  18. Remember that area you first found Mio and the rest of them in the Aetia Region? Place with the red grassy bit. Kill some of those Quadwings (look like owls) and you should get some after a while.
  19. I'm level 46 and really enjoying this. Still on Chapter 4 (it's a long one) but from what I've read there are not many in this one. Some tough bosses but going away for a while and doing side quests usually sorts that out. Some great classes arrive a while later into the game - plenty more to come too. The best in the series for combat systems etc. Oh MonolithSoft I love you. Xenoblade 2 music is better though.
  20. Ok, started the actual last episode. Why are they all selling their homes? The mind boggles.
  21. Oops, I was watching the wrong episode!
  22. I've put this on a bit ago. A little confusion where there is a Karl Kennedy with hair trying to get you to call in to win £5k. However, in the show he is bald and i didn't recognise him for a while. Guy Pearce has just arrived on the show. Oh, Harold Bishop is in it now...thought he was dead in the show. It's been a while.
  23. My copy has arrived from ShopTo! Finished Future Connected last night, just in time. My son insists on having a first go. Looking nice so far.
