My Amazon package was delayed to next week, boooo. But I was starting back into XC2 a bit, not sure if replaying both simultaneously is a mistake

It’s a mistake

It will make xc1 touch ups look unimpressive and confuse the combat

I tried to play xc1 some years ago but it was just too dated for the aesthetic

I got 100 Gs to start for beating XC2

I never played the first so nobody spoil anything

I'll say this.... XC is less anime and more real than XC2. The pure fantasy of XC2 is better, but I'd say XC has a better overall story. It's a close call though.


Not a spoiler, but a suggestion - once you beat XC go back and watch the XC2 final 2-3 cinematics again, just saying....

Kind of what i expect. Im rarely surprised, but my mind was blown when i went beneath the clouds in xc2. You don’t expect that playing a jrpg

It takes some practice but it’s a lot of fun when you get the hang of it.

The combat is better than Xenoblade 2, but it would be so much better if it dropped the gimmicks.

I just learned a new ability for the Monado that helps me damage a new enemy type. The enemies can't be damaged until I cast an ability that dispells their shield, but they'll just re-cast their shield before you can build up your monado meter thing making it pointless.

I'm still learning, but like the second game, every boss fight feels like a DPS check because their ability to do damage far outstrips your ability to heal.

Beat it last night. I enjoyed it quite a bit. I don't know if I think it's one of the greatest JRPGs of all time, but the story was entertaining (if a bit nonsensical). There were about 3 or 4 very frustrating boss fights. Riki is my favorite JRPG party member.

It left me hungry for more Xeno games. I am trying to decide between Chronicles X on the Wii U or Xenoblade 2 on the Switch. I'd only previously played Torna.

Xenoblade 2 on the switch as it is a much closer tie-in to this game, is on the switch, and is a more well rounded game than X was. X was probably my last favorite xeno game to date: and that includes the saga series

I got about halfway through X and "gave up." I don't think I've ever played a game that made itself so hard to like.

With a lot of quality of live improvements, a switch port would be solid.

This.

I enjoyed X the least out of the 3, but I do think it had some unique charms.
