Alvis you don't need to pose for literally every camera shot, take it down a notch.

Except for the usual JRPG diversions I really enjoy the (still ongoing) build up Xenoblade has. It manages to stack reveal on top of reveal for quite some time and never reach a point where it feels too much.

The amount of passenger space on that ship seems somewhat small.

I'm not sure why they even bothered with that entire rigmarole with Melia but JRPGs do seem to occasionally get obsessed with writing their characters into a complicated social structure only to have to write them out of it shortly afterwards so they can help kill god or whatever. Also wow Sharla maybe meet Fiora first before starting to pull on a side of the triangle.

Episode 24: Reyn is rocking the Bowser look, I see.

Episode 25: Okay, I think I'm starting to see how this is related to Xenogears. But seriously, how did the assassin lady get in here? Did she have to go past the big door?
"State your name and purpose."
"Tyrea of the Bionicle, here to kill Princess Melia."
"Okay cool, go right ahead"

My guess is she had to take the same route the party did due to Reyn, and had been waiting there off to the side for possibly hours. Seems to me that you plan this shit out in advance rather than winging it off the cuff.

I have finally caught up on this thread. I am enjoying this game, even if there are still a few clunky sections (like in a few cases where you leave the guest room(?) in Alcamoth to go to the throne room/somewhere else, then immediately go back to the guest room 5 minutes later to do a different cutscene). Basically, it boils down to weird pacing issues.

Still, I do feel bad for Sharla. I don't think I've ever seen a white mage character get that screwed over with their combat options like she has.

Alvis is just off screen, desperately posing to try and get the team back on track.

"Melia Antiqua, DEA agent" was not the direction I expected her character to go after properly joining the party, but here we are.

There's those JRPG diversions we've been missing.

I find it very troubling that the gap between jungle and snow-covered mountains is literally a two foot walk.

Look, I'm not sure what causes biomes when you live on the corpse of a titan. Are you?

"Ah, Shulk, thank you for... finally... joining me at the mountains. Now we should proceed to... wait where are you going?"

Sure, just squoosh Lupa down a crack underneath the sarcophagus. Nopon don't have bones, right?

I think I promised this in the video too.

I definitely do not like our snow area being on a permanent 60 degree incline for most of the area, where even the slightest jump can result in you taking 1000 fall damage. At least funky ice physics seems to be relegated to one single stretch of the mountain and not all over the place.

It should have been optionally all over the place, use Reyn's weapon as a sled and pile everyone in.
