yay! congrats to me! I finally accomplished one of my long running gaming goals!!
started Xenoblade X up again late august... finally beat it last night!!
or rather I should say, finished the final story chapter... there's still a ton of post game >_<
and I'm gonna do some of it; the game is definitely a fun one,
but it's also a mess... way too many systems in place, apparently there's a level cap and the only way to beat a lot of the harder enemies is to play the metagame, which after 100 hours I still don't understand >_<
but more than that, the thing I hate about this game is grinding. It's a modern game that does still require grinding.
either grinding for EXP cuz you keep dying and there's literally no strategy you can do to win other than going up 5 levels,
grinding for affinity because a lot of side missions are locked behind character affinity requirements,
or grinding for money becoz Skells are expensive and once you buy one you still need to buy weapons, except you cant coz you spent all your money on the skell to begin with!!
regardless, I think I only have one post game mission I can take on right now without grinding, so I think I'll just do that one and call it a game.
but yay! glad to finally get this one done! now I still need to play Tokyo Mirage Sessions while my Wii U is still out lol.
