Don't know if you've been playing New Game + runs of Xenobalde 2 since your first playthrough (I've done so many myself ) but I did a compleatly fresh run last time and with all the extra DLC redeemed, custom difficulty, more rate blades to pull, quality of live changes and it felt sooooo much better than my first playthrough in 2017, a lot of the fluff was erased and things like extra blade / side quests mixed up the story flow more than I was expecting.

I'd say it's well worth a go if you where on the edge like I was

I've landed it twice, and both times I panicked and didn't lift the stylus off the screen quickly enough and it swam away

I'm surprised that Temple of the Ocean King isn't as terrible as I thought. It's a little stupid to constantly go back but with each new weapon, I can reay cut the time in the earlier levels!

Always great to see Xenobalde 2 being played again by anyone on BL such a great game!

What’s it like playing Torna first versus the other way around?
I’ve only gone through it twice but always played it after so I’m curious to feel if the build up is different or possibly better?

I'm going to try for completion, it's just such a strong urge with Zelda games. I did get the slate and started collecting frog symbols, so at least I don't have to navigate that awful fog patch anymore.

Man I really want to properly get into Xenoblade so I'd be able to appreciate a game like that. I'd like to get caught up before XBC3 comes out but I don't really see it happening. It's been so long I will have to completely start over XBC2. I never played XBC1 either, I kinda think I should just do it "properly" this time and beat the Switch version of that before I go back to XBC2? I still have to get that though, too many games and not enough money/time. If there was a Xenoblade Warriors I sure hope KOS-MOS makes it in though, that would definitely give me some more motivation to make it happen! Hell, she was part of the reason I jumped straight into XBC2 to begin with haha.

They kinda look the same age just with new outfits to me but guess we''l find out. Yeah I actually prefer Female Byleth getting the attention anyway. It seems like a lot of people don't like her and say her outfit is stupid but I don't agree lol. Yeah that was how it worked in FEW, it just seems weird to do it like that for what I assume is the main character. Since the actual main characters of FEW were the twins and it let you pick which gender you wanted to start out as.

Yeah it seems I was much closer to the end of RF4 than I thought I was. Too bad I still haven't been able to successfully confess to someone. I hear the postgame story arc is reliant on RNG to even start it as well so I'm not sure how much more I'll get to experience before RF5 comes out. I hear RF5 doesn't really do those RNG events anymore thankfully.

Btw do you have a Discord? I thought we could add each other on it. If you don't I guess Steam is fine since we already have each other added there. I can't remember the last time we talked on there, it's probably been nearly 10 years.

I kinda think they should make a Hyrule Warriors 3 on the next console as well and have it back to being the whole series again instead of just BotW. I think there's still some some things that can be done with it, Vaati and Four Sword Link immediately stand out as glaring omissions to me. Although perhaps moving onto another series would be for the best. Mario Warriors? Pokemon Warriors? Smash Bros. Warriors? So much potential there!

Yeah I like the Golden Route idea too actually. I just wonder if there's going to be a timeskip again, since those versions of the characters are my favorite for pretty much all of them. Though it looks like everyone is getting a new outfit anyway, so that will be cool to see regardless! Yeah I really feel like it will just be like 3H where you teach the students and the movesets are just based on whatever class you mold them into. So that would be a good way to get most of the characters in without making so many unique movesets. I just wonder why there's focus on Female Byleth and Male Byleth isn't even on the box art. I'm sure he will be a costume unlocked later but it's strange to not even be able to choose him at the start. At least I assume that's the case.

Yeah the Switch has definitely been a new low for Pokemon Arceus aside. I was probably stupid for even buying BD/SP because I knew it would be underwhelming but oh well it still has some nostalgia appeal I guess lol. I would definitely recommend some fan hacks since I've dabbled in them recently myself, it seems like the only way Pokemon will ever realize its true potential. Especially for difficulty since yeah I don't know why they won't add something like BW2's Challenge Mode again. I definitely agree that many aspects of Arceus' battle system can be super annoying so yeah its not really a perfect way to do things... A mix of Arceus' exploration and real-time catching with the classic battle system would be the best case scenario for Gen 9.

Yeah sometimes I feel like I'm the only one excited for Three Hopes since it seems like I see nothing other than negativity about it, so it's cool you are too lol. A year ago I was so hesitant about getting Hyrule Warriors since I was worried it would be too repetitive and shallow but a year later I've played and loved all 3 of the Nintendo Warriors games and haven't gotten burned out at all, so definitely glad I went for it! I still think we should get a proper FEW 2 so Elibe and Tellius can be represented, but Three Houses definitely has the best cast of characters and a lot of them would've never made it in a such game (I really want Lysithea, Marianne and Hilda for example, and we probably would've only gotten one of those at best) so it's a nice trade-off. Although apparently the director said Ike and Roy would be in the next game, so maybe it's still possible they'll be in Three Hopes as a non-canon thing...? I doubt it but guess we'll see.

And yeah super excited about RF5! Honestly I doubt I'll even finish RF4 in time though so I might just have to finish it some time after RF5 as stupid as that would be though lol. I guess it's no big deal though, since RF5 is pretty much the game I wanted from it in the first place, it being full 3D and all. Also same-sex marriage since I like to play as the female and still romance the girls, so the announcement that the localization was adding it was such a awesome surprise for me.

Yeah I hope Scarlet/Violet uses this same kind of exploration and real-time catching again and improves on some of it. Though I won't get my hopes up too high on that front, Pokemon loves to take one step forward and two steps back... And of course the graphics look to have some serious issues again. I can't believe it's even releasing this year, they seem to be rushing these out way too fast and not giving them the polish they deserve.

Yeah I feel two ways about the battle system. I guess it was kinda cool that Pokemon way below your level can still up a decent fight, the baby difficulty has been one of biggest problems with the series so that's a welcome change. Too bad there was only a handful of trainer battles even in the game though... I hope it gets some good DLC later, the update we got was pretty underwhelming. Although I suppose if it got DLC then Scarlet and Violet's seemingly rushed development would be even more questionable...
It's an old theme, but it checks out.
