Am I the only one who wishes Nintendo would make a new toy gun version of the NES Zapper and/or the Super Scope?

Just finished Xenoblade 2 again... remember why I had such mixed feelings the first time. So boring for the first 3/4 or so. And the last 1/4 is good, but so not worth it. The gatcha mechanics also kind of drag it down, although at least you don't have to pay for rare blades or anything.

For anyone who has played it, is Torna worth it if I felt that way about the main game?

Depends on what elements you disliked about the first 3/4 of the base game.

Torna improves the combat, but if the core gameplay is just not to your liking, it won't change your mind.



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

I just didn't think the story was that interesting. There main story with Torna, Rex, and Pyra etc was good, but the background political squables between the nations were meh. Gets much more interesting when *spoilers* you get to the world tree and all the other shit takes a back seat. The game was also kind of all over the place with tons of different systems. Upgrading characters, blades, shops, regions, merc missions, salvaging etc etc. When I have too many sidequests available, unless its structured particular well as in Xenoblade X or BOTW, I just kind of don't want to do any of them. 

So, I think a solid overall game could be built on the structure, just don't want to put in 20-30 hours for something that may or may not happen.

Torna still has a lot of sidequests and systems so if you really didn't like that, it probably won't be your thing.

Ok, so Monolith Soft has had a hand in Xenoblade, and Zelda, what would be another good Nintendo IP for them to try their hands with?

Technically correct, but I think calling Xenoblade a Nintendo franchise is odd in this context. It wasn't really a Nintendo series they jumped into, they were the driving force from the begining. And it's a spiritual successor to other work they've done.

I'd be fine with them focussing on their own stuff. If they really HAD to build on an established IP I would say Golden Sun. It's the most traditional RPG I can think of in Nintendo's stable, and that seems to be where they're best.

They've also supported development on Smash Bros, Pikmin, Animal Crossing, and Splatoon.
