Xenoblade Chronciles 2 ! The story, soundtrack and combat system are AMAZING

Got any examples for the soundtrack? I love videogame music and the soundtrack of a game is a huge selling point to me

Since they've already linked some of the other tracks I'd like to focus on the tracks that change depending on what's going on in the world, these two tracks can be heard in the same area depending if it's daytime or nighttime and they obviously share similarities, yet they both have a distinct feeling and depending on your experience they can be really impactful: for instance you might walk through this area for the first time only during daytime and make it to the next one, only to play another 2/3 hours and then  going back to the same area at night and finding a brand new track that has ties to what you heard before.

And don't get me started on the tracks that have singing, by far my favourites thus far (I'm "only" 45 hours in), if you wan't a glimpse of it try listening without watching the Story Trailer for the game (the spoilers are only for the first 30ish hours of the game but still you really don't want to spoil this amazing story)

Depends if you like your games like final fantasy or more western i would say?

Xenoblade setting is closer to Phantasy Star than Final Fantasy traditionally. Tho I would say they are pretty unique as well as they mainly (not X) take place on massive Titans. 2 in 1 and multiple in 2. In 2 they act like big islands and a little bit Skies of Arcadia in that regard.



I suggest you Xenoblade chronicles 2. I'm 35 hours in and i'm not even at half game. It's huge and wonderful. Plus i can see the price of skyrim being cut pretty soon becuase it's available pratically everywhere so no one will decide to pick it up full price when it's available for much less on a lot of different platforms, but this is only my opinion.



Xenoblade Chronicles 2, no question

Xenoblade 2. Massive imaginative COLORFUL worlds. Great combat and a very well told story. Monolith are the ones that designed the world of BotW.

Nope nope nope nope 


I agreed in the first 2 hours of the game but now nahhhhh

 

OP: Get Xenoblade 2 because it's something you can only get on Switch, plus when it really gets going I think it's the most pure fun you can have on the system.

Did you finish the game?

Two field themes, a town theme, and a situational battle theme.

That first field theme seemed a little too over the top for, well, a field theme... not saying it's a bad song, but I think it'd fit better somewhere else. Second field theme is great, LOVE the town theme, reminds me of something from Runescape (And I LOVE the music in Runescape, lol), the battle theme actually surprised me, at first I thought it seemed a little too calm, but then it kicks in, and yeah... I'm sold on it, totally dig it! :o

If y'all for epic music, then it's XC2 without hesitation, good story and great worlds exploration there too !

Are you sure? Skyrim has some Lord of the Rings-esque music.  Very engaging. Its good to hear that it has a good soundtrack though.

What do you think?

What chapter now? In Xenoblade 1, you need to play at least 45 hours to see the minor plot twist and when you are in 80% of the game, you will get the major one
