stop biting my cape

Watching footage of the English dub and man, for being a tiny anime catgirl Nia has the most grown rear end woman voice. Same with Tora talking like/being a Nopon and having a normal man voice and Rex being tiny anime child with the voice of an adult Irishman. I actually really love how this juxtaposes with just how anime everything is.

Lotta people freaked out about the touching mini game in fates but not for the right reason (they freaked out it was taken out in the western version instead of freaking out about what the gently caress is even this)

So why did Amazon have the game for almost $20 cheaper than everyone else? Was it just my prime benefit because I thought they didn't give that on special and collector's editions. I had my order through Best Buy, but cancelled last night and order through Amazon saving $21 total.

No idea, because I checked without Prime and it's still discounted. Probably someone at Amazon screwing something up I guess.

Is there DLC for this game? Just searched it on Amazon and saw an "Expansion Pass" available for pre-order.

Amazon still shows as $60 for me, did they change it just now, or were you guys comparing the special edition vs the regular edition?

Special Edition is discounted ~20% for everyone. Regular edition is only discounted for Prime.

Any physical edition of a game gets the 20% discount, special or no.

Depends how close you are to a warehouse. Today would be the day to ship out if you're not close to it. In my situation, my orders usually ship out the night before release and it's in my mailbox or at my door 12 hours later.

Do we know enough yet about the stuff in the pass to say whether it'll be worthwhile? I don't really like supporting this kind of marketing but if I'm gonna pay it anyway, might as well get the freebies for my playthrough

thanks. so we got items, probably some lovely almost-radiant-level side quests, a character they probably actually already have done, a boss rush, and actual expansion content of unknown quantity & quality

I wonder if BotW's upcoming proper expansion content will be a good litmus for this

Given a lot of the XCX sidequests were really good, I wouldn't use the original Xenoblade's as a basis.

Yasunori Mitsuda is apparently the main music guy for this game, kinda weird that hasn't been played up more. He's the lead of the other composers, it seems. Xenogears is among some of his most beloved work.

Don't worry my friends. I will be your shield.

So Blades are gathered through a Gatcha? Granted, apparently Blade Crystals can be found or bought and we haven't heard anything about microtransactions for this, so I am presuming there won't be anything evil.

Hopefully the game is balanced around the Gatcha, and you won't be hosed if you were unlucky with which blades you got.

What? Do you mean an in-game gacha? Like you said, I've heard ZERO mention of anything approaching microtransactions, so I feel like you must be mistaken.
