Xenoblade Chronicles 2 – PART 42 – pOisOn!!
I drop in on the Mor Ardain/Uraya summit because Mòrag has gotten news that Bana is planning an attack. We: gather clues; determine that Tirkin are attempting to poison the food; everyone ignores the giant, rattling crate; Rex shouts the word “Poison” really weird; and Bana manages to kill Niall in a last, desperate shot.
Not through any merit of his own, mind you… but because Niall is dumb.
Xenoblade Chronicles – PART 19 – The Legendary Heropon
I make my way to Frontier Village, the home of the Nopon, in pursuit of a way to the Bionis’ head. After Shulk and crew learn more about Melia and her reasons for being in Makna Forest, they get introduced to the year’s Legendary Heropon, Riki!
TLoZ: Breath of the Wild – PART 49 – Trial of the Sword: Final (Part 1)
I begin the Final Trial of the Sword late at night and I’m slightly delirious. I do not like the Bone Zone™.
Xenoblade Chronicles 2 – PART 41 – Wounds
In this cutscene-heavy episode, Amalthus holds a summit between the leaders of Mor Ardain and Uraya to try and stave off open war. Afterwards, Nia and Mythra put the “fun” into Fan la Norne’s funeral.
Xenoblade Chronicles – PART 18 – Telepathy Vs. Precognition
Shulk and crew encounter the unconscious Melia. When Shulk heads off on his own to find a cure, he meets Alvis and just… falls in love. Then he gets beaten up by some mutant, telepathic birds and unlocks a new Monado Art, Purge.
TLoZ: Breath of the Wild – PART 48 – Trial of the Sword: Middle
I continue on! with the Trials of the Sword through the new areas of bottomless pits + updrafts, dark, and robot hell. The dark levels particularly freak me out and I apparently had a near-on panic attack while fighting the Hinox.
Xenoblade Chronicles 2 – PART 40 – Temperantia
I think this is about when I started really figuring out Chain Attacks… and still nearly lose to Jimmy because spike effects are the true enemy.
Afterwards, I head to Temperantia to stop Jin and get the last party member, Zeke, on the team. I give him Praxis and get him one of my favorite Blades, Adenine.
Xenoblade Chronicles – PART 17 – Welcome to the Forest
After helping to rebuild Colony 6 a little, I return to Satorl Marsh to climb up the Sororal Statues because the elevator doesn’t work and the Coming-of-Age ceremony was completely pointless. Entering Makna Forest afterwards, we get a brief introduction to our next party member, Melia.
TLoZ: Breath of the Wild – PART 47 – Trial of the Sword: Beginner
Having saved directly in front of the Deku Tree, the game traps me in both of the cutscenes for the Trial of the Sword DLC.
In this episode, I do the Beginner level of the Trials, fail once, and make a Moblin dance (re: set it on fire and play jaunty music while it flails around) during the second.
Xenoblade Chronicles 2 – PART 39 – Praetor Amalthus
Completely dominated by cutscenes, this episode provides: me giggling like an idiot at Sheba and her flying bathtub, a discussion on the effects of war and the ease to direct your anger at closer targets, Rex seeing similarities between Amalthus and Malos via a strange television effect, edgelord Jin trying to incite war between Mor Ardain and Uraya by commandeering a Titan weapon, and numerous discussions about the past.
