What can I say, sometimes my mind thinks up the most random things...

At least it wasn't food related.

Also, not gonna lie. I went through the effort of taking the U and flipping it upside down... without noticing I could've used the actual n in Revenge.

Eh, it's fine. Much funnier that way. XD

I wonder if I'll be getting more into Pokemon as it gets more and more cultural inspiration. I do love a good bit of social historiography.

As much as I keep bringing/joking up Lechonk and Spanish Chorizo, and its reference to the Black Iberian Pig, there's also one of the other reveals today: Smoliv.

Smoliv

Spain is a major producer of olive oil, after all.

Which means it's likely that any future Mediterranean based regions will include the little guy in their local dexes.

People be insisting Twilit is into tsuderes while Shrimpy be posting Yanderes willy nilly.

I'm just assuming everyone's okay with this?

If they're fine with it, they're fine with it. Not like I have any high ground to stand on.😎

and basically everything is a hazard with insane stun

Only for the player though!

I heard MK64's AI cheats, and then I saw a video that showed that, yes, it does. While the AI is on 90% of the visible screen, it has no advantages, yet as it approaches the horizon beyond which it cannot be seen, things get rigged. Falling off the sides of the track cuts out the lengthy Lakitu recovery animation, getting hit by something causes barely phases it, and on the Toad's Turnpike circuit, the traffic the player has to dodge simply doesn't exist for the AI for a massive advantage. It also gets max speed exceeding that provided while under the effects of a Star.

Oh yes, i experienced this. You could be playing the game perfectly but the moment you fuck up, whoever was in second place just activates the hyperdrive and it becomes pretty much impossible to catch up unless you get really lucky with items.

She ran so fast, she activated the Speed Force and got the game early.

Oh yeah, the Olivemon.

It does feel like one of those early slime monster mobs to me.

Meanwhile, nobody here is talking about the likely Pikaclone, which I think says something.

"That's why I pretended to be you and get you banned from Japan Barry, to get Xenoblade early"

Funnily enough my first Pokemon was X and Y which is pretty much where the culture inspirations really started to kick in for Pokemon. I've tried the older games but they've never been able to grab me as much.

Now if they did an Andes style game then I'm committed.

Ah, always a treat to hear when mowing down the mobs, heh.

Admittedly, can't find if it's as woven into the regional inspiration as the other two are.

There is a little bit of cultural inspiration from gen 5 as well, being based on the New York area, with things like Watchog's yellow patterning being designed after safety vests of road workers and crossing guards, Pidove being based on the pigeon ubiquitous to the area, Swanna based on the swans that were introduced to region for a long time (as well as the ugly duckling story), Basculine after the wild bass in the area, the Timbur line being inspired by the construction workers of New York, Scraggy line after hip-hop/punk aesthetics, Trubbish after the tradition of garbage bags curbside piles in New York, Braviary being the bald eagle pokemon, and the Pawniard line perhaps a reference to the practice of chess playing in public parks. There were some that took inspiration from other parts of America as well, like the Elgyem line being based on the aliens made famous in Area 51, Vanillish's line a nod to the invention of the ice cream cone in St. Louis world's fair, Bouffalant the bison pokemon, the Cottonee line after Cotton the staple crop of the USA's south back in the day, Maractus being based on the prickly pear cactus common in the Americas. There is also some based on Central and South America as well, most notably Sigiliyph based on the Nazca lines, Cincinno being the chinchilla pokemon, Galvantual the tarantula pokemon, and Heatmor the anteater pokemon. Admittedly there are a lot of other cultural references from elsewhere, like the box legendarily referencing the yin-yang, the trio being a reference to the three musketeers (with Keldo as their D'Artagnan), and the elemental monkeys as the three wise monkeys etc.

Also @Saint Rubenio congrats on becoming a wageslave!

Thanks, I guess. It's nowhere near bad enough to be classified as slavery yet.

I recently played Mario: Superstar Baseball (my brother wanted to) and it actually wasn't too bad. I mean, i know it's a bit basic, but that's fine. We were doing the challenge mode and bugs were plenty, but it was still fun enough.

Xenoblade 3 Dev Blog Vol 4

unknown.png?width=768&height=432

Five Arts per Class. Noah's Swordfighter Class contains (going from top to bottom)

  • Ground Beat
  • Sword Strike
  • Thrust Edge
  • Air Slash 
  • Shadow Eye

Btw, Dex and Agility are separate stats, as it should.

In additon, you can equip up to three Master Arts, a.k.a Arts you get from other classes

unknown.png?width=768&height=432

At least one of these Arts is from Taion's Tactician class.

That third slot says it unlocks at Lv.40 but there's both Lv.22 footage where he has that third slot and Lv.42 footage where he doesn't. So maybe that's Class level instead. To compare, each Class in Xenoblade X had 10 levels but they got progressively more time consuming to reach as you went up the ladder.

Speaking of Arts, we now have direct confirmation that yes indeed, Circle Arts recharge through time while Diamond Arts recharge through hit

In addition, Fusion Arts allow you to use two Arts at the same time, combing the Arts of your class and the Arts of another

So let's break down your total options here:

  • Three Arts+three Master Arts+Talent Art=9 Arts
  • Three Fusion Arts
  • Ouroboros has three additional Arts at least exclusive to it.

That's 15 Arts available to you, which is more than the previous games allowed. And they still haven't shown mid-battle switching.

There's another clip that's basically confirming Art canceling. But we knew that easily so i ain't posting it. I am gonna post Sena's Talent Art tho

Inflicts Launch btw.

Air Slash and Shadow Eye. Why, Monolith? Why do they insist on having arts that operate like Shulks?

More options is always good! I like the sound of this so far!

Could be when it was unlocked?

Missed this but what does the Buff/Debuff text tell us? (Third from the bottom on the bottom right hand side.)

Edit: not to mention (reaction) right below that.

Long-running franchises develop name continuities, plain and simple. Dragon Quest keeps its healing magic consistently called Heal-Midheal-Fullheal, Fire Emblem uses Bronze-Iron-Steel-Killer-Silver-Brave for much of it physical weaponry.

Name continuities aren't anything new to Xenoblade, XCX brought back Back Slash, Slit Edge, Cool Off, Blossom Dance, and Wild Down; while Air Slash was a scrapped Art with remnant VA clips. XC2 even has trace amounts of name continuity with XCX, as I recall some common fire Blades get Thermal Payload as a Special.

As for Shulk-like arts, an offense-oriented character who relies on positioning and not having aggro directed at them is merely a gameplay archetype Xenoblade has developed. Shulk just so happened to be the first, and Elma and Aegis Blade!Rex have followed in this, so it seems to be the quintessential Xenoblade MC combat role.
