Xenoblade Chronicles X is really fun and interesting so far, honestly. It’s kinda like they took the mechanics from the original game and made a completely different genre of game with them. It’s practically closer to an MMO than a standard single player JRPG.

The tone of the game is sort of bipolar; most of the time it’s “humanity is on the brink of extinction”, then suddenly there’s 5 minutes of horribly written food jokes about Tatsu the nopon. The original game did the same thing to be sure, but it somehow seemed to have more of a balance.
