I platinum'ed Ratchet and Clank 1 HD for the PS3. Really fun game. Smooth for a platformer that was only a console generation after the clunky N64 platformers I grew up on. I loved destroying things and then having a the bolts (in-game money) fly at you to collect them. Looking forward to playing more of them Nod

Just beat Xenoblade Chronicles 2 for the Nintendo Switch after 192ish hours Lurking/sketchy

Nothing matched the first 1/3rd or 1/2 of Xenoblade 1 or however long a certain character lasted in the story, but it built towards a proper climax rather than climaxing too early in XB1 and then rolling downhill from there. I think there was too much goofy comedy, especially the first few villains, that stuff should've been left on the side and keep the main story as serious as they could.

I thought the battle system of Xenoblade 1 eventually collapsed in on itself, Xenoblade 2 held up the entire time. I think it still could've been dumbed down more or a few systems collapsed downwards, there were way too much juggling of tiny percentages of each statistic in different menus. They do introduce it to you in a slow enough fashion that it's easy to learn, though.

WAIFUS, GUYS

Also Square-Enix (Xenogears) and Bamco (Xenosaga) were mentioned in the end-credits. The Kingdom Hearts guy designed the villains (which is obvious now that I look at it). They also made reference to a certain something from both games that more or less connects all of them together.

Probably the biggest flaw of the game was that there were way too many obvious quality-of-life mechanics and menus that were left out at the start. There's still some missing (there's no auto-save).

Game was pretty cool overall. I'm def gonna play the New Game + for some of the extra features. I also want to replay Xenoblade 1, Xenogears, want to play Xenosaga for the first time just to see if there's any more reference to them fitting together.
