Xenoblade Chronicles 2: Introduction and History - The existence of Xenoblade Chronicles 2 -- and the fact that it's a high-profile title in Nintendo's Switch lineup -- is nothing short of remarkable. How did we get here?
Xenoblade Chronicles 2: Combat Complexity Without Chaos - Xenoblade Chronicles 2's combat has a lot of complexity and depth to it -- but it gradually introduces its concepts over time rather than overwhelming the player all at once. Let's take a closer look at these mechanics.
Xenoblade Chronicles 2: Violence Doesn’t Solve Everything - Xenoblade Chronicles 2's progression isn't just about fighting stronger and stronger enemies. The game's recruitable Blades provide a variety of passive non-combat skills and even their own unique questlines to follow. Let's explore!
Xenoblade Chronicles 2: A Titanic World - Xenoblade Chronicles has an incredibly imaginative world floating among the clouds... and a real sense that both you and the things you do in it really matter.
Xenoblade Chronicles 2: Narrative, Themes and Characterisation - The Xeno series as a whole has never shied away from challenging themes... and more recent installments have positioned you and the main cast as just one part of a much larger whole.
Xenoblade Chronicles 2: Bringing the “Niche” to the “Mainstream” - Xenoblade Chronicles 2's English script had some quite substantial changes from the Japanese original. Rather than this being "censorship", however, it represents an honest attempt to bridge the gap between niche-interest and mainstream audiences.

Seven Arbitrarily Chosen Things You’re Missing Out On If You’ve Been Operating Under the Mistaken Belief that JRPGs are “Dead” - It seems that every time we get a new Dragon Quest, Final Fantasy or Persona release, we have the same old “we’re having a JRPG renaissance!” discussion. Well, dear reader, with my coverage of Death End Re;Quest on the horizon at the time of writing and plenty more RPGs in our shared futures, I’m here … Continue reading Seven Arbitrarily Chosen Things You’re Missing Out On If You’ve Been Operating Under the Mistaken Belief that JRPGs are “Dead”

Waifu Wednesday: Mòrag and Brighid - Xenoblade Chronicles 2’s main cast runs the gamut from spunky, optimistic youths to a few rather more reserved characters. Mòrag and her Blade Brighid (Meleph and Kagutsuchi in the Japanese original) fall into this latter category, both offering their own distinctive take on being the “detached voice of reason” in most situations. Both of them … Continue reading Waifu Wednesday: Mòrag and Brighid
Waifu Wednesday: Poppi - One of Xenoblade Chronicles 2’s best characters is Poppi (aka Hana in the Japanese voice track), the artificial Blade created by the Nopon Tora as an attempt to finish the work his dadapon and grampypon started. Always endearing, surprisingly empathetic and understanding to her friends and companions, highly capable in a variety of situations and … Continue reading Waifu Wednesday: Poppi
Waifu Wednesday: Nia - Xenoblade Chronicles 2 is a game practically overflowing with top-tier waifus, so it’s almost impossible to know where to start celebrating them. While it might seem obvious to immediately focus on leading ladies Pyra and Mythra (aka Homura and Hikari in the Japanese version) these characters are, in many ways, “the face of Xenoblade Chronicles 2” … Continue reading Waifu Wednesday: Nia
