Xenoblade Chronicles and Changing Destiny

Destiny is the second main theme of Xenoblade Chronicles 3D. It starts with the idea of using the Monado to change fate because it is the only weapon that can fight the Mechon to Shulk using the Monado to see the future. Eventually the idea of changing destiny goes to changing the fate of the world. This game is really ambitious when it comes to the story which is why I love it! For this please do not read if you have not played or finished the game as this will involve the crazy twists at the end that really shake up the story and universe! 

Shulk and the Monado

Shulk is the only character that can wield the Monado properly as most people end up getting hurt by the weapon. Shulk also gains special abilities from the Monado such as visions. At first it seems like they cannot do much as his vision that Fiona will be killed still ends up to her death.

But, once he starts talking to people and being open about his visions, he is really able to change the future. One moment I remember is when he sees a vision that Sharla will die trying to save her brother Juju from a Mechon. He is able to stop the future by warning Sharla and Juju is saved.

The gameplay also allows you to change the future. Shulk can see what will happen in battle and you can tell a character how to avoid the attack or stop it yourself with the Monado. For example, if you see that a character will take enough damage to kill them, either tell them to put a shield up or use a Monado art and they will survive the attack and take less damage.

World

The world was actually designed to fight each other due to Zanza, the creator of this world. It seems like the people of Bionis and Mechnois can never get along, but he wanted that. Zanza wanted power and to do that he decided to destroy Mechonis. He brought the Monado to earth so that someone would be foolish to pick it up. Zanza needs power because without destruction, he will cease to exist. The people of Bionis give him energy when they die.

When someone did, Zanza took over their body and started fighting Mechonis. Egil, the leader of the Mechonis revolution, witnessed this destruction he vowed to destroy Bionis to kill Zanza. Egil at the end sacrified himself to protect Bionis from Zanza and the Mechon started helping Bionis defend against Zanza.

The fate of the High Entia were also changed. High Entia had this rule where they wanted a Homs and High Entia to produce children so they would be more like Homs. At first that seemed really weird, but they were trying to change their fate. Zanza created them so that they would turn into monsters called Telethia who would kill the people of Bionis for Zanza when he commanded them to. Melia and the other half High Entia were able to avoid becoming Telethia and were able to live a normal life though they mourned the loss of their families.

Creator and Destiny

Zanza and Meyneth, the creator of Mechonis, have two different visions of the world they created. Zanza wants the world to fuel him. He enjoys conflict and destruction because it gives him power. Meyneth only wants the people to have a happy future where they can decided their own destinies.

This world was created by Zanza (which is where the ending just really changes the story). So the world was created as a computer program to look at how universes are made and evolve. Zanza, or Klaus as he was known, decided to execute the world before it was fully tested. That led to the destruction of our world and the beginning of Bionis and Mechonis. The Monado has power in this world because it is the computer that build this world.

Ending and Lessons Learned

When Zanza destroys the universe, Shulk and his friends fight him. Shulk is able to create his own Monado and can still see the future. He is able to defeat Zanza by seeing the future. After that he gets to decide the fate of the universe. He decides to let the people decide their future and the people of Bionis and Mechonis live in harmony on Colony 6.

This game teaches us that destiny and fate can be changed. We are not stuck on one path if our future is not how we envisioned it to be. Instead we can create our own future with persistence. Shulk tried everything he could to change the future over an over 100 hour story and he was able to change it and create his own future. So whenever you feel stuck or like your future isn’t going the way you want it to, know that the future belongs to you.

Xenoblade Chronicles and Perseverance: Tough Bosses

Xenoblade Chronicles 3D has to be the hardest game I have ever played. I had to retry the entire game 3 times in order to get grinding and quests right. The first time I made way too many mistakes and ended up being very underleveled for all boss fights. I decided to retry again a couple years later, but loss\t interest. The third time I decided to try again, I had forgotten everything about the game so I decided to begin a fresh save. Now I am finally at the final boss. I actually managed to do pretty well with this game except for two bosses which taught me about patience and strategy.

Gadolt

This was the first boss that I ran into major problems with. Usually after doing most of the side quests, I could easily take a boss down, but not this one. He is also apparently one of the hardest bosses in the game which is how I got the achievement Phoenix for 50 game overs total (a good chunk was from him and also Metal Face).

The first thing I did was grind by doing all side quests to try to get closer to his level. That helped me a lot, but he still was hard. He’s a hard enough boss with his deadly attacks (I can still remember hearing “This shot will take you down” before he basically killed most of my party). So I looked on YouTube and also at posts by others who were stuck on the fight.

After trying to use different party members, I believe I won using either Shulk or Melia with Reyn and Sharla. Sharla healed everyone while I took out the guardians and eventually just kept knocking Gadolt out until the fight was over.

Disciple One

This one had me wanting to quit the game. She is known to be the hardest boss in this game. She summons enemies that grant her 100% defense against physical attack unless you take most of them down. On top of that she has powerful attacks and also she is a large boss in a small area surrounded by toxic ether. She can push your party members and you into the toxic ether just by moving around. I died here more than Gadolt and was very annoyed by hearing “You will pay for your insolence” several times during this fight.

Looking up help for this one was actually funny. It would go between helpful advice to hearing that people just quit the game at this point because of how tough she is. I just grinded until she was not in the yellow (yellow means that the boss is slightly harder because your party is too low).

Then, I just kept trying different party combinations. I eventually just used Melia, Riki, and Sharla because two of those mostly attacked using ether instead of physical attacks. It was basically luck that got me to win because I used chain attacks to take her down. If I wasn’t lucky she would take Melia out which would cause me to lose the battle fairly quickly.

Lessons Learned

I learned that with patience, strategy, and trying multiple times, I can do anything! I really learned about patience when I needed to wait a while to do quests and grind before I could fight a boss. I also learned strategy with choosing the right party that went could help each other out, making sure they had the right equipment with gems to increase certain stats, and making sure they had the right Arts selected. After I tried multiple strategies I would eventually defeat any boss.

I am currently stuck on the final boss who has three phases, but I managed to get through the first phase. I am using what I have learned to defeat the final boss!

Importance of Bonds in Xenoblade Chronicles

I am currently working through Xenoblade Chronicles 3D on my Nintendo 3DS. I have now played 99 and a half hours and I still need to complete the main story. This game is long! While playing I have come across two main theme I wanted to write about. The first being about love and relationships and the second one I will write later once I have finished the game. The second theme requires more story in order to discuss it properly. Warning: Full spoilers up until the Gadolt boss battle where I stopped.

Party Relationship

The standard for any RPG is usually some form of party. This game has a special mechanic were the more you sync up with your party with attacks, the more a link for fills up. Once this link fills up, you can do chain attacks. You also need to encourage your teammates in battle when they get discouraged. During battle, team mates will cheer each other on like “We can definitely do this”. Battle also encourages skill links which create special effects during battle such as an Agility buff when the battle begins with higher level enemies.

There’s also Heart-to-Hearts which unlock special cut scenes from a character’s affinity link. Affinity links are basically how much they get along which increases as they battle together.

In terms, of story the party generally bonds as the story progresses. You see Reyn and Shulk, the first main party, deepen their friendship as they work to save Bionis. Sharla, a woman who joins when you meet Colony 6, and Reyn get closer along the story as well. Reyn clearly likes Sharla and tries to bond with her which she does find adorable.

Family Bonds

Family is also an important part of Xenoblade. Dunban and Fiora are brother and sister who look after each other. Fiora nurses Dunban back to health after he injures himself wielding the Monado and he looks after her when she gets a Mechonis body and needs to stay hydrated.

Melia has a brother named Kallian and a father named Emperor Sorean. Melia is very close with her family. She loves her father and her brother looks after her. When Sorean dies, Melia is devastated. She is made the new leader of the High Entia, but asks her brother to stand in for her while she accompanies Shulk to fight the Mechon.

A bond that has become tense over time is Miqol and Egil. Miqol is the father of Egil. Egil is, at the moment, responsible for the tension between the Homs and Machina. He has led the Mechonis to fight and kill the Homs. Miqol does not want the Homs to die over past history and is currently tell Shulk to kill Egil. We’ll see if this changes over time.

Community Bonds

During any time in the game, you can look at the Affinity Chart which shows your relationship to the different communities in Xenoblade Chronicles. My highest community is Central Bionis which is at 3 stars. This is where the Nopon live.

During Xenoblade you come across different communities. These can be other Homs communities like Colony 6 or other races such as Nopon (basically sentient fluffy creatures), High Entia (similar to elves in intelligence and life span), and Machina (the machine people). Some of these are even added to your party.

Nopon can seem annoying at first, but Riki is kind and determined to help his friends. His moves can even help friends like healing. Melia is a High Entia. At first, they seem like they only care about themselves, but they do decided to help the Homs. Melia uses magic to either hurt enemies or give her allies buffs. The Machina really want to stop Egil and are willing to help the Homs. All they want is peace.

Romantic Bonds

The first romantic bond is Shulk and Fiora. They are friends that are clearly interested in each other. Before they can form a romantic bond, Fiora is killed by a Mechon. This drives Shulk to want to destroy all Mechon. He doesn’t change his mind until he sees Fiora in a Mechon’s body. This Mechon behaves strangely because the Mechon clearly knows how Fiora feels about Shulk and decides to protect them. In fact, the Mechon destroys itself protecting Shulk.

After Fiora has been released from the Mechon, her and Shulk kiss beginning the romance they were too nervous to start at first. Fiora is actually nervous about the possibility of becoming fully human again because she desperately wants to help Shulk when he is fighting. She also is originally afraid that Shulk wouldn’t want a relationship with her now that she is part Mechon, but he just loves having her in his life again.

The other major romantic bond is between Sharla and Gadolt. Sharla and Gadolt were in love and had a close bond together. She tried to console Gadolt during the war against the Mechon. Gadolt went missing during battle and was perceived to be dead. Turns out he is alive, but one major problem. He is a Mechon and this time he has no memories of his past. After Fiora turned rogue from her memories and Mumkhar’s obsession with Dunban led to his demise, Egil decided that completely erasing memories, thus erasing bonds, would ensure that his next legion of Homs-Mechons would be even better warriors. Sharla is devastated that Gadolt no longer remembers her and that their bond has dissolved. But, it seems he may remember her because he purposefully misses her when he attacks the party.

Future Bonds

I am hoping that Sharla and Gadolt will have a mended bond. I am hoping that there is some way to regain his memories. I am also interested to see how Shulk and Fiora’s relationship will deepen now that they are together again. I also am hoping that there might be some way to stop Egil without killing him. Maybe if they get through to him that destroying another race will not help him with the pain of his past, he’ll stop this violence. That one unfortunately I think is the least likely outcome.

What are your thoughts on the bonds in this game? Maybe there is another game you can think of that focuses heavily on bonds.

 

 

Xenoblade Chronicles 3D Progress Update!

I am slowly progressing through the game on my Nintendo 3DS and I have finally caught up to where I was. I remembered when I saw the Telethia that this was where I had to quit and restart the entire game because I was just way too under-leveled.

So now, I have spent time doing most of the side quests and leveling up the characters and giving them the best equipment that I have. I also made sure that they read arts manuals so I could unlock the intermediate arts. This post will highlight my progress since my last Xenoblade Chronicles post.

Satorl Marsh

This area is so pretty! I can only describe it as ethereal and recommend you search for pictures of it! It’s also full of some tough bosses. I had to fight some of them in order to progress to Makna forest and I struggled with them a bit, but after doing more  side quests I finally got better and defeating them!

I mainly helped out some stray Nopon in the area. They’re really cute.

Makna Forest

It’s a forest that is separated by cliffs so you have to walk on narrow bridges, I do not recommend looking down! I also helped Nopon here, but I mainly helped the ones in Frontier village out!

One thing I do not like it a giant dinosaur that’s almost 100 and I am barely 40 so I run when I see it!

I also met Melia here and some guy that looks just like Shulk named Alvis. Melia is a mage in the game and she is so far determined to help her people with the Telethia. Alvis briefly taught a technique and then disappeared so I cannot really say much more about him yet.

Frontier Village

This is a Nopon village inside of a tree! I love it and it looks like such a nice place to live! There are bridges that help the village grow upwards inside the tree. It also has a beautiful clear lake at the bottom of the first level.

The Nopon need so much help, but because of them I have leveled up quickly from doing all of their side quests along Frontier Village and Makna Forest

Colony 6

I am slowly rebuilding Colony 6 and I love helping the people rebuild their city! I struggled at first helping them move because the enemies guarding the bridge were tough and there were multiple enemy types to defeat.

Now I can physically build the colony and invite people into the colony. It is currently almost completely level 2. I cannot make it fully level 2 yet because I need some rare materials.

I do love the reconstruction process because you can physically see the town being rebuilt. It starts out as a pile of rubble, but towns and shops pop up as you increase Colony 6’s level.

Leone Telethia Boss

This boss has two stages! Both times I was doing really well. I was able to strategize my moves to take down it’s health. It was so much easier this time! I did feel bad that the Telethia could not be tamed, but at least Melia was able to avenge her guard’s deaths.

Making Progress is So Rewarding!

I am really excited to see all new scenes after the Telethia boss. I am currently at Eryth sea and Alcamoth. Eryth sea is gorgeous with floating islands and the clear sea. Alcamoth is breathtaking. It is a large palace with clear seas and the colors are mainly white which makes it look ethereal as well. This game does a fantastic job of making these unique locations that do look like they are from another world! It really helps with immersion!

Name a game that you had a tough time progressing through!

Xenoblade Chronicles 3D and Second Chances

I got Xenoblade Chronciles 3D shortly after I got my new Nintendo 3DS XL which was in college. I did really enjoy the game, but I got stuck and eventually got frustrated. I decided to replay it after I got Xenoblade Chronicles 2 and now the game is much easier and more enjoyable!

What Caused the Problem?

The major issue was grinding. I was very under leveled and only beat Xord because the game bugged out and froze the boss! These games make grinding super easy, all you have to do is do the side quests. But, I was rushing to see the main plot and that left me under leveled and not prepared for anything.

These games also all involve strategy which I forgot about quickly. First you need to know how attacks will affect an enemy. You also need to pay attention to leveling up your skills and putting gems in equipment to make your equipment stronger.  I completely forgot that I was supposed to level up skills and that I could create gems! It was just me though, the game has a manual and tutorials that are built to help you if you get stuck!

How far did I get?

I stopped when I was supposed to rebuild Colony 6 because from there the side quests got so difficult because I was so under leveled that I really could not progress.

Second Chance

Taking the game slow is going so well. I love it so much more now! I love all the side quests and I love just taking the time to explore all of the areas in the game!

The game is not that hard when you try to understand it! Doing the side quests, leveling up your skills, and making sure you’re making gems that will help you makes the game so much easier.

Also I love the side quests because when I do them, I help the people in the colonies get along better! The games focuses on bonds so leveling up the bonds between the colonies and your party through quests or combat is crucial! I love that about the game!

How far am I now?

I am slowly getting to where I was. I beat Xor although it took 3 tries at the correct level! But, I realized I forgot to level up my skills before the fight so after I did that, he became much easier!

I have also completed all of the side quests that I could! I got introduced to adorable characters and fought some challenging optional bosses which were so much fun!

Second Chances

Xenoblade Chronicles 3D definitely deserved a second chance! When you take the time to play it and explore it, the game is so much more fun than rushing it! I am loving it so much more now that I am not rushing to finish the main plot of the game. Sometimes giving something a second chance is a great idea!

Have you ever given any games a second chance? Did you start enjoying the game the second time around?

Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance – A Fun Game with Fun Memories!

Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance was recommended to me by my friend who loves Kingdom Hearts! I fell in love with the game immediately as soon as I started it and the theme music played! I also love the 3D cutscene that starts before the main menu! The game was so much fun to play! I have fond memories taking this game everywhere with me! I would take it with me especially on Fridays when I would hang out waiting for my friend to be done with his undergrad classes after my classes were over!

Fun Beginning!

This game starts with a fun tutorial after the game’s beginning cutscene ends. The story revolves around Sora and Riku competing to become Keyblade Masters with a Mark of Mastery exam. This also involves a timed mechanic in the game because you play as Sora and Riku and switch between their characters when a timer runs out. This is done so you will play as both characters instead of only focusing one character at a time. The tutorial revolves around you defeating Ursula on a raft while learning the controls of the game! I love getting to fight Ursula because I loved her in The Little Mermaid. After the tutorial and a few more cutscenes, my first dive into another world began!

Dive Sequences

These could be hit or miss with me depending on how tough they were. Bosses could be really fun except for one big problem! You cannot heal during dive sequences so they could drop me down to no HP before I could finish the fight. This would be frustrating when I was stuck on a boss and could not get into the next world. The stars were easier to collect then the bosses for me. Mostly this section was fun and could be appealing to those who want a challenge.

Dream Eaters

I loved them as both enemies and allies! They were so cute and adorable and I love cute things! My absolute favorite that I always had in my party was Meow Wow. I loved that it was both a cat and a dog that had bouncy attack moves! I also loved that I could name them. Meow Wow was named “Cotton Candy” because of the bright colors. I also had the Tama Sheep which I named “Fluffy” because the sheep looked so soft. I enjoyed that I could pet them to upgrade their abilities because I love having virtual pets! I do not have pets so having virtual ones are amazing! I also enjoyed fighting the nightmare enemy forms because they were so bright and colorful!

La Cite des Cloches World

I loved this world because it reminded me of my friend! He loved The Hunchback of Notre Dame and would sing music from the movie frequently. This world was impressive looking because it looked just like the movie! I also loved the boss here! Sora and Riku both fight the Bullet Gargoyle although Riku fights him while the bell tower is on fire! It was an epic first boss fight because the boss is flying and I was trying to hit him!

Symphony of Sorcery World

I also loved this world because my friend and I had taken a music class together and this world featured classical music! I loved how bright and colorful the world was! The only frustrating feature that took me a while to get was the timing of the “Melody Catch” touch screen mini game. I remember struggling to grab the note in time and even asking my friend for advice until I finally figured it out.

Sora and Riku fight different bosses in this section. Sora fights Spellcan who I first had to chase on an ice sliding area until I reached the final boss area. I remember the boss being slightly frustrating because he flew around, but he was still a fun boss.

Riku fought Chernabog who was tough because the game switched to Dive rules. I had to dodge fire and reach him to hit him and try not to get hit and lose all my health. It was worth it to fight this boss especially with the orchestral soundtrack playing which made the boss fight so fun!

The World Ends That Never Was: Riku’s Hard Final Boss Moments

Riku has to save Sora by fighting a few bosses. Ansem was memorable because at one point he is protected by a black guardian with lots of health. I had to take down his health while keeping my health up. He had powerful attacks so that was really hard to do! The boss fight was challenging but was nothing compared to Young Xenahort

Young Xenahort was a hard boss. The fight was challenging , and I was barely keeping up when a clock appeared. I hate that clock! The mechanic is you have to destroy the clock really quickly with a Reality Shift using the touch screen or else Young Xenahort gets health back. If you succeed then you have to beat the clock while multiple Young Xenahorts try to stop you and quickly take out your health so he will again not regain health! I eventually beat him and the clock, but it was hard!

(I felt like this cat trying to fight the Young Xenahort boss!)

Hype for Kingdom Hearts 3

I wanted to talk about this game after all the news for Kingdom Hearts 3. I was thinking about it because I have not talked about it yet on the blog. I beat it a couple years ago so this is not a recent review!  My friend and I are both excited for Kingdom Hearts 3. Any time a trailer comes out, we start talking about it. We are also both concerned for Aqua! I am excited for the Toy Story world because I loved that movie as a kid! Kingdom Hearts 3 is just months away and I am so excited!

What did you think of Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance? Are you also excited for Kingdom Hearts 3?

My First Zelda Game: The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D

Everyone talked about Zelda at college in my friend group. I did not grow up with the series, but I was interested. Why is there so much love for the series?

I decided I had to play one of the games. So I got a Nintendo 3DS and The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D.

There will be minor spoilers for the game just so you know.

Starting the Game and Kokiri Forest

When I started the game, I decided to name my character something stupid because I thought it would be funny: I named him Balls.

As soon as I started the game, I was amazed by the 3D graphics and the beauty of the forest. I loved how cute the characters were although Navi could be annoying when she told me I was playing too long.

I liked the first dungeon inside the old tree. It was a simple way of introducing me to the game. I was terrified by the spiders because I do not like spiders especially when they have skulls on them and they are bigger than me! They are creepy enough tiny!

The first boss did not help things with the spiders. Her name was Queen Gohma. I had to fight her in the dark with her one glowing eye. It was scary being in the dark with a giant spider! But, I defeated her and beat my first dungeon.

Getting Out Into the World: Favorite Parts

Meeting Zelda

I had to sneak in to meet Zelda.  I had to move slowly past guards to get to her and it was fun being stealthy. Zelda was adorable, she was so nice to me. I also loved learning my first ocarina song: “Zelda’s Lullaby” after I met Zelda. I loved playing  the ocarina and learning all the songs for it.

Getting Epona

I was so excited to get Epona because I loved riding horses when I was a kid. I learned her song from Malon and then won a horse race as an adult. I then had to jump the horse over a fence to keep Epona. I loved riding her and that I could call her with my ocarina.

Gerudo Fortress

I loved this area because of the Gerudo women. I loved the design of the women and that they were fierce warriors. I got captured by them and had to sneak around them. I liked fighting with them because they would guard and fight with two swords and do backflips.

Favorite Temple: Forest Temple

I liked the Poes and having to find them and fight them. It was fun exploring the temple and looking for them. I also liked fighting Phantom Ganon. It was intense waiting for him to come out of the paintings and having to hit him before he attacks you. I remember being so jumpy the entire fight because I was so afraid he would hit me!

Favorite boss: Ganondorf

My favorite boss is Ganondorf. When the boss fight begins, he crumbles the castle so you cannot get close to him. He would fire balls of light at me and I would have to time my sword strike to hit the ball of light back at him to stun him. Then he was stunned, I would hit him with light arrows. I loved the environment that we were fighting in and how the combat required precise timing.

Final Thoughts

I loved this game! This game started my love of Zelda games. I loved the music in this game especially the ocarina. I also loved the story and the use of time travel. I think it is a great game!

What was your first Zelda game? What are some of your favorite memories from that game?

Detective Pikachu and My Love of Mystery Games

Detective Pikachu for the Nintendo 3DS combined my love for mysteries and Pokémon. I have always loved mysteries. I played mystery games as a kid and enjoy reading mystery books. I also grew up with the Pokémon anime and the Game Boy Color games. I was excited to play this and even got the Pikachu amiibo for it.

Pikachu

I enjoyed Detective Pikachu because I liked Pikachu. I enjoyed his personality and how he was a good detective. I also thought it was really cute that he liked coffee so much because he reminded me of my mom and her love of coffee.

I also like pressing the Pikachu icon to see what he would do.  I enjoyed the detective tips and Pikachu talking. That button was also useful to hear dialogue about the case when it lit up.

It was fascinating that Pikachu could gather testimony from the other Pokémon. Tim, the main character,  and I would hear Pokémon sounds but Pikachu could hear what they were saying. It added a fun twist to the detective mystery when I could gather testimony from humans and Pokémon.

First Case

The first case involved trying to find a lost necklace. Some Aipom take the necklace and then the story branches out to find which Pokémon took the necklace. It was a fun introduction to the characters and how sleuthing works.

I enjoyed looking for clues and gathering testimony from the humans and Pokémon. The clues were not too hard to find in the first case because the game guided me through it. A big part is not only gathering clues, but working with Pikachu to figure out what the clues mean to figure out how to progress the story further such as which direction did the Aipom with the necklace go.

I enjoyed that the first case was well thought out with little twists instead of being super obvious. The game was not too hard because it is for children. But, I still had to take time to think and examine my clues so make sure I figured out where the necklace went.

Main Story

The main mystery involves the disappearance of Tim’s father and why some Pokemon are going berserk. I will not spoil either one of these mysteries, you will have to play the game to find out what happens!

I will say that the main story is interesting and there are plenty of twists and turns. Most of the cases revolve around the main plot of the story and figuring out where Tim’s father is. I liked how the plot developed and loved going through each case until the story reached a conclusion.

Final Thoughts

I enjoyed the game and I am hoping that they might might make a sequel because I really enjoyed this game. I thought it was a good detective game with a good mystery. It was also not too challenging, but there was a couple times where I did need extra time to figure clues out.

I recommend that you get this game for the Nintendo 3DS. It has cute mysteries with a great main story. It is perfect for fans of Pokémon and mystery games!

What are some of your favorite mystery games?
