Complaints about the voice lines during battle really confuse me. Just turn them down so you don't hear them as much. One of the things that I kept hearing about in reviews before I got the game was the annoying voice lines so when I started playing, I made sure to turn them down. It's not rocket science

Man, I miss ZeRo, regardless of his personal life, this guy has made me get through a lot of hard times. I was 15 when I was on my own, also was dating an older guy, and got abused a lot, People like ZeRo helped me through that time, when I was suicidal by putting a smile on my face. while im not sure how to feel about his bad side, I will miss him not doing anymore thats good for the world.

So this is how it ends... no more videos because of what he has done in the past. I never thought I would ever see a youtuber end like this. I was subbed for a good bit and learned a bit to, but it is sad to see this channel go. It sucks that he wont be making more videos, but I guess that is for the best since it would probably do more harm then good, especially if he made one of those over done apology videos. Soon even this comment section will be gone, which is for the best, I guess. It is good that he had gotten caught, I just wish he didn't have to stop making videos because of it. At least he seems sorry for what he did, but that doesn't mean that it justifies what he did in the past. Instead of kicking him while he is down (even though he most likely doesn't look at the comments anymore for obvious reasons) and saying good riddance, I will say adios, it was good seeing your videos.

I agree that IGN's review was sloppy trash, but I also didn't like Xenoblade. Sorry, Zero! The combat system was so weird to me (and the constant repeating of the lines during battle after battle was really annoying to me too). I watched tutorials, and tried beating the same cave beast at least 15 times (to the point that I ended up two levels beyond them, when I had been two levels below at first), and I still couldn't do it. My crew kept dying, and the frantic scrolling through available arts just isn't fun or intuitive at all. I hated it and finally just gave up, since combat is clearly going to be a very frequent thing in the game. But, maybe this kind of game just isn't for me, since I also don't enjoy playing around with each character's gear and re-dressing them all the time. I just find it tedious.

@Monado Max Sorry, I never noticed this response. It was the big worm looking thing with a bunch of smaller ones, quite early in the game. It was optional, but as an indication of how battle works and how future battles might go... well, I traded away the game. Not for me at all (despite adoring even the little bit of the lore I'd seen up to there).

See this? Unlike what IGN did, these are actual good critiques of the game. What cave beast were you talking about btw, as far as I know most of them are optional and can just be run away from?

The “too much water” critique is hilarious, but I think people misunderstand what they actually meant. They weren’t complaining about excessive surfing/ocean exploration. In the review they mention that they perceived an over-abundance of water type Pokémon in battles, and complained that there should have been more variety. It’s still a pretty dumb critique, but not as ridiculous as the poorly-worded end-card suggests.

The reason she finds so many water types is because she's playing Alpha Sapphire, where the villains use water types, if she didn't want that she could have just as easily played Omega Ruby where the villains primarily focus on fire and ground types. When a criticism is immediately followed by "Oh, but the game gives you an option to change this" then it's not a real criticism, like in the Xenoblade review, why even bring up the combat voices at all if there is an option to turn them off? Criticism should be focused on stuff that actually harm the gameplay experience, not things that are easily alleviated by options given you by the game.

Criticizing a recorded video for a written review because the narrator read a couple weird JRPG names in a script wrong is the most asinine petty shit I’ve seen in awhile. IGN reviews hundreds of games every year and having a separate narrator for a remaster of an. 8 year old 100 hour long JRPG that was reviewed by a freelancer doesn’t seem all that objectionable. I love Xenoblade, and holy shit this just seems the gamer mob making a big deal over nothing. For memes sure it’s funny shit, but actual hate? Lol. It seemed like a decent review to me. Nothing stellar but like... ??? I don’t understand all the hate for it either. Is it fucking Shakespeare? It is deep literary criticism? No, but fuck it’s a decent source of information most of the time. Bandwagon shit

I remember a rather infamous review not by IGN but classic game room undertow where they reviewed smt IV, and completely botched the whole thing by claiming the whole game took place in the naraku, which is the dungeon in the eastern kingdom of Mikado. What made it bad was that the gameplay footage showed that the guy got past the Minotaur, meaning he just straight up decided to give up once hitting Medusa. In case you don't know, fifteen seconds after defeating Medusa, you climb all the way down and hit Tokyo. A prime example of gameplay being cut just short for the sake of a review.

The biggest mistake in IGN's decision making imo is to make their reviews less than 5 minutes. You can't really elaborate even a little on any of your points in such a short time. And when you combine that with an already rushed writing, that makes catastrophic reviews after catastrophic reviews.

Honestly it deserved a 10/10 for the QoL improvements alone. The affinity chart allows you to track individuals if you need to talk to them for a trade, it lets you see what they trade from the chart, and the quest tracker(especially item orbs) has saved me sooo much time. I already have Colony 9 to 3 star affinity and completed the Collectopedia for the first two areas in less than 9 hours. It took me around 12-15 hours to do the same amount of progress in the Wii version. The only thing that I can notice that is significantly slower is the Gem crafting, the crafting process is so much slower now.

@ 6:11 actually that's exactly what they do lol. I did that for a couple months for some channels here on youtube. I received a script, I did the voice over for it, and I went about recording the rest of the scripts. I would get like 10 or so to do and id record them all in one take each and then ship them off. half the shows i had never watched and I had extremely little help with pronouncing the names of the characters. I was basically on my own.

I don't like melia either while I do not like ign I think 8 is a little high. But as far as ign goes i watched a lot of their reviews but it does not seem like they really know what they are doing at all. I don't like the 3 xenoblade games. To me they are the weakest of the xeno games but I hate auto combat so that might be a lot of the issue for me because I find auto combat boring. I prefer turn based which might be why I like the older xeno games better. That being said I did like the mechs in x.

Needing a character to develop over the course of the story it over rated. The most needed thing is that a character is nuanced and makes sense. Heck there is no one way to right a good character. (For every guide line there is an exemption). But they clearly missed the point that Melia’s emotional and mental fortitude is what got her through the tragedy in her life.

I didn't finished it yet, and it's my first run. But well the story is really mediocre with very few surprising things, and most of the characters are underdeveloped and doesn't matter too much. Melia is just there to show us a but of the Lore of Alcamoth, but after that the ruler of the high entias is just there without much to say or do, and her brother takes a the important action. I thinl that somehow at the end the whole breething with humans will have some sort of explanation and I will remember that she exists. The good things about the game is the exploration (way better than in the sequel), the combat and the QoL, it really appreciates your time and wants you to have fun most of the time you are playing.

Thinga that I dislike aboute IGN 1. Ye olde "Too Much Water" that even Pokemon itself saw it as a meme, as one of the comments in sun and moon's rotom cam. 2. "Roxas is a garbage character that no one cares about." I'm sorry, WHAT?! Roxas has a very saddening backstory, which makes him one of the best Kingdom Hearts characters. STOP CUTSCENE SKIPPING, IGN. 3. They rated Pokemon SWORD AND SHIELD (A half assed game imho) HIGHER THAN THIS GAME, WITH A 9.4. A N I N E P O I N T F O U R

This video sold my love for you, ZeRo. Even though IGN gave a piss poor review of Xenoblade, you still gave them a fair point of view and explained what they could improve in fine detail rather than going straight to harsh criticism like so many other youtubers. Not to say the criticism isn't unwarranted, but at the end of the day, what does it gain if you don't give them something to work off of? Keep up the good work my dude.

I think there's a big difference between a youtuber or an individual content creator doing sponsors or advisers, where you're aware they are an ad/sponsor and can divorce that from the content made (since there are rules about transparent sponsored content), and IGN not being transparent in who pays them/advertises on their website, etc. IGN isn't transparent, they aren't honest, and they make too many mistakes that they don't own up to. It's a classic example of a 'games journalism' company being an advertising extension of AAA publishers.
