    Nadia, keeping beating the DeVito drum until Nintendo finally listens!

    Nadia comes through with a thoughtful article. This is a well-written piece and echoes some of my own feelings on Pyra. I wonder how much of the backlash could have been avoided if Monolith Soft just provided some different costume options for Rex and Pyra?

    I wish that one of these ambitious companies could find the middle ground between pandering to the worst anime sterotypes and making characters too bland. Xenoblade goes too far in one direction, FF15 with the all-black wearing dudes goes too far in the other direction.

    Ultimately, the character design is just one of many examples of missed opportunities in Xenoblade. Performance issues, some baffling character designs, poorly explained mechanics and one of the absolute worst map systems I've ever seen keep Xenoblade from living up to its potential.
