Did you remember to buy out all the shops?
I do when I can, yeah

Can blacksmiths and accessory shops be purchased?

Go buy every store you can buy. You can't buy those ones though.

Do the moneymaking trick in Mor Ardain. 1 million in 30 minutes.

Buy gold canisters.

Go to the salvage spot by the entrance to the old factory.

Make sure you have at least Salvaging 3, but the closer to 10 points+, the better. You'll get right around 100k out of every successful salvage. It's AAA, by the way.

If you actually salvage what the traders want, you can not only make a lot of money, but you get the boosters you are after as well.

Yeah this is what I do

I always have at least a couple hundred thousand on me at any given time.

I liked the game, but I read this review today and I don't disagree with much in it

So for me:

Story --  1    X    2
Battle System --  2      X      1
Length --    1      X      2
Enviroments --    1      X      2
Voice Acting --     X      1/2
Music --       1       2        X


Despite being half finished, X's story was way more interesting in concept.  One had the best and most complete story, where as 2's story was just kind of ok.  Nothing ground breaking.

 X had more battle variety with the mechs, but the break/topple etc mechanic in that game was hampered by long cooldowns on those skills, and was basically void once you got Skells anyway.  Because who wants to fight on foot when you can do it in a skell?  The Battle system in 2 works well, as the break/topple mechanic is more functional, and elemental chaining is well designed and fun.  At first I didn't like that you only got three skills per character at a time, as I was used to having many like 1 and X had.  But it worked out nicely.  1's battle system was fine, but obviously as it came first, the formula was improved upon.

Xeno 1's world felt much larger and it also felt like there was more to do.  X by comparison had a smaller world, but also had lots to do.  2's world, I found, had you visiting some areas quite often, and completely neglecting others.  There were certain areas I never had a reason to visit more than once, if at all.

2 was horribly lacking in the variety of environments that 1 and X had.  1 was insanely good, where day and night made a big difference in how an area looked.  X had the benefit of making it an alien world, so the variety in the things you saw was vast.


Voice acting might be subjective in a way, but I thought X was the most normal sounding.  They actually had known talent do the voices, but they weren't annoying either in the way that Rex is.  1 and 2 both had their hits and misses for voice actors.  Zeke being one of the best of 2's offerings.  And some of the Blades were well done.  1 was similar in that some voices were better than others, but a lot of the interaction between characters was what made it good.  Melia and Dunban shit talking Reyn was always fun to hear.

Music, 1 has the best by far.  Each zone, day or night, had the perfect music to go with it.  And it was extremely well done.  Much of the music in X was forgettable, and the music that wasn't was horrible.  New LA's theme still angers me.  X also had a habit of blasting the music over a voice acted cutscene for some reason, making shit hard to hear.  2's music was just ok.

You might have a different view of it if you played it after you played X.  Which I think you did.


Also let me know when you beat 2 so we can discuss the ending.

I'm going to beat 2 soon. I'm like 90% of the way there, but I mostly play it on the go and I've been busy with work stuff.

I think you're right about why I like it less than most fans. I still like it, but I'm less enamored. I liked a lot of the X music, but WTF were they thinking with the volume during cut scenes? They did it a couple times in 2, but to a lesser extent. I don't think it ever happened in 1.
