This week’s video will strike a chord with anyone who’s played Xenoblade Chronicles 2. That’s because this video brings in voice samples from an iconic regular enemy, the Scottish accented soldiers of Mor Ardain. If you’ve not had the pleasure of sampling this game, you may wonder what makes these soldiers so memorable. Well, there’s just something funny about these dime a dozen soldiers who order you not to forget them every few seconds everytime you encounter them. That plus the Scottish accent.
A lot of love went into this video, that’s for sure. It’s a great way to honour the Xenoblade series, with its now rich tradition of hilarious battle chatter. All three games have spawned stupid meme-worthy dialogue, from “now it’s Reyn time” (XBC) to “have a biscuit” (XBCX) to “you’re done” (XBC2). Keep up the fine work Monolithsoft, I say.
We’re in trouble here, aren’t we? It’s been two months since my last blog post. But, more significantly, is that I have hardly thought about this site during that time. That leaves me with only two options:
- A radical rethink in how the blog is run.
- End the blog.
