Is it known yet if Shulk and Fiora are voiced by Adam Howden and Carina Reeves in the English version? It sure sounds like them.
The Japanese production notes say they're voiced by the original Japanese actors. There isn't an official English version of the notes yet, but whenever NoA/NoE get around to it, maybe they'll say who the English voice actors are.
I know that Howden voiced another character in the game, so they probably did get him for this. They did get Reeves back for XCX, so imagine she probably did reprise her role as well. If she did lines for Fiora in Smash Ultimate, I would be she did this as well.

Elma stared at Rex's face pondering how his nose could vanish when viewed from the front and would reappear when viewed from the side until her train of thought was broken by everyone around her speaking in funny accents. This lead to a new question of was she the only one who spoke "normally" in this strange new world?

Finally finished Torna - The Golden Country. I did not end up doing every side quest because I got a little burned out from the grind.
The ending was very emotional, as expected from how things unfold in the main game. I admit it got to me, not just because of how it ends, but because it felt like I was finally "finished" with Xenoblade Chronicles 2. Sure, there are some loose ends I can still tie up (I'm still missing one rare Blade), and Torna has its own NG+, but as for the main content, it feels like I've covered it (twice in the case of the main game).
Having been so heavily absorbed in it for the past 10 months, it feels a little hard to let go. (I had similar feelings about Breath of the Wild before it.) It's definitely one of the best RPGs I've ever played, and I feel quite attached to it. I imagine I'll jump back in from time to time (again, as I do with BotW), but it's time to move on to other games for now.
Maybe I'll finally get around to finishing Ys VIII.
Shrikeswind: His name is Elliott, btw.

Nester the Lark: Congrats again, Uncle Shrikes!

Nester the Lark: The Japanese voice actor for Adol (of the Ys series), Yuji Kaji, will be making an appearance at Konami's TGS presentation to "represent the fans." In the past, Konami has showcased Falcom's games at TGS. I wonder if there will be more to it...

Nester the Lark: I'm reluctant to do spoiler discussions because if people are playing the game, they wouldn't want spoilers, and if they're not playing the game, they wouldn't be interested anyway.
Sept 3, 2022 9:00:36 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: I'm… not sure if I'll read your spoiler discussions. I don't think I'll get the chance to play this, but at the same time, I'm not entirely sure I won't, either.

nocturnal YL: I have yet another pile of games waiting to be played. Due to various circumstances (I'm busy at work, this month's weekends are filled with family events, and Project DIVA Mega Mix just got new DLC), I'm not able to play them yet.

nocturnal YL: I'm currently at 34 Switch games played. I've been thinking about my Switch review videos and I'll make another at 36 or 40 games. Leaning towards 36.

nocturnal YL: I actually wanted to remake the older ones as well. I didn't notice that the 2nd video had volume issues in the audio until I have my current PC.

Nester the Lark: If you're thinking of playing Xenoblade Chronicles 3, then definitely *don't* read the late-game spoilers I posted.

Shrikeswind: So I assume everyone here's heard the news but for those who haven't, Queen Elizabeth died today.
Sept 8, 2022 14:50:28 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: I learned on the way home from work today - I stopped in at a McDonalds for lunch, was checking the news in line, and...well, there it was.

Nester the Lark: I knew it was serious when I heard the whole royal family dropped whatever they were doing to be by her side.

Nester the Lark: I'm not British, but there's never not been a Queen of England during my lifetime (and indeed, most of a lifetime before that), so even though I knew it had to happen eventually, it still feels a little weird.

Nester the Lark: I guess there is still the "Queen Consort," but I'm talking about how there's a King now.
Sept 9, 2022 9:13:49 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: Well, a lot to take in there. I'll post my impressions either later or tomorrow.

Nester the Lark: The English lip sync in Xenoblade Chronicles 3 has spoiled me. I was hoping Fire Emblem: Engage would have it, too, but comparing the English and Japanese trailers, it doesn't seem to be the case.
Sept 19, 2022 8:44:03 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: Wondering if I should create a thread for Fire Emblem: Engage, or just talk about it in the general Fire Emblem thread...

Nester the Lark: Nintendo has had a good rhythm with their releases. When I'm tired of Xenoblade, they release a new Fire Emblem. When I'm tired of Fire Emblem, they release a new Xenoblade. When I'm tired of both, they release a new Zelda.

nocturnal YL: Super Mario Galaxy 2 is a relatively new game in terms of TAS, so it usually doesn't look as impressive as Super Mario 64. But sometimes we get stuff like this: Cosmic Cove Green Star 1 in 20.58s
