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.
Nester the Lark: Here's an archive of results from the Everybody Votes channel. I found my poll question in the US English section for September 1, 2009.

nocturnal YL: Do you consider yourself to be more of a ... Romantic: 39.1% Realist: 60.9% This one, right? So… what's your own vote to that question? (I'd have picked realist.)
May 6, 2021 9:58:40 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: ^ At the time, I think I picked romantic. Not sure what I'd pick today. I feel like I'm somewhere in between.

Nester the Lark: Lately, the forum feels more like "Nester & YL's clubhouse."

nocturnal YL: Looking at the other members' last online date, I can safely say that this place is pretty much inactive by now.

Nester the Lark: Looking at an old post I wrote two years ago, I noticed I misspelled "threw" as "through," and now I'm angry at myself.

nocturnal YL: …Why am I still seeking gaming news when I have 7 games yet to complete and at least 2 more that I plan to get? (EDIT — Oh right, Ys IX has a confirmed release date. That makes at least 3 games I'll get later.)

nocturnal YL: My current plan is to play Atelier Firis DX now, which online guides suggest is long. Atelier Lydie & Suelle DX will likewise be long (longer than the original too, due to DLC, DX additions and I'll make the best items). I'll maybe play Ys Origin after.
Jun 14, 2021 10:28:43 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Not sure about what I'll play after. Another Atelier game will probably be out by then, either completing the Secret series or giving us Arland 5. Either way, I'll probably play those before going elsewhere. Dusk will have to wait for quite a bit…

Nester the Lark: Wondering if I should get Mario Golf at launch or wait a couple of months. I have so many other things to play that my gaming (and wallet) might need a little breathing room.

Nester the Lark: The problem with playing Hyrule Warriors and a modern Ys game at the same time is that even though the combat feels somewhat similar, the controls are completely different, and I get confused.

Shrikeswind: Yeah I'm here, but kinda vaguely. Sorry, I haven't had too much to say lately.

Shrikeswind: By the way, I don't know if you guys have been keeping up with OCR on YouTube, but apparently they're dropping an album for a game I grew up on, Jet Force Gemini. Really pumped; I'll post a review when they finish.
Jul 8, 2021 11:30:44 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: Or at least when my Top 3 from that game are on the Toobz. Just one more song to go.

Nester the Lark: I feel like I've been neglecting the forum more than usual lately. Been distracted by other things. I'll try to post something when I get the chance.

nocturnal YL: I don't have time to make posts. Atelier Firis DX takes forever to play. When I'm not playing, I'm in a read-only mode, reading guides and watching (unrelated) videos.
Jul 17, 2021 13:25:38 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: On that note, I'll probably make a review on the whole trilogy, so it will be a while until I talk about these games in details here. I can say Atelier Firis DX has far exceeded my expectation and has taken over Totori as my 3rd fav.
