The month of January has been absolutely insane for Operation Rainfall! Before all the crazy, the Operation Rainfall Staff decided to set aside January 18th, 2013 as the official recording date for the Xenoblade Spoilercast. Recall what happened two days before then, if you would. What started as a podcast centered around Xenoblade became the proper send-off to the campaign as a whole.

But, beyond moments of celebration and moments of absolute insanity, this podcast does primarily focus on Xenoblade Chronicles. Which is to say, it spoils everything ever. BE MINDFUL OF THIS BEFORE LISTENING! As with the big roundtable on Square-Enix, this podcast will be broken down to speed to the parts of discussion that are most relevant to you, or better, to warn you when the spoilers come.



0:01 – 19:00 Introductions, “something no one saw coming”, “What’s next?”
19:01 – 35:41 Spoiler-free Xenoblade talk, Game of the Year talk, talk of spoiling games in general.


35:42 – 52:14 “You exist outside the pre-established harmony.”
52:15 – 1:10:09 “Time can flow only towards the inevitable.”
1:10:10 – 1:32:11 “It was simple curiosity…”
1:32:12 – 1:39:15 Conclusion

  • Wonderful Xenoblade / accent filled / punctuation podcast guys (and girl)! 😀 Loved the round table and all the Xenoblade music played throughout the podcast, it’s actually made we want to play it again (it’s a shame I don’t have a 120 hours to spare D:)

    It took me about 3 hours to get to the first spoiler mentioned….I think I was to pre-occupied by beating up those rabbit thingy’s and kicking ass as Fiora (DOUBLE KNIFES = DOUBLE WIN!!!)

    ALSO! I completely agree with Charlotte about the scene in Valek Mountain…SO AWESOME! He’s fighting a guy with claws with only one arm and a sickle! SO AWESOME ^o^

    After reflecting on it, I’ve realised that Xenoblade had so excellent plot-twists (some of the best in gaming I’d say) and some excellent characters aswell (Melia and Sharla are DA BEST!)

    Jonathan, I had a problem fighting Loritihia aswell 🙁 Not because of the how long it took, but because of her dialogue. I must have heard her one line of dialogue about 20 times in any one fight with her! I couldn’t tell if it was a glitch or not but that boss fight was so annoying D:

    It’s very interesting hearing about the cut map from the game, infact I had no idea about it….I’ll have to look that up

    Anway, keep up the great work with the podcast, and I hope to hear more in the near future! 🙂 But for now…WHERE’S THAT RICKY PICTURE!!

    I like what you guys are doing here, but if I could offer some constructive criticism. I feel like your music in the background is too loud. Especially during faster, louder songs. So, if you could lower the music (or remove it completely, which would be my preference) then I think it would make the podcast much better.

    But, maybe that’s just me.
