Be warned, each map (of 12) takes about an hour or so to do.

Try to play it in English or at least with a translation of the script. Story in this game is pretty good and be aware of the love mechanic so you don't screw yourself in the second half.

How does it differ from what they did in 6-9?

depending on how difficult the japanese is, i may understand it.

it takes an hour, even with emulator speedup? this could be troublesome...

No, I meant how does the "love mechanic" differ from the support system of later games?

These "conditionally spawning" - and even worse, the god damn randomly spawning - quest monsters are fucking terrible.

Maps are huge yo.

Of course, you can save at any time you like, so it's probably not that big of an issue.

Depending on which characters fall in love and which characters die it'll change what characters you have later on along with their stats/class.

I was going to get on that train, but Xenoblaaaaaaaaade.

I'm probably not going to be able to finish this game before I go off to Alberta, though. Hope I remember what the Fuck was doing when I get back.

So I switched out Shulk for Dunban for affinity purposes and it turns out that Dunban is fuckin awesome.

I kind of don't want to use anybody else ever again.

I'm not in love with Dunban, but I figure I'll go for a Shulk-Dunban-Sharla party if he turns out to be a better tank than Reyn.

Reyn's doin' pretty god damn solidly right now, though.

And Fuck Riki and Melia.

I had read elsewhere that Dunban is a far better tank than Reyn. I don't know, I haven't gotten that far yet.

He has more agility, and if you play to that strenght, he dodges a whole lot. He dishes out more damage then Reyn too. I mainly like he cuz of his auras and cuz he can break/topple an enemy on his own.

Melia is supposed to be the highest hitter in the game when controlled. I'm going to try her out next and see what that's about.

It all came from a thread I accidentally came across when searching for info on Xenoblade. Someone was making an argument of how Shulk/Reyn/Sharla was the only good combo of characters, and the counter argument was that not only wasn't it true, but it was actually one of the weakest combinations and gave examples where each of the characters abilities weren't required.

Yeah, Melia doesn't seem bad, but... I wouldn't trust the AI to handle her, and I like playing as Shulk a lot more.

My main party was Shulk Dunban and Sharla and I think it worked fine. You will need to switch in Melia and Ricki in one or two fights (controlling Melia works better than the AI) as some later enemies and one rage inducing boss are almost completely immune to physical attacks, so you need ether fighters.

Damn I hated the end of this game. Insane, sudden difficulty spikes. Could be because I was trying to plow through though and didn't do most of the end game sidequests (the best way to level imho)

I'll talk about it, but I don't think you're going to like it.

I actually just finished it two days ago. Played it after hearing people rave about it for a year, since it came out on PC. I have to say I was very underwhelmed and disappointed. Let me first say that it is in no way a bad game. It's just easily one of the most overrated I've ever played. My main problem being that I didn't give two shits about any of the characters. The game could have ended with them all dying in a ditch somewhere and I wouldn't have blinked an eye. I don't know if that's because I haven't played the first game or not, but I was assured by everyone I could go into this fresh so that's not an excuse. This trickles down to every other aspect. Since I cared for no one, none of the choices mattered to me. What does it matter if I go with Roche or Iorveth? They're both boring, unlikeable people who's politics matter not to me.

Maybe it was all the hype, I don't know. Either way, I'll probably play through it one more time to see the other side of the major choice at the end of act 1 and be done with the game for good.

Some of these side missions in ME3 are getting to be pretty dry. I'm going to start skipping anything related to Cerebrus, they bore me.

And spoiler:

I strictly stayed away from the sequel because people said you had to play the first to appreciate it. Weird.

Combat felt clunky and looked wretched. Movement was clumsy as hell. Animation in general was awful. Juvenile "look at all these titties" feel going on (which ain't to say that you didn't get that in Mass Effect, but for Fuck's sake, what's-her-name's tits were the only part of her that had actual animation). Amnesia cliché felt entirely pointless. And as ugly as it was (note: it was ugly), it ran like shit.

Just finished it last night. I'll have my handshake-contracted review of it up later this week. In short I loved it.
