    well I've never not liked a nintendo handheld, and I don't regret buying the 3ds, the library is starting to pick up

    and I'm excited about the wii-u because it will have modern graphics and an actual controller, so it'll be more likely to have games I'm interested in from third parties, and I like the potential of the extra screen

    so yeah

    there is still the chance I will get burned on both these things but Kid Icarus Uprising is pretty awesome for a game I didn't have any interest in before hearing other people talk about it

    Hey I'm like 15 hours into persona 3. Any characters I should be not using cause they suck or can I just use whoever I like best.

    Kid Icarus looks so awful to me. Just nothing about it looks appealing from everything I've seen of it. Just the combat and the way it controls and the visuals.

    I like the combat, and the visuals are great

    I will give you the controls though

    the game should be labeled "free arthritis with every purchase"

    My Wii makes a loud buzzing noise when there is a disk in the system. Apparently I can fix it if I take it apart, but forget that. I will just turn up the volume. Problem solved.

    The Prime trilogy was deleted fairly quickly so it is somewhat rare.

    And I have Last Story sitting on my desk but I have to finish Xenoblade first, I think I'm near the end.

    Where are you in xenoblade?

    In between making that post and this one I have

    Are there any consequences to dying? Aside from getting sent back to the last landmark?

    Enemies respawn/regain their health, that's it.

    Plus with boss fights you don't have to worry about cutscenes repeating, which is aces.

    I KEEP DYING.

    I'm in the first cave, and I stop to open a few treasure chests and then suddenly some unusual battle music starts and I'm attacked by a lizard who kills me in a few hits. I didn't even have time to turn around.

    IT'S THE FIRST CAVE.

    I've died three times in this cave so far.

    Sometimes with the time of day changes new monsters can spawn in on top of you. I was chasing a low level monster that was suddenly replaced with a high level one because of the day change.

    That sounds like the miniboss tucked away in a corner, I suggest grinding up some levels against weaker enemies, I know I had to in that cave.

    Can somebody explain in a little more detail how to cause a chain attack? I'm fighting metal face and nothing seems to work. Reyn keeps dying and as soon as I revive him he dies again. What exactly am I supposed to do?

    tayatagi.gif
  • TayaTaya Happy ___ Day Registered User regular
    The problem is that I can't get my party gauge up when I have to keep reviving Reyn.

    Chain attacks involve maxing out the blue gauge at the top (the party gauge) by using arts well. So attacking from behind with back slash, for example.

    Once it's maxed out select your central talent art and hit up until the chain attack option comes up. Activate it and use a move that triggers break, then use Reyn's Wild Down to topple.

    With building it up you need to ensure Reyn is getting aggro for attacks and you are using Light Heal to keep him healthy. Have you upgraded your team's arts yet?

    Actually I got it.

    The trick is to keep him dead.

    There's one fight in that cave that killed me a few times until I learned to use the Taunt/Pull enemy option instead of start battle to pull all the normals away from the mini boss one by one so that when I took the main guy on I didn't end up bringing a bunch of smaller guys into the fight as well.

    I think I'm finally getting the hang of battles. They keep introducing more and more features and mechanics though.

    It's also pretty easy to get sidetracked crippled by quests. I think I'm close to the next location, but I want to turn around and complete some quests that I accepted. As soon as I complete a quest, I accept two or three more.

    Yeah, there are a lot of mechanics that show up at that point, don't forget that you can re-read any of them from the menu.

    So I picked up my preorder today, not bothering to look through the artbook since I'm assuming it spoils the whole game

    When I got back it turns out my rechargeable battery packs no longer work : /

    Anyone got a recommendation for replacements?

    haha, i put on the english voices because i wasnt sure if the audible cues would help with chain attacks and i was generally curious if i was missing anything interesting ambient chatter between party members.

    now i dont want to turn it off because this game sounds like harry potter the final fantasy years

    I think you can play it with just the remote+nunchuk? I just ordered a copy from Nintendo and I'm pretty excited.

  • ArtreusArtreus Hamlet Registered User regular

    The remote/nunchuck set up is fine save for when you want to move and zoom the camera around. You have to hold "c" on the nunchuck and then use the dpad on the remote which is kind of clunky. If you have a CC it's probably preferable (I might actually get one now that i've started this game).

    I got this game and a Classic Controller Pro (and I actually bought my first Wii with a bunch of games) last week and it's working out pretty great. The combat is surprisingly fun and even though it plays like a single player MMO, I think that's what I've wanted all along cause I always just try to solo.

    The only thing that gets to me a little is how dumb the dialogue can be at points, and when they insist on flashing back to one moment three or four times within a couple of hours. I KNOW ALREADY
