IKR??

This game does some things amazingly well, things like gyro, which so few games overall bother to include, and this may be the only mech game ever to include it. It also gives you 100% control over customizing the button inputs. It’s fantastic.

And yet, this game does some things incredibly poorly. Like no cloud saves? Why? And while it may not be the “game”, the Marvelous JP policy of claiming social media videos... don’t they get it? That’s their advertising. Without monetization nobody’s going to talk about it on YouTube.

I guess you gotta take the good with the bad.

Happy birthday indeed! It’s a really, really slick CE.

Couple questions for anyone who knows...

What’s Femto?

And what is assault shift and wing shift?

And is it worthwhile using a Shield? Or is a melee Sword a better choice for lefthand weapon? Right now I have assault rifle for right weapon, shield for left weapon, sword for right pylon and bazooka for left pylon.

@JaxonH Femto is something kinda like “Protoculture” in Robotech, if that helps

Wings boost faster, but lower defense
Arms increases damage, but lower defense
Shield is a temp passive shield, no drawback but longer cooldown

The shield weapon says it helps against ballistic weapons, so I left that thing in the hangar once missiles started showing on the battlefield.

Love this game

@HobbitGamer
I’m not familiar with the genre so, all of this stuff is new to me. I don’t know what Robotech is 🤔

So Assault Shift, Wing Shift and “Shield Shift (???)” are all tradeoff skills? Doesn’t sound like something I’d be interested in using since defense is usually my top priority. So I guess I should skip these skills in the skill tree then...

The shield weapon is weird because if I press ZL, my guy moves the shield out in front of my, like he’s “defending”. So it seems that one is at least not passive, still have to press Block to use it.

You left it in the hangar once missiles started showing up? Is that because you wanted more challenge and didn’t want a shield that could block?

Sorry I’m just utterly lost with some of this stuff. I kind of feel like how I felt when I played my first JRPG (Bravely Default). I had no idea what a phoenix down was, or any of the “common knowledge” stuff most experienced players take for granted. Some of my knowledge from Xenoblade X, Monster Hunter and God Eater 3 seems to be transferring over here, but... only a little

@JaxonH, I haven't played the full game (or new demo), but in the old prototype demo you could expend Femto to revive fallen ally mechs.

Currently Playing:
Switch - NSMBU Deluxe
PS4 - Moss

HobbitGamer

@JaxonH Sorry, Femto is like the McGuffin element that showed up after Moonfall. It’s used for the Shift abilities, Mirage ability, and reviving an ally

The Shield Shift is the passive one, and doesn’t have a tradeoff. I always have it selected because I zip in and out of danger.

I left the Shield weapon in the hanger because it said it blocked bullets. I can dodge those. If you notice they help against missiles too, let me know! 😀

I mentioned Robotech/Macross cuz one of the artists of it did the mech designs in DxM. That show was my jam. My current Arsenal is even called “Skull One” after a main character.

@HobbitGamer
I always have it selected

Huh, so you can actively select which skills you want active after purchasing them in the skill tree?

Also, I’ve found no way to tell which armor/weapons you have equipped when selling them. I don’t want to sell something I have equipped but it doesn’t really show you. Well, I suppose the arm weapons do, but that’s it. Am I missing something?

And lastly, are the red particles the Femto? Am I supposed to hover in the particle cloud?

Also thanks for answering these questions.

edit
I figured out the Shield thingy. And the Femto.

@JaxonH No problem, you’ve answered me enough on other stuff, haha.
I don’t think it will let you sell a currently equipped item. I know it won’t let you use currently equipped items as parts in Development.

Don’t forget your ice cream buffs!
Also, co-op missions online are great to make money early on. I did a four player Immortal takedown and got 20,000c

@HobbitGamer
I checked the icecream, which seems very similar to eating a meal before going out on a hunt in MH, but even a double scoop which cost nearly 1000 credits only provided like a 3-4% increase and even then, only when out of the arsenal. Didn’t really seem worth it to me. Maybe the buffs get better as I keep playing?

Also I found this video which has been a huuuuge help understanding the game

@JaxonH Sweet, I’ll check the vid out. I got a double scoop that gave 4% boost for my Battloid. I’d imagine once you get more parts and customization those small percentages can equate to bigger gains.

Enjoying the game a lot.

This game is going to have a reputation for solid fun like Starlink whose hopes for popularity were torpedoed by middling reviews. 5-10 years from now it'll be a "hidden gem" of the Switch. Really enjoying my playthrough so far.

@Illusion Agreed, the game is just plain fun. And it’s not all boom boom blow up either. I had to defend a train last night, but enemy Arsenals kept drawing me away while another pounded the train. Took my third try before realizing I was being tricked.

Edit: I just realized how to uninstall equipment addons. It’s great

This Daemon X Machina Collector Edition imported from the UK is seriously legit.

This and the Astral Chain one together... just... wow.

Pan right for all 7 pics

I never thought I’d say this, but thank God for Nintendo of Europe and Nintendo of Japan. And region free for making it all possible. Genuinely. They’ve been killin it with the collector editions, steelcases, special releases, etc.

EU Exclusives I’ve Imported
Mario Maker 2 steelcase (EU)
Astral Chain Collector Edition (EU)
Daemon X Machina Collector Edition + steelcase (EU)
Zelda Link’s Awakening Collector Edition + steelcase (EU)
Dragon Quest XI S Limited Edition Switch v2 (JP)
Dragon Quest XI S Slime Controller (JP)
Luigi’s Mansion 3 steelcase (EU)
Pokémon Sword Shield steelcase + figurine (EU)

And I must say, the Daemon X Machina steelcase is the most beautiful Switch steelcase I have yet laid eyes upon, except perhaps the Bayonetta 1/2 steelcase or the Xenoblade Chronicles 2 steelcase.

No cloud saves sucks. Not sure why they didn’t include them.

Rather than transfer my save file to Switch Lite I just started a 2nd save file, started running through the beginning missions again. Gyro in this game with Switch Lite plays so well. And the game looks even better on that smaller screen.

@HobbitGamer About the hori DxM cons. I like them a lot. They are huge although I had to stop the muscle memory of bending my thumbs since the joysticks are full size. They are pretty responsive and I don’t have any dead zone issues. The dpad is pretty responsive as well. Buttons are clicky though as the protrude up higher. But they respond just fine. It does drain the battery a bit though. Not a lot but more than joycons. I don’t think these have a charge. I have not tried the turbo or played these in a fighting game to test deadzone.

Ok bye y’all. I’ll be back in December.
