@Heavyarms55 I've had one crash before and that was after the credits which made me think a system like Super Mario 64 and Ocarina of Time was implemented where you have to close the game after completion to go back into the game.

This game has a nasty habit of introducing party wiping attacks midboss battle.

What do I do about the Power Cables in Chapter 5? I can get its health down to 1/4 but then it does an attack that just wipes out every party member. Attacking the Core Robot does nothing.

I hear the gimmick of this battle is to build up your party gauge so you can do a chain attack and kill it in one strike but I fail to see how that's possible when the game literally won't let me build it up. I got a Chain attack off ONCE and it wasn't enough. I've been at this for an hour.

@AlternateButtons Keep an eye out for those attacks and evade/block them with an appropriate Art. For example, Rex has Roc with Wild Scythes and Morag has Brighid with Azure II: Judgement that grants them complete evasion during their Art. Tora also has Rigid Shield that increases his block chance.

This section is a bit useless in hindsight since you're apparently getting one-shot, but you can also elect to play more defensively and attach a healer/tank Blade to Rex. Or play some Tiger Tiger to make Poppi better to create some Mods that would really help. For example, Teamheal RAM that heals your party for x% of damage on your Special Art is really good (depending on the rank), or Flank Force RAM that can do 100%-150% extra damage per Special Art if you attack from the side, or flat out extra damage with max Affinity as a passive skill (when you have a gold connection between your Blade and Driver, also allows you to build up to level 4 Special Arts).

Chain Attacks can only one-shot bosses if you burst enough orbs. For that boss, I recommend getting two orbs on, then Chain Attack to burst at maybe 33%-50% health.

Alternatively, if you're not above using exploits, finishing a Blade Combo or using a level 4 Special Art or Chain Attack gives you invincibility frames that lets your entire party survive/block hits during the animation.

@Grumblevolcano Well I haven't finished the main story yet, so I haven't seen the credits. If it happens to me I will let you know.

Anyone else having an issue with Gorg's quest where it says you don't have space for rewards? They are key items, it's not like you can get rid of key items!

Borealis was the blade I was thinking about when looking at the sihouette, and while he isn't actually a nopon, he does have the nopon skill which allowed me to open a few of those locks in Argentum. I got him via a legendary core crystal

@Heavyarms55 I just walked out of Torigoth. That's it. I wasn't in a battle or anything. Just exiting the city and it just crashed. lost 3 hours of work. Had to put it down for a bit after that. Playing stardew and fire emblem warriors right now for a little while.

Went ahead and bought this game today, went against myself not to buy anything until MH World but the struggle was too much.

Any tips for a newcomer to the series? I’ve just got onto chapter two (crash landed on the Titan) enjoying what I’ve seen so far, a lot more than I’m enjoying Breath of the Wild.

@Imerzion As fellow newcomer to the series, I would say that keep in the skills with extra stuff in them, like knockback, launch, break, topple are good. Even if they do nothing else, those are really, really useful.

Then I guess just screenshot and pay attention to tutorial, and you can also throw questions here if you have some!

@AlternateButtons You might have already defeated the boss by now but here are couple of things that might help. Build up your party meter before the battle. I think it stays at least somewhat filled between battles. Remember that you can use a chain attack even if there are no orbs circling around the enemy. I tend to forget it and there have been couple of situations where I could have killed an enemy even without orbs if I remembered to use it but I didn't and ended up dying. Not the greatest tips but maybe they can provide some help.

I programmed a simple tool that copies all Switch screenshots from an SD card and places them to folders according to the game:

I have not played Xenoblade Chronicles but I have watched many videos online and I will get the first one for the 3DS. But this new art style is "interesting", I am talking about the girl that is next to the main hero in the posters and I guess in the party in the game. Why is she like a hentai looking wh***?
I am pretty sure this is a new art direction from the other games right? At least I think so.

@Zuljaras Because it‘s a jrpg lol. You could dress the cast in XC1 in some pretty revealing clothes, too, and in XCX as well, I think, didn‘t play that game all that much. As far as art style goes, it‘s definitely the best out of all three titles in the series. It actually allows for actually emoting this time around.

Do not reveal this until beating the game! Talking about the art style, it‘s VERY obvious they imported Scientist Klaus‘s model out of the first game and just rez‘ed it up a bit. Those eyes, jeez. Makes me kinda glad they didn‘t show XC1‘s party fight Zanza, like I had hoped when I heard Shulk speak.
