@Wheels: With rubbing alcohol and some glues (like sticker glues) you need to soak the glue-y area with it, and then it comes off quite easily.

that said, for all cleaning intents and purposes, clear oil is oil is oil. you probably could've used baby oil if you had any (though olive oil is usually more common in a house nowadays i think) or potpourri/fragrance oil (but that'd be a pain to clean up, and your game box would be perma-scented lol) and it would've had the same effect. :3

Actually, it has — i'm sure i've locked a thread like this before. The problem is that signatures and avatars can be changed with ease, whereas if a user feels they're being picked on for their username, it's much harder for them to change it. Please, let's not with the commenting on others' usernames :3

do you not use olive oil in your home? or you could also try rubbing alcohol, depending on what type of glue we're talking about...

I find it funny that your playing the informant, while you're playing the game more slowly than most. No trying to be hostile. I honestly am just amused by it.

i've been helping people out too and i keep getting stuck myself (right now i'm stuck at a UM in Sword Valley, i need to grind about four levels grr). Do you find me amusing as well? :/

Hey thanks a lot! That helped me not only get through that battle, but know I somewhat know a little more about whats happening when I mash those buttons! LOL

lol, i'm sitting at 51 with at least as many hours into the game and i still button-mash sometimes myself. it's easy to get flustered when you're in a tough battle, but if you can keep your cool and focus on what you're doing, you'll be okay. you don't lose anything if you die and you'll just respawn from the nearest landmark anyway. :3

You seem to forget one thing: Nintendo is not Sony or Microsoft

Them being a different company isnt an excuse for something other companies they compete with can do.

how is it not a valid excuse? they're working on their own e-stuff, we've already seen quite a bit of improvement in the eShop over the original Wii and DSi Shops. surely by the next generation we'll see DS games available, but i can't see it happening before — not when they're focused on getting 3DS games available for dual download/retail releasing (like the next Mario game, i think i read that was supposed to be a dual-front release). i'd rather see them focus on that than have them work on getting games I already played before and/or still own up as downloadables. save that for next gen.

I'd also like to know if there's anything I should know about, before I enter the Sartorl Marsh. My party is only at level 33, so will I be safe entering that area?

'only at level 33' pff — you'll be fine. most of the daytime mobs are in the 20s iirc (beware nightfall, though — that's when the high-level stuff shows up). in fact, you're so overleveled for your first time through the area that those damn quadwings probably won't autoattack you... god i hated birds by the time i was done getting through the Marsh, haha D:

it worked fine for me last night. i'd chalk it up to congestion, as it was unusually busy (compared to how it'd been a few months back when i played it last, anyway). it'll probably settle down again in a few days.

@paburrows: see those sections of glowing blue bar up in the upper left-hand portion of your screen during battle? that's your 'party gauge', and it gradually fills every time you hit the enemy (a common tactic when having trouble with a particularly strong enemy is to go fight some lesser mobs, get your Party Gauge up, and then have that Chain Attack ready to go against the strong enemy). when all three sections are filled, that's when the 'chain attack' becomes available, and you'll see those glowing blue lines linking your party members on-screen. when you see those lines appear, put your cursor on whichever-character-you're-maining's Talent Art (the big center ability), and then scroll down with the d-pad until the blue triangle symbol appears, then press A to use it.

time will slow down at that point, and all of your Arts will be available for you to choose from (regardless if they were in cooldown mode or not). when fighting Mechon Shulk should be your main, so immediately go for one of his pink sword-looking abilities (i forget what they're called, both inflict Break), then go for Reyn's Wild Down (the green sword-looking one that inflicts Topple). at that point the both of you (and anyone else in your party) can go ham on any Mechon together, regardless of whether you've used Enchant or not (idk if you have that ability yet though, it's been a while since i was there lol).

you're still really early on in the game, though, so don't worry so much about it. I didn't really get the hang of and start using the chain attack regularly myself until later on in the game, so if you manage to squeak through this area you're in and still don't have the hang of it, you'll still be all right. Xenoblade tends to make you aware of new obstacles and/or techniques long before you actually have to avoid or use them. :3
