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

:O it's been patched? how did they fix it? does it disconnect if you try it, did they put an extra section of fence up, or did they fix it so the Lakitu doesn't screw up and put you farther in the race?

@G4L: the sidequest that i was referring to came from Satorl Marsh, so don't worry — you can't have missed it yet if you're not that far along. :3 It's part of a line of quests (do one, then talk to the same people again and another is available — that kind of thing), toward the end of the line in fact, so don't worry about not seeing it available immediately because you'll have to do a few quests in the line first. :3

OK SPOILER TIME

ok wtf is up with this game and GIANT EFFING SPIDERS OUT OF NOWHERE? ffs first i 'bout had a heart attack back when i first discovered the Daksha Shrine... wanting to say you had to pick up a necklace or something from there, and then when you get close enough to grab it that named spider comes crawling up from the ravine behind the shrine and eats you alive if you're not quick enough to just run like hell. then tonight i'm doing the line of quests in the Marsh that takes you through Exile Fortress... I'm overleveled for the area (just doing some sidequesting to gain XP for that fight on the Great Glacier because Mumkhar's about five levels over me... grr), but i go to place the Giant's Mirror on the altar and damned if a giant spider doesn't just crawl up from outta nowhere. granted, this one's just a normal spawn and it didn't auto-attack because i'm overleveled, but still, i damn near just pissed myself. this is a great game, but beware if you hate eight-legged surprises D: D: D:

I don't remember if it's honest-to-goodness law in Japan or not, but the noise is there to protect other people who may not want their pictures taken at the time (a locker room, for example). that noise is there for the protection of anyone else around you, and whether you like it or not, it's going to be there. No way would Nintendo/Sony/whoever remove it or [willingly] allow it to be disabled, not with the popularity of upskirt photos and other skeeziness that would be made all the more prevalent if there were no noise to alert other people to a potential problem. Sorry to disappoint!

@G4L: I've got everything from the Empress set except for the headwear (multiples thereof, in fact — two sets of greaves, five arms, two plates, two leggings). I'm afraid I don't know exactly which enemies drop what, but if they were Mechon, I battled a lot of those guys back in the Bionis Leg/Ether Mine areas (i fell off a ledge and died quite a few times while working my way up the Ether Mine area, haha). :3
