    I've done nothing with the pouch stuff. I seem to have survived it, it's triggered a loading screen but it's been on this for about a minute now which can't be good. Looks like I may need to reset it.

    Yep looks like the fuckers crashed ffs.

    Went back and did it again, some epic cutscenage.....and then another tough battle lol. Dinner beckoned, I'll go back to it.

    Can you go into a battle with all three bars already built up or do you always have to build it up?
    You can build it up in other battles, and then carry it into bigger fights. It's helpful, but it does slowly go down between fights so you have to be swift about it. Can be helpful to have some revives ready to go.

    Pouch items can really help, and got me through some of the earlier tough fights. Getting x% boosts to various skills can be invaluable. Just fling some stuff in there.

    Played a bit more tonight, really enjoying it and like the first game, I love the localisation.
    What a breath air to have funny, varied expressions and varied accents.

    Now and again Stone ZL flashes up and I hit it but don't think I have anyone to build on that?

    It's hard to create full Blade Combos until you have more ones to switch around to, so I wouldn't be worrying about it. You won't have a (mostly) full kit of abilities until chapter 4 or so.

    ok, cheers, I'll ignore it for the time being.
    Glad I got the advice about the timing of triggering arts.

    @Armoured_Bear

    Itís part of the combo.

    Have a look at the top right of the screen. When you do a level 1 special either with any character eg wind, you can combo into the next part by another character doing a level 2 special in another element. And once youíve done the level 2 you can finish the combo with a level 3 special in the next element after that.

    The option to press zl or rl just lets you trigger another party member to do the next phase of the combo.

    It is all dependent on them having the right element blade equipped.

    So I have to so a L1 Combo and then let another character do it then it comes back to me again, providing the sequence of elects works out?

    Im well into chapter 8 now and spent a good deal of time exploring the locale. Also taking a trip elsewhere to beat up some monsters from past areas to unlock affinity charts.

    Loving the new ability!

    Oh and am so hooked to the story now! 94 hrs in...

    @Armoured_Bear

    It doesnít have to be another character. If you hit eg fire level 1 special, and can hit fire level 2 special before the bar runs out and THEN hit fire level 3 special before the second bar runs out you can do it all with your own single character.

    You might have to swap between blades as quick as it lets you to make that happen.

    Iíve often done level 1 special, let another character do level 2 and then done level 3 myself.

    Imo the problem with most of the advanced stuff, is that it's hard to practice using it. Most enemies die before you can pull one full combo off, let alone two or three. It's great for bosses and unique enemies, but not when you have multiple little targets to focus on. Which is most fights in the game.

    Up to chapter 4 now, my god about 30 mins of cutscenes at the end lol. Which is fine but may be a pain on the move.

    It's funny how developers will spend time on perfecting tiddy physics, yet leave things like hair unrealistic and immobile. They have their priorities I guess.

    Perun looks like she's working the tiddy tassels with a spin to be right then a spin to the left, Elvira style.

    It was the scene in the inn, that's all I'm saying for risk of spoilers. I've not even come across those other characters yet lol.

    If you'll excuse the pun

    Whoever worked on the boob physics for Perun deserves a medal.

    I just finished Chapter 2, what a fantastic game.
    The cut-scenes, characters, voice acting and story are hugely enjoyable.
    Adds so much to the great combat and stunning world to explore.

    Good to hear, a bit better image quality and frame rate and it would be my ideal RPG.

    I'm gutted cause I was saving up all my core crystals so i wouldn't have to sit through hours of unskipable cutscenes watching them open, and i am capped at 99 so everytime i pick one up now i am wasting them, but its sooooo boring watching them each time.

    I am 90 hours in but have barely used any core crystals because of this.

    @Tait0 I'm also saving crystals until the update, but you can't let the poor buggers go to waste!

    As I said above, if you wait for the Blade to appear and hit pause you can then skip the rest. Its not perfect, but it saves a lot of the nause.

    Wife's away today, so this will get played until the early hours.
