Popped Xenoblade in. I had played it for an hour or so when I first got it(April?) and haven't touched it since. I've just been daunted by the time requirement. Anyway, I said screw it, and am now playing. It took me a little while to get used to it all again.
Is there really no manual attack for battles? I was looking for it in the menus, but saw no "manual" option anywhere.
The game has such a great "feel" to it. Great music, too. We'll see how far I get into it.
