Against the odds
We choose to fight
Blossom Dance!

Dunban is awesome and the 30% agility from no clothes combined with agility gems makes him almost unstoppable.

Took me a while to realize how useful
Code:
Melia
is.

Some thoughts on the story (don't read if you haven't past Prison Island):

Code:
The identity of the mechon with claws was obvious from the start.
Fiora caught me by surprise, I hope they have a good explanation for this, I assumed they buried her body,
Her mech looks like something straight out of zone of the enders.
I'm enjoying the story a lot.

This game exceeded my expectations in every possible way. I wonder how much I have left. Did anyone here finish it yet?

Code:
Did you see those smaller mechon run towards where Fiora was after she got hit? I guess those dragged her body away.

Her return didn't come as a surprise though.
It's one of those plottwist we've seen in pretty much every Xeno-game.
Her mechon reminded me of Elly's omnigear...

I just got my copy today. Not too far in yet, but enjoying it so far.

The heart-to-hearts are a bit annoying though. As, at least with the ones I've seen so far, I'm basically guessing answers.

Oh, and does anyone know why there are often "!" marks on the mini-map, but 50% of the time there's nothing there?

Code:
They never mention that her body disappeared, you'd have thought they would mention the mechon took her body since it would be a weird thing to do.
Yeah, it's also very similar to Elly's gear, I was going to mention that, it's definitely intentional.
To be honest, I'm not a big fan of this kind of plot twist. When you kill a character it should stay dead.
You get to do this very dramatic scene to move the player by killing a character and then a few hours later you go "oh wait, she's alive lol gotcha".
Unfortunately it happens a lot, I was hoping it wouldn't happen here.

You can ignore them without consequence if you want to.
The "!" represents NPC's with sidequests.

Yeah, I got that about the "!". I just can't understand why I lot of the time there's no one where the mini-map marks it. Does it show up if, for example, a person will only appear there at a specific time of day?

That never happened to me. Maybe they're on a different floor than you?

There was a couple in town I just couldn't find. Weird. Guess I'll go take another look next time I play. Maybe I'm just blind? :P

If the "!" is there, that means so is the person. Some of them are in REALLY Akward places. One guy I was trying to find had the same colour clothes as the wall he was standing against and I just walked past him 50 times. An other was standing on a bridge above my head but I didn't even know there was a bridge up there.

Heh, that's probably my issue then!

Found this on gaf:

- In the Item screen, a blue "!" on top of an item means that item will be useful in a future sidequest. A red "!" means it is usable in a current quest. Save it!

- In the menu, under "Items", "Collectopedia", you have a sort of scrap book where you can put one of each item you've found. As you find more items, you get rewards in the form of equipment.

I knew about the first but figured some of you might not. Didn't know you get equipment from the collectopedia though.

Most people probably know this already but if you trade for an item and give the other person something a lot more valuable, they will give you an extra item that is not on their trade list. I wish the affinity chart had an option to see what each person is trading.
