Man, this game is great! Only played up to the part where you train with Jin that opening sequence was immense! Looking forward to diving into this more over the coming evenings.

Long Live Switch Squad!

Just started File 6. I am loving this game, so much so that I will delay my start of FFVIII when it releases tomorrow.

The combat gets better and so does the story

It’s been a while since I have last been like this but I cannot stop thinking about this game! It just ticks all the boxes for me at the moment, I can’t get the main opening theme out of head :lol:

Was thinking and it’s crazy that some of Platinums best games (this, Bayo 2, W101) are Nintendo exclusives.

I think you can replay levels as some areas you need certain legions

Another quick question - is everything under salvage just stuff to sell or do you need it for upgrades?

Yeah but do you need the salvage items for that? Stuff that says something about 'can be recycled' in the description?

Legion spoilers in that video.

Didn't know about the unchain skill and how useful it is.

Wish my image sig would work

All this talk of having to win battles quick for s rank does not seem true from my observations. I looked at my end of file report, and had 1250 time score for all the missions (some of which ended up being C ranks and some S+). The big influence on my total scores for each battle which varied greatly was my sync attack scoring, which ranged from about 300 to around 2000 (sync master bonus). So the big influencer from my point of view is how badly I am dodging and him many abilities / headshots etc I am using or getting. It seems odd that you get additional score bonus for healing up, even if arguably you fought better if you did not require them.

Only issue apart from my last post is sometimes when you go to jump forward with your legion, he moves at the last moment and you just end up falling
