Hi, I'm a filthy casual and the only RPG I have ever played is skyrim. Why is the combat system in xenoblade chronicles so weird? Can I control aiming/shooting at all, out of combat, or in it?
Right now, it just shoots and reloads automatically.
It really is on you though. Not every third person game is a third person shooter.
There was a previous game in this series that was on Wii and 3Ds, plus plenty of time for you to find gameplay footage of this.
You made huge assumptions with little to no relevant information and with a poor frame of reference. You have only yourself to blame.
It's an ATB system where you can freely control your position in battle. Is this hard to understand?
