I feel dumb for wasting your time in asking this, but would you be willing to clarify real-quick exactly what a "break gauge" is to my clueless dumb@$$? x_x
Not sure what they're called now. When first implemented, they were called "Break Gauges". Basically, they're the "stagger meter" you fill, or what-have-you. Do specific actions in battle, it fills a meter, when the meter is full, you get to do a ton of damage to the enemy. Usually, this stops the enemy from acting for a set period of time, but not always. Sometimes, it's your "limit break" as well. Depends on implementation, but it amounts to the same thing. Fill a meter, do a ton of damage in short order once it's full.
Final Fantasy 13 is probably the last game I've played that had them in it, but I've never really enjoyed them in any game I've played.
