Why is the launcher's range so short?
I just started playing and I'm having trouble launching enemies in the air. I'm standing RIGHT NEXT to them and 90% of the time it doesn't do anything.

What pad are you using? The 360 pad left stick sometimes gave me this kind of problems. I'm using a USB PS2-like pad and that kind of fixed most of my moveset issues. However, this sounds like something else:

Did you purchase the Ether Saber basic skills to incorporate those to your move set? Those will let you bounce enemies three times in the air before launching them against others. Equip the STR boost for further damage for greater effect as well. Then punch-punch, press up while punching and start launching them mid air like pinballs.

Hope that helps!

I don't think the controller's a problem, I'm using a logitech F... something, that's similar to a PS2 controller.

I only have ether saber, I'm still not very far in the game. What's a good way to start off a combo? I thought I could just walk up to them and start with the launcher, but like I said it almost never works.

Well, let me see. You have a basic three-hit combo, this will make the enemies fly after that. You can softly press jump and then launch a flying kick at them. There is also double tapping left or right for a dash slash and to reach the other side of the screen faster. Once you finish the first opening days and switch stages you'll have enough mana to unlock most of the basic skills. Consider equipping some special skills too, there area couple that can launch enemies upwards until they hit maximum altitude.

Ether Saber 2 lets you bounce enemies very high but it's a bit tricky to achieve. Once you get the full set of basic skills you can 3-combo an enemy in the air and then launch it or bounce it against something else. You can also get the Just Revenge special skill if you want to get up close and personal: performing a Just Revenge will literally destroy whatever enemy was about to hit you.

Ah, also check the "Preferred skill setups" thread too since it has a lot of info and nice builds!

Oh, one more, if you have 2-4 enemies close, you can flying kick one and have it hit all the others at the same time by repeatedly kicking the first one in a joyful festival of enemy bouncing. That feels really good, heh!
