I would say the revised dialogue of the PSP version is a lot more natural sounding even if the performances aren't stand out in any way.  I do agree with your assessment that the dialogue for Dracula is markedly superior in the PSP version.

For the last month or so since moving it to another room, my computer was having issues.  I decided that I would get a new one and build it myself.  Well, this past weekend (for me Wednesday and Thursday are my weekend), I put it together.  I have to say I am pleased with my handiwork.  There's still some issues to iron out, but it's up and running.  I'm not going to lie.  I felt a sense of accomplishment in putting it together successfully.

Yes.  The patch is free.

I am waiting for it to be released on either the PS4 or PC.  I won't be buying a Switch just for this game no matter how appealing it is.

It's a Nintendo-published game so you'll be waiting a long time
Damn.  I thought Square Enix published the game.  I guess that means I'll have to wait until the next hardware revision of the Switch.

I don't play Grand Theft Auto for the same reason I want nothing to do with this game.  I find the premise offensive and want nothing to do with the game.  Essentially, when it comes to gaming, I want to play the hero, not the villain.  Also, for me, as someone who has family who've been the victim of child molesters, I find the idea of a game that allows you to be one absolutely disgusting.  I simply can't accept the premise of this game for that reason.  The developers, if they wanted to release the game in the West should've eliminated the underage character from the game.

This is especially so when I think all rapists and child molesters should be executed*.  As far as I am concerned such crimes are on par with premeditated murder and should be punished as such.

As a very quick aside into politics, I support the death penalty on philosophical, but not practical grounds.  As far as I am concerned, if you commit premeditated rape, murder or sexually molest a child, you deserve death.  On the other hand, our justice system isn't perfect and under no circumstances should an innocent person be executed for a crime they didn't commit.  Unfortunately our justice system sometimes convicts the wrong people and so long as there is a non-zero chance of an innocent being executed, the most severe punishment our system can mete out should be life in prison without the possibility of parole or pardon.

Back to gaming.  As far as I'm concerned, h/ecchi games are kind of pointless.  Seriously, I don't see the point when there's pornography and erotica.

You're entitle to that opinion, but this game has the player crossing the moral event horizon by molesting a clearly underage player.  As far as I'm concerned, Sony is totally justified in not approving the game over on this side of the pond.  If anything, I am annoyed this game was even made.  I have no problem with gaming addressing controversial content, but having the player engage in clearly unethical behavior is beyond the pale.

There's a part of me that's disgusted with the localization company to the point that I will never purchase any of the games they localize in protest over choosing to localize this trash.

Yeah, Aeolus, it is indeed a sad day for The Legendary Zoltan. I can read Japanese just fine, so I could play it if I want, but I was hoping to play it in my native language anyway. I'll probably download the Japanese version at some point, but all this censorship of art from foreign countries is a massive bummer. I once heard a dude on YouTube say that Western gaming is dead because thanks to all the censorship and cries for forced diversity and all that, nobody is actually just making the game they want to make. And now I'm starting to agree. Thanks for trying to cheer me up with the hot springs RPG, though. ^_^
The game has an underage character getting molested.  Honestly, were it up to me, I would look up every single person involved in the localization  of this game and hand over their names to the authorities.  I would rather pedophile garbage remain in Japan.

I fucking hate financial penalties in RPG's.

I have no problem with Sony rejecting a game that has lolis.  Seriously don't have a problem with it.  Would I be outraged if the game was approved?  Probably not.  On the other hand, there is a certain creepy factor over adult gamers lusting after under aged female characters.  The only people who should be lusting after underaged teenage girls are underaged teenage boys and other underaged teenage girls.

I don't dislike the hoverboard, although you get it far too late. I know the days of getting boats and airships which gradually open more of the map are long-gone, but I feel like, if implemented well, the hoverboard could fill that role. In theory it somewhat did by making travel quicker and opening new areas, but it felt a bit like an after-thought (not dissimilar to using the elemental abilities in Zestiria: that felt like such wasted potential).
Frankly, I think going pseudo open world is what hurt the dungeon and field designs of the Tales series.  I think the best thing the developers can do is to go back to a separate navigable world map with distinct dungeon and village zones. 

I wonder why wearing clothes is so difficult for so many female RPG protagonists...

And even when they wear clothes, they're ludicrously skin-tight or have "boob windows" or something ridiculous, right? 

Septerra Core seems to mostly buck that trend.  Maya wears full armor.  Okay, so Led (a girl who's maybe 18-20) wears a tank top and there is a brothel in the game with scantily clad prostitutes, but that's about it. 

As for a new Tales of... game, I don't expect too much from that series beyond a fun-to-play, pulpy, summer-blockbuster style romp.  I just hope that it bucks the trend I complain the most about in modern gaming- miniscule text fonts in dialogue boxes with no way to make them bigger.  If I'm allowed complete wishful thinking, I also want to see someone other than Motoi Sakuraba composing the music.  I think Sakuraba is an uninspired hack.  He farts out so much music that it all sounds boring, generic, repetitive, recycled, and completely unmemorable to me.
While I do agree with you that his music is mostly forgettable, it is at least nice to listen to for the most part.  Having said that, though, I would definitely echo your desire to see someone new get a chance at composing a Tales game's score.  Yasunori Mitsuda or the woman behind the Wild Arms scores come to mind.

If she's wearing a cape, then she won't be naked.

Congrats on becoming a very, very happy (but still paranoid) MonCapitan 2002!
I am still paranoid.

I lost interest in this game the moment it was mentioned that it announced as a first person game.  I dislike FP games on principle.  Sure, I'll give them a shot, but for the most part, I prefer gaming in the third person.
