I'm on a Tales of kick. I'm currently playing through Tales of Phantasia and Tales of Vesperia (and I just ordererd Tales of the Abyss). I'm about 7 or 8 hours into Tales of Phantasia, I just destroyed the demon that was controlling the Prince of Alvanista. I'm not sure where to go next, though. In Tales of Vesperia, I'm 12 hours in, and I just finished saving Dangrest and now I'm investigating Kol Miev (or whatever).

GREAT! So I have that to look forward to, lol. And yeah, I'm a couple of acts into Mercedes storyline. At first I HATED her but now I am loving that bow. Still unreal how cheap some of the deaths are though, I cannot imagine this game if there was a expert/hardcore mode...or is there? I never paid attention when I started it...I do like the game so far though, it can just be seriously annoying!!!

There is a hard mode, but the difference is hardly noticeable. Enemies take more hits and you take more damage and that's it.
In my vision, I see that one of us is going to KO the other.

It's the times, Yoda. No one wants long reviews. All reviews have to be 140 characters or less.

But. But I love long reviews... Do I have to rage again, Mongoose?

Started up Ys I & II Chronicles for the psp. I wondered for awhile why I was playing this awful game. Then I finally gained a level and bought some armor/weapons. Now it's kinda fun.
I played the TG-CD version SO long ago. I enjoyed it at the time mostly due to the amazing music and cinemas. This new version has some good tunes(I love the cd that came with it!), and some really nice cinemas, but I kinda miss the voices. I know it's cheaper not to do them, but I really feel that the game is missing something without voice acting.

Clocking in at just 95 characters, this is just shy of being a prime candidate for a novel.

Witcher 2 is beating me like a red-headed stepchild.  Anybody else finding the game way too difficult?

Very to the point and share the same sentiments. I just elaborated more about it instead.

Yeah, I'm still in the prologue and I keep getting massacred in the courtyard fight. The game doesn't exactly ease you in, it throws you into the deep end without explaining how the combat works at all. It was something of a huge difficulty spike to go from fighting groups of three weak soldiers to a group of six or seven, two of which are heavily armed.

I can see what they were trying to do with the combat, it's a bit like Batman AA, but so far it's nowhere near as fluid as that and the camera is a bit messy. Hopefully it improves once you get some abilities.
