Hold on. Pants have been at a perpetual state 00's levels of bagginess since the 90's. What you don't see anymore is people where their clothes inside out like a douchebag.

I suppose that the next Tales of game wont be fully named till they're Zest fully named.


Edit: http://www.siliconera.com/2013/08/12/tales-of-link-tales-of-ansis-tales-of-jin-yeah-more-tales-trademarks/

Meanwhile, even more names get trademarked. Although in this case I suspect that these might be more useful in regards to a crossover than a full fledged Tales of game (especially that first one).

Gentlemen (and Dice), I believe the take away you're looking for is that Squeenix should be banned from making compilations altogether (actually they should've been banned back when they ran the Mana series into the ground with that awful World of Mana compilation or similarly awful FFVII compilation; but hindsight is 20/20 and those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it, and so on, blah blah blah....).

@Dice: Link having pink hair in ALttP was a design choice but there's also the use of pink hair as some sort of variation for blond hair (sometimes brown hair).

It was also due to a console limitation choice, as in they needed to share the pallets that consist of Link's constant human colors (as he swaps pallets when he gets new armor) and his bunny form.

Welp, so much for being a direct sequel. They're changing the character designs and everything.


That...was sarcasm right?

Not so much as just pointing out the extent of the move away from the 'sequel' the game originally claimed to be.

The only reason why this is bothering me was that I was hoping to see somebody other than Ganon show up to be the bad guy this time, and a direct sequel would have had to write around Ganon's previous defeat like pretty much every other direct sequel they've done.

Although granted, having to fight LttP's Ganon all over again is not a bad thing by any means as the fight is probably the best fight against him in the series.

Also I liked the character designs of LttP (also, I still like how the Oracles' Link has the same shield design as LttP's Link but that was one of the first things changed for LBW's Link).

Still, the Dark World looks fantastic.

I like Inigo. On my first playthrough he was basically a little clone of Donnel with better stats. The two of them being the only characters with legendary weapons since they had 50+ luck.

To be fair to him, of all the sons, only he, Owain, and Brady can obtain Galeforce at all (and Morgan, but Morgan can do pretty much anything anyways) and the latter two are more magic oriented than he is. Basically, he's probably the best kid combat potential wise outside of Morgan, even though stat cap modifier wise he's pretty much the worst given that his mother has a flat 0 to overall stat mods (she gets 1 point in Skill and Speed and loses 1 point in Def and Res) and with either The Vaike or Gaius as his dad his modifiers will sum up to a meager +7 (solely due to being a child). That said he probably wants either Frederick or Chrom as a father to either get more classes to use his eventual Axefaire on (with Frederick as a dad Inigo will have access to every axe using class in the game outside of Overlord) or Rightful King boosting his skill activation rates (as he will have a lot of skills with activation rates). He just has no use for S-ranking the Avatar outside of passing down Rightful King to Morgan.

Also, I was wrong earlier. The Gregor x Olivia pairing is the absolute worst pairing in the game. The only thing Inigo gains from Gregor is a sole +1 keeping him from having the least statistical advantage possible and nothing else. Even Frederick x Sully nets Kjelle a net positive of +3 on top of her child gains. Hell, both Nowi and Tiki sport an overall +5 to their stat cap modifiers making Gregor!Inigo 3 points away from statistically being equal to a first genner and with nothing but a really late and optional join time to show for it (seriously, his Paralogue is only behind Gerome in enemy level).

Sorry for the double sperg, it took awhile but I remembered what his statistical abnormality was.

And its Inigo's birthday. Cervantes, you killed his father, prepare to die!

Anyways, he gets three great class trees in Mercenary, Myrmidon, and Barbarian as well as his pick of his mother's skills Galeforce. He's one of the three kids who can inherit Royal Weapon from Chrom and is one of the better users of it. Additionally Olivia produces the most physically oriented children outside of a Strength/Defense heavy Avatar. If his father is Virion and he took Lancefaire from his mother he can be a full on weapons master (although no Healtouch for staffs). He makes for a good son out of Frederick and Kellam. Ricken also has potential to be a good father for him. Gregor x Olivia is tied for the worst pairing in the game along with Frederick x Sully as neither child will inherit more than stat modifiers and a free skill from their fathers. No potential father will secure him an additional 9 classes beyond his mother's inheritance (not including DLC). Unfortunately his stat modifiers do nothing extraordinary for him or Morgan. He's ultimately a very solid child but nothing spectacular outside of his potential class screwage.

And suddenly we see why they went and numbered this. They would've gotten to Scorpion King levels of offshoots if they hadn't.

Also lol Squeenix, for planning a direct sequel to a game you've been sitting on and have yet to actually release since 2006. Looks like they've got enough stuff on the cutting room floor to make a whole new game out of again.

But that's such a common fantasy trope, though.  Not just in video games but in movies too.  How many "teen beat" movies feature the whole "cute childhood friend who was under your nose all along" plotline? 

Yeah, perhaps the "childhood friend" thing is played out, but it will never die.  Especially in the realm of love adventures.  Every love adventure needs the trophy girl, the childhood friend, the moe klutz, the tsundere, and the wildcard (sometimes it's an older woman.)

Then again, JRPG romances always end badly.  Think about how many JRPG protagonists still have both parents.  When a JRPG couple hooks up, one WILL die. 

On the other hand I would like the "childhood friend" thing to not be the constant winner when it comes to multiple love interests. It was only amusing in DQV because the game gave you the final say on the matter and, at least in the original version, the game punished you for not choosing the "childhood friend" by taking a dump on her (which is amusing in the cruelty option department).

And the same goes for the first girl (who are typically the "childhood friend" even if they don't start out as one).

Adol-Dogi in Ys.

Come on, you know they're into each other.  Why else is Adol always completely oblivious to the affections of all the girls who fall in love with him?  And why are Adol and Dogi always adventuring together...

Unfortunately, it was never meant to be as Dogi is far too in love with his own wall busting abilities.

Also considering that Adol is the one who wrote of his adventures, there might be the possibility of an exaggeration or two slipping in there.

Tales of Get!

Now I just need a PS3 and I'll be kosher.

Everyone says that, but the actress is naturally Asutralian. And if you listen to her speak in interviews, she sounds exactly like Vanille.  There's not a lot of switching accents because that is her accent.  Georgia's adorable, her interviews are great fun to watch.

I think its because she tries to not have an Australian accent at times, which is silly because, come on, she comes from a land down under.

Wow, they're actually localizing this (and not the strictly inferior original version to boot).

Well then, lets go three for three and hope that somebody brings over a Queen's Blade/Gate game (preferably Gate, but I'll accept Blade since Gate does involve licensing hell).
