2101  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Tales of Vesperia - Special Edition on: August 05, 2008, 10:57:31 PM
At the very least, all that blue is going to make the game stick out in the Xbox 360 side.  Maybe that's intentional.

Shocking new gameplay footage!

err, I still prefer the keyboard and mouse because I literally can't play FPS with a console controller. I'm that bad with a controller. Plus, I got a comfy chair.

I do play DMC3 and DMC4 with a controller for my computer. ;)

You can keep your PC gaming. ;)

I'm also awesome at Civilization Revolution.  Awwwwww, that's not on PC, is it.  My apologies!

And I'd rather game while lazing on my sofa with a wireless controller staring at a 46" screen instead of hunching over a keyboard and mouse.

The special edition version of the game comes in a SteelBook case with its own unique cover art by longtime Tales character designer Kosuke Fujishima. The packaging itself is really high-quality, but what’s inside is even more exciting. We’ve combed through the music archives at Tales Studio in Japan and put together a bonus 10th anniversary soundtrack CD that will be included in every special edition package. Covering some of the series’ musical highlights from past and present, the CD contains 25 tracks, with 14 songs from Tales of Vesperia, two from Tales of Phantasia, two from Tales of Destiny, four from Tales of Symphonia and three from Tales of the Abyss.

The special edition version of Tales of Vesperia will be available in limited quantities exclusively through select retailers for a suggested retail price of $69.99. Tales of Vesperia ships to retailers on August 26, so check back here soon for more information about the game!

This is totally mine.

If you buy a PS3 now, you will be limited to the following RPGs from now to the end of the year:

Enchanted Arms
Disgaea 3 (August)
Rise of the Argonauts (3rd quarter)
Fallout 3 (4th quarter)
Valkyria Chronicles (November)

Versus a 360:
Enchanted Arms
Phantasy Star Universe
Blue Dragon
Eternal Sonata
Mass Effect
Lost Odyssey
Tales of Vesperia (August)
Infinite Undiscovery (September)
Rise of the Argonauts (3rd quarter)
Fable 2 (October)
Fallout 3 (4th quarter)
The Last Remnant (November)

I think the answer is pretty clear.  The 360 beats the PS3 in both quantity and quality in the RPG genre... and any other genre for that matter.  I recommend owning both because each platform has their exclusives, but get a 360 first.  Get a PS3 later.

I'm jumping on the bandwagon and saying card-based battle systems blow.

Getting Tales of Vesperia, Infinite Undiscovery, Fable 2, Valkyria Chronicles, and The Last Remnant.

Of the list, Infinite Undiscovery, Fable 2, and Valkyria Chronicles are the three I'm looking forward to the most.

I remember Kadamose since someone mentioned him.  I could not for the life of me believe that guy was for real.  I don't say this lightly given my psychology and counseling background, but he's one dude I'd commit to the wacky shack without hesitation.

Speaking of Kadamose, he's still around in a sense... just not here.  It's been a few months since I last spoke with him, but JD and I were the only two people he seemed to get along with.  Everyone else seemed to be a target in some fashion, and most people would take the bait.  I'd say he's one of the earliest internet trolls.

I'll say this much.  I don't miss modding forums one bit.  Not that I really did anything... I mostly just sat back and let everyone go at it.  Well, until it was banning time for dumb people.

Reflecting back on my mannerisms, I've definitely mellowed out over the years.  I'm less... confrontational, but I'm definitely a lot more sarcastic.

Since Angelo mentioned the sigs... I think Mike still has them on his hard drive since he showed me a lot of old stuff on his computer when I visited last year.  Maybe I should shoot him an email and ask him to post all those staff RPGBoard sigs in here just so we can have a good laugh.

Looking back at this thread, it's funny how way off I was on FFXIII.

Ultima 2. This wasn't by choice, mind, as it was in the UC with everything else (Except for the Underworld and Worlds of Aventure games which were actually good).

It's not so much that it's BAD, because none of the first three ultimas were that great. It's just that it's easily the retardedest game in the Ultima series. I can't really EXPLAIN why. Just go look at some city maps and read about it. 90% of the game doesn't really serve a purpose, basically.

I loved how you had to BUY hit points in the first two Ultima games.  Enemies could attack you diagonally but you couldn't, they could move diagonally but you couldn't, you constantly had to buy food which drained stupidly fast... all sorts of nonsense to drag the game out as long as possible.  It was like an MMORPG with considerably less plot and considerably less content.

I concur with your assessment of Ultima 2.  I didn't like it when I was a kid, and I sure as hell wouldn't like it now.  Ultima 4 was the first in the series that I genuinely liked, but I could never beat it since the dungeon disk was corrupted, so half the dungeons didn't work right.
