You two are adorable

No need to be condescending.

I'm partial to

Code:
Ludger's Victor costume, myself.  I can't see myself ever taking it off.  If only he had an alternate Formal hairstyle that was pure black, though.

I don't agree, I like Vanille quite a bit more than much of the cast.

See, that's opinions for you.

It might not be a good idea to turn this thread into a "why I like/didn't like FFXIII."

The FF hate has always baffled me a bit. I've yet to play a main FF title I didn't like (to varying degrees).  I even liked XIII enough to run through it 3 times.  Does this make me a fanboy?

Not necessarily.  You like what you like, don't let the opinions of others change that. You like XIII? Good for you!

Being a fanboy would be completely denying any and all flaws in a game or refusing to listen to criticism.  Among other things.

Supposedly it's impossible for

Code:
Our Ludger to follow Victor's path exactly, as events didn't transpire exactly as they did in the prime dimension.

I believe one of the Japanese-only media elaborates on Victor's motives.  I don't own it personally, but from what I've read,
which admittedly may not be accurate,  Ludger was protecting Elle from Bisley and the party not being supportive of Ludger protecting Elle that were
the factors that triggered the major difference.  It's supposed to parallel Ludger's mother dying protecting Ludger from Julius, methinks.

= omg, 3 party members isn't enough for the amount of experimenting I wanted to do.  I love everyone!!!!

I have yet to play the game, but are you saying the battle party is 3 characters (from 4 in Xillia)?

No.  You're stuck with Ludger as one character your first time through, so it's Ludger+3 others.  On NG+ and beyond you can choose whoever.

The whole Milla thing -

Code:
made me surprisingly bitter towards the party for the second half of the game.  While I agree it's understandable from their perspective,
I found myself gravitating towards Alt Milla a lot more.  I didn't have anything particularly against Milla Maxwell, but I disliked how she handled the situation in such a dismissive way and it really dropped my opinion of her. I suppose I'm not being particularly rational either, haha.

I like the optional dungeon transformation rewards a ton.  They clip like crazy because the designs clearly weren't made to run (just try running in Wingul's and you'll see what I mean) or wield the party's weapons, but it's still a ton of fun in cutscenes. And possibly a bit creepy if you do things like turn Leia into Presa.

Uh, Klyde,

Code:
Her voice actress is the same, they haven't changed anything.

Reason being:

Code:
She's using a "new" inflection because Alt Milla is an entirely different character than Milla Maxwell in personality.
There's no reason for them to speak exactly the same way.

I never thought I'd be saying this, but I'd prefer some procedurally generated vegetation.

You get access to the Casino after doing one of the board quests.  I think it's the Tengu mask guy?  It's in the bar where Ludger wakes up to his debt.  It's a pretty bare-bones casino, though.

And yes, I absolutely love Drellin.  What a great atmosphere.

I'm trying to say this as vaguely as possible, but make sure you check those weird standing rectangles with blue front sides.  The game won't give you a prompt to do so, but if you press X by them, something neat happens. A different something neat happens on each one.
28  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Tales of PlayStation(s) revealed on: August 28, 2014, 03:20:23 PM
Yeah, I believe the set of 4 weapons you find in the Chapter 10 story dungeon is really the only important ones with unique items.  Otherwise, I don't feel I've missed anything by skipping the chests in the character episodes.

The weapons are all in the same room, but they're a bit out of the way.

Edit: To be fair, though, the Chapter 10 dungeon is one of those non-reused areas and it's amazing.  You'll probably want to explore it in its entirety anyway.

I can forgive the recycled areas from ToX 1. I mean, it does sort of make sense, even if it's a bit annoying.

What I'm struggling to forgive is that ToX 2 recycles its own content. Fully explore an area and then have to do it again in a
Code:
Fractured Dimension
? Mildly infuriating.

I agree.  I mean, for example, in Gaius' episodes alone you go through the Mon Highlands twice, not to mention needing to go through them to get to Kanbalar initially.  So that's a minimum of 3 times going through the same pointless region.

That being said, once I realized that there was nothing particularly good or unique in the chests in the character episodes (eg, no extractors), I just started running through and ignoring everything.

= If you didn't know, you can check active jobs in the Library> Event sections.  Took me about 5 hours before I tried searching for it myself.

This took me forever to figure out.  I kept having to go back to the Job Board.  It does seem a bit strange, I would have expected a devoted tab on the menu, at least.

On the subject of those popularity polls, I'm surprised Julius is so high.  I like him, I just didn't expect Japan to.
