Some new screens.  It definitely looks like they took the humorous approach with him.  The way his eyes go towards Typhon in one of the screens near the middle is hilariously creepy.

Asbel has heterochromia on the cover.  You've seen two characters get Heterochromia through the course of the game.
Richard's is more subtle, but he didn't have it at the start of the game and it's rather noticeable if you pay attention, and Emeraude.
It's obviously Lambda, since you see it in action before you fight her.  Just a glance at the cover shows you that it was going to
happen; I was more surprised it took so long.

He does look good.  Would it be too much to ask for him to have a witty one-liner or two somewhere?
859  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Tales of Graces F on: March 21, 2012, 09:05:58 PM
Eh, I wasn't really referring to you with that comment. I was just clarifying for anyone else.

That movie doesn't really do a good job of showing the differing hairstyles.  You can't even see Asbel's part, Cheria's bun, or Pascal's braids, for example.


As for DLC - There's probably more, this is just what I got after a quick search.

Also, it's $4 for each costume, not the entire set.
861  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Tales of Graces F on: March 21, 2012, 08:05:37 PM
Also, it says right in the description that the costumes are to unlock the costumes early, as in, you can do it in game.  I haven't gotten far enough to unlock them in-game myself, but it sounds like you can.

The $4 costumes are not available in-game.  Everything else is.  There are only 2 costumes per character in-game, the swimsuit and another alternate.   Sophie, Asbel, and Cheria get a third, the ToV ones. Sophie gets a fourth when you do the Future Arc.

Speaking of the future arc, Asbel's alternate costume looks so, so nice with his new "look."

I just beat it earlier today. I have to admit the ending surprised me a bit...

I'm not sure why, given
it's spoiled by the cover boxart. Seriously Bamco? Seriously?
863  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Tales of Graces F on: March 21, 2012, 10:44:02 AM
$2 for a +2 to Chain Capacity. -- Pretty good, but whatever
$2 for a +1 to Chain Capacity. -- Why this when you can get the 2CC? I buy one I kinda want the 2nd one half off...
$3 for +5 levels. (and there's 3 of these!) -- Fuck no, levels are easy enough to get
$2 for +1000 HP. -- Not bad actually
$2 for 25% dualizing discounts. -- Dualizing is cheap enough. 25% isn't much
$2 for +500 Eleth. -- Def not worth it.  Filling up at Turtlez happens often enough
$2 for double SP. -- That is really good, but potentially game destroying...
$2 for double item drop rate. -- I think that's pretty snazzy, I hate item hunting, it's time wasting
$2 for a set of 6 spell books that, according to the advert, reduce the damage you take by 50%. -- Game breaking, but a pretty good offer?  If it's spell books, likely cost a fucking TON of eleth though....

One of the Chain Capacities is likely a minimum and one is a maximum.  I have Maximums out of the ass, but Minimums are harder to come by.  If that's 2 to a minimum, that's amazing.

The Reduce damage 50% book isn't broken, because it eats your Eleth really, really fast. I can see it maybe saving you in harder modes, but I wouldn't bother outside of bosses.

Almost every single one of those is available in-game or via the Grade Shop. I'm sure there's a comment about laziness I can make here, but I'm not going to bother.

Anyway, I beat the Future Arc today.
I enjoyed it more than the main game, to some extent.  The female "enemy" was mostly filler, I think they
could have done without her.  Still, it's hard to make an antagonist out of something like a planet - who has worthy
and understandable goals. I really enjoyed how the situation was basically reversed from the main game and you're
the "villain" in a sense.

Asbel also became awesome.  No comments as to why in case someone scrolls over this and hasn't beaten the
game yet. Pascal finally matured a bit - even if the lack of shower bit is disgusting - and Hubert became adorable.
Richard and Malik are amusing together, always poking fun at people and teasing them.  It was definitely a good
conclusion, and I enjoyed the major themes.

So, it's pretty much just a cash-in/Test of the possible Vita market?
865  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Tales of Graces F on: March 19, 2012, 11:18:24 PM
I'm not sure if there's evidence, but given that the director said it was unfinished, I wouldn't be surprised if there was. If you find anything, let me know.  I admit, I like Tales of, but many Tales of fans are a bit too much for me; I'd rather not wade through the posts on GameFAQs.

Is Innocence a decent game, at least?
866  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Tales of Graces F on: March 19, 2012, 11:01:37 PM
I'd rather we get Xillia later rather than sooner; no doubt there's going to be the director's cut.  The next game on the drawing board should be Innocence R for Vita, but given it only seemed to sell around 75,000 copies in Japan, well, we'll see. That's only ~10,000 less than ToTA 3DS.
867  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Black Rock Shooter: The Game on: March 19, 2012, 10:07:19 PM
I'd say if NISA doesn't mention it at their press event, it's been cancelled.  I don't think we should judge until then.

I heard the event is early this year. Any exact date on it?
868  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Tales of Graces F on: March 19, 2012, 06:57:11 PM
Honestly, Pascal is the only one who doesn't work well into the group chemistry for me.  She has some cute moments early on, but she ruins far more of them, especially later, where her entire character starts to feel out of place.  I think she needed to calm down at least a tiny bit after a certain point if they wanted her to fit in. The writers pushed too hard, methinks.
But she and Hubert do work nicely together.  She lightens him up, and he will make her a bit more serious.

That said, Team Destiny did use a story element I'm quite fond of, despite almost every other plot twist being seen from a mile away.
The true antagonist dies well before the game ends, but you don't realize it at the time. And everything you happened to
learn about the one that at first "appears" to be the true antagonist happened to be a lie.  Yet you can't do anything about it; lie
or not, Sophie is still programmed to kill him and he is a threat to the world.

Also, the Asbel costume with his hair parted to the side is so, so, so much better than his normal look.

New screens.  Very, very interesting. It's like he took Wizardry one step further.
870  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Gust announces new Atelier game: Atelier Meruru on: March 18, 2012, 05:44:31 AM
Since I'm not sure there's enough information to warrant the creation of a new thread, Gust has leaked a few tidbits about Project Atelier 14. Meruru is A13.
