I think I'm just going to buy it used.

It would actually be kinda nice if they didn't slap that tacky ass "GS".

thats like saying p4a is the pinnacle of fighting games because it has auto combos. cause what it actually is.

Not sure I get what you're saying, I wouldn't say that togf's system boils down to AAAA auto-combos.... It doesn't have the depth and difficulties of a fighting game like p4A, but you can easily spend hundres of hours to master the system.  l would rank the battle system as one of the deepest out there in jrpg in the current gen.

I thought it was refreshing to get a battle system not based on MP for fucking once.  Previous Tales games are hardly so lenient in their skill usage and linking them isn't as much fun.

Yeah, very much agreed.  It's nice to see the CC system making a come back since ToD.  It's not really restricting once you get used the upgrade system and starting having insane number of CCs... In the end game I never really run out it

Now thinking about it, Tales of Destiny on the PS2 is one of the best tales game I played and really digged the battle system.  Since togf is made by some of the same people... that's maybe why I liked the system so much xD

The problem.with Graces is the entire team is astounding in player hands, but Asbel is probably the weakest out of player hands. From what I remember, Pascal was a powerhouse when player controlled, as was Malik, but Hubert and Cheria were top tier when used by players...odd considering Cheria is a healer.

I don't' see this as a downside...  The system really encourage you to try all the chars with the fast switch system.  In Vesperia I really played only Yuri, and although I tried to main Judith but I just can't get hang of the air combos.  Rita and Estelle are boring to use...
In graces everyone was fun to play and powerful, and the cast is relatively small so it's easy to know how to play everyone.   This is a plus to me.

DEAR RPGFAN.  MAKE A BEST BATTLESYSTEMS FEATURE~!!!! (plz put Graces on that list -- it d'serves it)

And YES!  I think that's what one of the most important parts and and the point was made earlier that in Graces even the Mages are fun and easy to use (and it's titles, not a precious accessory slot, that can give you the "fast cast" ability on the fly).  I'd KILL someone to get ToD PS2 on the Playstation Network -- I've always heard how "amazing" it is, and I get jealous (ToD PSX being my first proper Tales game).

After hearing how killer Judith can be, I do wanna give her a shot.

Team of Cheria's (4x) is the tits.

Quad Malik with his tornado spell pretty much prevents any boss from moving.

I'll keep that in mind with trophies.  Which tornado spell?  It took me forever to realize his arrows were his Accel till I used him (and man they're juicy for combos).

Naw man.  There's no tone on here and I'm enthusiastic about this release.
If I wanted to go for that, I would done "this" to it.

Aw damn.  If it means anything I had some old chocolate easter eggs in my hand then.
Desert, I'm saving that~!

^ I think that's why it was simply a biological depression; there really isn't a cause for it it's just an ugly manifested thing that's extremely hard to stop since it's all them chemical imbalances in the brain (but like I said, her family being a load of suck can't help; a teacher in our school committed suicide after a long battle with it, despite good job and fiancée).

And trust me, I miss themes from movies all the time.  Understanding The Life Aquatic took the movie from a 6 to a 9 for me.

Wow.  I think someone who knows ALttP like the back of their hand put this gem together...

Hubert is a fucking king on the battle field

Hubert burns through CC so quickly but he's incredibly strong. I need at one point to craft CC increasing gear for him and see how that goes.

I find Hubert all about his B-artes.  His A's are....pretty much the same.  But Absolute Zero, Radial Arc, his Fire Bullet and Rolling Thunderbolt are absolutely badass. 

Malik is interesting as well.  For what looks like a heavy hitter we get an awesome mage with decent AI.

I think of all the cast, Pascal is unfortunately the odd woman out (or at least, high risk but with high reward...*shrug*).

Successful hits to enemy weak spots could recharge CC as much as the whole thing (within your min-max of course).

When I played last weekend, I realized how crazy this is. Late game, when you have a lot of CC, a FULL recovery is CRAZY. I was fighting an enemy at one point controlling Asbel and I went from 19 CC to 1 CC but my last hit gave me back a full 19 CC... crazy ass combo (then link that thing with a 75 hit free Mystic Art *drool*).

Yeah, the game really makes it easier for you to combo later.  It's also refreshing to play a game where ATK and DEF aren't necessarily the bigger priorities over Accuracy and Evasion.  ....the criticals are brutal against enemies...and the party. ;(  (hard modes become really brutal for 1HKOs).

My big thing about Vesperia's battle system was Judith. Air combos are fun.

I actually played Vesperia with a friend. I was playing Yuri and my friend was Judith. He swears that it was awesome (I never really tried myself, it was his character).
One major thing Graces F did though is that playing a caster is fun. I played a bit of Rita and Estelle in Vesperia and it's just mind numbingly boring... and that's coming from the guy who prefers to play Rena over Claude in SO2.
[/quote][/quote]

Yeah, I couldn't handle Judith either, then again, I usually have a tough go of someone *not* the main character (major exceptions being Guy from TotA and Chloe from Legendia for obvious reasons).  I do feel pretty comfy with a bunch of characters in Graces -- Hubert is a fucking king on the battle field, especially when linking A-to-B artes since he can pull off a spell with next to no wait time.  Rita was boring, I hated the fucking GRADE trick and I hate that she's the strongest mage due to some convenient loophole.

Speaking of TotA and good combat mechs... I wish FoF's would come back or some form of it.
