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.

Oh yeah, I hated graces F's CC shit for limiting attacks, and the constant upgrading weapons to give you CC to get around that limitation. Even after getting around it, it was always at the back of my head to conserve CC for big attacks, which resulted in either me comboing for a straight 45 seconds or running around for 2 minutes waiting for an opening. It's a pet peeve at best, but it had to be said.

Sounds like you were playing it wrong.  Running around for 2 minutes?  CC recovers incredibly fast if you just sit still for a second...
I know, it was in regards to the fact that my assault opening had ended and I would work around for a new opening, like when an enemy whiffed a huve attack or started casting a spell. CC recharged rapidly while standing still, just couldn't stand still very often on higher difficulties, and trying to keep that no damage bonus on meant being careful.

Strafing takes 1CC (I *never* used Free Run in this), and if you evaded it restored cc so you could counter.  Successful hits to enemy weak spots could recharge CC as much as the whole thing (within your min-max of course).

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.

1) Give you rewards for actually turning up the difficultly

This.
Most Tales do it too, but I feel this one gives you enough to make you want to do it while the other games usually just feel cheap at the risk VS reward.

I agree, I think the battle system is near-perfect (certainly makes up for any of the others games flaws - though I do like the overall themes of it).  Abyss' idea of "difficulty" was one of the worst though (high damage, high HP...  AI).
Hope we see this style of combat again next Tales.  I'm cool with TP and all, but I loved the flexibility of Graces' system.

Count Chocula for the win!

Jeesus Christ that was insane.  Never knew explosions are that damned quick (Hollywood's slow-mo has ruined me).

^ You missed the point.
Code:
I agree the movie is much too long and certainly the grim subject matter doesn't really help "enjoyability" in the grand scope of it.  But the point was around Dunst's character's clinical depression -- a serious issue to those who have it (and without a doubt, her fiance knew it and tried to help her along with it).  She succumbed to ruining her special day because she just couldn't get happy no matter the circumstances.  Her wedding was about trying to overcome her depression, which she did at first, but by the end she couldn't shake it (and certainly her crappy family situation didn't help).  Meanwhile, her sister Claire[?], has her shit together and is upset that Justine can't deal with hers, especially on her wedding day.

Anyways, come the second half of the plot, everyone is one edge and worried because of a close encounter with a large planet that is threatening to wipe out all existence.  Funny enough, the only one really "fit" to deal with it is the most melancholic family member, who's already accustomed to deep, dark, depressing thoughts and knows there is no chance of hope.  You see Claire, who's usually more calm and collected, starting to panic and lose it as her sister (the actually ill one) begins to become more at peace with the end.  You can see this when Claire was trying to escape from their house to some shelter for safety (iirc) and Kirtsten is just all..."forget it, there's no point". 
And she was right.

Lars makes films of an acquired taste.  While i don't find it particularly good, I do find it ground-breaking since nothing like this film has ever been made, and I do like the added sub-text about [real] depression.

Ah well.  At the very least, the last minute won't have you blink for even a second.  Because -- wow.
