If we got this before Versus XIII it'll be a miracle.

That would be an interesting bet actually.

Quite possible.

I'd hump your leg happy.... I'd be very happy.

Beat Abyss 3DS, did really well with sidequests, but missed a few key ones.
Beat Nebilim with...not too much difficulty, I'm more sad she was set to "normal" at it was still a bit troublesome (more in the perspective the AI can't dodge).  The battle is infinitely easier with Anise than Guy, and Natalia stayed away from the battlefield almost the entire game (anyone actually use her?).  Story wise, I think this game's story is the best the Tales has seen, bar none, and especially after the god awful tale told in Graces.  I mean wtf -- what a step back.... =/

Played some Xenoblade... I can't see me playing this game hardcore till Summer hits...  Love it though.  I think the way everyone says "MONDADO" is hilarious though.

I'm actually pretty blue... I don't think Squeenix wants to pursue the Noel x Serah pairing because of the fact she'd be... damaged goods, in a conservative Japanese sense.

Well, they don't need to listen to that... since when have video games specifically catered to the culturally conservative? They're already outlandish with lots of nihilism that wouldn't particularly be attractive to the conservative section of any culture. But S-E does sorta wuss out sometimes.

I honestly think SE might regret the Snow and Serah pairing, and using it as a plot device.  Like I said, I agree with you in the Noel and Serah are an awesome couple... but we'll see if they handle it to actually hook them up or stay true to the fact she's already "engaged" to some fuck.

Anywho.  Any info on when we are getting the new DLC?  I wanna play Ezio dress up already.
That, and I'm glad the kept (?) Battle at the Bridge music for Gilga.

Which reminds me,....  anyone tinker with the grade shop yet???

http://aselia.wikia.com/wiki/ToG_-_Grade_Shop

Yeah.... I miss old school grade shop, some of these sound like a damned pain in the ass.
6245  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: The Legend of Nayuta: Trails of Seasons thread on: April 10, 2012, 01:00:46 PM
Can't wait for this???

I will be all over XSeed if they ever reach this far.  I'm interested in the alleged look away from turn-based combat.

And yeah, changing the seasons at will can be interesting.  Lord knows I loved the fuck out of the Zelda Oracle series.

Betty never seems to redeem herself as a good or interesting Character....

I can't call Betty hot still.... she's cute... but you've always had an odd taste in "hotness", Yodes. o_O

I'm actually pretty blue... I don't think Squeenix wants to pursue the Noel x Serah pairing because of the fact she'd be... damaged goods, in a conservative Japanese sense.  Engaged or not, it'd be turning back on her initial engagement, and that just looks bad.  I wouldn't mind multiple endings, cuz I agree completely about them two.  They were a mutual couple, no damsel-saving in sight, and it was quite refreshing.

Rita was a fucking terrible character. Her entire spiel consisted of whining about Blastia and being disproportionately violent towards other people.

Yeah, I never got the Rita love...  I liked some of her "sass" (e.x.; "blah blah blah" is an awesome spell chant if I've ever heard one), but I think  I'm tired of the idea of "mad [15 yrs old] geniuses!!!".

I thought Raven could have been handled better as well.  He was good, but could have been milked for a few chuckles more (loved the skit that shows his reaction to Judith in a bathing suit).

I liked Estelle and Karol a lot more than I thought I would on the other hand.  Estelle was sweet, earnest, and I liked that "book smart" aspect (which was made a "quirk" when her street-smarts were extremely lacking). Karol was just hilarious, that kind of scared act was charming because he was really bright to make up for it; but he also tried really hard.  He's an easy target to tease, and I love the fact that the cast actually did tease him (c'mon, the girly outfit? amazing!).

The Biggest flaw? 
Anyone remember what the point of Duke or the Adaphagos was?
Yeah... me neither.

Flaming: I liked Eternia's bland cast myself.  I actually thought Meredy was sweet, and I loved Reid for being lazy.  And Max for his trademark line.

PS: Arche fucks like a tiger.

Went to Magnolia Thunderpussy to get a copy of Paralytic Stalks. Chick was talking to the cashier about Rainbow Dash.

What is this sentence...

I giggled. A lot. xD

Booted up Tales of Destiny because I felt an itch to play it.  I can deal with SNES level graphics and I can somewhat deal with a high encounter rate, but having to win battles on my own because my allies sit around and do nothing but stand behind me is not acceptable.  Their tactic settings are set on aggressive, but they choose to rest on their laurels and for the most part, do jack squat.  Bah.

Xenoblade Chronicles.  Everyone on the boards who hasn't grabbed it yet really should do so. Immediately. Fantastic game.

I need to pick this up.

Can I borrow/buy Destiny off you after anyways?? :<
Been dying to play the first one (in NA) again...

Xenoblade.  It's picking up really nicely, and I love a lot.  The graphics make my goods excited.  I loved having Shulk wearing bathing short-shorts for the big event at Colony 9.  Something about idiot-looking heroes makes me happy and no situation as bad as it seems.

I like good cosplay, too.  I've always had a guilty desire to try it myself, but the cost of an outfit and the possibility of looking like an absolute knob stops me.  The hell was wrong with a scandelous outfit for [some of] the very games appearing at these conventions?! So silly, not like she was showing nip.

One of my favorite ones.  Yeah, never heard of bad things about characters, they're all so quirky usually there's one "flavour" someone will like.

Cyril makes a good point.  Especially in bringing Graces up as well, but in a slightly different sense.

The Tales series in general likes making cutscenes to flesh out characters, they love side quests that deal with them, or even side quests that gives you an item that's ONLY for the sake of 100%-ing the Collection Book.  But, the skits, the quests, the special armor/weapons unique to characters, the little flash backs really are what make the character stand out and make it easy to "pick favorites". 

But Serah and Noel don't really have that.  And when they do, it's not like they have any unique personality traits to flesh the moment out besides Serah being "nice" and Noel being "calm".  For lack of better words, they're kinda...boring.  No one really aims to surprise, and the setting and context they come from is so hard to relate, you really can't.  They sort of just drone on about saving the world.

I think Square has trouble making human-like characters these days, they completely lack dimension now.

I don't think the graphics are bad at all. The only thing that stands out are the faces, which by today's standards aren't up to par.

And the head shape.... someone on the dev team clearly doesn't know how a human head is shaped.
Something about the eyes... somewhere between the fact they're absolutely gigantic when everything else is relatively proportional bothers me.  That, and they're seriously muddy looking, and have no shame in close-up shots. >_o

But yeah, those environments, even if it is some clever graphics trick, or being lost in a combination or loveryly music.... but the game certainly takes more liberties in "atmosphere" then most in recent years. 
Keyword here...Gestalt: the whole is better than the sum of it's parts.

Can I just say how happy I am to play a JRPG in British-English (< best attempt at a union jack in-text)??

Let me just say, I love everyone in English-speaking Europe.  But I love you all.
