It happens a lot in Japanese VA, from what I gather.

Maaya Sakamoto is one of few who seems to jump from lead to lead (she's got a good voice, it changes...Lowenthal keeps that same pitch that drives me nuts).  I've heard a lot of VAs that go from Lead--->Supporting and vice-versa.  Consider me disappointed if they do though.  But, like I said, I haven't been disappointed by the voices they've picked out for characters (ToE being the obvious exception to the smartass who wants to bring it up)

Is it just me or is the format a little off on that?

Rage got in the way of format.

I remember when a member bragged about Stella Deus and had a number of us convinced.... till we played it.

Yuri Lowenthal has excellent chemistry with Johnny Yong Bosch when they voice opposing characters. Just watch a few episodes of Code Geass for proof. I would not be opposed to Yuri Lowenthal and JYB for Asbel and Richard, respectively.

Givent the track records; I don't know... I personally find it's goes against some sort of "voicing ethics" to have one guy voice two leads.  Something about it is weird, unfair, and repetitive.  Otherwise, I have faith in Banco to pick someone good; they generally have.  Luke was good till I got sick of the usual "speeches" he blabbed on about.

They should go for a simultaneous international release for Xilia or at least pay someone to put some english subtitles in the Namco loves to release crap and leave the good stuff out I wouldn't be surprised.

If you mean leave out Tales titles, please don't.  We missed Rebirth, a few handhelds (two of which either sucked ass or was just 'ok'), a PS3 version of a title we have, two PS2 version of a title we have, and we're getting the "amped-up" Graces.
Given finances, I'm not too depressed we've missed out on "2nd versions" of some of the same titles.  It does bug me, given how I like the series, but it isn't something I'm gonna regret as a whole on gaming.

I honestly hate the pessimism the series gets.  The crying and wailing "We'll never ever see a 'good' Tales game ever again!!" is driving me nuts.  Shit, even with the Graces announcement people mope, "Why isn't it PS3 VESPARIAR?".  If it's because you don't have an X360, deal with it, I played on mine when the world was raving about MGS, LBP, and all other exclusives.

PS: Yuri Lowenthal??  FUCK Yuri Lowenthall, the man sounds like his balls still need to drop.  Bad enough in Abyss he was either a whining asshole or an emo who hates himself.

My biggest problem with Xenoblade is with the name of the main character; Shulk. Is like Hulk with an S. Yeah, that's retarded.

There's some other wierd names too, but I can't remember them.

Gotta admire the Japanese naming convention, where even people's named are based on some time of the year + a flower or whatever.  Sadly it doesn't work when the try Anglo names.  Yeah, Shulk.  Blood, Squall, Bagel, Denam, Edge, Kite, Ash, Jack Russel, Walnut and I'm sure Kneecap exists somewhere out there.
I'm very hurt.

Haha relax, I'm just pointing out the noun-based naming convention.  I like the name Paige myself.

Unless the game pulls an about face and turns into InuYasha: Secret of the Divine Jewel at the last minute, it'll get good marks from me.   

What happened there?  And why did you trust an anime>game title???

From what I know, Tales of Graces has one of the best battle systems in the Tales series. I've also read that ToG's story isn't retarded and childish, it has a decent story with good characterization but it's neither epic nor disastrous.

Here's Bebpo's review on ToG: http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showpost.php?p=19539146&postcount=104

I know we take Famitsu's reviews with a grain of salt [in a wound, at that]; but it's the best rated amongst all other Tales titles as well.

And yeah, I've heard similar sentiments about the battle system; I like the speed of it all myself.

Haha I'm not upset - I'm hoping the game will be good.  Not really my cup of tea thus far either.  I'm just going on my general "like" of the series. 

I hate this "loli" thing thats in now - I think Sophie looks uggers.

Well, we have never been famous for our GOOD weather, lets put it that way. This past couple of days however have been pretty bad, reminds me of that hurricane I was in when I was on holiday in the US.

Though it isn't that big a deal here because our houses aren't made out of styrofoam.

What on Earth am I watching? What. the. fuck.

For some reason I got the "new homes" idea from How To Train Your Dragon.

Anyways, Flying Nun, starring momma from Forrest Gump.  Cute show.... on Dick at Nite or whatever it's called.

I won't be flocking to anything.  Graces doesn't interest me in the slightest.



I prefer Xillia myself... but what are ya gonna do?  I still have yet to be really put out by a Tales title.

Basically, Scotland has been getting some pretty killer winds the past couple of days, I'm sure CastNuri will vouch, and the front door to the building for SOME REASON wasn't/can't be locked properly.

Crazy winds, I got caught in the rain/windstorm today and got completely soaked. It's really amazing weather. :D



...I've heard that about Scotland.  Is there a warning issues for people less than 90 lbs?

Namco is probably bringing Graces F over to gauge whether bringing over Xillia and/or Abyss 3DS would be worth it as well.

I've heard the same. Actually I heard that the formula that there using to determine whether Xillia comes over is that however many units ToGf sells in NA, it needed to sell a thousand more copies for them to bring Xillia over. :-/

1000 more compared to what??  Vesp??

In that case I hope pissy PS3 owners bitter about the lack of a Tales title flock to Graces... otherwise I think the dream will die.
7453  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Tales of Graces confirmed for NA on: February 03, 2011, 08:08:15 PM
I just don't see Vesperia happening.

Namco is probably bringing Graces F over to gauge whether bringing over Xillia and/or Abyss 3DS would be worth it as well.

I don't either - not by this point and time.  We're getting Graces.  And I hope to Christ we get Xillia (to me, it looks waay better).
I'm not too sure how much they expect to sell, which scares me given the niche crowd Tales or anime RPGs already are.

Can't Bamco just budget themselves better?

Like Parn said, half the in-game work was already done for a PS3 version... what stopped them???

That's so mean, Star. :(

I know. :( I really should have let that die into obscurity.

I love how the States finds the money for this bullshit.

Honestly, given how some of these other games of theirs have done I think they just plain fucked up by not releasing Vesperia PS3 in a timely manner. Sounds like that would've been a more profitable venture than Enslaved and especially Splatterhouse ended up being.

Spallterhouse?  Totally.

Enslaved was pretty awesome.  Just one of those a-shame cases it didnt sell well (short too).

I agree - I think a lot of people wouldn't have bought it.  I'm surprised they wouldn't have risked it - but I guess, at the same time, they simply didn't want to make that risk.  Aren't there more X360's in the States?  Some people are still hopeful - saying there's enough "hints" that its eventually gonna happen...but..
