Tales of Legendia is the one that looks like a PS1 game, and even it doesn't look that bad. It just looks really budget. The only real way in which Abyss is a step back is that it doesn't have cel shading. That's it. Graces looks kind of blah for a PS3 game, especially considering Eternal Sonata, but it's a remake of a Wii game, so I'll give it some slack.

Say what?!  Did you see the scenery in that game?  I thought it looked better than 90% of games

Only problem is it's the only of the prev. gen titles that didn't "zoom in" or show any dynamic shots during story events.

Abyss looked awful.  But it got the body proportions most accurate.  I thought Symphonia looked way better if not for the fact the character models all looked like Fisher Price toys.


Problem with the series, and this wasn't fixed till Graces' motion-capture, was the stoic animation. That's one reason Abyss looked awful, the cutscenes were very wooden and quick.

I always found Tales series did backgrounds to a stellar degree though, that's why I've always loved their graphics anyways.

Anyone wanna mail this to them as something they could put in their "good ideas" folder?
FF13-3 automatically comes out of a "bad idea" folder...

It also suffered from the "I'm-my-own-grandfather" type of spoiler weird-isms.
Concept was cool, but kinda suffered near the end.
I still think one of the coolest chicks drawin' manga has to go to the FMA artist.  Deam.

I found out that my sort of friend got rejected from his spot at ConBravo -- yup, Hidoshi's territory.  Love it.

I worked with a moody fucker, while I heard the question "Is this the real price?????" 3 times more than I want to hear.  NAW... IT's A FAKE PRICE.  REAL PRICE IS $1000, get the fuck out.

Figures, and as some of you now own, art books.
I have some clothing, some from work I use as PJs (a very awesome SotC one and a Metroid one ranked as my favs).

Maybe Ill be one of "those" nerds and take a shot of it.

Out of these 3 which one would you recommend playing first? Abyss, graces F, or vesperia.

Definitely Abyss.  Just be prepared for a fairly long journey. 

Fourth-ded.  Unfortunately, Abyss hasn't aged the best gameplay wise, but I still say it's years ahead of the others in terms of story.

Fifthed. I feel Abyss has some of the best characters of any game period.

Ion, appearance and relative wussy-ness aside, has to be one of the greatest NPC characters seen in a while.

Oh. For people who like figures and such, the Tales Nendo's are being shown off.

Kinda want? Petites are kinda oblong for my liking.

Pick:

-- The dream job ($) (^_^)

-- The safe job ($$) (-__-)




LEGEND:
$ - Modest income
$$ - High income
^_^ - Higher job satisfaction
-__- - Lower job satisfaction


It's an honest question, do you go after your dreams even if they take a while to (or maybe "if") they ever pay off, or do you go for what's safe and affords you a decent living?  Read into the question what you will -- whatever if's, and's, and but's you want to stipulate.

I kinda wanna grab the game.... conflicting feels arise.

When I was a youngun I had Wizards and Warriors down pat and could beat it w/out dying. Now? Can't clear level 1 without cursing my maker.

I feel so ashamed when I "level down" in gaming skill, especially a particular title.  I wonder wtf I did right then.

Super Mario Galaxy isn't that great a game, at least compared to Super Mario 64 and Super Mario Sunshine.

Finally someone who shares my opinion on that game! I hate Galaxy.

Not to mention they took out the best part about 64 and Sunshine: being able to get stars you're not even suppose to get yet.
I still wouldn't say I hate it, though. It's just disappointing and kinda meh for me. I still managed to play it off and on to get halfway through, though that was by playing one level per session.

Definitely that point there.  I loved the 'surprise' when you got a star you weren't actually aiming for.
I loved Galaxy, but it definitely didn't sit right, the lack of exploration was definitely a factor.

Also -- I fucking hate playing Mario as a virtual obstacle course (some Sunshine levels drove me fucking crazy for that).

That joke was hilarious when it was on Futurama.

Actually no it wasn't that funny then.

It WAS funny then, just isn't now

FRY: This is a great, as long as you don't make me smell Uranus. Heh heh.
LEELA: I don't get it.
PROFESSOR FARNSWORTH: I'm sorry, Fry, but astronomers renamed Uranus in 2620 to end that stupid joke once and for all.
FRY: Oh. What's it called now?
PROFESSOR FARNSWORTH: Urectum.



Worked a dicky shift, ate good food (not ramen this week), then I came home to draw.

I had a headache, so took one of my super headache pills.  I'm a bit stoned, and very tired.  I tried to "undo" ctrl+z style a line in my sketchbook.

3DS version would be amazing (funny, I already feel that a PS360 version is out of the question or not even worth thinking about).

Eugh.  I give our EBGames Keyholder (former Assistant Manager some years ago) a ride home only to get a "talking to" about work ethic since I was a bit chatty today (and the pot called the kettle black here too).  This is the same tit who threw a case because he didn't like where I put the price sticker on PS3 games, saying even the Manager does it "the other way" (when he doesn't always).  Moodiest man alive -- which totally clouds over when he's actually being a genuinely okay guy.

Then, in a separate incidence, a man walks by the store in, I kid you not, it was a guy with a beard, ballet tutu, red turtleneck, purple tights, makeup and indoor umbrella.  I'm amazed!  I tell the others, one of the co-workers says it was "unclassy" of me to bring it up.  WTF!!  You don't see that everyday, and it's unclassy!?  If I saw that everyday, I'd agree, but this was unqiue.

Relaxing.  Work again in the morning.  I want some pants.

The game looks awesome and clean looking if you don't mind sprites.  After playing this for awhile, I think Trails in the Sky 2 would be pretty awesome on this since it happenin on the PSP seems really slim.

The big reason I haven't replayed Trails in the Sky is because I'm hoping they get it on Steam sooner than later. I'm definitely expecting at least the first game to hit there, preferably within a few months. I DO imagine it'll take longer than the Ys games on account of having more text to insert and being a longer game to test.

Well, now with word it might get ported over to the 3DS... I wonder if XSeed or any other company has ties to the Japanese companies to know what they're doing and plan that far ahead.
Fuck... I just want SC. :(  Anything else can be delayed if it meant a guarantee for more of this series.

Really considering buying Ys Origin on steam.  The good review helped, but I know the day I buy it, it'll go on sale the next day.

If you did it today you would probably be right. Tomorrow should be the Steam Summer Sale, and if it's not one of the daily deals it'll likely at least have something like 25% off.

Thanks.  I saw this post last night and decided to wait and when I looked after work today, it was like 11.99 or something.  Bought it, gonna hook up my PS3 controller tonight and give it a whirl.

Oh MAN, excellent timing. xD

But, first I've heard about hooking up PS3 controllers... :O
