2/3 of earth is comprised of water....you'd think some environmentalists would figure out how to make it drinkable instead of converting our own piss back to drinkable water. Priorities...

HEY this isn't fighter's generation, keep your arcade terminology outta here! Nyucknyuck.

But yeah, you've got a good point otherwise Akanbe. That's why I prefer Abyss and Vesperia and even symphonia. Makes it feel more arcade like, where again, graces feels more tactical. In a nutshell, vesperia and its ilk reward abusive combos, whereas graces rewards strategy, blocking, evasive actions, and so on.

Heh, I remember in tales of destiny that one ring that allowed you to use motions for artes instead of just button+direction. Now that was an awesome idea. Wonder if it'll ever happen again?

People have put dollar values on every other natural resource, including water. As much of a douche as he sounds like, is it really that surprising to hear it?

New workout partner, this guy's 40 years old and puts up as much weight as I do. We did shoulders today, and he had me do his routine instead of my usual 5 exercises at 5 sets each. We did 6 exercises, 3 sets each for shoulders, and 4 exercises at 4 sets each for triceps. This....was a bit of a stretch for me as I don't do that much yet. Furthering his attempt to kill me, we started with military presses at 200lbs on a smith machine...I have never even tried pressing 200lbs yet, and he wanted to start on it. However, I also never tried working out with someone on my level, so this was giving me some motivation to try harder. I managed to keep up with him almost the whole way, though he did throttle back his weights on some exercises so I could stay on par with him. Tricep stuff was cake, I have some monster triceps now. Today, we're gonna hit up chest, and he already said the aim is 315....I'm almost excited.

Today's gonna be a good day.

Graces F doesn't have a dumbed down battle system, it's far more detailed in regards to specializing attack strategies. They simplified controls, but gave it a more tactical feel, requiring you to check your opponent for weaknesses and capitalizing on them, instead of an overwhelming offensive in most other Tales games. I'm not saying I disliked any of the battle systems, Tales has always delivered fun through combat. I am saying that the 2D plane of combat is my preferred medium, which is what Alisha seems to be saying.

Tales rarely doesn't deliver the best combat system in a JRPG, and even their worst game still trumps most any other JRPG combat system.

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.

Ygg's just pissed about capcom's terrible treatemeny of everyone, excuse his ornery accusations.

Kudos given to that assembly of images, though the enemy placement and specific tree in the uppermost part did give some assistance...

Count CHOCULA for the win!
You're fired Dice.

The camera options didn't change the control options though.

I could argue further, but simply put I don't like getting hit, so being a weenie and running away while.CC recharged and enemies got distracted by Sophie was easier.

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

Changed the topic in light of the fact they're calling it a sequel, it's even explicitly numbered in the Japanese name.
This is why Eusis is an admin and not a bum like the rest of us.

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.

I still prefer vesperia's battle system as it's more reminiscent of a fighting thanks to the 2D plane for fighting. The overhead 3D in Graces F made it feel less like a fighting game and more like a basic action game with combos. It's not to say it's bad, but I enjoy the fighting game style over the action game style, especially being a fan of games like Marvel vs Capcom, Tekken, and soul caliber. My fighting game appreciation hasn't died over the years, I just don't play them nearly as much as rpgs.

Things are starting to look grim here in the ole U S of A.

In Alisha's defense, the first point when I read the article said it was in fact a remake, but the dungeons were all getting redone. Even the topic title is lttp, Link to the Past. Can't help but assume remake by that.
