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.

I don't know about you other guys, but it takes 2 hands to wield a greatsword or greataxe properly. Don't mean a thing if you can't see where you swing, though.

Omw to the city for a take-down. I get paid 5 hours to work for maybe 3, and get 30 bucks an hour to do it. I am quite pleased with this, but my stomach's bugging me...manual labor+queasy gut=general discomfort.
1708  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Zelda LttP 3D on: April 17, 2013, 01:14:23 PM
Link to the past was my first SNES game, and I have subsequently purchased every re-release of it ever made, aside from rare versions or special collectors versions.


Damn Nintendo, just when my dislike for them hits a peak, I see something like this and I long for it....now I need to buy a 3ds.

Real men just hack off the limb, Agent D.
Dude, if I lose an arm or my eyesight, I'm killing myself. I refuse to live without the ability to use both hands or see what I'm doing.

I thought circulation because it's heriditary in my dad's side of the family, especially in the legs. However, you do bring up a solid point Mesh. The pain isn't nearly bad enough to be a pinched nerve though, I think. Enflamed just seems really....idk, minor for me to worry about I think.
