Isn't it 12 hours? 8 hours just sounds ridiculous. Cur scenes alone are about that long haha.

I'm not sure, I always just opened the disc tray to skip them lmao.

Yeah, play it blind. There are missables, but don't ruin the magic with a guide. If you're super OCD about those, you can play again :)

Plus, if you're going for 100%, you have to get to the final dungeon in 8 hours to get Excalibur II, which is... not easy.

Steal from everything, never sell anything, and use everyone.

Also, watch all the ATEs because they're like skits from a Tales game.

The new (relatively speaking) Pool of Radiance was pretty wonky, if I recall. At least it had Elmo.

That's the game with the infamous bug in the uninstaller that would remove your Windows folder as well as the game itself.

As infuriating as I might find that, I also would probably laugh.

So I've got about 6 hours on the game now, I love it. Skill system kicks ass, and the diversity of different kinds of skills is awesome even at level 13 out of 100. Loot system is great too. Rob, I appreciate your complaint that the action feels weak, but I couldn't disagree more, because it feels just as tight as any other ARPG I've played, to me. Also I'm going to keep harping on you until you play it with me :)

Saying the barter system is confusing and turns you off is like saying "Learning Dark Souls is confusing and doesn't tell me what to do, so it turns me off." There's a ton of flexibility in it, and because of how it's built, it encourages trade and picking up things you might not normally pick up. Also, it encourages player interaction because someone else may have something you need, and usually you'll have something they want.

Anyone else playing this?

It's a rough game to play, but I think a lot of the hate stems from it being "different" rather than bad. There are some genuinely cool and progressive features. The tech balancing system is neat, the combat is generally pretty solid, generation thing gives you some replayability, and the music is great. Unfortunately it often gets a bad rap because if you sit on the command input screen, the combat music won't change and the loop is pretty short-- it's dynamic and shifts depending on how well each round is going.

Srsly though, it has one of the coolest final boss themes in the series.

If someone did a collection of the old SSI games like Pool of Radiance, Curse of the Azure Bonds etc., I'd be pretty happy.

That would be really cool. I played those as a young lad and had no idea what I was doing. It would be fun to play them again now with some semblance of cognizance. The new (relatively speaking) Pool of Radiance was pretty wonky, if I recall. At least it had Elmo.

How about an HD remake of the Playstation version of Tales of Phantasia in English.  The GBA port (aka only English release) was not very good.

The GBA version is the only one I ever beat, and I agree. It was quite... not good. Or, even better, how about an HD remake of the PSP version with the voice acting and skits!

KH1 Final Mix was fun for the extra boss battle and the cutscenes, as well as a couple of the new attacks it added to smooth things out. I think the addition of reaction commands will be something neat to see, too.

Is the game broken into a generation system like Phantasy Star 2?

That's actually Phantasy Star III.

</pedant>

That's what I meant to say :) And it's an important distinction. I thank you for making it.

Incidentally, PSIII is underrated.

Eugh...Atomos in HD. That would be utterly horrifying.

In the best way.

Also FFIX in HD would be awesome.

That would actually take them more work.

^ that.

Remember, Final Mix in KH1 had no additional voice acting, just some cut up parts of the old VA-- and it was in English, too. I think it would take them more work to go back and change it to regular KH. Plus, they can make an advertising bullet point out of it in the US-- NEVER BEFORE SEEN CONTENT
