Leveling my idolized SR Eri is pretty damn eternal...
Makes me wonder how long an idolized UR would take.

pretentious "mature" writing

I'm not sure where you'd get the 'pretend'.

Right at the beginning you get Arngrim's story which is one of the best:

Yeah, that's...actually what I thought was stupid and pretentious. The lesson there is that war is bad, and they force-feed that lesson down your throat with every single blatantly-written line. Maybe pretentious is the wrong word? How does 'stupid' sound?

Huh? There is nothing in there about how war is bad.

This is about a man who realized he spent his entire life without thinking; simply being a brute who built a superiority complex on the backs of everyone weaker than himself.
All the battles in which he thought he was a paragon were nothing but scuffles without sense or purpose.
Even if he was better than everyone else, he accomplished nothing.

ALSO!!!
IMPORTANT AS MOST PEOPLE MISS OUT ON THIS FEATURE!

In the Sacred Phase, when they say your einherjars did something, you can VIEW that something.

the game sells "tragedy" very well, IMO

Exactly!
I love how the game points out the futility of one single life.
Everyone tries to be a hero but they all end up dying in vain.

Grey: So there was nothing I could do after all. I am worthless.

I'd argue getting through Lezard's castle (Ch4?) is the hardest thing the game throws at you.  You just need to remember to send one character up every chapter to keep Odin happy and you can even keep all the "sacred spoils" you get from each dungeon.

Even then, you can just use your entire supply of "tome of alchemy" there if it's too hard.

The Forest of Spirits is another pretty nasty spot because of the mandragoras that love to hit the back row.
I just bring a mage that has ice spells because they freeze pretty easily.

I need to get around to playing Valkyrie Profile.

Honest question: Does ANYONE ever bother cooking poptarts?

If it's a cold winter morning, sure.

Speaking of potions: Why do Hi-Potions do the same amount as regular potions? What's the point? And why do potions heal so little??? I get 50hp max...

Potion and Hi-Potion heal the same amount, but Hi-potion should heal more HP.
I'm guessing you are low level if it's not showing

I honestly think the only boss that really gave me trouble on 'normal' was this fucker


Like said, Vesperia only gets better with the more time you put into it.  When overlimits and those "quick kills" are introduced, things start to get interesting, and with my battle skills, combat becomes much more fluid.
Seeing as how this is largely the most recommended "new" Tales title, here's hoping a PS4 version happens one day.

I'll forever find it hilarious that THIS boss was the demo.
I mean, how could you pick any worst lol

Most were expecting the game to be delayed.
I can't say it's much of a surprise.

Dear lord I take my time on games

^ Also my reaction.

Especially the FF titles. I clocked at least double everything there.

Truth = I have been a raging asshole to a lot of you in the past and for this I am truly sorry.

Yeah, my early posts were pretty rude sometimes.
I guess I mellowed out as time passed because I got to know people here as more than strangers on the Internet.

I look at stuff I just posted sometimes when I think it's a good post. I don't look at really old stuff... UNTIL NOW!
Let's see some of these gems:

BTW, if an adventurer wants to buy and equip an item that is worst then what he has... put the price to an extremely high amount if you're merchant level (bargaining power) is high -_-

Louie: Hi Recette, I'd like to purchase this Pirate Hat.
Recette: No you don't. Sure, you get +4 ATK, but you lose 13 DEF and 3 MDEF.
Louie: Yeah, but helmets are for tanks, and tanks aren't cool. Pirates are the way to go nowadays.
Recette: Ok ok... here 130% the amount. I know you're poor, so you'll never buy it.
Louie: 130%?!? Recette, that's clearly too much!
Recette: I know.
Louie: Can't you make it cheaper?
Recette: Nope, sticking to it.
Louie: I don't have that much money you know...
Recette: Well, guess you're keeping your helmet then, huh.
Louie: Ok, you drive a hard bargain, but I'll take it.
Recette: Wait wha?
Louie: *equips Pirate Hat, trashes Ancient Helm*
Recette: fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu
Louie: yar!

Sue from Grandia.

THAT'S the epitome of womanliness? She doesn't even have pubes =/



^ hahaha awesome

I'd buy Ar Tonelico 3 even if it was just a black screen for 100 hours, as long as I get to hear the music.

The difference between a fan of Naruto and a Narutard is akin to the difference between admiration and obsession.

a pathetic kid who wanted more notoriety and fame for doing something, and it backfired.

The funny thing is, before the court case, I'd say 5,000 people knew Hotz. Usually those hanging around psx scene.

For the records, I also think he looks like a douche, but I don't judge him about it... but man, an image change would help.
I mean, if he was a valet at an hotel, I wouldn't give him my keys.
...
..
.
Get it, MY KEYS!!!
badum tish!

^ PS3 root key

No boner - F
Half boner - D
Boner - C
Fap with it when teacher gets home - B
CLASS DISMISS I GOT URGENT BUSINESS TO ATTEND TO - A


^ Obligatory pony

I know I'm beating a dead horse again, but I don't mind if a game has no story as long as the rest is solid. If there is a story, it needs to be at least descent (good or great is even better though).

What I can't stomach is a stupid story.
This happens a lot in Japanese games because they feel obligated to bend the story to include tons of stupid tropes.

ex:
I am Captain Edge Maverick; on a very important mission to save the human race.
I command the space kindergarten, which is one of the most advanced space craft ever made.
I was specifically chosen for this mission because of my youthful ignorance, teenage angst and the fact that I know how to wield a sword. Indeed, most aliens have learned of our technology and became completely immune to any kind of ranged weaponry we have created (with the exception of bows)
I have full faith in my crew, including a mentally retarded traumatized underage orphan alien, a retarded underage alien cat girl and a bird brain winged girl and their dedication to save the human race, which they have never heard of until they met us.

I could go on, but I think that's enough...

^ I have bashed SO4 so many times...

How does the DS one fit into everything?



20 years in the future, where Dice is a world renowned artist, I'll get to go on TV and say I have her panties.

^ I'm still waiting Dice...

Steam is adding Canadian dollar currency (and thus regional pricing) October 7th.
Enjoy getting screwed like on consoles.
