My first response was "That's a woman?"

And you didn't call an ambulance/have someone take you to the hospital? Because, seriously, this sounds very irresponsible. Think of could have happened...

Luke (Tales of the Abyss)- As another poster mentioned, he is just plain unlikable the first 1/3rd of the game. Yeah, it was intentional, but still hard to bear until the time he changes.

I didn't mind it too much, mostly because the other characters agreed with me. It's much more annoying when the rest of the cast thinks it's perfectly okay for a character to be a complete a-hole/mary sue/annoying helium filled mascot character or whatever.
Code:
And for characters to think "oh he destroyed a town with his own powers and killing lots of people, but now he's being so goody but we'll see... *after a few seconds* oh! he doesn't seem so bad".



I was so glad they reacted that way! I read some topics on gamefaqs and people seemed to think their reaction was totally uncalled for. If I had been in the seem situation, I would have reacted the same. Just imagine
Code:
you spend nearly a whole day in a miasma filled town trying to save the population. You leave the spoiled brat alone for a moment and BOOM. The lands drops into this underground sea of poisoness mud and pretty much everyone dies. You'll die to if you don't get the fuck out of there and find a safe place soon. No wonder they snapped at Luke. The situation alone is enough to put anyone on edge and if your friend/ally is the one to blame...

Almost finished with Radiant Mythology! Just several hours of grinding and one final boss left to go.

Luke is being an asshole and won't come join me for the final mission. I dragged him along to so many mission so he could gain some levels, all for nothing :( Ah well, generics are stronger anyway.

Fine. Gimme Kingdom Hearts II. People say I really need to play the Kingdom Hearts games and if I aquire one this way, I may actually put it in the PS2. I'd feel guilty if I didn't.

You're going to need a lot of playthroughs to nab all the costumes since there are three events where you can get them but only the characters that participate in them gets the costumes and the titles ,and there's only enough room for two or three characters per event (and each event offers a different costume).

Ugh, that was so annoying in ToS. I was so glad getting costumes was much easier in TotA. Yay for Peony and his weird hobbies!

Still playing TotW: RM. I'm somewhere near the end, I think. I completed 70% of the quests and there aren't many good ones left to do. Dueling the Tales characters isn't exactly a good idea, since I'm a mage. Though there are disadvantages, I love this class! My damage output is amazing! About 3000 points in five seconds, almost twice as much as the other characters. Oh and I got some shiny legendary equipment. I like the staff, but the robe makes my character look like a cosplayer. I guess I'll stick to the Rune Robe.

You don't have to feel bad, I would have been happy with one game. If you send me too much, you'll make me feel quilty! Think about what that will do to your karma :P

The fat apple bracelet was just a trial version. It didn't come out like I wanted and it would have been hard to sell, so I put it in there as well. Both the Zelda and Pac-man bracelets are types I make quite often, they're not unique or anything, just a nice extra.

Wow, unlike most Tales characters, Luke is actually useful in Tales of the World! He can take a hit, which is a good thing since every computer controlled character turns into masochist. Sure, he's not much more than a meat shield, but that is exactly what I need right now, since I'm a frail mage and all that. Tear isn't so bad either. Her normal attacks are ranged, so she doesn't go near enemies. Now I need a fourth member... I was thinking Kratos, but he's like 15 levels behind and TotW has this weird system where lower level characters get LESS Exp, so they have no chance of catching up.

There are like two dozen characters from Tales games and about 2/3rds of them are playable. Too bad most of them are worthless. They're generally weaker than the generic mercenaries and the AI doesn't suit their jobs. Rutee has the spells to be a fairly good healer, but she insists on standing almost next to the enemy when casting them.

The skits are kinda funny though. It's like a big, silly crossover fanfic. Reid is Genis' and Lloyd's classmate, Tear considers working at Rutee's inn because she and Luke are running out of money, which is mostly Luke's fault etc. Oh and the world is ending, because some dimension traveling monster is trying to eat it, or something.

Tales of the World: Radiant Mythology AI is really, really stupid. And suicidal. I solo'd a strong storyline boss as a L40 mage, just because Stahn and Leon thought it would be a great idea to stand in front of the boss and do nothing half of the time. The healer, who was also very, very idiotic (kept trying to cast spells while within range of the enemies attacks, absolutely brilliant), couldn't keep up and hey, there is only a finite amount of life bottles. So I ran around in circles, throwing fireballs, until mr. boss went down. It was much easier that way.

My brother out about Suikoden Tierkreis and my DS disappeared again. In return, I stole his PSP. At the momentI don't have much to play on it beside Tales of the World: Radiant Mythologie, but I was in the mood for a game like that, so it isn't so bad. I'm a L26 mage. It's probably not the best class to contol, but since all the melee characters are so clunky I might as well play a mage. At the very least I'm smarter than the AI...

Tetris.

You need to put that PS2 to better use, seriously. There are plenty of awesome PS2 RPG's that can be found in bargain bins and the used game sections for pleasant prices. Persona 3, for instance, isn't too hard to find and fits you like about RPGs. And play a Tales game or two. I recommend Tales of the Abyss (PS2), but Tales of Vesperia (Xbox360) is the most recent one and easy to find new and used.

You've played a lot of Fire Emblems, so you'll probably like other SRPG as well. Vandal Hearts (PSone) is butt ugly, but the gameplay is great. Front Mission is also a good choice if you want a SRPG with a serious storyline.


As for the retro stuff, Terranigma is awesome.

I remember, that's all I can say right now. I remember, that you told us originally. Other than that I'm at a loss of words for the moment.

Though I don't know if we are able to agree on the origin of your vision, I do believe you have seen what you've seen. Thanks to years of restless sleep I've had plenty of strange dreams and hallucinations. I doubt they were as terrifying as your vision of hell, but I've heard my share of blood curdling screams.
