Huh, what happened to Yuri and Leon? They usually rank high, don't they?

*Looks at small print*

Note that since both Yuri Lowell (Tales of Vesperia) and Leon Magnus (Tales of Destiny) have already been given the Hall of Fame status last Tales of Festival 2013, they were no longer allowed to be voted for, hence they're not in this list.

Well, that explains why the list looks a little weird. If you're going to kick out fan favourites, the newcomers and leftovers are bound to score better.

Anyway, random Xillia 2 thoughts:
1. Not many dogs around.
2. Lots of hairstyles inspired by Cruella deVille.

Kind of a silly comment, but I feel like it's a trope to make the 'missing parent' this PERFECT person.  That is the only impression we get of "daddy". POOR SHINJI IKARI HAS SUFFERED FOR YEARS WITH THE LOCKED-HANDED ASSWEED NERV DICKHEAD (WHO'S KINDA COOL).

In Elle's case it makes sense. She's eight years old and daddy's little girl, of course she's going to talk about how like he's the most awesome person that was ever awesome, because to her, he absolutely is.

Second area (North Eastern Section?) at the BOTTOM of the gorge (you gotta descend to it than ascend).

Thanks! I'm going to slaughter it tomorrow >:D

Ah, I thought I had already found one in Hamil. Oops.

But can a British royal kick ass with a katana and take down crime syndicates as some sort of side job?

Anyway, some more stuff, Dice style:

-Promise hat? That's so adorable! D: Part of me wanted to tell the truth, but that's a parent's job. Besides, it would be awful to ruin something so sweet in harsh times...

-I want characters to say funny things after battle, but this game seems to be low on victory skits.

-My hatred for box canyons is growing. Being able to visit nearly every location from the last game is nice, but there's almost nothing to do there. The game's structure is similar to that of Xenosaga, but that game really made me want to explore for the sake of exploring. In Xillia I'm just running to through box canyons to catch cats.

-Speaking of cats, it feels like I'm kidnapping the entire world's cat population in the name of the Queen of Crazy Catladies. Oh well, atleast they're useful... The 60-something I have right now are starting to bring back some bigger batches of items. Nice. But uhm, it feels like there are locations missing from the list. I don't see Hamil on there anywhere... I'm a going blind, is my game doing something weird or are the people over at Namco Bandai a bunch of Hamil haters?

-I like those optional bosses, but there's one I can't seem to find. The one in Bermia Gorde, where is it?

I have a list but only put RPGs on there. I started it way back in 2001, but pretty much every RPG I've ever beaten is on there - 240 titles in total. Tales of Xillia 2 will probably be number 241.

Hey, kings have responsibilities, you know? Can't just start throwing around tax payers money. He won't even pick up the tab after inviting your for a drink, and I bet your debt payments cost a little more than that.

Also, they use mobile phones to pay for everything, right? He's bad with those. Couldn't buy a train ticket if he tried, I bet.

I like (most of) Leia's outfit. The basics are cute and I love that hat, but she did over-accessoirise a bit. (Funny: our Lea wore reallife appropriate versions of that outfits before Xillia 2 was even announced.)

= Elize has gone from one of my least favorite characters to my most favourite.  She's so lovely now.  Probably a good idea, both for plot development of the youngest cast member, but also because old Elize and childish Elle would have been...just a BIIIT TOO MUUCH.

Elle and Elly... Yeah, I would hate to see that. I bet they'd would get along terribly. Elize was this quiet girl with a snarky side, and Elle's behaviour would have no trouble provoking that side. It become a verbal mudslinging match between Teepo and Elle...

It's a good thing Elize made so much progress in a year.

= I also like how quests seem to divide the party.  Jude x Milla, Rowen x Elize, and Leia x Alvin (the better 'ship' for dear Leia, IMO)

I'm glad they put Leia and Alvin together so much. A year couldn't have been enough to get over you know what. I think Leia is handling it better than Alvin, who seems to feel guilty about, well, nearly everything he did in the first game. Not that he shouldn't. I mean, he really should, that's normal for someone who isn't a heartless asshole. But it will be some time before he can really get on with his life, you know? Anyway, I'm glad they didn't just forget about the events of Xillia.

= Huh... I guess I missed the plot point where Rieze and Elympios were connected by a trip on a ship [in the new world?].

I'm not entirely sure how the whole barrier thing ever worked. I think it'd make sense if Rieze and the schism slightly below sealevel during Xillia, which would explain that crazy tsunami twenty years prior. Being underwater would lower their chances of being detected as well, I think? And when the the schism disappeared, Rieze was raised back to the surface and became a normal continent.

Okay, that still doesn't work considering how planets actually fit together, but the other decent explanation would be dimensional magic bullshit.

= I'm willing to buy into a father-daughter relationship between the 20-year-old aspiring chef Ludger and mystical waif Elle... but I'm certainly not feeling it.  A bad combination of Ludger's unfortunate muteness and Elle's squeaky anime brat voice is working against me chalking up their relationship toward being anything but contrived.

Why are the 'daughters' (and sometimes actual daughters) always called El-something anyway?

BTW random thought: Rollo's colouration is not scientifically correct. Point colouration in cats (and rabbits) is a form of partial albinism. Basically, their melanin production is heat sensitive thanks to a mutation. The colder parts of their bodies, like the face, paws, ears and tail are darker, while the rest of their body is a lighter colour. Even the lighter parts may become darker when the animals spends a lot of time in a colder environment. Anyway, it's impossible for Rollo to have one perfectly white paw.

Ah, Okunoshima, part dark side of WOII, part adorable rabbits.

Sorry, I guess I get a bit defensive when it comes to accents :) 'oo' is one of those sounds that can sound very differently depending on your accent, isn't it?
55  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Tales of PlayStation(s) revealed on: August 22, 2014, 02:04:09 AM
Maybe I'm hearing it wrong, but it sounds like atleast several characters do say 'Looger'.  I can't find a 'd' in there anywhere. While it's not exactly the same, if you were writing rhyming dialogue for some charming little RPG, you could get away with it.
56  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Tales of PlayStation(s) revealed on: August 21, 2014, 04:13:46 PM
I can't get used to the pronunciation of Ludger. I went to a school with the same name and that one sure as heel didn't rhyme with booger!

(On a completely different note: I laughed way to hard at the frog meme thing. I know a Lea, her name is pronounced Leia and she's a lot like Leia. A lot. Well, she's more mature since she's in her early twinties, but still, a lot like Leia. And this Lea, our Leia, she likes frogs. So yeah.)

Hey, us real people were busy texting and posting funny cat pictures over a decade ago. It's not science fiction anymore, just plain old science.

Also, with all this talk of the revived translation effort for ToD:DC, I wish to hell we had the older titles on Steam (since Banco is stalling on doing anything else with PSN).

From what I understood it's a resources thing. The main focus right now is getting recent games to the West. They really want to hurry up with Zestiria and of course they want Hearts R to succeed. I wouldn't be surprised if they started rereleasing older titles on PSN after that, but right now there are no plans. (And they didn't actually tell me this, but I bet they don't want to give us a Tales-overdose. Having their own titles compete with eachother would be bad business.)

My fingers are like that when I'm typing. It's like there's a weird autocorrect in my head.

Gragh wtf goddamnit have a conversation with us already!!!!

He won't. He can't. His dream is to be the very best spambot, like no one ever was. He'll have to overcome many disadvantages, such as that pesky humanity, but one day...
