At least you got that far. I ragequit the game on the series of tightropes up to the first dungeon because no matter how I held the Wiimote, Link kept falling off. It wasn't just that though, the overly-long tutorial, insanely blurry graphics, stamina bar, sword-fighting and Fi repeatedly telling me how to do a puzzle I had already figured out on my own (finding those creatures in the woods) drove me over the edge that day. Still the only 3D Zelda game that I haven't beaten. No intention of ever touching SS again.

But I still love my gold Wiimote. <3

I'll be honest, I didn't even know Dragon Quest X had come out. I stopped paying attention to news on it once they had announced it was online. XD

I'd guess one of those four "resistance" characters from Twilight Princess. You know, the ones who help you get into the final few dungeons and then storm Hyrule Castle along with you. For that matter, maybe Zant.

I'd like to see Medli, myself. Din, Nayru, and Ralph! Ralph was an action guy! Let him in!

I hope they're all still super-British. Nice change of pace from the same voice actors again and again, honestly.

It's surreal that Pokemon I caught 11 years ago can finally return home to Hoenn.

While I dislike Hoenn's massive amount of sea routes, the main island is still my favorite region in the series. And they need to bring back the secret bases. That feature would be perfect for Street Pass.

If they offer another "special" edition without the figure like they did for the first Xillia, I'll probably go for it. Symphonia was pretty much the only one in which I was willing to shell out extra money for swag.

Currently own Annie and Ayesha. I'm going to be more mindful of going in continuity order when I get around to the Arland stuff.

Never knew Mana Khemia was part of this series though. Those games always looked intriguing but I saw those around the time I was about done with my PS2 and moving on to the next generation.

I loved having shortcuts. But Xenoblade Chronicles kind of spoiled me with those a bit.

Thank you! All I've ever known is the [spoiler][/spoiler] style and have spent the past three years on this site being all spoiler dodgy!

I LOVED that jazz! XD And just seeing the way the skyline looked in that city was such a "holy crap!" moment. You have this big world full of fantasy settings, and then you reach that city and it's like strolling through a Tales-version of San Francisco. That was awesome.

The shift in atmosphere was pulled off great, I just wish everything involving that part of the game had been as long as the first map. It really did feel rushed when it's just a city, two roads and two dungeons, one of which was optional.

(Also I can't figure out how to do spoiler tags for this particular style of message board, so I apologize. I'm trying to be vague as possible!)

Good to know. Thanks! :)

Well, I have no experience with the series beyond that single DS purchase. My assumption from the titles was that each game was standalone as long as the titles didn't share a name or place, so I just bought the cheapest installment Amazon had, which was Ayesha. If there's a continuing story or overall world continuity to the series, then should I play another game in the series first?
28  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Atelier Ayesha on: March 22, 2014, 01:25:35 AM
In a bizarre coincidence, I actually bought Ayesha off of Amazon earlier today. o_O

The only one I own is the DS one. Annie? Never cracked it open. Been meaning to someday as I clear my backlog.

Beat Xillia tonight. I loved the big twists, though I must say the second "half" of the game felt a bit rushed, as I expected a bit more to explore in the new area. That and the solution to the major problem seemed to come out of nowhere really fast. Not sure how I felt about the identity of the final boss. It's kind of the same situation as Vesperia where you weren't really fighting the person who had been the main antagonistic force in the game. But still a really enjoyable experience. Looking forward to Xillia 2. In the meantime, I started this right after Graces, and I'm a bit burnt out on this series for now.

I agree, Dice, wholeheartedly. Jude's just kind of there... mostly because he's just crushing on Milla, though I suspect (hope) he'll find his own reason to fight before long. Milla's kind of humorless barring some skits, and really bland on the whole, and Elize and Teepo are just... eh. I dunno. I know Teepo's supposed to be funny and Elize is supposed to be "awwww, look at the shy little girl character", but they aren't really doing it for me. Rowen is pretty neat though. I actually like seeing a character this old as a party member.

Leia... she gave me shades of Natalia when she hopped on. Sixth character who kind of sneaks into the group, is a childhood friend of the hero with a crush, is kind of out of place compared to the rest of the group. I'm still not sure how I feel about Leia. Out of place is really the only way I can describe her right now.

Also, that freaking mine in Leronde is broken. I mean the side one with the Devils Arms monster in it. I managed to grind twenty levels in that place and even beat that boss. Now I'm steamrolling everything. XD

I also love the lilium orb system far more than the title skill system from Graces, and the shop upgrade system is addicting as fuck. I'd say so far I'm loving everything about this game more than the previous installments except for the story.
