Best part really was the "recap" at the beginning because it was hilarious.

Why, what happens?
It is a climax from an in-universe movie (presumably written by Celestial Being) that one of the characters is watching. The movie is basically a super sentai version of Gundam where the villain from season 1 is behind everything in a full blown evil overlord space suit and the "Gundam Meisters" are about as cheesy as imaginable.

And I finished Jude's story last night; really loved the game overall, and while its a bit unpolished and the story could had used a bit more romance and plot development, I'd say this is my favorite Tales games, sharing the first place in the podium with T. of the Abyss; Now I'm off to play Graces F and do Milla's story.
As for Xillia's story and character, I really liked Jude and Millia's development, and their bittersweet ending, while makings sense for the overall story, still hurt a bit; I've always hated a bit how the developing teams of the Tales Series does their hardest to avoid canon coupling or resolved romance on the series; sure, it helps avoid getting involved in fandom wars, but I would love to see a Tales game with a definitive and resolved love story.

Oh just wait they make a canon coupling in Tales of Graces F......which consists of two characters with some of the worst romantic chemistry in a Tales of game. And I am sure that I just pissed off someone or another with that comment. Oh well.

As an aside, for reason I really don't see the Jude/Milla relationship as being "romantic". I realize that Jude has something of an obsession with Milla, but I just don't feel like the core of his feelings for Milla are romantic. He probably wouldn't be opposed to a romantic relation ship with her, but I think that is far from his first feeling when thinking about her. I feel weird saying this because I normally look for romantic relationship subtexts in every media I consume, but just not feeling it this time.

Recently watched the Gundam 00 movie. It was alright. I was sort of meh on the new mechs, especially the 00Quan. The plot was fine although it seemed sort of scattershot in some points. Sort of a let down from the main series, but it wasn't horrible. Best part really was the "recap" at the beginning because it was hilarious.

I am now at the very end of Tales of Xillia, with a ton of sidequests to track down before curbstomping the final boss (level 70ish right now). Overall I have enjoyed it. Going to go for a Milla playthrough after this.

I noticed something yesterday while I was thinking about the game.....

Code:
The whole boosters are bad for you subplot seems to have just been completely dropped. It was brought up, sorta mentioned for an hour afterwards and then blam falls off the face of the world.

A couple of choice quotes.....

Quote
Spencer explained his position: "We built a platform for gamers. ..."
Which is why the XBone was so well received...

Quote
"“Now, we have a vision, and we've stayed on that vision around the digital ecosystem we want to put on Xbox Live,” he said.
And if I had any interest in the XBone at any point due to their reversals (which I didn't), this would probably kill it.

I contemplated buying the Elize swimsuit DLC just to turn Teepo into Mu (Mew?)
That DLC doesn't turn Teepo into Mieu (I think that is the proper spelling). It just gives you an accessory of Mieu that you can attach to anyone.
667  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Tales of Xillia on: August 21, 2013, 07:16:09 AM
I would say the latter is more accurate... Anyway for anyone who's interested:
Leon's custom is well worth it.  Dat Irony of Fate
Idolmaster customs are probably worth it.  They all look pretty good
I was hoping for Fighting of the Spirit to be the music for Mint, or Kratos, but it's not the case...
Farah one was not worth.  All in my opinion of course
The Mint outfit has Take up Your Cross though!....or at least I think that is what the song's title is. That moved Elize to number two spot because I also got Milla's Dhaos costume and I don't care for the Dhaos music.

Shocked that we got the Idolmaster titles. Wonder if we will get the Star Driver ones also. I don't recall liking any of those, but it still would be cool to have all costumes released.

I think dead dads are more trendy. I'm having trouble recalling fathers that were actually alive during the game.

Off the top of my head, characters that had dads alive at the beginning of the game who they interact with at least a little:
-Jude
-Asbel (who has the "father of the year")
-Luke
-Lloyd
-Cless

So finished Chapter 1 yesterday. Enjoying the game for the most part.

Anyone else notice that Tales of games seem to have a trend of the main character's dad (if he is in the game) being a failure as a father? I don't know if it applies to every single Tales of game, but it seems to be more common than in other series. Only exception that immediately comes to mind is probably Cless's dad, but he was only sort of in Phantasia.

Ivar just makes me think Ikea shelving unit. 

*googles*

Ivar is also a chair.

And a doormat. HEY-O!

He may be a doormat, but he has still managed to dress a major deity as a stripper. And thus he is also extremely creepy.

Wonder if there are going to be any other new characters besides Yukari and Junpei. Looks to me like there is enough space on char select for two more characters.

Is Rowen geting no love because he's old?

Man admits to hating cat girls.  He was a man after my own heart....age is just a number dammit!
Wait that bastard hates cat girls? He must burn at the stake!!!!! And to think I was considering putting him in my battle party. >.>



....:p

Also Morgan bullshits the timeline by coming from an even separate future where the Avatar did have a kid with someone, rather than the "THE WORLD IS DOOOOOOOOOOOMED!!! :byodame:" future that Lucina and pals stem from.

Which gets even more confusing when Morgan has a sibling since she apparently exists in the original timeline since they know her. I assume original timeline Morgan went back in time with the others since there is surprise at her(him) being there.....which should mean there is a second Morgan somewhere out there that we never find.

So my thoughts.

Battle system is kind of bland. I mean I don't mind it or anything, but I just find myself using normal attacks with combo arts occasionally just to build up my numbers as I recall there is a title for using a certain number of them.

Shop system is annoying as pointed out earlier since I almost always find myself getting a discount on items I have already bought. I think I get the reason (the intention being to make it easier for people to catch up and people aren't "expected" to have the latest and greatest available), but it is still annoying because it is always just after.

Like my three characters alright so far. Curious to get proper introductions to all the rest. I've met one other party member so far. Really torn at the moment as to who my final party will consist of. "Puppet girl" is extremely likely since she seems to be the heavy caster. Really like rod girl and the old guy from the opening, but including both of them leaves only one open spot for Jude or Milla both of which I want to include. Alvin is....the bottom of a fairly decent barrel so he is out of the running.

Side note, I really like Milla's....fighting archetype. She basically seems to fall into what I mentally refer to as a Pactknight (aka Mageknight who uses pact magic) archetype, or at least the closest that I can recall seeing in a video game before. I made a character back during middle/high school who uses a similar fighting concept so I like seeing it used even if the details are a little different (my character was a normal human who made pacts with the great elemental spirits rather than being their overlord). Also Maxwell has always been my favorite summon in Tales  games, so that is always a plus.
675  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Project Phoenix (another Kickstarter!) on: August 14, 2013, 06:55:07 AM
After looking at who was involved, I figured I would go all in and went with the 150 physical goods tier. Less certain about how good this will be compared to other games I've supported on Kickstarter (Project Eternity and Torment), but I am intrigued.

I'd be careful about the whole "dream team" claims.  Sands of Destruction, anyone?

Oh god don't give me nightmares. As I recall though Sands of Destruction wasn't so much a dream team as it was a random assortment of unimportant people who can truthfully claim to have worked on impressive games. At the very least they were missing any script writers who had worked on anything good before.
