Riveria:  The initial charm has worn off.  I've cleared the forest level, and started on the water level.  The battle difficulty is still non-existent.  The QTE elements have me save-scumming.  The characterization of the harem party members is bland, and the plot appears to be stuck in first gear.

I don't hate this game, but it is a disappointment.

Since I commit myself to finishing everything that enters my backlog, maybe I need better selection criteria, huh.

Alundra - Anyone who has done the desert temple in this game has no reason to complain about any Zelda water temple. Dear God was that the most annoying dungeon in any game ever. It would have been obnoxious even without the sand mechanic, but that just made it ten times worse.

Just to report back, in case anyone is interested. :)

Bought the game today and played it with my gf tonight. We both enjoyed it! She isn't into stat/gear very much, which I anticipated, but still had a good time. Looks like this'll be a regular one for us. Thanks all!

Yeah, these days the game is practically all soloable. There's a couple things that require a party but there's probably less than 10 major story missions that fall under that category. The major story missions also no longer have level caps so you can simply outlevel them.

I do do some grinding in between the story missions that I'm not showing, but I've been doing it all solo. Back when RPGFan had a couple people playing at the US launch, it would take weeks to reach level 30, even in groups. I can do that in a few hours now. Back then you'd earn like 75 EXP for killing an Decent Challenge monster. Now I can get like 1000 each depending on what I'm doing.

Another huge boon is that I can summon NPC helpers which act as party members. You can see them in a couple of the screenshots I took, I do try to leave them out of the shot though.

Joe Hisaishi - 1st Movement The Legend of Ashitaka

Been in a huuuuuge Joe Hisaishi mood for the past 2 weeks.  Love his Princess Mononoke Symphonic Suite!

Hmm I'm not too big on the tales series.  I've only played Phantasia, Destiny, Legendia, Innocence, Symphonia, and Vesperia. Out of those I've only completed Legendia and Phantasia.  For which one I always go back to, I find myself going back to Tales of Legendia a lot.  Pretty much once or twice a year.  I know it gets a ton of hate, but for some reason I just love Legendia (honestly one of my favorite RPGs) a heck of a lot.  If you ask me though, I really have no idea why I like it so much :P it just makes me happy haha.

For some reason I never really got into the new tales games with the changed battle system compared to the older 2D system.  Cause, similar to Nilson, whenever I play the ones with the 3D(?) battle system I tend to think of and go back to Star Ocean hahaha

I felt the game was a surprisingly great blend of mature, fun, and everything you want in a game.  I think the Castle System is *perfect*, and I think that adjunct has been key in making the game's the success they are.  Great game and even recently I still was 'impressed' with it despite its age.

Oh, I do love its need for overuse of punctuation.

"What's that!!!!!!?"

Call me crazy but I fully expect the "Tales of" catalog to slowly make its way to PC when Namco sees the Zesty numbers.

I think that's the point of this move.  No one even asked for Tales of Symphonia to be there, so...

Vesperia, I think will definitely be a matter of time as well. 
And, god willing, Tales of Destiny PS2. :P

Personally I think 20th Century Boys was the worst of Urasawa Naoki's works.  It was so contrived...well most of his stuff can be pretty hit-or-miss though.  Monster was fantastic but my fondness for it is not enough to overlook the serious flaws in much of the other stuff he's written...
