Anyone cleared the Hard Female Robin map? I'm getting slaughtered with my low-res main team. :P Cleared Normal though...
I'd put this in the middle - 6 or 7. I appreciated and loved it at the time, but looking back at it, there's so much more depth in pretty much every other game in the series. The main four are great, but there is so much squandered potential.

It's still probably my favourite new release of last year (I've not played Cold Steel or many, many other games) but it took me less than a month into 2017 to find something I enjoyed more.
I don't. I already kind of regret spending $20 on SO3. I'm not doing it again.

That's your worst?!

My worst was... terrible. Takumi was a focus character at the time and the batch of orbs contained four neutrals. I thought: "This is it! The odds will never be better!"

One 3* Wrys (my third), one 3* Matthew and two 3* Virions (my fourth and fifth, IIRC) later, I started to wonder if my phone was feeling suicidal. The blue and final orb was a 4* Oboro and I love her, so it was not a total loss, but still...
Wow... that's lame.
The game is unique in the sense that it already had trophies, so adding them is moot.
I don't even know why they bring up disk swap and loading times as pros since both those were fine (DC version of course).
So you have share features and a graphic bump so little you could probably get better results with the PS2 version and an emulator.

SO1 went 3D on the PSP with 1 extra character.
SO2 had awesome new art (loli Rena is debatable though) and 1 extra character.

Part of me wants them to announce more about this and give me a reason to actually get it =(
I guess I wasn't living the straight white male fantasy enough for this game.
Xv is definitely top 3 for me, maybe even top 2 (dunno if I like it better than tactics just yet). For me, the dudebro aspect of it is what sold me. They act like 4 buds, and it was the most engrossing aspect of the adventure. It wasn't fake sounding or nonsensical how they came together, and their interactions with each other felt genuine, whereas watching a skit in Tales games feels...awkward most of the time, albeit hilarious. Even the after fight commentary is truly real sounding, reminding me of my post workout convos with buddies. Yeah, the story is a little disjointed, sure some things just happen and leave you saying "huh?", but I'm ok with all of that. Even Aranea's random pop ins feel more realistic than other games adding strange new people to the party for some nonsense reason (I'm looking at Rokurou in Tales of Berseria atm).
Pretty sure it's just a PS2-On-PS4 title, unless I'm mistaken. I doubt they'll do much more to it than what we saw in Wild Arms 3 or Ape Escape 2...or any of the others, I haven't been keeping up, okay?!
Hd upscaling is all they're doing, but that means dick squat this day and age.
The only thing I hated about SO3 was the complete garbage sound mixing and the lack of individual volume sliders. It was always impossible to hear the characters over the game's music.

I don't remember SO3 looking that bad
