He ran out of stamina?

That might actually have been the case (as I seem to have been posting quite a bit in this thread lately).

Also, it is unfortunate that those weapon Missions are for physical types only as they seem to love throwing you against Armors with type advantage against you.

Depends if you want Zestiria spoilers as well. But I'm still recovering from the ending too.

Tales of games are usually terrible at final arcs, but Berseria's was pretty spot on.

If it's not clear from my review, I really loved this game. It's up there with Xillia, Abyss and Vesperia as one of my favourites.
NO, THIS WAS HORRIBLE! BAD THINGS HAPPENED! D IS NOT HAPPY!

I mean urgh, I'm dead still.

Spoiler: show
They brought back the magic gun?

I've decided to try for the Pie Ending, just because it's a Pie Ending.

If you ever wonder why you're so beloved by the folks here, remember posts like this.

I REALLY WANT TO SEE THE REST OF THE STORY IN THIS GAME.  Why has Youtube let me down?
There really isn't a whole lot of central plot to the game. What you would want to look up are the character events as those are where all the "plot" comes from. That and I guess the endings, although I could just tell you what happens in the Pie Ending if you are curious because it wouldn't be a particularly long synopsis.

@Rook I would personally send David Cage a home-made cake after completing that game, which would also contain a bear trap, specifically so I could impair his ability to pen any future stories ever again. Sadly, we're about 10 years too late for that...

You need to hold down L2.

Also...

Your plot suggestions is what I wish happened.


You know, I really, really liked this game, but I've got next to no motivation to go back. I missed the Carnival, and I'll probably skip Episode Gladio and Prompto on release and just buy the DLC pack when it's cheap. I've not touched the game since I finished it. That ending was a killer, though.

I'm not sure if anyone remembers this game but here's a a 9 year old article on Indigo Prophesy's (Farenheit in Europe) "plot". 

http://www.shamusyoung.com/twentysidedtale/?p=1670

The whole article is worth reading but if you don't have time


I didn’t cover everything, but throughout the game we have:

Superhero powers borne of exposure to a radioactive artifact.
2,000 year old Mayan Shaman with magic powers.
A shadow government conspiracy to cover up a series of public murders.
A psychic (Carla’s gay neighbor) giving a tarot card reading that tells the future.
A blind old woman who uses psychic powers to coax out erased memories.
A Golden Child with all the secrets to the universe.
Sentient AI that can manifest itself as a glowing Tron thing and reanimate the dead.


[spolier]You also become a kung-fu zombie at the end, then have sex and get your GF pregnant[/spoiler]

Admit it, if this was the plot to Mother 4, you would have preordered it. David Cage is a genius.

@Rook I was thinking that Inuyasha had a lot of basic similarities to Ushio & Tora, but with Takahashi's special brand of character recycling thrown in.

Never read any Takahashi magna and never watched Ranma so can't really judge it. Saw the 1st 25 or so episodes of Maison Ikkoku and didn't like any of the characters so I sold the DVD set.

I'd probably have to pick Inuyasha which for the 1st 40-50 episodes was tremendous. If Inuyasha was only 2 seasons it probably would have been even better than the all-time great anime that it ripped off, Blue Seed (not that ripoffs are bad, and I'm pretty sure that BS is a ripoff of an earlier anime as well).

I also think that either serious or comedic anime romances are better done when they are kept short. Crunchyroll has Looking up at the 1/2 Moon now. Its a romantic anime that mostly serious and works extremely well because its the perfect length, 6 episodes.
