(actually, was there ever a Tales of character that was explicitly confirmed to not be a virgin?)
(Future Ludger doesn't count)

Anyone who turned down talking to the Unicorn in the Aselia games.

Oh, and Will from Legendia and Stahn and Rutee in the Destiny games. They all have kids.

I don't think Pinkie Pie would ever envision a party like the one Alabama Thunderpussy throws here.  

This place gets weird when I'm at work.

Speaking of work.

Defacto project leaders keep changing direction on what they want us to do. Yesterday we were gonna write use cases, so I started doing that. This afternoon they're like nope changing direction. Welp.

I need to stop thinking about work, it's just kind of upsetting me.

Also I shotgunned like half a coffee after lunch and got some delightful caffeine shakes. I can't really talk well when I get those.

That's exactly how I feel right now.  How can people have such strong feelings about this character before even playing the game?  What did they even know about her?

She has breasts and, most likely, an unpenetrated vagina.

(Alvin and Malik did have prior serious relationship... best I can think of)
(Oh... Klarth according to the DeJap script isn't one... not sure about the original text though)

Costume DLC? Whatever, it's cosmetic.
Grade-boost DLC? Whatever, grade shop is still there.
Cameo mystic arte DLC? Whatever, it's a silly little bonus.
Skit DLC? Oooookay... at least it's free? (for now...?)
Story/Scenario/Episode DLC? Nope.

Wait, what?  I thought Story/Scenario/Episode DLC was the good kind of DLC.  It's actual extra content, not paying $20 for some friggin costumes or something.

Having heard about this Alisha  "controversy" I have to chuckle- Considering that no one has even played this game up until just now (and I'm guessing 90% of the people posting away with various negative opinions on the game probably haven't played the game AT ALL and won't until it comes west), its funny how many out there on various message boards seem to have a strong opinion on this subject, to the point where it seems like this is almost ruining the game for them.  Its like, how can somebody be THAT attached to a character whose game they haven't even played yet?  Its not like you can have an opinion on much of anything, other than how you think the characters "looks".  How about actually playing the game to completion with an open mind, and letting Namco to tell the story it intended with this game before passing judgement?

I'll admit I know nothing about programming a camera, but it seems like the kinda thing that could be fixed with a patch. Even if it needed to be completely recoded, it still seems like it could be sent out as a download. Pity I don't remember any Tales game ever getting patched. Ever.

Specially in regards to the battle field camera

What little I saw of the camera in the reveal video does make it look like it's crap.
Hoping they would fix it was pretty futile =/

@Dice: You say that, but then you had to post a picture of some douche photo bombing a picture at a upscale horse race with his tweed suit, his bowler and his smugness standing among societies' job creators with their silk top hats, their pea-coats and their white carnations tucked into their lapels.

That said, considering that Alisha's original design has her rocking plate mail arm guards along with a ZR, I can't really say that this one's any worse (though it does away with her color scheme as the team's Pink Ranger).

Code:
Apparently, according to Siliconera, the other human dies at some point in the story as well, making this really the Corey/Rose power hour. While it doesn't make the Alisha thing any less scuzzy, at least its no worse than what I expected of Bandai and their Tales of Studio, especially after Xillia. Their cageyness about those two (especially in light of their series current mandate of at least having 4 playable males and 4 playable females for title purposes) made it pretty goddamn obvious that it was going to be entirely about Borey and his invisible friends. I'm more shocked by the fact that Rose is at all relevant since A) she's female and B) was officially announced at the eleventh hour.

Besides, look on the bright side, we now have our first female version of the Flynn archetype. Progress!


Its kinda funny, I've been a fan of the series since Symphonia landed on gamecube and I've played every localized entry since, other than some basic previews introducing Sorey and Alisha, around when it was announced showing I've largely stayed away from anything remotely "spoiler-rific" concerning this game. 

Having heard about this Alisha  "controversy" I have to chuckle- Considering that no one has even played this game up until just now (and I'm guessing 90% of the people posting away with various negative opinions on the game probably haven't played the game AT ALL and won't until it comes west), its funny how many out there on various message boards seem to have a strong opinion on this subject, to the point where it seems like this is almost ruining the game for them.  Its like, how can somebody be THAT attached to a character whose game they haven't even played yet?  Its not like you can have an opinion on much of anything, other than how you think the characters "looks".  How about actually playing the game to completion with an open mind, and letting Namco to tell the story it intended with this game before passing judgement?

As for her apparent DLC episode/side story/epilogue, whatever that may be, since it will effectively be free (for two weeks, which yes, is a limited time frame, but if you are a big fan of this series, don't tell me you aren't grabbing this day one), so no big deal.  Costumes/novelty mystic arts attacks, and other boosts as DLC are kind of goofy, but alas are reality for gaming in 2015.  If this revenue helps keep Namco producing games in this series (and bringing localized versions West, most importantly to me)

I'd bet real money that the free DLC thing is only for Japan and only as an apology to the fans that are pissed on getting burned by Zesty's scuzzy marketing when they Day 1'd the game.

And that's where a good deal of the anger is coming from. Zesty pulled a classic bait-and-switch given all the initial focus that Alisha was getting (she got a figure) compared to how quickly she got shoved onto the bus in game, especially given that she was being talked up as an important dynamic to the game's plot; with associates, potential antagonists, a contrast to the main character's plot and everything and none of that matters because its hard to have a side plot when the character central to said plot goes "I must go now, for my planet needs me". And while I don't know the exact score (or even claim to know right now), its pretty obvious that what was originally stated and what was ultimately delivered are two different things, and this discrepancy is not for good reasons.

There's also a lot of hate towards the clunkiness of the game in general. Specially in regards to the battle field camera and multiplayer with more than 2 people playing being complete ass.

On another note- agree totally with the love for Vesperia's art.  Honestly, the console games released since IMO look like games on some kind of previous generation console next to Vesperia.  Why they didn't stick with that style is WAY beyond me.
