This game gave me another case of the feels last night.  That's the second time this happened.  I think this has probably become my absolute favorite Tales RPG from a story based perspective.

Eww.  That is a terrible idea for an trophy reward.  Why reward tedium?

I am still plugging away at this game.  The combat itself is a blast.  I've played one interception mission and to be honest, I'm not sure if it will be a source of fun or frustration.

If you put it in a spoiler block and someone who hasn't played Ys VIII chooses to read it, it's on them.

I've played first person shooters on both PC and console.  Frankly, for that genre of game, mouse and keyboard is far superior.  It doesn't change the fact that I still find using a controller more comfortable.  Additionally, the thought of trying to play an Ys game with the mouse and keyboard interface makes me cringe.

I played for a couple of hours this morning.  The combat is a blast.  Also, while I do think the game is pretty, it isn't as impressive visually as other Playstation 4 games, which is fine since the game play is so good.

XSeeD. Accept no substitutes.

But then, I went and misread the announcement as Ys VIII delayed to unannounced fate. So really, its unfortunate, but I'm not surprised given how many times XSeeD had to delay their releases to make sure everything worked right *cough*TitS SC*cough*.
...I can't tell whether you are unaware of the fact that NISA is responsible for Ys VIII (despite the post you quoting saying NISA in the signature spot) or are aware and are just referencing them because they used to be involved with Ys. O.o
I'm surprised they passed on this game, actually.  My guess is that they either got outbid by NISA or their slate was full and couldn't take the project on.  Considering all the PC releases they've done of late, I'm thinking the latter.  I just hope that they do Trails of Cold Steel III.

I've gotten further along into the game.  I'm putting my comments into spoilers since the game is still a relatively recent release, even though anyone reading this thread has probably beaten the game ages ago.

Spoiler: show
So I got to the point where Innominant was revived and its aftermath.  Assuming the memories the crew saw as they escaped the Earthpulse, I can't help but think Melchior is a complete and utter bastard.  It's clear that his goal from before the Opening occurred was to revive Innominant.  After Artorius lost his wife and child he used the man's grief to manipulate him into following his plan.  Up until those scenes, I had believed that Artorius sacrificed Celica and his unborn child in order to begin the awakening of Innominant.  Instead, Celica gave her life to save Arthur.  His past is almost as tragic as Velvet's.

The one thing that does kind of upset me is that it turns out Laphicet (Velvet's brother, not the party member) chose to be sacrificed.  In some ways I think his act was selfish and selfless.  Part of his motivation is almost certainly a desire to give his own death meaning.  Instead of dying of illness, he can die giving humanity the power it needs to fight back against the daemons.  On the other hand, his request to keep this information from Velvet destroyed her.  I think the reason he asked to keep her ignorant is because if she knew, she would've been able to talk him out of it.  I think that was selfish on his part as his death destroyed her.

The one thing I'm wondering about now is if Melchior played a role in the villagers of Aball selling out Artorious and his family to those brigands turned daemons.  A part of me suspects he definitely had a role as I find it extremely convenient that he would be on hand at Aball during the opening.  If this is the case, please don't confirm or deny as I don't want to be spoiled.

The final scene during the crew's escape from the earthpulse gave me a case of the feels, I'm embarrassed to admit.  I found myself moved by Phi's devotion to Velvet and the depths of Velvet's grief and despair.  The actress who played Velvet did a superb job during the whole sequence.  You can sense her coming apart at the seams emotionally and psychologically during their escape.  If the acting had been done with the same level as Namco's earlier localization efforts, the whole thing would've fallen flat.  Seriously, the actress who played Velvet is good.

Needless to say, I can't wait to see what happens next.

I admit, I have a harder time finishing games than I'd like.  Especially if I don't stick with just one game at a time.  If I am playing a game, and then I also start another game along with it, odds are I won't finish either one.  I have to play just one at a time.
I've had the same problem.  It's why the only major game I'm playing now is Tales of Berseria.  I want to download Ys VII off Steam, but I know if I do that, I won't be playing Tales of Berseria for a while.  It sucks.

Also, noticed this story on the main page.  All I could think was garbage content for a garbage game.  The reason I think this is because Mobius Final Fantasy is a free to play game, which means I'm either going to be microtransactioned to hell and back or merchandise for their advertising partners.  My response to Square Enix if they expect me to play this game is a hearty and enthusiastic fuck you.

Artimicia, I noticed the second Agrias picture has text on it saying for Adult Only.  Not sure I want to know what the content behind that is.

Just keep in mind that quantities may be limited.

I think it's the standard price.  I paid the same thing when I purchased them.

So I just reached the point where Velvet returns to her home village for the first time.  Seriously fucked up what happened there.  The whole thing was a total mind fuck for Velvet.  I can't help but feel bad for what happened there.  On a side note, there is a Katz box by her house I didn't have enough Katz souls to open.  If I leave the region, will I be able to return to open it?

I'm pretty annoyed that my attempt to start Cold Steel this year, after all the GOTY hype II got last year, has been sidelined all the way to this point.  I still need to finish Sky 3, then promised a friend I would finally play Xillia 2.  Cold Steel feels FOREVER away!

I've spent around 3-4 hours after work every day playing Cold Steel 1 this past month.

Play Cold Steel. Now.

I do WANT to.  But I need to finish what I've got.  In the meantime, I keep deluding myself that CS1 will go on sale soon.
You can get CS1 for the Playstation 3 for $30.00 USD on XSeed's website.  The Vita version, I'm happy to note is also available for the same price.  I ordered both games from them and got them in a relatively reasonable time.  One thing I should caution you on is that they're not the fastest and don't offer tracking.  My copies were shipped first class mail, but I did get them in pristine new condition.

Well, there's the cellphone game.
Fuck the cellphone game.  It's freemium and therefore garbage.
Heeeyyy....not all freemium games are total garbage....entirely....maybe....ish?
I'm of the opinion that if I'm not paying for it, then I'm the merchandise and not the customer.  Also, I fucking hate advertising.  With a fiery burning passion.  I also loathe micro-transactions and think that whoever invented the idea should be executed by torture, non-fatal crucifixion then dipped in acid feet first.

Was watching the box score of the Dodgers vs Pirates game.  The Dodger's starter had a no hitter going into the tenth inning only to lose it by giving up a home run.  I'm not even a Dodgers fan and I still find myself feeling the sting.  I really do feel sorry for the Dodgers' starter.
