I like the one where they attack Hubert for his incompetent Healing skills.

Yes! And the one where Asbel tries to get them to do the "We are awesome!" quote, but they all say different stuff. :P

Doing some side quests before I tackle Ghardia Shaft (again), first attempt at it ended pretty miserably, lol

Not that it matters since I already bought the game, but exposure helps...

Doing some side quests before I tackle Ghardia Shaft (again), first attempt at it ended pretty miserably, lol

I too am tackling the side quests at the moment and let me just say..... sandshroud ruins puzzle? yea..... that sucked away an hour and fourty five minutes of my life... and I still needed a mapped out path even after I figured it out due to the mechanics of that final color puzzle so I could arrange the switches ahead of time and not screw myself...... Kudus to ToGF, as that proved to be the most challenging puzzle I've encountered in a long time.... and man I did not see that coming at all given how easy the earlier puzzles were....

I feel as though I've done enough to move on now but I like this game so much I'm tempted to FAQ-it to catch what I've missed.... I haven't felt like that about a game in awhile..... Even Xenoblade, by the end of it, I was so fetch-quested-out I could care less about what I was missing and just wanted to finish it....

EDIT: So I finally concluded I was through with all I could find on my own after hours of trying to figure out what to do with certain things in my inventory that didn't make sense to me.. decided to FAQ-it to see what I was missing..... much to my surprise, save a few town-item-requests, some titles I could care less about, a title for malik (I do care about missing although he was my least favorite character) and a swimsuit I didn't miss anything! That means it is time to off the main arc of this baby today!!!! Maybe this should be in the game journal.... oh well, I'll be heading over there once I am through.....

A FINAL WORD: I find it safe to say at this point that this is, by far, my absolute favorite PS3 exclusive title yet.... I can honestly say, in a world where the JRPG is becoming something....well.... something that is not quite as sacred as it once proved to be here in the west.... The Tales series has not disapointed me in the least... In fact, this month I'm gonna go buy an x-box just to play vesperia as its the only member of the franchise I've yet to indulge. Good stuff here, good stuff indeed.

In this world is the destiny of mankind controlled by some transcedental entity or law? is it like the hand of god hovering above? Perhaps Man has no control even over his own will

I'm sorry to double post... but seeing as how this post was more or less completely unrelated to my last and in the form of a question I need answerred I thought it more appropriate than doing a re-edit.... if this is improper forum conduct please forgive me :)

So I just beat the main arc and need some help....
Code: [Select]
After I beat the game I reloaded my last save and started the whole "zhonecage" thing before realizing that it was NOT future arc... So I went back to the title screen and picked lineage and legacies to start the future arc but am confused... which should I do first?? Chronologically speaking I suppose zhonecage right? But it was my understanding this is typically the last thing people do.... please... advice desperately needed before I get out of work at 2-4am later tonite or tonites gaming session could be totally compromised!-LoL... I'm really excited to do future arc as that is more story whereas zhonecage is just optional dungeon stuff, right??.... but then do I lose my shot at zhonecage..... so confused klyde is... so confused

Future Arc first.  The enemies are much easier.  You use your Clear Save after you've beaten Future Arc for Zhonecage, so you keep your progress.

What Cyril said. Keep in mind it is still quite difficult though.

John will be reviewing the domestic version of the game, but we have so much content that hasn't been posted yet (and more to come) that there hasn't been much time to fit it into our update schedule.

Rest assured, however, that it will be coming.

I am working on it.  Actually beat the game, but I've been bogged down with scheduling E3 for the website.  Give me a week or so.

Thank you for clearing that one up for me :)

Did you get a review copy of the game pre-release?  I remember you guys used to pretty often, but it doesn't seem like the case much anymore barring a few titles here and there.

Interesting that you say that, as we've had release date reviews of FFXIII-2, Kingdoms of Amalur, Mass Effect 3, Risen 2, Disgaea 3 Vita, The Witcher 2 360, Xenoblade Chronicles, Devil Survivor 2, Hyperdimension Neptunia mk2, and Hakuoki, and that's just the first four months of this year.

What it comes down to is the publisher.  Namco Bandai did not respond to repeated inquiries about coverage for this title.  Which is unfortunate, seeing as they used an outsourced PR firm for Dark Souls and we had a great relationship there.   But for whatever reason, I couldn't even get the time of day for either Tales title, which is bizarre, considering our audience is pretty much directly the audience they're trying to get to buy their game.

Selective memory then, I guess.

Yeah, that's strange about Namdai considering RPGFan's audience - especially considering they've received positive reviews here in the past.

Sometimes I'm convinced that they don't want anyone to buy their games...
