Looks more like Tales of RWBY to me.

11/10 would play every day until death maybe that's an exaggeration

But seriously, could you imagine that game?

Yes. Yes, I can.
Very easily at that.

Yeah............ that's not really like what Tales of RWBY would actually be.  In my head, that is.
I was thinking more RPG and less hack-n-slash.

So, we've got a heroine with an evil hand, which she keeps wrapped up, and this in a series called "Tales of", which roughly translates as "monogatari".   Coincidence?



I wonder if Berseria-monogatari will include a tooth-brushing scene.

I consider the kid's "halo" hair to be a Very Bad Sign.  I mean, I'm not exactly expecting subtlety, but yow.  Maybe you could turn the symbolism down a notch.  I want to be optimistic, but that trailer didn't do me any favors.

It's hard to get excited for a Tales game anymore.  They seem to be pumping them out like crazy and each one seems to have a notable decline in quality. I'll reserve judgment on this one though till we see more.

To be fair, I never really did. Phantasia was the one I was interested in back in 96, but that took years to leave Japan and between my experience with Symphonia, the yearly releases and looking at what trying to go through the series at that point in time (circa 04/05) would've entailed, I got turned off of the series real quick.

Don't jinx this anymore than it already is. I don't want to imagine Miss Desperately Needs a New Wardrobe brushing Shota Angel's teeth like he was her younger brother but not really, and in a forceful and almost violating way.

I'd much rather have this be a case of her Sword Arm twitching than anything on Bakemonogatari's level.
In my vision, I see that one of us is going to KO the other.

I'm inclined to agree, but I was bored at work so I went back and assessed each entry on how I feel about them now. A strike-through indicates games I haven't played.

^ Tales of Symphonia
| Tales of Vesperia
| Tales of Graces
| Tales of Eternia
| Tales of Hearts
| Tales of Zestiria
| Tales of Phantasia
------------------------------------ (Above: Games I really enjoyed. Below: Games I really did not enjoy.)
| Tales of Xillia
| Tales of Xillia 2
v Tales of the Abyss*

Tales of Destiny, Tales of Destiny 2, Tales of Rebirth, Tales of Legendia, Tales of Innocence

*Yes, yes, I hate Abyss, it's the only one I never finished. I know, no one agrees with me.

Overall, I'd say it's a bit of a mix and that I don't actually prefer the older/middling ones over the newer ones. So, I guess that means I should be more interested in Beseria than I am? I'm pretty hesitant though, as much as I love Tales. Though I felt the same way about Zestiria and enjoyed it in the end, possibly just because the characters are infinitely better than Xillia.

Did I write something about this before? I don't recall.
I'll use a simple format.

Tales of Phantasia - Yay
Tales of Destiny - Yay
Tales of Eternia - Yay
Tales of the Abyss - Meh
Tales of Symphonia - Nay
Tales of Vesperia - Yay
Tales of Graces F - Yay and Nay at the same time somehow
Tales of Xillia - Meh
Tales of Xillia 2 - Nay
Tales of Zestiria - Meh

Anything not there is not played.

I like this!

Tales of Phantasia - Nay (too old, too dated; I liked it when it first came out though)
Tales of Destiny - Meh (the "R" version is where it's at, the PSX one is too slow nowadays too)
Tales of Eternia - Yay (love it; great world, fun game, gorgeous art, part of that 'cozy' series of PSX RPGs)
Tales of Symphonia - Yay (very fun, dated but it works)
Tales of the Abyss - Yay (that plot...!!)
Tales of Legendia - Nay (like...the music is good...but that's it)
Tales of Vesperia - Yay (beautiful, good cast, fun to wreck battle system)
Tales of Graces F - Yay (that battle system...!!)
Tales of Xillia - Meh (great plot, shittiest presentation)
Tales of Xillia 2 - Yay (addictive af)
Tales of Zestiria - Nay (it's just...so annoying to play, every part feels so restricted)

im pretty sure the title berseria is a play on the word berserk so im sorta expecting the protag to be like claire in claymore.

Hmm....

Tales of Eternia - Yay!
Tales of Symphonia - Yay!
Tales of Graces f - Yay!
Tales of Xillia - Very Yay!

I'm not a very harsh critic.  Aaaaaand my opinion seems to flow opposite of all the actual Tales fans here. :(

Hmm, no, I think yours make sense. Eternia, Symphonia and Graces are more or less archetype JRPGs. The JRPGs to end all JRPGs. Xillia has a bit more mature feel to it.

Plus, I'm pretty easy to please, too. I mean, sure, I'm going to whine and complain, but that's mostly because I'm so familiar with the series. I love the franchise and enjoy every installment.

... Though that might change if I ever play Tempest.

Yay: Phantasia, Vesperia, Eternia, Abyss
Meh: Destiny, Symphonia (I'm fully aware I may have just been in a bad mood for these)
Never played: The rest.


... I'm a bad Tales fan. But the games I loved, I REALLY loved. I just need to get around to playing more of them.
Like smart, indepth reviews of really old RPGs and adventure games? Well then, have I got the YouTube channel for you.

appearently berseria takes place in the same world as zestiria but in the distant past.
