No, next game will be Tales of Gacha!

...actually that sounds frighteningly plausible.

I wasn't, but I can't say that I'm terribly surprised.

We're so close to its 10th anniversary, and I've said for years something's gonna happen with Vespy to celebrate it... so I'm looking forward to cashing in...or eating crow.

God damn. That nose is just outlandishly small. Also, something something, phrasing, something, giggity, something, me totally not trying to empty quote the above, something....
In my vision, I see that one of us is going to KO the other.

...Why? Couldn't you just...ignore it, if that happened? Is Bamco gonna hack your Amazon account and order you a copy of the Anniversary Edition ToV, along with a dozen T-Shirts featuring the game's cast?

Man she was kinda boring. Pass eating Velvet Crowe.  Even real crow, they're smart birds, wouldn't wanna eat them.

I've liked all the characters in Berseria so far basically, um, the players side, not, like, Artorious etc.

Depending on how the rest of Berseria goes, I may put this series past Star Ocean which would of been unthinkable back in the day..

That said I was only barely a fan of Symphonia.. .

Well, there's the cellphone game.
Fuck the cellphone game.  It's freemium and therefore garbage.

I never got to play Tales of Destiny II (nee Tales of Eternia) but I always heard that the English VA was "OMG worst voice acting ever!"  I watched 20 minutes of this LP and so far... I don't think the VA is all that bad.  I rather like Farah's VA. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=vcfxtKStFjI

A part of me is wondering if we're watching the same video.  The acting seems very wooden to me.  While it isn't completely cringe inducing, it isn't exactly award winning.  What I will say is that Bandai Namco's translation and localization efforts have come a long way as the quality of Tales of Berseria's is far superior.

I think TDII's voice acting (at least what I heard) was pretty much the norm for a game of this type.  Even nowadays, I've heard voice acting in garden variety anime type games that fared about the same.  But given how everyone hyped up the voice acting in TDII as the worst thing ever, I was expecting Audio Atrocities levels of awful and got something that was... really not that bad.  The speech patterns sounded more natural than I expected, since the actors played it straight rather than go cartoony/exaggerated.  The point about natural sounding speech cadences is notable because things like awkward pauses were not uncommon in dubs of that era.  It's not Citizen Kane and some characters seem a little out-to-lunch, but it's what I'd expect from a tropey anime game.  Heck, I've played games where the Japanese voice acting was terrible: http://www.rpgfan.com/reviews/aiyoriaoshi/index.html
