Every future Playstation RPG should be required to be Cross-platform with the Vita and have save transfer. I would have beaten Ni no Kuni ages ago is it was on the Vita.

Thanks to everybody who suggested stuff. I figure it would be best if I just try out the new game and engage in a new conversation instead of getting tangled up in an old one. Unless, I like Xillia and go back and play the others. Now, all I have to do is wait.

Xillia is pretty good, but if you can and you haven't, check out Graces for a beautiful JRPG battle system (and if you read the Game Journal, it really is a game that keeps on giving -- it should be pretty cheap these days too).

 I found it for $15 and I might be able to borrow it off a friend, I just don't want to get burned out on the series especially if Graces is so long. Then again, I''m not playing any RPGs (at all, it's very upsetting) right now, so maybe I will.

My biggest problem with Graces was annoying dungeon design at times and lack of in-game maps for dungeons. Even The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past had those, so for modern titles to lack that feature in my mind is inexcusable.

Vesperia doesn't have dungeon maps either. Either that or I'm just not finding them. Only one has had a map so far. Speaking of that dungeon. The twist was awesome.

For the most part everything is fairly straight forward in Graces, and in my opinion in this case a dungeon map would just be hand holding. Unless it really becomes necessary in the Future arc....As I played it, the main storyline clocked in at about 62 hours for me, and supposedly the epilogue is another 10-15. I don't consider myself a completionist, and there are more than a few side quests that I just didn't do, but at no point in the game did I want it to be over. To me, it felt appropriate in length.

Is Graces f the only Tales game where everything is learned via titles? I know none of the older Tales games doesn't have this.
OBJECTION!

Titles before had "perks" (most too minor for big game-changers), but little else.

Oh my!

But, er, what timezone's 4th/6th?

That is, will those of us in North America be getting information tomorrow?

Probably.

Now whether the news is about the latest overpriced DLC sold piecemeal or not is the question.
In my vision, I see that one of us is going to KO the other.

True, it could just be an announcement of $5 DLC costumes coming to the western release of ToX.

I'm trying not to be so pessimistic, though.

Likely information on:

- ToX2
- ToS 1 and 2 "HD" dual-audio
- ToV PS3 (haaha)
- PSN classics

And probably one or either of the first two, especially if this is a NA/EU event as opposed to a Japanese one.

It's Anime Expo in Los Angeles, so it's a North American event.
