So I've been playing Graces f on and off for about a week and a half now. To whoever tried to warn me about the battle system, you were right. I hate this.

I do like what they did with the titles and how easy it is to spot a sidequest now though. Those were welcome improvements.

It seems like a crossroad sort of deal.  You either love it and think it's the best battle system in the series, or despise it and hope to never see it again.

I personally find it refreshing to not be attached to TP and let an action number (ie; CC) do all the work.  The start of Graces is pretty slow, and it's best to learn titles that give you more skills -- it'll open up the playing field (but of course, if you tell me you're at the end of the game, then disregard everything and I'm sorry, but at least you tried it out!)

I'd be a bit more forgiving of the CC if it didn't apply to the 3D-plain running (holding down R2 or whatever) as well. Most battles are just me trying to dodge and quickstep, which is a finnicky function at best. Vastly prefer TP.

But as I said, what they did with the titles and how the skills from them work is awesome, and I love the "sidequest RIGHT HERE come and get it!" icons. The game's still overall fun, I just don't really find the battle system anywhere near as enjoyable. Oh, and I really love how there's no world map and everything's pretty much set apart by roads and paths.

Stopped playing at the Rockgagong in the desert last week. Thanksgiving week at work has left me very little gaming time. lol But I take a lot more time to get through RPGs nowadays anyway. Hell, I love Xenoblade Chronicles, but I started that in freaking May and still only play it like, once every two weeks.

You should never use that running function unless your cornered and your only way out is a diagonal.  And yeah it can be hard to master sidestep, but once you get better at it you can literally just attack forever (unlike TP where once you're out, you're out).

This is also a rare instance in video gaming history where your EVA and ACC stat are probably more valuable than the ATK stat is.  And like I said, focus on expanding your skills so you have a bunch more options (if you're willing to pursue it).

A successful sidestep/backstep gives you back more than it costs.
Even better, a successful sidestep/backstep comes with invincibility frames.

Here's the perfect example of what you want to do:

TECHNICAL SPOILER!!!
It's a short snip against the last boss, but you won't know who it is by just watching and it shouldn't ruin anything.

Man, you came in with a better written post than me.  I gotta learn how to be a more eloquent writer, or take my time.  8,000 posts, and they all read like GARBAGE!

Anyways!  Tales teaser page was updated with (wait for it!) Tales of Eternia and Tales of Destiny 2.  Sooo this means it should open in one week (Dec 4th I think).

That was eloquent? I fail to see how.

Did Hideo Baba renew the YEAR OF TALES for 2014 or something?
That's a lot of potential 'tales of' incoming.

B-but, they've already ported it to the 3DS. What more can they do?

In my vision, I see that one of us is going to KO the other.
