I'd be down for puzzles in dungeons as long as it's not like in Innocence R where you can get random encounters in the middle of a puzzle. That's just annoying.

With all this talk of past Tales games I just want to express my sadness that, thanks to the Era of DLC, a Tales game will probably never again be as chock full of awesome costumes as Vesperia was. I should play through that game again so I can kick more ass with Magical Girl Estelle.

You just hit the nail on the head sir.

I can think of very few gameplay mechanics that agitate me more than random encounters while solving puzzles.

Can you imagine if you had random encounters during the final light puzzle in Graces F (sand country underground ruin dungeon place). The exact location name escapes me but I KNOW you guys remember what I'm talking about.... if there were random encounters during that, I would have been stuck for days....
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…

ditto.

The first ones aren't too bad, but imagine the last one with encounters...

Some character details. Pretty much confirms that the male is the game's main character. Also, how does a Princess Knight even work? Is she her own knight in shining armor, or is she the princess of one country and the knight of a princess of a second country?

Princess knight? Maybe that's her masculine look and she's failing miserably?

The sane thing would be her having half a dozen older siblings, making her more expendable than the avarage prince(ss), giving her the freedom to do heroic shit. ... But I guess she's once again an only child with no interest in the throne, or something.

Now while the former would make the most sense, its far more likely to either be the latter or the case where she did have an older brother who disappeared on an expedition and to solve the mystery of his disappearance she must confront the evil empire's masked Black Knight who's fighting style is suspiciously identical to that of her missing brother's but she won't notice this until the end (or at least won't reveal that she noticed it until the end).

Basically, what I'm trying to say is that it isn't a Tales Of plot point unless its a done to death cliché.

Sorry, anime art rant:

I fucking hate the main female for her stupid hair loopy going getting through the middle of her face.  They couldn't settle on bangs or long side swept hair or even put off the loopy to the edge of her hairline...NOooOooOoo they put it in the middle with the rest of her short bangs! I still and will acknowledge that Japanese designers quite often out-do their Western counter-parts with wildly different and creative designs.... for better or worse.

She looks like a cute little fucken flower otherwise.  A more rockin' Estelle, I guess.

Slay, clearly named because his parents are metal-heads, looks derivative or Ludger, Ky Kiske and a "Manise" (a male Anise from Tales of the Abyss).

I hope we get an old guy, or really shake things up with a woman older than 30 joining the party (which otherwise seems like taboo to involve).

I'm more concerned with the fact that a knight is walking around in armor with 0 head protection. Course, that could explain the hair being that way?

TASTY!

It's hard enough to get males over 30 in these games (and those that do are always considered to be old geezers; middle-age in a JRPG runs from 20 to 26) let alone females. And again, Tales of Game. It took them nearly a decade just to have a game not star a plucky if somewhat daft sword fighting kid from down town The Sticks (I refer to Legendia where the kid in question fights with his feests! instead). After that, the only exceptions were Vesperia (due to the main character not being a kid) and Xillia (where there were two main characters! And the male one fights with his feests!! HOLY SHEET!!!).

Then again, they could easily have a female over 30 joining the party. Just look at Fire Emblem: Awakening's Nowi. She's not only over 30, she's over a thousand (and looks and acts like she's 12, and you can have somebody both marry and have a child with her, including your own in-game expy no less). :v

If we do get a woman over 30, we already know she's just going to be an under-dressed walking bust-line with generalized contempt for anything and everyone, particularly when her age or aforementioned embellished endowments enter the conversation.

Which it always does.

Shame, maybe one day we'll get the skit to counter the girls talking about their boobs where the guys compare their dicks. :P

Or maybe we could grow up and stop comparing sexual or maternal apparatus in order to put down others for the sake of cheap and uninspired humor.
