Yeah, it looks fucking bad like ass... but should I still go for it?
I mean, it's the only one I'm missing...

Then again, it's 40$
That's actually a descent price.

Do you like RPGs?  Do you like nostalgia?  Do you like good/amusing characters?  Do you remember the days games had puzzles in their dungeons?

LOOK NO FURTHER, FOR FORTY DOLLARS YOU GET ONE GOOD GAME IN THE HD COLLECTION
(ie; not ToS2....)

I recommend it, it's a lot of fun, and a lot of people's first RPG and old-time favorite.  It has a lot of "classic" elements too; those humble beginnings to grander adventures.  It's a perfect blend of old school and modern RPG.  Maybe check out Lets Plays though too!

I'd pay $40 to not have ToS2 forced upon me. (I'm not getting the HD collection :P)

I haven't played ToS 2 but I do wonder what's worse: that or Phantasia iOS.

Hey, ToS2 is a kinda fun game in the way Final Fantasy XIII-2 is a kinda fun game. Sure, the story is stupid, you're stuck with monsters and the game doesn't really need to excist in the first place, but I won't deny it entertained me. Just don't expect too much. Better yet, don't expect anything. Lose all hope. That should work.

I enjoyed it.  It was one of those Sundays where I was bored as hell...so yeah.

Also, the game has one of the strangest requirements for the perfect ending...
Code:
I think you just dodge lightning....and you can't leave the fire dungeon once you started it... A perfect future rests on these tasks!!!!!

Posted my thoughts in here about ToS, but it seems to have disappeared. Basically I just said that after starting with the 3D battlefields, I couldn't get into the 2D ones because everything seemed so cluttered, I couldn't tell what was going on. After my first battle in Symphonia with a full party, I just gave up.

Creeping this thread and playing Vesperia made me re-think my Tales plans... I was going for the obligatory HD collection (collectors edition) at the end of the month although Symphonia was/is admittingly the least desirable for me to play. Not because it is a bad game. Quite the contrary, I loved what I remember of it. I did however play through it whilst knee deep in addiction many years ago, and did so co-op with an ex girlfriend. The whole experience is not one I care to remember....

.... And then the other day you fine folk started talking about Tales of Destiny, and Eternia.

Well last night I got the courage to cancel my HD collection pre-order (really didn't have the disposable funds anyhow) and am going to go for Tales of Destiny or Eternia instead (a little ways down the road).... Going from Vesperia (currently playing what I presume to be close to the end) right into Symphonia in two weeks seemed like A LOT of Tales to digest anyhow.

I have been meaning to get to Destiny and Eternia for years actually, but kept putting em off in the interest of new releases (a habbit I REALLY want to break). And thanks to things like Dice talking about the "magic" of the ps1 era RPG's I finally got pushed over the edge on the whole matter.

Thank you Dice (and community) for saving me 100 dollars whilst reminding me of something I REALLY want and don't just feel obligated to experience.

All that aside, upon thinking about it more and realizing Xillia 2 and eventually the new Tales game are also in the foreseeable future I think i need to include time in my gaming life for other games.... I swear, if I wanted and let myself I could strictly play just "Tales of" something until 2015.

Thanks Klyde.  I kinda wanna make a classic RPG revival/nostalgia thread right now... they had that ...jeux ne sais quoi

Eternia is my "unsuspected favorite".  The world is especially beautiful, the 2D background art makes every place look cozy and wonderful.  The battle system can be fun (magic is particularly well done, I'm sad they never did a Craymel Cage again) and there is a ton of sidequests!

The biggest problem with Destiny is that we never got the Director Cut version...
That version looks soooooooooooooooooooooo good.
I should just import it because it looks that freaking good.

Here


jeux ne sais quoi

Either spelling error or really clever pun.
I'm sure it's the later.

I deeply deeply wish we had gotten one of those ToD remakes.  The original Destiny is the worst Tales Of game by a long shot, and the remakes probably fix 90% of my issues with the clunky combat and lame character customization.

Alright, so I have both Rebirth and Innocence R backlogged... What are your thoughts on each? Which should I play first? Which has more difficult Japanese?

Rebirth is....like the blacksheep of the series, but a good blacksheep!   I've only seen portions from LP's, but I do like the combat and the characters.

Innocence R is kinda "iffy" with me.  I kinda prefer what the DS did for the time than what the Vita has for ITS time (the "new battle system" in InnoR is kinda derivative too).  Still worth a go, the only objectively BAD Tales game is Tempest

You know, it's weird, but I got ToS2's perfect ending by complete accident. I thought the game ended on a really nice note, and then I went online and read that there were bad endings, I was genuinely shocked. And then I read what the requirements were, and thought it was stupid. Even if I got the best result, I could have easily messed those parts of the game up without even thinking about it.

Man, after reading the past few pages on peoples opinions on the various games in the series they have played...I have realized I must just have really low standards..or don't really analyze the games I am playing when I do play them.  Its usually either I like it, or I don't I never really put thought into it beyond that :P.  And so far every Tales game i've played (starting with Destiny which im sure wouldnt hold up if I played it again, but which I loved back when I first played it, which was a little after FF8 came out.) I have really enjoyed.  I will say Vesperia for me was the best, I enjoyed the characters and world the most.  The other games I maybe had a few nitpicks over, but yeah lol.  I will probably be getting the HD collection simply because Ive never played either game, and ToS is considered a favorite among a few good friends of mine.  Plus I kinda wanna see what is so terrible about 2.
