Sorry, there's already too much on list and Graces doesn't look like my cup of tea. Xillia looks like the better game, but this is not Xillia so... yeah, sorry Dice.

Haha I'm not upset - I'm hoping the game will be good.  Not really my cup of tea thus far either.  I'm just going on my general "like" of the series. 

I hate this "loli" thing thats in now - I think Sophie looks uggers.

From what I know, Tales of Graces has one of the best battle systems in the Tales series. I've also read that ToG's story isn't retarded and childish, it has a decent story with good characterization but it's neither epic nor disastrous.

Here's Bebpo's review on ToG: http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showpost.php?p=19539146&postcount=104

So far all Tales games have average plot (Iīd swear, they repeat the same twist over and over!), meh characters, repetitive dungeons (with each being larger and larger near the end game). Many praise Symphonia as one of the best of the best Tales....

I know we take Famitsu's reviews with a grain of salt [in a wound, at that]; but it's the best rated amongst all other Tales titles as well.

And yeah, I've heard similar sentiments about the battle system; I like the speed of it all myself.

Like Parn said, half the in-game work was already done for a PS3 version... what stopped them???

Don't forget Microsoft paid for the localization. I'm pretty sure they can't re-use anything.

My biggest problem with Xenoblade is with the name of the main character; Shulk. Is like Hulk with an S. Yeah, that's retarded.

There's some other wierd names too, but I can't remember them.

Gotta admire the Japanese naming convention, where even people's named are based on some time of the year + a flower or whatever.  Sadly it doesn't work when the try Anglo names.  Yeah, Shulk.  Blood, Squall, Bagel, Denam, Edge, Kite, Ash, Jack Russel, Walnut and I'm sure Kneecap exists somewhere out there.
I'm very hurt.

Haha relax, I'm just pointing out the noun-based naming convention.  I like the name Paige myself.

I can't understand why so many people are ragging on Graces.  It was very well received critically and the combat in the demo was quite fun.  The story might not be groundbreaking, but what Tales game is?  Xillia looks better?  Based on what?  We know jack shit about Xillia.

Please tell me that people aren't dismissing Graces just because they don't like the character designs...

To be fair there are screenshots. But beyond literally "looking better", no, there isn't much.

And hell, I don't care if a story isn't mindblowing (certain genres aside), just as long as it's at least either inconsequential or modestly entertaining, and Tales HAS reliably been the latter for me, even Legendia. Doesn't sound like Graces is any different there, and if the gameplay's as great as Bebpo's review makes it sound I'll be getting it ASAP.

In everyone's opinion, what's the Tales game to play for someone who hasn't really been impressed with Tales games?

Depends which ones you've played.

Yeah, screenshots and trailers also looked awesome for Final Fantasy XIII. That game turned out super awesome, too.

Wait.

Xillia looks kinda weird graphically honestly. They were talking about this on GAF too, but is that suppose to be a river? This team doesn't seem to use shaders with this graphical style very well. And the characters in that city screen don't look better than Graces F either.
