Did any of you guys import Tales of Graces (Wii or Æ’ version)? If so how does it compare to the other Tales game.

A number of people placed it as the second best Tales game, higher than Vesperia though.

I've written a review of it that will be posted within the next week.

Awesome.

So did anything else come from that clusterfuck image, or were those additional images there just to pretend like Namdai knew how to make a mysterious announcement that people couldn't instantly figure out?
In my vision, I see that one of us is going to KO the other.

They DID hold a conference with some announcements and recently unveiled Ridge Racer Unbounded, so while the hints were probably more to throw people off it wasn't like they showed nothing else that day or shortly afterwards.

Also, it was meant to fuck with Tales-tards who PMS over the series.

I'm not sure it was mentioned in the 20 pages of discussion, but I for one will enjoy playing this game where the hero is the secret lovechild of Disco Stu and Suzaku Kururugi.

(I wish I still had the image about that)

Haha OMG, I thought I was the only one who called him that!!  Those white blazer, popped collar, and bell bottoms are pure discotheque fashion.

...on a side note, why does the Code Geass cast pull sad faces that reach the edge of their entire face?

Pissy youngsters!!

It's the CLAMP style. Same reason their arms and legs are twice as long while half as thin.

I'm not a fan of the new elongated clamp style - they used to be so wonderfully detailed (CCS was one, MKR took hair shading to a new level, and Chobits had a unique style on its own....credit to the artst for her versatility, just not caring for the latest work... A Tsubasa was fucked up enough with the "Futurama-esque Grandpaw Paradox")

I gave up on Tsubasa Chronicles long ago. It's pretty obvious they'll stay lost forever because that serie is printing money.
If they ever get back home, it will be in 10 years after 5 movies, 2 anime series and 500 more chapters... kinda like how Inuyasha did it

Inuyasha has one of the worst endings ever too

Actually even better - it did end.  The second series was apparently so bad that CLAMP wouldn't allow any more anime adaptions (so I hear).  If you're that uninterested in the ending, like I said, they pull a bit of a Futurama "I am my own grandfather" paradox (it was done in the most pretentious ways possible to boot, in a CLAMP magical-romance way haha) - it's convoluted and for the life of me, I can't re-summarize it for you, the wikipedia summaries were obtuse enough.

Oh man, I just went around to read the ending...

that makes no sense at all.

Considering this serie had millions of fans, I'm surprise the CLAMP building didn't burn down.
This is even worst than the original Evangelion ending and they almost went down in flames for that.

EDIT: I gave up around the clones dying the first time... so they got resurrected and killed and resurrected and killed again? daaaaaaaamn

I haven't even finished reading the review... but I just love the introduction statement

«"...Graces f is an incredible example of how an entertaining and enjoyable experience can trump hackneyed storytelling and lack of production values any day of the week."»

lol

EDIT: Skits quality down? =(

I'm not going to deny that I didn't have similar reaction..we've been waiting for a new Tales game forever...and the fact that it appears to be a solid title - ahhhhhh can't wait!
