Drellin is a weird place.  Great addition to the game... The only real addition.  HMM.

More!

= Tales series is good with comedic relief in its female cast.  Muzét is a lot of fun, and a great addition to gaming otherwise being....pretty bare with funny-females.  I like that her character chapters (so far) have been pretty goofy. x)
Also, am I crazy or does she cast faster than the usual Tales magicians?  I feel like spell casting has finally been sped up with the Xillia series.

= TOOK FOREVER TO GET A SEPHIRA (1.5x gald from battles).  Hint to all people: When you go back to the "training centre", defeat ALL ENEMIES.

= To those annoyed by it, later on in the game, the debt stays but the reminders will go away.  So yay.

= Pretty bold choice to show Canaan as...
Code:
a fetus.  Did not see that coming.  I feel I'd be more disturbed by it, but Drakengard has already desensitized me to most creepy use of babies in gaming. Cuz wow.

= Argh.  I hate trying to bring a party along that works well for linking all of Ludger's weapons

= Where is the casino???  I keep hearing stuff about chips and poker. D:

You get access to the Casino after doing one of the board quests.  I think it's the Tengu mask guy?  It's in the bar where Ludger wakes up to his debt.  It's a pretty bare-bones casino, though.

And yes, I absolutely love Drellin.  What a great atmosphere.

So looking at this, I've noted that I may have been in error in terms of which JRPG party cliche Zesty is using.

Instead of team 'the MC and his one man Power Rangers power hour', we're looking at the 'classic three man party comprised of the usual JRPG suspects' + the 'four elemental spirits' cliche instead. So our male heroic JRPG protagonist/one-man Sentai force is not the only human but is also joined by the female love interest and the Little Jon-esque male good-natured burly sidekick. And judging by the battle UI, he might not even be the only Transformer in town, though it also looks like you can only have two humans and two elemental spirits out in battle at a time (though switching between elemental spirits looks like a free action at least). That said, I've got to give credit where credit's due. At the very least, Zesty reversed the cliched elemental gender roles so that the females aren't the usual 'speedy but otherwise useless' wind and 'token healer' water types (granted, that doesn't guarantee their usefulness, but at least its not a totally forgone conclusion like it would've been if they hadn't bothered).

And with that said, the battle system looks like a clusterfuck. I hope the UI is better at informing you of your allies status beyond healed/needs healing because keeping track of any of them looks like a royal pain in the ass.

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

What bugs me the most about combat is how close the camera is.
I really hope there's a way to pull it way back.

I have a thing with too-close cameras...

I'm hoping that because that is a complaint among like...70% of all reactions to the gameplay video, they listen and pull the damn camera back.

...but, watching the video, I don't know, I wonder if it's sort of "part of the design", like you're meant to focus more 1-on-1.  It still looks off, and the camera jerking is really something.... *groan*, I dunno.  Most Tales games offer camera options, so fingers crossed.

Cutscenes look pretty and the characters are nice to look at.  The battles DO look great, just the camera needs some serious work.  And would it kill them to add some more trees to that field (or the faster sprinting like Xillia 2 added?  Shit, that first video has MC practically running straight across an empty field for a full minute).

I never thought I'd be saying this, but I'd prefer some procedurally generated vegetation.
