Nope. I eventually figured it out. It's a rectangle, and actually a very straight-forward map once you know the layout. I had trouble at first because there were like 2 northwests, etc, cause of the name. Then I started ignoring the names.

Right before the final dungeon (regular arc, not the future arc), doing sidequests. This has actually been more enjoyable than the main part of the game.

This is the greatest thing ever. Certainly in the OTT at least.

Same, I like the free roam. It was annoying how before you were blocked off from areas unrelated to the story, but I guess it prevented people from getting lost.

I haven't checked EBay yet, but are the GS pre-order codes for this selling for big bucks?

I hate this about some JRPGs, written for puppy dog eyed 12 year olds. But I'm able to deal as long as the story is bearable and I don't have the urge to murder more than half the cast.

Reminds me of Abyss, hated the first several hours, but it later turned into one of my favorite in the series.


It isn't always a bad thing. I mean Suikoden II was a friendship thing, but not so overly friendly as it is in ToG-F.

Comparing this game's "friendship" theme to Suikoden II's is just plain insulting to Suikoden II.

On the last dungeon of future arc on my NG+. Did everything on Chaos mode, and skipped every CG. Not looking forward to the last fight, since that gave me trouble on normal.

It's funny when a level 90 normal monster has 4k P.Atk and can one-shot you, when you're 120 using +20 armor, Grade O shards, and half damage titles...

Didn't play yesterday, but beat future arc again today. Boss turned out to be a joke on Chaos mode; I actually had way more problems on normal mobs before the boss.

Weird thing is, I killed it 5 times (twice on normal, once on easy for the trophy, and twice on chaos), and

What did you grab in the grade shop? I think I should grab everything except more dmg & crits.

2x damage
2x sp
3x sp
2x sp on previously mastered titles
keep titles
2x xp
5x xp
keep eleth mixer upgrade
keep stamp upgrades
+1 min CC
keep books
inherit art usage
I think I got double gald, double drop, and double chance if generating an item in eleth mixer, though I can't recall for sure.

I think that was it, but I don't have a list in front of me.

With 2x damage, I had to use all-divides on earlier bosses, but I didn't use it on the boss of the main arc or future arc. Normal mobs will hit hard though.

I wanted inherit cartas, but you probably only have the easier to get ones anyways, so I don't regret not getting it.

I had no gald by then, so I didn't bother with that one.

5x/10x damage is scary. Might try it if I ever try again.

Didn't inherit crystals. I did have double crystal drop rate book though. I got more crystals than I can temper anyways.

Hope you have the book and titles for half damage. You'll need them for most bosses/some mobs.

Wow I feel disgusted. Europe is getting an awesome CE for this game. Honestly I don't know why Namco decided to screw the US like that.

Well, they did have to wait 6 months. And they had to wait almost a year to get Vesperia (and no Special Edition at that).

It works out for me as I was waiting for this game to drop to $30, but for a SE, I'll throw down $60.

I don't think that's the case. It says:

DLC Card with
Costume Set Tales of Destiny 2
& Exclusive PS3 Themes

I believe it's missing a colon, not a comma. It's saying that it comes with a Tales of Destiny 2 Costume Set and Exclusive PS3 themes; It's the Gamestop exclusive DLC.

Well, this is a pre-order upgrade... and seeing how Namco handled the Dark Souls upgrade, they'll probably end up making everything DLC and no physical contents, outside of a sleeve of something.
