I would guess and say yes. The tales series don't change too much game to game.

Graces for ps3 might be a better fit.

Also if you have access to a gamecube and symphonia that one is also amazing.

If I liked Vesperia (the only Tales game I've played) would I enjoy Abyss?


Personally I enjoyed Abyss the least of all the modern Tales games, but that largely had to do with the terrible load times and not being very fond of much of the cast. The gameplay for all of them is essentially the same though, so if you enjoyed the combat system in Vesperia, Abyss might be worth a shot since the less alluring factors come down to taste as opposed to inferior design.

Gameplay wise I would say yes, you would like Abyss. I don't know whether you would like the cast though (I loved them). Seems to be love/hate for most people. Graces f has an entirely different battle system (which becomes awesome once you get the hang of it) which is nothing like Vesperia, so keep that in mind.

If you think about it, this is probably the best time not to own one with the recent announcement of the XL and the fact that there is some really solid titles available now (and more coming this summer/fall).

Well, I know that, but just the idea of buying titles without owning the system to play them on... with the intention to (eventually) play them. In theory, it makes perfect sense: you know you're at one point going to own a 3DS, and it's easier now to get in on deals and even games that may or may not go out of print faster than most. It's a great deal for a good game.

I dunno. I guess I still think it's awful buying games without owning the system haha (it's also a typical and IMO terrible habit of collectors - especially otaku's that love organizing and starring at 'stuff' and often lose the desire of even playing through said 'stuff' down the road) particularly because I don't plan on getting a 3DS. Then again, I can see the upside of it.

No desire to upgrade to a netbook sized 3DS, but I do enjoy the more 'rounded' edges and slight upgrades touches. dem jaggies from some screen shots of games though, but that's to be expected when blowing games of that resolution up to that size.

From what I've read, the jaggies seen on screenshots aren't actually present on the system itself due to websites simply resizing current 3DS pics to fill the new model's screen size.

Nintendo is telling people receiving units for review not post photos / videos of the system running, so shots of the actual unit are tough to come by. But it's only natural games will not look as sharp. Nintendo has stated they're not filtering, or adding anything to help scale to the large screen.

It won't look terrible; I love my DSiXL, but it certainly does a number of 3D games, that were already a little rough looking, no favors.
