Xillia is fun, though I prefer Graces f in terms of PS3 Tales games. 

Xillia is fantastic. It's the game that got me back into the Tales series. I think the storytelling was fantastic. Graces on the other hand was just boring in comparison. Well, outside of combat. Seriously, Graces has the best combat system in the whole series.

I'm having so much fun with it.  No other game captures that sense of exploration for me.  While I'm at work I'm always thinking about where I want to try to go next and which paths I haven't tried yet.  It's so hard to sit in front of a computer all day and avoid spoilers!

So, maybe I can get some help here. I dunno. I got my copy of FFX/X-2 HD and when I went to play the game, it booted up normally, but once I selected FFX it hit me with a prompt that said "Trophy Installation Failed" or something along those lines. Troubleshooting shows that deleting the profile and doing a reformat should fix the problem, but it didn't. So, uh, yeah. I dunno if this is a problem with my PS3 or with the game.

I often hear about how much people really liked Graces. I played for about 12 hours and found it incredibly boring, both story and battles. I liked a few of the characters but not enough to keep me going. I was told the battles get more in depth but I must have quit before it got to that point.

 

Could you guys explain why you liked Graces so much? I'm not fishing for an argument I'm just curious as it might re-spark interest for me.

 

I've played most games in the series, Vesperia & Abyss being tied for my favorite. I really couldn't pick one over the other. Xillia was good but I missed some of the traditional JRPG staples.

For me, it was 99% the battles. Until ƒ. Then it was probably 70% battles, and 30% skits.

 

If you don't  like the battles, there's not much else to say. However, the battle system is relatively deep, bordering on an easy fighting game. You can use up your movement dashing forward, get them back dodging and "parrying" (I forgot what dashing forward to deflect an attack was called), circle around mobs, combo a ton of hits, etc. I enjoyed it a lot even on my second playthrough of Chaos mode because of it. There's a lot of timing involved, so it's like a QTE with various choices, or a rhythm game, or like an easy aforementioned fighting game.

I think it picks up as you get going (I think I spent over 60 hours on it if you count the epilogue stuff so 12 hours is only a small chunk), but the battle system is definitely the highlight. Tales games are basically like gaming comfort food for me, you pretty much know what you are getting but it's still real enjoyable. I'd still rank Vesperia & Xillia better though.

It's all about the battles and Pascal. I played on the hardest difficulty which forced me to be very knowledgeable about party structure, strategy, and the battle mechanics. I recommend raising the difficulty if you are finding the combat to be lackluster, but trust me, once the challenge hits, you'll become an expert at combat because you'll have no other choice. While the combat system seems deep, you can get the hang of it with time, though it depends if you want to master playing as the other characters.

Speaking of which, the characters are pretty good. Unfortunately, they are placed in a pretty boring story, but once the credits rolled, I genuinely felt sad that the journey with the cast was over. In all honesty though, Pascal's behavior was the most exciting part of the story for me.

I think it's an environmental puzzle game? I love MCoG, but have heard mixed things about this game. It's on sale on Steam right now if you want to let us know how it is ;) - http://store.steampo...com/app/261940/

Speaking of RPG-looking things that aren't RPGs, should I get the 360 version of P4 Arena or the PS3 one? Note that I don't have a PS3 right now, but am definitely going to get one sometime.

I would hold off until the suplex update comes out just so you know which one to get if any.


Every day's great at your Junes!

So Suplex is a Street Fighter-style updated version and not a sequel? Didn't know that; thanks.

So I started Etrian Odyssey IV last night. (Mainly because I forgot to charge my Vita and continue Galaxy Rush).

I set it to Normal, made a party, and then started the first quest. Uh.....There's no map on the bottom screen? Or is that just a reward for the first quest?

It's been awhile, but I think a soldier or some other NPC gives you the mapmaking stuff early on?

I hooked up my old V-Saturn a couple weeks ago. Only played a few import fighters and the Street Fighter: The Movie game just for laughs. I remember getting really far in Dragon Force a few years back. I put it on hold for several months then when I went back to it I must've saved in the middle of a difficult battle. I kept getting killed. Lost my drive to play after that. If I start it up again I'll have to do it from scratch.

If you care about the story, it's totally a sequel from what I understand.

 

And you should care about the story.

 

So you should play the first one.

If anyone isn't going to use their code I'd love them forever.

I don't like Godzilla.

There are just so many un-Godzilla like things it should be easy to see why people didn't like it (also the annoying cast). Zilla being killed by missiles was the biggest thing that bothered me Godzilla is supposed to be far stronger than that. The army shouldn't be able to hurt Godzilla unless they are using something like MechaGodzilla or Moguera.

Did a quick search and it seems you're right. Still have to decide on the platform, though...

But what if they pull a Dissidia and put the first game in the second game?!

It's too late, I ended up ordering a 360 copy yesterday. Atlus has made me double-dip before, so if they pull a Dissidia, then whatever, I can deal :razz:

But in that case you have to experience the story out of order even though it is in order so confusing.
