Personally, I want to support Bandai-Namco finally giving us the expanded version of ToV after all these years, plus I can play it on a non-Microsoft console. I'm going to play it with Japanese voices (another addition I'm thankful to Bamco for), so the scenes where Troy Baker was replaced won't affect me.

 

I do want to support them as well so we continue getting Tales games in the West. Decided to go ahead and get it now even though I still have my 360 copy. Doubt I get the Plat but I should be able to finish the story and new content before RE2 and KH3. Don't remember much about the game since I haven't played in over 10 years so it will almost be like a new experience. :D

It's a fairly difficult platinum with a lot to do. While some of it is fairly grindy (TIDAL WAVE BLAH BLAH BLAH!) a lot of it is also pretty fun and feels good to complete. This game is much more enjoyable to 100% than any of the games that have followed. Some of those secret missions, though, man...

I noticed last night that Best Buy is down to store pickup only on Senran Kagura Burst Renewal At The Seams edition. It's $79.99 but works with GCU to make it $63.99. The main thing over the $49.99 ($39.99 GCU) Tailor Made edition is a set of keychains and the box. The Digital version of Tailor Made comes with about $10 in extras like a theme and some costumes that are timed exclusives.

 

As soon as I preordered the next available copy was 90 miles away.

Isn't this the game that everyone is avoiding because the cartoons are less naked?

I am torn over getting ToV: Definitive. I loved the game when I played it on 360 but $50 ($40 after GCU) seems a little steep for the new stuff they're offering. The mismatched English voice acting can be jarring as well from what I've read.

buy itttt

The feature known as intimacy mode was removed from the PS4 release. It's a dressing room feature where the player can use virtual hands to grope the characters until a heart meter fills up, at which point grabbing their hands initiate a kiss. Pretty much in line with the other game content Sony has been blocking recently.

Well if I can't forcibly grope women then I don't want to play it either!

I wish I had friends to co-op this. My friends will likely be a beer and some random plush I have there.

Nothing wrong with a good drink! :) It helps that my sibling still lives close by and is a Tales fan. It sounds like Bandai might not  stream / share play block this title, so I wonder if share play on the PS4 would be any decent?

Could just start a party chat and play at the same time with people here. But don't let Nothing and his daki stop ya.

damn yeager and the ma missions.  oh and the second one for zagi.  only way I found to do that one was activate over limit while zagi was overhead at just the right time.  flynns use all moves one was so stupid since you are at the complete mercy of rng.

I completed it on the 360. It wasn't so much difficult as it was grindy, but it was a good enough game that I didn't mind at all. I can't speak for what the DE content will add to the challenge (there are more titles and costumes), but on another forum someone mentioned the secret missions aren't miss-able in the DE. If that's true then it's a lot less stressful.

I have only played the base original ToV on Xbox. I know I got the full 1000, but don’t remember it being hard, just time consuming. I think it needed 2.5 playthroughs.

Graces F was the really hard one, I didn’t even bother to try and platinum that.

Well yeah without a guide the item and monster collector alone will make things take a while.  Plus there's the low level one which requires beating part 1 under level 15 iirc, speed run and max level achievements iirc. So for the low level and speed run ones that would be another 2 separate playthrough files though in the formers case you would only need to beat part 1.

 

Vesperia is the only title I bothered to get item collector in besides berseria.  Vesperia was significantly less grindy to do so but did require following a guide since there are multiple missables.  Rita has a timed piece of equipment in heliord or whatever the waterfall city was and that screwed me as I had judiths spear and every other piece of equipment on my second playthrough but that one.  That shitty little piece of equipment.

Sorry, kinda random but I've had the Caligula Effect Asia CE for a while, and decided to do an unboxing for it. Sorry if I sound like I am doing a school presentation. Anyway, I tried to do one of those no-BS ones, and all I really do is show and talk about the CE here as fast as I could, to keep it under 3 minutes. Thanks for watching!

 

 

I'll probably be streaming the game on my Twitch channel soon too.

Well done, BRW.   That's exactly how you do an unboxing video.

 

steelbook + cd soundtrack +art book, that's the build of a perfect collector's edition imo.

Great unboxing video, BRW. Straight to the point, showed every item off well, and wasn’t 10-15 minutes long like I’ve seen other unboxing videos do.

That is a very nice collector’s edition. I’m not really into steelbooks, but that one is awesome! Probably one of the best steelbooks I’ve ever seen.

Looks amazing! Would love to hear your thoughts of the game when you've played enough to formulate an opinion. I've bee eyeing to get this on my Switch when it releases later this year, but haven't seen many reviews of Overdose (only the original).

Best unboxing ever, 5 stars, would watch again! :p


the fact that there isn't a steelbook in the usa release is really making me want to import.

I wonder if NISA will be using the same translation as this. I like the format both the box and your video. Great job.

Anyone have opinions on the Operation Abyss / Babel games?  Debating the purchases before the psn sale ends in a few days.  I assume they're going to be like Demon Gaze?

 

..trying to divert my bitterness that my amz preorder of Vesperia won't be arriving until tuesday.

Babel is more polished than abyss. I personally think those 2 are lower middle tier Drpg for vita, not horrible like mind zero, but not as good as demon gaze 1 or 2.

It is made by Experience Inc so yes. But expect dubs only since they could only fit one audio track.

In case anyone else was wondering..  there are two free dlc packs for Vesperia which are available on all platforms but do not show on the game's eshop page.  However right now you can manually search for them and add them to your account, even if you're like me and are still waiting on a shipment to arrive.

vesperia 360 has 3 or 4 free dlc sets.  maybe more as I remember trial skill packs for yuri and estelle, item set and I think a synthesis set.  Trial skill sets are nice since you can equip them right away for recover and item thrower access which you would have to learn off equipment otherwise.
