@  Fire Blazer : (28 May 2018 - 06:36 AM) and yup, Yuri and Rita are super OP, but I at least tried to be more creative with them than the average person, haha. (e.g. not just doing shining fang or violent pain/tidal wave spam all the time)
@  Fire Blazer : (28 May 2018 - 06:35 AM) yeah, can't fault you for the Symphonia bias, I might not have gotten to ever play co-op Tales of (QQ, lowkey one of my goals in life...), but ToS was my first Tales of game and got me into the series, so yeah
@  kirant : (27 May 2018 - 08:58 PM) I certainly found Vesperia's gameplay to be one of the biggest appeals (even if I broke the game halfway through by doing something as innocuous as "played as Rita". I swear the entire game became one long string of machine gun fireballs).

I'm personally still a larger fan of Symphonia, but that's probably an age bias for me. I grew up with Symphonia and spent years with friends playing a 4 player campaign. The only thing it was missing was the ability to move your characters in the 3rd dimension (instead sticking you as a player on the 2 dimensions while allowing allies and enemies to go full 3D).
@  Fire Blazer : (27 May 2018 - 08:17 PM) I also DID enjoy Vesperia's combat system, though I can kind of understand why one wouldn't, but like, the rest of it was definitely key to making it one of my all-time favorite games
@  Fire Blazer : (27 May 2018 - 08:16 PM) I also really like Vesperia's artstyle, I looked at it again recently and I still think it looks pretty solid for a game that's like, 10 or so years old
@  acceptance : (25 May 2018 - 06:05 AM) See I've never even played Vesperia on account of it's 360 exclusivity in America. But from screenshots and such I've seen, it's super pretty.
@  Elwood : (25 May 2018 - 05:56 AM) I really really didn't like Vesperia's combat system but it's still one of my favorite games. That game's visuals, characters and story are phenomenal.
@  acceptance : (25 May 2018 - 05:33 AM) I think something similar to Vesperia's art sytle would be great. That game is just super pleasant to look at.
@  Fire Blazer : (25 May 2018 - 01:41 AM) and yeah, it's about time they do a new engine, I'm assuming that's why it's been more than 1 year since the last Tales of game (and why it feels so long), lol. hopefully it's good. I'd kinda like for them to go back to colorful games and maybe either get a good art style going assuming they can't just make it outright look good (I'm not a fan of going for more realistic graphics only for the textures to be like, low-res...)
@  Fire Blazer : (25 May 2018 - 01:40 AM) been hearing Berseria is a better game, even though what I saw of it didn't really impress me. I do still plan to play it eventually though.

and idr about the opening but Zestiria had a solid song. just kinda catchy lol
@  acceptance : (25 May 2018 - 12:46 AM) Speaking of which, I hear the next one will use a whole new engine. Maybe they'll like; animate the lips, too.
@  acceptance : (24 May 2018 - 10:58 PM) Tales** also. Oopsie poopsies.
@  acceptance : (24 May 2018 - 10:58 PM) Berseria is a better game though, I quite liked it.
@  acceptance : (24 May 2018 - 10:57 PM) I've come to realize that Takes of Zestiria has a super rad opening song, and Berseria's was a steaming pile of doo doo.
@  Fire Blazer : (24 May 2018 - 01:55 AM) lolol

@Rujio yeah, I remember hearing something like that too. It makes enough sense, remaking a game is a bit less work than coming up with an entirely new one, haha.
@  Rujio : (22 May 2018 - 04:15 AM) Apparently FE2 was remade because IS was looking ahead to the Switch, but couldn't start developing for it yet, so they did the simplest/shortest project they could.
@  acceptance : (22 May 2018 - 02:56 AM) Yikes. If that was me acting smart, I think I may be dumber than anyone thought.
@  Fire Blazer : (21 May 2018 - 07:16 PM) @Kirant yeah, in a way it is, but also FE1/3 were kinda already remade already, so in that sense, FE2 makes sense (being the oldest game to not be remade, lol)
@  Fire Blazer : (21 May 2018 - 07:16 PM) tfw Idiot tries to sound smart XP
@  Fire Blazer : (21 May 2018 - 07:16 PM) lol

[11:19:40 PM] ballin1337: I am making a list of 50 things Awakening is missing
[11:19:51 PM] ballin1337: try to be specific, not too broad, because we want to list 50 things. that's a lot more than it seems

[11:20:04 PM] ballin1337: by "missing" I basically mean, anything that could be different and maybe better

[11:28:20 PM] ballin1337: https://docs.google....dit?usp=sharingBOOM
[11:28:21 PM] ballin1337: go
[11:28:26 PM] ballin1337: don't write over other people's stuff please.
[11:28:34 PM] ballin1337: also try to be creative though writing the obvious ones is also helpful.

 

NOTE: DO NOT SHARE THIS GOOGLE DOC WITH PEOPLE OUTSIDE OF THESE FORUMS. I want to minimize the chance of random people messing with things. So, we'll just keep it to us. Hope you contribute. Thanks!

I dun wanna do spreadsheets. :(

 

Sounds like a fun idea, besides that. Editing google docs tends to be really annoying for me, though, so I'll pass.

I edited my responses into the comments section of some

 

In response to affinities:

"While they might be superfluous they don't do any harm either and aren't constantly crashing into your face unnecessarily (e.g. like superfluous dialog). This list isn't to say they have to return, it's just listing things that have value to people that are missing in Awakening."

 

I think you're misunderstanding the point of this list in general. You made a similar point about support conversations in mid-battle but I'm not saying they're better or anything, just that it's something notably different that some people might value. That's why I let "Dismounted" be on the list even though I'm not really a fan of dismounting units myself: because some people might like that and miss its presence.

 

That being said, your points are generally valid for supporting the opinion that it doesn't matter/doesn't need to be in Awakening/whatever, so I appreciate you giving the counter-thoughts regardless

 

------

 

About late-game characters and such:

 

"I figured someone would say that but those characters don't join late enough for them to fill in that role IMO and due to Awakening's lack of linearity, they're missing the same feeling/vibes caused by having characters join late in a story: you can go ahead and do a bunch of skirmishes/DLC maps/paralogues/whatever in the mean time so they basically feel like normal characters just with less supports and a later joining time. - Blazer"

 

Thus I don't agree that Awakening has it. Too many differences for it to count for me, doesn't really feel similar
