@  Fire Blazer : (16 October 2018 - 03:51 AM) real sad this forum is dead, but hope y'all are all doing okay
@  Fire Blazer : (16 October 2018 - 03:50 AM) yoooo sup
@  acceptance : (04 October 2018 - 02:34 AM) TOV Definitive Edition has me pretty hyped up for the franchise right now.
@  acceptance : (04 October 2018 - 02:30 AM) Its been a while since I've been this excited to play a tales game lolol
@  acceptance : (04 October 2018 - 02:28 AM) I'm finally playing Tales of the Abyss on the PS2 and it reminds me of the first time I played symphonia. I'm loving this game!
@  xcrash1998 : (21 September 2018 - 05:46 PM) I like games that actually reward you for reaching more difficult objectives.
A good example would be the golden ballon in Super Mario Oddisey it more like a trophy and less like an in game side note of what you did.
@  Fire Blazer : (17 September 2018 - 07:13 AM) but like yeah I get more trophies/achievements in games that I just happened to play more bcuz the game itself was fun or w/e and it's like oh ok i also will get these things just through doing the stuff i wanted to do anyway, that's cool i guess lol
@  Fire Blazer : (17 September 2018 - 07:08 AM) like they don't rly hurt but they aren't something of particular value, it's kinda like a fancy alert with a title that tells u u did a thing, it's not bad but im not rly one to go out of my way to obtain the validation of a video game through something that can usually just be done via spending enough time/effort on it

(getting to like the top X% of a competitive multiplayer game or smth would be a diff story, but in that case i wouldn't even want an achievement, i feel like just getting there should feel rewarding in itself, so... yeah, lol)
@  Fire Blazer : (17 September 2018 - 07:07 AM) yeah I'm not a trophy/achievement guy lol
@  acceptance : (13 September 2018 - 10:35 PM) That's just not incentive enough for me, man.
@  acceptance : (13 September 2018 - 10:34 PM) Plus with modern gaming a lot of the time the most you can hope for if you get all the collectibles is a trophy/achievement. Which I suppose is valuable to some people, but it's not gonna add anything to the game whatsoever.
@  Fire Blazer : (12 September 2018 - 05:58 PM) like yeah sidequests with an actual crafted scenario to them, post-game dungeons that aren't TOO much grinding/rehashed content, etc. are cool
@  Fire Blazer : (12 September 2018 - 05:57 PM) yeah I only like completionist stuff if it's like meaningful content/not super grindy but usually at some point it becomes kind of annoying so meh
@  acceptance : (11 September 2018 - 01:01 AM) Gotta love unforgivingly difficult super bosses. (Looking at you, Lingering Will.)
@  acceptance : (11 September 2018 - 01:00 AM) I cannot do the whole collectible thing. It always feel so tedious. Sidequests and EX dungeons are always fun though.
@  xcrash1998 : (09 September 2018 - 06:56 AM) So thats perfect for me
@  xcrash1998 : (09 September 2018 - 06:55 AM) I am rather obsessed with completing on 100% unless it is completely unreasonable to do so
@  Fire Blazer : (03 September 2018 - 04:51 AM) if they ever make a sequel/spiritual successor or the like at the very least it should have my attention, haha

So I just noticed it was available on the eshop, and my first words were "yup". Didn't even think about it, just hit purchase. I've only played through the prologue so far, but it's super fun imo. I'm not totally certain I like the weakness system as much as regular smt/persona's version, but the battles are still really good. They kept the Japanese voice acting for the Western release, so that's a thing. Not sure whether to say it's positive or not, but it's definitely a thing. Solid soundtrack, graphically speaking the game is good. Characters are really nice looking. Chrom especially looks really cool.

Also they translated sheeda as caeda, but the actor still said sheeda...

At least for me, the weakness system becomes even more awesome later. It works notably different from the other ones and I just find it super rewarding and exciting and that it connects with other parts of the game better than say, the press turn system. (just my opinion though, we'll see what you think of it~)

surprised you didn't hear about it being dub only, but yeah. they did it for various reasons. save money, game is niche, singing stuff means it's super hard to find people to sing all the songs/be fitting, don't want inconsistent VAs, etc.

 

I really REALLY like the art, and how colorful the game is. It's no AAA with the graphics or models, but the animations are fairly fluid IMO and overall I enjoyed it plenty. There are a lot of awesome songs in the soundtrack IMO, some of which you don't get to hear much, so tell me what you think as it goes on! I liked it though!

 

On Sheeda, tbf I think Caeda is pronounced similarly to Sheeda anyway, but yeah, it's still weird. bet whoever decided on that weird spelling never thought TMS#FE would exist and have Sheeda in it, lol... (still "Sheeda" to my regardless of FE11 and the like XP)

i can see the potential in the weakness system already, but i've gotten so used to the press turn thing in smt/persona games that it'll take a minute to adjust and remember that i don't get extra attacks. i really think i'm going to enjoy it. i'm seeing loads of potential just from the prologue. just hoping it lives up to half of what i'm seeing in my head XD.

So I typed up a pretty lengthy post, but then my browser crashed and I lost it all fuuuuuuck. Quick summary:

 

Battle system is super fun, progression is nice to keep it fresh.

Characters are fun, tropey but not too tropey like some FE chars and JRPGs can be

Dungeons are fun (barring Illusory 106), not randomly generated makes for some fun puzzles. Last two dungeons are probably the best since they don't use the darker colors like the dungeons before it lol. 

The performances look great and the songs are super nice to listen too. This game made me a fan of Minase Inori.

Colors are great, too much grim dark these days. 

Load times can be long, and the framerate can get annoying in encounters with many large enemies (I have disc version). PS fuck chapter 5 for having an encounter where the game shits itself.

rip disc version users, I'll have to suffer through it myself soon enough

 

agree on most of hte other parts though Kiria is my fave though, but Tsubasa is close to your age and Kiria is close to mine so it's only natural *shot*
