Nah. I'm not missing out on anything but being able to play Abyss again. But the 3DS isn't multiplayer so my sister would have to just sit and watch rather than just play and I prefer it when we both play Tales of Games. I heard they fixed some glitches and other such things but in general the PS2 version is better. But hey, as long as more people get into the game this way.

Symphonia is my favorite game ever and basically my bible. ♥ I've done numerous playthroughs and I've actually been meaning to do another and hope it doesn't corrupt on me sob.

I find the 3DS version of Abyss better, faster loading times fixed up glitches, the only downside is the sound is a bit low even on max, well for me that is, than again i am 80% deaf, but i can hear the voices fine. But this is all my opinion, I still love the Ps2 version as well :)

Also, Graces F Im enjoying the voices, a bit off with the name changes for some items, but hey not every game gonna translate a perfect english from Japanese so they need to change somethings. Thought I didnt get the preorder from Gamestop cause they didnt take my money, so I had to order from amazon, but I got the preorder from a friend he let me use his PSN account so YAY :)

I like the 3DS version of Abyss better, as well. I never got too far on the PS2 version, because I'm not one of those people that can easily sit there in one spot for hours and comfortably get too far in a game. It's easier for me to just be able to pick up my 3DS, wherever I happen to be, and kill things on Abyss. xD Also, the 3D for it is fine in my opinion, not as good as games that were overall made for that system, but good enough.

Also, yes, it does load faster. I was glad. xD

As for Graces, I don't have the right system. If I wanted to play it, I'd probably have to risk using an emulator, and ew. Just ew. Don't even think a PS3 emulator exists, or that'd be my guess, that's how much I know about them. xD The graphics look so pretty, though. I might eventually watch LPs, or clips on Youtube.

Just got my copy of Graces F. I'll play a bit of it later tonight. Hopefully I enjoy it more than Vesperia at the very least.

How can you not love Pascal and her awesome victory quotes?



Anyways, I've been playing quite a bit lately. Was getting owned by the boss at the bottom of the Glacier Ruins so I decided to explore and doing some sidequests. Luckily I came upon Asbel's Yuri outfit, lol.

Right I love her especially in Skits :).

I just got the Yuri outfit, im a late bloomer on the carta cards, Im more focus on the story haha. Cheria's Rita outfit is gonna be a pain, I tried to get it multiple times in the JPN version, made me want to throw the controller at the COMP you play against haha. Its good to practice the Carta game like vs :). I need to collect i think 20 to get Sophie's Patty Outfit, 30 is the mark where you can try to get Cheria's Rita's out fit.

But im falling in love with sophie again <3

Royal crablettes... Royal crablettes... Royal Crablettes...

Yeah, the boss in the ice ruins is a pain in the ass. I had to drop the difficulty down just because I was getting fed up with it. Seemed no matter how much I grind, I was having no luck. Might have been my party though, since I was using Asbel, Cheria, Sophie and Pascal.

What I like about Asbel's Yuri costume is that they use the Alexei battle theme from Vesperia for normal battles. That song is badass. The battle themes from Destiny and Destiny 2 that occur with the pre-order costumes are nice too, and certainly help in areas with bad battle themes. *coughStrahtacough*

lol, I wasn't even aware you could drop the difficulty. I think I went with the same party but had Malik instead of Cheria (just for the in-battle cutscene)

Regret not pre-ordering it; I really like Sophie's Rutee costume. :/

I think the only problem I have with the game so far is that soundtrack is on the bland side. I know Sakuraba doesn't like to change things up, but come on... Everything else has been great. The voice acting has been pretty top notch too.

Yes I know how to get all of the in game costumes.
But the in game ones can be obtained in the PSN right now for 1.99 each.
Except for the ToV Cameo costumes from the Carta game. But the ones on the PSN atm you can get them for free. I can give you a guide for it, but its the translated one for the Japanese version, but it still can help, some of the translated city name, and item might be a tad difference, but it can help you.

https://docs.google.com/Doc?docid=0ARRHUgO6_FEhZGpjNDV4Nl81Z3d2NW52Yzk
here you go. it isnt a walkthrough guide its more of a side quest/item getting type guide

Thanks, the guide helped quite a bit. I'm trying to collect those cards, but it's annoying finding the ones on the field since it appears to being completely random whether or not they'll show up.

It is great though not having to worry about saving TP for upcoming boss fights. You can pretty much go all out in every battle. :D

Yeah, the CC system is awesome. it does have somewhat of a downside, but I like it over the old tales system, even tho I love the older tales battle system. :)
Im trying to get Chaos, and Evil atm, I was too lazy to in the beginning but now Im just grinding to get them, that and for Gald, need to upgrade shops, since they fixed my favorite glitch in the game D: *goes back to JPN version to do the glitch for pure happiness D:* hahah.

Xillia's battle system is similar to old tales games, it has the free run, TP is back. I think the only good thing about the system is the Link artes, and Link Mystic artes. Thats about it.
Graces is one of the best battle systems in Tales imo.

Aww, I feel left out. Even though I have my pre-ordered copy of Graces, my sister left the PS3 at my grandma's. So, at the moment, I'm occupied with Symphonia. I found out the person who voiced Presea is voicing Twilight Sparkle! ^_^

:P Tara Strong voices tooons of characters. She's in like... everything. And she's awesome.

But you're just as left out as me. xD; I own Graces too, technically, since I got it for my brother for his birthday, but I can't play it until the summer when we're living together since he has it now.

Tara Strong is one the best things about the voice acting world.

I believe she was also Raven in Teen Titans, and Timmy in Fairly Odd Parents..

But anyhoo, I'm so sad that I can't play Graces. I'm actually "watching" ToGf on Youtube, because that's the only way that I can see the story. I might not be able to play through the dungeons / fights which is half the fun, but oh well. ;;

I might take up "watching" ToGf myself if I ever feel like it, but I'm not going to be able to play the game myself for a long while yet. Soooo, I'm doing what U_Flame is doing and occupying myself with Symphonia. Started a new file this past week and I'm hoping to finish it without it corrupting on me. ;w;

Now I kinda want to start a file on Symphonia... except I started Legendia the other night and I'm hoping to force myself to get through it since I've never beaten it before.

But I seriously don't like any of the characters so far in Legendia and I find the battle system to be horrible. ;~;

Join us Erica! Replay Symphonia! ♥

ugghhhh Legendia. I have the game and I tried to play it, but I never got far. I'm not a fan of any of the other characters either, and the battle system sucks. I also didn't like the fact that it wasn't multiplayer so my sister couldn't play it with me. So I quickly lost interest in it. Now even if I did want to play it I can't because we don't have a working PS2.

Yeah, if it were multiplayer I think I'd like it better since then my roommates and I could all play together instead of me being stuck with the controller. Although I imagine they'd probably play for like half an hour and then leave me on my own since the battle system is so difficult after Symphonia or Abyss's. ;~; (I can deal with the 2D linear system in the handhelds but what were they thinking doing it that way right after Symphonia so heavily improved it? Ugggh!)

I got all the way through Legendia. I honestly didn't find it THAT bad aside from Shirley's dub voice. Oh god, that dub voice. Then again, it was Mieu's VA too, so...

Oh, yeah, I never even mentioned the voices.

The voice actors don't bug me but all of the recording sounds so shoddy. There's an echo on pretty much everything. :( And you can't change text speed but whenever you press X to show the rest of the text, it also skips the rest of the voiced line!
