All I know Japan Tales they know how to advertise it. Their Trailers are amazing. Some of the english Abyss 3D Trailers like the game play trailer .... Im sorry but that was terrible.. I love abyss but the 3d gameplay they showed at Gamescon. Ive been watching Xillia, and Graces Japanese Trailers, I was convinced to get it.

Yeah but Tales is waaay bigger in Japan than here, hence the whole marketing budget thing. :( I also don't think their commercials would work as well here, since a lot of emphasis is just on the generic plots and then the mystic arte cut-ins IIRC which... probably would not be a big deal at all, here.

That is most true. Somethings in America that aren't popular that came from Japan, are a lot more popular in Japan.

Anyways, Since I got what I need in ToGf, Imma start my Sophie Solo run today. But not in Chaos Mode :x that stuff is scary D:.

Also, I made a file for Tales of Hearts a few days ago :3 via rom, but god Shingu's voice :DDDDD

Hm, Hearts actually has a translation script. Might have to try it out if not only for Kohaku. I doubt the patch will ever be completed anyways.

I'm playing Hearts without the english translation, I like Japanese, and I know what happens but not so sure.

I've gotten myself a little bit more obsessed with Tales of Symphonia again so sometime this week I might just start it up and play a little bit of my current file. It's one I completely started over, and I want to see how much I can get done (even though I accidentally missed an easy title at the beginning of the game) in one play through. I managed to get Colette's "Friendship First" title; now I'm trying to aim for Genis' "I Hate Gels" title.

What do you mean by like Japanese? You actually understand some of it? I know some people don't care and just play for the gameplay itself. It's hard for me to fully experience the game that way, which is why I don't mind having to wait for Graces or Xillia.

I mean I like the language Japanese. I do actually understand most of it. But Im no where near fluent I catch some things i understand. Also the scenes help alot. I been playing Japanese games before I took classes, Most of it I guess. I love story, and gameplay. But Graces as a wonderful story and a superb battle system.

Yeah if Xillia gets a localization.

I have no real interest in trying out the DS games. (Hearts... was one of the DS titles, right? XD) I tried Innocence as soon as Absolute Zero was done with their translation patch and I did enjoy it somewhat up until... a certain near-impossible boss fight and I just didn't like the characters or the story enough to grind long enough to get past there. :/ And since that was in English and I didn't get through it, I just kind of ignore the other ones. /bad tales fan

Apparently Tales of Xillia got a 39/40 from Famitsu! Not that... it... means anything at all to me since iirc Nintendogs got 40/40 and it was absolutely horrible. (And so did FF13, I think? And it was mediocre at best...) But still! I look forward to hearing about it from people who've played it. If it's good and it never gets localized, I'll probably import eventually.

    well from all the trailer xilla doesn't interest me the bit like Abyss on the 3ds has.

    on that note still waiting for TotW RM 3

    also I wondering was ToD2 good on the PSP and wroth importing?

    just cause I might get it along with ToPX when I next decide to buy them.

    Well Lightning. People has different taste in games. I'm sure alot of people will agree with famitsu 39/40 seems well. But I'm sure I'll love it. FF13 I loved it, just got stuck on it, and I got new games so skipped it for the time being. Also Pokemon gets real good scores, and Pokemon is one of the best rpg series for handheld systems.

    But I can't wait till Xillia tho, its another game for me to have on my PS3, and I personality think it is a good game from the looks of the trailers.

    The characters in Xillia, aside from Mira, kinda bore me visually. Either way, I try and stay away from most of the spoilers in hope that if it does get localized, it'll be brand new experience. Even after all this time, I know all the characters in Graces, but that's about it.

    Only reason I stopped with Innocence, is that it just didn't feel right trying to play with a keyboard. I hate playing games on the computer already, much less action games that require some button mashing.

    I have a flash cart so the controls were natural for me... and I suppose the battle system translated okay to DS, but it was still kind of awkward. Regardless, it was the characters that made me not bother. u_u I don't think I liked any of them.

    lol, Luca is a somewhat more tolerable Emil basically. But yeah, I would agree; cast seems a bit lacking.

    I liked the characters in Tales of Innocence. xD;
    The only character I'm really neutral about is Ricardo. He seemed to be there just for the ride. o3o

    I recently started playing Tales of Eternia and Phantasia, and they're both brilliant.
    Though, the voice acting in Eternia is pretty... monotone. xDD;;

    I don't know if I go as far as to call Eternia brilliant, but it does have it's moments. I have the PSX version and there is surprisingly a lot of voice acting in that one.

      Now I just want to ask:

      What would be your arte list if you were fighting in an actual Tales of Game? (so if you were in an actual character in the game, what would your arte's be.)

      So meaning, my arte list would go like this:

      Tiger Blade
      Shining Fang
      Demon Fang
      Indignation

      Basically, I'd be a close combat specialist~ :3
      I want to use much more artes; but this list just to give you an idea!

      And yes; its also basically a "favorite artes and mystic artes" list. :3

      Tiger Rage
      Raining Tiger Blade
      Pow Hammer
      Indignation
      Shining Bind
      Revitalize

      You can have six moves if you use the c-stick up and down options on Symphonia, thus the six moves. I have sooo many favorite moves though, such as Eternal Damnation, Demon Seal, Cyclone, etc etc. xD;

        Well, I guess if I were to really answer answer my own question:

        Tiger Blade
        Demonic Tiger Blade
        Tempest
        Ground Dasher
        Indignation
        Sword Rain Alpha

        But, If there were extra slots available, I guess I'd also use:

        Shining Fang
        Dragon Swarm
        Quazi Seal (It looks amaaaazing in ToS2. :3)
        Big Bang (Though sometimes I'd like the name changed on this one. :x Like...Cosmic Blast or something.)

          Ooh! ooh! I want to try this!

          My ideal character would have these moves:

          Artes:
          (Fierce) Demon Fang
          Psi Tempest
          Rising Phoenix
          Beast

          Spells/throws:
          Thunder Blade
          Lord of Creation (throw)
          Revive (From Symphonia)
          Cure

          Mystic Arte: Radient Howl

          As usual, all spells and throws would be set to shortcuts (pretty sure Abyss can have 4). Lord of Creation is an insanely good move in Legendia.

            To get Downloadable Content is going on the Playstation Network Store, if its Japanese region then go make a Japanese Region account which is quite easy, If it enter a code you can use the redeem option at the PSNstore.

            Also Hu ogui it's the same as mystic artes yes?

              I'm still a bit unfamiliar with all the artes, and Mystic artes, let me play more tales games, and get back with everyone on my costume sets. tho I know my favorite mystic artes/Blast calibur/hu ogui is from Sophie from Tales of Graces F, I dont know the name all I know its her 3rd Hi ogui.
