This is currently the best tales of game
Yes, it even surpassed Vesperia
Tales thread I guess.
I played it
it was really great the ost is fantastic but still there are some flaws
the game as a whole is way better than xillia 1/2
but not better than Vesperia
Rose is the best girl
Xillia 1 is an unfinished, unpolished game. Only reason you might want to play it is for Xillia 2 which is a lot better.
Graces F is hit or miss, but it has some of the most content in a Tales of game.
For Zestiria, its mostly hated by Japs for being buggy and with DLCs taken to a new level for Bamco (Cut-off content and false advertising). I haven't played it so i can't say my opinions of it.
I think it's worth 15 dollarydoos. It's still a pretty long game with a lot of content, and the combat system is the best yet (except for Xillia2). The cut corners and general unpolishedness is noticeable though.
I see. I might wait until Xillia 1/2 come on sale as a bundle. I did that for Symphonia Chronicles, got both games for 20 George Washingtons.
I'll wait to see if Zestiria levels out, maybe they'll release some HYPER COMPLETE, ALL DLCS AND AN EXTRA DILDO version. I already am salty because of the Dark Souls 2: Scholar of the First Sin bullshit, so I'll not be tricked again.
>Xillia 2 which is a lot better
Except it isn't, outside of the slightly improved combat system (that you have no reason to fully explore because Ludger is beyond broken and there's literally no reason to use anyone else).
I don't know, Ludger might be broken as fuck, and locked in your party, but atleats he's fun as fuck to play. I still do use Rowen because of Tidal Wave spam, as well as, Gaius. I thought Xillia 2's story was above average for the typical Tales of game though; it had pretty nice world building, but the game is terrible at telling you this.
fixed it for you
the novel or manga seems to be very gay also
many in 2ch are saying tales is dead because of it
Ludger is dante of the Action JRPG
the most fun I had with a character in this genre
also one of the best design ever
god dammit this image everytime EVERYTIME
I swear she will never be in anything other than this costume once I get the game
>the tales team didn't like his design and thought he is very NPC looking
The tales team have shit taste and are bullies who are constantly shitting on Okumura's characters, see Dezel, Ludger, Elle, Alisha and so on.
I don't think Okumura has a single character from a mothership title who doesn't die or get fucked one way or another by the story.
holy shit now that you mention it
he also said in an interview that he was really happy for designing a MC in a mainline tales
end up disappointed once he knew they didn't like it and ludger will be a silent character
This is one the worst JRPG franchise I'vee ever played.
Worse than FF,DQ and Megten for certain.
Why do I keep playing these games with these stupid annoying anime cliche characters?
All the fans seem to consider whatever the latest game is to be the best one as well with is a sure sign of shitty unmemorable series this is the Call of Duty of JRPGs.
>The tales team have shit taste
definitely. cant believe they almost tossed ludger design
>in zestiria he was happy for designing the main heroine
>lol no she is not
yes they hate him
Isn't that the one Tales coming to PC?
>gets an OVA with the main character
>ends up getting sidelined in the game
The battle system is also pretty stupid, since it forces you to use 2 characters after a certain point.
how many you can take?
OP I'm not sure if you're being sarcastic but Zestiria is really one of the worst tales ever made.
And I've been a fan of tales for over 13 years
>Yfw you like that overrated gamecube shitfest
i enjoyed abyss and vesperia and i thought this would be the jrpg franchise to keep me interested with ff shitting the bed. but its just become pure fujoshit and i can't be bothered to care much now
>not a party member
so is two lewd lolies an overkill?
We have your wallet surrounded! Give up the Gald and nobody gets hurt
Actual mustard here. I played and enjoyed the Tales with the massacre and fight against magic and the Tales with the talking swords and enjoyed both. I'm sure this new Tales game is enjoyable too right?
friendly reminder that zestiria is a confirmed homo game for girls.
>the guys hotsprings scene shows more skin
>mikleo is sorey's single love interest
>muh strong female characters
holy shit .. whats up with the asses in this game
for a second I thought Rose pants are down
I wish it was a homo game for homos. Maybe then I would buy it. I can't stand these boring prettyboys.
Back to neogaf you go. Lolis are great.
White panties are best panties.
Pick the first 3 letters of your name and the last 3 letters of your last name and put "Tales of" at the beginning
>"tales of Marñez"
>All those Edna fanarts in pixiv with a high rating
how did she became this popular?
Does anyone have more of those bitch fight webms? I thought I had more than >>284180702
but apparently not.
I can feel the inner black man spirit within me, calling out.
>I remembered watching the OVA and liking her design and personality
you fucked up Namco
dude, mikleo was refreshing as a heroine
>DestinyR reincarnation of Phillia will never be playable in every Tales game from now on.
>You will never be able to liter the field with insta-cast Indignations, Flare Tornadoes, and Tidal Waves
>No BC will be as good as her Rebirth Crusader
Tales of Turann
That's literally my name plus 1 n
>Apparently scamco wants to bring tales to PC
>starts with zestiria
The 1080p and 60 fps will be great if they can pull it off but you know what tales needs to be on steam
Their spells look boring and lack umph, Xillia's spells in particular. I mean Phillia's Indignation inverses colors for a second. Cheria's did that too but not to the same degree. Graces had really fun spells too but you couldn't go crazy with them unless you got lucky with Pascal's insta-cast summons skill. Or if you played as Accel Mode Richard.
Divine Power is cool too. It's just that on Chaos, I only ever had 1 BC bar or 3.
since when do japs give a shit about ass? I thought that was a recent western thing
>some of the most content in a Tales of game.
Considering a lot of the side stuff is really shitty, I don't think that's really worth mentioning
Considering most of the main stuff is really shitty, I don't think it's worth mentioning at all
Vesperia PS3 fan translation soon motherfuckers.
I didn't even know Zestiria was headed for PC. I'm guessing it will just be a straight up port so its fundamental issues will still be there. Though I wonder if local co-op will still be in.
I am almost done with the game I finished beating Simone so only Heldarf is left.
Gotta say this is indeed one of the weakest tales of.It does have more contents and way better music than Xillia or most tales of for that matter but the most important part of the series the battle system is really bad.Even if it didn't have those technical problem the gameplay would still rank low among the rest of the series.
But man that OST though.
Sakuraba need to step down already I don't hate the man but the tales of team is obviously holding him back cause I know he can do better than that.
Go Shiina need to become the main guy for this series.
>the tales of team is obviously holding him back cause I know he can do better than that.
This is the truth.
But who's to say Go Shiina isn't being held back as well? Assuming he's very talented (I haven't heard much of his work) he should probably make music for games without the strict guidelines that Tales probably has when it comes to music.
> Literally kill the last boss with the actual, physical power of friendship.
Nope nope nope nope.
I'm glad I quit this series after Vesperia. I was already lukewarm playing that.
>not liking vesperia or xillia means you instantly like the overrated gamecube shitfest
there are more tales games faggot, and no Im not talking about graces or abyss or even legendia
>the tales of team is obviously holding him back
sorry but I think that guys a total hack
I really appreciate the soundtracks of the vidya I play and listen to most of them unironically, but his music is soooooo fuckin generic most of the time. It's like he takes a few months to make some good tracks and then rushes the remaining soundtrack because he lost interest.
I can't even remember a single track from the Dark Souls 2 soundtrack.
I heard he once said something along the lines of "I only put in as much effort as the game is worth"
what a douchebag
A lot of people say his music sounds generic. Fucking how? Generic because it sounds like him? It's his style, he owns that shit.
Plus, in Souls games you barely ever hear any music so no shit you don't remember it.
Doesn't mean it's bad. In fact, it's some of the bets music I've ever heard.
And do you think an annual releasing, mostly generic series like Tales is worth the same amount of effort he puts into games like Star Ocean or Baten Kaitos? Also, who's to say he doesn't put in the same effort? His music in the Xillia games is pretty good. And as was said earlier, Namco probably just wants Tales to sound a certain way, that's why every game has similar-sounding music.
>A lot of people say his music sounds generic. Fucking how?
thats why I started my sentence with "sorry but I think"
If I were to listen to the soundtrack again I couldn't assing each track to each boss. It's just background noise, almost every track sounds like taurus demon. Yes there are some unique tracks, I think the one with the Crypt-Defenders was good, but thats literally the only track I remember. Videogame soundtracks can be more than just background music
I've listened to the Dark Souls1 soundtrack a lot and I still probably couldn't assign each track to each boss. The Soundtrack for Demons Souls sounded a lot "crappier" than the DaS-OSTs but they actually had personality and variety. Thats what I'm missing with most of Sakurabas songs
I'd prefer something like
this is going a little off topic but the souls franchise is the best reference point for me to point out what is wrong with most of Sakurabas music
>Tales games other than Symphonia
Is there a guide on how to do this?
PSP CFW is easy because it's literally one app, but I recall having to jump hoops in order to CFW a PS3.
Can I still play online without getting b&? I just want to play fighters and such, no CoD shit
>Pedo get pandered at
>Homo males too
>Homo females as well
>Straight gets nothing
And they say Namco is better than Bioware? At what?
>it's been a month
Don't you do this to me after all this time. I was a fucking teenager when you started this shit.
I can't really judge DaS2's music because I haven't heard all of it. And I can't remember any of the boss tracks to be honest. Are the Crypt Defenders those egyptian statue-looking guys? I do remember that their theme was pretty hype.
I can remember most tracks from DaS1 but with both of them the ones that stuck out the most were the ones in their main menus.
I mean that's just 10/10 stuff right there.
You're right though, DeS had a very unique sound to it, whereas in DaS1 and 2 some boss tracks just blend together. Although you can hear in DaS clearly how Sakuraba sometimes tries to imitate DeS' music a bit, at least with the Nameless Song, compare that to Return to Slumber, it's pretty similar. Or the Bell Gargoyles theme sounds pretty DeS too at times. But overall I think the main difference is that you can hear the dramatic increase in budget from DeS to DaS.
I don't think there's anything wrong at all with Sakuraba's music in Souls, it's his darkest composition and some of the best music ever. (maybe)
Can't you see what happened?
>Zestiria on PC?
>THAT MEANS NAMCO MIGHT BE PORTING VESPERIA IN 2019 WE HAVE TO STALL THE PROJECT FIVE MORE YEARS TO MAKE SURE IN THE MEANTIME KEEP POLISHING THAT DRM THAT'S GONNA BE BROKEN IN 24 HOURS ANYWAY
To think, I've learned enough moon to play tales games in the period that they have been working on this. You could have too, anon.
Already played the Xbox version before learning moon though, and backlog is so big I don't really want to replay a game.
which ps3s are CFWable? Is CFW super easy or what is the demand about?
I think I have a ps3 from launch, I already bought all the games that are worth it and now its gathering dust
