I have two CE's preorder. I want to be extra sure I get mine. And I think I'll keep both of them, because I love to collect Tales stuff. Already have japanese Famitsu DX Edition's of both Xillias.

Also, Xillia 2 is amazing. Sure, it reuses a lot of areas and things like that from Xillia 1, but character episodes and side content is amazing. Overall this is a lot better game than it's predecessor.

I never played Vesperia since no suxbox. Graces was fun as hell at first, but I was completely annoyed and sick of the combat by the end that I stopped using hard mode and upgrading weapons and ending up trying to cheese through the end just to be over with it.

How is Xilia? I got it during a PSN sale just to play it eventually but i've heard alot of shit about it so idk if I want to start it and get annoyed about doing a whole lot of nothing endlessly.

I find thats how most tales games make me feel. Fun at first but they just keep going on and on with all kinds of needless story required side tracking like the cannons and shit in Graces.

He also didn't mention how you can only change your party inside towns.

Which was a batshit retarded decision from bamco, because if I go to a dungeon and I decide that I want to play with someone that isn't in the current party I have to go back all the fucking way out of the dungeon to get him inside the party.

At least the game has fast travel, but it doesn't make it any less of an annoyance.

Xillia 2 is like a 7/10 game at best. Or a 7/10 rehash.

If you're going to play it, you'll find out.

It's literally a BIG BIG step down from the original xillia, and I can't grasp what the hell was in their heads when they made that.

Xillia could've been great, but all the bad decisions that surrounded stopped it from being just a mediocre rehash.

Yep, destroy Vesperia.

The production values and characters were top-notch but I play Tales games for the battles and the story.

Don't say anything until you play side quests, especially character episodes. These alone make this game worth playing.

Nobody cares about the combat system. Vesperia destroys every other tales games in content, story and characters. This is why Vesperia is the best Tales.

>playing tales for the story

That aside, no. Like every tales game it takes until end game until you're able to use the combat more freely. The amount of content, interesting content, trashes both xillias combined, and the game actually have an acceptable story on top of all the content you can do.

And for vesperia PS3 you don't even need NG+ to get the combat moving, by the end game you'll have everything you need and the extra dungeon will get you to level 200 easily.

Hearts R is probably the only that you mentioned that topped vesperia combat/story wise, and it also gets awhile to progress (around end game) and story also tops it. Though, a given, vespie destroys it content-wise.

Played all of those you mentioned, by the way.

The only cool side stuff to do in xillia 2 was the giganto hunting, which was also the best way to get money to pay that shitty debt that stops you from progressing the game.

Xillia 2 is a mediocre game of an already abortion that was the first xillia.

A sequel game set a year later would in all likelihood have the same character with the same techniques being set in the same world with similar combat mechanics wouldn't it? Yes the over reliance on old areas is a bummer, but there are new things in the game. That the point I'm trying to make.

DLC is one of the big reasons I don't like Tales anymore. Now they just sell the costumes for $3-5 each instead of them just being in the game like standard.

I know Vesperia had DLC costumes, but it atleast still had the usual amount already in the game so the DLC ones really were extra.

I want to play it but nothing compares to the original. Not even the original.

Symphonia was the first Tales game I had ever played. I saw it at K-Mart on sale for 20 bucks, but was weary, because I had never heard of the Tales series before. So I head to Game Crazy and see it cheaper, so I consider it fate and pick it up.

I was 16 at the time and I didn't have a lot of games so this one was played a lot. The moment I got home from school I would do my homework and head upstairs to play some Symphonia. I would spend no less than 2 hours on it at a time, sometimes up to 5 or 6. It was just me, a Gamecube, and Symphonia.

And I look back on the grand adventure I had with Lloyd and pals. And I just can't seem to recreate that experience. I know why, and it sucks.

Even with Vesperia, as great as that game is, I just can't get into it, or any game for that matter, like I did Symphonia, those many years ago.

My fucking sides. If you lurk any RPG general in japanese boards, praising the xillias causes a shitstorm of trolls, and if you look at amazon.co.jp you can see how pleased most of the fanbase were with both games.

From 2011 shitstorm that was xillia 1's release to 2012, every tales general/thread in futaba/2ch was nothing but hate.

Sorry to tell you that.

>>258261057

>>258260869
Um, no. Nearly every single Tales game gets an 8 out of 10.

>>258260625
The fanbase is 80% women, mate.
>>
>>258260068
But everything in it was done on such a grand scale, from the world map, to the story, artes, and graphics. This game defined the series.

It is true what they say when the series turned to shit afterwords. It's not even a case of them trying to best themselves and failing, because first you actually have to try.

Because we're like Leon in DC. We're trapped and we have to deal with the path we chose.

But seriously, it's because we still hoped xillia 2 would fix the problems in xillia 1, but it didn't do that without inserting a bunch of problems on its own.

I'm still buying zestiria after a price drop though, just not day 1

Don't really care if you believe me matey, but you're an idiot if you think people who played literally all games of the series, that is the japanese fanbase, are pleased with the games coming out recently.
It's not like what I'm saying is hard to believe, just look at vesperiafags. The only difference is that the japanese fanbase has rebirthfags/destinyfags who are also annoying as fuck. Like me
>>
>>258261579
I know, I just wanted to know which ones were shit and I don't trust the reviewers. Then again why would I trust /v/
>>
>>258261183
Eternia was still better. As far as the supposed drop in quality, I think that has to do with the fact that Vesperia perfected a style (Symphonia), whereas every game after that has been a combination of teams experimenting and trying to find there next mainstay formula.
>>
>>258262036
I'd say try Tales of the Abyss or Vesperia.
>>
>>258261912
To be honest, I'm inclined to believe that a lot of the Vesperiafags haven't even played Vesperia since most the Vesperia "discussion" is "WHERE IS THE PS3 VERSION BABA"

Vesperia should be in godtier and remove Hearts R and Destiny since nobody played those.
>>
>>258262062
The one thing vesperia had going for it was not having many flaws that plagued so many games of the series while delivering a huge amount of interesting content to do.

That's pretty much why it's praised. Even xillia 2, a fucking sequel, feels barebones next to vespie.

Ignore him he's a faggot that doesn't know shit about justice.

Tell me one tales game with the same amount of content vesperia has while keeping all top notch production qualities and combat.

If they kept the trend with vesperia maybe these fags would shut up, but now bamco just throws you some barebones shit and expects you to buy all the DLC.

At least the code geass DLC costumes were pretty neat.

Eternia, Symphonia, Destiny DC, Hearts.
>>
>>258263298
Yes, but they fucked up english translation.
>>
>>258263275
He's not even wrong Vesperia is objectively the best game in the series.
>>
The thing about Vesperia PS3 is that Bamco knew that fans would be pissed about it since a lot of them had bought a 360 specifically for Vesperia which as we know the Japs really wanted nothing to do with. They had to really double down on making it superior in order to try and win the fans back.

>>258263036
What is all this extra content that Vesperia has anyways? Two extra characters and a bonus dungeon?

>>258263298

Will Xillia 2 have Jap voice acting? Isn't Xillia 1 censored?
>>
>>258263029
That's because bamco lost all its shame in its pandering to fujos. Ludger is probably the biggest and most shameless fujobait in the series.

None of those have the same amount of content as vesperia PS3 matey. Doesn't mean they are better games.

Played all of them, including both versions of hearts, and R doesn't have anything close to the production value of vesperia, so no.
>>
>>258261329
Start with Symphonia, because it's battle system is like the basis for other games to come. That means simple and easy to master.

If you like Symphonia then play Vesperia next. After Vesperia go for Eternia.

You should eventually play Eternia and PS1 remake of Phantasia but I recommend these last because anymore, you may only like them if you are familiar with the series already.

Play Abyss any time after Symphonia but at your own risk, because I know you will like Symphonia and Vesperia but you may not like Abyss. It's characters are dysfunctional and the the overworld is laggy, and the loading times are not so great.

Innocence is good too, and for a DS game it is pretty impressive, but like Eternia and Phantasia, you may only like it if you are used to the franchise.

Never play Tempest. It is the sole reasoning for Namco creating the term escort title so that people understand that this is not a main title in the series.

Yeah but Hearts R isn't even out yet in the US or EU, and the only fan translation of the DS version is still in the making.

So Hearts R is only at the top, because some dude heard Baba say it was his favorite, or they played the Jap version and has that opinion of the game. Even if you know the language and can read Japanese, your experience would be in it's purist form, because you aren't playing it in your native language, and even if you don't agree with that, everyone else will.

It isnt fully translated yet. Theyre basing it on a trailers frim a couple months ago that had some lines awkwardly translated and no after battle quotes. It has been confirmed that the post battle quotes will be translated, and the full translation has at least one more qc check before the November release.

Hearts DS also has a translation script m8, although no skits.

Also they put the Hearts DS fan translation on "hold"(aka canceled) since R got announced.

There is literally NO reason people shouldn't have played all of the main Tales games by now unless you didn't want to shell out some shekels for a 360.

For having very few flaws as a tales game, and you'd have to nitpick hard. The combat is great and every character is a viable main, including Kohak that is a healer who kicks ass in the literal sense.
From likeable characters, to an actual nice story too. Playing both versions of Hearts would be cool since some really good scenes got replaced on R for some more shallow ones.
R still got some good added scenes though.

Nah unlike Vesperia Symphonia actually had a good story instead of a disjointed mess that felt like three completely different plotlines slapped together and its battle system was pretty progressive for its time

And amount of content be damned. Team Symphonia sidequests are the absolute worst, and despite the amount of content, I've had more fun with Tales games with significantly LESS content. The amount of content doesn't matter if its foundation is one of the weaker ones in the series.

How can anyone like Xilia compared to older games. I played 6 hours or so of couch co-op with a friend game seemed fine at first main character was fist fighter which was cool. The lead woman looks retarded though and going from place to place is literally like straightline corriders. Then when we got our 4th party member the fucking fps is battles dropped dramatically. I'd honestly say it was the worst tales game I've ever played.

The Team Destiny games are genuinely better than the majority of the Team Symphonia ones (yes, even Graces. Say what you will about friendship but structurally its story was more sound than Vesperia's narrative and Graces ran with cliches from the beginning, instead of winding up a disappointing mess than embraced the same cliches it attempted to avoid for much of the game).
>>
>>258265921
That's because it IS one of the worst Tales games and Xillia 2 is NOT any better. This is why we should have gotten Vesperia PS3 instead.
>>
>>258265826
If people want to play it that bad they should just buy a used X360 and the game or import it ffs.

People treat it like it's some kind of mythical, forbidden experience forged by the gods themselves. In truth it's an average Tales game that winds up being somewhat middling due to its fantastic characters and production values and less-than-stellar story and combat (even by the series' standards).

Well as you can see they won't localize it. The game was released in 2008 or 2009. It's already been 5-6 years. If you want to play it that badly then you'll just have to deal with it. I mean you people praise it as the best game in Tales series.

I love Yakuza series but you don't see me getting all butthurt over it in every thread that they won't localize 5 or Ishin (because I already imported them).

>>258267006
Yeah, and I'm on the last chapter of Xillia. I just never got around to finishing it.

I finally caved in and bought Vesperia because it never fucking lowered below 30 dollars.

It's really fun, considering the last game I played in the series was Abyss, it feels like a walk in the park to get through.

I don't understand japanese, and I'm sure Ishin is a game I need to understand to fully enjoy it.

It's like the AAA version of WotS games.

As the guy who's been posting vesperia screencaps I can say, vesperia is a good tales game but not worth crying over. Besides, if you really wanted to play you'd have learned Japanese years ago.

2009-2014 you'd already be fluent. I learned the language when I was like 14 though.

Yakuza Ishin is pretty dope by the way.

Reminder to buy Hearts R so we also have a chance at getting Innocence R.

Also remember to buy Hearts R because the story is legitimately pretty good (although it might be too much for Vesperia babbies).

Bamco said if it "sold well", but just saying, they usually have unrealistic expectations when it comes to sales.

Fair enough. I feel as though not many people saved my pics that night. I figured I would have seen plenty of them by now, but it's usually just the games and guides for some reason.

Not disputing the placement, but the details on the Vesperia one's pretty shitty. What are the "objectively positive steps forward" if you hated Graces and Xillia, but love Symphonia, Legendia, Abyss, and Vesperia?
>>
>>258274708
There is probably a way, but i'm not too sure.

Last thing I heard about being able to play online is using something called "FuckPSN" or something.

I meant to save some of your stuff but I forgot like a dumbass.

like the lightswitch for one.
>>
>>258275398
There's a point here where I think there are a bit too many. 1 I get it, you love the game and want to look at the cool pics. 2, you want to use one and keep the other sealed and mint. 3, maybe just to hold on to and sell? But I really question why you need to own so many. I can't even think of what I'd do with more than 3.

No, you aren't. He grew on me near the end of the game.

Also his artes are probably the most stylish looking compared to every other protag in Tales, so that made him even more likable.

Playing Symphonia as first Tales game.

How do I get good?
>>
>>258277707
Use defend a lot, press back during it to backstep for dodging. Spam your arts as much as you can, usually using one 50+ times will make you able to learn a stronger version of it when you reach the right level.

Also when your character gets a title from doing stuff in plot or combat, change it on the status screen to get better stats from level ups. Each one gives different effects, green means more in whatever you have on, and red means less.

And switch playable characters if you feel like it, you can play as anyone you want so find out what you like.

No not yet.

>Also, is Tales of Graces good?
It's kinda average not much else worth saying besides the combat system.
>>
>>258279168
Hearts R isn't out till November.

Generally, Graces is considered to have one of the better battle systems, plot and characters not so much. Never know though, you might like it.

Tales of Symphonia Chronicles had dual audio and Hearts is JP voices only.
>>
>>258279516
See, I would totally buy Symphonia chronicles, because I played the original on Gamecube and would love to hear the JP audio (though that's not to say the english audio was bad).

But I refuse to play it at 30 frames per second, holy shit Bamco, what the fuck were you thinking. even GC version was 60.
>>
>>258279168

People who like Tales of Graces will generally agree that the combat is the only thing that really stands as being good, apart from one or two characters.

So play it for that at least, but keep in mind that there is scene skipping and holding down R1 while in the overworld will tell you what you should be doing next.
>>
The last Tales games I played was Vesperia and I thought it was shit compared to Symphonia. Any reason I should play Xillia, or it's sequel for that matter?
>>
>>258280335
it's fun
>>
So wait, why does Japan hate the Xillia games again? The only other one I played was Symphonia ages ago, but the only problems I had with Xillia was that the second world felt really tacked on, and not a whole bunch of secrets and exploration.
>>
>>258281047
Because a lack of content for an anniversary game, Xillia was promoted to be an anniversary game but it was subpar, not to mention the shitty boss mechanic.

Xillia 2 fix most of the problem.
>>
>>258281047
It was mega-hyped like it was going to be the best thing ever. Then it was rushed because muh anniversary.

ToX2 got the same score as ToX, it's not bad at all, guys.

Man, I hope Yoshito Higuchi will direct the next Tales game after Zestiria.

After he's done with helping Smash Bros Wii U development, he needs to go back directing another Tales quickly.

I liked xillia 2 but it could've been great if they didn't make such retarded decisions in its development.
