>>322144195
Some references and characters from the other games show up. Heck, in the Prologue dungeon (not the endgame one that you start off in) you see a party member from the Trails in the Sky games make an appearance, and it's kind of a spoiler for SC.
>>
>>322144215
exactly
>>
>>322144135
Sara and Crow have hidden link points that are visible when they're party members (more obvious with Crow since he joins for the last 30-40% of the game). Towa might have them too but isn't playable.
>>
>>322144195
You'll miss some references and won't know the details about some characters (like Bleublanc and Olivier), but it's nothing game-breaking.

>>322144215
Nope, it's still worth playing.

They didn't sub victory quotes and its clear the soundtrack was written to have dialogue over it. "Just turn the voices off" isn't a viable solution. The game feels soulless with voices turned off.

I got the game as a gift and am enjoying it, but I don't blame anyone who refuses to buy it due to lack of Japanese voices.
>>
>>322146267
I still expect delays, but it should be months instead of years.

It's a shame that some people can't get past not having the original, Japanese audio because I really like the dub for this.

>>322146835

That's such a cheap, nonsensical comeback.

Video games have changed. I had no problem playing through Trails in the Sky FC with no voices because the game was originally written to not have voice overs. The soundtrack was written to be all the audio stimulation you need.

The soundtrack in Cold Steel is background music. It's written to be spoken over, an accompaniment to the spoken dialogue. That's why even in unspoken scenes, text dialogue is still accompanied with constant sound effects. It feels perfectly fine in those scenes with the sound effects, but when all you have is silence with background music, it feels soulless.

>>322146957

This is also not a valid point. People who are shitposting about something as specific as dual audio clearly care about the game itself. That's why they're complaining. If they didn't care they would shitpost in more blanket, less specific statements, about it being "weeaboo" or "shovelware", but complaining about something like dual audio means they had an interest in buying it, and looked into it further to find that it didn't have dual audio. That's a potential lost sale for Falcom or Xseed.

I already knew too, so I made a point of focusing on him as often as possible. It made the ending and how shattered Rean was pretty good, because anything you do with him once the festival prep begins is obviously an attempt to make a clean break, but he's not very good at it.

Not that guy, but when it's a direct continuation of a game that sold very poorly, and basically requires you to have played another game that sold very poorly and that very few people who played CS1 actually played (SC) and several that aren't localized, I doubt it will do all that well, unfortunately.

Rean's motivation in CS1...is to find a motivation, which is why he enrolled in Thors. Honestly that is a much more relatable thing to real life (especially in the sort of academy setting they have going) than anything Lloyd has.

also despite the what you'd expect from the setting, Lloyd is way more harem insert/all the girls on his dick than Rean ever is

Both Trails in the Sky games are good. The second TiTS game is widely considered one of the best in the series.

If you like Cold Steel then you owe it to yourself to play through the story of bracers Estelle and Joshua. Prince Oliviert is a playable character and hilarious as fuck

Trails in the Sky is like Cold Steel with slower gameplay and better characters/plot. SC is a lot better but you have to play TITS first.

You get the deluxe rod from ranking up from fishing.

I'd assume it's the same for the next ranks.

Just about hit the Nord Highlands.

Some fishing spots only have 3, you have to use groundbait to refresh a spot

After you catch 6 different types you can buy the 2nd rod (earliest chance to get that rod is Chapter 3), and after you catch 12 different types of fish you can trade in for the 3rd rod

Loyd is a people magnet, that's true, although the game mocks him for that.

Crossbell is automatically better because it has Estelle and Renne and the Cold Steel games don't.

>>322166041
EP is determined by the cost to open each Orbment slot. Characters with less lines get more EP. The trade-off is that in the Sen games, that's the only bonus to having a single line since the orbment system is fucked.

They have only themselves to blame, and a few of the dumbasses in these threads who keep encouraging people to play Cold Steel first.

On the other hand, it might be interesting to have played Cold Steel first and then get to play a game with Oliviert as a playable character.

That's not so much what I'm talking about, since he could tell Joshua was smitten with her from the get-go. It's more the fact that you can tell he's a pretty shitty father from the fact that his own daughter thinks he's a complete fuck-up. It's implied that he spends too much of his time on work.

So we're in agreement that Rixia is purer than Estelle. Glad we came to this conclusion.
>>
>>322168119

>>322168114
You can skip just any animation by pushing start.
>>
>>322168114
You can skip them, but you also don't need to grind. I've been skipping battles left and right and so far the game feels like easy mode even though I'm playing on hard. There's always a shortage of mira and sepith but it doesn't matter because you can just spam crafts in every battle.

No use s-break when there is exclamation mark.
>>
>>322173724
>When the next turn is a guaranteed crit
>When an enemy is about to get a turn and you have a party member at low health
>When you generally want to kill something fast

Etc.
>>
>>322173724
Critical + STR50% + 200 CP for most damage for S breaks.
When an enemy uses arts, use stun crafts or crafts which cancel arts such as Rean's Autumn leaf cutter
>>
>>322173870
When is there an exclamation mark? You mean in turns where enemies have an assured crit?
>>
>>322173808
Why don't you get it on PS3.
>>
>>322173724
You basically want to use an S-Break any time you want to do large amounts of damage without waiting for your turn to come up.

Personally, I rarely use S-Crafts when it is that character's turn. Seems like a waste. For example, if it's Rean's turn, I won't just use his S-Craft. I will do a normal attack AND THEN immediately use the S-Break.
>>
>>322173721
>50 hours
>Just finished chapter 5
How? I'm playing on nightmare most of these chapters are pretty short and the boss fights never take more than 5 minutes.
>>
>>322173967
Yeah. Sorry about that.
>>
>>322173967
well, yeah, you can use it to steal turn bonuses as well, but there isn't always a turn bonus TO steal. So holding onto 100-200 CP and waiting for turn bonuses is not always the best way to go, in fact it's kind of a waste.

I use them quickly and then start building up CP again.
>>
>>322173724
You generally want to S-Break when you can get benefits from taking an enemies spot on the turn bar.

Lets like there's an attack boost for the enemy and you S-Break before the enemy's turn and get it yourself. That's what I mean.
>>
>>322174067
He's probably talking to every NPC. I have around that much time by chapter 5 talking to most NPCs and doing most of the quests.

>>
>>322174067

>>
>>322173724
Just get buff before you S break. Crit is nice but it doesn't really matter since even non-crit kill most things in a few hits even on nightmare.
>>
>>322174115
>You generally want to S-Break when you can get benefits from taking an enemies spot on the turn bar.

YES, using them to steal an opponent's spot on the turn bar is a good idea. HOWEVER, you don't want to hold onto all that CP and wait for an opportunity to do that. It is a waste.

The fact is that S-Crafts/S-Breaks do A LOT of damage. You want to use them ASAP, then immediately start building up more CP so you can do them again.
>>
>>322174294
You can't.
>>
>>322174252
Do not sit on 200 CP waiting for a turn bonus to come up. That's fucking stupid. S-Crafts/S-Breaks do a lot of damage - Way more than any other attack you can use. Use your S-Breaks as soon as you can and then start building up CP so you can use them again.
>>
>>322174469
No I meant like all the possible trophies you can get in a first playthrough
>>
>>322174497
So I should always use S-breaks or S-crafts the instant I reach 100 CP? Is the 200 bonus negligible?

>>322174252
The former. Ideally but really it's up to you as how you want to use S-breaks.

Admittedly I'm thinking more SC then CS when it comes to this..because CS is generally considered an easier game anyway.
>>
>>322174636
>Should I use them immediately at 100 CP?
Not necessarily. There IS a significant boost at 200CP.

If you need immediate damage, use them at 100CP. If you don't then build up 200CP and then use them. If you see a turn bonus like a critical attack or something coming up, THEN you can sit on it for a little bit and use it at the right time.

Otherwise, sitting on it and waiting for a critical turn is dumb and a waste.
>>
>>322174636
If you think 100 cp can kill then use it but I tend to wait until it's 200 cp since Alisa's stupid craft and items are too broken.
