Can someone clear something up? I'm in chapter 4 but in 3 Gideon says that they were responsible for Celdic and that the provincial army had no part in the incident. But that doesn't make much sense given the way the provincial army behaved with simply intervening in the incident for no apparent reason, and because they knew the shit each merchant sold despite not investigating into the matter.

I doubt falcom will ever port it to PC. The japs don't buy PC and they wanted this game localised now before PS3/vita die. If they had any plans for a PC port, then they wouldn't have had to ask xseed to localise the PS3/vita versions now

You don't have to but you'll enjoy the story a bit more since you can get the references to past games after playing trails in the sky first chapter and second chapter
>>
>>323207956
Bring it to me straight.

Compared to the trails in the sky series(some of the my favourite games) is this game shit?

Game play I've seen look kind of shitty and pretty bland. Now I like anime bullshit, but what i've seen is pretty cringey.


Am I wrong?
>>
>>323229563

You "should" start at Legend of Heroes VI: Trails in the Sky First Chapter, if you're really serious.

LoH VI started the current "story" and established the continent and timeframe which VI, VII, VIII (Trails of Cold Steel), and eventually IX take place on.

You can play them out of order as long as you play them in order, within their own numbered entry lines like:

Trails in the Sky FC, SC, and 3rd make LoH VI, and should be played in that order.

Zero no Kiseki and Ao no Kiseki make LoH VII, and should be played in that order.

Trails of Cold Steel 1,2,3 make LoH VIII, and should be played in that order.

Since they take place on the same continent within the same 2-3 years, you'll get the most out of it if you play VI, VII, and VIII in that order, but you don't absolutely need to since each set of games is moreorless a new story that back-references earlier games.

I would if I could, and I tried. I'm shocked that the modding community still hasn't managed to break the PS3 open wide enough that you can install CFW on relatively modern firmware without having to do hardware shenanigans. I haven't played my PS3 in years and its still too far updated.

Was it that is was just too slow and/or too long.

It's not like they're necessary to play, they're just better, clunkier games and CS makes a few references to them here and there. It's only the second game that really expects you to have knowledge from the previous games and most of that is from the games that weren't localized anyway.

And that would be a stupid comparison. Lets compare two closed handheld consoles with a more limited library in comparison to a more open platform of choices for a game with no advertisement and a old entry part of the series. Nobody will be surprised when a game is released on its usual platform for its typical audience on a closed platform with lesser choice, come on.

If you don't use Alisa or Machias on the field and run up to an enemy then get out of it's range and then run back and then 360 quickscope it when it turns around for every enemy you need to get the fuck out

also it's faster to use Rean and hit the enemy several times while circling around it.

Cheaper, can play while comfy, differences are negligible enough. Also I guess for some being able to take screenshots and transfer them to the PC easily is a plus.

Portability

>>323245701
>wears glasses

Despite all that, Weissman 2.0 is still irrelevent to the civil war story. Sen III better start incorporating Fire and Water Septerrion into main story and not just info dump book volumes
>>
>>323245558
The third game will probably be on Vita as well as PS4, so there's also ease of transferring save data. You can transfer PS3 saves to PS4 systems too, right? I hope that works since I got the PS3 version before I heard about which system 3 was coming out on.
>>
>>323245913
I think Sen III being an SC/Ao level climax is a pretty fair bet.

What's interesting is Falcom hinting the protagonist may not be Rean.

What are the hints?

>>323246234
Kondo just said in an interview that Rean may not be the protagonist, but if he isn't, he will still be a major character and have his mysteries resolved

>>323246234
protag will be Crossbell cast again as they fight Rean again who got promoted as a military administrator to Crossbell after being annexed by Erebonia

I doubt it. It's probably only going to be foot note. Protag will probably be Cedric.

Now let's not exaggerate, Alisa and Millium's VA are both shit.

Draconian Japanese contracting issues.
>>
>>323247742
No one by the president and maybe vice-president of XSEED knows why. We can't get a straight answer from anyone of the grunt employees and I doubt they know.
Maybe some Japanese Business men know.
>>323247695
Rean and Claire were tripping defection flags all over the place though so expect them to join your party halfway through.
>>
>>323247742

Falcom don't do western localisations. Western localisations are all licensed to 3rd-party publishers.

So, when developing their own games, they only think about the market they serve first and foremost, and presumably don't sign VA contracts that allow global release for lower cost.

Since there is absolutely no guarentee a 3rd-party publisher like XSEED will want to localise Falcom games, they most likely don't agree to voice-acting deals that they themselves don't plan to do.
>>
Does anyone still have the links to the vocaroo links of Cold Steel?
>>
>>323247367
It's not the English VA. The shit that characters say is pretty cringey.

Osborne's an antagonist, but he's not nearly as horrible as the Society is at large, he's done a fair amount of good for the Empire at large, and he knows his business if nothing else.

This will happen. I betting on this.

>Rean is enemy for half-to-2/3rd of the game due to Osborne iron-grip, but now it's his friends that free him from those bullshit
Would be interesting but we need a temporary better mc at least or maybe new mc will make a roundabout and Rean will join us later, like Joshua did once.

Also Rufus is new regent of Crossbell but in Ao no Kiseki ending it say they fight against the invading force until they kick them out in two years claiming independence. So I guess that particular cast will make their move against Rufus.
>>
>>323265457
What I like to think that happens is that the Persona audience comes for the kawaii high school and social link experience but end up staying for the story and combat. Either that or they're too weeb and end up bored.

The high school setting is just an excuse for travelling shit which coincides with the Bracer guild being almost dead in Erebonia just to have the cast do the shit they used to, while the social link and free days system is really barebones and just to see more scenes with the characters you like, but either way you could play the game without ever seeing one and the story doesn't change, so there's not much substance to it

The only thing I don't like about the arcus is how it ends up giving much more emphasis to physical combat while casting arts is not really effective, though I think this is more because of how less customization there is with the new orbment system. I like my Emma build with Pandora wrecking shit though

I dont get why people do not complain about the school stuff and by no means I say the setting but what their implementation did to the franchine at least in Sen I. They LIMITED the exploration completely, you cannot move between towns easily, hell you cannot even go out and you will only visit another town by just traveling in certain chapters to never return again. That was the biggest complain in japan, being always stuck at school which is small and just dungeon crawling the same place for training.

THE BIGGEST change in Sen no Kiseki II was obviously that you can freely travel anywhere, every place is connected like Trails in the Sky FC/SC, in Cold Steel you have completely unknown roads and you can move anywhere you want with the motorcycle at any chapter.

If you had to compare the gameplay to another game what would you compare it to? I'm honestly considering getting it.

It was broken cause of the fact you can enemies twice in one turn with the pull including bosses. If you couldnt pull, stand next to them and do it. Its like 12-16k dmg per turn as an envasion tank.
>>
>>323267259
But you could return to a previous places and also when you are about to travel to another town you do it by walking not buying a ticket once, trigger an scene, advance to the story and then just return to the same damn place. If it were like Sen, then Estelle should always return to Rolent after Bose, Gracel, etc by ship.

In a sense Zero/Ao were a little less adventurous but Crossbell city is so damn big that I didnt mind to return always to the capital and yet you could go out to the surronding towns, various mission could happen in the way.

Laura is overated. She does nothing, she doesnt contribute to anything in the narrative. I considere her boring but better than Alisia or Emma at least.

And Im from /m/ so I like big robots. A little tired of japan love for sword fightins characters that always everyone is sucking them for no reason. Look at Rean, he is an student of the school of the eight leaves, its like the auto-badass + broken button he needed to be appointed as leader and mc.

>>323267680
Funny she is the only character with sword and joins a way latter in game, basically second half of the SECOND game.
>>
>>323267010
Grandia is the best comparison.

No idea where that other anon is getting Neptunia from...
>>
>>323267967

Even if you don't get to play her a lot, at least she's involved through the story quite a bit. I hope she becomes playable again. Even the sen 2 chapter with her isnt that long.

Sen 2 sold a bit less than Sen 1

And no way Sen 3 will top Sen 2's sales.
Sen 2 slightly less than Sen 1 is also worrisome given how Sen 1 ends, it seems the amount of people who dropped the series and people who got in the series were about the same (but more left than got in)

BAM, Sen's sales was a merit of the quality of previous games and not a merit of itself

which is explained on the thread that its split between ps vita and ps3

So yeah, sen's first 2 weeks had about 160k, life time was 220k

This is the most retarded thing you could spout.

Sen 1 was also released on multiple regions, whether it was simultaneous or not doesn't affect sales in the slightest.

Telling people shit they don't care about is a sign of autism, anon.

"nipfags" are the ones steering this train

you're just riding on it, tagging along
>>
>>323280148
Sales is always something interesting to see
>>
>>323280196
Except nipfags aren't the ones buying the english localizations, we are.

So, no, you aren't steering anything. You're holding it back by being negative nancies and trying to discourage others from playing the games because "muh secret club"
>>
>>323280673
>you aren't steering anything
delusional

if 0 fags bought english localizations, there'd be no impact on future games of the series

same thing can't be said if 0 nipfags didn't buy the games

even china and korea steer this train more than you ever will

You're a retard if you think the audience for these english localizations is primarily made up of japanese speaking autists.

Newsflash, pal: You're a tiny minority. The people buying these english games are ENGLISH SPEAKING PEOPLE.

Rean and Jusis need some goddamn break.

End of Sen II was basically a massive fuck you to both of them.

im laughing for real right now

They can go on a sexy vacation at the hot spring and get ambushed by yet another evil mastermind.

I have a Suzaku which has a same effect as seal

What makes it an SR gem? It has to be something special since i found it in a monster chest
>>
>>323283006
They're unique and uncraftable, I believe.
>>
>>323283331
What's the point if it has the same effect as a normal gem?
>>
>>323283687
It probably has some good stat bonuses attached to it. Doesn't it also cause burn?
>>
>>323207956
It's not out in Europe yet, dammit.
>>
>>323283006
It's seal OR burn
>>
>>323284478
>>323283897
It does cause burn

I'm retarded for not noticing that, cheers

Almost time for the school festival.

What the actual shit are you supposed to do against the final boss? I understand that you're supposed to hit weak points, but the fucker just outlasts me. Are there any crafts I should focus on using? The closest I've gotten was buffing myself, then using morning moon in hopes of scoring counters.

Do I need to play TITS before this?
>>
>>323288059
Not obligatory, but recommendable.
>>
Are there japanese voice options, or do you have to use a patched version if you want undub?
>>
>>323287005

Just won literally after making this post. Looks like basically the trick to winning is just abusing double buffs and praying to RNGsus he doesn't get link attacks off. Deadly end will fuck you.
>>
Cold Steel ends on a worse cliffhanger than TiTS, technically, but I don't feel the same need to immediately play the second game as I did when I finished TiTS. It's weird.
>>
>>323288715

It's probably not as bad because we know we're getting CSII. SC was unknown for years.
>>
Welp I got spoiled on some of the major plot points of Sen II. My dumb ass just can't help but click on spoilers
>>
I know the game has only dub, but does it have the japanese opening?
>>
>>323289829
I just finished the game and my hand is itching for more man.
>>
>>323290385
you mean the theme song or whatever? yeah
>>
>>323291659
Yes, the theme song. Nice.
>>
>>323288715
Cold Steel has a far more satisfying mid game. TitS literally ends as things finally start to get exciting.
>>
Any undub released yet?
>>
>>323293107
For PS3 of course, check the usual sites.
>>
>>323288715
There's nothing in Cold Steel that comes close to the level of Estelle and Joshua's story, so it doesn't feel nearly as urgent as FC's cliffhanger.
