Any game that has some good sides besides being anime (read: having tons of lewd girls) would've been better if it wasn't anime. That's not the case with this one though.

Kondo plans were to appeal a wider audience nowadays as an entry point to the franchine expecting they will play the older entries. I can see this failing so hard, I can probably count with my hands "new fans" trying to play older games of any franchine just because they love the latest entries. Maybe japanese are different, I dont know.

Yes and no.

Yes. For PS3 owners, it's finally a real JRPG adventure game.

No. The game and its sequel use a grading system. That system revolves around hidden quests and hidden objectives, so players need to follow a guide to play the game "correctly".

>>323943508
Crow ditch the guns anyway but always wondered who taught him to fight like that. He has very good skills even if secondary talent.

You do realize the big joke about Ys, right?
It's a "retelling" of how he writes about it years afterwards, so he always gets the girl but then inextplicably ups and leaves while she's all wet & wanting.

A fun game where one third is about you learning about the diverse Erebonian empire and all the people in it, and see how political tensions threaten to split it in half as people plot behind the scene. Another is about helping people around you by doing odd-jobs and killing monsters and exploring old ruins. The final is hanging out with your friends, playing cards with them, becoming closer with them as you learn about their past, and go on train rides with them.

The coolest thing about the game is the setting. Not just the deep lore, or the world building, but actually how NPC's feel alive since they have small character arcs that change as time passes.

Also the setting is not a standard medival fantasy setting, instead it's set in the awkward period right after an industrial revolution, so we find ourselves in a world where knights and people with swords and magic can fight alongside airships, tanks and guns, and it somehow works very well.

>what's the most similar game to them?
Grandia is my favorite comparison because they're similar somewhat in combat (although Cold Steel's combat is much better) and have a similar feel throughout.

>What's exactly good about them
The strengths of Trails games is writing and dialogue, and they usually have pretty interesting and well-developed characters. For Cold Steel in particular, I really like the voice acting, combat, and the overall plot.

By like halfway through Cold Steel 1 (the second motorcycle test) Angelica admits that Rean and Towa would make a cute couple, and then she barely, if ever, hits on her for the rest of the game.

She may be keeping up the act, but she knows she's lost.

Also if I remember correctly from the polls some anon posted in here yesterday, Towa was voted the most popular girl in Sen, so making her canon would be the wise decision.

What's good about them? Well, I wrote this post that describes the feeling >>323951505 of the game. The best thing about the game is the writting, it somehow manages to make the world feel very alive since it has some very solid world building, some great characters (including random NPCs who have small character arcs) and a plot that surprisingly is deeper than what you think for a game set in highschool.

The gameplay is pretty fun too, since it feels nuanced enough without making things too complex and you can customize your characters in a ton of ways.

Dude, it's a dating game so Falcom would be stupid to make anyone a canon love interest, much less a side character like Towa, so calm down. If anything, the one closest to being the main love interest will be Alisa, who will probably be the protagonist for Cold Steel 3.

Grandia comparisons have been thrown around since the hype for SC happened.

It's probably the most moronic out of all of them.
>>
>>323961090
It's not that bad saying the combat system is similar to Grandia. You have positional combat, delaying/interrupting casting, customizable magic, etc. Of course, one has a real-time system where the other has a more static turn based one, but they're still fairly similar.
>>
>>323961956
>one has a real-time system
dafuq?

Neither of them have real-time combat.

They are very similar. Cold Steel has things that Grandia doesn't, of course, but it's not that different at all.

This guy saying the comparison is moron is, well..a moron, to say the least

Grandia is built around canceling enemy attacks and combos. Those are the core concepts of Grandia's combat, and they aren't present in these games.

>>
>>323963703
>and they aren't present in these games.
So, basically, you know nothing about Trails combat.

Gotcha.
>>
>>323963703
Grandia isn't "built around" cancelling attacks, you ignoramus. That's just one part of the combat system out of many.
>>
>>323963972
He's talking about the different kind of "normal" attacks: Combo and Critical. You could use Critical attacks to interrupt an enemy's normal attack.
>>
>>323963960
Those tips are pretty stupid. Luckily you can turn them off or so that's what I remember.
>>
>>323963972
It is fundamentally impossible to have Grandia style combos, and only crafts/arts can be cancelled as opposed to everything in Grandia.

>>323964112
It is a core part of the combat with several bosses throughout the series testing your knowledge/skill with the mechanic. The combat would literally be broken without it.
>>
>>323953420
>>
>>323964325
It's not nearly as important as you claim it is. I've beaten both Grandia I and II without giving a single fuck about trying to cancel anyone's attack. If it happens, it happens, but I never prioritized or thought about it.
>>
>>323953924
>>
>>323953420
>>323964465
>>
>>323964554
Some bosses instantly kill you if you don't cancel certain attacks. Try again.
>>
>>323964835
Nope, you try again, fuckhead. I know what I've done and haven't done.
>>
>>323953420
>>
There is literally zero practical difference between Grandia's "cancelled attacks" and Trails' "delay". The only major difference is that, in Trails, not every enemy is susceptible.

I personally think so.
Though I don't know a western video game that really takes its time and shows off the characters doing lots of pointless stuff to flesh out their characters the fact that there are so many stereotypical anime tropes shamelessly used just feels annoying.
If the style of the game meets up with somewhat better writing that doesn't use the same old tropes then it would be great. As it is its enjoyable but there are obvious annoying shit in it.

It's the other way around regarding content, the psp versions are updated but look like total garbage. There's also the issue of censorship of The 3rd on the PSP.

Dialogue/Cutscenes - This game has awful, absolutely awful dialogues and cutscenes. Even though almost everything is voiced over the dialogue, (they have some parts that are pure text) it is as if the writers are 10 years old. Their humor is the most laughable thing ever and is the last thing from funny. I suppose if you're 8 you would actually laugh and find most of the humor funny, other than that it's laughably pathetic. This wasn't a con to me but this game has a LOT of talking in it, so if dialogue is a turn off for a game then avoid this game. The animations themselves in the cutscenes seem so forced and unsmooth it's awkward at times. It's like watching a poorly animated school project video made for art class at times; for example, seeing an airliner move frame by frame and seemingly float in the air, completely out of place. I understand this game is a port and somewhat old, but other games from this time had better animations than this.

Characters - You may think this is a weird con but let me explain. This is one of the worst aspects of the games, absolute worst. Before I make any statements on it, think back to when you were 13 years old and had 'great' ideas for video games that were RPGs and thought of these great characters, that's how these writers were. Take any Schwarzenegger film and you can apply the characters to his movies. Estelle is a complete dumbass, and is clear through the dialogue that she is as smart as a 6 year old or at least is severely mentally at the age of 16; however, she inherents the skill of using a stave like from her father. Estelle will irritate you beyond belief with her stupidity, the writers just try too hard to create comedic effect with this stupidity, mind you. Furthermore, she cannot pick up on innuendos, at all, like any other 6 year old kid. Remember that one kid in your class that you wish would just shut the up and if they didn't you would freak out? That's Estelle in a nutshell. Her character is shallow and easily predictable, like every other character in the game. Moving on to Joshua, he's not nearly as bad; however, he is just as predictable. He comes off as a secretive and depressed kid, or at least traumatized as a child (which he is). He is smart (in terms of this game at least, considering everybody has the logic and thought process of a 10 year old) and quick-witted and can decipher a crime scene with ease and pick up on trends or piece things together like any normal adult. He has his moments of depression that generally goes into a romantic cutscene with Estelle, with a kidish twist of silly humor and 'cheer me up' laughs and giggles. These 'Bracers' are 16, not 12 and going through puberty like middle school kids; however, that's how their romance progresses and is actually cringe-worthy if you think about this enough. Those are the two main characters that actually matter.
>>
tl;dr: If you have the mindset and intelligence of a 12 year old with 8 year old humor then you will absolutely love this game. Let's put it this way, if you remember playing games like Dragon Quest as a kid, loved them, and then played this you would get a nice feeling of nostalgia followed by pure boredom and realization of how mediocre this game really is.

I was kinda surprised with Zero/Ao setting, its by far the most advanced looking city in the whole franchine in fact Tio one of your member its a hacker and you use modern technology like in our world. The city Crossbell its similar to one of ours in some ways, its was based in NewYork and part of Hong Kong aparentely. There are some drug lords and the beggining of Zero too, while the main characters know about them they cannot do anything because they maintain the status quo.

A bit of all this. Fact is he joined the idea with the promise that rewriting the history will help Crossbell and cure his daughter along the way. He shared the dream of Dieter for independence of Crossbell too.

>>323968965
They were desesperate to show their powerful weapons. They could have won easily but utlimately Ouroboros ditch him, left Crossbell defenseless and divided. Easy for anyone to invade.

I think the true villains aside from society are Osborne and whatever dude its controlling Calvard. Rocksmith didnt look like douche to me but maybe he has ulterior motive to act friendly to Libern and Crossbell, word is that while making peace with everyone they take part of their economy and Osborne know that somehow their military streght of Calvard its getting bigger. Ultimately I think if their goverment its somehow evil Kilika might be an antagonist.

You get three ultimate weapons per run if you collect the books you can craft one off the bat, the others are quest and story related. After beating the game once you can exchange U-materials for shards.

You don't even have to get a crit, just equip the Vermillion master quartz, buff her STR stat, then use her 200CP S-Craft to hit the damage limit.

Speed Quartz is good since it gives a permanent 10% boost to evasion when maxed.

Max out Mobius since single target items now target a small area and this means you give everyone max CP from one Zeram Capsule.

She's inviting them for a foursome, Rean's too dense to notice.

Vermillion on Laura
Juggler on Machias
Moebius/Falco on Fie
Criminal on Emma, give her Fire Bell too for extra fast.
Force is good on Rean, you can give him Orochi or Tauros.
Megalith gets passed around between fights to refill CP.

On your first run? Tio is a must. It also requires a perfect evasion tank, and you have to push Arianrhod into a corner so that she doesn't kill your casters with her normal crafts. She can move 8-9 spaces I think. Also, when her mask breaks, her stats skyrocket.

Sen-Ai

A boy falls in love with a boy.

Unable to confess, he is gifted with by a deus ex machina with his sempai's arcus number. Never minding the strange area code, he immediately calls him, and is overjoyed to find out that he has a crush on him as well.

But, the next day, when he recounts the previous day's confessions to the boy, he only looks at him with a perplexed expression. After some investigation, he finds out that the boy he called is not the same sempai he fell in love with. In fact, he doesn't exist in this universe at all. He is his sempai's alternate universe counterpart, who has fallen in love with the MC's own AU self, who too is blissfully unaware of his crush.

Hijinks ensue as the two strike up a deal to give each other their darkest, most private secrets in order to equip the other with the weapons they need to conquer the heart of their other selves. While the two chase their respective loved ones, DRAMA ensues as they begin to fall in love with each other instead and question the NATURE of LOVE.

You seem to forget that you don't get much in the way of equipment or quartz early on. Spamming S-crafts early in boss fights leads to a large delay for your characters, leaving bosses free to total your ass with no resistance.

Probably fairly decently for a PS3/Vita game.

It's also one that is mostly known from spreading through word of mouth, so sales will be a slow trickle. The mainstream gaming sites aren't covering the game at all, like IGN or Gamespot, probably because it's PS3/Vita only and it's a longass JRPG (they do cover other Japanese games fairly often). Kotaku is probably the only mainstream site to advocate for this game (along with Trails in the Sky)

To start off, Type-0 completes its story in one game while Cold Steel ends on a cliffhanger. If I had to summarize what the game is about, it would be about seeing the start of a civil war/revolution. A lot of it takes place in a military academy that's more reminiscent of a normal high school, but the game skips over most of the boring parts of it and focuses more on the "field studies" that take place each month. During these trips, they go to different towns across the country and learn about the current state of things, like about political factions rising up and what's going on around them.

It's interesting, but if you want to get the most out of the story, you'd want to start with the Trails in the Sky games considering they're the start of this series. A few important characters are introduced and developed in those games that also appear in Cold Steel, so it's highly recommended to play the Sky games before this one.

He's just a faggot that should have manned up and really killed himself instead of throwing a 13 year old girl tier drama fit.

Wow, and I thought this was the one series where the Japs had decent taste.

From screenshots of Sen II, it seems he joins the party temporarily.

At the end he even meets with his aniki to break out of a illusion and the end goal of the game is pretty similar to gurren lagann where Simon/Lloyd wants to rescue Nia/Kea.

Gem/quartz for pure strength, then yes.

Laura's father qualifies, so "middle-age" is a light term for the elderly guys she is looking for.

This game is pretty boring, to be honest. I want to stick with it because some of the characters are nice, but it feels like busywork.

>>323999938
It's a lot shorter if you don't do the sidequests and don't talk to NPCs. They're all a part of the world-building that this series is known for though.

The game would be better if I didn't have to wait till 29th to play it.

The skirts are absurdly short in this game. I wonder how much time they spent in ensuring you can't see any pantyshots.

If you destroy the working parts, what you'll get is a broken machine.
