That's the problem, her sob story ends after the first chapter. She barely gets any actual development or screentime but she's still shoehorned into the party as the main love interest. It was fucking disgusting seeing all those skits with her being the 'mama'.
At least Colette made me feel sorry for her.

>the implication that Asbel and Cheria treat Sophie like their baby was even more cringeworthy.
I played the entire game recently and never saw this happening. They only mentioned some times about "adopting" her into the family, but it was just a way to say that she was part of the family now.
The only time they treat her differently from the usual dependable cyborg is when Richard blasted her face off, but even then there was nothing childlike about it.

Then there's this entire thing about them teaching her words and also that Sophie LITERALLY says that Asbel and Cheria are like a father and mother to her if they were a family.
And then there's the whole adoption thing

Cheria has an inherently motherly nature, not just towards Sophie. And Asbel swore to look after her.

That was one of the hilarious and most interesting parts of Abyss.
Instead of some shitty gary stu with HIDDEN POWER we've got good-for-nothing manipulated puppet that will be hated by half of the cast for 1/3 of the game and forced to develop a personality of his own. Late-game Luke is much better than shitty edgelord Asch and party interactions are hilarious till the very end.

That tied with how tiny and unthreatening AoE spells are make for a pretty broken game.

More a reference to what the action is called

>?? (Kamui)

>The Kamui mode is a form the Priest changes into with his contracted Divine with a ?? (Shinki, literally "sacred treasure") as a base. This is the ultimate fighting form of a human and a Divine whose powers match, and this is considered as the Priest's trump card which allows him to deliver powerful artes. Upon pulling a sacred sword, basically the Sacred Treasure under Lyla, Slay fuses with Lyla and is granted the power of flames, enough to burn down a whole army of Hyoumas.

>In battle, once in Kamui mode with Lyla, Slay's great sword goes beyond 2 meters, allowing a large range around him. The sword range can also reach 4 meters, as well.

You know I find myself looking back on it to find memorable things to say about it in it's favor and I find myself... just blown away by how little I can really think of.

The main character was one of the worst I've ever seen.

Despite having the entire cast from ToS with vibrant personalities and interesting stories that everyone wanted to see continued, they did literally fucking nothing with it. You didn't even keep them as real party members and they served very little, if any, plot relevance.

The battling system wasn't bad but honestly if they fucked that up it would be a mystery how they were knowledgeable enough to even program the fucking thing.

The characters admittedly had some moments... that were promptly ruined by driving home a message harder than Spiderman was even able to.

The villains I've mostly forgot about. Or was there only three? I remember the guy with long red hair, the sadist, and that guy that wanted to bone the sadist loli like he was a junky for her.

The music was nice at least?

Also I admittedly liked the female main character for some reason, but I assume this says more about me than the game.

Seriously, how'd they manage this?

Still despite everything I enjoyed playing it. Twice.

Flynn is a faggot who should die single.

Estelle clam-teased Rita the entire game and then hopped in bed with Yuri at the end.

Judith was Yuri's fuck buddy for awhile but neither of them were really interested in romance.

Poor Rita hit puberty in a research facility and barely even knew it. When she left she had know clue what her sexuality was, and couldn't figure out if she wanted Estelle and Yuri. Got neither. Most likely molested by Raven at some point.

Karol is a kid and almost all kids are faggots. Probably grew up to be fairly cool since Yuri and the Don had such an influence on him.

No. They actually had an intricate, well thought out system that encompassed their magic, religion, and science. Just because it most likely went over your head doesnt mean it was just nonsense like you seem to be implying.

>After every dungeon let's spend an hour flying around to go see pointless cutscenes that do nothing for the plot

It was great for world-building and fleshing out the characters. It all had purpose. Of course, if you didn't care about any of that then I'm sure it would seem tedious to you.

>Combat is just spam
I see you have tragically confused the game with Graces.

>>250051937
You shouldn't skip 1 since you won't know anything about the world or get attached to the characters, which do make up a good part of ToX2.

If you really don't want to play it (it's not as bad as /v/ makes it out to be, ignore the vesperiakiddies), then watch a let's play at least.

>sidesteps
Dumbed down Flash from Rebirth/Destiny, that is easier to pull out and replenishes your CC at that.
I any other Tales game you have to time your jumps, bait an attack and then sidestep or use an Arte is a defensive way like Tempest.
In Graces you do a simple motion and there, have a dodge and free CC.
>multiple MAs
Like most modern Tales games? How do flashy finishing moves affect your opinion on a battle system, anyway?
>two sets of artes
Set on stone, even the basic Tokugi/Higi/Ougi has more versatility, and most of them are useless because of the stagger system I mentioned above.(Which you did not adress, by the way)

Most of them are uncreative and tacky "here, have more hits".

Clearly I don't, if what you're saying is "it's pointless to ever use B-artes."

Look, I'll grant you that some characters use it better than others. Sophie for example really doesn't use the system at all, and neither does Malik. But Asbel, Hubert, Pascal, even Cheria all have playstyles based around switching between A and B artes.

I give Abyss credit for having a really developed world that tries to explain several things that you tend to ask about in RPGs, e.g. how mages can't use their super big range magic attacks in the middle of a town full of unmarked civilians while party members remain unaffected during regular battles thanks to said markings.
It goes down hard with the FON FONS FONNING FONS but it's interesting how they developed it. There's also those slight touches such as Lorelei's fonon frequency being Pi.

>>250052746
They didn't do enough with anyone, really.
Luke's transformation was great, but after that he felt boring. He needed more too him than just redemption.
Tear's only development was liking Luke. Oh, and figuring out her boss was a bad guy.
Anise's gold digging was explained, but she remained a shit.
Jade got a reason for being who he is, but he didn't change at all. The closest he got to that was crying when Luke died.
Guy's gynophobia was explained, and he got over it. What else?
Did Natalia even have development?
Asche just learned to somewhat accept Luke and his companions. That's it.

I really like the game, but damn it definitely had its flaws.

360 version? Because after Barbos you will be eating tech-outs if you are not careful about what you are using to combo.

>>250053391
Because we only got the inferior version of Vesperia and Rebirth didn't come out while no Tales games were being localized so nobody expected it to be localized in the first place, while Vesperia came out while Namco was starting to localize more Tales games. On top of that, the game is pretty popular compared to other Tales games. I find the cast to be more in touch with western preferences and I believe that's part of why it's popular here.

I cannot understand how you can call the Destiny-like battle systems, where I can just whore the same move over and over again with little to no issues less mashy than Vesperia, which only has that during Overlimit which has a limited duration.
But whatever, like what you like, X2 and the R titles do have good battle systems.

Xillia had some neato cast interaction, but the actual story is unfinished dicks. You could skip it do fine, especially since xillia 2 focuses more on elle and ludger.

Can't say no to a request even if it Anise.

Sure.

What was up with that look? Seemed like an odd face to make when seeing your childhood friend crash into the ocean.

And that's why Legendia is the worst tales game out there. Shortest main story that takes 15-20 hours. Then the rest is shitty filler crap.

Go ahead and play Xillia. Elize best girl.
Xillia 2 has a digest of 1 in the main menu you can watch, but it's way better to play through it yourself.

As for Vesperia, remember that you have the story/skit guide at apps.lushu.org/vesperia and if you have CFW you can put in the '360 rip' menu patch.

They don't make you use it. But if you want to get through the harder modes with decent timing, you learn how to use it.

Unless you rather spam crap and block all day.

I couldn't figure out what his face was trying to portray either. Maybe "Yup, that's her"

>>250056325
Nah, ToS2 is worse. At least Legendia had a good soundtrack and grappling. And Senel is better than most Tales MCs we get.

Luke and Asche were always portrayed as incomplete personalities. Luke was a fucking child and Asche was a bitter old man. They ended becoming something we might never get to know.
Tear went from assassin to master's sister to annoying bitch to mary sue to religion destroyer to possible main character's love.
Anise went from annoying gold digger to traitor to heartless bitch to slightly annoying.
Jade went from heartless genius to sorrowful genus to general cold to asshole genius to slightly human friend.
Guy went from rich kid, to vengeful kid to supposed friend to gynophobiac to loyal friend to best friend to best abyss.
Natalia went from childhood friend to spoiled bitch to adopted princess to friend or lover to possible main character's love.
Asche went from mad dog to angry and forsaken to still human to self-pitiful and angry to enlightened before dead to unknown
Luke went from downs to child to spoiled slave to spoiled runaway to tsundere to maximum over spoiled to denial crybaby to atoner to average human bean to enlightened before dead to unknown

Wow, another new one. Neat!

This one I already got. Thanks though.

>>250055693
Honestly, Vesperia is a broken mess just like most Tales games. It doesn't help that you're not forced to do those combos anyways. I'd honestly say that ToX takes more micromanagement to get the best damage for each boss, but harder=/=better.

the rest is literally the rest of the story
it may say character quests but it's just a continuation
>>
>>250055808
I was even thinking of how they could reunite with some old faces like an older Jade, an older Anise, and maybe, just maybe Luke and Tear's kid That last one could also be replaced by Dist if the former isn't an option.
>>
>>250056514
Never. I wish Bamco would make sequels more often
>>
>>250056473
Sure. I'm mainly just playing devil's advocate, I agree with you.

I just think it's important to point out that even if a game has depth to its systems, if it doesn't ever encourage you to explore that depth it really might as well not be there.
