Elize is too young for making such a big decision while Leia is pretty much Judesexual. Inb4 Xillia 2, it's canon that Leia is still into Jude on Xillia 2 and her VA compares her interaction with Jude to an old married couple and that's a big deal on Japan.

Symphonia had great levels, decent combat, mid tier plot, and good OST. It was well rounded and the best game overall. Plus a bit of nostalgia.

It's combat system is definitely the most complex.
Symphonia is the base of all 3D LMBS.
Abyss is a stepping stone towards Vesperia.
Graces is watered down shit.
Xillia 2 fixes Xillia's shit, but Ludger is the entire focus in combat and the link system is pretty shit

>>
>>101248112
Complex isn't exactly good though and I would even argue it's not anymore complex than Hearts/Xilia.

Vesperia is fun, but there's not much skill and it's very spammy; Graces is the logical conclusion of Vesperia's combat with some terrible choices thrown in for no reason.
>>
>>101248162
I meant of all the 3D games, that's why I didn't include any 2D games in my list.
>>
>>101248112
Graces is more complex with the need to manage CC and attack styles. Though honestly I've never felt inclined to master any tales of combat system beyond what was neccessary to beat the game.
>>
>>101248185
I like that Vesperia had different kinds of artes that you had to link together and think about how to link them together. Sure you can spam the same move with overlimit, but finding a way to link most of, or all of a characters artes is not as easy as Xillia where pretty much everything links together and everything is a base arte except for 1 arcane arte.

If you ignore Vesperia's broken overlimit I think it's easily the best 3D Tales.

>>101248333
Graces is not complex at all. It's probably the shittiest 3D Tales game of them all.
>>
>>101248141
Wut. There's a JRPG general on /vg/ that gets Tales discussion all the time and we get nightly Tales threads on /v/.

>>101248112
I don't think it's the most complex out of the new generation of Tales games at all. Vesperia kind of got boring with the amount of sandbagging you could do on bosses in my opinion. Personally, I think Xilia takes more skill to master and forces you to use more of each character's skills to really perform well. It had flaws, but I felt they are going in the right direction with boss stances and interrupts since it forces you to develop your own combos for each boss. Coming up with the most optimal tempo was pretty fun and you still had to dodge/block properly instead of just spamming shit.

Graces actually takes a bit more to master than people think. Also, worst 3D Tales is easily Legendia or ToS2.

But yeah, Graces was pretty shit.
>>
>>101248716
Legendia is 2D. ToS2 is only really bad because of Pokemon isn't it? I haven't played it so I don't really know.

The only videos I've seen of Graces that really impress me are the ones where 4 people play as the same character and sync up their combos, and damn does it look beautiful.

Graces really had the potential to be the best 3D Tales game, but man did they fuck it up.
>>
>>101249009
Oh right, Legendia was 2.5D. Anyways, I haven't played ToS2 since launch, but some of my main complaints are

Monster hunting/raising was shit.
Artificial level cap for the old cast made no sense when they were fun to control.
Controls were clunky and not fluid, battle just didn't feel as fast paced without a reliable backstep.
Hit detection was awful.
Marta's MA was broken.
No skill customization.
>>
I played about 10 hours of this. Was loving it for the first hour, then it died really fast for me. I think the environments and shitty copypaste monster designs turned me off most, it all seemed so damn lazy. Like they put in minimal effort just so they could get a game out there to milk the shit out of. The combat was fun at first, but I quickly got bored of it. The voice acting was terrible and after just finishing a game with near perfect voice acting (Uncharted 2), I just could not adjust to such low quality voice acting. Alvin was the only decent voice, everybody else I'd reach for the mute button.

Disappointing too, because I hate wasting money. Only cost me $10 but still.

I'm sad so many people hate Graces. I count it among my favourite Tales games, and the battle system is great fun. I ran Chaos with my housemate and we had a blast. Also the skits and character nuances are hilarious. It's just not for people who want their Tales to be darker, I guess.
>>
>>101249579
Baba stated the reason the "dungeons" in Xillia are so shit and there's no puzzles is because some people have trouble with them. Add to that the fact the game was rushed in order to label it an anniversary title and you've got a pretty shit game.

What the fuck are you talking about? How are the other games darker at all?
It's because the combat is shit, the characters are morebland and flatter than usual, and the story is shit revolving around MUH FRIENDSHIP.

I don't see how it was a stepdown. I've played Abyss, Vesperia, and Symphonia in their entirety and loved Graces' system the most. It's smooth and nice to work with once you understand it. My only complaint was the shortage of artes.
>>
>>101250028

Exactly, it revolves around friendship, and most of the game doesn't take a serious tone. It's colorful and humorous. The themes in the game are all positive with little real conflict. I don't know how you could say the characters are flat when we get to know them very intimately -- it's probably more accurate to say you just didn't like them.
>>
>>101249579
The dungeons/environments are probably the worst parts of Xilia, but I didn't care too much since I never particularly liked the dungeons in other Tales games. I found them to be mostly repetitive with the most annoying puzzles ever.

VA was fine in my opinion.

>>101250160
Practically every attack in Graces was an arte.
>>
>>101250028

>>
>>101250407
>I liked asbel

But Asbel and Cheria are the worst characters in Graces and the worst Tales couple.

>>101250344
Not him, but the characters are just generic archtypes without much development (Cheria anyone?) and you totally ignored his point about combat.
>>
>>101250395

Sorry, I should say Cryas Artes.
>>
>>101250344
Not really. I love Hubert and Malik, but Cheria is the most bland heroine of the series and Asbel is even more of a white knight than the average Tales protag, though I did like seeing him actually mature by the end. Pascal is a little overrated since the rest of this cast is such shit, but she's a pretty decent goofy genius character. Hubert is just the straight man and has his childish side, but he's still really bland. Malik is the best since he actually fucks around with the rest of the cast for his entertainment, and he plays the role of mentor when need be.

As for FRIENDSHIP, it's a theme in pretty much all of the games, except maybe Abyss, but the other games are not completely centered on it. Just because the other games don't focus on FRIENDSHIP like Graces does not mean they are darker. And if you really thought that the story wasn't supposed to be taken fairly seriously I don't know what to say.

He didn't make any point about the combat, he just said it was shit. Which if you don't know how to use it I suppose it is? I don't really feel like going into detail about it when I doubt anything I could say would change his mind, but I disagree. As for lack of development, not even true. Skits give you really specific details about characters, enough that it's iffy to say they're shallow. The problem with Cheria is that she is way too much about Asbel, but the maternal and responsible aspects of her character are well shown in her scenes. We even get parts of her backstory and details of her childhood in Lhant. No one is given shallow treatment, Cheria is just a very basic teenage girl personality wise so she doesn't stand out.

Are you really saying Graces combat isn't shit?

Terrible CC system.
Shitty A-Artes system with illusion of depth.
No Aerial play, absolutely inexcusable.
Mechanics encourage turtling and destroys the pacing once you start spamming.
Cheria is broken.
Hubert is the only fun character that utilizes the A-B system properly.

Only problem with Asbel is he never fucking grew up. All the way until the end he couldn't just accept that shit just happens and sometimes you can't avoid certain things. That fucking horseshit he pulled with lambda and Richard made me mad as fuck, that was such a goddamn asspull

He did mature a little. He's still a faggot that won't accept that he can't save everyone, but he did realize that he can't run away from his problems and he can't abandon the people of Lhant.

I think the CC system comes with its own benefits, namely an inability to run out of MP. That keeps the combat going but prevents you from simply spamming your best moves. You can argue that the used combos can become repetitive and I'll agree, but you can't just spam in a conventional sense. I'll admit turtling can be an issue, but part of why I like the system is the dodging mechanism. If you're good you can even dodge through an enemy and gain CC to aid your combo. That's pretty good. As far as I can tell A Artes just work much like artes did in every other game.... Oh, and dodging is pretty comparable to unlimited freerun anyway.

>That keeps the combat going but prevents you from simply spamming your best moves.
It takes away resource management, which is not an issue at all in the other games, and it promotes spamming your best moves. If I ever see someone playing Asbel, I'll be sure to hear BUUUUUUURN every 5 seconds.

Asbel just didn't want to abandon his friends to death. He was a dramatic shit about it, but there was nothing unreasonable about that. His entire character is about self sacrifice. He gave up his dream of being a knight to take the position of lord, and he was willing to sacrifice himself before letting anyone else take the fall with the case of Lambda. He acts selfishly and stupidly and doesn't always come away from it unscathed. His father died, and if it hadn't been for pure luck Hubert might of never reconciled with him. His own friends are always taking shots at him for being a dense motherfucker.

This always get me.
He already sacrificed everything for his dream. Abandon his rich as fuck family, abandon his friends, alone and he only has his father's sword, which he sold for cheap prize to live.
Yet he still survive after time skip, almost being a full pledged knight, now have a full white disco outfit and bro as fuck teacher.
He's just too awesome for me.

Sorry, I don't like mediocre jrpgs. I know that people like cute girls and what not, but the gameplay is so horrid, at least Gust is decent enough, but even then I wouldn't call them amazing developers. The artwork and whatnot is nice, but the gameplay isn't what I want.

Why do I enjoy "entry-level" Tales games like Abyss and Symphonia more than the others? I've played all the others once but I've played Abyss and Symphonia through like 5 or 6 times each. Am I just falling victim to nostalgia?

Is Abyss considered as entry level? I always thought it makes people quit because they can't handle the cast.

Spamming is inevitable with this kind of combat system. As far as I know, it goes back to Eternia with fireball spam.

Xillia did do a good job of reducing spam though, and Xillia 2 fixed most of the issues with Xillia.

Ludger has some insane combos since everything was pretty much developed around him. I wish I could the video of clip and radiantroar doing some awesome combos.

This is why you play the undub.

What do I need to do to play undubs on a PS3 from stock settings? Never really felt the need for mods and hacks since I do most of my gaming on the PC (Only used the PS3 for exclusives like Last Of Us, Heavy Rain, Valkyria Chronicles, etc)
>>
>>101263007
You need a PS3 with custom firmware. If you're on current official firmware you're gonna need to downgrade. Depending on how new your ps3 is you might be unable to get on CFW.
Once you're on CFW then you just download the undubbed game from the pirate bay and load it up.

Yes, this is another one of those cases where paying customers get fucked over while pirates can get original voice acting with translation.
>>
>>101262739
Sadly Vesperia isn't so easy, all i can find is a questionable torrent for the 360 version and I have no idea how to get such a thing to run
>>
>>101263160
I think I get the basic process, more or less. After getting the undubbed game ISO, I guess I'll need a blu-ray drive and blank discs?
>>
>>101263374
Not needed. You just pass them to the ps3 HDD over LAN.
>>
>>101263374
no, pirating PS3 games is nowhere near that easy.
you need to downgrade you ps3 firmware to 3.55 or get a hold of one at 3.55 because you basically need it to pirate.

>Cheria is broken
Graces is easily the most balanced localized Tales game when it comes to power between characters. She may be "broken" but the difference between her and the rest of the cast is small.
>Mechanics encourage turtling
>Hubert is the only fun character that utilizes A-B properly
Hubert is hands down my favorite character in the game, I do main him. Regardless, it's clear you suck at this game from these 2 statements. The only people who think that Graces encourages turtling are the ones who can't get the enemy to stagger and people can't keep their offensive going, I.E people who aren't good at the dodge mechanic.

>Shitty A-Artes system with illusion of depth
If anything Graces had the one with the most depth because you have to make use of each A arte to effectively hit monster weaknesses to stack damage and stagger them. Unlike in other Tales games were you setup the ones with the most damage and combo potential and use that moveset for every encounter in the game, you have to be fluent in Graces. Not only do you have to make use of the A Artes to effectively deal damage and stagger, they are also pretty important for characters who have exceptional mobility, or need to pay attention to spacing, like Hubert. I'd type more, but I'm done tearing apart your shitty argument. I've clocked about over 300 hours on each localized Tales game besides Legendia, and I can confidently say Graces is hands down, the best combat.
