I think you mean Lil bro. Hubert was five years younger than Pascal and he still confessed sooner than his faggot brother. One of the skits is Pascals sis asking Hubert to take over her duties of bathing Pascal. Best end for best tales protag.

Am I the only person who thinks the Tales games are getting worse, at least game-play wise, with each release?

Xillia was so fucking boring, despite having better characters then all the other tales games except Vesperia.

When I was playing it I kept saying to myself "it's alright, i'll go into a puzzle dungeon soon" and it never happened. That field bullshit replacing the dungeons was an absolute disgrace.

Symphonia dungeons were fun from what I remember, having puzzles and shit to solve. Sliding around on ice and pushing blocks about. I love that shit. At least its more interactive then running a giant loop around a field looking for 1 vanity item before moving onto the next area.

Why do I keep hearing this? Xilia's cast was shit except for Rowen.

Alvin betrays you twenty thousand times and he's so obvious about it too.

I don't feel the combat is getting worse (it gets better with each new game), it's just everything else. The constant 2worlds story rehash, the lack of or removal of exploration and dungeons etc. I mean c'mon, this is an RPG, you can't do that.

Really, it's not something that will stop be being a fan of the series, I just feel frustrated that the series is moving in a direction I don't particularly like, and it seems like i'm in the minority too.

Nah, the Tales Series Studio has been working on awful schedules since some years ago.
Namco wants then to release a console, mothership game per year, and if you know anything about game development you should know that is impossible, they have to cut content and rush everything.

Graces Wii was bugged to the point they had to recall the disc back and issue fixed ones. Anything that has to do with air in battle is buggy as hell even in the Graces f version.
Xillia was an anniversary title but it was release a good year after such anniversary and it was still incomplete. Lack of postgame content, gimped Artes sets, a rushed third arc, garbage boss mechanics. Etc
Shame, because the cast is probably one of my favorites in the series. Xillia 2 fixed some things but has its own share of issues.

And the game mechanics just get dumber and dumber with each release. I prefer Arte chain that are more cohesive like on Vesperia or NDX, not this whole combo everything into everything deal they have going in most games since Destiny PS2.

Graces is just the bottom of the barrel of bad game design. Artes that are set in stone, a weakness system that is counterintuitive to how the A/B Artes system works, garbage damage calculations where MA far, far outdamage anything else, stagger is shit too, there is not air-play, you cannot even jump, a dumbed-down Flash mechanic in the form of the broken Around-Step. I could go on.
>>
>>102258927
I liked Alvin, maybe i am biased though as I played the unsub.
His final showdown show down with Jude and genki girl was so well voiced, gave me shivers.

But really I just like any Sugita character irrationally.

Graces was one of the games I've played solely for the main cast. But Graces had several npcs I quite liked as well, the graphics were pretty solid, there was a lot I liked. The plot is balls but it never seemed to hamper good party interactions, the way Abyss' plot did (having everyone hate each other for plot reasons). The whole "friendship is magic" thing kept them all on good terms with one another.

Compared to Xillia with creepy pervert old man and Alvin... good god he is so inconsistent. There are points where it just makes no sense for them to let him join the party. He fucking shot Leia point blank in the back. Jude has some saintly fucking forgiveness.

assbel: typical MC number 1045. friendship is everything for him. total fag

sophie: soulless doll number 549. she is mostly boring as fuck but she has her cute loil moments if that's your thing sick fuck. shes Jesus

cheria:the "mother" of the group. typical pure maiden lusting after the mc cock. but like all mc, asbel cant see it because he wants to befriend Richard more.

malik: typical old wise mentor number 1076. for half the game hes just there until he decides to troll the party with pascal. likes fucking with sopihes mind and mostlikely a pedophile.

hubert: /k/ and /a/ love child. hes actually pretty smart but suffers from otaku syndrome and nerd rage. pretty cool guy in general.
also hates asbel for half the game because daddy issues

pscal: 100% altruism and the best character. her roll is to flash out everyone by acting like a retard. shes wants to rape Sophie and has a thing for her sister. she never baths.

Richard: king with trust issues. he joins maliks and pascals trolling team and exist for making the skits funny. pretty much that.

lambda: actually not your ANCIENT EVIL BOSS. hes a monster thing that got treated badly in the name of SCIENCE. his "dad" was so busy "playing" with him, he didint give hes "lover" enough dick making her so burthurt she ended up dooming the hole planet. lambda grow up to be a edgy faggot that hates humanity but asbel being the moralfag he is, convinced him stop.

he gives you free power ups later in the game so hes not that useless.

little queen: lamda 2.0 only shes actually a threat and can kick your ass if not careful.mad silly humans are destroying MUH NATURE so she killed them off over 100 years ago. she and Sophie becomes one and for some reason shes an "adult" now with tits bigger then cheria.

why assbel has no threesome is beyond my understanding

If I had played Graces without the Future Arc available I would have hated it probably. Knowing the twist would lead somewhere later made it less ridiculous to me.

>>102260715
Because they can't appreciate characters that are actually well-written. Zelos and Alvin are very similar in some ways but the difference is Zelos' personality is consistent, between his self-loathing inner misery and cowardice, and his outwardly projected 'smooth cool guy' act. Alvin is sort of trying to do that but fails horribly and just comes off as a total unjustifiable dick.

Vesperia was the last "great" Tales (the series peaked with it).
Then Namco went down the DLC path and rushed shit and rereleases and "remasters" on VITA.

There's Zestiria coming and it still looks inferior to Vesperia. The fuck.

Vesperia was my first tales and I enjoyed it. Graces was mediocre and I suffered through it. Playing Xillia now and while its better than Graces, it still has its problems. Lots of little things that bother me. All the seaports being reused assets for instance. Dub voices. Upgrading the shop breaks the game.

I was getting pretty bored with the predictable story until yesterday when suddenly spaceships happened and I had my first "oh shit" moment.

Wrong. It is easy to slap that label on but you have to keep in mind the one big difference.

Xillia 2 only exists because the devs were forced to chop up the game to get it out in one year. Xillia 2 is just overflowing with stuff they wanted to include in the original, plus lots of "apologies" in the form of outfits and accessories and etc.

Toriyama wasn't limited, FFXIII was crazy expensive to make and had a ton of push behind it.

The Tales games are given very short deadlines and Scamco don't care if anything has to be cut. They'll just tell them to make it DLC or make a sequel.

holy shit is this nigga serious?

The difference between this and Batman, is that Batman was always about Batman, and Batman doesn't sell because of sex.

Tales and Final Fantasy were about large casts of characters in many different worlds, and until now no one was picked out as a figurehead.

There were other characters in each game, and they could always make a new universe and new game like they used to, but instead a popular female is being used to sell repeat editions of the game, and the character is popular for moe/sexual reasons.

That's still handwaiving. It wasn't because she had an affinity for femininity or anything, her body was just a vessel for her. Milla is about as pragmatic as a robot.

i wish i could somehow get a PS3 just for those tales games.

>>102265785
I love that they just have random bowls of fruit gels to eat. It was a nice touch.

>>102265934
At least he gave us dual-audio. If anything we should blame the PS2 dev team for locking it at 30fps.
>>
This maybe off topic question or v-related

Will Bamco ever start being lazy fucks and continue to make potentially great awesome games like this should've push to the fucking moon a long time ago
>>
>>102260310
I'm split on that. Can't choose between Lloyd and Reid.

Its a mobile game, you shouldn't be hyping it even if it does get a localization. Tales of Zesty Jalapeno confirmed for worldwide release, get hype

disgusting.
>>
>>102264459
the story was far better than most tales you dipshit, all the other tales are more about friendship and moralfags and in abyss they were blunt about everything
>b-but they were mean to each other
>they didnt friendship
fucking awful taste
>>
>>102260310
>>102260310
Lloyd will always be my number 1
>>
>>102270628
Jamieson Price is good, Laura Bailey sucks
>>
>>102262819

this sounds hilarious

>>102270796
opinion discarded

>>102264578

I like Jude's english voice better
>>
>>102270841
You heard me nigger, the only game where she was good was NIER

Can we all agree Hearts R has the best combat even though some of us won't ever play it?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TM4Np7qoogQ

I actually played it myself but on an iOS which is uncomfortable, so I didn't play it all the way.

>>102270439
Eh, I was okay with them.
>>
>>102270934
Its hit and miss, he actually sounds like a 15 year old kid in JP however.

>not liking her as Dolce in RF4
>not thinking she did great as Rise in P4
>>
>>102270995
I'll agree with you when Baba gets his head out of his ass and localized the fucking thing.
>>
>>102270995

Eh, looks like vesperia's combat except you don't have to worry about keeping your overlimit full. Thats probably a really ignorant opinion though so gimme a rundown on it.
>>
>>102271176
Its a vita game, its never getting localized
>>
>>102271023

but he isnt supposed to be a 15 year old though, niggas in Med School

Viral was a better voice for him
>>
>>102271229
Quiet you. I need hopes and dreams.
>>
>>102271229

nigga almost every vita game is getting localized nowadays just not Tales because Bamco hates money
>>
>>102271247
He is 15 you moron
>>
>>102271229
so it's Sony fault for not releasing very good games in Japan because unnecessary failure and attention to the public

so, Tales of Series is 20 next year on December 2015. Do you see a remake/port in the future? Vesperia for 3DS and maybe a fully blown 3D title of Tales of Phantasia (how many times already?) or perhaps a new Tales game that references every past Tales game to date with a ton of cameos.
>>
>>102271438
Would you prefer a dead fish like Mint would probably be?
>>
>>102271536
I would prefer someone that hadn't sucked the cocks of every human on the continent.
>>
>>102271287
>Tales because Bamco hates money

Bamco is in the same way of Capcom because they are trying and yes you guess it right the COD crowd

They know Tales will not sell well in the US and Europe

so, did Asbel and Cheria fuck?
>>
>>102271690
...so because of COWADOOTY, Japans think that we're all just AMURICA and they dont wanna waste their time sending weaboo shit our way?

...fuck
>>
>>102271785
>think
Have you seen the sales numbers for cowadoody compared to any other game?
>>
>>102271607
And probably a few monsters too.
>>
>>102271757
Eventually. Otherwise the ending wouldn't make sense. Though it was probably just Cheria raping Asbel in his sleep.

the epilogue shows their kid... so yes, yes they did.
>>
>>102271836
Yes, because it has a fucking massive pre-installed fanbase, its ALWAYS going to make the big bucks.
>>
>>102271882
Sounds hot. Got pictures? For, you know, research.
>>
>>102271785
Tales Studio just hates the west. It's the only explanation why NB has no problem localizing stuff like Project Diva but not stuff with far boarder appeal.
>>
>>102271785
Best bet for Bamco sake is to ride out until FPS/Multiplayer dies down and go full retard on releasing everything
>>
>>102272475
>Tales Studio just hates the west

This, Tales fans are obnoxious as ever and think this is the best jrpg ever since Final Fantasy
>>
I don't really care personally. But is this /a/ related somehow?
Some new adaptation I have missed?
