    I wouldn’t say Ritcher is an [edited out due to potential spoilers] due to *insert spoilers here.*

      I never played DotNW. Wikis should probably not open a chara description with spoilers.

        Tell me about it. Wiki ruined Tale of the Abyss’ Luke for me >_>

          That.. that really sucks.
          I can relate.

          I remember when the original Graces had been released over in Japan, that I was looking at a few videos online.

          And perhaps I had my guard down, as I stumbled across a video of someone demonstrating some of the moves from the game – a pretty interesting clip. Anyway, in that video they just shouted point blank who/what the end boss of the game was.

          I learnt my lesson, and that is – stay far away from entering online the name of a game you might play in the future.

          Unfortunately, it’s ruined it – I mean, I haven’t had any desire to play Graces F, and I’m not sure I ever will. Some people don’t think at all, or are just careless.

            Aw, but Graces ƒ is fun. Gameplay is so boss. Even for that it’s worth playing… that’s my favorite part personally. Still need to beat the future arc. ):

            YouTube ruined Xillia’s final boss for me…

            • Ladius

              Ouch, that’s far worse than Graces, one could make lots of wrong guesses without knowing why things ended like that.

          • Ladius

            I don’t know if it helps, but knowing Graces’ final boss (or the one in the Future Arc, for that matter) isn’t a game-breaking issue, not even for the game’s narrative since its best parts are linked to the character interactions more than to the plot itself, and even then knowing the boss’ identity without its context is pretty meaningless.

            I went into Graces knowing the premises of the Future Arc thanks to Playasia, which is a far bigger spoiler, and I still really enjoyed the game. As others mentioned. it has a fantastic battle system.

          Same here :(

    Tales of symphonia = somewhat a little bit of effort on it, Tales of symphonia 2 = No effort at all, urgh i’ll only get this for tales of symphonia, since I already have tales of symphonia 2 Pal, which has everything this has -.-

    Man, he is a good character.

    The story of DotNW is pretty one-dimensional and short, but what’s in there is pretty good.

    It took me a second playthrough and a number of sidequests before I really appreciated the character development of Richter.

    Richter is so cool and badass!
