    Needs more Alicia.

    • Zuhri69

      I really hope that Alicia is likable. I mean, I can’t dig her design, that’s for sure. So, I really hope that there’s something in Alicia that I would love.

  • Pyrofrost

    I’m ready for some more character reveals. Hopefully they keep the party cap to 6 members though.

    • fyi1191

      the more the merrier. But I hope we got 7+1 members and a member like Repede.

      • Pyrofrost

        I don’t exactly mind bigger groups; but when it’s up to say Vesperia (PS3) or Xillia 2, there are characters who end up seeing absolutely no use from me (or minimal use, such as a forced party). This is mainly due to how I play personally though, I pretty much gravitate towards a group of characters and use only them.

        Another Repede type character would be awesome though :3

    • Zuhri69

      Well, if the characters are enjoyable like abyss, I don;t mind. I love Tales of the abyss, I really do.

      • Pyrofrost

        Oh, it will be above average at worst, I assure you. Tales is one of the few franchises in existence, that I can say I love every last entry (talking mothership titles, of course).

        • Zuhri69

          Funny thing is, even if their characters are anime archetypes, I found them to be quite charming. I mean, before this people always tell me that Leia for ToX is their favourite character and just like the asshole I am, I quickly assume that it is due to her moe nature. But then, when I played it, I grew to love her, she’s quite charming in her own right.

          (Although, I can’t grow to like Milla and I don’t really understand people’s fascination of her. Oh well)

          • Pyrofrost

            That’s one of the things I really like about Tales. It’s one of the few games franchises out their, that actually make me feel like I am playing through an anime.

            A lot of JRPGs (as I am a JRPG fanatic) try to reach for that, but don’t quite hit that mark. However, Tales manages to nail it, spot on.

            People were crazy about Milla because of her body and the fact that she was scantly clad, that’s primarily it. (Truth be told, Milla is Stahn designed as a female, and Jude is Rutee designed as a male. That’s how I always saw those two.)
            As far as Leia, I like her in Xillia, but grew to like her much more in Xillia 2.

            My favorite characters were Alvin and Rowan. If I were to start picking out waifus, I would likely say Presa and Argia. Oh and Muzét, there is something I just LOVE about her <3

            This is kinda like my feelings for Abyss though. I wasn't really drawn to any women in the group; but Legretta, mmmmm~

          • Blarg

            I always liked Milla because of how headstrong and bad ass she appeared. I mean the most wowing thing to me was how she still managed to save her friends despite being in extreme pain over her leg injury. That, and almost assassinating the king whilst blowing her legs off.

  • XXX

    PS3 still pumping out quality graphics :)

  • KingNigma

    The environment reminds me of SotC. Looks great.

    • Zuhri69

      SotC, as in Shadow of the Colossus? Huh, now that you mention it…. it does.

      • KingNigma

        Shadow of the Colossus yeah. It had a really cool atmosphere, that game and Ico.

        • Zuhri69

          At least they manage to nail down the architecture, which looks awesome by the way.

  • talesoffan

    Game of the forever right here. Loving the archeology aspect.

  • badmoogle

    This has the best art direction of any Tales game i’ve seen IMO.The only thing i don’t like (which applies to every other Tales game as well) are the coats. :s
