It plays like classic JRPG except in battle which is real-time action-driven with the ability to pause things for certain commands. It's focused on special-moves and combos, a little like a fighting game.



Woe unto he who tries to be helpful, for upon him shall be lain the burdens of all.

Crono can cross dimensions too!



Tales games (in my general opinion) have the best ARPG battle system out there.  Abyss or Vesperia is the best place to start IMO.



Currently Playing: Dark Cloud 2: 3 hours.
Also Playing: CT, FF VI, Solatorobo, Secret of Mana, Halo 4.
Just Finished: Fable II: 7 hours.

So, who did you guys pick as your starting character?

I decided to go with Jude.  I just like the idea that my main protagonist is a medical student that punches people.

30 hours in and I thought I knew where the plot was headed and then it suddenly takes a massive turn for the WTF?!?! I thought I knew who the main villain was going to be. Now I have no idea. I thought I knew where the plot was going, now I have no clue. Damn did they upend things well. And with superb anime cut-scenes no less. I am officially intrigued.

Rowen just joined my party.  I'm still so early in the game. :(  Loving it though!



Been playing it on hard for extra money/xp.  Have Weapon shop at lvl 30, Armor at 22, item at 16, and the other two at 1.  Wondering if I should start leveling acc and food stores.

LOVE that you can switch characters mid battle like in FFX.

I'm at the part where Milla got her legs blown off.  Damn, man.


Howie, you're really powering it through, aren't you?

Yeah. Moving next week. I have a couple light projects and some packing to do, but otherwise I have gads of free time.

Just got Milla's legs back.  Yay!  And Leia is really pushing the childhood friend shipping angle.  Though it appears that Milla knows what's really going on here.  Look, her research actually proves useful for once!


I've only suffered one game over so far, and that's mostly due to my own stupidity of going into an area that I was vastly underleveled and unprepared for, because I wasn't ready to go to that area yet.  Boo.

This is not one of the harder Tales games by any stretch. Graces was much harder. The battle system's more fun though. If I want a challenge, I have SMT IV.

Yeah, saying that SMT IV is a challenge is underselling it, wouldn't you say?
