Brilliant game, had a blast with it. Very excited for Xillia 2 now, shame it's so far away.

*spoiler about final boss*
Played through the whole game on moderate, and fought the final boss at around level 60-65 or so. Fought them for a good hour, and could not take out Muzet. Her healing is insane, stopping me from killing her or Gauis. I reluctantly turned it down to normal, and it became incredibly easy. Hardest Tales Of final boss to date. Gonna give it another shot once i take the golden knight down.


Hope you guys enjoyed the game as much as me.



I enjoyed it tremendously. I played it on hard and was very surprised/disappointed there was no trophy for it after I spent and hour and twenty five minutes on the final battle. I kept waiting for the "Dude, you beat this shit on HARD!" trophy to pop but it never did LOL

*serious spoilers, you've been warned*
You're right, that was the hardest Tales of final boss ever. So I killed Muzet about 35 minutes or so into it, and I started throwing everything I had at Gauis and then BAM some how she used an arte called Recall I think, and brought herself back to life. They would then go on these two minute spam fests and I could do nothing but watch as my party's life drained away. Very satisfying when I finally beat them though.

It was a great ending, but sort of sad too. Being as they found a solution to all their problems it didn't have to end with Milla staying a spirit. She could of returned as a human, especially after her and Jude basically admitted how they felt at the end when they held hands. It definately has me excited for ToX2, I can't stop wondering about all the possibilities.

CE of Tales of Symphonia Chronicles. I hope it's still available for preorder in a few weeks when I have the cash to cover it.

I think i'll pass on that, I used to own Symphonia way back when, I tried to get into it... just couldnt. I think didnt I like the battle system and world map either for some reason. Also back tracking from Xillia to Symphonia I think i wont like it that much more. Cool its getting a CE though, i'll pick up the Xillia 2 CE for sure.

Damn you're still playing it? lol jk. Talk to the guy in Sharilton, you can trade him feathers for stuff. If you say yes when he asks, it logs the amount of feathers you have, clears your feather inventory and you can start collecting again. You don't have to get stuff right away, you can come back later and he remembers the total you have given him. For some reason they decided to put a limit on how many you can carry at once which was kind of dumb.

Yeah, I kinda figured that they did it that way. 255 is the cap... *grumbles* I thought I was supposed to collect all 459 or whatever it is then give it to him... THOSE BASTARDS LIED TO ME!!!

I so wanna direct-tether with Milla Muzet and Presa. Seems to me they need me to completely empty out my mana lobe for them and fill them with mana ;)

Surprised no ones posted about it yet,

Tales of Zestiria announced! Very excited, and a worldwide release has been confirmed simultaneously with the japanese one, though we'll probably have to wait longer for the localization.

I can remember a few years ago all the pleading that it would take to get these games localized. Times sure have changed, couldn't be happier about it.

Looks in the vein of Xenoblade almost... big open world with a char running around in it. Doesnt look like encounters on the field will go to another combat screen, it might be in real time. This intrigues me.

Yeah saw some videos this morning of it, looks really good. I can't believe we are getting this many Tales games back to back. The PS3 is going out strong with Xillia 2, Chronicles HD, Persona 5 (playing 4 on vita and its so god damn fun) and now Tales of ZestyItalianDressing all being exclusives. From what I've read its supposed the first worldwide release of a Tales game. If sales continue to be strong this might be a turning point for us RPG fans in the US/EU as far as Namco is concerned. At the very least we might not have to worry about them getting localized or not any more.

The real question, can they make it as good as Xillia? Tales series has been known for having one good game followed by a bad then a good then a bad, and from what I have heard it flip flops. Xillia is the only Tales game I ever beat so I cant really comment myself. I want to go back and finish Eternia on PSP sometime soon, it seemed awesome.

I personally like every game in the series, some more than others of course. With a series like this it's really personal preference.

Yeah man, it's awesome. All of the games you listed would be big reasons for me to get a PS4, and i'm more than happy to stick with the PS3. Saves me the money of buying a new console.
