Eternia and Rebirth's character designs were done by.. uh... *looks it up* Mutsumi Inomata. Radiant Mythology looks like it may have another new artist too (the new characters anyway.) judging by the art style.
http://namco-ch.net/radiantmythology...cter/index.php Bwah, Kanonno. o_O Such a cute design.
Beautiful... *.* (okay, not so when it comes to the graphics outside the battle system. But the battle system... its to DIE for...)
Tales of Destiny remake for the PS2! Oh dear God in heaven... if you love me in any way, you will bring this over to America *.* full... voice... over!!
This is what turned me on to the Tales series. I would trully love to relive it with the new feel it is certain to have.
Okay, 20 hours in and I still do not like Luke in ToA. He emos all over my TV screen D:
Jade, however, is sarcastic goodness and Guy is completely wonderful because he cracks me up with his gynophobia
Spoiler for like.. 12+ hours in?
In reply to Rika, yes. *kills said person*
Mieu is love. Seriously. He is soooo awesome. XD Emo Luke is really starting to annoy me.
Spoiler for those who aren't at the snowy mountain level?
Jade is as amusing as ever, and the Grand Chokmah music is addicting.
Spoiler for those who have not gone to that lava mountain the 2nd time:
Okay I'm done for now.
Well...I beat Tales of the Abyss. XD It makes me sad though, because I had NO CLUE the ending was coming. I had planned to go and do the side-quests and all that fun stuff before beating it, but then I found myself watching the ending credits. T____T This game went by way too fast. T___T Can't wait to play it again, though!! Loved it~♥
First off, I'd like to say that the Tales of series is awesome and Tales of the Abyss is one of its highest acchievements. Second of all, I'd like to say that Jade Curtiss is so many levels of awesome that it's ridiculous. Thirdly, I'd like to say that a seven hit normal combo plus Rending Thrust into Light Spear Cannon into Rending Quake is oh so much fun. Finally, on the subject of a certain someone's death:
Tales of Destiny: Remake has launched in Japan. Yet we have a very little chance of ever seeing it on our shores. Due to the fact the first one wasnt that well known; but most of all, its not totally 3-D. Its more sprite based. And SCEA has policies against using sprites in modern games (apparently outside Japan *rolls eyes) and Namco refuses to stop using sprites. But ToD does rival ToD2(the real one, not ToE renamed) as the fastest paced battle system in the Tales of series. Which is simply beautiful because I love how cool the battles look when you're flying all over the placing! Especially getting combos while two or more of your characters are juggling an enemy in the air XD
Tales of Eternia for the PSP was released quite a while ago in Europe only (I thought it was. But wasnt sure until i actually bothered to look it up). And its basically the North American version just with the actual name. This is most likely due to the fact it also didnt fair that well in America AND Europe never got it the first time around. But you can import it if you have a PSP with anything higher than a 2.5 whatever upgrade (and they have a 3.00 out) and it'll play fine (anything under 2.5 has a glitch when you fight Volt).
But still no news on ToD2 and ToP: Full Voice Edition for the PSP. Which probably stand the best chances of coming to America due to the fact the PSP is a handheld and they known to have more spritish ones (unless SCEA has anything to say about it... which i will kill them for if they speak up...).
But for now... I have left to wait for... is the action figures ;_;
I like immature bitchy Luke the best xD;!!!
Oh, and if you guys ever replay the game, wear either one of the costumes where Luke's hair is short or when he's in his swimsuit at the beginning. Hilarity ensues with the scene with Guy in Luke's room xD;!
Guy: What's with your hair?
Luke: IT'S IN STYLE!!!!!! I gotta keep up with the fads, y'know.
P.S. If that ToW doesnt come to English, I will KILL.

Oh, my God! I FOUND HEAVEN! =D I LOVE the Tales series!!!
Unfortunately, I only have Symphonia, Legendia, and Abyss...=( (I refuse to buy Phantasia because of what I heard of it >< Blargh)
Let's see. Where to start.... =O
Symphonia: The first game I've ever played for Tales. ^__^ I remember reading my Nintendo Power and seeing an ad for it and going "OH MY GOD DIFFERENT ENDINGS ANIME CUTSCENES, ETC?! THIS IS GONNA ROCK!!" So, being my stupid 13 year old self, I bought the game the next day. XD Well, I *was* stupid back then! D: Anyway, when I started playing, I remember how the battle system confused me because I never actually played an RPG before. o_o; But I got used to it.
I remember how, looking back, the beginning of the game looked so different to how I see it now. O__o; It's kind of weird, because that used to happen with other games. (ESPECIALLY OoT) It doesn't happen now. Anyway, I was starting to get bored sometime around Palmacosta. Plus the fact that Magnius was owning me, so I had to go back down and fight thousands of Desians over and over. INFERIOR BEINGS, INFERIOR BEINGS, INFER--SHUT UP!!! So I owned him soon enough. =3
Then that huuuuge plot twist. =D Things were starting to get good and I was starting to get really into the game. It was so fun, and...well. =( I was sad that it ended. *my heart sunk. D:* Symphonia was the first thing that got me into RPGs, and I LOVE it for that. I've beaten it about maybe 5-7 times now. Maybe 8. Lost count. ;-;
Soooo~ FAVORITE CHARACTERS! They are...Colette, Yggdrasill, Yuan, and Zelos. =O I love everyone else too. No hate in this game~
As for the other two...I'll explain them in later posts. X___X; But I'll say that I actually liked Legendia, and that Shirley never bothered me. Infact, I found her to be interesting. *prepares to be shot* O____O;;;;
Besides that, I had about a million games come out at the same time. So from Around April to October, I had: Grandia III, Wild Arms 4, Tales of Legendia, Kingdom Hearts 2, FFVII: DoC, Xenosaga 3, Disgaea 2, Valkyrie Profile 2, Tales of the Abyss, .hack//G.U. and FFXII all come out (several of those, 3 games came out in the same month >< two in particular on the same day!!). Luckily thats all the games I'll be getting for a while... all thats left really is Wild Arms 5, .hack//G.U. 2 and 3 and any Tales of... games that may come out in the mean time. Other than that, PS2 is all dried up, but left me with so many games... i've knocked 5 off that list, and now its back to TotA!!!
And yes, that new ToW game looks beautiful. But it has an even less chance of coming to America than ToD:R. Due to the fact it features characters from tales games that havent come here and probably alot of copy righting issues, who knows?
But right now all that we're missing besides the ToW series is Tales of Rebirth and Tales of Destiny 2. So you'd THINK they would start pouring in more Tales of games. Especially after the success of ToL and TotA. So you never know! If ToD2 comes to America on the PSP, ToW might also come!^^
