Nothing! He's done some pretty fantastic songs, just...yeaaah. You gotta watch the opening sequence of events for yourself. It's like Lion King meets Tarzan with Merida from Brave as the protagonist. That's the best way I can think of to describe it. xD

I do love how some of the party comment on her clothing, though. I don't think Magilou is in any position to criticise when she wears books for a belt (did you see the skit where Laphi asked about their content? xD) but even so...yeeeah.
Jade's deadpan voice and general apathy make him surprisingly likeable...although considering he's surrounded by children who are varying degrees of irritating, that's none too surprising. Poor guy is stuck in hell. Dist I just loved for his VA and his highly out-of-place flying chair. xD

Going for the plat, or just replaying? I sometimes think about platting the trilogy again, and XIII-2 is definitely my favourite of the three...it's the only one with a protagonist with a personality in it, and an actual villain. Not as bad as some people make it out to be, anyway.
I...don't remember Phoenix. Maybe I blocked it out from my memory...or never fought it. I can't believe its been almost a year now since Berseria was released...

They should have made some of the joke endings canon and made a third game based off them instead.

You did! I'd given up and left it unfinished for months and you told me I could do it. So I tried again and I did!
I'd actually started grinding post-game but I got bored of killing them giant turtles with Vanille's Death spell.


How have they not just gone ahead and released Triple Triad with micro-transactions where you can buy card packs.

Yeah... I want to give it a fair shot, and it was cheap, so I figured I might as well.

...But not until after I DQH and finish the Pokemonathon.

Thanks! Look at that ring spin

I'm surprised they haven't already tbh.
I liked XIII-2 the best out of them. I remember when I was stuck on the last boss of XIII for months then went back to it and destroyed it.

That makes perfect sense. Takes me longer to type more too! xD

HZD is wonderful once it gets past the very Disney-esque opening (the only way it could get MORE Disney would be to have Aloy burst out into song...or have a Phil Collins track in it, in fact) and it was one of my favourite games of last year. Let me know how you get on with it if/when you start it :3

Yes! She's much more compelling than Milla, I think...I was so put off by her design when I first saw her. She looks like the terrifying fanfiction-inspired offspring of Jude and Milla. xD
I think I might have liked Luke more if he hadn't of been voiced by Yuri Lowenthal. I have...issues...with his voice. Mmyeah. The rest of Abyss' cast wasn't so bad, although I found Van a bit underwhelming as a villain. The game needed more Dist!

60 should be enough, I would have thought. Have you fought him again yet? :o

Sure :3

Also already dead. ME3's was great because of the continued support and free updates. I wish they'd do a HD collection and then they could revive ME3's multiplayer.

Not that I'd probably have to try very hard to get it to glitch out.

Replaying the 13 games? That's another series that needs a HD collection.

Was the multiplayer at least ok or did they destroy that too? not that it's probably even active anymore

It would probably be a lot of me swearing at the game while trying to get it to glitch on purpose tbh

I can't believe they could make a game with jump jets terrible

The only way I can see I could possibly get through it is making a twitch account purely to share my suffering. It would be called a "sufferthrough" instead of a "playthrough"

I hope it didn't ask me to set an account up when I first got my 3DS because if it did I don't remember it.

He only likes games that lets you shoot things so as long as Andromeda had guns in it he'd probably like it.

Andromeda or Dissidia? I tried the Dissidia beta and it was a huge mess. The camera gets stuck in the air or against walls and changing targets doesn't work half the time. It was awful.
I don't think I want to touch Andromeda.

Well...maybe if I don't go over the character limit for messages. xD

I didn't do most of Berseria's sidequests, as I was distracted by Horizon at the time and I knew I was going to come back and plat it eventually...eventually.

Yeah, Velvet has genuine character progression, which is nice. Much as I like Lloyd he never really changed from who he was in the beginning. I think the less said about Luke, Asbel, and Sorey, the better. Tales games have always been more about party interaction to me so having strong individual characters is refreshing!

Yeaaaaah...there's the whole "Zestiria is awful!" issue to work around. Berseria is a good game, but its not a miracle worker. "Tolerable" does not equate to "good" or "worth experiencing". xD

You can do it! Just overlevel and destroy him! I forget what level I was in the end, actually...

Ooooh, I completely forgot getting it digitally like that was a thing! I've never bought anything digital on a handheld before.

He said he played some of it and "it's not that bad" - help

I was expecting something with a story mode but this just looks like they're trying to cash in on the esports craze with it

I was expecting like £15 for it new, but it's more like £30-40 for it used.

He had to be trolling me, I told him what I thought of it and that I had no interest in it when it came out.

Are you getting Final Fantasy Dissidia at the end of the month? I was going to get it but I've been watching some videos of the Japanese version and it looks like it's more a focus on online versus so now I'm not sure.
I think there's a beta for it tomorrow?

To be fair, I was about halfway through Super Mario Odyssey when the year switched over.

Hope the rest of the journey goes well! I'm excited to hear what you think of the ending!

Because you know that's what I'd end up doing with them anyway

No I can only find it pre-owned for ridiculous prices. Is the 3DS region free? Might work out cheaper to import in the end.

Thanks my brother got me mass effect andromeda

No problem!

DO IT! The side-quests are fun and will boost you to where it's not too bad, though I remember the final boss being a bit of a problem as well. I don't remember enough of it to provide any advice, though. ...And I'm planning to be Lv200 when I face him again, so it really shouldn't be a problem at all then.

Oh, I dunno if that's such a terrible answer - they ARE all very good characters, after all! Even Eleanor, who would be painfully cliche and irritating in any other Tales game (I mean, she's basically a female version of Vesperia's Flynn, or Graces' Hubert...or Symphonia's Lloyd, even) but is portrayed as a colossal hypocrite and has her entire set of beliefs and motivations thrown into question and ultimately discarded because of it. I actually wound up liking her a lot by the end of it. xD

Relieved I'm not gonna accidentally spoil anything now if I talk about late/endgame stuff, haha. I mean, Innominat actually being Velvet's Laphicet was pretty shocking I thought, and I love how it effectively broke Velvet and made her entire quest up to that point completely meaningless. Considering how cold and almost mindless she was for the entire game up to that point, it was nice to see her undergo such a dramatic change, too...reminded me a bit of Xenoblade, but I'll say no more there since you have that marked as unfinished. xD

The ending might annoy you a little given the Zestiria connections...well, it annoyed me anyway, haha. Although Eizen's entire character kinda annoyed me considering his form in Zestiria...its kinda upsetting, all things considered, because he's such a likeable character. I dunno if you got this far or managed to, but in Zestiria you can fight Eizen later and kill him - which in one way is kinda touching because you get a scene with Zaveid - although in the anime he survives and actually regains some form of sentience in the end, which is a lot nicer. If you can stand it/feel like it, I'd actually recommend watching the Zestiria anime after you finish Berseria, as it takes Berseria's expansion of events before the game into account and gives a much more satisfying ending. And there's no equipment fusion system to suffer through. xD

I think I know which FAQ you mean...I might have followed that too at some points. Like that accursed temple with the waterfall switches etc. I have never been very good at puzzles...

...sorry, I could ramble about this game all day, easily GOTY 2017 I think, having taken stock of everything else I played that year. Much as I loved revisiting FFXII, and NieR Automata, Berseria reminded me why I keep buying Tales games. Hope you manage to beat the final boss soon!

Dooo iiittt I don't mind!

This is true. What's the point in people debating it when we know it's a fact!

WOW I had no idea this series was so dark, literally encouraging breeding child soldiers. Using the parents just to breed the perfect child to be raised as a warrior wowowow. This sounds like a Yoko Taro game now.

Time for CHAOS. Hopefully the choices aren't super complicated and not something you need a guide for.

I was going to buy it earlier in the year but it was right before Persona 5 was due out.

HAPPY HOLIDAYS BTW. Hope you have a nice time.

It's a pretty surprising game! One thing I absolutely love about it is how it defies the regular Tales character tropes and gives us an original cast for a change; they're all pretty despicable people when you examine them individually but they're so likeable. Who is your favourite? :3

It also makes Zestiria's story better in hindsight I think, which is a pretty incredible accomplishment considering how threadbare and unsatisfying that was. I watched the Zestiria anime after playing Berseria and enjoyed it a lot more because of it, despite it only giving 2 episodes to set some backstory with Berseria scenes.

...plus the plot twists. Don't wanna spoil in case you're not there yet, but yeah. Lemme know what you think of it overall when you finish it! A new Tales title would be nice next year, and I'm kinda hoping they'll release some past ones (not Symphonia, I am not buying that a third time. xD) on the Switch too. I doubt we'll get it next year if it's announced at the Tales Festival though, unless its a simultaneous worldwide release...that'd be nice, but its never happened before so I wouldn't hold my breath for it.

Btw, Merry Christmas~
