Symphonia completed. It's been a long time, but it's done. It was an alright game. I'd put it as a 6.5-7.5/10. Not quite sure yet.
I think Symphonia laid a solid foundation for 3D tales combat to build on. I thought while it was very simple, it worked. I liked the initial story build up (even though it felt very familiar) and most of the characters had motivations that made sense.
I do think the game was way too easy and that the story felt apart completely in the 2nd half. Once it got serious, it got nonsensical. Some of the pacing choices were very odd and took some of the steam out of the game's momentum (why gather summon spirit fetch quest?!).
And now for more updates, I'm now back on Sylvarant. I gathered nearly all of the Summon Spirits, so I would think I'm getting towards the end. I think the story has suffered a bit, but it's alright.
The other general sidequests are worth it, and you can even get Maxwell as a summon spirit in one quest. They may have also added something new for the PS2/PS3 version.
Another status update. I'm finishing up the Tower of Mana. It's been enjoyable for the most part. Not sure if I'd change its ranking for Tales, but I don't hate it.
Did you get around to playing Xillia 2?
Wasn't a fan of the time limit system when there are a lot of sidequests. I managed to complete most of them, but it was kind of annoying since I like to go at my own pace. My biggest disappointment was that sidequest completion doesn't carry over to NG+. I unlocked the 14th day dungeon, but I couldn't reach the endboss since it was tough on Normal and time was running out. If I wanted another stab at the dungeon, I'd have to do most of the quests over again, which I really didn't feel like doing, so not long after starting NG+ I gave up.
That said, the side quests are able to done again so that your stats can continue to rise.
I don't mind that they give you an option to do the sidequests again, I just wish you could carry over the completion of the quests you already did. Like they could add another quest menu to NG+...have a list of every unique quest you completed carried over along every playthrough, and have another menu set for quests you initiate again, and list them there. They could delete that list every time you do another NG+. The Day 14 unlock would depend on the former menu.
And no, I don't play games on Easy!
The quests took me too long to do tbh. Not in the mood to do them anything.
So, I've put in over 3 hours in Symphonia over the weekend. I guess I took your statement as a challenge accepted.
ToS has a ton of missables if you're not looking at a guide.

Ka-pi96 said:Hmm, just hope with all the recent announcments they haven't all blown their load early... They could literally announce no new games and I'd be happy with what we have now. There are too many games I want as is. As a result there isn't really anything I want announced... Besides new info on the PS4 JRPGs, I mainly want a solidified release for Persona 5 and a trailer...
Volterra_90 said:I played the first episode, and I like some aspects of it, but dislike the american high-school setting. Are the next episodes more focused on the main story (the girl dissapearance) or in the character popularity, which I didn't care about? XDD Yes the plot advances a lot, although episode 5 is going to have to answer nearly everything since there's been a lot of...
This game seems to have slipped me by until recently. It's a really good episodic game (downloadable) with an engaging story, a great cast of characters (Max and Chloe are my two favorite female characters ever), and an awesome indie soundtrack. I also think the game looks pretty nice on PS4. 4 out of 5 episodes have been...
