B-B-B-B-BUMP.
Because this thread is dying, and I don't know why. ;A;
Is it because I'm the only one who's not yet done Abyss??

Anyway, just for the record, I have just cleared Absorption Gate and gotten the team together. This means Sidequests galore. We've already done the Rappig and Spa scenes, and gotten a few extra titles along the way. Just for the record, Luke's Berserker outfit is awesome. I luv it. :3

Anyway, then we dropped by the Coliseum and blew all our items in the Exhibition match. I'm pissed that we did it on normal mode though, so I wanna go back sometime to do it on Hard. I wanna see Reid's femmy cut-in. XD
And we've cleared Advanced Mode Singles for Luke, Guy, and :snort: Natalia. It was hilarious as Natalia, really.

Discuss! Revitalize! XC

I'm still trying to finish this game. I've got about 90 hours on it now, seems like it will never end. I spend most of time playing poker in the casino. 2.5 million for a prize..... this will take a while.

Wow, really? Yeah, it seems that my one friend's estimatin of 40 hours was a little speedy... I'm not sure how she managed to beat the game in 40 hours first time around, but I'm currently around 50 hours or so and just past Absorption Gate.

...But no way I'm blowing my money on the casino. That place terrifies me. 8O; 300 gald for a chip?? NO! ;A; <---Spams her gald on better and better weapons every time she goes to big city/new city
XD;

I've got the best weapons already for Luke though now thanks to Coliseum, so maybe we'll actually learn to save a few gald somewhere along the way. XD;

Pft, haha, definitely not. I haven't touched TOA since that one day months ago where I played for about 30 mins and turned it off. I don't know. I wasn't terribly impressed by it, and I'm not exactly motivated to play since major portions of the plot have already been spoiled for me - I first got an inkling ages ago during the summer when I was dicking around on Namco's JP TOA site, and my suspicions have long since been confirmed by some of the people on this board, haha. :\

I can't concentrate on playing a single game anymore - I've been hopping from Kingdom Hearts 2 to Makai Kingdom to Dragon Shadow Spell to Ragnarok Online - which, due to its MMO nature, has been far more addicting than any of the console games I've been playing. I'm totally gone, lol.

Perhaps one day I'll play TOA again. I dunno. The 30 mins I got in doesn't exactly make me feel the hype's been worth it. :\

Aww, no, Fayore!!
Abyss DID start out boring, I won't deny that. I wasn't too impressed by the cheagle woods and all either, but trust me, things got really good!
...About after a certain main character hacks off his hair and goes emo, things get good. Really. 8D;

But yeah, in the beginning, it was a slight bit of a letdown, but it soon becomes up to par. Seriously, around 10-20 hours before where I am, when you finally learn how to PROPERLY use those darn FOFs... it becomes insanely fun. 8D I love the battling system, I do. (Once you've got enough AD skills unlocked)

I'm stubbornly refusing to be spoiled by everything. ...Okay, I already know the general gist of a lot of things in Abyss before having reached such of a point (My friend spoiled me, augh), but for the most part, I did still discover most of the things in Abyss on my own. Ow, I feel dumb playing bits from the beginning again, seeing how strong the innuendos were. lol.

But! It DOES have a lot of hype, and most of it's for a good reason. The hype is indeed a little excessive, but it's still an awesome game.
Playplay! 8O

Technically 40 hours is possible but I like to waste my time a lot. I was actually playing for about three hours last night and my game froze on me, and I didn't save it. Crying or Very sad Things like that make me not want to go back to a game.

I know how that feels. We were training in Symphonia once, racking up exp and gald on the dragon in the earth temple, and also trying to get all the item boxes in that earthquake-drop-down-on-the-shelves thing.
...We got stuck.

I was unbelieveably pissed.


Oh, briefly wondering. Has anyone here taken on Coliseum Advanced Team battle for the Exhibition match, on HARD mode, AND survived??? If so, what level would you suggest?? I'm currently getting slaughtered again and again. 8D;
We're on level 66 now, and still got creamed. Using Luke, Guy, Anise, and Tear.
Managed to take out Philia Phillis ONCE, using all four chars (human btw XD) and ALL 16 life bottles.
...Then Mint goes off and casts resurrection.
We cried. D:

What level?? We've already got Coliseum advanced singles weapons and titles for everybody but Jade and Tear...


...Reid is adorable. But brutal. D;

I'd say they left all the necessary parts right where they're supposed to be. Cool

True. But I don't feel like it's a decent Sheena until I see those boots. >>;

Namco just announced their new game, Tales of Endlessia.

I guess it's about time they completely ran the franchise into the ground. THOUGH I WILL GIVE THEM PROPS FOR LASTING A FEW GAMES LONGER THAN THE FINAL FANTASY SERIES.

I heard that a new Tales game was coming. As far as I knew though the title hadn't been announced but Endlessia sounds intriguing.

They announced it almost right after the release of the Remake Tales of Destiny for the PS2. I'm just incredibly pessimisistic towards the series after Abyss and the five hundred handhelds, not to mention the title Endlessia sounds like they're just pulling things out of their asses to prolong the lifespan of the series.

THOUGH I DEFINETLY HOPE I'M WRONG, because I want that ToD remake to come overseas.

Ah, okay then, no official word of things. Good. We can hope. XD;
Geez, some tales fangirls are starting to bother me. (ignores possible/blatant hypocrisy in said statement)
I mean, this one girl runs off, buys the game, beats it in two weeks or so, skipping all sidequests...
And she doesn't stop bothering me about spoilders. She says one more thing, I swear to god... >C
And, she obsesses over Asch. Just for the record, I don't. I obsess over AschLuke, but Luke is definately better, on his own.

But, anyway. Tales fangirls are starting to become a bane. o_o;
I'd love for a toD remake, and I've heard good things about it.
Um, what was that one other thing about that girl, Chloe, from Legendia, getting her own game or something?? I'm confused. 8D;

So many tales games, so hard to keep track of! XD;

Oh, by the way. For a pitiable little fool like me, I was wondering; just how good is Phantasia? I've always wanted to buy it, but I don't have a handheld GBA of my own, though I suppose I could borrow my bro's, if he can still find it... >>; Anyway, how's the game? Battle?
I'm slow, I know. Sorry. >>;

I was watching X-Play and they reviewed Tales of Phantasia. They said the game was generic, the music was okay, and the graphics was like back in the 1990s. Bad, overall.

Tales of Endlessia? Heheh, it sounds funny.

***spoilers****
So I just finished Abyss tonight and it was pretty sad. I'm a little confused by the ending. Was Luke a ghost or had he just been away for a while? Was he in the planet's core? Great ending though.

??? shiina (or shihna) is a real japanese name. o__o;; That is her name. localization is hilarious.


endlessia sounds absolutely retarded (though this is certainly judging from the title alone), and

x-play is retarded. top is back from the '90s. 8l That game is like the mother of all rpg cliches. Though I assume they're talking about the GBA release and not having played that version, I can't really comment. Though I'd have to call them liars if they are, seeing as I've at least dabbled in a lot of so-called "classic" games. :V

Keh, my bad. Wait, so has anyone even played Phantasia here? o_o;
Meep, it's also getting quite hard to navigate around this topic without being violently mauled by spoilers!! ;o; (No, I haven't beaten Abyss yet. I'm stubbornly sitting around and training up until I can take on Exhibition on Hard Mode and NOT get creamed. >>; )

Briefly wondering, is GRADE expensive in Abyss? We're racking up from 2-7 grade a battle with our FOF chaining (meheheh) and Mystic Artes, but I'm just hoping we'll have plenty enough for carrying over a lot of things for next game. AD Skills zohmygod~
Anise's abilities are insanely unfair. (Her AD skills, I mean.) Did anyone else get that thing where she gradually heals back half HP from damage?? It's insane. 8O;

I'm not taking off any major points on simply the title, 'Endlessia.' I guess it's hard, running out of names for the series... As long as it's good! As long as it's good! ::crosses fingers::
