Now Playing Tracks

I know there’s no chance in hell it would ever happen, but I keep holding out hope that some day, somehow, a Tales character is going to make it into a Smash Bros. game.

Lloyd Irving would be first choice since he was on the Gamecube, with Yuri Lowell being second just because he’s so damn popular.

And for a while I thought that it was possible, especially with bamco’s involvement in SM4SH. But alas…

Maybe we’ll at least get a Tales of Vs. 2 on home consoles with online multiplayer?

I can dream.

I told myself I wouldn’t

I told myself I wouldn’t get Pokemon diamond or pearl. I did.

I said I wouldn’t get Heart Gold or Soul Silver. I did.

I said I wouldn’t get Black or White or their sequels… and good for me, I didn’t!

But when X and Y came around and I told myself “I definitely shouldn’t get this!” you can bet your sweet ass I got them anyway.

And now the Sapphire and Ruby remakes are coming out and I can’t help but feel extremely conflicted.

I’ve played this game twenty times over, it’s not going to be any different than any other pokemon game… and yet, I loved playing Emerald so much I almost feel obligated to get the remake.

Sometimes, Nintendo… I just really hate you.

I just beat chapter three in Re;Birth and I’m not sure I can take much more of this.

It’s just… I have a pretty hard limit for how much “fanservice” I can take before I start to feel incredibly blasé about the game.

Referential jokes don’t bother me, some childish humor is okay, but this is just an intense amount of homoeroticism that’s really starting to rub me the wrong way.

Don’t think I’ve forgotten about Nep-Nep!

I got a little discouraged when I got beat up real nasty a few times by some non-boss monsters, but it’s my fault for challenging areas I wasn’t ready for.

I’m going to finally start making progress in the story and hopefully finish the game.

I can’t say that I’m devoted to this series, though. That is to say, I’m not particularly hyped about Re;Birth 2 or 3.

POLL OF UNWAVERING CONVICTIONS

The options are simple:

  • I’m getting ONLY 3DS SM4SH, and my conviction is unwavering.
  • I’m getting ONLY Wii U SM4SH, and my conviction is unwavering.
  • I’m getting both, and my conviction is unwavering.
  • I’m definitely getting the 3DS version, may or may not get Wii U
  • I’m definitely getting the Wii U version, may or may not get 3DS
  • Sad option #6 for people who don’t have Wii U consoles and won’t be getting Smash4U

Official strawpoll:

This will help me, PERSONALLY, decide once and for all. It’s a tough decision, you know.

Which Tales game(s) have the best postgame/NG+?

I have Tales of Symphonia, Tales of the Abyss, and Tales of Xillia sitting on NG+ waiting for me to go back to them, listed in the order I finished them.

Alternatively I can emulate the PS2 (I played the 3DS version of Abyss) and play Legendia, use my DS R4 to finish my playthrough of Tales of Innocence (I’m only at the very beginning), or go even further back and play the undub of Eternia on PPSSPP or the translation of Tales of Phantasia PSX.

I don’t intend to play Graces f again (and in fact I sold the game because the future arc left such a tremendously bad taste in my mouth) and I’m playing Xillia 2 with a friend so I can’t play through that just yet. I guess I could play Milla’s story in ToX but so much of it is similar to Jude’s story and I’ve played it so recently I don’t know if I can do it.

I’m also waiting for Tales of Hearts R to come out.

So, any help is appreciated. I listed all the games I have/have access to. All I need is someone to help me make some choices and/or to throw darts at a board for me.

Absolutely never EVER buy an Afterglow controller.

They fall apart extremely easily and don’t stand up well to wear and tear at all.

The lengths to which I will go to attain stupid shit in video games

So I wanted Ludger’s voice and I didn’t want to play all the way through to get it, nor did I want to use somebody else’s save file and go NG+ with their shit.

So I downloaded PS3 Bruteforce Save Data (google it) and added a cheat to allow Ludger’s voice to be on (really it was part of a cheat sheet full of grade shop goodies, but I just want the voice)

So yeah, fuck video games basically. Now if only I could apply my tenacity and vigor from video games in the real world I would actually be getting somewhere with my life.

A link to the full image for anyone having problems

Anyone want to help me make this chart more complete?

edit: I forgot to add Jude Mathis (Tales of Xillia) and Flynn Scifo (Tales of Vesperia) to the image. It must have slipped my mind because bamco never gave us PS3 Vesperia because they hate their western fanbase.

Not enough of an oversight to add to the image, I’d need at least a few more additions.
