    Re: Tales of Series

    opening aside: i enjoy that, while we have reasonably similar opinions on most of the Tales games, you loathe Xillia and it's probably my favorite. *shrug*

    Think we're pretty close to agreement on this one, just you're finding slightly more to enjoy than I am. Again, it's not a bad Tales game, it's just not quite the return to form I hoped. The part...

    Fair! Feel like a lot of the critical variance for this game is going to center on what problematic game design choices you're willing to tolerate. I'm perfectly fine with lacking signposting and...

    All right, here's my 90% done full breakdown of Kena.

    Still think the best way to view this is like a built-from-the-ground-up current-gen tribute to the PS2 platformers of yore, and more the...

    Depends. It breaks very little new ground in gameplay, has a pretty ephemeral story, and isn't very challenging.

    Re: The Wheel of Time (Spoiler Warning)

    Looking back, the good part about WoT was ~80-90% world--still holds up!--and the writing/characters/plot were all fine but pretty middle-of-the-road fantasy. Not sure how that's going to translate...

    Were any of the Trails games announced new offshoots or are they all existing and now-localized?

    Either way, very cool news for Trails fans.
