I skipped out on DotNW after the bad press it got. The first chance I'll have to play it will be when the Tales of Symphonia HD collection hits the US next year.

I bought that game when it came out beat it once never touched it again so I sold it. The only thing i liked about that game was Marta she was a decent character and pretty fun to play as she had this neat spinner weapon and learned healing spells. She was basically like Raine just more suited to close combat. Emil on the other hand is the worst Tales character ever, and on top of that hes just another swordsman with standard artes and nothing really of note. He's probably the main reason i really dont play as any strictly melee characters anymore

Trying to finally beat Tales of Xillia but man does it seem like a long game. I guess im just not used to playing JRPG's anymore. Wish I had more time to game everyday so I could actually beat it and move on to some other games I have.

It's not actually as long as Tales of Graces or Tales of Symphonia. In fact, it was criticized by some for being too short. But yeah, if you're pressed for time, it gets tough to keep up with RPGs.

I actually beat it finally. Didn't take quite as long as I thought it would. I just need to get used to playing RPG's again I guess.

I'll start with you guys too. May lag behind with school and reviews in the way, but it sounds like a fun time.

with character development prioritize learning Artes over skills.

as for missable stuff there isnt too much and its really either stuff that expands on the story or gives cosmetic items. Not much in terms of gameplay. Though a trophy is missable if you dont do those missable events. Heres a list of them


http://www.playstationtrophies.org/forum/tales-xillia/207180-sub-events-everything-you-need-know.html

and no armor doesnt change appearance but you can get costumes/add-ons from uests and as DLC. They are seperate from euipment

Just wondering what some of the hard trophies might be. It seems like the sub event one might be the only missable one. Seems like it might be a fairly easy platinum, so if possible I'd like to do it in one play through.

I chose Jude because I typically like playing as guys since I am a guy. Milla seems like an interesting character though, like Kosmos (I believe that was her name) from Xenosaga.

You can't do it in one playthrough it needs two full playthroughs. You need to beat Jude and Milla's stories.

Also i wouldnt recommend maxing out character levels without New Game Plus. 2x/5x XP help a lot with that along with spicy chicken roll items you can buy from a high level food vendor.

Yeah you can wait (it counts side events only in one playthrough it will reset when you do new game+) the side event trophy is actually easier on Jude's side anyway. Jude's has 100 so you can miss 10 (90 for the trophy) while Milla's has only 98

btw it took me 141 hours to plat. Most of the trophies are fairly easy but a few can be grindy. Just be sure to carry over shop levels and get 2x or 5x XP on your second run. The rare monsters one is kind of dumb tho since the spawn rates are stupid low though it carries over through playthroughs

Also, the voice acting and soundtrack sound like Shenmue. Soundtrack is amazing.

Did you get the Collectors' Edition like I did? It comes with a soundtrack CD. I ripped it onto my iPhone. It's not a comprehensive soundtrack, but it does have some of the best tracks from the game. Also, it has a nice statue of Milla.

Right now, I'm playing the 3DS version of Tales of the Abyss. I bought this game new on PS2 in 2006, but it was competing against Final Fantasy XII, Twilight Princess, Okami, and Valkyrie Profile 2 so it got kind of lost in the shuffle. Now that I'm really focusing on it and I've gotten to the point where Luke isn't acting like such a jackwagon I'm really digging it.

I started Abyss on 3DS and was enjoying since I'd never played the PS2 original. Sadly, Bravely Default drops this week so no idea when I'll get back around to it. And then Thief drops the same week as Symphonia.

I just now realized how I lied when I said this year would be slower than last...

Yeah, I have preorder money down on the CE of Bravely Default. I also bought the super deluxe version of Symphonia Chronicles, but nothing's going to tear me away from Symphonia when it lands.

I've played the game for almost 7 hours now. I enjoy the game, but I don't think I do as much as you do. It's fun, but for me it is no Ni No Kuni. Also, coming from that game to this the graphics are really ugly. Doesn't make me not want to play the game, but maybe someone can explain why they're so bad. I think it was made in 2011 but didn't get ported until 2013? Even then, still pretty ugly for being 2 years old.

The combat is fun and I really enjoy the humor from the game. It definitely has some funny one liners.

Xillia was an awesome game, and it edged out Symphonia as my favorite Tales game. It would have been easily my GOTY... if Ni no Kuni hadn't come out. Xillia was fantastic, but Ni no Kuni was just too sublime of an experience to be beaten.

Played some more of this game, and I believe I made it to the town of Sharilton (I think that's the name). When I level up my characters, I pretty much just go around the web in order. Probably not how I should be doing it, but I haven't died in battle yet so I guess that's a good sign.

I'm following the guide trying to complete all the sub events in one play, but I'm pretty pissed that I missed the first three that were missable because I didn't start using the guide until I was out of the first town. So I have to be pretty perfect from here on out.

These are my three favorite things from the game in this order...

1. Humor
2. Characters
3. Story

Would make a great little mini television series in my opinion.

I'm a couple hours into Xillia. Not really sure how much its grabbing me. The combat seems pretty easy. I've just been doing the auto-level on the webs, because it seems like you end up unlocking them all anyway. And like Bret said, I haven't died at all either, so what difference does it make? I'm assuming the game will really pick up soon- like most JRPG's do a couple of hours in. Right now its just a slow burn. But that's usually how I play games like this.

I got Rowen, and he seems like a pretty bad ass character. That old timer can really throw knives really high into the sky. Those puppies were up there for like 30 seconds!

I still haven't got a trophy, and I'm 11 hours in.

Main story trophies take a while to get. Since each chapter is fairly long. Most of the rest of them are for maxing out (X) thing or performing an certain action (X) times. They will take a while to get. You can get the character specific battle trophies without much hassle early on though.

I'm Jude and I have to get Snap Vortex with him, but when I look at abilities it's not in there. Is that something I'll unlock further on in the game?

All of those abilities are available as soon as you get the character

Jude (Snap Pivot): Back step just an enemy is about to hit you with an attack.

Milla (Spirit Shift): Just press the Arte button when casting her spells don't hold it. It'll make a uicker shorter range version of her spells.

Alivin (Charge): Hold down the Arte button when using his artes. His sword will glow blue use an arte while its glowing.

Elize (Teepo Switch): Simply press L3 (taunt) it switches stances making her magic or physical attacks more potent

Rowen (Arte Tuning): Button prompts appear when you use his spells just follow those

Leia (Elongating Staff): It's done exactly like Jude's

and for the support abilities

Jude (Healer): Get knocked down and dont recover manually

Milla (Bind): Trap the enemy between you and her at close range (this is also the easiest way to get the 100 hits trophy)

Alvin (Guard Breaker): Attack an enemy that's guarding

Elize (Teepo Drain): It just happens randomly when you dont have full TP

Rowen (Auto Magic Guard): Get attacked by magic.

Leia (Item Steal): Knock the enemy down and she will try to steal something failed attempts still count towards the trophy.

If you have trouble getting the support ones check the enemy's info and just use the ideal link partner for each one.

Well shit, if I would have known snap pivot was his dodge skill I would have been doing that for a while now. Do you know the number of times you have to do it? I was doing it all the time when it was just me and Milla, but ever since Alvin joined I've been all about all out attack.

Thanks for the info. I'll be dodging tonight.
