500 posts!! I’ll keep going!

Been playing Jak and Daxter Trilogy for Playstation 3. Been playing the first game in the series and I liked it very much, never got/took a chance to play it when it was out for the Playstation2. So I had been looking forward to a HD collection with these games for some time, so I’m glad they where made. When all three games are finished, when that will be… I’ll probably do a proper review for them.

This post also marks my 500th entry on my page! Goddamn, a big number! I’ll be going for another 500 of course! I’m not stopping, I’ll keep on writing as long as I need to. And if people want to read that, then that’s even better. So thanks to all who’s stuck with me.
I really, really hope my copy of Tales of Graces f will arrive by Friday next week… I really want to play that game, right now! Hope I have time to play it too, much to do at work so I’ve been tired as hell when I get home. And I’m preparing for my move to the new apartment too.

Souls! Round 5!

I got my copy of Soul Calibur V today! What luck! When I can start playing games again (will post more about that tomorrow), it must be a sign. Just gonna eat something and then I’m loading this baby up! This is my first purchase in over two months, so I’m looking forward to this. Can’t wait to start making my own characters again. I just love that.

Tales of Vesperia, eat my artes!

Just finished the second RPG of this year, Tales of Vesperia. Sure, I had played most of the game early last year. And finally got around to finish it now, that I had a working Xbox 360 to play it on. And boy I really do love the Tales of series. Probably one of my favorite RPG series right now, if I must be honest.
So I’m really looking forward to the Playstation 3 release of Tales of Graces F now! And speaking of PS3 is it such a shame that Namco Bandai didn’t release an English version of the PS3 version for Tales of Vesperia. I want my KOS-MOS costume on Judith, goddamn it!!
So if I find a Japanese/Asian copy of the game cheap sometime, I’m gonna buy it. Yeah, I’ll buy it for just such a simple reason…

Anyway… I loved this game very much, the characters, music, the world. Just about everything. I think my biggest complaint about the game is the last part of the game and the last boss. I wasn’t feeling any of it, so yeah that might be just me. But I thought that whole part of the game was pretty weak. I had hoped for a tad more. Just to be clear it does in no way make the game any less, fun or good. This is just what I think anyway. And if you have a way to play this game, I can highly recommend it.
Probably one of the best RPG’s I’ve played this generation, if not my favorite so far.

I’m not going to go much deeper into the game than this, experience it for yourself if you can. And I hope you’ll buy future Tales of games, so we can get more of them translated. I’m really crossing my fingers and hoping we can get Tales of Xillia localized in English at some point. Hopefully Tales of Graces F will sell well enough for Namco Bandai, so they’ll consider it…

I’ll be taking a little break from gaming now, there are stuff that I need to do in my life right now. Like study to get better and be able to more on my job. Mostly it’s just that, so sadly that will have to take up all my game time right now. If I was better at studying I could perhaps do both, but as I am right now I want to give 100% focus on my work. Its only for three weeks or some, I can hold on. I can also play some older unfinished games at weekends, so its not like I am taking a whole vaccination from gaming. But when I get back, sometime in the beginning of February I hope to be able to play Soul Calibur V. I’ll still make my posts here as usual.

Date & trailer for Tales of Graces F

We’ve finally gotten a trailer and a date for Tales of Graces F. It was about time for Namco Bandai to release an English trailer, check it out and let me know what you think.

I can’t wait to get my hands on this game! It will be released March 13 2012, this is the US date. Its unsure if the European release date will be the same or if it will arrive here later… Hopefully it will be the same date. Soon… Soon it will be mine!

Six minutes of Tales of Xillia

Here is a six minute long trailer from Tales of Xillia. I’m really hoping Namco Bandai will release this game here in the west also. I’ll do my part by buying Tales of Graces F and Tales of the Abysss for 3DS even though I don’t have a 3DS, but I want to see more Tales of games released in English. And I’ll support the Tales of series by buying the upcoming games. You should too if you like the series, give it a try otherwise.

Tales of Xillia

Namco Bandai has announced is newest Tales of series game, this one will be called
Tales of Xillia. I bet this is another one of those games, that they won’t bother to localize.
But I’m hoping they will surprise us this time, who knows? Miracles can happen, so let’s pray.

The one game I really want…

I should be pretty excited about all the upcoming games and I am. But there is actually one game besides all of the upcoming ones I want even more. I realized that tonight when me and my buddy Kntheking where talking. What could this game be that has me more excited than both White Knight Chronicles & Final Fantasy XIII? The answer to that is Tales of Vesperia. I am a very big fan of the Tales of series and has been since i played Tales of Symphonia on the GameCube.
I’ve been dying to try this game for so long now, but without an Xbox 360, is more or less impossible. And there are no funds in the nearest of months (or even under 2010) to buy anything like that. And as time passes it seems less likely that the Playstation 3 version will be released outside of Japan.

But why am I this hyped for the game? Honestly I can’t answer that, I just have a very strong feeling inside my whole body when I think of this game. It may sound cheesy or strange, but that’s the only way I can put it. The Tales of games have always made me feel better when I’m playing them, there is something there that I just love. With the exception of Tales of Legendia, which I do not like at all.
So just knowing its out there and waiting it actually kinda hurtful… The way and the longing I feel for Tales of Vesperia is something I haven’t felt in a long time.

I won’t put any hope in the PS3 version coming out here, I don’t have the heart to hope for something like that. I’ll just get depressed then. I’m just hoping I’ll be able to get a hold of an X360 version of the game later, so I can play it. They seem to be getting pretty rare… I really do think its amazing you can feel like this over a game, but I can’t help the way I feel. I hope I’ll get to play the game soon and that it will be just as great as I think it is.
