    It's a shame an english release of ToX takes them longer than to make a sequel.

    Not really, ToX 1 was a total fail, rather you should hope that ToX2 is localized sooner.

    Simply put, if Tox 1 was total fail, they definitely won't bother making Tox 2. This isn't Square Enix we're talking bout, where the sequel is made to boost the original's popularity and fame, and hopefully get more sales on the prequel.(FF XIII, FF XIII-2)

    @01:01 I don't know about that guy, but I completed it and it was fantastic. It's definitely my favorite game in the Tales series.

    ToX 2 is basically the completed version of the rushed, unfinished Xillia 1, this time with a worthy story, not like it's predecessor.

    Some people bitch about it being 'rushed' but I found ToX 1 to be an incredible game.

    Haters gonna hate.

    You have awhile. We're getting the first game early next year if it does well then we get the 2nd one. Tales of Graces f was released just this year and that came out in Japan in 2009/2010.

    I never bothered to search for when we'll be getting the first one, thanks for the heads up.

    Is this game supposed to look like it belongs on a PS2? Or is it a PSP game? Because I'm not impressed with those graphics.

    I love RPGs and graphics usually don't need to wow me in that genre, but I expect at least the average level of a current console, especially this far into their 'life-spans'.

    Expect zero effort PSvita release in 6 months. Looks like they wont have to downscale anything.

    Zero effort? What the fuck are you smoking? They actually put a lot of work into their ports... You've see how drastically they've been upgrading the Tales of Hearts R port, right?

    I think you need to go back and look at some actual PS2 games, because you've forgotten just how jaggy and blurry the last generation was.

    Beyond that, what's so bad about these graphics? They look pretty damn good to me.

    Take a look at Tokitowa´s visuals and then at this shit,you´ll notice the difference believe me.

    Its not made by western devs so don't expect much graphics wise.

    You'd think that Bandai Namco, having made iM@S2, could do better with the character models in an animu game. It's unfortunate, really.

    "It's a really fun game. The gameplay is well thought out. It'll keep me occupied for hours... but it doesn't looks like Call of Gears VI. I much rather play a cookie cutter game than this because they look better."

    I'm not necessarily saying this is true about this game specifically, but this is what's wrong with 'gamers' now.

    What's wrong with 'gamers' now is their inability to read and comprehend. Or did you miss the part about "I love RPGs and graphics usually don't need to wow me in that genre"? FYI, I still play PSOne JRPGS, so drop the 'I'm an old-school fan' bullshit.

    This does not look like a PS3 game. It looks like a PS2 game with better resolution. And I'm vastly amused that you actually pulled the "cookie cutter game" line when talking about a JRPG. The sheer unintentional irony is overwhelming.

    Looking again, I honestly think Xenosaga Episode 3 looks at least as good, if not slightly better; setting aside edge resolution issues.

    I'm not saying it's a bad game, it just looks dated. If it's fun to play, I'll happily play it.

    "Allow me to use this old argument because I can't really think of a way to defend this game from criticism it deserves"

    You know what's the problem with this game? That the devs didn't put effort into the visuals, knowing that fanservice and it being part of the Tales franchise will return massive profits anyway (and it did).

    If it's on the PS3, we expect it to look like a PS3 game if it's not a port. ESPECIALLY that it's a 2012 game AND budget spent on making it look as good as possible would not go to waste.

    Oh, and FYI, gamers in the past also cared greatly about the graphics games had, I remember I'd often compare games with friends based on how they look instead of gameplay quality. Today's gamers don't seem to remember the past, graphics mattered then as much as they matter now.

    So, you and your friends were shallow gamers that didn't give a fuck about a game's quality back then. And that's your argument for judging games today?

    @19:48 - Because good graphics and good gameplay can't exist together in the same game, right?

    I'd also prefer the games to look dated but be brilliant in any other aspect IF you could have either good graphics or good gameplay, but surprise, surprise, you can actually have both!

    There are countless examples of games (not limited to the PS3/360) that look great and play great. Namco are experienced devs and have been around for years, it's not too much to expect them to put more effort into presentation of one of their biggest franchises.

    Just because an argument is 'old' or has been used before doesn't mean it isn't a good argument. I would rather the Devs put in time to the gameplay. And as I said I don't necessarily mean this game (I myself am not a Tales fan). I would rather games be stuck at PS2 level graphics and be good games than having them look lifelike and be shitty.

    Graphics were always important, as was music, as was gameplay. If you were to look at good games from old consoles, they also tend to be games that excel visually. Think of games like Super Mario Bros 3, Contra, Battletoads, Super Mario World, the SNES FF titles, Street Fighter 2... The list goes on and on. The effort put into visual aspects doesn't guarantee a good game, and certainly a game with poor visuals can succeed in other aspects, but graphics do give a reflection of the overall effort put into the game.

    @20:05 Yes, but good graphics does not mean good gameplay. Are you implying I said you couldn't have both...? I'm just stating gameplay is infinity more important. This thread was in reply to someone judging the game upon it's look.

    It's cell shading, there's a limit to how detailed it will look due to the artistic style.

    The PS3 is 6 years old, what did you expect? Hopefully we'll get the PS4 soon (which is probably next year).

    That was the point it doesn't look like a 6 year in PS3 game it looks like a mid life PS2 game.

    I enjoyed Neptunia too, at least the girls were graphically good, but the rest of the world was more like PS1 level.

    I'm fine with a last gen game just don't box it and ship it for a current gen game price. Not to mention Tales games seem to be the same game with a different coat of paint just a bit of a rip off.

    Are you fucking retarded?! The game's been fantastic so far. Xillia was already great, but this sequel is even better.
