Otaku Rage over PS3 Tales Betrayal


Even as PS3 owners have been celebrating the much anticipated release of Tales of Vesperia for the PS3, some Xbox 360 owning otaku have been infuriated by the “exclusive” nature of their release, and have resorted to typically extravagant displays of outrage.

Above you see their disc breaking and magazine burning… A possible case of overreaction?

Happy news for Tales fans arrives in the form of confirmation that Xbox 360 “exclusive” Tales of Vesperia, the latest of Namco’s home console “mothership” titles, is to be adapted into a theatrical anime, to be released in 2009.

Other details are scarce, but given the quality of recent Tales anime we might be well served by this.

Japan: 3D Tales of Hearts Do Not Want

2D vs 3D CG – Tales of Hearts

The unusual decision to release the latest Tales RPG “Tales of Hearts” in two versions with drastically differing visual styles in the movies and packaging, one based on 3D computer graphics ala Final Fantasy, the other on classic Tales anime visuals, turned heads when it first came to light, particularly given the dubious choice of character designs in the 3D version.

Turned heads, much as a grisly traffic accident does. It does not seem the 3D version is selling well in Japan; second-hand sales reveal the 2D version is selling for 30% more than the 3D version. Some take this as a sign of the ill-advised nature of the  scheme…

Tails of Fail


Famitsu seem to have it in for the Tales series – whilst they have frequently featured the games on their covers, the artist they retain to provide these illustrations leaves much to be desired in a number of areas…

Their new Tales of Hearts cover is but the latest in a long line of such covers:

Tales of the Abyss Anime Sublime

It was with pleasant surprise that I formed my initial, highly favourable, impressions of the Tales of the Abyss anime adaptation, and now after seeing three such episodes of superb quality, I’d like to take the opportunity to recommend the anime unreservedly.

Tales of the Abyss Anime Astounds

Being a huge fan of the PS2 science fantasy RPG upon which this anime is based, I was apprehensive about the Tales of the Abyss adaptation, thinking it could well suffer a mediocre remake. However, I am delighted to say the anime is already shaping up to be one of astonishing quality.

2D vs 3D CG – Tales of Hearts

2D vs 3D CG – Tales of Hearts

The upcoming Tales of Hearts, for the DS this winter, is set to have two different versions, one with cutscenes in the anime style the Tales series has traditionally used to great effect, and another in a Final Fantasy style CG style; all of this is very puzzling, but what is even more puzzling is how the two will look.

As you can see, the 3D version comes of looking like “a gang of cosplayers”, and there is little doubt which version will be selling, in Japan at least.

Vesperia: Buy Levels, Gold on Marketplace

It has emerged that Microsoft’s saviour RPG, Tales of Vesperia, incorporates downloadable content in a heretofore unseen manner: in fact you can simply eschew playing the game entirely and shell out points/yen on Marketplace to obtain the money and gold, in a brazen imitation of classic MMORPG gold farming, except without the Chinese or eBay.
