Older Games Galore

Well, I've started picking up some games that I missed out on in the last generation for some reason or another. They are:


Your shield is really useful in Urban Chaos.
That's about it. I managed to pick up Urban Chaos for only $5 which was an awesome deal (it didn't come with the case or manual, sadly) since that game is actually really good. It's refreshing playing a game where you're a cop instead of the criminal. There should be more games like this. I'd love playing a GTA-style game where you play a normal police officer instead of a Niko-like character.

I just got Tales of Symphonia in the mail today and haven't got that far into it, but I like it so far. The only thing that annoys me at this point is the voice actress for Colette; her voice is just... wrong.
Tales of Symphonia
Beyond that I like the story so far. At least the main character isn't as much of a wuss as the one in Tales of Destiny I. Not much to say about Destiny II and Phantasia. The voice acting in II is the most annoying yet, so much so that I had to turn them off. I have the Japanese PS1 version of Phantasia and the voices in that are great; I think Phantasia is my favorite of the early Tales. In case you're wondering, the reason I'm playing all of these Tales games is to get ready for when I grab Tales of Vesperia.
Creatures pop out to make you dead.


The Suffering is a lot better than I thought it would be. It's got a nice balance of action and horror. There are some annoyances (like getting stuck behind tables, for example), but it's a pretty good game over-all. I have the US Airforce sponsored version, but the ads are for the most part unobtrusive. Hey, at least I get a game for free.

That's all I really have to say. I'm replaying some other games that I just got again, like the Virtual Console version of Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars and The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker which I never completed.

I love what I've played of the Tales Series. I've played most of Phantasia, all of Symphonia, and most of Vesperia. I'm almost 2/3 done with Vesperia, and I'm loving it. It's sort of straying away from the straightforward elemental dungeons of other JRPG's. Even Symphonia was a bunch of traveling to different elemental dungeons to beat the game. Which isn't bad, it's just a little more traditional. It's still one of my most favorite games of all time.
I haven't been able to play Tales of Destiny or the second one, but I don't own a PS2. I've thought about buying one for a while now to play some great PS2 and PS1 games, but now I'm broke again, so that'll be held off a bit longer.

I hope you enjoy Vesperia. If you need any help send me a message or wall message. I've helped TokyoChicken out a bit too.

Just as long as you keep in mind that some save points heal you, and they give off a different sound that others, then you can learn to abuse this, and grind like crazy in that area if you need to.

Good luck!

I loved Tales of Symphonia, do you think you'll be getting the second game?

I might. It depends.
