Is the latest Y's game not a trash fire on PC yet? I was looking forward to it. Then it got pushed back, had major stability issues and the awful localization and I didn't want it. Now I don't really have money to buy games anyway and I barely see it go for lower than like 40 bucks.
Goodluck to everyone that is into the Trails series; I'd like to be but it seems like just too many games that I need to Vinny(start from the beginning, play them all). I'm scared for all of you.
It still sounds wonky. Some people had zero problems with it, while other couldn't get it to run at all. Honestly I just went with the PS4 version after the first sign of trouble.
Honestly I've only played half of Trails in the Sky before playing the first Cold Steel and didn't have problems understanding stuff. But CS2 is another story though since events in another(untranslated) game are going on at almost the same time.
People who say Blitzball are nuts. Dodging the lightning is the real enemy.
I would rather dodge 100 lightning bolts than ever play Blitzball again.
I must have blocked it out but I just remembered the true final boss fight in Drakengard 3. The whole game is an ok action game and you make to the finish and all of the sudden it becomes a... rhythm mini game? Which might be fine if you didn't have to basically get perfect. I tried a few times and just gave up.
Dawn of the New World was such a let down. iirc I made it as far as Colette and just stop playing. Think I just went back to Vesperia and started up a new game.
The Xillia games are pretty enjoyable. I'd recommend taking a long break between playing 1 and 2. Xillia 2 reuses a good deal of content(monsters/Areas) from the first game, although there is a decent amount of new monsters and areas as well. Still I think story and combat are more enjoyable in 2. It was also fun to meet up with the old cast members after the events in the first game. It's kind of what I wanted from ToS 2.
@doughnutwarlord: Symphonia is a lot of fun, just be ready for it to be a bit of a slog and have a couple of quirks that remind you it's from 2004 (also I guess the PC port is a bit of a dumpster fire, but I believe there are some DSfix-like solutions to fix the most egregious issues.) I should state unequivocally that you probably shouldn't play its sequel. I'm a firm believer in the idea that you can sometimes learn more from bad pieces of media than you can from good, but you can get a pretty clear picture of everything that's wrong with Dawn of the New World by around the end of Chapter 3. Like, as a whole, I think it's a lot more baffling than it is miserable, and the plot goes full stupid near the end, but I was already writing this blog in my head by the 5 hour mark.
Actually the PC port of ToS is running pretty ok at this point. But I'd still recommend installing DSfix for the cut scenes though.
They didn't even bother porting Dawn of the New World over to Steam. Not really sure what the reasoning was, but I didn't care enough to look into it.
