@francium34: clearly off topic, but man do I miss the sports quick looks. Feel like Bizness Dave & Jan could have some fun in Madden.

I really like Tales of Arise though. It is something that I have no problem recommending to other jrpg fans and telling people who are not fans of jrpgs that they probably won't like this one either. Reminds me of DQ11 in that regards.

Jason seem significantly louder than Jan and gameplay to everyone else? The volume level I had to set it at to hear Jan clearly made Jason a bit uncomfortably loud. Could just be me.

Looks cool, I just wish it wasn't so close to Scarlet Nexus's release. Been meaning to try a Tales game for quite awhile and this combat seems right up my alley.

I was interested in this after hearing so much about it, but this is clearly a little too much anime trash for me.

This looks perfectly serviceable and enjoyable. That said, it also looks extremely generic and without adding anything of note to the genre. Especially that slow persona-esque chasing of the enemies and getting stuck behind a table is a very playstation 2 sight.

20 hours in this seems like a perfectly adequate JRPG to me. Kinda bummed that despite the hype it doesn't really rise on the level of FF7 remake and Cold Steel 4. Still enjoying it tho.
