Since this is the 7th highest rated video game of all time (and yes I realize the weighted average is still a little unfair towards everything else, but still) it's actually become required for me to play this, since of course everyone tells me this is the best game they've ever played. I was going to wait on a sale like Jazz but I think I'll go ahead and pick it up on payday.
It's also going to release on the PC if you have one capable of running games. I like my Xbox One, it has plenty of good exclusives, but I don't feel like the purchase has truly been worth it. I think I'd feel that way about the PS4 as well though. I just have too many games to play.
Oh really? That's a shame, I thought that was pretty much the only version left people could play easily with each other, other than PSO2 of course but you have to go through quite a bit getting that to work.
Aw, I was gonna download it to my flash cart and see if you guys wanted to play it for shits and giggles. Am I correct in assuming the game didn't use Nintendo's WiFi Connection network and was independent?
I'd blame 8-4 for that. While I appreciate what they do, I've never been a huge fan of their work (Abyss onwards)...the best Tales localization is Symphonia and that's because Nintendo financed it and used an external group whose name escapes me at the moment. I'm also in the camp that enjoyed Working Designs' translations and localizations of the same ilk. If you're taking these melodramatic games that seriously, then perhaps you need to seek out a sense of humor and realize how ridiculous it all is.
My S-Video cables have yet to come, but I replaced my component cables with shielded ones and holy fuck it makes a world of difference. Not only that, but I was able to isolate the interference problem with my other consoles as well (like when I did the livestream and the Wii had a ton of it, it was my powered converter box and its super strong signal fucking with all of the other cables). I can only hope that these shielded S-Video cables get rid of the rest of the interference I'm dealing with and the checkerboard stuff...this was my fault, I have a ton of splitters, amps, switches and cables everywhere, I should have had the foresight to predict there'd be a fuckload of interference. By the way, this is what my capture looks like:
I'm running SCART -> SCART switch -> SCART TO YUV (component) adapter -> Component switch box -> Component distribution amplifier -> Split to CRT & Capture card Just for kicks, this is what it looks like on my TV.
Fucking gorgeous, I can't wait to start playing and capturing and all that. It was a lot of work, time and money, but it was worth it.
