    You can get it if you have a Grainger Games nearby, they have the import.

    The game itself is terrific if you enjoy playing RPGs for the mechanics; the battles, advancement and ancillary systems are some of the best out there. The story's not quite up there, though it depends on how much you like the main character. He's no Edge Maverick, but he is a bit gormless.

    I've been so close to either firing up Vesperia or Symphonia in the last few weeks and completely forgot about this. I might have a trek about Glasgow tomorrow and see if any of the usual wee places have it.

    Is G-Force still open? Last time I was in Glasgow they didn't seem to have any imports, though. Failing that, Grainger do mail order and they only want 40 quid for the US version - although the UK version is out at the end of August and has a special "day one" edition for the same price.

    Aye G-Force is still kicking about. I try not to go in there since the last unpleasantness over a busted Lost Odyssey disc.
  • Deleted user 9 July 2012 22:35:15
    I'll check out Grainger though, cheers for the tip.

    Maybe I did make it sound quite similar...bugger :D It definitely feels different, much faster paced than Vesperia, with a much more integral combo system and dodging/sidestepping is a big part of the combat.

    Imported mine from VG+

    Still waiting for the European release, personally. It may be my favourite series but I want to support the local release. :) Nice that they're rewarding us for doing so this time.

    I've always felt the Tales series maintains their battle system reasonably closely between games (certainly compared to some other series) so I'm curious to try the new version if it's a bit different. I've found them all fun. :)

    Did anyone enter fanart in that Namco event by the way? They want to release a promo magazine filled with fanwork with August's issue of Neo.

    Ordered it off Grainger. Excited! First game I've bought in about six months.

    Looks like it's not so much a Day 1 edition as the usual overpriced special editions you get, which is a shame. I mean, aye, it looks nice, but Graces F's Day 1 edition was great because you got nice extras for the standard game price.

    @JoeGBallad I don't know, there's a separate Collectors Edition with Milla statue through the GAF link.

    Confirmed by Namco-Bandai now. The Milla Edition will be 85.99/99.99 (!). The Day One Edition didn't have a price specified, so I'm assuming it'll effectively be the 'standard' edition, as was the case with Graces f. It's out on August 9th.

    Sounds like the Collector's Edition can only be ordered from the official website in Europe? It's 79.99 on there. Tales of Game

    Symphonia back on the GameCube. There've been few since then, with Graces F on PS3 being the latest one to come out in Europe. Can't blame you for missing them though; Graces F was the highest profile release, and even then, it wasn't exactly front page news! Great games though.

    Ah sorry, I've played and completed all of them from Symphonia onwards, including the 3DS one!

    I meant you can rotate the camera, apologies :)

    Ah, fair enough. :p I do like how the backgrounds and scenery look in Xillia from the trailers.

    Sorry! I sounded like a right arsehole there didn't I? You're right enough, this is the first one with a moveable camera, which is a pretty big deal. It looks properly stunning, so I'm looking forward to it.

    Glad there's an actual day 1 edition too from the sounds of things. Earlier, the only edition I could see was the one with the statue, which is typically overpriced.

    I went slightly mad a week or so ago and decided to cancel my ShopTo D1 order and pre-order the collectors ed through Namco-Bandai (a day before ShopTo announced they'd be selling it...). I have just checked my bank statement online and I've been charged already! I suppose it's too much to hope it'd turn up ridiculously early :D

    I've just ordered the regular version from Amazon. 33.99, not bad. Didn't realise this was out next week until today.

    Hope it's good, I loved Vesperia and I enjoyed Graces F but didn't finish the future arc since the dungeon design was just getting too repetitive. Although some of the dungeons in the main game were horrific. Like wallbridge. Fuck that place.

    I just finished the future arc a few days ago and you're right about the dungeons. The last one in particular was a bit of a ball ache. To be honest, I thought pretty much all the dungeons in Graces f were a bit lacklustre - they seemed a bit copy/paste-y. I'm hopeful Xillia will be better in that regard.

    Quite tempted to get this....

    I've got no Internet for 10 days, but should probably clear some backlog.

    *will probably pre order it in 5 mins*
