Wow, guess it was off brand then. But that was really lucky. Good thing Sonic only needed like one button. lol Tho if that was me, I'd be fighting over who got 1st player. lol I LOVE sonic, and was obsessed as a kid. lol You'd have to fight me to get to play Sonic. lol (even tho I'd be that person who'd die. lol) And I got FF7 for 20. I decided to just give it a shot at the VERY least, and I was utterly addicted. Many nights were had where I left the game on cuz I'd go to sleep playing. lol XD
And yeah, I heard the anime was just an after thought, but it would have been nice to see it. lol I love the game so much, I would have loved it. lol XD Guess i'm just happy I have the game. lol XD And I knew bout the name changes, and how many hated it, but I was neutral since I never really played it or cared too much. lol Tho I can understand in a way as people will look at Ratix and pass, but see Roddick, and might like it more. I guess at least. lol And yeah, Mp death was annoying. Boss level regualar enemies would just spam MP attacks and I'd die everytime. Very frustrating. (I was at the very end too. lol) I want to rebuy it and finish. Eventually. lol
And honestly, the dub is pretty good. Tales of games usually are decently. Then again, i'm biased. lol Most of my games I prefer to hear in english, besides fighting and other random stuff. (but I LOVE hearing attacks in japanese. lol) Anime is the exact opposite. I prefer almost everything in japanese. lol I'm loving the game so far. It's really fun.
And you don't call it connections, but I do. lol You are lucky to have people like that. lol I have some gamers friends who were are as deep as me, but the more deeper ones are kinda jerks, and we don't talk anymore. So I just get everything myself usually. lol I'm EAGERLY awaiting Xenoblade right now. lol
We like too much of the same stuff. lol
Lol, I liked Tails, so I was fine with being 2P if I got to be him <3 FF7 was my first real console RPG, so it's what broke the surface for me. Prior to that was all emulators, and then I had Orphen, but that game is soo bad (even if I love the series).
Well, most animes that span from vgames tend to be pretty...bad, but ya sorta go in expecting that. I still thought it was pretty well done, at least compared to some of the other ones I've seen *coughcoughtalesofeterniacough*. I dunno, I just don't see WHY they changed them in 1, since they didn't change them in any of the other games! And actually, to me, Roddick sounds more harsh and cruel...and Ratix is a pretty gentle character, the name fits him more. Well, I got my Ratix cosplayer starting to use the Japanese names, although he only has the English game, haha, just cause I keep yelling at him! But it does bother me D:
The problem is, most of the games in the US tend to use the same voices. You don't get that kinda repetitive usage in Japan. Plus, at least with Star Ocean games, they are pretty notorious for getting at least one super awesome big name actor in there. Like SO1 had Miyano Mamoru as Ratix; SO2 had Akira Ishida as Ashton; SO3 had Souchirou Houshi as Fate; and SO4 had Saiga Mitsuki as Faize. And there were other big names in there, too, but those are the ones that I see and go nuts for. Like I played SO4 in English first (xbox version), but when the international came out, looved it to death. Saiga-san was so freaking awesome as Faize!! <3 I've actually met the dub actress for Meracle (and for Baccus, though I wouldn't have guessed Travis did him lol), and not only was the voice change really not that different from sub to dub, she was so freaking cute. And she was one of the like 4 people who recognized me at Faize's debut con XD
Ooh, I'm thinking about preordering Xenoblade cause I have a $25 best buy, and a $25 gamestop giftcards...

I finished Tales of Vesperia in 85 hours. I went through all the side quests and looked for everything. The only reason I have over 180+ is because of what I told you lol Looking for every item, side skit, titles - there's SO much in that game that it's unbelievable that it's only one disk. It's by far one of my favorite RPGs out there.
That's alright lol I probably wouldn't go to the shoot either unless you were there and mainly because I have many other things I want to do as well. I guess when I finish a game like that, I get upset I didn't get everything. But like I said before, I got upset that I didn't get all the endings and it was only after I saw them on youtube. I suppose you can keep me updated if you like.
The onyl thing I didn't do in ToV was when ya hafta like gather pieces of a weapon or something? They barely mentioned it, but apparently it's actually part of th storyline. I wasn't the only one who skipped it though. My big Tales fanatic friend skipped it, too. haha. Lol, but that's just it, I did like at least 95% of the same thing. I just spent like 1 hr per dungeon, even with getting everthing in it. I can't help it. I powerhouse through things...XD
Yeah, it's just not really worth it...if I knew other cosplayers were going (hence the whole initial reason for this thread), it would be one thing...cause I mean, like I said, I have a cosplay from every game cept Blue Sphere now. I would bring one along to match the people there, haha.
