One day late because I had to work so I couldn’t pass by to pick it up. But my pre-ordered Tales of Graces f has finally placed itself in my hands.
My only disappointment was that, watching DSPGaming’s unboxing videos on youtube, I thought (hoped) that maybe since I got it through pre-order I’d get something special. But at the same time when I opened it and realized I got nothing extra, I wasn’t surprised. The majority of very anime-ish games are usually like this with “exceptions” to very small few of them such as Lunar Eternal Blue 2 which I got back in the PS1’s golden days. Outside of Digimon and Dragon Valor, Lunar EB 2 was the very first jrpg I played without veing scared so much that I’d never wanna play it again. It’s most definitely because I was young, but playing Dragon Valor was like playing a horror game for me even though I really liked the game. One of my fondest childhood memories.
Wait where was I going with this? Oh yeah, Lunar came in a large package with a CD album, a pouch with Lunar’s pendant which was a perfect size to wear (though large on me lol i was small), 3-disc game. And yeah. Was awesome. Atelier Rorona and SMT Persona 1 did something similar. But yeah, it;s not very often that you get such special treatment when buying such games.
Anyway, I have not played it yet. Too tired and sleepy to play. But I’ll give my impressions of it.
If you have not or will not play it just because you have fandom to rely on… all I can say to you is : “tsk tsk” *look of pity and shame*
It’s worth it to play it. And if you depend on someone else’s miscellaneous fandom it just feels wrong XD You’re not serving the series well to do that. Just my personal opinion but if you want to do it, go ahead. Whatever floats your boat.
But really, I’m probably gonna say this a lot on my blog because it bothers me, but… there’s a difference between being a fan of the series and just being a fan of the character design. XD And that’s all I’ll say.
