Tales of Xillia 2

Like the Final Fantasy series, it’s relatively rare to see a direct sequel in the Tales franchise, so Xillia 2 had a lot of explaining to do. While met with mixed reception on its release, it proved to be a solid addition to the series that allowed players to revisit favourite areas, hang out with beloved characters and encounter an all-new narrative. And remember: bazongas are the burning fire at the heart of manhood!

Tales of Xillia 2: Some First Impressions - By popular (well, relatively speaking) request, it’s time for us to take a look at Tales of Xillia 2, the newest Western release in Bandai Namco’s long-running Tales of series. I absolutely adored the original Tales of Xillia, as my original review over at my former stomping grounds of USgamer will attest. While the game had a few flaws here and there — … Continue reading Tales of Xillia 2: Some First Impressions
Tales of Xillia 2: A Test of Character - One of the most important things for any party-based RPG to get right is that feeling of everyone having a place. This can be handled in two different ways according to what kind of RPG we’re contemplating. Dungeon crawlers like Demon Gaze take a mechanics-focused approach in which every member of your party has an important role … Continue reading Tales of Xillia 2: A Test of Character
Tales of Xillia 2: Becoming a Better Person - Long gone are the days when an RPG could get away with a linear progression system, with characters simply learning skills at predefined levels. Instead, these days we see all manner of different takes on the traditional “level up” system — and a few games that abandon it altogether in favour of alternative means of … Continue reading Tales of Xillia 2: Becoming a Better Person
Tales of Xillia 2: Those Who Fight Together… - While it may be hyperbolic to say that an RPG can live or die by its combat system — I’ve played plenty of games over the years that remained compelling despite shambolic or overly simplistic battle systems — it’s certainly an important part of the experience as a whole. The Tales series has always somewhat done its … Continue reading Tales of Xillia 2: Those Who Fight Together…
Tales of Xillia 2: The Difficult Second Game - There’s a reason we don’t see all that many direct sequels in gaming these days: they’re extremely difficult to do effectively. This is particularly true in genres where individual installments are sprawling, lengthy affairs with narratives of a length equivalent to your average TV series — such as, say, role-playing games. This isn’t to say … Continue reading Tales of Xillia 2: The Difficult Second Game
Waifu Wednesday: Milla Maxwell - I have a confession to make: at the time of writing, the Tales series is, for the most part, a bit of a black spot in my JRPG knowledge. I’m not completely clueless on the appeal of the series, however, since back when I was on USgamer I covered the first Tales of Xillia game… and quite early in … Continue reading Waifu Wednesday: Milla Maxwell
