    I'm playing through Tales of Symphonia for the first time and am absolutely loving it. Apparently I'm nearing the end of disc one, so I don't have too much more to go (I've been told disc two is only about ten hours long). I bought Tales of the Abyss on Friday, but I'm waiting to open it until I finish Symphonia.

    I should get back to that game. So far, I've defeated Van the first time. It's a great game.

    It's a great game. I came so close to finishing it but my PS2 froze in the final battle. :(  I didn't play it for a while after that. I need to start up a new file.

    I hope EB Games still has it for the 3DS when I can afford it. Damn Transformers addiction...


    OH! Thanks for reminding me of Tales of Graces f coming out soon. I totally forgot about it.

    The Tales series has always been one of my favorite series of JRPGs. I wish they didn't always make you wait awhile to be able to set your battle style to free, though. It's hard always having to go back to the more limited styles every time you start a new game.

    Like in Tales of Eternia... Semi-Auto is bearable in some of the games but not that one. I should not dread the battles but the automatic spacing in Eternia is so frustrating.

    Was dificult to find but managed to pick up a copy. Still slow when it comes to combat but I guess that's standard RPG.

    I found my own copy as well a few days ago. Have been playing on and off, but enjoying the fact that it's got voice acting.

    yeah why is this game such a bitch to find? bestbuy/amazon are backordered up the ass and only a few select gamestops in my area seem to have it in limited quantities (which means they probably only have opened copies they're trying to sell at "new" prices...fuck that). seems like stores slept on ordering their copies of this.

    The game has limited production. After a while, you may start to see prices skyrocket.

    Tales of RPG games, while incredibly deep with gameplay and story... people don't consider these games as mainstream and they suffer for it in the North American availability department.

    But considering that TWO Tales of games are coming out in the span of TWO months in ONE year... Colour me surprised.

    I'm kinda worried about how close tales of Graces is to release as I'll probably be burned out by Tales of the Abyss. Still, I have to buy it to make sure it won't be impossible to find in the future, happened to me way too many times with other games.
    Also, don't forget that they might release tales of rebirth for the PSV in the west and that makes it 3 tales games in one year!
