    Welcome to the “Tales of” Club! This is where the fans of the “Tales of” [Series] can hang out and talk, speculate, and chat about the video game series!

    The “Tales of” [Series] is a popular role-playing game published by Namco. There are many series published in various consoles like GameBoy Advance, Super Famicom, PSX, PSP, GameCube, Wii etc. So far all of the published series are as follows:
    -Tales of Phantasia
    -Tales of Destiny
    -Tales of Eternia
    -Tales of Destiny 2
    -Tales of Symphonia
    -Tales of Rebirth
    -Tales of Legendia
    -Tales of the Abyss
    -Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World
    -Tales of the Tempest
    -Tales of Innocence
    -Tales of Vesperia
    -Tales of Hearts

    There are also Tales of The World: Narikiri Dungeon, Narikiri Dungeon 2, Narikiri Dungeon 3, Summoner’s Lineage, Radiant Mythology and Radiant Mythology 2. (Thanks to Arceus03 for the above intro)

    All “Tales of” games have many aspects in common with each other: side quests, summon spirits, recipes, equipment, the title system, skits etc. But the most noticeable thing is the time-based 2D-fighting system. A player can control one character in battle and direct that character during the battle. And many attacks and spells, such as ‘Lightning Blade’ and ‘Indignation’, appear in most of the games in some shape and form (some of the spells also keep the chants that are needed to be said before casting.) Players can also perform ’Unison Attacks’, where all of the ally party fighters in battle attack an enemy at once. Hi-Ougi, or special, powerful attacks unique to a character, can only be cast by activating an Unison Attack (in most “Tales Of” games).

    I'm joining!!!
    *does an excited jig dance*

    1. what tales of games have you played?

    Tales of Phantasia and Tales of Eternia. I have Tales of Destiny, but still am not thinking about playing it. Currently playing ToP PSX version.

    2. Name your favorite two Characters from any games and why?
    ToP - Arche. She's damn funny.
    ToE - Farah. Her skills are just awesome, especially Maximum Burst. Meredy comes in second, having Maxwell Extensions to boot.

    3. Name Your least favorite two characters form any games and why?
    Guess I haven't got one..

    4. Why do you like the Tales of series game?
    The LMBS (Linear Motion Battle System). It's the thing that differentiates the Tales of Series from other RPG games, and I LOVE this system. It's time based, and you'll never feel bored battling wild monsters ^_^
    Also there are funny skits in the game. I like that too. Furthermore, some series have hi-ougi which are just awesome~

    Oh darklord18 you should add some more in your first post so anyone who hasn't played Tales of [Series] before could have a good glimpse about what the game is like. Let's see.. you could put introduction, then some info about the battle system, then a list of released series, and so on. I could try to do that, or you can do it yourself.

    Ok you can join arceus03 and if you can that would be great as I haven't play many games yet. I like the hi-ougi but I hate the way they made them in Tales of the world; RM.

    What boss (use spoiler tags if you need two. and no final boss) did you like.

    the secret boss in Tos, not only dose he use your move and Spell, he came even do Hi-ogui (one of my favorites but I forgot the name.) I actully had a spare save right before him so I can fight him over and over.

    What boss did you like.
    Maxwell. As he floats near a wall, I'd abuse Aegis Strike (you know, the one in which Cress sticks his weapon into the ground and light particles came floating up) and get in lots of hits XD

    I'd say Nereid, as when you're battling him you get to use Reid's skill Aurora Wave when Eternal Finality/Darkness of the Outer Limits is directed at the team, but.. no final boss, so....

    Cress + Arche at the Colosseum, if you use the Hardcore mode. It's fun battling them ^_^ I abused Rising - Burning Phoenix like mad and when I'm low on health I just execute Aurora Wall + Slash~

    Oh Cress you shouldn't have used your Albain Finality.

    Fighting Greater Craymels is fun, too. But it isn't fun when Maxwell uses Shooting Star on you DX

    /\How about that battle against the Greater graymel of time where you came have someone beat with that powerfull spell?
  6. arceus03

    arceus03 Well-Known Member

    Oh? Sekundes? Yes, he was a pain in the *** D:
    Lucky Indignation is a one-hit kill, and lucky Max has some powerful skills (namely Aqua Spiral). Otherwise I don't know how I could possibly battle him.

    I didn't dare to battle him in the Hard mode. The only battles (Grater Craymels) that I didn't battle in Hard mode was Undine (didn't know there was a Hard mode at that time), Efreet, Sekundes and Maxwell. All others were done in Hard mode.

    Isn't anyone else joining? D:

  7. ZOMG I'm joining!!!

    1. what tales of games have you played?
    Tales of Phantasia, Tales of Symphonia, and Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World

    2. Name your favorite two Characters form any games and why?
    ToS & ToS2: Zelos - I like how he's comic relief and such. I also like using him in ToS.
    ToS2: Emil - I've played a lot of video games, and all the main characters are starting to blend together. Emil is a nice change of pace since he whines alot :p

    3. Name Your least favorite two characters form any games and why?
    Well... I can't really think of two I don't like. I like them all equality (which is really rare for me since I usually find one I hate.)

    4. Why do you like the Tales of series game?
    The battle system is fun, I love the Tech/artes, and even though the plots are sometimes confusing, I love the plots.

    Yeah you can join
    I haven't play Tales of symphonia: dawn of the new world. what it like?
    Zelos reminds me of Brock.
    And thank for arceus03 for the info, I just add in now.

    arceus03 Well-Known Member

    No need for credits at the top :p
    Also I haz something~


    There's the link, without the asterisk (*)
    If you want one that has a specific character in it, like Cress, Lloyd, Stahn, Undine etc just tell me ^_^
  10. Symphonia 2 isn't as good as the original, but it's still good. You have to awaken Centarions (I spelled it wrong.) in order to wake up Ratatosk, the Summon Spirit of the old Kharlan Tree and put the world back into order. Of course, people are trying to stop you and stuff. Lloyd posed as a bad guy in the game... You can capture monsters and have them fight with you in battle, but it's a pain to get them in the first place :/

    Only three of the original voice actors from ToS return. That's Presea's, Colette's, and Kratos' (ironically, Kratos only acts as the narrator in the beginning, and appears in one spot.) Everyone else has new voices. Lloyd, Sheena and Zelos are the hardest to get use too... LLoyd's makes my ears bleed :eek:

    Honestly, I can go on about ToS2.

    Tales of Symphonia seems fun. Wish I can play it :x

    It's only in Japanese, right? Sapphire Phoenix?

    I wonder what are we going to do here apart from creating topic. Maybe answering questions regarding games/anime, but as we all play different series it's not so practical.

    Any ideas about what we should do? Maybe, like, creating your own.. character/magic/skills? :x

    Agreed. The plot is so full of twist. E.g in ToP later in the end it was actually revealed that Dhaos was battling to save his planet D: Poor guy.

    Have you watched the animations yet?
    I'm done with Tales of Phantasia, soon starting on ToE and ToS the OVA.

    /\ I agree let create a character here how it would set out. If you want to help make better let me know.

    what He look like;
    weapon (can have 2 different type of weapons};
    Tech/art/spell max 15;
    Hi-ogui max 3;

    I do my later

    Yes finally I can have a monsters fight with you, cool but Sapphire phoenix, How are the Hi ogui? are they better than Tales of the world RM where it like a normal art with no cut in and such as there are in Abyss, etc and I think I know who Loyd voice actor is.

    In ToS near the halfway point of the game, you find out that the ancient hero Mithos is the main bad guy and then near the end you find out why he did everything he did because he loses his younger sister. poor guy. I hop this is right as I haven't play it in awhile.

    it on Gamecube outside Japaneses and both Gamecube and PS2 in Japanese. but it fun, but the final boss was a joke. Right Sapphire Phoenix.

    To the topic no I haven't seen the animations. and thanks for the banner I use it later if I can remember how to do link a picture with a thread..

    I've an idea. Say, we all (3 of us XD I really hope many more joins soon) pick our own job, i.e warrior, mage, healer, archer etc then we create our own self. Then you can put them on first post besides the members' names.

    arceus03 (Healer)

    The word "(Healer)" comes with a link of our own post about that. And you'll have to make some rules about that on the first post, too. For example, spells can't obviously be too powerful, etc.

    Oh, if someone wants to be a spirit/greater Craymel, he/she can do so, too. Just include information about appearance, element associated and action when summoned.

    One more. darklord18, don't 15 max spells seem too.. much? I mean, there are a lot of spells already out there, so maybe less than 10 is fine, I dunno... Like, what other spells a Healer could possibly have, when First Aid, Cure, Heal, Resurrection, Revitalize is already there? :x

    Join first, read thread beyond post one later :D (sorry, I love the series).

    1. what tales of games have you played?

    Phantasia (PSP version though ;)), Eternia, Destiny, Symphonia, Legendia, Abyss, Rebirth, Vesperia. I also own Destiny II, but waiting until I finish Destiny. Also, I barely started Destiny or Legendia, plan to get through Destiny soon.

    2. Name your favorite two Characters form any games and why?

    Jade and Yuri. Jade is just incredibly humorous and all-around a great character, while Yuri is just a great protagonist, unlike some other whiny protagonists I know (*coughlloydcough*)

    3. Name Your least favorite two characters form any games and why?

    Collete and Asch. Collete because she is annoying and causes you to go some of the more annoying dungeons in the game, and Asch because he is just so stuck-up you get sick of it.

    4. Why do you like the Tales of series game?

    Battle system mainly, especially Rebirth's. I also like Abyss's and Vesperia's stories, although the others don't seem exceptional. It's just a fun ARPG IMO.

    Probably because it didn't begin off as a sequel and began off as a spin-off (actually, it is a spin-off, just the plot is a sequel to a canon game). Haven't played it yet though, plan to get it for Christmas, along with an imported Innocence.

  15. I've never seen the TotWRM or Abyss, but there is hi-ougi You activate it by holding B when you activate a Unison Attack (pressing C on the nunchuck when the bar is filled up) If you did right, you'll get a Hi-Ougi attack with a cut it anime thing. They're fun to watch but they cause a load of TP. Out of the 16 Hi-Ougi in the game, I've only seen... 7 (4 of them were Bosses...Yes, the certain bosses use Hi-Ougi). The original ToS cast is suppose to be able use them, but I've haven't been able to trigger one since you can't control the original ToS characters (you can switch to them in battle, but it's a pain to do)

    He's a sadistic freak. Honestly, get over it. I do not get the last (very last) boss at all. What the heck is he suppose to be?

    Yep. Seriously. The boss was... unusual. And the whole ending confused me sooo much.

    Yeah, I forgot about that. It's as close as a ToS sequel as ToP was... (and ToP isn't a true-blue sequel since it has never been officially announced as one...)...ZOMG I'm confusing myself here x.X

    I liek quotes...

    Well, Tales of Symphonia just borrowed the Mana tree part and built off that to make a prequel. Any affiliation revolves around that Mana tree, with a few other things (where Origin is and that entire elf village and Ymir Forest, albeit the Ninja village isn't in ToS where it is in ToP). But ya, Symphonia mostly just alludes to Phantasia, it's mostly a stand alone game :p

    Zora welcome to the club.
    Ok I will think of a way to do it and put it soon as I can.
    What I mean is that you can have up to 15 tech/art/spell total like 10 tech and five 5 spell. but with Hi-ogui you can only have 3 max inclubing the one like Luke one in Abyss (forgot what they are.) where you can do two after one another will count as two hi ogui. ok? and Zora welcome.

    New Topic

    What was the most annoying/funniest thing that you did in the game.

    Battling that secret guy In ToS and have him in a 113 combo and the game stop and saids "Please put the ToS disc in." over and over again. even after taking the disc out and putting it back in.
    Last edited: Dec 16, 2008
  18. Ya, but I've found that Symphonia 2 is a 'link' to the two games... even if it's a spin-off. Meh, it's pretty fun to see all the similar things about the three :D

    Awesome! Finally a Tales club! Can I join?

    1. what tales of games have you played?
    Only Tales of Symphonia 1 and 2

    2. Name your favorite two Characters form any games and why?
    Colette and Sheena. I like Colettes personality, and Sheena has the whole Ninja Lady thing going on, which is cool. I also like Emil, because when he's not in Ratatosk mode, he is kinda like me.

    3. Name Your least favorite two characters form any games and why?
    Decus and Zelos. They're both just like.... ew. Alice is also one of the worst. I know she's not like 3. It's time she let the baby talk go.

    4. Why do you like the Tales of series game?
    The battle system is like the most fun from any games ever, and the storyline is always really good. It does a good job of getting you involved and interested in everything.
