Today we have a very... INTERESTING episode
of Q&A for you. I always said I take any
and all questions! Anyway, with Final
Fantasy XIV arrived and a review copy
of Disgaea D2 (plus that retroview
I've neglected) I've got plenty on my plate.
With that in mind, Q&A will be taking a
brief end of summer break next week, so
you've got plenty of time to get your
Anyway, let's get to it!
(Silly) Tales of Xillia-related
1. Would you want Sylph to style your hair?
Or is there a person/character who is in
dire need of Sylph's hairdressing skills?
I would! I
mean, I have no hair style in
the slightest, so I think Sylph
could do something for me. I
don't know what characters are
really in need of some new hair
styling. I don't think I'm the
2. Neck scarves/neckerchiefs or long scarves
I'd go with the
long scarves. Maybe it's because
I'm used to cold winter months,
but I've just always preferred
the traditional scarf. I don't
really get the shorter ones!
Again, I'm obviously not the
best person to judge anyway.
3. Are your Tales of Xillia
characters wearing any additional
accessories? Particularly, what is your
favorite of the eyewear?
I didn't even
realize there were additional
accessories to that extent! Now
I'm going to have to keep a look
out and see if the game has
monocles. If it does, you might
as well rename it to Tales
of Monocles because I will
have them on my entire party.
Are there crazy hats as well? Oh
boy, this is not good, I am
going to have an interesting
Do you believe Nintendo at a future Nintendo
Direct will announce localization's for at
least Dragon Quest X, VIII
3ds, Monster 1 or 2 3ds?
I want to
believe, but there is a feeling
of uncertainty for a lot of
these titles. I think the thing
to keep in mind is that Dragon
Quest IX did quite well
overseas, so it would seem Dragon
Quest VII would be a good
title for Nintendo to push. That
said, there were already a lot
of RPGs coming to the 3DS this
year, many from Nintendo, plus
it's a large localization, so
sometime next year always seemed
more likely to me for that game.
I think we won't be seeing any
of the side titles. Not that the
previous ones were exactly major
busts, but it will likely depend
on Nintendo's release schedule
and if they have a gap one of
these games could fit into.
Doesn't seem like Square Enix
will be publishing any of these
3DS games themselves, so we're
left to the whims of Nintendo's
scheduling. Really not sure as
far as Dragon Quest X goes.
The PC version coming out soon
would seem to make it more
likely to come out in the West,
but we'll see. Square Enix
(rightly so) should probably
focus on getting Final
Fantasy XIV up and
running again before worrying
about another MMO.
Regardless, I hope Dragon
Quest fans get some good
news sooner rather than later.
I've been reading
the Q&A's for quite sometime now,
however, I've never written in. That changes
today! Ok, on to my question. If you were to
make a seven man RPG party from your seven
favorite series...who would it consist of?
For example, Soma (God Eater) could
serve as a knight or Alice (Shadow Hearts)
could be a white mage. It doesn't have to be
from just RPG's, though. What makes this
more interesting is it can't be any of the
MAIN characters (Cloud (FFVII), Sora
(KH), Lloyd (ToS), Etc).
Wow, that is a
fantastic question, with so many
possible answers. I think for
starts I'd take on Adol from the
Ys series to be my main
fighter. Terra from Final
Fantasy VI would be the
obvious choose for a mage with a
dash of healing, though I could
also go with Celes. For a healer
I think I'd go with Sapphire
from Disgaea 3 since
she has some fantastic offensive
gun skills as well. For an all
out tank, I'd go with Dante from
the Devil May Cry series
given how durable he is (he gets
bashed over the head with a
motorcycle in the first game
like it's nothing). Lute from SaGa
Frontier could serve as
the comic relief and general
moral booster of the bunch. The
protagonist from Persona 4 would
be the jack of all trades of the
group, since he can switch
personas on the fly. Finally, I
feel like we need a thief type
of some kind, so why not use Garrett
from the Thief series?
I think this party would do
quite well. There are many other
possibilities, so I think I
shall put the call out to other
readers to submit their own
Hi there it's @EricRPG from twitter, and I
have some questions! About Tales
MILFs! Do you have any favorites or at least
ones you can spot? Here all of the ones I
can think of, and some are a bit of a
dear, I suppose I've always said
I take any and all
the fact the Tales
series usually bends towards
teenage protagonists, there
aren't a ton of mothers to
choose from. I really can't
think of any so let's see what
Rutee Katrea - Tales of Destiny/2
This woman is one sexy lady, and she is the
mother of Klye Aileron and wife of husband
Stahn Aileron, and she only got sexier over
Well she certainly rocks that
short haircut damn well! Good
one, since I mostly play Destiny
1 and 2 in
Japanese I don't often pay much
attention to the characters. I
didn't even think about her.
Ellen Matthis - Tales of Xillia/2
couldn't find a pictures, but I would. And
she's apparently into some kinky stuff based
on some reading material you find during an
optional scene in Leronde!
Really? Well that sure is...
interesting. Going to have to
keep an eye out for that
Now these are a bit of a stretch...
Mary Argent - Tales of Destiny
Built and beautiful! Well, I imagine she
became a mom after Destiny! She was
already 24 and wasn't getting any younger,
and she had a fiance!
Well I guess that's close
enough. She certainly is a
stylish looking fighter. I guess
she doesn't show up at all in Tales
of Destiny 2? I think more
direct sequels should star the
kids of the protagonists from
the first game. Let's a game use
fresh level one characters
without seeming forced and keeps
the emotional connection to the
original game. Anyway, a fine
Raine Sage - Tales of Symphonia
A bit on the conservative yet classic beauty
side, with an interest in knowledge. Not
really a mom, but she did have to raise her
younger brother Genis by herself, thus
taking on the mom role. Being a teacher, I'm
sure she could teach some lucky guy a thing
or too... 'wink wink'
here's a bit of fan art!
All I can think to respond to
this one is "oh boy..."
Milla Maxwell - Tales of Xillia
She's not really a mom so much as she's a
caretaker and Gaurdian of Spirits, but that
has to count for something! Also, who
wouldn't want to have fun with a God? She
sounds like the adventurous type, having
read books such as 'Men and Women Beneath
I'm not sure that really counts?
Oh well. Does she really read a
book called that in the game?
Well that's all I can think of. On to my
serious question! Will you play Kindgom
Hearts 1.5 Sea Salt movie game movie remix?
And that's all. Remember: "BE, ALL THAT YOU
CAN BE, IN THE SEA SALT ARMY!"
think I will try and avoid the
enhanced cut scenes from 358/2
at all costs. They're going to
be a few hours long, and I can't
imagine them containing much
more than a ton of the three
main characters sitting around
eating that damn sea salt ice
cream. Who am I kidding, I'll
probably force myself to watch
just as a reminder never to
replay that game!
Gahhhhh the memories!
See you all in two weeks!
