Awesome! Was really looking forward to hearing your impressions. I've already preordered it but this only confirms what I felt from all material and demo.

Honestly I preordered almost immediately after seeing how the game looked. It’s absolutely gorgeous. Pretty excited for this one.

I had to break my preorder-rule on this game, because I really wanted the collector's edition with the plushie ^^

Lol all the shouting in fights is a little annoying in Tales of games, but I kinda like it for how cheesy it can be.

Ooooof the last few minutes of the review are a bit disappointing as far as what you said regarding not being able to use the Xbox controller and how you have to close the game. Hope those issues get fixed ASAP.

06:20 ACG: 'This character is just a sandpaper handjob.' Me: 'Write that down, write that down!'

That sounds good! My computer is not the best of gaming pc's anymore, so I purchased an Xbox Series X like two months ago. This game right here.. it will be the first one I planned on playing on that Series X. I'm glad to hear that this game seems to do alright.

I do believe that at first unlikable sarcastic character is a classic Tales choice though. Every Tales game seems to have one of those, some get a bit more likable at the end, some you will hate forever and some have actual character development. I am pretty sure it's (as always) the mage you were talking about. I'm curious to find out if that one gets more likable over time, or not..!

Not sure what the deal is with Namco-Bandai's controller support with their PC games. I have never seen a company that has had so many issues with just allowing a controller to work properly with their games. I tried playing Tales of Vesperia on PC earlier this year and the controller kept cutting out, and that seems to be the norm. I also had issues with Code Vein. I don't know why they put no effort into that, when many of their games are designed for consoles and controllers.

I've been waiting for this review, I find myself being more hyped about reviews rather than the games themselves these days

It's an Unreal engine game, so probably the pop in could be improved changing the engine.ini file.

I had another ToA review lined up for this morning but seeing ACG reviewed it, Ill have to put this to the top of the list. I liked Monster Hunter Stories 2 a whole lot more than ACG did and the technical niggles on switch didnt bug me at all, but lets see where he goes with this one.

As a long time fan of the tales franchise who's kinda fell off the wagon with everything since "Graces R" I was really hoping for this to be a return to form that actually fixed the major problems since they went full 3D camera. Their world designs have been really bland and lifeless in full 3D which was never a problem in the fixed camera games.

Sounds like the combat, music, and overworld have finally got a needed face-lift. However, judging by a couple of those dungeons you showed… They may still be falling on their bland square hallways that don't look like a real space thing for dungeons… Which worries me. Before anyone says it, yes a cave should be mostly empty, but it shouldn't have the same nine rock formations repeated ad nauseam at 90° angles. And that more technological looking dungeon that he showed also seemed a bit too boxy and repetitious to be realistic.

The last tales game I actually finished was Tales of Xillia and it was pretty bad for repetition. I'm really hoping they've sorted things out this time and based on what Karrak has said, they've made a lot of progress.

I also hope the token animal familiar doesn't have a voice like sand paper this time…

i totally get the hate for that sarcastic know it all type charcter, i completed tales of vesperia recently and a similar character (rita) there made it physically painful to get through the game.

I wanted to play this game but when the characters constantly scream their moves and stuff, that’s an instant deal breaker for me unfortunately 🙁

love this channel so much, I have played Tales of since 2008! Vesperia is my favorite, but finally there is a Tales that will replace Vesperia! Man I cannot wait!

My hype has now reached absolutely insane heights! Finally Tales of is getting the respect it's deserved!!

The Tales games have always been missing SOMETHING for me. Seems like Arise is no different, and I can’t explain it.

Oh hi there 👋
It’s nice to meet you.
