Tales of Xillia: Playthrough and Discussion
Hey everyone, I thought we've had a lack of game specific threads lately. Why not convene here to talk all things Xillia while we're playing through the game?
Feeling kind of lazy right now, so I won't say too much. Just got through the Deepwood yesterday, and my general impression of the game is very positive. Already I can tell that its going to be competing between Eternia, Vesperia, and Graces for my favorite Tales. Ended up picking Milla to start out with. Someone mentioned that she has a weird lisp in another topic, and its definitely noticeable. At first I didn't like her voice at all, but it grew on me immensely as I began to understand her character. Combat is really fun as usual, but one thing that is kind of infuriating is that pressing up can make your character jump when you don't intend to, at least with Milla. Its like playing Melee/Brawl without using tap jump, and if anyone knows how to change the controller setup then by all means let us know. Like Graces, I started out picking hard and was pleasantly surprised to find Xillia somewhat difficult, but as I've been leveling and getting accustomed to the flow of battle it's become easier. Feels like I've played enough battles to unlock the next difficulty, but maybe not, so I'm left wondering if additional modes like Chaos are unlockable.
As I've said with Graces before it, there's nothing like good ol' Tales on a console.
