mentioned it before, but something that didn't bother me so much at first with Arise actually irked at me a fair bit more over time

I wish the skits had the older style portraits

they didn't have as many animations, but the ones that were there were super dynamic

gave a lot of personality to each character

dozens of skits in and they don't feel as memorable because of that

though the dialogue is good

As someone who plays with subtitles on solely for the reason of pointing out text mistakes, Arise has an alarmimgly high amount of them. Worse than Berseria, lmao

Very interesting choice of a song here. It's a banger but it's so weird to hear it coming from a Metroid advertisement at least.

I don't know if Nintendo just got the license the song for the sake of the commercial or if it's from the game itself but either way, this makes me more excited.

Tales of Arise mystic arte animation ratings so far... Meh.

Will say i could never really get any of the Lv.2 or higher Mystic Artes to activate. I got Alphen's by accident but all the other times, i could only get the Lv.1. Guess i just suck.

As for the AI, lol. Aside from Law, i can count the number of times i saw the AI do their Mystic Arte with one hand.

Probably because since it's the first time Tales has looked this good, they wanted to show off the character models at any given opportunity.

At any rate, the shift to 3D makes it feel like Xenoblade Heart-to-Hearts and also i like to slander Tales a lot so i don't really mind the change. And speaking of, i will advocate for making skits be like Heart-to-Hearts. It's neat but the fact that you can view them literally the moment they unlock, sometimes multiple in a row, kinda brings the game to a screeching halt sometimes. 

This is not an Arise thing, this is a Tales thing.

I don't think we played the same game. Arise had a few glaring ones yeah but it's nowhere near the level of Berseria.

Conversation between Shionne and Rinwell in battle about wanting to stay away from the enemies is just one example. What the text says on screen is not at all what they say in game. 

Half the time there are lines the character says but the text doesnt show. So yeah, im pretty sure i read that right. I'd consider myself an expert at pointing out text errors, really.

That's all Tales of games, though.

Aight but tbf, my attention is not focused on the little text that shows up to the side of the screen.

More examples: ressurection arte, Shionne says Resusitation, lmao. Scarlet Vortex is apparantly Scarlet Inferno now.

Ehh but these are cases of to-mato, to-ma-to.

I'm talking more about when the text doesn't match what's being said or, in Berseria's case, the text is just flat-out not a sentence.

That doesnt mean it doesnt exist? 

I guess, I dunno, it should still be accurate imo.

Have you watched half the skits? I can hardly name any where it DOESNT happen!

probably last minute text changes that va didn't get to voice. Voice over is usually done quite a bit before release.

it's still surprising to see text slip-ups like that in 2021 with localizations

or straight up typos

think what's happening is the voice acting is based off the Japanese script but then the text kinda like.....isn't. Would explain a lot of the "to-mato, to-ma-to" instances but it doesn't explain the text straight-up not matching what is being said.

Sure but if i didn't really notice it, it probably wasn't a big deal.

I watched all of them and i feel like i would know if i saw any egregious examples of text not matching the voice.

Again tho, i ain't really counting instances where the text says "yes" but the voice says "yeah".

But some of them are way off. Berseria had this as well, not to mention Vesperia. 

Estelle "Yuri, we should leave a message for Patty at the inn..."

Yuri "I told you he's fine!" 

Lmao its funny considering the context.

Thats not what i mean, thats just the VA putting their personal take on a word/saying.

My point is, it's only a problem if the text does not match at all.

Alphen saying "Scarlet Inferno" while the text says "Scarlet Vortex" isn't gonna cause me to lose sleep at night.

Holy sheet cakes, the other portal/Halls of Tribulation boss fights are insanity! Why on Earth does every single enemy have to gain BP simply for me using any ability? I'm amazed I survive as long as I do. I've grinded up to level 70 on all my characters, nabbed a heckuva lot of job levels (it goes by super quick now- 15 minutes and boom from 1 to 15), and yet I still drop like flies. The first one really was the outlier in terms of difficulty. I can bring a Shieldmaster in theory able to tank anything, I can bring a Spiritmaster with group Reraise and group full HP resurrection, I can have a Salve Maker drop 100% HP & MP-restoring buyable Elixirs on everyone, and it isn't enough. Three or four enemies taking four actions their every third turn at the latest is ludicrous.

Yeah, the last job levels aren't worth it. But I'll keep trying a few more times. I do like these fights, since having the various classes remixed together in enemy hands is interesting, but the BD and BS takes on this idea weren't as brutalizing, not that I remember. Other than the Conjurer-Black Mage-Summoner-Salve Maker fight in BD, that I had to Stillness + Shippujinrai cheese.

Man, shame Jorwan isn't recruitable. Could've used more mages to compensate for any potential fuck ups on the irresponsible player's part.

He was going to be, but was cut due to time constraints.

Unpopular take time! I'm... Not really feeling Arise' combat system overall. Its got alot of minor flaws/issues that kinda hurt the gameplay too much imo. 

Ofc that could change later on, but so far im skeptical about it.

This is someone I talked about back when I just started playing. The streamline changes will do a lot to bring in newcomers to the series, as well as being more enjoyable for those who couldn't really get into the series before (see: me and Shrimpy). On the flip side, series veterans might feel the changes are too much and would much prefer the traditional LMBS.
