Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World

If you like Tales games, and you have a 360, run, don't walk, to your nearest gamestore and buy Tales of Vesperia. That's all I have to say right now.

I did, actually. I'm about 7 hours into it but so far it's not nearly as good (story-wise) as ToS was. On the other hand, ToS took a while to get going so hopefully that's how Tales of Vespiria is too.

post your picture

That's me at a bar (obviously on the right) with a friend of mine. Her roommates were bar-tending that night so we got free drinks. All in all, a good time!

Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World

I don't know about the rest of you, but I really enjoyed the last Tales game on the GCN, so the upcoming sequel is looking really cool. This isn't a typical Tales sequel, because, like Final Fantasy, the Tales games have never been direct sequels (i.e. same characters, time periods), but this one is. It's sort of like what happened with FFX and FFX-2, except I'm really hoping it doesn't suck (because let's face it, FFX-2's story was horrendous).

You can read up on the info here. It's getting released later this year in the US. The only downside I see so far is that the original voice cast isn't returning, which sucks because they were (mostly) pretty good. On the bright side, the characters will all return and most will be playable (no one's sure about Lloyd), along with several newcomers.

Anyone else getting it?

I need help

I had the same problem with one of my images. You upload it, but the image never works. Quite strange seeing as how the first four images I posted worked fine.

Beloved Rapture

Wow, this is certainly a larger download than most of the games on here. I hope it's good!


Your mapping is top notch! Way to go. It looks almost like a RMXP game.

A Game Based On The Second Coming?

Would the main character be jesus? Would you be fighting against jesus? If so, wouldn't it be kind of futile since he's the incarnation of God and God cannot be destroyed?

And despite the fact that Christ already died, the future incarnation of his second coming is supposed to be more spiritual and all powerful, rather than human (like he was the first time), so how would you possibly stop him?

It's tough when you have to take down God. I don't see any reasonable way that anything in the "creation" can kill the "creator". The only way you could pull it off reasonably would be to completely change the concept of God, by making him a different kind of being altogether. For one, he can't be all powerful, because if he is then you wouldn't be able to kill him. He would have to be just some cosmic entity that sparked human life (sort of like in those 2001: A space odyssey movies with the giant black thing). Then, you'd have to re-examine the idea of Jesus, and that's a whole other ballgame.

Good luck! ;)

Sprite help

Awesome, thanks! I'll use these and I'll check out that other game for some reference.


CMS's are good and all, but make sure they look good too. It looks like your text and background are blended well, but I'd like to see some more variation in style, possibly even more pictures rather than sprites.


I love the panarama you're using there. It looks cool.
