I'm enjoying Ys Seven, though something I wish it had is area maps. You have the general overall map of the game world (which is very general & is mainly used for fast travel) & the mini map in the corner of the screen so you can see what's immediately around you (and even then you have to equip an accessory for enemies, chests, & harvest points to show up on it, meaning it's very bare bones at default), but there's no way to access a comprehensive map of the area you're currently in.

This isn't much of a problem in towns or the over world, but it'd be very welcome to have them in dungeons (especially later on once they start becoming larger). It'd even be good if you had to find them in the dungeons before you could use them (like in Zelda).

A pretty small complaint in an otherwise very fun game, though.

Anyone else ready for Tales of Arise this weekend!

I was originally planning on holding off on it until later, but I couldn't resist getting caught up in the launch hype, lol. Oh well, it'll certainly last long enough to justify full price.

@RR529 I wish I could get it, but I haven't finished Berseria yet, and I have to wait until Christmas to get anymore games.

@RR529 ME!
I'm so excited to get it I've pre-ordered it and all the trailers told me this is a must-have.
One of the reasons I got a PS5 is now near.
The only thing I'm waiting for now are Project: Athia (now called Forspoken) and FF16.

Hi there!
I might be moody sometimes but I swear I'm not a bad guy. :]
I just have a lot on my plate.

RR529

@VoidofLight, Berseria's a pretty good game itself (I just played it myself last year). Have fun!

@Nephestinus, yeah, I pre-ordered it too (though just last night so it'll already be downloaded).

Yep, although I'm playing FF IV PR & then Life is Strange True Colors before getting into that, @RR529 .... I got a discount key awhile ago, too, lol

@RR529 I'm towards the end already, and it's been loads of fun I got to the fight with Aifread, and this game really knows how to pull on your heart strings where characters are concerned.

I think I am going to wait until it is on sale. Not particularly pleased about the monetisation and general lack of exposure these practices have been given by some outlets. Plus, while there was lots I enjoyed in the demo, a lot of it was just really overwhelming and not in the fun way. I was kind of hoping that it would feel better in the main game when you've worked your way through the systems from the start but reading some reviews, that seems like it may not be the case.

@Pizzamorg Yeah, the combat isn't for everyone. Also, by monetization, what do you mean? Isn't the game pretty much singleplayer only?

I still have cheap copies of Vesperia DE and Berseria to dig into first.

Really not a fan of the way combat works in these games based on the demos I've played, but I'm willing to try a couple and see if other elements win me over.

Arise does look VERY pretty.

Am I allowed to post external links here? If so: https://culturedvultures.com/tales-of-arise-microtransactions...

Pay to win in single player games is just rancid.

@Pizzamorg Yikes.. this makes it seem like there's going to be more of an artificial grind in this game in order to force others to pay for the microtransactions. It kind of sucks too, since I was looking forwards to the game, but now I'm just not going to bother.

The journalism around this has really annoyed me as well. People couldn't shut up about it when Ubisoft did it, but for some reason many major publications make no mention of this in their reviews at all when it comes to this game. This should be really the main topic around this game, like it was with past games that did the same stuff.

I did not know it had monetization like that.

I mean, maybe its like DMC5 where it does but its really easy to ignore but like...I still knew DMC5 had microtransactions.
