Sorry for the double post today. I am at the lab for AC purposes and not for work purposes. I mean, I should be doing work but I can't get off my half-ass motivation. So, games...if only I had brought my DS with me...

Anyway, I have been playing lots of Tales of Graces f and I'm into the "f" part of the game (which wasn't included in the original Wii version) and the game's shipping dial has been turned up to 11. Well, not really that high but it is a dramatic increase and it feels like 75% of the conversations/skits deal with someone's romance or other.

But yeah, since I'll be talking about canon romances, this post will be full of spoilers. I have never been in a relationship so I may not understand exactly how they work, but there's a reason some canon romances work better than others, right?

Significant spoilers for Final Fantasy 8, Tales of the Abyss, Tales of Graces f )

So to wrap up, canon romances need to establish that there is an interest in both sides of the party before declaring a happy ending between them. Character development prior to a realization can also work too if the development of interest is purposely delayed for storyline purposes. Otherwise a sudden "this is the canon romance" declaration will be looked upon with disbelieving eyes.
Warning - slightly spoilerish for Tales of Graces f.

Anyway, so far the gameplay has been a lot of fun. It's quite different from Vesperia with no TP anymore but CC that is used for skills that also recharges during battle. It's hard to explain and better to just figure out as the game goes. Boss battles are harder than in previous games in my opinion but they allow you to retry boss battles instead of redoing cutscenes so that's a major plus. Also there is adjustable difficulty but I haven't messed with that yet.
