Let's not talk about life/careers/crap for now, since I only seem to reluctantly care. Let's talk about the beginning of Tales of Xillia 2. Namely, how it really doesn't start off like any other Tales game. How it has a strange chapter system. How you have the dialogue select system. How you have the debt system.

But it is plenty Tales in the skits, the design. Jude is so freakin' Jude it's silly. He has a way of having awkward first meeting with people... And I am already headcanoning Ludger to be relatively shy, even though reticence /= shyness. I find him cuter that way. With a little bit of a stubborn/rebellious streak. That's how I plan to play him.

Still, it's only been like 2 hours of gameplay at the most, and I'm dying to play as Gaius.
I finally started my Tales of Xillia replay, Milla route, in earnest. For some reason it feels like the Milla and Alvin route, though, since I don't remember seeing as many close-ups of Alvin's face last time? Whatever. Focusing on the main plot so I can get to Xillia 2. It's definitely been worth the replay so far. Even though I played this game only a year ago, I feel like I should know the plot better. It definitely feels like a slow starter, but Rowen is with me now so all is good :D

Speaking of Xillia 2, I have tried my best to not look at all the shiny Xillia 2. I do let myself see some gifs sometimes. I just feel like there will be more skits that I will enjoy in Xillia 2. I don't even care if the plot isn't as good. I just want silly character stuff. Also I can totally deal with more of everyone in love with Milla and/or Jude. My ship for ToX1 was Jude/Milla though it was nowhere close to OTP. Just a rare time when I prefer a m/f ship in a Tales game. From screenshots and stuff, I see ToX2 contributes material for all the main Jude ships, or what I assume are the Jude ships - Jude/Milla, Jude/Alvin, Jude/Gaius. And also Jude/Ludger?

I also need to get to Xillia 2 because the outfits are better. A very legitimate reason to play a game XD
