Is there anything missable in the game?
Yea, this was one of my biggest criticisms of the 360 original. Going for the achievements(that demanded practically doing all missables) was kind of a nightmare and anxiety-filled challenge as I cautiously followed a guide or two and planned my progression with surgical precision. Always double-checking to ensure all is good before moving on with each story threshold.

I think my final gametime was close to 150 hours or more getting it all done(with a couple near heart attacks over close screw-ups on missed stuff the deeper I got). It was rough and I will -never- bother again being so OCD on a game like this...but I did really enjoy it despite all that madness!

A decade later and I'll casually take it in now despite forgetting so much. Damn the trophies, will be freeing.

Picking up my Switch copy after work. I’ve been dying for a new (to me) JRPG to play on the go, and this fits the bill perfectly. I’m not too concerned with the hanheld performance. The majority of my Xenoblade 2 play time was in handheld mode, so I can deal with frame drops.

I’m sure it’s been addressed a few times already but what’s the switch performance supposed to be like? It seems perfect for the switch but I can pick it up for PS4 or PC as well.

Going out to pick up a Switch copy now.

Warning dont download the free adventure pack. It will rob you of finding these stuff on your own.
You can download it but not actually activate it unless you want to. It's actually really handy to keep around for postgame grinding that'd otherwise take forever.

I picked this up on PC as I have a 1080ti and ppl here were saying it could do 4K/60. And so far it has, except the game is still not smooth. Micro stuttering happening around towns and in battles but it’s locked at 60. Do I need to manually cap with Inspector?

Also unless Im crazy I see no graphics options st all?? If I missed them can someone pint the way lol? Just trying to get it to run smoothly. WOW at those Reshade pics. I’ve never used that but may try it out today. The colors with it on are incredible :)

For the actual game it’s as great as it always has been. Tied with Abyss for my favorite Tales game (yes I’m one of THOSE people who looooved Abyss lol)

Sorry to ask again but I still haven't gotten an answer and I'm going to pick the game up in half an hour. Is the performance poor on the Switch version?

Usually indifferent about steel books, but that Repede SB is likely one of the best I've seen. Also, that premium edition is hands down the best LE Tales of put out yet.

Anyway, the game runs like a dream on my PC, i5 7600 & GTX 1060 6gb. I run it at 1440p too and it's been flawless 60fps.

What does the adventure pack entail that makes people not want to download it?
Basically cheat codes, which would ruin the earlier part of the game and might gimp your learning curve in the long run.

The game is working well for me on PC. No stuttering with my particular setup, which is 144hz gsync + RTSS limiting the game to 90 FPS to keep my GPU quiet.
My main complaint right now is that when the orange info windows pop up in-game, none of the controller buttons work to dismiss them. Only pressing enter on the keyboard makes them go away (or waiting a few seconds and they disappear on their own). This is extremely irritating.

So.

The game's recommended requirements seem like extremely bloated based on game play, not sure who at Namco wrote those up. The game is incredibly light weight.

I don't know, man. After already playing the game on 360, I don't mind getting a pseudo-New Game+ out of this remake. Also, there's a free costume pack, too!

This is the stuff in the adventure kit. To be honest, I don't remember what half of this stuff is, and with the way some of these items are named, I'm not sure how these are implemented into the game.

Not a fan of being able to miss a lot, especially with sidequests. Sounds like Legend of Heroes in that regards.

But will be picking up the PS4 version today after work.

Also, as a heads up to everyone, the brightness menu in game is laughably wrong. It wants you to clip the bottom FORTY EIGHT shades to black. It looks laughably contrasted if you do so. Just play by eye. The reshade I posted earlier adds some more contrast to it that helps make it reasonable.

Definitely stutters during gameplay.

1080ti, i7 6700k, 16GB DDR4.

I thought perhaps it was a streaming issue or something but even on my M2 drive there are stutters. I'm doing borderless fullscreen, rivatuner capped at 60fps. I think it's just the game.

Graphics options are near the top. It's a settings menu you have to enter within the settings menu.

Sidebar: I'm shocked to see that this thread has 3x's as many post than that of the New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe OT. I mean, sure, Vesperia is a JRPG and it is released on every console, so there might be more to talk about than a 2D platformer, but it's still a little surprising to me.

The thing is.

Everyone waited and bagged and hoped and bagged and demanded and hoped and bagged to ever get another Vesperia version, no matter on which platform and we finally got it on current gen, which still feels unreal.

The last time a Mario 2D game (Maker not counting) came out, most people were oversaturated and thought "Urgh, another one?"
And now it's just a definitive of the last one. I can see why this doesn't get much hype or at least not more as on Wii U.

So, the free adventure pack. I can download it and NOT use any of the level up and money bonuses, right? I want some of the items but I don't want to break the game.
Yes. They will appear in your inventory in the <EXTRA ITEMS> section with the individual names like 'Gel Set' and 'Pack o' Useful Stuff'. You can take the items but not the gald or however you wanna do it.

Pretty much. They break everything up piecemeal more or less so you can curate which of the perks you want to have access to while ignoring the rest that might break the game and/or lessen your overall gaming experience. It's quite smart.

Ok thanks for the infos. I am seriously bummed if there is no way to get this smooth on PC. The only reason I did t get PS4pro/X is I heard they had uncapped frame rate so I figured getting 60 would be better. I swear I have the worst fucking luck with PC games. I have a pretty powerful computer but inevitably can’t get something running properly and end up buying second copies of things on consoles. I’m gonna mess around with it like I always do and see if I can get anything to work.

I saw something about disabling controllers to enable keyboard and mouse to get past it on the steam forum. Supposedly saving would fix the issue. I tried this but after reconnecting my controller to resume the game still wasn't recognizing my controller input for some reason. I haven't figured this out yet, but maybe the steam forum has more info now.

I'[m using a DS4 via DS4Windows.
Thank you! Once I disconnected the DS4 controller I got through! But then if I quite game and launch game with the controller it stuck at that screen again! I'll keep testing.
