Tales of Vesperia "Definitive Edition" |OT| Yeah, that one....

First time playing the game here.

Is it normal to be stuck against the 1st boss ? He's way harder to beat than the enemies I encountered so far.
Yeah, just keep at it and play defensively. Vesperia's opening's a bit rocky difficulty-wise due to how few tools it gives you. As a tip, attacking while in free-run can stun him and let you get in a quick combo.

You don’t get achievements for playing on easy? I’m playing on normal and getting achievements but my mate on easy and he isn’t getting those secret missions
You get extra grade from doing secret missions, but easy mode has a grade multiplier of 0. Could be why he isn't getting any achievements?

Edit: Apparently you can still get them if you're playing on easy.

Playing with the Switch Pro controller, they really need to deadzone the analog diagonals in the menus. Like 50% of the time I press right, it also goes down.

Definitely a step up from the shoddy Symphonia port and the iffy Berseria one. But yes, some people are seeing stuttering, and there's a few niggling issues with controllers/input (a lot of it seemingly stems from the game assigning inputs to "Player 1" and "Player 2".)
Random question. What was wrong with the PC version of Berseria?

The PC port is pretty good. It uses about 50% of my GTX1080 at 4K 4xMSAA. The game looks great considering how old it is, especially the high-resolution interface and text, which are always a big plus IMO. The only thing missing is ultrawide support.

yeah, this boss in particular is annoying because he air juggles you and you can't recover yet. Later on you will be able to jump out of a juggle like that but for now you just gotta heal up and do your best.

Where and when to get the dlc costumes?
They're in your inventory. Scroll all the way to the right to the icon that looks like an Internet-ish symbol and use the items there to unlock the titles. Then go to your titles for each character and they'll be there

He didn’t get any unfortunately + Gattuso’s fight isn’t considered a secret mission? Because if it does I didn’t get an achievement after beating him

I remember it had such a bizarre controller input problem that I had to set up 3 virtual joysticks to work around it. Also it had some weird framerate limiters and I installed a "Special-K" mod an played it that way.
Damn, i got lucky. I was fortunate not to have any issues. Played at 1440p with no skipping. I did not exceed 60 FPS though.

You only get Secret Missions if you perform a certain optional action during the fight. For Gattuso it's either to stun him with the flowers, or maybe it's hit him / knock him down after stunning him, I forget the specifics.

You can eventually go back to get secret missions at the end, so even though there are lots of missable events, Missions aren't one of them, thankfully.

Maybe he didn't meet the criteria for said secret missions? They're extra things you have to accomplish during certain boss fights.

Just started playing... I forgot how much i love this game. I always watched the intro because of the song and it's no different. Cant wait to fully dive in.

Back when i was in the uk, the 1 year wait for them to bring it over was so fucking painful... arrgh. Had to play Star Ocean 4 (lol) to curb my RPG fix.

I didn't know Vesperia was being released so early in the year.
I still can't decide on XB1 or Switch ver. >.>
Same here.
What version are people getting? I've narrowed it down to Switch or PS4 since I know I'll eventually buy it again on PC when it hits the Humble store (for like $12 like Berseria is right now).

Got my Switch cart! Field/Town framerate's definitely a little wierd since there's some noticeable judder when the background scrolls, but I'll deal. In battle framerate seems solid, but the real litmus test is once you have Karol, Estelle and especially Rita in the party.

The New VA is definitely noticeable but I'll get used to it. I'm just glad they kept around Troy's original work, since it's probably my favorite of his roles.

Cant wait for people to get to Gattuso
lmao, Gattuso always manages to get one over on me at least once a playthrough, even when I know how to handle him.

Talk about a wake up call boss.

Gattuso is the 'did you know you'll prob need to bind an elemental weakness spell (rita's fireball) to your shortcut sometimes instead of braindead attacks' - the boss

Replaying Vesperia makes me realize how much i miss the old Tales of game design.

Sure i liked Berseria a lot thanks to awesome cast, great story and combat system BUT the overworld, copy&paste dungeons and the god damn awful equip system (srsly fuck this crafting system) quite often brought me close to quiting the game thats how bad it was.

Gamecube controller on Switch version is pretty damn comfortable. Too bad that unless I use a 3rd party controller that there isn't an extra shoulder button for use with the Artes Ball later on (lets you equip more artes at once while holding L1)

I was honestly considering giving it a try with the adapter, since it wouldn't be too far off from Symphonia's old scheme.

Any noticeable input lag?

Do you mean
Zagi
?
If so, I'm relieved not to have been the only one to have had difficulties in defeating him. My suggestions is to do as many combos as you can rapidly.
