As our first Review Revisited, I absolutely wanted to present to you Tales of Graces f, the enhanced remake of Tales of Graces, a former Wii (and Japan) exclusive game. I wrote this review back in 2012, and I recall loving each minute I played. It was, hands down, one of the best RPGs I played on my Playstation 3 back then, and I’m still fond of it today.

I finally managed to get the Platinum for this game, after around 160 hours of gameplay. Here is a picture I took of my TV while grinding at the end of the game in the optional dungeon, just a bit before I got my Platinum trophy. Yes, I actually won that boss fight and got 3.24M exp! Those of you that have played this game will know that this is a LOT of experience!
Do yourself a favor, and give it a try! You can also get this game for almost nothing when its on sale on the PSN, and it is even often bundled with Tales of Xillia!
Tales of Xillia follows Jude Mathis, a clever medical student attending school in the capital city, and Milla Maxwell, a mysterious woman accompanied by four unseen beings. The kingdom of Rashugal has been experimenting with a powerful source that led to draining the mana from the world. Realizing the harm it is inflicting on the world, Jude and Milla set off on a journey to destroy it and restore the mana back to the world.
Tales of Xillia is the latest Japanese-RPG from Namco Bandai Tales of Studio and is also a milestone for being part of the 15th anniversary celebrations of the “Tales Of” franchise. The core theme of this game is said to be a “RPG of Unwavering Convictions”. Intriguing… !

Originally slated for release on August 24th, the PC edition of Dark Souls was announced with exclusive content consisting of bosses, dungeons, and more.
