So… the comic kind of says it all.

A year and change ago I was playing Tales of Zestiria and in a very surprising turn of events, I kind of disliked it… disliked it enough that I quit 25 hours into the game.

Well, Tales of Berseria was great and referenced Zestiria… referenced it enough that I felt a need to finish the game.

…but I totally forgot how ToZ’s mechanics worked so… time to start from the beginning.

Oh god, Mikleo, you are so boring.  Oh god, Lailah, you’re so annoying.

Oh god, battle system, you feel soooooo slow.

Then again, compared to the offensive masterclass that is Berseria, any battle system would feel slow in comparison.
