Tales of the Abyss

Right, fine I'm caving.

After all this drama, outrage, scandal and out of court settlements. I'm just going to give you guys what you want. And that is apparently another half hardhearted incite into yet another 3DS game. Eat it up chumps.


Right so. Tales of the Abyss, a wonderful little gem, a PS2 cult-classic remake for the 3DS.  I jumped on this title as I was a huge fan of Tales of Vesperia on the 360. Its an expansive story driven RPG, and a fantastic port at that too! However! That is a double edged sword... Its a port it's really not meant to be a pick up and play title I was enjoying it on the commute until the story progressed to... Dungeon number 1, which left me with little to no save points. I mean that is fine for a PS2 title, sitting there 15 years ago in front of a TV, but the game pushes you to go through a dungeon. Which means you either just have to close the DS and hope that the batteries don't run out, or time how far you get into the dungeon and how long it would take to get back to the last save point. Not fun... Just gimmie a quicksave Namco! Its not a game breaker!

This crippling point aside, I love the game, the character acting the RPG elements, it's almost flawless in its appeal.

But... How do you find the right time to play it?

Love and, well fuck you I'm a commuter,
