Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World Part Two: Regal Didn’t Start the Fire

January 22nd, 2010: I’ve determined that monsters need to be level 14 to evolve.

Why do Ogres look just like Blanka from Street Fighter?

Chimeras are so cute in this game. They’re more like chimera… puppies?

I don’t know why you can’t name your monsters. The names that the game picks for them mean less than nothing to me.

Naming things in games can also help you remember what they are, like a mnemonic device.

Not being able to name your monsters is just one of the problems with the “mons” aspect of this game. The others are waiting in the Final Thoughts. Continue reading Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World Part Two: Regal Didn’t Start the Fire

September 21st, 2009: Director urged Axel to leave.
“But, I never meant to hurt those kids…!” pleaded Axel.
“Ehh, that’s the risk you take when you take people hostage,” stated the Director plainly.
Suddenly, Axel said he had to “find himself”. Then, he called a taxi, and it picked him up.
“I just had a weird chill run down my spine,” said Adell. “I’ve got a bad feeling…”

SEPTEMBER 11TH, 2009: Leaving the mixed monster mansion behind, we visited the Poisonous Swamp. Then, we got attacked by zombies.
After the battle, Tink explained his plan to kill Adell to Rozalin. The frog hedged his bets on a level 100 monster eating Adell.
“I see… you are evil,” praised Rozalin.
“Au contraire,” countered Tink. “I am not as evil as you… Oh ho ho ho ho ho!”
“All who oppose my father must die…” Rozalin thought to herself. “He desires a fight, so his fate is already sealed. But if that happens, how will Taro and Hanako feel…”

The Last Remnant: May 29th, 2009 – September 22nd, 2010

MAY 29TH, 2009: I found the second Godstone. It was a reward from the quest “The Silent Soul”. If the “Scaredy-cat Magus” that gave us the task had any idea how important the godstones are, she wouldn’t have given it up so easily.
