I've never watched the opening though so it's still a spoiler for me.

As soon as the game was confirmed to be Xillia 2 I lost interest for a while until they confirmed a localization for the first game, so I never really followed the news related to it that closely.

Well, if you wanted to go in completely blind and don't even want to know things from the game itself before you hit "New Game", then yeah you shouldn't come into this topic.

I kind wish they did more to the returning Xillia characters than just change their art design. Since Namco made an effort of giving Ludgar three different fighting styles and weapons, they should have given the other characters alternate styles as well.

As long as it's not plot related I don't really mind. The number one thing I'd like not be revealed though is the main antagonist which ends up becoming the final boss. That'd ruin the whole game for me.

I'm already aware of the modernized world of the game (Elympios), the main character is a adult man named Ludger, there's a new young girl that's prominently featured in the story and the game has a Persona-like choice system which affects progression. That's about it really.

How did Ludgar fair in this year's Character poll?

The choices don't really affect much at all. It basically affects one of these things:

1) Which characters' affections are raised
2) Which responses you get from the rest of the skit
3) Whether you get an extra short scene during cut scenes

That's all until the very end. Rather disappointing, to be honest. With the exception of a couple of skits (and I mean the number can be counted on one hand), there's always a "best answer". Ie: this choice gives you another scene, this choice gives you nothing. Or this choice gives you affection, this one doesn't.

IIRC, no character poll for tales fes 2013. I don't think the popularity poll is held every year.

Eh, that's kind of like Persona social links I suppose. Guess I can't expect much choice depth from an entry in a franchise that's never done such a function before now.

Does the affection boost linking ability with that character or something?

I think you get skill books and stuff as you advance the affection gauge. The top 3 levels, if I recall, include a really nice skill book for the non-Ludger character (unfortunately, I think this is the way you get Leia's Item Everyone skill), a dual Mystic Arte for the two, and the ability to use the character in the post-game dungeon. I forget which of the top 3 levels gives which, though.

There was no general Tales popularity poll that included Xillia 2, but there was a Xilla 2 specific poll:

Quote:
1. Ludger
2. Julius
3. Jude
4. Gaius
5. Milla
6. Alternate Milla
7. Leia
8. Alvin
9. Victor
10. Elise
Supposedly this was the source, but apparently the site is gone now and I can't find any alternate sources.

Sure there is. The left option is funnier, so I win if I select that one

Just like the right option is clearly the better choice for this skit:

I somehow knew they'd just revoice this trailer


anyway if I'm right, that was Julius' english voice
but at the end of the eng trailer, it's still Julius' while it's Ludger's on the JP one
or maybe that was Ludger on the eng trailer? bah, needs more trailers

I recognize the voice, but not sure who it is. It's definitely someone I recognize from Fullmetal Alchemist... I think it's either Hughes, Hoenheim, Father, or the "announcer" who does the episode recap at the beginning and preview at the end.

if you meant the JP trailer
Julius' voice actor is Toru Ohkawa, whom voiced Roy Mustang from the FMA anime before Brotherhood

if you meant the english one, well... I don't know

Meant the English one. Roy Mustang's English VA already voices Gaius too.

Nice coincidence though.

Hi, just thought I'd ask, since I just beat Xillia.
How does Xillia 2 compare to Xillia 1 in terms of gameplay, story, etc? Would you guys say that it's generally better or worse?
