Recommendation of the Week

Thank you Johnson for your recommendation this week.
Tales of Berseria Animated Opening
You've probably heard this story before. A band of heroes must embark on a quest around the world to defeat a great evil that threatens the land OR An exiled prince must reclaim his lost kingdom from foreign invaders.

This....is not one of those stories.

Tales of Berseria (demo) is a story of a woman named Velvet as she embarks on a journey for revenge and....No, that's pretty much it. Self-serving revenge. She's out for a man who crossed her, a man seen by the world as a hero out to save the world. You could almost say that you were playing the villain this time around in this JRPG tale.

As with all other Tales games, you can count on Berseria excelling in two areas: gameplay and characters. Velvet's not alone in her quest for vengeance. Joining on her quest is:
  • a demon samurai, Rokurou
  • a self-proclaimed witch, Magilou
  • a cursed pirate, Eizen
  • a young child, Laphicet
  • an upstanding exorcist, Eleanor
You won't see a more rag-tag party like this in a fantasy JRPG. Each character feels like their own person with their own goals and self-interests. It was a moving journey for me to watch their party dynamic throughout the story, side quests, and little skits and see all these people start from simply using one another to accomplish their own objectives, to becoming steadfast and true friends by the end.

All in all, Tales of Berseria is a 'tale' of Emotion versus Reason, as opposed to the more traditional good vs evil. A tale that constantly had me invested all the way to the end thanks to its diverse cast of characters and fun gameplay.

While not certainly a revolutionary title compared to the tough competition out there in the JRPG world, Tales of Berseria stands as a strong game on its own and arguably one of the best in the series for me, sharing my top 3, along with Tales of Xillia 2 and Tales of Vesperia.

Also, Eleanor is best girl.
