Oi hey there. As you can probably tell, your local Tales Maniac dwells here. What's Tales some of you ask? A shame that you have never beheld the miracle that is the Tales of JRPG series! It's a game series created by the company Bandai Namco, which I refer lovingly to as Namdai.
So, you want to know more about me? Well, you can call me Cherry. I'm not entirely sure how old I am -I've time travelled so much that age has lost meaning. I'm pretty sure I'm less than a century old though.
In the party, I stay in the back as a ranged character. I haven't had much combat experience, but I've only training in Recurved Archery for nearly three years. Regardless, I am a registered FITA member, and I have earned a Bronze Medal for the only Provincial Tournament I have taken part in.
To make up for my lack of combat expertise, my years of experience with a hardcore Scout group has undoubtedly left me with invaluable survival knowledge. I am most familiar with temperate forests, and I have a good knowledge of Waterways (My specialty being flat water canoing). Oddly enough, my other area of expertise is deserts.
If you'd like to know me a bit better, feel free to drop me a PM; I don't bite. I welcome the chance to talk more about the Tales series. But be warned: don't even think about that shiny "Add to Friends" button, that's reserved only for people I know well, with the special exception of Tales Cosplayers.
Speaking of Tales Cosplayers, I'm currently running a few myself, and you can find them lower down on my profile under "Active Party".
Like most other Tales fans, my introduction to the series was Tales of Symphonia
for the Nintendo Gamecube. An amazing game, it somehow turned a flat story stuffed with Mary Sues into the most amazing experience of many people's gamer lives.
Since then, I have played several more games, including Tales of the Abyss
, Tales of Vesperia 360
, Radiant Mythology
, Tales of Destiny
, Tales of Destiny II (Not Eternia!), Tales of Symphonia 2 : Dawn of the New World, and Tales of Phantasia
. I've faithfully watched all of the OVAs and Animes, watched videos of the Graphic Novels (Tales of Fandom), watched skits (Viva Tales of!), followed news, and read the Mangas.
Currently, I'm waiting to play Tales of Graces when it's released in North America, and Tales of Innocence when the translation group Absolute Zero
releases their translation. I am also waiting for a different group to translate Tales of Hearts. I'm also hoping desperately that Tales of Vesperia PS3, Tales of Versus, and Radiant Mythology 2 will be released in North America.
