    I love Magilou. Can't stand bienfu, though.

    I haven't got around to playing the Xillias yet to compare. I do recall Zestiria maps feels ng too big at times though.

    And yeah, I liked Magilou and disliked Bienfu too. Didn't like the amount of duplicate items needed.

    Yeah, the Zesty maps were very big. That wouldn't have been as much of a problem if there was any reason at all for it - some decent architecture to look at, some collectibles to find, etc. But they were bland and empty. In Berseria, you have mercifully smaller areas, dotted with Katz Souls (I am going to lose myself in the fashion menu for sure).

    I haven't met Bienfu yet, but I disliked Normins in Zestiria, so I'm sure I'm in for a great time when I do D:

    The first big plain in Zestiria looked nice with ruins etcuntil you realised how huge and laborious it was to cross and later areas being blander (the desert). I can't remember if Zestiria had any form of 'vehicle' for faster traversal (as well as the bottles that teleported you), thankfully Berseria does.

    Nope, just wind step as a support skill. It wasn't nearly good enough for the size and blandness of those maps.

    Well I must say, I greatly enjoyed Velvet just nonchalantly lopping off a lizardman's tail while he was busy monologuing.

    I had to stop there as I found myself falling asleep at the controls a number of times, with Velvet just running into a wall multiple times :)

    Looking forward to getting back on it later.

    Did a skit just link this game to Symphonia, or am I reading too much into things?

    There's a skit where Eizen talks about where his coin came from, and it's pretty much just a long list of Symphonia references. Well, and Phantasia, but that game is linked to Symphonia in the same way that Zestiria and Berseria are - set in the same world, a thousand years apart.

    I'm still getting big Xillia vibes from this. I know the teams merged years ago, but if you told me Zestiria was a Team Destiny game and Berseria a Team Symphonia one, I'd believe you.

    So I went looking around the web trying to figure out why it's reminding me so much of the older game. Turns out Berseria's director was the lead designer on Xillia. So maybe that's why?
