TALES OF THE WORLD REVE UNITIA WALKTHROUGH PART I

So I decided to make a walkthrough of Tales of the World Reve Unitia.
Just to help anyone out there who can't read Japanese, but want to play.
However, I'm making this walkthrough on Bahasa Indonesia.
If there's anyone who want the English version, just let me know and I'll be happy to make one for you.
I will separate it into a couple of parts and here's part 1.

TALES OF THE WORLD: REVE UNITIA

Okay, I admit it...
When I saw the trailer, I immediately vow that I got to have it!
But considering that I do not  have 3DS Japan Region, I don't think I can have it.
After thinking and arguing and meditating, I finally decided to ask a friend who have a 3DS Japan Region to buy the game, 50-50.
She lend me her 3DS too, and recently I am off to another world to play it.
I am talking about...
TALES OF THE WORLD REVE UNITIA!


I am a fans of Tales of series, ever since I've played Tales of Destiny on Playstation One.
Even they don't really improved drastically in the graphics section, I never pay any attention to it.
I mean, I've played Tales of Hearts in CG Edition and it's just feels weird....
So I am glad that Tales of series decided not to go over the top for the graphics.... ^-^
Now, to the review!

20 YEAR OF SONY PLAYSTATION

What? Sony Playstation is 20 years old already?
Gesh, I didn't realize it...... I'm old!!!
Anyway, let's do a little reminiscence.

I play games since I was little, starting with Game & Watch.
Then head to PC, where I play Digger, Lode Runner, Pac Man, Donkey Kong and many more.
I loves King Quest, even though I only finish the 2nd one. ^^a
The first console that I know is not actually Sony, it's Sega Mega Drive and it's not even mine.
It belongs to my cousin, so I occasionally comes over to play.
And the first game that I play is Sailor Moon.
After that I started playing Street Fighters and some other games.

The first console that I've played


When I was in High School, my cousin bought Playstation and managed to drag me into playing it.
Most of my first game is fighting genre, like Soul Calibur, Street Fighters and so on.
When I was in college, a friend of mine introduced me to my first RPG, which is Wild Arms
AND I LOVE IT!
I guess that was the first time that I've fallen in love with RPG, especially J-RPG.
Wild Arms is my most memorable RPG, because I was stuck in De la Metallica for two weeks!!!
....... Internet access was limited at that time, so I have to try by myself and asking here and there.
When I finally finished Wild Arms, I cried because it feels good to save the world.
I continue saving the world in my second and also my all time favorite RPG, Final Fantasy VII!
...... And I keep saving the world until today,actually. ^^a

My second console that I've played


I have lots of fun with Playstation, trying all kinds of games.
Bishi Bashi (almost destroying the controller), Final Fantasy VIII, Xenogears, Suikoden and many many more.
I even borrowed my cousin's Playstation to play at home.
Then when Playstation 2 comes out, I started saving like crazy to buy one.
Accompanied by one of my friend, I bought Playstation 2 and loving it!
I keep continuing saving the world with Suikoden series, Final Fantasy X and X-2, Xenosaga series, Devil Summoner, Persona series and many many more.
The list is too long, but let's just said that I played quite a lot of games in PS2 from different genre.

IMHO, the best console!

I also started writing walkthrough when I have Playstation 2.
My first walkthrough was Digital Devil Saga: Avatar Tuner 2.
I still laugh when I read it again, so many error in typing and so on.
Playstation 2, IMHO, is the best console and they have soo many great games.
I always like games who have an interesting storyline and a gameplay that is not too complicated.
..... yes, I am simple minded, sue me.
My most memorable game from Playstation 2 is got to be Shadow Hearts II: Covenant.
I loves the story, the characters and all the jokes inside it.
If they have the PS3 version, I would love to buy it.
There's also Legaia Saga, Rogue Galaxy, Dark Cloud II, Star Ocean III and many many more.
I love you Playstation 2!!!

Then Playstation 3 comes.
It takes a long time before I finally manages to get one for myself.
I don't have too much collection and I have to admit that Playstation 3 doesn't have a lot of games for my taste.
Most of the games that I've played, I've borrowed from my friends.
I only owned a selected games, like Sengoku Basara series, Dynasty Warriors series, Metal Gear Rising, Eternal Sonata and some other games.
My favorite game in PS3 is got to be Tales of Xillia-2.
Why? Because it is the first time that I feel good by getting the Bad Ending.

Nice console, but few good games

I am not the kind of guys who are impressed by graphics.
Nice graphics is okay, but if the gameplay and the story sucks, I am not really interested in it.
And in PS3, I almost lost my love for Final Fantasy series.
While FFXIII is interesting, the sekuel (both XIII-2 and Lightning Returns) is not.
Now I just hope Final Fantasy XV which will be out next year (hopefully) can fix my love for Final Fantasy...

Now, let's talk about the handheld.
I have Playstation Portable and so far, haven't thought about getting PS Vita yet.
PSP is fun and they have some decent games, a bit more than PS3, IMHO.
I enjoy playing God Eater Burst, Dissidia, Genso Suikoden: Tsumugareshi Hyakunen no Toki, Growlanser series, Persona 3 Portable and many more.
My favorite game for PSP is Crisis Core Final Fantasy VII, in fact this game is the game that pushed me to buy PSP.
The second game that came close is Final Fantasy Type-0, if only the ending....  
Too bad that my PSP is broken now, so I can't play it anymore.

Small, but enjoyable

So, what's next for me?
Playstation 4 maybe?
I don't really know, so far the only PS4 game that managed to interest me is Final Fantasy Type-0 HD (even though I've played it on PSP before).
And considering how lame the internet access in my country, I don't think I can buy game Online.
Digital is cheaper, true.... 
But the effort to download it, at least for me, can be annoying.
2GB can take at least a day to download and considering the size of one game, which can be at least 8 GB, it could take about 3 days to do it.
..... And that if the connection is stabilize and not disconnecting in the middle of downloading.

But despite it all, I just want to say thank you for Sony Games.
Thank you for this 20 wonderful years!
Hopefully you will get better in the upcoming years!
HAPPY 20TH ANNIVERSARY!
