Tales of Arise





Tales of Arise 


I have played the Tales video games for some time now. I am very thankful I had the money to purchase Tales of Arise on the PS5. No clue what was going on with the PR and Marketing for this game. They remind me of ostriches that stick their heads in the sand whenever we communicate with them. Bandai Namco Entertainment claimed Tales of Arise would deal with more mature issues and themes. Death is pretty constant in Tales of Arise.

The issues families will have with Tales of Arise are blood, violence, lack of attire, enticement to lust, bad language, false gods, and more. Some of the characters within Tales of Arise are more complex than ones from previous Tales video games. The Renan conquered the Dahnan three centuries ago. We take the role of Alphen who feels no pain and has a mask on his head with no memory. Alphen meets up with Shionne who wants to conquer all the Renan lords. They team up for this goal since it also frees the Dahnan.

Multiple difficulty settings can be chosen and there is a nice healthy amount of skills that can be learned for each character in Tales of Arise. There is also attire choices that can be worn thanks to owls we find along the way. Slavery is a major part of Tales of Arise. Ultimately it is about liberating the slaves from their oppressors. You can apply this a plethora of ways to our world and our lives. I will not delve into that though.

Enemies are seen so you know what you will battle and when once you run into them. We then transition into a battle screen where the special skills are generally the only thing that work well. The normal attack in Tales of Arise is about worthless. There are also more super powered attacks that can be used when they charge up. Two characters can work together and launch a powerful skill attack on the enemies (usually when their health is really low). Collecting items will allow you to improve your weapons into something more powerful. Armor is found and bought. Accessories can be crafted.

I have enjoyed streaming Tales of Arise on Twitch and converting those streams into videos for our video sites. Many of the videos can be seen on our website as well. Tales of Arise looks nice and it sounds good. There is plenty of emotion in this game. The story felt really predictable and boring to me.
