    The Definitive Lloyd Irving Thread - LLOYD SURVIVES THE SLAUGHTER!

    I will prefer Scott Menvill, hands down ! I love his voice, and unfortunately, hate Brian's. I was so triggered when I heard Lloyd's voice in ToS DotNW. But as for the reprise of the role... Difficult question. We know that Sakurai loves to make references to the origins of the character he...

    The Definitive Lloyd Irving Thread - LLOYD SURVIVES THE SLAUGHTER!

    Sakurai was actually asked about Cless when Lloyd's Mii costume was released. In a interview, he respond "I really think it had to be Lloyd." That's one of the main argument that support the idea that Lloyd would be chosen over any other Tales of protagonist. But yeah, the fact is a JRPG...

    No it's the fact that Banjo is indeed, what we call an exception, that makes my argument strong. The purpose of an exception is to be rare. That's where I stand : Lloyd has low (not zero) chance because it seems that DLCs are focusing on marketing moves. There probably will be one or two DLC...

    The Ultimate Life Form ~ Shadow the Hedgehog for Smash Ultimate! (Maria...)

    Hi everyone ! It's a bit late, but I want to join the support list of a certain black hedgehog. Shadow being one of my favorite video game character and my top 3 most wanted for Smash (after Isaac and Lloyd) since Brawl era, I think I'm at the right place. As many fans, I would prefer him as...

    The difference with Vesperia and SNK, is that a new game was launching just after the release of Terry. Nintendo seems to use the DLC to advertising new content. Even if Joker profits very well to Sega, Nintendo has still something to win since a spin off game is scheduled to the Switch ! What...

    Piranha was decided to be a very recognisable character in order to go well with the pre-order offer, Sakurai just decided that he didn't want a main hero or main antagonist. So yeah, there was still a marketing issue. But as for the Plant, we don't know how much Sakurai had control with the...

    The Definitive Lloyd Irving Thread - LLOYD SURVIVES THE SLAUGHTER!

    It has to be Lloyd, he's the face of Tales of for the Western public AND the most wanted tales of character for Smash. They probably use Lloyd's arrival as a chance to promote ToArise though, via music, mii costume or spirit events (if Lloyd gets in) I think the main thing we should focus on...

    Wow, I never expected Tales of would beat Botw 2 in most anticipated games, even in Japan ! Being my favorite licence after Zelda, it's nice to see ! With Banjo still the only exception, I still think Nintendo is counting heavily on the Fighters Pass to promote any games/dlcs with an...

    You sure ? I see the same thing whatever the angle of his model in game. Actually, it's also the same thing for it's Mii Model in Smash 4. Even if the "shorter" sword is tilting toward Genis, assuming the two swords are equals in size, the two sheaths should be touching each other. But the...

    The Definitive Lloyd Irving Thread - LLOYD SURVIVES THE SLAUGHTER!

    It's what I thought too for several years, but if I remember well, the design doesn't match. Mumei don't have the thin part at the start of the blades, and the hilts are black. Lloyd's swords can't be obtain in the game, and doesn't seem to have names in the anime either. Also, something that a...

    I agree with cosmicB, I don't see what FFCC has to do with ToS, wich are both some of my favorite games on NGC. The combat system and the exploration are completely different things, along with the story. Tales of Symphonia is is a "semi"-real time ARPG (I don't know the specific term in...

    The Definitive Lloyd Irving Thread - LLOYD SURVIVES THE SLAUGHTER!

    Yuri is waaaaaay better than Lloyd in midair. As I said, it mainly due to ToS gameplay limitations (even if Lloyd sucks even more in ToS:DotNW). It was just an assumption. He doesn't need to have a huge weakness anyway (like Joker and Banjo). But yeah, if Lloyd would have a downside to balance...

    The Definitive Lloyd Irving Thread - LLOYD SURVIVES THE SLAUGHTER!

    I never knew there was special techniques which can't be triggered outside Overlimits (aside the Hi-ougi). Or maybe you're talking about some ex-skills ? Since it only depended of some passive skills, I didn't specify that indeed, overlimit can be somewhat enhanced by the exsphere. As for...

    Lloyd A lot of Tales of protagonists are pretty intercheangeable since they use a lot of similar Artes (techniques). They all own some signature moves though. Lloyd has this particularity to mix a lot of artes into one arte. Other Protagonist do the same, but he's the one who got a load of...

    Not so high, unfortunately, there's too many other worthy fighters even if 6 slots sounds like a lot. ToS may be my second favorite game and Tales of my second favorite franchise, I must admit there's a lot of characters who also diserve their place in Smash, and have also a lot of support (and...
