Hey guys! I love what you guys have done for Graces! I played through the game in Japanese on Wii when it first came out and it quickly became my favorite tales game due to the epic battle system. I know intermediate Japanese - enough to have no problems playing and understanding all the story and WONDERFUL skits and character interactions the game has, but some NPC banter is hard to figure out without a dictionary.
Later, when Graces F came out, I then played through in Japanese on PS3 like... 3 times (once including future arc) with various groups of friends loving every bit of it. Most recently, played through the English released version all the way including future arc and it was good to play through it in English once to hear the voices, even though they were mostly "meh" and Sophie and Pascal's English voices I greatly disliked. Sheria's was great though.
Anyway, I'm gearing up for yet another Graces playthrough this Thanksgiving with a different set of people and this time I would REALLY love to play this Undub version. They don't know Japanese so it's English, Undub, or bust. There's no way I can stomach another English playthrough. Shame really, I loved the Vesperia English voices a TON!!!, but I suppose a character like Sophie or Pascal is just not doable in the English language, though I thought Rita wouldn't be doable in English either but her VA did an amazing job!
Which brings me to my request. I own physical discs for both JP and EN versions of Graces so I'm ready to frankenstein me a JP-base (I want to use ALL DLCs, since I've never played with the DLCs before!!!) mamu, can you or anyone else for that matter, re-upload your fix pack "repack tools & fixed files - www.mediafire.com/?6p2gc473359l62v
(~127MB)" to MediaFire again or to any other host (usable in US)? It seems to have gotten taken down. I do not mind that the JP-base isn't 100% "perfect" like a US-base one, so long as I can use all the DLCs.
I greatly thank everyone, especially mamu, for their hard work! In case you all don't know, New Game+ with accel mode and 4 players on a really hard difficulty is just deliciously fun. Was very disappointed to find out when my Xillia pre-order came in that they completely crapped on the multi-player
I will not bother playing a US release of that one, but I can see where single player players might like the game even though the characters seem kinda haphazardly mixed together without any real good reason to travel together or good bonds/skits/interactions between them. To each his own I guess.
